“Family getaway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

This was our first time here as well as Treasure Island, and we LOVED IT!!! I would recommend this place for everyone...the room was very suitable for our family of 6 (3 adults and 3 children), the entire place was cleaned very well which we always look for especially having children. The full kitchen and having the washer & dryer inside the unit was also a big perk for our family! One thing that I did notice from other reviews were complaints about the washer/dryer not working properly. We did have that problem. Luckily, my husband knew it was a little trick of the door/latch from the dryer to actually make it work. I did make that suggestion to the hotel to have that fixed. Everything else worked just fine. We loved that the hotel was on the beach, and that we only had to walk over the walkway and then you're on the beach; there was no road we had to cross. My husband and I had all 3 children (all under age 6), and the what seemed to be a long distance to get to the shoreline (from the hotel) was not a big hassle at all. I also loved the fact that all the restaurants & shops were directly across from the hotel and all in walking distance. I recommend Ricky T's (breakfast was great, I had the salmon benedict), Snoballs (Treasure Island Gem special flavor is GOOD!), Middle Grounds Grill for dinner (get the Salmon).

We had a great time at this resort and enjoyed Treasure Island. The condo had newly updated decor with a beach theme. Very clean! Nice size kitchen that was pretty much fully stocked with dishes, pots, pans, etc.. Only think we had to buy was food for the fridge. The balcony is very nice and roomy with a table and 4 chairs. We enjoyed breakfast and dinner on the balcony every night. Overall size of the condo was great! Master bathroom was stocked with body wash, shampoo, conditioner and beach towels. The staff was very accommodating. We LOVED the view of the beach from our balcony, every room is beachfront! Condo is within walking distance to restaurants, shops and close to John's Pass Village. We will definitely be back to this place!!!

Stayed for 3 days recently with a family of 5, me, my mother, my sister, my wife and my daughter. There was plenty of room for all of us to be comfortable, with no issues at all. The unit is very similar to a small 2 bedroom apartment with 2 bathrooms, laundry, full kitchen and every single thing you could possibly need provided. The view was amazing from our 4th floor end unit. Balcony overlooking the Gulf, accessible from living room and master bedroom. Staff was very friendly and helpful, check in and out was a snap. Heated pool and hot tub, easy access to the beach, restaurants and shops within a good walking distance. It is a wide beach so it's a few minutes walk to the actual waterfront, but I didn't have any issues with that. I have vacationed in this area multiple times over the years and really enjoy it. Will definitely consider staying at the Surf Beach again.

Room Tip: Higher floor will give you a better view, and keep you a little farther from the pool noise.

We would recommend this property especially for a family. We rented 2 two bedroom units for our family of 11 (used 2 bedrooms and sofa beds for 6 in each unit). They were clean, well stocked and had a beautiful view from the balcony. The staff was very helpful and we were able to pay for a late check out as our flight didn't leave until 8 oclock at night. The property is very close to Walgreens, Publix, and McDonalds. It was a short drive to the Mall and about 45 minutes to the Tampa Airport. I bought boogie boards and sand pails at the Surf store across the road but there are beach toys and chairs by the stairs on a first come basis. We arrived on a Friday afternoon and there weren't any there but when we left on Wednesay there were lots of beach umbrellas, chairs, toys, etc. piled by the stairs. The pool is small but well kept and great for kids.

Room Tip: We rented units 401 and 403 which were both great. I liked to decor in Unit 403 as it was done in w...

We have stayed here before and will be coming back again as the resort is perfectly situated in Treasure Island with gorgeous views and quick easy access to the beach, and a clean pool.
The resort is close to grocery shopping but to enjoy the shopping at the mall in St. Petersburg or the malls in Tampa, a car is pretty much necessary. The spot is ideal for visitors from Europe to enjoy the life style opportunities that the US can offer. The area is calm, clean and well cared for, with a pleasant laid-back atmosphere. The staff is helpful and usually friendly. On the down side, the carpets are getting old as well as the pull-out couch, which is not very comfortable.. But all in all a very nice relaxing holiday.

Dear Larry R,

Your comments are greatly appreciated and we thank you for choosing Sunsational Beach Rentals, LLC, as your home away from home.
Thank you for the feedback about your recent stay at the Surf Beach Resort.
We are very sorry the sleeper sofa was not up to par, please, for future reference be sure to advise the front desk agent in regards to any questions or issues in the condo. Our staff is thoroughly trained to address any and all issues in a timely manner.
Due to busy season, unfortunately, the carpets do start looking a bit worn, please rest assured we have a team of carpet cleaners scheduled to come out to take care of that issue.

We hope your trip back to Europe was safe and we look forward to having you back with us soon.

Thank You,
Sunsational Management

Traveled with family, four of us total. Lucky to get a week when rates are lowest. Had end unit on 4th floor. No complaints at all. Staff very pleasant. Space was adequate for 4. Views are wonderful. Well stocked kitchen, plenty of towels. Unit was updated and very clean. Large balcony with sliding doors from master bedroom and living area. Great shower water pressure and plenty of hot water :) Can walk to several stores, shops. Made the right choice and would certainly consider staying again!
