We had an awesome stay at Seahorse Cottages. The beach was so close and grocery store and restaurants very near. The cottage was perfect for what we needed. The fridge wasn’t working but was fixed right away. We really enjoyed it!

Seahorse #3
4/5 stars
Our cottage was “as advertised”. The location was great with the cottage right on the beach and easily accessible to Publix and numerous restaurant options. I would encourage you to bring a shower caddy and a space heater if you are experiencing cool/cold weather. The kitchen was stocked adequately but very small if you are going to cook in. We ate in once and it worked out ok. It was convenient to the boardwalk to the beach and restaurants & bars. You will want to bring a power strip for your devices as plug ins are minimal. Any service needs were addressed promptly.

When we saw this listing it seemed to good to be true. ON the beach? No way. But yes. Seahorse #3 (the "Yellow Cottage") is exactly as pictured and more. Completely charming vintage cottage with modern updates whose back door leads to SAND. SKY. WATER. When you look out the windows, it's hard to believe you're not on your own private island and, when you step out into the private, sandy backyard, you'll find yourself well-away from the bustle of the larger resorts, but close enough to enjoy if you want to. Comfortable bed, updated kitchen, extremely responsive property management (the web app they send ahead of time is beyond helpful >> you'll be renting from professionals), incredible location.

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at the Seahorse Cottages in between Christmas and New Years. We travel quite alot but have never been to Treasure Island before but boy are we glad we made the trip. Cute little island with the Cottage being the perfect spot to enjoy it. We could walk to numerous restaurants, bars and shops, Publix was right across the street and we woke up every morning looking at sunrise over the ocean and then could enjoy sunset from the same spot which was our cottage so what more could you ask for. I woukd highly recommend a stay at Seahorse Cottages

Beautiful cottage! We loved that our stay was directly on the beach.It was so wonderful, especially the sunsets each night. They were both gorgeous, and breathtaking! The cottage, #3 (Pineapple) was close to everything. You could walk to the grocery(Publix), and restaurants(Sloppy Joes). Countless other restaurants, along with Johns Pass are also very close, less than a 10 dollar Uber fare away. Again we loved our stay and can't wait to stay again!We will definitely be back.Thank you so much!

This is a beautiful cottage. I love that you step out of the cottage onto the beach. It is very close to shopping and great food. We walked to all of the stuff we needed. Publix is literally across the street. So anything you need is right there. I love the fact that all of the staff was extremely helpful and friendly and very quick to answer any questions. We will definitely be back asap.

Seahorse Cottage #3 - Treasure Island, Florida
5/5 stars
The Seahorse Cottages were exactly as described and the views off the back and proximity to the beach and Gulf were even better! Our stay was short but we loved every minute of it! This was my first AirBnB experience and Liz and Charles made it almost too easy. Before I could even contact them they sent all the information that was needed and it was simple, quick and priced right! Thanks so much!

Perfect Vacation Spot
5/5 stars
My 13 year old son and I truly enjoyed our time in the "Rockin Robin" cottage right on the beach. We loved the location, fire pit, and close proximity to the beach. There's also a kid slide that is fantastically close, practically right out the door and straight to the beach. Renting all of the cabins is an excellent idea for a family reunion or for group lodging. The cabin was clean, cute, and affordable. You can't beat this deal!

Loved the Seahorse Cottages. LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION. It's great spot for groups who wish to rent something together since they have several cottages on the beach. The bonfire pit on the beach is fantastic. The cottages are cute and clean. Would highly recommend to families.

Quaint and Awesome cottage

Fell in love with these little cottages . I love that I was right on the beach. I like having the comforts of a home and all I have to do is bring my luggage and food. The kitchen had everything I needed to make great meals....and Publix was right across the street.

Awesome Location!
5/5 stars
This rental cottage was exactly what we wanted. It was just steps from the beach as advertised, across the street from a Publix and many restaurants within very close walking distance. If your goal is to be on the beach as much as possible and have a clean place to sleep and have some evening drinks - this is the place for you! It has no frills but had 2 bedrooms and beds, a bathroom and living space, perfect for us!

We loved our stay had a great time met some nice people. Would definitely like to go again next year! It was very relaxing and no one had a problem we all hung out together and listen to music and have a nice bonfire at night. Would definitely recommend this to my friends and family. As a matter of fact we will try and get more than one Cottage next year, so more of my family can be with us!

Relaxing and a Quaint Cottage.
4/5 stars
We loved the Cottage #3. It was quaint and allowed you to have a full view of the Gulf and direct to the beach. Easy access to all entertainment and shopping. Our cottage had a toilet that badly needs repaired. Each time we used it, it would rock and the floor would come up. We are not large ppl. The shower needed caulked again. The sofa would swallow you if we didn't put pillows and blankets under the cushions. The chairs were firm but dirty. The towels and wash cloths were as old as the cottage. The main thing that upset my wife was the constant emails saying we had one guest & no pets allowed. We reserved the room with the understanding that we had pets and 3 adults. Another email would come weekly and upset my wife again and I had to call each time, talk to a new person to verify that 3 guest, and pets were allowed. She had so many printouts in case we had problems. Other than that we had a wonderful stay at this cottage. Thank you for allowing our pets and responding to the phone calls.

Inhospitable and stingy
5/5 stars
We stayed a week in #3 we were looking for a rustic beach vacation. When we first walked in all three window air conditioners were running because it was hot. The one in the small bedroom was totally unusable because it was so loud I couldn’t sleep! The one in the other bedroom was also loud and spitting black stuff on the bed. The ceiling fan in the small bedroom was also terribly load so unusable. The place is just off of gulf blvd by a traffic light and people rip up and down the street so it’s quit noisy. There are old thin dysfunctional plastic blinds on the windows that don’t go down all the way with lots of street lights so you’ll need eye covers for sleeping. I asked about these two things and the “maintenance man” was going to take the air conditioner out of the window and try and figure out what was the matter with it. I said look at it it’s ancient and needs to be replaced. They brought me a floor fan instead. The two beds were horribly uncomfortable. . I will say the bedding was fine. When we arrived for our 8 night stay there were a few sheets of toilet paper left on the roll and 1 extra roll, there were also 3 smallish bath towels for two of us for the week. There’s no housekeeping while you’re there but A girl was cleaning a different cottage so I asked her about it she said that’s all we get! . The third day we opened the blinds out front and I discovered one of the windows didn’t even lock. It was broke. I told the maintenance man. He rigged it so it locked but it wouldn’t take much to get in those windows. The bathroom is in bad shape the shower head is installed for people who are about 4 feet tall, I’m 5’2” and had to squat to shower. As for the “fully equipped kitchen”. Dream on! There were dishes and coffee cups. There were 3 drinking glasses, 3 or 4 bent old eating utensils and a few things for cooking. The stove and refrigerator were fine. The living room furniture was dirty and uncomfortable . We had to put pillows on the couch to keep from sinking to the springs. The first couple of nights we were able to have a fire in the fire pit with provided wood which we enjoyed. Then the maintenance man came a built a box and put a lock on it so everyday we had to ask for more wood. Then he didn’t leave any out so we called the number provided for maintenance... it was busy for several hours... so we didn’t have a fire on our last night. Right down the beach you can get a room with housekeeping and a pool with two queen beds for about $30 less per night, we checked. There’s you have it folks !
- Debbie

Thanks for the feedback. So sorry for any trouble with the air conditioning units. We have gone through them, and replaced them as needed. We will go through the kitchen and make sure it is fully stocked up. Sometimes some items can "disappear" :). The wood for the firepit is generally not provided, but we do try to put some there when we can. We apologize if there was a misunderstanding with that. We appreciate all the suggestions, and we will continue to try to improve the experience for our Guests. Thank you!

Seahorse Cottages is a great little getaway place, very relaxing and casual, which is what you want at the beach. Think mountain cabin meets beach cottage. If you want high end comfort this is not for you, but if you want a laid back getaway at a bargain price this place fits the bill. Especially loved the location, walking distance to many good restaurants, with a top notch beach at your doorstep.

The cabin was everything we thought it would be. Conveniently located; the beach is out the back door and the grocery store is across the street. This worked out well for our family. We will be back for sure!

Another fantastic vacation at Seahorse Cottages!!!!
5/5 stars
We live in Cape Coral, Florida...only about 2 hours south of treasure Island. We have been staying at Seahorse Cottages for our Memorial Day vacation for at least the past 7 years and also rent again in September for our Anniversary! We love it there and so does our daughter, my Mother and our little dog Onyx! Yes, it is rustic, but it is located directly on the beach and everything is walking distance. The cottage is always clean and it presents such a relaxing environment. We have NEVER had a bad time at the Seahorse Cottages and will continue to vacation there as long as it is still available!!! We LOVE Treasure Island!!!
