We just spent five days at the Seahorse Cottages on Treasure Island and cannot believe how wonderful our trip was. We were in cottage #2, which was the perfect size for our family of five! You absolutely cannot beat the location. The cottages are right off of the beach and the view was lovely! The cottages have a wide variety of beach items (chairs, umbrellas, sand toys, buckets, etc.) which made our time at the beach perfect. Our kids loved grabbing their beach items for the day and digging in the sand and making sand castles. The outdoor common area with chairs, grills, and ramada covers was perfect for enjoying a morning cup of coffee or grilling up dinner each night.
Two things I would like to make note of for future travelers, cottage #2 did not have a DVD player while we were there so the iTrip DVD rentals might not be useful if that is the cottage you are staying in. We didn't mind all that much but we were looking for it one night so we could watch a DVD we had purchased earlier that day. The second thing to note is that you should be prepared to purchase paper products, coffee filters, and trash bags for your stay at the cottage. They supplied a "starter" pack which included one roll of toilet paper and one roll of paper towels. For a family or five for five days we anticipated that we would need to buy some things (like extra TP, shampoo, soap, paper plates so our kids didn't break the dishes accidentally etc.) but I was surprised that there were no coffee filters or trash bags. We ended up doing a large run for supplies at the Publix across the street and used the bags from that shopping trip for our trash bags. We also left all of the remaining supplies for the next family since we didn't want to throw away perfectly good toilet paper and coffee filters.
Over all we had a magical and fantastic trip! This cottage is a ideal if you want the perfect location on the beach. It is small and simple and was exactly what we were looking for. My kids (ages 6, 4, and 2) are already asking when we can go back and demanding that when we do, we stay at the Seahorse Cottages!
