We stumbled across Seascape on the internet, made a reservation, and thoroughly enjoyed our week in Gulfport. Minutes away from just about everything Florida has to offer, this quaint neighborhood is like Florida used to be, but rarely is anymore, and Seascape is an important part of that offer. Don't miss a stay in a bit of historical Florida, in a historic home. You won't regret it. We loved it so much, we did a virtual tour for Suzanne, be sure to ask to see it.

Awesome cozy and unigue

  • 5 of 5

We are checking out today and just wanted to say we had a really marvelous time in Gulfport Florida Kama staying at your unique Cottage. The plants and Landscaping were such a welcome from the city every time I sat on the front porch and felt the Bay Breeze I was very relaxed. The cottage was clean and decorated with cozy cottage style furniture that we found very Charming and comfortable. We were a little worried about the water view but at night we found it this it was so beautiful to watch the sunset and the storms come in. We walked to where the boats were and snacked on our light dinners as we watched the most beautiful sunsets I probably seen in my life.. the little town was only for easy walking blocks away and we managed to visit almost every restaurant they were all unique and very casual all the way to being very fancy whatever you like which was great. We had the most wonderful time and we can't wait to come back again next year thank you again for your hospitality

Cute bungalow close to town

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Suzanne and Len's bungalow. The proximity to downtown Gulfport and all of its restaurants and the marina was great. We especially enjoyed the use of their beach bikes and touring the quaint brick streets and beach areas on wheels! We didn't get to enjoy the "water view" from the front of the property though since it was blocked by dry docked boats during our 2 week stay.

Nice and quaint and located in quiet section of town. Owner very quick to respond to inquiries.

  • 4 of 5

Seascape is a nice and quaint little cottage tucked way just down the block fro Gulfport's small downtown area. O'Maddys is a nice little bar/ restaurant with good food. There are also several other small cafe type places to grab breakfast lunch or dinner and various stores all within walking (or biking) distance from Seascape.

The inside of the cottage is very clean and nicely decorated and served our needs perfectly. Initially my parents, my one brother and his 10yr old son stayed with me and my wife as we all came down from NJ for a family wedding. Wasn't cramped though except for fact there is only one bathroom in the house. There is another bathroom in the laundry room located in the detached garage which did help but needs a little work. Other than this minor issue- all was fine and everyone had a nice stay.

Once everyone else left for NJ, my wife and I had a very nice time by ourselves sitting on the front porch or going for a walks or bike rides to the Gulfport restaurant/ shop areas or biking to Treasure Island beach. We used Uber to go to First Friday in St Petersburg and visited with my brother and my new sister-in-law up in land o lakes. It was a very nice time.

Joanne was quick to respond to any inquiries we had during our stay and a quick shout out to Len who fixed the bikes for us.

Owner's Response: The garage bathroom is for owners, house cleaner,s, landscape workers, Etc. to use. Don't know why it was used as we keep it latched because there is always junk in it. We have 1 bath only.
