Cute, funky cottage, has all you need

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed the spacious house with well equipped kitchen and large rooms. Very clean and neat through out. Gulfport is residential with easy walk to waterfront, restaurants and cafes. Check out the senior center and library. Nancy's decorating style will keep you smiling. Screened outdoor sitting is a plus. Bikes provided along with soap, shampoo, tissues. Nancy was available to respond quickly to our question. Visit the Dali Museum and the glass exhibits in St. Pete's.

Great, comfortable beach house

  • 5 of 5

I, my husband and our dog - as well as our several visitors over the Thanksgiving holiday - loved this house. It was comfortable, well located and the kitchen contained everything I needed to prepare a holiday dinner for 10! We always go down to FL and rent various homes and this is the first one where I can honestly say the kitchen was as well stocked as my own. The location of the house is also perfect - it is within 2 blocks of the beach, kids playground and 4 blocks to the center of town activities. Others may feel that the Gulfport beach is not as swimable as SPB but I like it as it has very few visitors, the sand is white and clean - since I'm not a swimmer the nice beach is a top priority for me. We also enjoy the many local activities - from the farmers markets to the crafts fairs - they provide local activities without the fuss of traveling. Our dog also enjoys the dog park and the dog friendly businesses in town. One of the best restaurants is PIA'S TRATTATORIA - really great atmosphere and food. I would also recommend SAVE ON SEAFOOD, a 1.5 mi. drive, which has the freshest seafood around at very reasonable prices if you are cooking in. We plan on returning next year and as mnay times after that as we can. Thank you for opening up your home to us.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

The write-up and pictures on this property are absolutely accurate and true. The home was clean and spacious with plenty of room for 5 or 6 people. The artwork and decorating made our stay interesting and fun. We walked to the beach, did the art walk and had some great meals (and margaritas) at nearby restaurants. We were only a short 15 minute drive to Madiera Beach and spent two full days just enjoying the beach and sun at a place called Caddy's. The house has CDs, books, games and has a all the pots/pans, towels, dishes and utensils you'll need. We ate breakfasts in and there's a Walmart grocery and a Winn Dixie within a 5 minute drive. You won't go wrong renting this property. Nancy was a great hostess and responded quickly to any inquiries. Wished we booked for a longer stay!!

Numerous courses to choose from.

Friendly beachside community. Numerous local activities, A 'main street' downtown area with restaurants,

coffee shop, outdoor gathering spot with local music talent, shops etc. Bi-monthly Art Walks, many festivals, 4th of July old time parade with fireworks over the bay. Active, active community, everchanging but always people, community oriented. If your looking for laid back, old time Florida fun time Gulfport is for you. Surrounding communities are the typical professional resorts styled places, Gulfport is a gem for old style fun. Step out of Gulfport at your own risk, returning to cilvilization is not recommended.
