A very fun and funky place!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our two dogs enjoyed three nights at this fabulous location. Wonderful restaurants nearby, many accepting pets. We took the dogs to the Fort Desoto dog beach and they had a blast.!

The home is more than comfortable and has every accoutrement you can imagine. We are going to come back again I know.

Super Cute House Close to the Beach and Shops

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the house, it was super cute and well furnished. The beach, shops and Restaurant/Bars were in walking distance, just blocks away. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks! :)

Awesome, cozy little house in a charming little town

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the best time with our 3 kids and pup during our stay. The house has everything you need to be comfortable and more! The decor is fun, the beds are cozy, and there was plenty of space to enjoy our week there. Everything was clean and nicely maintained. A brand new kuerig was perfect for coffee lovers like myself. We loved having a quiet, private place to retire to after a day at the beach, and the washer and dryer and full kitchen and grill were so nice to have! We fell in love with Gulfport as well, and loved the short distance to quirky little shops, good food, a cute little pier and playground. We ate at O'Maddys one evening, and cannot recommend it enough! It was a short little 10 min drive to enjoy the swim beaches at St.Pete's as well. We will definitely return to this little gem! Great find!

Cute Kitchie Cottage in a Small Town With Access to Everything

  • 4 of 5

As previous reviews have stated, the decor was quite entertaining. There was plenty of room for my husband and I with 2 small dogs. We also had guests that slept in the other bedroom and on the murphy bed and everything was fine. The walk to Beach Blvd was easy (except for the heat) where there are shops and restaurants. We also went to Fort DeSoto Park in Tierra Verde, as well as St Pete and Clearwater for lunch. My only request would be to not use black duct tape instead of repairs and the backyard needs river rock or something other than dead foilage. Also, the palm tree needs to be kept trim so that the frons don't fall on someone's head.

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.
