Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Gulfport - Cottage At Wishing Well

1 Bedroom, 1 bath, futon in living room can sleep 4

This beautiful cottage was completely renovated with comfort and relaxation in mind. It is located in the Art District in Gulfport Florida which is within the Waterfront District. This 360 square foot cottage is the second cottage of three located on the Wishing Well property. It has an amazing kitchen with everything you need to cook or entertain friends. There is a large bathroom with a walk-in shower with a rain head! The bedroom has a new queen bed that is very comfortable. The living room has a large futon with an extra thick mattress perfect for guests. There is a large flat screen TV in the living room with a DVD player. There is a smaller flat screen TV in the bedroom.

All of the shops, restaurants and Gulfport's beach are within a short walk of this cottage. This cottage has a lovely front porch for enjoying the Key West style atmosphere. There are a couple of bicycles on the front porch that you can use to ride around town. There is also a large courtyard with a Gazebo and Gas Grille for the enjoyment of guests.

All of Gulfport is within walking or biking distance of the cottage. St. Petersburg with its museums and shopping is just a short 7 minute car ride. Ft. Desoto Park is also a 7 minute car ride.

This is a beautiful place in a great little beach town. Come once you will be back again and again. This is the kind of town you only tell your good friends about, lest it get spoiled. Come visit a real Florida beach town...

About Paula Fenzau

I'm originally from Chicago, been married to a wonderful guy for 20 years. We love to go sailing, restore houses and show people our beautiful quirky beach town. Also have to mention that I am an avid hockey fan!

Paula Fenzau purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Paula Fenzau chose St Petersburg Area

We bought this property in 2004 and have been restoring it with the intention of recreating the beach camp that this property was back in 1939. At some point in its history the property became known as The Wishing Well as it does have a wishing well on the property. The renovation has truly been a labor of love. Each house has been beautifully renovated with its own unique features.

The Wishing Well encompasses half of a city block and is a wonderful place to relax or enjoy all the fun and quirkiness of Gulfport! Located in the Art District in Gulfport it is steps to the coffee shops, art shops, restaurants, beach bars and beach.

What makes this cottage unique

Gulfport is small city on the west coast of Florida with a wonderful 'Old Florida' feel. Take in a baseball game, deep sea fishing, sailing or or see the many art galleries and shopping in neighboring St Pete. Make sure you visit Ft. Desoto Park. It is a 350 acre park on the beach. It has been voted one of the most beautiful beaches in the U.S. and is truly magical at sunrise and sunset. The park is just a short drive from Gulfport.

Wonderful Vacation Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was a great find in Gulfport. We can't say enough about how wonderful it was. Paula & Alex are wonderful hosts. The cottage has everything you need to stay a week or a month! It was neat, clean, the AC worked great, lots of towels & sheets, nice renovations to the kitchen & bathroom. It was only 3 blocks from the beach in Gulfport, which was nice for walking to dinner and seeing the sunsets from the beach in Gulfport. And it was amazingly quiet for being so close to everything. We will definitely check for availability next time we travel to Gulfport/St. Pete Beach area.

Lovely, peaceful and clean

  • 5 of 5

The Cottage was more than I'd hoped for. It was spotless (my #1 priority), well laid out, close to the arts district and bay beach and just felt like home from the start. Paula and Alex are wonderful people who endeavored to make my stay comfortable and happy. I highly recommend staying here or at any of their properties!
