Overview

About the property

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.

**Please note that the cottage is perfect for a couple or a family with one or two younger children. It would be tight for four adults.

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. We have a couple of bicycles at the property for guests to use to ride around town and a couple of kayaks as well. 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.

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled at the quaintness of Paula's Gulfport Cottage. It looked great online which is why we booked initially and were so thrilled when we arrived as it was even better than expected.

Fabulous hosts who have thought of everything we could have possibly needed for our 7-night stay in their charming property!

A Wonderful Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 4yo son and I really enjoyed our stay at the Wishing Well Cottage in Gulfport. What a unique and eclectic town Gulfport is! This cottage is only a block from the main strip, which is full of interesting shops and fun restaurants; about three blocks to the pier and Gulfport's beach. Also, Gulfport is a perfect location for exploring the entire TPA/St Pete area - equidistant to everything! Upon arrival, our hostess Paula could not have been more friendly, informative, and helpful. The cottage is so very clean! It is nicely updated and the tile work is beautiful throughout! We'll recommend this property to all our friends!
