About Randy and Alison Tietz

I was born in the Tampa Bay area and love showing off my home town to guests. My husband is from Minnesota and really appreciates the warm winters Florida has to offer. We've been married over 30 years with 2 grown children and our greatest passion is traveling. As such, we've learned to appreciate a great vacation and place to rest your head versus just a good one.

Why Randy and Alison Tietz chose Gulfport

We LOVE the Gulfport area and before buying in this location we frequently came just to enjoy the atmosphere and chill out on the beach. Just Yelp this area for restaurants and any number of top notch places are within walking distance of where you will be staying. Every first Friday and third Saturday Gulfport's Beach Blvd is home to an Art Walk featuring many local artists.

What makes this condo unique

We love this condo not just for the close proximity to the beach, restaurants and shops but also for the private courtyard and pool. Imagine spending your evenings by the pool sipping margaritas and listening to Jimmy Buffet on the radio...a little slice of heaven.

8 beautiful days!

  • 5 of 5

Not only was the weather beautiful, the condo was delightful. Only disappointment was finding out there was no outdoor seating in front, but there was a sweet little table for two in the little shady courtyard. The pool, through unheated, was very refreshing! The price was perfect for our needs and Allison was always quick with a courteous reply to every question we had.

Darling studio

  • 4 of 5

This little studio was really cute and the area was unique and fun and safe with so many good, unusual restaurants within walking distance. It's right on a beach and near a pier. As many bicycles and dogs as cars on the road I think. The price was right and the rental had everything we needed. Our only complaint was the topper on the bed was terribly soft and we were used to a very firm bed at home. But we thoroughly enjoyed our stay nonetheless. It was close to everything we wanted to do -- Johns Pass, Fort Desoto Park, downtown St Petersburg, St Petes Beach and not far from Anna Maria Island.

Perfect location and size

  • 5 of 5

Lovely apartment across from the Boca Ciega Bay with private shaded patio. We had coffee there in the morning and drinks before dinner. The apartment has everything you need and was very cute and clean in red, white, and blue. We loved it!!! The pool was nice and had comfortable lounge chairs and a table with chairs where we often sat after dinner. It was the perfect vacation spot with great restaurants, cute shops, and live music the next block over. The owners let us know they were available if we needed anything (we didn't) - Highly recommend!!!

A fantastic little home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of staying here in the beginning of October for 9 days, and I have to admit this is a hidden gem in the St. Pete area. This place had everything I needed for my time there. The only thing I had to worry about was the simple thought of, "What should I eat tonight?" It's amazingly close to various little restaurants and right across from a little beach park area. The room itself is very well kept and I didn't have a hard time keeping it clean. The owners are very accommodating, even when I lost my phone and house key-code, they happily replaced it with a brand new code. An excellent place to stay for anyone visiting the Tampa/St. Petersburg area.
