Never Ending Summer on the Florida Gulf Coast!

Bedrooms 2
Space 700 sq ft
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

Join us for never ending summer at the beach in this fun and funky little corner of Old Florida. Relax on white sand beaches or by the pool with a Margarita .

Don't miss the chance to get away to this intimate and charming retreat and enjoy a little bit of the quirky that is Gulfport. Escape to the funky side in this artist community with its quaint shops and outstanding restaurants.

Two bedrooms, one bath, full kitchen, dining room and living room, which overlooks Boca Ciega Bay. Sometimes called "the pink house," the Gulfport Beach Cottage is on a brick-paved street across from Gulfport Municipal Beach in the historic Art District.

Not some boring hotel room or cookie cutter condo, the Gulfport Beach Cottage gives you all the comforts of home—but at the beach! Warm, intimate and inviting the minute you walk in the door. Once you arrive, unpack and unwind. Kick back and relax in the living room with views of the bay. Read while you watch the sailboats on the water. Select a book from our little library of good reads. Or enjoy satellite HDTV with Dishnetwork and Netfilx service. WiFi is also provided.

Hungry? Gulfport offers truly great restaurants (more on that later). But you don't have to eat out for every meal. Cook in the full kitchen. It's completely stocked with cookware, plates, glasses and utensils. Eat in the dining room with a view out toward the beach.

Both master and guest bedrooms have queen beds. All bed linen and covers are provided. Bath and beach towels are in the space. The laundry room is on the ground floor with washer and dryer available for your use.

Enjoy the pool. Stretch out on a chaise lounge and sit poolside with a refreshing drink.

About Chuck & Karen Colley

We love Gufport! We purchased and moved into this 2-family flat (duplex) in 2010. We originally lived upstairs while we completed a renovation. Now we live downstairs and welcome our guests staying upstairs.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We were delighted to find a town that didn't look like any other -- no fast food or franchise shops in a tourist friendly environment. Nearby restaurants sometimes feature bands. We joked that the restaurant directly across the street was our kitchen we ate there so often. On the beach our ticket to peace and relaxation was rocking in a porch swing. We want to go back.

Great location...but poorly maintained

  • 1 of 5

Old cottage, overpriced for what it has to offer. No heating...not recommended for winter vacations.

Owner's Response: Thank you to our recent guests for staying with us and providing feedback. We are concerned that they did not find their stay satisfactory, and we would have made every effort to remedy any problem were we made aware of it. The property was built in 1925 and does not have central heat. We do provide space heaters, which in the past have stood up to the occasional cold snap we have in this part of Florida. Nevertheless, we will evaluate whether this option is adequate to the comfort of our guests. Regarding pricing, the rates are in keeping with the marketplace. We conduct an annual audit of the vacation rental market in the Gulfport area generally and the art/beach district specifically to ensure our rates are accurate, competitive and in keeping with available amenities. Finally, the maintenance of the property is ongoing and in the past year that maintenance included painting, new linens, new appliances and new television. We want our guests to enjoy their stays with us, to have a good time while here and to enjoy their time in our little corner of paradise as much as we enjoy it. Our commitment is to take every step possible to ensure our guests leave with fond memories their time at the Gulfport Beach Cottage.

Wonderful Place To Stay In Gulfport

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 10 fabulous days at this charming Gulfport Cottage!! The location couldn't be any better! Right on the water and across the street from the start of all of the restaurants and shops! The cottage is on the 2nd floor overlooking the bay. Karen & Chuck have decorated in a manner that reminds me of Key West! In fact, the city of Gulfport is like a mini Key West! The 2 bedrooms were perfect for the 4 of us. The kitchen is stocked with everything you would need if you choose to cook. The living room has windows all across which makes it open & gives you a fantastic water view. It was nice touch having cable tv, books, games, movies, etc available for our use. Having the swimming pool was also great as we love to lay out in the warm Florida sunshine! Was also nice having that water view while doing that as well!! Right across the street is a small beach which we went to a few of the days. Karen & Chuck have beach chairs & an umbrella available to use for that also! Thanks again to Chuck for his hospitality & making us feel at home. We will definitely stay here again the next time we visit!

A great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week at this cottage in Gulfport. What a fun community. The best kept secret in Florida, in my opinion. This cottage is adorable and adequately stocked. Washer and dryer on site a plus. The pool was an added bonus and we normally had it to ourselves. The owners are a delight and I felt like we were friends by the time we left. We highly recommend!!

Delightful change of pace in Gulfport

  • 4 of 5

My family ang I enjoyed a one week stay at Chuck and Karen Colley's cottage. Our accommodations were exactly as shown on the pictures. We were surrounded by bright tropical colours and Karen's decorating touches were evident and appreciated all through the cottage. Gulfport is a gem, a throw back to a time when the cottages looked like those of our childhood.
