About Susan Strickland
We discovered Gulfport, Florida by chance on a visit to the Gulf Beaches and decided to purchase one of the charming, old historical properties directly across from the peacefully quiet Veteran's Park. Only a block from Beach Drive and its many restaurants, bars & pubs and quaint shops, our beach cottage is the perfect spot to enjoy a warm & sunny Florida escape. The refurbishment of the home was a labor of love, which we tried to decorate in the spirit of this delightfully whimsical and unique beach side town. We hope you enjoy your stay as much as we do when we visit Gulfport. Jim and Sue Strickland
Susan Strickland purchased this House in 2017

Absolutely beautiful home! We had a wonderful time. Great location, walking distance to dining and beach areas. Pet friendly was a bonus!! We will for sure be booking again. Thank you for sharing your home.
Great house in a great location. Clean, quiet and well appointed. Nice yard and walking distance to everything.
Beautiful house in great location
This house was expertly renovated and is in the great little neighborhood of Gulfport. The house was perfectly equipped and comfortable for our family of four. We enjoyed walking the brick-lined side streets each day to the coffee shop and to the Tuesday outdoor market. We made the two-minute walk through the park and to the pier to watch the sunrise each morning. The local beach is just a 5 minute walk and the popular beaches just a 20 minute drive. Steinbrenner Field (Yankee spring training), Tampa shopping and the airport are each just a 30 minute drive away. We'll definitely make a return visit to this Gulfport home.
Thank you James. We look forward to hosting you again very soon!
Charming cottage close to town
We had a wonderful time in this beautiful cottage. The beds and all furniture were comfortable and the ambiance was relaxing and enchanting. The outdoor patio on the side of the house was inviting and private and the exterior yard was as pristine as the interior. The fully stocked kitchen made meal prep easy. Located just a block from downtown the cottage was very quiet. We will be back,
Kim, thank you for your kind words and for taking such good care of our Calypso Beach House during your visit. We would welcome your family for a return stay anytime.
Beautiful and clean!
Thank you! We will look forward to hosting you again in our Calypso Beach House in Gulfport, Florida!
This Gulfport cottage is perfection! We can’t wait to stay here again!
We love Gulfport and we couldn’t have found a better place to enjoy all it has to offer. We walked everywhere as the cottage is located in the best possible area. Two great, extremely comfortable bedrooms and full baths were perfect for my partner and I, and my Mother and her adorbsable Maltipoo Zoey. Plenty of room and obviously, very recently fully renovated. Groovy BBQ area off the kitchen and a perfect fenced in front yard where we spent many afternoons hangin’ out and playin’ with Zoey. She’s quite the draw and everyone passing by was so nice. We met so many locals and visitors that stopped for a moment or a a while and visited with us. Even a carport to shelter the car. Very reasonably priced and the owners supplied us with all we needed for a wonderful getaway. If you plan on staying in Gulfport, this IS the place! Look no further. We’ll be planning another getaway soon, only if we can stay here!

Visitors may enjoy a delicious breakfast after a nice walk along Shore Blvd to take in the scenic view of Tierra Verde across the bay. Then they might spend a few hours shopping for original paintings, unique gifts, Florida souvenirs, or rare antiques. Maybe they will just take in the scenery or photograph the colorful buildings and homes that sit on tree covered streets in Gulfport. Lunch or Dinner would be enjoyed in any of the several popular restaurants on Gulfport, Beach and Shore Blvds.
Gulfport Florida has beautiful parks and a relaxing walk in the Clam Bayou Nature Preserve is always a visual and auditory treat with the sights and sounds of wild birds, the breeze in the trees, and the water of the bayou. One of my favorite things to do in Gulfport is walk out onto Williams' Pier at sunset to take pictures or just follow the sun as it goes down while watching the clouds put on a colorful show. After it gets dark, I let my eyes dance with the reflecting lights from Salty's Gulfport and O' Maddy's Bar and Grill on the gentle evening waves for a calming experience.
On the first Friday and third Saturday of every month at 6:00 pm, Beach Blvd comes alive with artists, vendors, musicians, and great food during our famous Gulfport Art Walks.
Every Tuesday is Gulfport's Tuesday Fresh Market where fresh produce is sold and vendors set up offering fresh baked breads, fresh seafood, cheeses, nuts, spices and sauces, along with hand crafted art and clothing and more!
