Two Waves Cottage in Gulfport on Florida's Gulf Coast

Lovely confortable space, convenient, nice outdoor space, excellent value!

  • 5 of 5

Sandi and Graham have provided a well-appointed yet traditional Gulfport cottage a short walk or drive from the waterfront and the artist community's downtown main street with its cute shops and restaurants. The cottage is cozy yet provides plenty of space. Nice appliances and places to sit and eat. New modern step-in spa shower with a window on to the private tropical backyard. The shed nearby offers extra storage for luggage, plus two bikes and a grill.

We stayed here for a month while relocating here for work, and were able to "live" and work here while enjoying all Gulfport and the area has to over.

Food recommendations: Backfin Blue cafe or Isabelle's. Beaches: Treasure Island / Sunset. Mostly undiscovered. Park in the public lot next to Caddy's and have the beach to yourself! Check out John's Pass boardwalk and shops - great for families with views of wildlife (porpoises and birds) in the channel. Enjoy!

Cute, cozy, cottage

  • 5 of 5

Two Waves Cottage is just a few blocks from downtown Gulfport. The kitchen is well equipped, wifi works well, washer and dryer are convenient, and there is a wonderful fenced backyard. Most importantly, the cottage feels like Gulfport: eclectic, inviting, cozy. Highly recommended!!!!!

Nice house with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed Two Waves. The house was clean and had everything you could ever need. The location was convenient to the heart of Gulfport. It was a perfect place for three kids and a dog. I hope we will be back.

Adorable cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect and was in walking distance to Gulfport beach and several shops and restaurants. The whole area is lovely and the people are super friendly! The yard was perfect for my two large dogs who kept very busy chasing lizards out back. I was even lucky enough to get to see boat races in the bay during my stay. It was perfect!

I would definitely recommend Two Waves Cottage!

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed here along with my brother in law and sister -- and our dogs. We found the accomodations very comfortable with an up to date kitchen and plentiful kitchenware --also a very nice fenced yard for the pets. The location was central to everything and there was lots to do both locally and in St. Pete's. The owners were very prompt with any concerns we had and very nice to deal with. We would definitely choose this cottage again!

Great little getaway in Gulfport

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at two waves for 3 weeks over Christmas and New Years. Our main reason for selecting this home were a fenced yard and pet friendly for our two dogs, a grill, location and comfortable beds (based on other reviews). The yard was great, and the dogs loved it; the charcoal grill needed a new grate; the location was good although it is on a busy street with a lot of traffic and noisy busses; and the bed was very comfortable! The couches in the living room, however, were not very comfy. Although there was plenty of seating. There is free wifi and a TV with limited channels. This was an issue for my husband as he wanted to watch several football games and had to go down to a local bar to watch!! The kitchen is great - tiny but fully equipped with everything you could possibly need. Plenty of plates, glasses, silverware. There is no garbage disposal which I don't think the listing mentions. There is a washer and dryer too, beach chairs and bicycles. Neighbors are quiet and very nice (we met both sides). And there is a nice park across the street to walk the dogs (Wood Ibis Park). The house was clean and there were plenty of towels available. Great shower! There are some really nice restaurants within walking distance, and most are pet friendly with outside seating. We especially enjoyed Stella's and Tangelos. O'Maddy's had good food, a nice beer selection and tv's for football! We never did meet the person who was to check us in and out, but we texted and talked on the phone. The communication with the owner could have been better - not a standard VRBO way to pay. I wasn't sure my payments had gone through correctly! We did not hear from the owners at all during our stay. We would certainly consider staying at two waves again in the future.

Gulfport is an artsy seaside town with plenty of old Florida charm. It has a small town feel with shops, restaurants, and amenities all within easy walking distance, yet it's right next door to many Florida attractions like Busch Gardens, Fort De Soto (voted America's #1 beach), the Dali Museum, outlet malls, and the spectacular Gulf Coast beaches. You can walk a few blocks to the local Gulfport beach on beautiful Boca Ciega Bay, wander over to Clam Bayou nature reserve and kayak through the mangroves, or join in on one of the many dance events that take place at the Gulfport Casino dance hall with its beautiful location facing onto the bay. Gulfport is known for its colorful old Florida houses and artsy atmosphere, as well as its numerous festivals and events like Art Walk, GeckoFest, Tuesday Fresh Market, Antiques in the Park, and many others throughout the year.

Other Activities: dolphin watching, local beach, bird watching
