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.

Great place to stay

Thoroughly enjoyed our week in Gulfport. Minutes away from just about everything Florida has to offer. Very nice, clean and quiet house! You won't regret it.

felt like a beach cottage should - easy and fun

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was clean, and laid out nicely. The kitchen well stocked with the necessities. While the cottage is on 58th Street, a main thoroughfare, there was very little traffic noise--indeed it was surprisingly quite. It was an easy walk to downtown...the beach and restaurants.

The owner was easy to deal with, even when I needed an extra day on short notice.

Loved our visit!

  • 5 of 5

There was so much great about this property. Plenty of space and storage, comfortable furniture and beds, great bathroom with taller toilet and a large shower with a great teak stool. Washer and dryer was an added plus. Great use of all the storage cabinets and drawers including under the oven. Just look and you will find. Wonderful fenced in yard and great outdoor furniture. Very safe area that we were able to go on our bicycles, that we brought, everyday. We stored the bikes in the shed. The manager of the property was very prompt in helping our needs. I would highly recommend this property. LWS

Great little place!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for two weeks with two young children (4yr and 2yr). Fully enclosed garden was great for the kids to run around. Accomodation was good size, and the kitchen had everything we needed. Location was good, being a short walk to the main street/beach etc. St Pete Beach is also close, approx 5-10min drive. Overall a greta little place, in a nice neighbourhood. Would stay again, and recommend to anyone.

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.
