Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Gulfport - Two Waves Cottage

Charming two bedroom bungalow just a few blocks from the beach.

Two Waves Cottage is a comfortable bungalow ideally located in Gulfport's waterfront district. This colorful Key West style cottage has a spacious back patio & a large fully fenced pet friendly backyard. Inside you'll find all the comforts of home with an ample living room & a bright fully equipped kitchen. The spacious sun-filled dining/great room faces out onto the garden & has a chaise longue for relaxing that converts to a single bed. The two bedrooms, decorated in sea hues, have extra comfy queen and double memory foam mattresses. There's plenty of parking and the cottage comes with two bicycles.

You'll find everything within walking distance including a variety of excellent shops & restaurants, a beautiful beach, & a nature reserve. Choose to just relax at the cottage, or use it as a base for your Florida adventures. The spectacular Gulf Coast beaches are a 5-minute drive away, downtown St. Petersburg is about 15 minutes, and Orlando with all its attractions is an easy 90-minute drive.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

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.

Perfect weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Two Waves Cottage! Four adults, travelling with a two-months infant, we were glad to see that everything in and out of the house was exactly as we were told.

House was very comfortable, clean and nicely kept. With a beachy and cozy decor, we felt at home right away.

Arrangements for arrival and departure were easily made and we were provided with thoughtful details, instructions and recommendations to go around the house and Gulfport.

Though we didn't need any special assistance, Jannesse was helpful and we knew we could reach her if that was required.

We found the little beachfront city to be as charming and slow paced as we were hoping for.It was a short vacation, but we surely enjoyed the time spent over there!

Thanks Sandy & Graham and for you hospitality.

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
