What makes this bungalow unique

Have we mentioned we are in the Heart of Gulfport's Waterfront District? We are surrounded by wonderful restaurants and shops in an undiscovered jewel of Floridas' Gulf Beach towns. All year, every Tuesday is the Tuesday Fresh Market festival. Every first Friday and third Saturday there is an Artwalk Festival... these events take place right at our front door. We would be happy to accommodate any special requests for your stay as your personal concierge.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Staying in Gulfport is like stumbling on paradise, and staying at this listing is having your very own secret spot! Everything about this listing is clean, comfy and cozy, leaving you feeling quite at home. Communication with the hosts was stellar, as is the location. I had the wonderful experience of waking up with a farmer's market out front on Tuesday. It was great walking past the stalls looking for breakfast foods. Susanne also tells me that twice a month there's also an artist market, so I'm definitely going to book again.

Lovely and relaxing cottage right in heart of old Gulfport

  • 5 of 5

A big thank you to August for making our stay as cozy and laid back as we wished. The décor, comfy bed and very functional kitchen were just what we needed for 3 days. We loved the back deck and enjoyed the peace and quiet. August had lots of tips - including best restaurant in town: Pia's Trattoria. We'd recommend this to our friends any day and hope to come back!

If you like being able to walk to restaurants, stores and the beach then you will like this rental. Gulfport is an old quirky town with lots to see. The only caution is that you must be willing and able to deal with a second floor walk up. Nice unit and concerned owners.

Lovely bungalow in the heart of Gulfport

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Gulfport at the Beach Breeze Bungalow. It is right in town where you can walk easily to many restaurants and shops . Two restaurants are right across the street! There is a lively, fun, vibe in this charming town. It is full of friendly and gracious people who are more than happy to chat with you and make you feel welcome. Nearby beach is lovely and we enjoyed sitting out on our deck in the evening enjoying the cool breezes and listening to the sounds of the birds and others enjoying the town. Be aware that this town is very active with market days, etc. and there are sounds that go along with all that activity. Once we go used to that fact, we enjoyed the happy and joyous sounds of a fun-filled town. Susanne is gracious and helpful and answered many questions we had about the area. We hope to be back soon!

Perfect Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We just wanted a get away - quiet and relaxed. Saying in the Beach Breeze Bungalow was perfect. Susanne and August were perfect host and gave us great tips.

The place was spotless, the area great and the weather perfect. If we went back to this area this is where we would stay.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a weekend. The bungalow was very clean and updated. The owners put extras in the room such as candy on the bedside table and fresh cut flowers. Many great restaurants, shops and bars all within walking distance.

Cool place.

  • 5 of 5

This location was right in the middle of the Gulfport downtown. Plenty of restaurants and bars in walking distance. The bungalow was in the back of the August and Suzanne's art studio You have plenty of privacy and your own private entrance. The bungalow very clean and equipped. August and Suzanne very pleasant and professional. I recommend this for a cool unusual get-a-way. Perfect for a couples trip. Their art studio in the front is really cool also.
