Why Paula and Martha Castro-Chapman chose St Petersburg Area

This property was originally a carriage house for the main house, which was built in 1926. The property is newly renovated, with two enclosed paver patios for privacy. Plenty of parking and a short walk to downtown Gulfport.

The house is located in Gulfport. Gulfport is a very quaint, small, friendly beach community very close to downtown St Petersburg and St Pete beach. Itis full of parks, piers, culture, and delicious dining. The colorful town is buzzing with activity from Fresh Markets every Tuesday showcasing fresh produce, breads, seafood, and condiments to Art Walks the first Friday and third Saturday of every month featuring musicians, artists, and food vendors.

Gulfport celebrates several annual festivals including Get Rescued supporting pet rescues in February, SpringFest highlighting local artists in March, a 4th of July parade, and a Labor Day street fair called Gecko Fest.

Visitors can mosey through the Clam Bayou Nature Preserve, take in the view from Williams Pier, or explore the historic Waterfront District’s varied shops and restaurants. Reviewers rave about Isabelle’s, O’Maddy’s, Tangelo’s and Neptune Grill to name a few.

Locals enjoy recreation at Skyway Fishing Pier and Egmont Key State Parks, let loose at the local Casino, and celebrate the arts in galleries along Beach Blvd. Be sure to visit the All Veterans Memorial Park, which pays tribute to veterans from each branch of the military.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Val and Guy really loved the place, but they wished that the bathroom were a bit bigger. We do too. We are expecting them back next year.

Cute cottage/great location

  • 5 of 5

Great communication with the owner. Adorable cottage walking distance of bars, restaurants and shopping in Gulfport. The fully fenced yard gives the privacy everyone wants but very seldom gets. Across the street from the public library where I could print my boarding pass. Wifi and cable TV are a nice plus. I will definitely rent again. Thanks for everything Paula. I loved my stay.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Gulfport. Our apartment was very clean and well stocked for anything you might need,and if you did need anything the owners always accommodated, with friendly smiles. They kept in touch and asking if we were in need of anything and were comfortable,which is a plus in my book.Even my little dog liked the owner. We liked being there so much that we have already booked for next year. Thank you Paula,for all your hard work.
