Why Richard Ham chose St Petersburg Area

The cottage was nice and clean and comfy, as before. And as the listing says, it really is in a perfect location.

Great house, great location

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is truly perfect! We were very comfortable here, clean and well equipped . The backyard was fabulous, daytime and nighttime. We loved that we could walk to shops and restaurants. We would definitely make a return visit!

Very nice, with reservations

  • 3 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this cottage. It’s a great location - barely 2 blocks from Gulfport’s main street and waterfront - has a lovely back yard and an easygoing host who’s very easy to deal with. There are some things that could make it a much more enjoyable experience, however. Most of the amenities could use an upgrade: the towels are threadbare, all the cushions on the porch furniture should be replaced, the sofa has begun to sag - and my husband and guest would add that the couch and lounge chair both smelled of dog hair. These things mar an otherwise excellent experience - and without these changes I’m not sure I’d think about renting here again.

What a sweet little slice of paradise! So peaceful and pretty! The backyard is gorgeous! Quiet neighborhood, walking distance to the beach, quaint little shops with lots of great food in the neatest little town! Just can't describe how much we loved this place! Richard was very accommodating. Very simple bungalow but it has all the necessities. A great vacation place! We will definitely be going back and stay longer!

Some of the best seafood I've ever eaten just down the street but the kitchen had everything we needed for anything you may want to cook. There's also a grill. Most peaceful vacation I've ever had! We only had a few days there and it just wasn't enough! We can't wait to visit again!

Peferct Place Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great place! Off street parking, privacy, pet friendly. The house is very clean and has all the extras you would want and then some! Within walking distance to the beach, a pier, and lots of local shops and restaurants! We had a blast and so did our pups!! It was the perfect location and I would highly recommend this place to anyone especially if you have dogs! We will definitely be staying here again in the future! Thanks Richard for everything!
