A GREAT LOCATION ~ GULFPORT BEACH/EVERYTHING WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE

Gulfport House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This charming home is located on a large corner lot with citrus fruit trees, a fenced-in back yard off the screened lanai and a new 26' screened-in, front porch. Newly renovated and furnished, there are cool tile floors throughout and ceiling fans in every room. The Master Suite is separated from the other bedrooms for privacy. Renovated in August 2009, the master bedroom was turned into a suite by adding 60 square feet, a huge walk-in closet and a beautiful master bathroom with a convenient laundry closet.

The sandy beach on quiet Boca Ciega Bay is a five block walk through the historic part of Gulfport. Restaurants and small shops create a friendly, small town atmosphere. The small Gulfport Museum, located in an older home, and a park with tennis courts are across the street. The library and community art theater are three blocks away. Gulfport is the ideal place to enjoy peace and quiet just minutes from downtown St. Petersburg with all its museums, nightlife, restaurants and shopping. The Tampa airport is a 25 minute drive. The Gulf beaches, like St. Pete Beach, are only a short 15 minute drive.

Gulfport, originally a small fishing community, has become an integral part of St. Petersburg's art scene. A number of artists and musicians from around the country have created neighborhoods with colorfully painted homes and interesting yard art. An artwalk is held twice a month.

One of old Gulfport's most charming features is the Casino. It is located on the beach and is a venue for nightly dancing and weekly dance lessons. People of all ages gather for the lessons in Latin or ballroom dancing or just to watch others on the dance floor. On Sunday afternoons a group of Italians play bocci and dance in the Pavilion on the waterfront.

Keywords: Single home.

Christmas Vacation

  • 4 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 6, 2014
  • Stayed: Dec 2013
We enjoyed our stay in this comfortable home within walking distance of the quaint downtown area of Gulfport. This is a very dog friendly city and our pet enjoyed eating out at one of the restaurants and playing in the dog park almost across the street from this home. The little church across the street was a pleasant bonus on Sunday morning - dress is casual and the congregation friendly. We did encounter one problem at the home but contacted the property manager who responded immediately. We would recommend this home to others and hope to return in the future.

thanksgiving trip

I arrived late on a Friday night and Lana was willing to come out to meet me and show me around the house - which was a great little place. There were a few bulbs out etc, which were repaired the next day. Gulfport is a quaint little town with a great main street to wander up and down. My only real comments are that the internet did not work and the grill was out of gas which was part of the reason I wanted this particular house. Regardless it was a decent property in a good location and we a lot of fun down there.

Owner's Response: Dear Andrew,
I'm glad you enjoyed Gulfport and your stay in our house. I'm very sorry to hear that some of your expectations were not met. We strive very hard to meet our tenants needs and make good on anything promised or expected. (As was witnessed and mentioned in your review, when our property manager noticed a lighting fixture needed repair, it was fixed the next day.) I only wish you had contacted me or Lana about the Internet and gas grill. We don't know there's a problem if no one tells us. :( I apologize that a previous tenant didn't replace the propane tank when they used it up. :( That is just a common courtesy we expect and ask of our tenants. I hope you had a great Thanksgiving week, in spite of the two disappointments you encountered.

Great experience

This place was the best house we went to in the US. It is nice, quiet and clean. For tourists without cars, it is the dream as everything is within walking distance (you will find 4 excellent restaurants down the street, a grocery store, bars and the beach) and the bus to St Petersburg stops just across the street. The owner has been very helpful from the beginning till the end of our trip which is highly appreciated when you come from another country. We had such a good time there that we are thinking about going back soon.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you found our house and little town so accommodating!
We are totally in love with Gulfport for all the reasons you mentioned and more. We have renovated and decorated it to make it feel "like home," since it is to us. We stay in VRBO houses when we travel. It is always our goal to have our guests feel the way we want to feel when we rent.

A charming vacation home in a charming town

Gulfport has a real small town feel. Walk down the main street (which is only a block from the house) and you'll find some awesome restaurants, cute shops and a wonderful tea/coffee shop called T and Me (go in there daily for whatever suits your fancy and you'll be treated like a regular). Within a 15-minute drive are the beautiful beaches of St. Pete, and Tampa is nearby for your enjoyment as well.

The house has everything you need including a wonderful master bedroom and super comfy bed. The air conditioning keeps the house cool and refreshing after a day at the beach or if you're just looking to relax. Or sit out on the front porch and enjoy the view.

Honestly, you can't go wrong.

My husband & I stayed in this Gulfport vacation rental with our 5 children, and I would defiantly recommend this rental. The home was beautiful, spacious, & Nicely updated.. And the location was perfect 10 minutes from St.Petersburg where we enjoyed museums & resteraunts.. But so much w/I walking distance- Across the street was a playground & tennis courts. Short walk away the library and the perfectly quant town with ice cream & coffee shops & home style resteraunts. We also enjoyed the fresh market once a week- Not to mention the beach, volleyball, & large playground is also w/I walking distance.. We had a great stay!!
