St Pete Beach House Rental Photos and Description

Charming cottage with wood floors, lots of windows, private patio with lush landscaping, screened sunporch and lots of charm. Located just one block from the main shopping and entertainment district. All linens provided.

The Sand Dollar will delight you the moment you arrive. Spacious, private second-story apartment with wood floors and 12 windows! 1-bedroom, 1-bath styled in casual island style and in a secluded location in the heart of Gulfport's Beach & Art District.

The Master bedroom has 4 windows, a large walk-in closet, two dressers, two nightstands, double French doors to the living room and television. The gallery-style kitchen has 3 windows and a separate eating area. Glass-door upper cabinets in the antique built-in hutch.

High ceilings and plentiful windows give this generously proportioned second-floor apartment a very spacious feel. The French doors separate the living room and bedroom.

Regardless of the time of year you come to visit, you'll find something exciting and fun to do. Weekly farmer's market. Car recommended.

We vacationed here from Minnesota and truly loved our stay!! The town of Gulfport was beautiful and the Sand Dollar was very nice and felt like home. We will definitely visit again and are sad to be leaving. We look forward to coming back in the near future!!

Sand Dollar a great find!

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed at the Sand Dollar for a month and really enjoyed our stay. The kitchen is very well equipped so that you can take advantage of cooking all the great food you find at the local Tues. market. If cooking in is not your thing, Gulf Port has many great restaurants with-in easy walking distance. Great food and a variety of cuisine. We really enjoyed the lovely patio area, a great Inclosed area especially if you bring along you dog! Gulf Port is very pet friendly and there is a nice dog park very near the Sand Dollar. You do have a flight of steps to get to the apt, but we didn't mind. Everything was clean and comfortable, plenty of storage space and nice size closet.great laundry facilities on the lower level. We would definitely return!

Sand Dollar

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely loved our stay at Sand Dollar. This is the third one of Beth's properties and the fifth time we've rented and they are all great! ALWAYS VERY CLEAN AND WELCOMING!!! Lots of windows gave Sand Dollar a really open feel and gave us a great vantage point to watch the wind in the trees during Tropical Storm Debby! The fenced yard was great for our dogs and there were lots of blooming plants to enjoy when we sat outside on the patio! The house had everything we could possibly need- and as always was very well maintained. Gulfport is a great place to relax- lots of terrific restaurants, fun shops, and friendly people... Can't wait to return again next summer! Fort DeSoto is just a short drive away and has beautiful beaches including our favorite DOG BEACH! Gulfport is a terrific vacation spot and Sand Dollar is a delightful place to stay... Beth and Sally are always available to answer questions and help out and make the whole rental process really easy!

Sand Dollar

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the Sand Dollar 16-20th April 2011. Property was very clean and ready for our stay. There was washing up liquid, toilet paper, hand soap,paper towels, towels, beach towels, coffee machine filters, toster, kettle plus loads more - so really everything you need for few days away. The master bedroom bed was very comfy and our 5 year old daughter slept on the pull out bed in the living room without any complains. Beth was really helpful - during booking, answering our questions or finding sand toys for our daughter - Thank you Beth! Beaches we have visited - Forte de Soto (North-was voted beach of 2005) and also Anna Maria Island - both under 30 minutes away. Also there was a nice "International Mall" about 25 minutes away and nice outlet village "Ellenton Premium Outlets" 35 minutes drive. If you looking for a place with personal touch and easy access to nice places this it the listing - From Mark, Martina and Madi from Germany

Enjoyed our stay.

  • 5 of 5
My wife and 3 of our kids enjoyed a nice, relaxing stay at the Sand Dollar. Location was safe and within driving distance of most of the major area beaches. The place was quaint and nicely kept. We had everything we needed right there. Only a short walk from Gulfport Beach and the restaurants there. A Walmart and grocery store was within a few miles. Beth and her mom were very nice to work with. We enjoyed our stay.

A very cozy vacation apartment

  • 5 of 5
We have just completed our 3rd visit to the Sand Dollar.
It is located in a very quiet area yet only a block or two to several restaurants, the Gulfport waterfront, dog park and city library. The Sand Dollar is very well maintained with a great private patio area. The availability brochures for restaurants, area attractions, and telephone and wi-fi and washer & dryer makes for a very pleasant vacation
