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. The airy, updated bath has a generous shower. Large, walk-in closet in the bedroom. Movies and books are yours to enjoy during your stay. Microwave, coffee pot, mixer and many, many more kitchen amenities are provided. All kitchen, bath and bed linens are provided as well.

Gulfport's library is but a few blocks away and if you feel like shopping you can take the City bus service to Tyrone Mall. It stops just two blocks from The Sand Dollar. Try your hand (or feet!) at salsa or ballroom dancing at the converted Gulfport Casino. And still another attraction is Hickman's Theatre, with live plays. 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.

Golf, tennis, kayaking, swimming and biking are all easily accessible from The Sand Dollar. A perfect location for

Guestbook comments from the manager

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!!

Reviewer Comments:
We rented the Sand Dollar at the last minute because our previous rental was accidentally overbooked. Beth was great at getting us booked and reserved in a days time. The rental was small but quaint. Nothing fancy, but just enough for a family of 5 (3 kids ages 6,4 & 2 mos). My oldest 2 bunked out on the "springy" pull out sofa (luckily they're not fussy about those things) and my husband and I slept comfortably on the king bed. The laundry facilities were just fine but the stairs were a bit taxing in 92 degree weather. We attempted the beach just a block away on our first day. As native Floridians we were less than impressed with it. Extremely shallow, dirty and HOT. I guess late August is not ideal for Gulfport beach. We opted to drive to Madiera and Treasure Island the rest of the time. Had I known of Gulfports beach condition we would have stayed elsewhere. We enjoyed Johns Pass and ate only once at O'Maddys. The food was good and the staff very pleasant. If I had to do it over I would have stayed in Madiera beach, but that's just a preference and not a reflection on the Sand Dollar. Otherwise, we felt Gulfport was cute, quiet and pleasant. The ability to text any problems and concerns was convenient but it sometimes took an hour or more for a response. It did, however, make check out a breeze. The kitchen was well stocked with pots, dishes, etc. I overlooked the fact that it didn't have a dishwasher, so that was a drag. We did request an air mattress when my nephew came to stay a night but the pump was broken and we had to bunk my middle child with us. We were given a new one the following night. All in all, the Sand dollar was just fine for a family getaway.

Reviewer Comments:
We spent many hours searching for the right property to stay at for our 10 day vacation in Florida. We found the sand dollar and was very impressed with the location and size of the house for our small family of three. It is exactly what is described. A 5 min walk to Gulfport beach which was so quiet almost a private beach which we loved!! We also spent many days on the gorgeous St.Petes beach which is a 10 min drive and from the sand dollar. The house is clean, comfortable, wifi and cable were great! The large king size bed was a dream to sleep on. Everything you need is in the house! We loved that it was quiet and not a party place as we went with our almost 2 year old son. I would recommend the Sand Dollar to anyone looking for a great beach vacation. We also went to Busch Gardens only 30 mom drive, Disney World which is 1.5 hours and a Tampa Rays baseball game, only 10 min from the house! We can't wait to go back to the Sand Dollar!!

Reviewer Comments:
Its smaller than the photos lead on but it was amazing!
Makes sure you read the whole packet of information the renter sends to make sure you park at the right house. Fully functional kitchen (pots, pans, cookware, towels, some seasonings, etc.)
Close to a beach recreational area but we spent most of our days driving to the beach (10 minutes away) I recommend a steak house (1200 chophouse) if you are looking for amazing food, great wine, and great service. Get there early and with an empty stomach (large portions and they WILL have a wait)
Doors have access codes to enter and exit.
Very secure location.
Very comfortable bed
Nice shower
