We love The Florida Funk!

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved this property! The owner, Nancy, was easy to communicate with and returned emails quickly and offered suggestions for local attractions. We arrived at the house and found it in exactly the condition depicted in the photos. It is much larger than we expected and had a fully furnished kitchen, we cooked breakfast and dinner every day of our trip and never came across anything we didn't have. We enjoyed the screened in patio every morning and evening! The house is very comfortable and decorated in an eclectic manner that we loved!! The house is located just a couple blocks from the beach, a park, a dog park, the community library, and local restaurants and shops. There is also a grocery store within a few minutes drive from the property. It was a quite area and still plenty close enough to downtown St. Pete. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect experience!

Perfect location; Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5
The owner Nancy was pleasant to speak with and explained everthing prior to our arrival. We arrived on July 4th 2013 and found the house in prestine condition. Just a few blocks away from the beach area, this house sits in the perfect spot close to the beach, a little drive to Tampa or Clearwater. Nice resturants on Beach BLVD; the area had more of a local crowd then tourist crowd, and that was a nice :) Gulfport puts on a nice 4th of July celebration, and my family enjoyed that. We stayed at this beautiful house for 4 days prior to a cruise; and it was well worth the stay! We traveled with my wife, myself my 11 year old daughter and 17 year old son. The property was spotless and I would recommend to anyone! Nancy's description of the house and area in description is spot on. And, for those who are a bit leary of the dates on the photos, there is no need to worry. The pictures show the house as it is. We used the bikes in the shed for a early morning or early evening ride. The screened in porch was a nice relaxing place to have a beer and a glass of wine in the evening! Thank you Nancy for allowing us to stay in your perefect vacation home!

Excellent experience

  • 5 of 5
We rented this house for our daughters ice skating competition in Ellenton (about 25 minute ride) and it worked out perfectly. Worth mentioning that the Ellenton Prime Outlet Mall is located near the rink so we had a chance to do some shopping as well.

This house is loaded with charm. The location is perfect for relaxing.
It is within walking distance to the bay, quaint shops and restaurants.
The back yard is completely fenced in which was perfect for my dog, since we travel with him. This is a very pet friendly town.

While there, we took a trip to St pete Beach, a 15 minute ride and well worth it.

Nancy was very easy to deal with and we all loved her many interesting decorations.

Cannot wait for another competition so I can rent this house again.

Thank you Nancy

Old time Florida funk, Gulfport beach house, in

  • 5 of 5
Great home!!! we loved everything about the house and especially the location. wish we could have stayed longer than one week. It was just a short drive to our favorite beaches. The house was much bigger than we thought and the most comfortable house we have ever rented. Can't wait to go back!

Stormy but FUN!!!

  • 5 of 5
This wonderful house is full of vivid colors and amazing memorabilia. It is truly comfortable and very spacious. It offers fun for every ages and moods. As soon as we arrived, we had the pleasure of welcoming our new friend "Debby", the tropical storm that liked the area so much that decided to stay for a couple of days! During the storm, this beautiful house offered us with the opportunity of a memorable family time; cooking, playing games, listening to music and watching videos. All these with the comfort and security this house provides. Nancy was always very attentive and helpful before, during, and after our stay!
