Why Beth Sexworth chose St Pete Beach

It was literally love at first site. Flamingo Cottage and Palm Cottage are located on the same lot and I found them both while driving around the neighborhood on a business trip.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for letting us use the cottage. We really enjoyed it. Plus the area was amazing. I had penty of quiet to recover from surgery and plenty of places to walk to. The beaches are beautiful here. We will be back in February 2013 for my three month check up. I will look you up to see if it is available.

Flamingo Cottage

  • 4 of 5
We stayed at the charming Flamingo Cottage. It was just right for our girl's getaway. The cottage is located in an old traditional Florida neighborhood. It was quaint and comfortable. Best thing about the cottage was it was a short walk to the beach and downtown. Lots of little shops and great restuarants located on the main street of Gulfport and on the water. Mostly locals walking their dogs. Very close driving to St. Pete Beach and Passagrille area. Enjoyed our long weekend.

Loved Gulfport and the Flamingo Cottage

  • 5 of 5
Pleasantly surprised with Gulfport!! We usually stay in Madiera, but I now think Gulfport is our new favorite. The beach was never crowded and the area is very pet friendly. The cottage very functional and nicely decorated. Good food at the local restaurants. We love the Habana Cafe.

Flamingo Cottage

  • 4 of 5
I was pleasantly surprised with the decor and design of the Flamingo Cottage. Was within a few blocks of downtown historic Gulfport with its live oak trees and brick streets which gave me a glimpse of old-time Florida which is quickly being lost to strip malls and parking lots.
One caveat -- would really only consider this unit appropriate for two people. The bedroom is separated from the living room by a flimsy bi-fold door (which was off its tracks during our visit) which affords no privacy. Also, the ceiling in the bedroom is probably 6.5 feet or less -- tall people may feel claustrophobic. I am 5'4" and was easily able to place my hand flat against the ceiling without standing on tip toes.

Owner's Response: These guests stayed 3 nights and did notify us via email about the bedroom door a little more than half-way through their stay. Although they said it would be great if it could be repaired the next day, they said they realized at that point they'd only have one night left anyway. The door was repaired the day they departed. The door is a regular, solid-panel bi-fold door and as such does not offer complete privacy as there is a small gap where the door attaches to the doorway. The ceiling in the bedroom is lower than standard and lower than the rest of the rooms. It measures just under 7 feet at six feet, nine inches. The bedroom is a comfortable size with a large picture window, which helps give it a roomier feel despite the lower ceiling. We are always happy to answer any questions about any of our properties!

Great place to stay in Gulfport!

  • 5 of 5
We spent three days here when we drove down to attend our nephew’s wedding on St. Pete Beach. The cottage is very comfortable and well appointed, had excellent internet, and it’s a perfect location for enjoying the shops and restaurants on Beach Blvd and Shore Blvd. We had our dog with us, and he loved being on the front patio on the lookout for little geckos! We liked The Village Pub and O’Maddy’s and had a good dinner at Pia’s, but our favorite spot was Peg’s Cantina and Brewpub. If your travels take you to this charming little town, look no further than Flamingo Cottage for your place to stay!

Quaint and comfortable

  • 4 of 5
We stayed in the Flamingo Cottage at the beginning of July and loved Gulfport! The cottage was very comfortable for the 2 of us. The kitchen was beautiful and we loved sitting out front on the small patio. Even though the cottage is close to the downtown area and in the middle of a residential area, it was very quiet there. Our only complaint was that the bed was extremely squeaky!
Gulfport itself was very charming. We loved the quick walk to the beach area and to the shops and restaurants. We took the trolley to St Pete Beach one day and also then drove ourselves another day. The drive was very easy and we found many wonderful places to visit. We definitely plan on returning....hopefully soon!

What a Wonderful Find

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for a week in this wonderful cottage. The cottage was clean and comfortable and very convenient to the beach. It was well equipped with everything you could possibly need and just a quick walk to a wonderful little artsy town in Gulfport with great restaurants and shopping. It was convenient to everywhere we wanted to go but tucked away so that at night it felt like we were away on an island.

We hope to have the opportunity to return soon and I wouldn't want to stay anywhere but here.
