About Beth Sexworth

Currently living in Austin, Texas, recently transplanted from Scottsdale. I oversee the investments of a family foundation and lead nature photography workshops.

Beth Sexworth purchased this house in 2002

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.

Reviewer Comments:

For the past 35 years I have literally lived in high rise hotels, many 5 stars...traveling as a speaker/consultant. On vacation my husband and I love quiet, ground floor cottages within walking distance to the beach and cafes. Gulfport is an eclectic, quiet town...plenty of walking streets, parks and the waterfront overlooking St Pete along the bay. We loved the shops, great restaurants, the Farmers market on Tuesdays and cooking in two meals per day. If you are looking for a well appointed clean cottage with all the comforts of home for rest and relaxation, I highly recommend the Flamingo Cottage. We loved our time there and will be back for a longer stay the next time. A great location for day tripping to Sarasota, Tampa, St Pete or Clearwater.

Reviewer Comments:

This was our first trip to Gulfport, Fl & first time renting a cottage from Splashy Ventures. We truly enjoyed Gulfport & surrounding area. Gulfport is a very pet friendly town, we loved the farmer's market on Tuesdays and hanging out at the bars/restaurants. There's also a pier for fishing and a nice park along the beach. As for Flamingo Cottage it was just perfect for two & a small pet. It was very clean, nicely furnished, there was ample kitchen supplies & equipment, the bedroom was large, huge closet, ample drawer space, very comfortable bed. We had direct access to the laundry room which was a huge plus. The property itself was nicely landscaped, well maintained, the cottage is in a perfect location, just a block from the beach, short walking distance to the pier, many restaurants and bars, parks, etc. Gulfport is very pet friendly. The only disappointment in Flamingo Cottage was the very tiny bathroom which was located off the kitchen. The shower should have had a light as it's very dark and there should have been an exhaust fan. My husband and I hated to leave Gulfport and Flamingo Cottage, we truly enjoyed our two weeks and we will probably be returning next year and most definitely stay at Flamingo Cottage.

Vacation Disappointment

  • 2 of 5

Rating Details:

I was somewhat dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.

I was somewhat unhappy with the location.

The vacation rental was clean.

The property manager was somewhat unhelpful.

Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental.

Reviewer Comments:

The unit is old and laid out badly. It needs some serious restoration. Waking up every morning to two or three dead roaches and countless silverfish didn't help improve things. But most outrageous was the total lack of maid service, something you get in even the cheapest motels. That I had to pay $40 additional every time I wanted the floors mopped or the sheets changed was insane. I won't be back.

We has a lovely stay at Flamingo cottage. A small problem with the shower draining was sorted out very quickly by Sally, who was very pleasant and we has long chats with her on several mornings. The cottage was in a good position for all the places we love.
