Reviewer Comments:
Splashy Ventures was very easy to work with. We will use this company again in the future. However, I was disappointed with the accuracy of my web search. When I searched St. Pete Beach vacation rental Palm Cottage was in that search. Thinking it was the best option I selected it. Only after giving a deposit did I get the address of the home, which I then discovered was Gulfport, not St. Pete Beach. I feel that was misleading. It also described a beach within walking distance. Although that was correct, there was sand, the local beach was very small and the water was landlocked, not actual Gulf water. We spent the entire stay driving at least 10 minutes to St. Pete Beach, then back to the cottage to clean up and then back to the beach for dinners.

The home itself was very nice. It was clean and well stocked with kitchen appliances, pots, pans, etc. Our only complaint about the house was the wood floors. Although they were nice to look at, they creaked and cracked loudly when walking, in very room. When one person woke up in the middle of the night, the entire house woke up. I'm not sure if they are just old, or installed without a proper underlayment.

Bottom line, if this house was located on St. Pete Beach, it would be utilized by our family in the future. Unfortunately, location was not ideal.

Manager responded on 8/24/2014:
The listing indicates in the name of the property and in the description that Palm Cottage is located in Gulfport. The water is not landlocked - that would be a lake. Gulfport is located on the southern side of Boca Ciega Bay. I'm also not sure why she gave it a 3 for cleanliness but says in her review it was clean! Gulfport also draws people from all over to several of its restaurants so it is not necessary to drive anywhere for dinner.

Reviewer Comments:
We absolutely loved Palm Cottage! It was easy to rent and exactly as was stated in the description. It's well decorated, well appointed and in a great location. It was also immaculately clean. The neighborhood is eclectic, with artists, retirees, and just people making a living. The restaurants and shops in the neighborhood are great, everyone is friendly, and there are dogs everywhere. Gulfport has it's own beach (just a couple of blocks away) and there are lots of popular beaches and attractions nearby. We had a great experience and will definitely stay there again.

Reviewer Comments:
The property is a charming little bungalow that is a very close to the beach / main street of Gulfport. Although the property is older, it is well maitained, clean and offers all the comforts of home. The property managers were very responsive and even brought over some beach toys to play with for our 4 year old. Gulfport itself is a vibrant and quirky area of St. Pete. This was our second time staying here and would strongly recommend it. Gulfport is not as touristy as the main Gulf beaches, and has a distinct charm all its own. The local restaurants are fantastic. We would certainly stay here again.

Reviewer Comments:
Property general condition was satisfied, the area was nice, near to a lot of shopping, restaurant and entertainment. The only think I did not like was the reach itself, beach area very nice, but the beach itself was not a beach but a bay, that was the only thing I did not like ,beach water was dirty. Everything else I recommended/ We rent the place because beach was walking distance and it was, but the water was not nice.

Working on-line can be nervous sometimes but there was never a question the owner failed to clarify right away. Very competent and kind. We upheld our end to leave the place clean and our security deposit was promptly refunded. Definitely would use again and recommend to friends!
