St Pete Beach House Rental Photos and Description

Split floor plan for couples or families - sleeps 6 - pets

Dolphin House is a charming home with a great layout for families, friends or couples. The home has a large open feel.

Dolphin House is conveniently located in a very walk-able and quiet residential neighborhood just one block off Gulfport's main boulevard in the heart of the Beach & Art District. Two blocks from the beach, fishing pier, Veteran's Park and local dog park. The private home is close to everything you need to be close to on your holiday. Centrally located to Gulfport, St Pete Beach and St Petersburg, with Tampa's activities just another 15 minutes further.

Dolphin House has a split floor plan with one living area, two bedrooms and one bath in the front of the house and the main living area, dining area, master bedroom and master bath in the back of the house. The galley kitchen is at the center of the home. The front bath has a tub/shower and there are two spacious bedrooms each with large windows. One bedroom has a queen bed and the other bedroom has a full bed. Both bedrooms have large windows. An aero bed can also be provided on request. The master has a king bed, two large dressers and large closet. The back bath can be entered without going through the master bedroom and has a vanity, sink, toilet and new walk-in tile shower.

Dolphin House is a great place for gathering friends and families. The living spaces inside and out are great for letting you stay together, but having some separate space at the same time. The front living/library has a love seat and two chairs, plus a flat panel HDTV with built-in DVD. The back living area has a full-length sofa, loveseat and large flat screen HDTV. Dolphin House has a separate laundry/office with new large capacity Maytag washer and dryers and table with PC The kitchen has a full-size range, small eat-in table, dishwasher and full-size refrigerator.

The covered rear porch has all-weather-wicker seating and a gas grill. The paved patio area has a large glass and patio table that comfortably seats six. Tropical full landscaping with lighting

and paved walkways.

The home is decorated in soft colors of the Sea and Tropics. The kitchen can be closed off from the front of the house via the pocket door, and from the rear of the house via the double French doors.

blow on cool spring and fall days.

Beth Sexworth purchased this house in 2003

Dolphin House has a wonderfully open and comfortable feel. Each room has lots of windows, the floor plan and fantastic and the location in was everything we were looking for. I had been traveling to the area for several years and purchased Palm Cottage in 2002 while kicking around at open houses after a business trip. Dolphin House came on the market the next year, and we had the opportunity to purchase it and The Sand Dollar at the same time. While separate by a fence and gate, the two properties can be rented together to accommodate groups of 8-10.

Gulfport is a lovely community, without strip malls and high-rises, so that it actually feels like home every time we arrive. There are tons of local events throughout the year - a little something for everyone. You can walk most anywhere you need to in the Gulfport area - to the beach, to the Art Village, to the dog park, to the library, to the Casino, to many restaurants and live music venues and to the pier and Veteran's memorial park. Easy access to the Pinellas Trail and you can travel for miles up the Florida west coast.

We really love the design of the home. There are two separate living areas, so there's more than one place to relax and gather outside of the bedrooms. The split floor plan - with two bedrooms, one bath and one living area in the front and one bedroom, one bath and the second living area in the back - make it perfect for families or couples. You can stay under one room yet have a little separation and privacy. The front of the house can actually be closed off from the kitchen via a pocket door, and there are double French doors between the other side of the kitchen and the back living area & dining that may be closed as well. There are several large windows along the side of the house along the kitchen and dining area that look into the tropically landscaped sideyard and path. I love to open the blinds and feel that I have brought the outdoors in, no matter the weather. The entire house has tile floors which feel fantastic on bare feet in the summer, and each of the bedrooms is generously sized. There's a nice covered porch in the back with patio seating, plus a patio table off the porch on the pavers, for outside dining. We just love it!

We just returned to snowy PA after a wonderful 28 day stay at the Dolphin House in Gulfport. The place was very clean, surprisingly large and well laid out, had a kitchen with everything you could possibly need (with all the good restaurants in Gulfport, I only cooked 6 times), and beautiful landscaping. It was the perfect place to have guests as there are two living areas and three flat screen tvs. It is a block away from all the action, but the street is very quiet. The management (Beth) was extremely helpful. Any problem was dealt with immediately (ex: plumber). The only negative things were a dog odor on the sofa and the neighboring houses are fairly rundown. The Dolphin House is the most charming on the street. We loved our stay and we loved Gulfport!

We had a pre-Christmas vacation in the Dolphin House with our 2 Afghan Hounds. The house is spacious and has all high-end electronics. The backyard is completely fenced (6') and beautifully landscaped. With a beautiful park just blocks away to the water, and the Arts District one block away -- you couldn't find a more perfect location in Gulfport!

Reviewer Comments:
Our family members came to Gulfport, Florida from 5 states to attend a nephew's wedding in Bradenton. We were all flying into Tampa. Gulfport is a charming waterfront area of St. Petersburg just 30 miles south of the airport and 30 miles north of Bradenton. Most of the rentals here are one or two bedrooms. We were delighted with the spacious, 3-bedroom Dolphin House. The layout includes the initial historic cottage with two bedrooms, a bath down the hall and a cozy living room. Then you walk through the updated kitchen into a great room with a dining table that seats 8, a large sitting area with TV, an upscale bathroom with walk-in shower, a laundry/computer room, and a spacious master bedroom. The fenced-in yard is well-maintained with a back patio area for grilling and outdoor dining. Dolphin House was perfect for the six of us. One morning, one person slept in late while two practiced Tai Chi with a DVD in the back living room, two were in the kitchen and another was reading a book in the front living room. We love to cook, and found everything we needed in the kitchen, including electric mixers, muffin tins, and both a drip and a French press coffee maker. We are looking for an excuse to stay in Dolphin House again!
