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 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.

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 thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Dolphin House. The house was clean and comfortable with good wireless. A half block walk to great pubs and restaurants. Downtown Gulfport is hopping with funky art, music and friendly folks.

Reviewer Comments:
This was the ideal place for our family which ranges in age from 7 months to 90 years. The house is divided in such a way that we could used one half for little ones and the other half for those who preferred quiet. Gulfport is a quaint village that lends itself to rest and easy access to fishing, eating, hanging out, partying, walking and jogging. We would definitely consider returning.

Reviewer Comments:
The house is in a great location where it's away from the craziness of St. Pete but you can walk to nice restaurants in Gulfport. The condition of the house was fine but there was an unpleasant musty/cat litter like smell that seemed to permeate everything. That being said the kitchen was amazingly well stocked with equipment we don't even have at home (ice cream maker!) and it was the perfect size for our family.

We were three single women. The house is roomy with a sitting area and two bedrooms & bath in the front and then after the kitchen/dining area, a larger family room, master bath and laundry. Back porch is nice. The front bathroom could be updated, but its acceptable.

Gulfport is a cute little town with one street of shops and restaurants ending at the bay. Good restaurants, easy walking around, close to St. Petersburg and other interesting places. All in all a wonderful week.
