About Beth Sexworth

Traveler, photographer, host

Beth Sexworth purchased this house in 2003

Why Beth Sexworth chose St Pete Beach

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.

What makes this house unique

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!

Reviewer Comments:

My friends and I came from Philadelphia, PA. for a friends wedding that was held at St. Pete's Beach (only 15-20 min drive). When we first arrived, we were very pleased with the home. It was perfect for the six of us (all couples). Just a block or two away there are several restaurants, If you love seafood I recommend going to Maddies. Their food is AMAZING!

We only had one slight issue (that was caused by the previous tenant) with maintenance but, Beth was right on it and accommodated our needs and the issue was fixed within a reasonable timeframe. We all said we'd love to come back some time and stay here again.

Reviewer Comments:

The Dolphin House was wonderful and just as described. We couldn't have asked for a better vacation home to accommodate two families traveling together. We each had our own space as well as a shared space for cooking and eating.Everything we needed was so easy to find as the kitchen was so well organized with labels in all the cupboards and drawers as to their contents. Gulfport is such an artsy and eclectic town and we were within walking distance to everything. We were also an easy drive to Clearwater, Tarpon Springs and other tourist locations. We highly recommend the Dolphin House to anyone wanting a great vacation home.

Reviewer Comments:

This was our third visit to Dolphin House in Gulfport, FL. We love Gulfport and we love Dolphin House. Gulfport is like old-time Florida, quiet and peaceful, easy to park and drive, good restaurants, art walks, and right on Boca Ciega Bay. Dolphin House is spacious, comfortable and well-equipped, including three flat-screen TVs and wi-fi.

Most of all, it is dog-friendly, with a charming fenced-in backyard and patio. The owner continuously makes improvements and upgrades to the property. It is only a short walk to the beach and to the nice restaurants. We will definitely be back again.(The only suggestion I would have is that the larger sofa in the main living room seems to be getting uncomfortable, without enough back support.) Otherwise, everything else is just great!

Reviewer Comments:

This house has plenty of room for up to 8 people and is larger than it may seem. It is stocked and furnished as described, and the outdoor/patio setting is very pleasant. It is in a great location for walking into the little town of Gulfport, which we loved, as well as being easy driving distance of St. Petersburg Beach, downtown St. Petersburg, and Clearwater. The surrounding neighborhood is very modest, but safe.
