About Paula Fenzau

I'm originally from Chicago, been married to a wonderful guy for 20 years. We love to go sailing, restore houses and show people our beautiful quirky beach town. Also have to mention that I am an avid hockey fan!

Paula Fenzau purchased this bungalow in 2004

Why Paula Fenzau chose Gulfport

We bought this property in 2004 and have been restoring it with the intention of recreating the beach camp that this property was back in 1939. At some point in its history the property became known as The Wishing Well. The renovation has truly been a labor of love. Each house has been beautifully renovated with its own unique features.

The Wishing Well encompasses half of a city block and is a wonderful place to relax or enjoy all the fun and quirkiness of Gulfport! Located in the Art District in Gulfport it is steps to the coffee shops, art shops, restaurants, beach bars and beach.

What makes this bungalow unique

Gulfport is small city on the west coast of Florida with a wonderful 'Old Florida' feel. Take in a baseball game, deep sea fishing, sailing or or see the many art galleries and shopping in neighboring St Pete. Make sure you visit Ft. Desoto Park. It is a 350 acre park on the beach. It has been voted one of the most beautiful beaches in the US and is truly magical at sunrise and sunset. The park is just a short drive from Gulfport.

Awesome House w/ Awesome Owners!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough good things about Paula, Alex, and the Longhouse. The home was perfect for the 4 of us and our two little dogs. Everything was very tidy and comfortable and the location was ideal! Everything we needed was right there - including extras like bikes, beach chairs, and kayaks!

Alex and Paula are fantastic. They are very friendly and fun to chat with. They are great people to rent from and this house is wonderful! I highly recommend the Longhouse.

A perfect get-a-way

  • 5 of 5

We brought our daughter and twin grand-daughters for a 3-day stay in our native Gulfport. We couldn't have asked for more in a beach cottage. It was perfectly located close to the beach, restaurants and shopping - and was beautifully furnished. The only downside was that we couldn't stay longer. We'll be back!!

Perfect Long Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The perfect sanctuary for two gals who needed a quiet place for some writing and relaxation. The house had all the amenities we could ask for and more. The location was fabulous--only a short walk to lots of great restaurants, bars, shops, etc. We enjoyed lovely sunsets from the rooftop of a nearby restaurant (so sorry I forgot the name!)

The owners of the cottage were super easy to communicate with (always replied to my emails quickly and kindly) and they were gracious enough to let us bring a furry friend along as a third guest.

We don't live far from the area so we will definitely be staying here again in the future when we need another getaway. Two enthusiastic thumbs up.

My mother's 90th birthday vacation

  • 5 of 5

My mother and I thoroughly enjoyed our 3-night stay in this darling cottage in Gulfport, Florida. We could not get over how every comfort of home was provided. The home was immaculate, very well maintained and in a very quiet and safe neighborhood.

Gulfport's wonderful array of restaurants, shops and entertainment were literally steps away. We ate most nights nearby taking in everything from italian sausage for lunch to fine dining at night. Each was a wonderful experience.

Being an artist myself, I highly appreciated the creative energy and eclectic feel of the coastal community. I would most definitely recommend this property and plan to return as soon as possible.

Alex and Paula were wonderful and very responsive to getting the rental secured. They handled everything well.

Thanks to both of you for making our visit "home" so wonderful.

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

This is a delightful home in Gulfport and the owner is just wonderful. The house had everything you could possibly need and more! It was comfortable, clean and well stocked. There were old bikes to use to get around town which were just a blast. As a frequent visitor to Gulfport, I will definitely look to stay here again! Thank you Paula.
