GREAT LITTLE PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here for two weeks with two young children (4yr and 2yr). Fully enclosed garden was great for the kids to run around. Accomodation was good size, and the kitchen had everything we needed. Location was good, being a short walk to the main street/beach etc. St Pete Beach is also close, approx 5-10min drive. Overall a greta little place, in a nice neighbourhood. Would stay again, and recommend to anyone.

PERFECT WEEKEND GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at Two Waves Cottage! Four adults, travelling with a two-months infant, we were glad to see that everything in and out of the house was exactly as we were told.
House was very comfortable, clean and nicely kept. With a beachy and cozy decor, we felt at home right away.
Arrangements for arrival and departure were easily made and we were provided with thoughtful details, instructions and recommendations to go around the house and Gulfport.
Though we didn't need any special assistance, Jannesse was helpful and we knew we could reach her if that was required.
We found the little beachfront city to be as charming and slow paced as we were hoping for.It was a short vacation, but we surely enjoyed the time spent over there!
Thanks Sandy & Graham and for you hospitality.

ENJOY THE SUN & OCEAN WAVES AT TWO WAVES!

Enjoy the sun & ocean waves at Two Waves!
  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed at Two Waves for just under a week.

We really enjoyed the town of Gulfport. Many of the smaller homes in this little community were built in the 20's, 30's and 40's giving it a very quaint feeling. The downtown area where most of the businesses are is on Beach Blvd. and is surrounded by an 'arts district'. Great restaurants, art galleries, curio shops etc. and on Tuesdays an open air farmers market with local produce but also specialty food items that you shouldn't miss. And at a place on the ocean called the casino (its not a casino) there is dancing.

Two Waves cottage is about 5 or 6 blocks from the beach and only 3 or 4 from Gulfport's Beach Blvd. An easy walk or an even easier bike ride. Going in the opposite direction one is headed toward the city of St. Pete. It's only a very short distance to all the shopping centers and stores like Bealls and Walgreens that you might need for swim wear, supplies or groceries & wines.

The cottage is delightful, airy, open and so cute. It is very clean and well kept. The neighborhood felt safe and neighboring homes were in good shape. A nice area to walk or bicycle around to look at the myriad of colorful homes and yards.

The owners have done a wonderful job of decorating and renovating this house into a pleasant vacation home. The living room has two (or is it three?) sofas with plenty of room for 4-6 people to sit comfortably around the coffee table.

The kitchen is outfitted with good appliances and enough counter space to really cook up a meal. There is a separate dining area off the kitchen with a door that leads out to a great patio with comfortable patio furniture and an umbrella. There's a nice little garden to look at surrounding the sitting area. We saw numerous little lizards sunning themselves while we sat out drinking our morning coffee, reading the newspaper and reviewing our emails.

Both bedrooms are of good size and have very comfortable beds. And while there is no tub in the bathroom the shower is great with good pressure and very clean and inviting.

Neither I nor my wife have any complaints. We really enjoyed our stay. The hosts Sandi and Graham are easy to work with and made our visit very relaxing and comfortable. We'll be back. You can count on that. :-)

Thanks guys!

FOODIE'S DELIGHT.

Foodie's delight.
  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Two Waves Cottage for a week and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The place was beautifully designed and spotlessly clean. We are foodies and were tempted by what we had heard about some of the restaurants in town. We alternated between eating out and preparing our own home-cooked meals and it was a gastronomical treat! We bought fresh food at the Tuesday market and cooked up a storm in the well stocked kitchen. They even had a slow cooker! The restaurants proved to be excellent. In particular, Pia's, Peg's, and the Peninsula Inn were outstanding. When we were not sampling cuisine, we enjoyed hanging out on the cottage's very comfortable back patio and visiting the local beaches. We also went antiquing in downtown St. Petersburg. What a wonderful neighbourhood and delightful cottage! We hope to be back soon. Highly recommended.

FUN IN GULFPORT

  • 5 of 5
We found this cottage to be perfectly located for the exploring we did in Florida. It's just a few minutes in to St. Petersburg, where we visited the Dali Museum, Sunken Gardens, the Yacht Club, and a number of galleries, then shopped the antique strip. We visited St. Pete Beach and enjoyed the shopping on Corey Avenue and the spectacular beaches. And we enjoyed exploring Gulfport itself. Really good food along Beach Boulevard and we went dancing at the Gulfport Casino on the beach. We found the cottage to be charming and well appointed with plenty of space to relax after our busy days out. We really appreciated the welcome book with information about the area. We had an excellent vacation and would not hesitate to recommend this property.

RETURN TO TWO WAVES.

  • 5 of 5
My second visit to Two Waves Cottage was just as lovely as the first. There were some nice upgrades since our first visit. The bathroom has been renovated and there's new furniture in the living room. But it hasn't lost its old Florida charm. It's a very comfortable place to stay. The kitchen is bright and cheerful, and has all the utensils I could possibly need. And of course the neighbourhood is just wonderful. With the warm May weather, I particularly enjoyed the back patio and the local beach. I also went on a dolphin watching boat tour, which was amazing! It was a great week, very relaxing. I'll be back again next year.
