An award winning designer and builder, Mr. Brattain has brought his family's history to life in the quaint town of Gulfport, FL.

Award wining custom home builder born in Tampa, raised in Carmel Indiana.

Jimmy Brattain purchased this villa in 2012

Mr. Brattain purchased this 1938 home situated on a double lot with the thought of scraping the structure in order to build two new homes for re-sale but quickly broke his golden rule and that was falling in love with the property. What started off as an estimated 6 month project has turned into a 2 and a half year labor of intense love. The estimated total completion of Mr. Brattain's vision is early 2016 by adding a fire pit and swimming pool.

Part of the décor is inspired by long nights as child watching old movies with his departed grandmother and other spaces, by the initials of his grandfather, RL. The only example of residential art deco architectural to remain in Gulfport, was saved by a passion to remember two very wonderful people... And as a result, those travelers fortunate enough to stumble across this gem, will see first hand what love can create.

Exceptional in every way!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I rented this apartment for a few weeks, and could not have been more pleased. Everything - from the furnishings to landscaping - is superb. The apartment is beautifully appointed, comfortable, and perfect for either a couple or a family with a child. It is within a five minute walk to shops and excellent dining in downtown Gulfport. The owner accepts pets, and could not have been more helpful and gracious. Easily a five-star rating.

As advertised!

  • 5 of 5
On our first visit to Gulfport, we stayed in this lovely duplex. When we arrived, the owner met us with a bottle of wine and a smile. We were one of the first guests in this duplex. Everything was sparkling—a brand new home, decorated with taste and whimsy. The owner was helpful, giving us information about the town (what a fun place it is!) and the area, and made himself available should we have any questions. We would recommend this home to friends and family, and would stay there again.

Perfect Gulfport location, and a few pleasant avant-garde bonuses to boot!

  • 5 of 5
Great location made for easy walks to all the fun shops and hangouts of Gulfport. The property has a wonderful private patio with BBQ that makes us second guess our choice to walk to the beach for happy hour. The management provided us with service beyond and above any former VRBO locations. This is now our go-to spot for our frequent trips to Gulfport.

Gulfport Duplex

  • 5 of 5
This duplex is as advertised. Completely remodeled and renovated to practically new condition. No expense was spared in terms if decor, appliances, flooring, etc. We were lucky enough to get to visit both sides and they are both wonderful. The location is close enough to all the activities you might want to take part in for a Florida trip without staying in an over crowded condo or high rise. The city of Gulfport is quaint and has plenty of shopping, restaurants and other activities to keep you busy as well. We hope to come back and visit soon.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5
Both the shower and sink taps in the bathroom needed tightening. All other aspects of this property were excellent. Nicely decorated, all new appliances, would consider renting again and have already recommended this property to others.

Amazing Place!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed for 2 months in this wonderful duplex. The house was still under renovation, but majority of the interior was completed, so it didn't matter to us. We entered the agreement with full disclosure that there was still some work going on at the home. Not a problem for us at all. The owner of the home is amazing to work with. Very responsive, and wants to make sure his guests are completely satisfied. It was fun being one of the first real guests to stay there, as we had the opportunity to help the owner fine tune the amenities. The home has been lovingly restored into duplexes. Each side has it's own personality and is furnished and decorated to perfection. Don't hesitate about staying here and especially don't hesitate about visiting Gulfport. The location of the home made exploring Gulfport SO much more fun. We biked and walked everywhere and just really immersed ourselves in this little town. St. Pete was very easy to get to and when I needed a city fix that's where I headed. My husband played golf at several different courses and all were easy to get to.
