About August and Susanne Vernon

What happens when two artists from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania go on vacation to the Gulf Coast of Florida in their first year as empty nesters and stumble across their dream home just a block away from the beach? They buy it of course and renovate it into a Fine Art Gallery and Studios on the first story and an elegant tropical getaway on the second story. Our names are Susanne and August, and we would like to welcome you to step back in time and experience a relaxing 'old Florida' vacation in style.

August and Susanne Vernon purchased this bungalow in 2013

Why August and Susanne Vernon chose Gulfport

The Bungalows location is perfectly situated in the heart of Gulfports Waterfront District. Experience the colorfully vibrant restaurants and shopping of Beach Blvd directly in front of the BBB, while the secluded 2nd floor rear location provides a tranquil oasis for your ideal vacation.

This property also offers a unique artistic experience. The owners August and Susanne operate their art studio and gallery located on the Beach Blvd side of the property. Whether you are lounging in the tropical courtyard garden, or browsing the fine artistry of the gallery, the Bungalow is sure to offer a delightful vacation experience.

What makes this bungalow unique

Have we mentioned we are in the Heart of Gulfport's Waterfront District? We are surrounded by wonderful restaurants and shops in an undiscovered jewel of Floridas' Gulf Beach towns. All year, every Tuesday is the Tuesday Fresh Market festival. Every first Friday and third Saturday there is an Artwalk Festival... these events take place right at our front door. We would be happy to accommodate any special requests for your stay as your personal concierge.

Susanne is a renown mosaic artist and instructor. She is happy to offer private or small group mosaic workshops. Consider an artistic tropical retreat for yourself, or with friends and family.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“August and Suzanne we thoroughly enjoyed your hospitality and accommodations. You've done a beautiful job with everything. Our only regret is that we only had 1 night to enjoy your place. Thank you very much.

Kindly, Buffi P”

Absolutely Charming!

  • 5 of 5

We really liked Gulfport! There is no congestion like so many other parts of Florida and the town has that laid back easy feeling of old Florida. The apartment is located above the art gallery run by Susanne and August. They are great hosts and more than willing to advise and recommend activities and places to visit based on your interests and needs. The apartment is very tastefully decorated and very comfortable. It is a good fit for two people. Across the street there are two truly exceptional restaurants. It was so nice to walk around the village and not have to drive anywhere once we returned home. We enjoyed our stay and plan to return!

What a great location!

  • 5 of 5

The Beach Breeze Bungalow is a second floor three room apartment, above and in back of a very cute, busy art gallery. It is most comfortable for two people. The rooms and towels and sheets are refreshed each Monday. Street parking is almost always available out front. August and Susanne, both artists, are wonderful hosts, always eager to accommodate any request we had. The location is fantastic! We walked the one and a half short blocks to the beach every day. The beach is clean, never crowded, and has a fun assortment of birds - terns, skimmers, ibis, and pelicans. The condo is in the middle of Beach Blvd, in the middle of Farmers Market and the Arts and Crafts Fair every week, and surrounded by good restaurants. There were lots of celebrations going on every weekend on the waterfront street -lots of music. It is an idyllic tree-lined location ...sort of '60's with open mike at restaurants and lots of entertainment. Great place to ride bicycles - the bungalow provides two bikes. We would certainly return.

Our home in Gulfport

  • 5 of 5

This was our first long term stay in Gulfport and we had a great time staying right in the middle of town above the art gallery. This upstairs apartment was in exceptional condition, newly renovated, was well maintained and well appointed. The location is great. You can walk to all the good restaurants and join in the Tuesday Fresh Market activities and the art walks. Downtown St Pete is only 6 miles and the St Pete beaches are also only 6 miles. We took several day trips but always looked forward to coming back to Gulfport. We became good friends with our hosts August and Susanne; both are very attentive to whatever you may need. They have created a very comfortable atmosphere and helped us feel at home. They are both exceptional artists and anyone staying in the bungalow should also enjoy their gallery. We will definitely return.

August and Susanne created a magical stay for me and my daughter. The bungalo is a work of art and so cozy. Everything is fresh and new. Fresh flowers and cold filtered water. . A beautiful private deck and two shiny new beach bikes made our stay a stress free retreat. The walk through the enchanted candle lit pathway to our entrance was etherial and lovely. If you have an opportunity to experience this home, you will be blessed.

Cozy Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We took a wrong turn on the way to Beach Breeze Bungalow and called August for help with directions. He not only gave explicit directions but actually stayed on the line with us until we reached the bungalow, stepping into the street to flag us down. This highly personal attention continued for the rest of our stay.

The bungalow is a real home away from home. It's immaculately clean and welcoming, and there are little artistic decorating touches in every room. It's such a relaxing place to spend some time. We were very impressed with both the bungalow itself and the thoughtful couple who were out hosts.

The only things missing were our feather pillows from home -- but I'm sure by the time we visit next, there might be a couple!

Owner's Response: Chris & John, Thank you, we were happy to make your acquaintance as well. Please don't hesitate to get in touch with us if there is anything we can do for you here. We will work on the book, but right now, I have to run - we are on the way to the store for pillows! Susanne & August

Beautiful people, great town, exceptional accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

Last month, I had the oppurtunity to stay at the Beach Breeze Bungalow. What a gem!

There were several components to my stay that made this such a wonderful experience. First let me start by stating that August and Suzanne are incredible hosts. They are warm, friendly and accommodating (not to mention extremely talented artists). The bungalow is in the back of their home/gallery. They know the town, the best beaches, and restaurants. Every recommendation that they made was spot on!

The town was another win. It was full of great restaurants, shopping and the bay, all with in walking distance.

Now about the bungalow! It was beautifully decorated and comfortable. The kitchen was modern and fully stocked with everything that I would need for cooking, as well as a Keurig coffee maker with coffees and teas. The bed was perfect. I can say that I had the best night's sleep I have had in a very long time.

Thanks so much for providing such a wonderful experience. I will be back!
