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

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!

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!

Best accident i've ever had

Best accident i've ever had
  • 5 of 5
Made a reservation at another local hotel and restaurant that was very nice. when we arrived they were double booked and i thought we were stuck. Then there was August and Susanne to the rescue. What a beautiful place! The last minute organizing was unbelievable! If you want to feel like you are going out of town to stay with a friend this is the place to go! I have been lucky enough to stay 2 different weekends and we just planned our 3rd. We were lucky enough to book 4th of july back on mothers day! Susanne and August actually took time out sunday morning to go out for breakfast and after took a walk around the neighborhood so August could show us the places and little hidden treasures the average visitor would never find! So if by any chance you can get them to just spend a little while with you to show you around jump at the chance!!! To mention anything about the room, i had the best afternoon nap watching tv on the sun porch then i have had in years. It is impossible to not pass right out as soon as you hit the bed in the bedroom. It sits right in the middle of everything you need. once you check in there is pretty much no reason to drive anywhere else. not to spoil anything but when the sun drops and you walk back to the room as soon as you get thru the gat they now exactly how to set the atmosphere for a perfect relaxing night. Cant wait for the end of august!!!! I could go on for hours!!!! Thanks you guys!!

Owner's Response: Eddie & Kat,

Thanks so much, we appreciate your kind words and truly enjoy being your hosts at the Beach Breeze Bungalow. We look forward to your next visit. It's funny that you call finding us the 'Best accident I've ever had', lately, we have been hearing from first time travelers that they discovered the waterfront district of Gulfport by accident as well. We call this a 'happy accident'. It is like being on an island in which driving is optional and time has slowed down... enough so that you can rest, relax and enjoy an afternoon nap!

See you soon,
August & Susanne

In a word...PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
Beach Breeze Bungalow was everything we hoped it would be...and more! The owners, August and Susanne were super friendly and accommodating. They are pretty new to the area, but were still able to point us in the right direction whenever we had questions. The property was gorgeous...they have really put a lot of work into this historic home.

The rental unit was clean, spacious and had everything we needed for the weekend. We ate out both nights we were there, but the unit has a beautifully renovated and fully-equipped kitchen that would be perfect to cook in. They had Fiji and sparkling water in the fridge, K-cups and tea in the pantry and every utensil you would need. They even had beach towels...It really seems like August and Susanne thought of everything!

I have lived in the Tampa Bay area all my life and somehow I've never heard of Gulport...Man, have I been missing out! This little beach town has everything we were looking for - Great food, fun atmosphere, beach, beautiful art galleries, excellent shopping...and all within walking distance.

My wife and I went to Pia's Trattoria (literally steps away from the rental unit) for dinner Friday night and came away impressed. Great Southern Italian cuisine! We also visited Peg's for micro-brewed beer and mahi tacos...Outstanding! Last food note - the corn crab chowder at the Back Fin Blue Cafe was the best soup my wife and I have ever had!

The Gulfport beach won't win any awards, but it was clean, quiet and less than a 5 minute walk from the bungalow. There is also a pier that we saw locals catching fish on all weekend...

Although August and Susanne's gallery wasn't ready yet, we caught a glimpse of some of their pieces...WOW! My wife and I can't wait to visit again to check it out when its done...their work is truly impressive! If you are looking for beautiful and interesting works of art in Gulfport, there are plenty of galleries on the main drag to peruse...

Overall, our impression of Beach Breeze Bungalow was an extremely positive one and even though we live close, we will make it a point to visit often so we can enjoy everything that Gulfport has to offer!

Thanks August and Susanne! We will definitely recommend you guys to all of our friends and family!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Tony and Ashley, our first VRBO guests, for the review, we appreciate your kind words. We want you to know that when you stay with us again, the upstairs deck will be complete! Also, because of your suggestion, we are looking into the idea of providing bicycles so that our guests can pedal around town. We look forward to your next visit.

Warm regards,
August & Susanne
