About Larry K Hooker

Moved to Saint Petersburg from Rehoboth Beach DE in 2013 and have fallen in love with the area. Many great neighborhoods including Gulfport.

Larry K Hooker purchased this bungalow in 2014

Why Larry K Hooker chose Gulfport

On a quiet street but minutes from all the activities that Gulfport and Saint Petersburg have to offer. Love the relaxed laid back artsy atmosphere that is Gulfport.

What makes this bungalow unique

House has that homey feel when you walk through the door. Updated beautiful functional kitchen. Family room that opens to the enclosed pool/spa. Convenience to so many things to do yet feels like you are not in a city.

"A Little Bit of Heaven"

  • 5 of 5

The day I found this lovely house on VRBO was our lucky day. My husband and I spent 4 glorious weeks exploring Gulfport and surrounding areas and always looked forward to coming "home", where we spent

many happy late afternoons and early evenings sitting outside in the backyard by the pool. It was the most

relaxing environment and pleasantly quiet.

My husband and I have spent the last 8 years renting in the St. Petersburg area and I have to say that this Gulfport house was by far the most superior of all our other rentals. The owners, Larry and Frank, were more than accommodating and two delightful people. I would LOVE to have them as neighbors.

If our health prevails, I would love to rent from them in the future.

Two Happy Vacationeers

  • 5 of 5

Everything the December tenants wrote we totally agree with. We were blessed to have this beautiful, comfortable house the month of January. From the moment we arrived we felt at home. Gulfport truly is special to us as my wife was born in Saint Petersburg and her grandparents lived in Gulfport. Gulfport has not lost its charm and has so much to offer. The house is just 1/2 block from a nature preserve with a walking trail surrounded by a beautiful bayou. We were able to see many different sea birds, and everyone we met along the trail were always very friendly. The neighborhood is quiet and friendly at the same time. Our son-in-law took advantage of the bikes and took a morning ride down to the beach in Gulfport which is just a few blocks away. There are numerous restaurants in Gulfport and the surrounding area. All the local beaches are not only beautiful but are located within 7 miles of the house. Downtown Saint Petersburg is only 10 minutes away and features such attractions as the Dali Museum, Museum of Fine Arts and Sunken Gardens to name a few.

Larry and Frank are the most gracious of host and we highly recommend this home to anyone who desires to have a "home away from home". We definitely not only recommend this home but we hope to return in the near future.

Hidden Gem of Gulfport!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were so honored to be the first tenants for this gem of a home. We stayed a month and honestly, it was one of our best vacations ever. Larry and Frank could not have been more gracious hosts. For starters, the home is fabulous, the Lanai around the pool is completely private and makes you think while swimming in the pool or just sitting there taking it all in, "this is the life." The marina and town are just a short walk away and it is there that you get a true feel of this unique town. The home is fitted with the best quality of everything and it was obviously professionally decorated. They even provided two bicycles. The neighbors were especially friendly, inviting us snowbirds to their Holiday progressive dinner!

Gulfport is one of Florida's best kept secrets and here is a home that is one of its best kept rentals. Thank you Larry and Frank! We will be back.
