I'm originally from Chicago, been married to a wonderful guy for almost 20 years. We love to go sailing, restore houses and show people our beautiful quirky beach town. Also have to mention that I am an avid hockey fan!
We bought this property in 2004 and have been restoring it with the intention of recreating the beach camp that this property was back in 1939. At some point in its history the property became known as The Wishing Well. The renovation has truly been a labor of love. Each house has been beautifully renovated with its own unique features.
The Wishing Well encompasses half of a city block and is a wonderful place to relax or enjoy all the fun and quirkiness of Gulfport! Located in the Art District in Gulfport it is steps to the coffee shops, art shops, restaurants, beach bars and beach.
Gulfport is small city on the west coast of Florida with a wonderful 'Old Florida' feel. Take in a baseball game, deep sea fishing, sailing or or see the many art galleries and shopping in neighboring St Pete. Make sure you visit Ft. Desoto Park. It is a 350 acre park on the beach. It has been voted one of the most beautiful beaches in the US and is truly magical at sunrise and sunset. The park is just a short drive from Gulfport.
