Originally from Washington, DC, I've worn many hats, and have lived on four continents. I moved to Florida after the last overseas destination and love the beautiful weather and friendly people that I have come to know here in the Tampa Bay area.

I am a therapist, certified in Bhakti massage, Watsu aquatic therapy, Qigong, Reiki energybody work, addiction recovery and support and recently certified in raw food nutritional healing. I practice at this studio address as well as travel nationally and internationally.

Guests booking accommodations at the Serendipity Guesthouse and The Sanctuary can avail themselves of these healing/spa modalities or be completely separate per their preference. Level of interaction with owner is totally open and optional.

I love living in Florida, it's like always being on vacation! I enjoy travel as well, and having Gulfport as a base is safe, easy and totally comfortable!

Being able to walk or bike to everything is such a gift for me in this age of driving to everywhere. Gulfport is walk/bicycle/golfcart friendly and there are many opportunities for exercise and outdoor fun. Gulfport beach offers sunbathing, swimming, kayaking, gatherings such as karoke and Bocci ball, the Gulfport Casino has a world class floating dance floor and offers ballroom, tango, swing and salsa classes every week for nominal fees. There are also artwalks, festivals and special events including movies, concerts, 5Ks, community theatre, etc.

People are very friendly and the 'feel' of Gulfport is one of accepting and eclectic, an all inclusive welcoming type of approach to lifestyle.

I love doing Tai Chi on the beach at sunrise, or walking under the moon at night....occasionally you will see a beautiful bird or a large manatee or dolphin gracing the waters of Boca Ciega Bay.

We loved the Serendipity House and the village of Gulfport! The Serendipity House is adorable and beautifully maintained. Exploring on bikes is the best way to see the village. We just dropped our son off at Stetson Law School and are looking forward to returning over the next 3 years. Thanks so much!

What a lovely surprise met my eyes when I stepped in this apartment. It is so comfortable and very clean. You have done a great job making this apartment homey. I love it. I'm so glad my daughter brought me here to bring back memories of when I lived here in Gulfport almost 50 years ago!

Cathy, I am so glad to have found your home online. The location is ideal and we had a great time reacquainting our Mom to St Pete and Gulfport.

Your place is peaceful and very relaxing after a long drive from the state of Washington!

We loved Serendipity House. We will definitely make this a part of our annual Florida visit. You have everything we need and Rainer loved his massage. Nor sure if he used the bike or not! Dinner and breakfast in Gulfport were walkable from here!

Really enjoyed our stay at your place. It was a little strange staying a block from our house but nice at the same time. We love Gulfport and got to eat at some of our favorite places, attend a Lion's Club meeting with our former members and visit our favorite beach over at Caddy's.

Your place is lovely, thank you! Glad Rob did his research and we didn't stay at some hotel!

Cathy, We had a lovely time. We were able to enjoy some downtime and still enjoy the sights. Our little dog loved the dog beach! We hope to enjoy another visit sometimes in the near future!
