About the property

1 Bedroom, 1.5 Baths, Sleeps 4

Spacious, private second-story apartment with wood floors and 12 windows!

1-bedroom, 1-bath styled in casual island style and in a secluded location in the heart of Gulfport's Beach & Art District.

Enter the home via the sunporch. The kitchen is at the back of the property with built-in hutch with glass doors, full-size refrigerator, full-size stove, microwave and separate eating area. Two windows over the sink for plenty of light.

The living room has 4 tall windows with beautiful woodwork. Ceiling fan, amoire, HDTV with cable and music channels. Large sofa makes into a queen sleeper. Loveseat, chair and desk.

The bedroom has 3 windows, a large walk-in closet, two dressers, two nightstands, HDTV and a king bed.

The French doors separate the living room and bedroom. The airy, updated bath has a generous walk-in tile shower.

Movies and books are yours to enjoy during your stay.

Microwave, coffee pot, mixer and many, many more kitchen amenities and gadgets provided.

All kitchen, bath and bed linens provided.

The blue-green-grey kitchen compliments the tropical Bamboo Stalk green covering the living room and bedroom walls. Wicker and rattan furnishings create lush, tropical beach surroundings. All rooms are well-lit and have ceiling fans along with views outdoors.

Central heat and air-conditioning.

Outdoors is a gas grill, Bistro table and chairs as well as Adirondak chairs for relaxing and an umbrella.

Also downstairs is the laundry room with a half bath and private, off-street parking for two cars.

Accommodations are upstairs, with the bottom space used only for storage and the laundry.

Location: Just one and a half blocks from Williams Pier and sunny Gulfport Beach, this lushly landscaped and lit property is private and quiet, yet ideally located in the heart of it all. Come and watch the dolphins play, or the egrets and herons fish. Listen to the call of seagulls or the wild green parrots that frequent the neighborhood.

Located just a short 2 blocks away are restaurants and shops, one of which even has the local post office inside! Gulfport's library is but a few blocks away and if you feel like shopping you can take the City bus service to Tyrone Mall. It stops just two blocks from The Sand Dollar. Try your hand (or feet!) at salsa or ballroom dancing at the converted Gulfport Casino. And still another attraction is Hickman's Theatre, with live plays. Regardless of the time of year you come to visit, you'll find something exciting and fun to do. Weekly farmer's market. Car recommended.

Golf, tennis, kayaking, swimming and biking are all easily accessible from The Sand Dollar. A perfect location for

your Florida vacation!

We keep coming back to the Sand Dollar. It's the perfect place for the two of us and our dog. Bright and airy, private fenced back yard. Only a block from the water front and from the downtown area. Art walks, Fresh Markets, cute restaurants and coffee places. Fully furnished, everything you need in the kitchen and laundry room. Always clean when we arrive, owners are so friendly and willing to do what ever we need to make our stay perfect - great customer service. A+ rental!

Just returned from a month long stay in Gulfport at the Sand Dollar. It was just about perfect. The apartment was spotless, well appointed, quiet and in a great location. Would recommend it highly to anyone looking for a laid back, Old Florida vacation.
