Guestbook Comment

  • 5 of 5

We stumbled across Seascape on the internet, made a reservation, and thoroughly enjoyed our week in Gulfport. Minutes away from just about everything Florida has to offer, this quaint neighborhood is like Florida used to be, but rarely is anymore, and Seascape is an important part of that offer. Don't miss a stay in a bit of historical Florida, in a historic home. You won't regret it. We loved it so much, we did a virtual tour for Suzanne, be sure to ask to see it.

Better Than The Pictures

  • 5 of 5

Your pictures don't do your property justice. We did not realize all the beautiful yards you have. The landscaping is beautifully cared for. Buddy had plenty of romping space. We loved being able to take Buddy on walks into the little town. The restaurants were all dog friendly and fun! What a great town. What a great house. Please let us know again about next January as soon as you decide.

What a neat property, what a neat town

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to spend a few months!

We were lucky enough to rent this from Lenny & Suzanne for July & August 2015.

The house and Gulfport is a hidden gem. We couldn't have asked for more. Comfortable house, pet friendly, neat town, great restaurants.

We were able to explore the whole St. Petersberg's area during our time here and enjoyed every minute

We would highly recommend this house!

Magnifique maison pour des vacances en famille.

  • 5 of 5

C’était la première fois que nous réservions une maison via VRBO et nous avons adoré notre expérience. La maison est très soigneusement entretenue, propre et le produit est fidèle aux photos présentées sur le site.

Nous n’avons manqué d’absolument rien. Il y avait même des vélos disponibles dans le garage pour profiter du magnifique bord de mer. Pour les familles voyageant avec de jeunes enfants, il y a une foule de jouets à la disposition des occupants et le terrain clôturé est parfait pour les enfants ou animaux de compagnies. Il y plusieurs restaurants et boutiques à distance de marche. Nous avons adoré l’emplacement et la petite ville de Gulfport. Nous serons très certainement de retour et recommandons la Seascape Cottage à tout le monde désirant s’évader sous le chaud soleil de la Floride.

What a cute little cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is as cute as can be! It's got a great floor plan, location and grounds. The large living room area opens into the kitchen and dining area nicely, allowing people to be together. The location is perfect for all things Gulfport! It's within an easy walk or bike ride to the downtown district with its excellent shops, restaurants and twice weekly outdoor market. And, the house has a view of the harbor! What a find!
