About Beth Sexworth

Currently living in Austin, Texas, recently transplanted from Scottsdale. I oversee the investments of a family foundation and lead nature photography workshops.

Why Beth Sexworth chose St Petersburg Area

It was literally love at first site. Flamingo Cottage and Palm Cottage are located on the same lot and I found them both while driving around the neighborhood on a business trip.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for letting us use the cottage. We really enjoyed it. Plus the area was amazing. I had penty of quiet to recover from surgery and plenty of places to walk to. The beaches are beautiful here. We will be back in February 2013 for my three month check up. I will look you up to see if it is available.

This was my second stay at the cottage, and I absolutely love it. Close to everything I needed, comfortable, quiet, and in a gem of a place (Gulfport). So much better than a hotel!

great cozy breezy oasis in a mellow town

  • 5 of 5

The small touches have turned this small cottage into a very up to date functional home away from home.beautiful tile...nicely stocked kitchen...outdoor seating surrounded by palms and plantings. And there's a nice on demand cable package for chilling out after a day in the sun.

Reviewer Comments:

Loved this place. Walking distance to lots to do, great food and beach. Only had 2 very minor issues which I'm sure will be taken of, ( had to put something under coffee pot for it to percolate and lamp chain off in bedroom). Was just as presented and we were very happy with it.

Reviewer Comments:

The cottage was roomy enough and very clean. Owner extremely helpful and accommodating. I enjoyed the advantage of a full kitchen in addition to the wonderful restaurants in Gulfport. My favorite restaurant discovered was Mangia Gourmet as it also caters to those who are gluten free and vegan. Even if you are not following one of these eating plans, the food, bakery items, atmosphere and welcoming servers are amazing. One block from the beach and a couple blocks to the main street full of shops and restaurants. Extremely quiet neighborhood. First Friday and third Saturday are the Gulfport art walks. Great location to St. Pete beach, Fort De Soto Park, downtown St. Pete.

Reviewer Comments:

My husband and I rented Flamingo Cottage for the entire month of January 2016. We found the cottage to be **** and span and ready for our arrival. We love the property (yard, patio) which is well maintained. We found the appliances clean and in good working order. The gas grill was in good shape. Plenty of storage, good size bedroom. The only down side is the small bathroom and shower. One advantage of this rental is having direct access to the laundry room. The location is perfect, a block from the beach and Gulfport Recreation Center and is just a few blocks from Beach Blvd. and the casino. This was the second time we rented this property and would consider renting again. Also pet friendly. Also has Wi-Fi, and 2 flat screen tvs.
