From the moment you step into this cheerful, tropical 1BR, 1BA getaway, you’ll be whisked away from the hustle and bustle of the everyday. Leave chilly mornings and hum-drum afternoons behind for a romantic retreat in balmy Gulfport, where the charms of Old Florida meet world-class dining, art, and welcoming community.
On the grounds of Flamingo Cottage, you’ll wander among palm trees and venerable oaks, tropical flora and lush green grass. Enjoy sunrises and twilight cocktails on your intimate private patio. Bring your four-legged family members to this pet-friendly haven, where they can run free in the expansive yard.
And when you're ready to dip your toes in the waters, Flamingo Cottage is just a short walk from the beaches and parks of Gulfport’s waterfront.
A DAY AT FLAMINGO COTTAGE
Open your eyes to a tranquil master bedroom. Touches of muted tropical flair offer hints of the paradise outdoors: palm leaf patterns decorate the walls and plush queen bed. Spend a relaxed morning in bed and flip on the HDTV to catch up on morning talk shows.
Sip your coffee on the patio as you map out your day of beachside strolls and gallery visits, then head into the kitchen to whip up a hearty breakfast. With custom cocoa cabinets, Peacock granite counters, and updated appliances, you’ll find an elegant space that will stand up to any recipe. Enjoy a leisurely breakfast at the intimate dining table.
After an active morning on the town, cool off in the A/C of your tropical living room, decorated with signature pops of lime and flamingo pink. Curl up on the sofa and watch your favorite shows on the HDTV, equipped with a DVD player, cable, and iHome.
Off the kitchen, you’ll find a full bath with echoes of the ocean: pebble stone floors, walk-in shower with sea-grey tile, and palm-tree wallpaper offer a restful retreat.
