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.

Reviewer Comments:

The Flamingo Cottage is a wonderful little place in an awesome location. It's modern, comfortable and nicely decorated and outfitted with the best small gourmet kitchen around. If you're staying for a bit longer term you'll be happy to know it's equipped so well you can cook anything/everything. The manager was great; super quick to respond to any questions and very helpful. Absolutely a fabulous place to chill out!

Everything two people needed to spend a week in Florida. Close to the beach, close to shops and restaurants, short drive to downtown. Gulfport is a great little community with lots going on. We would definitely stay there again.

Owner's Response: Thank you Steve! And just to clarify, it is a short drive to downtown St Petersburg. "Downtown" Gulfport can be reached via a 3-block walk!

The online photos depict the unit very well. It was very clean and provided everything we needed for our stay. The owners were very accommodating. The cottage is a short walk to several restaurants and an easy drive to a host of beaches, shops and more! Would recommend for someone not wanting to stay right within the hustle and bustle and looking for more of a neighborhood feel.

To anyone who is looking to get some r and r in Gulfport and not have to do a lot of driving and would prefer to be in a neighborhood with quick and easy, walkable access to restaurants, sports bars, the library and beach, THIS is IT!... Beth's Flamingo Cottage is perfect for two people and maybe one or two kids. If you're going in a family group nearby adjoining properties are also available. We certainly enjoyed our stay. The cottage is exactly as shown and there is a cozy garden at the back with a gas grill and full laundry. Beth is readily available via phone for any questions or concerns. Reserve your spot here now. You will love it and will always return..just pls leave space for me when I would like to visit ??...

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!
