About Beth Sexworth

Traveler, photographer, host

Why Beth Sexworth chose St Petersburg Area

Dolphin House has a wonderfully open and comfortable feel. Each room has lots of windows, the floor plan and fantastic and the location in was everything we were looking for. I had been traveling to the area for several years and purchased Palm Cottage in 2002 while kicking around at open houses after a business trip. Dolphin House came on the market the next year, and we had the opportunity to purchase it and The Sand Dollar at the same time. While separate by a fence and gate, the two properties can be rented together to accommodate groups of 8-10.

Gulfport is a lovely community, without strip malls and high-rises, so that it actually feels like home every time we arrive. There are tons of local events throughout the year - a little something for everyone. You can walk most anywhere you need to in the Gulfport area - to the beach, to the Art Village, to the dog park, to the library, to the Casino, to many restaurants and live music venues and to the pier and Veteran's memorial park. Easy access to the Pinellas Trail and you can travel for miles up the Florida west coast.

What makes this house unique

We really love the design of the home. There are two separate living areas, so there's more than one place to relax and gather outside of the bedrooms. The split floor plan - with two bedrooms, one bath and one living area in the front and one bedroom, one bath and the second living area in the back - make it perfect for families or couples. You can stay under one room yet have a little separation and privacy. The front of the house can actually be closed off from the kitchen via a pocket door, and there are double French doors between the other side of the kitchen and the back living area & dining that may be closed as well. There are several large windows along the side of the house along the kitchen and dining area that look into the tropically landscaped sideyard and path. I love to open the blinds and feel that I have brought the outdoors in, no matter the weather. The entire house has tile floors which feel fantastic on bare feet in the summer, and each of the bedrooms is generously sized. There's a nice covered porch in the back with patio seating, plus a patio table off the porch on the pavers, for outside dining. We just love it!

Reviewer Comments:

We had a lovely time at Dolphin House and found the accommodations, especially the split floor plan, perfect for 6 adults and an infant so there was separation during the baby's fussy period during the night. We had no complaints, other than the noisiness of the AC compressor outside the master bedroom that was a little distracting when I went to read for a while in the beautiful back yard. The location was also perfect for attending a family wedding at the Gulfport Casino.

Owner's Response: Thank you Doris and we are so sorry about the compressor. The problem with the AC noise has been fixed, hopefully at least for the next 10 years or so as we put in an entirely new Trane heat pump system 3 days ago. It was a little touch and go during your stay! Beth

Reviewer Comments:

My family of 4 came to GulfPort for a short, 2-day getaway to visit a friend. We were thrilled with the layout of the home and how roomy it was. Our teens practically had half of the house to themselves and my husband and I had the other half! The home, however, is very open and flows well. It was easy to move about and move in and out. We already want to come back and will absolutely want to book this particular property. On the last night we had an issue and the management was SUPER responsive. We ended up not needing their solution but appreciated their attention and solution. We absolutely love Gulf Port! We walked to the tennis courts at the park there, walked to restaurants, enjoyed the Tuesday Market, walked to the pier, rode our bikes and explored the neighborhood (and stopped for ice cream), and had a short drive to the beaches. Fantastic location. Very cool neighborhood. We would never get a hotel after this vacation!

Reviewer Comments:

Arrived the day after a Hurricane so unsure about what to expect but the house was very impressive and had plenty of room. Kitchen was a little dated but had everything that was needed. Local to the town and the beach ( unfortunately that was shut to the effects of the Hurricane )and easy enough to travel around to get to the sights. Overall happy

Owner's Response: Thanks Tim! The kitchen is halfway through a remodel, with one side completely new (new cabinets, new counters, new refrigerator) and the other half with the original cabinets but all updated appliances. Stay tuned for the full reveal!
