Guestbook comments from the manager

Madison: I spent a long, interesting week with friends. This house was a great find and I am thankful to have come along with my friends. We went to clubs, the beach, the boardwalk. Spent a lot of time outside and loved the ceramic duck in the beautiful backyard. I would come back to this house and St Pete anytime.



Rory: Very comfortable and peaceful neighborhood. Had a great stay! I would definitely come back!



Micah: Had an amazing time there with all my friends. A beautiful house with beautiful landscaping. Definitely would come again. Thanks for being so great!



Danny: Enjoyed himself!

Do Not Stay

  • 1 of 5

This "nice" bungalow is not as advertised. It is old, smelly with dirty furniture. It is located in an undesirable area. Check out the Pinellas County Crime website before you book your stay. We walked in and walked out. Do not waste your money

Reviewer Comments:

Harbor Mist is a wonderful cottage with everything you could ever need and then some!!! Stayed here many times in the past and while driving down, I said "The only thing Harbor Mist needs,to be perfect, is a hammock!" We arrived, looked out at the deck, and there was a hammock!!! Beth and crew are awesome! Stayed at her properties for years now and can't imagine staying anywhere else. Gulfport is fun- great restaurants, cool Artwalk, lovely views! Dog friendly house and town and a great dog beach at Fort DeSoto! Thanks for another perfect stay Beth!!!!!!

Reviewer Comments:

We picked this location because it was centrally located to the areas we wanted to spend time in. Gulfport is a very unique town, with lots to do. The restaurant recommendations were spot on. We enjoyed our time in the area and liked being able to come back later in the day and relax at the house. The house was very clean when we arrived. We would recommend to anyone looking for a great location in this part of Florida.

I was nervous because we usually stay in a hotel and hadn't yet done a VRBO. But, we were so pleasantly pleased with everything.

Reviewer Comments:

We were pleasantly surprised with the little bungalow. It was nicely furnished, comfortable, clean, the kitchen was well furnished with everything you could use; we enjoyed the large screen tv (it lost signal a few times but came back on after a few minutes); the mattress in the master bedroom was very comfy; we enjoyed the keyless front door entry - didn't have to fuss with keys; the back yard was a little smaller than it looked on the photo but was still good for our dog; the backyard was very plushly landscaped with large palms, rubber trees, ferns, a little pond with plants and lots of other plants to look at; the grill was nicer than ours at home and we used it a few times. We were happy with the bungalow and would recommend it to friends or relatives.
