About Paula Fenzau

I'm originally from Chicago, been married to a wonderful guy for 20 years. We love to go sailing, restore houses and show people our beautiful quirky beach town. Also have to mention that I am an avid hockey fan!

Paula Fenzau purchased this bungalow in 2004

Why Paula Fenzau chose St Petersburg Area

We bought this property in 2004 and have been restoring it with the intention of recreating the beach camp that this property was back in 1939. At some point in its history the property became known as The Wishing Well. The renovation has truly been a labor of love. Each house has been beautifully renovated with its own unique features.

The Wishing Well encompasses half of a city block and is a wonderful place to relax or enjoy all the fun and quirkiness of Gulfport! Located in the Art District in Gulfport it is steps to the coffee shops, art shops, restaurants, beach bars and beach.

What makes this bungalow unique

Gulfport is small city on the west coast of Florida with a wonderful 'Old Florida' feel. Take in a baseball game, deep sea fishing, sailing or or see the many art galleries and shopping in neighboring St Pete. Make sure you visit Ft. Desoto Park. It is a 350 acre park on the beach. It has been voted one of the most beautiful beaches in the US and is truly magical at sunrise and sunset. The park is just a short drive from Gulfport.

This Rental Has Everything!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time exploring the St Pete area. Gulfport is a charming, artsy town. This rental is walking distance to restaurants and shops, and a short drive to some of the most spectacular top 10 beaches in FL like Pass-a-Grille and Fort De Soto. Also close to downtown St Petersburg. What I was most impressed with is how clean it was and that it really was fully equipped, right down to paper products in the kitchen/bath, appliances, towels, linens, wine opener, dishes, cooler, beach chairs, etc etc etc. We had a great stay here!

Loved Our Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Paula and Alex are wonderful host, attentive to their guests needs. The Blue Cottage had everything we needed for our three week stay in fabulous Gulfport. They provided plenty of everything (towels, sheets etc) Anyone that travels with their dog knows how difficult it is to find a house or condo that is clean and dog friendly. Our 60 lb fur baby was very happy and relaxed here. We can't say enough about this blue gem. If we are lucky we'll get the chance to be back!
