This beautiful cottage was completely renovated with comfort and relaxation in mind. It is located in the Art District in Gulfport Florida which is within the Waterfront District.

All of the shops, restaurants and Gulfport's beach are within a short walk of this cottage. This cottage has a lovely front porch for enjoying the Key West style atmosphere. We have a couple of bicycles at the property for guests to use to ride around town and a couple of kayaks as well. There is also a large courtyard with a gazebo and gas grille for the enjoyment of guests.
All of Gulfport is within walking or biking distance of the cottage. St. Petersburg with its museums and shopping is just a short 7 minute car ride. Ft. Desoto Park is also a 7 minute car ride.
This is a beautiful place in a great little beach town. Come once you will be back again and again. This is the kind of town you only tell your good friends about, lest it get spoiled. Come visit a real Florida beach town...

David Ambler purchased this Cottage in 2004
Why David Ambler chose Saint Petersburg
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 as it does have a wishing well on the property. 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 Cottage 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 U.S. and is truly magical at sunrise and sunset. The park is just a short drive from Gulfport.

Cozy Cottage in the Heart of Gulfport
I was just taking a couple of days for a little staycation from Tampa. This place was ideal for me and the pup. Just parked the car and was able to walk to see all the local sights and take in the restaurants and bars and the Tuesday street market. The cottage is as-advertised. It is well-stocked and pretty comfortable. I'll certainly consider it next time I decide to stay in Gulfport.
Beautiful property. Great place to stay.
We greatly enjoyed our stay in Gulfport. The town is great and very welcoming. Our stay would not have been the same without Paula. She went above and beyond to ensure that we were comfortable and enjoying ourselves. She went out of her way to provide us with anything we may have needed. Would definitely stay again and recommend to others.
We were thrilled at the quaintness of Paula's Gulfport Cottage. It looked great online which is why we booked initially and were so thrilled when we arrived as it was even better than expected.
Fabulous hosts who have thought of everything we could have possibly needed for our 7-night stay in their charming property!
A Wonderful Cottage!
My husband, 4yo son and I really enjoyed our stay at the Wishing Well Cottage in Gulfport. What a unique and eclectic town Gulfport is! This cottage is only a block from the main strip, which is full of interesting shops and fun restaurants; about three blocks to the pier and Gulfport's beach. Also, Gulfport is a perfect location for exploring the entire TPA/St Pete area - equidistant to everything! Upon arrival, our hostess Paula could not have been more friendly, informative, and helpful. The cottage is so very clean! It is nicely updated and the tile work is beautiful throughout! We'll recommend this property to all our friends!
