Just outside of the second bath is an office nook with a computer readily available for surfing the web or playing video games.

This lovely home comes with several outdoor spaces to enjoy the tropical Florida climate. In addition to the covered dining porch off the kitchen and dining area, you can gather to have a lemonade on the cozy front porch OR relax in the chaise lounge chairs in the large private backyard with lush tropical landscape.

Just a short drive to downtown Saint Petersburg with its fine museums and waterfront and the beaches of Saint Petersburg, Gulfport is a very walkable area and no car is needed to get around in the immediate area.

Other amenities include: broadband wifi internet access, inside washer and dryer, outdoor furniture and dining table, one-car garage with plenty of room for parking for additional cars in the driveway.

Why Christine Generalli chose Gulfport

We love the Gulfport area and decided to build a new home to capture the charm of vintage bungalows with the modern amenities of a new home. We are thrilled with the way it turned out!

Guestbook comments from the owner

An unusual series of events led me to this house but the results have been extraordinary. The house is lovely, well designed and my favorite feature is the light over the dining table. Being able to walk to 'the action' in Gulfport was my #1 criteria and this house is in the perfect location. It is also a quick drive to beaches and St. Petersburg, Sarasota, Ft. Desoto, etc. This has turned out to be a month long girls' slumber party with most of the fun happening during the day!! I have had friends visit from Kansas City, Oklahoma, Phoenix and North Carolina. Everyone was charmed by the town, Stella's, Pia's, O'Maddy's etc. & of course BoTiki (just ask for Grace). I hope to be here next year for more exploration and fun.

Beautiful and cozy home in a great area!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Gulfport over Christmas. Local friends and family stopped by and were equally impressed with the house, it's decor, and how cozy it felt. We all felt so at home... That is the most I could ask for! Thank you. Happy New Year!!

Repeat Customer still loving it!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this property — this time for a month and it was wonderful just like the first time last year! It’s a “smart” home with all the conveniences and accessories that we could ask for. Close to the shopping and restaurant area of Gulfport in a quiet residential neighborhood, minutes from the beach and from Clam Bayou so you don’t need to drive if you don’t want to. Minutes away from multiple nature preserves and beaches where we love to spend our time enjoying the Florida weather, flora and fauna. The owners are very responsive and we would highly recommend staying at their property.

Best VRBO I've ever stayed at!

  • 5 of 5

As soon as you walk up to the massive red door of this gem, you'll know you made the right choice.

I knew I was renting a new house, but the photos just don't do it justice. It was much larger than I expected, and the yard is magnificent. The professional decorating and landscaping are perfect and high end, which speaks to the owner's investment and commitment to the home. Christine was very responsive to all my questions, and there were several personal touches I've not seen at other rentals. I've thought about purchasing a vacation home for my own family and as an investment--I would surely use this experience as a model for how things "should be done".

The home had everything I needed, and some extras! It was great to have beach gear, especially the cart and beach blankets. My kids absolutely loved trying to catch lizards around the home and neighborhood. And of course they loved Jeffrey the cat. I'd recommend keeping tiny ones from getting too close to the cat though. The poor guy showed up one morning looking like he had gotten in a bar fight the night before, and he was much less tolerant of my toddler's "affection". He has certainly adopted the house, and any visiting occupants, as his own. :) It's quite adorable.

A wonderful location with easy access to many points of interest. We hit the big beaches, John's Pass, Sunken Gardens, Children's Museum, and watched my in-laws (Dr. Blues & Liz Pennock) perform at The Hanger in the St. Pete airport. I'm hoping my next visit will coincide with either a First Friday or Third Saturday when all the artists are showcasing their wares in Gulfport.

Thanks so much for the hospitality! Kristen, Drew, Jackson, Julie, and Greyson

Perfect location - beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

Home was very cozy, comfortable and welcoming. We won't be booking hotels for vacations anymore - a home away from home is the way to go.

Beautiful house for the perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house. 2 adults and 4 kids fitted perfectly.

Very clean and well organized with everything you need for your stay. Tastefully decorated.

One of the very best VRBO properties we have stayed at. Highly recommend.

If you time permits, take a day trip to Egmont Key via the little ferry/boat. Bring food and plenty of water. Pristine beaches and very few people.
