About Stuart Pollack

Why Stuart Pollack chose St Petersburg Area

I love this area and enjoy having a beautiful cottage to share with new and old friends. You will love this cottage and want to return every year.

What makes this cottage unique

The charm of this beach cottage is why I chose to purchase this property. When you walk in you will feel like you are at the beach and your vacation has begun.

Great stay - House Exceeded all expectations

  • 5 of 5

The house was more than fully equipped, clean and well maintained. 2 bicycles, BBQ gril, modern kitchen, screened back porch, wide screen tv, WiFi etc etc. Location is also ideal, just 1-2 blocks from shopping and restaurants and waterfront. We will definitely be back!

We had an absolutely wonderful stay here Dr. Stuart's home. The cottage is adorable and it is true that everything is of high quality and in a beachy theme, which is what was perfect for getting us in the mood of "vacation". The backyard and off-street parking was great, as was the fenced in back yard for our small dog! We were able to see fireworks right from the backyard! The town is pretty sleepy during the day, but in the evenings several restaurants to try out. The beach is a few blocks away, but I would not recommend it at all for swimming... but.. St. Pete's and others are literally about a 5-7 minute drive, and we absolutely didn't care... it was so wonderful.

We tried hard to make sure the cottage was as great when we left as when we found it because we were so grateful to have such a clean and affordable place.... it was a memory for us that we are trying to see if we can even match this year! Thanks again so much!

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

This property is in the perfect location for anyone visiting Gulfport or any nearby areas. It is located within a 5 minute walking distance from the beach, Main street and a wide variety of restaurants appealing to numerous tastes. Stella's on main street was our favorite for local color and an excellent breakfast. The house itself is very well equipped with all the things that make vacations enjoyable including beach towels, chairs and even two cruiser bikes. Thee is easy access to an excellent bike bath which we rode to Dunedin.The beach itself has several piers as well as the Gulfport Casino which has a wide variety of dance nights and excellent views of the gulf. Lots of activities are available on Main street such as Art walks and live music along the street and at various restaurants. This house is an excellent place to stay weather you want to stay in Gulfport, or to visit many other places in the area.

What's not to like?

  • 5 of 5

We were 4 people (two college age teens) who totally enjoyed this house for 5 nights. The home is lovely. It is updated, tastefully furnished, very clean, and the linens are high quality. 900 square feet never seemed bigger, because the large screened porch acts as an extra room. You can cook a meal (we had Thanksgiving dinner on the porch), or walk just a short distance to the charming town center to a restaurant and shops. We took advantage of the two bikes that were provided and found Gulfport to be a low traffic area that lends itself to a pretty ride. (These are beach bikes, so don't plan a 50 mile ride.) It's an easy drive to whatever else you may want; shopping, larger beaches, etc. There are air conditioners, but we preferred the opened windows and ceiling fans this time of year. The owner was very accommodating and helpful; don't hesitate to stay here.

The Perfect Gulfport Fl. Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My sister-in-law and I booked this for a long weekend in the Gulfport area where we have family. Stuart was so helpful with information and made the reservation process quick and easy. From the moment we arrived we felt at home. The cottage has been beautifully redone and includes everything you could possibly need no matter how long or short your stay. The linen closet was full of luxury towels(including beach towels), the kitchen had every dish, glass, pot and pan imaginable. There were even bikes and beach chairs. The location was perfect as well. Everyday we where able to walk to the pier, restaurants and shops. All in all it was just a great cottage in the perfect location. A big Thank You to Stuart for sharing this gem with us.

Absolutely beautiful cottage stocked with everything you may need and more. Extremely comfortable, quiet street and neighborhood, walking distance to all the sights and restaurants. We particularly enjoyed having coffee on the porch in the mornings, and evenings out front with a glass of wine. Highly recommend this lovely and comfortable cottage! Thank you Dr. Stu, especially for the coffee!
