Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 6

Just like the town of Gulfport itself, Palm Cottage blends the beloved charm of Old Florida with modern comfort and convenience. Follow the brick pathway past lush gardens and palms to the front porch of this 2BR, 1BA rental—a vintage-inspired hideaway complete with original pecan wood floors and floods of natural light.

Come discover a lush haven within walking distance of the beach, where mature palms and large oak trees shade a grassy yard and tropical shrubs and flowers add a splash of color.

Palm Cottage is one of three rentals on this property, but you’ll never feel crowded by your neighbors. Bring your four-legged family member along—pups are welcomed and well-loved at our retreat.

A DAY AT PALM COTTAGE

Sunlight and seashore spirit will greet you when you awake. An ocean-hued master suite features a queen-size bed and flat-screen TV, plus a closet, chest of drawers and dressing table to keep you looking your best throughout your stay. The adjacent palm tree-themed guest bedroom has a full-size bed and armoire.

Steps away from both is the recently remodeled bathroom. Refresh with a walk-in shower with pristine subway tile, and get ready for the day ahead at a large granite vanity.

Take your morning cup of coffee to the enclosed sun porch, where you can gaze across the hedges and lawn to a sleepy street. Or flip pancakes and crack eggs in the kitchen—featuring a full suite of new stainless steel appliances and all the cookware and silverware you’ll need—then feast at an elegant wooden dining space for four.

The open design of our gathering space makes it ideal for intimate get-togethers. Serve snacks on the kitchen bar while the group sips wine in a comfortable living room with charming rattan furniture and bold, Floridian patterns. Or set up dessert in the dining room while enjoying your favorite flick on the flat-screen TV in the living space.

A string-lit patio with gas BBQ sets the scene for memorable dinners at home. Grill up your favorites and savor them at the shaded table for four, surrounded by tropical fauna.

LIFE ON THE WATER

Gulfport’s Waterfront District is something special, and at Palm Cottage, you’re in the heart of it. Just three houses away from the beach, you’ll feel the breezes and see the 4th of July fireworks right from our front yard. No busy streets stand between your front door and the warm sands.

There’s almost always something happening in this charming old school community—from art walks to farmers’ markets, sailing regatta to sandcastle contests. And when there’s not, a vibrant dining scene and easy access to the 38-mile Pinellas bike trail lets you create your own excitement.

We make it easy to see the sights with complimentary bike rentals. Just sign a waiver and get exploring.

Yard is not completely fenced.

Reviewer Comments:

The cottage itself was great as usual. However, the road construction for the entire time really affected our stay. It was noisy, dirty and dusty, We were unable to park on the property and the workers were constantly flooding the streets. We realize that this was not the fault of the owner as she was as surprised as we were. It was just unfortunate timing. Loved the new appliances and bedroom decor.

We stayed three nights with our dog. Very clean and welcoming. Everything you could need in the kitchen. Very friendly area, one block from town, and great walks along the water. Dog friendly town too. Nice art fair in town on Tuesdays. Nice to be away from all the traffic and simply walk.

We couldn't have been happier with our accommodations. Palm Cottage is cozy and inviting. It also is perfectly located, being only one block away from the bay and another block to great restaurants. The owner answered our questions quickly.

The Palm Cottage is a wonderful home in which to spend a weekend or a few months. It's nicely decorated, updated, has beautiful old wood floors and is 1 block from the bay and all the restaurants/shops in the awesome, quaint beach town of Gulfport.

Reviewer Comments:

Our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 kids under 6) absolutely loved the Palm Cottage. It was cozy, quaint and well laid out. The screened in front room/porch became our hang-out spot. The landscaping was totally FL, including palm trees and a beautiful walkway. The location was perfect, as it's only about 2 blocks away to the water, the pier, a playground and little downtown Gulfport. Gulfport itself is perfectly walkable, and includes several amazing restaurants, shops, coffee shops, and bars, as well as practical businesses like a dog groomer, hair salon and mini-mart.
