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.
