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.

Reviewer Comments:

Weather was very warm,almost uncomfortable. Not real impressed with location. House was clean, tastefully decorated. Had trouble with air conditioning and television. Both were taken care of in a timely matter,but took one afternoon. Front porch needs some work. Enjoyed the Farmer's Market. Water front park was torn up making it unable to use. Would rather have tried a different location.

Owner's Response: Summers are definitely warm in Florida! The TV cable box needed to be reset during their stay. Instructions for doing this were provided with the arrival email and really just involve unplugging the box, waiting a few minutes, plugging it back in and waiting while it counts down and resets. Nevertheless we sent someone to the house to do this. I do not remember what the problem with the AC was, but we did have a repairman there within 2 hours of her reporting that it was getting warm inside. Guests do not have to be there during a service call like that, but they chose to stay. I know this was a big trip for them both as they don't vacation very often, had never stayed in a vacation rental before and had recently lost a loved one. I know expectations were high and we are sorry that the trip did not meet those expectations.

Reviewer Comments:

This rental was perfect. It was spacious and the furniture and beds were very comfortable. It was really clean and yet had no bleach or cleaner smell at all, which we loved. The location was ideal, just a little walk down the block to the water, and then we were delighted to find a huge farmer's market down the street on Tuesday! Everything was provided for and the entire stay was wonderful. There was even HBO for entertainment. Thank you, Beth, for your professionalism and sharing this beautiful, little home with us for the week.
