About Jimmy Brattain

Award wining custom home builder born in Tampa, raised in Carmel Indiana.

Jimmy Brattain purchased this villa in 2012

Why Jimmy Brattain chose St Petersburg Area

Mr. Brattain purchased this 1938 duplex situated on a double lot with the thought of scraping the structure in order to build two new homes for re-sale but quickly broke his golden rule and that was falling in love with the property. What started off as an estimated 6 month project has turned into a 2 and a half year labor of intense love. The estimated total completion of Mr. Brattain's vision is early 2016 by adding a fire pit and swimming pool.

Part of the décor is inspired by long nights as child watching old movies with his departed grandmother and other spaces, by the initials of his grandfather, RL. The only example of residential art deco architectural to remain in Gulfport, was saved by a passion to remember two very wonderful people... And as a result, those travelers fortunate enough to stumble across this gem, will see first hand what love can create.

What makes this villa unique

In ground swimming pool shared by both units, each unit has a private courtyard, parking for two vehicles

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Sunny Days is the perfect place, it's clean, comfortable and close to so much. We rented the space when we came down to visit USF in Tampa and I am SO glad we stayed in Gulfport. We were able to walk just a few blocks over the Beach Blvd and eat, we walked down to Shoreline and saw Tampa bay... we rode the bikes to Clam Bayou and over to the little golf course that had a great biking/walking trail. Jimmy was a very responsive host and has everything you need... we locked ourselves out, must not have been the first, and he has a spare key near by. Plenty of towels, the beds were great, and the space was just beautiful... if we ever come back, I would stay here again and again!!

FIRST CLASS!!! PERFECT!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place is fantastic! I can't wait to go back. I brought my 72 year old mother with me and she loved it as well. She wanted to move right in. The home is so comfortable, beautifully decorated, very private and the pool is such an extra added bonus! I just can't say enough about this place. Jimmy was very attentive to our needs and went over and beyond to make us feel special. The location is also just perfect. I have a 14 year old lab who walks very slow but he had no problem walking three blocks to the beach and when he put his paws in the sand, he started galloping like a horse. He too, loved his visit. I want to come back with friends and family and rent both sides. It's just a lovely place! Thanks, Jimmy, for your hospitality! I'm so glad I chose your place!

Jimmy was beyond accommodating and amazing! The house was amazing and perfect for our trip! We loved it so much, we changed the venue for our ceremony to be in the courtyard! The pool and everything was great! We rented both sides and had our wedding party and family stay along! It was fantastic!

Awesome rental, don't look any further!

  • 5 of 5

Great rental with quality finishes all thought out. The courtyard and pool is amazing! You have bars, restaurants and a park all within a 5 minute walk. Not to mention close proximity to downtown St Pete and St Pete beach. The owner is very friendly and accommodating! Reserve and you won't be disappointed!

A One!

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay in a very nice laid back town, 'far from the maddening crowd'. Everything in the unit you need for a very comfortable stay. A good number and diverse eating and drinking establishments within a short walk. Easy day trip to St. Pete or the beaches. Nothing I can fault.
