An award winning designer and builder, Mr. Brattain has brought his family's history to life in the quaint town of Gulfport, FL. The concept of the property was inspired by the memory of his grandmother and love of his grandfather who moved to Gulfport after WW11.

The property features a pool, private courtyard and parking for two vehicles, custom finishes, such as original murals, crown molding, pecky cypress ceiling, custom fabric backed banquette seating, floor to ceiling marble bathroom, custom lighting including LED recessed lights, ceiling fans, stainless steel appliances including microwave, quartz counter tops, porcelain faux wood flooring, DVD player, wireless Internet, flat screen TV's, washer/dryer, private courtyard, parking for 2 vehicles.

Beach.

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 Gulfport

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

Perfect weekend getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our son's graduation here and everyone was very impressed with the house and its decoration. Everything was as advertised online. It was like an escape from reality. Everything that was needed was there. The pool and patio area were beyond relaxing and the decoration inside the house was unique, as well a conversation starter. Definitely will be going back! Jimmy, the owner, was also readily available whenever we had questions and extremely hospitable. Two thumbs up👍?🏻?👍?🏻?

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!!
