              Year Purchased: 2007

              About: My name is Mary and I would like to introduce myself and my husband Ric. We are a couple originally from Wisconsin. This cottage was our winter get away for the first few years. We loved the area so much we bought a house and live down here full time! Our main residence is only a couple miles from our beautiful Craftsman Cottage. That way we can take special care of the property and also enjoy it when it is not rented out. I am an artist and crafter and my husband owns a business in St. Petersburg and Madison Wi. We have four grown children and 4 beautiful grandchildren. Family is so important to us and we want to provide a place for others to come and enjoy our beautiful and quaint area!

              Why Gulfport:
              We chose this property because of it's location and quiet neighborhood. The cobblestone streets alone make it so beautiful! Our home is a block from the Gulfport beach and with in two blocks of some of the finest dining in the area! When we decided to make St. Petersburg area are permanent home, we couldn't bare to give up our craftsman style bungalow by the water. Now it has become a vacation rental property that we can share with others who want to enjoy a relaxing vacation in warm sunny Florida!

              The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
              We love the covered porch on the front of the house with the rocking chairs and beautiful garden. It is so wonderful to open the doors to the screened in Lanai that houses a solar heated salt water pool. Early morning swims and late evening dips give this property added appeal! The bamboo floors, fireplace and vaulted front entrance makes one instantly feel cozy and relaxed. This is one of the nicest rental properties in the Gulfport area! Attention to detail and décor is important to us. Come and enjoy all this property has to offer in the European style village of Gulfport Florida.
