Gulfport bungalow description

Welcome to Beach Breeze Bungalow, appropriately named, as it is a second story bungalow that truly catches the lilt of sea breezes. The bungalow is located on Beach Blvd in the heart of Gulfport's Historic Waterfront District. Check in at the August Vernon Studios Gallery in front of the property and walk beyond the gate through the butterfly and flower laden path to the privately fenced and tropical courtyard. The Bungalow sets above our neighbors, providing you with a view of Boca Ciega Bay. Inside you will find tumbled marble floors throughout, new full kitchen with farm sink and granite countertops fully stocked if you preferred to cook, bedroom with new queen mattress set and fluffy pillows, a sunroom with an additional queen pull out and a sectional sofa that converts into a cube to accommodate one more. Amenities also include Keurig coffee maker with a variety of K-cups, ceiling fans, new windows to enjoy the breeze, flat screen HDTV with HBO, Starz, Cinemax and Showtime, propane gas grill for cook outs and an assortment of board games. Coming soon: a new deck! Keep your eye on us… We are Just Getting Started!

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2013

                      About the owner: What happens when two artists from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania go on vacation to the Gulf Coast of Florida in their first year as empty nesters and stumble across their dream home just a block away from the beach? They buy it of course and renovate it into a Fine Art Gallery and Studios on the first story and an elegant tropical getaway on the second story. Our names are Susanne and August, and we would like to welcome you to step back in time and experience a relaxing 'old Florida' vacation in style.

                      Why the Owner Chose Gulfport:
                      The Bungalows location is perfectly situated in the heart of Gulfports Waterfront District. Experience the colorfully vibrant restaurants and shopping of Beach Blvd directly in front of the BBB, while the secluded 2nd floor rear location provides a tranquil oasis for your ideal vacation. This property also offers a unique artistic experience. The owners August and Susanne operate their art studio and gallery located on the Beach Blvd side of the property. Whether you are lounging in the tropical courtyard garden, or browsing the fine artistry of the gallery, the Bungalow is sure to offer a delightful vacation experience.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
                      Have we mentioned we are in the Heart of Gulfport's Waterfront District? We are surrounded by wonderful restaurants and shops in an undiscovered jewel of Floridas' Gulf Beach towns. All year, every Tuesday is the Tuesday Fresh Market festival. Every first Friday and third Saturday there is an Artwalk Festival... these events take place right at our front door. We would be happy to accommodate any special requests for your stay as your personal concierge. Susanne is a renown mosaic artist and instructor. She is happy to offer private or small group mosaic workshops. Consider an artistic tropical retreat for yourself, or with friends and family.
