Recent Gulfport property reviews

  • Bird of Paradise rental experience

    "This is the second time we have rented a weekly vacation home in Gulfport and our first stay in Bird of Paradise Cottage. There do not seem to be a lot of weekly rental properties available in Gulfport and Bird of Paradise Cottage seemed very affordable compared with our last Gulfport rental. The cottage is very clean and the interior appears to have been recently remodeled throughout - the listing photos accurately reflect the unit's appearance. The cottage is advertised as having two bathrooms - the ad doesn't say that the second bathroom is outside in the screened-in porch area. This would not have been a problem if the weather had been warmer but morning temperatures were in the 30's during our December stay. We found the kitchen difficult to cook in because there is minimal lighting (one overhead light and a fan light) and only one electrical outlet to plug in a small appliance so I would hesitate to rent this for a longer stay. The location is within easy walking distance of downtown restaurants, live music, the dance casino, and the beach. The neighborhood was very quiet and we enjoyed walking around town."

  • Beautiful place to stay! Highly recommended, would rent again!

    "This cottage was perfect for our family vacation. It's clean, well-maintained, nicely decorated, with plenty of room for our kids to play. Location is close to the beach, fresh market, restaurants, grocery stores etc. Neighborhood felt safe and the neighbors we met were very nice. Kitchen was clean, all the appliances worked well, and being able to cook for our family made our vacation much more affordable. We really appreciated having a washer & dryer on-site too. Yard is beautifully landscaped just like the photos, perfect for relaxing. The TV has cable and the secure wi-fi signal was very strong, great for iPad/tablet/smartphone users. Gayle was wonderful to work with! She is very pleasant and took the time to answer all our questions. We highly recommend this owner and this rental property!"

  • Christmas Vacation

    "We enjoyed our stay in this comfortable home within walking distance of the quaint downtown area of Gulfport. This is a very dog friendly city and our pet enjoyed eating out at one of the restaurants and playing in the dog park almost across the street from this home. The little church across the street was a pleasant bonus on Sunday morning - dress is casual and the congregation friendly. We did encounter one problem at the home but contacted the property manager who responded immediately. We would recommend this home to others and hope to return in the future."

Gulfport Travel Tips

Relax and Have a Real Vacation at Gulfport Vacation Rentals

When you go on vacation, you want to come home feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. With Gulfport condos and vacation homes, you can get the relaxation you need by avoiding crowded hotel rooms. Avoid the stress that comes with only one bathroom and no place to really relax. Spend time with your family in a place where you can really spread out.

Find that Relaxation at Gulfport, Florida

Gulfport is a suburb of St. Petersburg and retains that small-town feel. Away from the hustle and bustle of the bigger city of St. Petersburg, you'll be able to relax, whether on the beach or walking around looking at the unique shops in downtown Gulfport. Gulfport has trolleys that can take you around town. There are two trolleys; the blue one with flamingos will take you to St. Pete Beach, while the red and green one can take you around town—and it's free!

What to Do near Your Gulfport Vacation Rental

While in Gulfport, check out the Gulfport Casino Ballroom near the waterfront. The name might fool you, because there isn't any gambling here; instead, dance events are held here that include swing, salsa, tango, and ballroom dances. The building has 5,000 square feet and features an authentic 1930s dance floor. Of course, a night on the town isn't complete without some local cuisine. One popular restaurant in Gulfport is La Fagota Churrascaria, a Brazilian restaurant. Another restaurant you might want to try is Backfin Blue Cafe, which features mostly seafood, and the crab cakes are said to be especially good.

If you're into nature, you might want to check out Clam Bayou Nature Park, a 10-acre park near Central West waterfront rentals that has many beautiful nature trails to walk and might just allow you to get a glimpse of a manatee, dolphin, water birds, and more.
