Cozy, clean and quiet is what the 7 Egrets cottage is. Small enough to be cozy, large enough to entertain a dozen. Located less than two blocks from the beach, shops and restaurants. It’s charming with all the comforts of home.
Unhappy Guest !!!
After arriving to the house I was very happy about the location. Within walking distance to the water and shops. The house is small not ideal for more then three people. The owner said they were pet friendly and I told him up front I would be traveling with my two dogs. I bring them everywhere with me and we have stayed in some of the best hotels in the state. Im always prepared when we travel making sure to bring blankets to cover up things and put down on the floor. First thing I wanted to do is take a long hot shower after being on the road for two days. After getting into the shower I saw mold in the corners and on the wall there was also a funny smell after turning on the water. Not long after that the hot water started going out so I had to end the shower early. After looking around I saw the water heater in the closet and it was way to small for this house. If your traveling with kids this is not the place for you. Then I went to unpack and sat on the bed and it sounded like it was going to fall thru the floor. Wanting to make my dogs feel at home so I moved the table to the side and put their blankets on the floor. Then used one of the blankets from the spare bed to cover the sofa. Before doing that I noticed the carpet was filthy good thing I travel with blankets. There was only a very small trash can in the kitchen so I had to take the garbage out to the ally almost every day. Parking in the ally was a mess you need a 4x4 to get thru so hope you don't have a nice car. I had to go to the carwash every other day. The wash and dryer are also in the back of the house you have to go outside then into the back of the garage. There is an apartment upstairs that is also being rented out so be prepared for other people sharing your space. When I left I put the dirty towels and blanket on the floor in the bedroom just like when staying in a hotel. I then received a notice that the owner was keeping half of my deposit cause there was dog hair on the floor, dirt on the blanket and a slice of pizza was left in the fridge. That is something the cleaning fee should have covered so not sure what he is trying to pull. I guess he was not planning on cleaning the place for the next renters and just keeping the cleaning fee. Even a 5 star hotel does not charge extra for dog hair and if a blanket got dirty just wash it. Better then the dogs being on the sofa that cant be washed. If the hair is that big of a deal then "don't allow dogs" cause they do shed...

Paradise in a quaint little town
My husband and I needed to get away for about 12 days and this little cottage was a gem in the middle of the quaint town of Gulfport. A block and a half from the beach and right around the corner from restaurants, bars and new friends. We recommend this place to everyone!! We will definitely be back!!! Thank you Bette and Jerry.
Quiet getaway spot
This cottage is clean and very well kept. Though small, the kitchen is well equipped with everything we needed. It is in walking distance to restaurants and shops and the bay. There is just a short drive to St Pete beach as well as grocery stores, shopping mall, movie theater and downtown St Petersburg as well as parks and trails. This is a quiet little getaway spot in the middle of everything.
Cute and charming cottage
Comfortable, stocked with all needs, warm, sunny, and inviting. Relaxing and renewing, with just enough fun, food, shopping, and beach, a very short walk away. Great time!!
7 Egrets — We’ll Be Back!
Tastefully decorated with a well-equipped kitchen and an easy walk to restaurants and shops, Seven Egrets will be our first choice for our next visit to family in Gulfport.
Gulfport is a quaint beach community only 2.5 sq. miles in area. Our little town has a lovely beach on Boca Ciega Bay with two fishing piers, a playground, volleyball & basketball courts. The historic Gulfport Casino offers numerous dances, performances and dance lessons. There are many restaurants along our beach front offering live entertainment, boutiques, galleries, and restaurants all within 3 blocks of our home. There are two small groceries within walking distance, several churches, the library, and the Gulfport Historical Museum. Gulfport Marina and Boca Ciega Yacht Club, and two waterfront nature parks are within a ten minute walk. There is bus service within 2 blocks to both downtown St. Pete and St. Pete beaches, as well as major shopping areas. This is a small beach enclave and home to many artists, with quiet brick streets which beckon walkers and bike riders, alike... Yet only a short ride by car or bus to cultural and entertainment venues. 25 mins to either Tampa or Sarasota, which offer additional entertainment options.
