Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

Two Waves Cottage was perfect for our stay in Gulfport. Like most of the original houses in the area, it is small, but Graham and Sandi have done a wonderful job of maximizing space. The kitchen was remarkably well equipped. We had everything we needed and then some. We particularly loved the yard and patio, and I’m pretty sure our lab misses it. Most everything you’d want to do is an easy walk or drive from the cottage. We look forward to returning!

Lovely confortable space, convenient, nice outdoor space, excellent value!

  • 5 of 5

Sandi and Graham have provided a well-appointed yet traditional Gulfport cottage a short walk or drive from the waterfront and the artist community's downtown main street with its cute shops and restaurants. The cottage is cozy yet provides plenty of space. Nice appliances and places to sit and eat. New modern step-in spa shower with a window on to the private tropical backyard. The shed nearby offers extra storage for luggage, plus two bikes and a grill.

We stayed here for a month while relocating here for work, and were able to "live" and work here while enjoying all Gulfport and the area has to over.

Food recommendations: Backfin Blue cafe or Isabelle's. Beaches: Treasure Island / Sunset. Mostly undiscovered. Park in the public lot next to Caddy's and have the beach to yourself! Check out John's Pass boardwalk and shops - great for families with views of wildlife (porpoises and birds) in the channel. Enjoy!

Cute, cozy, cottage

  • 5 of 5

Two Waves Cottage is just a few blocks from downtown Gulfport. The kitchen is well equipped, wifi works well, washer and dryer are convenient, and there is a wonderful fenced backyard. Most importantly, the cottage feels like Gulfport: eclectic, inviting, cozy. Highly recommended!!!!!

Nice house with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed Two Waves. The house was clean and had everything you could ever need. The location was convenient to the heart of Gulfport. It was a perfect place for three kids and a dog. I hope we will be back.

Adorable cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect and was in walking distance to Gulfport beach and several shops and restaurants. The whole area is lovely and the people are super friendly! The yard was perfect for my two large dogs who kept very busy chasing lizards out back. I was even lucky enough to get to see boat races in the bay during my stay. It was perfect!

I would definitely recommend Two Waves Cottage!

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed here along with my brother in law and sister -- and our dogs. We found the accomodations very comfortable with an up to date kitchen and plentiful kitchenware --also a very nice fenced yard for the pets. The location was central to everything and there was lots to do both locally and in St. Pete's. The owners were very prompt with any concerns we had and very nice to deal with. We would definitely choose this cottage again!

Gulfport is an artsy seaside town with plenty of old Florida charm. It has a small town feel with shops, restaurants, and amenities all within easy walking distance, yet it's right next door to many Florida attractions like Busch Gardens, Fort De Soto (voted America's #1 beach), the Dali Museum, outlet malls, and the spectacular Gulf Coast beaches. You can walk a few blocks to the local Gulfport beach on beautiful Boca Ciega Bay, wander over to Clam Bayou nature reserve and kayak through the mangroves, or join in on one of the many dance events that take place at the Gulfport Casino dance hall with its beautiful location facing onto the bay. Gulfport is known for its colorful old Florida houses and artsy atmosphere, as well as its numerous festivals and events like Art Walk, GeckoFest, Tuesday Fresh Market, Antiques in the Park, and many others throughout the year.

Other Activities: dolphin watching, local beach, bird watching
