Property description

This is not your typical rental with hand-me-down everything. From the moment you walk in, you will feel at home in this cozy beach cottage. Recently upgraded, this lavishly redone home has a spacious master suite with jetted tub and stall shower, plus sliding doors to the salt-water, solar-heated pool. The master has received a new loveseat, two chairs, a coffee table, and a dressing table, plus a huge Tommy Bahama armoire. Relax in the large living room with wide-screen TV and electric fireplace (no mess, just ambience!), do some quiet reading in the cozy office, or hang out in the sun/dining room with your morning java & paper. The roomy second bedroom has its own private bath with tub shower. Both bedrooms have new bed covers. Our small office has a desk, wi-fi, and a 3 in 1 printer. There is also a very comfy loveseat, which can be converted into a twin-size bed by adding the 3rd. section. The kitchen has the latest appliances and is well equipped for those who like to cook. New dishes, cutlery, cookware, utensils, and blender have been added. Don't care to cook? There is a plethora of fabulous restaurants just three short blocks from your door. The lanai has many lounging chairs and a grill, plus lots of pool toys for kids & adults alike. Our front porch features a small seating area for two, plus a bistro table under the trees for al fresco dining. Our separate laundry is equipped with new washer, a dryer, iron and board. A quiet, safe getaway perfect for a couple or family where you can walk or bike to everything you need. PLEASE NOTE: DURING THE WINTER SEASON, WE RENT FOR 30 DAY PERIODS ONLY.

Car: Recommended

Gulfport is a quaint beach community only 2.5 sq. miles in area. We are bordered by St. Pete beach on the west and St. Pete downtown on our east. St. Peterburg has numerous museums, including the largest collection of Salvador Dali in the world. Our little town has a lovely beach on Boca Ceiga Bay with two fishing piers, a playground, volleyball & basketball courts. The historic Gulfport Casino offers numerous dance lessons, dances, and performances. There are many restaurants along our beach front offering live entertainment, plus 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, plus two waterfront nature parks are a 10 min. walk. There is bus service within 2 blocks to both downtown St. Pete and St. Pete beaches, plus any major shopping areas. You are staying in a small beach enclave, home to many artists, with quiet brick streets where everyone walks or rides a bike, yet minutes away by car or bus to cultural and entertainment venues. 35 mins. to either Tampa or Sarasota, which offer additional entertainment options.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: My husband, Don, and I are a semi-retired and split our time between two homes in Florida and Colorado. We enjoy skiing, hiking, boating, fishing, attending theater, opera, ballet, and museums. We own a small camper and love to travel to new places and meet new friends. We strive to ensure that our guests feel as much at home as possible, and try to provide all the info they need to feel like a local almost immediately.

Why the Owner Chose Gulfport, FL, USA:
This sweet little cottage in a lovely quiet neighborhood is beautifully appointed, yet you can walk a block to the beach or 3 blocks to restaurants, pubs, and shops. Take a yoga class, get a massage, have your nails done, get your dog groomed, pick out a book at the library, have lunch on the beach, take a salsa lesson, ride your bike to the market, fish off the pier or just plain relax by our pool and read a book. You CAN have it all:)

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
There are two good bikes on premises equipped with a lock, plus additional bike rentals are close by. Boat, kayak, and jet ski rentals are also close by. Bus transportation within 2 blocks to beaches and cities of St. Petersburg, Tampa & Sarasota.
