Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 3

From the moment you step into this cheerful, tropical 1BR, 1BA getaway, you’ll be whisked away from the hustle and bustle of the everyday. Leave chilly mornings and hum-drum afternoons behind for a romantic retreat in balmy Gulfport, where the charms of Old Florida meet world-class dining, art, and welcoming community.

On the grounds of Flamingo Cottage, you’ll wander among palm trees and venerable oaks, tropical flora and lush green grass. Enjoy sunrises and twilight cocktails on your intimate private patio. Bring your four-legged family members to this pet-friendly haven, where they can run free in the expansive yard.

And when you're ready to dip your toes in the waters, Flamingo Cottage is just a short walk from the beaches and parks of Gulfport’s waterfront.

A DAY AT FLAMINGO COTTAGE

Open your eyes to a tranquil master bedroom. Touches of muted tropical flair offer hints of the paradise outdoors: palm leaf patterns decorate the walls and plush queen bed. Spend a relaxed morning in bed and flip on the HDTV to catch up on morning talk shows.

Sip your coffee on the patio as you map out your day of beachside strolls and gallery visits, then head into the kitchen to whip up a hearty breakfast. With custom cocoa cabinets, Peacock granite counters, and updated appliances, you’ll find an elegant space that will stand up to any recipe. Enjoy a leisurely breakfast at the intimate dining table.

After an active morning on the town, cool off in the A/C of your tropical living room, decorated with signature pops of lime and flamingo pink. Curl up on the sofa and watch your favorite shows on the HDTV, equipped with a DVD player, cable, and iHome.

Off the kitchen, you’ll find a full bath with echoes of the ocean: pebble stone floors, walk-in shower with sea-grey tile, and palm-tree wallpaper offer a restful retreat.

THE CHARMS OF GULFPORT

Your cottage is just steps from the beaches and parks of Gulfport’s Waterfront District—grab beach towels and chairs from the cottage and head to nearby Gulfport Beach. Hop into an impromptu game of beach volleyball, head down Shore Boulevard, and stroll the paths of waterfront Veteran’s Park.

In Gulfport’s thriving artistic and social community, the charms of Old Key West are preserved. Every day brings a fresh adventure and a new experience to explore—think twice-monthly art walks, the weekly Fresh Market, yearly sailing regattas, sandcastle competitions, art festivals, and Formula One boat races.

Catch 4th of July fireworks from the end of your quiet street. The Gulfport restaurant scene flourishes year-round; try a different restaurant each evening, or frequent your favorites in rotation. The many charms of Gulfport are at your fingertips.

Amenities: Free WiFi, Brighthouse Premier Cable, DVD and iHome are also available. Central heat/air, ceiling fan, washer and dryer in separate laundry room, large bedroom closet, walk-in shower with glass tile walls and pebble stone floor, bathroom sink/vanity with storage, mirror/medicine cabinet, towel hooks, towel rack.

About Beth Sexworth

Currently living in Austin, Texas, recently transplanted from Scottsdale. I oversee the investments of a family foundation and lead nature photography workshops.

Why Beth Sexworth chose Gulfport

It was literally love at first site. Flamingo Cottage and Palm Cottage are located on the same lot and I found them both while driving around the neighborhood on a business trip.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for letting us use the cottage. We really enjoyed it. Plus the area was amazing. I had penty of quiet to recover from surgery and plenty of places to walk to. The beaches are beautiful here. We will be back in February 2013 for my three month check up. I will look you up to see if it is available.

Reviewer Comments:

My sister and I spent four days here and truly felt at home. The perfectly sized home, comfy bed, and extremely accommodating host made our stay easy and relaxing. We explored Gulfport restaurants, bars, and parks by foot and were not far from downtown St Pete or beaches. An extra huge thank you to Beth who went above and beyond.

Owner's Response: Flamingo is sporting some new furnishings and some decidedly Flamingo-like colors these days. And the location can't be beat.

Cozy cottage perfect for two. Excellent location close to the water, in a walkable and friendly neighborhood. Management was very responsive to any of our questions or needs re a few small issues (thank you, Beth). Only big wish -- change Queen bed to a King, but we WOULD stay here again.
