Guestbook comments from the manager

The house was SO CUTE so relaxing so clean. Elizabeth was super communicative about anything I reached out to her about - kitchen was so organized, and the backyard was maybe my favorite part. Neighborhood is funky with tons of personality. Totally lovely, miss the house already!

Reviewer Comments:

Harbor Mist was a great choice for our two weeks in FL visiting friends and family. Everything we needed was in the house. The kitchen is well-equipped; towels, including beach towels, are plentiful; there are sand chairs and umbrellas in the storage room outside. Beds are comfortable, even with my bad back, and the bed linens are lovely. The beaches are nearby: Pass a Grille, and the beaches north of there are easily accessible. Ft. de Soto is always a delight, a short drive. Restaurants are plentiful, both in Gulfport and at the beaches. We enjoyed early morning shelling, and late afternoon beach time to avoid the worst heat, and be there for sunsets. We also were delighted with sunset-watching at Gulfport, where there are benches and adequate parking. The house was perfect: near beaches and shopping, pleasant neighborhood for walking-- large marina at the end of the street. Recommend, for cozy, pleasant stay.

Owner's Response: And here was her review on that Gulfport area is a great location away from the St Pete Beach congestion but still close enough to be at the beach in about 20 minutes. Gulfport has its own charm that is relaxing and entertaining with great restaurants, shops, bars, and the pier to look out in to the gulf. There are a few minor items that I informed the owner about so hopefully they will be resolved. The biggest issue that may or may not be resolved is that check out is at 10am so if you have a later flight out you spend the day at the airport with your luggage. Makes one leave on a not so happy feeling! I did know this going in so it wasn't a surprise. Lovely home in one of my favorite

Reviewer Comments:

My wife was a little worried about the neighborhood. It turned out OK. Nice distance to Marina and the downtown Gulfport area. All of the pillows and spreads were in a pile in the middle of the beds when we got there. We didn't find out till two days later that the sheets were in the drier. Nice little house.... great backyard. Thank you for letting us bring our little dog.

A quaint home tucked away in a charming neighborhood, 20 minutes away from world class beaches, art, nature, and all that Florida has to offer. This is a well managed and updated rental in southern Florida.
