Fantastic location, accommodations worked well for us. No frills, but we were all happy with it.

The property is walking distance from a great little area with restaurants and shops, very convenient to get anywhere in the St. Pete area. It's an older home, the interior and furniture could use some sprucing up to make it 5 stars, but everything was great overall.

perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect house for my daughter and I on a short trip back to Florida. It was very cozy and quiet inside. Yet you are only steps away from wonderful small downtown Gulfport. Restaurants, shops, live music, so much to enjoy without ever having to get in your car and drive. The back yard is amazing, very secluded with a relaxing waterfront view. With the shade and late afternoon breeze , this was our go-to spot most early evenings we were there. It's always tough deciding among many rentals to go with, but we definitely picked the right one reserving Paradise Beach House. Oh and Lisa was a pleasure throughout the whole process.

great property

  • 5 of 5

Loved the small town of Gulfport, and the beautiful apartment we stayed in. The bay was pretty with great back yard and little beach. Public beach 5minutes walking. Great restaurant and bars also 5 minute walking distance. No traffic and slower pace compared to clearwater ot treasure island. Hope to come back again.

Beautiful! The apartment is delightfully decorated, very clean, and cozy.

We live about 10 minutes away, so this was a staycation for us. Our home was being tented, and we needed a place to stay that would allow us to have our dogs with us. I am very picky about cleanliness and smell, so I was concerned about a place that allows dogs. Let me tell you. I was beyond impressed with the cleanliness and the fresh beautiful apartment. You would never know that animals have ever been inside! Lisa, the owner, is very responsive and kind. The location is fantastic! Right next to a park and about 3 blocks from a nice dog park. Charming downtown Gulfport is just a few blocks away with outstanding restaurants and sweet local shops. I was born and raised in St. Pete, and I have done a lot of traveling, Gulfport is my favorite place and the Paridise Beach House is definitely one of the top places I've stayed! You won't be disappointed.
