Welcome to Gulfport Guest Cottage, a cute and comfortable guest house in the quaint and quirky village of Gulfport, one of the most LGBT-inclusive communities in all of Florida. Imagine lovely old oaks covered in Spanish moss, brick-paved streets and cute little colorful cottages.
Rates are $115 per night (2 night minimum) or $700 per week, except winter.
Our Gulfport cottage is approximately 1000 square feet, and has two bedrooms (one with a queen-sized bed, the other with a full-size bed), one bathroom, an open living room/dining room, full kitchen, and Florida room with bar. The living room sofa can double as a comfortable bed for an extra guest. It has an open floor plan with a great feeling of spaciousness.
Gulfport Guest Cottage is furnished with our own furniture and accessories so that it feels like your own comfortable home. Our recently remodeled kitchen is fully equipped for cooking, serving and entertaining. The cottage has central a/c and heat, ceiling fans, cable television, private parking, spa/hot tub in garden, gas barbecue grill, iron/ironing board, hair dryer, and a washer/dryer onsite. All towels and linens are provided. Wireless internet access is available in the cottage and at several locations in the village.
Our yard is fenced in, and we welcome well-behaved dogs! (We do not allow cats due to the sensitivities of other guests.)
From the cottage, you can easily walk to Beach Blvd. and the Waterfront Arts District where you’ll find cute, independent boutiques, art galleries and more than a dozen restaurants in what has become a major dining destination in the Tampa Bay area.
Gulfport has nightspots that offer live music all week long. On Shore Blvd., stroll along the beach overlooking Boca Ciega Bay. Watch the sunset over the Don CeSar in the distance. Gulfport Guest Cottage is just a short walk from the Gulfport Marina and Clam Bayou Nature Park, great for kayaking, strolling and bird-watching. Clam Bayou is part of the Great Florida Birding Trail.
Gulfport also has fun and lively events throughout the year. Art Walks occur on the first Friday and third Saturday evening of each month, with local artists lining the sidewalks of Beach Blvd., displaying and selling their work. Our Fresh Market happens every Tuesday, with more than fifty vendors that offer a variety of foods, bath and body products, arts and crafts, and live music. There are also special annual festivals throughout the year, including GeckoFest, SpringFest, Aquamania!, 4th of July Celebration, Bluesfest, Holiday Hoopla, and the Get Rescued animal-rescue festival.
Just a short drive away, you’ll find downtown St. Petersburg, the Dali Museum, the Gulf Beaches, Clearwater, Tampa, Ybor City, and Busch Gardens. Orlando, Disney, Universal Studios and LegoLand are just two hours away by car. Sarasota is a one-hour drive.
We are very familiar with Gulfport and the surrounding area and would be happy to offer information and suggestions during your stay.
Our Gulfport vacation cottage is the perfect home away from home during your visit to Florida’s Gulf Coast. It’s ideal for individuals, couples or small groups or families. We are not “professional landlords.” We just have an extra home on our property that we enjoy offering to visitors. We’d love to welcome you to Gulfport for your next visit.
