My parents stayed here for my destination wedding in St. Pete Beach. My husband and I stayed for a few days and we couldn't have asked for a better place to relax before our big day. So relaxing and comfortable!!! Paula was amazing, super friendly and willing to do whatever to make our stay as comfortable as possible. We will definitely be coming back! :)
Paula is a wonderful hostess! She gave us a tour and lots of helpful advice. Home was exactly as pictured, very cute and clean. Lots of great shops and fun stuff nearby! We hope to come back again soon!
Our host was there to greet us just as we got out or our car. The cottage is very comfortable and the kitchen extremely well equipped. Although we didn't get to use the bicycles and kayaks, they are a definite plus. Proximately to the water and local restaurants make this an ideal place to stay when in the area. We would definitely stay here again!
Paula's cottage is very comfortable, the location is perfect you can find a lot of restaurants, bars and others interest places near to the cottage. If I'll come back to Gulfport, surely I'll choose Paula's cottage again.
Paula greeted me and my family, like we were her family. She smiled and hugged me, and wanted to be introduced to all of my family. She showed us around and made us feel at home. The cottages were wonderful, very clean and very comfortable. Everything we needed was there. Paula provided a playpen/crib for the baby. She also provided kitchen equipment that my daughter-in-law needed. We were thrilled to be able to stay at one place with the seven of us, 4 generations! (Me, my son and daughter-in-law, their daughter (my granddaughter) and husband, and their two children (my great-grandchildren). The location was perfect, walking distance from downtown, and a few minutes ride (actually also walking distance) from Boca Ciega Yacht Club, where we had all our activities.
Paula was a very gracious host. I had a very late arrival, which she accommodated. She met outside of the house, gave me a full tour, and recommended where to park. She was very friendly, and the house was very lovely -- clean, and well located to great restaurants.
