What a beautiful house and wonderful hosts. We would highly recommend this property to anyone wanting to stay in the Gulf Port area. It was exactly as described and our every need was catered for. Paula and Alex were so welcoming to us and are so proud of their home it was such a joy to be there. They welcomed us into their lives and were so inclusive. Paula gave me great tourist advice before we traveled and indeed while we were there too. Their house is immaculately kept and has every home comfort you might ever need. It was exactly as described. Gulf Port is a very quiet lazy sort of town with great restaurants. We cycled around a couple of mornings with the bikes from the house. We also used the kyak from the house too at the beach. We give this property and Paula & Alex ***** :)
Paula was amazing! Made us feel right at home & ready with suggestions on what to do in Gulfport. Her cottage was clean and adorable. We had everything we needed to enjoy the area, Bicycles, kayaks, grill...Perfect long weekend.
Our hosts, Paula and Alex were terrific. They communicated clearly and promptly and met us in our arrival.
The longhouse we stayed in was excellent. Far exceeding our expectations for amenities, cleanliness, and location.
Everything was within easy walking distance including the beach front and lots of unique restaurants and stores.
The house had wifi good enough to stream Netflix. We cooked out on the grill and drank cool beers from the fridge. We even did a little laundry before leaving.
We spend a month in the Long House in Gulfport and loved it! The cottage was so comfortable and really well-appointed. Paula had provided tons of towels, beach gear, even a beach umbrella! Inside, the cottage is cheery, clean and extremely comfortable. We used the bikes every day and took the kayaks out on the weekends. The location is excellent, too. Gulfport is a cool little community with plenty to do -lots of live music every evening and interesting shops. Paula was excellent, too. We had a couple of small issues and Paula responded immediately and they were fixed within an hour or two. We highly recommend Paula and this property. We plan to return.
Paula was very nice she was at the property when we arrived and showed us around he house. The property was just as described, and included a handy guide to the area. It was very clean and welcoming. The house is located in a great location in town and we walked everywhere. Gulfport, Fl is a fun and funky town filled with great restaurant, shops, and local hangouts. I would highly recommend staying here and would stay here again myself.
Paula is always a very gracious host! The neighborhood is great, close to everything, loved being so close to the center and the beach. I have rented from Paula before and will continue to in the future when I am in that area, always. The place is fabulous with all needed to enjoy ones stay!
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! :)
