This property is a Key West style Beach Camp! This adorable comfortable cottage is known as the "Long House" it is one of three cottages on a 1939 beach camp known as the Wishing Well. Each house has been beautifully renovated with its own unique feature. The Property encompasses half of a city block and is a wonderful place to relax or enjoy all the fun and quirkiness of Gulfport!
The Long House was completely renovated in 2013 and is a spacious 900 square foot bungalow. There are two bedrooms on opposite ends of the house. The kitchen is well equipped with lots of counter space to cook and entertain. The house has a large laundry room with washer and dryer, beautiful new walk in shower, flat screen tv with cable, bicycles for roaming around and kayaks for exploring the beach and bayous! There is a large landscaped comfortable yard complete with a Gazebo and gas grill for entertaining or just relaxing in the shade.
The Wishing Well is located in the Art District in Gulfport. It is steps to the coffee shops, art shops, restaurants and beach. Gulfport is small city on the west coast of Florida with a wonderful "Old Florida" feel.
Take in a baseball or hockey game, deep sea fishing, sailing or or see the many art galleries and shopping in neighboring St Pete. Make sure you visit Ft. Desoto Park. It is a 350 acre park on the beach. It has been voted one of the most beautiful beaches in the US and is truly magical at sunrise and sunset. The park is just a short drive from Gulfport.
Paula gave us a warm welcome. You feel she is proud of her cottage and she takes care of it. The cottage is cosy and was very clean! You have everything what you need for a pleasant stay. Even for a day at the beach you have all you need.
The cottage is located just at the corner (email hidden)ly center of Gulfport. The boulevard is just 2 minutes walking.
And by car your are within 15 minutes on the white beaches of Fort de Soto or St Petes beach.
This cottages is highly recommandable!
I came for a week for work in Clearwater. I'd heard that Gulfport was a cool place and decided to stay here--about 30 mins away. I am so happy I did! Paula and Alex met me at the cottage, even though my flight came in late. They shared some great tips for beaches and restaurants to check out. I felt a little decadent staying in this large listing with just one person, but it was everything I needed. Clean, cozy, laundry and bikes included. I took advantage of the bikes, but didn't get a chance to kayak. I'll have to do that next time. If I return to Gulfport, I will definitely stay with Paula and Alex again.
This was a nice neighborhood with restaurant variety at walking distance(Beach bikes also available). The place made me feel like I was on vacation. Paula was a fantastic host. Next time we will stay longer.
Absolutely fantastic! Gulfport at its finest. Well maintained and very clean Key West style cottage/ grounds with everything we needed and more.... Fully stocked kitchen, large washer/ dryer, out door grill and sitting area made for some wonderful family time. A block off the Main Street with many shops and restaurants. A short 5 minute ( at most) walk to the beach.... We actually rode the bikes (2 of them come with the house as well as 3 kayaks). Paula and Alex are available for any local information you may need to make a perfect Gulfport vacation or get away. We look forward to staying again.
Paula and Alex were great hosts. They let my parents who live in St. Petersburg stock the fridge with breakfast food before we arrived. They were super nice and friendly to them. The "Long House" was very comfortable. It was just perfect. Our cousins were in town for a family reunion and saw the cottage enroute to dinner, they were very impressed with it. They stayed in a nearby hotel and paid way more money for a lot less space. Gulfport is a cool town. There is a glass blowing studio right across the alley and the artist was friendly and invited us to see him at work. We hope to return the next time we visit my parents. Very well done!
We had a great experience with Paula and Alex! We were impressed by how well stocked it was with basics in both kitchen and bath. The house was clean and tidy and just as promised. The neighbourhood is great with lots of shops galleries and a small grocery around the corner. It was friendly and a fun place to stay. Our visit coincided with the art walk and we got to meet our neighbours the glass blowers and watch a demo! We especially enjoyed the nearby beach and playgrounds for the little one. I highly recommend staying here. You won't be disappointed.
My two teenage kids and I really enjoyed our stay here. The house is so cosy and comfortable, with absolutely everything you need. It is well located too - Gulfport is a cute town with a strong sense of community and close to St Petersburg. Paula and her husband Alex were friendly and welcoming, even getting bikes for all three of us. We would definately recommend Paula's place!
un mois de rêve,
Nous avons rencontré Paula et Alex lors de la location d’une de leurs maisons. Nous avons fixé rendez-vous et quelle surprise de découvrir The Long House, plus belle que présentée sur airbnb. La maison est très grande, très bien équipée et propre à souhait. Paula et Alex sont des hôtes précieux. Ils habitent tout près et répondent à nos demandes presque sur le champ.
Le quartier est très sécuritaire et la maison est à 2 pas de la rue commerçante et la plage de Gulfport. Un havre de paix en ville. Nous rêvons de pouvoir les rencontrer à nouveau l’an prochain.

Paula and Alex are most accommodating. Anything we asked for was immediately acted upon.
We loved the place and location and will be back next year.

We greatly enjoyed our stay! The cottage was just perfect, very clean and bright, has everything you need (kitchen supplies, DVD player, washer/dryer, bikes, kayaks) and two comfortable beds. The cottage is less than one block from the main street in Gulfport w/ lots of art shops, restaurants, sidewalk cafes, a meditation center and a beach area at the end on the bay. Great area for a relaxing stroll. Twenty min drive to downtown St Pete or the Gulf coast beaches. Perfect location. Very friendly people in the neighborhood.
Paula and Alex were wonderful hosts, we enjoyed meeting them and will keep in touch. They explained everything very well and wanted to be sure we had a great visit. We'll visit again! Thanks Paula and Alex!
