Tyn & Marty's is the quintessential old-Florida summer cottage, sited on a large corner lot in the Waterfront District.

The space

Tyn & Marty's is the quintessential old-Florida summer cottage.

Sited on a large corner lot in the Waterfront District. Lovely wood floors in the living area, bedrooms and in the hallway. The bathroom has a tile floor.

Large windows with blinds in the living room and bedrooms allow you to let as much light (or as little) as you'd like.

Eclectic furnishings. Main entry off the kitchen via the wooden deck.

Five ceiling fans plus Central Air/Heat.

The bedrooms are located at one end of the house, away from the living area and kitchen. Each bedroom has a queen bed, a closet, a ceiling fan, a dresser and two windows. One bedroom has a stackable washer/dryer in the closet so storage is somewhat limited.

Relax in this clean, quiet and relaxing cottage in a convenient location with easy access to ehe area's wonderful activities.

Very centrally located to Gulfport, St Pete Beach and downtown St Petersburg, with Tampa's activities just 15 minutes further.

Tyn & Marty's is walking distance to the excellent shops and restaurants and only a few minutes from a marina, nature park, fishing pier, library, theater, dolphin-watching cruises, golf, the beach and more!

Pillows, towels and linens are provided as are kitchen basics.

Keypad entry on the front door. Everything you need and nothing you don't! Public transportation nearby.

Easy entry to Pinellas Bike Trail and very walkable neighborhood. Tennis courts and dog park several blocks away.

Other useful information:
The closest beach is a five-minute walk away. The house is located in the Waterfront District and you have two parking spaces off the street. No worries about parking during special events such as 4th of July Fireworks which you'll be able to watch from the comfort of the front yard. A car isn't required but it is recommended.

Connie & Marty's has free wireless Internet access.

Linens are included - bath and kitchen towels and sheets.

The house is not wheelchair accessible.

This cottage is adorable quaint old florida! So much better than a hotel stay. Bth was great to deal with. I am so jealous - I want a cottage n Gulfport :-)

The cottage is in an excellent location--a very short walk to the quaint main street of Gulfport, so restaurants, shops, and the waterfront are easily accessible. Beautiful beaches and Tampa attractions such as Busch Gardens are in manageable driving distance. We were able both to relax and keep our children entertained.

Just got back home and wanted to send a positive review for Tyn & Marty's cottage. We had a great stay in Gulfport and everything was just as advertised. We had a clean and comfortable place to call home for the weekend and we could not have asked for more. Can't wait to book again in the future. Close to all of the popular destinations in the area. Thanks

Elizabeth's place in Gulfport was perfect. I live in Gulfport and my family came to town to visit for a week. This house was the perfect place for them to stay while they were here. It's just around the corner from all that Gulfport has to offer, just down the street from my home, and was a lovely little place. It was rainy the whole time they were here but the house was large enough that we were able to hang out inside to play games and catch up without it feeling crowded and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook feasts each day. I really can't say enough about how great this place was. My family was comfortable and had a great time. They even want to make it a yearly trip to come down to Gulfport and stay at this house.

What a pleasure to find professionals in your industry here in Gulfport. Communications and logistics were spot on, and in my experience that has not often been the case. Your property was exactly as advertised and made us proud for our family to stay there. Hope to be revisiting Tyn n Marty's again real soon.

I'm from Michigan, but I’ve lived in Texas and Arizona most of my adult life.

My interests are photography, travel, food, historical fiction.

What do I do in my spare time? I don't understand the question!?

Fun fact about me. We foster kittens until they’re ready for adoption. Our first family was 7 kittens with ringworm. This required twice-weekly visits to the shelter for lime-sulfur dips and complete cleaning of the room twice weekly. And we utterly failed as fosters! We adopted 2 of the 7!

Some of my favorite things are: Bright colors (not to be confused with shiny, pretty things), chocolate, humor, great lines, magic moments, a beautiful beach, wide-open spaces, aerial views, Flat Whites, Meet Joe Black, Outlander series, U2, Yanni, Enigma, A Tuna Christmas, Houzz, New Zealand, Florida Gulf Coast, old European cities, photography, fields of bluebonnets, Pinterest.

My full-time job is overseeing the investments and financial operations at a 48-year old family foundation based in Austin. The foundation seeks innovative projects in the area of health, education, human services and community affairs.

What is it like to have me as a host? We are prepared and want our guests to be prepared as well. Once we send arrival details guests rarely have questions, but we’re here if you need us. We have a message tree set up so that requests go to 3 phone numbers to make sure we can respond as quickly as possible to a guest’s need. We also use an app that guests can access from their phone or computer to get info about the area and the home during their stay. We try to think of everything and have our homes set up for travelers. What am I like as a traveler? I like to be on my own and don’t require much interaction although I’d be happy to meet our hosts.

Do I have a life motto? I’m a big fan of big-picture dreams but not being married to them. Things change, people change and sometimes you just need to go in a different direction. I plan when necessary but I don’t plan everything. I’m fairly prepared most of the time – I’m always looking for another way if the first way doesn’t work out. I almost always have a “plan B” in my back pocket.

We take a team approach to managing and caring for our homes. We’ve had relationships with many of our service providers/team members for YEARS. They know we don’t want our guests going without air-conditioning on the 4th of July. They know we want yards mowed on schedule. They know we want our homes clean. We know you want more than a couple of forks and some plastic glasses in the kitchen! We know you want clean, fresh linens and household equipment that works.
