The Space

This beautiful cottage was completely renovated with comfort and relaxation in mind. It is located in the Art District in Gulfport Florida. This is the second cottage of three located on the Wishing Well property. It has an amazing kitchen with everything you need to cook or entertain friends. There is a large bathroom with a walk-in shower with a rain head! The bedroom has a new queen bed that is very comfortable. The living room has a large futon with an extra thick mattress perfect for guests.

All of the shops, restaurants and Gulfport's beach are within a short walk of this cottage. This 360 square foot cottage has a lovely front porch for enjoying the Key West style atmosphere. There is also a large courtyard with a Gazebo and Gas Grille for the enjoyment of guests.

All of Gulfport is within walking or biking distance of the (website hidden). Petersburg with its museums and shopping is just a short 7 minute car ride. Ft. Desoto Park is also a 7 minute car ride.

This is a beautiful place in a great little beach town. Come once you will be back again and again. This is the kind of town you only tell your good friends about, lest it get spoiled. Come visit a real Florida beach town...

  • Very cute little cottage, clean and bright, tastefully decorated and everything in great shape. Paula was quick to reply to all my needs, flexible and easy to get in touch with. We arrived later than planned, so we were met by her husband who was very welcoming, gave us a brief but thorough intro to the neighborhood. It's a fun area to walk, and a great location to be able to stroll down to the water and to local shops and restaurants, which are just a block away. (We ate at Pat's cantina-- good food and great craft beer).
    This is a great little spot, and in a great community with easy access to all surrounding areas, including beaches.

  • Paula and Alex were wonderful hosts who went above and beyond. The cottage was recently remodeled including everything you would need including misc toiletries and DVDs. I really appreciated the bikes and kayaks to help us explore the amazing, artsy Gulfport area. Will definitely rent from them again. They made for a great weekend.

  • Paula is a awesome host that's very kind and a pleasure to talk to. The cottage is perfect and looks exactly like the photos! I stayed with my wife and my two small children and the size was perfect. The cottage is walking distance to many fine restaurants. My family and I plan to come back and stay for a longer time! I highly recommend this perfect cottage!

  • My family (4 of us) rented a CUTE cottage for 4/3 nights. We had a
    great time staying at this cottage in quaint Gulfport town. Walking
    distance to restaurants & shops, even to the beach. Cottage provides
    kayaks, beach chairs, and cooler. We couldn't ask for a
    better cottage than this. Paula is a good communicator with emails.
    You won't regret this clean & cozy cottage. Hope to be back soon.

  • This cottage is really cute and well located. Alex welcomed us even if we were a bit late and he gave us a lot of tips : where to look at the sunset, where to eat etc. We spent only two nights there but we highly recommend it !

  • I loved Paula's cottage! I was in town for business and located this charming cottage near St. Pete for the weekend. The town of Gulfport turned out to be one of the highlights of my extended time in Florida. It's a darling artist town with lots of great eateries. The cottage itself was remodeled with care and love. Paula and her husband were extremely welcoming and were great to chat with upon arrival telling funny stories about remodeling. They even offered to provide kayaks (we ended up exploring some beaches instead). I highly recommend this listing.

  • We thoroughly enjoyed the host and the space. We felt comfortable and welcome, which is huge for me when traveling. The neighborhood was great, felt safe and close to everything we could have asked for. We loved how friendly people were.

    The cottage was a perfect size and offered all we needed and wanted, including the ability to grill each day! The pictures of the place lived up to the pictures on the site.

    Thank you, Paula and Alex for a great place to stay, great conversations and a new found friendship.

  • Paula and Alex are nice and warmhearted people. They make you feel like you belong to their family. The cottage is spotless, decorated with taste and very comfortable, also well located at the heart of local artists community. It’s close to the beach as well as many charming bars and restaurants. In addition, you can use one of their bikes and the area is perfect for cycling! I also recommend visiting the Dali museum in St. Petersburg, 10 minutes by car from the “perfect cottage”. It spent a really nice vacation over there. Thank you for making me feel like at home.

  • This was a great find in a very quaint artist town. The cottage was perfect for the two of us...trying to escape the big city before our first little one arrives. Paula and Alex were great hosts. The cottage was stocked with soft linens and lots of extra towels. It was a bonus to have the camping chairs and cooler so we could take full advantage of the beaches. The cottage is on a quiet street, parking was super easy, and we loved being able to walk to the various restaurants. Paula even left us a map and some menus. Be sure to take advantage of the Tuesday Market...they had fresh produce and local artists selling their crafts. Communication with Paula was quick and helpful. We loved having the kitchen to make coffee in the morning (thanks for having the supplies on hand). This is the perfect weekend get-a-way and the cottage is the perfect place to stay.

I'm originally from Chicago, been married to a wonderful guy for 20 years. We love to go sailing, restore houses and show people our beautiful quirky beach town. Also have to mention that I am an avid hockey fan!
