Lovely duplex in awesome location

  • 5 of 5

What a great find! We stayed on the RL side of the duplex, and just loved the furnishings - even better than the pictures! Everything was very clean and the place is well stocked. The location is fantastic for walking to downtown Gulfport. Jimmy was a fantastic host and we especially appreciated being able to bring our dog without a crazy amount of hassle. There were people renting the other side of the duplex but we had plenty of privacy - the courtyard on each side has its own door so it is completely fenced in (great for your dog). Easy enough to coordinate use of the pool, which is a really nice feature of this rental.

We were completely surprised by Gulfport - great little Florida beach town with friendly people, and so dog friendly - and we would definitely come back to this rental if we return to Gulfport.

One tip - 1 bedroom is upstairs, 1 downstairs. The small bathroom is upstairs. Just something to take into consideration if you're more than one couple renting.

This place is worth every penny.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for 6 days and we couldn't be more impressed. The decor inside the house is one of a kind and the time and effort that Jimmy has put into it is really cool. The pool outside is great and the outdoor Sonos speakers really make the pool experience fantastic. We sat outside at the patio table and chairs in the morning and night for breakfast or a game of cards. We felt very safe and Gulfport is very laid back. Very close to many great restaurants and bars in Gulfport. Jimmy did a great job of checking in to see if we needed anything during our stay and also sent a list of things to do while in town. We really enjoyed St. Pete Beach, heading to De Soto Park Beach (Jimmy has beach chairs, umbrella, and a cooler), and checking out the many restaurants in Gulfport (Stella's, Smokin' J's BBQ, Pia's, O'Maddy's and El Chapo Taco were all great). The Dali museum was also phenomenal. I really think that this place is worth it.

Absolutely fantastic!! Layout, pool, large, bright, GREAT location!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented both sides for 2 couples - both were beautifully decorated, super comfortable, walking distance of everything and clean. Jimmy has great communication as he was working thru some pool issues - he was very respectful of us as his guests. The homes are so nice, most definitely in our TOP favorites. We cooked, hung out at the pool listening to music and walked around town and to the beach/volleyball area - fantastic vacation and super relaxing.

Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

Was celebrating my hubby's 50th birthday at the Gulfport Casino, so I booked this quaint little place to accommodate our needs. This place was way above my expectations. Such awesome Florida history mixed with a deep sense of décor. Was a bonus to be able to take our little pooch. She really enjoyed the sundeck on the pool as she hates to swim (looking into building one in our own backyard now) & garden patio was so nice, especially at night with the lights! Owner has put ALOT of sweat & love into this place & it really shows! Was a short walk to the ballroom for our event & this area is so nice to walk through with our dog. Restaurants even offer dog water bowls while you dine. Home offers 2 bedrooms with pool view. Comfy sofa & all the home amenities. Would recommend this great place for anyone looking to enjoy a getaway. You'll definitely be in awe at the décor in this place! Can walk through quaint Gulfport or relax poolside. Owner easily contacted via text messaging & all directions & access easy! Would love to stay again anytime!
