Thank you for letting us use the cottage. We really enjoyed it. Plus the area was amazing. I had penty of quiet to recover from surgery and plenty of places to walk to. The beaches are beautiful here. We will be back in February 2013 for my three month check up. I will look you up to see if it is available.

Reviewer Comments:
My husband and I stayed in Flamingo Cottage on our trip from Michigan for a wedding in Tampa. I was looking for something away from the chaos of downtown, touristy areas. Gulfport is exactly what I was looking for. We arrived in the middle of the night and were skeptical about the area as we drove through in the dark. In the morning, it was like a curtain had been lifted and revealed this beautiful village. Brick roads, a short walk to a pristine, quiet beach...we couldn't have asked for better. The town of Gulfport is so charming. Little shops, restaurants...everyone is so friendly!
The cottage is small, but that's what we wanted. It was perfect for the two of us. I think it would be quite crowded for more than two. It is clean and well stocked. We didn't cook here, but if we had, it would have been like cooking at home.
Gulfport is close to many busy areas if that's what you're looking for. Clearwater, St. Pete, Tampa...they are a short drive from Gulfport. Grocery stores are close by and convenient.
If you are thinking of staying here, don't hesitate to do so. We loved it so much that we want to move here!

Reviewer Comments:
Flamingo is homey and comfortable and totally Florida. Simple but very nice. Everything you could possibly want and you couldn't ask for a better location closer to the beach and the "strip". The only frustration was that all of the information about transportation, restaurants, and other local information was hard to find and not up-to-date. Aside from that, it was a delight.

We loved the Flamingo experience. The cottage was just the right size and pretty handicap accessible since I came with a broken leg. We found he parking lot pretty dark and could have used some hand rails by the shower.

Flamingo Cottage

We stayed at the charming Flamingo Cottage. It was just right for our girl's getaway. The cottage is located in an old traditional Florida neighborhood. It was quaint and comfortable. Best thing about the cottage was it was a short walk to the beach and downtown. Lots of little shops and great restuarants located on the main street of Gulfport and on the water. Mostly locals walking their dogs. Very close driving to St. Pete Beach and Passagrille area. Enjoyed our long weekend.

Loved Gulfport and the Flamingo Cottage

  • 5 of 5
Pleasantly surprised with Gulfport!! We usually stay in Madiera, but I now think Gulfport is our new favorite. The beach was never crowded and the area is very pet friendly. The cottage very functional and nicely decorated. Good food at the local restaurants. We love the Habana Cafe.
