Guestbook comments from the owner

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:
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.

Very nice!! We would recommend this property, great location close to beach, downtown and places to eat and drink. Only problem was the tv in the bedroom did not work.

The TV in the bedroom does work but had been set on the wrong input. Please call if you have any issues like this!

Reviewer Comments:
We stayed while work was being done on our home. We were happy to find a place that allowed us to bring both our dog AND cat. We were afraid we'd have to board our cat at the vets. It was so nice that the cat didn't even hide away! And we enjoyed our long walks around the neighborhood, allowing our dog to make many new "doggy friends"! Wonderful place!

Chose the Flamingo cottage because of price and location near Gulfport Casino which is dance hall. We were able to take in two dances during our stay. The restaurants with in walking distance were great most with outdoor seating Close to gulf beaches and we found lots to do in St. Petersburg.

Flamingo Cottage was an ideal location for all amenities, everything was so accessible but best of all were the bars and restaurants within easy walking distance. The cottage was delightful and comfortable with the gardens front and back being an added bonus.
