Welcome to Flamingo Cottage, located in the heart of Gulfport's Art & Beach district. This charming cottage is perfect for a romantic getaway or just a leisurely vacation. This one bedroom, one bath is just one block from the Beach. Private patio in front and off-street parking. One large bedroom with Queen pillow-top mattress. Decorated inside and out in the colors of the beach and sea, the interior floors are all tile. The remodeled kitchen has custom cocoa wood cabinets and Peacock granite counters. The grounds are professionally landscaped, irrigated with nighttime lighting. Tropical plantings provide privacy on the patio. The spring-fresh colors of our one-bedroom, Flamingo Cottage, will

charm you the moment you walk through the landscaped courtyard and

french doors into the tiled living room. Bamboo shades, walls of tempered-spring-green, rattan & wicker furnishings mark the main living area, all mere steps from our white sandy beach.

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:
This was our first trip to Gulfport, Fl & first time renting a cottage from Splashy Ventures. We truly enjoyed Gulfport & surrounding area. Gulfport is a very pet friendly town, we loved the farmer's market on Tuesdays and hanging out at the bars/restaurants. There's also a pier for fishing and a nice park along the beach. As for Flamingo Cottage it was just perfect for two & a small pet. It was very clean, nicely furnished, there was ample kitchen supplies & equipment, the bedroom was large, huge closet, ample drawer space, very comfortable bed. We had direct access to the laundry room which was a huge plus. The property itself was nicely landscaped, well maintained, the cottage is in a perfect location, just a block from the beach, short walking distance to the pier, many restaurants and bars, parks, etc. Gulfport is very pet friendly. The only disappointment in Flamingo Cottage was the very tiny bathroom which was located off the kitchen. The shower should have had a light as it's very dark and there should have been an exhaust fan. My husband and I hated to leave Gulfport and Flamingo Cottage, we truly enjoyed our two weeks and we will probably be returning next year and most definitely stay at Flamingo Cottage.

Reviewer Comments:
The unit is old and laid out badly. It needs some serious restoration. Waking up every morning to two or three dead roaches and countless silverfish didn't help improve things. But most outrageous was the total lack of maid service, something you get in even the cheapest motels. That I had to pay $40 additional every time I wanted the floors mopped or the sheets changed was insane. I won't be back.

We has a lovely stay at Flamingo cottage. A small problem with the shower draining was sorted out very quickly by Sally, who was very pleasant and we has long chats with her on several mornings. The cottage was in a good position for all the places we love.
