Classic Dolphin House Gulfport - WiFi, petsOK, BookForSummer

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Mar 5, 2015
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Welcome to Dolphin House! This charming, spacious home is located in Gulfport's Historic Art & Beach District and is just 2 blocks for Gulfport's sandy beach on Boca Ciega Bay. It has the added bonus of having two separate living areas, a large master bedroom, split floor plan, covered porch and uncovered patio and an outside gas grill. Just two blocks from Williams Pier and Veteran's Memorial Park with benches, picnic tables and walkways. Watch dolphins swim by from the fishing pier or as you play at the beach or in the water.

Starting at 2 blocks away in another direction are a variety of restaurants and shops, one of which even has the local post office inside! Gulfport's Library is but a few blocks away and if you feel like shopping you can take the City bus service to Tyrone Mall. It stops just two blocks from Dolphin House. Then there is Gulfport's Casino, located at the beach, with a variety of dances from Country Western to Latin and Ballroom dances. And still another attraction is Catherine Hickman's Theatre with live plays. Regardless of the time of year you come to visit, you'll find something fun and exciting to do. Take the Gulfport/St. Pete Beach Connector Trolley for access to all the Gulf Beaches!

Gulfport is known as the "Gateway to the Gulf". A small, artistic community, it has a laid-back population of around 13,000. A short drive to Fort Desoto Beach (voted the nation's #1 beach in 2005), it is centrally located to everything you need for your Florida vacation.

The split floor plan means two bedrooms, one bath and one living area are in the front of the house, and one bedroom, one bath and one living area are in the back. The kitchen can be closed off from the front of the house with a pocket door, and from the rear of the hosue with glass French doors. Sleeping up to six, the home is perfect for a family or couples. Tile floors throughout the house. Ample sunshine enters the home all day long and multiple windows permit comfortable cross-ventilation when breezes blow on spring and fall days. (Central heat and AC is always available if you prefer.)

The home is decorated in beach and nautical colors. The front and back yards are professionally landscaped and irrigated, with night lighting. The back yard is completely fenced. The kitchen is completely equipped, with an assortment of cooking utensils, pots, pans, and dishes. Housekeeping services during your stay are available at a reasonable cost.

Reviewer Comments:
The Dolphin House was wonderful and just as described. We couldn't have asked for a better vacation home to accommodate two families traveling together. We each had our own space as well as a shared space for cooking and eating.Everything we needed was so easy to find as the kitchen was so well organized with labels in all the cupboards and drawers as to their contents. Gulfport is such an artsy and eclectic town and we were within walking distance to everything. We were also an easy drive to Clearwater, Tarpon Springs and other tourist locations. We highly recommend the Dolphin House to anyone wanting a great vacation home.

Reviewer Comments:
This was our third visit to Dolphin House in Gulfport, FL. We love Gulfport and we love Dolphin House. Gulfport is like old-time Florida, quiet and peaceful, easy to park and drive, good restaurants, art walks, and right on Boca Ciega Bay. Dolphin House is spacious, comfortable and well-equipped, including three flat-screen TVs and wi-fi.
Most of all, it is dog-friendly, with a charming fenced-in backyard and patio. The owner continuously makes improvements and upgrades to the property. It is only a short walk to the beach and to the nice restaurants. We will definitely be back again.(The only suggestion I would have is that the larger sofa in the main living room seems to be getting uncomfortable, without enough back support.) Otherwise, everything else is just great!

Reviewer Comments:
This house has plenty of room for up to 8 people and is larger than it may seem. It is stocked and furnished as described, and the outdoor/patio setting is very pleasant. It is in a great location for walking into the little town of Gulfport, which we loved, as well as being easy driving distance of St. Petersburg Beach, downtown St. Petersburg, and Clearwater. The surrounding neighborhood is very modest, but safe.

DOLPHIN HOUSE REVIEW

Reviewer Comments:
Had a great stay in Gulf Port. Dophin House was a lovely property with lots of space. Deceiving from the outside but very spacious on the inside.
All equipment in the house worked and was very easy to operate.
One issue with a few insects but I think expected in this climate. Bug sprays were available in the house so were used.
Location was good but as with most places in Florida a car is needed to get around.
Would recommend this location for a quiet and relaxing holiday.
