Our Amazing Vacation

Review submitted: June 29, 2014   Date of arrival: May 11, 2014

Pat and Tom went above and beyond to make sure that our stay was one to remember. From offering to get us groceries, to getting my Mom a birthday cake to die for, from a local bakery. I can't say thank you enough to her. The pictures and descriptions cannot do this sweet spot justice. Pat has obviously worked on end to make this house into a home. From the time you enter you feel like you have just stepped into your own home. The book she left cluing us into the "quirks" of the home, along with tips, menu's, tourist info and notes here and there, make you feel like you are just one of her friends. Sweet Spot was spotless, you can tell Pat maintains this home just like you or I would. She even had a few groceries stocked up just in case you needed something. We have already told family and friends about our amazing trip, and are already planning our next stay with Pat. We loved how close the home is to major beaches. St. Pete, Treasure Island, Madeira, Sunset and Clearwater Beaches are all within a 30 mins drive from Sweet Spot. I highly recommend Sunset Beach, it is well maintained, not too crowded, and the waves are very calm. The only thing that we wished were posted were handicap accessible areas at the beaches. My son is wheelchair bound and we had a heck of a time finding a good spot to take him down. Sea Critter's restaurant just a short drive over to St. Pete was amazing. Their sea scallop dish was great. If you like finding good deals, there are a ton of thrift shops very close by! I got 2 pampered chef stoneware dishes for $10.00! Pat asked me to be completely open and honest about our stay, to let her know if there was anything they could improve on or change. I ask that she not change anything. It was wonderful, she and her husband are wonderful. THEY made our trip! Thanks guys for sharing your "Sweet Spot" with us. We will most certainly be back. :)

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, people with disabilities, families with teenagers, girls getaway, pet-friendly, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Owners response: To receive a review like this is like a child waking up on Christmas Day! Our Guest's gracious words are all we could hope for and I surely do hope we will see you again. I'll make an effort to find out more accessible handicapped places and spaces and add it to the album. I really owe the lion's share of the effort to my husband Tom, the man behind the curtain who is physically capable and always extremely concerned about being sure all is spotless and in good working order at our Suite Heart. I will take credit for my Funky album but it's not even slightly difficult to fill an album with menus and tips of wonderful eateries, beach info and things of all kinds to do when you live in a community that's teeming with it. I can easily say we are " Loco for Local "

Our home away from home

Review submitted: May 3, 2014   Date of arrival: January 1, 2014

The home owners of Seaside Sweet Spot were welcoming, accommodating and helpful. We stayed 3 months and anything we needed (information, equipment or small repairs) were provided immediately. The cottage is nicely decorated without being overly cluttered. Lots of windows create a bright interior. The beds are comfy. When we arrived the cottage was clean and ready for us. Gulfport is a very friendly town and Sweet Spot is conveniently located to the beach and main street. We would recommend this cottage highly.

Recommended for: age 55+, families with young children, girls getaway, pet-friendly, sight seeing, tourists without a car

Owners response: We are so glad you found our Sweetheart to be your's too. We love to share her and all our hometown has to offer. We are very fortunate to have such a culturally rich town yet with that sparkle of hometown charm and of course our funky, renowned Gulfport quirkiness. Gulfport's " If you're to weird for Gulfport, you're to weird " motto fits in so many ways but we've always found the most accurate to be that our little burb's Citizens are so pleasant .. it's weird! Well, I guess it's happiness. Walking in Gulfport will turn up all sorts of original artsy finds of personal imagination, privately owned eateries that can't be beat and I can't think of one that doesn't have an area for your fuzzy kids to partake with you. We love to have bicycles outfitted with pet baskets for our Guests so you can be sure to get all around the neighborhood and not miss the delightful magic.
