traveler reviews for this gulfport house rental

The Sea Side Sweet Spot really is a Sweet Spot

Review submitted: January 21, 2014   Date of arrival: November 17, 2013

The Sea Side Sweet Spot is a charming smaller home in a residential neighborhood, which has all the comforts of home. It certainly was perfect for our purposes The front porch allows you to sit and watch life go bye, while the back yard is private and tranquil.
The city of Gulfport is literally at your feet. A short 3 minute stroll to the south will take you to the beach. While a 4-5 minute stroll to the east will take you to the main Boulevard where you will find numerous restaurants, boutiques, library and a weekly farmers market.
Not only did the Sweet Spot welcome our 2 Cairns, but the restaurants welcomed them on the patio with a cool refreshing doggy bowl of water.
The owners went above and beyond to make our stay more enjoyable by making suggestion based on our interests and helping us secure last minute tickets for attractions.
We have already recommended The Sweet Spot to some friends and will continue to do so.
Flo and I are also planning on returning.
Thank you Both for making a Great Vacation even better.
All the Very Best
Tom & Flo

Cosy, cute and convenient to everything!

Review submitted: November 29, 2013   Date of arrival: May 6, 2013

My husband and I were lucky to find the Sweet Spot when we were looking for a pet-friendly rental as we checked out the St. Petersburg,, FL area. It exceeded our expectations ! The cottage has everything you need and the location is perfect. Walk to all the charming stores and great restaurants in Gulfport and it is a very short walk to the Gulfport beach. The owners are extremely helpful and eager to make your stay easy and comfortable. Gulfport is a quick drive to all the local beaches and the vibrant, artsy downtown St. Petersburg. The Sweet Spot is a great choice and highly recommended.

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

Owners response: Many thanks for taking the time to write a review. Your thoughtfulness is very appreciated. It was a pleasure having you and your fuzzy children as guests and a homeowner couldn't hope for better guests. Hope to see you in the community and do stay in touch. Warm regards ~ Pat & Tom

We love vacationing in Gulfport. It's a great little gem a lot of people don't know about. This cottage was a new rental as our usual wasn't available but Wow, were we pleased. The owner's description does a great job of covering the basics. Every room in the cottage was immaculate, we took them up on their kind offer to shop and it was so nice to come in road worn and find groceries at regular grocery prices. Thanks Pat & Tom. The owners and their manager will go the extra mile so we felt like we had a personal concierge. The bicycles were a great addition. They are easy, retro cruisers and one had a basket for our more adventerous dog. The cottage is so close to everthing and we never get tired of the bay view. There was even a beach bag and gorgeous chairs for the beach. This was nicer for us than 5 star hotels because of the comfort factor and how close it is to so much. Thanks to our concierges we learned more about the area than we knew. See you next year ~ Frank, Andrea & the pups.
