vacation rental description

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.

Review submitted: August 28, 2014   Date of arrival: August 9, 2014

Rating Details:
I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
I was very happy with the location.
The vacation rental was very dirty.
The property manager was very helpful.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.

Reviewer Comments:
This home is perfect for a family, it is spacious and very nice decorated.
The kitchen is well equiped with a huge fridge. We were traveling with tow little kids and they had a high chair and some tpys available.
The surroundings were nice, just around the corner you had the pier and some local restaurants.
Overall we were happy with the home, unfortanetely it wasnt so clean as we hoped. Some parts in the kitchen felt greasy and there were stains left from the guest before us. Fridge , trash cans, they were not clean.
The home has a odor like wet hound. That was a shame in such nice big house.


Manager responded on 8/21/2014:
The guest called me the day they arrived to say the floor in the kitchen felt greasy. I explained that I had been in it just an hour before they arrived and that the floor had definitely been cleaned and wasn't greasy. The floor is smooth porcelain tile and when there is even a small amount of fine sand on it it can feel slick (as though it is greasy) in certain rubber-soled shoes. I explained this but offered to come by in the morning and re-clean the floor if she would like. She did not take me up on the offer. I also did not notice any odor when I was in the home for several hours doing some minor repairs immediately before they arrived. We also have a Nikken air filter running in the house and it removes odors. I would never allow the home to smell like a wet hound. I'm not fond of dog smell in the first place, much less a wet one.
