House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, Sleeps 5 (up to 4 adults)
Our charming family-owned house is in a quiet, well-located neighborhood in Gulfport near the Marina. Whether you're coming to the Bay area for business or pleasure, it serves as a nice temporary home and a cheaper alternative to a hotel.
The house is down the block from the Gulfport Marina. Downtown Gulfport is a short drive/long walk away. St. Pete Beach, downtown St. Petersburg and Tropicana Field can be reached within 15 minutes.
Awesome location and beautiful home

About Ryan Kelly
This home was originally purchased by my aunt and uncle in 1997. When they passed away we decided to keep it in the family. We make it available to rent most of the year, and get down there it enjoy it ourselves when we can.

Awesome location and beautiful home
We chose to have a family vacation for our Christmas and new years! The house and location were perfect for our family of 3 & 3 furbabies. The accommodations of the owners and response time was beyond our expectations!! I recomend this home to anyone, the location was prime for traveling anywhere from tarpon springs to sarasota!! The dog beaches are also a great addition to the area and very much near by..
Angler's Paradise! Bring your boat!
I've spent two months here so far and will stay through the end of July (at least). What a great location for fisherman and outdoor enthusiasts!
The house is very large for a 2 bed house. It also has an extra room with a desk, chairs, and a couch that I use as an office.
the best part for me, as a full time fishing guide, is that I can keep my boat here. It has a driveway that goes all the way down the side and behind the house where I can keep my boat hitched up to my truck all the time. And, if I need to leave the boat behind, I can lock it behind a gate behind the house. And... it is literally 7 doors down from the best marina in all of Pinellas county!
Great location, great house, and the owners are very reasonable and attentive. This is a great place to stay, especially if you're a fisherman and have a boat!
We had a great time staying here. The location was perfect for our family. The owners and caretaker were enjoyable to work with. The Marina was just down the street and we enjoyed walking and viewing all the boats. The house itself was very nice. Our only issues would be that the bathroom is in need of updating (cracked paint,ants,and very dated) and the oven doesn't cook evenly. We just grilled and used the stove top instead. The bedrooms were spacious and comfortable. Fabulous location for running into St. Pete or over the bridge to Tampa.
Overall we would highly recommend this home, much more comforatble than a hotel.
My husband arrived loaded down with luggage and golf clubs and a very tight schedule to get into the house, store the luggage and get to a golf course to meet me and another couple for a tee time. Oscar was very prompt in meeting him and he actually beat the rest of us to the course. He and I returned after dark and very quickly got settled in the house for our week long stay. The house was clean, uncluttered and offered up everything we could have asked for. It was well equipped and throughout our stay the only things I looked for and couldn't find were tongs to turn the bacon and a spatula. During a shopping trip we managed to find these items and have added them to the kitchen inventory. We also left some canned goods that we were unable to consume. It would be nice to find something to eat upon arrival for anyone who arrives too late to pick up groceries and doesn't yet know where to get something to eat. Because it was late when we arrived, we didn't use the sunroom and so we didn't notice the extensive binder of local information that had been compiled for guests including takeout menus. The bed was comfortable and the rooms were spacious for a couple. The kitchen appliances were in good working order and easy to use.
Our only complaint - fairly minor would have to do with the shower. While the water temperature was very good it was impossible to adjust the spray to anything more than a very narrow stream. The shower walls are showing some signs of moisture damage from the shower and the humidity. A venting fan and a widespray shower head would make a big difference. We departed after 8 days,wishing the time had not gone by so quickly and looking forward to a return visit. We walked the area a bit and found the bus service easily accessible but having come to do as much golfing as possible, we rented a vehicle and found this location was very convenient to accessing golf courses because of proximity to 19. We wished we had more time to sightsee as there is so much to do but the purpose of our visit; relaxation and lots of golf was completely fulfilled.
