About this rental
As you enter the front door, you’ll find yourself immediately in the comfortable and spacious living room, furnished in the soothing colors of sand and sea. Drop into one of the cozy armchairs or curl up on the sofa to stream your favorite show, movie, or anticipated sporting event on TV w/WiFi. A ceiling fan keeps things cool.
The Florida room looks over the privacy fenced backyard and offers upgraded lounge furniture. Bring out your book, or your mobile device, and maybe even a tall glass of lemonade to enjoy the peace and quiet.
Cooking & Dining
We hope you enjoy cooking! The kitchen has been thoughtfully updated with all the most popular amenities. You’ll find stainless steel appliances, including a French-door refrigerator, solid-surface counters, and a lovely coordinated tile backsplash. With plenty of cabinet and counter space as well, there’s no doubt the kitchen will be well-loved during your stay. A convenient peninsula bar seats 3.
The dining room offers the opportunity to bring back the tradition of a family dinner. With a natural bead board ceiling and seating for 6, you’ll enjoy a warm and welcoming vibe in a space that naturally invites you to linger over after-dinner conversation.
Sleeping Accommodations and Bathrooms
The Peaceful Parrot offers two bedrooms with a shared full bath. The first bedroom features a queen bed, with plenty of storage for your clothes and luggage, and a ceiling fan.
The second bedroom has a daybed-style double bed, with built in storage and coordinating decor in soothing colors. The shared bathroom has a tub/shower.
The Parakeet features its own private bedroom, a bath with a walk-in shower and the washer/dryer.
No smoking inside. No exceptions.
A pet may be permitted with prior permission and payment of additional fee.
At the edge of the Marina district, enjoy easy access to the water from this unique property. The Peaceful Parrot is a 2BR, 1BA home, and the Parakeet is a separate 1BR, 1BA cottage. It’s the perfect arrangement for friends or family traveling together but still seeking privacy. They are not rented separately.
The Peaceful Parrot has gone through two expansions and now offers both a dedicated dining room and a Florida room. Since vacations should include all family members, your pet is welcome to join in the fun here.
Gulfport has been called a lot of things, but boring isn’t one of them! It has been referred to, in no particular order, funky, eclectic, artsy, charming, progressive, welcoming, warm, and even weird. It proudly accepts all of it!
The downtown is small, but exceptionally welcoming. You won’t find any chain stores, or parking meters, but you will find beautiful old oak trees dripping in Spanish moss. And you will definitely find small-town friendliness and warmth.
Beach and Shore Boulevards are at the heart and soul of the historic downtown area, which is directly situated on scenic Boca Ciega Bay.
Those downtown shops are all independently owned and operated and feature works of local artists and artisans, as well as clothes, books, gifts, home decor, and more.
A concentration of more than a dozen restaurants in the village has made Gulfport a premier dining destination. You can find anything from a burger to find dining.
Make sure you’re here for our bi-monthly Art Walk, on the first Friday and third Saturday or each month. And while you’re at it, grab your grocery bags and head over to Tuesday Fresh Market for fresh fruits and veggies, breads, cheese, seafood, honey, plants and more, all from local vendors.
Gulfport is a beach town with something for every season, every reason, and every visitor.

A cozy, convenient Gulfport cottage with comforts of home
I came down for a wedding in St Pete and stayed an extra week for some R&R. In addition to walking around the Clam Bayou most mornings, I visited beaches nearby, enjoyed good food from restaurants in the Gulfport historical district, and got to know the broader area. It was a great launch pad for a variety of activities and also for enjoying a leisurely breakfast or homemade dinner. The furniture was comfortable and the kitchen had newer appliances and all the essentials. When I had a problem with the washing machine, Beth got it resolved the same day. A great option, minutes from St Petersburg as well as the inter coastal, with all the comforts of home.
