About this rental
We can't explain why guests say they relax the minute they enter Dolphin House.
Maybe it’s because the cheerful coastal vibe reminds them that they’ve finally made their escape to the beach. Or because comfortable furnishings and sun-filled spaces make this rental truly feel like home. Or because arriving in Gulfport means entering a vibrant community with a be-who-you-are attitude.
No matter the reason, we love knowing guests can find peace at our 3BR/2BA rental in the heart of the Waterfront District. From its shaded yard to its beach chic entertaining areas, Dolphin House is the ideal landing pad for you, your closest friends or family, and even your pup. Come discover Gulfport's beaches, dining, and jam-packed lineup of events - from farmer’s markets to full-fledged celebrations.
A DAY AT DOLPHIN HOUSE
In all three bedrooms, bright color schemes and tropical décor will fill you with Floridian spirit before your feet even hit the floor. Wake up lazily in the master’s king-size bed or either of the guest room’s queens.
Refresh in either of the two full bathrooms—one designated for the master, the other shared between the two guest rooms. If you need to check in with the real world, there’s a spot for that in the office by the master.
Get the day started by whipping up something fresh. Our fully equipped galley kitchen has plenty of counter space for chopping and prepping, plus a large fridge for all your farmer’s market finds.
Take your breakfast out to the shaded back patio and have a moment to yourself beneath the yard’s tall oak tree, or settle in around the six-person dining table for coffee and conversation.
The kitchen and dining space serve as the heart of this split floor plan home - here, you’ll find the perfect balance between privacy and time together.
Two living areas, one near the two guest bedrooms and another near the master, are chockfull of breezy charm. Opt for board games in the bamboo stalk green front living area or sink into cozy sofas for movie night in the back living area. Both have their own flat-screen TVs.
WHY WE LOVE DOLPHIN HOUSE
Fun, a little bit funky, and totally inviting, Dolphin House takes a cue from Gulfport itself. And it’s no wonder: this rental is tucked in the heart of town, just a 5-minute walk from the Waterfront District.
“Bored” isn’t in Gulfport’s vocabulary. No matter when you make your way here, you’ll find some way to immerse yourself in this unique community. Like GeckoFest, an annual end-of-summer celebration full of groovy jams, quirky street performers, and costume-clad revelers. Or bi-weekly art walks, weekly farmer’s markets, and summer sock hops.
When you’re ready to take a break from downtown’s lively spirit for something a little quieter, pedal one of our complimentary bikes a half-mile to the Pinellas Bike Trail or walk a block to the dog park with your four-legged pal.
Free Wifi. Now with Netflix! Pets welcome with additional fee.
Ring video doorbell onsite.

Perfect in every way.
Dolphin House is perfect in every way. Great location, very clean, comfortable and great location. We walked everywhere. The layout is so perfect for a family or two couples. Our host, Beth, was extraordinary as we had to extend two times and she was so kind and efficient with our request. We highly recommend this lovely home in Gulfport.

Great House near waterfront in Gulfport
Fully equipped home in Gulfport a few blocks from the water. Great host who is very responsive. Nice back porch for outdoor dining. Good water pressure for showers. Very pet friendly. Nice layout of space with room for both of us to work. Loved walking into downtown Gulfport with all its fun attractions like markets, music, and food.
