About this rental
From the moment you step into this cheerful, tropical 1BR, 1BA getaway, you’ll be whisked away from the hustle and bustle of the everyday. Leave chilly mornings and hum-drum afternoons behind for a romantic retreat in balmy Gulfport, where the charms of Old Florida meet world-class dining, art, and welcoming community.
On the grounds of Flamingo Cottage, you’ll wander among palm trees and venerable oaks, tropical flora and lush green grass. Enjoy sunrises and twilight cocktails on your intimate private patio. Bring your four-legged family members to this pet-friendly haven, where they can run free in the expansive yard.
And when you're ready to dip your toes in the waters, Flamingo Cottage is just a short walk from the beaches and parks of Gulfport’s waterfront.
A DAY AT FLAMINGO COTTAGE
Open your eyes to a tranquil master bedroom. Touches of muted tropical flair offer hints of the paradise outdoors: palm leaf patterns decorate the walls and plush queen bed. Spend a relaxed morning in bed and flip on the HDTV to catch up on morning talk shows.
Sip your coffee on the patio as you map out your day of beachside strolls and gallery visits, then head into the kitchen to whip up a hearty breakfast. With custom cocoa cabinets, Peacock granite counters, and updated appliances, you’ll find an elegant space that will stand up to any recipe. Enjoy a leisurely breakfast at the intimate dining table.
After an active morning on the town, cool off in the A/C of your tropical living room, decorated with signature pops of lime and flamingo pink. Curl up on the sofa and watch your favorite shows.
Off the kitchen, you’ll find a full bath with echoes of the ocean: pebble stone floors, walk-in shower with sea-grey tile, and palm-tree wallpaper offer a restful retreat.
THE CHARMS OF GULFPORT
Your cottage is just steps from the beaches and parks of Gulfport’s Waterfront District—grab beach towels and chairs from the cottage and head to nearby Gulfport Beach. Hop into an impromptu game of beach volleyball, head down Shore Boulevard, and stroll the paths of waterfront Veteran’s Park.
In Gulfport’s thriving artistic and social community, the charms of Old Key West are preserved. Every day brings a fresh adventure and a new experience to explore—think twice-monthly art walks, the weekly Fresh Market, yearly sailing regattas, sandcastle competitions, art festivals, and Formula One boat races.
Catch 4th of July fireworks from the end of your quiet street. The Gulfport restaurant scene flourishes year-round; try a different restaurant each evening, or frequent your favorites in rotation. The many charms of Gulfport are at your fingertips.

My husband and I have stayed in Flamingo Cottage several times over the years. The cottage is tastefully decorated in pink and greens with a Florida/flamingo vibe. The parking is right out front of the patio area. When you walk in you're into the living room with a comfortable sofa, chair and large ottoman (great for storage). Straight away is a table for 4, and more than a sufficient kitchen with all the amenities, there's plenty of storage and is well stocked for cooking. With Flamingo Cottage you also have direct access to the laundry room which has a large washer and dryer. The bathroom has a shower and is tastefully decorated. The bedroom is quite large, the bed is very comfortable, the closet is very big and there is plenty of storage. Both the bedroom and living room have tv's. Flamingo Cottage is located within easy walking distance to the bay/beach, Williams Pier, Veterans Park and many restaurants and shops. I would definitely stay again in Flamingo Cottage as it's one of my favorite rentals.
