About this rental
Just like the town of Gulfport itself, Palm Cottage blends the beloved charm of Old Florida with modern comfort and convenience. Follow the brick pathway past lush gardens and palms to the front porch of this 2BR, 1BA rental—a vintage-inspired hideaway complete with original pecan wood floors and floods of natural light.
Come discover a lush haven within walking distance of the beach, where mature palms and large oak trees shade a grassy yard and tropical shrubs and flowers add a splash of color.
Palm Cottage is one of three rentals on this property, but you’ll never feel crowded by your neighbors. Bring your four-legged family member along—pups are welcomed and well-loved at our retreat.
A DAY AT PALM COTTAGE
Sunlight and seashore spirit will greet you when you awake. An ocean-hued master suite features a queen-size bed and flat-screen TV, plus a closet, chest of drawers and dressing table to keep you looking your best throughout your stay. The adjacent palm tree-themed guest bedroom has a full-size bed and armoire.
Steps away from both is the recently remodeled bathroom. Refresh with a walk-in shower with pristine subway tile, and get ready for the day ahead at a large granite vanity.
Take your morning cup of coffee to the enclosed sun porch, where you can gaze across the hedges and lawn to a sleepy street. Or flip pancakes and crack eggs in the kitchen—featuring a full suite of new stainless steel appliances and all the cookware and silverware you’ll need—then feast at an elegant wooden dining space for four.
The open design of our gathering space makes it ideal for intimate get-togethers. Serve snacks on the kitchen bar while the group sips wine in a comfortable living room with charming rattan furniture and bold, Floridian patterns. Or set up dessert in the dining room while enjoying your favorite flick on the flat-screen TV in the living space.
A string-lit patio with gas BBQ sets the scene for memorable dinners at home. Grill up your favorites and savor them at the shaded table for four, surrounded by tropical fauna.
LIFE ON THE WATER
Gulfport’s Waterfront District is something special, and at Palm Cottage, you’re in the heart of it. Just three houses away from the beach, you’ll feel the breezes and see the 4th of July fireworks right from our front yard. No busy streets stand between your front door and the warm sands.
There’s almost always something happening in this charming old school community—from art walks to farmers’ markets, sailing regatta to sandcastle contests. And when there’s not, a vibrant dining scene and easy access to the 38-mile Pinellas bike trail lets you create your own excitement.
We make it easy to see the sights with complimentary bike rentals. Just sign a waiver and get exploring.

PALM COTTAGE, a perfect place to stay
My hooman and I spent a glorious 2 weeks in Gulfport, Fl, staying in Palm Cottage which is within walking distance to the beach, the Gulfport Recreation Center, the Casino, Williams Pier, Veterans Park and the many shops and fine restaurants Gulfport has to offer. Palm Cottage is just a few minutes drive to the Gulf Coast, St. Pete and St. Pete beach. The best part, for me, is that Gulfport is pet friendly, they love dogs. Palm Cottage is clean, cheerfully and tastefully decorated, the kitchen well stocked right down to the wine glasses, both bedrooms are comfortable and have plenty of storage for clothes and other miscellaneous items, the bathroom has a walk in shower, plenty of storage, towels, etc. The living area is tastefully decorated with comfortable seating, plenty of room for entertaining plus an adjacent dining area with a table that will seat 6 comfortably. My hooman and I immensely enjoyed the screened-in front porch in the early mornings and evenings while my having a special treat and my hooman having her coffee. The property has a beautiful outdoor patio area complete with gas grill, outdoor table and chair and lighting. The property itself is beautifully landscaped and has plenty of grass for me to water. The property manager, Beth, thought of everything one could possibly need and if there was any issue or need she responds immediately. My hooman and I truly enjoyed our stay in Palm Cottage and will be staying there again. Yogi (toy Pomeranian)
