This cottage was the perfect location and size for me and my boyfriend. It was very clean and had everything we needed. The screened in porch was great and I loved that the beach was within walking distance. I would definitely stay here again in the future.

This was a great rental for my husband, myself & 2 medium size dogs. The town is quaint & super friendly & welcoming. There are more restaurants & shops to explore in a 4 block walk than we had time for. It was wonderful to arise early and walk the dogs a short block to the bayside front street. Also very safe for late strolls. Can't take your dogs on the beach but can walk the sidewalks lining the beachside municipal park. Farmers market and crafts every Tuesday in late spring/summer. Everything you need and more-even dishes for the fur kids & coffee grinder! The rear enclosed patio is a lovely place for mornings & evenings. Wonderful to have free access to laundry. Beth was great at responding promptly to my questions. The bed is a full size but adequate room for us & comfy. Everything was very clean & efficient. The landscaping is beautiful. There is not a fenced area for the dogs to relieve themselves but there is a fenced in "front porch" area which contains some beautiful landscaping & a small brick entry patio. The dogs enjoyed sunning themselves in that area & spying through the fence. We did a lot of traveling for day visits with the dogs & this was conveniently located. No construction noted on nearby streets as stated in previous reviews. Wifi & cable worked great. Would definitely return.

My husband and I stayed at the Fish Camp for a week and were happy with our accommodations. The kitchen had everything we needed and the location was great!

Charming little apartment which is nicely decorated. Clean space, non-smoking and no sign anyone had smoked in the facility. Pet friendly but no sign pets had been there. Large screened in porch which is set in a shaded garden. Fully appointed kitchen with everything you'll need to cook meals, but not a lot of counter space. Tiny bright bathroom with shower stall. Double bed. Easy walk to Gulfport beach which has changing rooms, bathrooms, benches, gazebo and shade trees. We also visited Fort deSoto which has sugar sand beaches on the gulf. A short, easy drive to the Dali Museum and Chihully exhibits in St. Pete. Don't miss the market in Gulfport on Tuesday or the many restaurants and shops. The only real down-side to the visit was the road construction which is going on all through historic Gulfport with road closures. One of the house's parking spots full of a pile of rocks and a pallet of paving stones, necessitating some creative, cooperative parking for all three sections of the property. This has been going on since Jan '17 and shows no sign of being finished soon.

This place is a gem in a lovely location. Only downside this year was the dust and noise from construction. Short walk to the beach; lots of great restaurants and shops within easy walking and more within a quick drive.

My husband and I really enjoyed our time at this cute retreat so close to all the amenities of Gulfport but in a nice quiet spot.

Everything was great. too many remotes, especially for someone who is not<br/>tech savvy, wanted to watch news channel. couldn't get TV's to work, that was the only problem.

It was great, Beth and Terry were so informative and accommodating. I wish I could have stayed longer, and cannot wait to book with them again!<br/><br/><br/><br/>

Cozy, quiet, safe, laid-back. Tropical setting, nice breezes rustling through the palms, with a hint of an Australian pine tree, whispering in the background.<br/> This rental, is in a safe clean neighborhood. I am a native to the area. To me this rental is a good starting point, to every activity you would want to go experience. I would buy this place for myself, if I was able. You will not be disappointed.

Fun experience! Gulfport was a fun time, Beth provided bikes and beach chairs for the adorable Fish Camp Cottage which had everything we needed to be comfortable. It is a short drive to St. Pete Beach and Treasure Island. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay....

Very comfortable small efficiency. Nicely decorated and clean. Well-stocked kitchen. Warning to anyone who is above average height/weight: the tiny bathroom would be challenging! The grounds are well kept and the unit has a private screened porch. It is a very short walk to the bay or Beach Blvd. (shops/restaurants). I have been visiting Gulfport for the past 8 years - it has an "Old Florida" look, laid back vibe and is very dog-friendly and walkable, which is important to me because I like to travel with my four-legged best friend. Gulfport is a close drive to St. Pete & Tampa and all they have to offer but I spend most of my time chilling out in town. This year I took my dog to the off leash dog beach at Ft. DeSoto State Park and she had a blast! This was my first time renting from Splashy Ventures and Beth was a pleasure to deal with - responsive and efficient and when my original stay got washed out by Tropical Storm Colin I thought I would lose my payment but she applied it to another week, which I appreciated very much! I would definitely rent from them again.

This was our third stay at Fish Camp and probably won't be our last. It fits our needs perfectly as a pied-a-terre in Gulfport while my wife and I visit our son. The location is great, with easy access to everything Gulfport offers including the waterfront, great restaurants, the wonderful, friendly library, etc. The management (Beth) is terrific. Fish Camp itself, while quite small, is clean and neat and works efficiently for two people. The generous screen porch with access to a grill is a pleasant amenity for lounging and eating meals. We would recommend Fish Camp to friends looking for an efficiency in the St Petersburg area.

My grown daughter and I stayed a weekend here. It's in one of my favorite towns, Gulfport, which has a small-town artsy vibe and is 15 minutes from St Pete's or Pass a Grille gulf beaches. It has it's own sandy inland waterway beachfront park with volleyball courts and picnic benches and places to plop your own chairs for sun, and a nice walk to stroll along the bay, day or night, plus the old casino--no gambling, just dancing. <br/>The apt is tiny but has a full kitchen(and is well-equipped even for the serious cook) and shares access to a landscaped and quiet grill and patio dining area with two other units. The big bonus here is that this tiny apartment has it's own large screened porch which is literally an additional living room complete with table and chairs and sofa. We loved this space and entertained guests here, grilling on that adjacent patio. Management is excellent and has several Gulfport properties, all I've stayed in are well-maintained and decorated with lots of color and charm. You are in a residential street but only one block from the main beach and restaurants and two blocks from Beach Blvd, Gulfport's little shopping street. Tuesday Market is a bonus there bringing stalls of fresh produce,eggs,and honey, trinkets, clothes and art. <br/>I recommend this little apartment for a nice getaway without the high rises and traffic.

This place was perfect for us...big screened in linnae, very well appointed kitchen, free washer/dryer on site, attractive and comfortable. It was everything we could have hoped for, and more! Oh, and a block away from the beach! Need I say more??

Excellent--just would have liked a few beach chairs to use to avoid fees on the beaches

Loved the location. Great place to vacation with a dog- Gulfport is very walkable and friendly. The cottage is tiny but the lovely screened porch helps a lot

Rental is well stocked...better than any I've ever been affiliated with. Location was great for us. Walkable to quirky costal town. 2 nice bike trails close to rental...Pinnelas & Fort DeSoto & Par 3 golf course nearby. Terrific shopping at St. John's Pass was about 10 mi. The owner was personable & quick to respond!

The Studio was very clean and, surprise, not only did it have WiFi access but a printer/scanner too. The shower is quite tight not for a 6'5" 250 lb person but tub.<br/>While small it is very fully furnished in the kitchen. Location is great for enjoying Gulfport and driving access to the beaches and St. Pete downtown.

We had 5 people in our group, but since the Sand Dollar can only accommodate up to 4 people, we rented the Fish Camp for our friends. It was fantastic. Our friends were visiting from England and they said they enjoyed the accommodations. It even gave them an idea of purchasing a similar property as a winter vacation home.

The Fish camp was perfect and had everything one could need! Location was 1 block from water and a short walking distance to downtown Gulfport. I will rent again on next trip providing it's available!

We had a wonderful time in Gulfport! We especially liked the proximity of the apartment to the business district. <br/><br/>

My wife and I spent ten days at Fish Camp, and we were perfectly satisfied. The place provided just what we needed and nothing more at a reasonable price. Then screened porch in the back is a definite plus, but we managed fine when it was too cold to sit outside. The only drawback is the double bed, which is unfortunately tight against the wall and my wife found a little musty. Fish Camp's location is ideal in a pleasant neighborhood and within easy walking distance of the beach and downtown restaurants. We really enjoyed spending time in and exploring Gulfport.

My wife and I now have stayed in three different Gulfport spaces owned and cared for by Elizabeth S. Each has been well cared for and thoughtfully supplied. Fish Camp has been the smallest, and yet it had everything we needed and, additionally, a screened in back porch that looked out on a lovely garden area -- delightful for lunches and breakfasts. We both highly recommend any property of Elizabeth's, and her as a temporary landlady. She cares and it shows. 5 Stars on all counts!<br/>

My husband and I stayed at this sweet, cozy, great location cottage this Spring. It was the perfect place for our visit to Gulfport. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The manager was wonderful to work with. She was so sweet to bring us two bikes by which were so helpful. We are hoping to get the chance to stay here again soon...

Quiet neighborhood and convenient location to explore Gulfport. Combination lock rather than a keyed lock was very convenient. Screened Florida room at back of shot-gun style apartment was a nice place to relax and/or work. Interior living area is a bit cluttered with electronics and cords but wi-fi appreciated. Kitchen well equipped for our short stay. Bed against the wall a bit claustrophic for our liking. Bathroom amenities were a nice touch.

I like the tiny cozy efficiency! The location is great and it really makes me feel like home. The only shortcoming, if I have to say, is that it is very small, but big enough for two persons.

Fish Camp gives you everything you need for a couple. It would be awkward (in my opinion) for two couples as the only bathroom is off the bedroom. It has a huge screened porch and we spent a lot of time reading in there when it rained. Fish Camp had everything we needed for our stay.

Really enjoyed spending 3 weeks recently in Gulfport. Fishcamp was a fine efficiency type of apt.: clean, comfortable, and a super location. It has a very large screened in porch in the rear which was a nice spot to read in or just hang out. Thanks for the stay.

I highly recommend the Fish House to Rent In Gulfport, Florida. The rental is very comfortable and clean with all modern amenities included in the low rental price. It is within walking distance to the beach and many cool local restaurants and entertainment. I could have stayed forever.
