My boyfriend, my dog and I stayed here for a long weekend. The unit was adorable and clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. I'd love to stay again.

My sister and I spent four days here and truly felt at home. The perfectly sized home, comfy bed, and extremely accommodating host made our stay easy and relaxing. We explored Gulfport restaurants, bars, and parks by foot and were not far from downtown St Pete or beaches. An extra huge thank you to Beth who went above and beyond.

Cozy cottage perfect for two. Excellent location close to the water, in a walkable and friendly neighborhood. Management was very responsive to any of our questions or needs re a few small issues (thank you, Beth). Only big wish -- change Queen bed to a King, but we WOULD stay here again.

My stay at the Flamingo Cottage was fantastic! The cottage was very comfortable and well-equipped for my three month stay this past Winter. Everything was as I expected from my one month stay last year and if there was anything that did need attention Beth was immediately responsive.

The Flamingo Cottage is a wonderful little place in an awesome location. It's modern, comfortable and nicely decorated and outfitted with the best small gourmet kitchen around. If you're staying for a bit longer term you'll be happy to know it's equipped so well you can cook anything/everything. The manager was great; super quick to respond to any questions and very helpful. Absolutely a fabulous place to chill out!

Everything two people needed to spend a week in Florida. Close to the beach, close to shops and restaurants, short drive to downtown. Gulfport is a great little community with lots going on. We would definitely stay there again.

The online photos depict the unit very well. It was very clean and provided everything we needed for our stay. The owners were very accommodating. The cottage is a short walk to several restaurants and an easy drive to a host of beaches, shops and more! Would recommend for someone not wanting to stay right within the hustle and bustle and looking for more of a neighborhood feel.

To anyone who is looking to get some r and r in Gulfport and not have to do a lot of driving and would prefer to be in a neighborhood with quick and easy, walkable access to restaurants, sports bars, the library and beach, THIS is IT!... Beth's Flamingo Cottage is perfect for two people and maybe one or two kids. If you're going in a family group nearby adjoining properties are also available. We certainly enjoyed our stay. The cottage is exactly as shown and there is a cozy garden at the back with a gas grill and full laundry. Beth is readily available via phone for any questions or concerns. <br/><br/>Reserve your spot here now. You will love it and will always return..just pls leave space for me when I would like to visit ??...

This was my second stay at the cottage, and I absolutely love it. Close to everything I needed, comfortable, quiet, and in a gem of a place (Gulfport). So much better than a hotel!

Loved this place. Walking distance to lots to do, great food and beach. Only had 2 very minor issues which I'm sure will be taken of, ( had to put something under coffee pot for it to percolate and lamp chain off in bedroom). Was just as presented and we were very happy with it.

The cottage was roomy enough and very clean. Owner extremely helpful and accommodating. I enjoyed the advantage of a full kitchen in addition to the wonderful restaurants in Gulfport. My favorite restaurant discovered was Mangia Gourmet as it also caters to those who are gluten free and vegan. Even if you are not following one of these eating plans, the food, bakery items, atmosphere and welcoming servers are amazing. One block from the beach and a couple blocks to the main street full of shops and restaurants. Extremely quiet neighborhood. First Friday and third Saturday are the Gulfport art walks. Great location to St. Pete beach, Fort De Soto Park, downtown St. Pete.

My husband and I rented Flamingo Cottage for the entire month of January 2016. We found the cottage to be **** and span and ready for our arrival. We love the property (yard, patio) which is well maintained. We found the appliances clean and in good working order. The gas grill was in good shape. Plenty of storage, good size bedroom. The only down side is the small bathroom and shower. One advantage of this rental is having direct access to the laundry room. The location is perfect, a block from the beach and Gulfport Recreation Center and is just a few blocks from Beach Blvd. and the casino. This was the second time we rented this property and would consider renting again. Also pet friendly. Also has Wi-Fi, and 2 flat screen tvs.

Our daughter lives in Gulfport and was getting married in Oct and wanted us close by,and suggested a rental place. I looked on line and yours met our needs. We didn't get to spend a lot of time at the cottage but we found it very comfortable and clean when we was nice to have a washer and dryer on site too. It is on a quite street and close to the beach which we liked, as we did get to walk down and enjoy it a couple of times. It was nice to have restaurants to enjoy good food. If you want a clean, quite comfortable place to stay Flamingo Cottage is your place. <br/>

We truly enjoyed our stay at Flamingo Cottage. The location was great and close to the beach and shops. The cottage was nicely decorated and made you feel like you were at home. The grounds of Flamingo Cottage were beautiful. Everything was just perfect for us. Cookie, our dog, loved the daily walks to the beach. The bed was extremely comfortable. As an added bonus, it was very close to our new grand baby and his mommy and daddy!

Loved this location for the Vision Sciences conference at St. Pete's Beach. About a 12 min drive to the hotel, with a good grocery store (Publix) about a 10 min drive. One block from the water, and the wonderful little shops and restaurants of Gulfport. Plus, the smartphone app they provide is fantastic for info and checkout. Highly recommended

This was our second stay at Flamingo Cottage. The location is perfect. It's in a little neighborhood just a block from the beach and two blocks from the main street of Gulfport. We love walking --and we walk everywhere, at anytime of night and day. The restaurants are always enjoyable, and it is easy to take your lunch to the beach, whether from "home" or a restaurant. Gulfport is an easy jumping off point to walk Pass-a-Grill beach or head into wonderful St. Pete.

This is a great cottage for a get away for two.Gulf Port is a Fantastic community with great restaurants. I highly recommend Pegs, great service,food,and atmosphere.

For the past 35 years I have literally lived in high rise hotels, many 5 stars...traveling as a speaker/consultant. On vacation my husband and I love quiet, ground floor cottages within walking distance to the beach and cafes. Gulfport is an eclectic, quiet town...plenty of walking streets, parks and the waterfront overlooking St Pete along the bay. We loved the shops, great restaurants, the Farmers market on Tuesdays and cooking in two meals per day. If you are looking for a well appointed clean cottage with all the comforts of home for rest and relaxation, I highly recommend the Flamingo Cottage. We loved our time there and will be back for a longer stay the next time. A great location for day tripping to Sarasota, Tampa, St Pete or Clearwater. <br/>

This was our first trip to Gulfport, Fl & first time renting a cottage from Splashy Ventures. We truly enjoyed Gulfport & surrounding area. Gulfport is a very pet friendly town, we loved the farmer's market on Tuesdays and hanging out at the bars/restaurants. There's also a pier for fishing and a nice park along the beach. As for Flamingo Cottage it was just perfect for two & a small pet. It was very clean, nicely furnished, there was ample kitchen supplies & equipment, the bedroom was large, huge closet, ample drawer space, very comfortable bed. We had direct access to the laundry room which was a huge plus. The property itself was nicely landscaped, well maintained, the cottage is in a perfect location, just a block from the beach, short walking distance to the pier, many restaurants and bars, parks, etc. Gulfport is very pet friendly. The only disappointment in Flamingo Cottage was the very tiny bathroom which was located off the kitchen. The shower should have had a light as it's very dark and there should have been an exhaust fan. My husband and I hated to leave Gulfport and Flamingo Cottage, we truly enjoyed our two weeks and we will probably be returning next year and most definitely stay at Flamingo Cottage.

We has a lovely stay at Flamingo cottage. A small problem with the shower draining was sorted out very quickly by Sally, who was very pleasant and we has long chats with her on several mornings. The cottage was in a good position for all the places we love.

My husband and I stayed in Flamingo Cottage on our trip from Michigan for a wedding in Tampa. I was looking for something away from the chaos of downtown, touristy areas. Gulfport is exactly what I was looking for. We arrived in the middle of the night and were skeptical about the area as we drove through in the dark. In the morning, it was like a curtain had been lifted and revealed this beautiful village. Brick roads, a short walk to a pristine, quiet beach...we couldn't have asked for better. The town of Gulfport is so charming. Little shops, restaurants...everyone is so friendly! <br/>The cottage is small, but that's what we wanted. It was perfect for the two of us. I think it would be quite crowded for more than two. It is clean and well stocked. We didn't cook here, but if we had, it would have been like cooking at home.<br/>Gulfport is close to many busy areas if that's what you're looking for. Clearwater, St. Pete, Tampa...they are a short drive from Gulfport. Grocery stores are close by and convenient.<br/>If you are thinking of staying here, don't hesitate to do so. We loved it so much that we want to move here!

Flamingo is homey and comfortable and totally Florida. Simple but very nice. Everything you could possibly want and you couldn't ask for a better location closer to the beach and the "strip". The only frustration was that all of the information about transportation, restaurants, and other local information was hard to find and not up-to-date. Aside from that, it was a delight.
Stayed 3 days in July, 2014
Very nice!! We would recommend this property, great location close to beach, downtown and places to eat and drink. Only problem was the tv in the bedroom did not work.

We stayed while work was being done on our home. We were happy to find a place that allowed us to bring both our dog AND cat. We were afraid we'd have to board our cat at the vets. It was so nice that the cat didn't even hide away! And we enjoyed our long walks around the neighborhood, allowing our dog to make many new "doggy friends"! Wonderful place!

Chose the Flamingo cottage because of price and location near Gulfport Casino which is dance hall. We were able to take in two dances during our stay. The restaurants with in walking distance were great most with outdoor seating Close to gulf beaches and we found lots to do in St. Petersburg.

Flamingo Cottage was an ideal location for all amenities, everything was so accessible but best of all were the bars and restaurants within easy walking distance. The cottage was delightful and comfortable with the gardens front and back being an added bonus.

The vacation itself was very satisfying except that on the reservation it said 1-4 people. When we arrived we learned that the couch was changed for one we couldn't open and my son had to sleep on an air mattress.That's all.

We had a great time at the Flamingo Cottage and the Gulf Port area. A wonderful place if you have dogs. Everybody loves your dogs. Very nice for eating out you can bring your pets with you and set while you eat. We had a dog stroller which made it very nice. <br/>The only complaint was the bed is a little squeaky.

We loved the Flamingo experience. The cottage was just the right size and pretty handicap accessible since I came with a broken leg. We found he parking lot pretty dark and could have used some hand rails by the shower.
