The weather was cool but the rental was warm, cozy and beautiful. It was perfect and we really used the binder with all the area activities listed. Thanks so much for the timely emails and info on area happenings. We had a wonderful time walking in the nature preserve and in the friendly neighborhood. Just loved this place and will definitely rent it again.<br/>

Harbor Mist was a great choice for our two weeks in FL visiting friends and family. Everything we needed was in the house. The kitchen is well-equipped; towels, including beach towels, are plentiful; there are sand chairs and umbrellas in the storage room outside. Beds are comfortable, even with my bad back, and the bed linens are lovely. <br/><br/>The beaches are nearby: Pass a Grille, and the beaches north of there are easily accessible. Ft. de Soto is always a delight, a short drive. <br/><br/>Restaurants are plentiful, both in Gulfport and at the beaches. We enjoyed early morning shelling, and late afternoon beach time to avoid the worst heat, and be there for sunsets. We also were delighted with sunset-watching at Gulfport, where there are benches and adequate parking.<br/><br/>The house was perfect: near beaches and shopping, pleasant neighborhood for walking-- large marina at the end of the street. Recommend, for cozy, pleasant stay.

We totally enjoyed our stay in Gulfport. The house was comfortable inside and out, clean and well appointed. We liked the proximity to town and to the beaches.

My wife was a little worried about the neighborhood. It turned out OK. Nice distance to Marina and the downtown Gulfport area. All of the pillows and spreads were in a pile in the middle of the beds when we got there. We didn't find out till two days later that the sheets were in the drier. Nice little house.... great backyard. Thank you for letting us bring our little dog.

A quaint home tucked away in a charming neighborhood, 20 minutes away from world class beaches, art, nature, and all that Florida has to offer. This is a well managed and updated rental in southern Florida.

We really enjoyed staying at Harbor Mist. It was an adorable place, very well maintained, and very comfortable. The backyard was charming and the outdoor shower came in handy! We enjoyed using the grill as well. I would definitely recommend it, and we'd be happy to go back again!

when we arrived on Friday, Jan 13th we were delighted to find the house clean and prepared for us. We were blown away by the back yard with the atmosphere of a garden surrounded by bushes and trees. We had come to see three new great-granddaughters. We planned to baptise them(I am an ordained mimister).We had all our family on sunday afternoon, with a catered lunch and the yard was perfect for this. Also the yard was ideal for relaxation. I am 84 years old and my wife is 83 so this was a bonus for us. We are totally satisfyed with our stay.

The house was lovely! Very charming with everything you could need. We brought our bikes with baskets and it was perfect for riding down to the strip of bars and restaurants with our chihuahuas in tow. Security deposit was refunded very quickly as well. I would definitely book again!

Harbor Mist is a wonderful cottage with everything you could ever need and then some!!! Stayed here many times in the past and while driving down, I said "The only thing Harbor Mist needs,to be perfect, is a hammock!" We arrived, looked out at the deck, and there was a hammock!!! Beth and crew are awesome! Stayed at her properties for years now and can't imagine staying anywhere else. Gulfport is fun- great restaurants, cool Artwalk, lovely views! Dog friendly house and town and a great dog beach at Fort DeSoto! Thanks for another perfect stay Beth!!!!!!

This is the second year at Harbor Mist. As before the house was clean, comfortable and well equipped. The location is convenient to everything in Gulfport. We had a wonderful month!

We picked this location because it was centrally located to the areas we wanted to spend time in. Gulfport is a very unique town, with lots to do. The restaurant recommendations were spot on. We enjoyed our time in the area and liked being able to come back later in the day and relax at the house. The house was very clean when we arrived. We would recommend to anyone looking for a great location in this part of Florida.

I was nervous because we usually stay in a hotel and hadn't yet done a VRBO. But, we were so pleasantly pleased with everything.

We were pleasantly surprised with the little bungalow. It was nicely furnished, comfortable, clean, the kitchen was well furnished with everything you could use; we enjoyed the large screen tv (it lost signal a few times but came back on after a few minutes); the mattress in the master bedroom was very comfy; we enjoyed the keyless front door entry - didn't have to fuss with keys; the back yard was a little smaller than it looked on the photo but was still good for our dog; the backyard was very plushly landscaped with large palms, rubber trees, ferns, a little pond with plants and lots of other plants to look at; the grill was nicer than ours at home and we used it a few times. We were happy with the bungalow and would recommend it to friends or relatives.

This little bungalow was just perfect. Nice quiet neighborhood, close to great restaurants. We think Gulfport is just the best kept secret around. We have rented St. Pete Beach and nearby for three years in the past but Gulfport is the only place we want to be now. The home was spotless, no mold, more appliances than the average home, all new and the best brands, full size washer/dryer, great beds, nice furniture. Can't compliment Elizabeth enough. We will be back!

Harbor Mist is a wonderful cottage that has everything you could possibly need and then some. Beautiful landscaping and secluded backyard is perfect for relaxing with coffee in the morning. Interior is nicely decorated and very comfortable! Beth makes sure everything is perfect and is great to work with.... We have stayed in several of her properties for vacation over the past 8 years and she's always great to work with! Her places are dog friendly but the only way you know other pups have stayed is comments in the guestbook and it's only a 20 minute drive to Fort DeSoto dog beach! Gulfport is a lovely town with wonderful restaurants, twice a month Art Walks, and really friendly people.... a perfect Florida vacation spot!!!!!!

Delightful property with beautiful yard and landscaping. Decor was colorful yet serene. Freshly painted with comfortable beds and furnishings. Large kitchen and dining area with a nice selection of cookware, dishes and serving pieces. The only downside is there is only one bathroom, however the outside shower was a great option and was utilized by our group. Property was well maintained and the neighborhood was quiet. Just a few steps from the marina and nature trails too. We highly recommend and hope to stay there again ourselves.

We had a very enjoyable stay. The notebook containing instructions and brochures about local "things to do" was most helpful. The description of the property was accurate. It was very clean and well maintained. We would definitely recommend the Harbor Mist to a friend or relative. The local restaurants were all very good. Breakfast at Stella's was fantastic! We like to walk and they were within a comfortable walking distance of the cottage...yet we were far enough away from the bustle. We rented Kayaks from Kayak Nature Adventures, just down the street from the cottage. Explored Clam Bayou and had a great time! <br/>We did have trouble finding the property management office for dropping off our check-in and check-out sheets. We went to the address and it looked like someone's vacation cottage. We did not see a "drop box". Also, per the instructions on the refrigerator, there was a "green tub" for paper recycling but there was not one of those at the property....just the blue tub for plastics.

It was the first time we experienced a vacation in a little house like that. We found that it was nice the way it's divided and a lot of space to do different kind of things.<br/>

Very nice place with great airco and internet. Plenty of space for the two of us.<br/>Gulfport beach close by as several restaurants. Quiet neigbourhood.

When we arrived the house was spotless. The website is very accurate. There are more than enough kitchen gadgets, pots and pans, etc. Even stuff to bake should you be so inclined. Beth and her team were great to work with. Gulfport is like a mini Key West -- we loved it. Lots of great restaurants and a lovely little beach. We are coming back again....

My husband and I spent three months at Harbor Mist during our transition from CT to FL. It was a perfect place to unwind from the pressures of selling our home and moving out--quiet, clean, well-appointed, and completely comfortable for the two of us, even given the long duration of our stay. The private backyard was a haven for us and for our two cats as well. We loved Gulfport's very casual, friendly atmosphere, and we especially enjoyed the easy walk to Beach Blvd. with its shops, restaurants, & outdoor markets. I loved the little Clam Bayou preserve at the end of Miriam St., too--it's right on the FL Great Birding trail. More dining & shopping are a short, convenient drive away, including the great Grand Central area of St. Pete. We came here on a whim...and we like it so much we're now shopping for a home.

My husband and I stayed here while visiting our son, who had recently moved to Gulfport. I have nothing but praise for this cute little cottage. It met our needs perfectly, was very clean, and the instructions/directions for everything were helpful. (The only negative is that I could not get the wireless internet to recognize the password. But I wasn't there to browse the internet anyway.)

Close to the beach, and shops. Lots of walking shops within walking distance.

Lovely home, just small bedrooms that could use smaller or creative designed furniture and the cleaning that the "tenants" are responsible for was very evident, especially in the dishes. But overall, was a very pleasant stay and would stay again.

Harbor Mist was a very nice mid sized rental. Everything was in good working condition and well stocked with every that most people on vacation would need. The landscaping was very nice like a tropical oasis. The back yard has a large new gas grill and has lots of shade trees. House was located near many main roads and close to shopping and local attractions. We were very pleased with our stay and will rent Harbor Mist again if we stay in St. Petersburg.
