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.

This cheery, comfortable flamingo-themed cottage is a great spot to get away or to work away, if you need to. Its kitchen is set up well to cook-in, but there are so many wonderful restaurants within walking distance. The neighborhood felt safe and consistent. The digital concierge was a fun, helpful touch for settling in and feeling comfortable with the place. I’d come back in a heartbeat.

Clean & convenient
We loved the location because it was close to Eckerd College (visiting) and down town St Pete. We walked once to the park/‘beach’. A min or two walk. The bed was pretty comfy. Would like to have had one more extra pillow that was thicker. It was nice they had a box fan there. My daughter likes to sleep with a white noise. It also drowned out the sound of people in apartment A arguing. I did let the agency know about the arguing. The place was super clean. A full-size refrigerator and kitchen available for cooking if needed. The bathroom is tiny but was happy with the cleanliness. The agency let us know the day we checked in there would be someone out to fix the shower the next day. We didn’t know there was a problem because it was fine for us. I would have preferred for them to wait until we had checked out. We were only staying two or three nights. I didn’t like that the worker had a code to get inside. Not sure how you can delete a code from a-far!? I have a door code at my own home & it’s not simple to change/add or delete numbers. Maybe their door code is different? It left me a little uneasy. I guess I could have asked her not to send him? The agency was very quick w/replies.- Anonymous from Davidson, Posted: 11/21/2019

Flamingo Cottage 5 Star Review
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.- Anonymous from MONROE, Posted: 2/3/2016We enjoyed seeing Rita again and hope they can return.

Faboulous Two Week Stay
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.

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.- Anonymous from MONROE, Posted: 1/20/2015

Flamingo Cottage was perfect!
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!
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.
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.

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.

Had a great time
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.- Anonymous from Noblesville, Posted: 6/19/2014
Much needed time away
We had a wonderful time. It was the perfect time to go....warm after PA winter but not hot. Lovely little town feeling and very friendly people. I can't wait to go back.- Anonymous from Drums, Posted: 6/2/2014
Perfect in Pink
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.- Anonymous from London, Posted: 5/10/2014
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.- Anonymous from Memramcook, Posted: 4/30/2014
Wonderfull Days in Gulfport
Great Times- Anonymous from Brueggen, Posted: 4/21/2014
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.
The only complaint was the bed is a little squeaky.- Anonymous from Muncie, Posted: 3/13/2014
A couple of weeks in Paradise
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.- Anonymous from Atchisin, Posted: 12/1/2013
Gerat dass at Flamingo Cottage
We had a great time at Flamingo Cottage, almost everything was perfect (except the sleeping Couch was unconfortable...).
To the Beach just a short walking distance and a playground for our kids.
Thank you very much.
