Holiday Rental House
We can’t explain why guests say they relax the minute they enter Dolphin House. Maybe it’s because the cheerful coastal vibe reminds them that they’ve finally made their escape to the beach. Or because comfortable furnishings and sun-filled spaces make this rental truly feel like home. Or because arriving in Gulfport means entering a vibrant community with a be-who-you-are attitude. No matter the reason, we love knowing guests can find peace at our 2BR/2BA rental in the heart of the Waterfront District. From its shaded yard to its beach chic entertaining areas, Dolphin House is the ideal landing pad for you, your closest friends or family, and even your pup. Come discover Gulfport's beaches, dining, and jam-packed lineup of events—from farmer’s markets to full-fledged celebrations.

No matter the reason, we love knowing guests can find peace at our 2BR/2BA rental in the heart of the Waterfront District. From its shaded yard to its beach chic entertaining areas, Dolphin House is the ideal landing pad for you, your closest friends or family, and even your pup. Come discover Gulfport's beaches, dining, and jam-packed lineup of events—from farmer’s markets to full-fledged celebrations. A DAY AT DOLPHIN HOUSE In all three bedrooms, bright color schemes and tropical décor will fill you with Floridian spirit before your feet even hit the floor. Wake up lazily in the master’s king-size bed or either of the guest room’s queens. Refresh in either of the two full bathrooms—one designated for the master, the other shared between the two guest rooms. If you need to check in with the real world, there’s a spot for that in the office off the master. Get the day started by whipping up something fresh. Our fully equipped galley kitchen has plenty of counter space for chopping and prepping, plus a large fridge for all your farmer’s market finds. Take your breakfast out to the shaded back patio and have a moment to yourself beneath the yard’s tall oak tree, or settle in around the six-person dining table for coffee and conversation. The kitchen and dining space serve as the heart of this split floor plan home—here, you’ll find the perfect balance between privacy and time together. Two living areas, one near the two guest bedrooms and another near the master, are chockfull of breezy charm. Opt for board games in the bamboo stalk green front living area or sink into cozy sofas for movie night in the back living area. Both have their own flat-screen TVs. WHY WE LOVE DOLPHIN HOUSE Fun, a little bit funky, and totally inviting, Dolphin House takes a cue from Gulfport itself. And it’s no wonder: this rental is tucked in the heart of town, just a 5-minute walk from the Waterfront District. “Bored” isn’t in Gulfport’s vocabulary. No matter when you make your way here, you’ll find some way to immerse yourself in this unique community. Like GeckoFest, an annual end-of-summer celebration full of groovy jams, quirky street performers, and costume-clad revelers. Or bi-weekly art walks, weekly farmer’s markets, and summer sock hops. When you’re ready to take a break from downtown’s lively spirit for something a little quieter, pedal one of our complimentary bikes a half-mile to the Pinellas Bike Trail or walk a block to the dog park with your four-legged pal.

We were mislead into thinking the "beach"was 2 blocks away. We were disappointed to find a strip of sand on an inlet.The restaurants were average.The area was surrounded by a lower middle class neighborhood. The house was very comfortable.

About the neighbourhood
The many charms of Gulfport are at your fingertips. Bored isn’t in Gulfport’s vocabulary. No matter when you make your way here, you’ll find some way to immerse yourself in this unique community. Like GeckoFest, an annual end-of-summer celebration full of groovy jams, quirky street performers, and costume-clad revelers. Or bi-weekly art walks, weekly farmer’s markets, and summer sock hops. Or yearly sailing regattas, sandcastle competitions and Formula One boat races. When you’re ready to take a break from downtown’s lively spirit for something a little quieter, pedal one of our complementary bikes to the Pinellas Trail or walk to the dog park with your four-legged pal. Every day brings a fresh adventures and a new experience.
How to get there
From north: i.e., from Tampa, Orlando or St Pete/Clearwater airport. Head south, exit 22nd Ave S, which is exit 19. Keep right at exit, going west on 22nd Ave S. 22nd Ave S becomes Gulfport Blvd at the Gulfport city limits. Turn left on 54th St S. The property will be on the left just after 30th Ave S. Dolphin House is blue with white shutters, a white picket fence and a red front door. You may park in the driveway or on the street. If you park in the drive, please do not block the sidewalk as there is a lot of foot traffic in the area.
