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.
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.

Great place! Great location! Just a short walk to O'Maddy's and the Waterfront, 5 minutes or so. Beth was great to work with as well!

Let me start by saying that this house is in a perfect location; walking distance (couple blocks) from entertainment (O'Maddy's) and shopping. The house has EVERYTHING you would need to have in order to be comfortable. The kitchen is stocked and the beds (my pet peeve) were great. They even provided nice, thick towels; not the cheesy ones a lot of properties provide. It was extremely clean and my wife and I are already discussing planning another visit. Thank you for thinking of the little things that made my family and I have a great getaway.

This is our fourth year at the Dolphin House. As always, everything was perfect. Just as advertised, the house was immaculate upon arrival and there were nice upgrades to the living and bedrooms. The best restaurants and shops in the area are literally a stone's throw from the house. We'll be back for sure.

This house has everything we need
Stayed February, 2018
We've stayed at this property six times during January over the years. It is spacious, well-located, well-appointed, and dog friendly. Good restaurants and a nice beach (Boca Ciega Bay) two blocks away.

Had a great time with family in this spacious villa. Was a perfect place to cookout, walk down to the beach, and just enjoy my family.

This rental property was beautiful!!! Extremely clean, kitchen fully stocked with everything you need (and more) to cook! The open floor plan was set up perfectly for relaxing, entertaining and vacationing. 2 bedrooms and living room in the front of the house and 1 bedroom and open concept living/dining area in the back. 2 bathrooms - I loved that the 2nd bathroom wasn't part of the back bedroom (altho it was right next to it) so it was always available for use. We had 6 adults + addl guests some nights and we were VERY comfie! Property Mgrs were very accommodating with top quality blow up beds for our guests that decided to stay overnight. It was 3 blocks from excellent restaurants, bars (with great bands) and shops so there was no need to drive! I live in town but staycationed with my out of state friends as we celebrated all of our 50th Bdays - we had a ball!

The house was even better than expected. Very close to water and shops/restaurants. Very clean and maintained. Ample parking and great landscaping. They thought of everything when it comes to the comforts of home. Nicely loaded kitchen, comfy beds/couches, lots of dinning seating and outside sitting. Great property
Stayed August, 2017
The house is adorable and in a PRIME location. Gulfport is charming and the people so nice. All of the beaches are just minutes away, so we went to St. Pete, Madeira, and Pass-a-Grille--each different, but still awesome. Day trip to Sarasota and a Rays game at night. Finally, St. Petersburg is really fun and hip and urban! Lots of good food and breweries! It was a pleasant surprise.
