Charming Bed and Breakfast experience

5 on September 08, 2014

We had an extended two week romantic stay in April, 2014. This waterfront old Florida home was the perfect home away from home to escape the harsh Cape Cod winter. Upon arrival, we were graciously greeted by Lori. She was welcoming as well as knowledgeable and accommodating for our entire stay. The inn was quiet and comfortable. We did not have one of the waterview rooms but it was spacious and had a wonderful ocean breeze as well as a ceiling fan and ac for a couple of the warm days.. Breakfast was casual on the porch with a great view of the water. The location is great for short walks to all Gulfport has to offer. Gulfport is a delightful, diverse town with a range of restaurants, arts, and scenery. Definitely a funky vibe. fyi - our favorite eats and open mike night was Mangia Gourmet. Each day we went to a different beach and were welcomed home to the inn with sherry and snacks. We hope to return soon.

A Great Surprise

We were on our way down when we called Lori about a room. Everything was prepped for that very evening and she was more than helpful guiding us to the best locations/restaurants in Town. I will definitely recommend to anyone traveling in the Tampa area. Great location, great hospitality and great rooms!

What a treat!!

My husband and I celebrated our 1 year anniversary in April 2013 at Sea Breeze. We stayed on the 2nd floor. It was marvelous. The Inn was full, but we did not hear any other guests in our room. It felt very beachy to me, which is exactly what I wanted. Lori was awesome! Breakfasts were awesome! Lots of little restaurants - they were awesome. Everyone was friendly. Absolutely lovely experience.

A neat little village and a great B&B right on the water.

Great Stay in Gulfport!

Warm Welcome

Lori welcomed us at the front door, and was friendly and accommodating. Breakfasts were made to order and delicious, the grounds were well kept and we enjoyed the lovely courtyard outside our private bungalow, which was spacious and comfortable. Lori supplied lots of good information about Gulfport, and we would surely return next year, except that we decided to come a rent a house for part of the winter because we loved this little village that time forgot! Walk to restaurants, shops, beach and dance club. Short drive to St. Pete Beach, St. Pete Pier and lots and lots of antique shops!

A True Florida Treasure

A beautiful property with quiet and unique accommodations, however the location is within walking distance to restaurants, bars, and shopping. And the service is amazing.

Charing, Charming Charming

I absolutely adore the Seabreeze, it is my get- a -way spot. From the minute I walk in the door I feel at home! Lori is the perfect hostesses and makes one incredible breakfast each day. I am an early riser and she takes the time to get up early and make me coffee (ahead o her normal schedule) which is served for the guest in the lobby. Beautiful room, charming decor...I get here every chance I can. Recommended family and friends and they could not thank me enough. Love the location too, just go out the front door and you can walk to boutiques and some incredible one o a kind restaurants or stroll across the street and sit by the bay. I would live here if I could!

Very Relaxing Weekend

3.8 on January 05, 2012

After a very hectic Christmas week we spent a very relaxing New Years at Sea Breeze Manor. When we pulled in Lori was waiting for us on the steps and said "you must be Bob and Linda." Such a great feeling to be welcomed as soon as we arrive! Check in was extreemly simple and the room was larger than expected and very comfortable. Gulfport is a quiet little town but its only 10 to 15 minutes to St. Petersburg and we enjoyed "First Night" downtown.The Dali Museum is also a must. We had great meals at the local restaurants and the residents of Gulfport are very proud of their town. The house itself was beautiful, built in 1922 and restored in the 90's. This was our third time staying at a B&B and was by far the most pleasant and relaxing of our stays. Lori is so laid back and pleasent, and was very tolerant of our arrival 15 mintues past breakfast time. We will certainly go back as we had little time to visit the shops as most of them were closed for the New Years holiday. Thank you Lori for a much needed getaway weekend.

Sea Breeze Manor rescued me!

5 on August 15, 2011

After several days of touring the Tampa Bay area in search of possible places to which I might retire, I was bone weary, disillusioned that the "chain hotels" aren't always what their ads say they are, I "treated myself" to a night at Sea Breeze Manor. Just walking in the front door brought wonderful feelings of relief, quiet and calm. When I saw Aruba suite, I immediately asked to book a second night. Thank goodness it was available! Thanks, Laurie and your staff for rescuing me and sending me home with a wonderful feeling of having been actually on vacation as well as a search and seizure mission! I will be back!
