We stayed at the Sea Breeze for only one night, but it was bliss! A place of great character, and such a nice change from the standard corporate offerings. We had contacted Lori in advance to check that she was happy to accommodate our 11 yo son, and she suggested the Aruba Suite on the ground floor looking out towards the sea. The room suited us perfectly, with a bed put up for our son in the lounge area and us in the bedroom proper. It was great having the separate loo as well as the bathroom too. We had everything we needed on hand, and the big communal lounge was a great space (no-one else was in the main house when we stayed so it felt like we had the whole thing to ourselves). Some really nice touches, like the complimentary beverages, port (good quality) and sherry. It was one of those places where nothing seemed too much trouble.
Gulfport was quite a revelation, a real community tucked away from the usual modern sprawl that is Florida. Restaurants etc all walkable, some nice quaint shops (though the woman at the post office was the most miserable person we met all trip). Breakfast next day was really nice, Lori seems happy to whizz up whatever anyone wants. It was great chatting to her. Wish we could have stayed longer - highly recommended for anyone who wants to experience the old Florida.
