“A Hidden Gem - great cottages”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2011

We went to Florida for a family wedding with a couple days set to ourselves as a couple. We chose the Sea Breeze as our location because we would have our own cottage and get breakfast. We arrived a day late, due to airplane delays, and the owner had wine waiting for us. Our cottage was separate from the house, was furnished with a love seat, chairs, great 4 poster bed, full bathroom with tub and roll-in shower, and many decorations tastfully added to make the cottage attractive. We were close to beaches, walked around Gulfport window shopping, and ran to local beaches. The house had port, sherry, a fridge stocked with soft drinks and water. We had time to sit on the long front porch relaxing. The breakfast the next morning was amazing and we enjoyed hearing our host's work history in Washington DC. While driving the main street for dinner, we were amazed at how tightly packed and touristy the hotel/motel scene was. It made it all the better to have our private cottage to come back to for the evening.

Room Tip: Ask for the cottage that is separate from the main house.

We first discovered the Sea Breeze back in 2003-2004. We loved it so much, and always said we would be back, and we finally were able to last year for our 13th anniversary. We did not get to meet Lori the first time around, as she wasn't the owner at that time, so we were pleasantly surprised to see in 2010, that the inn was EVEN BETTER than before! Lori makes you feel like you are her houseguest, and the whole town is just incredible. If you stay, make sure you dine at Backfin Blue, they have the best crab cakes anywhere! And, of course, Lori's breakfasts are to die for! We have stayed in the Jamaica room and the Bermuda room, and cannot wait to return! It is great to stay somewhere for a vacation where they understand that indeed, the little things DO matter!

Room Tip: Just talk to Lori!

We rented all 6 rooms for a long weekend in October 2010 and had a wonderful time. We got married on the dock across from the Inn and held our small reception in the back patio. We really could not have asked for a better experience. Lori is an excellent hostess and went out of her way to make sure we had every single thing we needed the entire weekend. Our family loved the rooms and the location. The food was yummy and the morning views and laid back atmosphere were awesome. We can't say enough good things about the great people in Gulfport and the Sea Breeze Manor.

We have stayed at the Sea Breeze before this visit was as enjoyable as ever. Lori does an incredible job to make sure your room is comfortable and has everything you need (even big white robes for lounging in!) This time we were in the Aruba suite with a sitting area (with a door out to the porch) and 1 1/2 baths. Perfect! Breakfasts on the porch are always delicious and relaxing - we love sitting and watching the water and the people in the park across the street. happy hour on the porch with friends is just as good!! The porch has a fridge stocked with water and sodas and an ice maker. Labor Day weekend was a great time to be in Gulfport with the Art Walk and the amazing Gecko Fest. We also had great dinners at Belini's and Backfin - both short walks from the Inn. We hope to get back to Gulfport at least once a year and this is the only place we'll stay!

We were doing major remodelling to our home in Gulfport, so decided to book one of the two pet-friendly cottages at the Sea Breeze Manor for two weeks. It was the best money we spent on our remodel. Each day after working on our home destruction and reconstruction, we came back to the Sea Breeze and felt as relaxed as we possibly could be. Our two dogs very happy here also. The accomodations are beautiful and each guest suite is uniquely decorated. The common area is tasteful but homey, the verandah overlooking the Bay is great for relaxing with a glass of wine in the evening or a cup of (really good) coffee in the morning. Great home made breakfasts. Innkeeper Lori Rosso is so friendly and gracious. The Inn is just steps away from all the cool shops and restaurants in Gulfport's Waterfront District. Altogether, a wonderful getaway. Highly recommended for a visit to an "Old Florida"-style village.

Stayed for two nights with my wife and infant.
We ended up here after reading the reviews of the places on St. Pete beach and the gulf. Most seemed to be past-their-prime examples of what St. Pete used to be like before cheap package tours to Mexico took their lunch.

We thoroughly enjoyed Gulfport, none of the chain restaurants that dominate the rest of Florida and strangle the interest out of visiting the Sunshine State.

The Sea Breeze was a exactly what we were looking for, an antidote to the sameness and washed-out yesteryear feeling to the rest of the area.

Owner was very personable and knowledgable of the area, very accommodating host who we enjoyed chatting with.

We would definitely stay again if in the St. Pete area.

This was our second stay at Sea Breeze Manor - great B&B and Gulfport is a charming, small waterfront town. Almost everything is within walking distance - lots of great restaurants and shops. Sea Breeze Manor is right across the street from a city park with beach access - we could see Boca Ciega Bay from our patio. We were in the Key West cottage (a separate cottage that is handicap accessible) - room was lovely, with a nice seating area and desk, spacious bath; breakfast was good. There are two cottages (both pet friendly) in addition to the main inn accommodations. We started our mornings with breakfast out on the porch looking out onto the water - wonderful. There are snacks/drinks available all day. All in all, a delightful stay.
