Roger and Michael were great hosts having coffee, wine, and delicious bisottis in the room when we arrived. It is very clean and in a quiet area but within walking distance of all the restaurants and shops in the nice little downtown Gulfport. The cottage is roomy and has most everything needed except there is no stove top but a toaster oven, microwave, fridge and dishes provided worked well for our week stay.

Wonderful Location, Wonderful Hosts

We stayed in the cottage for a month. Michael and Roger are wonderful hosts, extremely helpful but non-intrusive.

Comfortable furniture and an especially nice shaded porch for morning coffee and afternoon wine time.

Beautiful grounds with interesting plants.

Very convenient to all Gulport has to offer, especially walking to restaurants and the waterfront.

Kattie the Kat is an added bonus.

Blue Arbor Guest Cottage was spotless, tastefully appointed, and had everything a guest could possibly want, right down to a new toothbrush. Michael and Roger, the innkeepers who reside in their separate home on the property, were very pleasant and eager to please. They even cut out newspaper information on restaurants staying open over the Christmas holiday, and as a solo traveler, I appreciated the extra touches. Take advantage of the fun and quirky restaurants and shops on Beach Blvd., which is just around the corner. The Gulfport Pier is a super stroll, and the beach is intimate, clean, and easily accessible with adjacent public parking. Blue Arbor is one of those rare spots that deserves return visits.

The Blue Arbor Cottage is a most delightful hideaway - perfect in simplicity, design and comfort!

My hosts, Roger and Michael thought of everything! Each time I opened a drawer or cabinet, I found just what I needed. The newly constructed cottage is set back from the main road and nestled in beautiful Florida landscaping near the main house. I love the open, studio design and the bathroom with the large tiled shower. They have decorated with interesting pieces from their art collection and Roger's own glass work - the pictures don't do it justice. It is only a few blocks from the main street and bay walk in Gulfport, which has such a warm, old- time Florida feel. Blue Arbor Cottage is truly a Gulfport gem and I feel lucky to have found it! I extended my own stay and plan to come back next year :)
