Classic charm meets modern beach breeziness at The Sand Dollar, a chic, second-story 1BR/1.5BA apartment in the heart of Gulfport’s vibrant Waterfront District. With a parlor-style living space and private, tropical patio, there’s no shortage of spaces to relax. And you’ll do so in style: preserved Shaker touches and cool coastal décor offer the ideal blend of laid-back beach vibes and old-school Florida elegance. Venture out and find yourself at the center of a vibrant community, where you’ll fill your days with farmer’s markets or music festivals. Spend afternoons in the surf and evenings at diverse waterfront restaurants. It’s all here in Gulfport, a funky little community tucked within St. Pete.

And you’ll do so in style: preserved Shaker touches and cool coastal décor offer the ideal blend of laid-back beach vibes and old-school Florida elegance. Venture out and find yourself at the center of a vibrant community, where you’ll fill your days with farmer’s markets or music festivals. Spend afternoons in the surf and evenings at diverse waterfront restaurants. It’s all here in Gulfport, a funky little community tucked within St. Pete. A DAY AT THE SAND DOLLAR Wake up in a king-size bedroom with airy coastal accents to remind you that you’re on beach time. The en-suite master bath with a walk-in shower is great for refreshing for the day ahead or washing off the sand from your latest adventure. Swing open the French doors to the living space, then grab a book or admire the treetop views from the cozy sofas. If you need a minute to check in with the real world, steal away to catch up on emails at the corner desk (free WiFi is also included). Additional guests can use the main en-suite bathroom and convenient half-bath off the downstairs laundry room. A queen-size EZ bed is also available if you’re bringing a crew of four. Suited for prepping everything from beach picnics to gourmet cuisine, the kitchen is equipped with a full suite of appliances and all the pots, pans, and dishes you’d find at home. Shake a margarita and sip it in the upstairs sunroom, or prep feasts and share them in your private outdoor yard. This tropical-inspired space is draped by an enormous sail shade to keep afternoon gatherings cool—have a long lunch at the outdoor table, then recoup on the loungers or hammock. WHY WE LOVE THE SAND DOLLAR Its own hidden hangout in the midst of the Waterfront District, the Sand Dollar offers low-key relaxation to balance out Gulfport’s energy and excitement. We love its quaint charm as much as we love its proximity to fun and funky downtown, home to mouthwatering dining establishments, unique art galleries, and a full line-up of events. Visit during GeckoFest, a circus-inspired street event with chill tunes and can’t-miss costumes, or catch a bi-weekly ArtWalk. For some time in the great outdoors, take your four-legged family member on a stroll to the dog park, or peddle your way down the Pinellas Bike Trail. The Sand Dollar is just a short trip from Stetson School of Law and Eckerd College, making it ideal for families making a visit to campus.

About the neighbourhood
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. Or yearly sailing regattas, sandcastle competitions and Formula One boat races. When you’re ready to take a break from downtown’s lively spirit for something a little quieter, pedal one of our complementary bikes to the Pinellas Trail or walk to the dog park with your four-legged pal. Every day brings a fresh adventures and a new experience to explore.
