Welcome to Gulfport and to your cozy Blue Arbor Guest Cottage. Gulfport is a neighborly little town of 13, 000 nestled on the shores of Boca Ciega Bay in the Tampa Bay/central Gulf Coast area of Florida. Blue Arbor is a quiet little spot just around the corner from everything that's happening in Gulfport. And believe us, a LOT is happening in Gulfport

Your hosts are Jeff Moore and Michael O'Toole, and your guest cottage is an intimate, private, 350-square-foot one-room structure built five years ago specifically as guest quarters for friends and family. Its main room features hardwood floors, oriental rugs, a king size bed, ceiling fan, some of our extensive art collection, and three windows overlooking the large, bountiful yard. You'll also find a comfortable upholstered chair in the corner for reading/relaxing and a desk/work table under a big window for writing and/or working on your computer (if you must). There is also a roomy closet, full bath with large, walk-in tile shower, and a food area that features a coffee maker, a toaster, a microwave, a cook top, and a small refrigerator. And yes, the cottage has wi-fi and cable TV

Outside your front door is a private, protected little front porch—a great place to drink your morning coffee, sit and watch the world go by, talk on your phone or even smoke. And you can watch the squirrels, the birds, the lizards and all the other creatures inhabiting a yard that sometimes resembles a habitat

Then, when you're ready, you'll find Beach Boulevard right around the corner. That would be our four-block-long-plus main street featuring all the shops, restaurants, music venues and watering holes you could ever want. They're too numerous to mention, but come on down and we'll tell you our favorites. Then there's the First Friday Art Walk, the Third Saturday Art Walk, the Tuesday Fresh Market and bazaar, Spring Festival, GeckoFest (September) and, well, more—lots more. And, oh yes, our beach

Okay, if you MUST leave Gulfport, the Gulf beaches are just minutes away, or try St. Petersburg next door: top notch live theater at American Stage and freeFall Theater, or the world famous Salvador Dali Museum, housed in its stunning new building, and old favorite Sunken Gardens, to name just a few. Or cross the bay to Tampa for the Straz Performing Arts Center, or Ybor City, the historic Cuban community that is now club central, or Busch Gardens. And Disney World is just an hour and a half away

But when you're finished, be sure to come back to Gulfport and to your cozy accommodations at Blue Arbor. There's no place like home
