On Location: The SeaBreeze Manor

The Property: Seabreeze Manor in Gulfport, FL.

The Seabreeze Manor in Gulfport is one of the most charming B&B’s I have had the pleasure of visiting. Even before entering the house you are swept away by it’s “Old Florida” charm.

We rang the doorbell and were promptly greeted by Lori, who was bubbly and informative. She put together a packet of information for us on Gulfport, gave us some recommendations on where and where not to eat, and escorted us to our room.

We stayed in the Key Largo room, which was beautiful cottage separate from the main house. Double glass doors open to a sitting room with a large wicker couch and TV. A fabulous King Size Bed awaits past the sitting area, complete with platform so as not to have an obstructed view of the Bay. Even though the Bay is across the street, you truly feel ocean front. A very large bathroom, complete with bath tub and shower, also boasts a beautiful antique sink. Each room is equipped with its own air conditioning unit, which was very welcome being it is the dead of summer in South West Florida.

In the main house, guests will enjoy Soda, Port, Sherry and snacks at their own leisure. The Inn also has an impressive collection of VCR tapes for use of the guests. I can’t say enough about breakfast! We were up and around at about 8:30 and were cooked breakfast by Linda…who did a fabulous job! Breakfast included:

  • Choice of Eggs

  • Southwest Hashbrowns

  • Fresh Melon

  • Spinach Pie

  • Rye Toast

  • Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice

  • Coffee

We were completely stuffed!

My favorite part about staying at the Seabreeze, along with the ocean front views, was the fact that everything we needed was within walking distance! Great restaurants, shops, bars and entertainment are just a 5 minute walk away. We are very much looking forward to returning to the Seabreeze Manor in the near future, and with Lori and the rest of the staff a great summer!
