This photo of my Wife and I is California. You may note that the sand is no different way out there. We enjoy traveling and have a beach Rendezvous every year with the National Center for Fathering (just google 'Fathers'). We like to vacation with our family as well. My wife is a OBGYN in Jackson, MS and I do business and Real Estate Development. We built this house in anticipation of building more for the Coast and then decided to turn it into a vacation house October of 2009. The main reason we wanted to keep it was so we can FISH on the Mississippi coast. I am an avid outdoors man, but keep it quiet about how good it is in Mississippi to keep the competition down.
Hugh Trussell, Owner purchased this house in 2006
Why stay at a casino or in a noisy high rise when you can have a home of your own in a great location for cruising 90, on a fishing trip or just to relax and eat seafood.
Please know that while many of our guest may find us through VRBO this house is managed by Rental Resources therefore there are no direct links back to customers who do stay here. Therefore reviews are not solicited. If you have stayed here, we do hope to hear from you especially if you have had good times with your family. We do everything possible to keep the house from being abused by the wrong type of guest and encourage its use by families.
We were happy the house was just as described in the VRBO ad. The house was well equipped, it is in an excellent location, and the owner went out of his way to make our experience a good one. I like working with nice people.
We traveled from SC to meet our daughter and her husband, who live in Texas, for a family vacation. We enjoyed the proximity to the water, the casino, and nice restaurants. We had a great time and would recommend the Ivy Vista to other travelers.
My family and I stayed here several days recently. There were 7 adults and 1 child, and it was just enough space for us. We absolutely LOVED the view from the deck, and this is where we spent most of the time while we were actually at the home. It is a block and a half from the beach, easily walkable; and a short drive from Downtown Gulfport. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.
This condo was fabulous. It has all the amenities, and just about everything else you are sure to forget. . The whole place feels like it's your own. Great location a few foot steps to a bright white beach. The deck is where we spent every evening. We are definitely going to return.
We had a very nice stay in this house in Gulfport and especially enjoyed the spacious deck. There were seven of us and the owner went out of his way to see that all our needs were met. There were plenty of linens/towels to go around. It could have been just a bit cleaner but we are pretty picky so that wasn't a big deal. The bathrooms and kitchen were clean and that was the most important thing. There are several excellent restaurants in the area which the owner had told us about and we enjoyed a lot of great food. Therefore we didn't have much need for the well-equipped kitchen. But it had everything one would need to cook meals. I would only suggest that a few more coffee cups and bowls could be added.
Large City Park including a fresh water splash pad.
