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.

GREAT LOCATION

  • 4 of 5
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.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the review when everything went great. So many times the reviews come only when something went wrong. My most recent bad review came from a woman who rented it for her sons rock band rather than for her and her son who is in a rock band. Then trashed the house and had continuous police survey lance. There are circumstances we can't do anything to help, they just happen and people today are conditioned to find someone to blame. It is my hope that everyone that stays here has a better time than they expect. Yes the time in the shade both morning and evening on the deck are everybody's favorite and I hope you will return. You are the type of customer who makes me want to keep this going.

IVY CONDO

  • 5 of 5
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.

NICE STAY IN GULFPORT

  • 4 of 5
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.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the honest review. All suggestions noted. Cleaning details are a work in progress. Alway appreciate honest and thoughtful reviews. Any time 7 adults stay in a 3 bedroom house, outcomes vary. My goal with this house is to rent primarily to families.

We rented this home in the past. Just thrilled you got rid of the rental company. Very smart move. They are awful! Your home was fine, our only problem was the rental company. The date we were there was January 2012. We payed for a month but only stayed 15 days, my husbands father passed away. Wonderful area and wonderful neighbors

The house was rather nice and the location was good.. but there were a few concerns:
the hot water in the master bathroom shower did not work, the dryer did not work, there were roaches in the kitchen and bathroom and there were no bicycles (as advertised).

Owner's Response: Holidays can bring problems for Real Estate.
Bikes: Sorry didn't mean to make a broken promise, I will take that off the listing until I get some more (some kids decided they wanted them more than me/my guest).
Dryer: It is now replaced and would have been had the Renter simply called me as I requested when housekeeping notified me it was not drying. I had repair man arranged for on Christmas eve and had only home phone # for Renter so I sent Renter an email requesting they call me. Instead they replied to email which I got too late before service people shut down for Christmas.
Hot Water: Just after City replaced water line we had sand get in the lines and I experienced a single time where the spigot in Master would not get hot. I had plumber come and everything was working properly. No other guest have experienced trouble. Had Renter called me, I could have explained how it works.

I only wish that people would communicate with someone who can do something about their problems rather than create bigger ones. This is my own personal extra home that I willingly share with others and yes there are problems occasionally in my world that I take care of, if anyone has found a place where nothing goes wrong in this world please invite ME.

ENJOYED OUR STAY BUT GET A CONTRACT WITH OWNER!

  • 4 of 5
Nice place and enjoyed our stay! Nice view of beach and ocean! Not a far walk! We loved the area! However get something from owner in writing as he does not return your deposit. We are in our 50's and didn't hurt this place at all - left it as we found it expect for bedding and sandy floors but that's what the cleaning fee is for!

Owner's Response: I am thankful for the 4 star. I had knee surgery just prior to this persons stay, moved my office for which I still wait on Comcast to get my phone hooked up, and my bank has gone through a huge web access update which has stunned my banking. Yes this persons deposit was due to them almost a month ago. However, they are the only one. As for security deposit, mine are about the lowest you will find and they have always been $100 (not $50). I never rent my house without something in writing which is in the form of an Invoice from a company with a great reputation. I am only thankful that this is the worst comment I received on my house since I fired the management company that oversaw thing there in my absence in order to give guest a more personal experience.
