Just off 2nd Street(actually a block closer to the beach than the wonderful 2nd street area).
This is an old-fashioned getaway where the main purpose is to relax. The house is located in the historic Second Street area.
While this area was heavily damaged during Katrina---much of the neighborhood charm is coming back with the construction of bright new homes and beautiful landscaping.
There are several great restaurants in walking distance including Salute and the rebuilt Chimneys restaurant. Plenty of other restaurants like the Half Shell Oyster House and the wonderful Lookout Steakhouse have opened in beautifully restored buildings downtown....about a 5 minute drive from Ryan House.
This house is perfect for morning walks, sipping coffee and cocktails at sunset.
The covered deck is a spacious 10 x 26 feet tiled area with plenty of outdoor seating.
This is the 2nd floor unit of a 3 unit building. From the deck is an expansive view of the neighborhood, beautiful oak trees and a little peek of the Gulf.
Ryan House is a very quiet and peaceful setting and beats the heck out of staying in a Motel!

We have owned this property for more than a decade---it's named after our first born daughter Ryan. Ryan House, has a lot of charm and history. The house was originally built in the 30's and has weathered the 2 worst Hurricanes in U.S. history, Camille and Katrina(Andrew for Florida folks). We have renovated the house twice---one time was planned and the second was following Katrina. We have saved a lot of the character of the structure and added modern amenities. The main feature we love is the porch and those endless breezes.
The Owner purchased this house in 2000
The Gulf Coast is the best place to be. From New Orleans to Destin, there is always something to see and new discoveries to be made. This location is central to all of the exciting things on the coast. The casinos are fun-the beaches, boating and local cuisine can't be beat.
The main benefit of being on the coast is to relax. We are across the street from the beach. This means you are only a boat ride away from exploring Ship Island. Island View Casino is just a few minutes away offering a great buffet.We also like the outlet mall just up Highway 49.
The PERFECT location. There is the view of the ocean from the front porch, restaurants literally 2 minutes away. The house is everything you need. We had a girls trip for 4 days and wish it had been longer. The neighborhood is very safe, went for walks every morning and night and it was just like home. The owners are great to work with and answered my many silly questions. If I go back to the Gulfport area I would definitely stay here.
Had a great stay in this unit ! Everything was clean and well stocked. The oversize porch was amazing and the neighborhood was excellent. Unit is a three minute walk to the beach and a park. Grounds are well maintained and we appreciated the off street parking. The owners were easy to work with ! Will definitely return !
We just arrived home from a perfect stay! Not one complaint! It is a great location, close to everything but far enough away to be quiet. The balcony is great. The decor is very tasteful. There wasn't one thing we needed that was not already stocked and it was clean when we arrived. Thank you for providing a great rental. Here's hoping we can make this a once-a-year home away from home.
I stayed here in late September with my future sister-in-law for a small girls weekend getaway. The property is gorgeous and serene. We spent countless hours sitting in the rocking chairs on the porch. The property was extremely easy to find and I couldn't have asked for a better location. If I ever need to stay in the Gulfport area again, I will not hesitate for a second to book here. The owners are fantastic to work with. I received my deposit back the very next day. Ryan house will be the only place I stay from here on out.
We were looking for a spot to just get away for a few days. This was a great place. Very clean.
We enjoyed visiting Beauvoir (Biloxi) and dining at Steve's Marina (Long Beach). We also found Jones Park to be quiet interesting( This is within walking distance) Ryan's house was so relaxing. We had a really bad storm while we were there and spent time in due to the storm. We were upstairs and the other two units were occupied as well,other than seeing someone in passing we never really knew they were there. We also enjoyed sitting and watching the bird who had a nest on the poarch. Overall a wonderful getaway. The owners were very easy to work with and take pride in the house. You can tell by the way they keep it up. When we need a close and quick get away we would consider returning.
My Mom & I stayed in the upstairs unit. It was relaxing from the moment we walked in. It has a "coasty" feel and is very clean. Would definitely stay here again. Enjoyed the rocking chairs on the veranda and had a view of the beach. Very nice neighborhood, too. And the owners are good to work with. Niiiiiiiice!
