Gulfport Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Bring your children and pets to enjoy your vacation at our lovely spacious Whispering Sands Cottage. Watch the sunrise on the Gulf of Mexico from the deck or walk 2 blocks to the beach for a panoramic view from the fishing pier.

This gulf view cottage was built in 2008 after Hurricane Katrina destroyed the original house in August 2005.

The decor of this cottage will make you feel right at home. The Master bedroom has a poster bed and it's own private bath. The second bedroom has a queen bed and the 3rd bedroom has 2 twin beds. The couch folds out for an additional queen bed. All bedrooms have TVs and luxury linens.

This cottage has a large living room with flat screen TV. Living room and dining area have new hardwood floors . The kitchen has just been updated with stainless steel appliances and ceramic tile flooring and is fully equipped for all your cooking needs. The laundry has a new stack washer and dryer. The deck has a gas grill and overlooks the park with a view of the water.

The cottage is easily accessible with 4 entry steps. There are grab bars in the main bath and comfort hight commodes.

Bring up to 2 pets and walk them in the park across the street which features walking paths, children's playground equipment and a splash pad water feature to cool off on those hot summer days. If you want to exercise the community center is across the street to the north with a full fitness center open to the public.

We have many championship golf courses on the coast. There are 11 casinos (Island View Casino is 3 blocks away), Charter fishing boats, Schooner sailings, Great restaurants and Oyster Bars, or take the Ship Island Excursion Boat and enjoy the white sand beaches an crystal clear waters of the barrier islands.

Children will love the park with the splash pad and the beach, or take them to the Lynn Meadows Discovery Center, Gulf Islands Water Park, The Center for Marine Education and Research, or on the Shrimp Boat Excursion where dolphins jump along side the boat most days.

If you want to take a day trip New Orleans is just 80 miles away. Take the scenic route (Hwy 90) and see the Old Fort and nature up close ( you might just see an alligator in the road).

Sisters Visit..

  • of 5
I reserved this home for a short business trip and brought my 2 sisters (all of us are 50+, so no partying) to make it a bit of a pleasure trip. The home was probably the cleanest rental I’ve ever seen. I manage vacation rentals myself and know how difficult it can be to keep it this clean. The owner does a fantastic job. The home is well stocked and furnished with everything you need. Maybe a little dated, but that’s not a big deal. There’s a nice view of the ocean from one entire side of the house. The multiple curtains in the bedroom hinder the view a little, but that’s just personal preference. I like ‘open’ windows, and blinds would be sufficient for me, but many guest want complete privacy. The only thing that we were not happy with was the fact that the owner came into the home during our stay. We came back to the house to drop off one sister that had gotten sick and wanted to lay down, so she put on pajamas to lay down, then heard a knock on the door. Not knowing anyone in the area, she didn’t answer, then she heard the owner in the living room asking if anyone was there. With my business, I would never go into a home someone is renting without calling first. Nancy was checking to make sure the heat was working, but that could have been handled with a simple phone call. Personally, I won’t rent from someone that is living next door again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for noticing how clean the cottage was, we are very conscientious about the comfort of our guests. I'm sorry you took exception to the fact that I came over to make sure the cottage had sufficient heat. The furnace repair man had been at the house the day before repairing the heating system and had left just before you arrived 2 hours early, so we did not have the chance to see if it was working properly. My husband noticed the outside condenser unit was not shutting off properly so he asked me to go and see if the furnace was working. I knocked on the door and I know you cannot hear anyone knocking unless you are in the living room so I opened the door about 6 inches and asked if anyone was home. I DID NOT GO INTO THE HOUSE UNTIL YOUR SISTER CAME OUT AND TALKED TO ME. I stood by the door and talked with her. I am sorry your sister was offended by my opening the door but if the deadbolt had been on I would have known someone was home and continued to knock until someone answered. I did not check the furnace which I should have, because your sister said it was working fine. Ultimately it was NOT working properly and as as soon as you left the repair men were called back in to finish repairs. I never go into our cottage when we have guests unless there is a problem that needs immediate attention which we thought there was with the heating system. I'm sure it would have been much more inconvenient had you returned to the cottage late at night and found the heat was not working and we would not be able to fix the problem promptly. I'm sure you as a property manager would have followed the same course of action for the comfort of your guests. I am just glad the heat stayed on until you checked out before it quit working completely.

loved every minute!

  • 5 of 5
The place was amazing! We brought so much we didn't need such as; spices,morning coffee, blow driers, dishwashing stuff, chairs for the beach,even toys for the beach! The entertainment cabinet was full of board games, books, even puzzle books. It was just everything we wanted and more! I even found a coffee cup with my initial on it! The pictures really don't do justice for the space it actually has. Just beautiful and comfortable! Was ready for anyone in any family or even health situation with a crib and carrier for a baby and hand rails on the porch. Well done!! Would love to come back! I wanted to make sure my kids actually saw a beach before they all leave the nest because I'm from california originally and LOVE a beach! We had a great great great time. thank you

Awesome Stay

  • 5 of 5
House offers complete privacy in a great location. We had no issues arise while we were there. The house and furnishings are very modern and beautiful. The bedrooms and bathrooms were so comfortable and well-furnished. The kitchen was well equipped. It is in a great central location for all the nearby activities. The only thing that might be added for disabled visitors would be a ramp at the side door, but we managed with the three steps. I definitely recommend this home for your next vacation. It suits all ages and allows pets; which is a definite plus.

Perfect for Families

  • 5 of 5
Owner very accommodating as this was a last minute decision. Enjoyed our weekend with my son and his family which includes a one year old and dog. This place was perfect: Waterpad and park across the street, beach walking distance as just a couple blocks away, large empty lot next door for parking and running the dogs, and quiet area. Everything we needed was there. Much nicer than shows in photographs.

Whispering Sands excellent!

We were very happy with Whispering Sands! Very clean, close to the beach as well as stores, etc. Centrally located. Plenty of room for our family. Loved having the washer/dryer and the furnished accommodations. When I had questions and would email, I would get answers promptly. We would highly recommend Whispering Sands. Thank you !!

Great Summer Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This property was exactly as described and as other reviewers have stated, quite clean. My husband, 2 boys (8 and 13) and geriatric dog (15) had a wonderful time in the cottage. A very short walk to the beach, right across from the splash park, and short drive to restaurants and other attractions. We had a fabulous trip!!
