Overview

Gulfport House 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).

About Nancy Mustaikis

We are from Michigan and love the Mississippi Gulf Coast. We have 3 cottages on the same street where we spend the winters with our family and friends. When we are not using them we have decided to rent them as vacation rentals for others to enjoy.

Nancy Mustaikis purchased this house in 2011

Beautiful and Relaxing Beach Home

  • 5 of 5

This beach home is beautiful, relaxing, and peaceful! It was the perfect arrangement for our family of six. The home is maintained exceptionally and the ease of use was outstanding. We loved the electronic locking system, so we didn't have to worry about picking up, losing, or returning a key. The property was exactly as described and the cleanliness was beyond expectations. The amenities in the home were above industry standards, they even included coffee and cooking staples in the kitchen! The expectations on the guest were not excessive for checking out, which made the sadness and dread of ending your vacation that much easier! The home was extremely comfortable and the furnishings were excellent quality. They did not feel like a "furniture rental package" or cookie cutter condo, they felt personal and like a real home! The owners were extremely kind and generous with their hospitality, offering our kids a great bag of beach toys to use while visiting! We traveled with our dog and the area offered plenty of green grass and paved sidewalks (without hardly any traffic) for short and long walks. Each of us enjoyed every minute that we were there and even spent a couple of afternoons just relaxing, playing games, napping, and watching TV instead of running around trying to occupy ourselves with touristy things! This is an excellent choice when visiting Gulfport - we will be back! (Home including: washer/dryer, gas grill, great patio furniture, tons of movies and games, local information binder, ceiling fans in every room, great TV's in every room, comfortable beds, abundance of towels, linens, and blanket, FULLY stocked kitchen, top of the line (amazing) appliances, shampoo and body wash dispensers, toiletries, etc.... ) ABOVE EXPECTATIONS!

Whispering Sands

  • 5 of 5

It is such a nice house. It was very clean and even decorated for St. Patrick's Day. There weren't too many knick knacks down low so it was a great house for our young children. Everything we needed was in the house. The park right next door was great. The beach can be seen from the deck, kitchen and bedroom windows. It was so nice waking up to that view.

Owner's Response: We're glad you enjoyed your stay. I wish the weather would have been better for you to enjoy the beach. Thank you for leaving the cottage so clean, we would never have known you had children with you they are so well behaved. Enjoy your spring and summer and thank you for choosing to stay with us.

Whispering Sands was wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for your hospitality. We moved in and everything was there... as if we owned the place. Just a block from the beach, quiet, clean, and safe. A very nicely decorated cabin. It was also a nice feeling that the owners have other property on that street and they were nearby. It was a pleasure meeting them.

whispering sands cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in Gulfport, Ms. We felt so at home while staying at the cottage as we have in the past. The owner (Nancy) was next door for the winter and she made sure we had everything we needed. She left her phone for us to call if we did need anything. The cottage was very clean and beautifully decorated. It even had a Christmas Tree fully decorated. We enjoyed that very much. We loved being within walking distance to the beach and the casino. Everything else was just a short drive away. We are looking forward to returning in the spring.

Sisters Visit..

  • 3 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.
