HISTORIC VICTORIAN HOME WITH LIMITED BEACH VIEW

Gulfport House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

More information can be seen by clicking on the 'Harrison Historic House' website link below.

A three minute walk straight out the front door puts you standing on a beautiful white sandy beach on the Gulf of Mexico. Beautiful historic Victorian home built in 1900 situated on Second Street in a very established and charming neighborhood graced by lovely plantings including camelias and numerous towering live oaks.

This neighborhood affords the opportunity for great walks with your family or your dog. This home has been completely updated and features the original high ceilings and heart pine floors. A wrap around porch with wicker furniture and a double 'love' swing greet newcomers as they ascend the front porch.

The front door opens to a spacious living room with plenty of seating and television and fireplace for entertaining. To the left are French doors that open to a lovely front reading room abundant with windows and natural light allowing house guests to get lost in their favorite novel. This room with hard pine flooring and high ceiling is furnished with antiques and tiffany lamps and has the added comfort and convenience of having its own bathroom. The cozy couch opens up to a queen sized bed for your invited guests. The oversized formal dining room has a built-in cabinet with hard pine flooring and high ceiling. A wonderful setting to 'wine and dine' your family and guests.

The main floor has two bedrooms each with a queen sized bed and private bathroom. The staircase leads to a separate bedroom upstairs with bathroom. The upstairs bedroom has numerous windows. The beckoning beach and beautiful Gulf of Mexico can be seen in the distance. The room is furnished with two queen size beds. A perfect room for a couple with kids or a place for all the kids. Two of the three bedrooms have their own TV with VHS and/or DVD.

The kitchen is a full sized kitchen including an island with stools and a dining table. The kitchen is the centerpiece of the house and its beauty will pleasantly surprise you. The kitchen's back door opens onto a very spacious wood deck as well as a brick patio both fully furnished with furniture as well as a gas grill. A very beautiful and spacious backyard with live oaks and copious amounts of shade await your coming. The property spans four city lots and therefore has plenty of room for parking vehicles for 'Cruisin' the Coast' and for your boat and trailer or camper.

Downtown Gulfport is a short walk away. If you like to walk the ISLAND VIEW CASINO RESORT is also within walking distance. The gaming destinations along this 26 mile beach are second only to Vegas.

The 26 mile long beach is a gorgeous beach to explore with numerous wharfs, beach activities, shopping, beachcombing, and restaurants. Biloxi with its numerous casinos is just a few minutes away by car, bike or the local transportation.

The beach is home to the charming, small southern towns of Long Beach, Pass Christian and Bay St. Louis which are great for shopping for antiques. The area has over 20 golf courses including one of the 'top ten' public golf courses in the country. The casinos and Biloxi coliseum offer grand entertainment and numerous live shows. The fabulous and historic town of New Orleans is only an hour away.

The Gulfport harbor offers daily excursions to Cat Island. The Gulf Islands National Seashore is only a dozen miles off the coast and affords great swimming and a quiet place to hang out on your boat.

I am a pilot, a Captain with a major airline and have traveled all over the world. In all of my travels I have found the beaches of southern Mississippi to be some of the best and the beaches of the offshore islands are simply beautiful. The southern hospitality in this town is wonderful. My daughter in the picture loves it here in Gulfport.

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

We like this area for the beaches and the offshore islands. You can't beat the proximity to the beaches, the golf courses, the casinos and the nearby military bases.

We like to walk the beach in the morning right at sunrise and again in the evening at sunset. We also enjoy walking to the nearby piers and fishing in the Gulf of Mexico. We enjoy walking out our front door and crossing the street into the parking lot of the local Italian restaurant 'Salute' and feasting on great Italian fare and good Italian wine.

GREAT PLACE WITH EVERYTHING YOU NEED

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Historic Harrison House in June. The weather was great and it is short walk to the beach. There was 8 adults and 2 children and we all had enough bathrooms so know one ever had to wait for someone to get ready. The roomy house was a delight. The front porch is the best porch in Gulf Port we would sit there in the evenings and all day long. The back patio has a grill and table we sat outside to eat supper. I would recommend this house to anyone going to Gulf Port it has everything you need. Owner was very helpful in answering questions. Some of us went on a airboat ride that was not to far away. The White Cap restaurant is an excellent place to eat and not far away.
Excellent would do it again.

NEVER STAY AT A CONDO AGAIN

  • 5 of 5
Our group of four golfers(male, middle aged) stay at the Harrison House every year for a week of golf, gambling and dining in April. The house is perfect for our needs. The house is well maintained and clean. We do not cook many meals, but everything is there that is needed. The BBQ out back is a nice bonus. The location is perfect, safe, secure and everything is a short drive away. You can even walk to the Island View Casino, if you are adventurous. So much more comfortable than a hotel or a condo. 2014 will be our seventh rebooking. Can there be a higher recommendation?

GREAT PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
The house was great. It was plenty big enough for two families with children. It has a bedroom and bathroom situated upstairs so if you have more than one family you can each have your own space. The kitchen was nice. There were plenty of pots, pans, plates, bowls and cups. Everything was nice and clean. The only things that I noticed missing were a pizza cutter and there was only one baking sheet.
The bedrooms and linens were excellent. Beds were comfy. The house is well equipped electronically, there is an Ipod docking radio. Tvs in every room. Wifi worked great. The house was good and clean. The only things that I noticed were small detail things that you notice when you live in a house all the time like that the fans were really dusty. The ceilings are high though so they can't be easy to clean. Overall I think they do a great job.

The neighbor that sees to the place is super nice and helpful. Gulfport is nice as long as you don't stray too far from the beach. I would avoid the Walmart in Gulfport at all costs. Drive down Beach Blvd. toward Pass Christian there is a nice one right on the road. As previous reviewer stated there is a train. You can't get away from it, it runs down the entire beach so you are going to hear it anywhere you stay unless you are in a large hotel. We all pretty much slept through it. You get used to it after the first night.

8 ADULTS VACATION

  • 5 of 5
This was a wonderful house, we had a great time. The sofa sleeper was just ok, all the other sleeping beds were great. The house has a lot of room for our crowd. We are a group of 4 couples. It did take us awhile to figure out the shower water, we were not able to take showers at the same time, but worked out a plan. The owner was very helpful with any questions we had. You would be able to walk to the gulf shore,but parking is easy to get to. We went up Hwy 90 to the casinos, ate at Shaggys,on the shore,took a tram tour of the area, we booked a sail boat, went to New Orleans,(2 hour drive) had a blast,it is a differant place! Lots to see. Across from the house is 2 restaurants you can walk this, Saloutos had the best food choice for our group pizza to steaks.The guys in our group golfed 3 of the days, all within a short drive,the weather for us was perfect. We enjoyed sitting on the huge front porch in the evenings,and early morning. the back deck also was very roomy. We ate all our meals out,we just bought breakfast cereals and doughtnuts, and things to drink and snack on,( we were there for the baseball play- offs) All in all it was a wonderful vacation for all of us,and we will certaintly go back to Harrison Historic House for another Gulfport stay. Just to let you know a little about us,we are all in our early 60's,and have been friends since early chidhood a lot of planning went into this vacation and it was a wonderful success!

GREAT VACATION - FAMILY REUNION

  • 4 of 5
This house was a great value for the money. It has a wonderful kitchen with many upgrades throughout the house. The house was big enough for our family to gather. There was enough space for all of us to retreat when in need of a little free time. The front porch in the evening was delightful. The only issue we had was the train. We had some light sleepers up stairs and the train made them loose a little sleep. The rest of the families did fine. The beach was only a block away with many amenities and very clean. The house was close to many attractions making sightseeing enjoyable.

HOUSE IS AWESOME! WE HAD A WONDEFUL TIME

  • 5 of 5
We loved the house. Kitchen and decorations are fabulous. Rooms are nice and front porch and back area provide for great socializing and place to rest. There is a cute park down the street with a great tennis court if you like to play (about 3 blocks) and good for little kids. It provided the perfect vacation for our family. Would highly recommend to anyone who wants to stay in the area. The caretaker recommended places to grocery shop (Froogels?) and the Fata Morgana show at the Beau Rivage (circ de soleil type show) that was great. Distance for a day trip to New Orleans is perfect ( about an hour). The upstairs room is a little musty - I suspect because there is carpet (the main floor all wood), but overall the house if fabulous and none of us wanted to leave. I would highly recommend this as a vacation spot for anyone.
