About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-9)

If you're looking for a vacation spot that feels like home, look no more. Located on a small peninsula, Beard's Cove offers the peace and quiet you crave, with the convenience of being in the heart of the Coast. You are minutes away from gaming, fishing, shopping, restaurants, water parks, Lynn Meadows Children's Museum, and lounging on the beach. The street is so quiet you would never think you are in the middle of the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Beard's Cove is more than a vacation rental-it's a home away from home.

About The Owner

My wife is a caterer and I am a property adjuster. My partners are Bob Dowd and his son Matt. Bob is a third party retirement plan consultant in Brandon, Ms, while Matt is a practicing attorney in Jackson, Ms.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Why The Owner chose Mississippi

This home is absolutely beautiful, even without the breath-taking views. But what really sold us was how conveniently located it is to everything we need or love to do. It's 2 minutes from a grocery store, 5 minutes from the beach, 1 minute from a boat launch, minutes from several local restaurants, only about 10 minutes from the Island View Casino and 15 minutes from the Beau Rivage.

What makes this house unique

I think the most unique thing about our home is what happens in the fall of the year. Standing at the bulkhead bordering the yard you can catch shrimp or crabs without leaving your vacation home. There just aren't many places offering that kind of unique family entertainment.

Gorgeous Rental

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent rental in gulfport, MS. We had 8 guys with plenty of room. The property was absolutely gorgeous with great views of the marsh lands. It was very easy to access and get to golf courses and casinos. The house was very clean and stocked with everything we needed. We had a blast! A must stay on your next trip to Gulfport.

Great stay in Gulf Port

  • 4 of 5

We chose Gulf Port for many reasons but the item that sealed the deal is the property. The view and the size of the home really accommodated our desire to have a family gathering for Thanksgiving.

There were some cleaning issues noticed when we arrived such as the light fixture above the kitchen counter showed evidence of neglect, Dirty! The gas range top was not clean and the air vents were not clean.

There was a broken chair outside of the garage and a broken step at the rear of the house.

Again , the house was a wonderful place to stay and we would return if the home was available but the cleaning crew should do a better job of maintaining the house.

House was dirty and smelled

  • 1 of 5

Upon arrival the house smelled like fish due to the trash can not being taken out. Inside the house was very dusty, door knobs missing, grass not being cut, dirty dishes and the trash not being taken out also dirty linens. The bed in the guest room wasn't even on a bed frame. The pictures of the house on the website and what it actually looks like are totally different. Waste of money for a trip and also to note that the owner trying to scam me out of my refundable damage deposit. Having to take it to the higher ups with vrbo. If there was a option to give negative stars I would. Also to not when we left the house was cleaner than when we arrived and everything was taken care of. And due to arguing with the owner about giving me the refundable damage deposit that he claims I never paid he wants to give a poor review to me as a renter. You can find a lot nicer places down there with better owners than this place. Just be careful make sure you keep documents for the deposit refund. And be prepared to clean from top to bottom upon arrival.

Owner's Response: Please take this posters comments with a grain of salt. It took slightly longer than normal to return the damage deposit, Around 2 weeks from check out, due to VRBO changing the format of website. This was explained to this poster. My explanation was not good enough so I attached in an email screen shots of what I was looking at. It appeared that the damage deposit was never actually charged in the first. This coupled with the fact that he was berating me with emails and text messages made me very suspicious. There was no way the deposit would be returned until VRBO had given me the go ahead in writing. This tenant was given a 1 star rating due to his actions contacting VRBO and causing a lot of completely unnecessary issues. If you were so unsatisfied why wait a month to leave a review?

Slice of Paradise

  • 4 of 5

This property is located directly on the water. Every view from the home you can see water!! Sunrise and sunsets are breathtaking. The neighbors are friendly. There is a Wal-Mart about 3 miles away. We found a fabulous bakery called Electric Maid. If you need great bread or sweets, check it out. My husband and I use HomeAway exclusively for our vacations. We have rented many different properties in many different parts of the country. The owners were easy to work with as far as the booking process. We had a few additional requests, which they considered, but were unable to accommodate. Which was ok. We completely understand their reasoning. We did not hear from the owners at all during our stay. It's quite unusual. Every place we have rented the owner has made contact at some point to make sure the accommodations are acceptable and that everything is in good order. The reason we are giving the property only 4 stars is because upon our arrival, the home was dirty. Whoever the cleaning crew is needs someone to check their work. Their were dust bunnies, old goldfish crackers in the chair by the TV, the magazine rack and glass table top was filthy. The bed linens except for the master bedroom, have either stains or they were not laundered after the last guests. We really aren't sure which it was.. The couch and chair by the television are very dirty. In desperate need of a cleaning. As far as the kitchen goes, it's not well stocked. There aren't enough plates or cups. There is plenty of silverware. These are very small things in our minds. A bit of attention to detail by the cleaning crew and this place would be 5 star. We would rent again, but we would have the owners meet us there to be sure everything was in order when we check in.

The house was great we really enjoyed setting on the deck watching the wildlife and the fish . The house could use some brighter lights in the kitchen . That and the coffee maker leaking are the only complaints. Nice quiet neighborhood . We are would definitely stay here again !
