About the property

New House 3 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Pet Friendly, Walk To Beach

The Gulf Breeze Depot (a Three Live Oaks property) is located in a quiet residential neighborhood within walking distance to the beach. The home is next to the train tracks but we don't think you will mind. We have used solid foam insulation and sound deadening windows to make this a quiet home. You can hear the trains but you don't have to turn up your t.v. or stop talking when they go by. The foam insulation not only deadens the sound but it keeps the house from shaking. What makes this a fun place to stay is that you can watch the trains go by from the large picture window in the dining room and you can see them from the living room window while relaxing on the sofa.

We have an extra large porch perfect for spending time with friends and family. The kids will have fun counting the train cars as they go by.

We have an in ground swimming pool with a large deck area with plenty of seating. The pool is 4 1/2 - 5 feet deep to make it perfect for playing volleyball/games or swimming. This is not a diving pool.The professional tropical landscaping makes it feel like your own private resort There is a fence separating the pool area from the rest of the yard. The pool will be open April 1- October 15th. It may open sooner and close later but I will only promise these dates. Our closing dates are approximate depending on the weather.

There is a 24'x24' two car garage and driveway entrance from 3rd Street and additional parking when you enter from the alley.

Upon arrival you are impressed with the exterior and then you get to walk inside and get amazed with the interior. We have bead board ceilings with a vaulted ceiling in the living room. The living room furniture is custom ordered from Bassett Furniture. Relax on the sectional sofa, chairs or the 'sleeper car'. What is a sleeper car? We made a bonus sleeping area in the living room inspired from the 'sleeper cars' inside of trains. It is hid behind curtains, once you open them, crawl into the nook and rest on the twin size mattress. It is situated where you can watch the large 60 inch tv from bed. Kid tested and loved.

Be sure and bring your Netflix login information as each t.v. is Netflix ready!

The bedrooms are all coastal themes and have ceiling fans. Three bedrooms each with a flat panel. The big bonus is the attached bathrooms for every bedroom. Even the 'sleeper car' guests get a bathroom of their own. Yes, you counted right, we have 4 full baths! The gas tankless hot water heater keeps everyone in hot showers. The bathrooms each have their own tile design.

The kitchen is well equipped with new appliances. The kitchen island seats three. The kitchen table seats 8. There is a 42' flat panel tv for the kitchen/dining room to share. We added two club chairs for added comfort while hanging out there.

The laundry room is right off the dining room making it easy to fold your laundry on the kitchen table. The washer and dryer are front loading extra large capacity.

Your coastal paradise awaits you and your family & friends!

Maximum number of guests is 10. Minimum age of primary renter is 28.

If traveling with a larger group we have other houses in walking distance to the Depot.

About Donna Rowland

We are semi-retired and live in Georgia. We go to the coast every chance we get. After 5 years of renting and coming to Gulfport we still enjoy every trip.

Donna Rowland purchased this house in 2012

Why Donna Rowland chose Mississippi

We chose this property for the size of the lot. We are hoping to put in a swimming pool this winter. This house is located right behind our Gulf Breeze Cottage and walking distance to our Gulf Breeze Tree House.

What makes this house unique

We love being this close to the trains. We built this house with travelers in mind. There are FOUR bathrooms!

If you love trains you must stay here. Outside you get to watch and hear them blow the whistle. Inside they sound like they are off in the distance. Due to our excellent soundproofing when building the house it is quieter than most houses much further away from the tracks. The inside of the house is amazing. Very comfortable yet stylish. New furniture, bedding and appliances. Local artwork throughout home. The best part may be all the bathrooms. Perfect house for sharing with friends or family. Every bedroom has a bathroom.

Hidden gem was a BIG hit with the family!!

  • 5 of 5

This property has everything you need. It was great having all the bedrooms/bathrooms which meant not having to tell someone to hurry up because they needed in (the bathroom). Most of my relatives live in Gulfport & they did not know about this property. I loved giving everyone a tour of the house. My granddaughter & niece loved watching the trains go by. And NO, you don't really hear them even @ night. The ages of the people staying in the house was from 3 years old to 90 years old. Of course swimming @ night in the pool was a hit with the kids & parents. I have used VRBO numerous times in different cities, & this place was the nicest we have stayed in.

Fantastic property! The home is adorable. It was very important for us to have a yard that was fully fenced for the dogs and this fit the ticket perfectly! Will definitely stay here again.

The Gulf Breeze Depot, and 4 generations of family all together

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 generations of family under one roof. There was plenty of room. 3 full bed rooms, 4 full baths, a recessed bed in a wall, and a trundle bed. Everyone was comfortable. The kitchen was to die for. Everything you need was provided, except your food. The appliances were the best you can buy. The house just seemed to be a home more than a rental. We loved everything about it. The yard is very spacious, 2 grills provided to cook outdoors. A pool that never seemed crowded with 7 people in it. I used the garage, and we had 2 more cars there and still had tons of room. The garage was a 2 1/2 car garage, but I am the only one that wanted to use it. We will most likely be back in a year or so. And I will surely be knocking on Donnas door. She and her husband provide the best property money can buy. A full 5 stars. Donna said it is pet friendly, but we don't have any pets, so I can't comment on this.
