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.

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. We are pet friendly for small well behaved housebroken dogs only with prior approval and a non refundable pet fee.

This is our group's third stay in the Gulf Breeze Depot. We plan to return in June of 2018 for our summer trip. The home and grounds are well kept, and the service (if needed) is readily available.

The house and property was absolutely immaculate. Loved the front porch!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 9 had the best time at Gulf Depot. We all had our own space and bathrooms which truly makes the vacation better with 2 parents, 4 young adult and teenage daughters + 3 young adult sons. Each room had its own bathroom stocked with plenty of towels and TVs in each room. We cooked breakfast every morning and a few dinners using the grill outside. I just loved the kitchen and the huge island. We didn't use the pool much as we have a pool at home, however we did make our way to the ocean everyday. It is beautiful short walk. The neighborhood is very quiet and the property is somewhat secluded. We did hear the train, however it didn't bother us at all. Also loved that there were two driveways to park, outside porch and a screened porch. Honestly I can't say enough - we have stayed in several VRBO homes before and this one was by far the best in that is accommodated our family perfectly. This was our first time to Gulfport and already making plans to come back. Thank you so much to Donna and her team for making our experience a good one.

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 Gulfport

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!


Walk to the beach. Close to Ship Island excursion launch & Jones Park. . Watch the trains go by from the front porch of the Depot.
