About Vicki Heidingsfelder and Sara Jane Heidingsfelder

I have a degree in Building Construction and worked in the industry until I had 4 children. I later became a music teacher and after acquiring many vacation rentals have retired from teaching. This is my full time occupation now and I am loving it!

Vicki Heidingsfelder and Sara Jane Heidingsfelder purchased this house in 2013

Why Vicki Heidingsfelder and Sara Jane Heidingsfelder chose Gulfport

I bought this property because it was right down the street from one of my favorite rentals. I thought it was so cute and could make it even cuter.

What makes this house unique

Because I have been watching this house for years and have completely renovated it, I believe it will now be my favorite!

We were very pleased with our stay. Location is perfect. Lots of great places to eat and shop nearby. Beach is just 2-3 blocks away. The cottage is beautifully decorated and very clean. Accommodated a group of 8 comfortably. Beds slept well. We had our fur babies along for the trip and they loved playing in the large fenced in back yard. Vicki is super easy to work with and excellent communication. I highly recommend this property.

Adorable, Great Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed 3 nights in this adorable cottage. Nicely decorated, roomy, fantastic location, functionality was dead on, equipped with everything you need. We are building a cottage of our own so we stay in one of Vickie's great cottages when in town while checking progress on our Long Beach Cottage. We enjoyed the back deck, grilled and relaxed. This may sound a bit weird as some guests complain about the train whistle; however I LOVED it... very nostalgic. We will return for another stay next month. Thank you Vickie, Great Owner/Landlord!! Your soon to be neighbor. The LeBlanc’s

Loved "Cozy Cottage"

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our two little dogs stayed at "Cozy Cottage" from 7-24-16 to 7-31-16 and had a wonderful time. The house was perfect for our needs. Our dogs enjoyed running around in the big fenced yard while we sat on the deck and enjoyed the evenings. We enjoyed the house so much that we didn't even go out to eat but preferred to cook our meals and eat in. There is a charcoal grill and the kitchen is well stocked with dishes and pots and pans. There is a Winn Dixie and a Froogles grocery store very close and a Walmart Supercenter not too far away. The bed in the master bedroom was very comfortable. All appliances were in very good condition and worked very well. This is a very comfortable house and we felt very at home in it. We left there yesterday morning and I already miss that little "Cozy Cottage".

We were 4 adults and two dogs

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time renting from Ms. Vickie and as always we enjoyed our stay. The layout of this house was good, and you have everything you wold need. It was really clean as always. The two restaurants we ate at was Shaggy's and Shrimp Basket both were great places to eat and the prices were good also. We like to BQ and both of the places we stayed at had a BQ Pit. We like the location it was quite and not far from the beach. We love hanging out on the beach and my dogs loved running and playing in the water. Like I said this is our second year renting and we will surely rent from Ms. Vickie again. Craig, Debora, Trisha, Lonnie and my two pets Bella and Big Pup..." New Iberia Louisiana 7/4/16 - 7/7/2016.... It's worth renting any of her houses so pack your clothes and enjoy......

Weekend Getaway

  • 3 of 5

My family and I rented this house and another down the street (by same owner) for a long weekend. I would love to give it a 5 star review, and for the home itself, I have no complaints. The home was nicely appointed, clean, and well equipped. Others have complained about the train noise, but it did not bother my group.

However, there was miscommunication between myself and the owner that led to a good deal of confusion. When I initially inquired about the home in February, I asked if it would fit my group of about 15-17 for 2 nights. I was told no, that we would need 2 homes, which she had available. I replied back that I was interested in the 2 homes, but would like to have them for 3 nights and gave the dates. I got a reply back with the amount of the rental for each home. I agreed and asked what amount we needed to send to reserve the homes. Unfortunately, I never received a confirmation email, but did message the owner many times through the homeaway app. I was booked for 2 nights, instead of 3. We had 3 couples and 1 child in 1 home and 2 couples and 6 children in the other. One the 3rd morning after staying 2 nights, we were told that we were supposed to have left by 10 am and that someone was coming in that day and we had to leave. I was very upset and showed both Vicki (via text) and her daughter the messages on the homeaway app. I was told there was nothing they could do and in fact was asked if I thought they were giving us 1 night for free. I said I asked for 3 nights, was given a price and paid that amount. The owner gave no other solution except to say that one of the homes was available for an additional night and we were charged another night with a very slight discount.

I felt very inconvenienced and penalized for this misunderstanding. Again, the homes were amazing, my only complaint is about the miscommunication.

Loved the house, loved the neighborhood and loved the coast!

  • 5 of 5

I called Vicki Friday morning and my family of four had the house that night and Saturday night. I couldn't believe it! We took our elderly toy poodle and was happy to have a fenced back yard. We had every thing we needed. The house was very clean. The beds were very comfortable. My girls walked to the beach by themselves and found a quiet clean beach to hang out and relax. Our daughters had their own bathroom, which was nice and my husband had his coffee every morning.The neighborhood was quiet and peaceful. At the owner's recommendation, we ate at Darwell's Cafe and enjoyed the food and the live music. Every one was happy, so I had peace and relaxation!
