About Nancy Mustaikis

We are from Michigan and have been coming to the Mississippi Gulf Coast for Vacations for over 30 years. We consider this area one of the best kept secrets in the United States. The weather in the winter is very much like our Michigan summers. Our orginal home in Gulfport we bought in 1999 and after Hurricane Katrina we purchased this home to renovate and live in while working on our original home. We kept this cottage for our friends and family to stay in when they came to visit during the winter months. The area is very quiet as very few houses have been rebuilt since Katrina. If you are traveling with pets, children or just want to relax the area is wonderful.

Nancy Mustaikis purchased this house in 2006

Why Nancy Mustaikis chose Mississippi

We grew up along the shores of Lake Michigan and wanted to be near the water. The Mississippi Gulf Coast has 25 miles of sandy beaches. The area feels like a small town but has all the amenities of the city within 15 miles. I love to grow flowers and my husband likes to drag race and we can do both all winter in Gulfport. Most important is there is no snow to shovel in the Winter.

What makes this house unique

We are concert lovers and car show people and there are plenty of both here every weekend. If we want to go to New Orleans for the big Mardi Gras Parades or catch a cruise ship for a week we are only 80 miles away.

This property was everything we were expecting for our first family vacation. Amazing property!!

  • 5 of 5

FIRST FAMILY VACATION TOGETHER.

Our family would like to thank Ms Nancy and her husband for the wonderful experience of a vacation at a home away from home. This property was very clean convenient and comfortable. The privacy was excellent. She even left a huge Easter basket to accommodate all of my kids and eggs and dye for our kids. The house was decorated with Easter decor as well. There was beach toys for the kids. We are breakfast on the back patio looking at the beautiful beach. We had the best time ever. If it wasn't for having to work we would have stayed even longer. P.S Miss Nancy and Steve the kids said thank you so much for making their first vacation experience wonderful and for the candy and eggs. I would recommend this vacation home to anybody we will be back soon

just like home

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed my stay .I didn't want to leave.It was very relaxing and lots of things to do,just wish I had more time. The bed and was really nice for sleeping and the house had everything that was needed. The only down side was no cable tv but then again I wasn't there long enough to really watch it. Someday I hope to go back there again,maybe in the wintertime.So much better than staying in a hotel

perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year to stay at Sandcastle Cottage, and we felt just as much at home as the first time. It is a beautiful cottage, with a beach view, in a very quiet neighborhood. We will definitely return again next year!

Our "Home"

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here in May 2016 and it was exactly what we desired. It was quiet, peaceful, close to the beach, and well-equipped. We spent most of our time in Gulfport and the surrounding areas but when it was time to come "home," we knew we had the perfect place to lay our head at night. I recommend this to anyone staying in Gulfport. You won't be disappointed.
