After coming to Gulfport Ms after Hurricane Katrina I was looking for a house near the beach to rebuild and live in while working in the Gulfport Long Beach area.We decided on this house for its proximaty to the beach and the great things Long Beach had to offer.After living in the house for 5 years I relocated back to Atlanta and decided to keep the house for a vacation home. My wife and I absolutly love our home and plan to retire there in the future. We vacation there every chance we get and decided to let other people enjoy our home and everything the Mississippi Gulf Coast has to offer. We are sure after vacationing here you will feel the same.
After looking at this house and the floorplan I knew it was the house we wanted. It was a 3 bedroom 1 bath home with large entertaining kitchen.We decided to do away with one of the bedrooms and turn it into a master bathroom suite with a large walk in tiled shower and 6 foot jacuzzi tub. We totally gutted and remodeled the home to our likings after Hurricane Katrina.
My husband's family has a reunion in Long Beach every two years. It's always been tradition to stay at a specific hotel; however, as families' children get older, but not old enough to have their own family, some of us have started renting houses for our individual family unit, and to have our pets with us. Although we didn't spend a lot of time at the house because of reunion functions, it was perfect as our home base. The kitchen is really big, with not only a table but barstools......in case you spill over. The house is well stocked with paper goods, towels, cooking utensils, etc. All rooms are a nice size and the privacy fenced backyard is great, again offering ample seating. The pictures don't really do justice to all the space. The neighborhood is quiet and convenient to any of your needs - grocery, restaurants, beach. We were not at all disturbed by the trains even though the tracks are close.
We did not have to contact the owners other than to say we'd arrived and that we'd left, but I feel that they'd be responsive if needed. One caveat: the website states that the pet fee is refundable upon checkout, but I don't think that is the case.
This is an aside.......Now, I have to say that I've always enjoyed booking with VRBO. It WAS an excellent site to find fun and unique places to stay, while enjoying personal contact with the owners. In all the years we've used it, we had only one not so great experience. Sadly, I'll be looking for alternatives now that the site has been sold to Expedia. The (non)Service Fee that is charged is just pure money for the big guy - didn't see one benefit from paying it.
This cottage was a beautiful home away from home! The location was fantastic-close to scrumptious restaurants and the clean beaches. There were plenty of docks to fish from and the shrimp boats had great deals on their fresh caught shrimp! The cottage was absolutely perfect-everything you could possibly want is there for you! The neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful.The kitchen is huge and fully stocked with everything. The owner Steve gave us very helpful suggestions from fishing spots to good restaurants!! My husband and I definitely recommend this wonderful home and we will definitely be back! We left knowing that this is our new vacation place! Patty and Bob W.
Excellent location we enjoyed the beach, and the local restaurants were wonderful. Our condo was clean and with the fenced in back yard we were able to let our family dog play outside just like at our house. The price was good, the kitchen was very large, and for a 2 bedroom 2 bath condo the space was large.
Really enjoyed my time here . The cottage provides everything you need for a clean, comfortable and relaxing base in which to explore the beach, Long Beach, Biloxi, Gulfport, New Orleans and all the interesting things on offer to see and do. A well-stocked kitchen if you want to cook and also some great restaurant recommendations from the very friendly and helpful owner Steve if you want to go out. Biggest jacuzzi bathtub in the master bedroom I have ever seen with plenty of hot water to enjoy it too!
This home is located in Long Beach, MS, about one block from the Gulfport city limits. We enjoyed our stay and walking the beach areas each morning and evening. The location provided easy access to Gulfport and Biloxi. The trip to Ship Island was a highlight of the visit. I should have taken fishing gear and fished from the piers or waded along the beach. The house is an older home with comfortable furnishings, and a well equipped kitchen. The owners have a dog and there was a slight dog odor when we arrived, but within two days we didn't notice it any more. The train tracks less than a block away caused some concern about noise, but aside from a few times at night during the week, we were not really bothered by the noise. The owner was very responsive to questions, and there is a great supply of pamphlets and brochures about area activities and dining. We enjoyed great seafood dinners at Steve's Marina on two evenings during our stay.
A short walk to the fishing pier to catch speckeled trout and redfish.Spend a afternoon with the kids at the Gulf Island Water Park.Or spend the evenings enjoying some of freshest seafood the Gulf has to offer. Only a 1 hour drive to the French Quarter in New Orleans and minutes away from all the casinos. Enjoy one of many fishing charters in the area and return home to cook it in our outdoor fryer
