About Steve Rowan

General contractor living in Acworth Ga that specializes in storm damage. Married with 2 children and 3 grandchildren

Steve Rowan purchased this house in 2005

Why Steve Rowan chose Mississippi

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Found Ocean Springs which is a great place to visit. Went to New Orleans for 2 days. Weather was wonderful! Race track in New Orleans. Even though I was sick the entire time I had a great visit.

very cozy and secluded.

  • 4 of 5

the house was adorable and close to everything. we walked to the beach and dined at local restaurants and donated to the local casinos. overall the house was nicer than it looked on line and everybody loved it. the trash is picked up twice a week which comes in handy if entertaining. thanks Steve!

Perfect home base!

  • 4 of 5

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 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.

Owner's Response: Melanie I am glad you enjoyed your stay. I am sorry I must have overlooked the pet deposit when refunding your deposit. It has been really hectic with my business lately and it was a total overlook on my part. I just refunded it. I hope you call us again when returning to the Ms Gulf Coast return guest get a additional 10% off their next stay. Thanks again and I look forward to talking to you in the future.

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
