Gulfport house description

This house is a 'Peace' of Paradise! It is quiet, on the waterfront, and close to all the action! Great views and great amenities. We strive to provide our guests with all the comforts of home, plus!

Our house is richly decorated with 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, a living room, dining area, and kitchen with a bar. It is an open floor plan with all tile floors. The Master has a brand new Sterns and Foster king size bed with attached bath. The second bedroom has a queen bed and the third has a twin and a full bed. All beds have luxury sheets and bedding. There are flat screen televisions in the living room (47'), master (42') and second bedroom (40'). There is a 20' flat screen T.V. in the 3rd bedroom. There is a full bath in the hallway. The living room has all brand new leather furniture with reclining features. The dining room and bar have all oak furniture. The kitchen is fully stocked with utensils and cooking equipment. There is a Keurig Coffee maker with starter pods. Cable and high speed wireless or corded internet are provided.

There are water views from the brightly lit living, dining areas and two bedrooms. The den/living room connects to the covered porch flanking the front and side of the house. There is a gate blocking the stairs for children or pets. We have a doggie door leading onto the deck. Well behaved pets are welcome!

There is a large grass front yard that is child and pet friendly. There are balls and other equipment provided for your family's enjoyment. For quiet or rainy days we have a cabinet full of family friendly board games.

There are gorgeous views from the covered porches- one of a bend in the Biloxi River and another of our wooded canal. The porches are raised on pilings approximately 14 feet off the ground. There is covered parking and a deck elevator installed.

Within ten minutes you can be at the beach or the casinos. There is live music in the area every evening. We provide a list of all our favorite places to eat and things to do. We also provide directions so you can buy fresh seafood and produce to cook at home. This area has some of the best seafood in the world!

The cottage is on a canal off of Richard's Lake, which is directly connected to the Biloxi River. It has 70 feet of bulk head water frontage, and a deck/pier that is approximately 65 feet long ranging from 12 to 18 feet wide. The pier is great for adirondack chairs (provided), relaxing, fishing, docking boats (no-wake area), etc.. As mentioned above, there is a great view of main river from the house. We like being on the canal, just off the river, because it has far less boat traffic than the main river. You can dock a fairly large boat at the pier. It's about 4-5 feet deep off the pier and our children love to swim here. Two kayaks are provided for your enjoyment. Just a few minutes down the river you can dock your boat at a couple of waterin' holes - ''Orangutans'' and 'Daffy's On the River' You can also drive your car to the above mentioned establishments and launch your boat. About 15 to 20 minutes down river you'll find Grasshopper Island (a sand-bar where the locals park their boats and play), the Tchoutacabouffa (pronounced chew-tah-ka-buf) River, and back bay Biloxi (which eventually feeds into the Gulf of Mexico).

Gulfport-Biloxi has some of the best fishing found anywhere! In the 'Back Bay' of Biloxi you can catch Speckled Trout and Redfish (to have any luck you'll have to fish from a boat). From our pier you can use the poles and lures provided. In the spring you can catch Bream on most every cast. As the weather gets warmer you can catch a few Blue Gill every now and then. With the right bait, and some luck, you can catch an occasional Bass.

Our area is known as 'Retreat Village'. We think of it as our own 'Peace' of Paradise.

The coast is a great place to live and play; but, as is true in any area next to the water, you have be prepared for tropical storms and hurricanes. During the storms and periods of extreme weather or even during extended periods of rain the river will rise onto the property, which is why the house is raised. The good news is that the weather folks are good at predicting and tracking these storms. The Harrison County Civil Defense puts out warning messages on the TV and on the radio. This shouldn't be a problem for you because you'll want to 'hit the road' as soon you hear of severe weather that causes the Biloxi River to flood. Our policy - if you need to evacuate, or if you're in doubt, just go and we'll work out something reasonable. If it is recommended that you evacuate due to rising water and you do not, we are not responsible for any losses that might be incurred.

Our policy is ABSOLUTELY NO SMOKING IN THE HOUSE. There are plenty of outdoor areas where you can smoke. Smokers are welcome but we require that you not smoke indoors or the upstairs porches (smoke can blow inside). If you smoke indoors you forfeit your deposit. No butts in the yard either please.
