  • Better than I ever imagined!

    "Thank you so much for sharing your home with us!! We had a wonderful week of rest and relaxation. I have never used this website before and have to admit, I was a little scared it might not be as perfect as listed; however, your home is even more beautiful than in the pictures and the view is spectactular!!! Thank you so much for making this such a wonderful experience for us. We will definitely be back! I also have to give kudos to the staff at Sienna. They are all very pleasant. While we didn't use their services for anything, we did visit with them a little each day."

  • Meeting with the family

    "The home is beautifully decorated and comfortable, the kitchen is stocked better then mine for large group cooking, needs a gallon pitcher. Close to casino, beach, and small water park but a bit of a drive to Biloxi. Nice big back yard with a gas grill, a picnic table or patio furniture would have been great. Back yard fenced but not completely pet friendly there was no skirting on the house so the dog could get out. Side street very busy, cars speeding. Train noise not a problem. Use caution with baths/shower for small children water gets to hot. Would love to stay again, family is already talking about meeting back up next year, owner was very considerate. Bobby thank you for a wonderful stay!"

  • Cozy Beach Cottage

    "This was a last minute find. We were on our way to Gulfport MS. to help with a wedding in Bay St. Louis. We could not have ask for a nicer place. Within walking distance to the beach, 2/2 slept all 6 of us comfortably. 6 girls and the hot water never ran out!! So much nicer than a hotel and cheaper too!!! Would highly recommend it! Thanks"

  • Exactly what we were looking for

    "When we planned our family vacation we had some very specific needs in mind. We wanted someplace where we could relax, swim, and kayak without the need to drive somewhere every day. We wanted enough bedrooms so everyone could have their own private space. And we wanted easy access to Gulfport, the beach, and New Orleans so we could fill our week-long stay with fun activities. River Lookout met our needs and then some. The house was comfortable, well supplied, and beautifully maintained. The beach area and dock were perfect for us. We launched our kayaks directly from the beach and had very enjoyable paddles both upstream and downstream. The dock area was especially nice - the rope swing provided endless entertainment for the young and the not so young. Finally, the hot tub was a great spot for relaxation and conversation even for the warm June evenings. River Lookout served as a convenient home base for excursions to New Orleans, Beauvior, the gator ranch, and some excellent seafood restaurants. Patricia and Grady were very prompt and helpful for all our requests both when arranging our visit and during our stay. We'd love to return!"

Many of the homes near the beachfront have open decks looking out onto the ocean. This is a great place to have a late afternoon barbecue and to enjoy a chilled glass of wine at the end of the day.

Vacation rentals are affordable alternatives that allow you to spend your hard-earned dollars on fun and recreation rather than accommodation without skimping on comfort.

Things to See and Do near Gulfport

The beaches near Gulfport have soft white sands and relatively calm waters. This is a result of the barrier islands providing a protective band off the coast. Kids can play in the shallows and parents can relax under the shade of an umbrella. Certain sections of beach are sanctuaries for nesting seabirds. Visitors are asked to tread lightly when passing through. Photographers can snap some great photos of the birds.

There are ferries that do daily excursions out to the barrier islands. Ship Island is just an hour away and well known as a great surf spot. Deck chairs and umbrellas can be hired upon arrival and it’s a great place to spend a day out in the sun. Be sure to pack your hat and loads of sunscreen when heading to the beach.

The Walter Museum of Art has original artworks on display as well as a series of rotating exhibits. Another art museum worth visiting is the O’Keefe Museum of Art which features works by George Ohr, an eccentric local resident artist of Biloxi. The Lynn Meadows Discovery Center is the ideal place to take the family. The interesting interactive exhibits inspire fun and learning to kids of all ages.
