Recent Mississippi reviews

  • Felt like we were at home! So cozy!

    "My family and I have never been to Gulfport, MS. Ms. Rosemarie has a wonderful sense of humor and we felt like she was an extension of our family. The cottage was very clean and cozy. I was able to wash clothes and there were lots of towels and every supply you could think of, right down to stuff to bar-b-q with, including a grill! This will be our vacation spot when we visit again in the Spring. The owners are very thoughtful and accommodating. Thank you!"

    "My family and I really enjoyed this condo! The unit is conveniently located near the stairwell and the pool and beach are literally steps away! There are also fantastic views of the beach and pool area from the balconies. The beach was quiet, pool was never crowded, and the whole place is very family oriented. We will definitely be back."

  • You will be raving about The Beachview long after the vacation is over

    "What a fantastic place! My husband and I stayed in cottage #3. It was clean, comfortable and cosy; perfect for a couple. We had everything we needed to come home to after a day of exploring the beautful Gulf Coast; nice furnishings, well stocked kitchen, a decent shower with plenty of hot water, and a big bed. We walked along the beach most mornings. It was great to leave the car and take just a short stroll to the shimmering waters of the Gulf. There are so many casual eating places nearby as well as some top-notch restaurants serving, in our opinion, some the best seafood we have ever had. Sitting on the porch in early evening with a glass of wine and watching the orange sunset was a joy. We felt safe secure and very blessed to be in such a beautiful place in the world. Barney, the owner, is the nicest, most helpful guy you will ever meet. He was always available to answer any questions and to check if there was anything else we needed. Just one word of caution: The Beachview will probably spoil you, like it did us. When visiting the Gulf Coast, why would anyone stay at a hotel when they could savor the atmosphere at the Beachview Cottages?"

    "We stayed in this condo with some friends for the Presbyterian game weekend. It was absolutely perfect! Very clean & had everything we needed! Debi went out of her way to accommodate us, even mailing back a shirt we accidentally left there. Our daughters are contemplating attending Ole Miss so we came for a college/game visit. If they decide to attend, we will be definitely be contacting Debi to book more stays!"

Mississippi Travel Tips

Getting to Mississippi Vacation Rentals

Mississippi is a state in the southern region of the United States. It is bordered by Alabama to the east, Tennessee to the north, Arkansas to the northwest, and Louisiana to the south and southeast. It also has just under 100 miles of coastline that run along the Gulf of Mexico. The capital city is Jackson which is centrally located within the state. The Jackson Evers International Airport currently hosts several of the major North American airlines on regular commercial flights. If you are planning a vacation on the Gulf Coast, the closest airport is in New Orleans which is located in Louisiana. It is just a short 40-mile drive from New Orleans to the border of Mississippi. The major vacation towns include Biloxi resorts and Gulfport resorts, which are between 70 and 80 miles from New Orleans. Upon your arrival, if you plan to explore the region, the best way to get around is by car. There is an extensive and well-maintained road network. As long as you have a road map or GPS, you should easily be able to navigate your way around. If you are flying in from destinations further afield, you can arrange a rental car from either of the airports for the duration of your stay.

Best Time of Year to Visit Mississippi Resort Rentals

Mississippi enjoys a long summer and relatively short winter. This makes it a popular summer vacation destination. While most people still tend to travel during the peak holiday season of July and August, the longer summer season means that you can still enjoy good weather outside of peak season. In the summer months, the temperatures average around 85 degrees Fahrenheit. The warmest month is traditionally July. During the winter months, the temperatures average 48 degrees Fahrenheit, with the coldest month being January. The northern interior is generally more temperate that the coastal areas. Occasional snowfalls are not uncommon in the central and northern parts; however, it is seldom significant amounts and it usually quickly melts away. Most of the rainfall occurs during the summer months in the form of short-lived but dramatic thunderstorms. The Gulf Coast is particularly prone to hurricanes that blow across the Gulf of Mexico in the late summer and early fall months. The interior of the state usually gets the dregs of the tropical storms which results in heavy rainfall.

Music Legends at Mississippi Condos

Mississippi has a rich cultural heritage. Like its neighboring states, it has a strong music tradition with the signature music style being the Blues. In Clarksdale, you will find the Delta Blues Museum where you can see memorabilia and photographs of some of the great Blues legends. There are also numerous Blues Bars across the state where you can hear your favorite tune. Tupelo, which is in northeast Mississippi, is the birthplace of Elvis Presley. Here, you can tour his childhood home which is a humble two-room house. Next door is a museum which contains many different memorabilia items that detail his life. You can also take a stroll through town and see the fairgrounds where he performed early in his career or the hardware store where he bought his first guitar. For country music fans, you can visit Meridian which is the hometown of Jimmy Rogers. The Jimmy Rogers Museum in town pays tribute to this country music legend.

Visitors to Mississippi

Mississippi is a state that attracts a diverse range of visitors. Many come to visit the museums attributed to music legends but the state has much more to offer. It has a rich historical heritage with many museums. There are also many excellent golf courses where golfing enthusiasts can enjoy a round. The natural attractions are ideal for outdoor enthusiasts that enjoy hiking, mountain biking or RV-ing.
