Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps 8

You will know you are on vacation from the moment you walk through the door. Every room is a reflection of life on the coast. Decorated with beach decor and tranquil colors, you will have no problem relaxing. The furniture was custom ordered to ensure a look you won't find anywhere else. With an open floor plan, friends and family can visit with each other while sitting in the kitchen or reclining on the sofa. There is a great view of the Mississippi Sound from the living room. Soft cream hardwood floors flow throughout the house.

Each bedroom has its own unique style. The master bedroom has a queen size bed and 26'' wall mounted flat panel TV. Attached bathroom with antique claw foot tub and a walk-in marble shower. The second bedroom has a tall king size bed, and 32'' wall mounted flat panel TV. The third bedroom has two full size beds & 32' wall mounted Netflix ready tv, & french doors leading out to the deck and backyard.

All three bedrooms have room darkening curtains for the times you want a mid-day nap after an early round of golf, a fishing adventure, or maybe all night gambling. When you are hanging out in the living room enjoy the huge 60'' Netflix Ready TV in a custom built entertainment center. We provide wireless high speed internet so don't forget your laptop.

The house is located on a quiet historical street one block north of US90 (Beach Blvd). Most of the effects of Katrina have been cleared away but there are still empty lots that stand as a memorial to the devastation that coastal residents endured. If you enjoy walks, this is the street for you. We are one block from gorgeous white sandy beaches and a park is within walking distance with tennis courts and a playground.

.

Spend time outdoors in our landscaped yard, fully enclosed with a privacy fence. Cook on the natural gas grill while kids play on 'hopscotch' walkway. An outdoor table and chairs provides plenty of room for dining and a covered deck keeps you out of the sun while waiting on your meal.

The Ship Island Excursion docks just two miles from the house. In just 5 minutes you are at the Island View Casino in Gulfport or in 15 minutes you can be at one of the many casinos in Biloxi. Take a day trip to New Orleans 60 miles away.

The golf courses are too many to name. We invite you to stay at the Gulf Breeze Cottage and enjoy the year round fun the gulf coast has to offer! Please note the maximum occupancy of 9 at the Gulf Breeze Cottage and minimum age of renter 28.

If traveling in large groups and looking for multiple houses please check out our other properties walking distance from the Cottage.

If you are not familiar with Gulfport there are a couple things we like our prospective guests to know. There are train tracks that run approximately two blocks north of the beaches. You will be able to hear trains run from most anywhere you stay that you have access to the beaches. We personally love the beaches and the water there. Some people though are disappointed since they expect large waves and clear water. This is the Mississippi Sound and the water has a murky quality to it. It is very shallow and you can walk out in it without it getting very deep for quite a ways. We find the beaches peaceful by our house and seldom crowded. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and everyone has their own opinion of the perfect beach.

WE WANT OUR GUESTS TO BE AWARE THAT WE DO NOT ACCEPT WIRE TRANSFERS OR BANK TRANSFERS. WE WILL NEVER ASK YOU FOR ONE. We will initiate any payment request thru secure sites that offer protection for you. If you wish to confirm that any email that comes from us is legitimate, please call us.

About Donna Rowland

My husband and I enjoy this area so much we bought a second home here. We lead busy lives but this is our chance to catch our breath and just enjoy life a little because it sure is going by fast.

Donna Rowland purchased this house in 2009

Why Donna Rowland chose Mississippi

We looked at several locations along the coast but kept coming back to Gulfport. The beach is just a block away and the house is close to everything else we enjoy doing on vacation.

What makes this house unique

We have three vacation homes all within one block of each other. This can come in handy for groups and extended families.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Donna,



Your house is amazing! We loved it and took care of it like it was our own. I will pray that every tenant that you get will take special care of your home because all of the work and love that you have put into it is very evident. We loved the view and the peaceful backyard. We drove by the treehouse cottage and wished we had seen the inside. My mom especially loved her room with the big King bed and I loved mine with the soaker tub! I just can't say enough about how beautiful your house is. We noticed every detail, from the hand painted tiles on the backsplash and the corian counters, to the bosch appliances. Top of the line throughout--my mom really appreciated the quality of the linens! Thank you for letting us enjoy your wonderful vacation home! I can't wait to bring my husband there to see it!



Blessings,

Gulf Breeze Cottage is perfect

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from my stay at the gulf breeze cottage. My family and I stayed for 3 days to visit with my stepson who is deploying for iraq on the 10 th. Most motels and hotels were going from 80$ to 120$ a nite and you at best get 600 square feet and a microwave. The gulf breeze cottage gave us plenty of space to visit and the decor is beautifull. We were able to fix up all his favorite home cooked meals in the well furnished kitchen.I have stayed in timeshares before and this place beats them all. It seems like everything is brand new. Just wanted you to know that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to staying again.

Comfortable, clean & convenient!

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay very much! Plenty of room and all the essentials to make a meal for a family. Only issue was a parking one. The alley in the back was convenient to use; however there was a large hole with a traffic barrel in it-directly across from it was a garbage can . First night not a problem, then the garbage can was moved further into the alley-that made no room to get between the barrel and the garbage can. We moved the garbage can closer to the fence of the residence. We evidently made the residents mad because upon returning, both the barrel and garbage can blocked the alley. We chose to park at the front of the house for the rest of our visit.

We also did not find an iron- only a steamer.

Owner's Response: I was not aware of an issue with one entrance into the alley. I have been unable to make a trip to my property this summer. Thanks for letting me know as I have called the city to have them repair the hole. There is an iron there, I have instructed my housekeeper to put a note on the counter indicating where it is stored.

Great location and lots of room

  • 4 of 5

Nice property with plenty of room. Good amount of seating and everything in good condition. Walk to beach is very short but you do have to get across a bit of traffic. Great to warch the fireworks on the beach. Pics made the back yard seem bigger than it really was but we werent able to be out there much as the mosquitoes were horrendous. Also if you plan to grill please check the grill first. We bought steaks and burgers to grill and found the grill to be in really bad condition. Someone came to look when sent text to owner but nothing was fixed on the grill while we were there. Security system worked great and parking was behind the house. The day we left which was garbage day and someone comes to put out the trashcan and it was completely full and we could not use it. We had to find another garbage can down the alley to get rid of trash. I looked for an iron while there but never found it. There was an ironing board. Maybe the iron is there and somehow I just couldnt find it. All in all good stay!

Owner's Response: We strive to provide the best vacation experience possible for our guests and regret these issues but sometimes mother nature can get the best of you. There has been an enormous amount of rain this summer which caused a temporary increase in the mosquito population. The city has sprayed our neighborhood and additionally we have sprayed our yard but the rain just kept washing away our efforts. That same moisture rusted out a section of the burners in the gas grill. It could not be repaired during their stay as this was the first we were aware there was a problem and the parts have to be ordered. My housekeeper did try to make contact with them by knocking on the door to see if they wanted a charcoal grill brought over but there was no answer. I am sorry that this happened during their stay, my staff cares and did try to help out. They were mistakenly using the wrong garbage can for that house as our garbage can is beside the house. They were using the one behind the house in the alley which was full because it belonged to the house across the driveway and was not our can. They have to set it beside our driveway to be emptied. It is then removed after collection and only sits there for pickup so it will always be full. We explain where our can is kept in our arrival instructions. Our can was empty and sitting conveniently right outside the laundry room door. We do have an iron and ironing board in the house. My housekeeper leaves her contact information on the counter. A phone call to her could have helped them locate the iron and would have resolved the garbage can issue. Taking garbage to a neighbor's can was definitely not needed. We personally respond to any phone calls or messages 24 hours a day.
