This little beauty has it all! Your own private sanctuary great for relaxing, getting away or taking in the entire coastal scene. Cute, cottage style home, totally furnished, 2 blocks from the beach, surrounded by large live oaks. Minutes' walk to the water and downtown Gulfport where Jones Park, Gulfport Harbor and Ship Island excursions await you. The Ship Island Ferry will take you to view the blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico while dolphins swim along the side of the boat as it ferry's you to the Island! Ship Island resides on the other side of the barrier islands surrounding the beach.

Take the scenic drive down the beach to all the coastal casinos where you will find entertainment, food and shopping along with trying your luck at gaming.

A boat dock is located in the Jones Park area and you are 1 hour from New Orleans.

The beauty of the cozy cottage lies with the private location yet close to all restaurants, attractions and night life. Located near historic downtown Gulfport, walking distance to Shaggy's Gulfport, Salutes Italian Bistro and many other dining and entertainment choices. This area is growing and beautifying!

Carpeted bedrooms and tile floors including a washer/dryer. Large deck adorns the back of the home so you may enjoy the beautiful back yard with 8 ft privacy fence.

Come visit and exchange the noise of heavy traffic with the soothing sounds of the gulf and the train conductors' friendly wave as he passes by. Cottage has most everything for our visitors needs.

Waiting for you! Just bring your suitcase!

About The Owner

We have enjoyed our 'Cozy Cottage' having our morning coffee sitting on the deck walking straight out the French doors. We wanted to share our love of the place and the Mississippi Gulf Coast with others. The cottage has a charm all its own and has captured the hearts of many who have had the pleasure spending time within it's welcoming walls!

We are a military family and have relocated to D.C. although we have assistance locally for anything that may be needed.

The Owner purchased this house in 2003

Why The Owner chose Mississippi

The 'Cozy Cottage' was originally purchased for it's overall uniqueness and the feeling of relaxation you get while staying there. Whether it is listening to the birds sing, sipping your favorite beverage, or reading a good book, you can enjoy it all while lounging on the deck in the back yard which is adorned with an 8 ft fence for privacy!

This is our second time to stay at the Cozy Cottage. The name says it all, its very cozy and inviting. My husband (bless and I took my girlfriends down to Gulfport for a litte R&R. They loved the house and really enjoyed the stay. They were blown away by the closet space in this litte

cottage. We all had our on recliner, which was nice after shopping all day at the outlet mall. The owners are VERY easy to deal with, VERY easy checking/out. Ms. Rose Marie can tell ya all the does and don't about Gulfport. We truly LOVE this cottage. We will continue to return, won't stay anywhere else!

Great, fun, super cute house!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 loved staying at this house. It was easy to access, very clean, amazing plush carpet, decorated so cute, comfortable, and met all our needs. With it being on par, price wise, with hotels, we would pick this 100 times over just due to having a "home" during our vacation. The deck in the back was awesome for having meals outside, which we did several times. Also, with being a few minute walk to the beach, our young kids could make the trek very easily. We would stay here again, for sure!

cozy it is !

  • 5 of 5

This is the 2nd time we stayed at this cozy little house . It was so nice away from people and things. The trains that pass through out the day and night are hardly even bothersome once you get use to it . It is kept clean and has all the needs you want to be away from home but at home lol lol . The only thing I regret it is not closer to Bilox. It is a ways to travel back and fourth to where you are going in the Bilox area. Maybe Mike and Maire can find a little house like this to buy and rent out in the Bilox area and if they do I hope they let us know because we will put that as our permanent spot when ever we go there . If you find something not acceptable or something that concerns you just let Mike know and he will fix the issue . Very fast in returning your calls !

Owner's Response: Thank you Martha for you review! After 6 years of sharing the "Cozy Cottage" with vacationing travelers we still are delighted in hearing from our guests. Biloxi is a quick 10 miles straight down the beach and what a view you will have on your drive there. There are wonderful restaurants, nightlife and beach activities just steps away from the cottage in Gulfport. Hope to see you back soon!

Quaint! Lovely!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place the Cozy Cottage is! It was beautifully decorated and had everything you needed for an enjoyable stay. This was our first time to Gulfport. We got beignets one morning from the town pharmacy/gift shop, and ate awesome food from so many restaurants (Half Shell Oyster House, McElroy's, Salute, Blow Fly Inn, Baja Beach). The kids and I were able to walk to the beach on one of the nicer days, rather than drive!! Oh what a back yard at the cottage..just wish it would have been a little warmer to enjoy completely! Michael & Anna were wonderful..they always responded quickly and answered all my questions and concerns. The kiddos enjoyed the day at Big Play Family Fun Center and Lynn Meadows Discovery Center.

Owner's Response: Laura, We thank you for your kind words. I had to smile when I read you found one of the best kept secrets in Gulfport....the local downtown Pharmacy where time has stood still! It's wonderful isn't? As you mentioned and experienced, there are many restaurants within walking distance. You can actually walk out the cottage door, take a few steps to the corner and have an incredible view of the sun sparkling off the water. You just need to take a few more minutes to walk the block or so to put your toes in the sand! We welcome you back as our guest! The cottage awaits! Michael & Anna Michael & Anna
