About Vicki Heidingsfelder and Sara Jane Heidingsfelder

This is our second vacation rental. We live very close to this house, so keeping up with it is easy. We have always enjoyed fixing up houses so getting to furnish it was a bonus. Living so close to the beach is really a great place to live and we would like to share it with others. When we travel we also stay in VRBO properties.

Vicki Heidingsfelder and Sara Jane Heidingsfelder purchased this House in 2010

                                                            We loved this cozy little house!!

                                                            Dawn M.

                                                            The house was just the right size for the seven of us. We traveled with four kids and it was great that they were able to share one room. Mornings and evenings on the screened in front porch was very enjoyable. We definitely plan on returning again.

                                                            Lovely, spacious getaway just blocks from the beach

                                                            Sarah C.

                                                            I visited with a group of friends and we had plenty of space and a very comfortable stay. The house is within walking distance to the beach and downtown Gulfport. I would definitely stay again.

                                                            Moranda H.

                                                            We really enjoyed it. Location was perfect, very easy to get to stores and the beach. Clean and cozy! Backyard fenced in and perfect for the kids! And the house had just about every cooking utensils needed. My family and I loved every minute of our vacation and having a nice cozy place to stay made it even better! We will be booking with the cozy cottage again!

                                                            Nice Walk to the Beach

                                                            Jessica B.

                                                            I'm not sure if we've been the only family to stay since the last review in 2016 but upon arriving to the house it was nothing like the pictures we loved when we booked. It was quite the opposite and very disappointing. Upon arriving that evening the floor was filthy and turned our feet black so we had to clean it due to our baby walking around. The beds were more or less comfortable and the sheets smelled freshly laundered so that was a plus. The kids loved the train and the easy walk to the beach but I feel it should be disclosed that the train track is literally RIGHT next to the house and that our baby and half the house was woken up every time it laid on the horn at our street when it rolled by a few times in the wee hours of the night. Don't get me wrong, our family loves trains and understands they are an important part of the south but it would have been nice to know that it was "shake the house" close. We stayed busy as there were lots of things to see and do in Biloxi and Gulfport so that made our visit more enjoyable. We would love to return to the Gulfport area again in the future but we will be staying elsewhere.

                                                            Owner's Response:

                                                            Thanks for the comments, they are necessary for our crew to make the proper adjustments. Due to our rental advertising providers (Homeaway, VRBO) we do not always get or ask for posted reviews, good or bad. Most people use my house journal for their comments and recommendations.The providers are preparing a fix to that problem. We have rented this house over 80 times since the last review and have had small issues(cable, locks) but never cleanliness. We and our are are very sorry about the perceived cleanliness, but a call to me, the owner would have remedied the situation immediately, as I live literally blocks away. As stated in the house rules I am at your disposal. As far as location and the train, our 26 miles of beach run East and West just as the "tracks" . If you want to stay anywhere on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, a block from the beach, you will be near the train. The whistle does seem louder as the air is cooler and dryer and sound travels farther. We have noticed this in our own home because we have lived in the same area for 25 years. This home has a train servitude, a two way street, and another house between us and the tracks. As for the pictures, I have 6 vacation rentals and hopefully you were not confused when you booked this house. I am glad you want to visit our great area again and hope you find an affordable place to house your large group.

                                                            Awesome Beach Retreat

                                                            Dee Dee G.

                                                            Excellent location for the beach lover and right next door to Gulfport. As others have stated, the pictures really do not do justice to this lovely home. Comfortable beds, clean kitchen and bathrooms and plenty of beach toys for the kids to enjoy. This place easily accommodates large families or couples. We were minutes from the pier at Ship Island and an easy drive to the nearby casinos. Memories of mornings at the beach with sand between our toes...Can't wait for our next visit. Thank you Vicki for an awesome stay!!!
