About Nancy Mustaikis
We are from Michigan and have been coming to the Mississippi Gulf Coast for Vacations for over 30 years. We consider this area one of the best kept secrets in the United States. The weather in the winter is very much like our Michigan summers. Our orginal home in Gulfport we bought in 1999 and after Hurricane Katrina we purchased this home to renovate and live in while working on our original home. We kept this cottage for our friends and family to stay in when they came to visit during the winter months. The area is very quiet as very few houses have been rebuilt since Katrina. If you are traveling with pets, children or just want to relax the area is wonderful.
Nancy Mustaikis purchased this House in 2006
Why Nancy Mustaikis chose Gulfport
We grew up along the shores of Lake Michigan and wanted to be near the water. The Mississippi Gulf Coast has 25 miles of sandy beaches. The area feels like a small town but has all the amenities of the city within 15 miles. I love to grow flowers and my husband likes to drag race and we can do both all winter in Gulfport. Most important is there is no snow to shovel in the Winter.
What makes this House unique
We are concert lovers and car show people and there are plenty of both here every weekend. If we want to go to New Orleans for the big Mardi Gras Parades or catch a cruise ship for a week we are only 80 miles away.

Warm and inviting home!!! Love the owners!!
Nancy is a very sweet and giving person we will return... Stayed to visit daughter and grandchildren it fit all 5 of us very comfortable. Hope to be able to go back soon. Had a wonderful Christmas with decorations and all .
First Ocean Visit
This home was exactly what we were looking for! The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because when we arrived the hot tub was out of order, and we were not informed prior. Nancy was great though and had it up and running by the last night of our stay. Within walking distance of the ocean, and the perfect driving distance for all we wanted to see and do while we were there. This was a great place to create memories and the house had literally everything we needed to spend the week! Thanks Nancy for such a great vacation spot. We hope to be back soon!!
Best Vacation stay ever!!
We loved our stay!! So much like home and everything we needed!! We loved being so close to the beach and sitting on the deck and feeling the breeze. We hope to visit again next year! Thank you so much !!
We had a wonderful time. The cottage was perfect.
This property was everything we were expecting for our first family vacation. Amazing property!!
FIRST FAMILY VACATION TOGETHER.
Our family would like to thank Ms Nancy and her husband for the wonderful experience of a vacation at a home away from home. This property was very clean convenient and comfortable. The privacy was excellent. She even left a huge Easter basket to accommodate all of my kids and eggs and dye for our kids. The house was decorated with Easter decor as well. There was beach toys for the kids. We are breakfast on the back patio looking at the beautiful beach. We had the best time ever. If it wasn't for having to work we would have stayed even longer. P.S Miss Nancy and Steve the kids said thank you so much for making their first vacation experience wonderful and for the candy and eggs. I would recommend this vacation home to anybody we will be back soon
We're glad you had such a great time. Your children were so well behaved and I appreciate you treating our cottage as if it were your own. We will welcome your return to stay with us again.
just like home
Enjoyed my stay .I didn't want to leave.It was very relaxing and lots of things to do,just wish I had more time. The bed and was really nice for sleeping and the house had everything that was needed. The only down side was no cable tv but then again I wasn't there long enough to really watch it. Someday I hope to go back there again,maybe in the wintertime.So much better than staying in a hotel
