About the Property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-9)

The Sea Turtle cottage is located in the heart of exciting Gulfport within walking distance to the beach, parks, casino and Historic Downtown Gulfport's restaurants, shops and bars. The Sea Turtle is on the Mississippi Department of Archives and History covenant register and has been carefully restored to the charms of yesteryear. If you enjoy the ambiance of 'days gone by, then the Sea Turtle Cottage with its original hardwood floors, tongue and groove ceilings and comfortable and eclectic antique furnishings is the place for you!
Sleeping accommodations are great. The parlor bedroom features a four poster bed, antique chifforobe trestle table and flat screen TV. An antique full size burl maple bed with matching armoire and an antique single brass bed in the second bedroom is just perfect for the aunts and nieces. A French Provincial queen bed and trundle day bed in a third bedroom with it's nautical touches is seaside cottage chique.
Dining and entertaining for large groups is artfully easy. The graceful dining room table has two leafs for expanding to easily accommodate parties of ten. The kitchen is equipped with all the tools you'll need to make fabulous meals to wine and dine with friends and family.
Relax in the parlor living room where you and your musical guests and friends can have a fun night playing the spinet piano or guitar. Or gather in the sunroom where you will find a rattan love seat, two upholstered chairs and plenty of pillows and places to flop to watch your favorite shows or DVDs on the flat screen TV.
Two full baths make it easy to get up and get going. One bath includes a bathtub and shower combination that is great for the little guys.
This is a perfect vacation spot for family gatherings, and casino goers alike. The kids will love the splash pad at West Side Park located just a stroll around the block. And Jones Park with its scheduled entertainment events, (Gulfport Music Fest in May and the Fishing Rodeo returns July 4th weekend!), and picnic areas and playgrounds is so close you can walk to it. The newly constructed Gulfport Harbor will delight you with fishing piers and the offerings of fresh fish and shrimp from the boats (summer 2013). Or in season, take a ride on the Ship Island Excursion Boat leaving from the harbor to tour Historic Fort Massachusetts and leave you to do some 'barrier island' beach combing. The Beach Comber Trolley stops at Jones Park, ready to pick you up and carry you up and down the coast for even more shopping and dining fun. Even golfing! And the Island View Casino is a good neighbor living just across the street ready and waiting for whenever you're feeling lucky! Get in the car and you’ll find more fun with outlet malls, discount stores, golf courses and the Gulf Island Water Park.
Come and stay and play at the Sea Turtle Cottage. I just know you will make some great memories.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: My family and I have lived on this street just a few houses up from the Sea Turtle Cottage for 20 years. Our home was lucky enough to survive the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, but many other homes in our community were not so lucky. It is the love for the coast and the desire to help restore and rebuild our community that brought us to purchase the Sea Turtle Cottage. Thanks to the partnership between my mother and me, we were able to complete the restoration of this charming cottage and offer a delightful place for friends and families to vacation and gather in this exciting town. I hope we can share our pleasures of the coast with you, our quests, for many years to come and that you will return time and time again. Owners, Beth Swigris and Martha Sexton
