About Nancy Scipione

Scott & Lynn:

Scott is native to south Louisiana and I grew up in north Mississippi. My grandparents bought this house in 1939 and raised their family here. I grew up spending Spring Breaks and Summer vacations here with my grandparents and have many fond memories of my time here.

Nancy Scipione purchased this house in 1939

Why Nancy Scipione chose Mississippi

Gulfport is a very special place and is doing a great job of bouncing back from the damage of Hurricane Katrina. We enjoy walking along the seawall to Jones park and up and down Second Street (which is lined with beautiful, historical homes), sitting on the front porch enjoying the Gulf view and the nice breezes, and dining out at the fabulous local restaurants - some of which are only minutes away from the house. The beach and a nice neighborhood park are both easy walks from the house.

What makes this house unique

Our Gulfport home was completely renovated and updated thanks to Hurricane Katrina. The kitchen was enlarged and is nice and roomy with plenty of cabinet space and new appliances. The second full bath and a large laundry room were also added. In the yard are several fruit trees and pecan trees.

We hope that you will visit our home and create your own special memories here!

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic location and a beautiful house! We were a large family traveling together, and there was plenty of room for everyone! The fenced in back yard was great for our dog, and the remodeled kitchen was awesome for cooking meals for the whole family! Anything we needed was taken care of very quickly. We would highly recommend this location and this house!

Really Nice Rental

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I + our two dogs really enjoyed our recent visit to Gulfport. We checked in after hours and the directions emailed by the manager were great--everything pertaining to check in and out was perfect. This house is very nice, clean, comfortable with lots of room. It was decorated really nice and an easy walk to the beach. The backyard was fenced and was a nice size. We enjoyed sitting on the porch in the rocking chairs sipping wine and watching the activities in the Gulf. We enjoyed great sea food at The Shrimp Basket--wonderful local shrimp and oysters. I have rented many times through VRBO and this was one of the best--Thank you!.

Best ever!

  • 5 of 5

Easy check in and hassle free on our Sunday arrival. House is perfect! Clean from top to bottom with everything you need. I normally do not recommendations lightly but I highly recommend this place for your vacation stay in Gulfport. Just a short walk to the beach and an awesome porch with ocean breeze that is perfect for morning coffee. My kids will remember this place for the rest of their lives. Thanks for the best vacation experience EVER!

Several family members rented homes for my daughters wedding and it was a great home for my family!

  • 5 of 5

The home is very well maintained. We had a lot of events for the wedding so didn't get to enjoy the beautiful backyard and grill. However, I really enjoyed sitting on the front porch for morning coffee and being able to see the beach and water. There is a great breese. Close proximity to The Chimneys Restaurant, The Marriott, Island View Casino and Steamers Restaurant (great royal reds, and stuffed crab), and of course the beach a block away. Since several other family members rented houses close by it was wonderful to walk between them. Downtown area is wonderful as well with shops and restaurants. Great restaurants: Murky Waters has the best wings, Pirate's Cove, and Ben's Deli, and wonderful pizza at Tony's Brick Oven Pizzeria. Would highly recommend this house. The parlor used for a 3rd bedroom has a small privacy screen which worked but french doors would have given that room better privacy.

We semi-planned a last minute weekend getaway, and this house was absolutely perfect for two couples. The house is immaculate and feels brand new throughout. We loved sitting on the front porch looking at the Gulf while drinking coffee, and we were convenient to all things Gulfport and Biloxi. Every detail was completely as represented, and we would not hesitate to stay here again when in this area.
