About the Property

3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 5

Come enjoy not only a vacation but a way of life on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. The Gulf Palms Cottage is located on a quiet and safe street in Long Beach just three blocks from the beach and harbor. With huge Live Oaks, the balmy sea breezes and plenty of outdoor space the cottage is situated in the center of everything the Coast has to offer. Our comfortable 3 bedroom, 1 ½ bath cottage is just moments from great restaurants such as Steve’s Marina, Bulls, Harbor View Café and Darwell’s. The exciting night life of Biloxi with its casinos and entertainment is only a short drive down the beach. For the “Salt Life” there is great pier fishing, Charter boats, beach volleyball, beach fire pits and the longest beach front on the Coast are just blocks away. With the free splash pad, City Park that features outdoor movies and music and the developing city center two blocks from the cottage there is something for everyone to enjoy.

Grocery stores and Walmart are a few minutes’ drive with Edgewater Mall , Premium Outlet Mall, Crossroads Mall and numerous boutiques all less than 20 minutes from the cottage. For those that desire more adventure there are several outstanding day trips within an hour from the cottage………New Orleans, Mobile, Ship Island and scores of historical and interesting destinations around the area.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Harold And Claire Claire is French-Canadian who grew up in Quebec. Harold grew up in Long Beach but had not resided in Long Beach for 50 years, retired from 35 year career in Public Safety from Utah. Purchased this cottage as a family vacation home for our six adult children and seven grand children to experience and enjoy the Mississippi Gulf Coast....they all now have a deep connection to the beauty and people of our beloved community.

Why the Owner Chose Long Beach, MS, USA:
This could be classified as a “love story” by some or simply “luck of life” by others. In 2010 I, Harold, returned to the Mississippi Gulf Coast for a class reunion, where I hadn’t lived for over forty years. During that visit Claire feel in love with the beauty and peacefulness of the area and the people that call it home. We had been looking for a location to purchase a winter/retirement home for several years. After we returned from our trip life went on and we continued looking for property in Florida and other parts of the South never thinking we would return to the Mississippi Gulf Coast Then in 2013 events in life again brought us in contact with friends along the Coast. Later that year I was able to purchase a building lot in Long Beach with thoughts that we might build a small home there some day. In 2014 we again traveled to the area for Mardis Gras and took in a number of the parades along the coast. When checking the property I had purchased, Claire noticed that the older cottage on the property next door was for sale. The cottage had not been maintained for several years and was in need of much attention. Claire decided to purchase the cottage and the work was on to set it up for a family retreat. After several months of work and help from many friends in the area Claire has brought the cottage alive. This will now be our families’ (kids and grandkids) retreat when time allows. We hope you enjoy the cottage, Long Beach, the area, the beach life, the great seafood and of course the people of the area as much as we do and will. Please feel at home at our cottage and enjoy the beauty of the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Cottage is in the heart of everything the coast has to offer. Walking distance to beach, restrurants, harbor, splash pad, town green (where all events take place), the quaint downtown but yet in one of the most sought after peaceful, relaxing and safe areas along the entire Gulf Coast. Cottage is situated on huge private lot with large Live Oaks, space to play and relax in establish beach neighborhood right on destinated bike route for biking. With the screened in porch is one of the few "old style" cottage still along the coast.
