About the property

2 Queen Bedrooms 1 Bath Walking Distance To The Beach

A five star level beach house with total updated accommodations including internet, direct tv, state of the art security system, fully equipped kitchen and very unique extras that you are looking for to make your vacation full of memories instead of a location that your family Just went to. Located just a block and a half walking distance to the beach, which by the way can be seen from the front porch swing is our beach home we call twin oaks. You will able to view panoramic sunsets during you stay courtesy of a custom built walk way extending for miles which borders the gulf for those wanting to take the short stroll or a long walk. Just a reminder bring some bread for the kids to feed the many various types of native birds that are always present. Numerous restaurants are throughout the area and our favorite is gulf coast steamers which serves excellent seafood {any of the shrimp dishes are fantastic especially the red shrimp and their special bread is heavenly}. Or if you prefer your own cooking, all cooking utensils food processors, barbecue grill, blender, baking pans, coffee maker including a fresh bean grinder are on site for your use. Just step out the back door to find a professionally designed private deck is accessible thru the dining area which leads to a beautiful fenced in back yard where you will find one the 2 largest majestic live oak trees in the area with its massive limbs providing shade for your families cookout. Additionally for that special quite time check out meditation steps located next to the other {sister live oak as we refer to her} and you will find that perfect spot to enjoy that afternoon glass of wine or cup of coffee and admire one natures greatest gifts. Don’t be surprised if you are visited by a couple of very friendly little squirrels

For the adults in your party Vegas style casino gaming is walking distance from the beach house along with numerous night time locations from the vibrant downtown Gulfport nightlife. Also in the immediate area you will find jones park which provides activities for the kids free beach access and excellent fishing from the pier itself which has a bait shop on site {bring sunscreen for this excursion}.

Please note, our home is non-smoking but can smoke on the deck or front porch and we are unable to accommodate pets.

Disappointed!

  • 1 of 5

Arrived late after a long drive to a very dirty house. The owner lives 1 1/2 hr drive away and has left it in the hands of the cleaner. Well the cleaner hasn't been doing their job for some time. Not well suited for a 2 month stay.

Fabulous house

  • 5 of 5

This house was simply gorgeous. It was perfect for my son & me for 4 days. It had everything we needed plus some additional extras. Well stocked kitchen! It is conveniently located to most everything you could want.

Security system was definitely a big bonus & helped us feel very safe.

You can see the ocean from the front porch. Beach is a little further than 1.5 blocks, but not a long walk unless you have little ones with you. Beware of the train that comes through frequently. It is about 4-5 blocks away, but is loud when blowing the horn.

Overall, great place & would definitely stay again.

HOME AWAY FROM HOME!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful updated home. Quaint cottage feel. My sisters and I were very impressed on how comfortable and relaxing this vacation home was. It was well stocked with little odds and ends you might forget to bring and we never ran out of towels and it was FIVE WOMEN! I would highly recommend! We didn't want to leave!

great property - great location and it all made for a wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

There was not one thing in the listing that did not prove to be true. The house provides clean, spacious rooms, and all the amenities you could want. Location is great - close and convenient to so many things, yet off the busy streets. This is definitely a great find and we look forward to our next stay.

Cozy beach house stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at the Twin Oaks Beach House, located on a quiet street just two blocks from the white sands of Gulfport beaches, near the marina, too. Conveniently located less than 1 1/2 hours drive to New Orleans, this place was perfectly located for everything we wanted to do and see. Beds were comfy and the newly remodeled interior had all the stocked utensils and accomodations that we needed. We would definitely stay here again. My teenage girls loved it!

The weather didn't allow for us to enjoy the back deck, but maybe next time! Thank you, Barbara for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home!

Very nice house, location and neighbors.

  • 5 of 5

We recently had a short vacation to visit my son in Air Force Tech School at Keesler and rented this house. Barbara is great to deal with, no issues at all and very accommodating on check in/check out times. The property is just as described. The back porch is great, the two large Pin Oak Trees over the deck are amazing. This rental was a great experience and I would not hesitate to rent this property again in the future.
