About Harriet Battiste and Debra Campo

The property is owned by two lovely ladies from New Orleans, Louisiana and Central Florida. Since we currently reside in New Orleans, only 1 hour away, we purchased this property for a weekend getaway for our family and friends. We both love cooking, biking, walking, and of course, the beach which is within walking distance from the property. Our goal was to perserve the histoical attributes of the property while bringing in some upgrades that complement this beatiful treasure.

Why Harriet Battiste and Debra Campo chose Gulfport

This property is located in a Historic Gulport and walking distance to the beach! It is within a few miles of casinos, resturants, medical center, and food markets. The property is also located within driving distance of the Gulf Port Harbor, Ship Island Excursion, West Side Park Splash Pad , Fishing Piers, and recreational center, and so much more. If you are up for a short drive, the one hour drive to New Olreans is a easy straight shot on interstate 10 where you can enjoy all of the New Orleans events or festivities throughout the year and drive back to the cottage the same day.

What makes this bungalow unique

The beautiful live oak trees, magnolia trees, camelia trees, and azalia's are a beatuful site to see. The picnic area under the live oak trees are truly breathtaking. The restoration of the 1900 cottage with its orignal hard wood floors, new wood burning fireplace, large front porch with swing, coupled with a new state of the art kitchen for cooking up a great vacation meal and other great amenities is an awesome setting for a family vacation of fun and relaxation.

Historic Gulfport is the perfect vacation spot for family and friends. There's so many things to do within a short distance. The sandy white beaches are simply beautiful and if you like Casino's, a trolly car will bring you to many Casino locations along the Mississippi coast. We love our beach cottage and hope you will too.

We brought our three young daughters here to wait out Hurricane Irma. We loved it! The girls loved the yard and the front porch swings and the sun porch where we ate our breakfast every morning. The weather was beautiful! Like fall in the mornings - the closest we will get, having recently moved south from New York. Debbie was so helpful, accommodating and just so sweet - making a stressful situation so much better! Thank you, Debbie!

We will be returning!!

What a warm and wonderful place to stay! The house has everything you need plus a huge yard for kids and dogs and is so well-renovated! The accommodations were great and just a couple of blocks to the beach so you can walk or drive.

We cannot wait to go back!

One more day.....

  • 5 of 5

My 16yr old daughter had a college exposure softball camp in Gulfport,MS. We usually stay at hotels for these kind of events. We wanted a little more since we've never visited the beaches of Mississippi. We arrived a day earlier than we needed to be there to do some off Shore fishing but of course it rained all day so we had to cancel that trip. The weather didn't keep us indoors. There's so much to see and the array of restaurants the beach offers are many! The cottage is so peaceful and a lot of space. It was my husband, my 16yr old daughter, my 11yr old daughter, my 5 yr old newphew and myself. The beds were so comfortable, I slept all night which is unusual. I didn't get to use the beautiful kitchen for any cooking but I know it would have been a delight. I used the back sunroom to do some work, I think that was my favorite part of the house. I normally set up in the dining room to do work away from the office and it's somewhat stressful. Well the sunroom was perfect with all the natural daylight and the beautiful greenery in the backyard. We did stay one extra day than our original requested reservation. We visited Biloxi where we did some shoppings and enjoyed the water sports. I definitely recommend this house if you are staying in or near Gulfport.

Cute older home with all the amenities.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cute home. The location was close to the beach and had beautiful old live oak trees...which we love. There was a great back deck on the property and a grill for our use. We had a problem with the dishwasher not working. The owners were very gracious about the problem...this in no way hindered our great stay. We loved it!
