About Lisa McVicker

We celebrated one year with our property in vacation rental in March 2015, and we are excited to offer our our little slice of paradise to travelers. While our photo shows my husband, myself and my son, I, Lisa, am the one handling the details of your visit. My background is in film & TV and I work as a consultant, coach and producer to assist people in amplifying their prosperity by using media on the web. My husband is a metal artist (you can see his public art pieces in Gulfport - the Pelicans at Gulfport Beach behind the Casino and the Arch at the Art Village).

I am a 5 Rhythms dancer and I also enjoy practicing yoga at Yoga Moves in St. Petersburg.

Lisa McVicker purchased this house in 1999

Why Lisa McVicker chose Gulfport

I had been in the house several years before I discovered it was on the market in 1999 - I put in a full price offer without ever even looking at it again! I have felt such a deep sense of peace, fun and possibility on this property. On the edge of the quaint town of Gulfport, it truly is paradise! Yes, it's quirky and eclectic, and it is fabulous and comfortable, and, well, paradise...

What makes this house unique

Uh, the secluded sanctuary of a private beach steps from fantastic restaurants, live music, festivals and fun!

Awesome Backyard!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment located in the back of the house was exactly as described. The backyard stole the show though. It is actually quite large and backs up to a private beach with fences on both sides of property for even more privacy. You can watch wildlife easily and also gaze out into the bay to enjoy the beautiful water. Inside, the kitchen had most everything you need. Half bath is separate from the shower/tub. Only drawback for me was getting in and out of the tub, as I have short legs. Living room area has a dining table and chairs. The whole apartment is an open floor plan. Several ceiling fans and a window A/C unit keep the rental cool. We did not spend much time indoors as our purpose was to enjoy the quaint city of Gulfport and its neat shops and restaurants. So many options were within walking distance from this rental making it very desirable for us.

Gulfport house

  • 3 of 5

Nice apartment! But the beach isn't really that great, water is gross from being on the edge of the bay but it's a nice view! Definitely wouldn't pay that much for a "beachfront".

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 1 week in August 2017 and thought the apartment was very quaint and functional. the location is so close to bars and restaurants. Great parking, quiet and even has bbq and seating area for us to use if we wished. Unfortunately we were unable to stay longer but we definitely will be back to stay.
