We took a family trip to Gulfport: 8 adults and 2 children. The Lily House was perfect in every way. It’s a beautiful house that has everything you need. And the owner was great. There is simply nothing that would have made our stay any better. The owner can give you contact information for Rebecca who does catering – her food was amazing. We loved the chicken salad, chicken pot pie, blueberry French toast with homemade blueberry syrup but above all this was her shrimp gumbo. I would recommend having her cater at least one meal for you. You will not be disappointed. And beyond the house and the amenities offered, Gulfport was a perfect family vacation spot. We walked to the beach from the house. We went to Jones Park that had a great splash pad for the kids. We enjoyed the Lynn Meadows Discover Center; this was one of the best interactive children’s museums that I have ever been too. And we ate at some great restaurants that were all within 5 minutes of the Lily House. I highly recommend taking the ferry to Ship Island you will be glad you did. The beach was great and we saw dolphins on the way. We also took the July 4th coastline cruise out of Gulfport to watch the fireworks. Our entire vacation was exceptional!

Great Location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Lily House when we were in town for our sons baseball World Series. The location was perfect and David was very accommodating. Lots of refrigerator space to cook meals and the industrial stovetop was a plus. Our kids were able to fish on the beach in the mornings and evenings. We would definitely recommend The Lily House to anyone looking in the Gulfport area.

Family vacation at the Lily House in Gulfport

  • 5 of 5

We spent last week at the Lily House and could not have had a better experience. The owner, David, was very accommodating and knowledgable of the area. There were seven of us ranging in age from 16-65 and we were extremely comfortable. We walked the short walk to the beach each evening, spent one afternoon at the beach at Ship Island, drove the short drive to shop at Ocean Springs and also visited the Jefferson Davis house and went parasailing in Biloxi. Gulfport is centrally located and so it is an easy drive to various tourist locations. We wanted much-needed family time together and the Lily House with its wrap-around porches and clean, comfortable living areas was the perfect location for us to all relax together.

The property was really nice and the owner was very friendly. That said there is no point is going here as the beaches were terrible, there was a transient digging cans out of the garbage by our truck when we were trying g to leave, and the ocean smells horrible, not to mention after we got back from the water we learned it wasn't even safe to go in. This was a terrible experience for my family. We will never go back to the city of Gulfport. The house was beautiful though.

Owner's Response: It is very unfortunate that you had an extremely untypical experience, as all of my previous guests to Gulfport have hoped to extend their stay, or go ahead and book a return visit. Gulfport, and the Gulf Coast at large, has recovered from the effects of Hurricane Katrina with a focus as a family destination, as noted in recent articles by USA Today, Cosmopolitan, Vogue, Money and NY Post. Hopefully you will return to our wonderful City again one day and share in Nature’s beauty that we are blessed to experience everyday. Our brand new Mississippi Aquarium will be completed by the Spring of 2020, you and your family are welcome to be my guests when it opens. I’m sure your precious girls will love it.

Beautiful house Beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

Lily House was perfect for our spring break vacation! We had 5 adults and 3 children. The house met the needs of all! The gourmet kitchen was well stocked with cooking equipment and utensils. The floor plan allowed us to open the doors and extend the living area to the wrap around porch. Was a wonderful place to enjoy our coffee in the mornings and a glass of wine at sunset while looking at the beautiful water views!! The bedrooms were very comfortable, especially the master with the en suite bathroom. The brand new cottage addition behind the main house is adorable and perfect for a small group or if more bedrooms are needed. It has a full kitchen as well. Our kids could not get enough hammock time and thoroughly enjoy the swing in the front yard. David, the owner, could not have been more accommodating. Not only did he help us with anything we needed but he also gave us tips on restaurants, grocery stores, and the best store to buy a good bottle of wine. The best owner we’ve ever encountered! We will definitely be back! Highly recommended!!!
