Great Escape River Lookout

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Oct 2, 2014
House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 12 Sleeps

The River Lookout is conveniently & centrally located on the Mississippi Gulf Coast in a city of Gulfport subdivision, North of I-10, exit 38.

If you are looking for a peaceful, 'getaway from it all' vacation or a vacation where you stay in a secluded area, but are just minutes away from awesome dining, great shopping, casinos, golf courses, Gulf of Mexico Beaches (less than 8 miles away, on a light traffic, 4 lane road, with few lights), and entertainment, this is the place for you and your group. Close to the fun, yet feeling like you've gotten away from it all.

River Lookout is beautifully furnished with all the beds, mattresses, pillows, sofas, dressers, end tables, kitchen's items (plates, glasses, pots, etc.), TVs, etc. All brand new. Attention to detail makes sure this the house you are looking for. From the Room Darkening Curtains, fully equipped kitchen; the house even has a portable Ice maker for your convenience.

First, what's it like on the outside? It's really pretty cool!

On the River, people love their outside spaces. At home, you may stay inside your home, but vacation here and you'll want the views, the quiet atmosphere, river, and all the River Lookout has to offer.

There is a very large elevated deck, just off the front door. It's has a grill, some shaded areas, large umbrella's, lounge chairs, tables and chairs. Enough for the whole group to have an awesome dining & relaxing experience.

Plus a Great view of the Biloxi River!

Under this deck, it's shaded and private. There is a 14' x 8' Hot Tub. It's enormous and could probably seat your entire group at once. Can't you just imagine all of your family & friends, visiting, laughing, drinking a frozen beverage in a giant private hot tub? Stay at the River Lookout and you don't have to just imagine.

The house and grounds are on a unique piece of property. The entire back yard is elevated and supported by a concrete wall. It's a cool barrier to the river, keeping the River Lookout property private while not blocking views of the river.

Enjoy a picnic at the Pavilion area down by the River or even a dip in the River. By April we will have a steel fire pit installed for those who enjoy a good old' fashion campfire.

As great as the outside sounds, it's actually the more rustic side of things about the River Lookout.

The inside, of this elevated house, is all new, comfortable & surprisingly contemporary house. It's open floor plan offers a large kitchen, dinning, & living area. Great for every one to gather in one place.

Inside you will find a great layout, with 4 bedrooms, 2 full baths, 7 Full size to King size beds, 4 Flat screen TVs, large fully equipped kitchen, wireless Internet, & laundry room with washer & dryer.

The Master bedroom has a King Size bed and flat Screen TV. Down a short hall, only accessible from the Master bedroom is a closet and full bathroom. The bathroom has a double vanity, shower & separate tub area. This Bedroom, is to the East side of the house, with some awesome room darkening curtains; for those who enjoy sleeping in on their vacation.

Towards the west side of the house, is a hallway, off of which you will find the laundry room, another full bath, a 2nd bedroom with a King size bed, a 3rd bedroom with a queen size bed, and a 4th bedroom with two, Full over Full size bunk beds. This one bunk room, can sleep up to 6 (2 in each of the bottom bunks & 1 in each of the top). These bunk beds are NOT the flimsy bunk beds you may imagine, but extremely sturdy, lots of clearance between bottom and top bunk beds. If you are with a Man's Golfer Group, you need not be concerned if these beds are adequate. They are very comfortable, sturdy, and designed to sleep a Large Man, even on the top bunk.

The interior is coordinated, newly decorated, & well laid out. There are no futons, beds built into closets, bedrooms over stuffed with multiple beds, that you have to almost climb over to get out of the room. The windows have mini-blinds & room darkening curtains. The count of 12 in 7 beds, allows for 5 couples, sleeping in 2 full beds, 1 queen bed, and 2 king beds. The 2 full bunks (in one large room) also have a full size bed above them for 1 additional person in each of the top beds. While we try to limit the top count to 12 people, depending on your groups desired sleeping arrangements, there are also 2 sofas in the living room, which are okay for people to sleep on, although we don't provide additional bedding for that.

Please take a moment and read the house reviews. Its new to the market, so there are only a few reviews, but I believe you will find them helpful in accessing if this is the perfect place for your next vacation or Golfer's Getaway.

Exactly what we were looking for

  • 5 of 5
When we planned our family vacation we had some very specific needs in mind. We wanted someplace where we could relax, swim, and kayak without the need to drive somewhere every day. We wanted enough bedrooms so everyone could have their own private space. And we wanted easy access to Gulfport, the beach, and New Orleans so we could fill our week-long stay with fun activities.
River Lookout met our needs and then some. The house was comfortable, well supplied, and beautifully maintained. The beach area and dock were perfect for us. We launched our kayaks directly from the beach and had very enjoyable paddles both upstream and downstream. The dock area was especially nice - the rope swing provided endless entertainment for the young and the not so young. Finally, the hot tub was a great spot for relaxation and conversation even for the warm June evenings. River Lookout served as a convenient home base for excursions to New Orleans, Beauvior, the gator ranch, and some excellent seafood restaurants.
Patricia and Grady were very prompt and helpful for all our requests both when arranging our visit and during our stay. We'd love to return!

A true getaway !

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the river lookout for 5 nights and could not have been more pleased . The house was so clean and comfortable . We have a large family and the house was big enough for us all to have privacy and space . Patricia and Grady are wonderful people to rent from . They were quick to respond to questions and always available. The hot tub was a dream ! Huge! The beds were so comfortable and the kitchen had everything you could possibly need to cook . We loved how private the area was. The property and river were so nice . If your looking for a beautiful , well maintained , clean , private property for your family this is the place . We did not want the high rise typical condo and crowds . We enjoyed having bbqs on the patio and walking down to the river shore to relax . Our kids loved it. The beach is about a 10 minute drive along with a grocery store and about anything else . Patricia and Grady were very kind honest. it's obvious they put a lot of care into their home . Can't wait to go back next year

Wonderful rental home

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed at this home in March 2014. From the time I contacted the owner, Patricia to arrival everything went smoothly. Patricia always responded to emails and phone calls promptly. Once we arrived we found the house very clean and ready to move in for the week. This home was perfect for the 6 of us which included 2 children. Everyone had room to move and privacy, we could do our laundry, cook a meal in the well equipped kitchen and we loved being on the river. We would definitely rent from Patricia again! Thanks for the memories!

Girls golf getaway

  • 5 of 5
A great place to stay. Clean and nicely furnished for our group of 8 ladies. Cooked breakfast in the a.m. And then headed for the great golf courses in the area. A stop at the many casinos and supper at a multitude of great restaurants makes for a great day. A couple card games at the nice big dining room table and then off to the comfy beds. A great way to spend a vacation in the warm weather of the Gulf Coast.
