Charming Historic Beach Cottage just steps away from beautiful white sand beach.


Property Details

Updated: Oct 11, 2016
Centrally located 2 story, 4 BR, 2 Bath historic cottage near the beach.

This Beach Cottage built in the early 1900's approximately a block from the beach. The cottage sits on two large lots in a tropical setting of palms, large banana trees, camellia's, and oleanders. You will relax outdoors on the front porch or in the garden patio area complete with grill and fire-pit. Sorry, not wheelchair accessible.

The two story property offers a true cottage feel with original hardwood floors and eleven foot ceilings upstairs. Here you find a cottage style kitchen, one bath, two bedrooms and a sitting room. The upstairs is furnished with one queen bed, one double bed and a queen sofa sleeper.

The downstairs area has a beach inspired decor that will brighten your day. There you will find two bedrooms providing a queen bed and two twin beds. Additionally you will find a day bed in the family room. Downstairs includes one bath and a large laundry room.

The property is located one mile west of the Island View Casino and close to Historic downtown Gulfport with some of the best seafood restaurants the coast has to offer. Also nearby you will find Gulfport harbor which includes a free children's splash park and hosts many festivals, boat shows, Ship Island excursions, and fishing charters.

Just steps away you will find the kid-friendly Westside park which includes a splash pad and the westside fishing pier. You will enjoy long walks on the white sandy beaches, watch the sunrise across the barrier islands. All the while experiencing what the Mississippi beach life has to offer.

For the Sportman, guided fishing trips can be arranged as well. The owner is an avid fisherman and local fishing guide. All tackle, bait, fish cleaning, and valuable information included. Check him out at

About the Owner

This property has been in my family for many years. In the past we have shared this cottage with friends and family as a weekend getaway. We now offer our home as a vacation rental. Our family has always enjoyed the Coastal life. Fishing is one of our favorite things to do and we still enjoy it today.

Very nice place to stay at.

  • 5 of 5

The house was a super cozy home with plenty of room. The back yard was very nice. The house is well stocked with everything that you will need. It is a nice neighborhood and close to the beach. The only thing that we would recommend is putting a shower in the upstairs bathroom. Only have one shower makes it a little hard with a bigger group of guest.

Great experience!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family. At one point we had 7 of us at the house, and there was plenty of room and beds for everyone. Close enough to the beach that we could easily walk. Very quiet neighborhood with little traffic. The house was beautifully decorated with everything we needed. Even though there was only one TV, we managed! We would definitely want to stay here again. Thanks for sharing your home with us. My guys want to come back later and fish with you so we will be in contact.

Great long weekend

  • 5 of 5

This home is incredible, its within a short walk to the beach, close to everything. If you're looking for a beach feel you cant beat this property. Everything was perfect, the house is decorated as my wife kept saying "it's so cute". I have a feeling we will be spending $ to buy some of the decorations for our home. Has everything you need. We will definitely be staying here again! Probably the only thing would be the shower which if you're tall you will need to duck down to use it.

A warm welcome!

  • 5 of 5

What a most delightful location. As soon as you walked in the door you immediately felt welcomed. The cleanliness, attention to detail and "little extras" let you know you are welcomed! Every inch of this property is maintained and cared for, thank you. Sittin' on the front porch talking with family and friends while feeling the breeze from the Gulf was wonderful! We are looking forward to our next stay at "The Castaway"! M. S. Wesley, New Orleans ,Louisiana

From the Owner

The beach lifestyle is so accessible here. Everything is within walking distance or bike riding distance. No cars necessary to enjoy the sandy beaches or fishing piers. It is centrally located to the unique shops in Bay Saint Louis and Ocean Springs. There are so many festivals and events to experience; such as the fishing rodeo's. There is nothing like seeing the gamefish brought in daily during the Mississippi Deep Sea Fishing Rodeo, held annually on the Forth of July weekend. This event is held right down the street at the Gulfport Harbor/Jones Park.
