About this listing

The space

Each house has been beautifully renovated with its own unique feature. The Property encompasses half of a city block and is a wonderful place to relax or enjoy all the fun and quirkiness of Gulfport!

The Long House was completely renovated in 2013 and is a spacious 900 square foot bungalow. There are two bedrooms on opposite ends of the house. The kitchen is well equipped with lots of counter space to cook and entertain. The house has a large laundry room with washer and dryer, beautiful new walk in shower, flat screen TV with cable, bicycles for roaming around and kayaks for exploring the beach and bayous!

This property is exactly as advertised. clean and stocked with all the essentials. The commuinication was great and Paula checked-in during our stay to make sure everything was okay. Gulfport is a dog friendly place where your pet is welcome and the fresh market is a must see.

This place is perfect!! Our family of four had a perfect stay! We really enjoyed the bikes( comfortable seats!) there are two parks very close! It is a short walk to many VERY good restaurants, the beach park, vollyball courts, two playgrounds, and eclectic shops! We really enjoyed driving to pass-a-grille beach and fort DeSoto (the north beach there is great). We enjoyed the laid back feel and friendly people of Gulfport! We highly reccomend this spot!

The Long House is a very comfortable and well equipped little house perfectly located a half block from Beach Blvd in Downtown Gulfport. It has everything you need including a couple of cruiser bikes that we used every day. Paula was a great host and very responsive if we needed anything. We loved it and hope to go again if we can!
