About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps 8

You will know you are on vacation from the moment you walk through the door. Every room is a reflection of life on the coast. Decorated with beach decor and tranquil colors, you will have no problem relaxing. The furniture was custom ordered to ensure a look you won't find anywhere else. With an open floor plan, friends and family can visit with each other while sitting in the kitchen or reclining on the sofa. There is a great view of the Mississippi Sound from the living room. Soft cream hardwood floors flow throughout the house.

Each bedroom has its own unique style. The master bedroom has a queen size bed and 26'' wall mounted flat panel TV. Attached bathroom with antique claw foot tub and a walk-in marble shower. The second bedroom has a tall king size bed, and 32'' wall mounted flat panel TV. The third bedroom has two full size beds & 32' wall mounted Netflix ready tv, & french doors leading out to the deck and backyard.

All three bedrooms have room darkening curtains for the times you want a mid-day nap after an early round of golf, a fishing adventure, or maybe all night gambling. When you are hanging out in the living room enjoy the huge 60'' Netflix Ready TV in a custom built entertainment center. We provide wireless high speed internet so don't forget your laptop.

The house is located on a quiet historical street one block north of US90 (Beach Blvd). Most of the effects of Katrina have been cleared away but there are still empty lots that stand as a memorial to the devastation that coastal residents endured. If you enjoy walks, this is the street for you. We are one block from gorgeous white sandy beaches and a park is within walking distance with tennis courts and a playground.


Spend time outdoors in our landscaped yard, fully enclosed with a privacy fence. Cook on the natural gas grill while kids play on 'hopscotch' walkway. An outdoor table and chairs provides plenty of room for dining and a covered deck keeps you out of the sun while waiting on your meal.

The Ship Island Excursion docks just two miles from the house. In just 5 minutes you are at the Island View Casino in Gulfport or in 15 minutes you can be at one of the many casinos in Biloxi. Take a day trip to New Orleans 60 miles away.

The golf courses are too many to name. We invite you to stay at the Gulf Breeze Cottage and enjoy the year round fun the gulf coast has to offer! Please note the maximum occupancy of 9 at the Gulf Breeze Cottage and minimum age of renter 28.

If traveling in large groups and looking for multiple houses please check out our other properties walking distance from the Cottage.

If you are not familiar with Gulfport there are a couple things we like our prospective guests to know. There are train tracks that run approximately two blocks north of the beaches. You will be able to hear trains run from most anywhere you stay that you have access to the beaches. We personally love the beaches and the water there. Some people though are disappointed since they expect large waves and clear water. This is the Mississippi Sound and the water has a murky quality to it. It is very shallow and you can walk out in it without it getting very deep for quite a ways. We find the beaches peaceful by our house and seldom crowded. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and everyone has their own opinion of the perfect beach.

WE WANT OUR GUESTS TO BE AWARE THAT WE DO NOT ACCEPT WIRE TRANSFERS OR BANK TRANSFERS. WE WILL NEVER ASK YOU FOR ONE. We will initiate any payment request thru secure sites that offer protection for you. If you wish to confirm that any email that comes from us is legitimate, please call us.

About Donna Rowland

My husband and I enjoy this area so much we bought a second home here. We lead busy lives but this is our chance to catch our breath and just enjoy life a little because it sure is going by fast.

Donna Rowland purchased this house in 2009

Why Donna Rowland chose Gulfport

We looked at several locations along the coast but kept coming back to Gulfport. The beach is just a block away and the house is close to everything else we enjoy doing on vacation.

What makes this house unique

We have three vacation homes all within one block of each other. This can come in handy for groups and extended families.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Donna,

Your house is amazing! We loved it and took care of it like it was our own. I will pray that every tenant that you get will take special care of your home because all of the work and love that you have put into it is very evident. We loved the view and the peaceful backyard. We drove by the treehouse cottage and wished we had seen the inside. My mom especially loved her room with the big King bed and I loved mine with the soaker tub! I just can't say enough about how beautiful your house is. We noticed every detail, from the hand painted tiles on the backsplash and the corian counters, to the bosch appliances. Top of the line throughout--my mom really appreciated the quality of the linens! Thank you for letting us enjoy your wonderful vacation home! I can't wait to bring my husband there to see it!

Gulf Breeze Cottage is perfect

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from my stay at the gulf breeze cottage. My family and I stayed for 3 days to visit with my stepson who is deploying for iraq on the 10 th. Most motels and hotels were going from 80$ to 120$ a nite and you at best get 600 square feet and a microwave. The gulf breeze cottage gave us plenty of space to visit and the decor is beautifull. We were able to fix up all his favorite home cooked meals in the well furnished kitchen.I have stayed in timeshares before and this place beats them all. It seems like everything is brand new. Just wanted you to know that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to staying again.

Great home!

  • 5 of 5

The house is exactly as described. Great location and a good layout for us (two families meeting up, four adults, two 4 year olds, two 2 year olds). It is clean and has everything you need to stay for a while. Easy access to beach, downtown, and playground (we walked everywhere). The instructions on the house are numerous and precise. If you aren’t an attention to detail person, this may not be the house for you.

Perfect, every time!

  • 5 of 5

My mom and I have stayed in Donna's lovely home in December now for three years in a row! We absolutely love it! A truly beautiful and cozy home that has everything you could possibly need. Every December Donna has up really lovely Christmas decorations and the house really feels like a nice home away from home! We always walk the neighborhood and enjoy being close to the water and the airport.
