About Harriet Battiste and Debra Campo

The property is owned by two lovely ladies from New Orleans, Louisiana and Central Florida. Since we currently reside in New Orleans, only 1 hour away, we purchased this property for a weekend getaway for our family and friends. We both love cooking, biking, walking, and of course, the beach which is within walking distance from the property. Our goal was to perserve the histoical attributes of the property while bringing in some upgrades that complement this beatiful treasure.

Why Harriet Battiste and Debra Campo chose Gulfport

This property is located in a Historic Gulport and walking distance to the beach! It is within a few miles of casinos, resturants, medical center, and food markets. The property is also located within driving distance of the Gulf Port Harbor, Ship Island Excursion, West Side Park Splash Pad , Fishing Piers, and recreational center, and so much more. If you are up for a short drive, the one hour drive to New Olreans is a easy straight shot on interstate 10 where you can enjoy all of the New Orleans events or festivities throughout the year and drive back to the cottage the same day.

What makes this bungalow unique

The beautiful live oak trees, magnolia trees, camelia trees, and azalia's are a beatuful site to see. The picnic area under the live oak trees are truly breathtaking. The restoration of the 1900 cottage with its orignal hard wood floors, new wood burning fireplace, large front porch with swing, coupled with a new state of the art kitchen for cooking up a great vacation meal and other great amenities is an awesome setting for a family vacation of fun and relaxation.

Historic Gulfport is the perfect vacation spot for family and friends. There's so many things to do within a short distance. The sandy white beaches are simply beautiful and if you like Casino's, a trolly car will bring you to many Casino locations along the Mississippi coast. We love our beach cottage and hope you will too.

Home away from home :)

  • 5 of 5

We brought our three young daughters here to wait out Hurricane Irma. We loved it! The girls loved the yard and the front porch swings and the sun porch where we ate our breakfast every morning. The weather was beautiful! Like fall in the mornings - the closest we will get, having recently moved south from New York. Debbie was so helpful, accommodating and just so sweet - making a stressful situation so much better! Thank you, Debbie!

We will be returning!!

Lovely beach cottage!

Loved the cottage! Plenty of yard to walk my two poodles. We especially enjoyed the sunroom. Lots of beautiful birds and squirrels to watch.

The home was furnished with everything you will need during your stay. Would definitely stay here again.
