Took seven teenagers to the beach and stayed at The Ivy Vista Beach House in Gulf Port. I have had lots of vacation rentals , some good some bad and always like to review for other people looking. We loved this house on stilts. it had a partial view of the beach from the wrap around deck(the deck was awesome). Due to katrina everything that was between our house and the beach was gone. There were two other houses sharing the area but they did not mess up the view completely. A children's water splash park is a house away along with a rubber walking trail and a workout center that is open during the week. You can walk thru the park and park in their parking lot across from the beach. This part of the beach also has parking right next to it which is good for getting your stuff in especially if you walk the pier it has a section where you can step off directly to the beach so don't have to drag thru the beach to the water. We have already booked for Cruising on the coast for October. The master bed was comfy and the children's room had a captains bed and a twin, the captians bed did not have a mattress underneath on the pull out so we had brought a twin air bed and a sleeping bed so that added another bed. The sofa bed is good but bring an extra comforter to sleep on top of (to help the usual thin mattress), The third bedroom is good nice bed there also. If you had some air mattress /sleeping beds you could sleep little kids easy for extras. It was clean and had start up things such as toilet paper , etc but bring extras. Very quiet , far enough away from road to be nice. Our condo last year was loud. The wireless and the router is in laundry room. along with washer and dryer , bring your supplies. All in all we loved it ! and like I said already booked for October and for next summer. Good thing you can book and pay per card the week of.
