Come enjoy not only a vacation but a way of life on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. The Gulf Palms Cottage is located on a quiet, safe and comfortable street in Long Beach just three blocks from the beach and harbor. With huge Live Oaks, the balmy sea breezes and plenty of outdoor space the cottage is situated in the center of everything the Coast has to offer. Our 3 bedroom, 1 ½ bath cottage is just moments from great restaurants such as Steve's Marina, Bulls, Harbor View Café and Darwell's. The exciting night life of Biloxi with its' casinos and entertainment is only a short drive down the beach.
