I am relocating to Gulfport, MS in the next week. I would like to find a reasonable place for my wife and me not too close to the gulf. I wonder what Lyman or Kiln are like. Please tell me how close are they from Gulfport?

We are interested in a condo, apartment, house with 3 bedrooms 1-2 baths.

Thank you for your help.

Love & Blessings,

Thumbs up MS neighbor

dont live in Gulfport anymore,but DO live over by the MS/AL State Line in a town called "Gautier"(pronounced GO-SHAY for those not familiar) Anyway, you might like the Orange Grove area. Better schools(if that's important), MUCH cleaner(but pay attention to neighborhoods and if there is more renting than owning going on--tends to get run-down quick when people dont own something....I know that sounds mean, but hey--it's true unfortunately. And of course, not EVERY renter is horrible..I wasn't...or at least my landlords always gave me BACK our deposits! lol) Back to Orange Grove...it's like being in the country, but you arent 10/15 mintues away from everything...malls, shopping, stuff to do, 15-20 minutes from the Gulf, and then there are several rivers in Orange Grove if you are a river rat or enjoy the outdoors. PLENTY of building happening..although due to Katrina, the real estate market is COMPLETELY taking advantage of the situation. If I were you and/or looking to RENT/BUY something..I'd wait to PURCHASE anything for at least 6-12 months...this market is gonna go BUST(people paying WAY TOO MUCH for NOT enough house/home)....and THEN you'll get more for your money!! Make sure you get excellent backgrounds on properties to see if they had to be gutted or redone due to storm damage or flooding...also find out WHO the contractors were, if they were local(in case need more repair) and so on...I'm sorry if I sound paranoid but I've lived here most of my life...and I promise you----it ISNT the locals that are presenting the 'problems' that we seem to have lately! Just DO YOUR HOMEWORK and everything should be GREAT! I love it here on the Gulf Coast and I've lived in several places around this country(military for a while) and ALWAYS return to this place. Aint a hurricane nor a tsunami ever going to run us out....ok...maybe I should have used proper language there...."There ISN'T a hurricane or tsunami going to run...." you get my meaning! lol Good Luck!

Hi, here are hospitals in order from west to east...
Big Hospitals listed only...

Bay St. Louis - Hancock General
Gulfport - Garden Park, Memorial
Biloxi - Biloxi Regional, Gulf Coast Comunnity
Ocean Springs- Ocean springs general, singing river

If it were me, I would go towards Ocean Springs area,
That area was not tore up as bad as hancock area.
I have friends that work in all of them, Hancock had 4 ft. of water,- still working on it. but open.
Garden Park had only 8". - almost normal now
housing will be not as hard to find in eastern area, - and there is always Mobile Al. 30 min away.
Good Luck.
