Ocean Springs guest house description

While the cottage has welcomed all guests it has a particular appeal for couples who come here to celebrate life events, like anniversaries, birthdays and even an engagement.
Guests often comment, 'This is even nicer than the pictures' and love the unexpected like a seasonal herb garden, and ample parking. One of the many advantages is how close it is to downtown and the beach, yet much quieter and private.
The kitchen is fully stocked or you can grill your dinner outside. The cottage is like your own condo...small, intimate, tastefully decorated and geared for your comfort. It is nestled in among ancient live oaks, magnolias and beautiful winter blooming camellias.
If you read the guests comments and feel this is a good fit for your needs, please check the calendar and send me an email at camellia-cottage@att.net DO NOT BECOME A VICTIM OF SCAMS, asking for huge deposits, and full payment. Your deposit request will ALWAYS come directly from my business account. I DO NOT advertise on Craigs List.

Blue Skies & Great Sunsets,

p.s. I am very dog friendly, but with some restrictions.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About the owner: This area has been the perfect place to retire to after years of living in large cities. Being close to nature is very important to me, and where I live inspires me every single day. My cats and dogs agree and are flourishing here. The friendly people, beautiful surroundings, and abundance of artists have added immeasurably to my life.

                  Why the Owner Chose Ocean Springs:
                  I have travelled worldwide and am happy and content to call Ocean Springs my home. Come for a visit, and see what it does for you.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Guest House:
                  If you are in need of true relaxation as well as fun, food and culture this is it. I take great pride in Camellia Cottage and all of the wonderful reviews it has been given.
