Kiln house description
Enjoy nature's paradise in this beautifully furnished home located on the quiet Bayou Talla leading into the Jourdan River. With gorgeous morning views of the Wetlands, you’re sure to enjoy your morning coffee on the covered deck watching pelicans, egrets, rabbits, deer, and an occasional alligator.
This is a perfect location for a Gulf Coast excursion, blending the secluded coastal wetlands with watersports, golf, tennis, fishing, and big city lights! It's also ideal for Executive and Corporate rentals working a project at Stennis Space Center; located only 10 minutes away.
The home is built on 9ft stilts and is designed with an abundance of relaxing personal nooks, outdoor dining, and social gathering areas. The ground floor will accommodate 12 guests for parties and cookouts. An in-house elevator provides handicap accessible access to the second floor’s covered deck and main entrance. Two bedrooms, two baths, a full kitchen with granite countertops, and cathedral ceiling in the great room accommodate this open floor plan for 4 overnight guests. Stacks of books in the house and a Public Library nearby, one can take advantage of the many comfortable places, indoors and out, to relax and read while observing nature’s secluded beauty or waiting for a tug on the fishing pole from the bayou out back. Guests are encouraged to take a trip down the street to the community’s large swimming pool and tennis courts. While secluded, the wireless internet and cable television keep you in touch with the world…if you decide to check in!
Located just a few minutes’ drive from the house are Mississippi beaches, gaming casinos, and an outlet mall for fun and shopping. If fishing is your game, bring your boat, kayak, or canoe the Jourdan River, Bay of Saint Louis, and Gulf of Mexico are all accessible from the boat dock; or just fish from the backyard. The grill on the ground floor lets you grill’em up fresh! For the Ecologist, the Jourdan River Blueway Trail literally begins at our home and invites canoers and kayakers to explore an 8.5 mile trail through coastal floodplains and a riverine ecological system. The tranquil waters of the upper Jourdan River offer a haven for birds, wildlife, and paddlers! From Bayou Talla, the blueway trail guides kayakers and canoe enthusiasts past the artesian springs, hardwood forests, and through the natural beauty of these wetlands. Parking is available for multiple vehicles and boat trailers with a covered carport for one. There is a public boat launch just down the street but far enough away to not affect the tranquility of this coastal treasure.
Easy access to I-10 provides a quick 45min ride to the heart of New Orleans’s famous restaurants, architecture, museums, French Quarter, and Superdome sports complex. The entire Gulf Coast is linked to some thirty or more challenging golf courses to make your coastal getaway a memorable occasion. Commercial airports are located in Gulfport and New Orleans; and a small airport for private planes is less than 10 minutes away.
Please call or E-mail the owner with your questions. Also take a look at our New Orleans Loft on VRBO at #474841; it is absolutely in the best location for what New Orleans has to offer. Thank you for visiting our page.

ReviewsWrite a review
This has been our winter escape for the past two years. What a gem. Located in a quiet (at least in the winter) neighborhood and yet only minutes from the beach, shopping and a variety of great eating establishments and within an easy drive to New Orleans. The tasteful southern coastal décor of this home expresses the relaxed feel of "life on the coast" . The open living area seems both spacious ..yet cozy. With two well accommodated bedrooms and baths on the main level and quaint children's bedrooms upstairs it's more than ample for 4 adults and a few young ones...The kitchen is well equipped and laundry facilities included.... Can't forget to mention the porch/deck...Great place to watch boats float down the Jourdan River on their way to coastal waters and the area under the house is another great place to relax and there's even an elevator and ..... did we mention fishing off the dock.....they can be caught! We can't say enough about how wonderful our stays have been.... .
