- Located in a nice area of Long Beach just a couple of minutes walk to the beach, the cottage is within a few miles of several new restaurants with Gulf views in Long Beach, as well as a marina and public pier. There are also many more restaurants, marinas and attractions within a 30 minute drive in either direction. With a WalMart a couple of miles to the west and grocery stores and pharmacies located only a couple of miles to the east, you can easily make a quick trip to pick up supplies. The closet casino in Gulfport is only about 5 and a half miles away, and there are 10 other casinos within a 20 to 30 minute drive. Hwy 90 runs directly along the beach for 40 miles from Bay St. Louis to the west all the way over to Ocean Springs to the east. This drive is very unique because of its mostly unobstructed view of the Gulf for the entire route plus its abundance of live oak trees all along the route. This drive also features the sweeping views from bridge connecting Bay St. Louis to Pass Christian, as well as the bridge between Biloxi and Ocean Springs. Also, the route takes through 6 distinct towns, all with their unique charm. If you want to go a little further out, you can be in the French Quarter or the Garden District in New Orleans in less than an hour and a half. Just west of New Orleans and also within a 2 hour drive is the Great River Road in Louisiana populated with several magnificent antebellum plantation houses. This whole area offers a variety of activities to take part in or just stay in the peaceful surroundings of the cottage and relax....moreless

We absolutely loved staying here! The house was clean and had everything we needed! We loved the concrete flooring and countertops! The pool was great! Our black lab Grady loved swimming in it as much as we did! Thanks to Jack and Elizabeth for allowing us to bring our two dogs on vacation with us! The neighborhood is very quiet and just a short distance from the beach! Jack gave us information on the area as well as recommended some nearby restaurants, this was greatly appreciated! Thanks again for a wonderful vacation!

The house was very clean and in great condition. It had all amenities such as internet, satellite tv, washer and dryer, etc... which was great for a family. Above all we were so pleased to find a rental that allowed our two large dogs to join us as well. The pool, though small, did the trick and the fenced in yard offered privacy.My only critique would be to add a few more pots and pans so that you can use more than a pot or two at once. A skillet would be great. We would be interested in returning if the owner continues to rent out this property.

My family and I had the pleasure of staying in what is truly a charming cottage. My boys aged 8 and 14 along with my other boy (20 week old Chocolate Lab Puppy) Harry, had the best time playing in the pool. Mr. Hess gave us lots of great information on our first day which helped us to locate all the nearby restaurants and other things to do. Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us.

It was a pleasure staying in this lovely home, just a stroll away from the beautiful, sandy beach! I started and ended each day walking on the beach, and enjoyed lounging in the pool with my daugher in the afternoon. Everything we needed was at hand or very nearby. It was a wonderful, relaxing week!

Beautiful house exactly as pictured. It is an easy walk to the beach, and has everything you could need nearby (gas station, fast food, nicer restaurants, grocery store, walmart, etc all within a mile or two). The house was very clean and well maintained. The owner is a wealth of information and was easy to reach. Thank you for letting us enjoy your house while we were in town!

Perfect for a family vacation
This rental is beautiful and perfectly located for exploring the Gulf Coast. Walking distance to the beach and just a short drive to Biloxi, Bay St. Louis, Pass Christian, and Gulfport - we never lacked anything to do. New Orleans is close enough, we even took a day trip over the the French Market and French Quarters. The cottage is perfect. Beautiful, clean, comfortable and stocked with everything we could dream of needing. And while we spent our days exploring, the cottage is so homey and cozy, we looked forward to getting back every evening to swim in the pool (loved the pool lights!) And I can't say enough about the owners' hospitality. Jack met us on the first day and gave us the low-down on everything there is to see in the area, as well as practical things like how to get to the grocery store. We casually mentioned my son had brought his basketball and was wondering if there were any public courts nearby, and Jack had hunted out a court for us by the next day! If you are looking for a place to relax and enjoy life on the Gulf Coast, I can't think of a better place to stay.

The Coastal Cottage was the perfect vacation home for our family. The home is attractively furnished, clean and well-equipped. Our girls loved the pool and the beach was within walking distance. The location is great and allowed us the opportunity to explore from Bay of St. Louis all the way up to Biloxi and each were only a few miles from the cottage. The restaurants in the area were great and there were several options for shopping all within a short drive. The proprietor made us feel like family and we enjoyed visiting with him. When visiting the Mississippi Gulf Coast we will definitely choose to state at the cottage.

We really enjoyed the 4 night stay at your lovely costal cottage. This property is even better in person than in the photos. The house was well thought out in design and in the decor. The location was close to everything , beach, restaurants,shopping, etc. Nice back yard w/pool for our dog to run around. Jack the owner was very gracious and answered any questions we had. Property is very well maintained which was a plus. We would definitley recommend this property, it is exactly what is advertised.

Cutest Place Ever!
Cutest Place Ever!
I can't say enough positive things about this Charming Coastal Cottage. From the moment we walked in we were thrilled - concrete floors that looked like Italian tile - didn't have to worry about our dogs scratching the floor- what a relief. The pictures online accurately show what you can expect, but until you are staying here, you can't appreciate how lucky you are. Everything is new, everything is spotless. The pool outside is lovely and such a bonus. This house is less than a block from the coast. You can't ask for a better location. Close to stores, restaurants, perfect! The owners were so considerate and helpful - even finding fun things for us to do. Easy drive to New Orleans. This house is truly a gem. We guarantee that you will love it!

About the owner: This is one of several of our family's properties in the state. We live here part of the year, but can be flexible to accomodate vacation rentals.
Why the Owner Chose Long Beach:
After looking for property in other beach areas, we visited here about one year post-Katrina & appreciated the small town atmosphere of the area and could see the potential for the MS coast to be rebuilt better than ever. We wanted to help be a part of that rebuilding.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We love the privacy of being removed from other houses, but still close enough to neighbors to not feel isolated. We also love that the property is surrounded on several sides by live oak trees giving the property a beautiful backdrop. The great location (close to the beach, grocery shopping, restaurants, hospital, etc) made it ideal for us. Also, adding the pool recently has made the cottage even more of a place to relax and enjoy the beach-area lifestyle.
