Car: Recommended

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.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: This is one of several of our family's properties in the state. We stay here part of the year, but can be flexible to arrange around vacation rentals. Our 2 golden retrievers - Callie and Caleb (pictured) love to swim in the pool and lie on the cool concrete floors. We definitely wanted to make our rental pet-friendly because we know how much pets are a part of families now, but also how hard it is to find nice rentals that will accept pets.

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.
