Property description

Located on Bayou Phillip which connects to the Jourdan River and the beautiful Bay of Saint Louis, this house is the perfect place for fishermen. A great public boat lauch is available at the end of the street. Moor your boat at the dock behind the house and the open water is only a short distance from the house. Redfish, speckled trout and flounder are abundant in the bay. There is a public boat lauch at Bayou Caddy located by the Silver Slipper. Trailer your boat to that launch, and spend the day fishing the reefs and bayous nearby. The boat launch and parking is free. The Louisiana marsh and Cat Island are just a short distance from the bay and offer some of the best fishing in the South.

The house is on a dead end street. Plenty or room underneath the house to park your vehicle or just relax and enjoy grilling outside. It has a small deck on the back for watching a wonderful morning sunrise and there is always a breeze in the evening.

There are three bedrooms...two queen beds on the first floor, one full bed, two twin beds, and washer and dryer upstairs. The house has three full bathrooms.

Minutes from restaurants, shopping, Silver Slipper casino & Hollywood Casino, golfing at The Bridges Golf Club an Arnold Palmer signature championship golf course, tennis, boating, bilke trails, Antique shopping, Art Galleries, Canoeing (contact Wolf River Canoes at their website), swimming and fishing. Gulfport is only 20 minutes where you will find a great Children's museum and the Gulf Islands Waterpark - the largest waterpark on the coast, featuring wild rides, miles of slides and cool summer fun for all ages. New Orleans is about an hour away where you can visit the Historic French Quarter, Aquarium of the Americas, IMAX Theater, Audubon Zoo, Famous New Orleans Restaurants or take a cruise on a paddlewheeler. Bay Saint Louis and Waveland have many interesting shops, so plan to explore the area and see what we have to offer! If you would like more information about things to do in Bay Saint Louis, please visit the Bay Saint Louis City website.

Not interested in boating or fishing? This is a great palce to just relax and enjoy the coast. Come enjoy great food, casinos, shopping, golf or just stay put with a good book or movie. The beach is wonderful! Call or email with any questions about the property or other area activities and we'll be happy to help.

Small, well mannered pets are welcome. There is a section of the beach near the Silver Slipper Casino that is pet friendly. Please advise us if you are bringing your pet and if your pet is over 25 pounds. Be considerate of the next guests......SCOOP THE POOP!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We are native Mississippians. We believe in God and we are proud to be Americans. Phillip is a Viet-Nam veteran. We both love fishing and boating. We're also avid NASCAR fans. We love going to the races in Talladega and we usually visit another track sometime during the season. We have 3 children, 8 grandchildren, 4 cats, and 4 dogs. Our two Schnauzers, Rudy and Cowboy, always travel with us on overnight trips. We live in north Mississippi tucked away in the woods at the end of a long driveway. We feed the deer and turkey in our back yard and we keep a watchful eye on a favorite deer we call 'Tripod' because she is missing a front leg. We rescue dogs and cats that have been abandoned and try to find them good homes. We love the Mississippi gulf coast and want to spend a lot of time there when we retire from our jobs.

Why the Owner Chose Bay St. Louis:
We purchased this house just a few days prior to hurricane Katrina's unwelcome visit to our coast. We made the decision to find a vacation home on our own gulf coast after hurricane Ivan destroyed our favorite cabin on the Bon Secour River in Alabama. As we traveled around we discoverd Bay Saint Louis. What a wonderful little town!! Even though there have been a lot of changes since the hurricane, we still love our location and expect it to get even better in the future.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This is a great house. The upstairs bedroom is a good place for the kids to watch movies or play their video games. It also works well when two families are sharing the house. Being on a dead end street, there is hardly any traffic. We own the lot next to our house so there is plenty of room for parking and it gives us a lot of privacy. We can fish from our deck or take a paddle boat ride in the bayou. Bay Saint Louis is working hard to rebuild the town and beach area. Every month the merchants in old town Bay Saint Louis host 'Second Saturday' to encourage local residents as well as visitors to explore the shops. Construction is underway on the beach for a marina and recreation area. We hope you will consider a vacation in Bay Saint Louis.
