    "great choice. Quiet neighborhood, great location. It was nice to have a place that had all the amenities that you can't get in a hotel (full kitchen, etc.)."

  • Great cozy unit with a beautiful view of the Gulf

    "Rating Details: I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very happy with the location. The vacation rental was very clean. The property manager was very helpful. Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: No complaints at all. The unit was spacious and cozy with a great view of the coast. The full sized kitchen was the best amenity being that I could prepare and cook my own meals as opposed to eating out everyday. It was located right on I90 and within 1 mile from the nearest mall, Walmart, and other food and retail stores. If you're military, they honor the off-base per diem rate."

  • Amazing

    "We stayed 10 days at this condo and were absolutely delighted with everything. The beds were the most comfortable beds we have encountered in a condo. The kitchen was outfitted with everything we needed. Full time tenants of the building were very helpful with directions to stores, restaurants and fun things to see. The condo owners were very easy to work with. The view was terrific. Although we only stayed 10 days, the washer and dryer in the unit came in handy, too. We would recommend this to anyone looking for an outstanding condo at a very reasonable price. Thank you, Craig, for your help."

  • What a pleasure....

    "It is always such a pleasure when we visit Oak Shade in Ocean Springs, MS. My mother started the tradition some years ago and we would always spend 4-days and 3-nights (which was never enough). This year my mother wasn't with us; she recently passed away, but we continued the tradition in her honor, the week after Mother's Day this time. Oak Shade is beautiful and we always rent out all three houses. The main house is where I always spend the majority of my time but the other two (Palmetto & Azalea), are just as beautiful and welcoming. No one ever complains about the sleeping arrangements because there is no bad place to sleep. Ms. Marian makes us feel so welcome into her beautiful, clean, well maintained resort. This year we used the BBQ grill in the beautifully landscaped backyard and just enjoyed sitting outback and relaxing with our soft music. Each morning and evening we would take the very short walk down to the dock and sit and watch volleyball games and listening to the soft waves. We were also within walking distance of the local restaurants, where everyone seems really friendly. Please book your trip to Oak Shade, you will not regret it."

Mississippi Travel Tips

Best Time of Year to Visit Mississippi

Mississippi enjoys a long summer and relatively short winter. This makes it a popular summer vacation destination. While most people still tend to travel during the peak holiday season of July and August, the longer summer season means that you can still enjoy good weather outside of peak season. In the summer months, the temperatures average around 85 degrees Fahrenheit. The warmest month is traditionally July. During the winter months, the temperatures average 48 degrees Fahrenheit, with the coldest month being January. The northern interior is generally more temperate that the coastal areas. Occasional snowfalls are not uncommon in the central and northern parts; however, it is seldom significant amounts and it usually quickly melts away. Most of the rainfall occurs during the summer months in the form of short-lived but dramatic thunderstorms. The Gulf Coast is particularly prone to hurricanes that blow across the Gulf of Mexico in the late summer and early fall months. The interior of the state usually gets the dregs of the tropical storms which results in heavy rainfall.

Music Legends at Mississippi Condos

Mississippi has a rich cultural heritage. Like its neighboring states, it has a strong music tradition with the signature music style being the Blues. In Clarksdale, you will find the Delta Blues Museum where you can see memorabilia and photographs of some of the great Blues legends. There are also numerous Blues Bars across the state where you can hear your favorite tune. Tupelo, which is in northeast Mississippi, is the birthplace of Elvis Presley. Here, you can tour his childhood home which is a humble two-room house. Next door is a museum which contains many different memorabilia items that detail his life. You can also take a stroll through town and see the fairgrounds where he performed early in his career or the hardware store where he bought his first guitar. For country music fans, you can visit Meridian which is the hometown of Jimmy Rogers. The Jimmy Rogers Museum in town pays tribute to this country music legend.

Visitors to Mississippi

Mississippi is a state that attracts a diverse range of visitors. Many come to visit the museums attributed to music legends but the state has much more to offer. It has a rich historical heritage with many museums. There are also many excellent golf courses where golfing enthusiasts can enjoy a round. The natural attractions are ideal for outdoor enthusiasts that enjoy hiking, mountain biking or RV-ing.
