  • I'm reluctant to write this review

    "This review is hard for me to write because I know it will increase this owner's business at this property,which will make it more difficult for me to book it on future trips. This house is fantastic. Great location, truly magnificent house and amenities with the owners bending over backwards to make your stay memorable . If you are going to Bay St. Louis you need to only look at one VRBO, this one. We booked another stay here before we left."

  • Great place to stay!

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We visited Bay St. Louis to meet family we never knew we had. Turned out one of our cousins lived two blocks over from the rental. Lots of room and we had everything we needed. We cooked 3 out of 5 nights we were there. We grilled below while listening to the radio and even attempted to hula hoop. The hoops clearly weren't meant for grown women lol. Our family just really enjoyed our time there. We were close to everything.(casinos, beach, nola, fishing, grocery, most importantly family) Never had to drive far for anything. Thinkin' we should make a trip in the summer where we can really enjoy the beaches. Was a bit cold this trip!"

Bay St. Louis Travel Tips

Bay Saint Louis Vacation Rentals Make Great Bases for Mississippi Vacations

The picturesque seaside community of Bay Saint Louis is ideally located to give visitors plenty of things to do in the area. The city has just over 8,000 residents and is a friendly historic town with good shopping and amenities. The pristine beaches of the Gulf of Mexico are the main draw but there are also fine dining, casinos, golf, boating, bike trails, fishing and swimming. It is just an hour's drive from New Orleans which makes for a great day out. Best of all, Bay Saint Louis is very affordable.

Places to Visit Around Bay Saint Louis Waterfront House Rentals

Gulfport is just 20 minutes away from your Bay Saint Louis vacation home where there is a great Children's Museum and the Gulf Islands Waterpark, both popular with families of all ages. New Orleans is a wonderful place to spend the day. Explore the shops and attractions in the Historic French Quarter or take a tour of the cemeteries which are really fascinating. The IMAX Theatre and the Audubon Zoo are great places to visit, or take a trip on the old paddle steamer with its musical carillon down the mighty Mississippi River. The cuisine and nightlife around Bourbon Street are legendary.

How to Get to Bay Saint Louis Vacation Homes

Bay Saint Louis is very easy to reach by car. It is just six miles off the I-10. For those wishing to fly to Mississippi, the closest major airports are Mobile Regional Airport, 92 miles away in Alabama, or the New Orleans International Airport in Louisiana, 70 miles from Bay Saint Louis. There is a small local airport at Gulfport/Biloxi which is 22 miles away.

The Advantages of Mississippi Vacation Rentals

For families, staying in one of the lovely Bay Saint Louis waterfront house rentals makes good sense. Just yards from the beautiful sandy beaches and warm gulf waters, it is a natural playground for families. Having your own home base makes it easy to create cheap snacks, drinks and meals, saving a fortune on restaurant dining and hotel drinks. Vacation rental homes offer plenty of space with as many bedrooms as you may require keeping everyone happy in their own space. The freedom to sleep in or go to bed at different times is a big advantage over staying in a hotel suite. You may not have the daily maid service but that is more than outweighed by the advantages of additional space, convenient locations and the lower cost of renting a vacation rental home.

Things to Do Around Bay Saint Louis Vacation Rentals

The Old Town of Bay Saint Louis and the Depot District are two areas which have been restored and offer quaint antique stores, art galleries and delightful places to eat and drink. Fans of the Robert Redford film "This Property Is Condemned" will recognize many of the buildings as it was filmed here. The 1928 L & N Train Depot is now surrounded by a park and serves as a local landmark. More up-to-date entertainment can be found at Casino Magic. Along the beachfront there is a three-mile boardwalk and biking trail which passes old homes, small shops and fishing piers. Bikes and kayaks are available for rent here.

What to Expect Weather-Wise at Your Mississippi Vacation Rentals

Mississippi has hot humid summers and mild sunny winters, making it a pleasant place to visit any time of year. The summer average daily highs reach 90 F and in the winter months, daytime highs are around 60 F. It is fairly humid all year-round and receives five to six inches of rainfall most months, generally in short, heavy showers.
