Overview

About the property

Ideal Accommodations for Your Group in Historic Downtown Ocean Springs!

The Space:

The Benton Beachside is YOUR new home-away-from home. Sunny, comfortable and spacious, this home has everything your group is looking for during your stay including a new oven and fridge in the kitchen as well as a new grill and patio furniture. All beds in the 4 bedrooms are very comfortable.

The Neighborhood:

Located in quaint historic downtown Ocean Springs, The Benton Beachside is steps from the beach and Gulf of Mexico. A short 15-minute stroll through picturesque streets lined with mossy oak trees will take you to the heart of downtown where many restaurants, bars, and shops are located, among other things waiting to be discovered. (Don't miss the Farmer's Market at the Depot on the weekends!) For the more adventurous, located next to the house is the entrance to the 1.7-mile walking path across the Biloxi-Ocean Springs Bridge - ideal for anyone hoping to get in some exercise while on vacation or for catching a glimpse of the stunning sunrise or sunset over the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Or - enjoy a morning walk on the 1-mile boardwalk along the beach which starts at the Yacht Club and ends at the Harbor where you can buy fresh shrimp right off of the boat! On the other side of the bridge are casinos and all of the nightlife that Biloxi has to offer.

Check out my guidebook for recommendations on things to do in the area!

- Front Beach less than 5 minute walk

- Downtown Shops & Restaurants less than 15 minute walk

- Greenhouse on Porter Coffee Shop less than 5 minute walk

- Right across the bridge from all the casinos and nightlife in Biloxi

Great house

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic long weekend in Ocean Springs. This house is very centrally located, spacious and close to the water. The owner and property manager are wonderful, responsive and very accommodating. We will be back again! Thanks for sharing your home with us.

Family Friendly!

We had a great experience in the home near the beach and local shops. We toured Biloxi and Gulfport which were very convenient to this home. Eat at Simply Donuts off Old Spanish Trail!! Well worth the visit!!

Staycation

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Benton Beachside to accomodate overflow guests for our son's wedding and could not have been happier! It was spacious, clean, bright, and surprisingly quiet for its location. Frank was immediately responsive when I had questions. Cyndi welcomed us with home made banana bread. The beds were very comfortable too. I especially liked the black board with things to do and see in Ocean Springs. Perfect!

Wonderful Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house could not have served our needs better. We used it as a central location to visit during a cousin reunion, with half of our group staying at the hotel nearby.

The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed to prepare our meals so that we could spend our time visiting rather than waiting on service in a restaurant. We took a trip to buy gumbo at Quality Seafood in Biloxi for our Saturday evening meal only to find out the gallon containers were frozen. Having a crockpot in the home allowed us to leaving it thawing and heating while some of us went exploring the quaint shops of Ocean Springs and the other half sipped Bloody Marys on the patio at The Office bar downtown, which I highly recommend!

Having two living areas and a beautiful patio equipped with furniture and a swing allowed 11 of us to visit and spread out all throughout the house. We also may or may not have eaten a few satsumas off the beautiful tree located in the back yard. What a treat!

Frank was so accommodating and made booking and check-in a breeze. We are already planning to make this an annual event!
