About Lisa Drew-Authement

My name is Clay Gillespie. My wife Irene and I have been very happily married for 22 years. We have 15-year-old triplets (two girls and a boy) as well as a 14-year-old boy. It has definitely been a whirlwind raising 4 children who are all within a year apart, but we wouldn't change a thing.

I grew up in a small Louisiana town called Ponchatoula - about 90 minutes from the Sandhill Beachhouse. I attended college at Southeastern Louisiana University in Hammond, Louisiana. Shortly after college, I moved (of all places) to Cherry Hill, New Jersey. That's where I met the love of my life - Irene, a Jersey Girl - born and bred.

Nine years ago, we moved our family to Chicago, where we currently reside.

Lisa Drew-Authement purchased this house in 2017

Why Lisa Drew-Authement chose Ocean Springs

The first time I saw Sandhill, I immediately fell in love with its charm and character, not to mention the serenity of its own private beach right on the Gulf of Mexico. Our favorite part of the home is the oversized covered back porch, where we can sit all day, taking in the breathtaking views and sounds of the ocean.

Ultimately, Irene and I plan to retire here, but in the meantime, we are pleased to share our home as a vacation rental property.

What makes this house unique

The most desirable benefit of the Sandhill Beachhouse is, well, the BEACH! It sits on its own private natural white sand beach. The sounds and views of the Gulf are absolutely spectacular, whether taking them in from the oversized back porch, the gazebo, or from your beach chair right on the water.

The home itself is a charming southern beauty, with open floor plan, soaring ceilings, and spacious rooms. Oh, and the elevator is pretty cool as well.

The most relaxing vacation ever.

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect property for our family to spend Thanksgiving! Plenty of room inside and out to play and visit, a wonderful playground in the back (we had an 18 month old and a 3 year old with us) porches for relaxing on, sand for digging in - and then there was that fabulous kitchen... double ovens, five burner gas range, coffee bar, wine fridge, butcher block bar with sink... it was perfect! The owners thoughtfully provided toys, games and puzzles that we all enjoyed. The Sandhill Beachhouse more than met our needs and exceeded all our expectations.

Beautiful house, fully stocked with numerous amenities on a private beach.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great family summer vacation at this gorgeous house. The owner has stocked it with numerous items not found at hotels or other VRBOs...lots of towels, silverware, platter ware, cooking ware, even a punch bowl for the Sangria :). Our kids had fun with the provided beach toys, board games and access to the Direct TV, even pre-recorded programs. Beautiful covered back porch with incredible view. Also has convenient gas grill that we used on multiple times. The master bedroom was private, across the living room from the other two bedrooms. Highly recommend this site! Owner/manager was a joy to work with and responsive to all our questions/inquiries.

Nice and Quiet Place for a Family

This was a very clean and nice beach house. We had toddlers, teenagers, adults, and elderly with us. Everyone had a great time. The porch is especially nice.

What a wonderful way to celebrate our retirement

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently retired and were fortunate enough to stay in this lovely home. This spacious house is beautifully decorated, well-maintained and very comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked, including coffee & tea. The large porch includes a BBQ grill and a view of the beach. There’s even a playground and lawn & sand toys for the kids. There’s really no need to leave the house but if you do you can stroll through the quaint town of Ocean Springs for a relaxing lunch, home made ice pops or shop in the unique stores. If you’re really adventurous you can drive the short distance to Biloxi where they have casinos and restaurants. We enjoyed all of it. But my favorite times were the early morning strolls along the beach, enjoying the chair swing from the gazebo and sitting on the front porch, wine glass in hand, listening to the ocean as the sun set. Thank you for sharing your home with us. What a beautiful way for my husband and I to begin the next phase of our life together.
