About the property

The Bay Breeze Cottage is a three bedroom, two bathroom home located 2 blocks from the beach and 3 blocks from Main Street in Bay St Louis. It is in the historical district, is walking distance from the marina, beach, piers, restaurants, shops, and bars. This charming historical home has the original floors, original bead board ceilings, and the original doors from The Mockingbird Cafe dating back over 120 years. This home's architecture is referred to as a shotgun house. Shotgun homes were built after the Civil War until the 1920's, and are believed to have originated in New Orleans, but are found all over the South. The Bay Breeze Cottage is decorated with a coastal feel with upgraded luxury details such as complimentary bath robes, toiletries, beach towels, laundry essentials, wifi, and satellite television. You can enjoy your morning coffee on the cosy, screened-in front porch, and walk to some of the best restaurants on the Gulf Coast. Bay Breeze Cottage is also held to a high standard in cleanliness. You will not share a bed with strangers here, because our duvets are washed before every arrival of new guests. The Bay Breeze Cottage is the perfect home away from home where couples can get-away or families can enjoy a wonderful family vacation. Y'all come and see us!

Why Heather Smith chose Bay Saint Louis

Location, location, location!!!! The Bay Breeze is located 2 blocks from the ocean and 3 blocks from Main Street. You can walk to the shops, restaurants, and bars. If you don't want to walk a couple of blocks, rent a golf cart, because in Bay St. Louis the streets are golf art friendly! The Bay Breeze is also decorated beautifully with a coastal feeling and will be one of the cleanest rentals you will ever stay in.

What makes this house unique

I fell in love with this home when I saw it! It has the classic architecture of the early 1900's in the Bay St. Louis area with a touch of New Orleans. When I step inside this cottage I want to throw my cell phone away because it reminds me of a simpler time where people sit on the screened in porch and visit awhile! I hope you get this feeling as well!

The cottage was beautiful, charming and very clean. As one of six sisters, there was plenty of room and the cute town and beaches were within walking distance. Fun trip all around!

Adorable, immaculate cottage in the heart of town

  • 5 of 5

My family of four recently stayed at Heather’s house in the Bay for the weekend for a friend’s wedding. We were delighted upon arrival to find such a sweet, immaculate cottage waiting for us! The furnishings were lovely, the kitchen was well-stocked, and the bathrooms had plenty of fresh towels and toiletries. And the front porch was great for morning coffee and the newspaper. Heather even had and a little gift basket with snacks and bottled waters waiting in the fridge. I can’t overstate how comfortable we were in the house, and Heather was easily reachable by text when we had a question. We would love to stay here again on our next visit to the Coast!
