About the property

Newly renovated 3 bedroom cottage with golf cart, wifi, cable & pet friendly

Be one of the first to stay at this newly renovated vacation rental!

Welcome to your southern beach oasis. Newly renovated 3 bedroom house is the perfect get away with excellent amenities.

Tastefully decorated with new furniture, it includes an equipped kitchen with new stainless steal appliances and all of the comforts of home. The three bedrooms include a king and two queen beds all with high end mattresses, luxury bedding and "Dacron" pillows for a comfortable night’s sleep.

An open floor plan is perfectly designed to entertain multiple guests. Enjoy a family gathering or a friends retreat away from it all, with games like Monopoly and Yatzee to fill up an evening of fun . A short 10 minute walk will bring you to Old Town Bay St. Louis and to the dog friendly beach or jump on the golf cart included in the rental. It’s a comfortable home that is great for enjoying a "night in" especially with a BBQ grill and games like corn hole to entertain your group.. A large backyard gives you plenty of space to stretch out and play with kids and dogs or to just kick back with friends for a BBQ.

After a gorgeous day at the beach, return to your oasis and enjoy the delights of the full body massage chair to enhance your relaxing vacation. A wireless speaker is available to hook up your phone or computer to enjoy some of your own tunes.

Plush hotel style cotton towels are an ultimate luxury for your refreshing bath. A limited number of beach chairs and beach floats are also available. Other amenities include cable tv, wifi, and an in-home-filtered water system.

Cable TV's are also included in the living room and 2 of the 3 bedrooms.

The house is located in Old Town Bay Saint Louis and is just a short walk to the beach, but why not cruise in style like the locals on the 4-person electric golf cart that is included in each rental! This 2011 golf cart is road ready and is the perfect way to enjoy the old town restaurants, bars and shopping, or make a speedy trek to the beach which is just 3 short blocks away. Using the house golf cart will save you $85/day if you were to rent one from a local company!

Come down to enjoy the beach, this quaint town filled with great restaurants, bars and shopping, all while enjoying the comfort and amenities of this southern beach oasis.

*** Please note, prior to check in, please submit a valid drivers license and proof of auto insurance for those guests that will be operating the golf cart in order to get lock box code to the golf cart keys.

Guest Access:

Renters will have access to the entire home, backyard, laundry room, front yard, driveway, etc.

We ask that guests limit the number of vehicles they park in the driveway and along our front property line to 3 total cars (unless otherwise authorized by the owners).

Host Interaction:

We are available to answer any questions that may arise during your stay. We also have a detailed guest book that should assist with most of your questions as well.

Other Things to Note:

We are laid-back and amenable to a variety of personalities and people. Our house is comfortable and created with a lot of love and space for you to unwind and a focus on your personal relaxation. However, please be respectful of our space, of our neighbors and of yourself.

We love dogs, so bring your little fur baby with you. The beaches in Hancock County are dog friendly. Let us know a bit about your fur baby when booking. There is a $50 pet fee.

The massage chair is available to guests renting the property.

We have a modest cancellation policy. Inclement weather, airline cancellations, illness and other circumstances occur when we least expect them. Please consider investing in travel insurance.

Lastly, all guests are responsible for all covered losses during the reservation.

All guests are obligated to pay for damages or losses caused by such responsible guest.

The Neighborhood:

We live in a residential beach neighborhood so life here is relaxed and at a slower pace (which is why we all want to come to the beach!). Our neighbors are friendly and will likely wave hello.

The home is centrally located in Old Town Bay Saint Louis and only 3 blocks from the beach and from the center of the action on Beach Boulevard. The beaches that span from Bay St. Louis, through Waveland are dog friendly so take your fur baby with you to the beach. Our closest bar and restaurant The Blind Pirate and Sno Ball Stand is just 2 blocks away.

A grocery store and store to purchase wine and other adult beverages is just a short 3 minute drive.

There is a large park with a splash pad for kids (and adults) to enjoy just 2 blocks away.

The Hollywood Casino and Golf Course are a 7 minute drive from the house.

Getting Around:

Getting around Old Town Bay Saint Louis is easy, it's a 10 minute walk to the beach, a 5 minute walk to the closest restaurant and bar, and 7 minutes to get to our favorite coffee shop.

There is a free trolley that runs from Waveland to Bay St. Louis, with stops at the Silver Slipper Casino, Buccaneer State Park, Waveland Beaches and the shops and restaurants in Bay St. Louis.

For a great beach town experience, cruise like a local on our 4-person golf cart which is free with your rental. The 2011 cart has been updated with new batteries so you can have plenty of power to get to your favorite beach destination, yacht club, or a day spent downtown shopping and dining.

About Bethany

It's been our dream to have a beach escape that is close to our home in New Orleans and we come down to enjoy it as much as we can. Unfortunately for us, work gets in the way, so we invite our renters to enjoy the house as much as we do! We own an event planning company in New Orleans and work in the music industry. We don't have kids but our fur baby Maceo loves the beach as well, so we spend as much time as we can kicking around in the sand and watching Maceo splash around in the waves.

Bethany purchased this house in 2017

Why Bethany chose Bay Saint Louis

We purchased this mid-century modern home in 2017 and then spent the next 6 months giving it a make over and more of a beach feel. We love the marine green metal roof and the palms out front. The wood plank tile floors and washed wood furniture give it a comfortable clean feel. The large back yard and the doggie door were a huge selling point for us as we wanted to enjoy outdoor areas for both our dog and for our friends and family. We are foodies and had to go all out with new appliances in the kitchen as we spend a lot of time making meals and enjoying company. And we are super clean freaks so the property will feel like new every time we invite a guest into the house and if it's not, please let us know ;)

What makes this house unique

It's been our dream to have a golf cart to cruise around on and enjoy the beach life, so we had to include it in our rental. It's a newer 2011 model which for us is like the best road vehicle ever!

We work and play hard, so including the full body massage chair was a must. It's in the living room so it's easy to relax without missing the party, and it can be used to lay back and read a great book as well.

We went all out with new furniture and comfortable bedding because that's always important to us when we go and stay in a vacation rental. We made the house just the way we wanted to have it when we go and stay there on our own or with family, so hopefully we haven't missed anything that would make your time at our Fur Baby rental the best time yet!

Very Nice Surprise!

  • 5 of 5

What a pleasant surprise to find such a nice place to stay for a week of vacation. I don't think we could have picked a nicer place to enjoy ourselves. Everything is in new condition and shows no sign of any wear. Our dog OBEE really enjoyed the shaded fenced in backyard, which was a requirement for me.

The golf cart provided a fun and very easy transportation system to access all the downtown attractions, and finding a parking space easy. Very handy because we had a person who really struggles to walk any distance.

Bethany is a joy to work with, and was very accommodating when I discovered I"d left a personal item when departing.

I found her written notes very helpful and handy when checking in and out. All in all, very nice accommodations for a stay in BSL which I would highly recommend.

Thank you Bethany.

Great property and great owners!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, myself and our child really enjoyed our stay. The house is so cute and being able to bring our dogs was so convenient for us. And our dogs loved the big back yard! My favorite was driving around BSL in the golf cart. So fun! The bedrooms were so comfy, I slept so well. And we enjoyed playing board games provided by the owners. You can tell the owners thought of everything to make their guests happy. So glad we chose to stay here during our child's spring break. Thanks so much!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect house for a quick trip to Bay St. Louis! It is just a few blocks from historic downtown and the beach. The house is so nice and comfortable and had everything we needed. Bethany was a pleasure to work with - the perfect hostess! I highly recommend staying here. We will be back, and will bring our fur babies next time!

Live like a local

  • 5 of 5

Reserved our stay at Bethany's BSL (Bay St Louis, or "The Bay", as the locals refer to it) house for a stay on the coast. Once we got there and checked in, after one night, we reserved all of the open days she had left! Ended up staying almost 2 months! It is the perfect place if you want to see what the locals live like here. The golf cart is such a plus. We used it every day it was warm enough to head to the beach and walk our dog- just like the locals do! The house is quiet, the fenced in yard and doggie door is just like our house up north. Bottom line, if you want a nice, quiet place close to the beach, this is the place. Especially if you travel with your dog like we do. Everything exactly as it is advertised. Thank you Bethany for the use of your place! Hope it is open next winter so we can stay again.

Cute remodeled home near cart included!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Bathany’s house just a short golf cart ride away from the beach, shops and restaurants of Bay St Louis. The house was recently renovated and had everything we needed for a great stay for us and our dog! Bethany was easy to work with and everything was clean and functional. We will be back! Thanks for a great stay!
