About the Property
Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)
While the cottage has welcomed all guests it has a particular appeal for couples who come here to celebrate life events, like anniversaries, birthdays and even an engagement.
Guests often comment, 'This is even nicer than the pictures' and love the unexpected like a seasonal herb garden, ample parking, and it being dog friendly. One of the many advantages is how close it is to downtown and the beach, yet much quieter and private.
The kitchen is fully stocked or you can grill your dinner outside. The cottage is like your own condo...small, intimate, tastefully decorated and geared for your comfort. It is nestled in among ancient live oaks, magnolias and beautiful winter blooming camellias.
The cottage is located on a lovely Street in a quiet, residential neighborhood. It is not used for a party house or large events. I cannot accept children under ten due to the spiral staircase, and the minimum age for renting is 25.
Blue Skies & Great Sunsets,

PS. I am very dog friendly, but with some restrictions, and also a pet fee.

- There is a beautiful, historical cemetary at the end of the street that both photographers and historians enjoy. Ocean Springs, Biloxi and Gulfport have frequent festivals, concerts and events year round. Some guests take day trips to New Orleans and Mobile, and I can arrange for a excellent pet sitter for hire if you want care for your dog. I can arrange for a massage therapist to come to the cottage for your health and pampering....moreless

Dear Guests, I will send you a link requesting either a deposit of 125.00 or if you prefer, the total amount. If you choose to pay a deposit the balance will be due at arrival by check or cash. The deposit will be deducted from the balance amount, so you will not have to wait for it to be returned after your stay. Using this method of payments keeps you from incurring a booking charge through VRBO.
We are dog friendly, and the fee is according to the number of pets and the length of stay. The pet
must be current with flea RX and neutered/spayed. Cats are not permitted due to guests allergies.
There is a strict NO SMOKING policy inside or on the grounds.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call me.
