Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

“Undisturbed, quiet, and peaceful” describes the setting of this beautiful gulf front retreat. The home is delightfully relaxing and beautifully furnished. Whether you bring your golf clubs, a fishing pole, or a good book, you are sure to enjoy your stay!!

The lapping waves of the Gulf of Mexico are ten steps from your balcony where the only sounds you will hear are from the seagulls. You may even witness two crabs playing on the beach, but for sure you will be enchanted by the natural beauty of this property. This beach is in it's natural state, therefore we strongly recommend that you wear some type of foot wear on the beach.

Although located seemingly miles away from civilization, this gulf front home in Ocean Springs is only 20 minutes from the casinos of the Mississippi Gulf Coast. For the shopper, there is a substantial commercial area (shops, restaurants, movie theatre, etc.) within a 10-15 minute drive. If golf is your game, you will be delighted to find the St. Andrews Golf Course two miles down the road.

The home is furnished in sleek, polished décor. You may entertain friends and relax in the comfortable family room with plenty of seating. There is a 37” flat screen television in the family room which is equipped with Direct TV service (no network channels). Take in an unsurpassed view of the gulf on our balcony with outdoor furnishings just off the family room.

Enjoy cooking a meal for your family in the gourmet kitchen. You will find all the kitchen gadgets and dinnerware needed in our fully stocked kitchen. There is table seating for six in the sunny breakfast area. The water is provided by a well resulting in occasional low water pressure.

The master suite is elegantly decorated and has a comfortable queen size bed outfitted with luxurious linens. There is an outdoor balcony off the master bedroom and a master closet with ample space. The master bathroom is oversized and designed in contemporary Caribbean style. You will enjoy double vanities with granite countertops, a bathtub/shower, and plenty of space to dress.

There are two guest bedrooms. One is playfully decorated with youngsters in mind. It has one twin bed ( with a trundle bed underneath) and a bunk bed with trundle. The room sleeps 4. The other guest bedroom has a queen bed and could serve as a second master bedroom. Both guest bedrooms have brand new, comfortable mattresses and fine linens. There is a tastefully decorated shared bathroom with tub/shower. An additional television for DVD use only is located in the second bedroom.

About Michelle Garner

We are a large family that loves to travel. We have been to several places around the world, but always seem to find Ocean Springs is one of our favorite resting spots.

Michelle Garner purchased this house in 2009

Why Michelle Garner chose Mississippi

Our family of 5 purchased this property because of the seclusion it offered and the getaway that we were searching for. Its right outside the city and located on a natural beach so we don't have to deal with sunbathers and beach combers, just hermit crabs and pelicans! We originally purchased this property in March of 2005. Then Katrina blew in and totally wiped the original house and its foundation out to sea. We had to use navigation map with land plot to even find the site! So we rebuilt in 2009 and have our perfect beach home.

What makes this house unique

This beach house is located on an isolated part of Belle Fontaine Beach in Ocean Springs. There are only about 20-25 houses located up and down the street. We do not have any direct neighbors on either side of the home and it sits about 10 STEPS to the water. The property is perfect for sunning and relaxing with some tunes. I enjoy getting up in the morning and taking my coffee onto the porch and watching the pelicans fly overhead and sometimes am lucky enough to see dolphins playing right off the shore. Its ideal for the family or person who really want to break from the commercial vacation and relax in quiet. Its like your own island but within 15-20 minutes to Ocean Springs historical downtown square and the casinos. Its also great because New Orleans and Mobile are both only an hour and a half away, great for day escapes. We love this place and are confidant you will too!

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our vacation at this beautiful house! There were 7 of us and there was plenty of space. Bath towels were plentiful, although we didn't really find any kitchen towels. No big deal, we just washed and used an extra hand towel and wash cloth. We took our own beach towels, but there were a few there as well (side note: there's not really beach access at the house, but there is a pretty nice beach about 15 minutes away). The guys took off every morning for their jaunt to town and found the marina to buy fresh shrimp off the boat. They were amazing! We cooked most of our meals at home, but we did find a couple great places out. Quakes was great for ice cream! We had a little issue getting connected to the wifi, but once we figured it out it worked well. There were lots of movies to pick from, and there's also direct tv. We spent the majority of our time out on the deck. It was wonderful to sit out and drink our coffee, or have a beer, and watch the birds and the boats. And we saw 3 dolphins a couple days! So peaceful! We were less than 2 hours from New Orleans and visited there one day as well.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this house. Michelle was great to deal with and was quick to respond to questions. Thanks, Michelle! :)

Great home and location!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this beautiful, inviting beach house, the week of tropical storm Cindy, although the storm put a damper on our intended plans, we still made an abundance of memories, which was our sole purpose for our visit to the gulf coast. This location is peaceful, you just want to lay in the chairs and watch the waves crash and listen to the seagulls squawk all day. Needless to say, we loved it! We enjoyed fishing and caught a few reds, sheep head, and crabs, subsequently having a fish fry/crab boil. Which, might I say, was delicious! Our 14 month old was amazed by the seagulls and pelicans that flew over constantly. We spent quite a few days/nights rained in, so we played a few card games and popped some popcorn to watch a few movies. We ate at a few of the near by restaurants, The Shed ( the sweet potato casserole is delicious), Shaggys ( the shaggys stacker is a must try), Woody's Roadside diner (great burgers) Quakes ( we ate there several times, their home made custard is amazing) Mikey's on the Bayou (we loved their seafood bread) and our ultimate favorite, which is located in Long Beach, Darwells, the food is Superb and so are the people. This vacation was a 10 and the house and location felt like home, we are never ready to leave when are week is up. Can't wait to plan our next vacation and enjoy it again next year.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the kind review. I am always concerned about guests finding things to do when the weather doesn't want to cooperate. I am so glad that you and your family enjoyed the "down time" and experienced the best part of Ocean Springs, the relaxation of the beach! Those suggestions for restaurants will be very helpful to future guests also! Have a great rest of the summer:) Michelle

Beautiful views, secluded beach house

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful long weekend stay here. The house is confortably furnished for both people and dogs, and we enjoyed just sitting on the front and back porches and watching the water scenes playing out in front of us.

Great views right on the water!

  • 4 of 5

We went to Mississippi for a cousins wedding. The house was great and the views were beautiful. The front room was ours and opening the windows with the waves 10 feet away made for a great nights sleep. The marsh views on the back side were awesome as well. We are such wild partiers that every night we would put one of the provided puzzles together. Really no major complaints, but the first night there the kitchen table almost came crashing down on us when doing a puzzle and there were no extra trash bags provided. Overall we loved our stay and will surely use VRBO for future vacations.

Wonderful place to vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice house, great view, right on the beach! We fit 4 adults and 2 kids very comfortably here during our weekend get away. Very spacious​. Beds are super comfy. Beach view is amazing. Not a lot of neighbors which provides nice privacy.

Only negatives - there was quite a bit of animal hair throughout the house and the water leaves a weird feeling on you after your shower.

Owner's Response: We appreciate you taking the time to review our property in Ocean Springs. I am so sorry that you had any animal hair around the home. I will make sure that is addressed with the housekeeping staff. As for the shower, we are out of the city limits, therefore, we are on well water. That is a bit different from water from the city, so we can't do much about that but appreciate that you still enjoyed the view and the home. Please don't let the well water keep you from returning! We would love to have you consider our home in the future.

Quiet area and beautiful house!

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful house and scenery! Not much of a swim/ beach area but still had lots to do. We fished, caught and released crabs and hermit crabs!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Yes, unfortunately our water is just too shallow for actual swimming, but perfect for wading around and looking for ocean life! We are so glad you had a nice time fishing and relaxing at the home and we hope you choose Ocean Springs in the future.
