Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)
This unique cottage is located directly on the beautiful Ocean Springs Harbor. Its large deck is a wonderful place to relax, and observe the sailboats and wildlife. Pelicans, Great Blue Herons, Night Herons , Egrets and Skimmers all frequent the harbor on a regular basis. You can easily walk to the beach or downtown Ocean Springs, which is filled with art galleries, boutiques and over 100 restaurants. The casinos are just 10 minutes across the Biloxi Bay. Charter boats are available for hire in the Ocean Springs Harbor and Biloxi Harbor. Several golf courses are within a short drive, as well as kayak rentals and tennis courts.
The Master bedroom is located upstairs in a loft, with the bathroom downstairs. The large living room has a queen size sofa sleeper. There is a kitchenette with a dining area. Bicycles are available with the cottage to cruise the shaded streets of this historic town up close. Our beaches are still uncrowded and our waters provide some of the best seafood in the country. Something wonderful is always in season: crabs, crawfish, oysters and always fish of all kinds. In season, you can even walk to the the harbor and buy fresh shrimp right off the boats.
Our Harbor House is filled with local art and whimsy. It was once part of the original Ocean Springs Yacht Club which was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. Thankfully, the Guest House survived and has been completely remodeled with love since the hurricane.

About Beth & Jack Riley
Jack & Beth Riley lived on this property until Hurricane Katrina rudely moved them out in 2005. However, they couldn't give up on this wonderful location and still retain the Harbor House for themselves, family, friends and visitors. The Riley's own a photography studio in downtown Ocean Springs.
Beth & Jack Riley purchased this Cottage in 1998
Why Beth & Jack Riley chose Front Beach
This was once our home. We moved to Ocean Springs because of its small town charm and historic beauty.

Cottage on marina
Accommodations are eclectic, homey comfortable. Situated on a quiet marina with water views. We enjoyed our stay. Marina lights very bright at night. Bring a sleep mask.
So glad you enjoyed the water views but your suggestion is also good for those who might by bothered by the harbor lights. In fact, I’ll try to provide them from now on.
our favorite cottage
This was our second time. Can't wait for the next time!
The best!!! Wished we could have stayed longer!!
Perfect getaway spot! Loved being so close to the water and we used the bikes everyday! Hope to be back as there is much more to explore in Ocean Springs and we wouldn’t stay anywhere else! Thanks for sharing your bit of paradise with us!!
The perfect place! We really lucked out!!
We had the most incredible time thanks to y'all's cottage!! Two bikes, right on the water, one block from the beach, and all those windows!!! It was so idyllic. We loved every second. We were especially fond of the little table by the window in the kitchenette - perfect for coffee and tea in the mornings while watching the boats go by. The grill was wonderful to have too - saved a few bucks by grilling steaks and potatoes and eating on the deck rather than eating out one night. We wouldn't have changed a single detail. We are booking it again for next year as we speak, only this time we are staying longer!!! Thank you again!
With Love, from Steven and Megan in New Orleans
Sweet little place, close to beach and anything you would want to do!
Had everything you need, unload your bag and have fun!
Beautiful. Can't imagine staying in a nicer place. Astmosphere, charm, super peple
The cottage couldn't have been closer to my idea of a perfect vacation. Beth and Jack were so welcoming and friendly without being at all intrusive. The bay and boats right in the back yard, beach a short walk away. The cottage itself was charming, comfortable, airy and open--just the right size too. 5 Stars for the total experience. Thank so much for having me.
We enjoyed having you, Suz snf hope you can return soon. Beth
