About the Property

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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Ocean Springs, MS, USA:
This was once our home. We moved to Ocean Springs because of its small town charm and historic beauty.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Watching the boats and birds in the harbor from the deck; walking to the beach, buying fresh shrimp from a boat in the harbor or going to one of the many shops, galleries or restaurants in town.
