About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms 1.25 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Lovely historic home with lots of grace and charm located in quaint Long Beach, MS, one block from the beach, across from the University of Southern Mississippi at Gulf Park, home of the Friendship Oak. This home sits on a large tree filled lot with plenty of privacy, just minutes away from shopping and restaurants in Long Beach and gaming in Biloxi and Gulfport and one hour away from the French Quarter in New Orleans. Unbeatable value for those looking for a quiet vacation away from the hustle and bustle of crowded beaches.

Three bedrooms upstairs, furnished with comfortable queen beds and two twins in third bedroom. A lovely Sunroom also has a queen size bed and comfortable chair makes a place to enjoy early morning coffee or quiet afternoon reading. There is a futon that can be folded out to use as additional sleeping.
The large inviting deck can accommodate grilling, eating or just relaxing.

On site attendant will be available for easy check in. Shuttle services can be arranged for transportation to and from shopping and casinos. Chartered fishing trips also available.

This home has been in our family for 80 years. We have spent many happy times in this home and have lots of good memories. We recently decided to share the unique charm of this house. The house has been almost completely restored and we will continue making upgrades. We hope you come to love it as much as we do and return often to enjoy to quiet slow pace of Long Beach, truly a jewel of the Gulf Coast.

Long Beach has been named as the most desirable place to live in Mississippi by the real estate blog Movoto. The website reviews communities around the country.

Long Beach was ranked number one on the list based on total amenities, quality of life, crime rate, tax rates, unemployment, commute and weather.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1935

About the owner: This house has been in my family for almost 80 years. My parents grew up in Long Beach and moved to Tennessee after they married. My husband and I live in Holly Springs, MS and love to come to the coast to relax. Our family has a long history on the coast. I still have lots of cousins who live on the coast full time. My sister refers to this house as her 'happy place.' We'd love for you to come for a visit.

Why the Owner Chose Long Beach, MS, USA:
This home has been in our family for 82 years. First it was owned by my grandparents and then my father and aunt. We have enjoyed it as our vacation home for years and now its your chance to share in the experience. This is truly a home away from home. All linens are provided, as well as a fully stocked kitchen. There is a grill for outdoor cooking and lots of room to enjoy.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The House of Hewes is a family home. It is not a hotel or a condotel. If you want stainless steel and granite, this house is not for you. If you want a lovely home for your vacation with lots of charm and character, this is the place for you. We love sharing our home with guests.
