Overview

About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

The 'Little House' is only 100 steps from the beautiful white sand beach in Waveland and is located behind the Big House. It is a 900 SF Mediteranean style stucco house featuring a clay tile roof and Mexican tile open deck. As you relax on the deck under the shade of the live oak tree, you have several views of the beach and a 300+ year old cypress tree.

Inside, the very open floor plan has ceramic tile throughout the house and many double windows to add to the open feel.

The spacious bedroom has a king bed and two large closets. The bathroom features an oversized whirlpool tub with ceramic tile enclosure and counter tops. The fully stocked kitchen has plenty of counter space and cabinets. The laundry room is equipped with a full size washer and dryer.

From this location, you can be in the New Orleans French Quarter in less than an hour. On the way to New Orleans, you can stop by the Stennis Space Center Infinity Museum that features science and space exhibits.

Traveling to the west on the beach road, you can visit the Waveland Public Pier for fishing and beautiful views of the water, stop by Buccaneer State Park for a little recreation and continue to the Silver Slipper Casino for a little gaming or eat in their restaurants.

Traveling to the east on the beach road, you will be in Bay St. Louis in about 30 seconds. Bay St. Louis 'Old Town' has restaurants, shopping, antiques, a coffee house, and golf cart rentals. Hollywood Casino that features The Bridges golf course is also located in Bay St. Louis.

This area is still rebuilding from Hurricane Katrina so it is very quiet and relaxing, but there is plenty to do and see!!

Guided fishing trips are available, but reservations must be made in advance.

About Darlene

We love living on the beach. We built the first 'Little House' in 1986. We were 'weekenders' for many years and dreaded going home on Sundays. When an opportunity came for us to move to Waveland permanently, we did!

Darlene purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Darlene chose Mississippi

When Hurricane Katrina destroyed the 'Little House' and the 'Big House' in 2005, we built the smaller house first so that my husband and I could have a place to live while we designed and built the big house. We lived in the little house for 4 years and rented it to a friend for a year.

It was sitting there empty, so we decided to list it with VRBO. We have used VRBO several time ourselves and liked it.

We like the personal contract with potential guests through e-mail and phone calls. The personal touch means a lot when renting from an 'Owner'!

What makes this cottage unique

The house is only 100 steps to the beach and a great walking and bike path. The views and sunsets are great.

The convenient location is only 10 minutes to the restaurants and activities in Waveland and Bay St. Louis.

Great Stay!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Darlene and Henry for sharing your "Little House" with us. The house was warm and welcoming with all the comforts of home. The beach was clean, quiet an only steps away from the house. If you choose to leave the peace and quit.... there are many great restaurants and shops near by just ask the owners. They are very accommodating, nice and friendly and always a text or phone call away. We enjoyed our stay and looking forward to our next visit.

Perfect beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at "the little house" was a perfect vacation! The house is just as pictured.The beach was so close and secluded it was like we had our own private beach. The owners were wonderful and gave great ideas of places to visit. We were close enough to go to Biloxi one day and New Orleans the next. I can't wait to go back and would recommend this place for couples and families. Thanks Hank and Darlene for letting us enjoy the pleasure of Waveland! You are the perfect hosts and hope to see you again!

The Little House makes a great vacation

  • 5 of 5

This has been our 5th year staying in the Little House and we highly recommend it. It's steps to a perfect beach with white sand that's combed every day. There is a cement boardwalk that you can walk from one end of the bay to the other meeting friendly people. The house is bright and well kept with comfortable furniture with a great patio where you can grill, eat out at the table while enjoying the view of the bay. The house has everything you need for a perfect stay and the owners couldn't be more accommodating and friendly. It's in a perfect location with Bay St. Louis a few miles away that has many new restaurants and great shops. The Buttercup is great for breakfast or lunch. The listing is perfectly written. We certainly enjoyed our visit and look forward to our next time.
