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.

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 Waveland
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.

The property was outstanding far excited our expectation

Perfect little house just steps from the beach
Very quiet and quaint little place. We enjoyed the beach and the owners were nice. It really seemed as though it was a private beach with only a the owners and us there throughout our stay. Very lovely and hope to stay here again and again!
Thank you for such a nice review. It was nice sharing our lovely beach with you and we do hope to see you again and again!
Great Place/Great Location
The Little House was exactly as pictured and advertised but even more impressive when viewed in person. It was bright, clean, well stocked, and well maintained and less than a minute walk to the vast beach and the handy sidewalk/bike lane to town. Darlene (aka George) and Henry were quite friendly and were prompt to address the few minor issues that arose during our stay. We were happy to have found it and would be happy to return.
It was a pleasure meeting you and having you stay in our Little House. We certainly appreciate the very nice compliments.
We have such a wonderful beach and walk/bike path and I am always glad when our guests use and enjoy them as much as you did!
Exquisitely clean & organized property.
Our family enjoyed a very nice peaceful Thanksgiving away! Such a quiet getaway. The owners are extremely nice & accommodating. Close proximity to the white Sandy Beach & to downtown Bay St Louis shops & restaurants.
We will return.....soon.
We are glad that you came and spent your holiday with us. Traveling for a holiday can be stressful so I am glad that our house helped you have a peaceful one. Hope to see you again!
We really enjoyed our stay ! Comfortable, relaxing and peaceful. Well stocked kitchen for cooking should you chose to do so. Beautiful Gulf views.. walk across the street and catch your dinner. King sized bed is very comfortable. Lovely patio for early morning coffee, grilling or unwinding after a fun day! Great location, close to restaurants and shopping. Highly recommend you staying here. The owner's are wonderful too....I'm certain you will have a splendid time!!
Thanks so much for a great review! We try to make sure that the house is well equipped so our guests can relax and enjoy the views, the beach and our beautiful little community!
Great Waveland house
The house had everything we needed, location was perfect and the owners were very nice. We had room to park our boat, and they have a great patio with a water view. Also, the owner let us use their bikes and we rode to Bay St Louis one day and Waveland the next.. There is a great bike path along the beach.
It was very nice to meet you and we are glad that you enjoyed your stay. I was excited to see someone use the bicycles and especially to visit downtown Bay St. Louis via the bike path. Thanks for the fish - it was great!!
