Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)
- english, spanish
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. The house was not being used so we decided to list it with VRBO because we had 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 3-10 minutes to the restaurants and activities in Waveland and Bay St. Louis.

Great cottage for a small family!
My family of 4 spent the week of July 4th in this little house and it was the perfect size for us. The girls (our 15 year old and her friend) loved riding the bikes along the beach sidewalk. We all enjoyed walking on the beach. We went to New Orleans twice during our stay, as it was just about an hour away. We enjoyed the crab festival in Bay St. Louis and the Ground Zero Hurricane Museum. On July 4, we sat on the beach across from the house and watched fireworks at the pier, and and several people let them off on the beach. Darlene and Henry were wonderful hosts. I would definitely stay here again!
A quaint getaway, beach was pleasant and not crowded at all. Home was clean and comfortable. This was a very relaxing experience. St bay Louis has a quaint downtown area. Sun, beach, relax
If you are looking for an awesome property with some awesome owners, stop right here. Not only is this located steps away from the beach, but because of its location it is like your own personal white sand beach on the Gulf of Mexico. Nothing but great memories were created and the owners were extremely helpful on the area.
Lovely property, beautiful beach
Amazing Beach Cottage
This was an amazing beach cottage. Close to Bay St. Louis, five minute or less car drive along the two-lane 25mph beach boulevard. However, the cottage is far enough away where you can enjoy peace and quiet. Main street is a quaint little street with shops and dining. Or you can dine at one of the several restaurants on the beach/marina. My wife and I walked the quiet white sandy beach every morning. We would walk 2-3 miles and maybe see one other couple. The water is a gulf water. Bathwater warm but a little murky. It is that way all along the coast. The apartment was clean, equipped with dishes and everything needed to stay in and cook, sufficient towels, bedding, etc. Our hosts warmly greeted us and were available if we needed anything. The bed was comfortable. Multiple size pillows which was nice for us. We both have neck issues and needed thin pillows, which was one of the options. The A/C worked well. Windows were screened and could be opened in the morning to hear the waves (when there was a little wind) or the birds when there was not. The grill was ready to go when we first arrived and we cooked some steaks the first evening instead of dining out. Grocery stores are nearby and so we were able to have several meals at the cottage. New Orleans is a one hour drive. Could be a little longer if you hit some traffic in the morning. We were scheduled to stay are last two nights in New Orleans. We loved the stay in the cottage in Waveland and we were able to extend it and so we did and just drove in to NO both days. We will stay here again if it is available next time we come to Waveland or New Orleans.
Thank you for that wonderful review. I think you touched on every aspect of the house and our little community. We really enjoyed our visit with you on our front porch and were happy that we had the extra 2 days available for you to extend your stay in the "Little House". Hope to see you again!

Thanks for a sweet review. We love sharing our Little House and meeting new people. We have had several "sisters" weekends lately! Hope to see you again!
