About the property

3 Bedroom 3 Bath Gulf Front Designer Home

Welcome to Sunset Pointe! This charming beach house is at the end of a peninsula with wrap around water views of biloxi and the gulf of Mexico. Situated only fifty feet from the water’s edge this designer home offers peace and tranquility along with all the comforts of home. An elevator is provided for ease in handling luggage and groceries. Picture yourself sitting on the large screened-in back porch enjoying spectacular sunsets and listening to the sound of gulf water lapping the shoreline on your own private white sand beach. Should fishing be on your list of priorities by all means bring your pole. This untapped beach offers a variety of fish and crabs. All this beauty and nature and amazingly this house is only twenty minutes from the picturesque downtown of Ocean Springs with its many restaurants and designer shops and twenty-five minutes from biloxi casinos, restaurants and night life. For golfers there are several first class courses nearby and for hikers we are only minutes from the Gulf Island National Seashore Park. For serious shoppers a prime outlet center is located forty minutes away in Gulfport.

Cathedral ceilings with skylights in the living room provide a light and airy atmosphere. A 46” flat screen tv equipped with direct tv sits over a cozy gas fireplace. In the kitchen, granite counter tops and hardwood cabinets partner with a bay window breakfast nook where you can see and listen to the waves as you enjoy your meals. A separate dining room is available for more formal gatherings. The home has hardwood floors in the living room, dining room and kitchen. The master bedroom, guest bedroom, stairs and loft room offer plush carpet for comfort and quietness. French doors in the kitchen, living room and master bedroom add to the beauty of this home. The home is delightfully relaxing and beautifully furnished with everything you need for a worry free getaway.

The master bedroom has a large private open deck facing the water. The master suite bath contains an oversized shower and a marble vanity offering his and her sinks. The toilet is in a separate room for additional privacy. The large walk in closet has built in dressers and clothes organizers.

The guest bedroom on the first floor has a queen bed and walk in closet and lots of big windows. The nearby bath contains a tub/shower and decorative pedestal sink. A sky window offers additional light without compromising your privacy. All bathrooms in the house have tile floors.

The loft room is equipped with a comfortable sleeper sofa. This “upstairs” room offers privacy and spectacular views from its many windows. A computer desk is set up here and wi-fi is available for all your electronic needs. This room has an adjoining full bath with tub/shower, marble vanity and closet.

Beautiful location, breathtaking views

  • 3 of 5

Sunset Pointe on Belle Fontaine Drive is a beautiful location on the Mississippi Sound. Unlike Florida Panhandle beaches, this stretch of beach is a more natural coastal setting, with live oak trees growing near sand. It is quiet and peaceful, and the views of a variety of species of birds and active dolphins is beautiful, especially at sunset. The house is spacious, nicely elevated, and has an elevator to make moving in very convenient. Prospective renters should know it is dated and in need of repairs, however. There is also no filtering system on the water, so the strong smell of sulphur that so many other reviewers mention is unpleasant, though safe to drink. We complained to the maintenance company about some cleaning issues, and they were responsive. Go for the natural beauty and location not only of the secluded beach but of nearby Oceans Springs and its lovely downtown area, but expect to rough it a bit. More of a camp-like experience than a traditional beach house stay.

Great Vacation and Ocean View !!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved it there! Rented it for 19 nights. Just sorry it took so long to post a review! Sue was prompt and was very helpful when the breaker went out and sent a person to check the stove right away. Loved the ocean views! Kitchen well stocked. I brought a crock-pot to make it easier on cooking. Only thing that did not work was the TV cable, but we did not watch it anyway. They had a DVD player-not blue-Ray (bring your on DVD's) and take plenty of bottled and gallon of water for cooking (water was okay-just thought it was tinted and smelled of sulfur-already knew about that prior). Take BUG SPRAY for those pesky flies when walking! Great place to just relax! Everyone was very friendly.

Family beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

A wonderfully relaxing few days for our family of five. Everyone enjoyed the convenience of being right on the beach, and the screened porch is the perfect place to have meals and listen to the waves. The house itself is accommodating and lovely. Lots of fun restaurants in Ocean Springs, but there's also a fully equipped kitchen if you want to stay in. Highly recommend!

Amazing Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing weeked just soaking up some sun, fishing, and relaxing. We had 4 adults, 2 children, and 2 dogs. The beach was wonderful, the house was spectacular and everything was so accommodating. We went the The Shed for dinner one night, the Crooked Letter Brewery for a tour and beer tasting (so worth it!), and took the kids to the candy shop. The house was beautiful, clean, and everything we could've hoped for. The pics make it look a little far back off the beach but it's not, it's RIGHT THERE. We will be back

Best house we've ever rented!

  • 5 of 5

Arrived on Jan.1st to a gorgeous warm sunny day. The house is beautiful, everything exactly as described. Spacious but comfy, good beds, fully equipped kitchen (including some spices in cabinet) and best of all my dog was welcome! Due to the current space between houses, there's a big stretch of beach that's all yours. (Lots are for sale on sides.) Can hardly believe we've only got 2 more weeks before time to go home to the cold and snow. Jan. & Feb. here may become every year's tradition for us. A couple of minor problems were quickly and happily handled by the manager Susan.
