Property description

This unique waterfront 1700 square foot fully furnished home is built on pilings right on beautiful Fort Bayou walking distance to downtown Ocean Springs. The bayou feeds into Biloxi Bay which leads to the Gulf of Mexico. The home has an elevator for ease in handling luggage and groceries with a separate stair to the front door. There is an outdoor deck approximately 1400 square ft which is a wonderful place to relax and observe the wildlife, boats, dauphin, pellicans, ducks, blue herons and hawks which are just a few of the wildlife viewed from the deck, boardwalk, or pier. You can easily walk to downtown Ocean Springs which is filled with art galleries, boutiques and restaurants. The first casino is about 5 miles away and can be walked, driven or boated to it's location. Charter boats are also available in Ocean Springs or Biloxi for fishing. Fort Bayou is known for kayaking, water skiing, pontoon boat sightseeing, and fishing. Rent or bring your own boat and tie up to our 90 foot pier.

If you love golf there are many courses within a short drive with the closest being in sight of the property just across the bayou.

The home is an open concept. The kitchen is fully stocked and equipped with stove, oven, microwave, double sink, full size refrigerator and wet bar included in the kitchen island. This large room also has a game table, breakfast table, 4 bar stools at the kitchen island, couch and chairs. There is a 40 inch flat screen TV connected to direct TV and a DVD player. The kitchen and bathrooms have tile flooring with the remainder of the home having bambo wood flooring.

Both bedrooms have Queen Beds and one bedroom has ensuite bath with walk in jetted tub/shower combination and double vanity. The second full bath is right outside the other bedroom door and has a shower tub combination with single vanity.

There is a full size washer and dryer in a separate utility room.

Bikes are sometimes available with the home to explore the Ocean Springs area. Beaches are not crowded and a short distance from the home. Once you see the deck and pier you will probably not see a need for a beach exploration. Seafood is plentiful and depending on the time of year, you will find something in season: fish, crab, crawfish, shrimp and oysters.

This home is on the same property as the owner but the homes are not connected. The renter will be using a shared driveway with the owner of the property.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1990

About the owner: I grew up in this area and always dreamed of living on this bayou. I only left the area to attend dental school and then returned to set up my practice. Married and built a larger home on the property. This rental home was completed rebuilt after Katrina. My wife and I have enjoyed the sunsets and have never given a thought to moving from this beautiful area.

Why the Owner Chose Ocean Springs, MS, USA:
As a child I fished and paddled around this bayou. This is a very safe, friendly place to live.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This property offers total relaxation with quiet evenings and beautiful sunrises and sunsets. But just a couple of miles away there are casinos and lots of excitement. You get the best of both worlds.
