About the property

Cottage Style Gulf Front House

Enjoy the beachfront beautiful Gulf and amazing Sunsets from the beach when you vacation at Pelican Place.

Brand new fully furnished Cottage Style private house on the Gulf of Mexico finished in March 2013 with 3 bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths with approx. 2300 sq feet of living space to enjoy. Pelican Place has 2 master suites, one upstairs and one downstairs.

Amazing Gulf views await you in every room in Pelican Place.

The house features a large porch with adorondack chairs to relax as you take in the Gulf views and the beautiful sunsets. At night, you can see the twinkling lights of the casinos and the Ocean Springs bridge across the Gulf. The sandy beach calls your name from the porch where you can relax and listen to the Gulf wash your cares away. Enjoy the pelicans, seagulls, ospreys and bald eagles or watch dolphins play in the Gulf. The white sand beach offers hours of beach combing and relaxation.

As you drive down the road you might see an osprey hunting lunch or spot a Great Blue Heron standing in the water stalking a fish.

When you arrive at Pelican Place, as you travel up the paved driveway; you are greeted with the sparkling Gulf in front of you beyond the white sandy dune. On the ground level, is a two car garage and a covered seating area looking out onto the beach. There are two sets of stairs, one from the garage and the other is on the back side of the house that leads to the porch. The wide L-shaped porch wraps around to the master bedroom. From the porch, you can relax and let the sounds of the waves lull you into a nap. The porch looks out onto the white sandy private beach. All the beaches along this stretch are privately owned by the property owners. AS you enter the house on the 2nd level, you see a large open floor plan which includes the living room, dining room & kitchen, all with spectacular views of the Gulf. The large kitchen is fully equipped with granite counter tops. The walk-in pantry is ideal for you to stock up and cook all you meals at your home for a week. The kitchen has an island that looks into the living room. The kitchen looks out into the living room where you and watch the flat screen TV with DirecTV or watch the pelican fly up and down the coast. Off the living room and kitchen are the half bath and the laundry room equipped with full size front loading washer and dryer.

To the left is the master bedroom and bath. It has a separate tub, standing shower, double sinks and granite counter tops. The master bedroom had a large walk-in closet and a king size bed. The master has stunning views of the Gulf and a door to the porch.

On the 3rd floor, are the 2 guest bedrooms and the other two full baths. The bedroom on the right is the second master suite with its own bathroom and a queen bed. This bathroom has a shower and sink and looks out on the white sandy beach and the Gulf. From this bedroom, you can see Horn Island, only 6 miles away. At the end of the hall is 3rd full bath with a tub/shower and this bathroom is for the upstairs guest bedroom. The bedroom to the right has a queen bed and looks out onto the Gulf and the private white sandy beach.

On the private sandy beach, you can relax, take a walk, play in the water, hunt for seashells, or fish. This beach has incredible surf fishing. You can catch speckled trout, red fish or flounder. If you have kayaks, you can launch right behind the house.

I'm sorry, but we do not allow any weddings, receptions or special events.

Maximum 6 guests, including children.

Pelican Place is 90 minutes from New Orleans, 25 minutes from Biloxi/Casinos, and 20 minutes to downtown Ocean Springs or 1 minute to your own private beach area.

Peaceful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had and amazing stay at Pelican Place. You are not only on the beach, but you are right in the middle of other places to go see. We went to Dauphin Island for a day, which was only 55-60 minutes away. We spent a morning at Gulfport, MS, which was only 45 minutes away. Downtown Ocean Springs fantastic! This house is fantastic! I will and have already recommended this place to people. Thank you Max for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your nice review. Yes, It is right on the beach and right in the middle of more attractions than you can see in a week. We go to great lengths to keep the house perfect for our guests so they can have the best vacation possible. The Mississippi Gulf Coast is a fantastic place for a relaxing or busy vacation. The scenery between Ocean Springs and Bay St. Louis on the beach drive is magnificent.

Great escape

  • 5 of 5

Peaceful Pelican Place is a tranquil get away from our busy lives. My family loved it. All 3 kids and my wife said chasing and catching ghost crabs was the highlight of our family vacation. I personally loved our boat/ferry trip to ship island. It was only 30 minutes to the Biloxi Ferry and 50 minutes boat ride. The institute for marine animal studies was also close and a big hit for the kids. If there was any negative, the water was a little murky and stagnant a couple of days. All in all, we were all pleased with this amazing house and vacation spot.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking time for writing this nice review. There are many educational things for children and adults to see and do on the Mississippi Gulf Coast for nature lovers. There are party boat trips, deep sea fishing trips, and a number of sightseeing adventures to enjoy within a short drive away. You were wonderful guests and we invite you to return.

Peaceful, quiet getaway

  • 4 of 5

If you want to get away from it all this is the place for you. The house is spacious with enough room to relax during the hot days and catch up on reading or watch a movie. Was a little disappointed that there was no TV in the upstairs bedrooms. You can hear the waves of the ocean from the porch and enjoy the birds flying by continually. Great photo ops! Within driving distance of lots of eateries and shopping. A longer drive will take you into Biloxi or even New Orleans. Overall it was a great stay.

Large home, Secluded & Peaceful

  • 4 of 5

Absolutely loved the house. It was very spacious and had a comfortable open feel with a view of the ocean right out of the front door. Awesome view as well from the porch for late evening sunsets. Very short walk to the beach and water. I understand why it is called Peaceful Pelican Place because it is very peaceful, somewhat secluded with Pelicans flying over all day in each direction. My only disappointment was that the water was not an ocean blue color as I expected it to be. It was a dirty brown color and had a smell to it so we didn’t enter the water at all. Not sure if there was something going on with the water and this was not normal or what. Loved the house just not the water. Would stay here again if only the water was an ocean blue color. It would be just perfect! Thank you Max for the use of your home for our vacation.

Owner's Response: Hi Kathy, Thank you for your review. I'm happy that you had many good things to say about our beach house. The gulf water isn't as clear as the water in the Atlantic or Pacific oceans and this is the reason that the fishing is probably the best anywhere. Thousands of sportsmen choose the northern Gulf of Mexico just for their fishing expeditions and nature tours for the family. You were excellent guests and I invite you to visit again. Thanks, Max

Beautiful Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Pelican Place was a wonderful location for a very relaxing vacation. My husband and I loved sitting on the front porch, walking on the beach, and lounging seaside. This beach house is located in a very peaceful neighborhood as you will not deal with large crowds due to condos/public beaches. Ocean Springs is a nice community with plenty of excellent restaurants. We enjoyed a Swamp Tour in Slidell. Ocean Springs is close to Alabama, Florida, and Louisiana so short trips are easily worked into your schedule. This beach house was very clean with everything available that you need. Max responded in a timely manner to all my e-mails. Pelican Place comes with high recommendations as an outstanding bang for your buck beach house!

Owner's Response: Thank you Gail, Your wonderfully written review is accurate and truthful. Pelican Place is the perfect place for a relaxing vacation just a few miles away from the busy high life of the casinos and night life. It is right on the beach so you can enjoy the views and nature of the gulf coast while having easy access to many nearby points of interest. You were wonderful guests. Please visit us again! Max
