About the property

Cottage Style Gulf Front House

Enjoy the beautiful Gulf and amazing Sunsets 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.

Great place to stay on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in lots of vacation rental homes, both through VRBO and individual real estate agents, and Pelican Place was hands down the best. The home is absolutely beautiful and from the moment you walk in the door, you are in love with it. Everything was included, and Max was incredibly responsive to all requests. It was a great location from which to enjoy small day trips, but the best part of the house is the house itself. Right on the beach, and the great porch meant we could just sit out and enjoy the breeze, listen to the ocean, and relax at any point. The beds were super comfortable, the house was very clean, the decor was amazing, and the touches they have included to make your stay as enjoyable as possible are without peer. Rent this house .... we certainly hope to do so again!!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you Denise for your review of Pelican Place. We make your stay at the beach house a top priority. The house is designed to take advantage of the view from every room. It is equipped with two central a/c units for your individual comfort requirements. We selected the furniture for your best comfort along with lots of kitchen items for the times you may want to eat at your new home. The wrap around porch is designed for enjoying the view of the beach, the water, and the beautiful Horn Island with the sea birds, boats, and sometimes the dolphins feeding and playing just off the beach. This is the perfect place to get away from the busy life on the Biloxi strip yet close enough for you to go there when desired. The Mississippi Gulf Coast is a truly beautiful place and we welcome visitors to see for themselves. Thanks, Max

Beautiful home and a very quiet, private beach. Perfect for families not looking for lots of noise!!

  • 5 of 5

Took my family with 2 small children on vacation in July and would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a quiet, private beach with a beautiful and wonderful home. The owner was wonderful to work with and even suggested a great sea food restaurant for us to try!! The food was delicious and was only a 20 minute drive from the house!! Perfect location and not far from any stores or tourist locations. Took us approximately 25 minutes to get to Biloxi and 45 minutes to get to the USS Alabama Battleship which is also a definite must see!!! We will definitely be going back in the future!

Owner's Response: Thank you Tamara, for your beautiful and accurate review. I am happy that you experienced some of the Mississippi gulf coast's attractions and plan to definitely visit us again. There is much more to see and do. We have so much for everyone....the night life in Biloxi, the beautiful scenery along Highway 90, eco tours, and nature for the children and adults. New Orleans and Mobile are nearby and offer much to see and close enough to visit and return the same day. We are eagerly waiting for your return trip. Thanks, Max

Had a wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at Pelican Place. This is our second time visiting and can't wait to go back. Our kids had a great time finding Hermit Crabs, watching the dolphins and having the fish jump all around them. If you are looking for a relaxing vacation this is the place for you.

All in all a good place

  • 5 of 5

House was great verry clean we had a problem with the television but it was repaired as soon as possible. There was a storm before we arrived and the area had 14 inches of rain. So I will say that is why the grass was tall and not cut for the first 4 days of our stay and there was a lot of trash on the beach. We picked up the light bulbs, pipes and boards with nails off the beach but after our 4th day there was another storm and we were cleaning the beach again. The owners had no control over the weather. All in all a good stay

Owner's Response: Hi Kevin, Thank you for staying with us at Pelican Place. As always, I place my guests first by keeping the house as clean and perfect as possible. The storms are just a part of nature that we expect occasionally. I apologize for the trash washing up onto the beach. It accumulates on all beaches after a storm and is unfortunate. We property owners of the private beach gather and clean the beach to keep it clean and beautiful for us and our guests. You were wonderful guests and we hope you will visit with us again. Thanks, Max
