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.

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.

Pelican Place is perfect

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home! It was everything we hoped for-it was perfect! The property is well maintained, the beach was great to explore, and the location couldn't be better. The living room was spacious and allowed our family to spend quality time together comfortably. The views out of all the windows was incredible. Biloxi, Gulfport, and even New Orleans were easy trips to make from here. We love this area and hope to return again someday. We highly recommend this property to others.

Owner's Response: Thank you for this very accurate review. We looked far and wide to find a location that had a quiet and peaceful setting while in close proximity to all the attractions that the Mississippi Gulf Coast has to offer. We have beautiful white sand beaches, barrier islands, live oak trees, palms and other coastal plants. The fishing is close to being the best on the planet and the night life is excellent with great seafood and entertainment. The house is designed to accommodate the guests with everything they need and with views from every room. All you need to bring is your clothes. Please visit us again and I will do everything I can to ensure that you have a great vacation.

Tranquil seclusion

  • 5 of 5

This is exactly what we were looking for! If you're looking for seclusion from crowds and tourists this is the place for you. The house was exactly as pictured and described! We have two boys ages 9 and 13 who enjoyed it just as much! We took trips to nearby Dauphin Island a few days during the week and traveled to Biloxi to see some historic landmarks as well. Nearby front beach and downtown Ocean Springs were nice little outings as well. If you're looking for a gym nearby, we used Beau Vie Fitness in Ocean Springs. They were very sweet and the gym was never crowded. Thank you so very much to Max and Linda for allowing us to borrow your home, and for always being just an email away!!!

Very large house with beach access, but not located conveniently.

  • 2 of 5

Wish we had been made aware up front and clearly that the nearest town of Ocean Springs was 25 minutes driving time from the house. The house was set up as a rental without thoughtfulness in function. There was no light or end tables by the bedsides, broken clocks, clumsy furniture arrangement in living room. All of the beach chairs were broken or rusted. The owners should spend a weekend in that house themselves and make the place more comfortable and usable. We made the best of the situation and cooked dinner in each night so we didn't have a long, very dark road to travel at night if we wanted to dine in town.

Owner's Response: Wait a minute, Barbara I don't feel that you were fair with me in describing my beach house. The beach is located conveniently to the the house. It is part of the property and is only about 200 feet away. The city limits of Ocean Springs is about 4 miles away. I stayed at the house directly after you left and didn't see what you described. There are end tables in the bedrooms. There were no broken clocks. Only one needed a battery and there were spares in the end table. The furniture was placed in the house new about 3 years ago and still looks new. You had 6 new beach chairs. All my previous guests were very happy and some return every year. Pelican Place had a 5 star guest approval rating until you came. I ask my future guests to read the past reviews and then form your opinion. Thanks, Max

Relaxing Escape at Pelican Place

  • 5 of 5

Pelican Place is a peaceful and relaxing place to stay for your vacation. Beautiful views to the beach and a quiet setting. The beach is right there, and provides a peaceful stroll in the morning and evening. The location is great for access to Biloxi (less than 30 minutes), Mobile (less than an hour), National Seashore park (minutes away)--even easy access to the New Orleans airport. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you need, and we even found seasonings in the pantry (as well as laundry detergent).

The house is well maintained, and rooms are all very nice sized and comfortable. Max and Linda are fabulous hosts, with great communication, who want to ensure that your stay is perfect.

Thank you for the memorable experience!

Fantastic Property!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for what we were looking for out of our trip to Ocean Springs. It was well maintained and clean and had all the modern conveniences we required. The location is nice and secluded and the neighbors aren't too close. Access to the beach is easy and only maybe 100 feet from the front of the house which was perfect for taking quiet walks. I will mention that you will want to make other arrangements for high speed internet (which we did) because the house internet is slow. I will definitely want stay at Pelican Place again on my next trip to Ocean Springs. Thanks for everything Max & Linda.

Great family destination!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Pelican Place. It was the perfect getaway for our family. The house was well-maintained and spacious with a great layout, and the location enabled us to have an easy drive to places like Biloxi, the Infinity Science Center near the Louisiana border and even to New Orleans. The weather was also cooperative enough that we could spend plenty of time on the beach and wade into the Gulf. Max and Linda were very friendly and accommodating, and we would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a fun, relaxing vacation spot!
