Why Kimberly or Hal Vaughan chose Ocean Springs
We have owned a summer home on Belle Fontaine Beach since 1961 and lived here permanently since 1980. We have two homes side by side and after our youngest daughter left for Ole Miss we decided to live in the smaller home. We live next door to rental in the small Pink House and renting our Big Green Mini Mansion. We are available for any questions or problems and happy to help with needs such as activities, directions, restaurants etc. Otherwise we RESPECT YOUR TOTAL PRIVACY! If you have children, just let us know and we'll make sure our crab traps are baited and hopefully full of crabs! Remember to add chicken to your grocery list to keep traps baited and crabs fed. Interested in crabbing or fishing from our pier? Let us know and we'll do our best to show you how to catch crabs, speck, flounder and red fish! Night time is the best time to fish. Crabbing during the day.
What makes this House unique
Our View is Fabulous! Either Sunrise or Sunset, both are outstanding! Our home has 12' ceilings and all rooms are large and open, with many windows giving you the look, the feel and the smell of the Mississippi Gulf Coast something we have loved our entire life. While sitting on our porch you can see Horn Island, Round Island, Dolphins/Porpoises almost every day, what a sight! Shrimp Boats, Pelicans, Eagles, Egrets, Sandhill Cranes, Mullet Jumping and now and then we have a deer or a fox on the beach, you never know!

Wonderful hosts, wonderful house
What a great week! The house was exceptional in cleanliness and how well appointed it was. We had more than enough of everything from towels to plates to cooking utensils. The kids enjoyed the pool in spite of the uncooperative weather and I can’t say enough about how great Hal and Kim are as hosts. Thanks for a fabulous visit!
Beautiful home, great hosts!
We rented Dolphindale for a month and shared our time with visiting friends. Kimberly was readily available and helpful during the time ahead of our arrival. The house and amenities were just as beautiful as described and pictured. We appreciated Hal's answering every request from tweaking the hot tub to providing a step stool. The kitchen was the best equipped ever; 4 weeks of cooking and all we missed having were some measuring spoons and a small sauce pan. The great beds and fine bed linens were enjoyed by all. We used the hot tub almost every evening - even had several plunges into the pool. I'm pretty sure we used every inch of space and every feature Dolphindale offers. Thank you so much for a great month and many memories to treasure.
Best getaway ever
Very lovely home, amazing views, and plenty to do. I would recommend this home to everyone. Hal and Kimberly were very nice and helpful. Hopefully we can get back there one day.
Very peaceful. Wonderful view.
Wonderful place for vacationing!
Perfect family vacation home!
They made us feel at home from the moment we arrived. This is the second time we have been and we plan on having this be an annual event!
We had a great stay!! The house is lovely and quiet. The owners are fantastic and dedicated to providing amazing service. There was plenty to do and our kids had a blast. Can’t wait to stay here again.
