Perfect Pool and Beach

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. The apartment is comfortable and cozy. Kitchen is great. The pool is great! Lots of outdoor space for relaxing. Communication with owner couldn't have been better. I goofed up remote on TV and texted the problem. She sent someone over very quickly and all was corrected. Bay St. Louis is a great little town, lots of shops and resturants but the beach is absolutely the best!!

Great House, wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 1 week in this beautiful home. We had everything we needed. The house was wonderful, from the furnishings to the comfy bed and everything you could need in the kitchen. The towels were fluffy and plentiful. The beach towels in the closet were a nice surprise.The owner was accommodating and made sure everything was taken care of. The town was a pleasant surprise. We are actually thinking of retiring here. The people were so friendly, the neighborhood was safe. The "downtown" area had many restaurants and bars. We ate everywhere and shopped and shopped. The stores were interesting and eclectic. The food and alcohol prices were reasonable. The gas was cheap in Mississippi too. Can't say enough great things about this place. You will not be disappointed.

Wonderful, cozy place!

  • 5 of 5

This place was tucked into a very private yard with a beautiful pool area. The main house was very pretty, however we stayed in the attached guest quarters which had several stairs to walk up to get to it. We never encountered the people in the main house. Everything was very nice! It was perfect for 2 people! Nice little open kitchen, dining area and living room with a private bedroom with a few steps going up to a nice bathroom Would recommend for a nice quiet , private week or weekend getaway!!! Thanks to the owners!!! They were easy to deal with! Love the Bay! Beautiful town and Kind people!!!!

Comfy Cozy Retreat

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay in Bay St. Louis and this property was comfortable, charming, and convenient. Bike rides to the beach, popcorn and a movie when the rain came in. The pool was great for a quick dip to rinse off the Gulf. The neighborhood is quiet and friendly, but just a couple of minutes from lovely downtown. Mary Ellen was wonderful to deal with and we couldn't be happier with our stay. Highly recommend it!
