Great place for a weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were looking for something a little different for a quick weekend. We found it here! The guest quarters was well appointed and comfortable, and the pool was lovely. The owners were accomodating and pleasant, very easy to deal with. Bay St. Louis is a neat little town with interesting sites and nice restaurants. We spent a day in New Orleans, only an hour's drive away. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

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.

The owners return to the Gulf Coast regularly for rest and relaxation. They are pleased to have the opportunity to restore and preserve this historical 100 year old cottage, 'La Petite Cachette' (Little Nook). They love their home and want to share this restored piece of coastal history.

What makes this cottage unique

This Creole home is one of the few 'Biloxi Cottages' to survive after Katrina.The typical 'Biloxi Cottage' is a locally popular vernacular house that is typified by a gable roof, undercut gallery, and four bay facade with doors in two central bays.

'La Petite Cachette' is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This is a special property that seamlessly blends the history of a past lifestyle with the modern luxury of today. The 'barge board' bookshelves and hardwood floors are incorporated with the modern luxury of the private pool, WIFI, and flatscreens.
