About NIchole Chauvin

A family of 4 looking for a weekend retreat, we purchased this house after Katrina. It received 4 feet of water and was in need of lots of TLC. The main home was completely renovated with most of the original charm left in tact (see if ou can find that 4' water line in the staining on the walls). The rear porch addition and pool were added. Most of the time this is where the whole family hangs out.

NIchole Chauvin purchased this cottage in 2007

Why NIchole Chauvin chose Mississippi

Exellent place to relax w/ the comforts of home in BSL

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (kids almost 8, and turned 11 while we were there) had a wonderful stay at the cottage and in Bay St. Louis... our first visit to Mississippi. All the necessities were provided (kitchen could use a vegetable peeler, sharp knives and cone coffee filters, though) to allow us to unwind on our spring break. The screen porch and pool were the highlights for us. Amazing to have these amenities in a vacation rental this size. The kids swam every day (a little cool in April for us adults). Beds were comfy, and it was a bonus to have the second bathroom. We walked everywhere, but our daughter requested we rent a golf cart for the day of her 11th birthday. We hit the little shops, and visited several of the restaurants nearby during our stay. Great beach just at the end of the street, and we enjoyed being there for hours at a time. We couldn't have asked for a better stay. We'd love to come back, and would recommend "The Bay My Way" to anyone.

Perfect small family retreat

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a quick escape from New Orleans and this was the perfect spot. Enjoyed the property, pool, and being within walking distance of the beach and the quaint cafes of old town BSL.

Completely worth the extra cash...

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over our Spring Break during the last week in March and had a great stay. I debated spending the extra dollars since there were other properties without the pool that were a bit cheaper, but I'm so glad I did. The soaker tub was nice after a long drive, the beds super comfy, and the decor homey and welcoming. We luckily had fabulous weather and though the pool isn't heated, my two little girls enjoyed the pool daily in the afternoons since the water warmed up nicely. The property is very much as pictured. It felt clean and well-stocked with games and activities for the kids. The outdoor porch is awesome! We ate all our meals outside and enjoyed roasting s'mores on our final night on the gas hibachi. The owner was quick to respond to my initial questions about the pool and hot water and other initial issues on arrival. The neighborhood is very safe and quiet and within walking distance to the Cypress Cafe, parks, and downtown. We drove into New Orleans twice (about 50 minutes) and I was so glad we choose to stay with the kids out of the city. Bay St. Louis felt like an imitation of a real town, very resorty, probably because it's all brand new construction and missing some of the local flavor I was hoping for, but the north side of town's grocery stores and neighborhood had a more authentic feel. The locals were very friendly. It was a great base to visit Gulfport (awesome children's museum and more authentic restaurants), area beaches, and New Orleans. We would definitely stay again!
