About the property

Large 4 Bdrm, 3 1/2 Bath & Dorm room Perfect For Families, Couples & Girl Trips!

This is it! No need to look further. This beautiful 2,650 sq ft home with its wide, covered front porch presents spectacular, unobstructed views of Bay St. Louis. And, there's lots of gathering room beneath the house. Great family home literally steps from the bay and just a few minutes from calming beaches.

Comfortably sleeps 12. Four bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths, 4-bed dorm room and trundle bed. Two roomy dens, one up and one down. Ideal for 2 families, 4 couples or a girls' getaway. Downstairs master has a queen w/private bathroom, tub & shower. Upstairs 2nd bedroom has a queen with private bathroom and shower. There's a queen in the 3rd bedroom. Two twins are in the 4th bedroom. Four twins & a trundle bed fill out the dorm room. The 3rd bathroom has shower/tub.

An impressive 150' private pier offers access to all the water activities you can dream of: crabbing, fishing, boating (boat launch less than 1 mile away and a full-service marina 3 miles away in town) swimming or soaking up the sun on the lower deck. Relax while the kids swim. Leave your boat moored next to the pier during the day, then either pick it up or tie it to an anchored mooring buoy overnight.

Pontoon boats are available for rent from Bay Boat Rentals, LLC at the BSL marina. Call 228-216-5757 for more information.

Fat blue crabs and a variety of gulf fish are yours for the taking. For more adventure, pull your little waterbugs in a tube across the bay or up the Jourdan or Wolf rivers. Casually cruise along Bayou Mallini or cast off into open waters for a day trip to Cat or Ship Island, Gulfport or Biloxi. So many choices!

The house is ideal for a long weekend/week getaway from New Orleans, about one hour's drive. Snowbirds will also love it for the week or longer. The beckoning beaches of Waveland, Pass Christian, Long Beach, Gulfport and Biloxi are a short drive away.

Like to golf, or roll the dice while dining out and enjoying live entertainment? Head to Hollywood Casino and its Bridges Golf Course, an 18-hole Arnold Palmer design that's practically in your backyard. A three-minute drive or one-mile walk.

The popular city of Bay St. Louis, with its small-town feel, welcoming locals, art-inspired shopping, consistently great food and lively entertainment is just up the road. Town is less than a 10-minute drive, or about a three-mile bike ride from the house along the beach road. Bring bikes to ride to the marina and restaurants, or over the Bay Bridge for a breathtaking view!!

Because of its central location, vacationers can take a variety of day trips - New Orleans, Diamondhead, Pass Christian, Long Beach, Gulfport, Biloxi, Ocean Springs - and be back in time to enjoy a stunning sunset from the porch or pier.

The Bay Front Favorite house is just 23 miles from Gulfport/Biloxi airport and 71 miles from the New Orleans International Airport in Kenner, La.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This rental property was ideal for an extended weekend of rest and relaxation for the entire family. While there were plenty of activities to experience in the surrounding areas, we found ourselves spending more time at the property because of the comfort created from the home's architecture. The over sized porch overlooking the bay is a great place to rock the grand babies while feeling the cool breeze and listening to the birds, wind, and water. The porch is just a neat place to hang out and to enjoy meals on its fun picnic table. This property was a great place to enjoy some peace and quiet and worthy of repeat visits.

Thanks again Andrea!

Beautiful home with nearby quiet beaches

  • 5 of 5

We had our four adult children, their spouses and two grandchildren with us for Spring Break. The home was very comfortable and well stocked with the necessary kitchen “tools” for our family meals. The beach is quiet and only a few minutes away. It is a fairly shallow beach area so that you can walk out 100yds and only be waist deep. Great for kids (but no boogie boards). Very relaxing and beautiful area. We will be back!

We had a great time. Went to New Orleans one night. Not a bad drive. The other nights we stayed close. We played golf every day. The golf courses were close enough. and in good

shape. We hope to come back next year.

Renters beware

  • 1 of 5

This property was very beautiful and the stay was quite nice, however I thought it was very peculiar, after leaving the house in great condition the owners said that things was wrong that we didn't even use. Then Stop returning my calls and kept my security deposit. I've stayed in a lot of different rental properties with my family and . And never have this ever happened to me. To have a great vacation and it ends on a sour note was very concerning to me.. Is this the way that they do business. We was told that we unhooked the garbage disposal and took apart and then try to put it back together. They said when water was running smoke came from the sink and that the garbage disposal wasn't plugged up . We're on were on vacation not trying to rebuild the house. So renters beware. I would not recommend this property solely based upon they want to keep your deposit why don't they just charge you more for the house

Owner's Response: I communicated with this traveler by phone, text and email. When asked over the phone for an explanation as to how the damage had occurred during her stay, the traveler denied the damage saying she and her party had no knowledge of it. Upon further investigation, I found this explanation implausible and held the traveler responsible. The costs of damage exceeded the $350 damage deposit. I fail to see how withholding the damage deposit was a money-making proposition. In addition to the damage, the traveler left the house unlocked and the iron plugged in and turned on, not exactly "leaving the house in great condition", as she stated. Our property has received all five-star reviews, with the exception of a single four-star review. Our positive reviews speak volumes about how we do business and how we treat our travelers.

Hope to come back!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property. Has everything you might need. Only wish I had had more time there--since we had dinner commitments all three evenings we were there, we hardly used the very well equipped kitchen. Would love to come back when the weather was warmer to enjoy the pier, etc. Wonderful owner to work with, too.

One happy family

  • 5 of 5

Even short periods of rain and cooler weather did not dampen our family's (4 yrs - 78 yrs) recent visit to the Gulf coast; always something to do and experience from a remarkable "home plate". The house more than filled our expectations and provided many pleasant memories (even with the snow and sub-freezing temps on return to Portland, ME (leaving GPT at 78 deg.).

Thank you Andrea.

Owner's Response: I like the "home plate" remark! Yes, our vacation home is in a great location to take advantage of the many offerings along the MS Gulf Coast. I'm happy to hear that your family was able to log some great memories! Stay warm up there, and come back down when you get the coastal blues.

Very Impressive

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for a long weekend as a central place to celebrate my wife's 50th birthday and could not have done better. The house is set up perfectly for entertaining. The interior is modern, yet extremely comfortable and sleeps many folks with ease. We spent most of the time underneath the house. This space is perfect for large get-togethers. The breeze off the Bay keeps it comfortable at all times. The pier is very nice for fishing or watching the pleasure craft pass. Everyone that celebrated the event commented on what a nice place it was. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a great place to spend time with family and friends. It is located within a 5 minute drive to the local grocery store, 2 minutes to the boat launch and 5 minutes to the bars on the Bay. Very nice and very convenient.
