Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

After a hellish work week, my husband and I decided to play hooky one Friday and skip town to get away. Found Peggy's place on the fly and could not believe the price. The shared space is really an apartment located in the bottom half of the house. It has a private entrance that opens up to a wonderful (and private) patio area and pool. it really is beautiful and the backyard is well maintained and lush. We completely loved it. A lovely shower that has great water pressure and nice kitchen to boot. Also cable! Not that we were indoors much but it was nice to have it. There's a nearby casino and the beach is the next two streets up! We had breakfast each morning at Harborview Café in Long Beach, about 7 minutes away and we hung out at night in Bay St. Louis because it was "Pirate Day in the Bay" all weekend...which was just a hoot! We also ate dinner at Bacchus one evening which was pretty good. A perfect get away.

A treasure to behold

  • 5 of 5

My lovely wife and I spent a few days in the area and we were very pleased with our arrangements. Peggy , the owner is most kind and her place is beautiful,clean and well taken care of. We recommend anyone who doesn't care for the traditional hotel, you won't be disappointed.

cozy, convenent location

  • 5 of 5

Very nice place. We stayed for our anniversary. It is a shared place with the owner upstairs. We hardly knew she was there though. As nice as pictured. Loved the pool and hot tub. Close by everything. Room was very clean.

Anniversary Weekend

  • 5 of 5

I could not be happier! It was our 23rd Anniversary and we have been to many places, but this was by far the most relaxing !!!! Beats the heck out of staying in a hotel ! Much more room. You cannot beat the price for what you get. The landscape is beautiful. It was so quiet being a few blocks off the beach I was amazed. You can see the ocean (peek-a-boo view) that was a plus. My husband loved it. He said he didn't think I could top this one. So my reply, well we will do this every year. We knew it would be to cold for the pool, but just looking at it is relaxing. Hot tub is great. We saw Peggy when we checked in she is very cheerful and sweet. Showed us around, gave us the key, and was on her way. We did not see her the rest of the weekend, but i suspect she is a lot of fun to be around. We only heard her leaving one time it was no problem for us sharing her house with her. Ia m already telling everyone about this little gem ! Thanks Peggy for a great anniversary !!!!

Cozy Cottage, convenient location

  • 5 of 5

Th property was nice, very close to the beach, casino, and nice downtown area. We were comfortable there, but you can hear what the upstairs owner is doing; and therefore she can hear you. Not a big deal for us because most hotels are this way too. Overall, the place was very nice, and a convenient location. If you are in the area, make sure to get the biscuits or beignets at Triplett-Day Drug Co.

Perfect place for a honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5

We loved it the moment we arrived, we chose this bungalow as our honeymoon getaway. perfect place for spending all day doing nothing. Swimming at night, relaxing in the hottub or just sitting on the covered in patio and taking in the peaceful back yard. We have recommended the bungalow to several friends (they tried to make reservations but Peggy was booked) The owner was friendly and hardly seemed to be home. Definitely will be returning to our own little love shack.
