About Betsy Modglin
Resident of Gulfport MS for over 5 years while living at Le Shabby Chateau. Love the Coast and everything about it so I decided I couldn't part completely with Le Shabby Chateau so decided to turn her into a vacation rental. I love to antique, junk, restore and repurpose so that fit in perfectly.
Betsy Modglin purchased this House in 2006
Why Betsy Modglin chose Gulfport
I bought Le Shabby Chateau in September 2006 after being recruited to the area as a marketing executive. She was a bit of a wreck having just weathered Hurricane Katrina less than a year earlier. Nonetheless, the charm and love within Her walls was obvious from the moment I walked inside. I restored Her and made her my year round home until 2011 when family illness brought me back to Southern Illinois. It wasn't until June 2013 that I decided to share Le Shabby Chateau with the world. See the full story on Her Facebook page, Le Shabby Chateau.
What makes this House unique
Close to the beach! Did I tell you she was within a couple of blocks of the beach?! Close to booming downtown Gulfport, restaurants, casinos, nightlife, area attractions, New Orleans, and Mobile. The house is quaint, comfortable, and charming. The yard is quiet, private, and in a great neighborhood.

Very awesome place
The place was gorgeous and very clean. Loved the location.
Comfortable and Cozy
This sweet little house had plenty of room for our crew to either be together or apart. It's on a quiet street that doesn't get any thru traffic. The beach and a really nice park are both within a short walk. The patio outside was perfect for early morning and evening bird watching in the thick foliage that surrounds the property. I did lots of reading out there....loved it. I did have a concern about the proximity of the train track - but it wasn't really a detriment. Our grandson was fascinated and that became (next to the beach) the highlight of his day. The owner responsive and always reachable for questions. Thanks Betsy!
Just my style !
We loved our stay , AGAIN ! Just hate hurricane ran us off . Damn hurricanes. :-)
Property is exactly as described, will use again
The house was way more than expected. So cute! Close to everything.
The house was beautifully decorated and well taken care of. The patio was nice in the morning and evening. Even during rainy days the patio was enjoyed thanks to the covering. We used the BBQ grill several times as well as utilized the kitchen to cook most of our meals. The owner was very responsive and great on giving advice on local activities. Read the guestbook and take the prior vacationers advice!! Would recommend this home to anyone! Thanks again Betsy!
The house was beautiful accept the air conditioner wasn't working properly my group was never comfortable with the temperature in the house she called out to air conditioner guys and they both said the same thing she doesn't have enough insulation and she knew that that was the problem the group before us left a day early because of the uncomfortable temperature in the house
Thank you for your kind words about my home. We've put a lot of time and money into updating and decorating for the comfort of our guests. I took your comment to heart about the insulation and had a company come and check the attic. The insulation expert said the attic was perfect with the exception of one small spot. It was fixed. The AC unit is only one year old and has never fallen short of keeping our guests comfortable in the past. I think in your case the uncomfortable temperatures was due to the number of people you had in the home and the large event you hosted there on the 4th of July. You made no mention of an event nor did you ask permission to host a party. Had you brought this up I would have told you that hosting a party is absolutely against the terms of the rental agreement and would result in immediate eviction. I was also disappointed when I discovered that the kitchen floor was ruined with a large yellow stain. Again, this is unfortunate as I pride myself in making certain guests are comfortable but I will not allow my home to be used as an event center.
