Wonderful, delightful restaurants featuring Seafood, Italian, Mexican, Cajun, Coastal, Steak and other sumptuous cuisine is literally less than 5 minutes away from Le Shabby Chateau.

If you enjoy gaming, Le Shabby Chateau is 3 blocks from Island View Casino and within 20 minutes of 10 other casinos!

Attractions are plentiful and you'll definitely want to 'swim with the dolphins' while visiting the Marine Institute. Or perhaps you'd like to feed an alligator on one of the delightful swamp tours.

Regardless of what activities and sights you choose while visiting the Mississippi Gulf Coast, you'll want to come back to Le Shabby Chateau again and again. She's filled with love, serenity and charm and She's more than happy to share it with your family and friends.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Gulfport, MS, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
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.
