Very peaceful & picturesque

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice trip. We came for summer family vacation with our 2 daughters ages 16 & 19. The house had all the comforts of home including a Keurig & wine glasses. Mom's favorites! Coffee & wine. The streets was pretty peaceful & the beach had some beautiful sunsets! Watch out for golf carts & unleashed dogs. There's a lot of both in the neighborhood. We had 1 issue the with the smoke detector batteries deciding to die at 1:30am in the guest bedroom. Overall nice place to stay & the owners are extremely nice. I would also suggest another AC unit for upstairs. It gets a little warm up there.

Life in paradise

  • 5 of 5

It was wonderful staying in such a beautiful house. The short walk to the little beach was heaven drinking coffee each morning watching the sunrise. And the sunset in the evenings. Easy drive to get to town for shopping or fishing. We completely enjoyed our stay and would definitely come back.

Awesome, as always!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time in the octagon house! This was our third stay and we love this little home! It's on a quiet street and at the end of the street is a private beach on the bay. It's close to so many good restaurants and to everything you need or would want to do. Grateful for this treasure!

Our boys ages 2 and 5 years loved the private beach. They spent hours catching crabs in nets.

The sunrise was stunning every morning from the master bedroom.

The house had every possible kitchen appliance you could need. The washer and dryer were so helpful!

Zero Complaints and zero things we would change!

Thank you for allowing us to stay and play and relax!

Peace on the Bay

  • 5 of 5

What a great time we had celebrating my birthday and visiting my sister and her husband after many years. The beach is quiet and visible from the house and it is a very tranquil home near the end of a quiet street. Comfortable beds and linens and stocked so that if like us you don't want to run around you can fish and eat them there or stop by the store and the local fish market on the way in and not have to leave. There are stairs going up to the house and another set up to the bedrooms but they are doable for most. Plenty of room for all to spread out and not be on top of each other and even an outdoor shower! Take some time at the Octagon House and forget about your cares for awhile! Candice and Michael are great hosts! Saved to our Homeaway favorites! John and Cathy Penney Meridian MS
