About the owner: I have lived on this property since early 1980's. I lived and trained in the Jackson, Mississippi area. I graduated a program and wanted to move away from home and parents, so after visiting some friends in this area, I decided it was the place for me. I met and married my husband and we lived in the cottage for 15+ years. We did some remodels, to move in and take care of the aunt that lived in the primary home on the property. This wonderful woman passed away in 1997 leaving the properties to my husband and me. My husband passed away in 2001. For many years a friend stayed in the cottage, keeping with the beach living. Hurricane Katrina came and a lot of things changed. I was blessed that there was minimal damage to my home and the cottage. The bluff, that my property is located on is one of the highest points between Apalachicola Bay, Florida and Galveston Bay, Texas. I never believed that fact prior to Hurricane Katrina, but have since become a confirmed believer. For years, the cottage was just used when friends or family came to visit. I am now a retired medical professional and have decided to try sharing my beautiful beach way of life with others.
Why the Owner Chose Bay Saint Louis, MS, USA:
One day, as I was looking out the kitchen window of the cottage, towards the back wall of the primary dwelling, I realized, I had seen this home and all the landscaping before. I had dreamed of this place many times since I was a young girl. Deja' Vu ...well I believe. I had such a feeling of peace. I don't know what the future holds, but I do know, at this time in my life, I am exactly where I am supposed to be.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The town and all the interesting activities are wonderful. There has been an increase in arts, shopping, and fun things to do but the thing that draws me to this area the most is...the PEOPLE. They are the friendliest I have ever run into. I have made so many friends over the years. Friends and family that come to visit have made the same discovery. People smile or speak to you as you walk down the street. Join us in 'A Place Apart'.
