About Cat

Our father designed and built 'The Cottage' and made it his home. Our Aunt and Uncle soon followed and now we are the next generation. We vacationed as children on the Mississippi Gulf Coast and as adults love the small town atmosphere and all the friends our families have made.

What makes this house unique

The proximity to the beach, great restaurants and adult entertainment with the casinos so close by. Being able to get to New Orleans in 40 minutes is fantastic. We are avid fishermen/women and love spending time on the fishing pier if nothing else than to catch up with the local fellows and see what they landed.

Quaint cottage with beach atmosphere, one block from the beach. Fully equipped kitchen.

  • 5 of 5

The Cottage is a great place for a couple to relax. Fix a drink and enjoy the rocking chairs on the front porch. Walk to the beach, and if your experience is like ours, you might be all alone there too. The restaurants in town are fun, and we especially enjoyed TBT.

There's probably lots more to say , but the bottom line is that The Cottage is everything that we hoped for and all that was promised.

We will be back.

Adorable Cottage in Quaint Town

  • 5 of 5

I can't wait to get back to this adorable cottage. It was perfect for just little ole me spending a few days in tiny and quaint Bay St. Louis. Catherine, the co-owner, was extremely responsive, friendly and helpful. The Bloody Mary suggestion at the Blind Tiger was spot on. The cottage was perfect. My only critique is that the cottage wasn't as clean as I would have preferred. The fridge needed a wipe down and the house an overall dusting. But, I'm also a neat freak so take that into consideration. Besides that everything was lovely. No problems with the wifi, air conditioning, etc. The bed was very comfy, and I appreciated the use of beach chair/umbrella. The cottage is very close to a public beach and a three minute drive to Main Street. Can't say enough great things about my experience at the cottage.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I bet I am more of a neat freak than you!! I always find something else that needs to be cleaned each time I am at the house. Thank you for the heads up as I can now.pass on your words to our cleaning staff. Sometimes I think they feel I am too picky and it will be nice for them to read it from someone else!

Great little house!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend had a brief break before starting a new job so we wanted to go spend a few days relaxing on the beach while we had the chance and this place was perfect. It is well supplied, clean, comfortable, an easy walk to the fun little downtown area, and very close to the beach. It is an easy 75 minute drive from our apartment Uptown in New Orleans, and is a bargain for all you get. The beach is great too, it was uncrowded, the water was warm and very calm. Though the house is so very close that a person could easily walk back to it to use the restroom, there is a nice public restroom on the beach that you would pass right by in walking the 100 yards between the house and the water's edge. We'll definitely be back.

Well maintained quant house

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying here, the property is well maintained with all the amenities we where looking for. It is within walking distance to down town which has lots of shops and restaurants to choose from. The beach is only a couple of houses down. We would definitely stay here again.

Cute cottage!!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our extended weekend at the Cottage! The cottage is well kept and clean. It's just a few blocks from the beach and within walking distance of old town which is amazing. The Blind Tiger, Trappani's and Mockingbird Cafe were our favorite local restaurants! Highly recommended! Will be back for sure!

Cute Cozy Cottage

  • 4 of 5

We loved the house and the location. The house was located close to all the things the Bay had to offer. Just the right size for 2 people. There was just one thing that concerned us. We were to wash, dry and fold towels before leaving. The wash and dry sheets. Usually the sheets and towels are left in the washer or a designated place for the cleaning crew to ready the rental for the next occupant. We felt a bit uncomfortable having to trust that the guest before us did their job.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your observation regarding check out procedures. Our cleaning crew has many times from 12 pm to 3 pm to turn the house for the next guest on the same day. So, to make it that the departing guests can leisurely depart (by noon) and not have the depart by 10 am, we ask that you start the towels or do them the night before. The laundry takes the most time and I can assure you that we check to make sure the towels are clean and if not, the guests hear from me! This is also the reason all the towels are white. It is very easy to see when they have not been done:) We also ask you to turn on the dishwasher before you depart so that we can have the dishes cleaned for the next guest and put away before they arrive. Thank you again for your observation and I will do better in explain the Why's of our check out procedures. If you rent from us again, please don't hesitate to call us with any concerns. We are so happy you enjoyed BSL! Cat
