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.

Charming place, super clean and airy. Love the art work. Well appointed with everything you could possibly need/want. Lovely neighborhood and just a hop, skip and a jump from the beach. Yeah!

Perfect Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

The Cottage was perfect. Clean, comfortable, close to the beach, restaurants, shops and bars. It was beautiful inside and out. We loved being so close to the beach. Bay St. Louis is a sleepy little town about to wake up. We loved the classic car meets, the boats and the live music in Old Town.

Thank you for a wonderful visit. We will definitely be back!

The Cottage is delightful!

  • 5 of 5

Our two week stay was just what we hoped for! A laid back real vacation. We usually come back from traveling more tired than when we left home. But that's the difference between traveling and vacations. The town is charming with cute shops and lots of good restaurants but we also enjoyed cooking dinners ourselves. My husband was taken by all the fishermen at the dock so he bought some tackle and a license and had a great time trying to figure it all out. He snagged a lot of oysters that he brought home to eat. And is still telling about the really BIG fish that got away. I loved taking my kite and book to the beach for a few hours every day. We did do a couple of side trips but mainly focused on hanging around the neighborhood to relax. A couple of comments. As vacation rental owners in Wisconsin, ourselves, we did think it unusual to provide our own toilet paper and paper towels. Also would recommend getting rid of the magnetic strips for those beautiful sharp knives. DANGEROUS!! The magnets are not strong enough and the knives never stayed in place. We have purchased some great magnetic knife holders from Ikea that are very strong and even hold heavy cleavers. They aren't expensive and much safer. Just a suggestion.

I would recommend this cute little place to anyone. We loved it and hope to return again.

Oh! Almost forgot about the internet issue. For the last week, we were without wifi through no fault of the owner. Just not good service. But we took it as a good omen that perhaps we should be vacationing from the electronics as well.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking your time to write a review. Good idea for the knife holder and I will bring some of those from my favorite store, Ikea! Yes, there was issues with our internet provider and if we had been there when the technician was it would have been sorted out quicker, but since we had no idea they were at the house we missed the opportunity to see the issue through. We do ask that our guests not speak to the service providers and leave that up to us. I am happy you enjoyed your stay and our lovely town!

Absolutely Loved It

  • 5 of 5

I can't say the pictures don't do it justice because they are really accurate, but they don't figure in the feeling when you walk in the door, like you just came home. It is such a perfect size cottage for one or two people and is really bigger than it looks from the outside because it's so well designed. I spent 6 weeks here and never regretted it for a moment. So close and convenient to everything and you don't want for anything because it's got it all. I wouldn't hesitate to rent this one again and again. The owners were wonderful too and so easily available for questions. Absolutely Loved It.

Excellent location and property

  • 5 of 5

Great location to the beach. Only a 5 minute walk. Perfect for two people. Very clean and had everything we needed for our short weekend stay. Great little community and neighborhood where the house is located. We felt safe the entire time we were there. I will definitely check back for availability during my next trip to BSL.

A lovely stay in a quiet beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

We came to Bay St. Louis to escape winter's grip. The cabin is just right for two. There was a lovely stretch of beach 100 yards from our door, and you can walk for more than a mile along the shoreline with ease. The cottage's surrounding area is very quiet, but we could easily walk to Old Town where most of the bars and restaurants are. If you want something more upscale, both Biloxi and the NOLA French Quarter are less than an hour away. The cottage was clean and well taken care of, and our one issue, Cable TV knocked out by a storm, was attended to promptly. This is a great place to enjoy the Gulf Shore.
