Great house... Great view... family had a wonderful time!!
Family and friends loved house and beach veiw and back deck bayou view... Amazing weekend great location... family from Florida... mobile ala..and Ms stop bye and visit ..... location and house kid friendly and close enough for other to go to casino.... Realtor very friendly and nice...Best weekender family has had!!!
Surf side 1 was a perfect place for a family vacation. Plenty of room and the beach is beautiful.
We had a great time at surf side 1 in ocean springs. The home is spacious and stocked with everything you need. We loved watching all the pelicans fly over the beach.
House and location are amazing!!!! Not a great place if you are planning on swimmming though.
Couldn’t ask for a better house and location! So relaxing and peaceful.... the beach on the other hand is not what we were hoping for. Water was very dirty.. there were many wooden post under the water that were only visible when the tide was low that made it dangerous for our children to swim. Overall we had a great time but if swimming would be a deal breaker this is not your place.
Gorgeous location, awesome house
We had a great time. The house did not disappoint. Even more beautiful than the pictures. All the beds are comfy, though the full size beds are not really big enough for 2 grown people. We loved the private beach for swimming and fishing. Easy drive to Biloxi. Highly recommend this property!
Awesome beach house!
We chose this house for a weeklong stay over the 4th of July along with two other couples. We wanted to lounge on the beach and relax away from the crowds and boy did this place deliver! We had the beach to ourselves almost every day and even we weren't the only ones there, there were just a couple other folks laying out in the sun a few hundred feet away.
The house itself was spectacular with plenty of open space for us all to gather. The furnishings are extremely nice and the beds are super comfortable! We all got some great nights sleep and were able to really unwind. The kitchen was stocked with all sorts of items which has not always been our experience. The washer and dryer allowed us to keep up with towels and dirty laundry. We brought our own detergent, but there was a small quantity provided in case we hadn't. The same with the dishwasher, which was super quiet!
A gas grill is provided for cookouts and it is a good size. I mostly grill with charcoal but I was just happy to have a grill at all since I was planning on smoking some ribs for the 4th. It is a 3-burner grill and I had plenty of room to do 3 racks of baby back ribs along with a foil pouch to hold wood chips for adding smoke. After using the grill two times before to grill steaks and chicken, there was still enough fuel for the 5-hour cook of the ribs. It helped that there was only one burner being used on low heat. But even if we had run out, Sue said we could do a propane tank exchange at the local store and she would reimburse us the cost. Glad we didn't need to do that, but it was nice to have that reassurance!
The only things we found a bit unusual were small in nature. The master bathroom does not have any towel racks so towels need to be folded and placed on the sink between uses. The freezer only had racks at the bottom and top with a lot of blank space in the middle. We didn't have a lot there so it wasn't a big deal. And the bottom half of the interior staircase leading outside was not finished like the rest. Nothing major, just more of an observation since the rest of the house is finished nicely.
Overall, we were extremely happy with our stay. It fit the bill for everything we were looking for. I would not hesitate to book this property again. Sue is very easy to work with and was available anytime we had questions both before and during the trip.
The home was just as advertised. Amazing well stocked kitchen, and great master bath. Spacious house with room for everyone. We sat on the balcony every morning and evening to listen to the surf and watch the pelicans. Evening hermit crab walk on the beach with the kids was fun. Quiet area away from it all. Kids played in the sand and surf daily.
The beach is private, not "maintained." Lots of surf fishing - only thing of size were hard heads. (small croaker, whiting, and one small redfish) Spent some time in "downtown" Ocean Springs, adorable little town. Great public beach. Had a pedicure at the little place near the house - great service.
Did have a miscommunication upon check in but it was rectified immediately to our complete satisfaction.
Would absolutely go back and stay again. If you like the quiet ocean life, stock the house with groceries and never leave.
Ocean Springs is an artist community. Be sure to visit the Walter Anderson Museum and the Mary C. O'Keefe Cultural Center located downtown. There are wonderful shops, great restaurants, local theater, Saturday fresh market and much more.
