Our Island House is at the end of a private beach peninsula offering various views of the gulf, river side, lighted fishing dock & surrounding area. Here you won’t deal with traffic or a crowded beach. To the west, after watching the breathtaking coral sunsets over the water you can see the glistening lights of the gulf coast casinos. The front balcony faces the beach with additional views of the gulf to the west. From our large back balcony you can enjoy the view of our fishing dock, fire pit seating area and surrounding marsh. The kitchen has a double oven, 6 burner gas stove with griddle and a double decker dishwasher. We also have a built in water purification system. The back balcony runs the entire length of the house. On one side of the back balcony is a screened in porch with a large outdoor dining table. The hot tub is at the other end of the balcony just outside of the master bedroom. We have a large master suite with a huge adjoining bathroom including a Jacuzzi tub, oversize glass shower, double sinks and private toilet. The crews quarters has 2 sets of “hanging” bunk beds, a futon with a plush comfortable mattress & flat screen tv. The 3rd bedroom facing the beach has a queen size bed. At ground level is our tiki bar “The Man Overboard” and gaming area. Gaming includes a pool table, ping pong, corn hole, blackjack, darts, croquet, horseshoes, air hockey and more. There’s free wi-fi and direct tv. The historic town of ocean springs is nearby with many quaint shops, restaurants and art galleries. It was one of the ten finalists in Coastal Living Magazine's 'American's Happiest Seaside Towns 2015'. If you decide to hang around the beach during your stay there’s an endless list of things to do. You can fish from the beach or sit on our dock and throw out a line. We also provide several crab traps and a large pot for boiling them. Crabbing from our dock is a 24/7 experience. For some exercise & adventure you can arrange for Amanda at 'Paddles Up' to deliver paddle boards right to the house. Or you can contact Captain Mike (our local favorite) for a boat tour around the river or he can take you to nearby Horn Island for some exploring. He offers various options. The Island House sits just across the narrow road from our private beach (not directly on the beach) and backs up to the river/marsh side so you’re not limited to just beach activities. Visitors return to this area year after year. Once you discover the beauty, nature and peace we offer....we know you'll get hooked too!

Private Beach..Need I say More!!!!!!
My wife and I along with our mini schnauzer, JoJo, were joined by our niece, her husband and two daughters at the Island House for a wonderful long weekend in March. We were in Biloxi for our great-nieces regional dance competition. The Island House was the perfect spot to unwind after a long day at the competition.
The first day we arrived at the house JoJo was greeted with a doggie gift basket with his name on it! It was the cutest thing ever and he loved it. So impressed with the fact that the owners took their time to make JoJo feel welcome!
The house itself is fabulous. Love the open concept where we could all get together in one huge space. All the bedrooms were very spacious and perfect for our large family. The hot tub on the deck was awesome and enjoyed by all. My nieces had a fantastic time enjoying the large game room downstairs.
Loved the location of the property! It is very quite and peaceful. And of course we absolutely loved our time on our private beach! I think JoJo enjoyed it as much as anyone, that is until he bailed off into the gulf and didn't realize that it was a lot deeper than he was tall. It was his first time at the beach and he shocked us all when he jumped in.
The owners went above and beyond to make our stay one that we will remember. Looking forward to our next stay at The Island House!!!
I loved reading this Charles! Glad to hear JoJo had a great time too at our Island House. It’s always been important to us to make sure people of all ages can enjoy the property to the fullest….even on a rainy day or a “sunburn” day lol. We’ve made a few upgrades and additions in the last month that even JoJo will enjoy when you come back. You were a great guest and we look forward to your next visit.
Pictures don’t do the house justice, simple gorgeous.
Love the house and amenities. It is a great house good weather or bad. Games and more games for all ages. Really hard to shut the party down by the 10pm neighborhood rules on noise. We will be back
My husband and two teenage boys had a wonderful stay at the Beach House. The location is perfect for our family with the Gulf sand beach in the front and the bay in the back. Fishing, crabbing and sand fun. The gaming area on the main level was great for the rainy afternoons that would have otherwise been spent inside. Can't say enough about how great the owners are to work with and will be returning again.
The house is amazing!!!
House was amazing. Very clean and great location. Wish there was a little more beach but for a small family the space is fine. Also not noted in VRBO description is the $500 deposit you learn about from the owner once you book. They give plenty of time to pay it though.
Game area under the house is absolutely wonderful. (Could suggest some fans)
Thank you for sharing your home with us. Very peaceful and quiet at a dead end road!!!
I’m so glad you loved the house! We actually do have the deposit info on our website but no doubt some details can be missed when looking through it. You must not have realized we own the beach. You were welcome to spread out and enjoy it all.
Nice and fun
We had a good time and the house was nice and well equipped
A great place for a family getaway
The Island House was perfect for some quiet time with the family. It is secluded and the private beach area was perfect for relaxing. Our kids loved the game area and kayaking. This is the perfect family retreat. Christina was great to work with and was quick to answer our questions. Loved this place!
They say great minds think alike. I just wrote a review about you as a guest about 5 minutes before I received your review. You were such a great guest Pamela and I loved our communications during your stay. Guests like you sometimes make me feel I'm vacationing vicariously when I hear about all the fun they're having at our Island House. Thanks for the thoughtful gift you left us. It will be enjoyed!
