Overview

About the property

Relaxing Private Beach Community

Our “Island House” is at the end of a private beach peninsula offering various views of the gulf, river side, boat 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 doc & fire pit seating area. 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. There’s a barbecue grill and seating area. 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 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 cooking them. Crabbing from our doc 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!

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This home was so beautiful and the owner was very prompt with all of her responses. The beach is literally steps away from the front door. Very secluded and quiet. I only saw one other person out walking on the shore. The rooms are lovely and there were many games and activities to in the home itself. I hope to stay again soon.

Family vacation 2016

  • 5 of 5

We had spent a few days traveling around so by the time we arrived at the house we were all ready to just relax.

This house exceeded our expectations, there was something for all ages and was equipped with everything we needed during our stay. The sunset was beautiful and that combine with the quiet peacefulness of sitting on the beach made it perfect! We will be planing a return trip in a couple of years. Thanks Christina!

Fabulous place!

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and there was so much to do on site that the hubby and kids never left the property. We caught and ate blue crab, hung out on the beach, played games in the tiki bar, and relaxed in the hot tub. We will be back!

Paradise!!! Our entire family LOVED this rental house & property!!! A+++++

  • 5 of 5

My review is long overdue! I meant to write this review last year. Our family stayed at "The Island House" in June of 2015. There were 7 of us. 4 adult children, our 6 year old daughter, and my husband and I. Even with 7 of us, we had MORE than enough room! The house was so gorgeous, comfy, and better than we could have imagined!

Everything you could want, is there! Amazing fishing, crabbing, privacy, games, dock, beach, plus, some of the most amazing sunsets we have ever seen!

Christina, the owner was beyond wonderful to work with! I am a person that asks a ton of questions, and she was so caring, patient, and kind. She went above and beyond to make sure our stay was perfect! This by far was one of the best vacation rental experiences we have ever had!

The house sits at the end of the road on a very private, beautiful piece of property. Just steps away from the front of the house, you are on your own little private beach on the gulf. Our family fished off the beach and in the evening enjoyed watching some of the most stunning sunsets we have ever witnessed!

Just steps away from the back of the house is a lovely wooden pathway that leads to a private dock with crab traps, seating, and lighting for night or day fishing! This spot was the older children's favorite! I loved the game area under the house, we enjoyed having drinks and playing darts, pool, and cards. There is also a fire pit, but we never got the chance to use it.

On the top deck coming off the master bedroom and living room, there was a whole other area to relax! There was a screened in back porch where we enjoyed having meals, and to the right was a big hot tub! We enjoyed the hot tub at night. My daughter took tons of pictures of the beautiful tree frogs that would come visit at night.

The inside of the house was very clean, roomy, comfy, and gorgeous! The master bedroom was amazing, it was huge! The master bathroom was a pleasant surprise! From the huge stone shower, to the huge Jacuzzi tub, it was truly enjoyed by this gal! I loved having a glass of wine and taking a relaxing bath at night. My 6 year old loved the tub too.

Last but definitely NOT least! The best part of our trip was Horn Island! Christina has info for Captain Mike. Captain Mike took our family out to the Island for an entire day! It was like having our own private tropical island! He picked us all up by boat right at the house and took us across to Horn Island. Captain Mike is wonderful!!!

Best Thankgiving in a long time!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at "The Island House" during Thanksgiving and it was amazing, between the beach, the view, the fire pit, hot tub and the amazing kitchen we got to cook in; we could not have ask or more.

We would definitely love to stay at the Island House again!!!

A perfect spot for a family vacay ...

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 and my sister's family of 3 had the pleasure of staying at the Island House for a week in June. What a great spot to enjoy the Gulf! This was our second time visiting the peninsula as well as our second time staying in one of Christine and Mark's lovely homes .. Both times have been so inviting and stress-free! We will definitely return and truly feel we've found a spot where our family can continue to make lasting memories. We love catching the crabs, spending our days on the sand, and enjoying our evenings with all the amenities ... We never feel the need to find entertainment! It's simplicity at it's best and Christine and Mark make sure of that.
