Relaxing Private Beach Community
Our Island House is at the end of a private beach peninsula offering various views of the gulf, river side, 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. 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!

Beautiful Beach Home
This is a beautiful beach home situated at the point of a secluded peninsula with all the amenities imaginable. The private beach is beautiful and the marsh is amazing. You will discover something new to explore everyday. The game area has plenty to keep all of the family occupied when not at the beach. If you have the urge to leave paradise, you an venture to downtown Ocean Springs or Biloxi. Gulf Shores is 1.5 hours away for a great day trip of shopping and more entertainment. Christina and her assistant will help you have a great beach vacation.
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.
Private and peaceful.
Our grown children, grandson, and sister in law joined us for a week of (relative) warmth and relaxation on the gulf. Although the weather did not cooperate, we still had a wonderful time. The location of this property makes trips to stores, restaurants, etc... a bit of a haul, but if you plan accordingly it's not a problem. On the other hand, the location also lends itself to privacy and quiet that you can't get in town! The owner is an absolute joy to work with and was always available to answer questions or help in any way. Because Christina allows well behaved pets, I was able to bring my two search and rescue dogs along and keep up with their training while on vacation - I think they had more fun than anyone!! Tons of fun and laughter crabbing (especially when the boys fell in the creek!), playing on the beach, and spending time in the absolutely wonderful patio area - great place to hang out and play when it's raining!
Beautiful and fun stay with a stunning view!
The owner was very responsive and helpful. The outside of the house is filled with so much to do that we didn't end up really leaving to do anything and it didn't matter because the views are stunning. The inside of the house gorgeous and decorated amazingly. I spent a good amount of time looking at all the wonderful pieces in the house. I would definitely stay again.
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
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!
