Rustic Retreat was amazing !

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Rustic Retreat ! Be sure to fish and crab at the Ocean Springs Harbor or under the bridge. The pelicans and wildlife along with the ocean backdrop is beautiful !

We had a wonderful vacation with family members and our dogs. The beach was very private and quiet. Perfect place to rest and relax. Enjoyed the seafood at McElroy's on the Bayou and Off the Hook in downtown Ocean Springs. We also took time to see a Bilox Shuckers game. Our golfer found a nice golf course and those who like antique shopping enjoyed the stores in downtown Ocean Springs. Deep Sea fishing was a lot of fun with Sting Raye charters. The washer had issues before we arrived but Sue was prompt to get a repairman even though it was a holiday week.

A great secluded location for quality time with family or friends.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this great rustic home overlooking the Belle Fontaine Beach area. The balcony is so close to the water, you have to be at the edge of the rails to see the private beach below the house. My family spent the week enjoying each others company and kayaking without any interruptions. Traffic is at a minimum since the road ends a few miles to the west. The house is very comfortable with an open floor plan and great 180 degree view of the water. With this well maintained house we never had a single problem. If you enjoy kayaking and the Gulf is too choppy, keep in mind that the Graveline Bayou is a short distance from the house with a great public boat ramp. When the water was white capping in the Gulf, the water was like glass on the bayou. If you are looking for uninterrupted time with your loved ones, this is the place.

Peace and tranquillity

  • 5 of 5

If you like peace and quiet with a good degree of privacy, this is the place for you. It has it's own private beach. Nothing like the big beaches in the tourist areas but big enough to lay on and enjoy the ocean sounds. Great view of the ocean because it's right ON the ocean. Bring your binoculars to watch the local wildlife. Really nice inside with the rustic feel outside and well maintained. Be sure to look at the family album and history of the house in the bookcase. We will be back!!!

The Rustic Retreat beach house was the perfect getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Tricia and I enjoyed our stay at the Rustic Beach House. The house sits close to the water so we enjoyed sitting out on the deck and feeling the sea breeze. The house was very well maintained with great views from kitchen, dinning, and living areas. The house is an older house with lots of character and history which we found to be very interesting. We were unable to get internet connection but the direct TV worked perfectly. The kitchen was nicely equipped and the downstairs area with the gas grill was a nice place to cook. We also enjoyed the private beach area. We look forward to our next visit.
