About the Property

Bird Watchers Paradise featured on National TV!

Nestled in a live oak, this one bedroom/one bath home is perfect for a "couples getaway" on a quiet wooded lot only 2 blocks from the beach. 15' in the air and surrounded by windows, you'll see birds and a bobcat, if you are lucky, from the balcony! We provide 2 bikes so you can enjoy a morning ride to Bay St Louis for breakfast or a sunset pedal on the many paths provided.!!!! The beach is protected by barrier islands and fed by the Jordan River so it is nutrient rich (great for fishing and birding) and much more like a bay. Our garden is a work in progress with native longleaf pines, coastal prairie field, and my "Cocktail Garden". In this raised bed you will find fresh mint and rosemary to create a refreshing afternoon drink.....mixed with grapefruit and lime (and your preferred libation) you'll be relaxing in the summer breeze in no time! Please note this an ADULT ONLY (2 adults max) and absolutely NO PETS due to severe allergies and our effort to maintain the natural wildlife which you rarely see in an urban environment, but we capture on our WILDLIFE CAMS (as well as your pets). Not adhering to these rules result in an automatic loss of deposit as well as a vacation from premise. Please confirm these when booking! It will save us a lot of time :). Check IN 4pm - Check OUT NOON. We are happy to accommodate earlier/later if we can, but you will need prior approval.

Additional linens and towels (other than those provided in bathroom) will accrue an additional cost of $15/sheet set and $5/towel that will be taken out of deposit.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

Why the Owner Chose Waveland, MS, USA:
My dream was to live on the Gulf Coast with a Live Oak, but I couldn't stand the traffic and long waits at restaurants at most beach destinations on the Gulf. I found a gem in Waveland that allows me to be on the water and to enjoy nature at the same time. I know the owners of the shops and restaurants, and they know me. No waiting in lines, like I imagine "old florida" use to be where your "chef" may have been the one who caught the fish you are eating.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Modern home with walking and bike trails. Two bikes provided. Native long leaf Pines, wild flowers, and a window to the local wildlife. Breakfast Diner and local convenience store 1 block away. More shopping and dining in Bay St Louis 3 miles away. Fresh herbs in the garden for use.
