Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 nights


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.

Why Pye Parson chose Waveland

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Pye's Place

  • 5 of 5

This little house was perfect for the 2 of us: relaxing and quiet with a short walk to the beach. It was unique and obviously well-loved with an amazing story all its own. The landscaping around the property allowed for privacy as well as the fact that most of the neighborhood had still not really been developed since Hurricane Katrina.

The city of Waveland itself has limited options for dining out or shopping but Bay St Louis is literally a bike ride away which provides all kinds of interesting shops to explore and restaurants for a variety of tastes. New Orleans is also just an hour away by car if you are really interested in variety, not just with regards to restaurants either;)

Everyone we met during our stay was friendly, helpful and often spent time telling us their personal experiences with hurricanes along the Gulf Coast. We loved every moment of our stay at Pye's House: she pays attention to details, right down to the yummy scones waiting for us in the refrigerator. I would recommend (and have recommended) staying here to anyone in need of a week or even a few days to escape. Thank You Pye!!

Tiny House Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This place is ideal for a couple's weekend get-away. You feel like you're miles away from anyone, but only a couple of blocks from the beach and a great pier.

Quiet week at the beach

  • 5 of 5

The beach house is the perfect quiet space for a couple -- close to everything you might need, but you really feel away from it all while you're up in the trees. Top to bottom, the house and its furnishings are delightfully and thoughtfully designed. We loved our stay and would definitely like to return.
