Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Our family roots on the Gulf Coast go back over 300 years. Owner and wife are from New Orleans and Mobile respectively. We currently live in Mandeville, Louisiana, with our five daughters. We initially bought the house in Bay St. Louis for a weekend family getaway, but with the girls growing older and college costs growing even faster, we decided to open our much-loved house to guests. The original 125 year old Creole cottage on our lot was washed away by Hurricane Katrina; only the chimney bricks and cast iron bathtubs remained. The current house was completed in 2009.

Why the Owner Chose Bay Saint Louis, MS, USA:
Bay St. Louis is to us a magical place. There is always a sea breeze to be caught on the porch. The nights are so peaceful and quiet, and the stars so clear and bright, that it seems like you are far, far away from civilization. The beach is very accessible (no seawall) and close (about 500 feet). Downtown, with lively restaurants and cute shops, is less than a mile away, so it's the best of both worlds. It's a very family-oriented place, with plenty to do for kids once they're tired of the beach.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Very close to beach and downtown Bay St. Louis. Peaceful, open setting.
