About the property

Modern "Dogtrot" style Cottage - two bedroom, one and a half bath

Liliiflora Cottage is a privately owned modern “dogtrot” style vacation home.

The home is newly constructed (2015) and is provisioned with all of the necessities and conveniences to ensure a comfortable stay. The “Dog Trot” design allows each of the two bedrooms to open onto a large screened breezeway, which is great for sleeping with the doors and windows open on cool nights. The porch is a great place to relax in one of the hanging hammock chairs and read a good book. The main house has vaulted ceilings, a full kitchen, half bath, laundry and a living area with flat screen TV and wireless internet. Two "Beach Cruiser" bikes are also available for guest to use.

Liliiflora Cottage is conveniently located within a five minute walk to East Beach and only a Five minute bike ride to Ocean Spring’s charming downtown area. Downtown Ocean Springs is host to the famous Walter Anderson Museum and the Mary C. O'Keefe Cultural Center, you’ll also find unique shops, art galleries, museums, the best restaurants on the coast and lots of friendly people. There is almost always something going on downtown, farmers markets and festivals during the day and plenty of night life with great live music at night. The Inner Harbor is only a couple of minutes away and is a great place to buy fresh shrimp right off the boat or book a fishing trip to the barrier islands. The area offers plenty of great fishing that is easily accessible if you prefer to bring your own boat (parking available on site). Shearwater Pottery is just east of the harbor and is an interesting place to stop in. Just a little further up the road is Front Beach. Here there are sandy beaches, picnics tables, bonfire pits, and a community fishing pier. Ft. Maurepas Park is located just across from Front Beach, which is a great place for younger children. There is a new splash pad, playground equipment and a covered picnic area. The parks amphitheater is often host to concerts and other events. Further west is the Ocean Springs/Biloxi Bridge, a very popular and scenic place for walkers to take advantage of the nearly two mile pedestrian walkway over the Mississippi Sound. On the other side of the bridge, Biloxi offers plenty of Casinos and restaurants, the world famous Ohr O'Keefe Museum of Art, the Maritime and Seafood Industry Museum, Beauvoir (The home of Confederate President Jefferson Davis) and the newly opened MGM Park (a 5,000+ seat baseball stadium that is home the Biloxi Shuckers). Ocean springs is also a great jumping off place for a day trip to New Orleans, which is only about 90 miles away, or to Mobile and Dauphin Island, 50 or so miles away.

Great Biloxi Getaway !!!!

  • 5 of 5

This property is a 10 out of 10. If you like the pictures of this property then you wont believe it when you get there....it is even better. The house is like a 5 star resort . We had a wonderful time. The location felt remote with a view of the water and we were only 5 minutes from downtown Ocean Springs and 10 minutes from Biloxi. We plan on coming back again this Fall. Our new favorite location !!!! Dan and Brenda from Ohio

Home tucked away with short walk to incredible beach. I think I heard that the beach is 26 miles and I bet it's 200 feet wide of beautiful sand. Wonderful places to eat all over town. Friendly Area. We ate our way through Ocean Springs and Biloxi and can't wait to do it again.

Lots of great places to watch birds and be quiet and reflect. Fun to go gamble in Biloxi and eat Cajun and creole foods. Fun fun fun and I can't wait to go back. We have told the whole world.

Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

We were visiting our daughter in Ocean Springs and this was a perfect house for my wife and I and our small dog. Everything was new and it was laid out great. The dog trot layout with the screened porch and fenced yard was perfect for our dog while we were running a few errands.

  • 5 of 5

This was rental was one of the best decorated places we have ever stayed. The place was well stocked with necessities for a weekend stay. We loved the option of having bikes and used them to ride a block over to the beach and around the town. Thank you Mr. Johnson for sharing your home :)

Felt like I was at home

  • 5 of 5

We have been visiting Mississippi for the CTC the past 7 years. This cottage is by far the best place we've ever stayed. First the owners allow dogs 👍𣐮 Second the place was so clean and had all the amenities you would need. Lastly the neighbors were so sweet and loved dogs too! The cottage is close to everything you need. Restaurants in OS, the beach, groceries and they have bikes you can use. I can't say enough about this charming cottage.
