About Sheila Riso
My family , The Riso's, are from New Orleans LA. and like many NOLA residents , my grandfather Dominic Riso had an old fashioned camp on the beach in Pass Christain in the 50's ... I grew up hearing stories about the coast and my fathers years at Gulf Coast Military Academy soooo, I guess I have my Grandfathers Gulf Coast fever and have planned for years to move to the Coast. I purchased this property in Bay St Louis August 2013 and completed renovations May 2015 keeping as much of the old as I could while adding the new. This is an owner occupied property with guest suites. I love Bay St Louis and will help you in any way I can.
Sheila Riso purchased this House in 2013
Why Sheila Riso chose Bay Saint Louis
I also bought this property because I love older homes and Pink Heron was built in 1938. It has beautiful patina hard wood floors and the original charm of that period construction. It is a typical American House with 9ft ceilings, crown molding and solid tight construction. It's raised on Piers and did not Flood or sustain any damage during Katrina or any other storm. I have renovated many homes and this is my favorite so far.

Great place. Perfect for weekend trip.
Lovely place to stay. Great living room and bathroom. Kitchen is cut and whole set up is spacious.
Welcomed by Owner. We had access to a grill and bicycles. Close to beach and local restaurants. Great time.
Great spot in a lovely neighborhood!
The place was spacious and clean and the bed was comfortable. We enjoyed taking daily walks to the beach and nearby restaurants and shops. It’s a great little getaway. We hope to come back again!
Quaint just like the town it's in !
Great location, lovely decor, very neat and clean a swell place to relax. The owner is very accommodating and created this place for the visitors enjoyment. Would definitely recommend for your vaca.
Luv these guest, they wrote me the nicest thank you note and i say THANK YOU TOO.....
This is a great place to stay when you are in town. It gave me the opportunity to see what Bay St Louis has to offer, in food, drink and entertainment. Nice area, close to everything downtown! It has a tiny kitchen , but who needs or wants to cook when you have so many really good restaurants near you.
Bay St Louis is such a nice place to be!
Great guest and lovely to host ... come again sometime
Love the property, love the owner
Good value. Cute little house. Funky little unit. Not fancy. Very homey. Old, comfortable furniture. Small, functional kitchenette. If you enjoy walking, it's close to town and the beach--which typically took us about 15-20 minutes (and we would often do it twice a day). Quick drive to the highway for groceries and such. And Sheila, the owner, was great. We'll be back.
the best guest , like having family
