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.

Cute, comfortable, and convenient!
This place is well-furnished and close to everything in BSL. Everything was clean and fresh with some whimsical touches. Spacious and comfortable, but not some place you would want to cook Thanksgiving dinner (very small kitchenette). Only two wishes: coffee for morning struggles and we could not find the WiFi password (teenager was experiencing some signs and symptoms of withdrawal). We had dinner at Cuz's - try the swamp fries! We would definitely stay here again!
Very well equipped and comfortable
Everything was great!
Cute and quaint
The property was super clean, cute and quaint. Really close walk to the beach and fishing areas with a coffee shop just a few blocks away. Definitely a place to come if you are wanting to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
Charming town - Main Street is at the beach and harbor and this place is close
Very cute and comfortable place. This was our first venture using VRBO and the like and could not have turned out better. This property is half of an entire house with someone living in the other our portion being the half facing Carroll Ave. This was not an issue and everyone was respectful of the night hours. There was plenty of space with a small well but equipped kitchen,be sure to bring some K-cups if you are a coffee drinker. It is very nicely done and this was so much better than a plain hotel room. The house is within walking distance to the beach,shopping and dining, but a good walk if you are older. There is a grocery store within easy driving around the corner and we had more fun with our nieces at the splash park virtually across the street. The only thing I would have wished for were some darker window shades and the parking was a little tight but certainly not unmanageable unless you have a big truck. We were very pleased and would not hesitate to stay again next time we are in BSL.
Cute house, cute town
Our family of 4 stayed here for a week while we enjoyed Bay St. Louis and the surrounding area. This is a charming old house that has been divided into two dwellings. It is the perfect size to be comfortable with kids, has a great location close to restaurants, cute shops, and the water front, and it has a washer/dryer! It was really nice to not return home with a bunch of laundry to do.
The kitchen is very small, but functional if you’re just doing basic things like making coffee and simple meals.
Bay St. Louis is charming and artsy, with beautiful homes and moss hanging from the trees. What a gem! If you do go outside of town, you’re close enough to enjoy New Orleans or most of the gulf. We went from New Orleans all the way to Dauphin Island, AL while there. Great exploring!
If you have younger kids, there is a great little park with a splash pad across the street!
My only complaint- and that’s really too strong a word- is the we received no communication from VRBO or the owner before we got there and, other than the actual reservation which was made 6 weeks beforehand, it would have been nice to have that confirmation before we drove 2 states away- also we didn’t know where the key was, etc. I did call Sheila and she was responsive and friendly.
One note: you do share a wall with the people in the other part of the house and you may be able to hear them.
Despite little things, we had a 5 star experience. Thank you!
