Relaxing garden retreat!
Our family enjoyed relaxing in the backyard after a day of walking downtown. Lovely home.
Clean and great place to stay
We had a great vacation and have booked the house for next year already.
The Name Says it All -- Garden Retreat!
From our arrival to our departure it was more like being at a friend's home than a rental. The circle drive put us at the front door so loading/unloading the vehicle was quick and easy. We didn't have to keep up with a key because it a number key pad which was wonderful for 6 adults.
Once inside, everything was well thought out and set up so we could hit the ground running--from dishwashing soap to dryer sheets.
Even though it is centrally located in the heart of Ocean Springs, you could forget all that once you stepped into the back yard. The backyard was beautiful and very relaxing. It even had fresh limes growing in the back yard--which we made use of.
We chose this particular time to visit because of the seafood festival and the weather--it was gorgeous!
We cooked out the grill in the covered area in the backyard, went fishing, swimming and walking on the beach, visiting with old friends, shopping, gambling at the casinos and just sitting around talking about "the good old days and remember when."
I highly recommend this place and the hostess, Rose Horman, who made herself available almost any time via text message. It was great and we will do it again!
House was great, beds were super comfy. really enjoyed the screened porch.
The little town was fun, lots of places to eat, drink and listen to music. Close to shopping and short road trips, like New Orleans. Would recommend for family vacations.
Very nice house. Would stay again.
The house was so nice. It was clean throughout. The backyard was nice and the porch.
The only thing we could not do was walk to town. It was just a wee bit far for me.
The owner was easy to deal with. That is always a real plus when dealing with VRBO.
Very cozy stay away from home
This was an ideal location for us to stay for our family vacation. Enough space and comfort for a small family. The location of the house is great; all the treasures of Ocean Springs are near by.
