About Marion Bowman

I am a retired teacher with a house to large for one person. My children all live in California. where I lived for 20 years before coming home to the South. Grew up in NO and went to LSU.

I enjoy the warm climate most of the year. The house is on pilings but easy stairs to navigate. There's a caretaker apt downstairs which makes the area very secure. Vandalism is rare in the area. I travel a great deal and the apt decor reflects that.

Marion Bowman purchased this house in 2008

Why Marion Bowman chose Waveland

I've always had houses with especially water views. I bought this propery 25 years ago with the intention of possibly retiring here. My sister lived close by so I had visited her many times while going to NO to visit my Mother and family. I build the beach house 20 years age, and started another Montessori School in the area. The house was destroyed in Katrina but was re-build 3 years later. I was not here for the hurricane and so I stayed in CA until the house was re-built.

What makes this house unique

I enjoy my house for I like having coffee on my porch and enjoying the evening breeze. With large windows I have a great view from the living room. The apt has the same views.

Quiet beach getaway was just what I was wanting and is just what I got.

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed my stay at this home right across the street from a long quiet stretch of beach. My host, Marion and her resident handyman, Brad were very friendly and helpful when I arrived and when I departed, leaving me to enjoy my time there in peace and quiet. The best part was the long wide porch with comfortable chairs and a sofa where I loved watching the people go by with their dogs. No traffic no large condos, just resident beach house and the neighbors. There is a nice large pier not far down the beach and beautiful beach houses to admire. The rooms I occupied we're part of the host's house but separate, so you come and go as you like. There were two beds and a trundle, large nice bathroom with tub shower combo. Great towels and linens, microwave fridge, dishes even had coffee. Ceiling fans in front room and bedroom which was great because that's what I'm used to at home. There also is an apartment sized washer dryer and sink to wash up your dishes. All in all, everything you need for a comfortable stay for two to three people. My daughter and 2 friends stayed here back in September, enjoyed it so much my daughter sent me. I believe one or both of us will be back soon. I have stayed in several VRBO homes recently and have enjoyed the ease in checking in and out, so much better than a hotel. Plus, there is some really interesting reading material for you to enjoy. Read Marion's book, very interesting life story, with more to come I'm sure.

A great and relaxing spring break

  • 5 of 5

Love to the location, love the amenities but the kitchen was a little hard to work around. We kind of had a flashback to our college days in the hotplate! Loved also being able to read your book while I was the location and history of Waveland and the great restaurants in Saint Charles were awesome! I do hope that we can do a trade during SXSW next spring break! All our best And we look forward to hopefully seeing you again in the future!

Beautiful view of the ocean

  • 5 of 5

The location can't be topped, beautiful view from the deck and you can walk across the street to the water. The space is cozy for two people but entirely workable. Plan on eating out or using the small fridge to hold snacks. Great as a home base when visiting Waveland/BSL area. We had a wonderful stay and will stay here again when we are in town.

Cozy Spot Right Across from the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We loved this rental! Marion is a wonderful host and Polo (her dog) is a friendly welcoming committee. :) This was a nice spot for our getaway as a couple. Perfect location, directly across the street from the beach. We enjoyed sunrises and then walks along the beach, along with exploring the area. It was our third visit to Waveland and we love this community! The unit had everything we needed, and the washer/dryer came in handy. Patio was great for lunches and we felt very welcome the entire time. Would definitely recommend this spot!

Calm during the Storm

  • 5 of 5

Our homeowner Marion and her property caretaker Brad were wonderful! The unit (an apartment inside a home) was clean and comfortable, had a kitchenette and laundry available, and a beautiful porch to watch the sun rise over the Gulf. Even when a hurricane was eminent, Marion and Brad kept us calm and helped us to prepare for what could have been a scary event. We had a peaceful stay in Waveland!
