My name is Brad but I named the house after my grandfather TJ who raised me on the water and taught me everything I know about being on the water. I have lived on the gulf coast my whole life and I probably will for the rest of my life :). I love swimming, fishing, boating, kayaking, and hammocking! After teaching Special Education for a few years I took a break to practice Real Estate, another passion of mine. While looking for houses for a client of mine I found this GEM on the river and had to buy it for myself. Driven by my memories of my grandfather, my passion for the water is as as strong as the ocean current itself. This house reminds me so much of my childhood, boating, fishing and swimming with my best friend, my grandpa TJ.
Brad purchased this House in 2015
Why Brad chose Biloxi
This Property is a full acre on the river with beautiful landscaping and a gorgeous house. I absolutely love the Biloxi River! This house has such a homey feel, with no visible neighbors, and endless views of the river, this house is perfect for a nature lover like me, who still likes a short drive to amenities.
What makes this House unique
You and your family will fall in love with the gorgeous views, wraparound porch, fruit trees and open green space. You may even pitch a tint in the yard and never go inside. Upon request, I am able to offer family kayaking lessons/rentals for the whole family to enjoy!

Just like an old friend
If you want to go back in time to the good old days, this is the place. Rustic but comfortable, close to the main stream but just far enough off the beaten path. If you want a quiet place to recharge your batteries, If you want the hustle and bustle of the casinos and beaches just minutes away, or If you want a place to just sit and watch the river roll by, this is it. The owner, Brad, welcomes you like family and my wife and I definitely plan a return visit.
Clean & Great place to stay
This home on the river suited our needs perfectly. We travel with two small dogs and this was a great fit for all of us.
Most everything is in great condition; however, a pinched nerve forced me to attempt attempt sleeping on the couches a few times. The couches have no support for bad backs, probably could use replacement couches in the home.
Because this home is located on the river, much closer to the river than the pictures imply, we realized that we were tracking a very fine, moist,sandy soil into the house every time we came inside. I would also suggest a better entrance rug to assist in getting that soil off yoru shoes, or just perhaps removing all shoes before entering, but if you have furbabies, it won't help you much.
A heads up to anyone who isn't accustomed to south Mississippi water-it does have a smell to it, and the river house is no different. The small of the water in the shower is quite strong, but that's all it is, a smell. The water itself is clear and super hot!!
No dining room table, you must use the kitchen island/bar. The stools at this bar are a challenge for sure, most are quite wobbly and the seat of them are almost even with the height of the counter top. I recommend getting lower height stools for the house.
The driveway had mudpuddles in it for the duration of our stay, it never rained. Its a red clay circular drive with a "pond" in the center of it, and either direction had some significant mud puddles. There were also some dogs on the loose in the neighborhood (the neighbor actually came over, shirtless and barefoot, and yelled at us about letting our dogs run around everywhere, only it wasn't our dogs, we were gone all day and he caught us as we were getting out of our car when we got back), so moving around in the yard with our pups was cautiously, to avoid the freerange dogs. The yard is nice, but could use a good landscaping, most of it was overgrown, not trimmed/cut or weeded. It was the very beginning of spring, so likely it wasn't quite time to start landscaping yet. We also saw a snake on the side of the river directly below the deck that surrounds the house.
Previous guests seem to like leaving items behind to share with future guests, such as condiments and bottled water.
There are no smoke detectors/alarms in the house.
Very Relaxing ! Nice and quite get away!
We had a great time just relaxing and enjoying family time together. It is our first time to this region and we were just sight seeing.
Really nice property and comfortable space.
A great time. Great time fishing and easy access.
WE LOVED THIS GETAWAY!!
First time to Biloxi, MS and first time using VRBO. Brad is Amazing! He made us feel Welcomed and gave numerous places to Go, Eat, and See. He has a Paradise Gem that is worth experiencing. We spent a week here and it made our vacation one we will never forget!
He suggested a place to eat in Hard Rock Casino that has an amazing Tuna Steak Sandwich that is to die for.
