Close proximity to town for the extras you may need .Gulport and Hattiesburg are 30 minutes away. Christine was very kind to my family and a great host. Thank you Christine for opening up this awesome home for us to enjoy.

Little corner of Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

I rate this stay among my top 3 vrbo stays!! This family and home are wonderful! From the booking until even after I came home they made sure that our stay was as comfortable and wonderful as anyone could! We were simply blown away when we walked into this beautiful historical home!! The antiques are breath taking!! The love just exudes through Mimis house!! We had everthing and anything we needed or could have needed for our stay! Its clean quiet and Beautiful! ! The 5 young men (2 my sons) I had traveling with me are still talking about this beautiful house!! The pictures do not do it justice! Omg, the windows are amazing!!! The view from the breakfast nook is soo peaceful! Its close to town yet secluded enough for peace and privacy! Biloxi and Gulfport are great places to go explore. Must eat places...**the whistle stop in wighins, its your southern comfort foods and more..**the Frosted mug...fried oreos, need i say more? ...drive about 20 mins to gulfport and try **The Shed..the barbeque was mouth watering! Aslo...When you stay at Mimis house look for a little plastic iron man that my guys found in the house..it was already there and we were the first guests to stay in this home so the guys started a game we played the entire stay.. whoever finds iron man shows the other guests then that person hides him in plain site for someone else to find and so on..we had a great time..lol..i find myself plotting to come back to Mississippi just so we can enjoy Mimis house again!! Christine was such a pleasure to visit with! She made us feel like family!! Oh I even left my beloved tablet behind and she had it priority mailed to me!! God Bless you for that Christine!! I m sure im forgetting something. ..let me sum up by saying I hope your family can have as wonderful of a stay as mine did!
