Only a half mile walk to the beach, and situated across from St. Stanislaus athletic fields. Lovely art galleries, gift stores, antique stores, restaurants and bars abound. The large garden is fenced and safe for dogs. We have recently added a saltwater pool with ample lounging and seating surrounding it. The cottage is circa 1880's and was renovated two years ago which includes a fully equipped stainless steel and granite kitchen. The bathroom is modern with a tub and shower. Charming wrap around side porch (perfect for reading), and deck on back of home. Rooms are light and bright with high ceilings and fans. Washer and dryer in home. Large off street parking area.

About Julia Kingham
We live in New Orleans and have been visiting BSL for many years. The contrast from the bustle of the city is really relaxing, and we find the locals welcoming and friendly. We are huge dog lovers and have often run into the dilemma of our dogs being large and having three total makes it almost impossible to find accommodation. So we are happy to open our home to responsible dog owners. Quite a few of the bars/restaurants allow dogs, which we really take advantage of.
Julia Kingham purchased this Cottage in 2016
Why Julia Kingham chose Bay Saint Louis
It is walking distance to the beach and old town. We have comfortable outdoor seating for lounging and dining, and an all around well appointed and tastefully decorated cottage.
What makes this Cottage unique
The old historic charm of this cottage reminds of us New Orleans, with the benefit of being walking distance to the water, and small town atmosphere.

Very Relaxing Stay
I was there for one week with my two teenage daughters. We had a wonderful time. The cottage is very tastefully decorated. It rained a lot the week we were there but we enjoyed watching Netflix and Hulu on their smart tv. The kitchen is fully furnished and we cooked quite a few meals. The pool in the back is an added bonus!
In my opinion, this is the nicest cottage in the area. The neighborhood felt safe and it is directly across from a baseball field.
P.S.--There is a specialty grocery store not far (similar to a Whole Foods) that has great prices. We went twice and loved it.
So glad you all enjoyed your stay despite the weather! Thank you for your kind words, would be happy to have you return to our cottage.
Thank you so much for sharing your charming cottage on VRBO. Everything is so tastefully decorated and the yard & pool are beautiful. My women friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our five day stay and my little lab Bella gives it 4 paws up 🐾�🐾�! The only thing missing for her were your dogs to play with, ha ha, but she enjoyed picking up their scents around the yard. You have thought of everything and provided for your guests’ (human and canine) every need. Morning coffee on the comfortable and shaded side porch with a good book and the scent of magnolias and gardenias in the air was a particularly pleasant way to start the day. Followed by cycling through the neighborhoods (I brought my own bike), lazy afternoons in the pool and homemade margaritas at cocktail time, this was just what I needed. We were fortunate to be there on 2nd Saturday and enjoyed strolling along Main St. and the beachfront before dinner. I’ve stayed in several VRBO rentals in BSL since Katrina and yours ranks at the top. There are only a few 1-2 bedroom private cottages with pools (and I’ve now stayed in three of them) but yours is the only one that is dog-friendly. Don’t pay attention to the one strange & completely undeserving negative review because the neighborhood, just like all of the surrounding neighborhoods, is perfectly fine. Very peaceful and safe. I loved having the St. Stanislaus ballparks across the street where there were practices in the late afternoon and I would have enjoyed a game too if it were baseball or football season. The owners have clearly put a lot of work into creating their BSL oasis and are very generous to share it with others. I know because my husband and I are in real estate in New Orleans and have several rentals ourselves. I hope to be back next summer!
We had a great time here. Perfect and charming cottage. Great walking town with beautiful beaches. We were especially grateful for accommodating our dog. He was one happy pooch.
Bay St Louis
Two words.....NEVER AGAIN!!! We didn’t even stay one night of the six nights we were supposed to be there. In their defense...the inside of the house was very nice and clean. The problem was it is located in a horrible neighborhood and it was not dog friendly for our dog. The owner seemed very nice...it just wasn’t a good property for us.
Two words....THANK GOODNESS!!!! these guests didn't stay. Shortly after arrival we received a call from a concerned neighbor that there was a very loud domestic dispute (full of expletives) taking place on the front porch. This disturbance was followed by luggage being kicked from the porch, onto walkway and then kicked again into the parking area. (Damage to the porch resulted). There was some concern as to whether the police should be notified. However, upon being told the the guests had vacated realized it was not necessary. As the many reviews claim the home is very dog friendly, and has received zero complaints about such, or the neighborhood. We always appreciate being told that there will be dog(s) and if one asks for special needs we will do our best to provide. In this case we were not informed.
Had a good time here, met friendly locals who made us feel welcome, nice property and garden. Sadly we didn't get to sit out or to use the pool because of the weather but it looks very inviting. Pretty and comfortable property.
Great visit Thanksgiving Week
The property was perfect for our stay! We enjoyed the lovely home & yard. The house was well decorated, clean & comfortable! It was cool the week we were there so we didn't get to enjoy the pool. Hopefully we will get to retirn when weather is warm.
Every 2nd Saturday of the month is an artwalk that features the shops and galleries staying open a little later and offering music and libations. Some street entertainment is often present, and it is usually well attended. There are several casinos close by.
