                                                          Great little cottage in a great location!!

                                                          Mark & Linda P.

                                                          We had a wonderful month in Ocean Springs. We thoroughly enjoyed this pristine cottage which was perfect for my wife and myself, but was the right size to host our adult son too. The high ceiling in the living room makes the living area seem extremely spacious. It is well appointed with comfortable furniture for tv and games playing. The Hintons are wonderful, friendly hosts who are right next store and eager to assist in any way possible. We enjoyed the festivals and happenings in Ocean Springs and Biloxi. When we return to Ocean Springs we will definitely wish to stay here again.

                                                          Exceptional location, immaculate housing

                                                          Richard S.Newark, Ohio

                                                          Ken and Teena have thought of everything to make your stay relaxed. We were just a couple older Yankee's on our first trip along the gulf. I can't say enough about Ocean Springs being the greatest place for exploring the coast for the first time, or returning each year to feel as if you have always lived here. K & T personalize the visit like you have always known them. This location is a short walk to Government Street, which is the center of town and the restaurant area. We arrived a day before the local Mardi Gras parade, and as our first experience at that, it was exceptional... Lot's of live music of various types along Government St during our visit. Turtle Crossing is in the center of it all, and you won't want to go back home.

                                                          They do have wi-fi, which we noticed has been reported wrong. It's slow, but that's just how it is in the South. Every size of bikes are in their shed, if you need them. We were able to set up a couples massage while in town, and I would highly recommend that. And several yoga classes are nearby, if that's your thing.

                                                          We can't wait to go back, and we just got home today... You will feel at home.

                                                          Owner's Response:

                                                          Thanks so much for visiting our hometown and our house! We are blessed to be able to open our rental home to visitors and meet some great new friends! Love that y'all really got around to a lot of local places. Come back anytime! It was a pleasure meeting you and Carol. Stay warm!

                                                          The house was supplied with everything we needed. It was in a great location. Easy walk to downtown area and easy drive to Biloxi.

                                                          Super cute and quaint~ a warm coastal cottage and super close to everything!

                                                          Kenneth and Teena were very nice and accommodating. You can tell they have a lot of pride in this rental as it was super clean and the attention of detail with the decor. Wish we could have ridden the bikes they provide, but ran out of time. We didn’t need it, but there is no WiFi ...they do provide up to date movies so that was cool! I was there for a Thanksgiving family reunion and would definitely stay here again!!

                                                          Thank you for a great review Angela. We are always glad to accommodate our guests in any way we can. We do have Cable WIFI in the rental. I am using it right now to respond to this review. I wish you would have let me know you were having problems while you were here, I would have been happy to help. The WIFI instructions were in the book for internet and the Smart tv's Roku streaming channels. Thanks for spending your holiday in our home! Hopefully next trip you will be able to do some bike rides! OS has some great scenery!

                                                          Beautiful super clean house with a host as accommodating as they come. It was an absolute pleasure to stay here and the bikes were an added bonus to ride to the beach and around town. The host also brought over a high chair for our 18 month old and mailed a phone charger we left back to us. Will be staying here again!!

                                                          Great place to stay in ocean springs!!
