About Allen Reed
Moved to the Gulf Coast in 1996 and lived in Waveland until 2005 and afterwards resettled to the current location.
Allen Reed purchased this House in 2007
Why Allen Reed chose Bay Saint Louis
We bought this property due to its proximity to the beach and the size of the yard. Since 2007, we have established numerous butterfly and rain gardens using native plants to create a beautifully secluded nook just off the center of "The Bay".
What makes this House unique
Some of our favourite qualities about the property include the front porch, the front dining room, the views out our windows overlooking the yard and gardens and the privacy from trees and large plants. Sitting on the front porch enjoying our morning coffee is something we enjoy every morning at sunrise. In the evenings we enjoy our dinner looking out the front window watching the sunset.

Cute little cottage tucked in a garden with a sense of privacy.
Truly an outstanding stay-we extended it two days! The house is wonderful and super clean and comfortable. The owners are great and there if you need something (like advice on fishing saltwater!) but absolutely not intrusive. Really a wonderful place to stay a block from the beach in a lovely little town on the Mississippi Gulf Coast and the Bay Saint Louis.
Beautiful, comfortable house with a deck and huge gardens
We had a very pleasant stay here. The house is well appointed and comfortable, and the grounds are a huge plus. We cooked on the grill, then strolled around the huge, incredibly beautiful garden that Allen and Cathy have, then relaxed on the adirondack chairs and stared at the stars. In the morning we took the very short stroll to the beach and stopped to chat with a few of the very friendly neighbors along the way. We spent the day on the beach relaxing, then went to town for a really fun Second Saturday. The whole weekend was wonderful, and Allen ad Cathy are wonderfully nice people. That is reflected in their pricing, almost no fees! They are just really nice people offering a really nice deal. And BSL is really wonderful little community that happens to have a great beach. If you've never been, you should go check it out!
Very charming cottage tucked away behind trees & surrounded by beautiful gardens.
Very charming cottage tucked away behind trees and surrounded by beautiful gardens. It has beautiful hardwood floors, Cypress doors, ocean blue tile in the bathrooms, lots of windows & light, unique artwork, a picture perfect covered front porch with rockers, and a rear deck. It’s an easy block & a half walk to the beach & 1/2 mile to restaurants in town. The kitchen is cozy, but has all the necessities. The only thing that would have made our stay better is a sofa & tv in the living area. The owners are very nice & put a lot of special touches into their cottage & landscape.
Very nice and clean place to stay
It’s a cute house close to the center of town! We loved the front porch with its rocking chairs and thanks to the flower garden, you feel secluded from the neighborhood! Would stay here again.
Great beach house
A great place to stay. Loved the gardens with lots of birds. The place had everything we needed - it exceeded my expectations. Owners were very responsive and accomodating and shared helpful information regarding the area. The bicycles were a plus.
