Why Charles & Patricia Ward chose Bay Saint Louis
This home is a multi-generational property originally purchased by the current owners' grandparents, Thelma and Harry Beyer. This property has been a gathering place with many fond memories ever since. Passed from generation to generation, Charles and Harry Ward owned the home prior to Katrina. Harry lovingly renovated this early 1900's home where he lived with his wife Jamie and young daughter Renee. As was the case for many houses so close to the Gulf of Mexico, Katrina left only the steps to this home and a few small treasures special to this family to this day. Harry and his family relocated to Nevada after the storm and Charles and their sister Ruth Petras decided to rebuild. With so many memories growing up from children to young adults they wanted to build the home to make those memories possible for generations to come. The home was rebuilt late in 2011 and has been a place where many shrimp have been fried, storms enjoyed with our tin roof and sunsets appreciated from our porches. Today it is referred to as the Petras-Ward House.
What makes this House unique
Porches, porches and more porches. Bay St. Louis has offered many generations of our family fond memories that we would like to share with our guests.

This beautiful home exceeded all of our expectations and the pictures provided do not do it justice! We spent the weekend with our two children, their spouses and our grandchildren. The four bedrooms and three bathrooms offered plenty of room with each family having a private bathroom and the grandchildren used one of the bedrooms as a bunk room. We loved the quiet street that was just a short shaded walk to the beach and even though beach gear was listed in the amenities, we were overwhelmed by what was provided, including kayaks! I kayaked for the first time and I'm hooked! Patricia was great to work with and was always quick to respond to our questions. We can't say enough about this wonderful home and accommodating hosts. We cannot wait to return!
Perfect house with everything you could possibly need. Very accommodating owners.
THUMBS UP !!!
Lovely house which accomodated all the needs of our family reunion. The host provided extras were a nice touch. Would highly recommend to those interested in a stay in the area.
Great Home Great location, Awesome Host
Wife and I took our family including Grand Kids for a week in Bay St Louis MS. We loved the home it was large and open, very well maintained and our host were awesome. We were 4 houses from the beach and 1 mile from downtown. The house had every amenity you want including grill, picnic tables, and beach gear. Charles and Patricia were always willing to answer questions on things to do and places to visit. We enjoyed the beach each day as well as the local shops and places to eat in Bay STL. I highly recommend this house and the owners. Come stay enjoy and most of all relax!
Beautiful and with all the amenities you could ask for. Welcome home!
What a great place to call home while visiting Bay Saint Louis and the surrounding sites. Charles and Patricia took such good care of us. So many amenities to choose from and the house just full of character. Everything we could ask for and more is what we received. We'll be back and next time for a longer stay.
This was a fabulous home and a beautiful location moments from the beach!
This was a fabulous home and a beautiful location moments from the beach and quick trip to restaurants and shops! This house had EVEYTHING you need to enjoy a weekend or more away! Even snacks, milk, and OJ waiting for us. The porches are great and so much space to enjoy underneath. The outside shower allowed for great rinse offs before heading upstairs. I only wish we could have stayed longer!
