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.

Wonderful visit, amazing property! We loved it!
We had an absolutely spectacular weekend at this absolutely gorgeous house. So glad we picked this one!
Lovely beach vacation
The house, grounds and location are perfect. Everything you could possibly need for a beach vacation is provided. I mean everything and more! The house is gorgeous, relaxed and comfortable. The attention to detail is very special and truly welcoming. We will always stay here. Thank you to our hosts for a stellar experience!
Awesome house!!! Worked out so well for our family! Close to everything in the Bay.
We absolutely loved this house! Ample space. Clean, comfortable, lots of porches and great place for family to gather. Snacks and drinks were a nice touch!! We love the Bay!! Great people, town and food!
Wonderful home close to everything!
We rented the house for our daughter and her bridesmaids. The House was buzzing with excitement as two makeup artists and two hairdressers got all the girls ready. The main living space was so open that it was no problem for all nine bridesmaids and the moms to move around freely. When I arrived to the home, there were snacks on the counter and in the fridge. These little things mean so much and really set the tone for the stay... very welcoming. There were lovely outdoor spaces, upstairs and under the house, to gather and enjoy the breezes from the beach that is literally steps away! Although we didn’t use it, there was a golf cart available to take to the local restaurants downtown.
I live in Bay Saint Louis and have rented other homes for our out of town guests. I will ALWAYS choose this home now. Thank you so much for the hospitality!
My husband and I had the best time while staying at the Petras-Ward Home. House is beautiful and has everything you could ever need. This was our second stay here and plan on returning!
