About Lisa Eveleigh

I am an editor, writer and photographer who lived in Bay St. Louis for nearly twenty years. Work has taken me and my family away, but we'll be back one day. There's so much to love about Bay St. Louis!

Lisa Eveleigh purchased this House in 1999

Why Lisa Eveleigh chose Bay Saint Louis

My husband and I bought this house years ago, shortly after we moved to the area from North Carolina with our young children. We love the light that the house has and the beautiful old Live Oak in the front yard. The mid-century Florida ranch layout with the living room on one end and bedrooms on the other allows for privacy and relaxation.

What makes this House unique

I really love that I can leave the car in the driveway and walk or bike to town, for yoga, a visit with friends at the Mockingbird coffee shop, or shopping and dining at our other great restaurants. I loved sitting on the screened porch or under the oak - with coffee in the morning, and a glass of wine in the evening.

It's a short walk to the beach and harbor. Its also just a thirty minutes drive to Biloxi and one hour to Ocean Springs to the east and New Orleans to the west. For nature lovers, greenways, sandways and blueways are all nearby, as well as live music and casinos for those in search of nightlife.

The house is located within easy walking distance to antiques, shops and restaurants. The kitchen is well equipped if you would like to cook. Linens and beds were comfortable and clean. Having two seating areas was an added bonus. The screened in porch was great for morning coffee. The owner and caretaker were both very easy to work with and offered lots of good suggestions about Bay St Louis. The house was just right for five people and gave us enough space, amenities and a great location. BSL is a friendly, laid back town and we spent most of our time there and didn't feel the need to drive further afield. Long Beach, Gulfport and New Orleans are within driving distance. Due to the weather, we weren't able to get beach time, but there were beach chairs available for guests. I definitely recommend this cottage and hope to return

The place was clean and well appointed and owner was very responsive (even after my stay helping with items left behind). We walked to beach, restaurants, and shops. Perfect for us and our lil pups. Thanks again Lisa!
