Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Mississippi

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

“Undisturbed, quiet, and peaceful” describes the setting of this beautiful gulf front retreat. The home is delightfully relaxing and beautifully furnished. Whether you bring your golf clubs, a fishing pole, or a good book, you are sure to enjoy your stay!!

The lapping waves of the Gulf of Mexico are ten steps from your balcony where the only sounds you will hear are from the seagulls. You may even witness two crabs playing on the beach, but for sure you will be enchanted by the natural beauty of this property. This beach is in it's natural state, therefore we strongly recommend that you wear some type of foot wear on the beach.

Although located seemingly miles away from civilization, this gulf front home in Ocean Springs is only 20 minutes from the casinos of the Mississippi Gulf Coast. For the shopper, there is a substantial commercial area (shops, restaurants, movie theatre, etc.) within a 10-15 minute drive. If golf is your game, you will be delighted to find the St. Andrews Golf Course two miles down the road.

The home has just been completed and is furnished in sleek, polished décor. You may entertain friends and relax in the comfortable family room with plenty of seating. There is a 37” flat screen television in the family room which is equipped with Direct TV service (no network channels). Take in an unsurpassed view of the gulf on our balcony with outdoor furnishings just off the family room.

Enjoy cooking a meal for your family in the gourmet kitchen with stainless steel appliances. You will find all the kitchen gadgets and dinnerware needed in our fully stocked kitchen. There is table seating for six in the sunny breakfast area. The water is provided by a well resulting in occasional low water pressure.

The master suite is elegantly decorated and has a comfortable queen size bed outfitted with luxurious linens. There is an outdoor balcony off the master bedroom and a master closet with ample space. The master bathroom is oversized and designed in contemporary Caribbean style. You will enjoy double vanities with granite countertops, a bathtub/shower, and plenty of space to dress.

There are two guest bedrooms. One is playfully decorated with youngsters in mind. It has one twin bed ( with a trundle bed underneath) and a bunk bed with trundle. The room sleeps 5. The other guest bedroom has a queen bed and could serve as a second master bedroom. Both guest bedrooms have brand new, comfortable mattresses and fine linens. There is a tastefully decorated shared bathroom with tub/shower. An additional television for DVD use only is located in the second bedroom.

About Michelle Garner

We are a large family that loves to travel. We have been to several places around the world, but always seem to find Ocean Springs is one of our favorite resting spots.

Michelle Garner purchased this house in 2009

Why Michelle Garner chose Mississippi

Our family of 5 purchased this property because of the seclusion it offered and the getaway that we were searching for. Its right outside the city and located on a natural beach so we don't have to deal with sunbathers and beach combers, just hermit crabs and pelicans! We originally purchased this property in March of 2005. Then Katrina blew in and totally wiped the original house and its foundation out to sea. We had to use navigation map with land plot to even find the site! So we rebuilt in 2009 and have our perfect beach home.

What makes this house unique

This beach house is located on an isolated part of Belle Fontaine Beach in Ocean Springs. There are only about 20-25 houses located up and down the street. We do not have any direct neighbors on either side of the home and it sits about 10 STEPS to the water. The beach is perfect for sunning and relaxing with some tunes. I enjoy getting up in the morning and taking my coffee onto the porch and watching the pelicans fly overhead and sometimes am lucky enough to see dolphins playing right off the shore. Its ideal for the family or person who really want to break from the commercial vacation and relax in quiet. Its like your own island but within 15-20 minutes to Ocean Springs historical downtown square and the casinos. Its also great because New Orleans and Mobile are both only an hour and a half away, great for day escapes. We love this place and are confidant you will too!

Quiet Tranquility

  • 5 out of 5
Actually stayed at this property on a business trip. We managed to escape the "casino hotel" atmosphere, and relax and enjoy the tranquility of this beachside home. This property left nothing to be desired. Beautiful sunsets, relaxing ocean wave sounds in the bedroom, and the opportunity to observe many water fowl off the back deck. We actually sent sunset pictures to our colleagues staying in the hotel, just to make them jealous. Michelle, the landlord, was very pleasant to work with, and seemed genuinely interested in making sure we had a great experience renting her vacation home.

Perfect Family Getaway

  • out of 5
This is the perfect getaway for families! This beach house is very nice, yet comfortable enough for smaller children. We enjoyed watching many different kinds of waterfowl from the back deck and even saw Dolphins! If you stay in the ocean side bedroom the sounds of the waves will lull you to sleep. This house comes fully stocked with all of the beach, kitchen, and housekeeping amenities you could need. It even had a pack'n'play if you're bringing a baby! I would highly recommend this home to anyone wanting to visit the area!!!

We had a great time! The weather was beautiful. We took long walks in the morning. Walked on the beach in the afternoon. We watched the sunrise and sunset each day. We also watched the porpoises playing and catching fish. Our little Jack Russell just loved running on the beach and trying to bite the waves. He also caught hermit crabs with his mouth and found other treasures that washed up on the beach. We enjoyed watching the different types of boats, shrimp boats, pogy boats, tugs and barges.

Relaxed and Enjoyed Ourselves!

  • 5 out of 5
We LOVED our stay at this beach house! It is so roomy and very kid friendly. We had 2 adults, 2 teenagers, and 2 younger children and the house never felt crowded! Very beautifully decorated and is well stocked with supplies(towels, DVDs, books, family games, kitchen utensils, beach stuff, etc.). We spent most of our time on the beach or sunning/reading on the deck. My husband fished right from the deck and caught a ray! We had great weather, very warm and enjoyed the breeze. We also got to watch a thunderstorm roll across the water with an awesome lightening show. The younger children and I had so much fun looking for shells, playing in the sand, and swimming in the ocean. We saw many fish jumping, found oodles of hermit crabs, went blue crab hunting at night, and watched the pelicans fly right over our heads! The best family vacation by far!

Owner's Response: Wow! I am so thrilled to hear that the weather and the "sealife" cooperated with you this trip! It sounds like the kids had a blast too, and I know that's a hard task to complete with kids now days:) We hope that you will consider returning to our home in Ocean Springs the next time you are thinking about a vacation. Thank you for the wonderful comments and I am sure others looking for a great get a way will find them helpful as well!

Quiet Get Away

  • 4 out of 5
This house was very nice and comfortable. House and location was very kid friendly. Very quiet and secluded, other than cars passing by on the street we hardly ever saw people. The beach was not very big so you can't take long walks but it is great for sitting and building sand castles. There is a lot of debris on the beach and the water is very muddy. Overall it great place is you are looking for a quiet get away and to have good quality family time. The house was well stocked with movies and games in which we used due to rainy days.

Owner's Response: Glad you had a good time despite the rain. We do have a long beach to walk, the neighbors have built a pier, but once you duck under it, the beach is a great place for a morning stroll, sorry you weren't able to do that. I guess with the rain, you wouldn't have gotten that far anyway!! We try to have enough for families so that kids can get back to great board games and the adults can sit on the porch and relax. Please stay again when the weather is cooperating, the front deck is lovely for sunning!
