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!

Quite

  • 4 of 5

This was a great retreat. We are a Coast Guard family and my hubby has been in MS since Feb. and only home 5 weeks since Oct. 2014. This was a time for the kids and myself and him to get away for a few days from people and electronics and just relax. It was a shame to see all the houses that are still gone, but it gave this place a buffer zone from others and it was a wonderfully relaxing time. The weather was great, the house is awesome. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because of erosion from Katrina you cannot go for long walks on the beach. We enjoyed watching all the wildlife ( pelicans, pink flamingo, bald eagle, momma fox and 2 babies, hermit crabs), swimming, and fishing. The house has everything we needed.

Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

This was a girls weekend getaway for Mother's Day. It was quiet, secluded and beautiful! We saw foxes, pelicans and dolphins. The house was decorated well and in the perfect location. It is a short distance to Biloxi if you are looking for the best of both worlds. Very memorable weekend and all of us want to go back again!

This was our second trip to this area and it was a great stay. No problems at all. Our grandchildren enjoyed playing in the sand and fishing from the beach.

All went well on our 3 night stay, clean rooms and everything that was said about the house was true, I even caught a catfish from the porch and on the last day we got up early enough to see the sunrise and also some dolphins. We look forward to our next trip.

Secluded Personal Beach

  • 4 of 5

Nice place. Exactly as advertised. No homes on either side, so felt like your private beach. Weather was sunny, but very cold, as was the water, so we didn't really spend a lot of time in the sand or take long walks for that matter. But the view is cool, and the upper deck is right over the water. Get ready to see bookoo stars at night! Spacious living area and kitchen, nicely appointed. Master bath is luxurious. Owner is easy to work with too.

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying with us in Ocean Springs. Mississippi weather is still chilly in February, but the alternative, especially this year, is much colder!! We have a beautiful beach and I'm glad you were able to enjoy the clear nights and quiet reserve of the area. Please visit again when you can walk along the beach or sun on the deck!

Quiet Tranquility

  • 5 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.

Owner's Response: We were glad to have you and the crew stay during your work vacation. As the wife of someone who has to stay in a hotel or casino every week, I'm glad we could give you the experience of Ocean Springs and the relaxation it greeted you with at the end of the day. Please look us up if you need to stay in the area in the future.
