Overview

About the property

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 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. 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 4. 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 property 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!

Great views right on the water!

  • 4 of 5

We went to Mississippi for a cousins wedding. The house was great and the views were beautiful. The front room was ours and opening the windows with the waves 10 feet away made for a great nights sleep. The marsh views on the back side were awesome as well. We are such wild partiers that every night we would put one of the provided puzzles together. Really no major complaints, but the first night there the kitchen table almost came crashing down on us when doing a puzzle and there were no extra trash bags provided. Overall we loved our stay and will surely use VRBO for future vacations.

Wonderful place to vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice house, great view, right on the beach! We fit 4 adults and 2 kids very comfortably here during our weekend get away. Very spacious​. Beds are super comfy. Beach view is amazing. Not a lot of neighbors which provides nice privacy.

Only negatives - there was quite a bit of animal hair throughout the house and the water leaves a weird feeling on you after your shower.

Owner's Response: We appreciate you taking the time to review our property in Ocean Springs. I am so sorry that you had any animal hair around the home. I will make sure that is addressed with the housekeeping staff. As for the shower, we are out of the city limits, therefore, we are on well water. That is a bit different from water from the city, so we can't do much about that but appreciate that you still enjoyed the view and the home. Please don't let the well water keep you from returning! We would love to have you consider our home in the future.

Quiet area and beautiful house!

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful house and scenery! Not much of a swim/ beach area but still had lots to do. We fished, caught and released crabs and hermit crabs!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Yes, unfortunately our water is just too shallow for actual swimming, but perfect for wading around and looking for ocean life! We are so glad you had a nice time fishing and relaxing at the home and we hope you choose Ocean Springs in the future.

Was what we hoped for, great views and atmospher...

  • 4 of 5

The property was as advertised, great sunsets and sunrises, that's all we were looking for, never used the water, wildlife around the area was amazing. Local golf course, St Andrews is now closed but the guys at Shell Landing- 12 minute drive were great and the course this year was really good shape with the good weather. Wanted to re book for 2018 but someone beat me to it...All in all a very good stay and property.

Ocean Springs Month Long Stay

  • 4 of 5

The house was very spacious and easy to make yourself at home with the surroundings. We were disappointed that the gulf was very silty and dirty and that there was no beach We were able to get out most days and walk the paved road for our exercise. We loved the Walter Anderson Museum, National Seashore where we saw an adult alligator and a small one. We visited Mobile and loved the older big houses, Springhill College Campus and the awesome living oaks. Walked the walk way on Front Beach Street, in Ocean Springs and enjoyed seeing all the huge houses. Overall, it was a great month.

Great Place to Stay!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this house! The house itself was beautiful and the kitchen was fabulously-stocked! We stayed for a month and had a very relaxing time. My husband fished from the lot next door. He caught a good-sized red drum on his first day out. Unfortunately, the water level is pretty low, so he didn't get any bites during his other many attempts. We were able to walk out about 200 yards and the water was still at our ankles, so it is definitely a beautiful gulf view, but not a good fishing/swimming spot.

The beach from the pictures is pretty much gone, as the water/shore line has changed drastically. It is pretty neat that the water comes up and it seems as though you are sitting on the ocean when you look out, but it is unfortunate that so much of the beach is gone now.

Walking the road/beach daily was fabulous and the sunsets were gorgeous! There was no bayou access along the road, so we didn't get a chance to try fishing/crabbing on the bayou.

The dvd and board game selection at the house was pretty good, which was a good thing for an extended stay, as the high-speed internet is capped. We had hoped to watch Netflix, etc on the trip, but with a data cap, that wasn't possible, unfortunately. Once you hit the cap, the internet speed crawled.

The restaurants in the area were great and pretty reasonably-priced. We also enjoyed the fact that there was a Walmart close by (10-15 minute drive, or so), so grocery trips were easy.

Overall, we had a wonderful time and are glad we visited Ocean Springs, MS! We loved most everything about our trip, but would have changed a few things, had we been able to: The fishing/crabbing was not what we were expecting, the pictures of the beach beach from the ad is not representative of how it actually is, the internet speed was very slow once the data cap was reached, and we did not like the tap water for drinking so we purchased tons of bottled water instead. The things that we loved: the house was well-stocked (lovely sheets, towels, and nice kitchen amenities), the beds were amazingly comfortable, the washer/dryer worked nicely, there were beautiful sunsets most nights, we saw dolphins a few times in the gulf, restaurants in the area were good, the road was very private and everything in the house bred relaxation.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! We are so glad you had a relaxing escape from the cold. Ocean Springs is definitely the place to come and get away from it all. I am sorry you had a few negatives regarding the stay, but when you have a home in a quiet remote place, getting WiFi is a luxury as we don't even have cable (Directv only) or sewer. The water, I agree, is less than preferable as it is well water, but again, we are away from it all, so we are "away from it all". Ha! We hope you enjoyed your stay enough to return and hope you have wonderful memories of your vacation.
