Overview

About the property

Located on the gulf coast of Mississippi, Waveland beach is a small, quiet town, that was devastated by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. The regrowth of the town shows in its beautiful white sand beaches, the paved trail that lines the beach, and the beautiful homes newly built along the beach. Old Town Bay St. Louis, just two miles down the beach, was named one of the "coolest small towns in America" by Budget Travel Magazine and Coastal Living Magazine called it one of the top ten small beach towns in the country. There is plenty to do for all ages within five miles of our property including the wave pool and nature trails at Buccaneer State Park, the Hollywood Casino, new marina just built for boaters, shopping, and both upscale and casual restaurants. You can also just relax on the white sandy beaches only a minute walk from the house. Although it is a small town, there are grocery stores located only two miles away for anything you may need.

This beach house, with 5000 square feet under roof is perfect for 3-4 couples, girls getaway, or up to three families with children. The three bedrooms each have a double bed and the loft that has three single beds and a double bed. The master bedroom has a jacuzzi tub and shower. This raised property provides great views of the beach from the four decks. The first level accommodates the three bedrooms and the second level's open space floor plan is perfect for larger groups to gather. The fully equipped kitchen is great for making large meals and plenty of room for everyone to dine. The lower level under the house has seating and a bar area to sit and relax and feel the gulf breezes.

Come enjoy all that Waveland has to offer while enjoying the amenities of our great beach house!!!!

About Ed Desobry/Cathy Pickel

My family has been going the the area since 1945 when my great grandmother purchased a vacation home. The house survived many hurricane's but after Katrina we were forced to rebuild. My Dad decided to move closer to the beach. In 2007 we purchased the current location and began building a new vacation home that we could enjoy for years to come. We completed the home in 2009. We decided to allow others to enjoy the home and lease it as a vacation rental.

Ed Desobry/Cathy Pickel purchased this house in 2007

Why Ed Desobry/Cathy Pickel chose Mississippi

After being in Bay Saint Louis in Cedar Point for over 60 years my family decided to move closer to the beach right down the street to Waveland. Having the beach to enjoy the gulf has been a great decision. When everyone gets together everyone enjoys going down to the white sandy beach.

What makes this house unique

The over 5000 square feet under roof house has many indoor and outdoor spaces. With three bedrooms and a large loft this house can accommodate up to 11 people. We spend countless hours on the ground floor enjoying the family time or having our morning breakfast on one the porch over looking the Gulf.

Our Weekend Stay

  • 4 of 5

The home was well kept, close to beach, nice quiet area in which myself and my partner will want to visit more often. We had a great time, our desire for the weekend was to rest & be lazy tourist, this was the place to do it at. Thanks very much for your hospitality and quick response in allowing us to stay their.

great place for large families

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a christmas weekend with extended family. It was a great choice! During the day the kids could walk to the beach and play football while the parents sit back and relax. At night we lit the fire pit and lounged around the down stairs outdoor party area. It really was a great time and think this will be the house we come back to again.

Perfect home for a quick getaway

  • 5 of 5

I took a small service group for a weekend retreat from New Orleans, and the house was perfect. So many beds, so many beautiful porches, lovely view, amazingly relaxing. A perfect weekend, can't wait to come back next year. The owners were very accommodating, and the house is really incredible. It's a big house, so 11 people fit comfortably for sleeping, sharing meals, and gathering inside and out on the many porches and patios.

A great weekend getaway!

  • 4 of 5

A group of friends and I decided to get out of the city for the weekend and we found this wonderful home available on vrbo and booked it right away. The house is lovely and the owners are made check in and check out very easy and straight forward. The house is literally a half a block from the beach which was wonderful. I wish we could have stayed longer and fully utilized the downstairs porch/car port lounge area (so fn and inviting!).

If I am being 100%, however, we did find the kitchen a little under supplied. Not a big deal, but it did take a bit longer to get evertyhing made with limited pans and such...again, not that big of a deal.

If you are looking for a great place to spend a week or just a few days don't overlook this great house. Oh! and the living room is a wonderful room with lots of space to play games or lounge around and catch up with your friends! (I love the open layout!)

Thank you to the owners for opening up your home to us, we had a great time!
