About LS Hymel

Originally from New Orleans, I moved with my family to the area when I was young and grew up less than three miles from this precious little house, where my grandparents retired. I still live close by in nearby Long Beach. It has meant a lot to me to restore and remodel this home, making it 'new' again. It is my pleasure to make it available to others to enjoy.

LS Hymel purchased this cottage in 2010

Why LS Hymel chose Mississippi

This property has been in my family for a number of years --- my grandparents retired here, and my father lived here, too. I acquired it in 2010 and named it Cocoa's Cottage, after my dad's canine companion.

What makes this cottage unique

This cottage is completely fenced in--- a great place for children or pets to play. Also, it is wheel-chair friendly. Are you a musician? This cottage has a spinet piano for you to enjoy. Cable, wireless internet, stainless appliances, jalousie windows, ceiling fans, oak trees, spacious front porch and back patio for grilling. Parking for up to four cars and/or a boat.

Quiet street close to beach

  • 4 of 5

We travel with our Labs and it is nice to find a house that is not only dog friendly but works well. Two bedroom ranch style with tile floors, perfect for our needs. The yard is fenced front and back with 3-4 foot chain link. Easy to let the dogs "air out" in a fenced yard. The house is on a quiet street about two city blocks from the beach. I do not believe the beach is dog friendly. It is close to the border of Pass Christian and Long Beach with lots of restaurants a short drive.

Clean and Comfortable. Just as described and just what we were looking for.

  • 5 of 5

In town for a quick visit and selected this location because it was pet friendly and close to beach and the activities that we had planned. We didn't end up bringing our pet but the yard is fenced front and back and it would have been perfect if we had. House was clean and comfortable. Quiet street and everything you need for a comfortable stay. We would stay here again.

Just recently I stayed at Cocoa's Cottage in Pass Christian for my third visit. Lauren is a pleasure with whom to do business; she is professional & ethical, & offers a very reasonable rental rate for all the value one receives. She is a wonderful host, who keeps Cocoa's Cottage well maintained & immaculate.

I consider Cocoa's Cottage my home away from home, & Lauren a new friend. I engage in considerable travel, & prefer renting a cottage house or apartment with lots of vintage charm, in a residential neighborhood, over staying in a beach condo or hotel room. One gets more of a taste of the local culture staying in a neighborhood of locals. Whenever I have needed assistance, Lauren responds in timely fashion. I enjoy cooking, & having a picnic in her shady backyard, or the front porch, watching all the exercise enthusiasts. The kitchen is well equipped for fixing simple meals; I do bring my own chef knife & cast iron skillet.

Cocoa's Cottage is in a prime location, with the beach within walking distance, New Orleans 60 miles, & all the sights on the MS Gulf Coast within easy reach, less than a hour drive on beautiful, scenic highway 90. Cocoa's Cottage is a perfect retreat for me, & I will be returning in September for the Seafood Festival. I heartily recommend staying at Cocoa's Cottage for an enjoyable vacation. Bring your pet; they are welcome too!
