Family Friendly, Two Miles From The Gulf and a short drive to 7 Biloxi casinos
About Karen Hall
In 1965, our father transferred to Keesler Air Force Base from Amarillo, Texas where I was born and raised. I was in High School, my brother in college. Our parents had our home, Vaneaton Place built in 1965. It was one of the first built in the whole subdivision. The coast looked a lot different back then. It was considered the hot spot for vacation and weekend get away. Lots of nightclubs, beach, amusement park, miniature golf.... underground slot machines and gambling. My parents had fallen in love with the Mississippi Coast while on a vacation trip a few years earlier. Hurricane Betsy hit the first month we moved to the coast! What a greeting and what a mess along the beach. Nothing compared to 1969, Hurricane Camille. That really wiped out the coastline. It gave us lots of stories to tell and lots of rebuilding to do. Our home, Vaneaton Place, had no damage. Just trees uprooted. We stayed in the house during the storm. The glass sliding door buckled back and forth from the pressure of the storm. It passed during the night hours and the darkness during the eye of the storm was so eerie that I'll never forget it. Many lots along the scenic beach drive stayed empty for years and years. Life went on. The coast built back. We grew up, had families and moved away but Biloxi, Mississippi remained home for our parents. Hurricane Katrina came along in 2005 and really devastated our beautiful coast all the way from Alabama to Louisiana. Our home actually had about 1 foot of water come in so we lost almost everything. Our Mom never was able to move back in but she did pick out all the colors that you see painted throughout the home. Some of the furnishings are the original. They are all special memories for us. Our Mom loved her home and yard. It is a very special place to us and to our children who have always had it in their lives. A place full of wonderful memories.
Karen Hall purchased this House in 1965
Why Karen Hall chose Saint Martin
We wanted to keep the house in our family because it is such a part of us. A place we can go to and visit and a place that we can open up and share to travelers who understand how much it mean to us. A place we still call home.
What makes this House unique
We are in a quiet area but just 10 min drive to the beach. There are so many places to shop and eat within minutes of the house including a large movie theatre. There are 7 casinos within a 10 to 15 min drive. Of course fishing and golfing all over the place... Who could ask for a more relaxing place to go. Rent a kayak and explore the Tchoutacabouffa River – as soon as you learn how to pronounce it. If that’s not quite your style, stroll through the shops of The Promenade or indulge in local cuisine packed with seafood. If the kids are hoping for a break from an adventure-packed trip, catch a movie or have a bowling night with the family.

Quiet home away from home!
We enjoyed our stay. The home was very well supplied with anything we needed. The neighborhood was quiet and made our stay enjoyable. We were not far from the beach, the casinos, and lots of fresh seafood. It was easy access to the interstate. We enjoyed many of the local restaurants. We enjoyed one of the jigsaw puzzles too. The owner was very friendly and helpful.
Thanks so much Sandra for staying with us and I am so glad that you enjoyed your visit and you had a safe trip back home. I hope you will come again soon.
Great Little Stay!
The girls and I had a great time at this place! We did not use the tv at all and we pulled out some of their puzzles for our down time! We enjoyed this place a lot!
I am so glad you enjoyed your visit to Biloxi and hope you will plan to stay with us again.
I really enjoyed my stay at this property. The inside was beautifully (but practically) furnished. The living area was ample size for all of us to gather for board games and movie night. The bedrooms were very comfortable and each had a pretty personal touch to them. The property made you feel like you were at your home-away-from-home! Unfortunately, due to some rain, we were unable to enjoy the large porch area outside.
I would definitely recommend this property and look forward to booking another stay there in the future! Special thanks to the owner for opening up their home for us!
I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay at VanEaton Place and hope that you will remember us on your next trip to the beautiful Mississippi Gulf Coast.
A Wonderful Place to Be
This not my first time staying at VanEaton Place, nor will it be my last. I felt very at home here. It's so close to everything! Less than 15 minutes away from beaches, casinos, and tons of good food and shopping. The beds are SO SO SO comfortable. I had a few other guests with me and we all had the most amazing time lounging around watching movies and hanging out on the patio. The owner is amazing and she made booking this a breeze. I truly cannot wait to go back to my new favorite home in Biloxi.
I am so glad that you and your friends enjoyed your stay with us. I look forward to having you come again on your next visit to the beautiful Mississippi Gulf Coast.
This house was just as it looked in the pictures, cozy and comfortable. It worked well for our family of 4. Close enough to everything also. We had minor issues which we discussed with the owner Karen and she was very apologetic. We would rent again on our next trip to Biloxi.
Looking forward to our next stay!!!!!
I booked this lovely home for a family vacation. I had 5 young adults aged 15, 19-20. The home was very thing we expected and more. It was conveniently located close to everything we wanted to do during our stay and gave me peace of mind when my young people needed space to venture out on their own. It was very relaxing and accommodating. Thanks for making our vacation great!!!
Thanks Jennifer. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay and that you had a wonderful birthday. Now you know where to stay on your trips to the beautiful Mississippi Gulf Coast!!
