Great location, nice beach front

  • 4 of 5

This house was at a great location with the crossover being paved, but if you're wanting privacy- that might not be a good thing. The inside was roomy, we really liked the separation of rooms on both sides of the house. It seemed that one side was always warm, though. Picnic table needs to be removed, but other than that- we enjoyed our stay! will stay here again!

It was exactly right for us!!

  • 4 of 5

We had a group of eight adults and four children and didn't feel crowded. The front room never felt crowded or cluttered even with all of our stuff. The kitchen was well stocked with pots and pans. Enough for us to cook for the twelve of us.

The house is just like it looks in the photos. No unpleasant surprises greeted us as we roamed around picking out rooms. The upper bunks didn't have rails though, so we didn't feel safe putting the 7 year old on a bunk. That just meant she got to sleep with gramma and papa. She didn't mind.

The view from the deck was amazing!! The gulf was so beautiful and other than the burm, there was an unobstructed view.

The first day we were there it rained, so we played on the deck and on the patio area underneath the deck. There was room to play catch and the kids could run, which they desperately needed after the 14 hours in the cars the day before.

We went into New Orleans two days, the drive was a little long, about two hours each way, but worth it. Don't let being 100 miles south of NO stop you from renting, it's an easy drive into the city.

The last two days we spent on the beach. It is just over the burm and has a brick walking path that takes you right to it. Just don't walk on it barefooted, it is a little uncomfortable on the feet.

We had a campfire and roasted hot dogs. Flew kites and played ball. The grandkids played in the water some, but just at the very edge, and with parents at their sides, the surf was pretty strong. Sand castles were made and destroyed. This will be a vacation that will be remembered for a long time.

Thank you Lou and Belle for making the Milky Way the perfect vacation spot for our family!

(The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that one night we needed the heater on and it only worked on one side of the house. And the washing machine, that looked really old, stopped working on the last day. Both I'm sure will be fixed before the next guests arrive.)

We really enjoyed our stay! Perfect location for us, ample sleeping for our extended family.

  • 5 of 5

We certainly enjoyed staying at the Milky Way. Perfect location for our family - having the dune walk-over was great with a toddler as well as the beach equipment needed for a day at the beach. 4 full bathrooms and 4 bedrooms was excellent for our extended family. Hope to stay here again!
