About Sheila Riso

The Riso's, are from New Orleans LA. and like many NOLA residents , my grandfather Dominic Riso had an old fashioned camp on the beach in Pass Christain in the 50's ... I grew up hearing stories about the coast and my fathers years at Gulf Coast Military Academy soooo, I guess I have my Grandfathers Gulf Coast fever and have planned for years to move to the Coast. I purchased this property in Bay St Louis August 2013 and completed renovations May 2015 keeping as much of the old as I could while adding the new. This is an owner occupied property with guest suites. I love Bay St Louis and will help you in any way I can.

Why Sheila Riso chose Bay Saint Louis

I also bought this property because I love older homes and Pink Heron was built in 1938. It has beautiful patina hard wood floors and the original charm of that period construction. It is a typical American House with 9ft ceilings, crown molding and solid tight construction. It's raised on Piers and did not Flood or sustain any damage during Katrina or any other storm. I have renovated many homes and this is my favorite so far.

What makes this guest house unique

Bay St Louis is a " Place Apart" ... Walk/bike ride to Main street on the beach ... Fun place to shop for clothes, local artist work & antiques, Second Saturday Art Walk every month ...Lots of Festivals... Lots of Restaurants for breakfast, lunch, dinner ... Bay St Louis has a real Artisan Bakery on Main Street and they serve breakfast too ....Lots of fun events at X Mass...Cemetery Tour on Halloween...Casinos in Bay St Louis all the way Biloxi ... Local Fishing...Great Seafood...New Tea Room for Lunch on Uhlman - adjacent street... YOGA 7 days a week all levels every day ... Massage therapist on Main... AND Pedicabs ... want could be more fun that taking a Pedicab Tour...The Mockingbird Cafe on Second St has great Baristas' and was voted best coffee house in Ms: they host open mike nights, a monthly art market and a fun run every thursday -- most saturdays live music. ( tip - kid friendly , parents bring your kids but Sr can and will enjoy Date Nite! Everyone is friendly and Bay St Louis is a real community. There is so much to do in the on the Coast ... but, it you stay and relax in the "Bay "you will come again and again.

It was a perfect little place for my husband and I to get away for a few days!! We were missing an HDMI cord for TV and with a couple texts the issue was resolved quickly. I will be looking to stay here again on our next visit.
