About Owner/Manager

I Am a Transplant from Pennsylvania and Have Lived in the Bay Since 1998 and in Mississippi Since 1984. I Have Sailed As a Hobby for Over 30 Years and Own a Sailboat That Resides in the Bsl Marina. I Also Work at Sea On Navy Ships a Couple of Months a Year. This is How the Name the Sailor's Retreat Came to Be.

Owner/Manager purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Owner/Manager chose Mississippi

Old Town Bay St Louis is a Great Place to Live. Everything is Within Walking Distance...restaurants, Shops, Beach, Marina, Bars and Special Events.

What makes this cottage unique

I Just Love the Laid Back Life Style in the Bay. As You Get to Know the Town and the People I Am Sure You Will Come to Love It Too.

Treat - the Sailors Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Sailors Retreat was definitely a treat. Everything tidy and clean, very cheery and inviting. The screen porch great while the pooch and the spouse slept-ah quiet time. Nice walk to town- walked everywhere leaving the wheels behind. If you walk at night the town closes up early you will have the cool evening breeze to yourselves. Local breakfast places Mockingbird Café’ and Buttercup very nice early in morning. The complimentary coffee was a nice treat too. Will certainly keep this ole’ place in mind for future visits. Thank you for a nice time – Val M.

Loved this house and it was one of the cleanest I have ever rented. My dogs loved it too and the owner thanked me for leaving it so tidy. She was very accommodating and friendly. Would definitely rent this again!

Terrible Experience

  • 1 of 5

The house was decorated in a very beachy style,. As we walked in the door we were greeted by the heavy smell of mustiness. I looked around and went out with our dogs to the fenced back yard. Very tiny and overgrown and very dirty.

The house itself was filthy. If it had been cleaned, it must have been months ago. I got ready to make supper and got a baking dish out of the oven drawer and found it filled with rodent feces. We bought some disposable pans and dishes. There was a thick layer of dust over everything. One of the dog's tennis balls rolled under the daybed/sofa and that's where I found the roaches, both dead and alive.

The outside doors were old and dirty and warped and did not lock properly. The neighborhood was not the best so this was a worry for me. I stayed up all night and we left at dawn.

I have never been in a more dirty and uncomfortable property on a trip. If this is what HomeAway approves then I will never be working with them again and will warn all of our friends.

To say that this was a disappointment would be a complete understatement. It was a nightmare. I would never let a guest rent a property in this condition.

Owner's Response: It is unfortunate that you did not enjoy my cottage. This is a bad time of year for flying termites in our area. They will come in through cracks and open doors even in newer structures. Kind regards, Suzanne
