With a full wrap-around covered porch, plenty of outdoor space and within walking distance to the beach the cottage is the perfect starting point for anyone desiring to experience the excitement of the Coast. The beauty of miles of Coastline is just blocks away that include a boat harbor with charter boats, great fishing, sunbathing, jet skis and unlimited seasonal events. Outstanding restaurants such as Steve’s Marina, Darwell’s, Oyster Reef, Little Ray’s Seafood and countless others are all within walking distance of the cottage. Located in the heart of Long Beach within walking distance to the beach, the quaint downtown, park with splash pad, famous Friendship Oak, University of Southern Mississippi (coast campus) and great restaurants you can stroll to any location within minutes. The cottage with its’ full kitchen, full laundry, 2 bedroom, 2 bath, and spacious interior has the comfort and warmth that you would expect of a family beach cottage. The large porch with its' cool Gulf breeze will always welcome you back after a day of exploring the unlimited sights along the coast. A short drive provides you with casinos, nightlife, malls and shopping centers. Or you could take a leisurely day trip to New Orleans, Ship Island or an unlimited number of historic sites. The cottage sits in one the nicest areas of the coast in an established neighborhood that is very popular due to its’ proximity to the beach. The peaceful and quiet area which is also a designated bike trail adds to the experience of visiting a beach front community. The comfortable cottage is a great starting point whether it is for a short beach get away or a month for a snowbird escaping the cold. We welcome you to our Coastal Breeze Cottage!

About Harold & Claire

Your Hosts: Ruth & Don

Ruth and Don relocated to the Mississippi Gulf Coast after Hurricane Katrina to assist a daughter who lived in the area. Ruth was a long time business owner who operated a 26 room B&B in Texas along with other businesses. Don was an owner of construction companies his entire life also in Texas. Once arriving to the Coast they found this family cottage that had been devastated by Katrina and purchased the cottage. With Don’s background as a contractor and with their family in mind, they rebuilt the cottage (larger than the original and upgraded all the features) so their family would have a beach cottage along the Coast. During the time the cottage was being rebuilt they fell in love with the beauty of the Mississippi Coast and decided to settle here. In 2015 they decided to return to Texas due to family but wanted to retain their cottage near the beach for the family and made the decision to list the cottage as a vacation rental so others could enjoy the Gulf Coast as they had. Ruth & Don’s family welcome you to their Coastal Breeze Cottage and hope you enjoy the Coast as much as they have over the years.

Harold (on-line manager) was asked by the couple to manage the online rental of their cottage since he also owns a cottage along the Mississippi Gul Coast. Although Harold will be your on-line contact regarding reservations, Ruth & Don (the owners) maintain their cottage and will be your contact during your stay at the Coastal Breeze.

Harold & Claire purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Harold & Claire chose Long Beach

Ruth and Don chose this cottage since it was right in the heart of the quaint community of Long Beach. A short stroll puts you at the beach, downtown, parks, great restaurants and anything you would need. The cottage is located in a very desirable neighborhood along the entire Mississippi Coast with the warm gulf breeze, quiet street, safe environment and wonderful people who reside in the area. Ruth refers to it as "heaven on earth" to be at the cottage!

What makes this cottage unique

The cottage is within walking distance of the beach, the rebuilt downtown of Long Beach, the new city park with a splash pad-live entertainment-outdoor movies-most of the community's celebrations, the boat harbor, etc.,etc. The cottage is in the heart of the whole community!

Very clean spacious house located in a quiet neighborhood. Long Beach is truly a friendly city

  • 5 of 5

Just a short walk to the ocean and lots of great restaurants within a 30 minutes drive. About 20 casinos intermingled in that same area. The Island View is less than 5 minutes away and has the best breakfast buffet ever!

The kitchen is supplied with all the accouterments one needs if motivated to make a home cooked meal. And the bathtub is the next best thing to getting a therapeutic massage. The bed and recliner also have massages.

Loved it, wish we stayed longer

  • 5 of 5

Great house, love the privacy and quiet of the split floor plan with baths on each side. It's 3 short blocks to the shops of Long Beach, plus fast food is close in a rush. It is only about 5 minutes to Island View or 15 to Hollywood casinos. The house has Dish in 3 rooms plus Cable internet so there is something to do, even on a rainy day. We'll have to do it again, maybe 2 weeks next time instead of 1.

Quiet neighborhood with good central location.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting a house versus a hotel. Plenty of space where you could relax and chill. It is centrally located to things to do along Beach Blvd. We ate at Steve's, great food, very friendly staff and great views of the harbor. We also ate at Darwell's-best etouffe you ever had. Pirate's cove, great sandwiches and it won't break the family bank. I would stay here again. Quiet neighborhood and a raparound porch for sitting and resting.
