About Martin Docherty

U.S. Army Colonel, Go between Ft. Hood TX and Gulfport.

Martin Docherty purchased this house in 2013

Why Martin Docherty chose Waveland

Great location, new post Katrina house.

What makes this house unique

The kitchen counter and bench in the kitchen were made from a pecan tree that was knocked down by Katrina. The original home was completely destroyed, the rebuild was a labor of love. The name " Clover Cottage " comes from my great friend Chris Clover who rebuilt after Katrina and sold the house to me. I named the house in his honor.

The house was beautiful! Super spacious and cozy all at once!beautifully decorated!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our visit! The house was so clean! It was beautifully decorated! We were so comfortable! There were 9 adults on this trip with me! We all slept comfortably! The post says no wifi but there is wifi! We ended up being rained in Saturday but there were board games available so we cooked and had a game night! I am sooo thankful Martin allowed my friends and I to use his home for my birthday trip! Thanks sooooo much! We WILL definitely be returning!

Owner's Response: I am glad that you enjoyed your stay. Yes it did rain a lot on Saturday, tropical downpour. But I am delighted that the board games were fun. You are all welcome back as guests anytime. Martin

The owners did an amazing job of making sure our vacation was perfect. The house was roomy and had everything we needed. It was a very quite place and easy to find. We enjoyed the beach that was never busy.

Better than we imagined! Loads of space, perfect for our family.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Clover Cottage. The rooms are huge, beds comfortable, the deck and under house great to relax, close to the beach and ocean front...the Waveland/Bay St. Louis area are lovely and peaceful. Short drive to New Orleans and Gulfport. The house was an ideal homebase for us as we ran, and a perfect home to return to. We are already plotting our return and would DEFINITELY stay here again!

Exactly as described, but better!

  • 5 of 5

Martin and the property managers went out of their way to make us feel really at home over the holidays of 2017. A welcome card and flowers plus a tiny potted Christmas tree helped Santa figure out where to find us, which was a real concern for the grandkids! Clean, bright, well-appointed rooms, baths, kitchen and living. Great linens and plenty of them. The listing said no WIFI but that's not the case -- good reception throughout our stay. Not walking distance to the beach if you are a grandma like me but a very short car ride -- maybe 5 min or so. It was too cold to do much outside but the barbeque and outdoor fireplace would be great during the spring, summer or fall (and even winter if it hadnt rained) Having the house elevated gave the kids a huge covered area to play outside even in the rain. Such a luxury for everyone to have their own bathroom! No need to face others in the morning til you are ready. Double luxury -- there were two working coffee makers, which with five coffee drinkers in the house meant nobody had to wait for a second cup. Spices, condiments, etc were also provided and much appreciated and the "welcome" bucket of fudge lasted us the full week we were there. It was a quick drive to our relatives for visiting and lots of museums etc to entertain the kids during the day. We would gladly stay again should the opportunity arise. Great location for us, clean accomodations and everything needed to settle in quickly and enjoy the area.
