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.

Martin’s place was everything we hoped and more. Although there are other homes around this house sits on a very large lot and It is very private. It rained a lot the week we were in the area and it was nice that we could go under the house and sit outside without getting wet.
The beach is absolutely beautiful! It was cold when we went but it was still just so beautiful and clean. We drove down to the beach but in nicer weather it would be a nice bike ride or long walk.
We were welcomed with fudge and fresh flowers along with a well stocked home. You do not need to bring linens or dishes as there is plenty!
Thank you Martin for offering a nice home for a great price!
Jennifer, thank you it means a lot to me that my guests enjoy the house. I loved your kids drawings in the guest book. Please come back anytime.
Wonderful experience, beautiful Home!
This home is beautiful, the pictures do not do it justice. It is much more spacious than what it seems on the outside, and the owner goes out of the way to make you feel at home. Although a storm made us cut our stay short, it was an amazing experience, and if I were ever to get back down to the Gulf again, I would definitely stay here again. Thanks for a wonderful time.
This is a terrific home-away-from-home property! We would definitely book again!
We had the best time at your house! The owners are so welcoming! We were greeted with giant cookies on the counter and fresh flowers on the table. We couldn’t have felt more at home. The proximity to the beach and surrounding areas was great! We made the short trip to NOLA, but we were ready to come back to the house and relax. We all loved the beds, so comfy! We are so happy with our stay! Wish it could have been a little longer. Maybe next time...
Great Family Vacation
My Brother is stationed in Meridian so we decided to meet here. This was the perfect place! We have three young sons and we all had a great time. We visited the NASA museum and toured the base. We were lucky enough to see an experimental engine being tested, which was amazing. We also took a day trip to New Orleans and had a great time at the aquarium, on the river walk, and walking around the French Quarter. The beach was a close ride (or bike) away. This was our first time to the Gulf and I was surprised at how calm and warm the water were. We planned to be there in the morning and evenings to catch the high and low tides. We also took the tour to ship island and had a blast (bring sunscreen)finding shells and playing in the waves. The water there was clear and we saw lots of sea life, which was cool once you got used to it. We also learned a lot about Wave land 10+ years post Katrina. Definitely made the whole trip more rich once we understood the impact to this small community. Great food options too, we did the casino buffet, and found some great crayfish at Taranto's seafood in Biloxi. Did a lot of cooking too. Fully stocked kitchen had everything you can think of and the grill worked great! Walmart is just 2 miles away. Great air conditioning. It was HOT but always felt great to come inside with all the fans. Having 3 bathrooms was wonderful. The two masters made it feel very private and the kids loved the bunk beds, which were very comfortable and there were lots of extra pillows and blankets. I have stayed in a lot of beach houses, but I have to say this one really felt like home :) Martin is so nice, he helped us plan before we got there, was always quick to answer questions, and checked in during the week to make sure we were OK. The Clover cottage goes the extra mile! We used, the bikes, the chairs, the umbrellas (all in excellent condition).TV, wifi, and the house is much larger than it appears in the photos. Thanks to everyone who left tips in the guest register we got a lot of good ideas from you (like the snow cones up the street). We wanted a relaxing vacation and this was the place to find it.
Perfect for our family!
We loved the Clover Cottage. The house was spacious & open so we could all participate in watching TV, playing games at the table which was big enough for everyone to eat at & play games, or watching the kids goof off. The kitchen was well equipped & big enough to move around in. We loved the outdoor shower for rinsing the sand from feet & little ones! Far away enough from the crowded beaches but close enough to go there if you wanted. We tended to play at the beach closest to the house which was like having our own private beach! When we return to this area, we will book here again.
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.
Close to the beach 0.6 miles. Short drive on Beach Boulevard to Bay St. Louis and to the Silver Slipper Casino. About 45 minutes to New Orleans and 30 minutes to Gulfport.
