Quaint and Comfy!

  • 5 of 5

If early morning walks with you significant other along the sandy shores of the Mississippi Gulf are of interest to you, then look no further. This little gem sits along the coastal shores of Mississippi in Long Beach - nestled between Bay Saint Louis and Biloxi (as reference points). It is literally less than a block to walk to the the Gulf. It is quiet and relaxing. The one bedroom has all the amenities needed from the shower to the commode.

If you are a little self-conscious about your routine, you might have to excuse your roomy to the outside while you take care of business. With that said, it is charming and our host was more than personable and accommodating.

Exactly as described, and Ms. Jocelyn is an absolute sweetheart!

  • 5 of 5

Nice and clean, the small pool was perfect for soaking, the fire pit was a great plus and easy to operate (gas fire), and the location was very nice. Off the road enough that you’re not too bothered by traffic, but still close enough to feel the breeze and enjoy the view of the gulf. The hammock on the front porch was probably my favorite aspect!

Owner's Response: Dear Russell, Thank you for your kind words. You were an absolute delight and I was so impressed by your insistence on pitching in to help me clean the pool and its surrounding area. That was above and beyond what I would have expected of a guest of mine. I want you to know that you are welcome to spend time here, anytime you'd like. Wishing you success on your exam; I know you will do well. Yours truly, Jocelyn

We had so much fun on our trip. The room was perfect for our first anniversary stay. So much fun in the pool and on the bikes. Jocelyn was very nice and we would recommend her place to anyone who wants a cozy getaway! (Be sure you really like each other, because the toilet in the room can make things a little awkward hahaha)

Overall, a great stay!

Clean, well stocked, safe environment. Good air conditioner. Lovely hostess!

I used this house so my son and daughter in law could have their evening privacy after giving birth to their first born. It was all I needed in the evening to lay my head and unwind. Would like to see a comfy chair added since I could only sit on bed.

Owner's Response: Dear Rosie, I am so glad that I could play a part in the celebration of your new grandbaby. I hope you can visit us again. I read with dismay about your desire for a chair. When I greet all of my guests, I tell them to let me know if there is anything more I may do to make their stay with me more comfortable. If I had been made aware of your wish for a chair, I would have made arrangements, immediately. My guests' satisfaction with their time with me is very important. Sincerely, jocelyn

Tiny place with all the ammenities

  • 5 of 5

Perfect for one or two people. The bed is small. If the two people are large they'd have trouble fitting. Inside there's a sink, toilet, shower and tv. Owner left some snacks which was much appreciated. There was a coffee pot, wine glasses, wine bottle opener, plates and utensils. Loved having the fire pit, pool, rocking chairs and hammock. You can see the gulf from both the pool and the fire pit area. Very quiet. Others mentioned bicycles to ride but we were not offered any. As it was early March, the weather was perfect. I'd imagine the little place gets pretty hot in the summer. There's a small a/c but it wasn't pumping out much air. We plan to visit again when we can make better use of the pool. Extremely relaxing. Quite perfect :)
