Overview

About the property

This quaint, modern pool house, with cozy accommodations for one or two people, which consists of a doublebed room and bath, includes a immersion saltwater pool and veranda, which has hammock swinging, rocking chairs and comfortable seating for viewing the spectacular beachfront; it includes a fire pit for hot dog roasting and 'smores building, or just fire gazing. It is 700 hundred feet from the Mississippi Sound. There is the opportunity for bicycling (included) around this small, bedroom community, with walks along the seawall which is 1/2 mile to the harbor, as well as strolling among the beautiful oaks on the USM Gulf Park campus, only two blocks way.

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

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 :)

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review! I'm sorry about the confusion with the bicycles. They are available upon request because they are stored when not in use.

Unique and Intimate

  • 3 of 5

Overall good experience. Photos don't convey that you are renting a 10 x 10 room with the toilet fully exposed--be prepared for intimacy! Provided snacks were a nice touch, the shower worked surprisingly well and the bed was comfortable (storage underneath). No refrigerator or way to heat things; we were relieved we did not grocery shop prior to arriving. The outdoor sitting areas, hammock and pool were lovely and would have been more enjoyable if they were clean. Leaves and accumulated dirt was a detraction.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, I'm happy you enjoyed your stay. I'm sorry about the leaves on the porch, its the downside to having such majestic oak trees surrounding the property.

Styx Concert Trip

We enjoyed out stay at the pool house. It was cozy and well appointed. The owner who lives in the main house took great care of us. Hoping to stay there again!

The most quaint place I've ever had the pleasure to stay in!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Pool House for the final weekend of Crusin The Coast 2017. It was everything that was featured on VRBO and more. VRBO only summarizes the features and amenities of the structure itself but makes no mention of the hospitality and kindness of the owner of the place. We had the pleasure of meeting and talking to her which was a totally wonderful experience in itself. Our little trip was cut one day short by Hurricane Nate. We definitely would and plan to stay here again. I absolutely loved staying here.

Owner's Response: Dear Jacqueline, I am so glad that you and Daniel stayed at Halcyon Cabana with me, especially since you were well-versed on what was in store for me with Mother Nature's Nate. You could not have been nicer, or more helpful to me as our little "blow" approached our community. I will be forever grateful that you stepped to help, when you could have just packed up and left. Aside from that kindness, I found y'all to be delightful, and hope that you will visit us again. I meant what I said. Just call me when you wish. Sincerely, Jocelyn
