Guestbook comments from the owner
In planning my trip, I was totally unfamiliar with the area. I blindly stumbled across the Ocean Belle beach house by accident and felt that I was taken my chances in choosing to stay there. AFter staying there I believe there is no better place to stay in the area. It is perfect. It is quiet, secluded, the beach is natural and the sunsets are beautiful.



The house is amazing. It is spacious. Just enough room to get together and enough room to get away from each other. Satellite TV in each room. The screened porch is fabulous for breakfast with the ocean breeze and wildlife to watch. The tower is perfect for watching storms roll in.



To be fair - the negative - the water stinks. But that is the only negative thing I could think of. With such a beauiful house and incredible location, I can live with bottled water.



I couldn't have planned a better place to stay or an area to visit even if I had known what I was doing. I almost don't want you to post this review because I want the house all to myslf.



Thanks Susan and Homer

When I saw this natural beach several years ago, I realized the area had been overlooked, as it was so unique with white sand, oak trees on the property and a world of opportunity for travelers. I purchased the property, built a beach house, only used it for our family, but when Hurricane Katrina washed it away in August 2005, I decided to rebuild, stronger with more amenities. Guests can enjoy views from the tower and take advantage of beach activities.

SPRING BREAKERS

  • 5 of 5
We just stayed at the house, it was just as pictured and a wonderful place to stay. It was ready when we arrived and although directions were not clear it was not that difficult to find. We had four kids with us and they had a blast. We brought the uncertain weather with us from the north and even with the rain and cooler temps at the beginning of the week the kids found plenty to do. As the week went on the temps got warmer and we enjoyed spending every moment outside on the beach. We caught blue crabs in the traps, lots of fun and even ate a few. We just used leftover meat from our first supper for bait and it worked like a charm. Mostly we liked the anticipation of seeing what we caught and then letting them go. We even caught a hermit crab in the traps. We loved seeing the seagulls and the pelicans on the pilings and the cranes and other birds in the bayou area. The kids were set on seeing an alligator so we took a walk on the unused golf course paths at the beginning of the neighborhood and saw a few peeking out from the water and one sunning in the reeds in one of the ponds. It was a safe distance away and a good way to say you had seen an alligator. Bring the binoculars from the house for a better view (which is so thoughtful that they are there in the study area as there is lots to see with them) On the beach we found more hermit crabs, jellyfish, lots of ships passing by way out to watch and some beach play toys... Plenty to keep our interest daily. We are not fishermen but the gentleman next door had caught quite a few fish while we were there. The gnats were bad at times and the bug spray did not keep them away, but they seemed to only be around for short periods of time and then go away. We kept looking for dolphins and were disappointed as we ate our last breakfast looking out onto the water, hopeful. Right as we were packing to leave they came to say goodbye! It was a great way to end the trip as we watched one come all the way in chasing fish and making quite a ruckus at times. Super great experience.
If there are any cons to this immediate area it is a lack of things to do off of the beach. We went on the Biloxi Shrimping Tour and that was a great value and a fun way to get out on the water, but even little touristy shopping areas are lacking, especially with kids in mind. We know that is mostly because of the slow rebuilding after the hurricane and were happy to support the business we did go into, but found few to patronize.

Owner's Response: Thanks for such a thorough review of your stay at our beach house. I knew when i first saw the property, this was a unique place in the sand, with oak trees,; terrific views in almost all directions, that this was the place for family vacations.
Thanks again for your kind remarks and hope you return next year.

BEAUTIFUL HOME, GORGEOUS VIEW!

  • 5 of 5
This house is beautiful and the view is beautiful as well! The pictures are beautiful but it is way better in person. We had a large group of people and everyone slept very comfortably and had plenty of room. Everything needed to cook every meal was readily available! We enjoyed our coffee from the lookout tower every morning. We fished , walked and relaxed on the beach. We saw dolphins three different mornings, they came fairly close to the shore! We loved the seclusion of the home, it was very peaceful and quiet. Just what we needed for our week of relaxation and fun! It was far enough away from town to be private but close enough to run to the store for groceries when needed.
Thank you for your hospitality,
The Trustys

STAY OF A LIFETIME

  • 5 of 5
The house is bigger than expected. Pictures don't do it justice. Three adults and 3 children were able to stay comfortably and enough space to find a quiet space for yourself when needed. The kitchen had everything we could have needed and more. The beach was fantastic and enjoyed being on it everyday. Thanks to all the crab traps, the kids enjoyed catching, examining, and eating them. I borrowed my brother-in-law's kayak and took it right out in front of house and had dolphins come right up to me. I reached out and touched one. My kids went for a walk down the road and spotted an alligator. Everything was so quiet and peaceful from the observation deck with pelicans flying over to the screened in porch, being able to sit and eat listening to the waves and nature. It was hard to leave and is definitely a place we want to return to next year when we can arrange it. A special thanks to Sue Smith for answering all of our questions and to the housekeeper who had it ready for us.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments as you never know how guests like their vacation until you hear back. I too, enjoy the beach house, little things like picking up sea shells, catching blue shell crabs and eating them off the table on the screened deck are fun things to do. I am extremely pleased your vacation was more than you expected and hope you return. Best Regards, Homer Wallace

VACATION HAVEN

  • 5 of 5
Just wanted to say how much my family and I enjoyed our stay in this beautiful ocean front retreat. We've rented homes in the Gulf area for the past 3-years and this one by far one of the loveliest we've stayed. The views were amazing, as was all the natural marsh lands surrounding the area. If you can imagine sitting on a screened in deck with your favorite book, a glass of wine, and the surround sound of waves rushing against the shores along the beach... this is your home-away from home! We will definitely keep this rental in our archive for future stays.

Owner's Response: You described OBI, our beach house, the best of anyone who has stayed there, since we decided in 2007 to list it as a vacation rental. When we purchased the property some years ago, I thought it was so unique, with the sandy beach, oak trees on road side, terrific view of the islands and sound of the waves from screened porch. Having breakfast in the tower is a great way to start the day.

Thanks so much and please return.

AWESOME FISHING AND SCENERY.

  • 4 of 5
The best fishing I've ever experienced in my life. High tide brings the shrimp into shore and then it is a feeding frenzy for the trout. Your lure barely hits the water before you have a fish. This lasts for about 90 minutes straight each day. Only downside is that we discovered alligators taking an early morning swim down the gulf side of the peninsula. You can watch them swim back around the point and towards the canal opening. Never saw them again after the first morning but locals say they come into the gulf side to clean their skin off in the saltier water and then go back into the canal side. One guy I met was wading out in the water fishing and said he had a gator hanging out with him for like an hour. Anyhow, we took the kids to the public beach in downtown Ocean Springs to swim each day. Wife wasn't too keen on the alligator thing. But if you're looking for beautiful sunsets, great fishing, and peace and quietness .... I definitely recommend this place.

Owner's Response: My experience over the years is alligators are only in the bayou, 4 or 5 lots to the west. I have never seen one or heard of one at the beach in front or close to the beach house.

The comments on fishing especially at high tide makes me want to go fishing next time I am there.

SERENITY AT ITS BEST

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 12, immediate & extended, ages 2-68, all enjoyed ourselves very much. The weather was perfect. Kids & adults both loved exploring the beach & marsh. We wanted a relaxing, calm, peaceful getaway that was close enough to attractions if we chose to do them, but not so close that it disrupted our quiet. This location was PERFECT!! We felt instantly at home & the house was very neat & clean. It was stocked with all necessities. We made a trip to the grocery store for snacks of course. The house was very roomy, &the layout was perfect even with so many people. We never felt cramped or like we were in each others way. The only drawback we had was we couldn't use the elevator. Having a couple elderly persons with slight disabilities, they planned their day, so that they would only have to go up or down the steps once. All agreed it was the best vacation they have ever had, they would do it again given the chance. The Gulf Coast is an absolutely beautiful place & this house is in an unspoiled, natural location. I wouldn't change a thing. Thank you again kind Sir for sharing your home with us. We will cherish the memories forever.

Owner's Response: Thanks for a kind review of your stay at our beach home. After our first architect designed home was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, we decided to take the best, expand, and rebuild with more amenities in the same location.

Until you stay in a facility, where you can hear the waves from inside, enjoy the birds, walk on the sandy beach -- this makes a vacation worthwhile.

Thanks again and hope you will return.
