First visit to Gulf Coast

I drove down from the Memphis area looking for a quiet base from which my dog and I could explore the Mississippi Gulf coast. The home is lovely, as good as advertised. Both Billie and I loved to sit on the front porch and watch the joggers and walkers in the evening. There is so much room, I'd like to come back with some friends, maybe in February for the Gulfport horse show. My favorite bedroom was the master upstairs with access to the terrace, but all of them are large and well-decorated. I also enjoyed having breakfast at the table in the back garden. And I can't forget to mention the downstairs tile double-shower. The home is in a quiet neighborhood away from the touristy stuff in Biloxi and the Casinos, but close to those attractions.
I'm so glad you mentioned the Walter Anderson art. I accidentally stumbled upon Shearwater in Ocean Springs and then found the Anderson gallery in the old railroad building. Bought three prints and could have spent more time there, except the dog was in the car and it was hot. I would definitely go back there next time.
Took the shrimping boat trip and ate at Shaggy's, and, as mentioned, both welcomed my dog. The shrimp boat captain recommended a seafood store where I bought a pound of fresh-caught cooked shrimp, which I then ate for lunch. Yum.

Owner's Response: We love it when our dog guests have as much fun as the owner. The reason we even bought the house was to have the best possible home for our dogs to vacation. They deserve fenced in yards to keep safe while away from home. Finding dog friendly activities is always a plus. We take ours everywhere we can.
