Overview

Ocean Springs Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

While the cottage has welcomed all guests it has a particular appeal for couples who come here to celebrate life events, like anniversaries, birthdays and even an engagement.

Guests often comment, 'This is even nicer than the pictures' and love the unexpected like a seasonal herb garden, ample parking. and it being dog friendly. One of the many advantages is how close it is to downtown and the beach, yet much quieter and private.

The kitchen is fully stocked or you can grill your dinner outside. The cottage is like your own condo...small, intimate, tastefully decorated and geared for your comfort. It is nestled in among ancient live oaks, magnolias and beautiful winter blooming camellias.

The cottage is located on a lovely Street in a quiet, residential neighborhood. It is not used for a party house or large events. I cannot accept children under ten due to the spiral staircase, and the minimum age for renting is 25.

If you read the guests comments and feel this is a good fit for your needs, please check the calendar and send me an email at camellia-cottage@att.net

Blue Skies & Great Sunsets,

Jeannie B. Bright

PS. I am very dog friendly, but with some restrictions, and also a pet fee.

About Jeannie B. Bright

This area has been the perfect place to retire to after years of living in large cities. Being close to nature is very important to me, and where I live inspires me every single day. My cats and dogs agree and are flourishing here. The friendly people, beautiful surroundings, and abundance of artists have added immeasurably to my life.

Jeannie B. Bright purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Jeannie B. Bright chose Ocean Springs

I have travelled worldwide and I am happy and content to call Ocean Springs my home. Come for a visit, and see what it does for you.

What makes this cottage unique

If you are in need of true relaxation as well as fun, food and culture, this is it. I take great pride in Camellia Cottage and all of the wonderful reviews it has been given.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Paul and I have really enjoyed getting to know you and staying in this really cute cottage. Ocean Springs is also a really fun place...seeing the ocean and walking downtown. The

restaurant "The Phoenecian" was really great and accommodating for Pauls' food allergies. We hope to see you again soon. Thanks again!

Short But Sweet!

  • 5 of 5

We have to give 5 stars for everything - Jeannie as a hostess, the cottage, the location, and Ocean Springs. We had a difficult travel day, planning to arrive around 4:00 PM, but because of a flat tire and having to be towed to get it fixed, we arrived as weary travelers at 10:30 PM. It was so nice to walk in the door to such a wonderful accommodation. Jeannie knew we were arriving late, and had so thoughtfully turned on lights for us and had the cottage cooled for our arrival. She is such a thoughtful person and checked on us the day after to make sure all was well at the cottage and to see if we needed any help with dinner reservations or information about the area. We only stayed two nights but the cottage was wonderful - very spacious, nicely decorated and immaculately clean. We enjoyed sitting outside on the patio and the private wooded view. We loved Ocean Springs and spent a lot of time just riding around looking at the beautiful homes and views of the beach and marshes. If you like pottery, don't miss stopping by Shearwater Pottery at 102 Shearwater Drive, and be sure to see their museum and gallery. For dinner, we really enjoyed Anthony's Under the Oaks. The food and service were excellent, and the sunset view is not to be missed. I highly recommend Camellia Cottage for your vacation stay, no matter how long or short your stay. Hope to see you again soon, Jeannie!

CHARMING, CHARMING, CHARMING...... ???

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do this cottage justice - charming, adorable, private. We knew when we stepped inside we had chosen the perfect place for our stay in Ocean Springs - and Jeannie and her furry friends were the perfect touch. She is just as charming and adorable! We will definitely be returning and have told all our family and friends about this place. The beach is lovely and close - we had a wonderful stay! :)

abundant charm

  • 5 of 5

Our family and 2-year-old pug feel fortunate to have found this golden nugget of a cottage. It is located in a lush, peaceful area of Ocean Springs. The cottage is very clean, eclectically furnished, and artistically decorated. The bed is beyond cozy. Jeannie is a charming host who cheerfully addressed all of our needs and helped us feel right at home. Our satisfaction with the lodging paired very well with the attractions of Ocean Springs. We were able to achieve that delightful, magical feeling of "getting away from it all" that is the aspiration of all recreational travelers. Our only regret is that we could not stay longer.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you picked my cottage for your stay. I will long remember Harry Potter and his pug ( as well as his mothers!)
