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

What makes this cottage unique

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!

Fantastic week in Ocean Springs

  • 5 of 5

My Husband and I spent a very enjoyable week in Jeannie's comfortable, cozy cottage. The location is perfect, usually within 15 minutes of anything you might be interested in doing, and there's lots of different things to do. We appreciated the privacy of the back yard, not to mentioin the many cardinals who nest there. It was great to have a full kitchen to cook our meals, since we're not big about going out to eat. I was especially happy to have a washer and dryer available in the cottage so I didn't have to pack as many clothes for the trip. Jeannie is a very attentive hostess, and is always very happy to help make your stay more enjoyable in any way she can. We are planning on coming back that way next year. Thanks for your hospitality, Jeannie!

A perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent three days at Camelia Cottage. The only reason we gave it five stars is because we couldn't give it six. The perfect getaway. Secluded, close to everything. All the necessities were included, all the way down to the corkscrews. Jeannie was the perfect host who ended up being a good friend. If you want to stay at the perfect place while touring Biloxi, this is the place. Ron and Janet

Great vacation cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and i were looking for a private vacation home that was near beaches, had hiking and wildlife nearby, and was preferably in a small town. This cottage fit the bill perfectly! The house was well appointed with linens, kitchen necessities, etc. and decor that made us feel right at home. It had a large private yard that allowed us to feel quite remote, despite being settled in a small neighborhood. Ocean Springs is a great little town that was welcoming and had a lot to offer, and other destinations like New Orleans make for an easy day trip. Jeannie was so hospitable and just fun to talk to! She let us do our thing, but was always there if we needed something. We loved our stay, hope we can return one day, and would highly recommend the cottage!

I can arrange for a massage therapist to come to the cottage for your health and pampering.
