CAMELLIA COTTAGE 'YOUR PRIVATE RETREAT ON THE GULF COAST'

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, and ample parking. 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.

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 DO NOT BECOME A VICTIM OF SCAMS, asking for huge deposits, and full payment. Your deposit request will ALWAYS come directly from my business account. I DO NOT advertise on Craigs List.

Blue Skies & Great Sunsets,

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

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

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.

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.

Spent the month of February in Camellia Cottage. This private dwelling became our home away from home. Upon meeting Jeannie, we felt like we'd known her for a long time. This cottage is close to everything. Our stay was very pleasant and comfortable. Although the weather was fair to good, it was so much better than at our home in Illinois. Leaving was bittersweet. Anxious to get home to family but hated to leave this cottage.

We fell in love with the cottage, and begged Jeannie to let us stay longer! Every detail has been thought of and besides the surroundings and décor, the very private and lovely yard and wooded area give the cottage a very peaceful and relaxing feeling. We loved Ocean Springs and enjoyed the rich history and culture, as well as great food and nearby music and casinos. Jeannie is as charming and warm as her cottage. We can't wait to come "home" again!

Owner's Response: I found instant friends meeting Sally & Gary. We got to share time, wine and stories. My cat, Belle-Noel fell shamelessly in love with Gary. I have my fingers crossed that we will renew our new friendships in the future. xxxooo Jeannie b.

This is a lovely lovely place to stay. This was our second trip to Ocean Springs and we plan to make this an annual trip. This cottage was so nice and comfortable...especially the bed:) It was very peaceful and private. I hate we didn't get to meet the owner but she was very helpful by telephone when we needed anything.
Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I appreciate it, and I
definitely want to meet you Ashley & Derek on your
next visit!

Camellia Cottage is the best! It's quiet & peaceful. Not far at all from shopping, and only a mile from the beach. The owner/landlord is one of the most interesting people I've met in a long time. The owner is very attentive and helpful. I felt like I could call anytime night or day. Really made us feel welcome and comfortable. I will be going back to Ocean Springs and the ONLY place I'll stay is Camellia Cottage!

Notes:
There is a beautiful, historical cemetary at the end of the street that both photographers and historians enjoy. Ocean Springs, Biloxi and Gulfport have frequent festivals, concerts and events year round. Some guests take trips to New Orleans and Mobile, and I can arrange for a pet sitter, to care for your dog. I can also have a massage therapist come to the cottage for your health and pampering.
