Overview

Ocean Springs Cottage Rental Photos and Description

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

This unique cottage is located directly on the beautiful Ocean Springs Harbor. Its large deck is a wonderful place to relax, and observe the sailboats and wildlife. Pelicans, Great Blue Herons, Night Herons , Egrets and Skimmers all frequent the harbor on a regular basis. You can easily walk to the beach or downtown Ocean Springs, which is filled with art galleries, boutiques and over 100 restaurants. The casinos are just 10 minutes across the Biloxi Bay. Charter boats are available for hire in the Ocean Springs Harbor and Biloxi Harbor. Several golf courses are within a short drive, as well as kayak rentals and tennis courts.

The Master bedroom is located upstairs in a loft, with the bathroom downstairs. The large living room has a queen size sofa sleeper. There is a kitchenette with a dining area. Bicycles are available with the cottage to cruise the shaded streets of this historic town up close. Our beaches are still uncrowded and our waters provide some of the best seafood in the country. Something wonderful is always in season: crabs, crawfish, oysters and always fish of all kinds. In season, you can even walk to the the harbor and buy fresh shrimp right off the boats.

Our Harbor House is filled with local art and whimsy. It was once part of the original Ocean Springs Yacht Club which was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. Thankfully, the Guest House survived and has been completely remodeled with love since the hurricane.

About Beth & Jack Riley

Jack & Beth Riley lived on this property until Hurricane Katrina rudely moved them out in 2005. However, they couldn't give up on this wonderful location and still retain the Harbor House for themselves, family, friends and visitors. The Riley's own a photography studio in downtown Ocean Springs.

Beth & Jack Riley purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Beth & Jack Riley chose Ocean Springs

This was once our home. We moved to Ocean Springs because of its small town charm and historic beauty.

What makes this cottage unique

Watching the boats and birds in the harbor from the deck; walking to the beach, buying fresh shrimp from a boat in the harbor or going to one of the many shops, galleries or restaurants in town.

"One Particular Harbor....House"

"One Particular Harbor....House"

Located directly on the inner harbor and just a short walk from the Beach and Downtown, the Harbor house is one of, if not the best place to stay in Ocean Springs. The house is tastefully and comfortably furnished with everything we needed. I especially liked the loft... furnished with a king size bed, and windows that open out for a nice breeze. The covered deck is another big plus....great place for morning coffee or an afternoon glass of wine. The absolute best thing about the Harbor House is its owners...Jack and Beth are the most gracious, accommodating and fun people you will ever meet.

My husband and I discovered the Harbor House quite by accident three years ago and have returned several times. This is the best VRBO we have stayed. We find it very comfortable and relaxing. It is furnished with everything you could ever want or need.
The owners are friendly, responsive and flexible
We wish we were able to spend more time there.
Time before last, our visit included seeing two otters sunning themselves on the adjoining dock!
The Harbor House is one of the jewels of Ocean Springs, Ms.

Great experience

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I recently spent a four day weekend at the Harbor House and loved it. The location is fabulous. Great views when relaxing on the deck. It was very exciting when I realized we could walk though the harbor and on to the beach. So many great parks to visit in the area. Enjoyed visiting the art galleries in Ocean Springs and the Walter Anderson museum. The small kitchen was no problem with so many good restaurants in the area. We loved the art in the cottage. First thing we did when we got back home was make reservations to go back in the spring. Thanks Beth, you were great to work with.

Needs some love!!

  • 2 of 5
My husband and I stayed at this property October 2014 and were very disappointed! I assume that the high stars are primarily because it is in a great location...by the marina, walkable to the beach and good restaurants, etc. The deck area is lovely but the inside is in need of a serious cleaning and paint job. The photos of the upholstered furniture must have been taken the day they were purchased. The green couch is VERY stained and the cushions have collapsed. The striped chair has a ripped arm, which was covered by a throw that had a fair amount of pet hair on it. I did not want to sit on either piece of furniture. The upstairs bedroom area is OK..great windows with lots of light, almost too much light for sleeping. Some sort of shade would be nice. I would not stay at this rental again nor can I recommend it to anyone.

Owner's Response: Diane, I'm sorry you weren't as happy with our cottage as most of our guests are. When we spoke I told you that we had new furniture on order, which is now at the cottage. Unfortunately our couch and chair had the kind of upholstery that spotted when we applied the shampoo. The spots were unsightly but actually weren't dirty. The armchair had been shampooed so many times, it did wear a hole in one of the arms, but I assure you, the throw that was there was not covered in dog hair. Not sure about your complaints about the need for paint. There are a few places where a chair had made a mark on the wall, but overall, we pride ourselves on the cleanliness of our property and our guests have always been pleased.
