Ocean Springs Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This is a sweet 1940's cottage that has been lovingly updated while leaving its charm, including the original heart pine floors. The location is ideal for a family vacation in Ocean Springs. The beach and harbor are within walking distance. There is a beautiful pathway on the beach passing the Ft. Maurepas Park and fishing pier. In season the shrimp boats sell their catch to the public, and charter boats are available. There is another Children's' Park 3 blocks from the cottage, and a soccer field and walking track only a block away. The cottage is equipped with everything you'll need for a pleasant stay of a weekend, week or longer. Check with us about extended stays.

Downtown Ocean Springs is a pleasant walk of 3 blocks and is full of restaurants, pubs, shops and art galleries. But, first and foremost, Ocean Springs is an old fashioned town with a great little grocery store (Broome's), banks, churches, and even a drugstore complete with a soda fountain. The Walter Anderson Museum and Shearwater Pottery are nationally known and acclaimed. This beautiful little town, with its tree shaded streets has been featured many times in travel magazines, and others such as Southern Living. Be sure to check the Ocean Springs Chamber of Commerce for its full schedule of festivals and other events.

In the event that you want more adult activities, the casinos in Biloxi are a short drive over the new Biloxi Bay bridge - also a popular walking route. Golf courses are available in Ocean Springs, as well as its neighboring cities.

Jack & Beth Riley have lived on the MS Gulf Coast for 35 years. They own Riley & Riley Photography studio in downtown Ocean Springs.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2005

We purchased this cottage as a rental in June of 2005. Then Hurricane Katrina hit in August and destroyed our house on the harbor. We were fortunate to have the 'Russell cottage' to move into and have enjoyed it for over 4 years. We loved being able to walk downtown for work, play and business.

COMFORTABLE COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
We rented Beth and Jack's very comfortable cottage on Russell Ave for 5 nights. Both queen beds in the two bedrooms had good mattresses with high-quality sheets for a restful night's sleep. The cottage was immaculately cleaned; coffee pot, toaster, stove, TV and appliances all worked perfectly. No complaints. We enjoyed the short walk to the small town downtown area with many charming shops, bars with live music, French bakery, homemade donut shop and several very good restaurants like Chief Scott's with delicious sushi. The casinos were just across the bridge, 7-9 minutes drive. Great location.

HOME AWAY FROM HOME!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first VRBO rental and we were very pleased. The house was cute, comfortable, tastefully decorated & had us feeling like we were at home in Mississippi. The furnishings were a great blend of attractive and comfort, with accents of beach since it is so close to the Gulf Coast. Master suite was large, other bedroom quite comfortable and both full bathrooms were also roomy and up-to-date. It is walking distance to Ocean Springs downtown restaurants, gift shops, and close to parks for adults and our grandchild. The owners were very attentive (as was obvious in the home) as well as when we had a question or locked ourselves out of the house (only once fortunately). We plan to come back!

CAN'T WAIT TO COME BACK!

Can't wait to come back!
  • 5 of 5
We've rented all kinds of vacation rentals, and this one is our favorite by far. It is the best combination of cozy and spacious that I've ever seen. As other reviews have said, it is more spacious than it appears in the photos. But it is also so efficiently laid out that it feels cozy. Jack and Beth are the perfect landlords, available and so helpful without being the least bit pushy. Beth answered many questions over email before we arrived, and quickly responded to a couple of issues that came up while we were there (we were there for 2 months this winter during some of the coldest months in recent memory). The location couldn't be better--while you are close enough to walk to the Mary C, the Walter Anderson Museum, the beach, and Fresh Market (every Saturday morning), you are not on a busy main-street arterial. The neighborhood is quiet--you really feel like you are home. The master bedroom is exceptionally large, and there is a huge walk-in closet (as well as another large ordinary closet in the room itself. The master bathroom is accessible only from the master bedroom, so it is wonderfully private. The second bedroom is normally sized--with a small closet, and the second bathroom is accessible from the hall. The hall is like another room--with the desk and two bookcases. The kitchen has plenty of counterspace and everything you need to cook. Many people don't want to cook when on vacation, but we do! We appreciated the well-equipped kitchen. I've tried to add new information to supplement what other people have commented on, but I must add my raves to the back yard patio. I loved sitting in the private backyard. I keep wanting to list the many virtues of Ocean Springs, but this review is about this particular property--so I'll resist. This is a lovely property, managed by wonderful people. We can't wait to return!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your kind words, Ann. We were happy to have such dependable folks staying in our house during this colder than normal winter. We take care of our house as we would our main residence and it was good to know that we could count on you and your husband to care for it the same way. We're looking forward to having you back next year!
