Guestbook comments from the owner
This was the perfect spot to relax after Mardi Gras and the only regret was that the stay was too short. Next time will be longer. Thanks for letting us share your lovely house. We loved both porches.

Kathy grew up in New Orleans, and has family in the area. John grew up in North Carolina, and met Kathy through their mutual love of sailing.

John purchased this house in 2008

Kathy's family, like a lot of people from New Orleans who have homes and cottages in the Pass, moved to Pass Christian permanently some years ago to enjoy the sailing and beach. John and Kathy have restored 3 old homes from the 20s, and jumped at the chance to own a historic home from 1890.

The front porch of our home, plus the historic nature of Seal Avenue and the Scenic Drive Historic District, made this an easy choice for us. One block to the Waterfront Memorial park, with its beautiful view through the live oaks to the Gulf, and its well equipted childrens playground, plus 3 new lighted tennis courts. The short 2 block walk to the downtown restaurants and shops, one block to the beach and the beautiful live oaks of Scenic Drive, plus the marina and yacht club 3 blocks away, make the home an ideal location as well. Want to get off the porch (it's hard to do),go kayaking on the Wolfe River and into the bayou, or take in a show at one of the many casinos 20 minutes down the Gulf. or enjoy one of many New Orleans inspired eateries close by, from elegant to quirky, you cant miss good food. Or better yet, go to New Orleans for the day (1 hour 10 minute drive from cottage to downtown NOLA )

Plan to spend some time in Bay St Louis (7 minutes) shopping the many antique and local specialty shops (sorry, no chain stores), or travel 45 minutes to quaint Ocean Springs, with its local shops and eateries.

Save time to take the Ship Island Ferry from Gulfport 11 miles out to the beautiful beaches of the Gulf Islands National Seashore.

HISTORIC HOUSE: 5 STARS FROM FAMILY

  • 5 of 5
The historic porch house gets five stars from our family. Our retirement family trip included all adults, which the house easily handled! The large quiet front porch was a great gathering place for those wanting to read and write, while the well appointed kitchen was a chef's delight. My youngest daughter is a chef!

The house was close to the beach but situated on a very quiet street away from the usual busy beach front. Loved our visit.

The owners were so easy to work with even though it was our first experience renting a house. Great Experience!! Great House!!

Owner's Response: Kathy and I are glad you chose the Porch House and Pass Christian for your retirement trip, and that you found it as relaxing as we do. The kitchen renovation was a labor of love, but neither of us are chefs. Thanks f

WONDERFUL PROPERTY!

  • 5 of 5
What a beautiful property! We loved the home. The screened in porch was huge with plenty of seating space. We ate every meal outside.

The owner was very nice and accessible. The house was sparking and charming. We walked to the beach and the park a block away. We also walked to the Farmers Market Saturday morning.

I would recommend the house highly.

WONDERFUL OLD HOME WITH CHARM

  • 4 of 5
The house has the character that you expect from the gulf coast area. The owners are easy and pleasant to work with. I visit the area often and this house is my new favorite place to stay. Close to the beach, shopping, dining and nightlife make this a perfect choice.

TRADITION AND NOSTALGIA WITH ALL THE MODERN TRAPPINGS

  • 5 of 5
The "Porch House" is located in my childhood neighborhood so I feel very fortunate to come across such an historic and familiar place to spend my Christmas vacation. We utilized all aspects of the house including the beautiful and modern kitchen, the huge porch, and the clawfoot tub for long soaks. The location is perfect: a block from the beach, the shops, the park, the tracks too. The decor is authentic and cozy- very home-like. What a serene place... for anyone looking for peace and small-town charm- this is it!

WONDERFUL LOCATION, WONDERFUL HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this vacation home for a weekend to attend a wedding. It is a wonderful house and the porch is the best part. We have a three year old and he was able to run around on the porch in the morning while we enjoyed our coffee. It is about a block from the beach and a block and a half or so from a great beachfront park with a children's play set. It is also within walking distance of main street Pass Christian. House was clean and well maintained.

FAMILY FROM NEW ORLEANS

  • 5 of 5
This house is TERRIFIC! We lived on the huge porch and enjoyed the quaint neighborhood. We especially liked the local market on Saturday morning, a two minute walk from the house. The owner is nice and super helpful. The house is clean, clutter free and the beds are comfortable. We are headed back for another weekend!
