About John

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

Why John chose Pass Christian

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

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.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5
Our family girl's getaway was incredible in this beautiful home. The house was well stocked with everything we could have needed and the comfortable porch atmosphere offered hours of relaxation and conversation. The owner was a delight to work with as well.

Lovely house and location

  • 5 of 5
The area is lovely as is the beach and the home. Just a short walk to beautiful white sand, no seaweed, no shells, just an empty swatch of sand and water. Hardly ever a soul on the beach, and just a short walk from the house. The house has been updated and everything works perfectly. The beautifully restored kitchen was a delight to work in, along with the adjoining laundry room. Definitely a great vacation spot.

Owner's Response: Kathy and I are delighted you had a great time in Pass Christian and at the Porch House. Remodeling the kitchen was a labor of love for Kathy, a foodie from New Orleans. Keeping in character with a 1890 house while upgrading everything is always interesting. Thanks for your comments.

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.
