The Waveland Bungalow is owned by a small group of friends (3 married couples) who formed a business partnership back in 1999 in New Orleans. After several years of buying and renovating historic rental property in New Orleans, we agreed that it was time for a convenient and affordable beach getaway, and Waveland was the best location for us. We have varied backgrounds and interest and our numbers include a teacher, a maintenance supervisor, a physician assistant, 2 oil& gas industry professionals and a restaurateur. We all enjoy traveling with our dogs & kids.
We purchased this property in 2004 when we were seeking a quiet, convenient and affordable place to getaway for the weekend. We thoroughly enjoyed our quiet beach bungalow until August 2005, when Katrina washed away most of Waveland. We were thrilled that our Oak tree survived the storm! Along with our business partners, we rebuilt our New Orleans homes and rental properties and have now completed our new beach getaway. Its slightly larger and takes advantage of a better layout and large porch. We look forward to many years of enjoyment and hope you will enjoy it too!
The property is secluded due to being an interior corner lot, with a large oak tree and a wall of bamboo lining the side and rear boundary with the neighboring property. Its kid and pet friendly, with quiet streets that are good for bike riding, dog-walking or exploring.
