This is a retro 50's bungalo with 2 bedrooms[now with a king bed and twin with trundle] and 2 full bathrooms,located of the beach in Biloxi,Mississippi. My husband and I grew up in New Orleans,La. and spend alot of time on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. We always wanted to live on the coast. This home was purchased after Katrina in 2006. Luckily ,there was no flooding mainly due to the fact it is located in the highest land point in Biloxi. Our street didn't even loose the two houses on Hwy 90 facing the gulf.
This house was our full time home for two years. We have moved into a larger home nearby with the thought that we will someday return to our small peach cottage.
The house has two bedrooms,one contains a queen size Murphy's bed. Meaning you have to pull the bed down from the wall at night. This doesn't require alot of effort and does contain a regular mattress.This bedroom has a 19'' tv/dvd combonation. The other bedroom contains two twin beds. An air mattress could be provided if additional sleeping for little ones is needed.
The home is one story,with doorways wide enough for a wheelchair.Built in the 50's ,the retro flair remains. Both bathroons contain the larger square shallow tubs from the 50's. In hot retro colors too.There is a full galley kitchen with a washer and dryer,dishwasher and a new high end Italian gas/electric range. All floors are wood or tile.
The backyard is fully fenced and there is a large covered back porch. A small gas grill is provided.The backyard and front yard have a large oak tree providing great afternoon shade. There is a single car driveway leading to a single car carport.
The location of this property is one of it's greatest features. No matter what time of the year you stay here,you will always be close to what is going on in Biloxi. No fighting traffic for Mardi Gras,4th of July, watching Crusin the Coast,even gaming at the famous Beau Rivage is only a short walk away.Local grocery store is close by along with shopping and a movie theater.Afternoon and morning walks on the beach are only a thought away.

Getting close to retirement,we purchased this house to be our retirement home.We hope to provide you with a pleasent home away from home feeling and will be happy to try to assist with any special needs you have.We live closeby,still working as a nurse and business owner.
We love being near the gulf. Just looking at the beach and water makes life seem carefree even when it's not.
We grew up visiting the coast and always wanted to move here. The time came that we could buy property locally and knew it had to be close to the beach. We wanted an area near downtown Biloxi with a good neighborhood feel. Only a house would do, condos just don't feel like home and home is what we wanted. We lived full time for two years in this house and plan to someday return to full time residance there again.
We love the area.My husband takes morning walks daily on the beach. I like to take my four year old grandaughter to the beach when the tide is out to find shells,hermit crabs,check out what the ocean has washed a shore and build sand castles at dusk. We also enjoy walking out on the fishing pier to check out the days catch.This has been a great spot to watch the spring Blessing of the Fleet, December's Christmas Boat Parade and 4th of July beach fireworks.
We take in the free family movie nights on Biloxi Town Green in the summer and fall and always enjoy the free October historic Biloxi Cemetary tour.Local arts and craft festivals abound and always offer unique finds and great food.Biloxi Farmer's Market on Tuesdays and Thursdays offer the best fresh produce and plants to be found.
Gaming,night life and first class entertainers are here at the casinos,along with buffetts that you won't believe. These buffetts offer special days of senior discounts which helps when trying to budget.

They have one Friday afternoon a month that is free. Of course the adult playground, the casinos are plentyful and fun to discover each ones unique features.

This is a great place for those Christmas card photos.Santa has been on hand for free photos the last two years.The IP Casino does alot of benifit projects for the community and I love when they have paint and pal classes.
