HISTORIC HOME 1 BLOCK FROM THE BEACH! HOUSE OF HEWES

Long Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms 1.25 Baths, (Sleeps 8-9)

Lovely historic home with lots of grace and charm. One block from the beach, across from the University of Southern Mississippi at Gulf Park, home of the Friendship Oak. This home sits on a large tree filled lot with plenty of privacy, just minutes away from shopping and gaming in Biloxi and Gulfport and one hour away from the French Quarter in New Orleans. Unbeatable value for those looking for a quiet vacation away from the hustle and bustle of crowded beaches.

Three bedrooms upstairs, furnished with comfortable queen beds and two twins in third bedroom. A lovely Sunroom also has a queen size bed and comfortable chair makes a place to enjoy early morning coffee or quiet afternoon reading. There is a futon that can be folded out to use as additional sleeping.

The large inviting deck can accommodate grilling, eating or just relaxing.

On site attendant will be available for easy check in. Shuttle services can be arranged for transportation to and from shopping and casinos. Chartered fishing trips also available.

This home has been in our family for 75+ years. We have spent many happy times in this home and have lots of good memories. We recently decided to share the unique charm of this house. The house has been almost completely restored and we will continue making upgrades. We hope you come to love it as much as we do and return often to enjoy to quiet slow pace of Long Beach, truly a jewel of the Gulf Coast.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Thank you so much for letting us stay at your beach house. It was a very exciting adventure for the kids. This was the first time they had ever been to the beach. They had a blast playing in the water and sand. My wife is very intrigued by the house and curious about its history like why parts are the original and what has been added and when.



Anyway it was a wonderful weekend. Thank you so much for the escape.

This house has been in my family for almost 80 years. My parents grew up in Long Beach and moved to Tennessee after they married. My husband and I live in Holly Springs, MS and love to come to the coast to relax. Our family has a long history on the coast. I still have lots of cousins who live on the coast full time. My sister refers to this house as her 'happy place.' We'd love for you to come for a visit.

Robin Rasmussen purchased this house in 1935

This home has been in our family for over 75 years. First it was owned by my grandparents and then my father. We have enjoyed it as our vacation home for years and now its your chance th share in the experience. This is truly a home away from home.

There is an onsite property attendant to facilitate check in and emergency needs or just a friendly face.

Lovely Old House

  • 4 of 5
Truly enjoyed our "girl's weekend" at Hewes House. Plenty of room for all 9 of us. We enjoyed the beautiful beach during the day and the deck at the house in the evenings. The bathrooms could use an update, but they were workable and everything else was great. We ate in and appreciated the well stocked kitchen.

Owner's Response: Brenda, I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. I understand old houses have old bathrooms. The plan is to update them in the next year or so, as well as the kitchen. As I'm sure you can know, old houses have lots of charm and are a constant ongoing project. Hope you will visit us again!

Excellent Vacaton home

  • 5 of 5
Thank you for allowing my family and I to use your house for our vacation. It was perfect for all of the people we had with us and also for our dogs that we were allowed to bring. We all enjoyed ourselves very much. It was a great location and having the porch to enjoy the nights was great also. We are already looking forward to next summer. Also Mr Mike was very helpful when we needed anything. Thanks Again

Our Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5
We just finished our third vacation staying at the House of Hewes and it just keeps getting better. We love the location near the beautiful Gulfport campus and a few minutes walk from the beach. There is so much to do with great restaurants and cool stuff in the neighboring cities like Bay St. Louis. It is just a short drive to New Orleans, so if you can't find something fun to do the problem is probably you! The house is great, lots of room and anything you need to live like you're at home, but with the benefit of staying in a classic old house. Recent upgrades keep things fresh and the owners and groundskeeper make the stay as pleasant as possible. We will keep coming back as long as the house stands!

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5
House of Hewes was the perfect place to stay for our daughter's wedding in Long Beach. The house is full of charm and the location was close to everything: the florist, the baker, the beach pavilion, the caterer and the rental company. The house was spacious and clean and had just enough room for everyone to stay with a room left over for getting the bride ready! The fact that our pets were welcome too was a big plus. The deck was perfect for the bridal shower and the blooming flowers added a nice touch.

Our "Mini-Honey Moon"

Our "Mini-Honey Moon"
  • 5 of 5
Sort of a mini or pre-honey moon, we had an absolutely marvelous time. Just a few short blocks from the beach and close to shopping, what a great location. Loved the old house and period decor. Stair case was easy to navigate for both of us, we have walking issues but the short rise steps worked out well. Kitchen had everything we needed to cook and dine with. The train comes by periodically but was not a bother, otherwise quiet and secluded, very much enjoyed sitting out on the rear deck for dinner and cocktails. Would love to go again, and will. Good price for all the amenities and location.
