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.

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 Hewes 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.

Historic House with Charm

My family and I really enjoyed our week in the House of Hewes. We had everything we needed since the house was well stocked. There is a grocery store just a few minutes away if you choose to stay in and cook, however there are several restaurants very close by. We enjoyed a great little pizza place, plenty of seafood, casinos, fishing and of course a very nice beach..what else could you need? The train does rumble through several times nightly and the ceiling fan in the master was somewhat noisy but other than that the house was perfect for my group of 5.

Historic Home on Mississippi Gulf Coast

This home is only a couple of blocks from the Gulf, and has been in the owner's family since the '30s. It is very well maintained, and the onsite attendant will assist you with any questions that you may have. It was very clean, and well appointed. It is near a college campus, as well as downtown Long Beach. We enjoyed a local coffee house, Bank House Coffee, which makes the best lattes, capuccinos, etc. and has great scones. The seafood was great, and we enjoyed Half Shell in Gulfport several times. The property is very close to New Orleans (about one hour away), and that makes for a great day trip.

Owner's Response: Dear Judge,

Thanks so much for your comments. I hope you will visit us again sometime. I have not been to the coffee house, but I will definitely try it the next time I go down. The Oyster House in Gulf Port is one of my favorite restaurants on the coast.

Thanks,
Robin

We loved the location!!

We enjoyed our stay!!

The only suggestions we could come up with that would have made our stay more enjoyable, would be the addition of a hand held shower head. My husband is tall and he could have more easily taken a shower, if he had a hand held shower head.

We felt the property was clean, there were some areas that we werent sure if they were just old like the home or could be repaired to be bit nicer. We also loved the simplicity and older style of the home, so we wouldn't wanna lose that!!

Mike was very helpful and pleasant. The kids loved the bunny and the rooster on the property.

We ate at Darwells and it was fantastic!!! We would definitely come back and bring people with us.

Thanks so much for the oppurtunity to enjoy your home.

Oh my how I loved this home. It was absolutely perfect! So close to the beach, restaurants , shops and Wal-Mart! Everything was nice, neat and clean in the house, everything you needed was there. There were 8 of us that stayed and plenty of hot water to go around. The beach was so close and so private. Also down the street us the Friendship Oak which is a must see. Already thinking about planning for next year !!!

The atmosphere and location of your home was as close to being at home as it could be. Warm, quiet, mornings on the deck and dinners in the evenings, allowed us to share many family memories. The home invited us into it, as we imagined how the families lived in simple luxury, as the times have changed this house has stood strong. Close to the beach, shopping, entertainment, wildlife on the property and a little farm life made staying there more grand. The best of the old and the new.
Absolutely prefect owners and hostess. We will be back, we loved this house.

Thanks so much,

Robin
