Ocean Springs Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Walk to the nearby inner harbor or the many specialty shops downtown.

The full-time residents in Ocean Springs know Ward Avenue. It is a favorite street shaded by the broad limbs of huge live oaks; it is a neighborhood with small homes & large homes, and families of all ages; it is quiet and convenient to everything good about Ocean Springs. You will enjoy your time here.

Whether you are looking for solitude or socializing, you will be comfortable in this charming home. The home has two bedrooms and two baths. The master bedroom has a king-sized bed, and the master bath features a large jetted tub and a separate shower. The second bedroom has a full-sized bed. The sunroom has a sofa that converts to a full-sized bed.

The brightly lit kitchen is fully equipped if you like to cook. There is a TV room, a separate living room for conversation and a dining room. In the backyard, you can enjoy sun or shade on the large deck, the bricked courtyard and the goldfish pond. In the front of the house, you can wave to neighbors from the little deck while enjoying another small pond & the partial shade of the pergola.

If you like to walk or bike ride ( there are three bikes available to our guests) you'll really enjoy this location: Front Beach is about a mile away, and features the new Fort Maurepas Park, a community fishing pier that is lighted at night and a popular beach walkway that extends from the Ocean Springs Yacht Club to the working harbor. At the harbor you can purchase the freshest shrimp and other seafood right off the commercial boats!

You can also walk or bike ride to other nearby Ocean Springs attractions:

- The world-renown Walter Anderson Museum is located on Washington Avenue in the heart of the historic downtown.

- The Mary C. O'Keefe Cultural Center is just two blocks at the north end of Ward Avenue. The 'Mary C' offers art classes, theatre performances, concerts and exhibits in their art gallery. The IP Culinary Arts Cafê holds popular cooking classes throughout the year.

- Kayaks are available for rental from a nearby shop. A paddle around the Inner Harbor, just a couple of blocks away, is a great way to spend the day fishing or taking photos of egrets, herons and shearwaters...or if you are more ambitious you can paddle over to beautiful Deer Island across the Biloxi Bay, or fish Davis Bayou just off of the East Beach area.

- If you are a golfer, there are numerous courses around Ocean Springs for all levels of players...from the historic Gulf Hills course that Elvis used to enjoy to a challenging championship course designed by Nicklaus.

- If you enjoy casino action, there are several just across the bridge in Biloxi. You'll find fine dining, entertainment, shops and games of chance in the many casinos in Biloxi and Gulfport. Shuttle buses run between Ocean Springs and the casinos throughout the day.

Ocean Springs is known as a creative community full of wonderful people and abundant natural resources. You'll be happy here, enjoying our many restaurants, pubs, specialty shops and galleries. This charming home on Ward Avenue will be a great base for your time here. Don't miss out on a chance to live the Ocean Springs life in this lovely home in the center of all good things!

Relax. Exhale. Enjoy all things Ocean Springs.

Keywords: This is a place for relaxation. Listen to the birds, watch the turtles go by, and the squirrels running around.

Relax. Exhale. Enjoy Life.

I came to Ocean Springs for the first time in 1985 and thought I had found Paradise. I went back to Texas, packed up and moved here, something I never have regretted.

Monica Smith purchased this cottage in 1993

The beauty of this area is just something else. The people are super friendly and helpful.

Wonderful Home!!!!

We just spent a week at this wonderful property! Monica graciously welcomed us to this cozy, comfortable home and made us feel very welcome as well our our 2 little dogs that travel with us! Though cold and rainy during most of our stay we still enjoyed the beautiful gardens. If it weren't for VRBO we would have not found such a gem to stay at while visiting our kids, grandkids and great grandkids. When in Ocean Springs this place is a must to stay at! Location is awesome! We'll definitely stay here again!

Easy walking to the beach, cute shops, bars, and restaurants. We barely used our rental car! Check in and out was a breeze and Monica (the property manager) had great local poboy shop recommendations.

We stayed in this property for the annual Crusin the Coast. It was an awesome experience for us. The house was comfortable, cozy, clean and well maintained. We have stayed in motels during CTC and there is no comparison. We loved the uniqueness of the home, the outdoor decks and the tropical setting of the yard. Most of all we loved the location to everything we wanted to attend and at the end of a long day we could come "home" and relax in a peaceful setting. We have already booked for next year CTC and would recommend this property to anyone. The pictures depict the house just as it is. It is a GREAT property!!

Charming house in a very nice neighborhood. We had absolutely everything we needed in the house. The kitchen was especially well equipped. And the master bathroom is really something wonderful.

Very good location with walking distance to both beach and the restaurants in Ocean Springs center. The oak-lined streets were so beautiful!
Owner's Response: We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay in our home and that you enjoyed Ocean Springs.

We had a great weekend stay at the house even though it rained for the whole weekend. Monica was there when we got there and very personable. We enjoyed our stay very much and will definitely book it again if we go to Ocean Springs. Unfortunately, the donut shop that everyone raved about was closed for the weekend (it was 4th of July weekend). We did go to the beach between the rain and that was very close by (we did take our vehicle but we could have rode bikes).
