STEPS FROM THE BEACH

Waveland Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

The 'Little House' is only 100 steps from the beautiful white sand beach in Waveland and is located behind the Big House. It is a 900 SF Mediteranean style stucco house featuring a clay tile roof and Mexican tile open deck. As you relax on the deck under the shade of the live oak tree, you have several views of the beach and a 300+ year old cypress tree.

Inside, the very open floor plan has ceramic tile throughout the house and many double windows to add to the open feel.

The spacious bedroom has a king bed and two large closets. The bathroom features an oversized whirlpool tub with ceramic tile enclosure and counter tops. The fully stocked kitchen has plenty of counter space and cabinets. The laundry room is equipped with a full size washer and dryer.

From this location, you can be in the New Orleans French Quarter in less than an hour. On the way to New Orleans, you can stop by the Stennis Space Center Infinity Museum that features science and space exhibits.

Traveling to the west on the beach road, you can visit the Waveland Public Pier for fishing and beautiful views of the water, stop by Buccaneer State Park for a little recreation and continue to the Silver Slipper Casino for a little gaming or eat in their restaurants.

Traveling to the east on the beach road, you will be in Bay St. Louis in about 30 seconds. Bay St. Louis 'Old Town' has restaurants, shopping, antiques, a coffee house, and bike and kayak rentals. Hollywood Casino that features The Bridges golf course is also located in Bay St. Louis.

This area is still rebuilding from Hurricane Katrina so it is very quiet and relaxing, but there is plenty to do and see!!

Guided fishing trips are available, but reservations must be made in advance.

About Darlene

We love living on the beach. We built the first 'Little House' in 1986. We were 'weekenders' for many years and dreaded going home on Sundays. When an opportunity came for us to move to Waveland permanently, we did!

Darlene purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Darlene chose Waveland

When Hurricane Katrina destroyed the 'Little House' and the 'Big House' in 2005, we built the smaller house first so that my husband and I could have a place to live while we designed and built the big house. We lived in the little house for 4 years and rented it to a friend for a year.

It was sitting there empty, so we decided to list it with VRBO. We have used VRBO several time ourselves and like it.

What makes this cottage unique

The house is only 100 steps to the beach and a great walking and bike path. The views and sunsets are great.

The convenient location is only 10 minutes to the restaurants and activities in Waveland and Bay St. Louis.

"The Little House"

"The Little House"
  • 5 of 5
We just returned from our week long stay at the "The Little House". We enjoyed our time there and the beach was so close and we loved just walking across the street and going straight into the Gulf. The beach was nice and the white sand is what we were wanting. This is the perfect place to go if your looking for peace and quiet, no crowds to deal with and thats what we were looking for during our beach time. Plenty to do as we went to Stennis Space Center and took the tour (Well worth it) then to New Orleans for the afternoon. Make sure you go the "Ship Island" and spend the day, we observed several types of fish, stingray and dolphins. The restaurants were fine and driving around Bay St. Louis was enjoyable. The drive along the beach all the way to Gulfport was nice and short. The owner's (Darlene and Henry) were very nice and gave us plenty of information on what to do and where to go. This "Little House" was very nice and up to date and we could see the water from the kitchen window and sitting on the wrap around porch was enjoyable as we had lunch out there several day's. I would recommend this property to anyone and we plan on returning there.

Nice and Clean

  • 4 of 5
This was a very nice place to stay, and the water was viewable from the house. It was very clean and cozy. However, we never met the owners. It seemed strange to us and gave us a unwelcomed feeling.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry that we did not get to meet you, but since your visit was from Christmas Day to New Years, our schedule was quite hectic with family and our paths never crossed at the right time of day. We do not like to visit our guests early in the morning or at night.

I assure you that we are very welcoming people and have many times invited our guests to lunch, Mardi Gras parades, to watch fire works, for rides on our boat, etc.

I hope that you will still keep us in mind for future visits.

The Little House

  • 5 of 5
I was looking for a quiet get-away for the Thanksgiving weekend. I now want to move to Waveland, Mississippi. The owners were so kind and thoughful, the house was both charming and elegant, the weather was perfect, the beach gave respite, and everything was exactly as "advertised." If too many good things are shared, I'll never be able to find an available date to return! Thank you so very much...for everything. My heart was lighter when I returned home, and I am looking at the calendar almost every day to determine when I can come back. May God continue to bless you and your family! (And my offer to let you adopt me so I can live at the Little House still stands!)

My boyfriend and I stayed in the "Little House" for three wonderful nights (July 10-12). We wanted something that was close to the beach but secluded. This is PERFECT for that. The house has everything one would need and is literally steps from the beach. Many times we were the only ones on the beach....you can't get more secluded than that :-) We definitely plan on returning to the Little House again...and again! Thanks to the owners - We loved it!

"Our "Relax from Realty Place"

"Our "Relax from Realty Place"
  • 5 of 5
Our 7 nights were absolutely perfect from day one. We loved the beach; talk about private, there were times we were totally alone because this is not a "hotel haven" community with crowded beaches. It's residential on the beach. Therefore, quiet and comfort, relaxation all the way. The owners go out of their way to make your stay perfect. Don't bring anything but your clothes; the house has everything you could imagine. We loved the porch and sitting with our coffee in the mornings or late evenings just talking watching the ocean. A "Couple's haven!"
