Hal and Kimberly Vaughan both born and raised right here on the Gulf Coast in South Mississippi. We have 4 children, Trinity, Michelle, Little Hal, and Pierce, ages 38 - 20. We are a retired business owner and housewife with an empty nest and extra home.

Kimberly or Hal Vaughan purchased this house in 2008

We have owned a summer home on Belle Fontaine Beach since 1961 and lived here permanently since 1980. We have two homes side by side and after our youngest daughter left for Ole Miss we decided to live in the smaller home. We live next door to rental in the small Pink House and renting our Big Green Mini Mansion. We are available for any questions or problems and happy to help with needs such as activities, directions, restaurants etc.

Otherwise we RESPECT YOUR TOTAL PRIVACY!

If you have children, just let us know and we'll make sure our crab traps are baited and hopefully full of crabs! Interested in crabbing or fishing from our pier? Let us know and we'll do our best to show you how to catch crabs, speck, flounder and red fish! Night tie is the best time to fish. Crabbing during the day.

Our View is Fabulous! Either Sunrise or Sunset, both are outstanding! Our home has 12' ceilings and all rooms are large and open, with many windows giving you the look, the feel and the smell of the Mississippi Gulf Coast something we have loved our entire life. While sitting on our porch you can see Horn Island, Round Island, Dolphins/Porpoises almost every day, what a sight! Shrimp Boats, Pelicans, Eagles, Egrets, Sandhill Cranes, Mullet Jumping and now and then we have a deer or a fox on the beach, you never know!

EXACTLY WHAT WE WERE LOOKING FOR!

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed in Ocean Springs for the past 6 years at other beach houses and I have to say that this one has been the best. I believe we will search no further because this house has it all! We particularly loved the pool... we used it everyday. Fishing and crabbing off the pier was awesome and we got to eat boiled crabs for the first time in years since Hurricane Katrina (we are locals to the New Orleans area). The house was amazing in its features and amenities... the heated toilets were a nice touch. :) Very clean as the description reads and the pictures just do not do it justice. Hal and Kim were so nice and were very accomodating, bringing us propane for the pit and a mixer when I couldn't find one. Having them near was a plus considering the experiences we have had at other Ocean Springs houses where the owners were in other states and you were dealing with a management company. This was the first house in Ocean Springs that we could actually use the water... the ice maker was VERY appreciated. Our family vacation was so enjoyable and everyone got to do what they wanted between the fishing, boating, swimming, tanning, paying pool, eating or just hanging out. It truly was an awesome getaway and I'm already planning our trip back!!

WONDERFUL CUSTOMER SERVICE

  • 5 of 5
While I did not get to stay at this property for unforeseen I would like to comment on the wonderful customer service I received. Kimberly was very nice from the moment I talked to her via email and very informative of all the places to go to and see. If I had any questions she was always quick to reply. Unfortunately, I was not able to stay at this beautiful property so I had to cancel my stay. Kimberly was very understanding and kind. In addition very prompt in taking the next steps to refund the total I've paid for. Thank you Kimberly for your understanding and I will definitely in the future would love to stay at your beautiful home. 5 stars!

IMPECCABLY ACCOMMODATING

  • 5 of 5
Very much represented and more. Our 2 grown guys and their spouses along with a newborn baby were so relaxed and comfortable for a weeks stay. The house should be a model for vacation getaways. Cool,impeccably tidy,well-maintained,well-equipped. Hal and Kimberly rolled out the welcome mat like we had already met them. We could have laughed more with them sharing stories. Thank you so much- it is truly the best kept secret!

EXCELLENT HOME

  • 5 of 5
Myself and a handful of friends stayed at this home for a golf trip in April and it could not have been a better home to stay in and the home owners were tremendous. They are very welcoming and go above and beyond to help make your stay as enjoyable and low stress as possible. I would highly recommend this home for any trip seekers.

PERFECT! RELAXING! REMOTE! GREAT OWNERS!

  • 5 of 5
Kimberly and Hal are the best hosts ever! True southern hospitality was shown to us and my son! Hal cleaned our blue crabs for us that we trapped. They helped us learn how to trap the crabs from start to finish. They even mailed to me my son's 3 pair of shoes that we left behind, free of charge. Easy transaction to book the house, detailed driving instructions, etc helped us have a low stress vacation. This was the perfect house and location. So quiet and peaceful, and the pictures do not do it justice. It's a must see with your own eyes. It's perfect for relaxing and having a real vacation without multiple tourists around. You can walk on the beach and see no one but the dolphins, fish, and birds. The house was so clean, organized, and perfect. My son loved the bunk beds. The kitchen was large, organized, and perfect for cooking up our blue crabs. We grilled hotdogs on the gas grill on the side patio for lunch one day. Hal would turn on the hot tub nightly for us. The pool was clean and perfect for relaxing and swimming. The peer and the fishing were fantastic. We ordered fresh seafood the day of our arrival to be delivered to our front door with the help of Kimberly. She has a great notebook with helpful information on local attractions and restaurants. Everything was perfect and so relaxing. Wish I could live there! It's definitely a dream home, and we will be back again next year! The heated toilets and heated tile in the bathrooms are definitely an added bonus. Kimberly and Hal are great with communicating with you while you are there to help with any questions that you may have. The large screen TVs, DirecTV, and wireless internet are great, too. You can drive to Biloxi or Gulfport if you want to see the tourist attractions. It's a perfect remote, peaceful, and relaxing getaway from the hustle of daily life. It's truly, magnificent! Thank you Kimberly and Hal for giving us the perfect vacation!!!! See you next year!

VIDRINE FAMILY GET AWAY

  • 5 of 5
Where do I start? It was simply wonderful. Everything that we could want and more. The owners Kimberly and Hal were so accomadating with any questions or needs that we had. They were so good to us and our grandchildren and made our stay simply amazing. The home is absolutely beautiful. The pool, the ocean, the pier, the sun rise and sun set were simply wonderful. I know if our family is wanting to go back with us they had a great time as well.
It was my birthday and Easter weekend so we were ready to have fun. On Easter morning after the Easter Bunny had arrived (our grandbabies are 1, 2 and 3 years old) they hunted eggs on the lawn. We took Easter pictures with the water in the background along the pier.
I know i am rambling but there are so many good things that it is hard to put it down in any order.
I will simply say if you are looking for a good time with your family this is it.
If you are looking for a quite time to just get away - this is it.
If you are looking for a romantic time - this is it.
Everything in the brochure is fact - it is a beautiful place.
Kimberly and Hal were amazing people and really went out of their way to make our stay wonderful.
Definitely worth every penny spent!
