Ocean Springs House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

“Undisturbed, quiet, and peaceful” describes the setting of this beautiful gulf front retreat. The home is delightfully relaxing and beautifully furnished. Whether you bring your golf clubs, a fishing pole, or a good book, you are sure to enjoy your stay!!

The lapping waves of the Gulf of Mexico are ten steps from your balcony where the only sounds you will hear are from the seagulls. You may even witness two crabs playing on the beach, but for sure you will be enchanted by the natural beauty of this property. This beach is in it's natural state, therefore we strongly recommend that you wear some type of foot wear on the beach.

Although located seemingly miles away from civilization, this gulf front home in Ocean Springs is only 20 minutes from the casinos of the Mississippi Gulf Coast. For the shopper, there is a substantial commercial area (shops, restaurants, movie theatre, etc.) within a 10-15 minute drive. If golf is your game, you will be delighted to find the St. Andrews Golf Course two miles down the road.

The home has just been completed and is furnished in sleek, polished décor. You may entertain friends and relax in the comfortable family room with plenty of seating. There is a 37” flat screen television in the family room which is equipped with Direct TV service (no network channels). Take in an unsurpassed view of the gulf on our balcony with outdoor furnishings just off the family room.

Enjoy cooking a meal for your family in the gourmet kitchen with stainless steel appliances. You will find all the kitchen gadgets and dinnerware needed in our fully stocked kitchen. There is table seating for six in the sunny breakfast area. The water is provided by a well resulting in occasional low water pressure.

The master suite is elegantly decorated and has a comfortable queen size bed outfitted with luxurious linens. There is an outdoor balcony off the master bedroom and a master closet with ample space. The master bathroom is oversized and designed in contemporary Caribbean style. You will enjoy double vanities with granite countertops, a bathtub/shower, and plenty of space to dress.

There are two guest bedrooms. One is playfully decorated with youngsters in mind. It has one twin bed ( with a trundle bed underneath) and a bunk bed with trundle. The room sleeps 5. The other guest bedroom has a queen bed and could serve as a second master bedroom. Both guest bedrooms have brand new, comfortable mattresses and fine linens. There is a tastefully decorated shared bathroom with tub/shower. An additional television for DVD use only is located in the second bedroom.

About Michelle Garner

We are a large family that loves to travel. We have been to several places around the world, but always seem to find Ocean Springs is one of our favorite resting spots.

Michelle Garner purchased this house in 2009

Why Michelle Garner chose Mississippi

Our family of 5 purchased this property because of the seclusion it offered and the getaway that we were searching for. Its right outside the city and located on a natural beach so we don't have to deal with sunbathers and beach combers, just hermit crabs and pelicans! We originally purchased this property in March of 2005. Then Katrina blew in and totally wiped the original house and its foundation out to sea. We had to use navigation map with land plot to even find the site! So we rebuilt in 2009 and have our perfect beach home.

What makes this house unique

This beach house is located on an isolated part of Belle Fontaine Beach in Ocean Springs. There are only about 20-25 houses located up and down the street. We do not have any direct neighbors on either side of the home and it sits about 10 STEPS to the water. The beach is perfect for sunning and relaxing with some tunes. I enjoy getting up in the morning and taking my coffee onto the porch and watching the pelicans fly overhead and sometimes am lucky enough to see dolphins playing right off the shore. Its ideal for the family or person who really want to break from the commercial vacation and relax in quiet. Its like your own island but within 15-20 minutes to Ocean Springs historical downtown square and the casinos. Its also great because New Orleans and Mobile are both only an hour and a half away, great for day escapes. We love this place and are confidant you will too!

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I was looking for a quiet, private and relaxing place that allowed pets. This place was perfect. I loved waking up every morning going out on the deck to watch the dolphins, boats and all the birds. It was so nice being that close to the water. The home was fully equipped with everything. This is our #1 vacation spot now. It will be an every year trip.

Simply Paradise

  • 5 of 5

I miss the beach house so much! Everything there was perfect. It was like waking up in paradise every morning. I loved the window by the water and left it open every night to hear the ocean waves. I wouldn't have changed a thing!

Quiet Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This property is right on the gulf. During high tide the water is lapping at the deck posts. The weather was chilly so we can't tell you much about the swimming but the water seems shallow. The house was immaculate and well stocked. We enjoyed just sitting on the deck enjoying the sunsets and the beautiful sea breeze. We also took long walks on the beach. I've heard people have seen a lot of wild life but we mostly only saw sea birds. The owner is very helpful and I would definitely recommend staying here.

Owner's Response: Joe, we hope that this vacation was what you had imagined. We try to keep the home as ready for guests as we can so that all they need to do is relax. It was a bit chilly which is not unusual for our area the last of March, that last cold snap, so that's probably why you didn't get the chance to see as much wildlife. Please return again as the Spring and early Fall are wonderful for sitting and enjoying the scene. Thanks for your kind review!

Beautiful roomy home with gorgeous views!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this home for the month of December. Our daughter and son in law(military) live close by. What a surprise when we walked in the door, it is much larger inside than it looks in the pictures! The views are gorgeous! We never got tired of sitting on the deck just enjoying the gulf views, sunrise and sunset should not be missed! The house had everything we needed to have a great stay, we wouldn't hesitate to rent again!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words about our home. We are so glad that you and your family were able to be close during the holidays and that we could help provide a home that was comfortable enough to feel like "home away from home". We look forward to having you stay with us again!

Great Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a blast in this beach house. The view from the porch was awesome. We will be visiting again. If you are in to fishing for catfish the front porch is the place for it.
