About John

Kathy grew up in New Orleans, and has family in the area. John grew up in North Carolina, and met Kathy through their mutual love of sailing.

John purchased this house in 2008

Why John chose Mississippi

Kathy's family, like a lot of people from New Orleans who have homes and cottages in the Pass, moved to Pass Christian permanently some years ago to enjoy the sailing and beach. John and Kathy have restored 3 old homes from the 20s, and jumped at the chance to own a historic home from 1890.

What makes this house unique

The front porch of our home, plus the historic nature of Seal Avenue and the Scenic Drive Historic District, made this an easy choice for us. One block to the Waterfront Memorial park, with its beautiful view through the live oaks to the Gulf, and its well equipted childrens playground, plus 3 new lighted tennis courts. The short 2 block walk to the downtown restaurants and shops, one block to the beach and the beautiful live oaks of Scenic Drive, plus the marina and yacht club 3 blocks away, make the home an ideal location as well. Want to get off the porch (it's hard to do),go kayaking on the Wolfe River and into the bayou, or take in a show at one of the many casinos 20 minutes down the Gulf. or enjoy one of many New Orleans inspired eateries close by, from elegant to quirky, you cant miss good food. Or better yet, go to New Orleans for the day (1 hour 10 minute drive from cottage to downtown NOLA )

Plan to spend some time in Bay St Louis (7 minutes) shopping the many antique and local specialty shops (sorry, no chain stores), or travel 45 minutes to quaint Ocean Springs, with its local shops and eateries.

Save time to take the Ship Island Ferry from Gulfport 11 miles out to the beautiful beaches of the Gulf Islands National Seashore.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was the perfect spot to relax after Mardi Gras and the only regret was that the stay was too short. Next time will be longer. Thanks for letting us share your lovely house. We loved both porches.

Great location and house.

We had our 9 year old granddaughter with us, she loved the house, porch and location as much as we did on our second visit. Walking distance to beach, restraunts and shopping, will stay again when visiting the gulf coast, thanks.

Lovely historical house

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time that our family has stayed at this location. This house has so much charm and history. Our kids loved being able to stay on the screened porch without having to worry about bugs. The property is just a few blocks away from the beach and once you are there, you pretty much own the beach.
