About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Welcome to the River! Our 2 bedroom 2 bath 1000 square foot open floor plan getaway is directly on the Jourdan River in Jourdan River Shores. It is tastefully decorated and ready for entertaining or relaxing. There is a launch nearby to join in on the boating or jet skiing action and a 20x30 foot dock on the property. A boat lift is available. We are not in a 'no wake' zone and you can enjoy hours of entertainment watching skiers and wake boarders zip by. Navigate your boat through the River to St. Louis Bay and out into the Gulf to Cat Island or Ship Island. Fishing areas are abundant.

Our raised camp was completely rebuilt in 2006 and has 2 bedrooms, each with queen beds. There is a sleeper sofa in the living room.The master bed has a 3' foam top. There is a 52' flat screen TV with Cable TV and a DVD player surrounded by a sectional sofa and easy chair. Tile floors and counter tops and stainless steel appliances are features of the fully equipped kitchen. Enjoy swinging on the large covered porches upstairs or downstairs. The large deck upstairs also has a gas grill and dining table. Downstairs is an additional bathroom, covered carport, screened room and storage room with full-size washer and dryer. There is also another large dining table and chairs and several comfortable rocking chairs. Enjoy the river life or sit and watch the action! Will also consider sale or long term rental, call for details.

'The Steamer' is just a few minutes away by boat. (Update - it is currently being rebuilt) Nearby are Restaurants, Shopping and Beaches. Both the Silver Slipper and Hollywood Casinos are a short drive away. Gulfport is a 20 minute drive with an Outlet Mall, Gulf Islands Water Park, and Charter Fishing.

New Orleans is an hours drive. The restaurants are legendary as well as the French Quarter, the mansions viewed from the streetcar on St Charles, and Bourbon Street. Take a stroll along the mighty Mississippi and have beignets and coffee at Cafe du Monde. Harrah's Casino provides gambling and entertainment. Family attractions include the Audubon Zoo, the Aquarium, the Insectarium and the Children's Museum.

Come make your own memories at our clean, comfortable, and special place that is our little piece of heaven.

Will consider long term lease as a second home.

H and H

  • 5 of 5

Our 6-week stay was absolutely great. Beautifully furnished (big screen TV) and decorated. Beds very comfortable and the kitchen fully furnished with very nice appliances, pans, dishes, etc. Loved the deck and being on the river. Located in a really nice, well-kept neighborhood near good restaurants and shopping. The owners were very helpful and pleasant to work with.

Yes, we would recommend this property for others.

Nearby family and friends a definite plus for us. Will be back next year, the good Lord willing.

We hope to return soon and stay longer next visit. : ) : )

Also the owners were very friendly and helpful. Thank you for sharing your camp with us!

Perfect Escape

  • 5 of 5

Our family came recently and had a wonderful time! It's beautifully decorated and everything needed is right there. The pictures are a pretty accurate view of what you get and they've maintained the property well. We spent most of our time on the deck, swinging and enjoying the outside space. The view of the river (especially at sunrise) is priceless and definitely a much better way to vacation than staying in a hotel!

River Home

  • 5 of 5

This home is a perfect get-away for quite and peaceful relaxation or any manner of water activities. The home is in excellent condition and very nicely decorated. Everything needed is provided. There is ample areas outside the house for cooking and entertaining and a very large deck for tanning or watching the traffic on the river. We plan to return very soon.

Great place on the river!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great weekend on the river watching all of the boaters and skiiers go by. The swing on the large covered deck upstairs was where I spent most of my time. The camp is adorable and comfortable and my husband loved the big flat screen TV! We plan to return soon!
