Long Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

New cottage and furnishings on eight manicured acres of Live Oaks with a small bayou running through the property. This is a very quiet get away for bird watching and letting time go by making MEMORIES. .

This property has been in the family since 1875. Hurricane Katrina destroyed 14 family homes at this location. A large front porch is good for catching the evening breezes from the Gulf. The cottage has a full kitchen, with all new appliances, granite countertops, and a coffee station. The large living area includes a gas fireplace, and flat-screen TV; bedrooms are beautifully appointed, and there are ceiling fans in all the rooms. The property includes a security system for protection of its occupants and its contents.

Very cozy

4 aging sisters looking for a getaway near the beach. We had some great sunrises. The cottage is so cozy . We found the perfect place for peace and privacy and had too much fun. Cheers to a great vacation.

Memories Has Been Full of Memories

  • 5 of 5

My son is stationed in Gulfport and we have stayed in Memories a number of times while visiting our grandchildren. Memories has been our home away from home. It has been a wonderful place to have the grandchildren over and also have time away for ourselves. The house is very comfortable and well appointed. When we have stayed at Memories on special holidays the house has been decorated for the occasion. The Morrisons are very hospitable yet are mindful of their guests privacy. They have been quick to respond to issues which have rarely arisen.

The neighborhood is quiet and safe and just a short walk to the beach. The grandkids have played in the tree swings for hours.

Unfortunately, our son and daughter in law are being transferred to San Diego in the very near future and our last stay at Memories will likely be our last. We are grateful for having had the opportunity to stay at Memories. We will miss the Morrisons and the home but we will have our memories of grandchildren and family time there forever.

Wonderful Stay

  • 4 of 5

This home is beautiful, and Sandra was great to work with. The only down side we found was that this house is not set up for small children (18 month). It would be great for a family with older children, or adults.

Gorgeous, quiet cottage right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

Our family LOVED our stay at Memories Beach Cottage. We felt like we were in our own private country house but with the benefit of being right in town. It was an easy 2-3 minute drive to local restaurants and local shopping. The house was gorgeous, well supplied and well maintained. We have recommended this location to our friends and family to enjoy, as well!
