Mississippi 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.

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!

The cottage was lovely and very comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

My only disappointment was I was under the impression the property was on the beach not 800 feet away. I don't know what 800 ft is. The owner said it would be no problem for my 84 year old mother to walk. It wouldn't have been except for the two lane highway. It was really no problem though since we had to carry chairs, towels, books, water ect. we drove our car. At the end of our stay it was really no issue. I just wanted a beach house on the beach. I'm sure I wasn't clear......the cottage was lovely though and we really had a wonderful time.

Thank you for your hospitality.

A family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this beautiful house! The seclusion is perfect and makes you feel like no one is around, while still having full access to all the necessities like restaurants and stores. Our kids loved being able to spend a whole week at the beach and not having to drive, just a quick walk down the path and we were there.

Perfect family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cottage last week and it was just wonderful. The home is clean, bright, and comfortable. We enjoyed the huge yard (outdoor space is essential with two young boys) and were able to run around, play wiffle ball, swing, and walk to the beach. The boys loved watching the birds and the geckos. The front porch was a perfect place to sit and drink coffee in the mornings.

The house is very private, yet close to many restaurants and attractions. We would love to come back for another visit.

Long Beach Memories

  • 5 of 5

We spent five enjoyable relaxing weeks at Memories. It was clean, well appointed and met all of our expectations. Being able to watch the birds from the patio was special for us. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there, including the coziness of the fireplace and the spacious grounds. We felt right at home, minus the snow. We wouldn't hesitate to consider this property again. We have visited this area three times in the last 10 years and we continue to find things to explore and enjoy.
