About Barbara Long Bogan

We are the Long siblings. Our parents bought this location in 1980. It was our "Fishing House" where all the family gatherings took place. After Katrina destroyed the original house, our mother rebuilt the southern plantation style

home. She was up in age at that point and living in Houston around family, so she decided she wanted to share her "Piece of Paradise" with others.

Why Barbara Long Bogan chose Gulf Hills

Our parents grew up in Mississippi and wanted a place on the water. The developer of this area kept this prime location for himself. It is the only location that has a natural habitat peninsula. The locals can be seen fishing this peninsula because it is a favorite spot for them.

Nature is all around! The views are amazing with the fish jumping, birds flying by and swooping down for food, dolphins going out to sea in the mornings, and boats coming and going.

The peacefulness is sublime. When you arrive on the property your tensions melt away. It is quite and very calm. Yet a few minutes drive and there is all the action you could possibly want.

What makes this house unique

This is the only location that has a nature reserve peninsula and bird sanctuary there on the property and is

located within minutes to casinos, restaurants,

and shopping. The best of both worlds at your fingertips.

Absolutely the best house and location

  • 5 of 5

My husband had the honor of playing with his band at the Hard Rock Casino and we traveled all the way down from Massachusetts. Having relatives in NC and Alabama and Florida, we decided to make a family reunion out of it. This house was beyond our expectations. First Barbabra is so wonderful with her communication. Then the location is simply was only 15 minutes from the casinos and the quaint town of Ocean Springs is a shoppers dream come true. Then the house.....beautifully decorated, extremely comfortable and what sets this house apart from ANY of the many I have rented was the generosity of the owners with amenities....all of the houses I have rented before were completely bare when we arrived which meant we had to go out and buy EVERYTHING down to the salt and pepper containers. When you are traveling by plane you cannot bring stuff or take it home with you and it is such a waste. This house has all the supplies and and it was such a nice feature. There really is such a thing as "southern hospitality" and this was it. The house looks exactly as it is photographed and the rocking chairs on the porch over looking the beautiful water was how we all started and ended our day. Hopefully we will be back again and no reason to look anywhere else since we will definitely rent here again. Thank you Barbara and Brian for making our trip down south so very enjoyable!!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your glowing review. We work very hard on making a GOOD SOUTHERN IMPRESSION for all our guest. We try to make our home stand out in every way we can: from the many rocking chairs on the back veranda to watch the fish jumping, boats, and dolphins, the 600 count sheets on all the beds, providing a fully stocked kitchen, staples and spices for the kitchen, laundry supplies for those who might need them, WIFI, and good cable incase a Big Game is coming up during your trip. If you come back to this area, we will be "happy to turn the lights on for you southern style". Just let us know.

Back Bay house was incredible! The view was great. Barbara was and her home were a dream.

  • 5 of 5

Back bay house was gorgeous and the view was incredible, can’t say enough about the time spent sitting on the porch in those rocking chairs. The home was comfortable and well appointed with anything you may need. Let me tell you the beds were better than our own at home! So cozy, and plenty of extra pillows and blankets if needed.

Where the home sits is quiet and peaceful, the sunsets are beautiful. And the location made it easy to take day trips in to Mobile and New Orleans. The master bathroom shower could fit a small army of people and has a rainfall shower head.

Barbara was quick to respond to my one phone call, and answered any email promptly. The WiFi was fast. All the rooms in the home have lots of natural light and are spacious with high ceilings.

If I had to dig deep to find a flaw in this home it would be if you are traveling with someone who has mobility issues (my Mom) please take note that the dining table is bar height, and the bar stools in the kitchen are counter height. This wasn’t an issue overall though because the house had a folding table in the master closet and padded leather chairs in the master bedroom, so we placed those out so my Mom could dine while sitting in a regular chair.

I can’t say enough wonderful things about this property and it’s owner. Now, we’ll just have to come up with an excuse to come back soon!!!

Perfect Gulfcoast Southern Hospitality

  • 4 of 5

This home provided a much needed escape while being close to Biloxi and all it has to offer. The home sits on the Bay across from Biloxi and provides beautiful sunset views each evening. The home is spacious and comfortable with everything you need. Be sure to bring your fishing gear as there is a dock behind the house. We caught trout and flounder with little effort. The wide porch and rockers were a great place to watch the pelicans and birds. Biloxi casinos and restaurants and I-10 were an easy drive from the home.

Best view ever!

  • 5 of 5

This place was awesome! We were a group of 9 women, and had such a good time. The house was very spacious, and catered to our big group very well. The porch was the best part, if we were at the house you could bet there was someone on the porch at all times, from when we woke up until we went to sleep. We saw dolphins in the bay the first day, the weather was great, and always had a breeze. Also, we took taxis when we went to downtown OS and it was maybe a 5 minute ride, about $10 for an entire van, very affordable. Overall we had an amazing time and I definitely recommend staying here!
