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 Mississippi

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.

We also have a lift ( outside glass elevator) for anyone who can not climb stairs.

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.

A Must See!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed staying at the beautiful Back Bay Biloxi home. The home was furnished very nicely. The view from the balcony was always pleasant. Our mornings began with a cup of coffee in hand while sitting outside in the rockers and the evenings ended the same except with a glass of wine. It was so peaceful and relaxing. The kids enjoyed playing with the outdoor games the owner provided downstairs. The guys enjoyed fishing by the pier. While the ladies enjoyed the convenience of the shopping centers. We had a delightful time.

Perfect vacation rental - total satisfaction!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at the Back Bay Biloxi Waterfront Retreat over Fourth of July Week - and the entire experience was amazing from start to finish. The home is exactly as the photos depicted - absolutely beautiful and very spacious, inside and out! It was the ideal vacation retreat for our family, offering something for all ages to enjoy. We had a several in our group who took full advantage of the dock, fishing from sun up to sun down. The location is also ideal - super close to golf course, restaurants and 11 minutes from the Biloxi casinos and beach. The views from the rocking chairs on the porch were amazing every morning and every evening. Everyone in our group - from age 11 to 56 - said they would absolutely love to come back - - and I think we will! All you need to bring is your clothes, your groceries and your fishing pole! (I think we may bring our boat next time just to explore the waters more) I would highly recommend this home to anyone - especially those looking for an exciting vacation away from the busy commercial tourist areas.

2nd year staying here, about to book our third for next year!

  • 5 of 5

We love this place! Our son attends the USM Sea Camp for kids all week and my husband loves the fishing pier and isolation of this house.

It is fully stocked, very comfortable, super clean and overall just a beautiful place to relax and unwind.

Barbara is a delight to communicate with and we plan to book again for our third year soon!!

June Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Back Bay Biloxi home in June, 2017 for 5 days. We came down for our son's wedding from Michigan. I would highly recommend this home to stay in for a large group of people. The home was clean, spacious, well stocked, and Barbara is right on top of everything. She answers all emails and phone calls immediately. The location was perfect. It was so nice getting up in the morning and sitting on the porch overlooking the water. It's with 5-10 minutes of Ocean Springs and Biloxi. In spite of tropical storm Cindy making her way through Mississippi, we had a wonderful time. I would highly recommend this home for anyone looking to spend a few days in the area. We would definitely stay there again.

Great family get away

  • 4 of 5

House was clean, and in good condition. Fish were not biting very well, but we caught a lot of crabs for a crab boil. Plenty of room for the whole family. Would definitely stay here again.
