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 or do not want stairs to climb.

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.

Great Time

  • 5 of 5

Ours girls trip to Mississippi was a huge success. The house was very clean, well supplied and has a beautiful location. Close to so many things to do but a quiet place to set on the porch in the morning and return to at night.

Magnolia , Ms.

The Kennedy's Best Family Gulfcoast Experience !

  • 5 of 5

We recently rented this home and I have to say we have rented many homes and Condos in the area for many years and this experience by far was the best ever . My family loves to fish and so my son chartered a boat for Saturday morning . After they got back that morning they took a lunch break and it was on to fishing off the piers . There were far more fish caught from the property than the charter . It was so nice sitting on the balcony with a glass of tea and watching my 2 sons and 3 grandsons having a blast catching several different kinds of fish . Day and night fishing were great . Saw dolphins all 3 days we were there . This house has every amenity imaginable . The owner Barbara and manager Vickie treat you like family . We visit the gulf coast regularly as we are only 3 hours away so we are very familiar to all the attractions and nice restaurants in the area and had plans to do some of those things but after settling into the house no one wanted to leave for anything . I will be planning our next outing soon and it will be upon availability of this home . Thanks again Barbara for your hospitality and can't wait to come back !

Deep South relaxation at it's finest..

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home in a secluded, scenic setting. We brought my father here five yrs ago for his 65th b-day, we all loved it. We told him we'd bring him back for his 70th..and we did a couple of weeks back. Barbara, (the homeowner), has done a wonderful job in the last five yrs of restoring the interior of the home to absolute five-star quality. Every detail is covered.. Numerous rocking chairs on the upper deck are perfect for coffee drinking in mornings, and scotch drinking at night. Reminded me so much of the upstairs porch at "The Columns Hotel" in Nola, except with a much more scenic, private view.. The fishing pier setup is excellent as well. Terrific location to town and very close to the incredible burger/craft beer at Govt. Street Grocery, great seafood at Mikey's on the bayou, and Beau Rivage to get your gambling fix on. Cannot say enough about how special this place is. To quote my father from our trip, "If I ever win the lottery, I'm making an offer to Barbara.."
