Overview

Mississippi House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

This is a retro 50's bungalo with 2 bedrooms[now with a king bed and twin with trundle] and 2 full bathrooms,located of the beach in Biloxi,Mississippi. My husband and I grew up in New Orleans,La. and spend alot of time on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. We always wanted to live on the coast. This home was purchased after Katrina in 2006. Luckily ,there was no flooding mainly due to the fact it is located in the highest land point in Biloxi. Our street didn't even loose the two houses on Hwy 90 facing the gulf.

This house was our full time home for two years. We have moved into a larger home nearby with the thought that we will someday return to our small peach colored cottage.

The house has two bedrooms,one contains a King size bed and the other room has twin trundle beds.This bedroom has a 19'' tv/dvd combonation. The other bedroom contains two twin beds. This house will sleep 4.

The home is one story,with doorways wide enough for a wheelchair.Built in the 50's ,the retro flair remains. Both bathrooms contain the larger square shallow tubs from the 50's. In hot retro colors too.There is a full kitchen with a washer and dryer,dishwasher and a gas range. All floors are wood or tile. There are some area rugs.The house is cute and charming. Space is ample for a couple.

The backyard is fully fenced and there is a large covered back porch and a back door with a doggy door. A small gas grill is provided.The backyard and front yard have a large oak tree providing great afternoon shade. There is a single car driveway leading to a single car carport.

The location of this property is one of it's greatest features. No matter what time of the year you stay here,you will always be close to what is going on in Biloxi. No fighting traffic for Mardi Gras,4th of July, watching Crusin the Coast,even gaming at the famous Beau Rivage is only a short walk away.Local grocery store is close by along with shopping and a movie theater.Afternoon and morning walks on the beach are only a thought away. Quiet area but only steps away from everything Biloxi has to offer.

The house is available as a monthly rental. Long term rental available at a discounted rate. 91 nights are longer, 1700 a month total charge. No subleasing allowed. This is the perfect place for snowbirds, AirForce/Military on short term assignment, film crews, and casino works relocating to area. Limit to 4 overnight guests.

New Lighthouse park is 2 blocks away. House backs up to historic Old Biloxi Cemetary. Doggy door on back door. Back yard is fully fenced with privacy 6 foot fencing.

Keywords: Retro 50's vintage flare with modern amenities. One story house 1200 square feet ,1/2 block off Biloxi's beach. Fantastic location,witihin easy walking distance to many of Biloxi's highlights.

About Owner/Property Manager

Getting close to retirement,we purchased this house to be our retirement home.We hope to provide you with a pleasent home away from home feeling and will be happy to try to assist with any special needs you have.We live closeby,still working as a nurse and business owner.

We love being near the gulf. Just looking at the beach and water makes life seem carefree even when it's not.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this house in 2006

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Mississippi

We grew up visiting the coast and always wanted to move here. The time came that we could buy property locally and knew it had to be close to the beach. We wanted an area near downtown Biloxi with a good neighborhood feel. Only a house would do, condos just don't feel like home and home is what we wanted. We lived full time for two years in this house and plan to someday return to full time residance there again.

What makes this house unique

We love the area.My husband takes morning walks daily on the beach. I like to take my four year old grandaughter to the beach when the tide is out to find shells,hermit crabs,check out what the ocean has washed a shore and build sand castles at dusk. We also enjoy walking out on the fishing pier to check out the days catch.This has been a great spot to watch the spring Blessing of the Fleet, December's Christmas Boat Parade and 4th of July beach fireworks.

We take in the free family movie nights on Biloxi Town Green in the summer and fall and always enjoy the free October historic Biloxi Cemetary tour.Local arts and craft festivals abound and always offer unique finds and great food.Biloxi Farmer's Market on Tuesdays and Thursdays offer the best fresh produce and plants to be found.

Gaming,night life and first class entertainers are here at the casinos,along with buffetts that you won't believe. These buffetts offer special days of senior discounts which helps when trying to budget.

This property has a fantastic location. Anything you can want to do in the area is only minutes away. The Lynn Meadows Childrens Discovery Center is straight down hwy 90 about 8 miles. They have one Friday afternoon a month that is free. Of course the adult playground, the casinos are plentyful and fun to discover each ones unique features. The Beau Rivage's Christmas decoratoins are a wonder for all ages. This is a great place for those Christmas card photos.Santa has been on hand for free photos the last two years.The IP Casino does alot of benifit projects for the community and I love when they have paint and pal classes. You finiish a painting in one evening and I promise it will look good. There is the Mary C. Center in Ocean springs that offers all types of different arts and crafts classes. In December each local town has Christmas open Houses on Sunday afternoon and it's a real treat to see some unique homes and get won derful ideas on Christmas decorating.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place to stay. Convenient to all areas of MS Gulf Coast, less than one block from beach, yet very peaceful. Landlord was extremely nice, met us at 9:30 pm and had the house cool for us. Everything was exactly as described - no surprises. Love the master bedroom set. Recommend this location 100% for adults and families. Hope to stay here again in the future.

Cute house, great location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our trip to Biloxi and this house provided a short walk to the beach, easy drives to the main destinations in Biloxi (5 min or less) and had great access to other destinations on the Mississipi coast. The house was well maintained, clean, and had plenty of room, especially with a spacious master. My partially disabled Father-In-Law was comfortable in the guest room and was able to get around the house comfortably. Our dogs enjoyed the backyard and the walks through a quiet neighborhood.

The decor is mid-century as depicted in the photos of the property. The original tile and fixtures in the bathrooms are charming. There are train tracks a few blocks from the house and trains pass through several times during the day/night. We didn't find this a problem and it did not cause my wife problems sleeping even though she is a light sleeper.

The owners were very nice and helpful in recommendations around town. Overall, we would recomend this property for anyone looking to enjoy the Mississippi coast while avoiding the usual hotel/casino options.

Enjoyable

  • 4 of 5

The description of the house was accurate. The photos provided accurately relfect the rental's appearance and amenities. It was very clean and well maintained. The owner was very helpful in answering our questions and gave us a very nice tour of the house after our arrival. I would recommend this property to our friends and relatives. If we ever make it back to Biloxi, I would definitely look into going back to the house. The beach is the reason why we chose to go to Biloxi; however, during our stay, it rained the entire time, so we weren't able to enjoy it. We went to the outlet stores in Gulfport and went sightseeing. We saw the art work of the local artist who carved out the trees that were destroyed during Hurricane Katrina.

Our Enjoyable Stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I truly enjoyed our stay at the Vintage Beach Bungalo in Biloxi, Mississippi. When we first arrived, we were thrilled with the colorful, cheerful decor. The wood floors were gorgeous, and the bungalow was more spacious than we had imagined. It was clean and well maintianed. My family of five and the dog had plenty of space and very comfortable living arrangements. Our teens really enjoyed the one block walk to the beach. Not only was it the beach, but it was the high activity center of the beach that was only a block away from the bungalow. My husband and I were within walking distance of the casinos and many tourist attractions. The modern conveniences afforded us within the bungalow included a magnificent outside grill, a fantastic kitchen, and washer and dryer. The owner was very personable and accommodating. Our only regret was that our stay was too short, but we certainly plan to return soon. I highly recommend this property if you are visiting Biloxi.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

I was very impressed with everything about the bungalo including the location. The pictures do not do justice to this house. Everything is clean and well maintained. The owner was very nice and easy to work with. I look forward to staying there again in the near future.

Great place to stay!! Excellent property owners!!

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival owner was readily available to deliver keys and give tour of property. Owner was also very knowledgeable of the area and its tourist attractions. The location was centrally located between the beach, casinos and shopping. The home was very clean and comfortable and warmly decorated at a great value. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for convenience to the Biloxi sights and beaches. After returning home I was very impressed with how fast the deposit was returned. I would also like to thank the owners for their high ethics in returning family jewelry my daughter had accidently left behind. If and when we return to Biloxi area we will definately check on the availability of this property first. Thanks Jan and Jerry for a great time!!!!

Beau Rivage Casino

Mid century modern home, surrounded by the same type homes or older. Easy walk to new Lighthouse park with it's playground area and small scenic walking trail. Also within a short walking distance to Biloxi Visitor's Center, Beau Rivage Casino, Hard Rock Casino and new MGM Baseball Park. Local grocery is only a block away.

This location is south of the railroad tracks, one block off the beach. You will be near all the activities in Biloxi and also close to Gulfport and Ocean Springs. New Orleans is an hour drive away, Mobile is less the an hour away.

Best thing about this bungalow is you will get a sense of truly living here, being part of the community. This is perfect for snow birds, someone wanting to try out living here before purchasing their own home, great for military service men and women going through schools at Keesler Air Force Base. This home and location is more about joining a lifestyle and a community and less about the hectic vacation. This is a rental requiring a minimum stay of 30 days. Discount given for 91 day stays or longer.

Biloxi is rebuilding from the devastation of Katrina ten years ago. We are all so proud to see our coast shine again. You will have great museums,shopping,local parks, fishing, boating, many festivals, new baseball games featuring our Biloxi Shuckers, island trips to Ship island,local history events,Civil War history, ghost hunting, antiquing, great local estate sales,wonderful golf courses[ the oldest public course in Mississippi here] Casino gaming which also offer great entertainment and shows ,along with spas and great dining.There are plenty of activities to get involved in without spending a great deal of money. The Biloxi Synder Center offer a membership for swimming,exercise classes and use of their facility . There is also an OLLIE program at Gulf Coast college offering seminars and one time classes in all areas of interest. You will also find many art classes that are offered by local galleries and museums. Of course there is the beach and sometimes a walk along the beach is what we need. During the year you will find many local events that are unique to our area, Crusin the Coast in Oct., Peter Anderson Art Festival in Nov, many local Christmas boat parades, along with home tours in Dec, Mardi Gras in Feb, St Patrick's parades, food and festival in March, Crawfish festival in April, June hosts Blueberry Festival, July celebrate summer with fishing rodeo and fireworks, Aug will be full of sun activities, Sept. brings in slightly cooler nights and is a great time for casino fun. Lots to do, lots to eat and a great area to visit or call home.
