Overview

Mississippi Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Studio, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

The studio apartment contains about 500 square feet and consist of a separate dining and kitchen area. There is a full sized refrigerator, a toaster oven, microwave, crockpot and electric skillet and a stove in this unit. There is a table with four chairs in the breakfast nook. The bedroom has a full size pillow top mattress, antique furniture and two windows. The sitting room has a sofa bed. There is a full bath with shower and tub. All dining and kitchen utensils are furnished and extra towels and bed linens are in the apartment. The apartment is large enough to handle two or three people comfortably and we thought that it would provide travelers with a larger than motel room space as well as cooking facilities and at a cost that is less than the price of a basic motel room. There is a small fenced- in yard, along with the much larger grounds. There are oak trees and palmettos in the yard, and wind chimes and bird feeders. There is a gas barbecue grill outside. The Gulf is a half block away, the L&N Depot building (housing the Alice Moseley Folk Art & Antique Museum, as well as a Mardi Gras Museum) is directly across the park from the house. Next to the Depot is the Duck Pond, and you are walking distance from Olde Town. It is a truly lovely neighborhood, and the Miss Alice's Blue House Studio is a less expensive way to enjoy Bay St. Louis.

Please note that this is a non-smoking property. This means smoking is not allowed inside the Studio, nor is it allowed on the property. No exceptions!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Had a wonderful relaxing time. We had met Mrs. Moseley and it made our stay so much more exciting, knowing that we were staying at the "Blue House". Plan on coming again!

Our stay at The Moseley House was Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My hubby and I celebrated our 32nd wedding anniversary here and had a wonderful time! We was so close to the beach and Old Town-which we call Mayberry Town(everybody is so humble and friendly). We enjoyed sitting on front porch listening to the beautiful wind chimes across from park. We walked to Louie and the Redheaded Lady to have dinner. Wonderful place to go! Mr Mosely was easy to work with and we truly enjoyed reading his mother,Mrs Alice Moselys books about her artwork and her life. Def recommend this place! Perfect location!!!

A wonderful stay in Old Town Bay St. Louis

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the studio which actually is more of a 1 bedroom. There is a living room with a door and a sofa bed as well as the bedroom. It looked just like the pictures.

It was comfortable and in a quiet area while still being walking distance from all of the restaurants and shops in old town. It was also a block and a half from the beach.

The studio was ready when we arrived, and hour before the appointed time and the caretaker was on the property every day. He maintains the property and makes sure there are plenty of tour brochures and restaurant guides in the room.

There were so many wonderful places to eat and shop but our favorite meal was at the Starfish Cafe. The coffee at the Mockingbird Cafe was a daily treat and you can get amazing, artisan bread at Serious Bread.

I definitely would recommend this place and hope to be able to return again in the future.

Impressive little room

  • 5 of 5

On a basis of what you pay for is what you get this place far exceeded expectations. It has great location and is on a nice little street. We spent very little time in the room but there is adequate parking and enough area for two people to stay.

Quaint, but Extremely Uncomfortable

  • 1 of 5

It's a lovely studio, complete with Alice Moseley's amazing artwork. We've stayed in the cottage before; this was our first time in the studio. While the cottage is comfortable and quaint, the studio is just quaint. The bed is incredibly uncomfortable (perhaps the worst I've slept on), as is the climate control, other furniture, shower, etc. It's missing the normal things you get with a VRBO property like a coffee pot, corkscrew (we had to google how to open a wine bottle without a corkscrew), etc. It's just not a good experience property. It needs either massive improvement or massive drop in price. As is, it's a $50/night experience.

Owner's Response: Every penny earned at this property goes to supporting tourism and charities in Bay St. Louis. I do not accept one penny for managing the property. Several places in my information about the property emphasize that I would like people with complaints to please contact me rather than just leaving negative feedback without giving me a chance to make corrections. I and the property maintenance man spoke to these people during their stay and I advised them to let me know if they have any problems. Nothing was said by them. Today when I went to the property, the nonexistent coffeepot was sitting next to the microwave oven as usual and the corkscrew was in the silverware drawer. As described in the description of the property the bed is a full size bed with a pillow top mattress. I have never gotten another complaint about the bed. If something is missing or in need of attention at one of my properties I certainly appreciate being notified of that fact, but this is not a helpful way to help me make your stay a positive one.

Quaint property

  • 5 of 5

Property was clean, well maintained, and much cuter in person than in the photos in my opinion. Furnished with antiques and art with a lot of character. Great location walking distance to beach and old town. Fenced in yard was perfect for our little dogs. Property had a coffee maker even though the listing didn't say it specifically, which was nice. Overall very happy with our stay and would definitely stay again! Only wish would be for a queen size bed instead of a full in the bedroom.
