Waveland House Rental Photos and Description

Located on the gulf coast of Mississippi, Waveland beach is a small, quiet town, that was devastated by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. The regrowth of the town shows in its beautiful white sand beaches, the paved trail that lines the beach, and the beautiful homes newly built along the beach. Old Town Bay St. Louis, just two miles down the beach, was named one of the "coolest small towns in America" by Budget Travel Magazine and Coastal Living Magazine called it one of the top ten small beach towns in the country. There is plenty to do for all ages within five miles of our property including the wave pool and nature trails at Buccaneer State Park, the Hollywood Casino, new marina just built for boaters, shopping, and both upscale and casual restaurants. You can also just relax on the white sandy beaches only a minute walk from the house. Although it is a small town, there are grocery stores located only two miles away for anything you may need.

This beach house, with 5000 square feet under roof is perfect for 3-4 couples, girls getaway, or up to three families with children. The three bedrooms each have a double bed and the loft that has three single beds and a double bed. The master bedroom has a jacuzzi tub and shower. This raised property provides great views of the beach from the four decks. The first level accommodates the three bedrooms and the second level's open space floor plan is perfect for larger groups to gather. The fully equipped kitchen is great for making large meals and plenty of room for everyone to dine. The lower level under the house has seating and a bar area to sit and relax and feel the gulf breezes.

Come enjoy all that Waveland has to offer while enjoying the amenities of our great beach house!!!!

About Ed Desobry/Cathy Pickel

My family has been going the the area since 1945 when my great grandmother purchased a vacation home. The house survived many hurricane's but after Katrina we were forced to rebuild. My Dad decided to move closer to the beach. In 2007 we purchased the current location and began building a new vacation home that we could enjoy for years to come. We completed the home in 2009. We decided to allow others to enjoy the home and lease it as a vacation rental.

Ed Desobry/Cathy Pickel purchased this house in 2007

Why Ed Desobry/Cathy Pickel chose Mississippi

After being in Bay Saint Louis in Cedar Point for over 60 years my family decided to move closer to the beach right down the street to Waveland. Having the beach to enjoy the gulf has been a great decision. When everyone gets together everyone enjoys going down to the white sandy beach.

What makes this house unique

The over 5000 square feet under roof house has many indoor and outdoor spaces. With three bedrooms and a large loft this house can accommodate up to 11 people. We spend countless hours on the ground floor enjoying the family time or having our morning breakfast on one the porch over looking the Gulf.

Great experience at this beach house!

  • 4 of 5

The property was clean when we arrived and the house is very well kept. The only downfall was all of the stairs but one can only expect as much with a house that close to the water. It slept my family comfortably and the patio area downstairs was great for entertaining. Would recommend staying here to my friends and family.

Beach view!

  • 5 of 5

House was great and really close to the beach. You can see the beach from the front and back porches. Saw a lot of rabbits in the yard. Kids and us really enjoyed it. There are a lot of stairs so be ready for that. Lol. Lots of great food places to eat nearby also. Definitely recommend this house.

great vacation home for a group

  • 5 of 5

My family of four and parents enjoyed our stay for five days in May. The weather was perfect and the house provided plenty of space for all of us and the two dogs. The hardwood floors, large kitchen, two large tables, and comfortable furniture that allowed all six of us to sit together was wonderful. The many levels provided a lot of exercise even on the warmer days when we stayed indoors and the patios gave options to sit outside and enjoy the scenery. The house provided all the linens, dishes, large television, beach chairs, and bikes. We were even able to use small wagon for little dog. The only suggestion I would have for improvement would be provide mattresses for all beds since my parents took the room with only two box-springs. House has up to four beds in loft all comfortable where my son slept but my daughter and parents took the double beds and my husband and I slept in master bedroom on the queen. There are bathrooms for most levels and two showers provided and large bath in master. It was a very nice house and would love to stay in it again. We spent most of the time talking on large table in kitchen, sitting on furniture in living room and playing games. We took many walks and enjoyed the town and suggested eating places. The owners were easy to contact and house was clean. It was a wonderful time.

Beautiful town in a quiet/unpopulated area

  • 5 of 5

This house is a GEM! Perfect for large groups. This was my third time renting the home. The layout and extra amenities are great. The kitchen is fully equipped, new furniture was just purchased, and they even added new bunk beds upstairs. Every time I visit the owners have updated something on the house to make it even more enjoyable! If you are looking for a quiet place to vacation that is just a short drive from the New Orleans action, this is the place for you!

Great time

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful time on the coast. Three families, one with two small children, fit just fine into this big house. Nice restaurants nearby, when we went out. Most of the time, we stayed in, cooked our own food, did puzzles, read books, watched some movies, take naps, etc. Basically a very relaxing Spring Break, filled with doing nothing. Loved the decks.

As a big guy, I would have preferred the Master Bath didn't have a curtain running through the middle of the corner shower while not keeping the water in and instead had a glass enclosure. But my wife loved the soaking tub and I managed by waiting my turn in hall bathroom shower.

Great Get-a Way!

  • 5 of 5

Property was clean which is important when vacationing. Dogs loved the trip and we had a nice relaxing time. Bit cold when we visited but would have spent some time on the numerous balconies with beach view. Will return when it is warmer. Walked to the beach with the dogs for a stroll. Restaurants nearby to pick up dinner. Had most all of the necessities needed when we arrived. Cathy, the owner was very accommodating. We will definitely return! Traci & Anthony Kestler, New Orleans
