Why Madeline Tonti chose Mississippi

This was built in honor of my childhood and was pre katrina named 'Once upon a time'. This was the story I told my grandchildren of my childhood on the Gulf Coast. It was totally destroyed in 2005 and rebuilt in 2007 with the same floor plan, colors, etc. It served as my weekend retreat from work until I retired and is still my favorite place to be.

What makes this cottage unique

Home is extreme comfortable and safe for children with the totally fenced yard and under house play area and parking on rainy days.

My husband and I spent a delightful month exploring the Gulf Coast. It was very different from the Midwest. We especially like the view of the water and the sunsets. Loved the home. It was very comfortable and relaxing and had everything we needed. New Orleans was about a one hour drive. Mobile was about an hour and a half. Lots of restaurants in the area. The Blind Tiger was our go to place. We would come back again.

Wonderful home where memories are made!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great home to make memorable memories for the whole family. There is the view of the bay, the fishing and crabbing pier, the wonderful sunsets, bikes available, board games for all ages, the roomy yard for the little ones to play in, and the front and back screened porches to sit on and enjoy the view. The home is very well equipped with everything we needed and the owners were delightful to meet and very accommodating. We really enjoyed our month there and hope to return again.

We loved the location because we had a boat launch and pier. Perfect for our boat and jet ski. We had wonderful access to the Jourdan River which was great because we enjoyed skiing and boating. Fenced in yard great for our small dog and visiting grandsons. The home was stocked well and the furnishing were nice. Front porch was a delight to spend mornings and evenings watching the sunset. Would recommend to all and hope to rent again.

We enjoyed February and March 2014 in this family friendly cottage. The view and surroundings are lovely. The cottage was extraordinary well equipped as well as extremely comfortable. The owner was accessible and helpful on the occasions we talked. This is a great area to spend a couple of winter months. While there we took in some horse jumping as well as a rodeo in addition to sampling great restaurants and going to Mardi Gras parades.

The property was exactly as represented and then some.
