This lovely 2-story cottage has 3 BR/2 BA in about 1500 sq. ft. It was custom built in 2010 and has many upgraded features - stainless steel appliances, travertine in both bathrooms, beautiful concrete countertops and floors, etc.
The downstairs of the cottage features an open floor plan where the living room with a 2-story ceiling height flows into the kitchen and dining area. There is a 4 person Dining Room table as well as 2 stools at the bar height counter by the kitchen. In the living Room, there is a 40” flat screen TV with DirecTV programming. There is also a large sofa & 1 wing chair recliner and an additional wing chair. In the winter months, enjoy the fireplace with gas logs with auto starter wall switch.
Also located downstairs is the Master Bedroom and compartmented Master Bath. A single vanity is in with the toilet and is separated by a pocket door from the other area of the Master Bath which contains another single vanity in with the Jacuzzi tub and shower combo. In the Master Bedroom, there is a Queen sized bed and a large dresser as well as an armoire with a 26” TV & DVD player combo. There is a tray ceiling with ceiling fan and a walk-in closet. A French door leads out back to the patio area and in-ground pool which features a multi-colored light system making it perfect for evening swims. The entire back yard is fenced.
Upstairs are 2 bedrooms – one with a full-size bed and one with a twin bed. Both are connected to the full bath upstairs which features a vanity with single sink, walk-in shower with travertine & hand held shower head, as well as travertine floors.
We live nearby in Long Beach and are available to help out with any questions or info you have about the area while here. We sometime stay at or have family get-togethers at the property ourselves when it's not being rented out.
Our 2 golden retrievers love to swim in the pool and lie on the cool concrete floors. We definitely wanted to make our rental pet-friendly because we know how much pets are a part of families now, but also how hard it is to find nice rentals that will accept pets, especially big dogs like labs and goldens.
Jack W. Hess purchased this cottage in 2010
After looking for property in other beach areas, we visited here about one year post-Katrina & appreciated the small town atmosphere of the area and could see the potential for the MS coast to be rebuilt better than ever. We wanted to help be a part of that rebuilding.
We love the privacy of being removed from other houses, but still close enough to neighbors to not feel isolated. We also love that the property is surrounded on several sides by live oak trees giving the property a beautiful backdrop. The great location (close to the beach, grocery shopping, restaurants, hospital, etc) made it ideal for us. Also, adding the pool recently has made the cottage even more of a place to relax and enjoy the beach-area lifestyle.
Love having a pool, and it lights up. The rooms are super. There are lots of kid's channels on the TV that you can save and watch later. My family and I loved it.
Two couples stayed in the cottage for a week on the Coast. It was just what we wanted. The house is well appointed and equipped. The location is great. Quiet yet close to the coast. We enjoyed chatting with Jack and would recommend for a visit to the Mississippi Gulf Coast.
My husband and I vacationed here in mid-September and loved every minute. The cottage was perfect for the two of us, but can easily accommodate two to three more people. The beach is truly just a short drive or walk from the cottage and the neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful. In addition to spending time at the beach and enjoying the pool, we browsed/shopped in Pass Christian, Bay St. Louis, and Ocean Springs; did the Ship Island Excursion, and went to Oak Alley Plantation. Be sure to pack a cooler so you can take fresh shrimp back home!
We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage! It had all the amenities of home. The pool was a treat that we don't have at our home. The cottage was very clean and decorated beautifully. The owners were very friendly and accommodating to us and our two little fur babies. We look forward to visiting again soon!
We had a great time in Long Beach. The house is beautiful. My kids loved the pool. We stayed a week and I think the price is quite a value. There is a grocery store nearby, many great restaurants and shopping. The beach is very pretty but really shallow. If you have little kids they can run around no problem (and no sharks - ha ha). We went off shore fishing with a charter, a day trip to New Orleans, the outlet mall, a car museum in Gulfport, a gator ranch in Moss Point and mini golf in Biloxi. There is an abundance of things to do. I looked on Trip Advisor and we tried many of the restaurants in Long Beach, Gulfport and Biloxi. They were all really good - we ate well! Overall a great value, very clean house and close to many activities and restaurants. We have two teenage boys and they loved this family vacation.
Our stay at this coastal cottage was wonderful. The cottage is even more beautiful and roomy than the pictures on the internet. The cottage was very clean and had all the amenities anyone would need. The neighborhood is quiet with no neighbors very close. The private pool is beautiful and very convenient. The cottage is in a convenient location to many things. The area is close to grocery stores, restaurants, and the beach. The outlet mall in Gulfport is not very far for more shopping. My family really enjoyed our vacation on the Mississippi Gulf Coast and we hope to revisit with another stay at the cottage. We met the owners in person; they were very hospitable and helpful. They are the kind of people that make you feel at home. Thank you to the Elizabeth and Jack for sharing their cottage with us; and thank you for a wonderful vacation.
The coastal cottage is a great place for any type of gulf coast getaway you are looking for. The home was plenty spacious, clean and comfortable for our family of 5 (plus mini golden doodle). The spacious backyard is a real luxury compared to most vacation homes we have stayed in. The pool gets sun most of the day but is shaded by the oak trees late in the afternoon, which provides a nice break from the heat late in the day. Beach is an easy stroll and provides long walking path all the way to town. Also, jet ski rentals are just a short ride down the beach. Long Beach is a quaint quiet town with a quite a few really good places to eat. Darwell's was our favorite, don't miss his shrimp creole. The Hess family were extremely accomodating to us and helped make a great vacation for our family. Thanks for providing such a nice place to visit!
Located in a nice area of Long Beach just a couple of minutes walk to the beach, the cottage is within a few miles of several new restaurants with Gulf views in Long Beach, as well as a marina and public pier. There are also many more restaurants, marinas and attractions within a 30 minute drive in either direction. With a WalMart a couple of miles to the west and grocery stores and pharmacies located only a couple of miles to the east, you can easily make a quick trip to pick up supplies. The closet casino in Gulfport is only about 5 and a half miles away, and there are 10 other casinos within a 20 to 30 minute drive.
Hwy 90 runs directly along the beach for 40 miles from Bay St. Louis to the west all the way over to Ocean Springs to the east. This drive is very unique because of its mostly unobstructed view of the Gulf for the entire route plus its abundance of live oak trees all along the route. This drive also features the sweeping views from bridge connecting Bay St. Louis to Pass Christian, as well as the bridge between Biloxi and Ocean Springs. Also, the route takes through 6 distinct towns, all with their unique charm.
If you want to go a little further out, you can be in the French Quarter or the Garden District in New Orleans in less than an hour and a half. Just west of New Orleans and also within a 2 hour drive is the Great River Road in Louisiana populated with several magnificent antebellum plantation houses. This whole area offers a variety of activities to take part in or just stay in the peaceful surroundings of the cottage and relax.
