About Karen Hall

In 1965, our father transferred to Keesler Air Force Base from Amarillo, Texas where I was born and raised. I was in High School, my brother in college. Our parents had our home, Vaneaton Place built in 1965. It was one of the first built in the whole subdivision. The coast looked a lot different back then. It was considered the hot spot for vacation and weekend get away. Lots of nightclubs, beach, amusement park, miniature golf.... underground slot machines and gambling. My parents had fallen in love with the Mississippi Coast while on a vacation trip a few years earlier. Hurricane Betsy hit the first month we moved to the coast! What a greeting and what a mess along the beach. Nothing compared to 1969, Hurricane Camille. That really wiped out the coastline. It gave us lots of stories to tell and lots of rebuilding to do. Our home, Vaneaton Place, had no damage. Just trees uprooted. We stayed in the house during the storm. The glass sliding door buckled back and forth from the pressure of the storm. It passed during the night hours and the darkness during the eye of the storm was so eerie that I'll never forget it. Many lots along the scenic beach drive stayed empty for years and years.

Life went on. The coast built back. We grew up, had families and moved away but Biloxi, Mississippi remained home for our parents. Hurricane Katrina came along in 2005 and really devastated our beautiful coast all the way from Alabama to Louisiana. Our home actually had about 1 foot of water come in so we lost almost everything. Our Mom never was able to move back in but she did pick out all the colors that you see painted throughout the home. Some of the furnishings are the original. They are all special memories for us. Our Mom loved her home and yard. It is a very special place to us and to our children who have always had it in their lives. A place full of wonderful memories.

Karen Hall purchased this house in 1965

Why Karen Hall chose Mississippi

We wanted to keep the house in our family because it is such a part of us. A place we can go to and visit and a place that we can open up and share to travelers who understand how much it mean to us. A place we still call home.

What makes this house unique

We are in a quiet area but just 10 min drive to the beach. There are so many places to shop and eat within minutes of the house including a large movie theatre. There are 7 casinos within a 10 to 15 min drive. Of course fishing and golfing all over the place... Who could ask for a more relaxing place to go.

Great getaway!

  • 4 of 5

This house was just as it looked in the pictures, cozy and comfortable. It worked well for our family of 4. Close enough to everything also. We had minor issues which we discussed with the owner Karen and she was very apologetic. We would rent again on our next trip to Biloxi.

Looking forward to our next stay!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this lovely home for a family vacation. I had 5 young adults aged 15, 19-20. The home was very thing we expected and more. It was conveniently located close to everything we wanted to do during our stay and gave me peace of mind when my young people needed space to venture out on their own. It was very relaxing and accommodating. Thanks for making our vacation great!!!

The home was perfect for our stay. We were in Biloxi for the AKC dog shows so this per friendly home was a nice alternative to a hotel. The premises were clean and comfortable. The owner was helpful and very pleasant. A great experience.

Great home away!!!

  • 4 of 5

This was truly a home away from home. The house was clean and thoroughly stocked for your needs. We enjoyed everything except the rain. We did manage to get one day of fishing and of course we visited the casino s which were not far away. We would definitely visit again.
