About Kay Hightower

We purchased this darling cottage when our first child enrolled at Ole Miss. At that time we totally updated it! It has been occupied by the kids for the last 12 years. 3 under grad degrees and a law school degree. We are finally done and have decided to give it a complete face lift and share our little slice of heaven on VRBO. Ron and Becky both went to Ole Miss, met and fell in love there, married and then returned to Law School there. Oxford holds a special place in our hearts! We are from Ocean Springs and now that the kids are all gone and we have 2 grandchildren we are not able to get back up as often as we used to. So, we hope you enjoy our home away from home as much as we have!

Unfortunately, Becky passed away in October, 2015.

Kay Hightower purchased this cottage in 2001

Good summer rate and excellent location

  • 5 of 5

The house was well decorated and very nice, excellent screened porch. Awesome location with easy walk to the square. All basics are in place and shipping is near. Cheaper than two hotel rooms if traveling with a family. Good summer/off season rates. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.
