About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-7)

This house is a 'Peace' of Paradise! It is quiet, on the waterfront, and close to all the action! Great views and great amenities. We strive to provide our guests with all the comforts of home, plus!

Our house is richly decorated with 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, a living room, dining area, and kitchen with a bar. It is an open floor plan with all tile floors. The Master has a brand new Sterns and Foster king size bed with attached bath. The second bedroom has a queen bed and the third has a twin and a full bed. All beds have luxury sheets and bedding. There are flat screen televisions in the living room (47'), master (42') and second bedroom (40'). There is a 20' flat screen T.V. in the 3rd bedroom. There is a full bath in the hallway. The living room has all brand new leather furniture with reclining features. The dining room and bar have all oak furniture. The kitchen is fully stocked with utensils and cooking equipment. There is a Keurig Coffee maker with starter pods. Cable and high speed wireless or corded internet are provided.

There are water views from the brightly lit living, dining areas and two bedrooms. The den/living room connects to the covered porch flanking the front and side of the house. There is a gate blocking the stairs for children or pets. We have a doggie door leading onto the deck. Well behaved pets are welcome!

There is a large grass front yard that is child and pet friendly. There are balls and other equipment provided for your family's enjoyment. For quiet or rainy days we have a cabinet full of family friendly board games.

There are gorgeous views from the covered porches- one of a bend in the Biloxi River and another of our wooded canal. The porches are raised on pilings approximately 14 feet off the ground. There is covered parking and a deck elevator installed.

Within ten minutes you can be at the beach or the casinos. There is live music in the area every evening. We provide a list of all our favorite places to eat and things to do. We also provide directions so you can buy fresh seafood and produce to cook at home. This area has some of the best seafood in the world!

Gulfport-Biloxi has some of the best fishing found anywhere! In the 'Back Bay' of Biloxi you can catch Speckled Trout and Redfish (to have any luck you'll have to fish from a boat). From our pier you can use the poles and lures provided. In the spring you can catch Bream on most every cast. As the weather gets warmer you can catch a few Blue Gill every now and then. With the right bait, and some luck, you can catch an occasional Bass.

Our area is known as 'Retreat Village'. We think of it as our own 'Peace' of Paradise.


The coast is a great place to live and play; but, as is true in any area next to the water, you have be prepared for tropical storms and hurricanes. During the storms and periods of extreme weather or even during extended periods of rain the river will rise onto the property, which is why the house is raised. The good news is that the weather folks are good at predicting and tracking these storms. The Harrison County Civil Defense puts out warning messages on the TV and on the radio. This shouldn't be a problem for you because you'll want to 'hit the road' as soon you hear of severe weather that causes the Biloxi River to flood. Our policy - if you need to evacuate, or if you're in doubt, just go and we'll work out something reasonable. If it is recommended that you evacuate due to rising water and you do not, we are not responsible for any losses that might be incurred.

Our policy is ABSOLUTELY NO SMOKING IN THE HOUSE. There are plenty of outdoor areas where you can smoke. Smokers are welcome but we require that you not smoke indoors or the upstairs porches (smoke can blow inside). If you smoke indoors you forfeit your deposit. No butts in the yard either please.

Great neighborhood and friendly people.

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

It's a perfect location... near enough to Gulfport, Biloxi, and Ocean Springs, to enjoy the offerings of each town.

The neighborhood was quiet and secluded. The neighbors were friendly. The house was exceptional. And it was well equipped for any and all needs. I highly recommend booking this home for any multiple day stay in the Gulfport/Biloxi area.

My only complaint, and the complaint of a few neighbors, is that the underhouse driveway lights are constantly on at night. There is no way to turn them off, short of throwing the breaker, and it detracts from the tranquillity of a dark night sky.

We were very happy with this house. The deck is great with lots of room. Beds and living furniture is comfortable. There are plenty of towels for showers and the beach. You can be at the beach and restaurants in Gulfport and Biloxi in 20 minutes. Thank you!

Wish we could keep this one a secret

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

This is a very good value for the money. A lovely home away from home. Very modern and clean.

It was nice sitting on the dock fishing. They do provide poles but make sure you bring your tackle and bait. The cupboards are all stocked with everything you need to cook, although we used the barbecue with the charcoal they provided.

It was so comfortable there that we never had to leave except for a trip to the store.

The canoes were fun taking off from the back dock.

I highly recommend this place, although I wish I could just keep it a secret to use at will. My family loved it here.

We will definitely be back when there are openings.

MORE than expected!

  • 4 of 5
Verified Stay

My family and I stayed at Mrs. Suzanne's home the weekend of Good Friday and Easter! It was very lovely and much more than we expected. Everything we needed, minus food, was provided. It was spacious and had enough room for my teenage sons and little one to roam around freely. We were able to fish, my husband and sons went kayaking for the first time, and I sat outside most morning to just spend some quality time praying. The only thing that could have been looked at was the dog hair. I am a "clean freak" and I took the moment to dust/sweep the floors. Under the beds and in the corner of the home there was much dog hair. Not a big deal, but did cause my son's allergy to flair off worst than usual. I highly recommend "Paradise Found on the Biloxi" for all who are just trying to get away from the world for just a moment. It was so wonderful, we were ready to book again but the weekend we wanted was already taken. Thanks Mrs. Suzanne and Dane for making our stay a memorable one!!

Great Stay on the Biloxi River

  • 5 of 5

We really liked this place. We were here for 6 weeks and saw everything the area has to offer, which is a lot. The house was laid out great with plenty of room when family came down one weekend. We were a little taken aback when we saw there were close neighbors, but they were great. Helped us out on a couple of occasions. The elevator made it nice for moving luggage into home, plus our grandson loved riding in it. Great home and would definitely stay agin if near Gulfport. Property manager was in touch a couple of times to make sure all was OK.
