About Sheila Riso
The Riso's, are from New Orleans LA. and like many NOLA residents , my grandfather Dominic Riso had an old fashioned camp on the beach in Pass Christain in the 50's ... I grew up hearing stories about the coast and my fathers years at Gulf Coast Military Academy soooo, I guess I have my Grandfathers Gulf Coast fever and have planned for years to move to the Coast. I purchased this property in Bay St Louis August 2013 and completed renovations May 2015 keeping as much of the old as I could while adding the new. This is an owner occupied property with guest suites. I love Bay St Louis and will help you in any way I can.
Sheila Riso purchased this Guest House in 2013
Why Sheila Riso chose Bay Saint Louis
I also bought this property because I love older homes and Pink Heron was built in 1938. It has beautiful patina hard wood floors and the original charm of that period construction. It is a typical American House with 9ft ceilings, crown molding and solid tight construction. It's raised on Piers and did not Flood or sustain any damage during Katrina or any other storm. I have renovated many homes and this is my favorite so far.

The bed was saggy, pillows were almost flat, coffee pot did not work. And A/C unit blew either hot or freezing. This was the worst experience we have had with VRBO.
Well worth it!
Having little idea of what the whole Vacation Rental arena was like, I took a chance that the Pink Heron Cottage was exactly what I was looking for to get my toe in the door here in Bay St.Louis. I was rewarded many times over for that decision.
Proprietor/owner Sheila Riso is a true treasure. The cottage was immaculate, well appointed, and accessible to all things Bay St. Louis (BSL). Highly recommend it!
Total escape from the ordinary!
Loved it, as usual! There's no place else I'd rather stay for a little peace and tranquility and access to so many other activities close by! Cozy and comfortable as always!
Thanks ...we love having u
Perfect Weekend Getaway
Everything was perfect. The beach is a little too far to walk to so I'd suggest driving there. The public beach was nice and not crowded at all. Great restaurants and shops all within walking distance from the beach as well. Big plus that this cottage, town and beach were all very much pet-friendly.
Just like i like it!
Quiet, clean, cozy, peaceful, convenient, quaint small town, great people, reasonably priced! Close to many recreational venues! Will continue to go back as often as possible, especially for the golf courses!
We love it it was vocational, the place was clean & nice real home away from home. Sheila you made are stay awesome may God bless you and your family, will come again.
