Why Charles Ward chose Bay St Louis
This home is a multi-generational property originally purchased by the current owners' grandparents, Thelma and Harry Beyer. This property has been a gathering place with many fond memories ever since. Passed from generation to generation, Charles and Harry Ward owned the home prior to Katrina. Harry lovingly renovated this early 1900's home where he lived with his wife Jamie and young daughter Renee. As was the case for many houses so close to the Gulf of Mexico, Katrina left only the steps to this home and a few small treasures special to this family to this day. Harry and his family relocated to Nevada after the storm and Charles and their sister Ruth Petras decided to rebuild. With so many memories growing up from children to young adults they wanted to build the home to make those memories possible for generations to come. The home was rebuilt late in 2011 and has been a place where many shrimp have been fried, storms enjoyed with our tin roof and sunsets appreciated from our porches. Today it is referred to as the Petras-Ward House.

BSL Girlfriend Getaway
Charming house in great location. Spacious and comfortable. I would stay at this property again in a heartbeat.
The home was absolutely lovely! My family and I just LOVE Bay St. Louis, and this fabulous home made our stay perfect. My husband and I have 4 children. This home was spacious and perfect for our large family. Owners were fabulous, responding quickly to questions. We hope to be back soon!
Beautiful, spacious house close to beach
Our family of 5 found this home to be perfect for our needs. Kids aged 20, 18 & 15 each had their own rooms. Master suite was roomy and private. The kitchen and living area provided a great place to gather. We found an abundance of cooking supplies to meet all our needs. The outdoor living space is lovely, and the home has every beach toy imaginable along with wagons to transport, chairs, umbrellas and towels. No need to bring any of that from home—they have it all. It’s a short walk to the beach, and easy to go back and forth from beach to house. We have returned to BSL/Waveland 6 summers in a row. We fell in love with the area our first trip, mainly because of the hospitality of the people in the community, the relaxed pace and plenty of room on the beach (as in some times we were the only ones in sight so it’s like having a private beach!) I’m sure we will be back next summer, and we will definitely book to stay here again. You won’t be disappointed in this home. We highly recommend.
Great Quiet Getaway
Place was very nice! Very convenient to beach and restaurants and entertainment! Owner was very nice and easy to communicate with. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we will definitely be back!!
This home is beautiful! Had everything our big family needed and then some. Charles went out of his way to insure we had all we needed. Thank you Charles for a sharing your wonderful beach house! We have already made reservations for next year.
Relaxing and comfy family beach vacation!
The house was beautiful and had plenty of space. The comfy couch and chairs in the family room got lots of use. The crew enjoyed playing the many board games available. The large outdoor area under the house was a plus. It was a short walk to the beach and quaint downtown art and restaurant area. We enjoyed walking and shopping on Main St. We recommend checking out Buccaneer State Park. BSL is definitely becoming a family favorite!
