About Harvey Brooks
My wife and I met in Thailand. I worked for Esso Exploration and she worked for The Standard Chartered Bank. My office was in the bank building. We married in 1982 and have one son. We reside in Prairieville, LA where we have lived for 17 years. We have lived in several countries and several states before settling down. We have lived in this property briefly in 1988. We had a tenant who moved out this year after renting for 27 years! That is when I decided to quit my corporate job and completely restore the home.
Harvey Brooks purchased this House in 1978
Why Harvey Brooks chose Biloxi
This home has location, location, location! I grew up in south MS and have traveled to Biloxi as a child. This is the first home I purchased in 1978. A year later I landed a job overseas working for Esso Exploration Asia. I have had numerous offers to sell at a substantial profit but I have always wanted to be able to visit back to Biloxi and this home. This house has survived all the major Huricanes since its construction in 1924, including Camille and Katrina even thoug it is less than a block off the beach! Katrina totally destroyed almost every building between the house and the beach while receiving only some roof damage and one of the columns being blown away. We never did find the column and I replaced it to match the original column to match the other 3 this year. We restored the house back to original as close as possible. Nearly all the floors are the original as well as the ceiling, light fixtures, fireplace, attic fan and floor furnace. We have modern heating and air as well. The home frame is primarily built from cypress and native heart pine. The construction and frame is built to last. This is a very quite neighborhood on a culdesac. There is of street parking for up to 5 autos. There is also an space to party up to a 30 foot motorhome or RV. Ware, sewer and electric are available for the RV but it would be an additional charge and would be included only when renting the home. We have prepared the home with more than basics for your stay. Basic cooking ingredients, coffee, soft drinks, bottled water. You can basically pick up your favorite meat and vegetables and cook without having to make a large shopping trip. There is a neighborhood grocery store a few blocks away. We have also placed two bicycles for your use on the the bike lanes in Biloxi that start at the this location. There is a fenced in back yard for your fury friend.

Lovely home on a quiet cul de sac just a block from the beach. Neat, clean with all the amenities. Mr. Harvey was so helpful and pleasant. We had a Wonderful experience.
Charlotte and her family enjoyed their stay which is what we really hope to have with every guest. We sincerely hope that they come back and stay with us again.
Southern hospitality at its finest!!!
Mr. Brooks was an amazing host. He thought of everything that we may need to use while we stayed at the cottage. It was extremely cozy and more than enough room for our family of 4. This is a beautiful cottage and was a highlight of our trip. We would highly recommend. Mr. Brooks was very responsive to any questions we had. We will absolutely be back and have recommended to family and friends.
Beautiful older home in a quiet neighborhood. But close to everything.
We so enjoyed our stay in this Cozy Cottage! The house had everything from a coffee maker to a chef-worthy stove to resort-quality towels. Having access to a washer and dryer was a life saver after long days on the beach. We went grocery shopping and cooked most of our meals since we enjoy cooking, but the location of the house is close to Beach Blvd and all of the restaurants. You can see the Beau Rivage from the front porch, and there was a huge fireworks show from MGM Stadium on our last night there. To be honest, we stayed a week in this house and didn’t want to leave. My mother-in-law even remarked that she wanted to put this cute little cottage in her pocket and take it home with her. We enjoyed our stay and hope it’s available for our next trip to the Coast.
I am pleased that Terry and his family enjoour home and hope they come back soon. I really appreciate the fact that they left the house in excellent condition.
