About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

The 'Little House' is only 100 steps from the beautiful white sand beach in Waveland and is located behind the Big House. It is a 900 SF Mediteranean style stucco house featuring a clay tile roof and Mexican tile open deck. As you relax on the deck under the shade of the live oak tree, you have several views of the beach and a 300+ year old cypress tree.

Inside, the very open floor plan has ceramic tile throughout the house and many double windows to add to the open feel.

The spacious bedroom has a king bed and two large closets. The bathroom features an oversized whirlpool tub with ceramic tile enclosure and counter tops. The fully stocked kitchen has plenty of counter space and cabinets. The laundry room is equipped with a full size washer and dryer.

From this location, you can be in the New Orleans French Quarter in less than an hour. On the way to New Orleans, you can stop by the Stennis Space Center Infinity Museum that features science and space exhibits.

Traveling to the west on the beach road, you can visit the Waveland Public Pier for fishing and beautiful views of the water, stop by Buccaneer State Park for a little recreation and continue to the Silver Slipper Casino for a little gaming or eat in their restaurants.

Traveling to the east on the beach road, you will be in Bay St. Louis in about 30 seconds. Bay St. Louis 'Old Town' has restaurants, shopping, antiques, a coffee house, and golf cart rentals. Hollywood Casino that features The Bridges golf course is also located in Bay St. Louis.

This area is still rebuilding from Hurricane Katrina so it is very quiet and relaxing, but there is plenty to do and see!!

About Darlene

We love living on the beach. We built the first 'Little House' in 1986. We were 'weekenders' for many years and dreaded going home on Sundays. When an opportunity came for us to move to Waveland permanently, we did!

Darlene purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Darlene chose Waveland

When Hurricane Katrina destroyed the 'Little House' and the 'Big House' in 2005, we built the smaller house first so that my husband and I could have a place to live while we designed and built the big house. We lived in the little house for 4 years and rented it to a friend for a year.

The house was not being used so we decided to list it with VRBO because we had used VRBO several time ourselves and liked it.

We like the personal contract with potential guests through e-mail and phone calls. The personal touch means a lot when renting from an 'Owner'!

What makes this cottage unique

The house is only 100 steps to the beach and a great walking and bike path. The views and sunsets are great.

The convenient location is only 10 minutes to the restaurants and activities in Waveland and Bay St. Louis.

Great place for peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5

Hubby and I visited at the end of May, 2018. Lovely home in a quiet, small town; has all the amenities, and we had no problems at all. Darlene and her husband were helpful. We had lots of privacy with the beach mostly to ourselves. Located behind their house on Beach Boulevard. Biloxi is only about 30 miles away, Bay St. Louis is right down the road. Lots to see and do, or just enjoy the quiet.

Great Place/Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The Little House was exactly as pictured and advertised but even more impressive when viewed in person. It was bright, clean, well stocked, and well maintained and less than a minute walk to the vast beach and the handy sidewalk/bike lane to town. Darlene (aka George) and Henry were quite friendly and were prompt to address the few minor issues that arose during our stay. We were happy to have found it and would be happy to return.

Very quiet and quaint little place. We enjoyed the beach and the owners were nice. It really seemed as though it was a private beach with only a the owners and us there throughout our stay. Very lovely and hope to stay here again and again!
