About John Carriere

We purchased the home after Katrina as a weekend retreat. The house was heavily damaged and needed extensive renovation and lots of TLC. While renovating we decided to make the home functional for extended family and guests. The back porch is my favorite spot to enjoy morning coffee and listen to birds. By the afternoon this area is often the busiest room in the house.

John Carriere purchased this bungalow in 2009

Bay St. Louis is a jewel on the MS Gulf Coast. It has some of best beaches but is also in close proximity to good restaurants and shopping. Old Town Bay St. Louis has because a quaint destination in its own right with shops, dining, and a new marina under construction.

What makes this bungalow unique

Privacy, beach atmosphere, screened Porch, and lush tropical surroundings. House comforts like big kitchen, 2 full baths, and washer & dryer. Lots of indoor and outdoor space for luggage and beach toys.

Very old priced too high limited parking

  • 3 of 5

CONS: Fan in down stairs bedroom wobbled very bad could not use, room very hot for sleeping. Very limited parking. Food in cabinets, freezer, refrigerator leaving minimal space for our grocery items. Only one small tv. Unfortunately the weekend we were there rained all the time (not owner faults)

PROS: easily accommodated 6 adults. Lots of kitchen stuff but only one frying pan. Grill worked very well. Not too far from beach. Large dining living and lay area. Plus was washer dryer. Two bathrooms.

Overall all properties priced too high in area

Would not stay at site again

Owner's Response: I am sorry to hear the previous guest did not enjoy every part of their stay. As represented in past reviews, we strive very hard to make sure the accommodations are excellent. We will address the previous reviewers concerns (see below), especially the ceiling fan in the bedroom. The fan was working fine that last time we stayed at the house. Central AC is available in every room. As a follow up to the reviewers comments: - There is parking for 3 cars in the driveway - Only condiments and a water pitcher are left in the refrigerator. No food is ever left in either the fridge or freezer. - Only shelf stable items are left in the cupboard. As a curtesy for future guests we often have a few canned goods, sugar, cooking oil, etc. - There is only one 36" TV in the house.

We had a nice girls trip!

The back porch was our favorite! This little house is very comfy and makes you feel as if you are staying at your granny's house.

Property comes with all amenities needed. Seems the owners try to think of everything a guest may need during a stay. Yard and house well taken care of and comfortable.

Charming little get away home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this property very much! Very charming little home, with all the amenities, and a great screened porch for enjoying your morning tea. Close to the beach and shops downtown. Owners were very easy to book with and contacted us during our stay to ensure we had everything we needed.
