About Wendy Stackel

Forty years ago I drove through the Pass and was smitten by the beauty and charm of the area. Little did I know that I would meet a nice man from Pass Christian following Hurricane Katrina while on a mission trip with my church to help in the recovery and fall in love and have the opportunity to own a home with him here. John Hayden, Jr. grew up in this house that his dad built with his own labor, buying lumber each payday and building a bit during the week after work.. Though we live in Texas, John and I have the privilege of enjoying this house and time with his siblings who live in the Pass and come over as often as we can. We hope you enjoy your time here as much as we do!

Wendy Stackel purchased this cottage in 2014

Great Stay at Hayden Cottage!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hayden Cottage. Wendy has furnished the cottage with all of the basic needs like paper products, soaps, etc. We stayed a whole month and there was more than enough to carry us through. The towels and bedding were very nice. It is an old home with lots of charm. We stayed in February and used both the heat and air conditioning and they worked well. All and all, it was a very comfortable home and very clean. The screen porch was perfect. Our kitty enjoyed lazing in the sun on the porch and so did I.

The cottage is in a great location, close to golf, shopping, the beach and casinos.

We did have an issue with the WiFi not working correctly but Wendy got on the problem and had us up and running within a few days. We really appreciated her quick response to any questions we had. She always seemed to be available.

Our only suggestion would be to have a better, more varied choice of TV channels. However, the TV's worked great and the screen size was good. Maybe a DVD player would be helpful and then you could rent a movie now and then or if Netflix was included, you could click into your personal account and download movies that way. I'm just making suggestions because I don't know what is available in the area.

We did enjoy the cottage and our stay. We have already booked for next February so that should tell you something.

Thank you, Wendy! We are looking forward to our next visit.

This is the perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

A block for the beach, the cottage is close to the best restaurants on the gulf coast, as well as outlet shopping. The kitchen is perfectly appointed and the screen porch is an ideal place to read a book or just relax.

Wonderful place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

Mrs. Wendy and Arthur were great! Mrs. Wendy is so kind and very responsive to emails. The house was so clean and neat. We had everything we needed for our stay for Cruising the Coast. The kitchen is well stocked. We even used her crock pot one day to have dinner ready when we came home from seeing all the cars. We loved the front porch and drank coffee there every morning. We were disappointed when we had to leave early due to hurricane Nate. We definitely will stay here again. Thank you Mrs. Wendy for sharing your home!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Needed time away from the big city and Hayden Cottage in The Pass was just the prescription we needed. Kitchen was well stocked for cooking; walking distance to the beach; easy walk to parks and restaurants; front porch perfect for relaxing in the evening. We will be back many more times!

Family vacation to the Gulf with a beautiful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do this house justice! Clean, clean, clean! The house is simply beautiful and welcoming. The porch was a big hit with my family with morning coffee and late evenings to relax. Local town people and neighbors were friendly and helpful. Wendy was easy to work with and responded quickly when I had a question. She even helped me find someone to take a look at my vehicle. Unfortunately, our engine light came on and we needed it checked out. Kenney Torgeson at Torgeson auto assisted us and was friendly and professional. Check-in and check-out were simple and hassle free. Beach was only 1 1/2 blocks from the house. We visit the local harbor and they took the time to let my children see the shrimp, crabs, and large red fish! We also visit New Orleans and it was only a 1 hour and 10-minute trip. Enjoyed our stay very much! Thank you!
