Overview

About the property

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

This unique cottage is located directly on the beautiful Ocean Springs Harbor. Its large deck is a wonderful place to relax, and observe the sailboats and wildlife. Pelicans, Great Blue Herons, Night Herons , Egrets and Skimmers all frequent the harbor on a regular basis. You can easily walk to the beach or downtown Ocean Springs, which is filled with art galleries, boutiques and over 100 restaurants. The casinos are just 10 minutes across the Biloxi Bay. Charter boats are available for hire in the Ocean Springs Harbor and Biloxi Harbor. Several golf courses are within a short drive, as well as kayak rentals and tennis courts.

The Master bedroom is located upstairs in a loft, with the bathroom downstairs. The large living room has a queen size sofa sleeper. There is a kitchenette with a dining area. Bicycles are available with the cottage to cruise the shaded streets of this historic town up close. Our beaches are still uncrowded and our waters provide some of the best seafood in the country. Something wonderful is always in season: crabs, crawfish, oysters and always fish of all kinds. In season, you can even walk to the the harbor and buy fresh shrimp right off the boats.

Our Harbor House is filled with local art and whimsy. It was once part of the original Ocean Springs Yacht Club which was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. Thankfully, the Guest House survived and has been completely remodeled with love since the hurricane.

About Beth & Jack Riley

Jack & Beth Riley lived on this property until Hurricane Katrina rudely moved them out in 2005. However, they couldn't give up on this wonderful location and still retain the Harbor House for themselves, family, friends and visitors. The Riley's own a photography studio in downtown Ocean Springs.

Beth & Jack Riley purchased this cottage in 1998

Why Beth & Jack Riley chose Ocean Springs

This was once our home. We moved to Ocean Springs because of its small town charm and historic beauty.

What makes this cottage unique

Watching the boats and birds in the harbor from the deck; walking to the beach, buying fresh shrimp from a boat in the harbor or going to one of the many shops, galleries or restaurants in town.

great location

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was located close to town and the beach. We enjoyed the bikes that were provided. It was a little challenging to prepare meals in the small kitchen. The bedroom is actually a loft.

Had a great time

  • 5 of 5

Great cottage in the harbor! We were there about 3 weeks and had a great time. Walked the harbor several times a day and enjoyed birds and boat owners. Close to all the bars and restaurants you could want. Biloxi close by and our pooch loved it and the beach. Beautiful area and Beth and Jack are great folks. Missed fishing but not that time of year I guess. People are very friendly and fun to talk with. Hope to return.

WOW! Great trip.

  • 5 of 5

Let me start by thanking Beth and Jack for being so kind and flexible. We scheduled a trip for June but needed to change our trip due to our Son - in - Law returning from deployment in Afghanistan. They allowed us to change to the week of Thanksgiving. Much needed break. The Harbor House is great. Location, Location, Location. It is close to the beach and boats for enjoyable walks and bike rides. Downtown is just couple blocks away to enjoy shops and restaurants. House is clean, well furnished and has abundant character. First morning walked down the pier and purchased fresh shrimp off the boat. Scheduled a fishing trip with Strictly Fishing. Steve Perrigin was a great host on his boat. Our bike rides were the best. Bikes are furnished. We peddled around and got to look at all the beautiful homes. We will definitely return to Ocean Springs. We love the town and all it has to offer. No better place to relax.
