Photos and Description of the Pass Christian vacation house rental

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath Beachfront Creole Cottage with Pool

Oyster Reef, our beach retreat can be yours. Located just 45 minutes from New Orleans, it is a world apart. Custom built 3 years ago our home is set in a stand of majestic live oak trees, which makes it a birders paradise for watching resident and migrant birds. The home is beachfront with a very wide, very deep, very private screened front porch spanning the front of the home. Follow the oyster and shrimp boats fishing on the Mississipppi Sound of the Gulf of Mexico.

Our private pool is large and features a large deck across the rear of the house.

Non-smoking property - minimum one month rental.

The interior of the home has 12 foot ceilings, beautiful crown molding, ceiling fans and wide pine floors throughout.

The large living room is highlighted by French doors opening onto the front porch, and a wood burning fireplace. The dining room seats up to eight and includes a floor-to-ceiling closet with wine cooler. The kitchen features a double wall oven, gas range top, granite counters, lighted wall pantry and lots of cabinets and shelf space. Laundry room with washer & dryer is in the living area.

The master bedroom, with queen size bed, faces the beach and opens onto the screened porch through French doors. The guest room, with twin beds, overlooks the pool. Each bedroom has its own full bath.

In this quaint little town, you can enjoy golfing, tennis, fishing, boating, walking and hiking, beachcombing, sunbathing and a beautiful harbor filled with historic fishing boats and modern recreational craft. Downtown Pass Christian features wonderful restaurants, pubs and gift and specialty shops.

Golfers really appreciate the two golf courses located in Pass Christian, Timber Ridge and The Oaks, plus multiple others on the coast. These are popular year around with our mild weather.

Boaters/Fishermen - there are 5 boat launches within a mile of Oyster Reef, plus multiple public piers, and of course, salt water wade fishing right out our front door.

With New Orleans & the French Quarter only 1 hour away and Casino Row only 20 minutes away in Biloxi, it's hard to remember that Relaxation is the main 'must do' at the beach here in Pass Christian. Walking is a popular activity here, as well as Sunset watching. Golf is a major attraction on the Gulf Coast, especially in winter, with 2 courses in Pass Christian, Timber Ridge and The Oaks, plus Grand Bear and many others within an easy drive.

Build your appetite for local shrimp, oysters or fish bought from the fishermen on their boats, whether cooked in your modern kitchen or at any of several local restaurants.

26 miles of open beaches give a beautiful entrance to several world class art Museums - Ohr O'keefe Museum, designed by Geary to showcase potter George Ohr in Biloxi and the Walter Anderson Museum in Ocean Springs.

Plan to visit lots of local restaurants as well as our Saturday Market in the Park for fresh produce and art gifts to take home.

So, if you want to spend time at the BlackJack tables or top name concert at a casino or just entertain your grandchildren in the pool or at the beach with sandcastle building, Pass Christian is the place and Oyster Reef is the beach house for you.

The high ceilings and tall doors and windows allow Gulf of Mexico breezes to cool the house with our mild climate. However, if the weather isn't perfect, we have central heat and air conditioning for year around comfort. The view is especially nice, since our home is raised a full story off the ground. It is all on one floor, once you're up there.
