About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath - Close to Everything!

Le Shabby Chateau Vacation Home Rental is located in the heart of the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

This beautiful, shabby chic beach home is located in Gulfport, MS just steps from the beach (5 minute walk), 10 minutes from Biloxi, and one hour from New Orleans. It's also just minutes to the Marine Institute, booming Downtown District, Space Center, Historical Attractions, Casinos, and soooooo much more.

Guests can easily walk to the beach and enjoy the fishing pier or wave runner and umbrella rentals. Jones Park is 1/2 block away and features a walking trail and splash pad for the kids. If you're a fitness junkie, then you're in luck! Free gym access is 1/2 block away as well.

Wonderful, delightful restaurants featuring Seafood, Italian, Mexican, Cajun, Coastal, Steak and other sumptuous cuisine is literally less than 5 minutes away from Le Shabby Chateau. You can experience the vitality of the newly-renovated, booming downtown district in Gulfport or mosey along the beach toward Long Beach and Pass Christian and enjoy a beach view while dining.

If you enjoy gaming, Le Shabby Chateau is 3 blocks from Island View Casino and within 20 minutes of 10 other casinos!

Attractions are plentiful and you'll definitely want to 'swim with the dolphins' while visiting the Marine Institute. Or perhaps you'd like to feed an alligator on one of the delightful swamp tours.

Regardless of what activities and sights you choose while visiting the Mississippi Gulf Coast, you'll want to come back to Le Shabby Chateau again and again. She's filled with love, serenity and charm and She's more than happy to share it with your family and friends.

Le Shabby Chateau sleeps 6 (possibly 8) and has 3 bedrooms, two baths, living, dining, built-in front porch, large patio/carport, back porch/breakfast area.

The adorable back yard cottage (Le Petit Chateau - see listing here: vrbo 653151 ) sleeps one to two persons and has a full bed, full bath, sitting area, and kitchenette with a microwave, toaster oven, portable electric cook tops, small sink, and mini fridge. The yard is private, quiet, and features native palms and plants.

You do not have to rent the cottage with the main house. However, if you rent the 3 bedroom/2bath main house (Le Shabby Chateau) with the one bed/full bath cottage (Le Petit Chateau), rates will be discounted.

So what are you waiting for? C'mon on down and give us a visit!

About Betsy Modglin

Resident of Gulfport MS for over 5 years while living at Le Shabby Chateau. Love the Coast and everything about it so I decided I couldn't part completely with Le Shabby Chateau so decided to turn her into a vacation rental. I love to antique, junk, restore and repurpose so that fit in perfectly.

Betsy Modglin purchased this house in 2006

Why Betsy Modglin chose Gulfport

I bought Le Shabby Chateau in September 2006 after being recruited to the area as a marketing executive. She was a bit of a wreck having just weathered Hurricane Katrina less than a year earlier. Nonetheless, the charm and love within Her walls was obvious from the moment I walked inside. I restored Her and made her my year round home until 2011 when family illness brought me back to Southern Illinois. It wasn't until June 2013 that I decided to share Le Shabby Chateau with the world. See the full story on Her Facebook page, Le Shabby Chateau.

What makes this house unique

Close to the beach! Did I tell you she was within a couple of blocks of the beach?! Close to booming downtown Gulfport, restaurants, casinos, nightlife, area attractions, New Orleans, and Mobile.

The house is quaint, comfortable, and charming. The yard is quiet, private, and in a great neighborhood.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Loved this charming home.

  • 5 of 5

Let me begin with the house was perfect. It was spotless and it had everything you needed. This was by far the most charming place we have stayed at. We didn't even want to go to beach because the house was so lovely. Can't wait to return.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Patricia! It makes my day to know you enjoyed my home as much as I do. I work hard to put myself in the guest's place so you will feel right at home while staying at Le Shabby Chateau. Would love to have you back any time!

Comfortable and Cozy

  • 5 of 5

This sweet little house had plenty of room for our crew to either be together or apart. It's on a quiet street that doesn't get any thru traffic. The beach and a really nice park are both within a short walk. The patio outside was perfect for early morning and evening bird watching in the thick foliage that surrounds the property. I did lots of reading out there....loved it. I did have a concern about the proximity of the train track - but it wasn't really a detriment. Our grandson was fascinated and that became (next to the beach) the highlight of his day. The owner responsive and always reachable for questions. Thanks Betsy!

The house was way more than expected. So cute! Close to everything.

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautifully decorated and well taken care of. The patio was nice in the morning and evening. Even during rainy days the patio was enjoyed thanks to the covering. We used the BBQ grill several times as well as utilized the kitchen to cook most of our meals. The owner was very responsive and great on giving advice on local activities. Read the guestbook and take the prior vacationers advice!! Would recommend this home to anyone! Thanks again Betsy!

The house was beautiful accept the air conditioner wasn't working properly my group was never comfortable with the temperature in the house she called out to air conditioner guys and they both said the same thing she doesn't have enough insulation and she knew that that was the problem the group before us left a day early because of the uncomfortable temperature in the house

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words about my home. We've put a lot of time and money into updating and decorating for the comfort of our guests. I took your comment to heart about the insulation and had a company come and check the attic. The insulation expert said the attic was perfect with the exception of one small spot. It was fixed. The AC unit is only one year old and has never fallen short of keeping our guests comfortable in the past. I think in your case the uncomfortable temperatures was due to the number of people you had in the home and the large event you hosted there on the 4th of July. You made no mention of an event nor did you ask permission to host a party. Had you brought this up I would have told you that hosting a party is absolutely against the terms of the rental agreement and would result in immediate eviction. I was also disappointed when I discovered that the kitchen floor was ruined with a large yellow stain. Again, this is unfortunate as I pride myself in making certain guests are comfortable but I will not allow my home to be used as an event center.
