We loved our time in this well appointed home!

  • 4 of 5

We travelled to Bay St. Louis to attend my nieces wedding. We enjoyed excellent communication with our host Mary Ellen and her house keeper. We had wonderful sleeps in the cozy, quiet rooms at the end of our event filled days! It was too cool for the pool but it looked very inviting. The skimmer net was missing and the yard needed raking. The house itself was clean and cozy. The kitchen is well appointed, but these hot tea drinking guests from Canada would have liked a tea pot and kettle, a few more coasters for our mugs and some placemats to protect the dining table! The bicycles are super fun, the community is welcoming and there are lovely little shops and restaurants to visit. We could have used another week here!

Owner's Response: Stephanie's family was easy to work with. I had good communication with our guests before their arrival and during their stay. I appreciate the thoughtful comments about the amenities in our home. I have added my grandmother's tea pot who was Canadian as well. There are also placemats and extra coasters for the dining room table. The pool skimmer net is in place as well. We have a 200 year old live oak tree in our backyard that had just finished shedding their leaves for the spring growth season. We were waiting for that shedding to be finished before doing yard maintenance in the back. It is always a pleasure to host guests, especially from far away places. We are so glad you stayed in our home and experienced the warm hospitality in Bay St. Louis.

Perfect place for family to stay for a wedding

  • 5 of 5

The picture is deceiving. This is a very roomy cottage with lots of seating, excellent beds and baths and a fully equipped kitchen. We didn’t use the pool as it was still cool and we wanted to explore as much of Bay St Louis as we could.

Lovely shops and cafes all within walking distance. Beach Blvd has nice restaurants and fun bars.

The owners couldn’t be nicer in making sure our stay was perfect.

A great place to stay if you are visiting Bay St. Louis!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the citrus house for a few days in August. It was the perfect place for our family! The house is totally refurbished and very tastefully decorated. It is a short walk to the harbor, restaurants and beach. There were a few bikes there for our use. Mary Ellen was wonderful to work with. We will definitely stay again when we visit the bay.

Walking distance to town, awesome pool, comfortable and spacious inside!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house! There was plenty of room for our family of 6 adults and 2 children. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Everything is within walking distance, but there are 5 nice bicycles that we also used to ride around town. The pool is partially shaded so it kept the water temperature cool, which was great while we were there at such a hot time of made staying outdoors actually enjoyable! We are looking forward to staying at The Citrus House again.

Second time - still great

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place to stay! Everything you need for a comfortable week. Plenty of everything! Very well maintained. This is our second vacation here - Mary Ellen couldn't be a better hostess.

The location is excellent. Close to the beach and the pool is a wonderful addition. If you enjoy seafood the Bay or the Pass is great! We enjoy the neighborhood. Nice, friendly people.
