About the property

Modern "Dogtrot" style Cottage - two bedroom, one and a half bath

Liliiflora Cottage is a privately owned modern “dogtrot” style vacation home. The name Liliiflora comes from the Latin name for the Japanese Magnolia tree, which was a favorite of my mothers and is a symbol of my wife and daughters combined Japanese and Mississippi heritage.

The home is newly constructed (2015) and is provisioned with all of the necessities and conveniences to ensure a comfortable stay. The “Dog Trot” design allows each of the two bedrooms to open onto a large screened breezeway, which is great for sleeping with the doors and windows open on cool nights. The porch is a great place to relax in one of the hanging hammock chairs and read a good book. The main house has vaulted ceilings, a full kitchen, half bath, laundry and a living area with flat screen TV and wireless internet. Two "Beach Cruiser" bikes are also available for guest to use.

Liliiflora Cottage is conveniently located within a five minute walk to East Beach and only a Five minute bike ride to Ocean Spring’s charming downtown area. Downtown Ocean Springs is host to the famous Walter Anderson Museum and the Mary C. O'Keefe Cultural Center, you’ll also find unique shops, art galleries, museums, the best restaurants on the coast and lots of friendly people. There is almost always something going on downtown, farmers markets and festivals during the day and plenty of night life with great live music at night. The Inner Harbor is only a couple of minutes away and is a great place to buy fresh shrimp right off the boat or book a fishing trip to the barrier islands. The area offers plenty of great fishing that is easily accessible if you prefer to bring your own boat (parking available on site). Shearwater Pottery is just east of the harbor and is an interesting place to stop in. Just a little further up the road is Front Beach. Here there are sandy beaches, picnics tables, bonfire pits, and a community fishing pier. Ft. Maurepas Park is located just across from Front Beach, which is a great place for younger children. There is a new splash pad, playground equipment and a covered picnic area. The parks amphitheater is often host to concerts and other events. Further west is the Ocean Springs/Biloxi Bridge, a very popular and scenic place for walkers to take advantage of the nearly two mile pedestrian walkway over the Mississippi Sound. On the other side of the bridge, Biloxi offers plenty of Casinos and restaurants, the world famous Ohr O'Keefe Museum of Art, the Maritime and Seafood Industry Museum, Beauvoir (The home of Confederate President Jefferson Davis) and the newly opened MGM Park (a 5,000+ seat baseball stadium that is home the Biloxi Shuckers). Ocean springs is also a great jumping off place for a day trip to New Orleans, which is only about 90 miles away, or to Mobile and Dauphin Island, 50 or so miles away.
