Walk to Biloxi Beach and Lighthouse

House - Entire home/apt · Benachi Avenue, Biloxi, MS 39530, United States

The Space

Great place to spend a relaxing summer in this 3 Bedroom/2 Bathroom updated beach cottage. It is a short walk to the beach, lighthouse, and entertainment in Biloxi. Shopping, local restaurants and parks are also located nearby. The large eat-in kitchen is tiled and has a large laundry closet with washer and dryer. Other appliances include refrigerator, gas range, microwave, and dishwasher. The bathrooms have stone flooring, all other rooms are hardwood. Located midway between Mobile, Alabama and New Orleans, LA.

Guest Access

House, driveway, and fenced in back patio area with a grill.

There are a few bikes at the house that have been left by previous guests. I can't guarantee their condition but, you are welcome to use them.

Interaction with Guests

I generally meet the guests upon arrival to check them in and answer any questions.

The Neighborhood

I love visiting the nearby park, the beach, and the West End Fire House Museum with my son.

And, there are plenty of things to do for adults nearby, as well.

There is a nearby spot on the beach (at Porter and Beach Blvd. in front of the lighthouse) for bonfires (you have to get a permit through the Harrison County Sand Beach Authority).

If you are unfamiliar with the area:

There are train tracks that run along the Mississippi Gulf Coast which run between the house and the beach. The train comes by every few hours or so and is noticeable but is generally a fact of life along this portion of the Gulf Coast, at least in proximity to the beach. Most people find that it fades into the background; but it can take some getting used to, if you are sensitive to it. My (two year old) son loves it and it is probably the highlight of his time here.

Getting around

There are several nearby bus stops (within a block or two), including the Beach Comber on Beach Blvd. The beach and downtown are easily accessible by bike or walking

Other Things to Note

If you have any special requests, please let me know and I will try to accomodate them. For example: If you want specialty products or organic groceries, prepare a list and I can bring the items over from New Orleans and have them for you when you arrive.

  • What a lovely place! Easy walk to the beach, close to grocery, mexican and seafood joint. The host went out of her way to make us comfortable...even providing a little shade tent for those of us who can't do the sun. Comfy living room and even a great selection of DVDs. And the kitchen is crowd friendly too! Don't be afraid of the train coming thru...we slept thru it all. Added to the ambiance. We will be back!

  • It was a great, spacious house and walkable from the beach. They had a nice driveway for us to park in. The washer and dryer were very convenient. We liked having the kitchen. There was a nice binder with brochures and menus so that we could plan our stay. Very close to a supermarket and a park.

    Christina also left out baby toys for us so that our 7-month-old could play. She felt right at home.

    I highly recommend it!

  • We (three adults) found this to be a great place to relax. It was a comfortable ultra-clean house, minimalist decor but with everything you need. Nice neighborhood. Easy interesting walk to the beach, which quickly became a daily routine. Easy to get around farther afield. Christy was gracious and generous, providing lots of thoughtful extras. We were delighted with our too-short stay.

  • We had the best time staying in Christina's beautiful and charming house. It was the perfect spot for our family's Spring Break getaway. The house was very clean and comfortable and we loved sitting on the front porch and walking to the beach. In added bonus for us was the fact that Christina had beach toys for our 2 year old to use and there was a nice playground close by. Christina was very helpful and communicative throughout. She gave great recommendations and the guide she left was very helpful. Were very happy that picked this home to spend our family vacation and we hope to return again soon!

I live with my husband (French) and son (demi-francais) in New Orleans, LA. We lived in Biloxi before moving to New Orleans, and still enjoy spending some time there to get out of the city and relax at the beach. My background is in Architecture and Historic Preservation. My husband and I love to travel both in the states and internationally.
