June 12.  No need to go further than the front patio for rosemary, fennel, thyme, tarragon, and two kinds of basil.  The first figs on the tree to the left were ripe today.  Delicious!Livingroom, with flatscreen tv, Comcast cable tv, high-speed wireless internet, and Sony stereo.

Very nice place! Don thought of every little detail and everything we needed was provided for us. Very clean and updated. Has a nice office separated from the rest of the house for nice and private time to read, rest and relax. We loved the outside shower, nature trails, fire pit…

Rene, thanks very much for the kind words. And thanks for taking such good care of the place. It's a particular pleasure to host people like you folks who enjoy the outdoors of the house in addition to the indoors. I hope the kids got a little fired up about the birds and encountered a few of the box turtles. Thanks for that hummingbird report, too. They've been unusually scarce this year. It was good to hear that you took advantage of the fresh-caught shrimp from the boats in the harbor. I like the idea of good people cooking good food in that kitchen. Reviens bientôt!

Catherine, thanks again for choosing the Harbor Garden House for your visit. I'm sorry that I was away when you checked out and didn't have an opportunity to chat. I was curious about whether your grandkids had time to ramble in the woods, and I'd like to have talked about sailing with your husband a bit more. I hope you'll come back again and we can all have a chat over a glass of homemade elderflower liqueur.

Stephan, thanks for the kind words. Please do come back to visit again. Your Dad was right; those chives that form the border in one of the back gardens are delicious. I'm cooking pork ribs with them today. The beaches are actually closer - 1.0 mile/4 minutes to East Beach and 1.6 miles/7 minutes to Front Beach by car. And by kayak or paddleboard, it's only about a half-mile to Front Beach and a mile to East Beach. Thanks for taking such good care of the house and leaving everything so neat and tidy. Don

This was our first time to use Airbnb. The house and grounds were just as described. We really enjoyed watching the birds and squirrels.

This is the best Air BNB place I have ever stayed at. The house is exceptionally clean and the furnishings are like new - they lack the well-used look and feel you get at many rentals. The host provided nice thoughtful gifts to enhance our stay and he lives next door if you nee…

Shawn, I'm very pleased that you enjoyed your stay. And I'm very happy to hear that the kids had a good time in the woods and got to see some of the famous Ocean Springs box turtles. And I hope they picked some of those ripe blackberries and sampled the mayberries. Thanks for the thoughtful review. Come back to visit.

Great location. Walking distance to downtown or beach, with benefit of quiet seclusion. Wonderful garden with outdoor shower, fun.

Response from Don:
It's great to have the house used by the families in the neighborhood. I hope all the visiting siblings and their spouses will be back for another reunion with the in-town part of the family who conveniently live right next door. And I hope those of you who grew up here had a chance to "play in the woods" again.
