    My wife and I had a lovely four-day stay at the Shearwood Cottage overlooking Biloxi Bay in Ocean Springs. This cottage was cozy, comfortable, quiet, and very clean. We were impressed by the attention to detail that went into the construction and maintenance of this cottage, like small stained glass windows in walls and original paintings and other art work. The owners were easy to work with and even stopped by upon our arrival to see if we had any questions. We will definitely try to return the next time we visit Ocean Springs.

    My wife and I had a wonderful time staying at this cottage. The pictures did not do it justice. If you are looking for a private get away, then this is the place to stay!

    The communication with the owner was so easy. They were helpful in every way. We will be back soon!

    Thanks again for letting us stay in your cottage.

  • Absolutely Delightful


    We’ve stayed in many, many VRBOs, both domestic and international, and this adorable, quiet, little cottage ranks at the top! It’s set in a beautiful location and it’s even better in person than the pictures. Every little detail was thought of and provided. Homemade muffins, fire pit ready for a match, coffee, interesting books, and all the kitchen conveniences needed for a wonderful stay! The patio and front porch were favorite spots for us, as well as the comfy living room area. Don and Leigh Ann were very helpful with restaurant suggestions and hospitable in every way! We will definitely be back!
