Life's A Beach Vacation Rental

"I kept having a recurring dream where I was looking out a window, and I had no idea where this house was," Morlan said. "The view was beautiful, but totally unfamiliar to me."
One day as she was in her new Bay St. Louis vacation rental she looked out the window and realized this was the view and the house she had been searching for.
"It was the exact view in my dreams," Morlan said. "I knew this was where I was supposed to be."
"Life's a Beach" peach cottage overlooks the Bay Bridge at 107 Carroll Avenue near the Old Town Presbyterian Church. Whether it's a couple looking for a romantic getaway or a large family looking to have some fun in Bay St. Louis, "Life's a Beach" can accommodate 2 to 6 people.
Two houses from the beach and two blocks from Old Town Bay St. Louis, vacationers will find lots to do in walking distance of the cottage. The newly installed outdoor shower is especially convenient for those looking to soak up the sun and sand during their vacation.
Inside, the house has all the comforts of home with a full kitchen and full-sized appliances. The entire home is wheelchair friendly, even the large indoor shower. There's also Wi-Fi and lots of TV channels for those who want to relax with their favorite programs.
For those wanting to escape technology, there's plenty of opportunity for that, too. Just take your coffee on the front patio and catch a gorgeous Gulf Coast sunrise.
Morlan's favorite places to eat in Bay St. Louis? She recommends the Blind Tiger — "Try the Royal Reds!" — and Buoys for their burgers. She also likes the Purple Banana for a sweet treat or 200 North Beach if you are looking to treat yourself to a nice dinner.
"Life's a Beach" is also a perfect place to be for Cruisin' the Coast, but you have to book early. Morlan says 2016 is already booked up, but her cottage is a great place to see the cars go down the beachfront road — and she has plenty of parking to boot.
