We are originally from New Orleans, La. We moved to Mississippi about 25 years ago and we love it here! There is so much to do and we can always hop over to New Orleans or Florida for a quick get away. My wife and I enjoy traveling, water sports, horseback riding, cookouts with friends, movies, good food etc.
Living on this lake is like being on vacation all of the time and we like to share the peace and serenity we experience here with travelers from around the country and the world. The former mother in law suite located on the second floor of our home is perfect for vacation or business travelers as well as snowbirds. Even though we live in a very safe area many of our guests find comfort in the fact that I am a Police Officer. Being a Police Officer also helps to deter unruly guests from booking with us.
When my wife and I travel we like a clean and comfortable space and that is what we strive to provide for our guests. We also value our privacy when we travel and like to be left on our own so when we are hosting we like to greet our guests, show them where everything is and then leave them alone to enjoy their stay yet make ourselves available should they need us. We want our guests to have the most enjoyable visit possible and we appreciate any feedback that helps us to provide that.
Looking forward to meeting you whether we are your hosts or a guest of yours!
