Donna Meeks purchased this Townhouse in 1986
Why Donna Meeks chose Biloxi
In 1986, after an extensive search, with its ageless architectural beauty with European influence set within Biloxi’s Historic District, The French Townhouse was purchased. Steeped in the area’s history dating back to 1699, it is only steps away from the glitter of world-class casinos, resorts, entertainment and the beach. The tropical climate makes walking to the many nearby venues, the historic Main Street District, the View Marche', and the quaint Rue Magnolia shopping and art area an experience within itself. With its own private New Orleans-style courtyard and luxurious living room with views of the world class Beau Rivage Resort, it's the perfect getaway to relax at the end of the day and the perfect intimate escape. Don't risk your vacation! As 1-of-2 legally licensed vacation rental properties in Biloxi, MS, we meet all city zoning and safety requirements and posses the required “Conditional Use Permit for Short-Term Rental”. No risk of being cancelled due to illegal operation (a hot topic in Biloxi). Call the Biloxi Code Enforcement Department with property addresses to verify which properties are licensed with the required “Conditional Use Permit for Short-Term Rental” (license # 3742).

We are 1 of only 3 legally licensed properties listed on VRBO in Biloxi, so there is NO risk of your vacation being shut down by the city (we have rescued dozens of renters who unknowingly rented from unlicensed properties then had their vacations cancelled by the owners after being cited by the City of Biloxi with fines of $1000.00 per day for operating illegally without a license)!
Located in the heart of the View Marche, the Rue Magnolia, the Historic District AND the Arts District, and on the Mardi Gras routes and Cruising the Coast venues, the French townhouse is within 700 feet of the beach, the upcoming MGM Shucker's stadium, crabbing, windsurfing, historic sites, antiquing, shopping, coastal ecology boat tours, tour train, trolly and transit service, bicycle rentals, and gambling at world class casinos, famous restaurants and resorts. The ferry to Ship Island, Fort Massachusetts, world-class golf courses, Gulf Island National Seashore and the Gulfport, Biloxi International Airport are all within a 15-minute drive.
