Couple glad to be back home in east Biloxi

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Pat Kuluz is glad to be back home in east Biloxi after a five year hiatus. But getting there was not easy.  Like thousands of others, Kuluz had a major hurdle to clear.

"Well, insurance problems to start with," Kuluz said. "Financing. We had to obtain a lawyer to get some money from them." 

Even with those problems, Kuluz said the view of the Mississippi Sound and Deer Island is breathtaking.  

"I've lived on the beach all my life, so I take it for granted. But it just can't be beat, just can't be beat. There's always activity, always boats going out." 

Despite the fact that Pat Kuluz had doubts about ever rebuilding down on the Point again in Biloxi, even with the spectacular views, he had one thing going for him: The strong will of his wife who insisted that they come back home.  

"This was her idea to come back. And then she pushed me about it and we're both glad we did." 

One thing that isn't so beautiful are the overgrown, empty lots on each side of the new home, and behind the house on Lee Street.  But that doesn't really bother Kuluz that much.  He likes the quiet.  

"Solitude every now and then is very good for the soul, and we enjoy it. We enjoy it, but my wife probably misses the neighbors that we had before."

But until the problems that hamper rebuilding, like high insurance costs and higher elevation requirements are solved, Pat Kuluz and his wife will probably will be by themselves for years to come. 

In addition to the views, Kuluz said being back on the water allows him to enjoy his favorite pastime, wetting a line and catching a few fish.
