Snow birds enjoy exclusive tours of luxury condos

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Luxurious master suites. State-of-the-art kitchen, located on acres of lush tropical landscaping. That's how the brochure describes the Sea Breeze Condominium Resort in Biloxi.

"I'm so impressed with the view here," said Darryl O'Donnell.

She heard about the property from a friend and wanted to see the rooms and amenities for herself.

"It's perfect," she said during a tour of two luxury units.

O'Donnell and her husband are snowbirds from Westport, Connecticut. They're looking for a condo to rent when they visit Biloxi every year.

"First of all, you can stay here as long as you want and I plan to stay for three months," said O'Donnell. "And it's so much more convenient than staying at a hotel."

Sterling Resorts, which manages the Sea Breeze, Beau View, and Sienna on the Coast condominiums, hosted an open house Wednesday to give winter visitors an exclusive tour of its properties.

"To those people who are here visiting family or possibly staying somewhere else now, we just want to invite them to come stay at our property or look at our property and take a tour so they can see what we have to offer here at Sterling," said Michelle Erickson, Property Manager for Sea Breeze.

Managers are also offering snow birds winter vacation discounts.

"The longer term that they stay, then the better rate that we're able to offer them," said Erickson.

"This is very lovely," said O'Donnell.

Darryl O'Donnell is ready to make Biloxi her home away from home.

"My husband said if I like it, then go ahead and book it and that's what I'm going to do," said O'Donnell. "He likes to make me happy. Keep me happy, and I keep him happy."

Snow bird condos average about $2,000 a month. The price varies, depending on the size of the units.
