Scott and Trinity Walker are into property.
They are still working on a B&B permit for their own home on East Beach.
But now they are also Walker and Walker Management Group.
Their newest property is The Nest “that sits high above the tree tops!” on the beach in Long Beach, according to the management group’s Facebook page. It’s an interesting-looking, multilevel home permitted as a short-term rental and booking up well for the summer, Scott Walker said.
The Walkers also bought the strip mall on U.S. 90 near downtown Ocean Springs that has Classy Cat hair salon on one end. They have a 500-square-foot vacancy there they are looking to fill.
The management group is focused on “maintaining and revitalizing commercial and residential properties throughout the Gulf Coast,” according to the Facebook page.
The Nest, a beachfront two-bedroom, two-bath cottage is on VRBO.com and Airbnb.
It was approved by the Long Beach Board of Aldermen on Feb. 21. Scott Walker said Long Beach was helpful in getting permits for the property and questions the cap Ocean Springs has placed on the number of short-term rentals it allows. They are seeking B&B status for their home on East Beach instead, but that process is changing and may be getting more difficult. It may soon require neighborhood approval.
