Situated on the southeastern coast of Mississippi, Diamondhead is part of the Gulfport-Biloxi metropolitan area. Because it's just less than an hour away from New Orleans, Diamondhead has become a popular destination over the years for singles, couples and families looking for homes for rent in a place that's close to major cities yet still retains a laid-back vibe. Offering numerous opportunities for outdoor recreation, shopping and gaming, Diamondhead is the perfect city for those who want to settle in the Gulfport Coast region.
Although Diamondhead isn't located on the Gulf Sea, but on the Bay of Saint Louis, the city still has seaside charm. Outdoor activities are plentiful in Diamondhead, and future renters will certainly enjoy taking a boat out from the marina or playing golf at a palm tree-lined course overlooking the bay. In addition to its many marinas and bayside restaurants, the area also boasts a slew of specialty shops and several casinos, most of which are situated along the Gulf Coast.
