Crawfish wishes & Diamondhead dreams

Louisiana couple settle into life on the Secret Coast

Do you believe in love at first sight? Betsy and Shane Miller do.

It happened to the couple not just once, but twice — first when they met many moons ago, and again upon visiting the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

Shane, a U.S. Army veteran, loves going to work every day as a corporate pilot, flying individuals, business execs and celebrities around the world. Betsy, an interior designer and entrepreneur, enjoys home design, marketing and crawfish — more on that later.

The pair loves spending time on the water. While boating was convenient in the rural area of Louisiana where they lived, the airport was over an hour away, and stores also were a trek. Betsy, a Georgia native, missed the conveniences of living closer to a city and started searching for places they would both enjoy calling home.

Once they’d arrived on the Coast, Betsy and Shane fell in love with the area and the people they’d met during their visit. The location was a huge draw, as was the ease of travel — with Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport and Louis Armstrong New Orleans Airport within a short drive.

They were delighted to find a Diamondhead home within a block from the water to dock their boat. Not only is their home located in an airport community, but the house also came with an airplane hangar and runway in the backyard.

While the home was nearly perfect, it needed Betsy’s interior design touches to get it just right. Luckily the Coast offers more affordable home prices, leaving some money left over for tweaks to get the house just right.

After completing the renovations, Betsy and Shane embarked on their next venture, Crawfish MAX LLC. The Millers combined their love of crawfish and long-standing relationships with top-notch farmers to bring high-quality, farm-direct live crawfish to Coastal Mississippi. Customers have raved about the fresh taste and quality, proclaiming, “Crawfish MAX is your source for Louisiana’s MAXimum crawfish.”

Betsy and Shane Miller aren’t just Mississippi business owners, but also residents involved in and supporting their local communities. They are grateful for their friends, neighbors and customers and the incredible lifestyle of living in their dream home on the Secret Coast.
