NOVEMBER & DECEMBER OPENINGS!! CHECK OUT THE CALENDAR & ASK ABOUT SPECIAL RATES!! Perfect LOCATION!! If you are looking for a beautiful town on the Gulf Coast to spend some time at the beach, then Ocean Springs may just have that quaint little town atmosphere you are looking for! This cottage is about location, location, location!! The beach and downtown are both within 2 & 1/2 blocks of the cottage. The fall sun is beautiful here, the sand and beach chairs are ready, grill is ready to be fired up on the back porch, Tatonut is making the best donuts ever, and the restaurants are serving up great menus!

This beautiful little cottage has been totally renovated from floors to ceiling and boasts a brand new fully equipped kitchen, appliances, bathrooms & fixtures along with a new stackable washer/dryer. The location is perfect for your family beach vacations or weekend getaways and ready for your enjoyment and pleasure as you spend time around the beautiful and quaint town of Ocean Springs, Mississippi.

Butterfly Cottage is a private home located in a quiet neighborhood near the downtown Historic Ocean Springs. I have enjoyed getting to know our neighbors who are fun and interesting people whose friendship, privacy and quiet enjoyment of their homes and community are very important to us. Please treat our home and neighbors with the same respect you would your own. We hope you enjoy your stay.

About Cynthia Hokenbrough

My daughter married a long time resident of Ocean Springs. They settled into a quiet life here on the Gulf Coast this past decade and invited me to come enjoy this wonderful little town. I fell in love with the relaxed life style and warm winters, but it also is allowing me to enjoy the cultural experiences of Walter Anderson Museum, Shearwater Pottery, and the entire historic Ocean Springs community. Front Beach and Fort Maurepas Park, ONLY 2 blocks from Butterfly Cottage, are just a few of my grandsons and my favorite places to play, ride bike, and relax. And at the end of the day, walking less than 3 blocks to downtown we can enjoy some of the finest restaurants and shopping on the Gulf Coast!

Cynthia Hokenbrough purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Cynthia Hokenbrough chose Ocean Springs

This cottage is easily at the center of all the activity and experiences Ocean Springs has to offer. One can easily walk to the center of town in one direction and to the beach in the opposite direction. Everything is very close and convenient.

A little piece of paradise in Biloxi

  • 5 of 5

We were there for a few days visiting my son who is stationed at Kessler AFB. We absolutely loved the Butterfly Cottage. We most definitely will be back for a second stay. Thanks so much for allowing us to make priceless memories with my son and my family. If you are ever in Biloxi be on the look out for this little quaint cottage. It is a little piece of Paradise in Biloxi.
