About the property

2 bedroom 1 bathroom Sleeps 5

This cozy little cottage is the same color as a banana Moon Pie thrown from a Mardi Gras float. The Moon Pie Cottage is reminiscent of vacations past in Ocean Springs, Mississippi, a sleepy little seaside village nestled between bayous and the Gulf of Mexico. You can hear the crickets, see the stars, feel the gulf breeze and you might even see a chicken cross the road! Ocean Springs is the oldest French settlement on the Gulf Coast, founded in 1699. Enjoy the 300 year old moss draped live oaks as you stroll through the neighborhood past small shops, great restaurants and art galleries. Visitors come for bird-watching, bicycling, fishing and uncrowded sandy beaches.

The Moon Pie Cottage built in 1925 is a quaint bungalow. It sits on a quiet tree-lined historic neighborhood street. Across the street is an 1893 carpenter gothic church and one of the oldest live oaks on the Gulf Coast. Just three blocks from Washington Avenue and Government Street and three blocks to the beach; you’re close to everything yet private and tucked away.

The Cottage is fully equipped with everything you’ll need to have a relaxing and carefree stay including two bedrooms with queen memory foam beds, bathroom w/shower, kitchen, full size frig w/ice maker, dishwasher, washer and dryer, TV and free internet connection. It has a front porch with a swing, a shady back porch and a patio table with umbrella for dining alfresco. So leave your stress and worries behind, bring your flip flops, try on some new adventures and refresh your soul!

Relaxing cottage

  • 5 of 5

The Moon Pie is a very relaxing cottage in a fantastic location. We were able to walk to the Peter Anderson Festival and bike to the beach each day. The cottage is quite comfortable and well appointed. We definitely recommend the Moon Pie for anyone wanting to stay in the historic district.

MOON PIE IS A REAL TREAT

  • 5 of 5

Moon Pie Cottage is near great places to eat and shops. We felt like we were staying in a safe down town out of the past. I plan to go back with my husband. Just sitting on the porch was a treat. The house had everything and well-maintained for 4 people.

perfect location to experiece Ocean Springs

  • 5 of 5

Moon Pie was cozy, comfy, clean, and just a short walk from restaurants, shops, the Walter Anderson Museum, Front Beach, and our favorite new coffee house, The Greenhouse on Porter (you have to try their biscuits!). We didn't want to leave.

Beautiful cottage

  • 4 of 5

The cottage, is clean and very nicely decorated.

The only complain that we experience was that the grass cutter started to cut the grass at 7:00 AM on Saturday

Cozy little cottage with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a weekend in Ocean Springs for a volleyball tournament. While we weren't in the cottage a ton, we found it to have all the necessities. The beds were comfortable, my number one priority, so we slept well. The location is probably the biggest draw. You are minutes from the beach, minutes from downtown, and not a far drive from anything else in town including the middle school and high school where our daughter played. The only thing the cottage didn't have that we needed were a few more bathroom hooks for towels (maybe behind the door?) and ESPN for the football game on Saturday night. The lack of ESPN wasn't a big deal for me though because I just streamed it from my computer using the WiFi. Those things are really minor though and I could understand why you might not want to add either. We were really pleased overall and felt like it was a pretty good value for the money spent. Thank you Sonia for working with us.

A charming and comfortable cottage, tucked away in a quiet and lovely corner of town.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our visit to Ocean Springs, and it was made that much sweeter by our stay in the adorable Moonpie cottage. Filled with both charm and character, the Moonpie was not only cute but comfortable. Our host, Sonia, was very accommodating, all while making us feel like we had our very own space for our family to relax in and enjoy. I'm so glad we stayed in this cottage in town, instead of in a hotel or nearby condo, as we were able to immerse ourselves in the town culture and walk pretty much everywhere. We can't wait to come back to Ocean Springs for another visit and, of course, stay at the Moonpie cottage again!
