Overview

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!

Quaint Cozy and Convenient

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is the perfect size for 4.

The location is an easy walk to historic downtown Ocean Springs,

and the infamous Walter Anderson Museum.

Time away from the hubbub

  • 5 of 5

This is the cutest house. Charming and comfortable. it is convenient to restaurants, the main thoroughfares, and highways. But, you won't want to leave the house much. Sit in the porch swing, as I did. Walk the labyrinth across the street. I found this the perfect place to have uninterrupted time to write and just ponder.

Convenient and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Moonpie Cottage -- even if it was cut short by Hurricane Nate. The beds were comfortable, kitchen was well-stocked and we loved the front porch swing! The cottage is within walking distance to shops & restaurants and the beach. The owner works next door and she checked in on us -- wish I could have spent more time chatting (maybe next time). :)

I would definitely recommend Moonpie Cottage to anyone visiting Ocean Springs.

My awesome weekend

  • 5 of 5

The house is sooo! cute, clean and cozy. It was spacious enough for both couples to have our privacy. The front porch was amazing. I will recommend it to friends.

Great Vacation

  • 4 of 5

The moon cottage was cozy and in a great location. We enjoyed our slow mornings on the front and back porches. Also found an outside prayer labyrinth at the church across the street. Easy Access to get to Biloxi or Gulfport (we went to Ship Island twice). Overall great experience!
