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!

Charming Cottage in Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Moon Pie. We were able to walk to the local coffee houses every morning and to the downtown restaurants easily. It's location was also very convenient to East Beach, where we spent much of our time with family. However, having a place to ourselves made our time in Ocean Springs special.

Great location and a beautiful little cottage! You'll love it!

  • 5 of 5

Great cottage and a great location. Lots of extras that you typically don't have with a rental. Ocean Springs is a wonderful small town! If you haven't been, I suggest you go and stay at Moon Pie Cottage! No complaints at all! Also, kudos to Sonia Cowart. Great owner/landlord! I'll definitely be back.

Great stay at Moon Pie

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed staying at the Moon Pie Cottage. Very well equipped and stocked. We took so many things that we never had to use like seasonings, laundry detergent, paper towels, etc. Many rentals only provide very small quanties of essentials so you wind up having to hit a dollar general and pick up dishwasher detergent even toilet paper. I really appreciated how nicely stocked Moon Pie was. We also spent a lot of time on the front and back porch. I would love to go back to Ocean Springs and stay at Moon Pie again. Ocean Springs has a great vibe. Very beautiful and super friendly people. We had wonderful seafood at several different restaurants. My husband and I like Ocean Springs so much we are considering retiring there

Charming little house in the perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

Just a few blocks from beach and restaurants, this cottage is ideal.

A very clean little house with a wonderful porch that presents just as it is shown in photos. Easy check-in and quick response from owner.
