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.

Perfect Rental Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is absolutely perfect! I rented it for the weekend to attend my grandsons 1st bday. It was nice to be able to have the immediate family over for dinner on Friday night before the big party on Saturday. We ordered almost the whole menu for take out from Phoenicia Gourmet Restaurant and it was so delicious, we went back for breakfast in the morning!

The cottage was very clean; equipped with everything we needed and very comfortable! I will definitely be back! Thank you so much Cindy, You're the best!

Great quiet location

We had a great time relaxing in the cottage. The beach was beautiful and was so close by. I enjoyed the splash pad and children's park for my little one.

Home away from home

We loved the decor and small, special touches at the Butterfly Cottage. A perfect little home away from home for my family's summer vacation.

Wonderful House in a Great Town

  • 5 of 5

Ocean Springs is a delightful town that has it all if your goal is to enjoy strolls, sunsets and the best donuts ever! The people of the town were so thoughtful and neighborly offering help with carrying packages, a dry porch out of the rain and great conversation. The Butterfly House is in a great location; a few blocks from the beach and a few blocks from downtown. The house is set up with a very inviting atmosphere with great decor and livable spaces. The bedrooms and bathrooms make it a perfect place to share with another couple or for a family. It feels like a home - clean, practical appliances, and porches to enjoy coffee. We are telling friends and hope to return next year.
