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.

Lovely, clean and very comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Ocean Springs. The location of the property is very convenient to the beach, local restaurants and bars and minutes to Biloxi.

The property is nice, very clean and comfortable. We bought groceries and had almost every meal at the house. The kitchen is well equipped, we didn’t need for anything in all of our meal prep.

I would recommend this cottage to anyone that is considering staying here.
