Private Homes townhome description

We are booking spring & summer 2015 NOW! Book now to pick your favorite week!

Welcome to HIGH TIDE Cottage by the Sea! Near the Village and Lighthouse. Newly updated and renovated for 2014, we welcome you to our home. Please read our reviews.

Bored with Breakers, Is the Grand too high, Beach Club a little shabby? Why settle for water-view? Are the Coast Cottages too far from the water? You deserve direct OCEAN-FRONT!

Read these comments:

'What a week! My family and in-laws arrived tired and stressed and are now leaving relaxed and revived. This is such a wonderful place. It is so much bigger and private than some high rise condo. We spent every evening on the deck enjoying the ocean sounds and that awesome breeze. Thanks, John & Marjorie...we will be back.'

The Heltons: Dan, Michelle, Jessica and Kevin; Ron & Geneva Rook

'We certainly enjoyed Saint Simons & High Tide Cottage. Having a 'back yard' ocean is something we could look at forever! What a joy to see dolphins frolicking in the bay with the sunrise each morning. Thanks for a fun week!'

Mark & Rhonda Paradis of Lebanon, New Jersey

'It's great to find a beach house that exceeds expectations by so much. The surroundings are fantastic. We felt like guests in someone's home instead of renters at a vacation property. Thanks so much.'

The Bacons of Peachtree City, Georgia

Welcome to HIGH TIDE COTTAGE located directly on the sandy shore of the Atlantic Ocean near the Lighthouse, south of the KING & PRINCE resort. This is THE premier oceanfront location on St. Simons Island, not 2 blocks inland like Coast Cottages.

Don't spend your dollars on a so-called GRAND condo, when you can have a stunning, unobstructed view of the ATLANTIC OCEAN right outside your bedroom window. This is absolutely the best view of the beach and ocean on St. Simons Island. Don't make a GRAND sized mistake. Instead, stay at HIGH TIDE COTTAGE for the ultimate family beach front vacation!

Both your living room and master bedroom have fabulous balconies that actually overlook the ocean - if you were any closer you would get wet! At low tide, we have over a hundred feet of white sand beach, and at high tide, we have about 20 feet of sand. Handicap access ramp to beach over the rocks is less than 50 yards away. Watch bottle-nose dolphins play and jump just offshore, see big ships making their daily trips into and out of the Port of Brunswick. Why settle for a stack-a-shack condo at Beach Club or Breakers? High Tide Cottage puts the K & P Villas to shame!

Our ocean front home is directly ON THE WATER - just 3 blocks from the village pier and 1 block from St. Simons beautiful water park with lifeguard protection. This is a quiet residential neighborhood and features beautifully landscaped grounds. This is our private home, not some impersonal high rise 'CLUB' condo with no personality except for a GRAND rental fee. Remember, when an advertiser says 'walk to the beach', they often mean 'a mile from the water.'

Most VRBO properties offer only an OCEAN GLIMPSE - what a disappointment. Instead, you deserve a real ocean front home for your vacation!! More than 3000 square feet of luxury! For spectacular pictures, please click on the link below. I took these pictures myself, most from the deck at HIGH TIDE COTTAGE and the real thing is even better than these photos! And the guest comments are directly from our guest book! Don't rent at a so-called Beach Club when you can have the BEACH in your BACK YARD.

If you stay anywhere else, you will have paid too much and accepted a non-beachfront home that will disappoint you. Don't fall prey to 'add-on' expenses, when you can get a great value at HIGH TIDE.

First, check my AVAILABILITY CALENDAR, then CALL ME AT THE TOLL FREE NUMBER BELOW FOR Week Long Vacations. Most rentals are Saturday to Saturday. Last minute weekend rentals OK if I have space available. This is a SMOKE FREE property.

HIGH TIDE COTTAGE is situated on 3 levels. The TERRACE LEVEL contains a very large 1 car garage. Behind the garage is a bedroom suite with a king bed, full bath & den area with sofa, comfy chairs, and large screen TV. Off the den is a small bedroom with bunk beds (twin on top, full size futon on lower) w/ cable tv (perfect for kids). This terrace suite has direct access to the oceanfront as well as interior stair access to the upper levels. The TERRACE SUITE is a great bedroom for grandparents or a visiting couple since it is more private. Kids love it too.

The LIVING ROOM LEVEL is completely open and perfect for socializing. There is a large, fully equipped kitchen, large separate dining room, large living area with TV, DVD, and stereo, and a covered porch w/ a fabulous view of the ocean. It has a table and chairs and stairs that lead down to the terrace level which overlooks the beach. In addition, this level features a large bedroom (2 twin beds can be pushed together = a king) w/ full bath.

The UPPER LEVEL has two large bedrooms (king in master, king in second bedroom) and two full private baths. There is also a porta-crib on this floor for little ones not ready for a 'big bed' yet.

Each bedroom on this level has a TV and a covered deck with comfy chairs, perfect for reading and relaxing in the shade, away from the main living area. The master deck overlooks the beach and ocean with a spectacular 180 degree ocean view.

That's a total of 4 full bedrooms (3 king size beds + 1 pair of twin size beds) plus an additional set of bunk beds (one twin + one full) on the terrace level.

Don't spend your hard earned vacation dollars on a NON-oceanfront property when you can have the vacation of a lifetime at HIGH TIDE. Skip those 'stack-a-shack' condos and stay with us directly on the ocean! The view is simply breath-taking!

WARNING: Coast Cottages are NOT located on the beach, and do NOT have more than an ocean glimpse. Don't be fooled by their stock photos showing beachfront. The water is a full block away. High Tide Cottage is DIRECTLY overlooking the beach!

PET FRIENDLY: Small pets may be accepted based on size and availability. Call for details. A non-refundable pet fee, refundable pet deposit and signed pet agreement will be required prior to occupancy.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2001

                  About the owner: John & Marjorie Adams of metro Atlanta, Georgia are your hosts at High Tide Cottage on Saint Simons Island. You can call 1-888-373-6000 anytime. We first visited HIGH TIDE COTTAGE in 1994 shortly after it was built. When we had the chance to obtain an ownership interest, we jumped at the opportunity. Now we can share our home with you. We encourage you to compare our waterfront home with any accommodation on the island. We offer you the best view and the best value available anywhere on Saint Simons Island. And we are committed to providing you with an EXCELLENT vacation experience.

                  Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                  High Tide Cottage is located DIRECTLY on the sandy beach of the ATLANTIC OCEAN so you can watch the waves come and go 24 hours a day. Most homes on the island are either half a mile back from the beach or only offer an ocean glimpse from the top floor. There is no other property on Saint Simons with as much of a full frontal view of the water as HIGH TIDE COTTAGE. We fell in love with this property the first time we saw it (actually our jaws dropped to the floor when we walked inside and saw the view) and still get goose bumps whenever we are here.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
                  The unique benefit of staying here is that you are secure in the knowledge that you have not been ripped off by some big impersonal real estate company, and that you are, in fact, staying in someone's home on Saint Simons Island. We actually CARE that you have a great vacation, and will do anything within reason to ensure that you stay is memorable.
