Property description

Interior size: approx 2300 sf

Address of property: 12 Coast Cottage Lane, St. Simons Island, GA 31522

In Spring 2013, Annie Laurie Cottage completed a magnificent restoration and redecoration. Everything is brand new from top to bottom, inside and out ... appliances, furniture, flooring, linens, drapery, paint, fixtures, siding, doors, windows ... the works! The interior walls are completely covered with ship-lap wood paneling, and the trim and mouldings are a work of art. It was a year-long labor of love by a very talented couple who built and furnished every corner with whimsy and practicality. Coastal Living Magazine should do a feature on Annie Laurie!

Located just 105 yards from Coast Cottages' fabulous oceanside pools, pavilion and beach boarwalk, this home is destined to be a St. Simons' superstar for years to come. You'll love the ocean views from the balconies, cleverly placed windows, and especially the rooftop deck with its built-in gallery seating. And once inside, you'll be amazed at Annie Laurie's creativity, craftmanship, and splendor.

FIRST FLOOR: Bedroom 1 is like a second master with a hand-made king bed and ensuite bath. Bedroom 2 has a hand-made queen bed with ensuite bath. The kids will love bedroom 3 with its rope-style bunk bed, built-in video screens and convenient 1/2 bath.

SECOND FLOOR: You'll love the open living, dining and kitchen arrangement where everyone can be together for family get-togethers. Enjoy a sing-along around the antique upright piano. There's plenty of comfortable seating on the wrap-around sectional with glimpses of the ocean through several windows. Check out our old-style wooden cafeteria table which seats 10 for meals. The seats tuck underneath and out of the way when not in use. And the kitchen is nothing short of amazing with its granite counters and flourishes of vintage (yet modern) appliances. The breakfast bar even has built-in soda shop stools. After breakfast, step out on the breezy, furnished balcony for a some sweet salt air and relaxing conversation among the swaying palms.

You can watch the 62' flat screen TV from almost anywhere on the second floor which has a convenient full bath. You'll also find a secluded 1/2 bedroom equipped with a handmade set of bunks, each with its own porthole window (one with an ocean view)! Bring your x-box too, because every bunk bed in Annie Laurie has a wall-mounted video screen ready for your favorite device.

THIRD FLOOR: On your way up the stairs, take a peek out the left window at the 1936 Historic Coast Guard Station about 100 yards away ... it was the architectural inspiration for Annie Laurie Cottage. Your jaw will drop as you enter a spacious master suite which occupies the entire third floor. The king headboard rises almost to the ceiling where three luxurious paddle fans slowly move the air in grand style. Fall asleep to the 62' flat screen TV, and wake up to an ocean sunrise without ever leaving the bed.

There are two sitting areas, one nestled in a gorgeous bay window with built-in seating and a fabulous ocean view. Enter the master bath through frosted glass doors and marvel at the unbelievable tile work throughout. Peak out the oval porthole window while you shower and watch the pelicans fly along the shoreline!

For a real treat, step outside and climb the circular stairs to the rooftop deck. We have built-in gallery seating so your group can enjoy an ocean sunrise over coffee, or a beautiful evening sunset over the cottages. Great for star gazing as well!

You and your family will enjoy full privileges at Coast Cottages' beach front pools and pavilion. Our award winning neighborhood sits front and center on St. Simons Island's magnificent Coast Guard beach, the widest stretch of sand on the island. This is a place where you can walk the beach at high tide, low tide, any tide! (Note: vacation rentals south of Arnold Road cannot make this claim.)

Maximum occupants: 10 at any time
Minimum two occupants age 35 or older

St. Simons Island is sometimes described as a little piece of paradise. Scarcely known outside Georgia, it is quite possibly the best kept secret along the coastal Southeast. The island's majestic entrance over miles of unspoiled marshland was memorialized by Sidney Lanier in his poem The Marshes of Glynn. It's a place where an unpretentious low country meets the great ocean ... where huge tidal changes breathe life into the grassy expanse flourishing in wildlife. Somewhere in between you will discover the magic of St. Simons Island. Upon arrival, visitors are enveloped by a feeling of calm amidst ancient moss-draped oaks standing alongside glorious palms and tall southern pines. Many miles of bike paths connect a variety of shopping, eating, cultural and recreational areas within the island. There's always something fun and interesting to do. The beach at St. Simons Island is like no other. As the 7-foot tide shifts from high to low, it pulls the shoreline 1/2 mile out to sea uncovering a breathtaking system sandbars and shoals. Development is largely unseen along the north end of the beach where an abundant shrub forest has been protected and allowed to expand naturally. Acres of young dune fields nurture sensitive Sea Oats while thousands of shore birds migrate from one sand bar to the next with the receding tide. The owners and guests of Coast Cottages at St. Simons cherish their unrestricted view and enjoyment of this ecological wonderland.

Things to do on St. Simons Island:

Kayak through the marsh streams, walk the beach, eat at many great restaurants, climb the lighthouse, golf, tennis, miniature golf, small skate board park, go shopping at many quaint shops, go antique hunting, tour Fort Frederica, tour the Old Coast Guard Station (right next door to Coast Cottages), walk the sandbars at low tide, go skim boarding along the shoreline, take a trolley tour of the island, hang out at the Coast Cottages pool, go to a water park on Jekyll Island, take paddle board lessons, go crabbing or fishing right off the pier.
