Darien cottage description

Situated in the Historic Ridge area, just 2 ½ miles from downtown Darien, and only a mile from Blue N Hall Marina, the CoastAwhile Cottage is the perfect home base for your visit to not only Darien and McIntosh County, but Sapelo, St. Simons and Jekyll Islands, Jacksonville, and Savannah.

Your fully refurbished cottage offers 3 bedrooms and 3 full baths, as well as a large kitchen with pantry, spacious family room with cable television, separate laundry room, front and back porches and a deck. The house is approximately 1600 SQF and offers wood and tile floors throughout. All rooms have ceiling fans. The house offers free high-speed wireless Internet access.

Two bedrooms feature king-sized beds with beautiful headboards fashioned from antique doors. A third bedroom features two twin beds. All bedrooms have private full baths with tub/shower combos.

The fully equipped kitchen is perfect for cooking up seafood that you caught yourself or that you bought in one of the area’s local seafood markets.

The CoastAwhile Cottage is filled with artwork and photographs of the local landscape, bringing the beauty of our area inside to surround you during your stay.

Located on a large lot, the house affords plenty of space for a boat trailer, so bring the boat with you! The property also has power and water hook-up for a camper or travel trailer. Nearby Blue N Hall Marina offers a launch ramp, a large boat lift and bait and fuel. The marina allows easy access to Sapelo Island, Doboy Sound, Sapelo Sound, and Gray’s Reef National Marine Sanctuary.

St. Simons and Jekyll Islands, Brunswick, Jacksonville and Savannah are short drives from Darien, making CoastAwhile Cottage a perfect home base for exploring the Georgia coast.

                                CoastAwhile Cottage is very, very, very clean and quiet. It was a perfect place for my family gethering and it has plenty rooms and bathrooms for everybody. It's close to everything and very conveniet. Lots of good shopping places and nice restaurants are within 30 minutes. We ate breakfast at the house and cooked a shrimp boil(we bought local shrimp). That saved us some money. Clay and Ann are wonderful and very helpful. Definitely, will stay there again when we come to this region.

                                Owner response: Great to hear that the cottage worked out for you and your family and that you took advantage of the fresh local seafood! We hope you'll come back soon!

                                We came back home for our fourth visit. We love the Coastawhile Cottage. Has everything we need. Well equipped kitchen. Three bedrooms/three baths. So comfortable and just like home. The pictures do not do the cottage justice. Everything was very clean. It is so close to Savannah for our day trip and Jekyll Island for the low country boil. We will be back again. Can't forget Skipper's Fish Camp.

                                Our stay at CoastAwhile was great. It was very clean and the layout of the cottage was great for children and adults. The location is so easy to find and so close to Darien. Our family enjoyed the screened porch and watching the butterflies.We will plan to stay again in the future.

                                Owner response: We are happy to hear that the house and its location worked well for you and your family. We love the butterflies, too! We have tried to use native landscaping as much as possible to attract birds and butterflies! Quite a few guests have commented that one of their favorite parts of their trip was sitting on the porch with coffee in the morning watching the butterflies! Come back to see us soon!

                                We stayed at this cottage for a family vacation and really loved everything about it. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. The house was super clean and very spacious. The linens were excellent and the beds were sooo comfortable. I love the location of the property. We were close to all the beaches and a lot of other interesting things to visit :) Great place to stay!

                                This place is all you read about and more . Plenty of room , clean, large beds, 3 baths ,3 bedrooms, a large kitchen, and a lovely garden of flowers all around the cottage. Also there are no noisy neighbors. The beaches are close, and fishing and site seeing. I was really impressed when I arrived there and hope to maybe go back again. You just have to see to believe.

There's only so much that a VRBO listing can tell potential guests, so when they arrive and are pleased and then stay and are even more so, we are happy owners! Please come CoastAwhile with us anytime!

                                This was our 3rd visit to the CoastAwhile. Found it just as comfortable and clean as the previous times. We like to refer to it as our second home. Ann and Clay were so helpful as usual. We love the CoastAwhile because of the convenience to our favorite places in Savannah and Jekyll Island. Of course there is Skipper's Fish Camp. A must vist while you are in the area. Where else can you get 3 bedrooms and 3 baths for three women for this price. Certainly not at any hotel. I would strongly recommend this to anyone visiting the Savannah area. We will be back for #4.

We have access to beautiful unspoiled beaches, the amazing Altamaha River, historic Savannah, bustling Jacksonville and three airports within an hour's drive. Of course, we're happy to hear that you had another great girls' weekend, and we looking forward to booking your next stay!

                                Our Spring Break couldn't have been better (except for warmer weather). But Ann & Clay have no control over that. What they do have control of is their cottage in Darien. Finding a place to stay on this trip was my responsibility. We have had some bad experiences with VRBOs. What a relief to walk in and not smell cigarette smoke. Ann came over and made sure everything was to our liking. She had already been so helpful with her advice about the area. Many emails were sent back and forth about the cottage, Darien, St. Simons, arranging fishing trips and recommended places to eat. The listing photos do reflect the rental's appearance and amenities. There was no 'bait-n-switch.' We would recommend the cottage as a great clean place to stay for a family and not break the bank. Thanks Ann & Clay.

                                We come to Darien twice a year to fish out of Two Way Fish Camp in Darien and have stayed at the Coastawhile cottage the last 3 visits. The location is great, just 15 minutes from Two Way, with Ann and Clay being very accomodating to our needs. The cottage is the perfect size for the 4 of us with a great kitchen, living area and comfortable bedrooms. The screened in front porch is ideal for relaxing and telling end of the day fishing stories. We highly recommend this spot and have already booked our next trip.

Located just a few miles from the docks and ramps at Blue N Hall Marina, the Darien waterfront, Champney River and Two Way Fish Camp, CoastAwhile Cottage is the perfect home base for fishing adventures. We love it that y'all keep catching fish and coming back to CoastAwhile!

                                We totally enjoyed this wonderfully quaint retreat. It was spacious, comfortable and clean. It was also conveniently located within driving distance to beach fun in Jekyll Island or St Simmons, as well as 2 major cities with lots to see, Savannah, Ga and Jacksonville, Florida. We hope to return soon.

                              Owner info

                              About the owner: We escaped Atlanta in '98 and haven't looked back. We consider ourselves very fortunate to call McIntosh County home. My husband is a local business owner, operating PrideWorks Construction. When not working, we spend our time enjoying the many opportunities unique to the area (too many to list!). The family photo shown is from one of our favorite day trips to Blackbeard Island, just a short boat trip from Blue N Hall Marina.

                              Why the Owner Chose Darien:
                              The City of Darien and the surrounding area offer unlimited opportunities for visitors. My husband, a local builder, found this cottage which was in need of a little TLC. We completely renovated the house, maintaining the home's classic character, featuring heart pine floors, exposed brick chimney, and shotgun style design, while updating it to comfortably accommodate guests for an unmatched rental experience here in Darien. Whether you are staying a few days or a few weeks, the CoastAwhile Cottage offers comfort, convenience, and privacy, all at a great price!

                              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                              Explorers ourselves, we can connect you with any type of adventure that peaks your interest. From boating, birding, and beach combing to dining or relaxing and enjoying a low country boil with fresh seafood bought at one of our local docks, we will work to make sure that your experience at CoastAwhile is a memorable one!
