Coast Cottages cottage description

Interior size: approx 2100 sf

Address of property: 16 Coast Cottage Lane, St. Simons Island, GA 31522

Retreat Cottage is like an art gallery on the beach ... literally! The owner is a gifted artist who has decorated this home with original oil and water color paintings throughout. You can't help but be inspired when you spend your vacation at Retreat Cottage!

And it’s only 175 steps from St. Simons Island’s very best stretch of beach. Retreat is located within view of the Atlantic Ocean in St. Simons finest vacation home neighborhood, Coast Cottages.

This classic beach home has three bedroom suites, each with its own full bath. Retreat sleeps up to 8 people. Bedroom 1 has two sets of sturdy bunks and a full bath ... a perfect room for the kids. Bedroom 2 is like a small master suite with a luxurious queen bed and ensuite bath. Bedroom 3 is the grand master featuring a sumptuous king bed, en suite bath fit for the royal couple, and a breathtaking private balcony with views of the Historic Coast Guard Station, sailboat park, and the Atlantic Ocean.

Retreat Cottage has an open arrangement on the main level where your family will gather for meals, entertainment and lots of chit-chat. You'll love the high ceilings, rich natural pine floors, and bright airy floor plan. The living room features plush, comfortable furniture and a flat screen TV, DVD player and stereo. The kitchen is thoughtfully arranged and fully equipped for cooking those delicious vacation meals.

The dining table seats six with seating for four more at the breakfast bar nearby. When you’re through eating, step out on the ocean side balcony and relax with a book in the gentle sea breeze. You can see the ocean, smell the salt air and feel the sea breeze without ever leaving the house!

You’ll enjoy full privileges at Coast Cottages' fabulous beach front pools and pavilion. The 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.)

Retreat Cottage is a place of great beauty and inspiration. You might even decide to purchase some of its fabulous original art right off the wall! But our main hope is that you enjoy your most memorable vacation ever at this wonderful St. Simons Island getaway.

              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.
