Private Homes cottage description

Located on one of the more tree-canopied streets on the island, our home will provide you with the perfect vacation getaway you have been looking for. The live oaks that cover this area give you the feeling like you are in your own world. Once you park your car under the carport in the back, you may not need to use it again during your stay.

We are in a convenient location at the south end of the island, just about a 10-minute (0.4 mile) walk to the beach and 15-minute (0.7 mile) walk to the village. We are also centrally located to many great restaurants and fun activities for the whole family to discover. Cummings Lane is a very cozy, quiet, and peaceful location. It is only one block long with more people walking than driving. The trees and landscaping provide a sense of privacy and seclusion from neighbors. It is truly our favorite street on the island.

The open style floor plan and outdoor porches provide for very comfortable living. The bedrooms each have their own bathroom and can be considered to be their own suite. Amenities include cable TV, wireless internet access, fully-equipped kitchen, and more. The cottage has all that you will need for a great vacation getaway.

As new owners last year, we made many improvements to the property while we were snowbirding during the winter of 2013. We removed the carpet and put down wood flooring. We installed a new dishwasher and water heater and replaced all shower heads and faucets. There is a new blue ray player in the living room and a new flat screen TV in the master bedroom. Outside in the front we built a paver path and put in many new plants in the front yard.

Our latest improvements include a large deck out back and an outdoor hot water shower, new deck furniture, and landscaping in the backyard (including a Meyers lemon tree and grapefruit tree). We made another big improvement at the request of several of our guests last year. We added fencing and gates to completely enclose the backyard so pets can roam freely. We hope you enjoy all we have done.

We have had the best guests and are excited about continuing to share our home as a vacation rental that is both warm and inviting. We will make every effort to provide you with a comfortable home away from home, great service when needed, and an overall ideal vacation experience.

If you have more than 4-6 people, we are happy to work with our next door neighbor (http://www.vrbo.com/96191) to try to accommodate a larger group.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2012

                      About the owner: We are retired teachers, but still work part time. We found out about St. Simons Island by chance and fell in love with the village, beach, and people. Being originally from a rural area, we that found St. Simons gives us the same comfortable feeling of home that we hope you get the chance to experience too. We have a rescued dog who is a certified therapy dog. Buddy loves to go to schools where the children read to him. This is a very pet-friendly island. The beach is a great place for dogs and you can also bring your dog to dine with you at any restaurant with outside seating. It is in this light that we have made our home pet friendly too. We have now happily owned the cottage for a year and have had the most wonderful guests visit. We wanted to make our cottage a warm and inviting, well-equipped rental home and have been told by many that we did just that. And we have plans to make it even better each year. During your stay, please feel free to contact us any time you feel the need. We're happy to share our home and are sure you'll love St Simons Island, Cummings Lane, and our cottage for your vacation.........Art and Linda

                      Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                      We have been vacationing on St. Simons Island many years, including spending two winters as renters before purchasing this cottage. We feel so lucky to have found this home on one of the most beautiful streets on St. Simons Island. We stayed in the cottage for the first time during the winter of 2013 and are looking forward to many more winters here. We know you will love it as much as we do.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      Since we live here for four months ourselves, our home is sure to have all the comforts you would need. The kitchen is fully stocked with quality appliances, dishes, etc. The master bedroom has its own bathroom, but if you check out the floor plan (last item in the group of photos) you can see that the second bedroom can be considered to have its own private bathroom as well. That bathroom, just off the dining area, is within the alcove entrance to the second bedroom. The outer door of the alcove can be closed off at night creating another private bedroom/bathroom master suite. This makes the home ideal for one or two couples or for families with children. There is a dining area that seats four plus, another dining area in the screened porch, and a patio dining set for four on the new back deck. The living room has two comfortable couches, a flat screen TV, and many family games and books. The front porch is my favorite spot with a great porch railing at the perfect height for putting your feet up while sipping a glass of wine. Enjoy!
