Other St. Simons Island Properties cottage description
The house is located on a beautiful tree canopied street, a bike ride away from shopping, restaurants, and the beach. The cottage is fully furnished with a 'shabby chic' at the beach style. There is a large screened porch in front, with a swing and rocker to kick back and relax with a good book.
A three-hundred-fifty-year-old live oak tree grows out of the wooden deck within the fenced in backyard.It is a perfect spot for early morning coffee and birdwatching. In the master bedroom, you can sleep like a baby on the wonderful Select Comfort mattress, plus enjoy the view of the backyard in your own private sitting room. We even provide a bookcase full of books to enjoy on your visit.
The second bedroom is furnished with two twin-beds equally as comfortable. As an extra bonus, the owner used to own a restaurant, Blackwater Grill, at Redfern Village, and will be happy to provide you with two complimentary five dollar coupons. Just unpack your luggage and start to enjoy our marvelous 'island' lifestyle!Also, ask about our condo in Saint Augustine!!

Charming cottage with all the necessities! Owners lovely and provided everything we needed. Great screened porch with a great swing. Property was close to everything. We loved our first visit to the island!

My husband and I stayed at this quaint cottage along with my mother-in-law. It was a one level cottage with a cute front screened in porch and a back deck. We like to be outside a lot at our location unlike a motel room can provide you. It was, therefore, perfect for us to enjoy the cottage outside and INSIDE ! It was so well-decorated and comfortable and we really enjoyed the kitchen, and extra bonus sitting room off of one of the bedrooms. In addition, the owners were delightful and friendly and easy to get along with. We loved the location to as it is near East Beach and The Pier which is a lively place for shopping and dining. We hope to go back very soon and often.

The house is close to everything that counts-the beach, the village, excellent restaurants. We had plenty of room; it was clean, and the backyard was WONDERFUL because we brought the dog along! I would visit this house again!

Our Second Visit
Our Second Visit
We love St. Simons Island and The Peach House and have been disappointed in the past when the home was already booked and we had to stay in other locations. We found the home to be spacious, clean and thoughtfully decorated, and love having a porch and yard! And what a bonus that bikes are provided! The owners are friendly and knowledgeable about the area, and their restaurant (Blackwater Grill) once again provided the best dinner of our stay. We will be back!

All contact with the owners had to be initiated by us. They did not commnuicate having received our deposit, payment, check in/out procedures, etc. Books left in the cottage contain comments from past tenants talking about how accomodating and friendly the owners were. This we don't understand as they never even came by to introduce themselves or see if there was anything we needed. When we contacted them once about a problem with the WiFi the man told us his wife handles that and that we'd have to call back. The cottage is dilapidated and in sore need of maintenance and repair. The rear of the cottage is a converted porch and ceilings were not raised to a legal height. Anyone over 5' will be unable to stand upright, raise their arms above their head or shower comfortably. The floors are uneven and shake as you walk across them. There are window coverings only in the bedrooms so privacy is lacking. The owners live next door and each night turned on their flood lights (which face the bedrooms) illuminating the bedrooms (bright enough to read a newspaper) until ~2AM. The owners claim the bed is a Select Comfort, however it is nothing more than an air bed and unbelievably horrendous to sleep on. Having slept on one before we looked forward to this, but found no evidence anywhere of the manufacturer. The furniture and accessories are badly soiled and smell of wet dogs. The cottage is rife with insects such as spiders (everywhere), roaches (all over the kitchen), etc. There are cobwebs, spider webs, and general dirt everywhere so we are bewildered as to what the additional hefty cleaning fee is being used for. The back door does not lock - it can be yanked open with a tug so security is an issue here as well. The backyard is not private: it faces several other properties that all look down into it. The owners stated in their description that they offered a beverage and appetizer at their restaurant to tenants. We were given only two $5 coupons to be used towards an entree only. Based on the condition of the property we were not inclined to eat at their establishment, the Blackwater Grill. We'd never return to this property or recommend it to anyone. Ever. There are many other lovely places to stay that are well kept and worth the $$$. Try Bennie's Red Barn for dinner, don't miss East Beach at sunset, and go to City Market in Brunswick over the causeway for seafood (they supply all the area restaurants and their prices are wonderful!).

Owner response: This review is incorrect in almost all aspects,and seems to have been sent solely to be hurtful.Rubycreek actually saw fit to also criticize our restaurant, which they never even visited. Our pictures speak for themselves, and previous reviews received since 2004 certainly dispute Rubycreek's complaints.We have actually redone the floors in the kitchen and bathroom since the pictures were taken and prior to Rubycreek's visit. Rubycreek expressed in an e-mail that they were looking forward to "get away and feel human again". This e-mail was answererd 15 minutes later with information about the cottage. Upon receiving payment, we immediately mailed a confirmation and a signed contract as we always do. We did not feel that Rubycreek needed or wanted us to to bother them with visits and questions.I personally don't want to hang with owners when I rent a place, but would certainly have called them if I was as upset as Rubycreek's review indicated. Rhonda waved to the man twice and received waves in return - never did we hear of any dissatisfaction until this horrible review was posted for the world to read. I'm confident that future renters will be as satisfied at our cottage as the hundreds of previous renters that preceeded and followed Rubycreek have been. John and Rhonda Howton - owners

My husband and I spent a week at this lovely cootage last week. It was the perfect location. We loved the bikes and the home had everything we needed. Having just listed my own beach house on VRBO in NC, I got some great ideas for my own rentals. We especially enjoyed the front porch. I would highly recommend this home for a vacation getaway or extended stay. Thanks so much!

We stayed a month. Owners next door were friendly and helpful. I would recommend the fish store on Demere. We biked over nearly every day to pick up fish for dinner. The bed was soooo comfortable

Our family had a wedding on the island this past March, 2008. The house allowed us extra space to accomadate everyone in the family on the same street. It was so conveniently located! Also, the Blackwater Grill definately has the best food on the island and is child friendly. Even my 7 year old son had fun coloring and chatting up our waitress Gloria. I would definately come again!!!

My family and I stayed here at this lovely cottage in June. We needed a break so bad & it was just perfect. The children loved it and we loved it. I loved the fact theat we were so close to the beach. It is bike riding distance.
