Come enjoy this elegant honeymoon cottage surrounded by ancient live oaks just steps from the beach and a short walk to the pier and village. Sip cocktails or coffee on your private porch surrounded by the branches of the magestic live oaks with the ocean breezes. This tree top cottage is an excellent bird watching perch- hummingbirds, woodpeckers, and songbirds. Walk down the beach to the village for excellent dining, shopping, and concerts in the oceanfront park. This cottage offers fabulous sunsets and a quiet private location only blocks from the hub of the island. This one bedroom cottage features a private porch nestled in the trees, a great room with vaulted ceiling, full kitchen, dining area with additional dining available on the porch. This beach cottage is modern yet built with the charming character of the old St. Simons beach cottages in mind. The large bedroom has a king size bed and a large bathroom with a walk in shower. This beach cottage is full of windows allowing the natural light and the views of the beautiful moss-draped live oaks. The cottage is owned by a family of local artists who have been island residents for generations. The cottage is full of their stunning original paintings. The tree-lined drive ends in a grassy lawn before the ocean. This romantic retreat has great cell service but is a television and Wi-Fi free zone. We hope that will add to your peaceful, unplugged respite. Owner is a licensed real estate professional.

About Melanie Barger
It has been a blessing to me to grow up on St. Simons Island and now to rear my own children here. Surrounded by the ocean, marshes, rivers, moss-draped live oaks, a day does not pass where I am not in awe of the beauty around me. I am an artist by nature and education and a licensed real estate professional by trade.
Melanie Barger purchased this House in 2017
Why Melanie Barger chose King City
This honeymoon beach cottage is located in my favorite part of this beautiful island. The tidal beach here is the most secluded on the island. The sunsets are beautiful. If the tide is low, you can walk down the beach to the west at sunset and see and hear the bagpipers playing at Sea Island's Lodge. If the tide is high, you can watch the sunset from the grassy common area and enjoy the refreshing breezes. The beach cottage is a short walk up the beach or through a tree-lined neighborhood from the the heart of the island with village, pier, lighthouse, parks, restaurants, festivals, concerts, and shops. Although the cottage is close to the activity, it is tucked away on a side avenue by the ocean and surrounded by moss-draped live oaks. I love bird-watching from the front porch while enjoying morning coffee. Some of my fondest memories of my childhood and that of my children have been enjoyed on the beach and beachfront lawns of this part of the island. This part of the island has a rich history of hospitality, I am thrilled to be able to share this special place with others.
What makes this House unique
The location is tops and so is the privacy. The cottage itself is elegant, charming, and spacious for a couple. The front porch is delightful. The high ceilings and many windows are a plus. Fresh flowers, coffee set-up, and a couple of bikes for cruising the island will make your get-away at this honeymoon beach cottage even better.

It was everything we hoped for. Just the right size for a couple to stay in.
It was very close to the pier area but just far away enough to have quiet and privacy. LOVED the ability to go down each evening with chairs and sit by the ocean with a bottle of wine and enjoy the sunsets.
Nice, clean, perfect weekend getaway.
Property had everything you need, the area is beautiful. Village is 5 minutes away perfect for couples.
We absolutely loved our stay. Great location and very clean. One of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in.
Great Location! Wonderful cottage for 2!
We had a lovely time at this comfortable ,quiet cottage. The porch was wonderful for outdoor dining or coffee, with a slight view of the water. The location was within walking distance to Pier Village which has cute shops, great restaurants, the Lighthouse and pier. At low tide, you can even walk down to the village. The Townie bikes provided were great! We biked around the extensive bike paths around the island, which is just beautiful with the live oaks and spanish moss. The cottage was just as pictured and was neat and clean. The cottage is perfect for two people. I would suggest two things to make it more comfortable, a dresser so you don't have to live out of a suitcase, and a hamper for dirty towels. The owners were easy to communicate with and responsive to make the reservation, but did not send arrival information in advance. However, they were quick to respond to our email once we were on the island and realized we didn't know how to get in. My only complaint was the information on VRBO is not consistent regarding check out times. It said 11:00 on several emails prominently at the top, but said 10:00 on one email buried in a link. The cleaning service raised the garage door at 9:50 and came to the door at 10:00 to clean as were packing up to leave at 11. We hurriedly finished to get out of their way. I would recommend this property, and hope we're lucky enough to return to this beautiful island.
Beautiful area, beautiful home
My wife and I enjoyed our week in St. Simons so much. The laid back feel and proximity to downtown area was perfect. The home was cozy and clean and perfect for two! We definitely want to come back and stay again!
The house was perfect!
Enjoyed our stay in St Simons Island. The house is just a couple of blocks to town. Walking to dinner each night was great!
