Great weekend getaway!
This was a wonderful, beautiful, super clean beach themed apartment. It was perfect for our weekend getaway. After a long day exploring Cumberland Island, it was the perfect spot to rest and relax. I wish we had been able to stay longer. Thank you Wendy for letting us be your weekend guests!
After 24 hours of traveling in airports, Wendy and Michael greeted us like family. The home was relaxing, beautifully maintained and had tons of extras that we not expected. Thank you for making our stay special.
Best cottage ever!!!
We travel often and stay in VRBOs almost exclusively and Pelican’s Perch might be the nicest one yet. Beautiful, comfortable, well-appointed and quiet cottage with the most beautiful gardens you’ve ever seen! Available to us were very nice bikes and a golf cart, which we drove to dinner every evening. I’d stay here again in a heartbeat (or move in permanently!!). A little piece of my heart will always be in St. Mary’s. Thank you, Wendy and Mike, for your hospitality!
Dear Julie and Steve, what a nice compliment! Thank you for choosing the Perch. I get a great amount of satisfaction when guests are happy and enjoy a quiet and restful vacation. I miss them when they leave and only hope they return in the future. You both are always welcome, Wendy.
Wonderful and Relaxing Weekend!
My husband and I wanted to get away for a few days to celebrate our Anniversary and I was so fortunate to find Wendys and Michaels beautiful cottage! We had such a relaxing time and our hosts were so very nice. They have thought of everything and there were so many special touches from fresh flowers to chocolates and a sweet goody basket for our Anniversary. Make sure you take some time and do some exploring with the golf cart they provide! We look forward to visiting again! Thank you so much for sharing your comfy and sweet cottage! Derry and Debbie Boyd.
The photos do not do the property justice. We felt like we were staying in a cottage right out of a magazine. Wendy and Michael are great hosts and made sure we had everything we needed for a true getaway. One of the nicest properties we have rented! Two thumbs up!
Thank you Roxanne and we are so happy you enjoyed your stay. You were great guests and we would love to see you both again! Wendy
Charming Cottage Apartment
We had a wonderful stay at Pelican's Perch in beautiful St. Marys GA. It was one of several stopping points for us on a long trip between Ohio, Florida, and SC. Wendy was so gracious and helpful, even providing a bit of cream for our morning coffee! The apartment was lovely and well appointed. It had everything you could need for a comfortable stay. Even the outside area was beautiful, with seating on a nice patio area that overlooked the gardens. We enjoyed the short walk into town, but there was also a golf cart available for the trip if needed. The town is small and quaint, with several choices for dining and sightseeing. We did not make it to Cumberland Island on this visit, but hope to do so on our next trip through the area. Highly recommend these accommodations!
