The house and neighborhood are charming!

  • 5 of 5

We had a 3-generations family gathering at the cottage and enjoyed it thoroughly! I'd highly recommend Bell Ringer Cottage for family gatherings. The balcony and deck let us really enjoy the ambiance of the quaint street. The pools and boardwalk to the beach are very close and everything is well maintained.

Served three families very well

  • 5 of 5

This house is very clean, close to the pool and ocean. The floor plan may seem unusual, but one level dedicated to the common living/kitchen made it large and most enjoyable. The elevator can be very handy, just make sure its safety cissors gates are closed and all the doors are securely closed (2nd floor door safety contact was touchy). Manager was always very responsive and attentive to our needs.

Wonderful! Great Management, perfect location, and adorable neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED the Bell Ringer Cottage. It was perfect for our two families (with two boys and three teen daughters). The rooftop view was amazing. You can also see the ocean from the master balcony. The neighborhood was adorable with the brick street, common pool, and cute cottages. The neighborhood, grounds, and pool were very clean and well kept. We paid extra to have the pool heated and it was well worth the money. The house was furnished with everything we needed, including beach chairs, beach towels, beach toys, laundry detergent, soap, paper towels, plenty of dishes, and even some spices. We had more than enough room to spread out, yet had a great living room/kitchen area to gather and play cards. The beach at this location was so large and pretty. At night, you can see the light from the light house, the sand crabs on the beach, and lots of stars. We walked several times to the pier which was a decent walk there and back, but you do have to watch the fluctuation of the tide, especially near the pier. The beach is under water near the pier during high tide. I was amazed at how much the tides affected the size of the beaches. At times, the beach near the Bell Ringer was the largest beach I had ever seen. I would highly recommend St. Simons Island and this cottage. Would also recommend a trip over to Driftwood Beach on Jekyll Island and a trip on the Lady Jane Shrimp Boat.

Bell Ringer Cottage is a winner!

  • 5 of 5

Bell Ringer Cottage turned out to be the perfect spot for our 3-generational "girls week"! It was comfortably furnished, and spacious enough to allow for togetherness or solo times as desired. The unit was well maintained, and we enjoyed all aspects: the several balconies, large kitchen area (the big table was great for our game nights!), and of course the roof top aerie. Proximity to the beach was just right, and it was a conveniently short jaunt to shops, eateries, historic sites (Christ Church is a must-see!) and we thoroughly enjoyed Jekyll Island one day. Would we return to Bell Ringer? Absolutely!!

Fabulous Beach Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family just enjoyed a fabulous week at the Bell Ringer Beach Cottage. The location is perfect and so close to the beach. Also a wonderful location for riding your bikes into town or taking long walks. The street is very picturesque and lined with beautiful beach homes. We had our adult children with us and they were all impressed with the home. So many decks to enjoy...especially the rooftop views of the ocean. The home is quite large, decorated beautifully and very clean. Everyone voted to return again next summer!

St. Simons Island has been a popular vacation destination since Native Americans shared the rich bounty of these island hundreds of years ago. They were here when Oglethorpe arrived from England to settle Georgia as the 13th colony in 1733. Today the landscape looks much the same, with moss-draped oaks, shady lanes and creek-fed pockets of marsh - a thriving habitat for birds and a diverse range of other wildlife, from turtles to armadillo and deer.

The soul of this island is timeless, heartfelt, graceful, spiritual and history enriches every view. Best-selling author Eugenia Price wrote all of her historical novels here, her words emanating from this deep-felt sense of time and place.

Take a walk in the park where soft winds blow fresh from the sea. Generations have stood where you stand, watching for ships on the horizon while dolphins play in the surf and pelicans dive for dinner.
