Cute & Cozy Getaway on Tidal Creek & Marsh

Minimum Stay 2 nights

Overview

About the property

I think you will like my place! Its decorated like a beach house located in a tropical paradise, with over 30 large palm trees, & lots of bananna trees in the summer. You may see various wildlife that live along the creek bank. Im close to restaurants, nightlife, Historic sights, hospital, shopping & FLETC (<5min). St Simons Island is about 15 minutes away & Jekyll Island about 25 minutes. Airport nearby! Booking is set for minimum 2 nights, but ask if you see a night empty between bookings!

The unit is about the size of a 2 car garage, about 700 sq ft. Its a nice "simple" casual place. You have CH&A, small apartment size stove/oven, full size refrigerator, microwave, coffee pot, toaster oven, dishes, pots, pans, silver, can opener, george foreman, starter coffee, tea, sugar ect & I think all the basics you need. The bed is queen size, and the blue jean couch is comfortable. Its located on a tidal creek thats about 5' @ high tide & 0' @ low tide. I have caught fish off the bank before, & you can bring & launch your kayak...but it's not "easy", & dont get stranded when the tide goes out! There's 3 fold up sport chairs, small & med sized coolers, 3 well worn beach towels & a beach umbrella in the closet, or let me know if theres other things you may need like a beach cart ect & I'll see if I can have it available for you when you get here.....Guests are only allowed in the breezeway connecting the unit to my house where I have a patio table & 2 chairs & a charcoal grill, the hammock gazebo area next to the creek, the area immediately behind the unit w/table, chairs & umbrella & in the unit itself. Any other part of the property is off limits & my private area. I am self employed & my hours are unpredictable. If you want to meet just let me know, otherwise I'll try to check in on you after you check in or via text but will try not to bother you. Theres a electronic lock on the front door & you'll be provided a code, usually the morning of check in date. Please text me when you get here and when you leave. Hopefully we can get together while your here, otherwise Im available by phone or text from 10 am till 9 pm, unless its a emergency. We'll play it by ear & see what works with both of us! The neighborhood is a older established neighborhood with huge moss covered oaks & long winding roads. Its usually pretty quiet, BUT there can be the usual noise because humans live, work & play around here. Its a great place to walk, ride your bikes or jog. Im located about 3 minutes to the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC) front gate, and not far from the mall, hospital & islands. Theres several historic sites nearby, and lots of salt & freshwater waterways if you like boating & fishing! There's also a convenience store, Dollar General & Pizza Hut about a 1/4 mile away. Unfortunately Brunswick doesnt have a public transportation system, but there are cabs & Uber to get around. Were not a large town, so you can mostly get anywhere in 30 minutes or less, & the most populated shopping areas are less than 10 minutes away. I have a Boxer mix dog named "Bandit", aka "Mr B" who may come by for a visit. He is a very friendly brindle Boxer mix, but if you dont want his company just send him home! There may be a few cars parked in the circular drive, so parking can be tricky sometimes, & you may have to park in the yard...you'll see the space in front of the gate on left side of the house.

House manual:

FIRST: check ac/heat thermostat & make sure its on, as well as hot water switch in first closet by front door. They should be on, and if not just takes 20-30 minutes to heat up & cool down. Please wash all dishes, & please leave a note if something gets broke, used up or is missing so I can replace before next guests. Please leave bed spread folded on bed & place all kitchen towels, bath towels, bed sheets, pillow cases (any linen) in washer, & start a load with soap & a little bleach from the cabinet above. Please turn off all lights, fans ect when not in use...thank you so much!

About Schelley Stamps

Im a RE Investor, landlord & Entrepreneur. I also help folks become homeowners thru credit repair & home buying programs. I love nature, animals, live music, boating & fishing! I believe in "do unto me as you want done into you"...I am quiet, laid back, non smoker, light drinker, open & honest. I have a wonderful friendly, mostly quiet, well behaved Boxer mix dog that goes almost everywhere with me. I hope to do more traveling & have more adventures!

Why Schelley Stamps chose Country Club Estates

Ive lived here for quite a while, & in March 2017 decided to change this apt to a vacation rental instead of a long term rental. This is located next to my home, & easy to manage!

What makes this guest house unique

Close to "city & island life", but feels like its not. Less than 5 minutes to the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center (FLETC), located on a beautiful tidal creek with lots of palm trees, wildlife & natural beauty!

Very enjoyable week

  • 5 of 5

This cute studio apartment is in a great location for visits to St. Simons, Hofwyl-Broadfield historic site, and Jekyll Island. The bed was comfortable and there were multi outlet strips on either side so we could easily charge our devices. The space was well used, and included the biggest and sharpest tv I’ve ever watched (Walking Dead was awesome!) the sofa was super comfy and we loved going to the back porch for breakfast. Small serviceable kitchen area worked fine for reheating leftovers and making toast or sandwiches. The best thing ever though - in my opinion- was reading in the hammock overlooking the tidal creek. While you are there, be sure to visit Shucks- a hole in the wall that’s about 2 miles away. Best shrimp I’ve ever eaten!

We are definitely going to return so we were tempted to say bad things to keep y’all away! But the hostess was too gracious to do that. 😀?

You’ll enjoy visiting with her and her dog. Feed our squirrels for us while you’re there!

Quaint and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for a week while attending an educational conference at Epworth by the Sea. The cottage had everything one would need for an extended stay. It was very quiet and peaceful. I would definitely stay here again.

Comfortable, quiet, clean and cozy

  • 5 of 5

This was my first VRBO experience. It will not be my last. Schelley provided a comfortable, clean and well managed respite. Even though the fact that it is pet friendly was the deciding factor in choosing her place, after one visit I know that I'd book her cottage if I were solo and without the fur baby. The pictures are spot on. Hospitality is not forced. Her book of tips on local eateries and places to see was invaluable. The cottage provided everything we needed and more. The quiet and restfulness of the place is fantastic

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

Very close to our daughter, which was our main concern. Very nice place, had everything we needed, full kitchen, coffee pot, nice dishes, toaster oven, microwave, can opener, nice furniture, super comfy couch and bed, great washer and dryer, big back yard. Our host did everything possible to help feel at home. Good location in Brunswick.

Coastal Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was a home away from home. It was comfortable private as well as quiet. It came with all the comforts you need. The owner is in close proximity of the unit and is there if you need her. She's very friendly and approachable so is her dog Bandit. I would consider using this Cottage again when I visit home.
