About The Owner

We have been coming to St. Simons for our summer vacation every year for the past 10 years. We finally decided in 2011 to buy a house so we could come more often. And we have! My kids love the beach and the island with the quiet neighborhood for riding bikes, miniature golf most of the year, and their favorite ice cream at ZuZu's. We hope you'll come enjoy the magic of this great little beach town and bring your family and friends too.

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Guestbook comments from the owner

We arrived on Sept 21 unsure of what to expect. When we walked in the front door we were overwhelmed with all the amenities! We didn't have to bring anything but our clothes. They have everything we needed to just start enjoying our vacation. To the owner of the home, you have made this vacation experience the most memorable one we have ever had! To anyone wondering if they should choose this path or choose a hotel, I can guarantee that you will be more then satisfied with this vacation home. You will never find the comfort, privacy and amenities at any hotel. I highly recommend this house to anyone looking to stay on St. Simons Island and feel like they actually live there!

A charming cottage with a comfortable and delightful decor and first rate appliances that work.

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I spent a month in Tides Cottage and enjoyed every minute of it. When visiting friends joined us they, too, shared their enthusiasm noting the owners' obvious care in selecting furnishings and appliances. The neighborhood was serenely quiet, the neighbors just friendly enough and the morning dog walkers past the house cheerful.

When I mistakenly left behind a rather large pile of clothes, the owner thoughtfully texted me promptly complete with a photo of the items.

Easy walk to several good restaurants. Thank you Amy for the use of your house. Thank You to property manager Ann. Easy check in and Out. We hope to make many returns to this wonderful home.

Perfect, clean getaway cottage close to everything!!!

  • 5 of 5

Every February my 3 best friends and I take a girls trip and head south near a beach. This was our first stay in Georgia and we absolutely loved this house and this location!! You are only a couple of blocks from the beach and can also walk to quite a few great restaurants, a small liquor/wine store, and shops down by the pier. The house is adorably decorated and amazingly clean and comfortable. It is also well stocked with plenty of linens including beach towels. Beachcomber BBQ was fantastic and a very short walk away. Great restaurants close to pier were Palmers (fantastic breakfast) and Georgia Sea Grill for great dinner. Amy was fantastic and responded to any question we had - very helpful. Loved Loved Loved this house and we are already planning to return again next year!!! Thank you Amy!!!

Spacious, clean, comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

My six family members that spanned three generations all enjoyed our three day stay at this house. My sister and my favorite part was the upstairs floor that had two bedrooms, a den, kitchen, and bathroom. We felt like we had a little privacy, as the upstairs floor seems to have been built as a separate apartment. The downstairs kitchen and dining room was spacious. We had large breakfasts every day for all six of us. The house is a ten minute walk away from the beach. We rented three movies OnDemand on the TV and left a check for the cost on the dining room table when we left. This was very convenient for my family because we didn't have to drive to the nearest Red Box to pick out a DVD. It was the perfect little getaway for us. Thanks Amy!

Beautiful beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful way to spend a couple of days away from the hectic everyday life. The house is beautiful and a short walk to the beach. Also within walking distance of several very nice eating venues and shops! A very peaceful neighborhood to have a relaxing stay. I plan on returning in the very near future!

Home Sweet Beach Home

  • 5 of 5

Each of my family members, when they arrived at the house in St. Simonds, loved it at first sight and they continued to exclaim and admire various features as the days passed. The decor was a visual treat that spoke of the beach location we were there to enjoy. We were within walking distance to the public beach and to shops, restaurants and the liquor store. There are plenty of historical sites to drive to from the house as well as the town of St. Simonds with its pier and lighthouse. There was lots of space to park all 4 of our cars and the yard included a shady place to sit and enjoy the night air. An outdoor shower was useful for cooling us off when we returned from the beach. The beds were comfy and clean as were the bathrooms and kitchen. We fixed several meals in the well appointed kitchen. The house was accessible to my husband who has some mobility issues with only two steps up to the back porch entrance. I spoke with the owner by email and phone prior to the visit and all questions were answered to my satisfaction. Clear directions for entering and leaving the house were posted at the house. I cannot think of one negative we experienced in our stay at this house and feel that it helped my family and me create a very special beach trip memory. I would definitely recommend this property to friends.
