We enjoyed our stay here. The house is clean. The yard was very overgrown and in need of maintenance. There was no instructions about the WiFi or the password. Also the master bed is very noisy. It squeaks with every move you make. That being said, it is a very nice, cute house in a great location. We enjoyed staying there.
beautiful home. perfect for our stay. place was clean, very roomy and comfortable. we would stay here again.
Cottage was great. Communication horrible.
This cottage was great, but communication with Annita (Sapelo Island Birdhouses) or Jerome (On-site Manager) was nonexistent! Thank God I had the access code with me. There was NO information packet as was told there would be. Therefore, no WI-FI. Phone calls were not returned or mailboxes were full and couldn’t leave a message. Emails were returned with error messages. The interior of the cottage was great, but the lawn was not maintained and grass was knee high. The cottage was 87 degrees inside when we arrived. We left for a few hours just to escape the heat.
This cottage has the potential to be a great getaway. It is a very nice cottage and I would definitely stay here again under different management. If this was my rental I would definitely want to know how my renters were treated.
Thanksgiving stay to visit daughter and her family nearby
We stayed here to share Thanksgiving with our daughter living in Midway,GA about 30 mins away. The unit was exactly like pictured - a light-filled and roomy cottage that we filled with four adults, two active children and one baby. The local manager, Mr. Dixon, was very amenable and helpful whenever I had questions. It was clean and offered various board games (and Twister) for those rainy days that come on every vacation! The local people in the community were so friendly to us, giving us helpful local information from day one. Hunter's Café offers really good local seafood and other lunches and dinners at moderate prices. Debbie, the owner, and her staff were so friendly to us, even with us bringing 6 adults, five children and two babies to eat there! Darien, one of our favorite historical towns, is only a half hour drive from the cottage. Be sure to stop at the docks down the street and say Hi to the friendly new lady-owner, Tommy!
It was great!
The owners were very nice! Called and checked up on us several times!! The house had everything we needed.
Perfect vacation cottage for our first family vacation!
I recently decided to take my wife and young children to the beach, and I needed a good home base while exploring the Georgia coast with my young family. My son is less than a year old and my daughter is two, and I knew this wouldn't be the kind of beach trip I was used to.
I wanted to avoid a cramped hotel, and I still wanted an affordable and safe place for my family to stay. I decided that a house/cottage rental would be appropriate. I found this cottage on VRBO, and contacted the owners who were very friendly and helpful. They had no problems with me bringing my babies down to the cottage, and they also informed me that a brand new A/C unit was being installed on my arrival date. I was a little hesitant about going to a rental on the coast with no A/C, but they assured me that it would be done by the time we arrived.
It's only about a 4-5 hour drive from north Atlanta, and we arrived at a beautiful, clean, and very cool air-conditioned cottage! The floor plan was very spacious and my little ones had a good time running around and circles and crawling on the floor! We all loved the shady screened in porch under the old oaks covered in Spanish moss.
We made daily trips down to Jekyll island on highway 17. It's a very scenic and peaceful drive up and down the coast, and after long days on the beach with the little ones- it was such a relief to have such a comfortable place to return to. The kitchen is massive, and we were able to have nice dinners together in the evenings.
I would recommend this cottage to anyone looking for some real rest and relaxation. Also, anyone looking for a nice getaway with the family, even with small children- this is the place to be. Very safe, very modern, and very comfortable. The property manager and the owners were super helpful throughout our stay. We will be back! No doubt. Thank you for helping us have a fantastic first family vacation!

Thank you so much for choosing the Captain's Cottage for your first family vacation. Sounds like everyone had a great time. And, I'm happy to hear it was comfortable .... and cool, when you arrived.
We look forward to your next visit and soon the children will be old enough for fishing, shrimping and crabbing along the bluff.
