About the Property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

'We've had a relaxing week in these excellent accommodations. The Carriage House lived up to the claims for bird watching. One highlight was watching an Osprey catching a fish and circling the deck four times.'

'The Carriage House is a perfect home away from home.'

'It is such a nice, romantic place to come.'

'My family and I had a wonderful week here on Saint Simons Island thanks in part to your fabulous carriage house. The setting was serene and the decor made us feel right at home.'

'This is a perfect place to kayak and I hope to be back.'

'It helped to have this cozy cottage to call home while we looked for a permanent home on Saint Simons Island.'

These are just some of the recent notes we received from our guests. Even though they have probably told you all you really need to know, let us share a bit more about the greatest hidden gem on the Island.

This charming and spacious carriage house overlooks a serenely beautiful saltwater tidal lagoon. It was built to be used as the owners' personal guest house and is not your ordinary rental. It is located on a quiet street in an established neighborhood. Relax in its airy, high-ceiling rooms and on the deck where you can enjoy watching many species of wading birds or sit on the private dock on the lagoon and watch the sun go down.


Our carriage house is on Wesley Oak Circle on Saint Simons Island. Everything on the island is easily accessible from here. We are five minutes by car to the public beach entrance at the historic Coast Guard Station museum and new bathhouse facilities. You can walk on the beach for miles at mid to low tide from there. The Village, located by the ocean, is about seven minutes from the carriage house by car. Here you'll find many shops, restaurants, the lighthouse and museum, and the boardwalk and fishing pier. We have a water park by the lighthouse: Neptune Park Fun Zone.

Saint Simons is bike friendly with trails and paths. There are bike rentals available at several businesses and bike shops.

Many historic sites are close by, such as: Bloody Marsh Battle Site on Demere Road; Saint Simons Island Lighthouse, where you can climb to the top to have a really good view of Saint Simons and the nearby islands; old slave dwellings at Gascoigne Bluff. If you're looking for beauty and serenity, you'll want to visit the beautiful and historic Christ Church and the Fort Frederica National Monument on North Frederica Road.

Saint Simons has many beautiful, large live oak trees that line the roadways. These trees' ancestors were the very trees used to build the famous 'Old Ironsides' warship. The oak timbers were milled on Gascoigne Bluff.

There are many golf courses nearby as well as tennis courts. Good kayak 'put-in' sites are easily accessible.

The views of the marshes and rivers are spectacular and, of course, the Atlantic Ocean is RIGHT here!

To get a good sense about the history of Saint Simons, there is a very interesting trilogy of books by the late Eugenia Price. They are historically accurate and beautifully written. You might be interested in obtaining at least the first book of the three. It's called 'Lighthouse' and the books can all be purchased through Amazon.

Whether for a few days, a week, a month or a complete season, our Wesley Oak carriage house is the perfect island getaway!

Please note that this property has a flight of stairs to reach the carriage house.
