SSI beach getaway 2017
Another wonderful family vacation at Glynn Cottage on SSI. We have stayed at Glynn Cottage 4 times over the past 4 years and always love being there. Glynn Cottage is a perfect home for our family vacations or quick visits to SSI. The home is very clean, comfortable and easily accommodates our family of five plus. Glynn Cottage is a perfect home in a wonderful, quiet location convenient to the pools, beach, marsh and village. Mealtime is a breeze whether you choose to stay home and cook in the wonderfully laid out & well stocked kitchen or visit one of the many local restaurants. The views and fabulous sun sets from the multiple decks or roof top make for a wonderful end to a great day on SSI. We look forward to our next trip to SSI and Glynn Cottage.
This home was perfect for my families needs. Plenty of space to gather as a group and also plenty of privacy available. The pools and beach a very short stroll away. The kitchen is wonderful and the cook isn't isolated from everyone else. We rented bikes, visited the lighthouse and the pier area shops all a quick drive or bike ride away from the house. The multiple decks on the house offer more opportunities for privacy.
We also did the short drive to visit Jekyll Island. This home is in a great location and lovely private neighborhood. The owner was very responsive thru out the entire process. We would not hesitate to rent this home again.
Labor Day Weekend
I would like to start by stating when I first sought interest in Glynn Cottage I was questioned by Mrs. McCoy about the number of guests that would be staying. When I mentioned the five people in my family and 4 in another family I was put off by her response to the number of guests. Even though it states in the description this house holds a maximum of 12 guests. Mrs. McCoy did not want to allow my requests for the 3 parking passes.
Less than 24 hours before our anticipated arrival to Glynn Cottage, Mrs. McCoy sent an email cancelling our reservations for the weekend. Stating she could not rent to us due to the impending weather. However, in her rental contract she would not allow her guests to cancel due to weather. We were planning a birthday weekend with our children and were very upset. We were able to find a different cottage and rent from Patrick Anderson who was very accommodating. We sent a check to Mrs. McCoy, per her request, to rent the cottage. However, we have to wait for her to return our money. So we had to rent at the last minuet another cottage and pay an extra $95. We asked Mrs. McCoy to pay the difference since she cancelled our reservations. She was unwilling to pay and spoke rudely to my husband on the phone. I would suggest for anyone thinking about renting the Glynn Cottage from Mrs. McCoy to reconsider. We go to St. Simons every year and have used VRBO on many occasions and have never been treated with so much disrespect by an owner. Call around. Talk to others renting coast cottages. I'm sure you will find a more accommodating owner with southern hospitality that you would expect when renting on St. Simons Island.
Dr Scott H, you promised us a bad review...here's our response:
We strive to offer a relaxing, peaceful and safe vacation to all our guests. GA Gov Deal had issued a State of Emergency for Hurricane Hermine in 56 counties including St Simons Island and your home area as well, the day before your arrival the next afternoon. When your children's school was cancelled due to the Hurricane, you requested yet another change wanting to arrive in the morning which is when the Hurricane was to hit. We were concerned for your safety. St Simons Island was expecting flooding and high winds....areas lost power. After several discussions with you about weather related to Hurricane Hermine and our inability to accommodate your date and time change requests, we regrettably had no choice but to cancel your reservation. We suggested substitutions but you chose a more expensive Villa when less expensive cottages were available. That was the reason we decided not to pay the extra $95 for you, Dr H. And yes, we did question why you asked for 3 parking passes when you had emailed 2 adults and 3 children were staying.
Thankfully, you were able to enjoy a wonderful vacation since other rentals were available.
Truly Special Spring Break
Our family has vacationed on St. Simon's Island for 20 years. This was the first time that we stayed at Glynn Cottage and we were delighted by the entire experience. The owners were extremely attentive, kind and detailed from beginning to end. I would strongly recommend this property to anyone searching for a Golden Isle Beach Vacation.
To share our degree of appreciation and gratitude to the owners, our daughter left her blanket at the cottage. The owners secured the blanket from the cleaning crew and plan to mail it to us. My daughter was thrilled and I am so appreciative that the owners are so committed to a personalized experience (even after you leave).
We had 12 family members on this trip and we were very comfortable in the cottage. The cottage is steps away from the beach and the pool. The entire Coastal Cottage development is immaculately maintained - clean and well organized.
We plan to return and we will always have positive lasting memories of our Spring Break 2016 experience.
This was the first time we stayed at Glynn Cottage, and it did not disappoint! It was extremely clean, spacious, and very well-maintained, with excellent furnishings. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to prepare meals during our stay. We even lucked out on the weather and found it warm enough to enjoy both the pool and the beach, despite it being spring break. And, we really enjoyed the peaceful, quiet setting of the street. We will definitely be back. Thank you for a wonderful week!
This was our family's second visit to the home and we were again very pleased at the construction,
maintenance and comfort of the property. The vast, elegant kitchen was fully equipped, coffee filters and
other basic necessities were thoughtfully provided, and the location is beyond compare. We had an incredible
view of the Milky Way from the rooftop deck, and enjoyed the private spaces within the home which let
us each have personal space. We will definitely come again.
