About Carolyn Morgan ***Email is preferred method of contact!***

We bought this house in December 2009 because we fell in love with the cottage look & feel. (We've been told by multiple people it was featured in Cottage Living or Southern Living but we have yet to see the article!) Our house has a wonderful front porch that we tend to gravitate to every morning. The location on East Beach sealed the deal because we knew it was a family oriented neighborhood with its own beach, which is the best on St. Simons Island. The feel of this house is reminiscent of how going to the beach used to be - laid back and easygoing. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Why Carolyn Morgan ***Email is preferred method of contact!*** chose St Simons Island

This property is great because it mixes the old with the new. The old being the main house, which is full of cottage charm. And the new being the guesthouse, which has a large den (20' x 25') and a large bedroom & full bathroom. A lot of guests like to use this space as the 2nd master. The downstairs part of the guesthouse is a converted garage that now houses a ping pong table and foosball table, and has plenty of space for your bikes, beach chairs, strollers, wagons, etc. Storage space is definitely not a problem here.

This is a charming, well maintained home with all the ammenties you could ask for.

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled with the home and guest house. The living space was good with a number of sleeping options to include the guest house. It accommodated our 3 families of 6 adults and 5 children. Loved the "gathering" spaces of the front porch, the screened in porch and large garage converted to a play area with ping pong and shuffle board Also great for indoor bike storage, beach carts and strollers.

We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage in saint simons. The house is laid out perfectly. Loved the front porch and screened in porch! Nice size rooms in the main house and the apartment above the garage was perfect for a small family (with a new baby so they had quiet for nap times). The house was also very well furnished and comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped! The host was very helpful and quick to respond!

Overall we really enjoyed our visit and would definitely stay again.

Perfect house for our family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We traveled across the country to stay at this house with our kids, two sets of grandparents, and my sister and brother-in-law. Sounds chaotic, but this house--with all bedrooms having their own bathrooms, and with the separate space over the garage where the kids could be loud away from the older folks--made it work great! The house was clean, updated, and well-stocked for a vacation at the beach. We especially loved the screened-in porch, where people who got up early could drink coffee and enjoy the quiet neighborhood but have protection from the mosquitoes. The huge laundry room is also nice, as it provided a convenient place to store supplies, clean beach towels, etc.

The beach here is fabulous--clean, not too busy, and an easy walk from the house.

I would stay at this house again, and I would recommend it to anyone!

Nearest Airport
10 Miles
Brunswick, GA

Some of the major nearby attractions are: East Beach (walk out the front door & walk @ 300 yards to the 6th St beach access), the pier & village, shopping at Redfern Village, golfing, boating, riding your bike along the bike paths, Fort Frederica, and tons more. Other than the beach, one of our favorite spots is the pier & village area, which is located about 2 miles away. They have great restaurants, shops, miniature golf, playgrounds, library, live theater, and a new pool with slides and all sorts of great features. They also have lots of rocking chairs and benches to enjoy the beautiful view from. Please ask about this in your inquiry...I'd love to send you more information about this. It is VERY nice for children of all ages! There are sidewalks all the way from our home to the makes for a great day with the family!
