About The Owner

We have always loved coming to St. Simons to visit family and have dreamed of owning a home here. In the spring 2010 we stumbled upon a little cottage that needed help. After months of renovations and collecting furniture we moved in! It has become a retreat from our crazy everyday lives. Jim's Grandmother, Nannie, used to look around at a family gathering and say, 'Look, we're making memories.' We hope to spend many happy years 'Making Memories' here. We hope to to share it with others as well.

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why The Owner chose Coastal

We have always loved the simplicity of this sweet island, the ablity to walk to the beach, ride bikes, eat wonderful seafood and just hang out.

Mold and mildew

  • 2 of 5

The house was adorable. It is centrally located and we were able to walk downtown and to the beach. It was tastefully decorated and the beds were comfortable. Unfortunately, I noticed the smell before we even opened the door: mold and mildew. People with mold sensitivity beware.

Owner's Response: I'm so sorry! I wish you had told us. Since we do not live on the island we are not there and do not know of problems unless someone alerts us. Mildew is a problem with beach properties, especially ones that were built in the 1940s. I will send the house manager/cleaning crew today to remedy the situation. Again, we are so sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us.

The cottage was a perfect beach getaway! The decorating was incredible and it was very clean!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the cottage and loved the island. We took a trolley tour, went to eat at the local delicious restaurants and spent plenty of time at the beach and walking around. Although downtown was about a mile away, there are a few restaurants and a great restaurant at the King and Prince within a quick walk. The kitchen was great, living room was comfortable and the beds were comfortable. The owner was great to work with and quick to respond. We would definitely recommend this property and may visit there again ourselves!

Perfect vacation home for a small family

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 3 loved this house. It's a quick hop to the beach and some of the best island dining, plus a 10-minute bike ride (if that!) to the village. The kitchen is well-provisioned, as are the bathrooms. The furniture and beds are comfortable and cozy. When we noticed some minor issues, the host was very responsive. We will stay here again!

Cute cottage with plenty of space in great location

  • 5 of 5

We booked our stay for a week at the Making Memories Cottage from August 6-August 13, 2016. My boyfriend and I brought my teenage son and his friend and selected the cottage based on the location and property description. It was our first time on the island and at 7 days we had plenty to do and see.

Check in and out was a breeze and all went smoothly. The location was great. 5 minutes to the beach and close to town and there was plenty of parking in front. We were able to get around the island easily and it definitely felt safe giving the boys some freedom to come and go.

The cottage was adorable - clean and well maintained and lovingly remodeled in the style of Fixer Upper (my fave). The beds were comfortable and we had plenty of space. The kitchen was well stocked and everything was easy to find. You can tell the owners take great care of this property.

It would be perfect for 2 families as it has 2 queen beds and essentially bunk space for 4 kids. Plus there was a cute sunroom where they could play. My boys hooked up their PS4 and were away from everyone else, which was great. And the front porch swing was awesome to watch folks ride by on their bikes.

Recommendations: Southern Soul BBQ, Crabdaddy's (right down the street), Del Sur (for a great Argentinian steak) and Sandcastle Cafe for breakfast. We enjoyed the trolley tour on our first full day to get a lay of the land and it was only 2 hours so a perfect morning activity. We also loved the day trip to Little St. Simons island (book in advance as its only one day a week) The boys LOVED charter fishing with Captain Greg at Georgia Charter Fishing. They caught some sharks and thought that was the best thing ever! We also went to Jekyll Island for the day and loved Great Dunes Beach, the Turtle Sanctuary and photo opportunities at Driftwood Beach (a must see!). We went to East Beach several times and also to the beach next to the King and Prince (closest to property). The pier and village was fun for people watching, shopping and enjoying the restaurants.

I would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking to come to the island and would happily stay there again.

Perfect relaxing stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house because it was clean, was a perfect location and decorated very nicely. Loved how the house was able to expand with having bunk beds but still had the small house feel. We would definitely recommend it and will be back again :)
