This luxury beach cottage has been beautifully decorated and is one of the most recently built rental homes in Coast Cottages, the finest vacation neighborhood on St. Simons Island, GA.

Oleander Cottage has four bedrooms, each with its own full bath, and sleeps 10 in perfect comfort. Quality furnishings pamper you in every room, from the separate den (a great place for the kids to play Xbox or watch movies) to the ultra spacious living/dining/kitchen level.

Oleander is loaded with electronics with flat screen TVs in each bedroom, the living room and the den! You'll love the high ceilings, dark pine floors and plantation shutters throughout. And there are balconies galore, including a fabulous roof top deck with ocean views!

The gourmet kitchen is open to the living and dining areas so everyone can gather in one space. Yet there are plenty of porches, decks and other spaces when it's time to sneak away and read a good book.

Oleander guests enjoy full privileges at Coast Cottages' fabulous beach front pools and pavilion. The neighborhood sits front and center on St. Simons Island's magnificent Coast Guard beach, the widest stretch of sand on the island. This is a place where you can walk the beach at high tide, low tide, any tide! (Note: vacation rentals south of Arnold Road cannot make this claim.)

If you're ready to treat yourself to a very special vacation experience, Oleander Cottage is waiting for you!

Guestbook comments from the manager

This is our 4th visit to SSI and our first at Oleander Cottage. What a delight we were in for, the outside was so inviting but when we walked into the house it was just like we were home. Clean from top to bottom and so well decorated. Our favorite place was outside on the deck with the comfortable sofa and chairs. Naps were taken, morning coffee, evening dinners at the table and nighttime star watching. Thank you for this opportunity to stay at your wonderful home. We enjoy it all. Patrick was there in a flash when we had a little issue with the outdoor grill and had it fixed for us to use. A wonderful vacation for us, our adult children and grandchildren who all voted to come back to this home. A big plus was the elevator to use with the luggage and food items coming and going and proved to be helpful. Thanks again

Excellent location, above average home

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to SSI. We LOVED it! The island is very private and not overrun with tourists/franchise chains. Located on East Beach, this is prime real estate for SSI beaches. Walking/biking distance to Pier Village. The island has plenty of safe bike paths. The beach at low tide is apx. 300 yards from boardwalk to water; 200 yards at high tide. Pools are adequate but could have been more enjoyable if they were bigger in size due to the number of guests using them (I'm being knit-picky here).

The home is very nice and equipped with good amenities. The ice maker is a bonus and helps keep the coolers full. Furniture is the only negative. The quality/comfort is average, but, hey, it's a rental. I get it. Plenty of dishes/pots/pans/utensils/appliances/towels. But if you like to cook, bring your good pans/knives ;)

The location of the home with respect to the pool pavilion is an easy walk. If comparing other Coast Cottage homes, consider the parking arrangements. Some of the homes only offer parallel parking, which can be tricky for some, especially with large SUV's. Oleander home has head-in parking which is great.

We found the area very easy to get around. Plenty of options with regards to restaurants, grocery, shops, pharmacies etc. Nearly all of the restaurants are locally owned/operated. While they're smaller in size, they make up for it in quality and value of the meal. We never had a bad meal.

The property manager was great to work with! He was easily accessible, responded to emails, gave good recommendations of the area and greeted us shortly after arrival to ensure a successful stay.

Overall, this was a great place and SSI is a wonderful area. We will definitely consider Coast Cottages when we book next time.

The perfect house!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying in the Oleander Cottage and we loved every minute of it. There was plenty of room for our families. I love that there is a separate area where the boys could play video games and watch tv. The deck was perfect for morning coffee and afternoon cocktails. The property manager Patrick was super helpful when we had a small issue with the door. We cannot wait to come back next year!

From the minute we walked into this luxurious home, our stress melted away. The "cottage" is appointed perfectly, there was not a thing we needed that the owners had not already thought of. We had two families, with 3 teenage boys, two couples and a grandma, and everyone had their own room and their own bathroom! The elevator made it perfect for loading and unloading, and helped with an older housemate. This home was great for morning coffee on the sun drenched deck, watching the sunrise or sunset on the widow's walk, enjoying group meals indoors or out doors. The kitchen is fabulous for bringing people together for greta meals. Being only a few steps to the pool or beach made it easy for everyone to come and go in this warm paradise. The management company checking in regularly to make sure we didn't need anything, which was very nice. The community is contained enough for our teens to walk around safely and neighbors were all very friendly. There is plenty to do in the area, weather you have a car or want to walk/ride a bike. The only thing we didn't like, was leaving! Can't wait to return.

Spacious Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This home is really not a cottage -- with 4 bedrooms, each with it own bath, a downstairs & upstairs living area, plus huge kitchen, dining inside & out on the deck, 4 decks, outdoor grill & shower, plus elevator -- it's perfect !!! Not to mention being only steps away from the 2 pools, sunning deck, & private boardwalk to beach!! It just doesn't get any better!

This eastern part of St Simon's Island has a beach at all tides, with tidewater pools for the kids, & with several top notch restaurants within walking / biking distance, you really don't need a car. Unless the nearby shops are calling your name!!

The management company is nearby & constantly checking to make sure that everything is clean & ready for your relaxing visit, so book now & rest assured that this will be one of your favorite vacation spots!!
