Property description

CONTACT OWNER: If you use the 'send email' form on this website, your request may not reach us in a timely manner (delays are sometimes 6 hours, or more). If you don't mind that delay, that is OK, but for faster service, call the owner at 1-603-524-4000, or send an email to 'vrbo at idyllrentals dot com' (changing 'at/dot' to their symbols). Both methods reach the owner's smartphone.

INSTANT QUOTE: The "Get an instant quote" on this site is NOT accurate. Please contact the owner (paragraph above) for an accurate price quotation.

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION: Located directly in the village, you can walk to everything -- the pier, restaurants, shops, etc -- including the new ocean-front public water pool and water park (see photo #2 for birds eye view of location).

THE HOUSE: So, just what kind of a house is it? Well, this is the e-mail I received from the guest from April of 2015: "I am so excited that I can hardly stand it. I have traveled all over the world. To exotic places. And never ever have I been as pleased or felt more excited than I did today pulling into your lovely beach cottage. You have poured your heart and soul into this place and it shows. Perfect everything.“ "The house was absolutely wonderful - all of us loved it and hated to leave! From the porches to the wall decorations (you could be there years before examining them all!) to the well-appointed kitchen and the fenced in yard, it was perfect."

• Living Room: sleep sofa (queen size) with full bath (shower+tub)
• Bedroom Two: queen bed, full bath with modern shower/tub
• Bedroom Three: king bed; full bath with shower
• Bedroom Four: double bed; full bath with antique original claw foot tub

HISTORICAL: Beachview House was built in 1892 on Cumberland Island as three cottages. In 1923, it was floated down the Atlantic and reassembled in its present location as one cottage -- back then it was called the Gramling Cottage after the family that owned it the 1920's. By the time it was started to be restored, it was so overgrown, that many folks didn't even know there was a cottage on the property. It is blessed with a fabulous location - less than a block to the water and yet being INCREDIBLY close to town, in the middle of everything - The house retains much of its historic charm - original hardwood flooring - great beadboard walls - even the original claw foot tub! It is furnished with many comfortable antiques and high quality upholstery - but it is designed to be a place to put your feet up and relax to the pace of life that is St. Simons Island.

NOTE: The VRBO calendar is sadly buggy and despite our repeated attempts to work out the bugs with VRBO support, the calendar is not always 100% accurate. Please write or call to confirm dates. Thanks!
