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."

• Bedroom Two: queen bed, full bath with modern shower/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.

Quaint Victorian Cottage
A wonderful Victorian Cottage located in the hub of the Village. We could walk to the shops local attractions and restaurants. The Cottage was nicely furnished in Period Furniture, Great Front Porch, comfy Feather beds, lots of towels and a loaded Kitchen .
The Island is Beautiful with Huge trees covered with moss and Vines, I was waiting for Tarzan to swing out of the trees. Lots to do and see. We stayed a week, Yes we would go again.
a vacation gem!
We spent a wonderful week at this beach house. Our family enjoyed all of its cozy features. We sat on the front porch and felt the breeze from the water and played games in the family room. The location was ideal. Close to restaurants, the pier and beautiful beaches. The well-equipped kitchen made cooking a breeze. We have many fond memories from our stay and would love to go back. Thanks for giving us a vacation to remember!

Our visit to this cottage was wonderful. Very clean throughout! Kitchen was stocked with EVERYTHING you could possibly need........the bedrooms were very nice and comfortable...for the ladies! We are all under 5'5......however our husbands who are 6'4, 6'1 and 6'0 could have been more comfortable in a bigger bed. The beds were very comfortable however. Over all it was a wonderful...we could walk to everything. The location is perfect. Loved the front porch where we would sit with a glass of wine in the evening. We had our two yorkies and a small lab....the also loved the fenced in area. Would recommend this to anyone with pets, small children ....
Thanks so much for the lovely review! We would love to have you all again! Bed size... I totally , completely understand...My husband Jerry is 6" 4' as well, and would love a king--- but because of the nature of the historic home with cottage sized rooms, I have not yet figured out how to get a king sized bed in there yet--- only as big as a queen... but I will continue to try and come up with a creative solution-- I really have been trying to figure that out:>) Thanks again and please come visit us again soon!
***UPDATE 10/09/2015-- We have figured out how to get a king in the back yellow bedroom! Yeah! Since it is an historic cottage, the rest of the rooms just aren't large enough for a king, but for all out there who need it - like my 6'4" husband- we do now have a king!:>)
BEST HOUSE I HAVE EVER BEEN IN AND I AM VERY PICKY
This house is amazing!! I have never been more at home and more relaxed in a house when on vacation. This house has everything you could possibly need or want. Super Clean!! Big Plus!! Has its own private parking spots- super convenient. Close to everything- we parked our car and walked everywhere the entire week. Enjoyed front porch and people watching. I cannot tell you enough how special this house really is. I have already claimed it for July 4th 2106. Thanks to the owners who are extremely wonderful people to work with. I give this beautiful place a 10+ rating.
True Southern Hospitality
Location, location, location!! This is a classic Southern beach house, big and beautiful, clean and comfortable. Not fussy, so you can relax without worrying but so cozy and charming. Bedrooms are each with their own bathroom and TV if you like. Each room is decorated with a different personality, and all so pretty. Linens are beautiful and even feather bed toppers so you will sleep like an angel...such comfortable pillows, yesssss, I said comfortable pillows!! There is even an original claw footed tub in the prettiest mint green bathroom. Every need is thought of and it's all very easy to navigate as Carol has labeled everything so that you can easily find what you need. Special soaps and lotions even a dental kit just in case you forgot yours; spa robes provided. The front porch is a classic Southern porch with loungers, rockers and ceiling fans to keep the no-see-'ems away and one side is screened so you can eat your lunch or dinner out there if you like. It is all in good repair and is exactly like the pictures that you see here, (no unhappy surprises), you can book with confidence. If you should need anything Carol is easily reached, but I found that once I settled in, it was all layed out so beautifully that it was like my own home, verrry easy place to be.
I loved this place and so did my dogs who became superstars in the village. Walking along the shore every morning and evening and being a part of everything that makes St.Simons the crown jewel of the Golden Isles. Absolutely hated to leave, but we will definately be back and recommend Beachview House to everyone I know.
Thanks so much for your kind words ! We loved having you as a guest and can't wait for you to return!
Quaint cottage in an AWESOME location
I rented the Beachview House for the month of February 2015. I had never been to St. Simons Island and wanted a break from Minnesota's brutal winter. The island and the cottage turned out to be perfect for us. The cottage is located just one block from the beach, pier and village main street. It's right across the street from the visitor center and a small park. We brought our golden retriever, and he was in seventh heaven sitting at the top of the cottage's steps watching the comings and goings. We loved daily long walks on the spectacular beaches, especially East Beach. Since we were there in the winter, we could take our golden retriever along on these walks. There were lots of great restaurants within walking distance, including our favorite, the Half Shell, which is only 1/2 block away. The cottage was the perfect nest for us. It was cozy and comfy. We had some cool weather while there and loved being able to turn on the electric fireplace in the living room. The TV had cable and Netflix. There was a DVD player with tons of DVDs to choose from. The kitchen was stocked with everything you could possibly want including a food processor! The owner was terrific. If I had a question, I got an immediate response. We had guests throughout the month, and they all raved about the great job I had done finding this rental.
The house is located in the heart of the St. Simons Island village area. You are within easy walking distance of many shops, restaurants, Neptune Park, Community Pool, Historic Lighthouse and Museum, Saint Simons Pier, Coastal Georgia Historical Society, Public Library, Visitor Center, etc. Just look at photo #2 in this listing!
