We (four families) had a great reunion at Floataway! The house was located within a short walking distance to a pristine beach with warm water and multiple tidepools. In addition to the beach, we enjoyed the small pool in the front of the house, as well as the outdoor shower with hot water. We also went to the local water parks in St. Simons island and Jekyll island. The house was extremely clean, and well-maintained, and Paul was wonderful to work with and extremely responsive. In addition to grilling and cooking multiple meals in the well-stocked kitchen, we also enjoyed food from Island Pho, Nancy's, Soul BBQ, and Barbara Jean's. Our school-aged children loved that they had multiple areas to play, watch TV, relax and hang out, separate from the adults. Each family enjoyed their own space as well. We hope to come back soon!

Spectacular home for an amazing family beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

This home was spectacular. My family and I all met here from various parts of the country. We were so pleased to arrive to this wonderful home. It is beautifully furnished and extremely well equipped. Each bedroom is comfortable and well appointed and complete with its own bathroom. Even though we had a large group, the layout of this home allows for everyone to have their own space and privacy. It is conveniently located to the beach and all St Simons has to offer. Paul, the owner, was extremely helpful throughout the rental process and our stay. We hope to be back again soon!

Great Place for a Multi-Generational Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, our children and their spouses, and our grandchildren (ten of us in all) found Floataway Cottage the perfect holiday spot. We enjoyed the home's location on a quiet street with a short walk to the beach and proximity to shopping and restaurants. Special highlights include: a small, salt water pool on the property; ample supplies of both bath and beach towels, beach chairs, cleaning goods, toiletries, and a sturdy cart to carry provisions to and from the beach. Large bedrooms and living areas provide space for everyone to interact together or have quiet time to themselves. Not only was the home impeccably clean (imagine a beach house without a grain of sand on the floors), but also everything in the home was clearly labeled for easy, convenient use and return. One of the greatest pleasures was a top level deck with a commanding view of both of the neighborhood and the ocean.

Floataway doesn't Disappoint

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Floataway was absolutely perfect! The pictures and descriptions are spot on with what you will find. Every room is beautifully appointed, spacious, and very comfortable, including most importantly, the mattresses and linens. Everything you need on a beach vacation is included except food and personal items. Large windows throughout the house provide fabulous light. Our group of 7, ages 25 to 70, loved our family time here!

Thank you, Paul! We couldn't have been happier with you or Floataway! See you again soon!
