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!

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family had a wonderful week at Floataway. House was super clean, well laid out so every family could have some private space and super organized with everything we needed. Paul was a delight to work with - answering questions and quickly solving minor problems that arose.

My family, stayed here for 4 days and it was absolutely wonderful. It is located near the beach but you never want to leave the house. The views and breeze from the rooftop terrace are mesmerizing! We have stayed at several VRBO properties all over the Southern US and the Caribbean and I can honestly say we've never had a kitchen so stocked and organized. Every dish, utensil, small appliance and big appliance is at your fingetips.

The bathrooms in every bedroom and on every floor were spa like! The two master suites on the top floor along with a parlor like room separating them were fantastic for hanging out in PJ's and drinking coffee without having to go down to the kitchen. The elevator was in great working condition (you don't always find this to be true in some rentals)

The pool was very refreshing and relaxing.

The decor was right out of Coastal Living magazine. I wanted to take everything home with me.

I could go on and on about this property. There was plenty of parking and we absolutely had everything we needed for our stay on beautiful St. Simon's Island. I would encourage you to book this place and expect to fall in love. We will definitely be back.

One last thing... Paul was wonderful to work with. Everything he lists is spot on. He answers all emails promptly and made sure our stay was everything we wanted it to be and more!!
