About The Owner

I am a recent graduate from Georgia Tech and currently work and live in the Atlanta area. I love to play tennis and am an all around sports fan. Other than that I'm just a laid back and fun loving guy.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1945

Why The Owner chose Coastal

My grandfather built this house in the 1940s and it has stayed in our family ever since. I grew up in this house and we have just recently been renting it out the past few years.

What makes this cottage unique

You can't help but fall in love with this place. Sit out on the deck during the day and watch the massive ships or a pod of dolphins swim by. At night you can almost be assured of seeing a shooting star. It's simply impossible to be worried about anything here. Talk about the perfect get-away!


Excellent! 4.7/5 -

Cool place

  • 4 of 5

The location is excellent. The size was just right for our family of 4 adults. Plan on spending lots of time on the porch. It's right on the beach!

Classic older beach home whimsically decorated and very clean!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderfully relaxing time enjoying the great location right on the beach! So enjoyed the covered porch to sit and read and watch the tide roll in. Walked to the village every evening and enjoyed delicious fresh seafood. Thank you for a great vacation!

Great Labor Day Weekend!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I Stayed at Happy Sleep this past weekend. It was Great! The home is located right on the Beach and close enough to the Village for a pleasant walk. Though the beach is not accessible at high tide; yet it allowed for plenty of time between high tides. We have been coming to SSI for many years and now we have a new favorite place to stay!....Happy Sleep.

Perfect St. Simon's Island Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We discovered this VRBO by lucky accident and had the most wonderful week over Spring Break. The cottage is cute, comfortable, quirky and reminiscent of 'old' SSI - before the high rises took over! The cottage had a well equipped kitchen, washer/dryer, dishwasher, comfortable beds and plenty of hot water! The best part, however, was the view from the porch looking out at the Atlantic Ocean! We could not have asked for a better week or for a better rental.

It was magical

  • 5 of 5

It was a wonderful relaxing week for my wife and I. We enjoyed our walks on the beach and just the magical atmosphere of the cottage. We have decided to make this our destination for our anniversary every year. We felt it was well taken care of. We also felt it was much more than we expected. We loved it.

This is our second year staying here and we love it. It's a sweet, comfy cabin with tons of character. Is it perfect in every aspect, it was for us! Great location, great view! Yes you can only use the beach at low tide but there are tons of other houses that are the same way. Can't wait to go back!
