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!

We were a little worried with the hurricane that came through but everything was perfect. This has an incredible deck that looks directly at the ocean with easy access. The house is very cute with many books to read if you have forgotten yours. I would recommend this property to everyone. We hope to come back again soon!

A place where time stood still!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough how much I enjoyed our stay at Happy Sleep! If you are looking for a pristine, modern place, then just keep looking because this is not the place for you. But, if you like beadboard walls, eclectic furnishings and all things old school, you have found your island home! We so enjoyed swinging on the back deck, enjoying the beautiful ocean and watching the waves, people, dogs and birds, along with a few boats. The stars were amazing and I did see a falling star. We could easily walk to restaurants, the pier, the lighthouse and little shops. We had so much fun!

Perfect beach cottage...perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely amazing time at Happy Sleep in St. Simons. The beach cottage was the perfect size for our family of three. The back porch is great for relaxing and offers a perfect view of the beach and ocean. We enjoyed breakfast and evening drinks on the porch every day. The location can't be beat with the beach literally steps away from the cottage! We had great weather and spent every day at the beach. We will definitely be back to stay at Happy Sleep again next year!

Fabulous sisters vacation

  • 4 of 5

The four of us were very comfortable in the little cottage. We loved the retro decor, it was like walking into a Mary Alice Monroe or Dorothy Benton Frank novel!! The covered deck was perfect. We definitely will return.

Cool beachfront cabin

  • 4 of 5

The little cabin that could. Stuck between the condos is a piece of old florida. Very artstic beach attire inside. Nice place directly on the ocean. Very clean inside and everything works.

Everything you need, and nothing that you don't!

  • 5 of 5

We were in a state of bliss sitting out on the back porch every night watching the moon rise and listening to high tide roll in. This cottage is a gem!
