Hodnett Cooper Vacation Rentals and Hodnett Cooper Premier are pleased to present Shiphouse as part of our luxury portfolio of properties. Hodnett Cooper Premier properties are among the finest vacation rental residences on St. Simons Island. Hodnett Cooper Premier guests receive personalized assistance from our Premier Concierge including pre-arrival trip planning, grocery shopping, activity reservations and more.

Shiphouse 3 is the penthouse at the landmark Shiphouse. Designed to resemble the hull of a ship, Shiphouse is an exquisite oceanfront residence on St. Simons Island.

From the outdoor staircase or private elevator, guests enter the residence and are greeted with stunning ocean views to the east and four spacious bedrooms to the west. The living area features a space for dining, den and an open kitchen with gourmet appliances and island seating. The living area has 180 degree views and a wraparound balcony for enjoying the view and ocean breeze.

Each of the four bedrooms has an en suite bath. The master bedroom is spacious with a King bed and the en suite has a claw footed soaking tub. The “children’s bedroom” features two sets of bunk beds.

The penthouse features hardwood floors throughout, detailed architectural finishes and beautiful furnishings.

Above the penthouse is a rooftop deck that spans the entire footprint of the house. The deck is a wonderful gathering spot that features tables and chairs for al fresco dining, a grilling area with running water, and a sitting area to take in the Atlantic Ocean views. On the ground level, an oceanfront pool provides a refreshing spot to relax or cool off after a day on the beach. Both the rooftop deck and pool are shared with guests renting the residence on the two floors below the penthouse residence.

During winter and shoulder seasons, the residence can be rented in three configurations: the four-bedroom penthouse; the eight-bedroom residence on floors one and two; and the entire twelve-bedroom residence. During the summer months, Shiphouse requires a seven-night minimum stay with a Saturday-to-Saturday schedule only. Events that exceed the maximum occupancy are strictly prohibited. Please send an inquiry if you are looking for the entire house and we can check availability.

While this magnificent home is oceanfront, please note that beach access is tide contingent. At high tide, which occurs twice daily, the beach is mostly inaccessible. But, you won't likely miss the sand with oceanfront balconies, mesmerizing waves, ocean breezes and your own seaside pool.

Bedding: 1 King, 2 Queens, 2 sets of bunk beds (twin over double).

Maximum Occupancy: 10

Lovely with opportunity

  • 4 of 5

The facility was nice but they need upgrades to certain items/areas or to have the facility department really give the location a revamp to really make the location shine. The pool area could really be a relaxing sanctuary for visitors with the beach right at your feet. The roof is the gem of the whole stay with views that were amazing. I made recommendations to Hodnett Cooper to make the experience for future visitors better. I will make another visit to see if they took my recommendations seriously and I'll keep you posted.

Feels just like you are on a cruise ship!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home, Our family of 9 all stayed on the top Pent House 3rd floor.

Hodnett Cooper Rentals did an excellent job of making sure we had everything we needed to enhance our stay. They met us at the home, gave us a walk thru, went over places to eat, things to see and do while on our stay. As we toured the home, standing in the family area looking out at the ocean, looks just like you are standing on the rear of a cruise ship looking out.. it's an amazing view. The beds were comfortable. Everything we needed was provided, towels, linens, etc. *One only thing I would suggest changing is the TVs. There is a family room TV, Master Bedroom TV, and a TV in the bunk bed room. But not in the other 2 queen bedrooms. I need a TV to fall asleep so I like TVs in all rooms. But we stayed in the master so it wasn't an issue. This is a great home and I would recommend it to anyone.

It's definitely a 5 star stay!!!

St. Simons Island was named 'America's Favorite Beach Town' in a May, 2014 Travel + Leisure readers' poll for our 'triple threat of southern charm, serenity and affordability.'

St. Simons Island is a quiet beach town with a population of 13,000. The Island is not overcrowded or overdeveloped, but there is still plenty to do—from fishing to shopping to dining to biking to sightseeing to relaxing on the beach. There is as much or as little to do as you like.
