About the Property

Cottage - 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, (sleeps 7)

Once you turn down this oak-canopied lane, you begin to experience true St. Simons living. Walk in the Cottage and your mood will immediately relax and you'll be on 'Island Time'. Hope Harbour (renamed 8/1/13 and formerly Abednego Cottage 313992), can provide all your needs for a fun-filled, relaxing vacation at the beach. Unpack and GO! The Cottage is located in the much sought-after south end of the Island and is just a 10-min walk from the ocean/beach - you can walk or bike there or choose to do the Village and Pier instead. The Cottage is lovingly decorated with antiques from around the world, has vaulted ceilings, fans in every room and authentic linoleum tiled floors throughout. Relax in the sunroom, read in the screened-in front porch or kick back on the deck. The deck has plenty of seating, tables for dining, and is located in a private fenced backyard. The deck is low to the ground and does have ramps for wheel chair accessibility. Bicycles and beach chairs are available for your use, as well as beach umbrellas and a beach cart. Just bring your beach towel and you're all set. Charcoal and gas grills on the deck.

Hope Harbour Cottage is a single level Cottage and is suitable for an active family, seniors wanting the quiet and ease of a retreat or love birds needing a private hideaway. Fido will love the backyard! You'll love Hope Harbour as much as I do.

Car: Not Necessary

St. Simons Historical Lighthouse tours, Mallory Street (ice cream shops, art galleries, bait shack). Very eclectic funky Village is a favorite. Walk to beach, playground & skateboard park; beautiful community pool and mini golf oceanside; historical churches & award-wining restaurants. Beautiful shops and bargain seekers delight...antiquing that will take your breath away. Check Chamber of Commerce website to see latest events - always something going on on SSI. Excursions: Sapelo Island (experience the old Gullah community of Hog Hammock), Jekll Island's Millionaire's Row, Little St. Simons Nature preserve, Cumberland Island's wild horses...much, much more. Historical Savannah is one hour away - JAX, Fla. one hour other way. So many sites close to SSI - take day trips and come back to Hope Harbour Cottage to relax and savor your adventures.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: I have been coming to St. Simons for almost 20 years now and knew I would want to one day, retire on the Island. There is a small town feel to SSI that is unsurpassed and after living in the hard-charging corporate world the majority of my life, collecting sea shells on the beach was pretty attractive. I love the history of the Island and the myriad of stories you will hear from the 'old timers'. I love being able to bike just about everywhere and the friendliness of the Island people. SSI felt like home to me and I keep coming back year-after-year.

Why the Owner Chose Saint Simons Island, GA, USA:
When I walked into Abednego Cottage in 2012 (now called Hope Harbour Cottage as of 8/1/13), it 'spoke' to me. I knew that this Cottage would, one day, be my home. The backyard is unsurpassed. The deck is huge and has plenty of room for separate areas. I wanted to share Hope Harbour's serenity with you. I hope you will treat it as you would your own home.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The shaded backyard and huge deck is, by far, my favourite place. There is absolutely nothing more important than spending a little 'Island Time' on the deck and watching a sunrise or sunset. You'll love the flow of the Cottage - very easy living.
