Overview

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 can provide all your needs for a fun-filled, relaxing vacation at the beach. Unpack and GO! Be sure to click on more details and you can reach out to me. 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! Contact Nancy Berlin, owner at 770-454-9730 or ssiabednego at yahoo dot com, for reservation confirmation. You'll love Hope Harbour as much as I do.

About Nancy Berlin

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. Contact owner at ssiabednego (at) yahoo (dot) com to confirm reservations.

Nancy Berlin purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Nancy Berlin chose Coastal

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.

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The cutest cottage ever! Nicely furnished, comfortable furniture and beds. The walk in closet in master bedroom was wonderful. Loved the sunroom and large back deck with very private yard. Nancy was great to work with throughout the booking process and stay.

We love our Georgia Haven

  • 5 of 5

Once again we spent a month in Georgia. We walked to the beach, village and all around the neighborhood. Every year we discover new places. This year was shrimp in Darrien, library book sale in Brunswick, and the tree carvings around the island. Then back to our wonderful home away from home. Nancy is a great host! We will return next year!

Great, relaxing property

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time at Hope Harbour while in town for a legal conference. Great location and amenities. Our stay was the week after Hurricane Matthew (October, 2016) and the storm debris had already been cleared from the property, in spite of being scattered every where else on the island. The fenced back yard was perfect for our 2 Labrador retrievers and the outdoor shower was a lifesaver. I would highly recommend Hope Harbour to anyone looking for a relaxing, spacious, and dog friendly rental on SSI.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking a chance after the hurricane. We worked hard to make sure all debris was cleared even tho' we couldn't completely repair the porch roof. But no leaks at least. Thank you being a guest at Hope Harbour and hope to see you again.

Hope Harbour

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for almost the entire month of January. We enjoyed our stay and Nancy is very good to work with. If any problems arise just contact her and she will take care of it. This was our second stay at Hope Harbour and we really enjoyed it. Since my wife cannot walk the distance to the beach or downtown area we have to drive but it is just a couple minute drive. The island has a lot to offer and this is a nice quiet and cozy place to stay.

Map

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.
