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. Harmonious.
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 Demere Park
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.

A wonderful Christmas
We spent Christmas weekend here and had a wonderful time. The cottage is in an amazing location; close to the beach, the Village...all within biking or walking distance. The neighborhood was quiet. Nancy had set up a small Christmas tree for us and decorated the cottage. It was really beautiful.
Nancy's communication with us was excellent and timely. We're already looking at the upcoming year to take a trip back.
Hi Susan. I'm so glad you enjoyed your Christmas vacation at Hope Habour and I'm glad you like the little Christmas Tree. It's not big but it does create a more festive atmosphere. I do hope you consider Hope Habour again this year. The summers are awesome! Thank you for staying at Hope Harbour.
What a beautiful cottage! Clean and cozy! Amazing !
We couldn’t have asked for a more relaxing weekend. The cottage is central to everything. Cozy and clean. Comfy and spacious. The porches are amazing. I walked in and said” I could live here forever”. I will stay here every time I come to St. Simons! The owner is great, helpful and generous.
The best place for you and your pet to stay.
We enjoyed our stay and found Hope Harbor to be a place to relax and still have our dog with us. After all the fenced back yard was like she had her own dog park, she does not have a fenced yard at home. More than once did we find her relaxing on the deck. We enjoyed the deck as well, sitting and just enjoying the day. The carport is a nice feature to keep the leaves off our vehicle and when it rained one morning it was nice to slip into our vehicle without getting soaked. The kitchen was well stocked and we had a great area to warm up left overs, because you want to check out as many local restaurants as possible. If you like to cook you would have had all you need to make what ever you could dream up. The village was conveniently located and the shops were dog friendly and plenty of outdoor dining. We highly recommend a stay at Hope Harbor as a place to relax and recharge.
A perfect place to stay for a great vacation!
Hope Harbour was a perfect place to stay for our St. Simon’s vacation! Nancy made it very welcoming and had everything we needed to truly make it our “home away from home” while visiting the island. The location of the cottage was just perfect, a nice neighborhood close to everything. The cottage itself, from the bedrooms to the living area to the screened-in porches, was very comfortable and helped us relax from the moment we first walked in. The very large deck and nice fenced in yard became a favorite for morning coffee outside with the dogs. We look forward to staying there again!
Relaxing and comfortable.
As soon as we walked through the door all the stress melted away. The house smelled amazing and was cool and comfortable. The deck is my favorite place! Beds were great and everything you could ever need for a beach trip was there. SO thankful for a weekend at the beach!
We were very pleased with Hope Harbour. It is a great cottage and the amenities were very good.
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.
