About the property

Coastal Cottage, 2 Bedrooms , 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

There are many wonderful VRBO properties in beautiful St. Marys. By now you probably have checked out the many vacation properties listed on the St. Marys VRBO site. Here are a few things that set our property apart from other local properties.

- Value – With 2 private bedrooms and a large family room, couples or families can vacation at a very affordable price.

- Pet Friendly – Greenhouse Cottage is a pup/pet friendly property and we welcome your four-legged family member. Our pup, Regis, is by our side when we travel. So, when we updated Green House Cottage we included a large private fenced secure courtyard for you and your pup. Your pup deserves a vacation too rather than spending the day inside.

- More Value - With a fully equipped kitchen and outdoor grill you can choose to “dine in” with your family and friends perhaps making your vacation more affordable.

The quaintness of historic downtown St. Marys surrounds you when you stay at Green House Cottage. The waterfront is only a few blocks away with a peaceful waterfront park. Restaurants and coffee shops are nearby as well. Enjoy walks down streets that date back to the 1700's. On Saturday mornings, stroll down to the waterfront between 9 AM and 1 PM and buy goodies at the outdoor market. On certain holidays, come enjoy local festival at its best. A ferry ride to beautiful Cumberland Island is both picturesque and educational. Tickets can be purchased at the waterfront. Be sure to make you reservations well before you arrive. Here is the Internet site you can visit

And, if you are bringing your boat you will find two launching ramps nearby and ample on-site parking at Green House Cottage.

You will have the comforts of home right at your fingertips at Greenhouse Cottage. Roomy living area and kitchen are centrally located inside the Cottage, with two small/cozy bedrooms off to each side of the living area. Wireless internet, 46' HD TV and Blu Ray DVD,

Kitchen is well equipped with free-standing stove/microwave, dishwasher, and refrigerator. All your cooking needs are provided, including cookware, serve ware, dishes and flatware and a charcoal grill. Coffee maker and Kuerig and blender are also provided. Stackable washer/dryer.

The living area has comfortable seating with HD flat screen television. All floors are ceramic tiled. A bedroom located at the front of the house has two twin beds, while the back bedroom has a pillow top queen bed. The bathroom is equipped with shower only.

As you venture out the rear door to the Cottage, you will find an enclosed courtyard with deck and walkway. Enjoy your morning coffee while relaxing in the private outdoor area, or maybe a nice meal and a little sun as well. And, if your four-legged friend joins you he or she will enjoy a secure fully fenced environment.


Green House Cottage is a place you will want to visit again and again. We look forward to seeing you soon.

The green house cottage was ideal for our needs. Very clean and well equiped woth everything we needed. The location was great, close to everything in St. Mary's. Communication with the owner was easy and timely. Would definitely recommend this cottage.

Relaxing vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

This home has the perfect location close to town. It was great to have the bicycles to take to town so we didn't even need to drive for most of the weekend. Hoping to get to Cumberland Island on the next trip!

Well maintained, Great Location for shopping in St Mary, Perfect for pets, short distance to SubBase

  • 5 of 5

What a quaint little cottage and town!!!!!! We and our two furry's attended a Submarine Veterans reunion. The Cottage was just what we needed. It is local to St Marys Historic district for shopping, walking, and dining. It is only a short distance from the SubBase and this provided us with the right balance of doing re-union activities and a little free time to explore. The riverside area of the town was impacted by Irma, but they are committed to recovering quickly. It is very beautiful with the live oaks overhanging the streets. Since we are up and down the coast frequently, we intend to come back here and spend some more time focused on Cumberland Island and downtown. For SubVets who have never been here, see the Submarine Museum downtown and introduce yourself to the curator, Sonarman Chief Keith Post. He will make you feel at home. Tom the Cottage owner is very easy to get along with and answered all of our questions immediately via text. Highly Recommended!!!!!!.......and we will be back.

Cozy cottage is the definition of peace and relaxation.

  • 5 of 5

We recently rented the Green Cottage and experienced a rejuvenated 3 days! We have fur babies and brought them with us which made it perfect.

The setup was thoughtful with automatic lighting in the side yard and at front door so we were never in the dark. The side yard was comfortable and each evening we sat under the large cantilever patio umbrella and listened to night sounds. We rode the bicycles available on site to the downtown area and enjoyed visiting the local shops. The Historical homes are beautiful. The town is quaint with interesting history including plaques to educate visitors about St.Marys colorful past.

The house is up to date with electronics. The television has a converter box and we accessed Netflix from our subscription. Our favorite place to eat was St. Mary’s Seafood. Get the platter for two and you won’t go away hungry! A real draw for us is the close proximity to Cumberland Island. It is literally a 10 minute walk to the ferry. Sadly, we weren’t able to visit Cumberland Island due to Hurricane Irma damage.

But we plan to return often and hope to see Cumberland Island during our next trip.

If you’re looking for a quiet, relaxing, calm, peaceful vacation spot, get your reservation at the Green Cottage. It’s a little slice of heaven.

Perfect location for Cumberland Island & the BEST for furkids!!!

  • 5 of 5

The rental is in a great location if you want to see Cumberland Island National Seashore & downtown St. Marys which is small but adorable. It was on our bucket list to see the park, but sadly the park was closed due to Hurricane Irma damage while we were there. We still had a nice relaxing stay. The cottage is exactly as pictured. They thought of everything you could need even doggie bowls & towels! The yard was so perfect for our little furkids - now we are spoiled & will never be able to stay in a hotel when we travel with our dogs 😂 Only issue was the shower is pretty small - like a cruise ship shower - my husband is 6'8" so he was touching all sides haha Otherwise it was wonderful & perfect and we will definitely stay here again if in St. Marys. Thank you for letting us stay!

Cute cottage

  • 5 of 5

Very nice space with good amenities. The bathroom is a little small, but was definitely adequate for our needs. We loved the outdoor patio space; unfortunately, it rained for most of our trip, so we didn't get to sit outside as much as we would have liked. The owners thought of every detail. Bikes. Beach chairs. Magazines. Even the Winn Dixie discount card on the side of the fridge. We will visit again.
