About the Property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2)

Perfect island cottage for a single or a couple seeking a get-away retreat. This is my second home and it is fully stocked with linens, kitchenware, beach gear, and everything you need to feel at home. It was remodeled and refurnished in 2014. The cottage is situated in a charming residential neighborhood within walking distance to grocery store, movie theaters, and unique shops. The beach, village, and galleries are a bike ride away. Artists, naturalists, writers, foodies, sailors, golfers, fishermen, beach bums...this is paradise.

Ideally, I prefer to rent for a 3-month minimum. At $1400/month, this is a bargain. (Taxes/security fees are not included in this price.) Contact me if interested. Please….No smokers, no pets, no peanuts.

The Cottage:
1 BR/1 BA

The Island:

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1980

About the owner: I currently live in the village on another island---Greenwich Village, Manhattan. I taught elementary school in GA for 27 years. I now teach at New York University. Today my work as a professor, literacy consultant, and author enables me to fulfill my lifelong commitment to helping kids become successful readers. I return to my cozy retreat and the warmth of my beloved island friends as often as possible.

Why the Owner Chose Saint Simons Island, GA, USA:
I lived in the Tabby Cottage from 1980-1997. I bought the cottage in 1980 from Sam Roberts, the owner and builder of the cottage. Then and now, Sam's masonry craftsmanship is evident throughout the home. Few homes today are as well-constructed. The tabby floors and stone exterior reflect the island's history. The home is embraced by the neighborhood's live oaks and Spanish moss. Turning into my street is immediately transporting. Going to sleep to the lullaby of crickets and cicadas and waking up to the singing birds lets me know that I am home.
