Guestbook comments from the manager

I had the pleasure of staying at the cottage with my daughter, son-in-law and grand kids recently. The location is perfect! An easy walk to the beach and down to Goulds Inlet. We rode the bikes provided at the house to the marsh, the Beachcomber Grill near the King and Prince for lunch and 5th of May at the pier for breakfast- all within a 2 mile ride. The house itself was so nicely laid out and all on one level (great for my knee replacement recovery). The master suite was private and light filled. Bunk room sleeping 6 but still roomy and the 3rd bedroom has it's own bath and king bed! A lovely cottage decor makes it just the right beach experience!

Pictures Misleading

  • 3 of 5

The pictures make the property look nicer than it really is. It's an older home that has been renovated to rent. The furnishings were average. However, it was clean and in a great location. It was a block from the beach and very close to the village and other key locations on the island.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful house! We are a family of 6 and the house was perfect for us. There are plenty of sitting areas to spread out for reading, board games, etc. Everything was very clean-sheets, towels, etc. The beds are comfortable and the entire house is very well stocked with everything you might possibly need. We will definitely be back!

What a gem!

  • 5 of 5

This place blew us away! While it's beautifully decorated and stocked beyond what you find in a typical rental, the proximity to the beach makes this house shine. We went over the long Columbus Day weekend in October with our two young boys and dog and going to and from the beach was a breeze. Our kids loved riding their bikes to the beach, which is totally not necessary because the walk is so short, but they loved the freedom of the private, safe street. The weather was gorgeous and there was so much to do. We rode bikes to eat and just to explore. We fished, crabbed, swam, collected shells and played tons of games. The owners took great care to make their home comfortable: it's clean and in great condition, the kitchen is well equipped, the beds are SO comfortable and there is tons of space. We would love to come back in the summer, especially since we hear the owners are looking into putting in a new pool!

Cute and Spacious Cottage in the PERFECT Location

  • 5 of 5

I've been going to St Simons for over 30 years and have to say this cottage is one of the best locations on the island. It is perfectly situated one block from the beach, 2 blocks from beautiful and historic Bloody Marsh (sunsets, wildlife), and 4 blocks from Gould's Inlet (fishing, crabbing). Unlike many of the other homes in East Beach, you don't have to trudge through half a mile of dunes to get to the beach and because it is on the beach side of Bruce Dr, there's no road to cross. The pathway to the beach at the end of 12th leads you right to prime sand, complete with tidal pools that our kids spent the entire weekend playing in. The Pier and Village - with putt putt course and community pool - are reachable by bike trail (bikes provided by the homeowners), by street-legal golf cart (which you can rent on the island), or by car; CrabShack, CrabDaddy's and Beachcomber restaurants are even closer.

The best part is the cottage itself - it has a huge master and guest room (each with king bed and lots of light), 6 beds in the kids room (with tv/dvd), a nice big hdtv in the living room, a screened in porch, and a cute galley kitchen complete with a stainless fridge! The owners have a nice sense of style - the house is decorated 'beachy' and is comfortable, but also nice (and feels very 'new' and clean). Unlike homes you can get through the rental agencies, this cottage includes amenities like beach towels and koozies. We had a great stay and hope to have the opportunity to come back again soon.
