Overview

About the property

2 small bedrooms, 1 bath with private, large pet freindly courtyard.

The Cottage on Norris, Unit 'B' is our third VRBO property in St Marys. You will find our first St. Marys rental property listed in VRBO (Listing #460117) as 'The Green House Cottage'...a few blocks from this property. This unit, what we call Unit 'B' is the back unit of this 2-unit property. The Cottages on Norris have been updated affording our guests with a clean and well equipped vacation rental. We are always committed to providing a tastefully decorated 'home away from home' for our valued guests.

The Cottage on Norris, Unit 'B' is in the Historic District of St. Marys and only a few blocks from the centerpiece of St. Marys, the Gilman Waterfront Park just next to the National Park Service office where you board the ferry to venture to beautiful Cumberland Island. We suggest you visit:

to become familiar with our beautiful island and to make reservations for the ferry ride to the island.

Indeed, VRBO Reviews are Very Important!!!

Tom & Beverly Cyphers are seasoned VRBO property owners with what we feel is a very responsible and favorable track record supported by many 5 star traveler reviews. Before you consider booking the Cottage on Norris we encourage you to visit our other VRBO properties - listing numbers 460117 and 411610 - and read the reviews. We think the reviews speak volumes of our efforts to be great hosts for our wonderful guests. We pride ourselves is being very clear as to the size, condition and amenities you will find when you arrive. The photos introduce you to both the interior and exterior of this, Unit 'B', property. My wife is a photographer and used her wide-angle lens to take the photos of the property. Using the wide-angle lens affords the opportunity to give you great pictures of the cottage. But, the lens coupled with our use of mirrors in the cottage would lead the viewer of the cottage to believe that the cottage is larger than it actually is. Simply put, the cottage is a very comfortable and cozy 640 square foot unit.

We know that cleanliness is extremely important to folks renting VRBO properties. Like our other VRBO properties, we place as a number one priority that you will find this unit to meet our rigid standards. Finally, a VRBO is in effect a home. Accordingly, our VRBO units are well stocked with just about every thing you will need to make the unit 'your home away from home' throughout your stay.

What makes this cottage unique

We think that one of the unique benefits is the large private gated courtyard. Simply, a place for you to relax and a safe and secure place if you have a four-legged friend that will be joining you.

Perfect, cozy cottage all within biking distance to water and historic St. Mary's

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Cottages on Norris- Unit B. There is a boat ramp right around the corner which was AWESOME and unexpected! We rode our bikes to the historic section of town which is right on the waterfront. A beautiful park with a play area was perfect for our young children. The cottage was clean and our host Tom was very easy to communicate with before our stay! We liked Unit B over Unit A because of a locking gate to keep all of our stuff safe (not that we were concerned of safety at all). We also appreciate the neighbor across the street letting us park our boat on his lot. The girls are going to miss "Bugsy"! We will definitely be staying here again in the future!

Better than expected!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Tom's cottage. We had our small dogs with us this time, and the fenced in courtyard was a Godsend! Everything we could have needed was thought of and available to us. The cottage was very roomy and comfortable. We can't wait to go back.

Perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has stayed at a handful of rentals and by far this one was the most thoughtful! Family of 4 with a dog and we didn't need a thing while we stayed.

Absolutely Wonderful 2-week Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay from December 24, 2016 thru January 7, 2017 was incredibly wonderful and relaxing. Our host, Tom Cyphers, was professional, courteous and accommodating. This was our second stay at his vacation home (our first was for one week). We stayed in a different unit which had a larger yard for our pups. Tom surprised us by brightening up the unit with Christmas lights and decorations both inside and outside. Our unit had all the amenities that are needed for a comfortable and convenient experience. The location was quiet, safe and picturesque. We walked our dogs in the evening and felt safe and welcome by our neighbors. Tom and his family, went out of their way to resolve any issues that came up during our stay. I worked in the hospitality industry for 17 years and can honestly say that Tom Cyphers exemplifies the true meaning of "total guest satisfaction". My wife and I are convinced that we found the perfect place to stay whenever we visit St. Marys, Ga.

To top off our experience, on the day we left to return home, he sent the following text: "We will keep the lights on. See you soon".

Nothing is more "inviting" than to know how much you are appreciated as a guest.

Tom Cyphers...we thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
