Fairway Drive Cottage - Coastal Georgia--golf, Fish, Sight See And More
average rating of 4.5 based on 11 reviews

Wonderful secluded setting. Amazing porch from which to enjoy stars & bird sounds. Wonderful place.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was everything we might have hoped for -- large, clean, well-maintained, simply but tastefully decorated, and very comfortable. There's lots within driving distance. This is a great home base for a laid back vacation. There are lots of out-of-the way places worth exploring -- towns, beaches, fishing spots, and one-of-a kind restaurants. Sitting on the porch, though, sipping coffee, might have been the most enjoyable part of all.

Chris was great to work with -- flexible and accomodating.

Owner's Response: Thank you Knobbe family! We are thrilled you relaxed and refreshed as a family in the cottage. We love hearing from families who actually reconnected during their visit with peace and quiet and everything you need within a short distance. The salt air from our Coastal Georgia waterways speak volumes as well. Please call us when you and the family want to return again. We would love having you as our guest again.

Clean, great space, safe, quiet, well stocked....

  • 4 of 5

The owner was amazing and had a welcome snack; even though we didn't see it until the last day..... everything was clean and well stocked. My only thing is that TMobile does not have coverage service and there's no wireless... it was a little hard to communicate with our family.

Owner's Response: Thank you DR for your comments about Fairway Drive Cottage. We are pleased you enjoyed your visit to our Coastal Georgia Shellman Bluff area. The owner and I discussed Wi-Fi when opening the home to the public and he said he wanted folks to disconnect and enjoy the nature and beauty of our area and to reconnect with family. Many folks discover easy connections with phone data to periodically check mail and then take a break from the phones. We hope you enjoyed family while here and look forward to your return visit. Warm Salt Coast Regards, Chris Reddick and the Owner

Christmas Cottage!

  • 4 of 5

This beautiful cottage is just that. It was perfectly comfortable during a Christmas celebration with my whole family. The drive to Savannah is not too much, yet when at the cottage, you feel like your worlds away from everything.

My mom & I were able to prepare a delicious Christmas dinner with the well equipped kitchen.

A few things could use some upgrading. Nothing major.

Wifi was an issue (more so for my teenagers) although I did enjoy the disconnect at times!

Chris was a sweet host by leaving banana nut bread. I had LITERLY one bite while my girls ate the entire loaf in one sitting.

Only regret was not realizing Alan, Chris' husband is a charter captain & not going out on the water before we left.

Chris & Alan have many properties. They take pride in their homes & you can feel it when you walk in!

Owner's Response: Thank you Kristi and family for your comments about the Fairway Drive Cottage . We are happy your holiday getaway with family had everything you needed. The owner and I have discussed the Wi-Fi and we return to the "disconnect, reconnect, and rejuvenate!" We welcome you to return again to continue making memories with family at The Bluff! Call or email for reservations. The next time I will remember to get you a private banana nut loaf and the other one will be for the children! :-) Also we will get you and your family out on the water with Alan as your Captain. Warm Regards, Chris Reddick and The Owner 912-223-2361

Golf stay

  • 4 of 5

the house was a great place for our foursome, clean, good beds and bathrooms. Nice big living/ kitchen area.

Only draw back was poor TV cable reception, very snowy and only local channels.

No wi fi.

But, it is a very nice house and suited our stay very well!

Highly recommend for a golf trip!

Owner's Response: Thank you Mr. B and fellow golfers for the great review! So happy the weather was right for your tourney and all was good at The Fairway Drive home. The owner has said "folks need to disconnect" and thus reason for basic cable and believing most have wi-fi access via phones. Hopefully it wasn't a discomfort too much! Take care and come on back. I will schedule you a T time! Warm regards, Chris and the Owner.

Great relaxation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved this property. Nice quite and just plain relaxing. Great open floor plan with plenty of space for everyone. My family loved staying here. Just jumped on the golf cart (we brought one) and cruise the area, check the local fish camp out and the waterfront. We will definitely be back. Thanks Chris!!

Owner's Response: I am thrilled you enjoyed the Fairway Drive home with your family. Your golf cart is one great way to see the area and stop and visit with other folks on the carts. The location of this property is in the heart of Shellman Bluff, but off the road a bit to have the private family time you mentioned and so enjoyed. We hope you will return soon and bring your family again. Please share with others your experience and we will be glad to host their family as well. Thank you again for your visit and business!

Boating Holiday

  • 5 of 5

There's always some apprehension when renting a property online, but we were very pleased when we arrived at this house. Admittedly, when the paved road ended we began to wonder if were lost - and when the dirt road turned to grass, we were sure of it. When we pulled in front of the house, we were all relieved - it was beautiful. Chris and Alan came by shortly after we arrived to bring the keys to the boat house. Their hospitality was over and above what was expected, and much more than we had experienced with other vacation rental properties. The house and its amenities were just as advertised in the website and it was very clean.

Anyone looking to get away and leave the interstate behind will appreciate this location. There were seven in our group. We were there for 3 nights over the July 4th weekend. On Friday, July 4th we put our boat in the water at the nearby Harris Neck park ramp and spent the day exploring Blackbeard's Island, Sapelo Island and the rivers and marshes in the area. On Saturday, we pulled the boat to St. Marys, GA and put in at the downtown public ramp. We rode to Cumberland Island, docked the boat at the first dock and explored the island on foot. We went to the mansion ruins and observed numerous wild horses, wild turkeys and a fawn that still had its spots. We then rode across the river to Amelia Island in Florida. We could have spent a couple of days exploring the island, but time was short. We'll have to save it for our next trip.

We thoroughly enjoyed our entire time at this house, and all of the people we met or encountered while there. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this location to anyone and we look forward to staying again.
