First trip to Shellman Bluff. After looking for vacation properties to accomidate our fishing weekend at Shellman Bluff I came across the Aqua Bluff Cottage. I contacted Mrs. Chris Reddick to book this cottage and with her rapid response she was able to book this for our fishing experience. Very convenient - We were within walking distance of the fish camp/boat ramp and Hunters Cafe - less than one block. The cottage was everything Mrs. Reddick said it would be. It was clean, accommodating, comfortable and safe for anyone. I was unsure of where to fish having never been to Shellman Bluff, so Mrs. Reddick lined us up with the best fishing guide at Shellman Bluff - "Mr. Alan"!!! It seemed he had the most knowledge of fishing in that area and spent the entire day fishing with us and showing us where to fish/how to fish and why to fish in the different locations. (And We Caught Fish!). I would recommend Mrs. Chris Reddick and Mr. Alan to anyone who wants to spend time at Shellman Bluff! Great Trip!!! I will be going back.....

Aqua Bluff is charming!

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent a week at Aqua Bluff and learned quickly to kick back and take in the scenery and charm of Shellman Bluff, GA. In early spring, there were no crowds allowing us to bike or take walks along the water with ease. The cottage was very comfortable--modern and cozy. My husband and I were traveling with my mother and her small dog and the space was just right. Mom and I enjoyed seeing how creatively it was decorated. Aqua Bluff made a great starting point for us to explore the surrounding area that is filled with history and southern hospitality. We were able to spend a day each at Sapelo Island, St. Simon's, Jekyll Island, Darien and Savannah and still have time to taste the local cuisine and relax. Chris, the realtor, is very helpful and eager to ensure a great visit. That's just what we had!

Aqua Bluff Cottage

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful warm lovely place. We spent 2 and 1/2 months here and loved every minute of it. This cottage is a perfect place to spend as a winter getaway. Shellman Bluff is a sleepy little fishing village full of Southern hospitality and charm. We kayaked many rivers and swamps in the area, and rode the tides in and out. We also enjoyed riding our bikes all around the area. The cottage itself is charming, extremely clean and new, with all the amenities for a comfortable stay from a few days to a few months. The neighbors were very welcoming and even included us in their Low Country Boil feast on New Years Day. Chris was wonderful to work with and made sure all our needs were met in her gracious and easy way. Her kindness and consideration were the perfect example of true Southern hospitality. This is a little slice of paradise and we hope to return as soon as possible.

Trying to Relocate..

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in several VRBO properties from New Mexico to Florida and several places in between. This "Aqua Bluff" cottage is by far the best place we have used on VRBO. It is so clean , well kept and makes you feel comfortable like your home. Everything is modern form the kitchen to the baths. I would highly recommend "Aqua Bluff" ..Thank you Chris, everything was GREAT.

Great place and location

  • 5 of 5

Was down in shellman bluff over the 4th of July. House is great! Very nicely remodeled with everything you need! Located a stones throw from Hunters Cafe and the fish camp. Kept my boat on the dock at fish camp the whole time which made for easy fishing and trips to hang out on the sandbar with other boaters. You won't be disappointed!

We took our two kids (8 girl and 12 boy) down for a long weekend. We had a wonderful time with an extremely nice place to stay. We couldn't ask anything better for the amenities and the people are all wonderful. We look forward to visiting again and fishing more!!

The Marsh Life Cottage is nestled in the heart of Shellman Bluff and literally you could walk to everything you wanted or needed. Many folks trailer their golf cart down and leave the truck keys on the counter and never get in. They will either drive the boat or drive the golf cart down to the golf course.

The Marsh Life Cottage has been completely remodeled down to the bones of the home, for an inviting family getaway location. The coastal colors in the home just pop with your comfort thought of throughout the 2 bedroom, 2 bath, and everything you need for your getaway.

Enjoy the local restaurants within walking distance and a couple about 6 miles away. Put your boat in at one of the 3 Shellman Bluff marinas and get your catch of the day grilled up on your grill at the cottage!

If you are up for a venture out day, Savannah and Brunswick and the Golden Isles are just a short car ride away to take in more than you could see in a day. Most folks say they never went past Coastal Highway 17 their entire vacation. Nothing like disconnecting, unwinding, and getting to know your family in the beautiful setting.

Harris Neck Wildlife Refuge is a great state park to take in all the beauty of the coast with birds, trails, trees, flowers and more to enjoy by foot or on bicycles.

Kayaking has also become the RAVE here on the Coast and we can set you out on the rivers or take you to an island for tootling around out there and come and pick you up.

Many fishermen agree with having a captain show them the drops, holes, tackle, and bait to use on their first day out on the water and then put the tips they picked up to use the rest of their getaway. We can make that happen for you as well.

Our Marsh Life Cottage has plenty of porch area to enjoy the draping live oaks and take in the smells of the saltwater. Many folks come to live on the coast as they find the saltwater to be healing and peaceful. Come check it out for yourself. Relax, Refresh, and Rejuvenate!!!

Let us know if you have any other questions prior to booking The Marsh Life Cottage and we can do our very best to accommodate you and your family.
