Pet friendly cottage in quiet village location! Most FLETC per diem accepted

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 1 - 5 nights


About the property

2 bedrooms, 1 bath home with large fenced in back yard.

Perfect for a couple or small family, this cute classic 'naval' cottage, constructed for naval airmen stationed on the island during the second world war, is charming from the white picket fenced-in front yard to the beautiful hardwood floors awaiting your steps inside.

Two cozy, quiet bedrooms perfect for a sound island's sleep, and two distinct living areas for those preferring to staying up. These areas include a main living room, comfortably furnished, splashing oceanic colors and island styles, and an additional living area with comfy sofa, large desk area and an additional TV. The perfect vacation 'workspace'

So, if you have to work while staying on the Island, you have an office space separate from others.

The master is comfortably furnished with a new plush queen bed, 2 dressers and a TV. The guest room has two newer twin beds. The bath has been totally updated with all tile and beaded board, and ample storage for all your bath linens and toiletries.

The large deck, overlooking the enormous, fenced-in backyard, provides a great spot for outdoor dining, enjoying morning coffee or lounging around with afternoon cocktails. A charcoal grill is provided.

The quaint kitchen has new dishwasher plus all the basic necessities. The eat-in dining nook provides comfortable seating for 4-6 with built in bench seats.

Laundry room with full washer/dryer is located off the deck. All that is missing is the ocean, and it's just blocks away.

As the owner I do my best to ensure home is comfortable and inviting. You will find a supply of many basic items such as soap, TP, paper towels, dish detergent and laundry detergent. You will have enough coffee for at least the first few nights and there will be charcoal for the grill. I live locally and am in the home before every guest.

I am very accustomed to working with government agents stationed at FLETC. No problems with specific invoicing requirements, potential change in orders, variations in deposit policies, etc.

About Mellette

I am so blessed that I have lived and work on St. Simons Island since 1986. I try not to take the beauty of the Island for granted and appreciate my surroundings everyday. I actually work in property management but this little jewel of a home is my pride and joy. I live within a mile of the house and personally enjoy all this area has to offer from walking to the Village for lunch or dinner, meeting friends at Palm Coast for cocktails and live music or just enjoying the sunset from the pier. I hope you find the Island as charming and wonderful as I have found it to be.

Mellette purchased this house in 1994

Why Mellette chose St Simons Island

I am not a condo lover. I enjoy the privacy of a home and puttering around the yard or sitting on my private deck space. Being in property management I understand the limited properties available with a fenced in yard for your furry family members. I hope my little home provides a venue for visitors to enjoy all the Island has to offer without having to leave any family members at home.

What makes this house unique

Just a short walk or a bike away from some of the island's best dining, shopping, and sightseeing. If the Village is the heart of the island, then this jewel at 506 Ashantilly is certainly the gleam in its eye.

Loved the cozy cottage feel with comfortable well appointed furniture, art and style!f

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the cottage on St Simon Island. The location was perfect, and house was so very comfortable . It was really an excellent home away from home. Melette had a binder full of great recommendations of places to visit, restaurants, and good shopping tips which was very helpful. I viewed many places before booking and was so happy with our choice.

Charming and convenient, Gem of a cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I both loved our stay at this little cottage. We are so thankful for the hospitality Mellette offered, including allowing our dog, Trixie, to stay in the cottage with us. Close enough to walk to the Village and a very quick drive to East Beach, which is where we did our swimming. The neighborhood was quiet, not much traffic at all, perfect for dog walks and good sleep.

From the outside, this house is cute, but you would never guess how Wow! it is inside. You are in for a treat when you walk through the door. Even better than the pictures show, decorated so perfectly! The layout makes the house seem larger than it is and allows plenty of room to spread out and everyone can have some space to themselves. We found ourselves tucked into the cozy den most evenings after swimming, sightseeing, etc were done. The bedrooms are really nice, the queen bed is sooooo comfortable! There is a deck in back to chill out on, which is where we had most of our breakfasts. And of course, the fenced yard was much appreciated.

We had a small issue with one of the doors while we were there and Mellette was immediately responsive, taking care of the issue right away. Thanks again for the perfect place to stay! We would/will stay here again without a doubt.

Beautiful island cottage that feels like home

  • 5 of 5

Mellette makes you feel at home with a personal letter and fresh flowers. Our dogs loved the large fenced back yard with the squirrels and Lily the next door neighbor dog. We loved spending time on the back deck and grilling. We had one of the best vacations ever while here and will be back. Thank you Mellette!!!!

Some things that I would consider a 'must do' depends on how long you are here for. Exploring the Island by bicycle is one of the best ways to get familiar with your closest surroundings. Meandering through quiet neighborhoods is my favorite and this location is great for just that. Kayaking in the marshes is another favorite. You can take 2 or 3 hour adventures with guided tours thru the winding inlets. If you are here for a longer stay there are an abundance of day trips available. My favorites are Cumberland Island(accessible by boat), Little St. Simons(by boat as well), Okefenokee Swamp-awesome hiking or kayaking! Historic Savannah and St. Augustine are just a bit over an hour away.
