The Cottage on Norris, Unit 'A' is our second 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 'A' is the front 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 'A' 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.

Fabulous Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 5th visit to St. Marys and each time we stayed at Norris A and absolutely loved it! The cottage has everything you will need for a long or short stay. We love the location. When we arrived we parked our van and didn't start it until our visit ended. It is pet friendly which was very important to us. We love it at Norris A and will definitely stay there again. We highly recommend it!

Incredible place with all you need!

  • 5 of 5

Owner was quick to respond on any questions we had. We had coffee maker dishes stove microwave fridge even laundry!! Everything was great even the neighbors were friendly! You are so close to local restaurants and the downtown area. You can go right to the ferry to Cumberland island and take the day trip. You are just a quick drive to Florida for any of their pristine beaches! It was clean and all things you need are provided! This is a gem and a perfect vacation! You have internet and ability to watch movies. The garbage men even chatted us up nicely! This is a perfect sweet cheap getaway that really will make your day.

Our time here was too short!

  • 5 of 5

We all enjoyed out stay including our 2 little dogs. It was very quiet so there was little barking. The cozy cottage was very clean which was a real plus! It was adequately furnished so that we could eat in when we wanted and also grilled out on the outdoor grill. The comfortable bed, pillows and towels made us feel like home. Friendly neighbors made it a delight!

Cute, quaint and great location

  • 5 of 5

We checked in on Friday and quickly felt that it was comfortable. Loved the tile flooring and white interior. Very clean and organized. We quickly found a place for dinner on the riverfront and enjoyed the feel of the main street running through that area. The cottage is close to the ferry area so we had lots of time to double check our preperations for our day on Cumberland Island (which we loved). We were able to get cleaned up when we returned and grab dinner down by the riverfront again. I will only include this as a word of advice for those of you out there renting, please don't have an arguement at 3 am. Tom was great when we contacted him about the people in the cottage behind us and things quieted down so that we could go back to sleep. He couldn't control that they were fighting but was able to remedy the situation quickly amd was very apologetic about it. We recommend staying with Tom to enjoy St Mary's and Cumberland Island.

Owner's Response: We are always grateful for reviews from my guests. This review is no exception. All travelers staying anywhere are entitled to peace and quiet. We sincerely regret that the couple in the cottage in the rear briefly interfered with what what have otherwise been a pleasant evening for all. As the Owner of the property we pride ourselves with being the very best hosts we can be. If you are considering this property please take a moment to read the reviews of this unit and the rear cottage (VRBO Listing number 568599). I think you will find that we have done a very good job of providing great accommodations to our many, many guests. Thank you. Tom & Beverly

This home was perfect for us. We enjoyed exploring Cumberland Island and enjoyed biking around St. Mary's. Such a cute town. This house was a great "home base" for the weekend. We will definatly book this again in the future.
