About Melinda Roughton

We are empty-nesters with one son in college, and one son a lawyer in NYC. My husband and I have a commuter marriage. I live here on St. Simons Island and work as the Executive Director of Glynn County Family Connection (which works to benefit children and families in our community). My husband is the Managing Editor of the Atlanta Journal Constitution. We have a commuter marriage. My husband is a year or so away from retiring, and he travels most weekends, or I go up to Atlanta. We live in the main house here and rent the guest house. When guests are here, they have the entire garden and pool area in between the houses in total privacy. We stay at our house and in our front and side gardens. You won't see us, unless you want to.

The bathrooms have beautiful custom tile and it is beautifully decorated throughout. Our property is priced realizing that you will need to drive (about 5-`10 minutes to the beach). Or, ride your bike (about 15 minutes).

What makes this Cottage unique

A Cote Cottage has been lovingly and fully renovated with beautiful tongue and groove ceilings and large french doors that open to the lush garden and pool. There is total privacy with a large secured fence, so dogs (not more than one or two) can roam freely and can't get out. The pool is salt water, with a salt water hot tub attached. It is brand new with top-of the-line tiles and stone design. The bathrooms have new custom tile and it is beautifully decorated throughout. Our property is priced realizing that you will need to drive (about 5-`10 minutes to the beach). Or, ride your bike (about 15 minutes). Every guest has remarked on the total privacy and resort-like setting with the pool, hot tub and surrounding garden and palm trees that makes them want to just stay there and relax. There is a large outdoor shower so that you can watch the trees and sky while you wash! And, a gas grill allows for family cookouts while enjoying the pool and hot tub.

The cottage was perfect for our family and was very cozy, quiet and private. Our girls loved playing in the heated pool and we also enjoyed the spa. The home is near Redfern Village with restaurants and shops, and a quick drive to the Village, Pier, Lighthouse, etc. and the beach. The owners were great and helped us with everything we needed. The house was equipped with everything we needed, was clean, and beautifully decorated. We can't wait to stay again. Thank you for a wonderful week in St. Simons!
