Salty Kiss Cottage, By the Sea, is just a few steps to the best part of the best beach on St. Simons Island (Olive Way public access steps from East Beach @ Coast Guard Station) .
Salty Kiss Cottage is beautifully decorated with hard wood floors, fully equipped kitchen, big comfortable beds, TVs, a big open expansive deck and an outdoor shower to wash the salty kiss of the Atlantic off of you after a long, fun day at the beach. On top of that, we provide all the beach essentials – chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, cooler, etc.
The deck is huge and extra special. Being on a corner lot, you get a big, expansive, open feeling like you’re on top of the world. You do not get that lost in a crowded condo-jungle feeling like on other parts of Saint Simons where houses and condos lay chock-o-block like sardines in a can.
There is plenty of parking (at least six+ cars) which is really convenient now that they are planning to charge folks to park at the East Beach Coast Guard Station lot.
Salty Kiss Cottage is far and away your surest and fastest way to clock onto Island Time on Saint Simons!
What is "Island Time," you might ask. Island Time is that that singular wink in time when in your soul knows paradise is found. You know you’ve (inexorably and for now) left the rat race behind. You wake up to the soothing sounds of the surf and birds singing, rather than at the shrill shriek of an alarm clock. On Island Time everything is more vivid: food tastes better, laughs ring heartier, and time slows down to a molasses-like drip, drip, drip. The experience of Island Time on Saint Simons Island is the open secret (shhhhhhh) that will keep bringing you back year after year (like it does us).
Recommendations to make the best of your Salty Kiss Cottage:
You can walk down to Ocean Motion and rent bikes to scoot around the island. Visit the village and pier. It is fun to take a long walk on a long pier at the ocean’s edge of the village. Strolling in and out of the village shops is also fun. If you like ice-cream you must make it to Moo Cow on Ocean Blvd near the village. Crazy good flavors. And if BBQ is your speed, make your way to Southern Soul BBQ @ the Demere traffic round-a-bout. Oinking good! If you love to work-out suggest you get a day or week pass at Saint Simons Health and Fitness Club.
Ranging farther afield – the Jacksonville Zoo is amazing as Zoo’s go. Shopping @ outlet stores in Darien is fun (as shopping goes). And for the ultra-adventurous, there is always Alligator wrestling (just kidding).
One more thing. If you need a bigger place for you and your clan we also offer the Sassy Peach Cottage (VRBO: 665232) which lays a literal stone’s throw from the Village on Fish Fever lane. It is inviting, super spacious, really nicely decorated and has a huge (heated) pool in the back yard (with a legit deep end)!
