About the Property

Amazing 3 bd, 2 bth beach cottage, open air deck, outdoor shower

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 just a few steps to the best part of the best beach on St. Simons Island (just down from the old 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)!

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2015

About: We, Tracy and JD, live in Singapore (another island paradise) but come back to Saint Simon's Island regularly like migrating birds. While I've been making the trek back nearly every year since I was a wee 9 mos old, Tracy joined me on her first sojourn to the island in 2009. We are both Southern bred. Im a proud Volunteer in a family of Bulldogs. Tracy is the architect of the classy Salty Kiss Cottage style: inviting, fun, relaxing, your perfect passport to clock onto Island Time. Whether you are a long time SSI denizen or a newbee we would be happy to give you tips on how to make your stay at Salty Kiss Cottage more enjoyable and memorable. Just drop us a line.

Why Saint Simons Island, GA, USA:
We bought the Salty Kiss Cottage in 2015. JD wanted to call it "French Kiss Cottage", but Tracy preferred “Salty Mouth Cottage” (indicative of her propensity to use color in her language). So we joined the two into one and named it “Salty Kiss Cottage” which captures the whole mood of the place. Marriage is all about the compromise, right? We already own and rent out Sassy Peach Cottage over by the Village and had been looking for the perfect place near our favorite beach (East Beach @ Coast Guard Station) to have the full SSI experience. A couple of times a year our rather large extended family descends onto the island to join us on our sojourns back to the US. Thus, Salty Kiss Cottage is decorated and laced with lots of love. We hope that you enjoy it as much as our family does ...

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The best part of Salty Kiss Cottage is its proximity to the best beach on SSI. The big, open deck is great for BBQ, entertaining or romantic star gazing. The inside is Seaside Cottage decor and whisks you to Island Time. The outdoor shower is really handy and having all of the beach necessities prepared for you means less hassle and more fun. It is the perfect location to make memories with family and friends!!!!
