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 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)!

Property Manager purchased this Cottage in 2015
Why Property Manager chose St Simons Island
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 ...
What makes this Cottage unique
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!!!!

Great Location and good lighting
Needs a good cleaning on deck, outside furniture and a new charcoal grill. We love the location and the owner was very responsive to our needs for a dog gate, baby crib, and extended checkout. Also several repairs were scheduled to not inconvenience us. We would consider staying there again if the issue with the deck was resolved.
It was an unusually cold winter in Saint Simons so we had held off on cleaning the deck until it warmed up and would have gladly done it when the guest was there if they had requested or made their needs known to us which they did not during their month long stay. We have subsequently done a thorough power washing on the deck, grill and furniture. We gave them a gift card to their favorite restaurant to make up for the inconvenience of doing work (which is somewhat unavoidable on a month long stay). . And we provided a baby crib and dog gate on request. We strive to respond to any and all customer requests when they are made known to us.
this is a very clean, attractive beach house with many amenities. It is a close walk to large beach
St Simons in winter is very quiet allowing for long walks on a great beach. Restaurants are short drive from house.
House is well stocked inside and has bikes and other sporting equipment.
Great Vacation Home!!
We loved our stay at the Salty Kiss Beach Cottage ... It was perfect for us, walking distance to the beach and a very short drive to everything on St. Simons Island. The home is lovely and very well decorated in beach décor, my only complaint is that we didn't get to stay long enough!!
The best solution to your problem: stay longer (lol)
Amazing house by the beach!
I love this house. Had fun on the beach just a hop, skip and jump away. The house itself had everything we needed. Beach gear, outdoor shower, ample parking for all our cars, big deck. I highly recommend it!
thx for staying! y'all come back soon now.
Salty Kiss Cottage was great, perfect location yet tranquil in nature. Stayed with another family of four and found it to be spacious enough. Deck was wonderful for morning coffee, afternoon breaks and evening wind-downs. Can't wait to go back.
Great location and very comfortable!
Wonderful home with everything we could need available. Kids loved basketball and ping pong and very easy walk to the beach. We loved the big porch and lovely area perfect for family vacation. Thanks for having us!
Thanks for staying and welcome back anytime!!!
