Guestbook comments from the manager

My family enjoyed the most wonderful vacation at this home on St. Simons. Everything was just right - the cleanliness of the property, the comfortable well arranged decor, the pool, and of course the lovely marsh view. It is such an easy walk to the beach, even with small children. We enjoyed some of the island's amazing restaurants, which we found out about from our helpful manager Beth. Cooking at the home was fun too, with the spacious kitchen, and outdoor grill. We loved this home, and hope to return very soon! Thank you for a wonderful vacation experience.

The House was very clean and adequate for our four families.

  • 4 of 5

The house floors on the first floor were not level and the step down into the family room was a little bit of a problem for young children. The pool cleaner needed repaired and the pool service company took it for repairs on the 2nd day and never returned it. We had to hand clean it the best we could each day. Overall, the House was adequate for a one week stay.

Mini family reunion

  • 4 of 5

This house was great for all 7 of our family that gathered from around the U.S.

Being only a block off the beach was the best part.

Saint Simons Island get-away

  • 4 of 5

Great spot; on edge of marsh with its panoramic view of wildlife and in quiet neighborhood within easy bicycle ride to downtown. Within walking distance to beach. Pool was a big hit with the grand-kids...maybe bigger than the beach itself!

Good family cottage

  • 3 of 5

We spent fall break at this cottage. The arrangement worked out well for us, but it works not work for 11. The house was well equipped in all ways. There was plenty of pots and pans and dishes, games, puzzles, towels, and seating. The back of the house was very well done with a lot of decking around the pool, plenty of seating, a table with umbrella and chairs. We especially enjoyed the large lantana covered with butterflies every day.

The house did not quite live up to the pictures, which were well staged, but they do show how each room is furnished. The bathrooms are large and have been updated. There are several step downs that could use marking for safety.

The house sits on the marsh for a beautiful view and there are sliding glass doors to open the house up to the back. It would be good for the cleaning crew to keep them clean.

Overall I would definitely recommend this cottage for its location, good room for kids to have a place to go, and the pool area. We all had a great time while we were there.

Enjoyable Relaxing Vacation

  • 4 of 5

Nice home with nice neighbors. We enjoyed staying in this home and would rent it again. Private pool made for relaxing days. A few minor suggestions that would make it a Great home would be: 1). Have housekeeping leave the lid to the washing machine open when not in use so it doesn't have the awful smell. We ran it the first time empty of clothes with just bleach to get rid of the smell. Another home we rented numerous times in Myrtle Beach had that same style washer and the home owner requested the lid be left open when not in use so moisture can evaporate and not become stagnant. 2). Replace the sheets in the downstairs bedroom at the front of the house. The top sheet had holes at the foot section that my sister kept getting her feet caught in. 3). Put a dark colored rug at the step down section of the downstairs bedroom at the back of the house. My 73 year old husband fell the first afternoon because he couldn't distinguish that there was a step down into the bedroom. I moved the gray rug from the kitchen to step down on so it would be enough of a contrast from the light floors. Once I did that he did not have a problem. Other than those few minor issues that are quick fixes we would definitely rent this home again. Thank you for renting your lovely home to us.
