About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Bath, Lovely Beach Home With Lighthouse Room, 3 Min. Walk To Beach

4 bedroom, 3 bath home

2542 square feet

Lovely Mariner Cottage is in the beautiful seaside community of Coast Cottages. The award winning community boasts of two pools and beach access with a boardwalk at a wide section of the St. Simon’s beach. Go for a morning stroll, only a short walk to the beach.

Mariner Cottage, built in 2000, has a unique feature of a stunning living room built in the shape of a lighthouse. A great place to relax with family and friends, this room is filled with light from the floor to ceiling windows. At night the lighting is spectacular and lends a cozy, comfortable, relaxed feeling to the room.

This three-story home has the living area and kitchen on the top floor. Enjoy the front and back porches with one of St. Simon’s beautiful live oaks just off the front porch and a lovely view of Coast Cottage Lane off the back covered porch. You need not worry about carrying groceries to the top floor. Just hop on the elevator and ride to the top.

Sleep a total of eight on the first two floors. The bottom floor has two bedrooms and a bath with queen beds in each room. The second floor has a bedroom with twin beds and another room with a King. Two full bathrooms are on the middle floor.

Enjoy a bike ride into the village on the bikes provided by the homeowner or take a longer trip to the north end of the island to see the beautiful setting of Christ Church amongst the hundred-year-old live oaks. Another St. Simon’s favorite is an early morning bike ride to the beach to see the sunrise.

About Harold and Melissa McLendon

Our family is thrilled to be the new owner of Mariner Cottage. We have vacationed on St. Simon's Island for the past 25 years, coming to the island every summer, spring break and many Thanksgivings and New Years. Staying at Coast Cottages was our favorite and we have wonderful memories of vacationing at the Mariner Cottage with our children and friends. My husband and I are native Georgians and raised our family in Marietta, Ga. We watched the Coast Cottages being built and looked many times at homes for sale in this community. We are so pleased to own the Mariner and to be able to share our new home with others. We hope that you can create fabulous memories with your family and friends vacationing on the island, as we have through the years.

Great weekend at SSI!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed a great weekend on St. Simons Island with our 4 kids and my 2 parents. This house accommodated all of us very comfortably and was an easy walk to the pool and the beach. We especially enjoyed the porch off the kitchen on the third floor.

The elevator was a life saver for bringing in luggage and again when we packed up to leave.

We cooked most meals in and found the kitchen to be well-appointed.

My only note of caution for folks with young toddlers looking at this property is that there are a lot of stairs! And, unfortunately, the spindles on the railing on the third floor were spaced enough apart that our 19 month old could fit through them! Yikes! We simply covered the railing in a blanket so he wouldn't be attracted to it and were fine. In retrospect we should have brought a baby gate with us too to block off the stairs, but we managed just fine.

Bottom line, this was a very nice home and we had a great weekend. Would recommend this for a family with multiple ages.

Perfect family vacation property

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for 5 nights over Spring Break. Loved this home and it's design. The kitchen and family room are on the top floor. The elevator makes bringing groceries and baggage to where they need to go, so easy. What a great spot to cook and hang out and play board games. Property is beautifully decorated and well maintained. Great location for beach and walking to restaurants. Never stayed near St. Simon's before, but we will be back. Property owner was very helpful and kind. Overall a great experience!

Not sure if it's mentioned, but I would encourage any renter to bring beach towels.

Great Home and Great People

  • 5 of 5

From the first communications with the owners of Mariner I could tell these were the kind of folks I would feel comfortable renting from. They made the process very convenient and I could tell they would do whatever it took to make sure we had a great stay. I would rent from them again and highly recommend their beautiful beach home.

Great home! Great owners!

  • 5 of 5

This home has a great layout. Our group ranged from 12 years old to 80 years old and the separate floors offered lots of privacy. The breeze and view from the deck was wonderful. The owner's, Melissa and Harold ,were VERY responsive to our questions and needs. I highly recommend this property for a large family who intends to do some cooking!

Perfect house for a large family

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at your beautiful house.We were there for a wedding. We had my mom, sister, brother in-law, nephew, and my niece The separate floors gave us all a way to get away if need be. Ha ha. The steps were also not a problem. My 87 year old mother only used the elevator once just to see what it was like!! The kitchen was well stocked. The house was clean and decorated so nice!! The walk to the pool and beach was easy. Thank you so much for a great weekend!!!
