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 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. Bike rentals are available at multiple sites around the island.

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.

Beautiful cottage in a great neighborhood. Very family friendly.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the Mariner Cottage very much. It was clean, beautifully furnished and had all the amenities one needs for a family beach vacation. We enjoyed the heated community pools, short walk to the beach and close proximity to stores & restaurants and the elevator was definitely appreciated while loading luggage & groceries in and out. We would highly recommend this cottage for a relaxed, beach vacation.

Highly recommended Rental Property

  • 5 of 5

The Mariner was wonderful. It was very well stocked (Kitchen appliances, pots/pans, sheets, bath towels), beautifully decorated, and very spacious. The Mariner very comfortably housed our family of 8 adults and 2 children. With a large group it was wonderfup to have a full kitchen as well as a washer/dryer. We loved the location, a short walk to the beach and pool, a short walk to the marsh, a short drive to The Village, and a short drive to the grocery store. Perfect for all types of fun and relaxation for renters with different interests. We really enjoyed swinging on the top level balcony in the mornings and evenings. The owners are super sweet people and you can tell they want your stay there to be excellent. Our entire stay at the Mariner was wonderful. We definitely recommend the Mariner for your family vacation in SSI.

We absolutely loved our stay at the Mariner, Coast Cottage. It was so wonderful and spacious. My parents and my children were all with us and we all had our own space. A short walk to the beach and pool. Weather was perfect! Harold and Melissa were so nice to work with and made everything very easy and were so accommodating. We will definitely be calling to rent again!!! Fabulous!
