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.

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.

Awesome property!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a wonderful vacation our family had! This was our first time staying at the Mariner and visiting Saint Simon Island. Boy, were we blessed from the moment we got there. The Mariner was absolutely beautiful and the layout was perfect for our family of eight. This home was so spacious and so welcoming, we felt right at home.

We all enjoyed the nice walk each morning to the beach. Sometimes we even rode bikes instead. The pools were perfectly designed and we met so many nice people there. We would eventually end up under the beautiful gazebo at the pool and make plans for out dinner out. We visited many wonderful restaurants that were suggested by the owners, Melissa and Harold, they were spot on! Melissa & Harold were so accommodating in every way and so helpful in making our stay there perfect!

Staying at the Mariner was absolutely the best vacation our family has ever had. If you are planning to head to Saint Simon Island you must look into staying here. Everything about it was perfect and our family has a new tradition for the years to come.

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.
