We really liked the house, very cute. Had everything we needed. Not really a marsh view, but it was too hot to sit outside and enjoy the view anyway so that worked out okay. The marsh was really close and had a nice little walking path we enjoyed. If I had only picked it to sit outside for the view I would have been really disappointed, but the ferry to Cumberland island was nice, as was St. Marys downtown (walking distance) and the Amelia Island/Fernando Beach downtown (45 minute drive). The air conditioning was nice and cold and our host's restaurant suggestions were FABULOUS. We had a wonderful relaxing time. Thanks!
Perfect Spot for Cumberland, Amelia Island and St. Marys
Had and an incredible week. Steve was so helpful and pointed us in the right direction for all the hot spots in the area. Great people and a great week. Place was very clean and just the right size. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to stay in the area.
Like staying with friends--only better!
My husband and I stayed for a week in early May; we had spent one night in St. Mary's the year before and knew that this was the place we wanted for our "base" for cycling the GA/FL coast. The cottage is tiny, but so well furnished and well equipped that we would definitely stay again, for longer. Sitting on the porch each morning was a true pleasure. We hit a period of days of thunderstorms, so the comfort of the cottage was important as we chose to just hang out there a couple of those "iffy" weather days. Steve and Kim were very helpful both before we arrived and during our entire trip. In fact, when we were leaving, it was like we were leaving friends. We can't wait to return for a longer stay. St. Mary's is very special as we prefer non-touristy areas where we can "act like the natives."
Steve is awesome!
We had a great time during our short weekend getaway! Steve was an amazing host. He was always ready with a suggestion or tip to make our stay better. We plan to stay here again soon.

Steve was great! I would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone. Like a home away from home.
