About Don Pierce-Owner/Jaune' Pierce-Inquiries/Administrator

I am Don Pierce, the owner of Jasmine Hideway Cottage. I retired to Saint Marys from Atlanta, GA where I owned a high-end Antique business (now being run by his son). I found St. Marys over 12 years ago, after seeing the Southern Living Magazine article “There’s Something about Saint Marys”, in 2006, and came South for a visit, loved what I saw and immediately purchased property and began building my personal residence in 2007. I immediately fell in love with the town and people of Saint Marys and truly consider it “home”!

In September, 2011, I had a rare opportunity to purchase the “Collier-Casey House” which has remained in the “Casey Family” since the late 1800’s, and couldn’t resist the opportunity to own one of a rare few pieces of historic, coastal-front properties in “the village”. I placed the property on the VRBO rental program, where it has become one of the premier rental properties in the area. Looking for another unique property, I found the Jasmine Hideaway Cottage and decided it would make another perfect rental for visitors wanting a unique stay in the area.

Having my own home locally allows me to personally oversee the maintenance and rental of the property and to become acquainted with guests!

Don Pierce-Owner/Jaune' Pierce-Inquiries/Administrator purchased this cottage in 2016

Why Don Pierce-Owner/Jaune' Pierce-Inquiries/Administrator chose Saint Marys

Saint Marys is my home and is such a special place, we want to share it with others! There is a quaintness about St. Marys that you can only find in a few "hidden gems". It is a pleasant town and "the locals" are very friendly and embracing.

What makes this cottage unique

This Cottage offers a nice blend of privacy but closeness to all the activities offered by our beautiful little Coastal town and village. The Cottage provides a quiet hideaway, while you can be in the middle of the village and area attractions within minutes.

Not what I expected!!!

  • 2 of 5

The property was well decorated, however, some of the furniture was not very comfortable such as the two chairs in the den where we watched TV - extremely uncomfortable. The cottage smelled very musty and was partially cleaned upon our arrival, I guess the cleaning person forgot to sweep the floors and wash the stained coffee cups as well as the stained facecloth and some of the towels. Both bathrooms were extremely small and dated. Smelly hard water is not something that we anticipated in experiencing as well. The missing hair dryer and extra blanket were replaced by the owner during our stay. I wish the owner would have mentioned to us that the cottage was for sale and that the pool house in the back of the cottage was converted into a rental property before we rented the place or at least let us know before our arrival - we would have not rented the cottage. To be fair the owner did compensate us for the inconvenience of having the inspector, the realtor, the potential buyer and the TV repair person coming in and out of the cottage during our first week stay. We rented and paid the cottage for 16 days but we left after an 8 day stay. It was a disappointment to stay in this cottage especially when we traveled a long way and paid so much money for our stay. We did enjoy having many conversations with the respectful owner during our stay.

Quaint Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband had work in the area and we stayed here for five nights. It is located in a quiet community with little traffic. I certainly enjoyed my days there as everything imaginable is provided. It is decorated lovely, and the mattress was very comfortable. I felt a little sad when we left, because I felt so at home there. I was very touched by the personal card of the previous owner to her husband that is posted in the bathroom. Make sure you read it, a lot of love and attention went into their relationship and remodeling of this home together. If a cat pops up in the evening, she really appreciates a little tuna fish or cat food left on the front porch. We look forward to returning when our work and travels take us to this area. Linda and Don are great to work with, very kind people.

Owner's Response: Jan - Thank you for such a gracious review of your stay with us. I had to smile as I read your review because your stay with us was as hectic and unpredictable as any stay any of our guests have ever had!!! It was a crazy week, wasn't it? We couldn't have asked for better and more accomodating guests than you two! You did so much to help with preparing our Cottage and surrounding areas for the Hurricane, that we should be the ones sending you a gracious "Review"!!!! You were wonderful guests in spite of Hurricane Matthew! We welcome your return stay with us any time!!!!
