Why Jane Richard chose Saint Simons Heights
It is my sanctuary, and you will understand once you walk into this adorable cottage.
What makes this Cottage unique
The screened porch, the fire pit, comfortably furnished, (even the porch) Egyptian cotton linens, gas range... two full baths. I can’t even begin to tell you why this is my sanctuary.

Book Bienvenue! It’s a wonderful retreat!
We rented Janes’s lovely cottage for 3 weeks and it truly was a home away from home! We will come back! It’s prettier than the pictures, meticulously well-kept, and we’ll stocked with just about anything you might need. The beach vibe decor is well curated - not kitchy - and creates a fun, relaxing, comfortable environment. The beds are comfortable, the linens are good quality and so are the towels. The bathrooms are pristine. The kitchen is well stocked with just about anything you might need. The screened in back porch is basically an extra living room and also has a tv and dining area. It’s a wonderful refuge! The landscaping and fencing is well done - you’re in a cocoon with a lot of privacy from neighbors. The front porch is a great place to hang out too with comfortable seating and gorgeous landscaping. The hydrangeas, ginger lilies and birds of paradise were all in bloom and lovely. The location is convenient - you’re in walking distance to Southern Soul Barbecue and Sapelo Crow - two of the best, home grown restaurants on the island. Don’s Market and the local farmer’s market are also just a short walk away. Rent a bike and the beach is just a short and scenic ride down Old Demere Road underneath the great oak tree canopy. We will definitely stay here again. The owner is also very responsive and accommodating. Truly a perfect experience!
Great location, wonderful little house!
We LOVED staying in this house! It's a great location, up-island enough so you're away from the main gaggle of tourists. Walking distance to Southern Soul and Sweet Mama's, which is a huge selling point. :)
The house itself is gorgeous: built several decades ago,. the owner has preserved the awesome (check out those incredible floors!) while updating the necessary (excellent kitchen and bathrooms). It's well laid out and easy to get around. We loved the screened in porch in the morning, as well as the cute front potch. The art around the house is lovely - lots of quirky beach-themed paintings. The rooster one in the kitchen is my favorite.
We took our two labs with us, and they were perfect little ladies, of course. They enjoyed the back yard, but be aware: it's about 95% fenced. The far side of the yard opens up to the front yard. This wasn't a big deal at all: we stood in the gap and they were perfectly happy playing in the big part of the yard. Just don't leave your babies back there unattended and then be surprised when they're headed over to Southern Soul for a snack. :)
We'll definitely stay here again!
Thank you for the awesome review! The fencing issue has been addressed and a gate added to that side of the house, so it is back to 100%. (previous renter destroyed the other one with an incorrigible dog.). I am so glad you found Bienvenue an inviting little respite. She is my sanctuary and I love it when guests love her as much as I do!
You and your fur babies are welcome to stay any time!!
Really cute beach bungalow, huge screened porch, well stocked, great neighborhood, nice backyard.
We loved Jane’s home, and our time there. The house is an easy walk to lots of restaurants and stores, a long walk or nice bike ride to the beach. The porch, screened porch and backyard are great places to relax and enjoy the neighborhood trees and birds.
The kitchen is a cooks dream, well appointed and well stocked, light and bright. The open living room is very comfortable.
The beds are also comfortable and the baths are spacious.
Jane is quite accommodating and when any small glitches arose, she got right on getting things fixed.
We love St. Simons so much, and would rent Jane’s home again, but we bought our own around the corner.
Thank you for the wonderful comments and I am so glad you found your own little slice of heaven! Congratulations!!
Charming boho beach cottage!
We thoroughly enjoyed staying at this clean, comfortable and adorable beach cottage. It is vintage, yet renovated with a large, screened in back porch with a fenced in back yard. It was perfect for our family, guests and our dog. We would definitely like to return!
Thank you, Lois. I appreciate the comments and would love for you guys to return to Bienvenue. She is indeed a special little house.
Come back any time!!
