"I recently decided to take my wife and young children to the beach, and I needed a good home base while exploring the Georgia coast with my young family. My son is less than a year old and my daughter is two, and I knew this wouldn't be the kind of beach trip I was used to.
I wanted to avoid a cramped hotel, and I still wanted an affordable and safe place for my family to stay. I decided that a house/cottage rental would be appropriate. I found this cottage on VRBO, and contacted the owners who were very friendly and helpful. They had no problems with me bringing my babies down to the cottage, and they also informed me that a brand new A/C unit was being installed on my arrival date. I was a little hesitant about going to a rental on the coast with no A/C, but they assured me that it would be done by the time we arrived.
It's only about a 4-5 hour drive from north Atlanta, and we arrived at a beautiful, clean, and very cool air-conditioned cottage! The floor plan was very spacious and my little ones had a good time running around and circles and crawling on the floor! We all loved the shady screened in porch under the old oaks covered in Spanish moss.
We made daily trips down to Jekyll island on highway 17. It's a very scenic and peaceful drive up and down the coast, and after long days on the beach with the little ones- it was such a relief to have such a comfortable place to return to. The kitchen is massive, and we were able to have nice dinners together in the evenings.
I would recommend this cottage to anyone looking for some real rest and relaxation. Also, anyone looking for a nice getaway with the family, even with small children- this is the place to be. Very safe, very modern, and very comfortable. The property manager and the owners were super helpful throughout our stay. We will be back! No doubt. Thank you for helping us have a fantastic first family vacation!
