EXCELLENT location- steps from not one, but 2 beach accesses and a 10 minute walk in either direction on Ocean Blvd will get you restaurants and shops (including Pier Village). We enjoyed watching cargo ships float by from the rooftop deck and hearing the waves from the porch. The house was well stocked and management was great to work with. Can't wait to go back!
Super cute and cozy! They had a bunch in the way of kitchen items (pots, pans, serving spoons, plates, etc.) which was helpful on the occasions we ate in. I loved how close we were to the beach and the second story porch to view the sunsets. We were more than comfortable.
Very attentive hosts and such a great location. Walking distance to the lighthouse and some nice restaurants. House was clean and had a nice view of the beach
Perfect central location
This property is centrally located to all the great activities on the island. A small beach is just steps away from the front door and since we were there in the off season it was virtually deserted. The rooftop deck provides great views! House is well stocked with all the necessary items for a wonderful vacation. We will definitely consider renting again!
I was visiting St Simon's on business, my wife and I spent 17 years in the area until 2020 retirement, so we knew what to expect. The cottage is close to the pier and lighthouse and all that it encompasses. The ocean was just a few feet down a path, and you could hear the wave most of the day. The cottage has a nice second level deck from which you can see the ocean. Do realize this is a cottage not a 5 start beach resort and the building is older, so expect creaky floors and doors that don't close well. Overall, the cottage was clean and everything worked fine. Great for a medium-sized family, with plenty of room.
The best porch and views on SSI
Can???t wait to get back to the Cottage next year ????????
Great location - the house is cute and as depicted in the photos. The front porch is nice to for an evening glass of wine listening to the ocean.
We absolutely enjoyed that this beach house was an ideal location and family and dog friendly. Our toddler LOVED all the toys and books. The location was perfect for a short walk to the beach. And the ocean view from the top was lovely. The house could use some updates and minor maintenance. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
Very nice house and extremely close to the beach! Had such a great time would be back in a heartbeat!
My family and I had a wonderful vacation at this adorable beach cottage. It is a very cozy, clean and well equipped home with so much charm and character. The beach access is truly just a 2 minute easy walk from the house. I would recommend this rental and would love to come back again.
Great little beach house
My husband, two dogs, and myself stayed at this property for a week in August. The location of the house cannot be beat, its literally less than 60 seconds from the door to feet on the sand. Its also an easy 10 minute walk to the downtown shops and restaurants. The house itself is charming and well lived in. Its clean, but not precious, which is great when you want a pet friendly stay. We loved our stay here and would definitely come back to stay here again! The kitchen is well stocked too, which was a nice surprise to not have to buy extra paper goods, or trash bags, or dishwashing soap.
Sweet house a stone's throw away from beautiful beaches
Nice little house with two beautiful porches (upstairs and downstairs) to sit and enjoy the sounds and views of the ocean. Quiet street where you can feel safe with your family and an easy walk into the lovely St. Simons island village. The inside of the house is nice with plenty of room for 4-8ish people. It's the perfect little beach getaway house.
This house was very family friendly, cute and in an ideal location. We suggest a fresh coat of paint and new caulking around the tub, but all else was in keeping with the informal style and relaxing vacation atmosphere. Our dogs enjoyed it too!
We truly enjoyed our visit to the home and SSI! We look forward to coming back again!
Great place right by the beach! Had a miscommunication about the check in but they had great customer service!
You can't beat the location of this house, literally across the street from the beach! Overall the house had everything we needed, however, the house could use some updating/upgrades.
Highly recommended! The house is great and the location is too! Definitely will book again!
Charming bungalow, great location.
Literally 50 steps to the beach. Great front porch for hanging out. Hardwood floors and 3 bedroom layout all on the first floor was very convenient. 1940's era but upkeep was good. A/C must have been newer because it worked great. 10minute walk to the shopping and restaurants at the village. First trip to St, Simons and loved it !
The house was older but was fairly well maintained. The furnishings were clean. The only problem was the hardwood floor and rugs needed a really good cleaning.
A nice large comfortable family space with lots of windows and a lovely front porch facing the ocean.
What a sweet little property! The view from the upper deck is amazing and the beach is truly just 100 ft away. It was great with my two year old grandson and his infant sister. There was a high chair for her and the house was pretty well child proofed for him. We had a great time
Nice but needs a little TLC
Perfect location and very cute house. Needs a little love, especially the kitchen tiles - be careful or they might cut small children. We really enjoyed our stay though, amazing location and very responsive management.
Enjoyed our first visit to Island. Just across street to beach access! Beach chairs provided! Lovely linens and good mattress! Well stocked kitchen and bath. Not new or fancy but decor was very nice! Character abounds!
A comfortable, clean and well-furnished cottage. The kitchen had nice appliances and was well stocked. We had access to beach chairs, etc, which was nice since we didn't have room to pack our own. The locale was great-an easy walk to the pier and the beach was just across the street. We especially enjoyed the rocking chairs on the huge front porch. We felt right at home!
You will have a great time at this older cottage with close proximity to the beach! We took our dog so it was a great first time experience for us a travelers with our fur baby. If you want to cook there are plenty of items available to you for meal prep. We felt it was very well equipped for that.
This cottage was perfect for us. It's location was top notch, within walking distance to the village and pier. It had an old-school island vibe and we loved sitting on the porch listening to the waves. My family lives on the island and they came over everyday. We are already planning our next vacation!
by Joey & Sharon
The house was located in a perfect area. Close to everything. Views were spectacular!!
Great location and great house! The house is literally a 3 minute walk from the beach on a nice side street. We were only two people so we had tons of space as it is a three bedroom. The house also provides a good amount of towels, bedding and kitchen supplies which is helpful. Overall, we had a great time!
Hard to beat beach access and size of the place. Perfect for bringing a dog to sprint up and down the beach. Highly recommend taking the bikes for a ride along the beach during low tides!
Very clean and comfortable old school beach cottage in a great location. Quiet street. Everything was great and the host was responsive. Would stay here again
Nice spot, house was clean.
Ryan's place was such a comfortable, clean, well apportioned cottage so very close to the beach. I appreciated being able to bring my little chihuahua and having him so welcomed by the owners and the community. There's plenty of parking, privacy, and everything to make you feel at (Website hidden by Airbnb) the beach! Jeanine
This is in a perfect location and super cozy house! Steps from the beach and within walking distance to the village. We will definitely be back!
I hope to stay again at this most relaxing beach cottage.
I enjoyed the front porch, during a rainy day for reading and eating. The widow/ captains walk provided a fun and beautiful view. It was a very short walk to the beach with our 2 dogs while carrying a paddle board.
Met all expectations
We keep coming back!
Usually, we like to mix up our beach vacations, and try different accommodations around the southeast. However, we find this SSI beach cottage so pleasant and comfortable that it's the one place we enjoy returning to! It's so close to the beach that you practically FEEL beachfront, and we enjoyed every meal on the spacious front porch (this space was especially appreciated since we ordered all our meals through Islandtime contactless delivery). Though it was the first week of June, we were able to stay at least 20-30 feet from other parties out on the sand. Being able to enjoy our vacation with our dog makes it all the more special.
This house is in a great location! Just steps from the beach and a short walk to town. The house has lots of charm!
Great place. Lots of space. Very clean. Toys, games, books — all the amenities.
Spectacular view of the beach! Key things to know: within walking distance to GREAT restaurants, the light house, and shopping. The beach access is literally across the street which makes a beach day very easy. It's a dog friendly beach!!! We had so much fun down there seeing all of the happy dogs. It was adorable. It's on a very quiet street with very little traffic. The place is pretty large and the views from the top of the house deck were amazing! Thanks for letting us stay!
We loved this house and the front porch! If you are able to climb steps, the top deck has the best view. Id bring a couple of chairs to leave up their during your stay. The location is perfect. Its across the street to the beach, but you really couldnt be closer with an easier walk. The front porch is gated but doesnt lock. However, it's still a great porch for little ones to run around and play. We had breakfast and dinner on the front porch. The breeze never stopped, so the temp was perfect. The house is very clean. Kitchen is well stocked. The house has everything you need.It is an older original home but its in great condition and very clean. No complaints. We will rent again.
We enjoyed our stay - very cute house with great gathering spaces for family.
Fabulous little beach house. It was a great location for going back and forth to the beach; we walked it in the morning, swam in the afternoon, and walked again late at night. The outdoor shower was a plus, as well as the grill to cook our fish we caught. Kitchen was pretty stocked with all the things you might need to cook. Upper and lower decks were great for dinner, and to hang out at night. (we never turned the tv on) We rented bikes and went fishing and kayaking close by. Honestly, just relaxing with a book on the couch was great, too. We will definitely be back!
Great beach house that is close to the beach.
Ideal in Every Way
by Peggy D.
Yâ€™all, we enjoyed our stay so very much. The location was perfect and the house was immaculate and very well equipped. We actually fell in love with your Island and are looking at property to relocate from Atlanta. Would love to stay in your cottage again, Peggy
Bliss on the Beach
by Jennifer S.
We loved this house so much. From the descriptions, I thought it would be a little ramshackle, but it was not AT ALL. It was lovely - and while it is not technically beachfront because there is a tiny road and houses in between, you can hear the ocean and see parts of it from the porch. It was so nice to be able to bring our dog, especially having the gated front porch so we could all be outside together. The kitchen, while small, is very well stocked in terms of anything you could need - we had no problem cooking a full thanksgiving dinner. We are all hating our departure and would love to come back. Our only complaint is a couple of our emails went unanswered by the management company.
Charming Beach Cottage
by Shirley B.
It was a well appointed charming little beach cottage. Perfect for a girls beach holiday. Had a wonderful little porch & widows walk (which we didnâ€™t get to enjoy because it had turned cold). Maybe next time as we would love to rent this place again.
by Margaret H.
We had a wonderful stay in your comfortable and homey cottage. The location is perfect, as it is very close to the beach and a pleasant stroll to the Village area. We spent a lot of time on the front porch, which makes you feel that you at the beach even if there's a shower and you don't feel like walking on the beach in the rain. Being able to bring our dog was an added bonus. I'd definitely like to stay there again.
Great autumn getaway
Very cozy and cute cottage! We loved the hardwood floors and antiques. Just a very short walk to the beach, perfect for evening and morning walks.
by Elizabeth D.
Thank you for letting us share the beach with our dogs! We had a great time.
by Susan B.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here! Perfect location , steps to the beach, walk or ride our bikes into town. Very spacious home with charming beach decor! Loved the roof deck, nice water views! The house was fully equipped with all the amenities one needs , would definitely recommend this place!
Labor Day 2019
by Paul T.
Great weekend getaway. We were worried w hurricane Dorian brewing but it stayed away while we were there. Property management folks stayed in touch and were responsive to questions. House is older and full of charm. Loved it. Very clean. We could walk to pier and the beach was just across the street. Totally enjoyed our stay.
Cozy Cottage, can't beat location
by Tom M.
If you're fine with a bit of rustic and a lil dust, you can't beat this cozy cottage for the price & location. My wife, 5yr old, 2yr old, and morkie dog had an absolute blast and would recommend it to anyone looking for great value at a stunning location. THANK YOU!!!
by Todd H.
Wonderful location great architecture really enjoyed ourselves
Location, location, location!!!
by Katie K.
This vintage beach cottage takes you back to a simpler time! We loved the vibe, the wood floors, the huge porch. Beds were comfortable, everything listed was provided!!! But the best part of this house is the location! Yes, itâ€™s steps to the beachâ€”but itâ€™s the quietest stretch of beach!!! And itâ€™s totally walkable to the village. We loved having our dog along with us- pet friendly with a gated front porch, this place will meet and exceed all your vacation needs!!
Sweet, comfy cottage..
by Jessica E.
This is one of those rare properties about which my family of four agrees- we would all love to stay here again. Such a refreshing change from all the condos- clean, charming, private, surprisingly spacious, and so, so close to the beach. One nice surprise was that the front porch had a little gate at the top of the steps, so we were able to hang out there with our dog (his first vacation ever.)
Brief getaway to st. simons
by mike k.
my wife and I, our dog, and a good friend just spent three enjoyable days at The Seaside Cottage on St. Simons Island. While we were already in love with the island, and village itself, having stayed in this cottage left us loving the island even more! The cottage is exactly as described, and for us anyway, exactly perfect. The location to the beach, the village, and good restaurants helped make sure we had an excellent stay. I would highly recommend this home to anyone, and already look forward to our next stay there.
by Teresa L.
From the moment we walked in we fell in love with this cottage. It was comfortable and had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay. The ocean breeze was wonderful and beautiful beach just steps away. The beds were comfortable and rooms were big and bright. Overall this cottage is old world charm that makes you feel right at home. We will be back to enjoy again!!!!

Not happy about fee for cleaning,otherwise very nice
by Michael T.
nice location to beach and pier shops. Upper deck view of the ocean was nice. Entering and clean were very nice!
Great location, spacious, great fit for our family
Overall, everyone in our adult family reunion celebrating our parents' 65th wedding anniversary, thought the accommodations "exceeded expectations". We were very thankful for this place. The great room was activity central. We were able to get 10 chairs (our whole group) around the dining table. While the weather was not right for pool season, we did use it! Most of us walked to the nearest access point to the beach and enjoyed walking it (at less than high tide 🙂 The weather for the weekend was close to perfect. God blessed our family with sweet parents who have been good examples to us, with loving sibling relationships, happy times as a family, and this was the most recent highlight of life "together" - though we live miles apart.
Overall experience was very good.
Very Nice, Could be even better with a few extra touches
We stayed in Seaside Cottage in early May. It was our first trip to St. Simon's and after vacationing a lot in beach rentals in Florida, it was a very nice change of pace. We were able to bring our dog and that was a huge plus for us. The entire island is very dog friendly as is this home. The house is older but charming and has a lot of character. The furnishings are different than what is pictured for the living room, but the other rooms are accurately pictured. For us, after having stayed in many VRBO properties over the years, we felt that this house was great but could have been even better with the addition of a few things. I really wanted to do 4.5 stars, but there is no option. If the house had these additional touches, it would be 5 stars all the way. The Very Nice: Location: Fantastic location to the beach! Great area of town to walk to the village or bike all around the island. We loved it. Dog Friendliness: HUGE for us. Thank you for allowing pets in the home! Bedding and Towels: Great quality linens and towels (no beach towels that we could find, but we brought our own.) Very comfortable beds. Cleanliness: VERY clean and tidy! Wifi: Excellent connection most of the time The Could Be Better: Porch and Outdoor Area: Don't underestimate outdoor living. Having a porch is very nice and people want to be out there but it seems like an afterthought. The furniture is very awkward and oversized for the space. The addition of an outdoor sofa, a coffee table, some appropriately sized dining chairs & table would really make it a much nicer place to be. Also, the photos show a back yard, but it really isn't the case. The backyard is split between 2 other homes and it mostly weeds, not very well cared for. We probably spent more time in the yard because we had a dog with us. Little Thoughtful Touches: The addition of some beach essentials like chairs, umbrella, towels, etc. would go a long way. We never found any beach towels, we looked all over the home but only found white bath towels, luckily we brought our own. Bikes would have been nice, though we also brought our own. And, it would have been nice if the owners had gathered some of the info from the Tourist Info Office and put some brochures in the house, or better yet, put together a guide to the island for visitors. Overall we enjoyed our stay! It is a great house. This place would be just perfect with the addition of a few small things.
Overall, a good place to stay. The only reason it doesn't earn 5 stars is due to overall age of home
Great location which was accessible to the Village and beaches. Parking was a bit questionable, with no designated parking spaces. We were advised to park behind the dilapidated garage, or on the street under the trees. The rooftop sitting area offered great views and a fantastic breeze at night. The house stayed nice and cool thanks to a wonderfully functioning A/C. Overall, a great place to stay for our week away.
Great location and comfortable space
The location is great, just a minute to the beach. Plus, the living space is comfortable, quiet, and suitable for 4-6 people. The porch is perfect when it rains or when the sun is blisteringly hot and the roof deck is great in the evening, when things cool down. Convenient to almost everything. I hope to be back in April.
Amazing location and Great House!
We loved our stay! Location cannot be beat. One minute walk to the beach and 10 minute walk to the Village. Walked to dinner every night. This section of the beach was considerably LESS crowded than other areas. House had everything we needed. Beds were comfortable. Owners are very responsive and quick to resolve any issues - we had a minor problem with the lock, and they were on it! We will stay again soon!
Fantastic beach cottage
Charming beach cottage one lot back from the beach. Proximity to the beach is really nice and both the main level porch and rooftop deck are great to use in nice weather. Beds are comfortable and kitchen is nicely stocked. Would definitely rent again.
Charming & very comfortable
Seaside Cottage was everything it claimed. Steps to the beach. A top deck and front porch for relaxing and viewing the freighters steaming by. An interior that was decorated very fashionably, all while retaining the feel of the original cottage. We loved being here and intend to stay again!
Location, location, location
This quaint jewel was perfect for our family of 4 and our pup. House was perfect - loved all the antiques and nice touches. Jennifer was quick to answer any questions that arose during our booking & stay. Best part were the ocean & beach views & being able to be on the beach in less than 30 seconds. Also it's less than a 10 min walk to the village. Nice big beach even during high tide. Thanks for a wonderful family vacation!
Cozy cottage and nicely tucked away
We loved our stay here. Seaside Cottage is perfectly located on St. Simon's. The beach is a one-minute walk from the front porch, and it's never really crowded. At low tide, you can walk on the beach all the way to the village, or all the way up to East Beach and beyond. The cottage reminds you of the old days at St. Simon's, and thankfully the owners have kept it pristine and in its original layout. The kitchen is modern, well-planned and very functional.
The house was wonderful - cozy, uniquely furnished, perfect size for a family or group of 4. The location is awesome - right at the beach access, and a very short walk to the beach. A beautiful beach, island, and village. The owners were a pleasure regarding communication and questions! We hope to be back again soon!
Our stay at Seaside Cottage was nothing short of perfect! This cottage is incredibly well appointed with everything one could need for a spectacular vacation. The towels, sheets, kitchen and bath amenities are top quality and the beds are incredibly comfortable. We spent many hours on the front porch swinging and enjoying the ocean breeze. Access to the ocean is right across the street and the section of the beach is perfect. We look forward to returning to Seaside Cottage as soon as possible!
This cottage is amazing!
Stayed in this beach cottage during our recent trip to St. Simon's Island. Very spacious and comfortable. Almost everything you could possibly need is supplied...including bikes. You truly just need your clothes and beach chairs! The location is perfect...a quick walk to town & local restaurants (be sure to try Half Shell and Southern Soul BBQ). The beach is literally steps away & always accessible (many beaches on St. Simon's disappear at high tide). The area is very quiet and family friendly. The covered front porch saved the day during several rain storms. Sat in the porch swing, read books & consumed beverages! The upper deck provided a beautiful view of the of the ocean. The owners are very helpful and quickly answer any questions you may have. Overall, a great experience. We rent through VRBO frequently and this cottage is now among our very favorite places we've stayed!
Great location & clean cottage.
Everything was as advertised. We would definitely stay here again.
Beautiful place and perfect location.
We absolutely loved the cottage. We spent a lot of time enjoying both porches. The cottage has everything you could want and need and is so comfortable.
The perfect beach cottage
If you are tired of cookie cutter condos with boring, over decorated rooms and no true beach feeling this is the place for you! It is a darling beach house that has been decorated with colorful phunky furniture and pictures all set against a sparkling white back ground of beadboard and white walls with lots of personality. It is about 30 yards from the beach, quiet, with a wonderful covered porch where you can eat breakfast, lunch and dinner and a rooftop deck where you can see the ocean and feel the breezes while you enjoy a cool drink. The kitchen is well equipped, the beds are comfortable and it has a huge flat screen tv with wifi for watching sports or movies. The owners live on the island and are very accommodating. The one negative is the poor customer service from VRBO. The link they sent to find the address did not work and we spent an hour on the phone with them trying to find the property. They never did tell us the address of the property. We finally reached the owners. You should also know they even have the location wrong on their ad. This is not the King and Prince ( a hotel/condo property) but is a free standing house. Now that we know how to get here this is the place for us in the future!
Steps from the beach!
If access to the beach is what your looking for then this beach cottage is for you. Great views, literally steps from the beach. Another wonderful time in St. Simons!
Your place was wonderful and perfect for two couples. We had a great time sitting on the top deck and enjoying the boats going by. We will be back! Thanks again.
