Palmetto Cottage – 116 Florence Street

Palmetto Cottage - 116 Florence Street

3 Bedrooms 2 Bathrooms Sleeps 8

Palmetto Cottage is one of the very few remaining original 1930’s beach cottages in the King City section of the village. The cottage is located within the block to the ocean on Florence Street and just a few minutes of a walk to the Village. Our charming cottage is nestled beneath massive Live Oak trees draped with Spanish moss and is the epitome of laid-back island living, that St Simons was known for in the 30’s and 40’s. Lovingly restored by the family whose great grandparents originally owned the land, Palmetto Cottage is full of original details and unique features that are nearly 100 years old complimented with modern convinces you expect. The renovation that added the loft bedroom kept the cottage feel while adding ample space for your guests. The back deck is perfect for a low country boil or use the beach shower after coming in from the water. Relax at the end of the night on the screened front porch and if it rains, you will love the cozy sounds of the rain on the metal roof. Combining 1930’s styling with 2000’s convinces, Palmetto Cottage is truly one of a kind.
Palmetto Cottage is the sister property to The Treehouse, sleeps 8 and walk to the Village

Enjoyed my ‘Porch Therapy’ in this beautiful cozy cottage under a canopy of Live Oaks! I’ll always choose this cottage!

The Palmetto Cottage was excellent! Such a cute little cottage, perfect for my entire family. The location was perfect too! It was easy to walk to shops or eat. We definitely will be booking again!

Guest Review

Screened porch was a bookworm paradise! Checking in and out was a simple process, the beds and pillows were comfy, the living/kitchen area was well laid-out and homey. We loved our stay at Palmetto Cottage and hope to return.

Felt like home from the time we arrived. The trees are beautiful and walk downtown made it very convenient. Access to garage also helped with beach gear. Loved our time at SSI.

We absolutely loved our stay at Palmetto Cottage. It was so comfortable, nicely furnished, amazing location - so close to the village - could walk to the pier, great restaurants, shops, but away from the crowds..Beautiful sunsets from the screen porch or at the end of Florence Street overlooking the ocean. One of our best getaways ever…

Amazing place! Rustic but super convenient! Tons of storage and within walking distance to everything! Loved the cottage feel! Highly recommend renting a golf cart if you have a larger vehicle. We will be back and would love to rent the Treehouse too! This place is a true gem. We said MULTIPLE TIMES we can’t believe how great this place is!

This cottage had all the charm of a house built almost 100 years ago but non of the negatives. It was comfortable and homey! My wife and I along with all 5 of our kids had plenty of room to relax, take walks, play board games and even cooked a crab dinner. The kitchen had more than enough of everything we needed. Great house. Great location. Very relaxing stay.

Our stay at Palmetto Cottage was one of the best trips to SSI I've ever had, and I've been going since I was a child. The location is perfect for walking to dinner or catching the sunrise or sunset at the public beach access just a few streets away. The character of this cottage is enhanced by the clean and comfortable decor, and the entire feel of the place is peaceful and cozy. Check in and checkout was a breeze. The instructions sent to me were sensible and easy to follow. We were all talking about how much we can't wait to come back! The beds were comfortable and appropriate for adults and older kids, but there were also great nooks for putting up a pack and play for small ones. We loved this place and will remember our stay for years to come!

Guest Review

This felt like a true home, not a cheaply decorated rental. It has a code make compatible with k-cups, or you can brew a pot. The beds were so comfy—all 3 of us thought so! There was an amazing screened in porch that faces the quiet street and the back yard is fully enclosed and feels private. It really was quiet and nice. The place was about 2 blocks from Mallery St, and the pier and all the shops and restaurants, but a Sandy beach would be a short drive away.

The Palmetto Cottage did not disappoint! Walkable to shops, restaurants and the ocean. The cottage is a great place to hangout with your family. I love how the owners kept all the original details of the cottage intact with the updated comforts. The screened in porch is a great place to read a book and relax. We would definitely stay here again!

This house is very comfortable and the porches are a high point. Pristine at arrival and spacious for our family, we loved our visit.

Guest Review

Quaint, updated cottage, easy walk to village, pier, restaurants, lighthouse. The cottage was very comfortable on a quiet street. Easy walk to beach access - beach available at low tide.

Guest Review

by Lisa
The setting of this cottage is beautiful. We felt like we were in a woodsy hollow covered by beautiful live oak trees. We really enjoyed having breakfast & reading on the screened in porch. The cottage offers lots of character & charm and is just a quick walk to town & the pier. The neighborhood is quiet and fun to walk or ride a bike around and take in the views of the surrounding lovely homes. I'll definitely book this cottage again in the future!

Great place, cool deck, everyone was helpful and professional. Place looks cooler in person, got some gasps from the kids when they walked in! So yea, definitely worth it.
