Stayed here with my in-laws and we were very impressed! Close to the beach, plenty of space, rooms were clean, and the number of bathrooms was awesome! Overall, nothing to complain about! Property is very family friendly and we will be back!
Great space for families!!
We had such a wonderful week in this home. It feels more like you are staying at a friend’s home than in a rental. There are several living spaces, so the parents and the teenagers have their own spaces. Kitchen had everything we needed, too! Great location, and the real estate agent was super responsive. Furniture was very comfortable! We will be heading back again!
We will definitely return to Watercolor soon! From the location a few steps from the beach to the convenience of having a private pool at the back door, this cottage was a great place to relax and unwind. We loved the charm of this house built in the 1930s, and appreciated the modern conveniences you have added. This is the kind of place where one could easily retreat and write a book, or bring the family and friends to make a bunch of beachy moments. (We rode bicycles until the dark finally forced us home, chased crabs on the beach, ate our meals by the pool – fun stuff.) The customer service was prompt and personal. You made us feel like guests in your home and you wanted us to have a good time. SSI was such an inviting setting. It has become our “happy place” and holds many sweet memories for us. We will be back to Watercolor often.
Beautiful house. Great place to stay on St Simons!
We decided to go to St. Simons for Spring break. We found this house and it was AMAZING. Very clean. It had everything we needed–towels, toilet paper, soaps, laundry detergent. The house was immaculate and the location!!! Oh my, the location! We were right on the beach in the very desirable East Beach. Quiet neighbors. We could walk to the beach. The pool was amazing. The rental company replied quickly to any questions. Three porches, two facing the beach. One facing the pool. The close-by beach area was very much for outdoor lovers with the tide changing often giving the landscape of the beach a different feel at different times of the day. Very private, not overpopulated area to enjoy your vacation. We hit the jackpot staying here! Thanks Wolfe cottage!!!!
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!
Low Country Beauty
This home is perfectly situated within the Sea Island gates on the river . The ability to watch sunsets over the river and marsh was exactly the relaxation we needed. It was well appointed and a perfect resting spot for our family . The location , use of golf cart , and ability to have access to the Sea Island gym and Beach Club pools and beaches made this a perfect vacation home. We will be back !
The perfect home by the sea!
We spent a chilly long weekend on SSI and couldn’t have felt more spoiled or at home in the Penthouse. From the beautiful cozy living room to the spacious master bedroom with views and sounds of the ocean below, this was truly our best experience on SSI yet. Enjoying coffee each morning basking in the sun on the balcony overlooking the beach was such a treat. A spectacular property and outstanding rental experience. We only wish we could’ve stayed longer!
The house is amazing! Very clean and well maintained, great ocean views, and close to everything.
One of the best ocean front homes we have experienced. Love seeing the dolphins feeding in the morning while we sit on the deck drinking coffee, watching the huge cargo ship come into port, and searching for shells on the beach! Shopping, restaurants, fishing pier, lighthouse, and parks are within 5 minute walking distance and Jekyll Island is just a short 15 minute drive for more great beaches and adventure.
Great house, great location
by Malene T. on 02/14/2020
We had a wonderful visit, the beach location was perfect for morning walks. There were only 2 of us but this house would be perfect for a large family. The kitchen was well equipped, beds were comfortable. The location is close to the lighthouse and an easy walk to downtown shops and restaurants. I would highly recommend this cottage and look forward to returning.
Fantastic house near town and beach
by Kenneth M. on 02/14/2020
Beautiful, well-furnished home just a short walk or bike ride to St. Simons restaurants and shops and a few blocks to one of the nicest, dog-friendly beaches on the east coast.
by Melissa C. on 02/14/2020
The location and the views are spectacular! And Sea Island never disappoints with all the activities. The unit was a good size with ample space for our party of 5. A great discovery!
by Raymond L. on 02/14/2020
House lived up to all expectations. Granddaughters loved the place.
Love this location
by bill h. on 02/14/2020
nicely decorated but mechanical issues. toilet in master needs repair. nest thermostat not working properly . If you like a door on your bathroom , this is not the place for you.
by Bethany O. on 02/14/2020
Beautiful older beach house in the perfect location one row back. Super short walk to the beach just across the street and around one driveway and around a quarter mile to town makes everything walkable which is what we did once we parked at the property we walked everywhere. Backyard/pool area was wonderful and in warmer weather would have been a great place to swim and sun but was a great place for afternoon drinks in the chillier December weather. Only drawback is a small kitchen/cooking space so if you are bringing folks who like to cook together and hang in the kitchen it is a tight space. Other than that perfect for us. One small issue but the property manager was super responsive and got right on it.
House was clean and common areas were roomy. The bunk room was smaller than expected, esp for teenag
by Susan S. on 02/14/2020
Overall it was a good fit for a family gathering. Location was convenient
Great location! Close to all activities on the island.
by John E. on 02/14/2020
Great time, large house for my large family. We rented the large house for everyone to stay in for my son's wedding that took place at Sea Island. It was a fun time!
Loved St. Simons Island
by Laurie C. on 02/14/2020
We had a fabulous experience at the East Beach rental! We were three couples & the house was everything we hoped for. Plenty of room for each couple to have privacy, plenty of common space for conversation, & perfect location for a walk on the beach. It was a short drive to the village & the pier where there were plenty of restaurants, shops, & benches to sit. Between people watching, gazing at the ocean, & visiting with friends, I would highly recommend a St Simons visit.
by Judy S. on 02/14/2020
We really enjoyed our stay on St. Simons in this condo. Everything we needed for our visit could be found at this condo. The beds are very comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked. The complex is quiet and safe with ample parking. We would definitely return.
Great Thanksgiving Getaway
by Yoshi D. on 02/14/2020
We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay in SSI during Thanksgiving break. Great location with an easy 2 minute walk to the beach and nice spacious home for family and friends!
Even better than advertised!
by Anonymous on 02/14/2020
We had a wonderful stay with our 10 family members of varying ages, from 6 years old to 70. The open concept kitchen is beautiful and extremely functional for multiple people doing prep work with ample seating for meals. The stunning ocean views from the kitchen, sitting area, and two of the bedrooms were our favorite part of the house. Kitchen was well-stocked, and the refrigerator was large enough to accommodate the food for our Thanksgiving meal. Although we were initially concerned about parking our 3 larger vehicles, parking was not a problem at all. We loved walking out the back door to view the sunrise in the morning and the relatively easy walk or very short drive to the park and restaurants. Looking forward to our next visit!
Donâ€™t Be Fooled By Front View!
by Kathy W. on 02/14/2020
There is nothing wrong with the front view of the house. But one cannot imagine the space of the interior from the outside view. My family gathers once a year at Thanksgiving. This was Home away from Home. We enjoyed everything about this rental. There are 4 toilets, 2 showers and a free standing tub. There was enough room to sleep 7 adults and 7 children - all in beds. We loved the details like a crib, toys and games, 2 refrigerators, fireplace and the pool. The pool was a lifesaver! Worth every penny to heat it too! Coming in from 14 degrees? Perfect! Sun is on the pool in the morning and the afternoons were open for the beach and Frozen II. Although there are many wonderful restaurants, we cooked all our meals. I took 10 beach towels and we used them all. (There are towels there). Because I live fairly close to the island, we took a turkey roasting rack&pan, two large pots and 2 roasting pans. Those were needed for our large gatherings. At home now and missing that fire place! Itâ€™s so family friendly and all the children said they like it so much theyâ€™d like to come back next year. So thatâ€™s our plan! Lord willing, see you again in 2020! EDIT HERE IF YOU WANT - We could not use the grill because the insides need replacing and thereâ€™s no propane tank.
Ideal in Every Way
by Peggy D. on 02/14/2020
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
by Danielle K. on 02/14/2020
Property was fabulous. Sea island is always a great time and this property was so convenient and spacious. The view was relaxing and surreal. I would definitely come back.
Bliss on the Beach
by Jennifer S. on 02/14/2020
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.
by Stephane G. on 02/14/2020
Beautiful home, great location, excellent hosts
by Katheryn T. on 02/14/2020
We had 10 days with four adults and one child in this lovely home; it was impeccably clean and furnished, and very comfortable. The hosts were incredibly responsive and helpful. It's in a great location, easy to walk to the beach, to the local park/playground, to rent a bike, to local restaurants etc. Thank you for a perfect stay!
Place was clean but people live/rent down stairs on bottom floor.
by Jessica P. on 02/14/2020
Clean place. Small kitchen and bathrooms. Bathrooms on bottom floor only for tiny people or children. Kitchen is only good for simple meals....tiny. Stairs are steep and dangerous for kids. My small dog couldnâ€™t get up the stairs to go in and out. Bottom ground floor is occupied by a â€œlong term renterâ€ according to management. I had to call management to find out why someone was parked in our parking space and thatâ€™s what I was told. The renter was very loud and had guess come in and out at all hours of the night. The renter was very loud even at 2:00 in the morning. I could here people talking yelling all night. The renters guest at one point was standing by our truck. It was all very strange. I left a message with management and havenâ€™t been called back.
Charming Beach Cottage
by Shirley B. on 02/14/2020
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.
great place to stay!
by Anne B. on 02/14/2020
This is a cute home in a great location. However, it could use a few updates--better mattresses in the bunk room, better pillows and towels, and only one clothes hangar could be found in the entire house!
Great property, close to everything!
by Tammy M. on 02/14/2020
Really loved the location, and everything about the property. Gorgeous sunrises, close to everything, biking to the beach was fun and easy. Great property. Would definitely book again and return to Sea Island!
Perfect home for couples weekend
by Callie C. on 02/14/2020
We stayed here for Georgia/Florida weekend with 4 couples. The house was in a great location, clean, spacious, and well equipped. We really loved that every bedroom had itâ€™s own bath. We will definitely be staying again in the future!!
Perfect family getaway.
by Laurie M. on 02/14/2020
The beach, pool and spacious, well-appointed home made our stay at St. Simons Island just perfect. Highly recommend.
Great autumn getaway
by Anonymous on 02/14/2020
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 Margaret H. on 02/14/2020
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.
East Beach house
by Sharon T. on 02/14/2020
We enjoyed our stay at the house
by Anonymous on 02/14/2020
The house is great and well stocked. It is a very short walk to the beach and close to restaurants and the pier. I did wish it had a better outdoor seating area.
by Tina M. on 02/14/2020
Seriously - the cleanest home I have ever stayed in! Wonderfully decorated and plenty of amenities. Great location - will rent again!
by John C. on 02/14/2020
It was nice but very small. 2 and 1/2 baths without a full size shower. Itâ€™s more of a beach cabin. Ceilings low and stairs are very tight. Had air but you need to use the window units in both bedrooms to keep it cool.
Close to easy beach access and a pool!
by Marsha L. on 02/14/2020
Comfortable rental and a great location! Very short walk to beach with easy access. One of our party has mobility issues but getting on the beach was no problem. Beautiful, clean pool. Property is well equipped and property manager was responsive and most helpful with a few minor issues and the property owner followed up. Close proximity to the village and pier area. Relaxing & Enjoyable!
by Melinda F. on 02/14/2020
The property was awesome. Our A/C went out and they were quick to get it corrected.. we did have an ant issue but overall everything was great
by Karen H. on 02/14/2020
Clean (most important to me!)! Quiet neighborhood conveniently located to pier and to beach access. Loved the giant oak and itâ€™s surrounding deck!
by Scott R. on 02/14/2020
Very Charming House... Great pool very close to beach and village. We will be back soon.
Charming, cozy, steps to the beach, perfect!!
by Liz M. on 02/14/2020
Absolutely adorable decor bordering between cozy vintage and beachy executive. Quiet location less than 2 minutes to public beach access and a ten minute walk to the edge of the Village. Very comfortable suite with a screened in porch for enjoying the ocean breezes, an ample closet and kitchenette, plus very comfortable bedding and a smart TV for ensuring Netflix and chill can keep going even at the beach. No complaints about the cottage whatsoever - just wish the neighbors in the unit in front of us would park in the obvious parking area by their unit and not the actual driveway (making it nearly impossible to drive in and out)! ?? Highly recommend and would definitely stay again.
A great place to stay
by Anne R. on 02/14/2020
The house was at a great location. It was welcoming and wonderfully decorated. The beds were comfortable and the living spaces made for great family gatherings. Communication with the property manager was good and timely. Our family enjoyed our stay and would rent this house again. Overall we were very pleased with our experience!
So cute. Great location.
by Brandolyn G. on 02/14/2020
Easy walk to pier and restaurants etc. Very quick walk to beach. BE WARNED: you may hafta share the driveway with others if they rent out the lil cottage by the pool.
by Wendy C. on 02/14/2020
This property was so clean and just was amazing!! We were impressed with the whole property. Easy access to the beach and although it was on a main highway fencing provided all the privacy you could ask for. Just a wonderful home to come back to after exploring the island
by Katherine C. on 02/14/2020
This gorgeous property and location exceeded all of our expectations. We will definitely be back!
Wonderful week at the beach
by todd s. on 02/14/2020
The treehouse was simply awesome. My kids and I loved staying there. While the home is totally updated and very nice, the tree really does make it special. I spent as much time as I could outside enjoying the deck. Morning coffee. Lunch. And then a cocktail at night. Super close to the beach - without actually being on the beach - and very close to the restaurants. I enjoyed it so much I canâ€™t wait to come back. And thatâ€™s not how I typically feel about most anywhere.
by Wendy S. on 02/14/2020
Clean and comfortable
by Susan B. on 02/14/2020
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!
Perfect get away!
by ame h. on 02/14/2020
It was such a cute place and very clean. We loved it!
by Elizabeth D. on 02/14/2020
Thank you for letting us share the beach with our dogs! We had a great time.
Lots of charm!
by Jim J. on 02/14/2020
We loved our stay in this charming cottage! It was in a great location being close to the village and the beach. It was clean and very comfortable. Communication with the owner/property manager was excellent from the initial booking through check-out. We would definitely rent this home again on future trips to SSI!
by Ed S. on 02/14/2020
This was one of the cleanest properties we have ever stayed at. Not only was it furnished with everything you could need, it was only a block from the beach. We will definitely make sure we stay at this property on our next visit.
by joannie g. on 02/14/2020
Great getaway for 2!
by Kenneth L. on 02/14/2020
We really enjoyed the glorious week we had
by Kim N. on 02/14/2020
Rented this unit for a family reunion. Wonderfully stocked and amazing sunsets.
Great place to stay.
by Chris D. on 02/14/2020
Super clean and quite. Great place to enjoy the island.
Labor Day 2019
by Paul T. on 02/14/2020
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.
by Jaime W. on 02/14/2020
We enjoyed the immense spaciousness and location of this vacation home. Our children enjoyed having their own rooms with their own TV as well as individual bathrooms in each room. The beds were comfortable and everyone slept very well. We were the second people to have stayed in this home, so with that and it being a newly built home, we had a few minor issues that had to be addressed. We had to share some of our vacation time in the house while workers and the owner came through. We were thankful for the quick response, but it was also hard to relax when there were others in the space we purchased during our vacation. The salt water pool was a wonderful amenity and the kids enjoyed it a lot. Again, there were some issues with the pool, but someone was out within 30 minutes and had the pool ready for swimming. My only real complaint was there were contractors showing up at the house frequently and we weren't sure what they were doing. Our last day there, a work truck showed up and a guy dropped a hose in the pool and then left. We were going out on an adventure and when we came home the pool was completely overfilled. With the amount of water added, I was not sure if the chemicals were balanced so the kids could not swim. Because of the pool issues, we weren't able to use the pool as much as we would have liked to, but did enjoy the time we had.There were some minor details that were unexpected. The majority of the towels in the house, we discovered, had never been laundered. They were very nice and soft, however, the lack of laundering them prior to guests arriving was frustrating because it caused me to do extra laundry during vacation. And there was no where to hang them in the bathrooms, which had me laundering the entire time there. Privacy, we also felt, was lacking given the temporary, accordion paper blinds that were hung in the bedrooms and nothing on the windows in the main area. As stated before, I overlooked much of this because the house is beautiful and comfortable and we understood. We built our own home ourselves, so we know that there are initial kinks to work out. I do feel those things should have been worked out prior to renting to people on vacation.Overall, It's a BEAUTIFUL HOME with lovely curb appeal to stay in and I'm sure many of the kinks have been ironed out since our stay. And don't try to contact the rental company once you leave, they will not answer your calls or text.
Great location with easy beach access
by Saranya R. on 02/14/2020
Really enjoyed our stay. Perfect size, meticulously cleaned, small size family home at the end of the street with few 100 steps to the east beach.
by Michele H. on 02/14/2020
House is so cute , clean and very comfortable. Perfectly stocked with everything you need! Except maybe an outside swing ??????. Its in a great location to the beach... just mere steps. We love St. Simons and really enjoyed our stay. Only bummer was we brought our dog here to this particular location because East Beach was supposed to be dog friendly during summer season all day. The rules have changed to 6p to 9a. We had to drive over to Jekyll Island for the beach. Other then that the house is perfect and lighthouse vacations (Ryan) was really great to deal with. We really enjoyed our vacation.
by Chiara S. on 02/14/2020
Great place, accommodating managers, one block from beach!
by Rosie C. on 02/14/2020
Awesome townhouse close to everything. Golf cart, bikes etc. right there. Beautiful sunsets right from the living room. Canâ€™t wait to go back.
Great house and location
by leigh h. on 02/14/2020
Great house and location. Property clean and updated.
Cozy Cottage, can't beat location
by Tom M. on 02/14/2020
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!!!
We will be back!
by Kelley W. on 02/14/2020
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Being able to stay close to the Pier, ocean front, within walking distance of restaurants and stores was amazing! The condo unit was very nicely furnished. The beds were so comfortable! We had no complaints at all. We will be back to stay in this location. The owners made sure to keep in contact with us and make sure we had everything we needed and were comfortable. Thanks for making our stay perfect!
by Douglas H. on 02/14/2020
The house was all that it could be in the location, and design. We loved being located so very close to downtown and the beach. The house is very nicely decorated with new linens and kitchen utensils. We loved every part of it.. We did have a bit of any issue with the coolness of the lower bedrooms and would suggest perhaps taking a large fan for the last bedroom downstairs as the a/c does not cool it as well as the rest of the house. Management was very quick to answer our call but it is the design of the house and we are post-menopausal... Love the island !
Great East beach house!
by Amy N. on 02/14/2020
The house was a great size for the 7 of us. Extremely clean, updated, and very comfortable. Pool was a perfect temperature. Great location. A 5 minute walk to the beach - and a lovely one at that. I would highly recommend this house.
Family Beach Vacation
by Martha S. on 02/14/2020
The location is fantastic...steps to the beach and close to town. Loved the beautiful pool... perfect for all members of our family! Spacious room for our family, however, the furniture was soiled with wear and tear and could have been cleaned periodically throughout the season. The large kitchen/dining area was very nice. Response by owner and property manager was excellent and they took care of our requests immediately. We loved our first visit to St. Simons Island and hope to return!
Great Time in St. Simons!
by Amy F. on 02/14/2020
Watercolor was great and Ryan was awesome to work with! Great location and many amenities!!! If we ever make the truck back down from Jersey we would love to stay at Watercolor again! The house looked exactly as pictured and there are beautiful upgrades mixed with original charm.
Beautiful renovations made this a relaxing retreat!
by Andrea A. on 02/14/2020
We always enjoy our time in SSI, and we have stayed at a few different properties over the years. This was our favorite condo! The renovations made this a peaceful retreat for our family. (The updated tub in the guest bathroom made bathing three small kids so easy!) It is beautifully decorated. My only suggestion would be to perhaps add some blackout curtains in the guest bedroom so that kids will sleep a little later. The pool was nice (and clean!), and the beach next to the property was beautiful.
Not really a private deck
by Steve P. on 02/14/2020
We enjoyed the house a lot. We know they spray for bugs as there were several large dead ones laying around the house (not sure how good the housekeepers are). The ice machine is a fabulous touch. The property lacks hot water in the kitchen (the water didn't get hot enough to wash dishes in the dishwasher). The master shower is wonderful with a lot of pressure. Love the back porch and the view of the water. The location is great and close to the downtown area and the lighthouse. Regarding the "Private Deck" for sunning ... there was another group that claimed that they owned the deck and had the combination to the lock and also used it nightly with a group from 6-8 adults each night. That was disappointing. We didn't feel that it was our place to dispute it as they did have the combination to the lock. Other than that we DID enjoy the property.
A sweet beach couple's retreat
by Sabena M. on 02/14/2020
We loved the little cottage--perfect for a couple. Nice bedding and everything you need for a sweet, romantic stay.
Lovely vacation spot
by chelsea p. on 02/14/2020
Great vacation! Quiet, yet very close to everything! A few steps to the beach. Just down the street from Pier Village- lots to do!
by Sutton W. on 02/14/2020
We had a great time! Amazing place and location
Ready to go back again!
by Rick C. on 02/14/2020
This was the perfect house in the perfect location for our family! The house is nestled in the live oaks which provided enough shade to make the screened porch very pleasant, even in July, but still provided great views of the water and the tidal beach. The house is well furnished and we had everything we needed, including a wet bar with an ice machine and a wine fridge. Before the trip, we thought about renting bikes, but it was so close to the restaurants and shopping, we were able to easily walk. Even the lighthouse was just a block away! The best review came from our two hard-to-please teenagers who said they want to go back again!
Nantucket home on St. Simons
by Anonymous on 02/14/2020
A beautiful New England-styled house just across the street from the beach and within walking distance of the village. A nice set up with one bedroom and bath on the ground level and two upstairs. A perfect-sized pool for when you just want to cool down with a drink on hand. Good for families and friends with the pool house providing extra room for additional cost.
by Jason B. on 02/14/2020
This place was great! It met the needs of my girlfriend and I perfectly for the relaxing trip we wanted. The beach is literally across the street, and some pretty fantastic fried chicken is only a couple blocks walk, next to the ice cream place! Shopping and other dining is only a couple blocks further. It's private, the A/C worked very well, and we were not disturbed once by anything outside. I highly recommend!
by Todd H. on 02/14/2020
Wonderful location great architecture really enjoyed ourselves
by Linda U. on 02/14/2020
Family enjoyed the property and its location a lot.
Clearly paradise on earth
by Ted P. on 02/14/2020
We are, were, a faithful OBX family. This place changed that. Saint Simon island was beautiful. The house was everything it looks like and pet friendly to boot. The naval maritime decor was great, very interesting. The kitchen is large and open. The bedrooms big and bright. But the pool, oh the pool. It was the most used thing in the house. See, the ocean water was very warm. Nice to go in but very warm. The salt water pool was cool, so refreshing , we were in it night and day. The beach is huge. At low tide probably 100 yards wide. The sand soft, warm, plentiful and miles of it. The beachfront and town is so different than the OBX. Quiet and not commercialized. The town was a very short walk down tree covered streets. Spanish moss hanging everywhere. It really made you feel like you went 100 years back in time. We are so looking forward to a return trip next year and for years to come. There is so much to do and see that we feel we havenâ€™t even scratched the surface.
Great Cottage for a Stay at St. Simons
by Brad R. on 02/14/2020
This is an excellent house for a beach trip. The location is convenient to the beach as well as the village. The pool in the back yard is wonderful. All in all we would stay here again and plan on it next year.
Location, location, location!
by Sherry M. on 02/14/2020
We were able to walk everywhere that we wanted to go for food, shopping and the beach. The house is in need of some updating and deep cleaning, but the space is wonderful for a family. Overall, we enjoyed our stay here for a relaxing few day vacation.
Beautiful Inside and Out!
by Karen S. on 02/14/2020
We had a wonderful stay at the tree House. The house was beautiful, the neighborhood was picturesque and quiet, the proximity to the beach was convenient. Everything was just wonderful! A great place to unplug!
Wonderful Condo & experience!
by Heather D. on 02/14/2020
My family and I have been going to Saint Simons and staying at Beach club for almost 10 years now. In that time we have stayed in 10 different units varying in size, and we can say this was either our #1 or #2! (To be fair, the competing unit was on the 3rd floor so the view was a tad better but thatâ€™s the only thing edging it out!)The beds were all comfortable, the kitchen was well stocked and the living room set was very cozy! You can have coffee on the deck with views of the garden and ocean too! You can tell the owners stay here themselves and have loved it - this is not just an investment property! The new pool and pool deck are incredible and itâ€™s a very short walk (through the garden and pool) to a very expansive beach!We worked with lighthouse realty and they were hands down the best rental company Iâ€™ve ever used! Very responsive and on top of everything! They let us know as soon as the condo was ready for check in (it was early!) and then checked on us later to make sure we settled in okay. We didnâ€™t have any maintenance or cleaning issues but Iâ€™m certain that if we did, they would have been quick to respond. A few hours after our departure I realized Iâ€™d left some electronics - I reached out and they got back to me very quickly and also got someone to the condo to find them for us! Never seemed bothered or put out by my forgetfulness either All in all, it was a fantastic experience and we hope to book again next year!
Fun and relaxing
by Louise S. on 02/14/2020
The condos are great and in a wonderful location. My only suggestion is more parking but I realize that is limited due to space. My family will certainly stay here again in the future.
Awesome beach house!!
by Nikki R. on 02/14/2020
We had an incredible time! Property was spacious, incredibly clean, and exactly as advertised. I wish it was a little closer to the ocean but otherwise it was completely perfect!
by Grady P. on 02/14/2020
Listing was exactly as described. Very clean. Communication with the management was great. Very responsive. No complaints at all and I would definitely use them again. 5*
Great time at the River Club
by jason p. on 02/14/2020
Excellent location, spacious townhome with all amenities included. Comfortable beds, everything you can think of comes with the unit. Kids loved riding in the golf cart, using the boogie boards at the beach and fishing off the dock with rods in the garage. We will be back!
Amazing house and lication
by Marie C. on 02/14/2020
If we could give this six stars on a scale of 1 to 5 we would. We spend hours on the pier/deck watching dolphins and the tide come in and go out. The screened porch was amazing And the location could not be more perfect. We will definitely be back!
Excellent location, Great Home
by Jennifer O. on 02/14/2020
This Rental was fantastic for our family to get together. Clean, large kitchen that had everything we needed, pool was great for the hot summer days. Large doining room table for board games and cards at night, bedrooms clean and lots of storage space. Short walk to Mallory park and town. Lots of parking out front. Owner very helpful when contacted. We will be back!!
Cute little place, great location
by Kerri E. on 02/14/2020
Our family of 4 had a wonderful stay. Very cute cottage, with plenty of rooms and bathrooms for us all. The pool was a great option for us - gave my kiddos a good alternative to the beach, which is only a short walk (block away) and about a 10 minute walk into town .We enjoyed our stay and would recommend.Important to note - there are no beach towels, chairs or an umbrella provided with this property, so make sure to buy or bring your own.
Beautiful home, perfect location
by Laurie B. on 02/14/2020
The house was conveniently located in walking distance to beach and a short drive to all restaurants and shops. Will definitely be back!
by Meghan M. on 02/14/2020
This house is fabulous. Pool is great. Location is awesome- just cross the street to beach which isn't crowded. Walk to village. House is beautiful and comfortable- best spot is the sun porch at front as you can see the water from the sofa. You do share the driveway with the guesthouse in the back but that was fine. If you had 2 families, you could get the main house and guest house too which would be fun.
Great 3 day beach trip
by Belinda C. on 02/14/2020
This place was the perfect size for the 4 of us. The kitchen was very well stocked. It was a very short walk to the beach. There are great restaurants very close.
Great spot for a convenient stay.
by Mike F. on 02/14/2020
Excellent experience! This spot was perfectly situated a short walk to the beach and just close enough to the village shopping and restaurants. I was in town during the summer school hours. I can see that the location next to a school might be a deterrent if you are looking to sleep in during the school year. However, as an early riser, I had no issues at all. Great place for me, and I'll certainly be back!
Amazing home and stay!!
by Brittany B. on 02/14/2020
We absolutely loved having our family vacation here! The house is very accommodating for a large family. Ton of space to relax. Itâ€™s a few quick steps to the beach. It ook a little while to get the upstairs to cool off but was fine by the time we went to sleep each night. Itâ€™s really close to restaurants and shops. Perfect neighborhood to ride bikes. We canâ€™t wait to come back again!! Highly recommend. 🙂
Our stay at Conch Shell
by jen b. on 02/14/2020
Upon opening the door we were all hit with strong odor that was a mixture of heavy cleaning supplies and mildew. The smell stayed into the night. My family was tired from drive but myself and my daughter were both bothered into the night by the smells. I reached out the one of the property managers and he seemed receptive but really offered no solution at that time. Communication and resolution was spotty over the next 24hrs. I was then told they could bring in an air purifier. At that time, the smell had either dissipated/we became used to it. Other serious issues with the property became apparent. Neither of the upstairs bedroom doors could be shut properly so neither could lock. That made it a serious hazard for my young toddler and the stairs. I had to be hyper vigilant the entire time. The doors both open out into the hall so I had to have someone place a heavy suitcase in front of the door and then had to have them remove it to leave the room. Very irritating. Also the shower/tub set up in one of the bathrooms was dangerous and gross. The shower liner was a thin cheap plastic way too long and it made it a very dangerous slip hazard during entering and exiting the shower. Also the floor beneath the shower was warped from water. That could be possibly a source of the bad smell. Above one of the beds upstairs there was a small opening into the attic space. Every time you opened the door to that room, because of the strong air flow when the A/C was running, it would pull the door and cause that little attic space to pop up. When that happened mouse poop and random dried leaves would fall onto the bed below. It was nice to be close to the beach but the gross factors definitely outweighed the beach proximity. I would not recommend this house to any friends or family.
by stephen p. on 02/14/2020
Ideal place to stay if you like a VERY SHORT walk to the Beach and to great food. We'll deff stay there again the next time we head to SSI
The perfect beach cottage
by Rhonda G. on 02/14/2020
The cottage was wonderful. Everything was lovely. We were all very impressed with the cleanliness of the cottage and the beautiful decor. We had a wonderful few days with the children and grandchildren and the location was convenient to everything. I wouldn't change a thing. I do tip my hat to the housekeeper. Everything was in shipshape.
Location, location, location!!!
by Katie K. on 02/14/2020
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!!
Perfect Beach Getaway!
by HOLLY S. on 02/14/2020
The property is a breath of fresh air. It is bright, beachy, open, and has lots of room. It is homey, clean and all of the furniture and decorations are nice. The upstairs area is huge. The upstairs bed is a king and is very comfortable with lots of pillows. The upstairs bathroom area has a very nice tile shower, toilet area, and then a large jacuzzi tub. There are two separate vanity areas. The robes were a nice touch. The kitchen had everything I needed. The refrigerator had an ice maker and the coffee maker is a Keurig. Wifi and TVs worked well. There are three beach accesses within walking distance from the house-no more than a block away, or you can drive and park at two of the locations. You can also walk to several restaurants. I think knowing what beach supplies would be available would have been helpful. There were some beach towels upstairs and two beach chairs outside, but I wasn't sure if I could use them. I flew in from out of state so having access to a beach cooler and maybe a beach umbrella would have been nice. Overall, it was a perfect vacation and I look forward to staying there again.
Best location for 4th July fireworks
by John C. on 02/14/2020
Great time and location for everything St. Simons
Hope to stay here again!
by Mae l. on 02/14/2020
Property was great for our family vacation. Minutes from East Beach and very nice area.
by Victoria K. on 02/14/2020
This brand new house was perfect for our family of 6. There is plenty of space to spread out and relax. The location is an easy walk to the beach and having the pool was an added bonus. The only issue we had was the ice maker in the refrigerator does not make enough ice so grab a bag before you check in. We loved our time at this great house!
Perfect 4th of July
by Christy S. on 02/14/2020
Location, location, location! Short walk to the beach and village. Pool was the perfect size for our group. Not much parking unless you also rent the back cottage but other than that, it's perfect!
Great spot for a 4th of July getaway!
by Alec B. on 02/14/2020
We really lucked out finding this little gem for the entire week of July 4th. It was 2 blocks from the beach, allowed our pups, and was perfectly located close to restaurants, groceries and entertainment. We were able to walk to the pier for the fireworks, grab some food and a drink and then head straight to the beach!The place was clean, well stocked and equipped. Plus, my parents (who are a bit difficult to please) absolutely loved the place...big thank you for making my weekend truly stress free! Highly recommend and would definitely come back and stay here again.
by Patti B. on 02/14/2020
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 659 Cummings Lane. The house is bright, welcoming and extremely comfortable. This property is close to everything! We rented a golf cart and it was the perfect transportation for most places we wanted to go- I also enjoyed walking around the area. My teens are already asking me when we can go back. Successful beach trip!
by Jennifer R. on 02/14/2020
We had a wonderful stay at Pier Pointe. The view was magical, the condo was clean and the location was PERFECT. We will stay here again and can't wait to come back!
Extended family vacation
by MARY D. on 02/14/2020
Nice little house. There were 10 of us in all, 6 adults and 4 kids. Close to beaches and to shops and restaurants in town. If you are a group that requires lots of space for people to spread out this might not be the property for you. For us it was fine. Having the pool was great. We used it everyday multiple times. It was very clean. There were plenty of towels and soap and toilet paper etc. but there were only plates and bowls for 8. Property manager was readily available when needed. Would rent again but not with the number of Peter had.
by John M. on 02/14/2020
This is a wonderful property in a great location. The staff is friendly and courteous as well. The only ding is that the air filter hasn't been changed in 3-4 years and maintenance did not return to replace it like they said they would. Otherwise, ever call and question was promptly addressed or answered. I highly recommend.
We absolutely loved our stay!
by Amber M. on 02/14/2020
The communication was top notch and the neighborhood along with the home was all perfect. I highly recommend!
Wonderful Home for a big family!
by Michael M. on 02/14/2020
Great home! We have a big family (16) and the layout of this home was perfect. Back yard deck and pool weâ€™re a big plus. Management was terrific!
Dreamy East Beach Cottage
by Erin C. on 02/14/2020
What a lovely property! The pictures are pretty, but don't do the home justice. It is so warm and inviting, and it's as if the home can tell the story of years gone by, from a quieter, peaceful era. With plenty of modern upgrades, this original East Beach cottage on Saint Simons is sure to please families and medium groups traveling to this "Mayberry by the Sea!"
Perfect Family House
by jbunnbgc on 02/14/2020
Wonderful accommodations! This property was perfect for our whole family!
by Jimmy W. on 02/14/2020
This home is simply amazing! The owner was extremely helpful with everything and such a good person. The house is very close to the 3rd St. Public Beach Access, the walk from the road to the beach is a bit long but overall very close to the beach. The kitchen is perfect for cooking for your whole group. The bedrooms are all very roomy as well as the bathrooms. The private pool is such a relaxing feature after a long day on the beach! I canâ€™t say enough about the house, it was one of the most amazing houses Iâ€™ve ever stayed in.
by Lindsey K. on 02/14/2020
Perfect size space for two and ideal location. Looking forward to our next stay.
Our family enjoyed spending July 4th on SSI.
by Amy B. on 02/14/2020
We took a leap of faith booking this property at the last minute for the week of July 4th. Our children are 15 & 8. They asked to spend a week at a less crowded beach in a house rather than the condos we usually stay in at Hilton Head or Destin. I couldnâ€™t understand why it was still available, except that it only had a few recent reviews. The cottage was a little quirky, but precious. It was probably one of the most well equipped kitchens of any VRBO weâ€™ve ever stayed in - it even had a great pizza cutter and ice cream scoop. We had a few issues with the AC and housekeeping. Jonathan was kind, extremely apologetic and very accommodating to get matters resolved so we could enjoy our visit. The location was perfect - just across the street from two beach accesses. The covered area in the back offered a place to clean off our beach gear and rinse off before going in each day. We had a wonderful time on SSI - itâ€™s our new favorite beach vacation spot!
by Minnette S. on 02/14/2020
Very nice and cozy. Perfect for a couple. Location is great, just across the street from a nice stretch of the beach.
Sweet, comfy cottage..
by Jessica E. on 02/14/2020
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.)
The condo was very cute! Loved the location to the beach.
by Lolica W. on 02/14/2020
My experience renting this unit was very good. I would rent from them again.
Incredible experience!! First time I had ever booked VRBO!! Will definitely be back!!!!!
by Jan B. on 02/14/2020
Family Vacation 2019
by Ginger B. on 02/14/2020
My family loved our vacation on Saint Simonâ€™s Island. Watercolorâ€™s location was very convenient to the beach, restaurants, and shopping. The house had a great beach cottage look and was large enough for my family. The pool was a good size for all ages. I highly recommend Watercolor!
by Laura S. on 02/14/2020
We enjoyed spending time on the balcony, in the pool and at the beach. The property was amazing. The walk to the beach was through a lush garden. We look forward to returning to the island and The Beach Club.
Amazing place! Also easy walk to the beach
by Camila Z. on 02/14/2020
Fantastic! Will be renting same place again
Beautiful home with great location
by Debbie C. on 02/14/2020
Any questions about property was answered in timely manner
Great Family Getaway
by Alicia C. on 02/14/2020
We spent a few days here relaxing and reconnecting with my husband who had been deployed. The kids loved being so close to the beach, even our 2 year old had an easy walk. The house was light and bright and the rooms were comfortable. It would have been nice to have a few more dishes to work with for a family of four, but the kitchen was well supplied with cooking tools. We walked to restaurants and were just a short drive from the grocery store and other attractions. We'd love to come back!
by Debra C. on 02/14/2020
Our stay was absolutely perfect. From the beautiful house and furnishings to the pool and outdoor shower everything was perfect. We are a family of 9 and there was room to spare. The small details of this house were so appreciated. We loved the beautiful plate settings and small decorations that made this feel like a home away from home. The beds and bedding were very comfortable and the amazing tub was a blessing at the end of a long day. The house was pristine and clean when we arrrived. We have been coming to the island for 6 years now and the moment we crossed the threshold we knew we had found our new favorite vacation house.
by Anonymous on 02/14/2020
We had a very relaxing stay on St Simon Island. Spent the day in the beach and pool area. Everything very convenient on the island. Lovely shopping and restaurants. The unit was perfect for us. We did a lot of cooking and everything we needed was provided. The decor was wonderful and enjoyed relaxing in the evening on the patio. Would love to visit the island again.
lovely condo, great location
by Susan P. on 02/14/2020
My family and I have stayed at the Beach Club many times and in many different units over the years. This condo - 121 - was very cleaned, nicely decorated, and well-furnished. The kitchen was super - I can't think of any dish or utensil that it didn't have! Obviously furnished as the owner's home...not just a rental. Hope to return to this same condo again - would choose it over others I have stayed in!
by Clea S. on 02/14/2020
This was our first stay in this particular property and we were very pleased. The house was really nice and comfortable. The pool was nice, clean with lots of comfortable seating. The bedrooms were spacious and the beds were very comfortable. A nice outdoor shower. The property manager was extremely helpful and checked in with us to make sure everything was alright. The TV package was very basic. Conveniently located to the beach and everything on the island. Very happy with our stay.
Looking forward to coming back soon
by Mindy B. on 02/14/2020
Would recommend this rental home to anyone who want to get away for some rest and relaxation. Owners were great to work with. Thanks again.
by Meredith B. on 02/14/2020
We had a great experience!
Perfect summer vacation
by Will T. on 02/14/2020
Great stay, would definitely recommend.
by Katlin F. on 02/14/2020
This was the first time staying at this location and we loved it!! The rooms were perfect. Kitchen had all that you would need.
Saint Simons Island Beach House
by Bonnie F. on 02/14/2020
This house was perfect for my family of 4 adults and 2 children under 5. It is within walking distance to restaurants and shopping. The kitchen is large with great appliances. But the best part is the amazing view from all the rear windows. Guests are only steps away from the beach, plus the pool is super nice.
Great place for a large family to hang.
by Lance G. on 02/14/2020
Great location! We had 11 and there was plenty of room. Pool was awesome!!!we will be back.
by Dana R. on 02/14/2020
I was disappointed after I paid the fee to take my dog that we had to take her back home or move elsewhere. After my daughter took her back home which was a 4 hour drive one way that there were several other pets in the complex. I have stayed here several times in the past and have seen pets. And as I said I paid extra and then this to happen. Other than that we enjoyed everything else.
by Michael R. on 02/14/2020
Super close to the beach, very modern place with everything that you need. Was nice to have a few chairs to use when we got to the beach. Owners called and left a cell number in case we had any issues and we thought that was a great touch of class.
Perfect little getaway
by Domenique E. on 02/14/2020
We were pleasantly surprised to learn about Saint Simons Island and all that it has to offer. This cottage is in a great location, just a block away from the beach and within miles of Pier Village. The house looks like it was renovated and fairly new . Itâ€™s super clean and the owner was very accommodating with suggestions of restaurants as well as checking in to make sure we got in already. I would highly recommend staying here! You will not be disappointed!
Great home in perfect location!
by Jason W. on 02/14/2020
Very modern and clean place to stay within a short bike ride to good food and places to see...very accommodating and perfect property
Great Place to stay with a family
by Kevin O. on 02/14/2020
This property was super nice to stay with my family. Honestly you could fit 10 people comfortably with the guest house. It was a bit too big for us but that is better than the alternative. The pool was great and everything was pretty much as advertised. The gentleman who managed the property was very nice and said he was available 24/7 after giving us his cell phone. Fortunately we never had to use him. The neighborhood was great and a short walk to the village, everything else was a quick bike ride or car ride away.
Fantastic vacation home
by marian n. on 02/14/2020
We have rented this home for 5 years and itâ€™s just perfect for our crew of 6. The owners are most accommodating and responsive. The home is well equipped with anything you could want/need. Perfectly located near to the beach/Cloister/Beach Club - itâ€™s a five minute walk. Canâ€™t wait to return next summer!
The best spot in town.
by Nicholas B. on 02/14/2020
The Condo and the process were great. The property is located right on the strip where all of the restaurants and shopping is. It so easy to park in the gated lot and just walk to everything that you could ever want to do. Beach access is also great and because of the way the tide works your beach is never crowded, you just have to time the low tide. We will definitely be coming back to St. Simons Island and staying in this condo.
The Adventure Team
by Maureen C. on 02/14/2020
My family and I had a great time at the cottage. Lots of room in the rental and close to all the hot spots. The neighborhood was quiet and peaceful. However, needs more towels for big families. It would be nice if the kitchen had a hand mixer for baking up a brownie or two. The mattress in one of the room is sinking in the middle so you might want to see about replacing it. The pool was great to have especially with the kids they really loved it. We loved Saint Simons and will return in the future
by Susan C. on 02/14/2020
Great time. Great town. Layout worked for our family. Only issue was cleanliness. Bathrooms, guest house and house ones needed to have floor right in front of shower and tub cleaned, they were filthy. Also hair on floor of guest house shower that wasn't ours. Both places had repair to walls that hadn't been painted after repair. Just looked bad.Would have been nice if lights in pool worked.
Fun in the Treehouse!
by Mark & Kellie W. on 02/14/2020
We enjoyed our stay at the treehouse, it was very clean and looked like the pictures. It was located next to the pier area and we could walk to a public beach access point with our pup. Over all, a very enjoyable property. Thank you to property manager Jonathan for making sure we had everything we needed. Hope to visit again soon! The Wards
by Jean R. on 02/14/2020
Very cute little cottage. I emphasis "little" because it is much smaller than it appears in the online photos! Not much room to move around in the main room. The location is great... beach access is right across the road. Landscaping and pool around the "main" cottage is pretty, although there are no views of anything out the windows of this unit. It was hard to regulate the temperature inside. The ac would blast cold air, then when it shut off it would get hot in a hurry, then repeat the cycle of cold/hot. So we were either freezing or hot! Overall though, a nice place to stay for a short visit.
Met and exceeded expectations.
by katrina k. on 02/14/2020
A positive experience.
by Elizabeth M. on 02/14/2020
This property was excellent. Everything that you could possibly need was there. Beautiful view. All beds were comfortable. Bathrooms were great size. Kitchen had everything you could need. PLENTY of room for our family. Recommending to friends and look forward to going back soon. great stay
Bithday Get Away
by Audrey M. on 02/14/2020
The property was as listed. The pictures were accurate. The location in regards to the beach access---EXCELLENT!!! We had no issues with our stay. The island is small and the house was located well within restaurants, gift shops and sight seeing locations. It was very hot, so we drove a couple of miles, parked and then explored the island and all it had to offer. The neighborhood was quiet even with the construction across the street. Lots of stairs, but we knew what to expect from the description and pictures--the elevator was a blessing to sent our belongings up to the third floor. I would definitely stay here again.
Charming, great location and well appointed!
by Stephany D. on 02/14/2020
Stayed here for a girls weekend and it was perfect! Convenient location to walk to downtown restaurants and shops. The house was comfortable, inviting and had everything we needed. I would love to come back during warmer weather with my family to take advantage of the beautiful pool!!
fun in St Simons
by Steve S. on 02/14/2020
Tasteful & Immaculate
by Jennifer J. on 02/14/2020
From the moment we pulled in and I first laid eyes on this home I was blown away. The home is very well maintained and has a clean, new feel. I went with a group of five girls for a getaway and there was plenty of space for us to spread out. I loved that there was a small â€œdenâ€ type seating area with a TV as well as a much larger living/family room-also with a TV. The kitchen is huge! The bedrooms are tastefully decorated with plenty of drawer space for unpacking personal belongings. The sheets were soft and comfy (I spent hours reading in bed! It was wonderful!) The bathrooms are beautiful with stone countertops and lots of light colors. We enjoyed gathering around the big table on their screened in porch talking late into the night. From miniature soaps and shampoos and plenty of hooks for towels and bathing suits in the bathroom to throw blankets in the family room...itâ€™s obvious these owners have put thought into the small details that make a house away from home feel like home. This was a wonderful stay for our group and we would love to return!
Quaint and Pleasant
by Teresa K. on 02/14/2020
Wonderful for a single person, or a couple with baby.Easy walk to beach early in the morning for sunrise. Close to village and shopping and restaurants!
Wonderful time in a 3 bedroom.
by Jack & Janis D. on 02/14/2020
Unit 121 was very clean and loved the way it was decorated. They had new furniture and the mattresses seemed new. We've stayed in many units and the mattresses in this unit were wonderful. It's so hard to get a mattress that feels like yours at home. We would highly recommend this unit for a great trip. The lights in the kitchen were not working but they were going to be installing new lighting in there after we left. They did prvide lamps for us.
by Anonymous on 02/14/2020
This house is immaculate! The finest finishes and furnishings helped make for a great week at SSI. Great location too. It was so nice we extended our stay 2 more nights. The manager, Jonathan, stopped by to ensure everything was perfect. Will definitely stay here again! Thanks. Tom
by Michele S. on 02/14/2020
Just 2 blocks from the beach, from King & Prince and Crab Trap. Compact and functional, nicely decorated and has everything you need.
Watermark, a hallmark of St. Simons
by Stacey M. on 02/14/2020
This was a lovely home and truly was exactly as the pictures portrayed. The owner responded quickly with our minor concerns. Our family enjoyed our stay immensely!!
Great stay in St. Simons
by Christie C. on 02/14/2020
We enjoyed our time visiting St. Simons. The location was great, walking distance to everything. We enjoyed spending time out on the back patio and in the pool! We would love to visit again!
Loved our time at Quartermans Cottage
by Sarah H. on 02/14/2020
Great property with plenty of room for our family of 8! We loved the location and ability to walk to the beach. House is old and quirky but itâ€™s charming and beautiful, and our kids loved it.

Great House!5/5 Stayed Nov 2016Augusta, GAVery clean. Very spacious. Multiple sitting areas. Owners very pleasant and easy to work with. Great location, walk everywhere. We plan on staying here again!
by Taylor on 02/10/2020
Wonderful House!5/5 Stayed Nov 2016We absolutely loved our stay! The house is clean and beautifully decorated. Everything is well kept and orderly. The screened front porch was the perfect spot for an early morning cup of coffee. There is ample seating and I loved the openness of the downstairs layout. There's also a small, windowless bunk room that is PERFECT for families with little ones who don't want the sun waking children at the crack of dawn. We didn't need the crib, but knowing there is one here makes this tasteful home even more charming and accommodating. We hope to be back soon!

Beautiful Immaculate Home5/5 Stayed Dec 2016This was our first experience in a home away from home. My husband, 3 children and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay... so much in fact the children didn't want to leave. The beach and restaurant choices are in walking distance. The beautiful pier (from which you can see Jekyll Island) is just a short drive away. It was great to take a stroll among the shops for souvenirs and stop for ice cream.

Beautiful House in a Wonderful Location!5/5 Stayed Feb 2017To start, the house is beautiful! It is spacious and has plenty of living spaces to sit and relax (which is rare for our family of 6!). My personal favorite is the courtyard with the overhanging oak trees. I loved to sit out on the porch, or the upstairs deck off of the master bedroom, and enjoy the trees. We have four kids and they also absolutely loved the house! My son enjoyed playing with the foosball table and, of course, we all loved either walking or riding bikes to the beach.The location is also great. It is a short walk (or bike ride if you like) to the beach , shops and restaurants, and only a mile from the pier village. We actually ended up walking to the pier village every evening to play at Neptune Park and grab some food!We all had a great time and would definitely stay here again!Published Feb 28, 2017

Perfect house, perfect spot!5/5 Stayed Mar 2017This is a great place to stay with a family or group! The bedrooms are spacious, and there is plenty of room for everyone without feeling cramped or too far away from each other. It's walking distance to the beach, perfect for mid-day bathroom breaks and cooler refills, and is close to lots of restaurants and shops. We will definitely be returning!Published Mar 21, 2017

The perfect vacation home in the perfect location5/5 Stayed Apr 2017WOW doesn't begin to describe this home. Nestled under huge Live Oak trees, surrounded by a wall that gives privacy to the courtyard we found the perfect place to unwind. The grandkids were able to play in complete safety in the courtyard and our 7 year old grandson thought the kids bunk room was "the coolest room ever". The home is beautiful and comfortable. Multiple seating areas in the front and back, on a screened porch and in the courtyard by a soothing fountain gives all members of the family a place to hang out. I read 2.5 books in 4 days sitting outdoors listening to the fountain while I nursed my favorite adult beverage. The bikes were perfect for us to use to explore the gorgeous architecture and gardens. The beach is a block away and shopping and wonderful restaurants are just minutes away. I have always preferred mountain vacations but St. Simons may have changed my mind. I'd return here over and over.

STOP LOOKING! This place is perfection5/5 Stayed Apr 2017AMAZING! You have found your next vacation home, STOP LOOKING!! This house is the picture of perfection. Best house I have ever rented for any vacation. From location to amenities (on premises). We packed our personal items and the rest was there awaiting us, from bikes to coolers to beach accessories, etc.. Couldn't have asked for a more gracious home owner either. Dealing with her was such a pleasurable experience overall....we will definitely be going back soon...

Family Getaway Dream!5/5 Stayed Apr 2017We very much enjoyed our weekend stay in St. Simon's. The house is perfect for families. I've stayed in many vacation homes that promise amenities, but this one really delivers. From the bikes and ample beach chairs, down to the cart to lug it all to the water...everything was new, clean, and comfortable. The house comes well equipped with everything you could need for your weekend. The location is perfect, just a short walk to the beach and places to eat. We never even moved the car once we got there, just walked or biked everywhere. I highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a spacious and comfortable vacation home.

Wonderful home!5/5 Stayed May 2017.We really enjoyed this home. It was very spacious which was great when you have children. It was clean and the home was equipped with all the cooking, living, and beach necessities needed to accommodate us. We would all highly recommend this home to anyone who has kids. It was within walking distance to restaurants, beach, and park. We really loved our stay!

Big, beautiful home for memorable family vacation5/5 Stayed Jun 2017This home is spacious and clean with plenty of room for the seven of us to eat, sleep, and bathe comfortably. It is well decorated and just a two-minute walk to the beach and the Crab Trap, our family must-eat-at-restaurant. Communicating with the owners was easy, and it was easy to access entry to the house once we arrived. Very nice washer/dryer for extended stays. The kitchen is huge as is the master suite area, a nice retreat. Would definitely stay here again.

Spacious Downstairs! Great bathrooms! Lovely Porch!4/5 Stayed Jun 2017Overall great experience and would rent here again!Although, it's not a 4 bedroom... the bunk beds are in what was a his/hers master bedroom closet, therefore the master bedroom doesn't have a true door to have separation (grandparents stayed in it). And for a safety factor we had to be extra cautious with kids; balcony door and fireplace etc.Master is obscenely huge and could even fit another bed/pull out couch for extra sleeping.House includes toddler bed & crib which was great for our family!The downstairs was lovely, especially with the back sitting area which we enjoyed daily :)Parking got complex even with 3 cars (one always blocked in)-- luckily public parking is closeby!Loved the proximity to a couple restaurants! Loved the spacious bathrooms & all the chairs/tent/etc that came along with this house. OH and can't forget the incredibly quaint fountain & courtyard!

Spacious rental with a great location4/5 Stayed Jul 2017Atlanta, GAWe really enjoyed our weekend in this home! Its spacious and was so nice to have so many things provided that we would need (beach chairs, boogie boards, carts, bikes, kitchen necessities, etc). Its a super easy 5 minute walk to the beach. The only negative thing is that the layout of the master suite with the bathroom/bunk room mixed in was a little wonky. Its not a huge drawback but would be more functional for guests if the owners would put a door separating the master bedroom from the hallway with the bathroom & bunk room. Overall, a great home!

Great family house5/5 Stayed Sep 2017This was the perfect house to stay at with our 4 boys. Very spacious and clean with plenty of places to sleep. Great location to the beach, owner has lots of beach toys (chairs, boogie boards, umbrellas) plenty to do inside and outside!

Plenty of Room Nice Layout Great Location5/5 Stayed Mar 2018The title of the review pretty much says it all. The house was very clean, beds comfortable and plenty of room. The layout was great for hanging out playing foosball getting loud downstairs while not disturbing anyone who wanted to sleep upstairs. Very quick walk to the beach, restaurants and little shops. We would stay here again.

We will be back to enjoy again!!!!
Spacious & Comfortable
by Karen C. on 05/29/2019
I booked this condo for a last minute Spring Break trip with my 3 teens. The condo was so spacious, all of the furniture was extremely comfortable and the kitchen had everything you could possibly need to prepare meals. Plus the unit was very quiet, we never heard neighbors and we all slept great. The shower in the master suite was a favorite with us all.......so spacious and great water pressure!!The location was great and made it easy to go back and forth to the beach. One day we rented bikes from the front office and every day we played tennis (using our own equipment)Overall, our stay was a huge success.
Brief getaway to st. simons
by mike k. on 05/29/2019
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.
A Slice of relaxation at East Beach
by Geoffrey S. on 05/29/2019
This beach house was absolutely amazing. It had everything from bikes, chairs, pool toys and all amenities inside as well. Dishes, pots and pans, coffee maker, toaster, Keurig, microwave, washer & dryer all provided. It was clean, beautifully decorated and very inviting. Ryan, the property manager, was very nice and accommodating and I would highly recommend this rental property if you plan on visiting St. Simons Island; I assure you, you will be very pleased and will want to return.

Great little spot
by Bob M. on 05/29/2019
So our stay was nice...great location. Guests should know there is a school playground directly behind the cottage so sleeping in during school months will be tough. Odd mix of furniture but it worked. Owners need to provide a spot to clean sand off from beach. The place was clean. Everything worked. Had to buy hangers. Overall we liked it. We are older and pretty mellow so it was fine for us and looking forward to going back..
Wonderful Family Fun
by Eva B. on 05/29/2019
Would definitely stay here again. Only suggestion is for room darkening shades or curtains, so bright in the bedrooms at daybreak. That would not keep my family from staying again though. The pool was huge! Great for families!

Wonderful weekend at Water's Edge
by Laura C. on 05/29/2019
We stayed at Water's Edge for a long weekend while we were in town for a wedding. The house was great -- we had 10 adults and were very comfortable. The kitchen has all the essentials and the beds were extremely comfortable (which is not all that common for rental properties in my experience). We sat by the pool both afternoons and the beach was a short walk away. Ryan was very easy to communicate with and resolved the only minor issue we had incredibly quickly. I recommend this property and would definitely stay here again in the future.
by Leigh N. on 05/29/2019
We enjoyed our stay at the Treehouse. The house was very clean and is convenient to the beach (less than 5 minute walk). We enjoyed the porch and appreciated the shade from the large oak tree. All of the furnishings were great. We will definitely return to this property!

Favorite Vacation Spot
by Allyson Y. on 03/26/2019
This beautiful "home away from home" vacation spot is my new favorite place to be. The condo is warm and inviting with great furniture that's perfect for the beach but is tastefully designed. We cooked at home, went out to the amazing restaurants, walked miles on the beach and watched amazing sunsets. The location can't be beat. I love to walk everywhere and not have to drive. Can't wait to book my next vacation at this location. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home.

This is such a great play to stay in St. Simons Island. I parked my car when I arrived and never had to use it again. You can walk to everything and the views from the balcony make you never want to leave! The unit is appointed with everything you need and very new, high end furnishings. I cant imagine a better place to stay when visiting SSI. I will definitely be back!
Love the place and the location.

First off, the 3 bedroom condo was beautiful. Modern appliances, comfortable well maintained furniture, and very comfortable beds. Everything was clean, master bedroom has its own bathroom. The other bedrooms share a beautiful bathroom. Very nice outdoor patio and seating with view of pond. Second, 4/10 of a mile to walk to town through a park with pickle ball courts, baseball field, and playground. Everyone in town friendly, food was fantastic. Highly recommend this place. In fact family down there now enjoying sun, weather and food.

by Jonathan S. on 03/26/2019
From the moment we walked in, we were blown away! It was obvious that the owner has put a lot of love into this house. It is a classy, vintage beach cottage with old-school charm and a fabulous renovation. The beds were comfortable; the sheets were soft, and the beach and village were just a short walk away. The beach is across the street! You can literally see the water from the front steps! My family and I will be back! Thank you, Lighthouse! You guys were absolutely awesome, too!
Great cottage for multiple young families or just
by Cynthia S. on 03/26/2019
Water Lily is a wonderful St Simons cottage, super close to the beach, with everything you need for 1-3 young families with children or just adults. The home is clean, comfortable, and beautifully decorated as a bright, St Simons Beach Cottage. The beds are comfortable and there are plenty of them. With two and a half baths, everyone can get showers or baths quickly. The bunk room is far enough from the living area and the deck for children to sleep and adults to enjoy themselves. Everything is clean and in working order. There is room for beach bag storage in the laundry room, or on the back deck. The deck is large and has a nice table for dining outside by the pool. There are even bikes available if you'd like to ride to the village. The owners have thought of everything! The neighborhood is safe and quiet; wonderful for walking or biking; super close to the village or the beach. The owner was thoughtful, pleasant and quick to respond. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be back!

This home is perfectly situated within the Sea Island gates on the river . The ability to watch sunsets over the river and marsh was exactly the relaxation we needed. It was well appointed and a perfect resting spot for our family . The location , use of golf cart , and ability to have access to the Sea Island gym and Beach Club pools and beaches made this a perfect vacation home . We will be back !

by Karen C. on 03/26/2019
We will definitely return to Watercolor soon! From the location a few steps from the beach to the convenience of having a private pool at the back door, this cottage was a great place to relax and unwind. We loved the charm of this house built in the 1930s, and appreciated the modern conveniences you have added. This is the kind of place where one could easily retreat and write a book, or bring the family and friends to make a bunch of beachy moments. (We rode bicycles until the dark finally forced us home, chased crabs on the beach, ate our meals by the pool â€“ fun stuff.) The customer service was prompt and personal. You made us feel like guests in your home and you wanted us to have a good time.SSI was such an inviting setting. It has become our â€œhappy placeâ€ and holds many sweet memories for us. We will be back to Watercolor often.
Charming, comfortable beach home in great location
by Shanda V. on 03/26/2019
We found Watercolor to be even better than we expected. Our top priorities for a beach rental include proximity to the beach, comfortable beds, cleanliness, and good air conditioning. Watercolor had all of those things, and was also extremely charming, beautifully decorated, and close to the village. The house is definitely historic, but everything is up to date, so it's the perfect mix. We were all easily able to ride our bikes to restaurants and down to the pier and Neptune Park. Our 7 year old enjoyed riding over to Moo Cow Ice Cream (which we did multiple times). The beach access was right near the house, and the beach was not crowded at all. The kids loved the pool and the bunk beds! The owners are so pleasant and easy to work with. We are looking forward to returning to Watercolor again!

We so enjoyed our amazing views of the salt water marsh and wildlife each morning with coffee, such a peaceful setting! As grandparents, we found the condo to be perfect for family and toddlers, extremely comfy beds and well stocked kitchen, plus plenty of room for indoor games and outdoor bike riding. Tons of extra towels, how thoughtful! TV's galore, very good wifi service as well. The golf cart was a big hit! Elevator was nice to move suitcases up and down. Location is just perfect, only a few blocks to the Beach Club or Cloister. The owners are just so nice and helpful. We needed a little foot stool for the toddler bathroom , and they brought one to us right away! It was a grand vacation, and we can't wait to book our next visit!

The kitchen is well equipped, the beds were comfortable, and it was nicely-professionally decorationed. The use of the golf cart was a huge bonus for quick trips to the beach club and other areas on the island. We will definitely stay here again. The owner was quick to reply and answer any questions.
This is my happy place!

This is my second year renting this condo at the River Club! It is so comfortable and the condo has everything we need! The beds are super comfy and the views of the River cant be beat! The location is great as it allows my children to come and go on their own...The owners go above and beyond to meet your every need...they are great to work with! I look forward to renting this place for many years in the future!
Quaint house close to beach!
by Dawn C. on 03/26/2019
We enjoyed the Waterlily home! Having a private pool added a relaxing touch to the overall experience. If you have kids/teenagers, this is such a bonus for them to be able to hang out at night swimming under the lights! It was an easy walk to the beach, and is very close to the bigger public beach at the Coast Guard Station. The older charm with updated touches on the house make it an overall delightful place to stay at St. Simons Island.

The views are spectacular, the place is so spacious, well appointed with comfortable beds, and centrally located to enjoy all Sea Island has to offer! The Bankers are such nice people, and we are very grateful to discover this place to stay. We look forward to staying here for years to come.
Wonderful spring break getaway!
by Elizabeth S. on 03/26/2019
We had a wonderful visit to Sea Island. The villa was perfect for our needs. It was great that each bedroom had its own bathroom. The kitchen was extremely well appointed and nicely laid out. The views of the marsh and waterway were breathtaking, expecially at sunrise and sunset. We loved watching the tides come in and out. It was a quick walk to the beach and to the Cloister and Beach Club. The beds were super comfortable and the furnishings were lovely. We will be back!
Beautiful, Spacious beach house with relaxing charm, minutes from beach
by Michelle N. on 03/26/2019
My family and I (six of us) went down to St. Simons for 5 nights at this lovely home. From the moment we walked in the door, I could feel all the stress fall off! It is a gorgeous home, decorated with calm colors and beachy themes. The bedrooms and baths are spacious and were a perfect fit for each of us. We loved the great room and kitchen table that seats 8 where we could have easy access to both the kitchen and the TV. The outdoor screen porch was lovely to sit and relax in the Adirondack chairs. We enjoyed both morning coffee and evening drinks out there. We would have had our meals outside on the gorgeous dining table but it was a little chilly that week so we ate indoors. The kitchen was well-stocked and had everything we needed. St. Simons is a fun place to walk around. You can walk to the village and the pier from there or drive it and park. We spent one day where we walked to the beach, which is only a short distance and enjoyed it so much. It was not crowded or too busy at the time we went between Christmas and New Years. We enjoyed this home so much and look forward to coming back to St. Simons again.
Our favorite vacation spot
by Shanda V. on 03/26/2019
Our family had a wonderful time at Warermark. Close to the beach and the Village. We all loved the pool. Owners were easy to work with and the house is absolutely beautiful. We are picky about beds - we all slept comfortably without any trouble. We look forward to coming back next year!
wonderful view and location
by Laura G. on 03/26/2019
We stayed in the town home over Thanksgiving. There are 6 in our family with kids ages 12-18. We loved the home. The view was stunning. Unfortunately I had to spend one day in bed while sick but it was made better by the lovely view from the master bedroom. We ended up using the golf cart more than we thought that we would. My 2 teenage drivers loved the independence. The furnishings show a little wear but they were obviously high quality to begin with that it didn't matter. The home is tastefully decorated. The kitchen was also well stocked and we didn't have to run out to get things like hand soap, paper towels, toilet paper and K-cups.... all were graciously provided. My son appreciated the extra room sleeping on the air mattress away from all of his sisters. The mattress was a better quality one. All of the bedding and linens were high quality. The best part about this house was the view! We were also able to walk straight down 5th street to the beach. We had a lovely time. Thank you.
Fantastic location & comfortable house + a golf cart!
by Jennifer M. on 03/26/2019
The four of us enjoyed this property for our first-ever visit to Sea Island. The owners were very nice and quick to reply, even after Hurricane Matthew (Category 2) forced an evacuation the weekend before our visit. The house was clean and comfortable and the location was perfect. The bar is set high for our return trips.
by Anna R. on 03/26/2019
We had a wonderful week long vacation at the river club condo. The golf cart and proximity to the beach club and cloister was wonderful. The condo was bigger than we had imagined and the views were great. Would absolutely consider renting this condo again.
Cozy, quiet, and wonderful
by Holly W. on 03/26/2019
We loved "Watercolor"-- the perfect name for this quaint beach home. The description of being 156 steps is right on. We loved the proximity to the beach and couldn't believe how private it was. We oftentimes had the whole beach to ourselves. The pool at the house was wonderful! A saving grace on our hot August vacation days. The temperature was always perfect in the pool.The master bedroom was gorgeous! Upstairs bedrooms got a little warm though and couldn't compare to the master, but we had plenty of space and the kids loved both kids rooms.We had some issues with the Wi-fi cutting in and out, but upon calling the management company it was reset promptly for us each time.The owners did a really great job making this feel like home for anyone lucky enough to rent it.
Awesome RIVER CLUB vacation!
by Paula C. on 03/26/2019
We had a great vacation! The River Club condo was awesome and met my families every need for two weeks! The place was perfect for my family...the owners were very accommodating and a pleasure to work with throughout the process! The property was very well maintained and in perfect condition!The marsh views were spectacular from the back porch, watching the tide come in and out! I loved waking up to such a beautiful view from the Master Bedroom. The condo had everything we needed...great tvs, wifi, sound system, COMFY beds, bikes, and the golf cart was a plus! You can't beat the location of this River Club condo..only a few blocks from the beach club and hotel so it allowed my kids the freedom to ride their bikes and enjoy the island on their own!Definitely can't go wrong with this rental..already looking into renting this unit next summer!

Rating Details:The property manager was adequately helpful.The vacation rental was very clean.I was very happy with the location.I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.Reviewer Comments:The home on SSI was perfect for my husband, me, our daughter, our son-in-law, and our 3 young granddaughters. The kids thought the house was exactly what they were hoping for. It is a very short walk to the beach. There were no towels for the beach, so make sure to bring some, that was a hard one since we were flying. The pool was great, we swam in it several times. It has a great view from the upper balcony. We did have a problem in the kitchen, couldn't get the dishwasher to work, so called the management company, they called me back about 5 hours later, said they didn't know anything about it and would try to find out and let me know. Never heard back, then on top of that, tried to do the dishes in the kitchen sink and the drain from the beginning was slow, wasn't worried, since I had a d/w, then the last morning as I am trying to clean up everything, the drain stops up completely. No fun. Also, since I was flying in, was told that the shed had bikes and sand chairs and toys that we could use, we get there and the shed is locked. We would of been able to enjoy the beach a lot more if we had sand chairs. But, we did have a great time. The house was perfect except for the d/w and stopped up kitchen sink.

The Perfect Family Getaway!!

This townhouse was perfect for my family of 5. We loved the location, the golf cart, the bikes (especially the 3-wheeled bike!!), the beds (to die for!!!), the view of the marsh (breathtaking), I honestly could go on forever. We felt like we were staying at a friend's house for the weekend. It was clean and decorated beautifully. The kitchen was fully stocked with lots and lots of dishware, wineglasses, pots and pans, platters, etc. I really hope this stays on the rental market...We plan to come back next summer if not sooner!!
Property That Has Everything a Family Could Want or Need and MORE!
by Charlene P. on 03/26/2019
From the moment we crossed the threshold of Watercolor vacation rental property, our family fell instantly in love and felt the stress melt away. In short, we felt at home. It was so obvious the owners took great thought in every aspect of what a family would want and need and took great pride in making it a peaceful and tranquil getaway. Every room is beautifully decorated with the most updated and tasteful colors and decor. Our family of 6 had plenty of room to spread out, yet feel intimate when we would come together for meals in the dining room or out on the patio, hang out in the family room or gather by the pool.We loved that we could walk to the beach and didn't have to pack everything up and drive. If we forgot something or if someone wanted to go back to the house, they simply walked a few steps. With the exception of folks casually walking the beach at low tide, this section of exquisite beach felt completely private to us.Our family enjoyed riding bicycles around the quaint town of Saint Simons (yes, there were bikes provided for everyone in our family- parents and kids alike!), walking to the local ice cream parlor and shopping and dining out in the village. Afterwards, we enjoyed swimming all evening in the private pool which lit up with gemstone colors at night.These owners thought of everything a family could want or need for their stay: plenty of fresh towels and linens, washer/dryer, modern cookware and dishes, a gas stove, dishwasher and large refrigerator (all brand new, stainless steel), an outdoor grill, high-speed internet, and flat-screen TV's with cable television viewing. All seven beds were extremely comfortable for every member- especially the California King European-style platform bed with memory foam mattress in the master suite. Everyone had an incredible rest for the week and our family came away feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and most importantly- reconnected! Thanks to the careful attention to detail the owners provided, Watercolors was the little slice of beach heaven our family was looking for and owners Ryan and Crystal were extremely gracious and kind. They answered any questions we had and checked to make sure our family had everything we needed.We've stayed at other beach properties before, but none compare to amenities and overall pleasant experience of this one. If your family is looking for a perfect and private getaway with no worries of what you'll need away from home, this is it!
Beautiful home with great view.

by Mary Lynn E. on 03/26/2019
Beautifully restored. We loved the nautical theme. The kitchen is amazing with white marble and lots of cabinets and counter tops and all the right appliances. View to the ocean was adequate. There was very little beach when the tide was in. Would loved to have had a sitting area outside on beach side of house and a back door. It was within walking distance to the Village which was fun for all. The house was so comfortable and conducive to conversation, that my brother and sisters and I enjoyed sitting around visiting.

Quaint house nice big family room with all the amenities you need for a one or two week stay. Easy access to the beach and five minute walk to the village. 4 bedrroms three full baths one of which is in the master bedroom, the other is a shared bathroom with the other three bedrooms. There is a full loft in one of the bedrooms but there is no airflow in the loft, one full bathroom on the main floor. The kitchen is awesome with a huge convection oven and six burner stove top. Big island and garbage disposal. Pots and pans for most needs were provided as well. Full set of dishes and silverware and a very nice dishwasher also on this property. It was a great time with 8 adults and three children. Althogh there is a house in front of this one the ocean views while you sit in the sitting area are awesome. Everything was very nice and the owner answered all the questions we had prior to,oir visit. Hope you enjoy your sty there as much as we did....

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.

This was an amazing house that accommodated our party of 12 most comfortably. The house was exactly as pictured; spacious, clean and well-stocked with appliances and amenities such as shampoo, soaps and such. The check-in check-out was easy, and the location was perfect! It sits in a quiet neighborhood that is within walking distance of all the attractions on the island, including shops, restaurants, the lighthouse museum and the pier. Ryan was responsive in our communications and accommodating. I would recommend this house to anyone wanting a spacious, clean and convenient place to stay when visiting St. Simons.

Wonderful home just steps from the beach. Tastefully decorated and renovated . Very clean with all the space you will need for a large family or gathering. Updated kitchen and appliances and laundry. Owner has provided a very well stocked kitchen with silverware, dishes, pans etc. and also very nice linens (sheets and towels). Tv's and internet made it a great working vacation too. Great location, short distance to shops, restaurants, St. Simons lighthouse and museum. The sunsets are exceptional and people are so friendly and welcoming. Dog friendly community and beach. Additional public beach access just a few steps away. A new pool and deck were being finished when we were there and I am sure that space will be most enjoyable too! Short distance from Jekyll Island too for a day trip. You wont be disappointed and we cant wait to come back. Very accommodating and great owner to work with as well. Cant wait to schedule another trip ! thank you for the great experience and memories.

This unit is a good, practical place to stay. It has all the amenities and appointments that we wanted. It enabled us to enjoy our weekend at the beach without unwanted hassles. We cooked some meals in the unit, and enjoyed local restaurants within a five minute drive. This complex is located on the best part of St. Simon's beach. It doesn't get much better than this for our price range.
Above and beyond our expectations!
by Tiffany on 03/19/2019
The property was very clean and super-cute. Was within walking distance to lots of great restaurants and shops. Even walked to WWII museum from the lighthouse and found a great place for lunch along the way. Easy drive to Jekyll Island for fun bicycle tour. Property management was awesome! I accidentally turned on parental controls for tv remote, and they were able to research and solve the problem. Great place to stay! We will definitely try for this location again!!

New Year's Family Get Together
by Debbie on 03/19/2019
Overall, this property was great. Great location, comfortable and open living area for our family of 10 to sit together and watch the College Play Off Games along with eating family meals. The views of the water along with the close walking proximity to the Village Pier were absolutely fantastic!! We got to take plenty of pictures of 2 gorgeous sunsets on the beach along with 2 beautiful nights of breathtaking stars with the light at top of the lighthouse beaming out in multiple directions. It was a great family get together to ring in the New Years that was truly relaxing! We cooked together, shared many laughs, played multiple board games, took long walks along the beach, walked to the Pier multiple times and just chilled out in great company!! The only thing our family saw that was just so-so was that for as large as the kitchen is and with so many cabinets, most of them were empty. There was no blender, crock-pot, colander/strainer, meat thermometer, or mixer - all things that we were looking for when we were cooking meals. Also, sometimes the ice maker worked just fine, and other times, it did not work at all. We winded up buying 2 bags of ice for the 4 days that we were there. All in all this property was great for our family - we took away many great memories that were made over the New Year's Holiday weekend! Thank you Ryan for always being available and quick to answer all of our questions before we arrived. Most of ALL - a HUGE THANK YOU for adding a cable package that included ESPN so that we could watch the college play-offs when we arrived on Saturday late afternoon! We would definitely recommend this property to others for a nice, relaxing get away to St. Simon's Island!

The perfect beach cottage
by Susan on 02/18/2019
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!
Beautiful place and perfect location.

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!

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!
by April on 02/18/2019
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!
Cozy cottage and nicely tucked away
by Lee on 02/18/2019
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.

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!
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.
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.
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.
WOW!! We love this place!!

Every amenity (pool, park, tennis courts, workout room), bright, beautifully decorated and so very comfortable. We have so enjoyed the wonderful patio for sipping wine, eating dinner and just relaxing. The condo is spotless, the beds very comfortable, the bathrooms nicely updated and the kitchen well equipped. With the screen doors, we can hear the fountain and event the occasional ships horn for the sound/water, just a short 8 - 10 minute walk away. We have been able to park our car and simply make the short walk to the village, pier and beach. Such a gem. We had planned to stay for a 4 day weekend, but extended our stay to a full week. If we didn't absolutely have to get back north for an important appointment, we would definitely stay even longer. Thank you for sharing this magical place with us, we hope to be back again soon and often.
