Waterside – 829 Park Way

Waterside - 829 Park Way

2 Bedrooms 1 Bathrooms Sleeps 6 St Simons Island

Our little yellow cottage by the sea might not seem like anything special, except that its 90 steps to the best beach on St Simons and its freshly equipped with all our favorites.


THE SPACE

Allow me to give you a tour!
Location - we're right at the 6th street beach access point on St Simons - walking distance to the pier and "village", and 90 steps to the beach. There's only one house between us and the beach so you can see glimpses of beach from the house, and can hear waves crashing at night.

House - we have 2 comfy bedrooms and one basic bath. Honestly the kitchen, bath and laundry are nothing to write home about - but you'll find all are neat as a pin, stocked with brand new everything, and functional. More details of kitchen stock is below.

Primary Bedroom: The primary bedroom has a new comfy king bed, new sheets, and has sounds of the ocean at night. There's also a big Smart TV with 125+ Xfinity cable channels, a good Polk audio system with Alexa (stream whole-house audio or just in one room), and the bathroom is attached.

Bunk Room: Custom built-in big ole' bunk bed - queen bed on the bottom, climb the stairs to a twin, and pull out the hidden twin trundle as needed to sleep 4 comfortably. We also have a pack-n-play if you have tinies traveling. Again, fresh new comfy bedding, and the same technology as the master - big Smart TV, plenty of channels, premium audio system. The bunk room is also close to the bathroom.

Living and Dining Room: Open concept living and dining room. Here again, big smart TV, plenty of channels, premium audio system, and sounds of the ocean at high tide. The décor is new and causal - you can put your feet on the coffee table.

Screen porch: There's a screen porch on the front of the house - great spot to enjoy some bug-free outdoors and listen to the ocean.

Other features:
COLD AC - we went for the max when we replaced the AC system - it will keep you cool.

FAST WIFI - 200Mbs internet.

Ceiling fans and sound machines in both bedrooms.

?No stairs - ranch floor plan is one step up from the ground.

Everything's new - the house itself has been around since 1930 but its contents are brand new.

Baby essentials provided - pack-n-play and portable high chair

Kitchen has all the pots, pans, plates, silverware, etc. you'll need plus basic spices and oil.

Starter quantity of TP, shampoo, soap, dish and laundry detergent are provided.

Friendly local property manager to help as needed.

Why is our beach best? The 6th street beach is our favorite because we have plenty of beach even at high tide - go much closer to the village and you may not have beach at high tide. It's also not a crowded beach because there are not a bunch of big condos nearby and parking is very limited. We're so close you can just walk back to the house if you forgot something/need a break. No reason to haul you sun screen and snacks to the beach with you, you're so close.
Why near the village? The St Simons Pier Village is the social center of the island. Shops, Restaurants, ice cream parlors, and our iconic lighthouse are a short walk - we walk to the village for coffee and breakfast, then again for dinner and pick up an ice cream cone on the way back. It's about a 10-minute walk or 1-minute drive.

If you're looking for a comfortable spot with great beach access that you know is clean and cute, you've found it! And we won't bust your budget, so there's still room for that ice cream cone.


Located on the south end of the Island, St. Simons Pier Village district serves as the downtown social hub and is a popular destination for shopping, dining and gathering on the pier and nearby lighthouse, playground and picnic areas. Overlooking the ocean and Jekyll Island across the way, you'll find the St. Simons Lighthouse and Museum, Neptune Park with its ocean side pool and facilities, playground, miniature golf course, and an oak shaded picnic area, fishing pier, public library and theater.

Adorable little cottage! Perfect quaint getaway just steps from the beach (you can hear the waves crashing while you sleep). Place is clean, really well stocked with everything you need, and it's walking distance to restaurants and shops. They reiterated to us that the kitchen and bathroom hadn't been updated and that it's an old cottage, which we appreciated as a heads up but definitely didn't deter us! Got plenty of hot water in the shower easily and the AC worked great too. Would stay again!

Perfect long weekend away

by Elizabeth
The location is perfect just a few steps from the beach, walkable to downtown and a very clean home. We will be back!

Wonderful beach cottage!

by Sandy
Loved this beach cottage!! Truly just steps to the beach! Great location to walk to the village and several restaurants. Everything was comfortable and clean. Probably the cleanest vacation home I've ever rented. Loved everything about our stay and would definitely return to this house.

Charming, comfortable cottage

by Margaret
We enjoyed our stay in this property, close to the St. Simons lighthouse and pier. The house is a vintage cottage, attractively furnished, and comfortable. It???s not new and those wanting upgraded utilities and maintenance should look elsewhere, but if you want comfort and charm, this is for you.

Nice stay!

As described!

Charming house with a great location. Our family had a very nice stay over thanksgiving, fixing our dinner in the kitchen very easily and enjoying the home very much. Location is perfect for the beach and a quick walk to the village.

Great Location!

by Phillip
Great location with easy access to the beach. House was perfect for our visit.

Excellent place

by Kevan
The property was amazing, 30 seconds from the beach. Very safe and in a small community. Even during high tide when most of the beach is underwater, there is still a very good strip of beach in front of this place that is always usable. The location is excellent it's right between downtown and the brewery.

We absolutely loved this house and our time at SSI! It was the perfect size for our family of 3 but we easily could have brought more children if we had them! The description matched perfectly... what you see is what you get. Everything was very clean, inviting and comfy. The bathroom is tiny but that was not a surprise as they told us when we booked that the kitchen and bathroom were not updated. Their beach chairs were the back pack kind which was great because the 6th St entrance to the beach didn't have enough room for a beach wagon and also had stairs. NOT handicap accessible for the 6th street entrance. We were front door to sitting on the beach in less than a minute!!! Easy, short walk which was nice for us to be able to go back to house to make lunch or put baby down for nap etc. 10/10 we loved this house and would book it again for our growing family.

Great little spot! Super clean! The proximity to the beach was perfect. They had everything we could have possibly needed to make our stay super enjoyable. Great restaurants are within walking distance which we gladly took advantage of!

We really enjoyed this little cottage. They advertised this thing right and it met our expectations. It was fantastic being literally one house from the beach. We rented a golf cart and found it easy to zip up and down Ocean Blvd to get food/drinks. Two thumbs up!

Perfect spot for family getaway

by Beth
We had such a great stay!! The cottage was like something out of Coastal Living. We loved how close it was to the beach. Our three kids loved the bunk room. We had everything we needed for a relaxing and fun vacation!

Wonderful location very close to the beach and great restaurants. The beach is a 2 minute walk and plenty of room on the beach to hang out. The house is equipped with plenty of pans and utensils to make your own meal there. There is even a nice grill in the back yard. Furniture and beds are comfy. Ac will keep you cool on hot days. This was our second stay on the island and we would stay here again just for the location.

We had a great visit with our 3 kids. The house was adorable and had everything we needed. Very quick walk to the beach, and the beach wasn't crowded or overly busy at all. So peaceful!

This location is fabulous. Just walk right across the quiet street to the beach. Fresh paint and very pretty styling. Luxurious linens and comfy beds. It is an older cottage with its quirks and prepare for the reality of one small bathroom especially if you are bringing the family but the screened in front porch catches a lot of the sand and all the beach stuff. The TVs and sound bars work great and all the space are functional.

As described, great location.

by Anne
The owners description is spot on - clean, comfortable, fully functional, not ultra fancy, excellent location with short walk to beach or pier. I love the 1930's styling, with original doors (heavy!) and trim. Nice to have a place to clean off the beach equipment and kids + outdoor storage on the patio. One suggestion - having a mirror above each of the bedroom dressers and a power strip would make a HUGE difference. Only having one bathroom left my girlfriend and I doing the get-ready shuffle... If we had a mirror and power strip in the bedroom it would be zero issue. Also - a few more minor additions to the kitchen would be great for cooking in - measuring cups/spoons. We are looking forward to staying here again!

Great Location

by William
The house was spotless and perfect for our needs. Very comfortable and close to the beach - 90 steps as advertised?

by Grover
Enjoyed the house. Close to beach, short walk to attractions and restaurants.

Amazing location!

by Emily
The house was very cute and clean and perfect for two couples. We loved being right next to the beach and walking distance to the village. We have already talked about going back soon!

Excellent beach cottage on SSI!!!

by Alex
My wife, twin 2 1/2 years olds, and mother-in-law stayed at this property for a long weekend when they came to visit me. The cottage was perfect and fully met their expectations. My wife commented that the house seemed to be very kid-friendly and the boys loved the custom bunk bed. Ryan was fantastic to deal with and went above and beyond to make sure my family's stay was memorable. Thanks again for sharing your wonderful home with us!

We had an awesome time at this house! The property is exactly as described in the listing. Very clean and updated inside with all of the amenities you need. We booked this property for the proximity to the beach, and it was perfect. You are only steps away from a great section of St. Simons Island beach. Highly recommend this place for your St. Simons getaway!

My partner and I really enjoyed this location. Within walking distance of the beach and the shops and restaurants. The house had everything that we needed and was in a quiet neighborhood. We would definitely visit this location again.

The house is an an excellent location. You can easily walk to the beach in less than a minute. It is a short walk or golf cart ride to the pier are where there are restaurants, shops and parks. The house is quaint and clean and fit our family of 5 perfectly. The owner (Ryan) was helpful and his communication was excellent. I suggested a few additions to the kitchen and house to make it a bit more convienent and he quickly supplied the house with these items. Great rental with great owners!!!

The location was perfect for getting to the beach, walking to the village, and places to eat. The bed was very comfortable and loved the sound bar in the living room and bedroom. It was nice to have the space out back to grill. We will definitely be back.

by Ray And Abby
Cozy little beach house is perfect for a family getaway. Close to Jekyll and Cumberland Island. Close enough to downtown that you can walk and enjoy the sites and beach. The beach is just right there and it's nice a clean and quite.

Great location

by Kate
The listing is accurate - my husband and I maybe put shoes on two times and that was only because we went into the village. A stones throw from the beach made this getaway perfect for us. There isn???t anything fancy about this place, but it???s comfortable, completely functional and did the trick. Only thing I docked on this property is we had some hair in the sink in the bathroom which is one of the grossest things for me. So I questioned the cleanliness for the rest of the trip - probably unfairly. With one bathroom and that is an absolute must for the cleaning team to pay extra attention to.

Great cottage and excellent location

by Anne
Steps from the beach and downtown and everything else. Cottage is freshly redone and listing describes it to a T. I would definitely stay there again.

Good Weekend Getaway

by Joseph
We enjoyed staying at this house. Communication with the property manager was good, and the location couldn't be beat. We walked to the beach every day, and also walked to downtown St Simons. House could easily fit a small family. We'd rent it again.
