Dog-friendly cottage w/ private pool & hot tub - walk to the beach and village!

Come home to the most charming house on the block when you escape to this four-bedroom St. Simons Island cottage, a cheerful, dog-friendly bungalow with a private pool and hot tub, a screened porch and balcony, and a perfect walking location close to the village, the beach, and the lighthouse.

Tucked away on a quiet cul-de-sac on St.Simons Island, this yellow cottage is an ideal escape for beach-going families. You'll be within a short walk of restaurants and shops, half a mile from the St. Simons Island Lighthouse Museum, and one mile from Neptune Park and East Beach.

Watch the world go by from a rocking chair on the front porch, or step inside to enjoy the beautiful, air-conditioned living space. Admire the lofty ceilings, the hardwood floors, and the intricately patterned rug, and sit down to watch the big-screen cable TV one of the plush leather sofas.

Begin each morning in the kitchen, where you can prepare waffles and fresh fruit smoothies using the plentiful culinary tools. You'll have stainless steel appliances, a Keurig coffee maker, and a dishwasher for your ease and convenience, as well as a charming dining room with an eight-person antique mahogany table.

Grab a few pool toys and head outside to the enclosed backyard, where you'll find a pristine swimming pool, an attached hot tub, and several lounge chairs for naps in the sun. Watch your kids play games of Marco Polo, light the gas grill for a lunchtime barbecue, and enjoy hamburgers and hot dogs at the patio table.

After a day of sunbathing and swimming at East Beach, you can throw your towels and bathing suits in the washer/dryer, sip a twilight cocktail, and play a few rounds of cards on the tranquil screened-in porch.

With four bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms, this Coastal Georgia cottage will accommodate as many as eight guests. Dogs are also welcome, though please note our nightly pet fee. The first master bedroom is on the main floor, offering a king-size bed, a private bath, and access to the screened porch. The second master suite is upstairs, featuring a king-size bed, a private bath, and a balcony that overlooks the pool.

You'll also find a third king bedroom and a fourth bedroom with a pair of twin beds on the second floor. Additional amenities include a flatscreen TV in each of the bedrooms; a DVD player for family movie nights; in-home WiFi; and a Pack 'N Play, baby gates, and a booster seat for your little ones.

Beloved among beach-goers, families, and lovers of Coastal Georgia, St. Simons Island is a place of natural beauty and fascinating history. Lounge in the sand on East Beach, take a tour of the St. Simons Island Lighthouse Museum, and treat your kids to an afternoon of mini-golf, swimming, and playing at Neptune Park.

Explore centuries of history at the Fort Frederica National Monument seven miles north, or take a scenic drive seven miles west to Marshes of Glynn Overlook Park, one of the best spots in the region to admire the coastal wetlands.

Came to Georgia for a wedding. 8 of us stayed in the house. It was PERFECT. The house itself was amazing and clean. The pool in the back really made our mini vacation perfect. If we were to ever come back we would 100% stay in the house again. Very uber accessible and close to anything you might need. Thanks for a wonderful weekend!

Perfect for our family and friends reunion!

This house was perfect for us - We had 3 families each with young kids (2-9 years old) and this house could not have been better. The pool was great and we spent many many hours in it. The backyard feels very private with the fence and huge trees surrounding it. We also noticed that not many houses on St. Simon's have a pool so this was a big plus. The beach was very close - we walked almost every day and it was not a long walk at all, maybe 10 minutes (we walked to 5th street). The beach itself was also one of the best beaches I've been to - great for finding creatures, making sand castles and playing in the water. At low tide the beach was HUGE! The interior of this house is very nice and feels just like a vacation house should. My only complaint is that the TV in the main room is pretty old and doesn't have an HDMI input. We brought a Nintendo Wii for the kids and couldn't plug it into that TV. We ended up bringing one of the bedroom TV's downstairs but it was pretty small. Overall I would absolutely recommend staying in this house, it was perfect!

Perfect home for a large group of people. Pool and hot tub were wonderful and clean. Very close to the beach and shopping/food.
John B. Apr 2018
The house came as advertised. It is a great home with a great location. A short drive (or a long walk) to the beach and to town. The house is well-maintained and the pool is private. I would recommend this property without reservation.

Almost everything about the house was great; location, accommodations, living area etc. We were 7 women and found the house perfect for us. The only problem was we couldn’t get either the hot tub or pool to heat up.
Manager Response:
We apologize the guest was unable to get the hot tub functioning. We did call and leave a message with instructions for hot tub use when the guest notified us of the problem.

Great four bedroom home, very clean and spacious. It's close to the cute downtown area of St. Simons and the beach. We had pretty cold weather but St. Simons is an absolutely wonderful mecca for shopping and eating so after a beach walk ion the morning, off we would go. Great for a girlfriends trip!

This house has it all. Very clean, pool, and close to everything the island has to offer!

We had several couples sharing this beautiful place, and we all loved it. It was comfortable, wonderfully furnished, clean and well located. You could walk to most any place you'd want to go...the village, the beach, to the King & Prince to eat overlooking the water. We all agreed that we'd return to this same rental if we have the chance!

College friends from three states reunited after 35 years! The reservations were easy to make, the home was clean and inviting, and the price is reasonable . We had plenty of room to gather as well as beautiful bedrooms for privacy. The pool was a refreshing retreat after time on the beach. We were a short distance to the beach and local restaurants. We'll be back!

We had a great beach trip!!
Nate W. Aug 2017
The house was large enough for or 8 member family. The location was ideal and close to everything w wanted to do. The communication from Vacasa was very easy and the process was smooth. We rent condos and houses frequently and this was one of the easiest I've experienced. I will definitely use the service again.

The home is much more than the pictures show. It is a comfortable and peaceful place to stay. Our daughter is wanting us to go ahead and book for next year.
Deborah G. Jul 2017
I titled this way as that is what my 3 year old grandson called the home. Beautiful home, beautifully furnished, lovely pool area, pool toys for the kids, wonderful supply of towels, nice linens, nice proximity to the Village. The only downfall is that a drive is required to the beach if you have little ones as it is too far to walk while hauling all the needed beach supplies. It would be nice if there were beach chairs & a beach umbrella included for use with the home. Overall though, the home suited our needs very nicely. We would definitely consider a future stay!

We come to SSI a good bit. We are only 3.5 hours away. We always have a crew with us as we are a big family. This house very comfortably slept 8. Its very spacious and the pictures online don't do it justice! Parking is a little tight, but if you obey the rules and bring no more than 3 cars, you'll be fine. (We did obey the rules but brought down our golf cart, and it was a little cramped with the trailer there too.) You cannot beat the pool area. So nice all day long. We actually ended up staying more at the pool than we did the beach. I highly recommended this house.

Beautifully furnished and well laid out house. Back screened porch perfect for casual dining. Very nice and well maintained pool for refreshing in or relaxing around. Reasonably short walk to the beach.
Lynn B. May 2017

This house had all the comforts of home. Private pool area. Beds were very comfortable. There were 8 adults and 3 babies under the age of 5 months and we never felt crowded. Plenty of room to spread out including the screened in porch.
Kelly J. Mar 2017
Very close to activities, beach, restaurants. Would definitely stay here again.
Scheryl B. Mar 2016
The house is nicer than the pictures. Pool is excellent, everything in the house comfortable and in good shape. Nice screened in porch with table and space for 7 or 8 people to eat. Barbara, the owner, is responsive. Although we had no problems with the house we had a couple questions about setting the heating on the pool, etc. and she immediately responded with answers and even offer to send someone to help. Highly recommend this home for up to 8 people. Great location to town and beach.

My family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this house. With four small grandchildren, the pool was a great feature. While they napped, their parents and we were able to enjoy being outdoors while still being close by. The house was very spacious and comfortable (even better than the pictures showed).

We're St. Simons regulars and our family of 8 thoroughly enjoyed our vacation week here. The house was exactly as described and pictured in the listing, and is spacious, well-furnished and very clean. It was great to be able to relax in the pool and hot tub after supper. There were lots of beach chairs, beach towels and even a kiddie-wagon for our use. The kitchen was well-stocked and we enjoyed having the outdoor grill by the pool. My only (minor) suggestion would be to supply more bath towels and wash cloths, we always seemed to be short and needed to wash them once or twice. This was our first time staying off-beach and the house was slightly farther from the beach than we hoped (at least a 3-block walk) so we drove most of the time, since we had 3 little ones under 5 and it was a bit too far to walk with children and beach gear on busy streets. If this house were closer to the beach, we would certainly rent it again. Next time, we will probably try to find a beachfront property. However, if you're on the island for a special event or girls' weekend, I think it's perfect.
