If you are looking for an upscale venue on St. Simons, the Bell Ringer is an exceptional choice. The Bell Ringer exceeded expectations / which is rare . Have stayed at multiple properties on St. Simons over the last 50 years and this is our favorite. Clean / well appointed with a great floor plan. And the balconies / on all floors to include the roof via a spiral staircase. Great / relaxing views. Close to the 2 swimming pools / beach. Would definitely consider for future stays as time allows.

My husband, toddler, and parents stayed in the home and it was wonderful. The house was clean, well-kept, and well-stacked. The access to the pool and beach were wonderful and easy to walk to (even for our 2 year old!) We felt very comfortable and would highly recommend a stay there.

Great weekend at Bell Ringer Cottage at St. Simons. This is our annual girls trip and we love having the extra room this year. Lots of little things in the house need repair and the upstairs AC unit has to be replaced yesterday. Couple of rough nights at 80 degrees but it was the beach and VACASA was incredibly responsive to the issues. We will definitely be back!

Great Location to the Beach! Very private! Home needed some maintenance but good floorplan.
Hi Charlcie, We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We will be sure to pass your suggestions along to our local manager who will work with our homeowner to make necessary upgrades. We look forward to hosting you again!

This house was a perfect size for 4 adult and 4 kids. Plenty of space- layout was great. Kids all said the house was awesome! As adults we did notice many things in need of fixing or updating probably due to heavy rental use. It is a well lived in house, but it did not subtract from our great time in SSI. The proximity to the beach and pool was great with kids. Everyone on the street (all renters likely) were polite and respectful. Great family atmosphere. Would stay here again!

We enjoyed the house, beach and area. The house worked well for our family. We are fairly low maintenance so no complaints about the house or the distance from the beach. The beach and weather was very nice during our week.

This property has a wonderful location near the beach. Unfortunately, the home is well worn and desperately in need of general maintenance and improvements. Guests will find mold in the showers as well as on the bathroom walls. Outside decks, chairs and tables were dirty upon our arrival. Linens, cushions and carpets are very worn and stained. The local property manager is great; however, he is simply dealing with a house that has been turned into a “true rental“.
Hi, John! We are disappointed to read you were unhappy with your experience. Maintenance and housekeeping have already taken care of the mold and the dirty furnishings. The property manager will be discussing your other concerns with the homeowner. Thank you!

This house was perfect for our week at the beach. Easy alk to the beach, close to the main drag in St. Simons and the perfect size house for the 8 of us.

Sleeps 10 very comfortably... huge kitchen and open family room!! Awesome rooftop patio...

Very cute home but not oceanfront. There's an ocean "view" from the rooftop. We would stay again but not with oceanfront expectations.

This was the first time our family vacationed in Saint Simons Island. We loved it. The Bell Ringer cottage is a beautiful vacation home, perfect for our large family. The weather was perfect for us to enjoy all of the big porches that come with the home also. It was just a few steps to the pools and beach that provided fun days of sand and sun. We would love to stay here again.

I loved the home, the spaciousness, the easy access to the beach, the access to the pool and the overall location of the property and the neighborhood.

Went in a fall break trip with another family (5 kids altogether) and there was plenty of room for all! House was very comfortable and the walk to the pool and beach were perfect...so close! Definitely plan to stay here again!

House has perfect layout

Great location. Close to beach and pool. Not crowded in mid September.

Bell Ringer Cottage had everything we were expecting and more. We had a few issues while on our stay, however our issues were quickly addressed to our satisfaction. The home is exactly how the pictures show and extremely close to the community pool and beach. My family (a total of 8 of us) stayed and there was more than plenty of room for us all. We have found our new family vacation spot and already looking for the same area next Summer. We would have ZERO hesitation to stay at Bell Ringer Cottage. Great location, great amenities for everyone and memories of a lifetime made this past week. Book now! You will not regret it!

Bell Ringer Cottage is located close to the pool and beach. The house has plenty of room in the main living space to keep people from feeling on top of each other.

A wonderful house in a fabulous location. One of our best vacations yet!
Tracy S.Feb 2019
Pretty house just 4 lots away from a nice beach. With 2 washers & dryers, it makes keeping up with bathing suits and towels much easier. One of the few homes with a rooftop deck. Really nice rental.

Really enjoyed our stay here for our family Christmas 2018. I have been to St. Simon Island before and always enjoy myself but the 5 minute walk to the beach made this trip more enjoyable. Great response from property management when needed and very clean and well kept. We will be back next year!
