We had such a wonderful time on our weekend getaway at Emil Cottage. It was as clean as a whistle and the eclectic decor was so fun!! Nice linens and well equipped kitchen. I have absolutely no complaints!! We will be back and hopefully can stay longer next time.

Emil Cottage was perfect for our stay. The home was extremely clean and very well appointed. The Vacasa Team was wonderful with timely responses to our questions. We will definitely return to Emil Cottage.

This house was the perfect vacation. It's definitely named appropriately as the decor is quite eclectic. So much fun to stay here! The kitchen was so well stocked, large, and fully functional. It is a very short walk to the beach & pool. The house has many stairs so be prepared to climb some flights. It was perfect for our family.
Sunny P. Feb 2022
We really enjoyed our stay. The cottage felt very cozy and was decorated beautifully. Also great location to the beach as well as all of the other attractions. We will definitely be back.

Loved the color and jukebox!

We loved the bedroom setup with 3 bedrooms on the 1st floor all with separate bathrooms. The 3rd floor has a very private 4th bedroom and bath. The house is also beautifully furnished and looks brand new. The house was also extremely clean! We will be back!

Our family of five was blown away at every little detail of this beautiful home. A true HGTV style house, we never quite got used to all the amazing amenities and decor this home had to offer during the two-week stay!! From the colorful lounge area and deck furniture, to the jukebox, to the fully stocked and hip kitchen we looked forward to returning to Emil cottage each day after the pool, beach or exploring. By far the best home we have ever stayed in!
Angela S. Jul 2021
Loved the details of the cottage, the beds were comfy, plenty of beach chairs, towels are nicer than our previous places we stayed and the jukebox was a hit with all ages! We would definitely book a stay again!

We had a great week and so enjoyed Emil Cottage.
This is a well stocked cottage from the beach towels and chairs to an amazing kitchen with everything you could possibly need including an ice maker for filling your coolers.
The juke box was fun for impromptu dance parties!
The covered porch was a great place to start and end our days.
Highly recommend this home!

house was great, local support was a big zero, all I got was an email saying give me a five when when asked for a review. the five rating is for the house, not your agent!!
Ronni D. Jun 2021
Loved the location, the jukebox, the multiple bathrooms, roomy bedrooms, large washing machine, outdoor areas, crows nest in the evenings, the large stovetop and oven.
The main drawback was that no beach wagon was furnished (always a huge plus in other rentals), so we spent $100 and bought one. The one cup Keurig was occasionally operational, but there was a large drip coffee maker, so no biggie. Bring extra trash bags (13 gallon size), paper towels, and any condiments you might want. (This cottage didn’t have a pantry full of flour, sugar, oils, vinegar, popcorn, coffee, etc.)
We loved our stay snd would highly recommend this cottage! Such unusual and fun decor!
Jeff C. May 2021
Delightful and clean and well appointed with kitchen utensils, towels, etc. Looking forward to our next stay at Emil Cottage!

The house was perfect for our quick trip to St. Simons for a family wedding. I wish we had more time.
Alfred Z. Oct 2020
So hard to put into words. The home was absolutely awesome, and decor is exactly as depicted on the website, which is the reason we chose Emil Cottage. Attention to detail, in every square inch, which keeps the eye wandering the bold colors, high end decor, and a cozy environment. One of the cleanest, and well appointed vacay rentals we’ve ever been to! Such a relaxing, and fun filled time at Emil Cottage! The area is perfect to walk, or drive to some great restaurants, sightseeing and the beach. We will return!
Brad M. Aug 2020
The house was perfect for our group- 5 adults/ 4 kids 9-13. Well equipped. Great views from the crow’s nest. We’ll be back.
Joanne K. Jul 2020

Great house!
Adam G. Jun 2020
One of the best vacation homes we’ve had. Well stocked, fun design and felt very safe and clean. Incredible kitchen for a vacation home!
Laura C. May 2020
We had a wonderful stay at Emil Cottage. The décor was eclectic and fun. The juke box provided a wide range of background music for playing games at night (and for more than a little dancing!). The kitchen had everything we needed when cooking in. The house provided great access to both the pool and the beach. And the decks were a great place to relax at the end of a busy day. This house had everything we needed for a nice, relaxing vacation. We will definitely be back!!

The house was awsome,
Michelle G. Aug 2019
Loved the house and location! Thanks for the extra towels. We will come again!
Kelli H. Aug 2019
The house was so spacious and had everything we needed. The beds were comfy and we loved the eclectic decor. The only downside is my son had to have an emergency appendectomy on Wednesday so most of the vacation was spent at the hospital. We would love a do over next time hospital free.
Danielle K. Jul 2019
Stayed at Emil cottage for a week with my family and it was perfect! Spacious but still cozy to enjoy our time together.
Rob W. Jun 2019
Super street. Our third time renting here.
MaryAnn G. May 2019
Beyond my personal belongings, everything needed to enjoy my vacation was provided and there were many unexpected extras also. Enjoying the ocean view while relaxing on the third floor balcony was my favorite thing. Emil Cottage is beautifully decorated and it is a fun and delightful place to enjoy a vacation!
Adam C. May 2019
The house is awesome for a large family gathering. Just note that there is no outdoor eating area. Also don’t plan on having beach toys or any condiments ( i mean nothing not even salt). But the property is beautiful and unique.
Annette B. Apr 2019
We loved the interior and decor of this house. The layout is very functional and the size of the kitchen along with supplies allows for easy meal prep. We will be back!
Shawn M. Feb 2019
We loved our stay here. Home is beautiful and well appointed for the most part. Note that there weren’t extra garbage bags or spray cleaner - so bring with you or plan to pick up. We had a hard time with the door locks - but it was handled immediately and politely. Highly recommend - we will certainly be back.
Heidi H. Jan 2019
We loved are stay! Everything was nice and clean! We had plenty of room and loved the jukebox ♡ They were also very helpful for whatever questions i had. If i had one thing to change it would be the parking situation but, it wasn't a really big deal! Over all we loved everything!
Kristi M. Jun 2014
We loved this cottage! Coast Cottages is our favorite place to rent at St. Simons and we have rented multiple cottages in the past. Emil is definitely the new favorite! The only minor complaint was that check in was supposed to be at 4:00 and the house was not ready until almost 5:00.
Kay J. Apr 2014
A simply wonderful getaway! The entire family loved the fun decor. We will definitely return!!
