The front porch is delightful. The artwork is stunning. The bedrooms are very comfortable and we had a great time

Our family of 4 loved our week at the cottage. The owners have a really nice place that feels so much like home. Towels and other beach supplies are here and available. The location is just private enough to really get away, yet close enough to many great restaurants and stores. Artwork in the home is such a nice touch.

We had a wonderful time with family!! The front porch area and swing was our favorite place to hang out.

The house was well stocked and comfortable. Our family of 4 had the best time there. The location can not be better. The pool and beach are just steps away.
Michelle B.Oct 2020
We traveled with a few friends and this house and location were perfect! We had easy access to the beach, pool, and were close to restaurants and shopping in town. The house was clean, comfortable, and well-equipped, and the customer service provided by Vacasa in booking our trip and making arrangements was perfect! We would definitely stay again!
Ayrio C.Oct 2020
Private neighborhood with 2 pools, private beach access, and the most beautiful homes on the island. We’ve been there several times and will be back again!

Chad B.Jul 2020
A last minute get-out-of-our-house COVID trip! We loved the extra bonus sleeping room we didn’t expect! Well kept and stocked. 200 steps to the pool/beach. Quiet, quaint neighborhood. Comfortable beds, linens and beach towels supplied. The AC was great! Door Dash delivers so you don’t need to go out! Responsive rental company. We will return!

This cottage has it all.... Steps from the pool and boardwalk to the beach, sophisticated decor and all the amenities needed to vacation.
Elizabeth P.May 2020
Perfect short walk to beach- no stairs, which was much appreciated with small children and wagon in tow. Generous front porch with swing and large table for mealtimes. Can’t wait to stay again!
Rob M.May 2020
A wonderful cottage for a beach retreat. Very easy walk to pool and beach. We were able to walk to dinner at some of the best restaurants on island and with parking at a premium on island that was a big plus! I would definitely recommend this rental for anyone looking for a getaway on St Simons Island.

Cute little area, great rental property, and quite surroundings.

Great rental. All furnishings updated. Highly recommend.
Mark E.May 2019
House sits in a perfect location to walk straight to the beach - even at high tide there is plenty of space . Pools (2) were clean and refreshing, and on the way back from or to the beach. House was nicely furnished and stocked with all necessary kitchen utensils/pans, along with plenty of beach towels. Felt like a true beach cottage - local art on all the walls reflects beauty of Saint Simons area.

We recently stayed at this charming cottage while on a golf weekend at Sea Island....we loved the location of this property - so close to the beach, and only a short drive to the Sea Island Golf Club. The property was very clean and looks exactly as it appears in the photos. The 'Coast Cottage" neighbourhood is charming. I would definitely recommend this home and would stay here again!
Abbie S.Apr 2019
This was our first time to St. Simons Island and this house and perfect location did not disappoint. We loved the "museum feel" of this home. The heated pool, proximity to the local restaurants and beautiful beach will keep this little gem on our list of future vacation destinations.

This is a beautiful home! Great pool and beach access.
Matthew R W.Dec 2018
The home is beautifully finished, with every aspect updated. Communications were well laid out for easy entry and departure with a lockbox. Though there in December, it was just a short walk to the pool and beach with restaurants and activities close by!
Jennie B.Aug 2018
The home was well stocked, and super cute! Patrick was fantastic and we had everything we needed for the perfect girls’ getaway!
Haley B.Jul 2018
We absolutely loved staying here for our family vacation. The cottage is so cute and beautifully decorated, and we loved eating meals on the front porch and reading in the swing in the evenings. The very short walk to the beach and pool was so convenient and an ideal set-up for families with young children. Patrick was very helpful and responsive for any questions or concerns and made the whole process very easy. We couldn't have asked for a better spot and will definitely be staying here again!
Danny F.Jul 2018
We stayed st the Frederica Cottage for a week in June of 2018. My wife and I had rented a few other cottages from the Coastal Cottages. We are very familiar with the area. We loved the house very nicely decorated , extremely clean , and very close to the ocean and pool. Patrick Anderson the property manager takes pride in his job. He stopped by and introduced himself the first day we were there. We seen him everyday making sure all his properties are well maintained and his renter clients are fully satisfied with there stay. We will definitely be back to stay again.

Frederica Cottage was perfect for our family vacation. it is beautifully decorated with gorgeous artwork and simple but very tasteful furniture. The porch was one of our favorite places to gather. We drank coffee every morning while sitting in the porch swing, one of the favorite parts of our trip. We enjoyed the pavillion every evening before our nightly walk on the beach. We had everything we needed and Patrick was very prompt in helping when our Internet quit working. He came to the house immediately and took a lot of time troubleshooting and getting us back up and running. We've come to SSI for 26 years and stayed in several of the Coast Cottages. Frederica Cottage is a favorite and we will most definitely be back!
Deborah P.Jul 2014
Hastle free and relaxing! From the moment we arrived until our departure, the cottage served our every need. And the interior is beautifully decorated.
Susie B.Jun 2014
My husband, and I, enjoyed our visit to Federica cottage. We did find that the master bedroom was a bit cramped due to the roof line and the steps leading up to it are quite steep. The king size bed was wonderful, and roomy. If you plan on making a pasta dish; however, bring your own colander. The location is perfect and is walking distance (about a mile +/-) to the village and to the entire beach.

Great location. Paved road to pool. Pool area had clean bathrooms. Nice wood walkway from pool to beach. Lifeguards on beach. Stayed at the end of May. High tide was around 430 or 5 pm. At that time there was still a little beach area to enjoy. My friends said that it was more beach area at high tide than other areas of the island.I was not clear from description about upstairs area. It is a large bedroom (very short ceiling so tall people may hit their heads). There is a door to the small room with the daybed. The room with the daybed has a door to the bathroom and a door to the stairs. Very clean. Unique paintings, furniture, etc.Minor things that could have been improved. 1) larger water heater 2) larger cutting board 3) mirrors in bedrooms since there are only 2 bathrooms for up to 8 people 4) supply more toliet paper, trashbags, and papertowels 5) recycling bin at the house 6) move queensize beds in downstairs bedrooms away from wall to let the 2nd person get out easier. In review, gave 4 stars for cleanliness. We found wet towels in the washer. Otherwise, it was clean.
