Charleston-style cottage w/ lovely decks, steps to the beach & pools
Beautifully and conveniently located only 225 steps from two community swimming pools and the gorgeous shores of East Beach, True Knot Cottage offers a glimpse of St. Simons Island at its best. This classic-yet-modern home was designed in the style of Charleston's side-porch cottages, providing a wonderful atmosphere full of Southern charm, elegant finishes, and cozy living spaces. You'll be able to walk to the pools, the beach, and the community sundeck each morning, and easily return home for lunch prepared on the gas grill or in the fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances. Sip cold glasses of sweet tea beneath the ceiling fans on the side porch, spend the afternoon people-watching in rocking chairs on the front patio, and catch unforgettable sunsets on the third-level observation deck.
What’s nearby: This home is part of the Coast Cottages at St. Simons Island, which sit just a few steps from two pools, a sundeck, and an oceanfront pavilion on the sandy shores of East Beach. When you're not swimming, building sandcastles, or walking the beach at high or low tide, you'll be an easy bike ride (or an an even quicker drive) from the St. Simons Lighthouse Museum and the many attractions of Neptune Park, both of which are less than two miles southwest. Take out a kayak for the morning, tee off at the Seaside Golf Course less than three miles west, and sample a variety of restaurants that await on Ocean Boulevard.

Just steps from the beach. This cottage did not disappoint. My husband and I only spent two nights here. We loved the large kitchen and living room. So many porches and different visual sites from each level. We will definitely visit again.

Beautiful home just a short walk from the beach. It’s close to all the restaurants.
Beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable for our family
We can’t wait to come back

We loved the True Knot Cottage. The porches and observation deck were an added bonus! The pool area and the entire neighborhood was wonderful! We hope to return soon!

Beautiful home. We loved everything about it. Can’t wait to come back

House is in a great neighborhood and I would definitely stay in this area again. I would say that the bathroom showers really need updating - especially the master bathroom. This would not stop me from staying there again, but for the price per night, it’s really something to consider. The management company was very responsive to the few questions we had. They did a nice job in that regard.

Great Charleston style house located right by East Beach. Quiet neighborhood with room for the eight of us.

Great location really neat home we love the home. We love Saints Simon Island
Katie C.Sep 2020
We loved the community of houses and how easy it was to get to the beach. The house has plenty of space and fit the 8 of us perfectly! The wagon provided to take our stuff to the beach was also a nice bonus. I would definitely recommend staying at this house for a trip to St. Simons!

We had a great time. Wonderful home in a perfect location. The early check out time is ridiculous though.
Elmore S.Jun 2020
We loved the house generally. The location is great as is the layout, amenities, ease to access, and decorating. But the bathrooms, especially the tubs need upgrading. They have rust and mildew stains and the grout is discolored and missing in places. There were also stains on the bedding in the bunk room. These were not fresh stains, but for the rate requested and paid, bed linen should be discarded if stains remain after washing.
Thank you for staying with us, Elmore! We are glad you enjoyed the home and we appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback. We will work with our team to identify areas for improvement. We look forward to hosting you again!

We loved the location and how close it was to the beach. The house was beautiful and clean. Having different levels made it more spacious. We are looking forward to coming back.
Mary Alice N.Jan 2020
Beautifully decorated home with great living space to rest, relax and visit with family. Nice location to walk to beach but just out of the busy village area.

Staff were readily available on every issue posed to help problem solve. Incredibly efficient and very speedy. Jeremy came to replace light bulbs after contacting mgmt company and both he and the mgmt company did an AWESOME JOB!! I rate all services 5 out of 5

This is not only the perfect house, but it’s in the perfect location. Roniece was the best host. She know I wasn’t getting in until 9pm and made sure the lights were on for me. She is a wonderful communicator. The house is perfect for a small family or a girls get away. I can’t wait to go back again.
Sharron W.Oct 2019
Loved being close to the beach! Enjoyed the pool! Comfortable beds and plenty of rooms! Everyone had their own bathrooms! Equipped kitchen with all we needed! Clean, and we highly recommend! Will come visit again!
Jarrett B.Sep 2019
This fun beach house is everything you expect from seeing the pictures. Great quiet street with the pool and beach at the end of the street. House was in great shape. Would definitely recommend this to family and friends.
Marcia F J.Aug 2019
This area was so nice. Easy walk to the beach with such interesting changes to the shoreline. Neighborhood was so nice. This house was perfect for our family on this trip. I loved the built in window seat at the table area.
Scott T.Aug 2019
Our third time on this street; house provided everything we needed. Fans on covered porch made it surprisingly comfortable to enjoy in mid 80 degree weather.
Benjamin E.Jul 2019
We stayed here for a week in late July of 2019. The home is beautiful, well- decorated, comfortable and very close to the beach! The little things matter and Vacasa made a point to do the little things in a big way, going the extra mile in ensuring we felt welcome. We will be back! Thank you!
Christopher B.Jul 2019
Mid summer so the temps were hot but the house was nicely air conditioned and the close by pool and ocean were perfect. The house was clean, nicely outfitted and in a well-kept neighborhood.
Sheryl L.Apr 2019
We loved the location and proximity to the huge, beautiful and uncrowded beach. The pool area was nice and clean, and the cottage was well equipped. The one drawback was our dishwasher was not functional at all, so we ended up washing dishes for all the meals that we cooked in the kitchen. The management gave us a small refund to compensate for the inconvenience. Kitchen was nicely equipped, and large enough for our family to use comfortably. Vacasa has a good system for booking and checking in and out. Overall, except for the dishwasher issue, the process was smooth and our vacation enjoyable. Overall, I would recommend renting in this community. We will definitely consider returning for future vacations.

It was perfect for our family!!!

We have stayed in several coast cottages. This was a very well decorated, clean home.
Took one star off for the kids room with bunkbeds. The upper beds have very thin boxspings that SQUEEK terribly when moving around the mattress. They really need to be removed and replaced with a 3/4inch piece of plywood, would solve the proble,m. Kept kids awake all night the first night.
Master bed is probably the most comfortable rental bed we have ever stayed in.
Internet didnt work inititally, but with a call to Vacasa this was fixed quickly,
Pool was a bit cold for a heated pool....but we are spoiled and heat our own pool to 85 degrees. Pool was probably 78-80
Nice overall house. If they fix the bunkbeds will be a 5+ house...super clean with everything you need.
Tara O.Mar 2019
So peaceful. Perfect location near the village and the restaurants. Beautifully appointed. Pool and beach right there! What more can you ask for?! We LOVED our stay and will definitely be back!!!
