Eight of a ladies on a girls trip from TX were thrilled with this quaint house. It had so many porches , great decor and amenities.
Bryan the house manager couldn't have been nicer and had so much input about the area.
Highly recommend renting this house for families or friends trips.

Big spacious rental close to the beach, pool, and a short walk from multiple restaurants and attractions.

The house could use some updates and a little TLC but overall was in good shape. Although I'm sure the sheets had been cleaned in each bedroom, multiple of our guests reported stains on the sheets. The living room seating on the second floor could also use a deep clean, as there were visible stains on those chairs as well. The toilet paper roll holder in the half bath was broken and there was a bit of a bug problem at night on the second floor where the kitchen is and the first floor.

Little bit of confusion when it comes to parking. I had been told repeatedly by reps from Vacasa that the rental only had enough room for two cars and only two parking passes would be provided, but upon my arrival, there were three parking passes and clearly enough room for three cars. Not really sure what happened, but something seems to have been miscommunicated. Also, the "overfill parking" is just parking on the side of the road and is not clearly marked. I would suggest bringing trash bags, paper towels and extra toilet paper for longer strays - these items were provided, but we quickly ran out. One of the shower heads in the master only provided cold water and never gave us hot water. The door to the rooftop deck has trouble latching and either needs to be shoved closed or slammed to close properly.

Regardless of the bumps listed above, this house is spacious with plenty of room and climate control on each floor, Perfect for a family vacation or a long weekend stay. The keypad entry made coming and going very easy and the multiple decks to enjoy were a dream. The elevator came in handy after long days in the sun and overall the amenities were impressive.

Very spacious house. Elevator was nice for the main floor (kitchen/living room) and the Master BR on the top floor. Location is really good. 2-3 minute walk to the pool, 7-10 to the beach. For groups that have 3 adult couples it's really nice they have 3 King sized beds.

The house could use a little TLC/updates/amenities. We noticed insects mostly at night in one of the bedrooms and in the kitchen area. For a house that size and the number of guests it accommodates, the small hotel size coffee pots made making coffee difficult for 7 adults. Toilet paper holder in the half bath was broken. The code listed for entry to the pool area in the instructions and on the refrigerator did not work. Luckily the couple across the way gave us their code and it worked. Nice having so many balconies, but sitting on wrought iron furniture was not very comfortable. Cushions would be a nice addition. An umbrella on the table for the front balcony would have been nice to have as well.

The World War 2 museum is one block over from the house and is a great visit. Driftwood beach over at Jekyll Island is amazing. Bring your camera!

Great location, beautiful house. Steps from pool and beach. Awesome patio views.
Pots/pans aren’t good, knives are bad.
Bring extra garbage bags, paper towels, towels or laundry detergent.
They do have an iron.
House was warm in a few rooms despite lowest ac setting.

The house fit our three generation vacation really well. The location near the pool and ocean was great for grandchildren. We had one maintenance issue and the response was prompt. We were very happy with all aspects of the house and location.

Wonderful location on East Beach. Lots of room for the entire family. Enjoyable vacation

Great location.. wonderful family house.
Shelley W. Oct 2020
We LOVED the home! My family of six and 2 grandbabies were able to have more than enough space. If you need alot of space and very open concept..This is the home for you. The home was very well stocked with kitchen items, toys and beach items. We loved the very short walk to the pool and beach! We will be back and highly recommend this rental!

We recently stayed at Glynn Cottage with some extended family over our county's fall break from school. It is a great vacation house, and the management company was responsive to our requests. It is close to the pool and beach, and we met some very nice families in the community who were also vacationing. There was a very raucous party across the street complete with a paneled van bringing in sound equipment, so just be aware that the management is not great about screening out loud partiers (inappropriate PDA and foul language on the front porch). The house is also not great for young children just learning to walk. There was actually a baby gate on premises, but it was too small for any of the stairs entrances. Bring your own if you can. There's also only one bathtub in the entire house (clawfoot in the master), and it's not great for bathing kids. I'm surprised none of the bathrooms on the first floor has one. Other things you might want to consider bringing:
-garbage bags
-dish detergent (you get 5 pods to start the week, but that's not enough)
-paper towels
-409 spray
-k-cups or coffee grounds (there's a keurig and a regular coffee maker)
-bottled water (the tap water isn't great to drink)

Some of the things I was pleasantly surprised to see was provided:
-broom (although it was broken and we had to request a new one)
-beach towels
-playing cards
-lots of TVs with cable
-good internet
-tons of beach toys and chairs
-outdoor shower

Bring an amazon fire stick or roku if you want to get on streaming services, we wish we had thought of that. Lot of great outside space to congregate complete with lounge furniture. All in all, it was a great experience and we will look at this neighborhood/house again if we come back to St. Simons!

I’ve struggled with the star rating on this one... explanation follows. First, the house itself is fabulous—great layout, lovely decor, proximity to beach—everything you need for an enjoyable vacation. It was the perfect setup for our family vacay (hubby and myself, two sons and daughters-in-law and their young children). There are three kings, each with en suite, and a bunk room with 2 sets of bunks in the fourth room as well as an extra room downstairs for the kids. There is some wear and tear in the house, but nothing more than should be expected from a rental of this type. The trouble was all maintenance related. When we arrived, the floors were not thoroughly cleaned. In the kitchen, there were crumbs under the bar stools and uncooked spaghetti noodles near the trash can. Little bits of “stuff” were obvious on the floors in different places around the house. We have a crawler and a toddler so the floors had to be clean and we could not wait for someone to come do it, so we bought a mop and cleaned the floors ourselves. There were also rat droppings in the lower kitchen cabinets. It was about 10:00 pm before I was able to text the property manager. She replied with an apology and said she would contact us in the morning. That night, it was obvious that the top floor (master suite) air conditioning was not working. We had turned the thermostats down when we arrived and the first two floors worked fine, but the 3rd floor would not cool. In addition, none of the receptacles in the room worked. We researched and found that the breaker was tripped, but did not reset for fear there was some reason it had tripped. Discussion with property manager followed the next morning. She said that the air conditioner had just been serviced and there couldn’t be a problem with it so we just needed to be patient and understand that top floors often are difficult to cool when it’s 100 degrees outside. By the second afternoon as the temperatures began to rise, she finally got a service person to come and they found it to be low on refrigerant gas. Later that night, it started to cool finally. With the offer from the property manager to refund part of the cleaning fee and us washing everything in the kitchen before each use, we thought everything was finally worked out... until the next day at lunch when we found a large cockroach running around in the flatware drawer. Last straw... very disappointing and aggravating to say the least! The property manager tried to explain that bugs are often a problem near the marshes, but there is no excuse for finding roaches in utensil drawers!! We were frequently in contact with the property manager during our stay and the resolution was a full refund of the cleaning fee. Unfortunately, most of our problems could have been prevented with more thorough and better cleaning.

Manager response:
Thank you for your review, Monica. We really appreciate your feedback about your experience and the ways that we can improve. We apologize if the cleanliness of the home left something to be desired, and we will follow-up with our housekeeping team to see that future cleans are completed to our standards. We appreciate that you were able to reach out to the property manager and get assistance for the air conditioning and pest issue. Our homes are frequently treated by pest control and inspected prior to guest arrival. We are very sorry that a cockroach snuck by us and was in the home during your visit. We hope for the opportunity to host you in thefuture.

This home was super clean! (And that’s coming from someone that has OCD) I felt very comfortable staying in this home. Very spacious and the elevator was awesome to have to bring in luggage and groceries. The rooftop patio was a great place to chill. Didn’t have to reach out to the Owner for anything because everything was immaculate and working. Highly recommend this home!
Elizabeth K. Aug 2020
Loved the house and its convenience to everything but not in the middle of the crowded part of the island but close enough. The house was perfect for large groups with places for spreading out and avoiding each other easily. We would return
Casey C. Jun 2020
Loved staying here. The home was very clean and very spacious.. perfect for a large family. Just a short walk to the beach or the pool. Would definitely stay here again.
Don B. Jun 2020
We had a wonderful family vacation at Glynn Cottage. Home was spacious with great layout, comfortable decor and very clean. Easy access to East beach and the community pool was a bonus (not overly crowded). We rented bikes and it was an easy ride to various restaurants and shops. Would definitely stay at this property again. Also, a shout out to the local Vacasa staff who were easily contactable and very responsive to anything we needed during our stay.
Joey C. May 2020
This home had plenty of space and great outdoor areas to spread out and watch the sunset from the roof. The kitchen was conducive to cooking all our meals. We loved that this home was located so close to the pool and beach boardwalk. Parking passes and sufficient beach towels weren't in the home when we arrived, but the team brought them by the following day after someone left tow warning notes on our vehicles. Bath cloths were a rarity, so you might want to pack some of your own. All in all a great stay!
Scott B. May 2020
A nice home and nice community. Loved the beach and pools.
Yuri R. Mar 2020
Awesome house for family vacation. We had three families at the house: 6 Adults and 4 Kids. Plenty of room in the house, pool and beach just 30-40 yards from the front door!
Susan H. Mar 2020
We had a great time at Glynn Cottage. Well appointed. Sunny. Close to beach. And, lots of porches and spaces to find ocean views and quiet, peaceful moments. We had a great time and will return.
Mark W. Feb 2020
Rented this home because of the price was cheap and when I got there I was amazed how big it was. It was super nice too. It's basically right on the ocean and has a couple of pools. The roof top deck was an absolutely amazing feature as well. I will be staying here again for sure.
Laura H. Jan 2020
Great family vacation house. The house as clean and comfortable. It is convenient to East Beach and a short ride to the Village. The property manager was very responsive. Overall we had a great stay!
Kelsey H. Oct 2019
My family stayed here for just about a week, and we loved it. The house was perfect, and we had everything we needed!

Very nice vacation rental. Roomy, clean and well supplied. Plan on going back.
Melissa S. Sep 2019
Our stay was perfect for my large family. So close to the beach and pool. I appreciate two pools-one for families with small children and one for older children and adults. Thank you!!!
Matt W. Aug 2019
Everything was just perfect!
Carol D. Aug 2019
For the past five years or so we have stayed at Glynn Cottage. Glynn Cottage is a wonderfully comfortable home located in a great area of St. Simons. We love how close the beach is and the fact that there’s a pool available as well makes it a win win for us!!
Michelle W. Jul 2019
Glynn Cottage was great for our family of 9! The close proximity to the pool and beach was excellent. As a bonus, the outdoor shower with warm water was a tremendous help in keeping the sand outside and clean kiddos inside. We were also really impressed with the provided wagon, beach chairs and ample beach towels! My husband and I loved the privacy of the master suite separated by the main living area in the center of the house. Our older kids enjoyed the bonus TV room and various decks off the house.

Thank you for a great week at Glynn Cottage!

As an added note to management: We prepared most of our food in house, and we were unable to locate cooking spoons, a whisk, and a pizza cutter. Not having those would not affect our rating but may be helpful for future renters.
Manager response:

Beautiful Cottage, great location, plenty of space!!
Kathleen G. Apr 2019
Awesome house, best vacation!!
Marcelle M. Apr 2019
We had three couples with four kids and this home was perfect! Love how each bedroom has its own bathroom. Plenty of space for us to spread out inside and outside on the multiple balconies. The kitchen was stocked well enough for us to cook a full Easter dinner. The elevator was definitely a bonus for groceries on the third floor kitchen and luggage for the fourth bedroom master. We will definitely return!
Sally O. Apr 2019
Close enough to walk to a couple restaurants and shops. But not so close that it was crowded and loud. Great house, well stocked. Would rent again.
Scott G. Apr 2019
Great location! Great house! Great week!
Stacy S. Feb 2019
The home is even more spacious than it looks in the photos, which is rare - it is usually the opposite when renting online. There was a porch front and back on 2 of the 3 levels, plus the top deck so 5 outdoor sitting spaces in all. I couldn't believe how big the outdoor spaces were. The kitchen was huge and the whole place was full of light. It was a great location and we were even able to swim in the pool even though it was February. The pool was heated for us. Great stay!
Stephen S. Feb 2019
Steps from the beach, view of the ocean from the upper floors/decks. Quick walk to the beach, pool, and a short drive to the great restaurants of the area. Spotless clean, comfortable and well appointed.
