About Marie Gray

This house is our personal vacation home. We take so much pride in this home and want it to be a retreat when we go on vacation.

Marie Gray purchased this house in 2006

Why Marie Gray chose St. Simons Island

We looked at many locations on the east coast. This island had a wonderful sense of community. People come back year after year. We wanted a place where our family, especially the children, could build family memories.

This island has the feeling that you stepped back in time but still has all the amenities you could want!

What makes this house unique

Arbor Cottage is extremely accessible to the beach, but is also private. It is surrounded by trees (in the winter you get hundreds of delicious oranges and grapefruit in the backyard). We have two large indoor living areas and an enormous deck located in the middle. The flow of the home is wonderful for multiple families creating an environment of family, but a feeling of privacy.

Guestbook comments from the owner

From Our Home's Guest Book:



"I was fortunate enough to have been able to stay in the Arbor Cottage for 2 months in 2006 and for another 3 months in 2007. I just love this place! It has everything that you could ever want, e.g. 50" HDTV in the living room, WiFi, jacuzzi tub in the master, oversized deck for throwing fabulous beach parties, a chef's kitchen, great location on East Beach, but my favorite amenity has to be the awesome windows in the master bedroom. I enjoyed waking up every morning to spectacular view of the sunrise eliminating the overgrown tree canopy and squirrels building their nest in those same trees. The level of detail that went into restoring, adding onto and furnishing the house must have been painstaking. The owners personally guaranteed that my stay would be a trouble free and enjoyable experience and that is exactly what they did. If there was ever any problem, they took care of it right away. If you are looking for a personal get away like me or if you want to bring your entire family along, you can not go wrong with selecting Arbor Cottage. Just make sure that you don't book it for the same times that I would like to...lol : )" Joshua Davis, Charlotte, NC

Arbor Cottage...a piece of my heart.

  • 5 of 5

Arbor Cottage is a luxurious home away from home. This spacious house has been cared for and beautifully decorated by 3 very kind & caring owners. Myself & 2 gals spent 2 weeks in Feb. & were sad to leave. All kitchen & entertainment appliances are state of the art & we enjoyed them immensely. The neighborhood is quaint & quiet ...the people we met out & about were all so friendly. The 3 of us had studied S.S.I. before our trip. We found ourselves close to landmarks dating back to 600 years ago.. We were thrilled & many times heavy hearted by these historically well preserved areas. Historians of any age would love this experience. Back home up north I miss having coffee in the morn in the screen porch with the sun on the grapefruit trees & the evenings with the fabulous deck tree lights. So much peace. The sunsets on the 'Marshes of Glynn' are breath taking & the beaches are fabulous. Thank you Arbor Cottage & your owners. You have a piece of my heart always.

Myself and my sister and a good friend spent two lovely weeks at Arbor Cottage on St. Simons Island. The home is one lock from the ocean. Easy walk. There are so many wonderful places to eat that we didn't even come close to hitting half of them. Perhaps because there is such a wonderful kitchen fully stocked at Arbor Cottage that we truly enjoyed cooking our own meals. The décor is updated modern and tasteful. We had read Eugenia Price's historical novels of St. Simons Lighthouse, and were so surprised to find that she lived just around the corner from Arbor Cottage. We visited the Lighthouse museum and the Coast Guard museum which

is only about a mile from the house. Great place to stay and the owners are so wonderful to work with. Highly recommend for couples, singles or families!

Beautiful, comfortable Arbor Cottage on St. Simons Island

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Arbor Cottage with two other friends, all of us are over 55. VERY IMPRESSED with the home. We all had our own bedroom and bath. Very clean home and well decorated. All amenities were provided for us and we were only a block from the greatest beach on St. Simons Island. I highly recommend this VRBO listing! All of our questions about the property were responded quickly and the owners were extremely nice and helpful. I would definitely stay at this property again next time on St. Simons.

The house exceeded my expectations. It was extremely clean. The decor was perfect. All the furniture was very comfortable and in good shape, especially the beds. The appliances and entertainment technology was up to date and worked well. I will not hesitate to return to this home.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

Arbor Cottage was beautiful but comfortable and homey. We cook, so we appreciated how well stocked the kitchen was with everything we needed. The access to the beach was wonderful! The owners have done a great job making everything easy and relaxing.
