PET FRIENDLY SOUTH END ISLAND COTTAGE, SHORT WALK TO VILLAGE & BEACH

St. Simons Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms (Sleeps 5), 2 Baths, front porch, screened porch, back deck.

Located on one of the more tree-canopied streets on the island, our home will provide you with the perfect vacation getaway you have been looking for. The live oaks that cover this area give you the feeling like you are in your own world. Once you park your car under the carport in the back, you may not need to use it again during your stay.

We are in a convenient location at the south end of the island, just about a 10-minute (0.4 mile) walk to the beach and 15-minute (0.7 mile) walk to the village. We are also centrally located to many great restaurants and fun activities for the whole family to discover. Cummings Lane is a very cozy, quiet, and peaceful location. It is only one block long with more people walking than driving. The trees and landscaping provide a sense of privacy and seclusion from neighbors. It is truly our favorite street on the island.

The open style floor plan and outdoor porches provide for very comfortable living. The bedrooms each have their own bathroom and can be considered to be their own suite. Amenities include cable TV, wireless internet access, fully-equipped kitchen, and more. The cottage has all that you will need for a great vacation getaway.

As new owners last year, we made many improvements to the property while we were snowbirding during the winter of 2013. We removed the carpet and put down wood flooring. We installed a new dishwasher and water heater and replaced all shower heads and faucets. There is a new blue ray player in the living room and a new flat screen TV in the master bedroom. Outside in the front we built a paver path and put in many new plants in the front yard.

Our latest improvements include a large deck out back and an outdoor hot water shower, new deck furniture, and landscaping in the backyard (including a Meyers lemon tree and grapefruit tree). We made another big improvement at the request of several of our guests last year. We added fencing and gates to completely enclose the backyard so pets can roam freely. We hope you enjoy all we have done.

We have had the best guests and are excited about continuing to share our home as a vacation rental that is both warm and inviting. We will make every effort to provide you with a comfortable home away from home, great service when needed, and an overall ideal vacation experience.

If you have more than 4-6 people, we are happy to work with our next door neighbor (http://www.vrbo.com/96191) to try to accommodate a larger group.

Guestbook comments from the owner
The following comment was entered by our guest on another vacation rental site and copied and pasted here...



We spent 8 nights, and the cottage had everything we needed. Very convenient location. We brought our bicycles, which worked out great as the area is very bicycle friendly (for casual cycling).



We had our 11 month old grandson, and it was very convenient to have the crib and highchair. Saved us from having to bring one along, which would take up a lot of space in the car.



Art and Linda were very good to work with, and answered questions quickly. You can tell they really want all their guests to have everything just right for their stay.

We are retired teachers, but still work part time. We found out about St. Simons Island by chance and fell in love with the village, beach, and people. Being originally from a rural area, we that found St. Simons gives us the same comfortable feeling of home that we hope you get the chance to experience too. We have a rescued dog who is a certified therapy dog. Buddy loves to go to schools where the children read to him. This is a very pet-friendly island. The beach is a great place for dogs and you can also bring your dog to dine with you at any restaurant with outside seating. It is in this light that we have made our home pet friendly too. We have now happily owned the cottage for a year and have had the most wonderful guests visit. We wanted to make our cottage a warm and inviting, well-equipped rental home and have been told by many that we did just that. And we have plans to make it even better each year. During your stay, please feel free to contact us any time you feel the need. We're happy to share our home and are sure you'll love St Simons Island, Cummings Lane, and our cottage for your vacation.........Art and Linda

Linda or Art purchased this cottage in 2012

We have been vacationing on St. Simons Island many years, including spending two winters as renters before purchasing this cottage. We feel so lucky to have found this home on one of the most beautiful streets on St. Simons Island. We stayed in the cottage for the first time during the winter of 2013 and are looking forward to many more winters here. We know you will love it as much as we do.

Since we live here for four months ourselves, our home is sure to have all the comforts you would need. The kitchen is fully stocked with quality appliances, dishes, etc. The master bedroom has its own bathroom, but if you check out the floor plan (last item in the group of photos) you can see that the second bedroom can be considered to have its own private bathroom as well. That bathroom, just off the dining area, is within the alcove entrance to the second bedroom. The outer door of the alcove can be closed off at night creating another private bedroom/bathroom master suite. This makes the home ideal for one or two couples or for families with children. There is a dining area that seats four plus, another dining area in the screened porch, and a patio dining set for four on the new back deck. The living room has two comfortable couches, a flat screen TV, and many family games and books. The front porch is my favorite spot with a great porch railing at the perfect height for putting your feet up while sipping a glass of wine. Enjoy!

COMFORTABLE AND WALK TO EVERYTHING + OWNERS COULDN'T BE NICER

Comfortable and Walk to Everything + Owners Couldn't be Nicer
  • 5 of 5
The cottage is very homey and comfortable and it is in a perfect, shady location with an easy walk to both beach and town. It was really perfect. We started out our 8 days there with two couples, 1 9-year-old boy, and 2 medium-sized dogs, and the house felt big enough for all, especially since the bedrooms each have their own baths. The second half of our stay it was just me and my husband and our two dogs and it felt like a perfect cottage just for us. We LOVED not having to drive, sipping coffee on the front porch in the morning, and all the big beautiful trees in the area. It is worth the long drive for us to come here---we hope to come back soon!
Also, to Art & Linda, THANK YOU, for making this a dog-friendly house! Our 2 pups really enjoyed the calm beach at low tide----they are both scared of big waves, and the truth is I'm not so brave about them either : - ) ----- and they went in swimming for the first time! We had such a good time with them along.
I would definitely recommend this property to others.

PERFECT FAMILY & PET FRIENDLY COTTAGE GETAWAY

Perfect Family & Pet Friendly Cottage Getaway
  • 5 of 5
Our family were very pleased with this cottage and I think our children and little dachshunds would have liked to stay all year round! The owners have thought of everything that you might need and then some. We especially loved the fenced in back yard with the awesome hot/cold private showers. This amenity was great for everyone rinsing off, and especially the dogs after a beach walk. Now our children think we need a shower in own own backyard :) The backyard is the perfect balance of shade and sun while listening to many of the wonderful local birds on St. Simon's ~ from Terns, Woodpeckers, and Northern Parula... but the best of all, a Screech Owl family fledged babies while we stayed at the cottage into the back yard! Listening to the adults calling to the babies in their soft trilling call was a rare treat for us on the deck at nights. The children also made use of the other outdoor water source in the front yard to wash off their beach finds and loved the front porch swing. We cooked every day and found nothing missing. We also made use of the nice utility room and appreciated the covered carport to park our bikes and leave our beach gear ~ The screened in porch was a nice spot in the evenings to listen for night sounds and enjoy the night air. The master bedroom's large walk in closet gave us plenty of room to keep all of our luggage so we felt at home the entire week and the second bedroom had plenty of storage as well. The walk from the cottage to the beach was pleasant. We loved the location to Massengill park and to our favorite shop, The Pane in the Glass. We hated to leave but will be back!

COULDN'T BE BETTER!

Couldn't be better!
  • 5 of 5
Mom & 3 adult sisters went to SSI for long weekend. Art & Linda's house was incredible! It was spotless, very comfortable and you wanted to live on the front porch or screen porch! One sister loves to camp so she totally enjoyed the outdoor shower! The yard-front & back-was complete tranquility! We will schedule future trips only when this house is available. Thanks Art & Linda!

Owner's Response: We're really happy you and your group were so pleased with your stay. And also that one of our recent projects (the outdoor shower) was appreciated as well. Thanks so much for taking the time to write your review; after occupying the cottage ourselves for 5 months it's great to have reviews coming in again. We really appreciate our guests and will continue to provide them with a great home for their St Simons Island vacations. Thanks again and it was great having you stay.....Art and Linda

CLEAN, QUIET AND COMFORTABLE

  • 5 of 5
This is a great little cottage to just get away from everything. The village and beach are a short bicycle ride or walk away but the side street its on makes it feel isolated.
Art and Linda have taken a lot of pride in making sure everything is just right and were a joy to deal with! Hope to go back.

HOW SOON CAN WE COME BACK?!

  • 5 of 5
My husband, I, and our two Wheaten Terriers absolutely loved our getaway to SSI. The cottage on Cummings Lane was ideally located a short walk away to beach, dining, and shopping in the Village. The cottage itself was perfectly appointed with everything you might need. The kitchen was thoughtfully prepared with gadgets, bakeware, mixers, tupperware, etc. The cottage had wifi and premium cable tv for those days and/or evenings when you just felt like staying in. Lots of extra blankets, towels... and the bed was COMFY!! Located on a very quiet lane, I was very proud of myself for having picked the perfect rental. Our family vacations include all of the family which means our two dogs come along every time. To have our dogs welcomed as the were all over the island left us and our warm fuzzies with a warm, fuzzy feeling. We certainly anticipate coming back soon!

Owner's Response: To all our wonderful guests from 2013…..

This was our first season as vacation rental owners of our St Simons Island cottage and what a great time we had. We feel like we made many friends along the way. You were all so kind and considerate and I had such a great time corresponding with everyone. Some of you wanted advice on things to do, restaurants, best beaches, etc and I was so glad to take the time to share the best things about this friendly, awesome, and unique island. And others were just as happy to explore on your own. But whatever the need, it was so satisfying just making sure you would be comfortable in our cottage and that the place was going to be as near perfect as possible. And, we have plans to make it even better while Linda and I get to stay there this winter; details and pictures to be updated on VRBO as they happen. Thanks again and if you’re going to be on the island this winter/early spring, please give us a call as it would be great to get together.
