St. Simons Island Cottage Rental Photos and Description
1 Bedroom, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2)

Situated at the entrance to the Sea Island causeway, Black Banks Plantation is a unique and charming neighborhood, named for the original Black Banks Plantation house, built in 1801. The Cottage which was built in 1920 as a carriage house for the Plantation, is nestled a short distance from the main house, amid large, old live oaks and overlooks your very own private heated pool, outdoor kitchen and outdoor fireplace. All for your EXCLUSIVE use!

And now a special coupon for Black Banks Cottage guests to use at the unique jewelry design studio of 'Gold & Grace'

Features & Amenities: The house was completely renovated and decorated within the last several years and offers all the luxury, warmth and charm needed to make the most of a stay on this wonderful island, including upstairs deck and downstairs courtyard, luxury linens, fully functional kitchen and top-of-the-line Bosch washer & dryer! Enjoy this vacation paradise any time of year; mild winters are perfect for a swim in the heated pool and a snuggle by the fireplace.

(Quickly becoming the 'go-to' spot for a romantic celebration, we have been delighted at the number of anniversaries shared at the Cottage! And with a number of Honeymoons already scheduled, it appears that romance is truly in the air!)

And the romantic and relaxing options are many! Swim, cook outside on the large, built-in gas grill, throw a log on the gas-assisted outdoor fireplace and relax or put on your party shoes and head out for a gracious dinner at the nearby Cloister or Halyard's before going to Ziggy Mahoney's for dancing!

When you're done, come 'home' to this quiet, comfortable and charming alternative to the busy condo scene.

Other Activities: We are located several miles from the beautiful beach at East Beach at the Coast Guard Station and across the causeway from Sea Island beaches and the beautiful Cloister resort (membership required for entry).

First Time At St. Simons

Beautiful place with privacy-didn't even miss the beach, which is a bit of a distance from the cottage. There is a Harris Teeter and a CVS for every need, very close-by.
The cottage was delightful and welcoming. I was able to combine my school work, wedding obligations and relaxation very nicely. Highly recommend.
The outdoor dining area was exceptional, and the private pool was extremely relaxing.
The listing was accurate. We did have a difficult time with the dryer which had a broken handle making it difficult to open. The property was very clean and attention to detail was right on target.
Recommended for:  Age 55+, Sightseeing, Romantic Getaway
Owner's Response: Thanks so much! It was a pleasure to have you stay at Black Banks ;-) So sorry the dryer handle was broken! (The part is in and has been replaced but that was a nuisance, I'm sure.)
We appreciate your visit and your review and hope you'll be able to come again another time!
Best wishes,
Kate

Our daughter and brand-new son-in-law spent their first night together in this beautiful little cottage. Before you even get inside, the outside is incredibly charming! The inside is delightful and perfect for two. A great getaway for a couple. They loved it! Thanks so much!
Recommended for:  Romantic Getaway
Owner's Response: It was an honor to have them on such a special occasion! They were great and it was hard to tell anyone had even been there :-) Thanks!

My husband and I love to stay at Black Banks Cottage. It is clean, cozy, and close enough...but far enough away ~ allowing privacy, great bike rides, great food, and fun in the sun. We plan to make this a yearly trip celebrating happiness! It really does feel like our home away from home!

Today we have sat on the deck watching little green and brown lizards, listening to birds and taking in all the beauty of Black Banks. I wonder how it compares to the Garden of Eden? We could not have picked a more beautiful place to begin our journey in life. Thanks so much for the serenity of Black Banks Cottage.

Perfect weather, a little bit of beach a little bit of history, a little bit of Village, a Bridge run, and a lot of relaxing at Black Banks Cottage makes for a happy Tennessee couple on SSI!! Thanks for making our anniversary and my birthday stay the best it could be :-)

I just wanted to thank you both for such a great time! My sister and I really enjoyed ourselves - also, thank you so much for your help with my flat tire - Ray was so sweet and helpful.

Thank you for the beautiful cottage. We loved our home away from home here at Black Banks- it was so dreamy, peaceful and magical. A perfect place to enjoy a part of our honeymoon. The cosy home, the pool the gorgeous trees and the lovely setting - so perfect. We will always treasure our memories made here on this island.
