About The Owner

We have always loved coming to St. Simons to visit family and have dreamed of owning a home here. In the spring 2010 we stumbled upon a little cottage that needed help. After months of renovations and collecting furniture we moved in! It has become a retreat from our crazy everyday lives. Jim's Grandmother, Nannie, used to look around at a family gathering and say, 'Look, we're making memories.' We hope to spend many happy years 'Making Memories' here. We hope to to share it with others as well.

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why The Owner chose Coastal Georgia

We have always loved the simplicity of this sweet island, the ablity to walk to the beach, ride bikes, eat wonderful seafood and just hang out.

Perfect vacation home for a small family

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 3 loved this house. It's a quick hop to the beach and some of the best island dining, plus a 10-minute bike ride (if that!) to the village. The kitchen is well-provisioned, as are the bathrooms. The furniture and beds are comfortable and cozy. When we noticed some minor issues, the host was very responsive. We will stay here again!

Cute cottage with plenty of space in great location

  • 5 of 5

We booked our stay for a week at the Making Memories Cottage from August 6-August 13, 2016. My boyfriend and I brought my teenage son and his friend and selected the cottage based on the location and property description. It was our first time on the island and at 7 days we had plenty to do and see.

Check in and out was a breeze and all went smoothly. The location was great. 5 minutes to the beach and close to town and there was plenty of parking in front. We were able to get around the island easily and it definitely felt safe giving the boys some freedom to come and go.

The cottage was adorable - clean and well maintained and lovingly remodeled in the style of Fixer Upper (my fave). The beds were comfortable and we had plenty of space. The kitchen was well stocked and everything was easy to find. You can tell the owners take great care of this property.

It would be perfect for 2 families as it has 2 queen beds and essentially bunk space for 4 kids. Plus there was a cute sunroom where they could play. My boys hooked up their PS4 and were away from everyone else, which was great. And the front porch swing was awesome to watch folks ride by on their bikes.

Recommendations: Southern Soul BBQ, Crabdaddy's (right down the street), Del Sur (for a great Argentinian steak) and Sandcastle Cafe for breakfast. We enjoyed the trolley tour on our first full day to get a lay of the land and it was only 2 hours so a perfect morning activity. We also loved the day trip to Little St. Simons island (book in advance as its only one day a week) The boys LOVED charter fishing with Captain Greg at Georgia Charter Fishing. They caught some sharks and thought that was the best thing ever! We also went to Jekyll Island for the day and loved Great Dunes Beach, the Turtle Sanctuary and photo opportunities at Driftwood Beach (a must see!). We went to East Beach several times and also to the beach next to the King and Prince (closest to property). The pier and village was fun for people watching, shopping and enjoying the restaurants.

I would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking to come to the island and would happily stay there again.

Perfect relaxing stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house because it was clean, was a perfect location and decorated very nicely. Loved how the house was able to expand with having bunk beds but still had the small house feel. We would definitely recommend it and will be back again :)

Such a great little cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay on SSI. The "Making Memories" cottage is such a great base for your trip to the golden isles. Everything was bright, fresh, and so comfortable. The house is well appointed, and at the same time family friendly. The owners have done a top notch job renovating this historic cottage. The updated kitchen makes cottage meals so easy; and you can also walk to so many of the best restos on the island. We had our bikes so we could ride everywhere. The rooms are spacious and you'll find ample storage space for your family's affairs. Check in and out were very simple! We felt lucky to have found this place. And most importantly, the owners were so pleasant, quick to respond and wonderful to work with. They made us feel so welcome! A huge thank you to Jennifer and her family! We would definitely stay again.

Cute Cottage in Great Location

  • 4 of 5

This adorable cottage is in a great location on the island, just a block from a couple very good restaurants. We enjoyed the nice open kitchen/living area -- the kitchen is very well stocked with everything you need to cook and a beautiful counter space to eat. The master bed is super comfortable with high quality linens. The shower is huge! It's very tastefully decorated in a coastal theme. It was only the two of us, but if you had a family or another couple, there is plenty of room for everyone.
