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

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.

The Making Memories Cottage was such a wonderful place to stay! The short walk to both the beach and places to eat made it in such a prime location! I will definitely recommend this cottage to anyone looking to stay here!

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.

Great location, very comfortable. Second time here. Only complaint is a few light bulbs were burned out. On in the vent hood in particular. Will rent again.

Great little house!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at St. Simons Island. The house was perfect for our four grand children and sister-in-law. My oldest grandson said it best. It's small on the outside and big on the inside. It is decorated perfectly for the beach. So relaxing and comfortable! It is a very short, nice walk to the beach, which was clean and not very crowded at all. Just a fabulous time at a fabulous house. We will definitely stay there again.
