Coastal Georgia Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Interior size: approx 2994 sf

Address: 25 Coast Cottage Lane, St. Simons Island, GA 31522

Emil Cottage was featured in Coastal Living Magazine and is truly one of America's coastal masterpieces. It was a memorable stop on St. Simons Island's prestigious Tour of Homes and was also showcased on HGTV. Located just a short stroll from the Atlantic Ocean, describing it is almost as much fun as staying in it! Coastal nostalgia, beach deco, port side eclectic ... any way you say it, Emil is a sensual delight.

From its Charleston side porch entry to a working Wurlitzer juke box on the main floor, you'll find surprises everywhere you look. But don't be fooled by the visual feast. Emil is teeming with casual comfort as well. The first floor features three generously appointed guest bedrooms, each with its own private bath. The second floor is an open plan with gourmet kitchen, large central dining area and living room with hand crafted shell fireplace. The third floor master suite pampers you with stunning views, sitting area with wet bar, large private bath with terrazzo Jacuzzi tub and the most eye-wakening shower you have ever seen!

There's plenty of outside space too with roomy porches and decks on every level, including the roof where you get a 360 degree panorama of ocean, marsh and sky. The views are magnificent inside and out at Emil Cottage!

Located in award winning Coast Cottages at St. Simons, Emil guests enjoy privileges at the neighborhood's fabulous pools and pavilion with a boardwalk leading to St. Simons' widest stretch of sand. You can walk the beach here at high tide, low tide ... any tide! (Note: vacation rentals south of Arnold Road cannot make this claim.)

So load up the station wagon for a vacation that will relax and rejuvenate your entire family.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We loved this cottage! Coast Cottages is our favorite place to rent at St. Simons and we have rented multiple cottages in the past. Emil is definitely the new favorite! The only minor complaint was that check in was supposed to be at 4:00 and the house was not ready until almost 5:00.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house, and it worked perfectly for our family of 6. Our kids loved all the games in the living room, and the jukebox and neon lobster were their favorites. :) The rooftop balcony was a great place to see fireworks on the 4th of July, and the location of the house was great for getting to the beach or taking a dip in the pool. We loved all the decor, and the third floor master suite was a plus. Patrick was also great and very helpful. We had a wonderful week!

Our long-term stay at Emil Cottage was a wonderful time our family will not soon forget. The house is truly unique and the décor further sets it apart. The third story balcony is a great place to relax with a view of the ocean, a view made better by the neighbor’s house sitting back further off the road due to the roundabout. The roof top balcony provides even more ocean views. Check in and out was simple and painless. The house was clean with excellent appliances. It’s just an easy walk to the pools and ocean. So close, you can hear the ocean at night from the master suite.

Patrick was very personable, always available, and very prompt at addressing any issues. He took much of the worry out of our trip across the country.

Holiday trip

  • 5 of 5

Emil cottage was LOVELY - the perfect home for a family with a lot of children, or two families. The location is excellent, the décor so fun and quirky, the pool heated, the beach just a stone's throw away, the kitchen fantastic, on and on. Patrick, the property manager, made our arrival and departure so easy and was available for questions during our stay. We would absolutely go back again and again! Thank you!

Our family loved our stay!

  • 4 of 5

This was our first trip to St Simons and a great time was had by my whole family. My boys LOVED the house, particularly the jukebox and the rooftop deck. The decorations were unique in a fun kind of way. We loved how the house was laid out with the master on the top floor and the guest bedrooms on the bottom. The upper floor was my favorite area. The photos in the listing are pretty reflective of what the house looks and feels like!

Coastal retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was my first trip to St. Simon having taken all my beach trips to the Florida panhandle. This property was beautiful and the beach was amazing. All the amenities you could ask for in a beach property. Short walk to the pools and beach. Easy biking into town. The cottage was well maintained, clean and beautifully decorated. AND a jukebox that was a real hit. It had all the comforts of home including a fabulous kitchen. The entire property was well maintained and had a great mix of familys and singles.

More importantly, the property management was fantastic. Super friendly and responsive. I discovered that I had left a valuable necklace in the cottage after returning home and Patrick wasted no time in hunting it down and gettng it shipped back to me! His quick response and concern was greatly appreciated. I would definitely recommend a stay at Emil Cottage.

Perfect for a week at the beach

  • 5 of 5

The house is gorgeous! Some may even say over-decorated, but I thought it was just out of a magazine. Every detail was taken care of. Nice having a fellow on site walking around as 'property manager' who seemed to know all of the ins and outs. We were there over July 4th. Coastal Cottages is right next to the public beach. This mean the beach was PACKED on the 4th, but we found it to be fun. They were a little nuts with the amateur fireworks that night, but you can see professional displays from Sea Island, St. Simons and Jekyll all at the same time. Private security was there to make sure no one entered the parking lot of the cottages without a pass. Very nice touch. Thanks for the hospitality!
