About Thomas & Amy Brittain
My wife and I are retired and enjoy living on St. Simons Island.We both grew up in Virginia and still have family there.
Thomas & Amy Brittain purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Thomas & Amy Brittain chose St Simons Island
We originally built the cottage as a guest house for our family and friends to come visit us and enjoy the island. We have used HomeAway / VRBO when we travel and just love it, so we decided to try it out for the cottage. It has been a wonderful experience and easy to manage. We enjoy meeting so many different people that come and stay in the cottage and we enjoy sharing our passion, which is property design and decorating.
What makes this Cottage unique
Our cottage is very unique in the fact that was designed and decorated after the architecture and style of the Cloister spa and hotel. It has a open floor plan, tall cathedral ceiling with dark wooden beams. The floor is dark stained and the walls are beach white with a awesome yellow barn door. Every detail from small and large were meticulously thought out. There is a adorable duck pond at the end of the street that has duck, fish, turtles and fish that love to be feed and that will come right up to you. The driveway to the cottage is about 100 yards from the main road on the island, Fredericka Rd., so the bike paths are within 100 yards of the cottage I also recently put up an adjustable basketball goal, so you can shoot baskets if you like. The cottage is super relaxing. All windows have screens, so if you like a nice beach breeze coming in you can have it.

This is a beautiful cottage, great location, and the owners provide so many extras! Heated towels went perfect with the super size sauna syle shower! This was truly a wonderful vacation. The owners have done a spectacular job at keeping the place fresh, clean & up to date, and their hospitality was second to none!. I would recommend this to everyone!!!
Thank you so much for the great review. It is so rewarding when all the little things we do get recognized. Please come back and stay anytime. We have five other properties to suite everyone's needs. Tom and Amy
The cottage was indeed very unique, bright and cheerful, as well as clean and well appointed.
We enjoyed our stay at the cottage and our first visit to SSI. The accommodations were very comfy, bright and cheery as well as being clean and well appointed. The bed was super comfortable. We liked that we could walk to the movie theater, restaurants and shops. We would highly recommend the trolley to get all the history of the area and see the island. We would definitely stay at this cottages again.
This unique cottage was exactly like the pictures ! The owners have gone out of their way to make this a 5 star experience ! It was clean and comfortable ! The bed and pillows were heavenly . We had everything we needed . It is close to many shops and great restaurants . Not seafood , but we loved Sal,s pizza , right down the road . We got there at 5 and within 10 minutes it was packed . We drove to Darien , Ga. to try Skipper's restaurant . I had peel and eat shrimp, and it tasted like it had just been brought in from the boat , not to mention LARGE!
It is a short drive to the beautiful beach and pier on St Simons . My husband went deep sea fishing and caught 12 barracudas ! I brought my bike and enjoyed the bike trails. There is so much history on St .Simons. Epworth Methodist Conference Center is beautiful . We tried to hit every historical place on the Island !
If you've never been to Jekyll Island , it is worth driving the short distance there ! There is much history ! We had planned on taking the trolley around Jekyll but a thunderstorm prevented us from doing that . I think the last trolley goes out at 4.
The owners were great to work with , and we would not hesitate to stay there again !
Thank you kindly for the awesome review. This is exactly why we work so hard to provide a one of a kind stay at a very fair price. You nailed it! We welcome you back anytime to the cottage or any of our other five properties. Tom and Amy.
Great little place.
Great place to stay! The photos don’t do it justice. The owners were so accommodating and thought of everything. It’s a little far out from the village but we got around fine. I’ll book again.
We are so happy that you loved and enjoyed the cottage We would love to have you back. It is two and a half miles to the pier area from the cottage. SSI is a small island at two miles wide by fourteen long, so getting anywhere is quick and easy. We have heard that the rentals close to the pier can be noisy, crowded and way more expensive.The cottage is quiet, private and relaxing, being referred to as the tree top cottage. Tom and Amy
Perfect fit for our small family
My wife and I absolutely loved this property. We have been to St. Simon's before and thoroughly enjoyed this place. We have two small kids and they loved all the decor as well as not having to stay in a hotel with nothing to do. There is a large selection of board games as well as books. It was quite nice to hang out after a day at the beach an get our bearings before heading into town. The price was extremely affordable and we will definitely be back!
Comfortable and convenient
We had a great experience staying in this studio apartment style condo. It is located centrally on the island and not far from Redfern Village or The Pier. We had complete privacy and the amenities provided were nice. Although it rained the entire time we were there, this comfortable abode made our time very pleasant. The decor is beach chic and it brightened up the moods that rain tends to bring when at the beach. Thanks for opening up your property to us! If we ever venture that way again, I will surely be contacting you to stay.
The bike path is only 50 feet from the driveway and you can bike all over the island. The public beach is only a little over a mile away. The pier and pier shopping is just two mile away. Harris Teeter shopping center is right across the street for convenient shopping. Check out our Facebook page for a video tour of the cottage. Brittain Vacation Rentals.
