About the property

New Luxury Cottage Great Location Duck Pond On Street

Super unique, luxurious one bedroom, one bath cottage. Always immaculately clean. Great location on quiet residential dead end street with duck and fish pond at end of street about 100 yards away. Enjoy strolling down to the duck pond to feed the ducks, fish or many turtles. To see a video tour of the cottage please check out our Facebook page, search using Brittain Vacation Rentals. The property has lots of large majestic Georgia oak trees and palm trees on the property and street. Plenty of parking. The location of this cottage is ideal being 2 1/2 miles from the beach and pier / light house and 1 mile from Sea Island. Also, very close to Harris Teeter, Island Cinema movie theater, great restaurant and shopping. Makes it perfect to ride bikes anywhere (bike path is less than 50 yards from cottage and goes all around the island). Cottage is approx. 850 sq feet including a full kitchen with microwave, stove, full refrig, dishwasher and keureg one cup coffee maker. Comes with free wireless internet that is super fast at 150 megabytes per second. Download or stream movies quickly with no problems. Washer and dryer available so you can do laundry on site. Cathedral ceiling with wood beams make this cottage exceptionally coastal elegant through out. Hardwood floors throughout exude luxury. Large main living area with flat screen TV with HD box so pictures is phenomenal. Has glass top breakfast table that is open to the glass top dining table and custom built in corner bench seating makes for a very relaxed environment. The master bed room is behind the yellow sliding barn door and has room for two and also has a flat screen TV and a DVD player. The bedroom is tastefully decorated in beach style. Off the master bedroom is a spacious spa bathroom. The design of the walk-in shower was taken from the Sea Island Club Spa. It has a special shower head that produces exceptional water volume and is like showering in a spa. Its like nothing you have ever experienced. The floor and shower are natural travertine castle stone and the shower has multiple patterns. Included with rental is a queen blow up bed that is very tall so you rest high off the floor. If the blow up bed is used the cottage can sleep four. The couch can also handle one person sleeping. The Kitchen is fully stocked with plates, cups, silver ware and items needed for cooking. A sampling of coffee pods are provided for your morning coffee enjoyment. Coffee can be enjoyed inside or outside on the spacious deck. You'll feel like you are in the tree tops with the good high views. Across the street is Harris Teeter, a large grocery store, where you can pick up fresh seafood and grill them up on the gas grill that is available to you. This cottage is located on our main family property where we live in a house that is in front of the cottage. We will gladly provide you with restaurant recommendations, directions and island activities that only locals know about. We are confident that you will be pleased with your stay in our brand new island cottage and we think it sometimes is the small details that make the biggest difference. Like a 5 port USB phone/ pad/ laptop charging tower provided so you can charge all your "things" without struggling to plug cords in behind end table or bedside tables. We think we have thought of everything to impress you. Our goal is for you to want to stay with us every time you visit Saint Simon's Island. While our listings do say pets considered we cannot accommodate dogs over 15 lbs due to the desire to keep our properties the highest quality available. As a solution to this there are several doggie hotels/daycares nearby on St. Simons less than a mile from all our rental properties. If our cottage is booked for your dates, never fear, we have four other luxury rental properties (property # 3996622, #4061158, 4014613 ). Our goal is to provide a unique experience with the highest level of luxury at the lowest price. We hope you will decide to stay with us. You will be happy you did.

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 Coastal Georgia

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.

Clean. Convenient. Great location. Private parking. Honestly, the only reason we would give this place less than 5 stars is to stop someone else from taking our spot here next year.

Lovely, lovely!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was very clean, and beautifully decorated. What made our stay especially nice was the thought that went into the details. I felt as though we were the very first ones to stay in the cottage. I especially appreciated the small blanket rolled up and waiting for me on the couch. In other rentals, in the past, I so wished for one little extra blanket. Thank you. You read my mind!! And by the way, the coffee was excellent. I usually have only one cup, but went back for a second our first morning.

Amazing place to stay! :).

  • 5 of 5

We loved this cottage! Property was spacious, charming, very clean, and close to everything and the owners were very personable and helpful and told us all the good places to eat. Daughters enjoyed the bikes, trails, and little lake full of turtles, fish, and ducks. St. Simons and Jekyll Island were a lot of fun and we had a blast. We were sad to leave and will definitely go back! ;).

Cozy, charming and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

This is our second visit to the cottage and once again we had a wonderful stay. The location is perfect and we enjoy the cottage as much as we enjoy site seeing the islands. Thank you for providing such a lovely place that feels like a home away from home. The owners are super friendly and approachable if you have any questions.

Perfect place to stay on Saint Simmons

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Saint Simmons Island - loved every minute - especially this "tree house cottage". The location is excellent and the comfort of this cottage is unmatched. We would highly recommend staying here. The owners are wonderful and very helpful if you need suggestions for places to eat of things to do. Another plus were the bikes provided - we rode all over the island. This is a 5 star place to stay!

Tree Top week for the books

  • 5 of 5

This will be my 3rd consecutive year staying at Tom and Amy's beautiful tree top cottage. That should tell you everything you need to know!! My boyfriend and I stayed for 5 days and had an amazing time. The cottage is so private, but close to all the amenities we might ever need! It rained a good portion of our trip, but being able to enjoy the full kitchen and comfortable living spaces really made our rainy vacation great. We will certainly be back!
