About the property

Please visit our website -

Welcome to Hideaway Cottage, one of the most popular ocean front homes on St Simons Island. Fully renovated in 2013, Hideaway is beautifully decorated, has incredible ocean views, a heated private pool, a fully equipped cooks kitchen and recreation room for the kids. What really sets Hideaway apart from other vacation homes on the island are the two fully furnished decks on the ocean, one off the main living area with an outdoor dining table, fireplace and a second deck off the master bedroom on the third floor that is the perfect romantic evening retreat. Hideaway is directly on the beach, steps away from the sand, located on one of the only beaches on the island that is not tidal. A cozy den is the perfect place to watch a movie or a ball game and the sonos sound system will fill the house and outdoor decks with your favorite music to add to your vacation experience at hideaway. Bikes available for island cruising. Sleeps 13 comfortably. For those that want one of the very best the St.Simons has to offer!

About Deborah Schott

We're Brett and Kim Turner, residents of Savannah Georgia. Kim's from Connecticut and Brett from Florida. Kim's a periodontist and Brett a real estate developer and investor. We're both very active and enjoy outdoor activities such as cycling, running and yoga. We met through our mutual interest in competing in triathlons. We love to travel, art, cooking, spending time outdoors with our dogs (rescue) and, of course, escaping to our Hideaway on St Simons Island every weekend that we can! We hope that our hideaway will be a special place for you to make memories with your family or to enjoy a romantic weekend away, as it has been for us.

Deborah Schott purchased this house in 2012

Why Deborah Schott chose Coastal Georgia

We searched St Simons Island for two years before purchasing Hideaway. The beach and views were very important to us and most of St Simons Island has tidal beaches. Only a small stretch of East Beach, approximately 15 homes, are directly on the beach with views of Gould's inlet, so when Hideaway became available, we jumped at it!

What makes this house unique

We put as much into the outdoor spaces as the indoors, the outdoor living areas on the ocean are spectacular. Private heated salt water pool surrounded by palm trees, and oleanders other tropical plantings, it feels like your own tropical oasis. Kids love the first floor of the home, the beachy bunk rooms with port hole maps and the hand painted artist mural of St Simons Island on the rec room wall.

Views, views and more views!

Guestbook comments from the manager

The house was even better in person than you can imagine It was roomy enough for all eleven of us. The kitchen was well stocked. The beds were so comfortable. Views of sunrise and the beach were amazing. If you are going to St Simons this is the place to stay..

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind review! The views are really what make the house very special, we're happy to that you enjoyed them. Friends often ask us, where did you get those mattresses? We felt like very comfortable beds with nice linens were important for a high end vacation home and a lot of people comment on them , so it appears to have been worth the investment. Thank you for choosing our home, we're happy that you enjoyed your stay! Brett & Kim Turner

Great House on the beach!

  • 4 of 5

We loved this house! We stayed for a long weekend break and it was really nice. The house had nice finishes and comfortable beds. The kids loved the heated pool since it was a little too windy and cold to play at the beach. We loved the view from the house and porch! Very nice, we would definitely stay there again.

beautiful home with everything you need!

We had a group of 10 adults staying at the house and it worked out great. The kitchen and bar had everything we needed; beach location was perfect. The house was beautifully decorated with comfortable accommodations in every room.

A Splendid Babymoon at the Hideaway Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful and relaxing week at this beautiful new house on the ocean. We are used to renting big villas with large infinity private pools but the warmth and charm of the impeccably decorated oceanfront home grew on us. The views from the multiple decks were beautiful and calming. The bathrooms used l'occitane amenities and used high end materials. The home was furnished with beautiful furniture and decorated with impeccable taste. The bed, pillows and linens were so comfortable we slept like babies... even better than the cloister . The kitchen was fully equipped with marble countertops and Viking fridge and range. We couldn't get the toaster to work for some reason. The multiple walks a day on the splendid st Simon's island east beach was addictive.

The only negatives was the construction next door which we were not warned about and the pool is more of a plunge pool for the hot hot days. Fortunately, we stayed the first part of the vacation at the Cloister and got our daily swims and golf in before we came to the house.

We will miss the tranquility...
