About the property

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 St Simons Island

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!

absolutely wonderful

  • 5 of 5

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

Private home with luxury amenities, and beautiful ocean views

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay on St. Simon's Island, and at The Hideaway Cottage. The owners have taken great care to assure the property is equipped with amenities and luxuries that are consistent with this price point. We especially enjoyed the house wide Sono's system, the ice maker at the wet bar, and the sun decks off the master suites. The kitchen is well equipped, and the sitting area adjacent is ideal for morning coffee or intimate conversation. We are grateful the owners opened the home to our family to experience this wonderful home and ideal coastal location.

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

The home was very clean and the kitchen was fully stocked with everything you would need. The only thing it was lacking was an mother-in-law had a difficult time going up and down the stairs. Otherwise we had a wonderful, relaxing vacation!

We had a few issues with the shower and the pool heater. The pool was sandy when we arrived

  • 4 of 5

However the house is beautiful and well laid out. Good proximity to the beach. Loved the ping pong. The basement bedrooms were not scared. Starbucks was close. Great crabbing. Loved the outdoor fireplace for roasting marshmallows. Great smores'!! Needs directions for appliances. The property manager was very nice and responded to our needs promptly

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, we are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us at Hideaway Cottage. We're sorry about the issues you had with the shower and pool heater. We do our best to stay on top of maintenance and always strive to have the house ready for our guests. It is a little challenging during the summer season as we have a check out / check in every saturday, so there is no downtown for preventative maintenance. We will speak to our pool maintenance company about doing a better job vacuuming the pool before check ins. Hopefully, all the things you enjoyed about our home outweighed the few inconveniences. But, know that we take the issues you raised seriously and will do our best to correct in the future. Thanks again for the rental, I hope you will choose our home again for future vacations.
