Located on a quiet tree canopied St. Simons Island street. Our home will provide you with the perfect vacation retreat you have been looking for. Quiet , Serene beach cottage will provide total relaxation, and the ability to enjoy island living from the second you arrive! Easy off street parking in front of the house makes it convenient.
We are in the very best location on the island, just a 10 minute walk(.04 miles) to the beach and 15 minute stroll( .07 miles) to the village to great dining and shopping. You are welcome to bicycle around the island as well with 5 bikes in the shed for your convenience. In addition the village has great sites like the Lighthouse and Pier which you will find the most awesome sunsets! Cummings lane is peaceful, quiet with no traffic at all. The street is only one block long and you will see more people walking or biking if any. Privacy, seclusion awaits you!!
The house itself is cozy, comfortable with a great screened in front porch for relaxing. the floor plan is open, very cozy in feel with original hardwood floors. There are 3 bedrooms, the front room with 2 single beds, the second bedroom with a queen bed, and the master suite with a queen bed on a power adjustable base, and bath suite.
The house has been completely updated and remodeled which adds to the charm of it. We call it "Kismet" as it always has been our "destiny". You will agree as well after spending time there!
The cottage has all that you will need for a great vacation getaway and so we provide all the basic essentials we could think of. In addition to typical items like toilet paper, paper towels, napkins and tissues we also provide plastic bags, wrap, laundry supplies, hand soap, dishwasher soap coffee filters, spices, and beach towels. When you arrive at Kismet you are ready to start relaxing and winding down. The local Winn-dixie is a 7 minute drive and you will only need the food you need. We have everything else you need!
You will also find fresh cut flowers in the cottage to add to your experience. We want you to feel that it’s your home every second of your stay! In addition the yard is fenced in and when we say "pet friendly" we mean it. Doggie door out the front door as well as the porch door! Total enjoyment for all!!
We will make every effort to provide you with a comfortable home away from home, great service when needed, and an overall ideal island vacation experience.

Exceeded our expectations!
This adorable beach-y cottage has everything you need and more. Our family enjoyed our first Christmas on SSI, and couldn’t have been more pleased with our stay. The owner even put up a Christmas tree and decór throughout to make us feel at home!! The kitchen has everything you need to make a big Christmas brunch, as we did, or the average meal :) The couch is so so comfy, the beds- to die for. I didn’t want to get up in the morning— like a cloud! And the screened in porch was a favorite spot every morning for our coffee. Also, location is perfect- so close to the beach! I could go on and on. Stay here- you won’t be disappointed!!
Angie A. Thank you for the kind words regarding your experience in the Kismet Cottage. We are so glad your stay for Christmas exceeded your expectations! WE hoe we can accommodate you again in 2018!
You are always welcome here!!!

The Cutest Beach Cottage!!!
My husband, pup, and I immediately loved this adorable beach cottage! We cannot wait to return next year for our birthday trip!
Perfect everything. Cottage,decor,supplies,etc.
Very quite and peaceful. Close to everything. Lacks absolutely nothing. Perfect beach setting. One of the few we have looked at that has more to offer than the pics portray. We will be back.
Quiet St Simon cottage
The Kismet cottage is located on a quiet side street in St. Simon. The cottage is located from our estimation 1.2 miles from East Beach (where there rest rooms, etc), 0.8 miles from basic beach access off Arnold Road, and 0.6 miles from the St Simon's village. This mean't the cottage was accessible to all of this either by bicycle or walking. The cottage had everything needed for 4 adults and a dog. The cottage was well equipped with everything needed. Plenty of parking for 3 cars.
Thanks for the great review Darrell R.!
We are so happy you enjoyed your stay! Hope to be able to accommodate you again.

Perfect Vacation Rental
"Kismet" is everything you want in a rental: Clean, comfortable, decor with personality, plenty of room (we were 6 adults...5 guys and a Mom). Plenty of fresh towels, coffee, kitchen supplies...literally everything you need. The porch is a wonderful gathering place for morning coffee, reading, a game of cards and "happy hour". A short walk to the beach, lighthouse, restaurants and shops. Plenty of parking (we had 2 SUV's). The yard is large enough for a game of frisbee or badminton. Quiet neighborhood. Our family uses VRBO for all of our Spring Break rentals....this one was one of our favorites.
Julie B. we thank you for your kind words and we are so happy you enjoyed your stay in our home! You are always welcome here!!!

Kismet cottage was nicely decoratrd with antiques, positive affirmations, and beach decore. The beds were comfortable and the house was clean. We stayed here with three dogs; two Springer Spaniels who are used to country living and a Chocolate Lab ; as well as a toddler, and four adults. I worried that my grandaughter might fht get a splenter from the rustic coffee table; but, she did not. The biggest drawback was a lack of privacy. We would let the dogs out for bathroom breaks; but, frequently there were people walking their dogs, or the person across the street came and went a lot, or there were Fedex trucks or some reason the dogs would bark. We were not able to utilize the front porch as much because i didn’t want my dogs to disturb the neighbors by barking. There was more dirt than grass in the yard but the owners are working on it and they had nice flower borders. The first impression is a little tarnished because the house next to it is in severe need of paint and yard maintanence; yet, I hear an elderly person lives there so if someone had unlimited time and resorces, then a good deed would be waiting for them if the owner wanted help. Other than that, the inside of the house was cute and very functional. I have happy memories of my grandaughter’s first beach trip and I would go back in a heart beat.
Tracy F. we thank you for your kind words and hope you return to our home in the future!
