Sea Island House Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful 6 bedroom, 7.5 bath home at 14th on Sea Island Drive w/ Pool and Spa

Originally designed by Francis Abreu and built in 1936, Cottage 76 has been recently restored and expanded with a thoughtful, integrated design by Jack Davis to become one of Sea Island’s finest retreats. This ground-up renovation and expansion retains the original charm of old Sea Island coupled with modern conveniences and easy living. Cottage 76 is located on 14th Street and Sea Island Drive, steps from the beach (third row, beach side) and a short walk or bike ride to Sea Island’s world-class amenities including the Sea Island Beach Club, Cloister Hotel, Spa and Fitness Center and Tennis facilities. Families familiar with this location seek it out year after year because it is close enough to be convenient, but just far enough to be out of the fray on popular weekends.

Features. Cottage 76 was redesigned to accommodate large families, multiple families, extended families or small groups and provides comfortable space and privacy with the ability to gather or dine together in the main family room. The home centers around a giant 300+ year-old Live Oak tree in a courtyard that provides a canopy to envelop the whole house. Cottage 76 features a grand family room designed for entertaining with a historic chandelier from the old Cloister Hotel serving as the centerpiece of the room’s vaulted ceiling. The large chef’s kitchen flows from the family room and includes custom granite counters, Sub Zero refrigerator, Wolf six-top gas range, double ovens, double dishwashers, double sinks and includes everything you need to host a simple lunch or a grand feast. Everyone can watch the big game on the 70-inch HD TV.

Across the courtyard from the family room is a large den with a giant original fireplace and wood-paneled walls and ceiling with three sets of French doors to access the outside. This room also features a 60-inch flat screen TV and is adjacent to the “monkey” bar, an original galley bar and prep area. Cottage 76 was designed for comfort and the enjoyment of the outdoors and beautiful views of the trees, Sea Island Drive and the large in-ground pool and spa, with four separate balconies and porches upstairs and two screened areas downstairs.

At Cottage 76, it is easy to find a great nook to read a book or share a glass of wine. With a Weber gas grill off the Family Room and Green Egg on the side “fish cleaning” porch, there are plenty of options for cooking and entertaining.

Accommodations: The home has two master suites with king beds (one upstairs and one on the main) and a third junior master suite with a queen bed, one guest room with two full beds, a guest room with a King bed, and a guest room over the garage with twin over full bunk beds and another 60 inch LCD HD TV, which is great for video games (game console not included) or giving the kids a place to “hang out” on the occasional rainy day. Each bedroom features a newly renovated private bath, new mattresses and new bedding with 400-thread count sheets for restful and comfortable sleep.

Cottage 76 offers a one-car garage for rental guests and off-street parking in the front and on 14th Street. An elevator from the garage is available for your use if needed.

Cottage 76 also has a covered storage area at the closest access to the beach to provide a place for you to drop your beach toys and chairs before jumping into the large pool.

Other amenities include child dishes and cups for small children, cable HD television, smart TV, all linens, towels, beach towels chairs and wireless internet access.

Temporary access to all Sea Island amenities (golf, spa, beach club, workout facilities, tennis, horse back riding, etc.) may be purchased directly from Sea Island through our membership. Daily and weekly passes are available.

Please consider Cottage 76 for your next beach vacation, family reunion or get together. Cottage 76 is not available for groups of more than 16 people and is not available for college students or groups under age of 26. Please note the deposit requirements for rental of Cottage 76.

Stunning Beach Side Cottage with 6 BR/7.5 Ba in Prime Sea Island Locale
average rating of 5.0 based on 13 reviews

Awesome house, perfect for large families with all ages!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this house on 4 different vacations, 4 years in a row and we absolutely love it!! The house is laid our perfectly for large families. Master suite and kids bunk room is on one side of the upstairs separated by a walk way with 3 bedrooms for couples, friends or middle-older aged children on the other side. This allows for adult activities as well as kid activities without disturbing either. Great common area, living room and kitchen for hanging out with everyone. The house is spread out enough that even with our family of 12 you have plenty of space and can take a break from the group easily if needed. The pool and outside area are a great place to take a break from the beach club, cook out or hang. The house is extremely close to the beach and a short bike or golf cart ride to the beach club and the cloister. Far enough away that you're not in the middle of the traffic that surrounds the beach club in high season. I would highly recommend this house, it's comfortably laid out and has everything you need for a fun family vacation.

This was the second year we rented this house...but certainly not the last. The property is at once both supremely comfortable and supremely convenient. There is real spread out room and a place for everyone, you got old. For those who like to cook, the kitchen is superb and well equipped.

This house is the perfect house the perfect location.

A fabulous place for a special family gathering!

  • 5 of 5

As part of our 50th anniversary celebration we spent a week with our two children and their families, a total of 6 adults and 4 children, ages 2-9. Each family unit had its own wing and we all appreciated the privacy as well as the spacious and elegant accommodations. Since there are three master suites, no one had to settle for a lesser room. The older kids loved the large bunk room with a large TV. The house also has wonderful gathering spaces for the times we spent together, including a very large living room, a spacious well-equipped kitchen, and a wonderful courtyard with pool and hot tub. It was a pleasure to be in a house that was beautifully renovated but still retained its historical charm. The heated swimming pool and the proximity to the beach provided endless entertainment, especially for the younger set. Halyard's Catering provided several excellent 'drop-off' dinners and one spectacular chef-cooked dinner at the house. The food was excellent. Sea Island Photography did a family photo shoot capturing wonderful images of family groups and informal shots of the children. The Island is beautiful for walks on the beach and along the shaded streets. We really did not go out very much as we were comfortable, entertained, and happy staying where we were.

We have visited Sea Island a number of times and this house was , by far, the best ever, It is large yet extremely welcoming. The location is ideal. We vacation every year with a close friend and his children and this year they brought guests. We had other guests also. Our party included everyone from young teens to mature adults. There was plenty of room for all with privacy for every age group. The house is beautifully appointed and fresh. No detail was overlooked and it was truly like being in my own home. Our "gal Friday" was as helpful as I could have wanted. You will not find a better house on Sea Island. Next year we plan to book the same house and extend our vacation. There is NOTHING I would change about this magnificent home.

A great house.

  • 5 of 5

We found the home to be a great place for our large family with many areas both inside and out to gather or be by ones self. The bedrooms were very comfortable and everything was well equipped.

There was plenty of parking room and a beautiful yard to enjoy. It was very convenient to the beach access.

If you're interested in Sea Island, it's a great house to have as your starting point for enjoying your vacation. We would definitely come back to this property again. The property manager was most helpful.
