Super-quaint beach cottage in the village
September 25, 2015
The Seagull, owned and managed by the lovely and cool Michele Beveridge of The Island Cottage Company, is an ideal place to stay on St. Simon's. It's right in the village within easy walking distance of the pier, lighthouse, Neptune Park, shopping and tons of great restaurants and bars. It's a very short bike ride or drive to the best beach near the King & Prince and the coast guard station. With 3 bedrooms and two baths, it will easily accommodate 6-8 people. The cottage is beautifully AND comfortably decorated in a classic, beach vibe, but with a tasteful, premium style. There are 2 large family rooms with nice, flat-screen TVs and DVD player. Michele has outfitted this cottage with everything you could possibly need to live there, year-round, including pots and pans, dishes, silverware, all sorts of beverage and wine glasses, cooking utensils, plush towels, beach towels, and even skewers and proper implements for the gas grill. There's a huge, fenced back yard with a comfortable deck and lush, established landscaping. The outdoor shower comes in handy too, after a day at the beach with two smelly dogs! Michele lives in the same area and couldn't be a friendlier, more hospitable hostess, sharing lots of interesting, island history and must-see/must-do recommendations. She even sent me a pre-vacation package of local menus and info on things to see and do, once I got there. And upon my arrival, I discovered a bottle of wine, cheese and other snacks awaiting me. I would recommend this cottage to anyone, and will rent it again, next time I visit St. Simon's.
