Description of the St Simons Island vacation cottage rental
This is a classic 1940's Island Cottage Home in a perfect location near the Village and Pier! This is not a second home with personal belongings in it, but rather a boutique cottage that we use exclusively for our guests at Island Cottage Company, a family business we started 9 years ago! We have lots of repeat guests and are happy to provide references.

Notice! There have been quite a few additions to the vacation rental market on St. Simons Island over the past year or more. This is primarily due to the economic crisis. Many homes may not be well furnished or may be in trouble financially, so make sure you do your homework!

Walk to the Village or Pier, instead of having to park, for a drink in the evening or a cup of coffee in the morning. This is especially handy for big events where parking is at a premium, such as music at the lighthouse, festivals, art shows and the fireworks during the 4th of July!

The neighborhood is quiet and friendly and has easy access to the many bicycle and walking paths that St. Simons Island has to offer.

We have three cottages so check our new site for an up to date calendar! Look for Island Cottage Company, which is our new 'official' name!

A sliding glass door leads from the bar/den to the large outdoor deck for great entertaining. A large fenced-in back yard allows the kids and dogs a good place to run. You could challenge our nextdoor neighbor G, a veteran of World War II, to a game of Horse Shoes. All the neighbors are great and we take care to ensure that our guests feel at home and respect the folks that live here permanently.

Big kids can ride down by themselves to join their friends!

Dining - From locally prepared seafood at many fine local
establishments, to some of our great southern BBQ with sweet tea, dining on St. Simons Island is always a great experience. A whole range of dining options begins in the village, just down the street. A quiet walk to and from dinner is one of our family's favorite things about living in this area!

Carnegie await you during this short 1/2 day trip.

Stacey Hewson

Lexington, SC USA

Peaceful, dog friendly cottage

We spent 3 nights on St. Simons in this lovely, quiet cottage. It's just a short walk into town and a bike ride or short drive to the beach. The cottage has a large backyard, including an outdoor shower, and everything that you need for a vacation at the beach. Michelle, the owner, met us at the cottage upon arrival and answered all of our questions about where to go to the beach, where to take the dogs, good restaurants, etc. St. Simons is very dog friendly with several restaurants that allow dogs on their outdoor patios. Even in August, the dogs were permitted on the beach in the mornings before 9 am and after 6 pm. Dogs, children, and adults all had a great time.

Owner's reply:

Thank you so much, Stacey, for taking the time to review the cottage! It was very thoughtful for you to remember us after you were home! That really means so much to me. I love what I do and I love St. Simons. I am so glad you were able to come down and enjoy the island. I hope that we will see you again!

Wonderful Place to Stay

I really wish we had found the Island Cottage Company on our previous visits, we initially wanted to stay in the Heron Cottage but it was booked and I was a little weary about the Piper Cottage but to my surprise it was the best stay we have had on the Island. we all felt very at home there and Mchelle was a wonderful host. I will forever stay with Michelle and the Island Cottage Company on all of our stays in St.Simons. I would Highly recommend this place to anyone staying on the Island.

Owner's reply:

We loved having you, Robert, and can't wait to have you back. You guys were super!

Three Months of Sun!

We returned to winter in Michigan this week, and I'm SO homesick for SSI and "our house." The Piper was perfect for us and I'd recommend any of Michele's properties in a second. They are clean, tastefully decorated, and well-stocked with kitchen supplies, lots of towels, extra pillows and blankets,.... All we needed to do was buy food. Our two little dogs LOVED the yard (and, of course, running on the beach). We loved the area and neighborhood was quiet and peaceful. My husband and I both use computers, and we were able to set up office areas in separate rooms. Having the internet and three TV's was awesome. Oh! There were lots of spices for cooking. The washer and dryer worked just fine. Michele had cleaning people come during our stay...which was lovely. You can get HOT water at any faucet within 6 seconds...and the hot water never ran out (even with company and multiple showers). It was a luxury to have 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 "family" rooms with televisions, 2 offices. I've found it's rare to get so much from a rental. There are books -- novels, cookbooks, travel guides, and magazines. If you need information during your stay, Michele is always a phone call away and very helpful. The Piper is Cozy, SUPER Clean, and well-appointed. Do not hesitate to rent this sweet home!

Michele Beveridge

Owner's reply:

Hi Connie! Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review of your stay. What a sweet and thoughtful thing to do. We hope that you are well and that your transition back up north wasn't too hard. I suspect we will see you again on SSI!

Superior!

Everything in this beautiful cottage is absolutely perfect. We could have not enjoyed our stay more and our labs agree. We look forward to our stay next year.

Owner's reply:

Phil, Thank you for taking the time to let others know about the Piper Cottage! We can't wait to see you and your cute Junior Pro golfing grandson again! We were so pleased that he won the tournament!

Perfect Time!

The island is fabulous!! Good restaurants, plenty to see and do! The Piper Cottage was perfect for us, the kids, and the dogs! The Piper is a well done, well furnished beachy feeling home away from home. The owners are attentive, friendly, and accommodating giving just the right personal touch to our arrival and stay with them. We'll be back!!!

Michele Beveridge

Owner's reply:

I am so happy that the Piper worked for you and the grandkids, Michael! Thanks you so much for leaving your comments for other guests to see. Hope to see you soon!

Comfy, cool, cottage

We actually stayed in Piper Cottage for 3 months - end of Nov. 2011 thru beginning of March 2012. It was awesome - the quintessential beach cottage. Everything we needed to relax and enjoy was provided. It really did feel like a second home. We walked into the village everyday. It was great to have wonderful dining choices and the beautiful Pier Village so nearby. We had our 3 dogs in tow and we all enjoyed the large fenced-in yard. Scott Beveridge even build a ramp from the deck to the yard to accommodate our lab who has trouble with stairs. He and Michele were the greatest. We enjoyed their friendship immensely. Highly recommend Piper Cottage, the Beveridges, and St. Simons Island. Can't wait to return next winter.

Michele Beveridge

Owner's reply:

Wow, thank you so much for posting this, Barbara! You were such a sweet and wonderful guest and I am so happy that you will be coming back to spend next winter with us!

Family Vacation

Piper Cottage is comfortable, well equiped and beautifully decorated. We enojoyed our stay very much. We had one problem noisy neighbors. We contacted our rental agent and the problem was solved within 30 mins. Highly recommend this cottage and this agency. The rest of our stay was wonderful. Try the Red Barn for dinner!

Bunny and Retrievers Avoid Winter

My two Golden Retrievers and I spent the month of January in the "cute cottage", which is aptly named. Michele (owner) made us feel welcome immediately, with wine, cheese, crackers and fruit upon our arrival--quite a treat after an 11 hour drive from KY. I loved the decor, attention to cottage "details", linen "service", and location to the adorable downtown village. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a cozy, friendly experience in a delightful place. Bunny Holman, Lexington, KY

recommended highly!

My husband and I brought our dog with us to "cute cottage" and spent a very enjoyable week there. The house was so homey and comfortable. We liked walking to the park and village. The beach was a short drive away. We liked the sunny porch in front and the large deck out back. The fully enclosed yard made time with our morning coffee carefree since our dog did not have to be supervised. The owners are wonderful people. It was a treat to get to know them. Don't miss the coffee shop in the village and the fish market in the plaza. The smoked salmon and gumbo are wonderful. We plan to return next year.

Our Saint Simons Getaway...

My fiance and I have stayed at this wonderful home on three different occasions. We would choose no other place to stay on the island. The owners have treated us like family from the first time we met. I have recommended the cottage to anyone who would listen, and my family will use both of the owners properties during our up coming wedding weekend. Don't miss out, come to SSI as soon as you can. You will never want to leave this great home!

Amy

Cozy and Adorable!

I stayed at Cute Cottage for over 30 days and absolutely loved it! The screened in porch was my favorite for relaxing outside without being in the hot Geogria sun. The backyard is huge with a grill and nice deck for a BBQ. Owner is very responsive to any needs and offers services not often found in other long term or even short term rentals (free cleaning, laundering of linens, basic supplies such as soaps, detergent, beach towels, paper towels, etc). Quiet, friendly neighborhood is perfect for families with small children and the St. Simon's pier area is a short walk for adults! Highly recommend this property and will be looking to stay again if I go back to the area.
