About Darlene Craven
Islanders for 35 years! Owner of The Swing Set Children's Boutique on the Island and Amelia Island for 25 years. My husband is a writer and theologian. We will be closing our store 2016 to retire.. We would like to be free to travel and visit our grown four children who are leading much more interesting lives than our own. Our oldest is a film director in LA. He was the Dreamworks storyboard director for KungFu Panda and is now directing his own cartoon movie that will be out in 3 years. Our daughter in Nashville is a therapist and has our four beautiful grandchildren. She painted the murals and furniture in the beach house. Our second son flips houses in Nashville and is a singer/song writer. Our youngest son is a pro-soccer player for Seattle Sounders. Can't help but brag on them as we are so proud and blessed as they have enriched our lives so much! Love to hear about your family and travels!
Why Darlene Craven chose Saint Simons Island
Less than five min walk to the beach or leave your car at home and avoid parking hassles going out to the beach or out to eat. Rent bikes and have the run of the island! Just a short walk to village and many amazing places to dine! Our guest rave over this vacation home, pool and location!
What makes this House unique
On a quiet private street amongst century old oak trees yet right in the hub of St. Simons! The pool is larger than most private homes - you can actually swim and play games in it! Spa heats up in 20 min and the pool can be heated for a gas fee in the colder months. It has an outdoor hot and cold shower for returning trips from the beach. Tall ivy covered privacy fences in the side and back yard give plenty of privacy and safety.
Pet fee is $175. Two pets $275.
100% refund for cancellations more than 30 days before check-in date. 50% refund for cancellations more than 14 days before check-in date.
Don't listen to the reviewer who claimed that this renter isn't friendly to college kids. I was in a group of four 21 year olds and we were warmly welcomed upon arrival and were attended to as needed throughout the trip. Just follow the rules of the house (which are truly not a hassle).
This house made our trip so lovely--it was truly perfect. Everything we needed and more. The kitchen was so cute and had all of the pots, pans, etc. that we needed to cook dinners, as well as a very nice coffee maker and dishwasher. The living room was comfy and intimate with an awesome smart TV. All of the bedrooms and bathrooms were so clean and comfortable, we felt right at home. And last but certainly not least, the pool. The backyard was SO lovely, with a pool and jacuzzi that we used every single night because it was so nice.
Darlene was so kind and left straight-forward instructions for us to follow which made things seamless and easy. She went out of her way to take care of us, even though she had a family emergency, and we are truly grateful for that. I have been to St Simons so many times, but I really think this was the best trip so far because of this house. Thank you so much for having us in your home!
What a find!
Vacationed in St. Simons for years, and this is our favorite. Amazing location. Walked to beach, walked to breakfast in "the village," walked to the pier. Love the house off the beaten path, but close to all the fun spots. Pool was great for laps and fun for kids. The Jacuzzi was the perfect end to the day! Heated the pool so it was great. Kitchen perfectly equipped, and we enjoyed grilling out by the pool a few nights (when we weren't so tired we fell asleep on the couch watching a movie ha ha.)
Clean, comfortable, cozy. Highly recommended. Darlene was a pleasure to deal with and accommodated all our needs. Easy choice, our top spot now.
Felt like home!
Our family of 8 had an amazing time at the house! It truly felt like home. The pool and hot tub are amazing! We will definitely be back to Sherman Cottage! Darlene is wonderful to deal with.

Property was most excellent. Very nicely decorated and lots of room
We had the best time st simons island. House is so nice and just a very short walk to the beach.
Located in a family-friendly neighborhood,(great for bike rides or walking) It is just a football field length walk to the beach or the village/pier/restaurants/parks - on a quiet street with no traffic yet right in the middle of everything with a privacy fenced-in-pool large enough to swim and play games in and a jacuzzi that heats up in just 20 min.
