An amazing house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a large crowd in town for a wedding and the house accommodated everyone perfectly. The furnishings are beautiful and comfortable. The luxurious and stylish decorating made the house feel special and the guests feel pampered. Everyone had their own private space, but we also had plenty of spaces for everyone to gather together. The best part was coming home in the evening after festivities and the whole family gathering around an amazing family table laughing and telling stories. The table gets a big thumbs up. The master was so big everyone would gather there in their PJs in the morning and have coffee together. It really was the perfect house for a crowd or a family. The location was great; close to the beach, close to town, close to our friends, quiet neighborhood. Everyone enjoyed the roof top deck with it's sunshine and great view. There was plenty of parking and the bikes were invaluable. I highly recommend it and hope to have a chance to stay there again. Five stars. No criticisms.

Gorgeous, Immaculately clean home!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had the pleasure of staying in this amazing home while in town for a family wedding. The house is decorated just beautifully and it had everything and we needed and more! It is organized and labeled so you can find and put everything away easily. The beds are soooo very comfortable and the linens and pillows are luxurious! It is a short walk to a beautiful beach. There are many conversational open places for people to congregate, read, play, talk, or work! Our family stayed in the two rooms that had the twin beds room for our kids, with the queen bed room next to it. It was its own wing which worked great for our family. If our children were up early, we could shut the door to our wing and not worry about bothering others. Our family has stayed in many vacation homes over the years but this one is definitely the cleanest! Every square inch of this property was well maintained and I cannot tell you how clean it was. Lastly, I left my daugbter’s beloved Minnie Mouse shirt and the owner was SOOOO amazing about responding quickly to my initial inquiry about it and then doing everything in his power to find it. He did find it and shipped it to me!!! He was so very compassionate and sweet about a shirt most owners wouldn’t spend their time on! We hope to come back and visit Saint Simons Island and will definitely want to stay in this house again. You won’t be disappointed.

A perfect Place for a large group

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house for a 3 day weekend to celebrate our daughters wedding and could not have been in a more perfect home. We had 12 people and everyone had plenty of privacy and space of their own. Every detail of the house was very nice, the decor is beautiful, the kitchen is unbelievably stocked and the amenities abound. A very short walk to the beach.

The owner Paul contacted us upon our arrival to see if we needed anything and he answered any questions we may have had. I can't say enough how great this house is and we would certainly go back again.

The property is breathtaking! The design, decor, and attention to detail is unparalleled!

  • 5 of 5

Our family and friends spent 5 incredible days at Floataway Cottage. Everyone raved about how beautiful the home is and how well appointed all the rooms are. Every amenity you could want or desire was right there, at your fingertips, and clearly labeled! That helped everyone find what they needed, and when cleaning up, put everything away. The heated pool was incredible, and the kids loved splashing around in it during the abnormally cold stay we had in SSI. Plenty of fun was had with ping pong tournaments and watching the sun and moon rise and fall on the rooftop deck. The in house Sonos was wonderful to have as well, for our gang of music lovers. We could not imagine a more perfect home, and we cannot wait to come back for a visit. Loved our stay at Floataway!!!!

Great get-away!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third time renting this unit. It is spotless, well-maintained, and convenient to the beach and island attractions. The top deck is a delight with great views of the ocean and marsh. Highly recommend. We will be back!

Wonderful Experience!

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriends and I just stayed at this beach home last weekend. Wow! What a house. We have been going on trips together for 9 years and all agreed this was our favorite house. Perfectly decorated and maintained. The owner was extremely accessible and accommodating. We had a really memorable trip and could not have been happier with our experience.
