About the property

New Luxury Cottage Great Location Duck Pond On Street

Super unique, luxurious one bedroom, one bath cottage. Always immaculately clean. Great location on quiet residential dead end street with duck and fish pond at end of street about 100 yards away. Enjoy strolling down to the duck pond to feed the ducks, fish or many turtles. To see a video tour of the cottage please check out our Facebook page, search using Brittain Vacation Rentals. The property has lots of large majestic Georgia oak trees and palm trees on the property and street. Plenty of parking. The location of this cottage is ideal being 2 1/2 miles from the beach and pier / light house and 1 mile from Sea Island. Also, very close to Harris Teeter, Island Cinema movie theater, great restaurant and shopping. Makes it perfect to ride bikes anywhere (bike path is less than 50 yards from cottage and goes all around the island). Cottage is approx. 850 sq feet including a full kitchen with microwave, stove, full refrig, dishwasher and keureg one cup coffee maker. Comes with free wireless internet that is super fast at 150 megabytes per second. Download or stream movies quickly with no problems. Washer and dryer available so you can do laundry on site. Cathedral ceiling with wood beams make this cottage exceptionally coastal elegant through out. Hardwood floors throughout exude luxury. Large main living area with flat screen TV with HD box so pictures is phenomenal. Has glass top breakfast table that is open to the glass top dining table and custom built in corner bench seating makes for a very relaxed environment. The master bed room is behind the yellow sliding barn door and has room for two and also has a flat screen TV and a DVD player. The bedroom is tastefully decorated in beach style. Off the master bedroom is a spacious spa bathroom. The design of the walk-in shower was taken from the Sea Island Club Spa. It has a special shower head that produces exceptional water volume and is like showering in a spa. Its like nothing you have ever experienced. The floor and shower are natural travertine castle stone and the shower has multiple patterns. Included with rental is a queen blow up bed that is very tall so you rest high off the floor. If the blow up bed is used the cottage can sleep four. The couch can also handle one person sleeping. The Kitchen is fully stocked with plates, cups, silver ware and items needed for cooking. A sampling of coffee pods are provided for your morning coffee enjoyment. Coffee can be enjoyed inside or outside on the spacious deck. You'll feel like you are in the tree tops with the good high views. Across the street is Harris Teeter, a large grocery store, where you can pick up fresh seafood and grill them up on the gas grill that is available to you. This cottage is located on our main family property where we live in a house that is in front of the cottage. We will gladly provide you with restaurant recommendations, directions and island activities that only locals know about. We are confident that you will be pleased with your stay in our brand new island cottage and we think it sometimes is the small details that make the biggest difference. Like a 5 port USB phone/ pad/ laptop charging tower provided so you can charge all your "things" without struggling to plug cords in behind end table or bedside tables. We think we have thought of everything to impress you. Our goal is for you to want to stay with us every time you visit Saint Simon's Island. While our listings do say pets considered we cannot accommodate dogs over 15 lbs due to the desire to keep our properties the highest quality available. As a solution to this there are several doggie hotels/daycares nearby on St. Simons less than a mile from all our rental properties. If our cottage is booked for your dates, never fear, we have four other luxury rental properties (property # 3996622, #4061158, 4014613 ). Our goal is to provide a unique experience with the highest level of luxury at the lowest price. We hope you will decide to stay with us. You will be happy you did.

About Thomas & Amy Brittain

My wife and I are retired and enjoy living on St. Simons Island.We both grew up in Virginia and still have family there.

Thomas & Amy Brittain purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Thomas & Amy Brittain chose Saint Simons Island

We originally built the cottage as a guest house for our family and friends to come visit us and enjoy the island. We have used HomeAway / VRBO when we travel and just love it, so we decided to try it out for the cottage. It has been a wonderful experience and easy to manage. We enjoy meeting so many different people that come and stay in the cottage and we enjoy sharing our passion, which is property design and decorating.

What makes this cottage unique

Our cottage is very unique in the fact that was designed and decorated after the architecture and style of the Cloister spa and hotel. It has a open floor plan, tall cathedral ceiling with dark wooden beams. The floor is dark stained and the walls are beach white with a awesome yellow barn door. Every detail from small and large were meticulously thought out. There is a adorable duck pond at the end of the street that has duck, fish, turtles and fish that love to be feed and that will come right up to you. The driveway to the cottage is about 100 yards from the main road on the island, Fredericka Rd., so the bike paths are within 100 yards of the cottage I also recently put up an adjustable basketball goal, so you can shoot baskets if you like. The cottage is super relaxing. All windows have screens, so if you like a nice beach breeze coming in you can have it.

Perfect little hideaway!

  • 5 of 5

When I walked through the door I had an instant smile on my face. This place is decorated so nicely. From the floors to the high ceilings to all the maritime decor. Great TV with lots of channels. The bed felt great and that shower was to die for. I don't usually stand in a shower just to stand there but I didn't want to get out of this one. The whole place was very clean. So Comfy. Thanks for giving us a great place to stay during our time in St. Simons. Loved the bunnies out in the yard. Don't change a thing. It is perfect!!

First Trip to St. Simons Island

  • 5 of 5

Our winter trip is normally to the Texas coast, but this year we opted for the Georgia coast. This VRBO was a great find and provided us a very neat, comfortable "home." Nicely furnished, cool decorations, comfortable bed, great shower. The only thing what could have been better was not to have a winter storm knock out power all over the island, causing us to miss a couple of our scheduled nights. Tom and Amy did all they could help in the situation. Hope to go back some day.

I feel in love immediately!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is so relaxing. I really can not describe how much I enjoyed staying here. From the amazing shower and bathroom to the relaxing beach decor. I just fell in love. We walked to the duck pond and fed the ducks, geese, and fish. We walked on the bike path over to the marsh everyday. It was just so peaceful, honestly the best location. I will be definitely be back again.
