Nice clean place
House was clean...renters were nice.my family had so much fun an town was right down the road.
Clean, comfortable and was supplied with everything we needed
It was the boys weekend to fish, fish and fish with Captain Tim's charted fishing boat. We spent are days fishing the intercoastal water ways of Saint Simon and are nights in a beautiful, comfortable and convenient home that came with all the things we forgot in Atlanta. The property owner was so accommodating, we're already planning are next trip....

Good stay for our short one night stay while traveling with two small kids. Really 2 bedrooms.
House is in good condition and has televisions throughout all rooms. No WiFi. Nice large porch. However the surrounding area is not what I expected. Front faces a small 2 lane road with people speeding up and down it. The one side neighbors a grave yard. Other side a run down trailer with scattered beer cans (although it was quiet for our night). Rear backs up to some wooded area. Across the street is a gated community with 3 story homes that sit on the water way. Had dinner at a nice seafood place within 5 min drive away.
Overall the house was in good condition and had all we needed. The surrounding area made me a little nervous considering I had my family with me in a somewhat sketchy unknown area. The 3 star rating is directly related to the way I felt while in the house. Otherwise the place was great.
The owner has been incredible.
The owner has been really incredible. I appreciate his flexibility. The house offers two very comfortable bedrooms, the third is really an intermediate room that can be used as a bedroom but there are also sleep sofas in the main area. For the price, it is a lot of house. It was very conveniently located to where I needed to be. B and Js is very near by and is a treat for dinner if you have the chance, best shrimp I've ever had... Coffee maker was available and plenty of filters stocked!
Saint Simons Trip
I stayed in this cottage as it is sort of close to Saint Simons Island. Upon arriving and making sure we were good to go, I noticed there are only a few towels and washcloths. Also had 0 trash bags and almost no toilet paper. Was told by the property manager that people take advantage so they don't keep it stocked with hardly anything. That is not a good way to keep people coming back to your rental. Friendly lady and all but things like that should be there upon guests arrival. The back outside window pain is broken. Didn't feel very safe in this rental at all. One of the bathroom sinks hardy drains, the bathtub was nasty... this place needs some serious TLC because it has a lot of potential.
I had to call the owner for the address, call the property manager about where to find a key, the property manager again to find out if it is standard for us to provide our own toilet paper and trash bags, the owner about the window, property manager about the window. Holy crap. Then the owner called and asked when we were leaving and if it was a holiday weekend, and it was a few days before 4th of July. This is the most I've ever had to communicate with owners and property managers for a rental, let alone a one night rental. Usually there is a welcome book, list of nearby businesses, sign in book, or something along those lines. Not sure how this place has such good reviews. I've rented through this website many times so I've come to understand what to expect when using it.
Also it is about 45 minutes from the small downtown area of Saint Simons Island so keep that in mind. I wish I had better things to say but I just was not impressed at all.
We are located in historical Darien GA the second oldest city in GA. We are filled with history like Ft. King George a pre revolutionary war Fort. Sapelo Island, Harris Neck wildlife management area. Shrimp boats lined up and down the docks with fresh catch daily.
