Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Saint Simons Island - Kismet Cottage

Peaceful and beautiful villa set within a walled garden, minutes to the sea.

Kismet is a luxurious two bedroom villa, a few blocks from the beach and the village. Ideally suited for two couples, there are two separate master bedroom suites, one in the main house and one in the guest house. The main house suite has a bay window with stained glass, queen-sized bed, separate dressing area and a marble-tiled bath with a steam shower. The guest house has high ceilings, a king- sized bed, plantation shutters, sitting area, walk-in closet and marble-tiled bath with a tub. Each bedroom has its own flat screen television. The main house is anchored by a great room with 10 foot ceilings, walls of windows and a tabby fireplace; the great room connects to a cozy sitting room with a marble fireplace and large flat screen tv, opening to the kitchen. A true chef's kitchen, it has top of the line Thermador appliances, a large island seating six, bar sink and breakfast area, and loads of windows. French doors lead out to the deck, al fresco dining area and professionally landscaped garden. The whole property is enclosed and landscaped for seclusion. For those coming back from the beach or who enjoy showering under the sky, the garden area includes an enclosed rainhead shower with hot water.

Inside and out, the house is decorated with a fun mix of contemporary furniture, vintage finds, antiques and mementos from the owners' travels and nautical adventures. There are hardwood floors throughout. A single-sized daybed in the great room provides extra sleeping for the added guest or an afternoon nap. Linens, beach towels, bicycles and beach chairs are included. WIFI, an integrated security system, and irrigation system keep everything running.

Kismet is located in a quiet, residential neighborhood less than a 10 minute walk to Myrtle Beach, a quiet beach popular with locals and accessible at high tide. Two more beaches, each with plenty of parking, are a mile away. The house is located midway between the village and the King and Prince, making the location ideal for walking and biking to all the shops and restaurants without the hassle of traffic and parking.

Kismet is our retreat from the call of our busy lives. We come to relax, to admire the sea, the marshes and the old oak trees. We hope that we can share with you a little bit of our happy wonder at this beautiful place.

Please email or call with any questions and to inquire about availability.

Private, quiet getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent the first hour there walking around the property and starting sentences with "Hey, honey, look at THIS!" My wife loved the kitchen and the herb garden. If I had to give constructive criticism, it would be... Add a DVD player in the living room (there is a RedBox nearby) and add a motion sensitive light in the carport so you can see getting in and out of the car in the dark. Until then, if you are visiting, grab the small flashlight plugged into the wall in the hallway when going to/from your car. And bring a DVD player if you want to snuggle and watch a movie. We spent the Labor Day holiday there. On the one hand, I wish we could have shared our experience with friends and family. But on the other hand, we loved escaping the world to our private little retreat!

Absolutely adorable. Did not want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

This property is amazing! There are so many details as far as decor and furnishings. The kitchen was topnotch, so much so that even though I hate to cook, I did so many evenings because it was more enjoyable than fighting the crowds at the local restaurants. The living areas are inviting and comfortable and the outdoors is so relaxing. The heat unfortunately drove us inside, but I am sure the spring and fall are magnificent here. There were fresh herbs in a planter that I used for meals and even a lime tree right on the deck. Hopefully the owners do not mind that I used a few of those while we were there as well. Since it was just me and my husband, we did not use the guest house, but it was incredibly enticing, especially since that is where the king bed was. If I could make one improvement to this place that would be it. Put a king bed in the main house suite. We had everything we needed to make this a wonderful stay. The thing we enjoyed most was the use of the bikes. We rode them everyday to the village and just to explore the island. We were not big fans of the beaches since we are accustomed to the Gulf coast beaches of Florida, but the pool at Neptune Park was perfect for the extra hot time we were there. We would love to come back during a cooler time of year. We would highly recommend this for Saint Simon Island vacationers!!

Design Magazine Worthy

  • 5 of 5

This was not only the most beautiful vacation property we have ever stayed in, but maybe the most beautiful house of any kind we have stayed in. Every detail, vase, bowl, furniture was selected for this house perfectly.

The kitchen was immaculate, appliances were a dream, so for someone who enjoys cooking, it was wonderful. The "private retreat" bedroom, a separate and away from the main house via a breeze way, gave my wife and I privacy from our teenagers that can be lacking on vacation. I cannot say enough nice things about this property.

Beautiful retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home with great architectural details, gourmet kitchen (that my wife fell in love with) and a professionally decorated yard. Everything is high-end quality and it's decorated to the finest detail. It's in a quiet neighborhood that is close to both the village and the beach. The high fence, gated drive, and security system created a private retreat. This is a perfect place for a romantic getaway - or for 2 couples traveling together with the separated 2nd bedroom suite. We'd love to come back!

Perfect getaway for wife and I without 2 kids. The layout is great and the outdoor space is wonderful. The outdoor shower was used more than the indoor showers and the bike and trailer are all you need to get your gear to the beach.

Our only problem was that our trip was too short. Next year...

Little Piece of Heaven!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! This property is AMAZING!! I was in desperate need of a get-away and this property just seemed like the one. When I arrived I could not believe how peacefully tranquil the setting was. It was nice to be walking distance to the village area with shopping, restaurants and activities, but still be far enough away to not be bothered by the town noise. The owner of this property has done an amazing job with the upgrades (just to name a few) the walls of windows, cozy fireplace, gourmet kitchen, outdoor living area with patio & garden, outdoor shower, etc. I have been coming to St. Simons with my family for over 20 years and this is my favorite place by far. I can't wait to come back soon!!
