About Marti golson

My name is Marti Smith Golson. I am a 36 + year resident of Bluffton. I grew up in Bluffton with my family and now I am raising my 2 sons with my husband in Bluffton. I privately own the cottage but also own a local real estate company, Martha Crapse Realty, that has been in our family for over 50 years. We specialize in rentals which lead me to converting the cottage to a short term rental. Myself or a family memeber are always close by for assistance during your stay. We take pride in our rental and our town. We hope you'll enjoy your stay at our recently remodeled/updated cottage that my father built in 1980's.

Why Marti golson chose Bluffton

This particular cottage offers old Bluffton comfort with the ability to either walk to local businesses or sites with the option to take a day trip to other area towns or cities.

What makes this cottage unique

Uniquely the cottage is just enough space and amenities to either stay a few days or months. Set back off the main drag... Enjoy the front porch to rock & relax or have guests over for dinner.

Marti's cottage was the perfect place. Great private porches. Homely and comfortable for my girls :)

  • 5 of 5

We arrived very early at 6 am on Sunday morning and were able to go right into the house, which was great for us as we left at night from KY. I had ask Marti in a couple of emails back and forth before our arrival and she was always quick to respond and very accommodating. The home was very clean and had a lot of good calm energy inside and out. Abby and I enjoyed drinking a cup of morning coffee on the porch as our daughter (18 mos) walked around us and the yard, knowing she's safe on the dead end road. It felt like home away from home being able to cook and relax without having to get up and go right away.

Yama had never been to the Ocean before so it was perfect being only 20 min away, as we spent time there all of our 4 days in Bluffton. To be able to come "home" after fun times in the sand and sun and give her a bath then let her run around and play like she's used to at home was Great! Momma and I could take turns making dinner and cleaning up while keeping and eye on the little Miss.

Having the park at the end of the road was a nice touch as we were able to take a walk around with Yama in the stroller for a while then let her play and swing at the playground.

For us it was a great opportunity to grow closer as a family, enjoying quality time alone relaxing and creating memories that are priceless. Moments that will carry us through the challenging times along life's journey. To see your child and love light up in the waves of the ocean, to be buried by my girls in the sand, building sand castles for the little one to knock down with such a smile and happiness of accomplishment, and knowing that that joy of the ocean and beach will imprint are her heart are just a few moments this father will carry for a lifetime.

I carry much gratitude to Marti for opening her home to us and allowing us the opportunity to experience moments that are Joy and Happiness beyond words. I'd recommend this place to anyone looking to relax and enjoy a beautiful place in Southeastern South Carolina.

Take Care and Safe Travels,

Morgan Bird

Absolutely perfect!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this perfect cottage for our wedding week last September! Being from Bluffton and no longer living there I couldn't have asked for a better little Bluffton cottage to start our honeymoon. It's walking or golf cart distance to everywhere we wanted to be and backed up to a little wooded creek so you also felt seclusion and privacy. You will spend the majority of your time on the awesome porch (at least we did). Bring your eno hammock if you have one, there are already hooks up! The owner, Marti, was very accommodating the house's decor is so, so cute with local art; making us feel right at home. We will definitely be back!!

Charming cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful time in this great little cottage right in the heart of historic downtown Bluffton. You can walk to all sorts of small shops and cute restaurants. Wonderful streets to walk with large moss draped oaks. The interior is very tastefully done and has everything you need for a pleasant visit. I highly recommend it!

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

Staying at your house Marti was so nice. Very comfy, cozy, greatly furnished and filled with all household necessities. Also, such a great location in Bluffton, close to our favorite places, and also such a pleasant front porch next to the trees and river. Thank you Marti and your father for a little customer service.

The cottage has the feel of privacy as is surrounded by trees and has all the amenities for a comfortable, great getaway with the Bluffton State of Mind decor. The location is perfect for accessing all the shops, art galleries, restaurants, bars, and sights to see without the need to drive. The owner is always accessible and responsive if any need arose. We would definitely stay here again when visiting Bluffton.
