The Piper Cottage near the Village/Park/Pier

The Piper Cottage near the Village/Park/Pier

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Oct 21, 2014
Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 4 Sleeps

Notice! There have been quite a few additions to the vacation rental market on St. Simons Island over the past year or more. This is primarily due to the economic crisis. Many homes may not be well furnished or may be in trouble financially, so make sure you do your homework!

This is a classic 1940's Island Cottage Home in a perfect location near the Village! This is not a second home with personal belongings in it, but rather a boutique cottage that we use exclusively for our guests at Island Cottage Company, a family owned business we started 7 years ago! We have lots of repeat guests and are happy to provide references.

This 2 Bedroom, 1.5 bathroom home (sleeps 6) is located just 4 blocks from Mallory Park and the Village/Pier Area on St. Simons, which boasts wonderful pubs, restaurants, two parks, beach access and a new public pool, along with tennis courts and a GREAT little library.

Guests rave about the high quality furnishings, linens and comfortable beds.

The neighborhood is quiet and friendly and has easy access to the

many bicycle and walking paths that St. Simons Island has to offer.

Closed in back porch leads to a deck overlooking a large fenced in

back yard. Complete with an outdoor shower and teak furniture with

umbrella, it is the perfect place for a BBQ with the family.

A large fenced-in back yard, full of our famous Live Oak trees and complete with

swingset, allows the kids and dogs a good place to run while you

grill fresh fish on the large gas grill, complete with gas.

All the neighbors are wonderful people and we take care to ensure that our

guests feel at home and respect the folks that live here permanently.

Loud noise or large parties are not appropriate for this area.

Piper Cottage

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we walked in the door of Piper Cottage it felt like home. Very comfortable, clean relaxing place to vacation. The cottage has everything you need and if you have a dog, it will love the fenced in back yard as ours did. The neighborhood is very quiet and within a short walk to the village. Michele has a great sense of style in decorating and also provides quality linens & towels in her rentals. Only complaint in staying here, is that you have to return home at some time!

Love The PIper!

My family and I enjoyed The Piper to the fullest! Our dog loved the huge backyard! The cottage is spacious yet cozy.....very clean yet comfortable. We were close enough to walk to the beach and to The Village. Our hosts were incredibly gracious and warm. I can't wait to go back!

Beautiful property and super nice owners!!!

My husband and I stayed for four nights in this cozy cottage and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The house is very well decorated with tasteful furnishings, and the beds/linens were comparable to at least a 4 star hotel. We would highly recommend staying at this property!!!

Location

Activity and Interests

Golf - Several beautiful public Golf Courses are available with fees

starting as low as ~$28 with cart.

The Village - Cottage is within easy walking distance to 2 parks

(Mallory Park and Neptune Park), public pool, tennis, public library

and the beach. Summer music festivals feature jazz and other local

music groups. Bring a picnic!

The Pool - It might be the only public pool located right on the water on this coast! It is located right next to the lighhouse and is absolutely beautiful (the pride of St. Simons). Swim lessons are offered in the summertime and

lots of locals gather here. Parents can visit the library, the shops or just take a walk while the kids swim. Big kids can ride down by themselves to join their friends!

Dining - From locally prepared seafood at many fine local

establishments, to some of our great southern BBQ with sweet tea,

dining on St. Simons Island is always a great experience. A whole

range of dining options begins in the village, just down the street.

A quiet walk to and from dinner is one of our family's favorite

things about living in this area!

Fishing - Off-shore Deep Sea Fishing charters available most

days weather permitting; Inland Waterway fishing excellent year-

round; surf fishing right on the beach or at the Pier. Try your hand

at crabbing off the pier with the local kids.

Try the Casino Cruise for an evening of offshore dinner and gambling.

Hiking, Exploring - St. Simons Island is literally surrounded by

state and national parks. Take a ferry to Cumberland Island National

Seashore for a historical walking tour or see Okefenokee Swamp by

boat or canoe. Little Talbot Island, Big Talbot Island, Fort Clinch,

and Guana River State Park systems - along with the Sapelo Island

Estuary - offer an unprecedented view of Georgia and North Florida's

natural beauty.

Sea Kayaking - Paddle through many backwater saltmarsh tributaries.

Guided tours available through local adventure companies.

Horseback Riding - Available through the Sea Island stables located

on the North end of St. Simons Island. Go for a nice ride right on

the beach!

Biking - Ride along the beach on a beach cruiser, or use the bike

paths to pick up your groceries for dinner. For a real challenge,

ride your bikes all the way to the north end of the island to tour

Christ Church and Fort Frederica, the site of the original settlement

on St. Simons Island.

Shopping - Historic and quaint, St. Simons Island Village is within

walking distance and is full of cute shops. Spa services and the

shops at the famous Cloister Resort are just a few miles away for the

more upscale tastes. Both the metropolitan areas of Jacksonville and

Historic Savannah are a one hour drive away.

Tennis - Just down the street are public tennis courts that are free

to the public. These courts are in great shape and you'll see our

family there on a sunny afternoon year round!

Pilot? St. Simons Island McKenna airport is less than a mile from

the cottage.

Sports Fan? Jacksonville is home to the NFL's largest stadium -

Alltel Stadium - brand new and located 60 minutes away. Cath a

Jaguars game. This is also home to the annual Georgia-Florida rivalry. During

football season you can join the many who come to St. Simons Island

for all the festivities.

Like the Theatre? Choose from our local theatre group, the Island

Players, located in the Village next to the library or take a drive

to Jacksonville or Savannah where several fine theatres present

extraordinary shows for your entertainment. The Alhambra Dinner

Theatre presents dinner and fine Broadway shows. The Florida Theatre

hosts the Symphony, Pops and many fine traveling Jazz, Dance and

other entertainers each season. Each year the FCCJ Artist Series

featuring Broadway shows has a number of fine shows at the Time-Union

Center for the Performing Arts.

Museums - The Cummer Museum, Brest Planetarium, Zoological Gardens,

Museum of Modern Art, Aviation Museum, Maritime Museum Society,

Museum of Southern History and Kingsley Plantation are just some of

the major attractions that make wonderful regional day trips.

Go to the Zoo! Just 60 minutes south is the beautiful Jacksonville

Zoo, positioned along the St. John's river. The zoo is quite nice

and can take a full day to see everything properly.

Visit the Millionaire's Village on Jekyll Island, just south of St.

Simons, for a view of how the rich and famous vacationed during the

Industrial Revolution. Family 'cottages' with names like Morgan and

Carnegie await you during this short 1/2 day trip.
