Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, 6 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 beautiful Island Cottage Home sits on a large piece of property in a perfect location near the Village. Walnut flooring, granite, a wood burning fireplace on a huge screened in porch make this a make this an absolutely luxurious island getaway!
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 3 Bedroom, 3 bathroom home (sleeps 6) is located just a short walk from Mallery Park and the Village and Pier Area on St. Simons, which boasts wonderful pubs, restaurants, two parks, beach access and a perfect 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.
Screened in back porch overlooks a large back yard with a wooded back drop behind the fence. Complete with an outdoor shower, it is the perfect place for entertaining. 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 parties are not appropriate for this area.

Best vacation ever!
My family booked with Island Cottage Company for a little break from work over our spring break. It was exactly what we were hoping for. Michele met us when we arrived and spent time helping us choose where we would eat and what kinds of activities we might enjoy. The was wine and cheese waiting for us and the cottage was gorgeous! And I should mention that it was impeccably clean. We will definitely be back!
Girls week getaway!
The Heron is the perfect cottage for a vacation. Room for families and in our case, a weeks getaway for 3 friends. We each had our own bedroom and bathroom. Peaceful and quiet neighborhood. Beautiful decor inside and the screened in back porch with fireplace is a dream to set out back and enjoy your dinner or evening glass of wine. Michele is always the perfect hostess and only a phone call away. We have also stayed in her other cottage The Seagull. You can't go wrong with either!
Comfortably Cozy Clean Cottage
This is a fabulous cottage and we will definitely be returning! Michelle thought of everything to make the cottage feel like home! It is immaculate, with good linens, roomy , and has comfortable gathering areas. We loved the porches and hope to return during the winter to enjoy the fireplace. It is in a great location in a quiet neighborhood. We were lucky to meet Michelle and she was so sweet and very helpful with recommendations and information.
A little piece of heaven
I enjoyed my time so much I am definitely going back again. The home is immaculate. I am always looking for a place to take my family that feels like a home away from home. I expect it to be well maintained and not feel dated or worn out. I was pleasently surprised with the meticulous eye for detail of the owners of this home. We were greeted with cheese and wine and given names of restaurants to visit and things to do in the area. She made our vacation to the island unforgettable! The layout and amenities of the home were wonderful. The location was convenient to the pier, the park , and several local restaurants. The restaurants we visited were incredible. We rode our bikes to breakfast every morning. We took the car to nearby places for movie theaters and whatnots. The outdoor porch was a favorite hangout at night. In a word it was fabulous!
3 Palms is great!
We had a lovely stay at this property. It is new, beautiful and clean. The owner is sweet, accomodating and very understanding> Great location, an easy bike ride to the pier or beach. I'd love to come again during the winter because of the fireplace on the screened-in porch. Good value.
