“Our Island Cottage Vacation”

Reviewed 22 Dec 2014

Our stay at Art and Linda's Island Cottage was fabulous. The cottage was completely equipped, very comfortable, clean, and within walking distance to the beach and village. Art and Linda are great hosts and very willing to help in anyway they can.

Response from the owner To all our guests from 2014, thanks so much for a great year. We’re so appreciative of how much you help us out and in return we simply want to provide a great vacation home for you, our guests. From the reviews and individual comments we’ve heard back from many of you it seems that we are doing just that. All we can say is that it makes us feel great. We truly care and understand the importance of your vacation to you. We had a great winter/early spring at the cottage this year as we continued to enjoy our time on the island while enhancing the cottage with improvements for everyone to enjoy. We also took care of our usual maintenance to provide you with the best possible, hassle-free vacation we can. The only surprise we want for you is to realize how much you love it here! Corresponding with many of you over the last few years has been fun for us and has helped to make our experience at managing our own vacation home great. Thanks, and we hope to hear from many of you for another visit. Art & Linda

“Home Away from Home”

Reviewed 15 Oct 2014

This home was wonderful. Well maintained with a beautiful setting inside and out. Fenced in yard for your pets. All the basics and more were provided along with a BBQ. A great place to relax and enjoy SSI. I will recommend this cottage rental to everyone!! I give it 10 stars.

“I so enjoyed my stay. Art & Linda are top notch owners.”

Reviewed 8 Jun 2014

This cottage was so much nicer than I even expected! Clean, comfortable, best location. The owners went out of their way to ensure we had a great experience. Absolutely loved their outdoor shower, screen porch, and the huge new deck. They even promptly mailed me some clothes I had left in a dresser drawer! Art and Linda are tops in my book and I will be returning!

“Sublime and Superb On Every Level!”

Reviewed 7 Oct 2013

My husband and I had three nights reserved for his past week, along with our two West Highland Terriers, Trevor and Katie. Art and Linda were great from the get-go! We received a telephone contact before anything, to get acquainted. It went smoothly from there. We knew what to expect, and were made to feel welcome for every aspect of our first visit to St. Simons Island. We were so sad by the second night, knowing the next day would be our last. We checked the calendar and realized the night after was not rented. My husband called art and were were thrilled to be able to rent it as well, spending four nights. There is a collection of books, booklets, pamphlets and magazines full of everything you will need, including maps, to discover the surrounding Islands near St. Simons. This little home really is a "home away from home!" Each time I thought of something that we had forgotten, we checked, and found out that sure enough, Art and Linda had provided it. We could not have asked for better service. Plenty of fresh sheets, light and heavier blankets, big, thirsty towels, kitchen utensils/gadgets, soap for the washer/dryer as well as laundry baskets! They even supply charcoal and lighter for the barbecue! It is relaxing, cozy, quiet, clean, efficient place to vacation. From a cozy bed to sleep in to coffee on the front porch in the morning to barbecue on the screened in porch for supper, this house is wonderful. We slept like babies, and so did the dogs. Everything is within walking distance or a short drive. We visited Jekyll Island with the dogs, and had a nice picnic. Thank you so much, Art and Linda! This little beach house and your hospitality made our vacation more than just memorable. They made it unforgettable.

“A wonderful, homey retreat!”

Reviewed 27 Sep 2013

Art and Linda's cottage and the owner's made us feel right at home the minute we opened the door! It is comfortable and well stocked, clean and in a very peaceful neighborhood. The only thing we needed to provide was a few groceries for meals and snacks to get us through the week. If you are bringing your pet, there was a nice doggy bed in the house and their street is perfect for dog walks. Only minutes from the beach, walking there or to the village is a pleasant stroll of 10-15 minutes, with little traffic and lots of homes and parks to walk by/through. If you are looking for a relaxing, homey rental cottage, we think you'll get your money's worth staying there. We'll be back again!

“comfortable vacation week in an adorable beach home.”

Reviewed 15 Jul 2013

We had a fun week in St Simons and enjoyed our stay in your darling home. Thank you for all your thoughtful the delicious bottle of wine that greeted us after a long day of travel. We enjoyed the screened porch for eating breakfast and playing games at night. We found the location to be convenient to the Village, beaches and restaurants.

“Great vacation cottage!!!”

Reviewed 14 May 2013

We spent 8 nights, and the cottage had everything we needed. Very convenient location. We brought our bicycles, which worked out great as the area is very bicycle friendly (for casual cycling). We had our 11 month old grandson, and it was very convenient to have the crib and highchair. Saved us from having to bring one along, which would take up a lot of space in the car. Art and Linda were very good to work with, and answered questions quickly. You can tell they really want all their guests to have everything just right for their stay.

“We loved it and our 2 dogs did too!”

Reviewed 27 Apr 2013

What a wonderful place to spend a week and unwind and see the dogs unwind also. Art and Linda we're wonderful to work with and our thanks to them for providing a very comfortable place with all the things a person could possibly want or need. Our weather was not great so we got to spend a lot of time in the cottage, i.e., we never had the opportunity to walk to the village or sit, at night, on the front porch. However, no problems and no complaints! We will definitely come back to the cottage. It left a very good taste in our mouths.

“This is a place that feels like home and allows you to relax or”

Reviewed 23 Feb 2013

We felt so much at home staying here! The owners were friendly and very helpful when making plans to vacation in a place we had not been before. The rental definitely provides much privacy compared to other places we saw because of it's location and fences that separate the homes all around. For those who love to walk everywhere and leave the car at home, this is definitely a place to stay. We walked often to town where there are many nice shops, and places to eat and be entertained. For those who like some adventure, we enjoyed biking around St. Simons as well as Jekyll Island to the south. We totally enjoyed our kayaking tour through the marshes out to the ocean. When we felt like the beach, it too was an easy walk mostly through enjoyable side streets. The rental itself is well cared for, spacious and comfortable. The separate bathrooms for each room made it very easy for all of us who stayed. I thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere of both the screened in and open porch. Definitely places to hang out, relax, and enjoy the live oaks that surround you. We are so happy to have found this place and look forward to coming again.
