Pet Friendly! Located on one of the more tree-canopied streets on the island, our home will provide you with the perfect vacation getaway you have been looking for. The live oaks that cover this area give you the feeling like you are in your own world. Once you park your car under the carport in the back, you may not need to use it again during your stay. Cummings Lane is a very cozy, quiet, and peaceful location. It is only one block long with more people walking than driving. The trees and landscaping provide a sense of privacy and seclusion from neighbors. It is truly our favorite street on the island.

We are in a convenient location at the south end of the island, just about a 10-minute (0.4 mile) walk to the beach and 15-minute (0.7 mile) walk to the Pier Village. When you visit the Village you can shop in a variety of interesting stores, eat in local restaurants, and listen to our amazing local bands. Since the beach is also within walking distance we have a beach cart, cooler, beach towels, and some beach toys to make your beach time more enjoyable. We are also centrally located to many more fun activities for the whole family to discover.

The cottage has all that you will need for a great vacation getaway. You will love the open floor plan of the living/dining area with the pass-through window to the kitchen. The bedrooms each have their own bathroom and can be considered to be their own suite. This makes the home ideal for one or two couples or for families with children. There is a dining area as part of the great room, another dining area in the screened porch, and a patio dining set on the back deck. The living room has two comfortable couches, a flat screen TV, games and books. The outdoor areas are wonderful for relaxing around the house. However, the front porch is truly our favorite spot with a comfortable double Adirondack chair, rocking chairs, a porch swing, and a great porch railing at the perfect height for putting your feet up while having your morning coffee or sipping a glass of wine.

We strive to provide a cottage that is comfortable, clean, and well-equipped. However, another goal is to provide an exceptionally well-maintained home and since this is our home for five months every year we are able to do this. Many other vacation homes are never really lived in by their owners, as ours is, and we think that makes a real difference. Because we actually live at the cottage for an extended period of time, we are able to offer a rental cottage that it is much more likely to provide you with that perfect trouble-free stay.

Other amenities include a large hot water outdoor shower, large back deck in a private (fully fenced) back yard, fully-equipped kitchen, cable TV, wireless internet access, and more. The kitchen is fully stocked with quality appliances, dishes, pots and pans, spices, and many other items you would need for those who enjoy eating in.

Art And Linda
Property Manager
We are retired teachers from rural upstate New York and spend our winters on St Simons Island. Our discovery of St. Simons Island was by chance and we immediately fell in love with the village, the beautiful beaches, and friendly people. We rented vacation homes for many years, both on school breaks and as retiree snowbirds, and this helped us learn what makes a good vacation rental. We purchased the cottage in 2012 and are very happy to share arli cottage by making it available to vacationers during the spring, summer, and fall. It is our goal to make your stay as perfect as possible. We know you will love it as much as we do.
