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.
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 village. We are also centrally located to many great restaurants and fun activities for the whole family to discover.
The cottage, built in 1991, has all that you will need for a great vacation getaway. You’ll love the open floor plan of the living/dining area with the pass-through window to the kitchen.
Since we live in the house for four months every winter, our home is sure to have all the comforts you would need. The kitchen is fully stocked with quality appliances, dishes, etc. The bedrooms have beautiful quilts, bedding, and furnishings. There is a dining area that serves four+ and another dining area in the screened porch. The living room has two comfortable couches, a flat screen TV, and many family games and books. There is also free WiFi and AT&T U-verse U300 with 360 channels including STARZ, ENCORE, SHOWTIME, the Movie Channel, and FLIX.
The master bedroom has its own bathroom, but if you check out the floor plan (last item in the group of photos) you can see that the second bedroom can be considered to have its own private bathroom as well. That bathroom, just off the dining area, is within the alcove entrance to the second bedroom. The outer door of the alcove can be closed off at night creating another private bedroom/bathroom master suite. This makes the home ideal for one or two couples or for families with children. We have a highchair and a fold-away portable crib available. There is also a washable dog bed and feeding dish for our 4-legged friends.
The outdoor areas (including screened porch, open deck and front porch) are wonderful for relaxing around the house. However, the front porch is truly our favorite spot with comfortable cushioned chairs, 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.
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 fenced landscape provide a sense of privacy and seclusion from neighbors. It is truly our favorite street on the island.
An advantage of renting a vacation home from owners who spend four months there each year is that we know this house very well. We have four months every year to check it, find potential problems, perform detailed maintenance, and make improvements. We hope to identify and fix problems before they appear and aspire to remedy any issues before they cause any inconvenience to our guests.
Although we are new owners and have not managed a vacation property before (and therefore have no reviews yet), we have been renters of many houses here on St. Simons Island and also in Cape Hatteras. We look forward to making our home an inviting and well-equipped rental home for your vacation and will be very open to suggestions from our guests to make it even better. During your stay, please feel free to contact us any time you feel the need.......Art & Linda
