Heron Cottage

With a stunning new pool, this beautifully decorated 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom boutique cottage (sleeps 8) is located just a short walk or bike ride from the Village and Pier Area on St. Simons Island, which boasts wonderful pubs, restaurants, two parks, tennis courts and a fantastic little library with a view to the sea.  This cottage is in our favorite spot on the island. Guests rave about the high quality furnishings, linens and comfortable beds!

Perfect for couples or families, enjoy quiet time on the couch by the outdoor fireplace on the screened back porch or get some sun by the pool. A large back yard, complete with an outdoor shower and a gas grill allows the kids to swim and play while the adults relax! A full kitchen with wine storage and an ice maker lets you cook for yourselves or try having one of our great local chefs come in and cook for you or do a teaching dinner!

This is a sweet, locals neighborhood that is quiet and friendly and has easy access to the many bicycle and walking paths that St Simons Island has to offer. All our neighbors are wonderful people and we take great care to ensure that our guests feel right at home.

"Hey Michele and Scott! Thanks for helping make this vacation extra special for us. This wonderful cottage feels like a home away from home (we LOVE the colors and decor!!). Your southern hospitality is second to none! We had a great time exploring and beaching on St. Simons, golfing on Jekyll and sight seeing in Savannah and sea kayaking down the Satilla. Stay in touch! We're looking forward to welcoming you to Toronto in the near future. All our best, Jodi and Darlene"

"From the moment we walked in the door of Heron Cottage it felt like home. Very comfortable, clean relaxing place to vacation. The cottage has everything you need. 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!"

"We have stayed at this cottage several times and the Heron Cottage always gives us the feeling of home and comfort. I refer to it as "my cottage" Each time we come, Michele has added a new little feature to change things up and add some flair. She is a wonderful decorator! You will not be disappointed in renting The Piper, other than you will have to leave at some point. This cottage and St. Simons Island is my favorite place to be!!"

"St. Simons Island is a wonderful place to visit, full of history, quaint shops and excellent restaurants, not to mention the long beaches. The Heron Cottage was more than we expected, furnished beautifully and full of everything needed for a relaxing vacation. We found the cleanliness to be exceptional and the friendliness of the owners made our stay special, and we appreciated the professional way the booking etc. was handled. After spending an enjoyable stay last year we are returning again in just a couple of weeks and looking forward to another peaceful visit to both the Heron Cottage and the Island."
