About the property

2Bd-2Ba Historic Coastal Cottage

Come on in and leave your worries behind because you will feel relaxed as soon as you enter. The house has over 40 windows for plenty of natural light and shades if your not ready for the sunshine yet. Upstairs, enjoy a glass of wine on the patio or go inside where you won't find any drywall, only tons of heart pine with a lil oak and driftwood here and there, and take a jacuzzi bath in the upstairs bathroom. There are 10ft ceilings and 2 fireplaces upstairs with a full kitchen, formal dining room ,formal living room, formal entry room and 2 sitting areas with great views. This house has tons of antiques along with a lot of my own personal touches. I have a Landline, Wireless and Satellite TV (just in case you still want to stay in touch with the rest of the world) also books, DVDS and boardgames if you have any free time upstairs. As you go down the original inside staircase you will find the master bedroom which has 2 fireplaces and the 2nd spacious bedroom and bathroom and a sitting/sun room. I have front loader Bosch washer and dryer just in case you feel like keeping up with dirty laundry while in town? And of course I am an animal lover!! So please feel free to bring your furry family members too!! Lets just try to make them mind their manners ;) There is a huge fenced in back yard with a gas BBQ grill, picnic table and extra chairs. Should there be a cool night or two, I also have a burn pit for the perfect s'mores. The property is settled on a charming corner lot with plenty of room for parking, just don't hit one of the pecan trees and take care when your around the magnolia tree. It came in a coffee-can from Birmingham AL, compliments of my 4th grade teacher that taught me at St.Marys Elementary School which is right up the road. The house is located in the historic district and is within walking distance to the waterfront area which is where the ferry is located for Cumberland along with shopping restaurants and bars. I generally have a few bikes and fishing rods laying around the house but I can't guarantee one of my neighbors or friends didn't barrow them so please feel free to bring your own. The house is fully equipped so just bring some clothes and a toothbrush and your ready to go:D

This was the first vacation I'd taken in four years and scheduled it to be a girls' trip with my teenage daughter and her best friend. Ashley was very responsive to my questions leading up to the trip. The house has keyless entry (with a keypad), so there's no check-in process. We got there late and were able to get settled easily.

First....the house. For reference, the bedrooms are on the first floor and the living area is on the second. The bedrooms, particularly the master bedroom is HUGE (literally the size of a studio apartment). It has a private door to first bathroom, which has a tiled shower with the fantastic feature of body jets. Both bedrooms have TV with cable and DVR. The washer and dryer are conveniently right outside the bedrooms. The backyard opens off from the laundry room and is completely surrounded by privacy fencing. We brought 3 dogs and they were in heaven with the enormous backyard. The internal stairs are a narrow spiral, so I would not recommend this house for anyone with mobility issues. Upstairs living area is very comfortable and includes the most well-equipped kitchen I've even seen in a rental home, as well as another bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub. There was something new to see at every turn in the house and it was evident that a great deal of thought and love went in to decorating it.

Second...the town. The house is literally a few blocks from the riverfront and historic downtown. St. Mary's has great shops, food and people. Ashley had a few bikes at the house which my girls loved using to go explore downtown. Fernandina Beach is 30-45 minutes away and was not crowded at all (on fourth of July week)! The Cumberland Island Ferry is within easy walking distance.

A friendly word of advice on visiting Cumberland Island...bring tennis shoes, or even better, hiking boots with good socks, bug repellent,sunscreen, and lots of water. Go through the SeaCamp campground to get to the beach, no matter which way the sign is pointed. Our misadventure based mostly on my own ignorance will be funny one day. It's not yet.

Lastly, Ashley. She was amazingly responsive and gave great advice on places to go. Everything was ready to go when we got there and all we had to do when we left was take out the trash. Can't wait to visit again! Thank you so much!

What a charming little house! And a cute quiet little town. Loved the relaxed pace of Georgia!!! And less than an hour to a beach in either direction. I would recommend you give this place a try.

I grew up in this small fishing hole town and always had a blast without anything but my ole beach cruiser.You can take a ride around town, go either way out of the driveway and your sure to end up at a boat ramp just in time for a lil fishing or shrimping. If that doesn't float your boat you can always jump on Langs Ferry and pop over to Cumberland Island for the day. Make all of your phone calls before you arrive on the island because you probably won't get the greatest service. It is truly like stepping back in time over there. You won't find any paved roads but you will find ruins of mansions, intact mansions, wild horses, turkey, hogs and deer (keep a special eye out for the white deer) to name a few. As your walking down the sanded paths be sure to pay attention to what is under your feet, could be sharks teeth? If your looking to get off off the oak tree shaded paths and have some fun in the sun, then take a path out to the beach where you will have 18 miles of one of the quietest beaches I have ever been to. Don't be shocked if you see wild stallions running up and down the beach just appreciate their beauty. The beach is great for shelling , as the seasons change so will the shells that wash up on the shore line. October and November and normally great months to get a few extra bucks, sand dollars is the island currency according to me. When you get back to the house on the mainland, give a hello to Charlie or Larry who live across the street;) Charlie will always know whats going on around town.. and tell him I said 'Hey Charlie, I miss you and see ya soon!!
