About Thomas & Amy Brittain
My wife and I are retired and enjoy living on St. Simons Island.We both grew up in Virginia and still have family there.
Thomas & Amy Brittain purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Thomas & Amy Brittain chose Saint Simons Island
We originally built the cottage as a guest house for our family and friends to come visit us and enjoy the island. We have used HomeAway / VRBO when we travel and just love it, so we decided to try it out for the cottage. It has been a wonderful experience and easy to manage. We enjoy meeting so many different people that come and stay in the cottage and we enjoy sharing our passion, which is property design and decorating.
What makes this Cottage unique
Our cottage is very unique in the fact that was designed and decorated after the architecture and style of the Cloister spa and hotel. It has a open floor plan, tall cathedral ceiling with dark wooden beams. The floor is dark stained and the walls are beach white with a awesome yellow barn door. Every detail from small and large were meticulously thought out. There is a adorable duck pond at the end of the street that has duck, fish, turtles and fish that love to be feed and that will come right up to you. The driveway to the cottage is about 100 yards from the main road on the island, Fredericka Rd., so the bike paths are within 100 yards of the cottage I also recently put up an adjustable basketball goal, so you can shoot baskets if you like. The cottage is super relaxing. All windows have screens, so if you like a nice beach breeze coming in you can have it.

REAL Island living
I lived on SSI for 13 years. I moved, but my daughter and her family still live there. This trip was a Christmas visit.
Check-in and check-out was easy as can be. Having the door lock with a code was great, no messing around with worrying about losing a key. The cottage is located on a quiet street just off the main drag. The street dead-ends into a small, beautiful freshwater lake. A terrific grocery store, good restaurants, a movie theater, and clothes shopping are all available in easy walking distance. Beaches are minutes away by car.
The cottage itself is just wonderful! It's decorated beautifully with that perfect blend of casual, quirky elegance that is so typical of life on St. Simons. It had everything we needed to cook if we wanted to. The bed was comfortable and several different types of pillows were available so my husband and I both got the type of pillow we wanted. The living room couch & chairs were comfortable and the TV worked without being complicated. We didn't, but if we had wanted to we could have had 6 people over to eat without feeling crowded. The outside deck area was beautiful and peaceful. The landscaping was also lovely, and again typical of the SSI lifestyle.
All in all, our stay was perfect. If you want a taste of what it's really like to live on St. Simons, and you want to do it for a very reasonable price, this is the place for you!
Cutest cottage ever!!!!!
We really enjoyed our stay. The cottage was exactly as it looked in the pictures. It was bright and colorful, very neat and clean and it had everything we needed. We would definitely book it again when we get back to SSI!
Everything was perfect
We enjoyed our stay.
Quiet, Convenient, Smooth & Great Value
Everything was well thought out and exceeded our expectations. The location was very private and surrounded by huge trees and other vegetation. Yet, by St. Simon's standards, most easy to find and navigate to and from. You could tell that the owners had thought of everything and this was not their first rodeo. We especially liked the free use of beach umbrella and chairs. Just perfect for the two of us. The umbrella was easy to manage and even had a built in screw for simple and secure set up. There was a book of local eateries and other information that someone put a whole lot of effort into assembling. The shower was great just as advertised and generous bottles of conditioner and shampoo were included. The reservation/check in procedure was professional and smooth. The door lock had a key pad which always simplifies things. When returning after dark there were several lights on the stairway already lit up - a nice touch (and safety conscious). All in all, we thought it was the best place of our 15+ trips to SSI. If you like quiet, convenience, value and charm you should definitely check this place out.
This is our 3rd year at the cottage!! The property is beautiful, clean and a great location!!! The Brittain’s are always available and responsive to any questions because we never have a problem. I highly recommend staying at this property or any of their others because I’m sure they are also immaculate!! We can’t wait to come back next year!!
The bike path is only 50 feet from the driveway and you can bike all over the island. The public beach is only a little over a mile away. The pier and pier shopping is just two mile away. Harris Teeter shopping center is right across the street for convenient shopping. Brittain Vacation Rentals.
