  • Great stay


    Beautiful cottage in a peaceful neighborhood. It was clean and stocked with everything you could need. The screened in porch was the spot we enjoyed most but watching sunset from the boat dock is a close second. It was great to be able to have our dog along for the stay. Great location to check out Jekyll & St Simon islands from.

  • The Best Georgia Vacay Spot


    We were so impressed with the quality and cleanliness of this property. The views and sunsets every night were postcard worthy. I rarely go back to a VRBO, but this one, we will be returning. Dog friendly which we love and appreciate so much!

  • A perfect location for a quiet romantic getaway


    This place is amazing !!! both inside and outside and also the support of the management team and the owner.

    The inside is tastefully designed with every detail comfort can ask for. One cannot but admire and spend all their time in the porch area of this house which overlooks the marshes and nature. All you can hear is the sound of birds and squirrels. We spent all our time in the porch and wish it had a hammock to fall asleep !!! The kitchen is fully stocked and has all the appliances - even the new Keurig coffee maker was a blessing. The smart tv can accommodate even your personal fire stick and that is what we used to watch our favorite tv shows (though hardly we watched any since we were in the porch all the time. The beds are comfortable and bathrooms fully stocked with linens.

    The outside is so calm and serene. Walking to the docks is a thrill and one can spend their morning coffee there. The massive trees and Spanish moss on them looks like you have been taken back in time.

    The small town of Darien is lovely. Folks are very friendly. Plenty of seafood placed around. If you want something we just love eating, then hop on your vehicle and head to St Simon and eat at Barbara Jean's place. The best of Southern food. Don't forget to try their crab cakes as you will want more when you come home ;).

    Overall this place is amazing. We are definitely coming back for a longer stay.
