  • Worked fine for us but needs some TLC


    Stayed for the weekend and the house worked just fine for our small family and my wife's parents. Great location just a short bike ride from downtown St. Simons Island. Well stocked and equipped but needs some TLC. Lots of bees nesting in/around the back of the house. Both keyed doors take some work to operate. Fun loft for the kids but the stairs are steep - wouldn't recommend for any kids under 5 or 6. Not sure how people get in and out of that MBR shower over the age of about 60. FYI - there is a little lizard friend living in the MBR - we tried to catch him, but failed. Thanks!

  • We enjoyed our time at the Banana House


    Overall, our stay was really enjoyable. This cottage is really roomy. I would suggest that the appliances be updated. They are outdated and hard to use. Also, we could not get the front door open and were disappointed that the outdated jacuzzi was indoors. But, all things considered, we would return to this cottage. It is very convenient to everything. I think it was well worth what we paid to stay at the Banana House.

  • Nice place, mix of modern conveniences with a lived in feel to it


    We used the house for a crew of guys to stay in while working in the area. It served its purpose. Rustic house that had the ?lived in? feel to it, guys were right at home. Pictures made the house seem bigger than it actual was. Cozy little neighborhood. We would definitely stay here again.

  • Banana House Relaxing Getaway


    Banana House is a cozy, comfortable retreat. My wife and I don't do much while we're on vacation and Banana House was the perfect place to do nothing. The bed was very comfortable. The kitchen was well designed with everything in easy reach. The wifi was great. I had one minor issue and called the property owner/manager (not sure which), left a message and was quickly called back. I would suggest the owner get an electrician in to look at the lights in the guest bathroom (which I used almost exclusively) as they flickered and would go dark, requiring flipping the switch on the left fixture on and off until they stayed lit. This was a very minor problem that did nothing to diminish our enjoyment of the property.
