Exterior Features

Summer Wind is a charming island cottage finished in a soft blue hue and trimmed in white—the combination of which stands out wonderfully against lush green surroundings. Guests are greeted by a front porch outfitted with rocking chairs—perfect for settling in and savoring the sights with ease during a stay. Around the back, those that are seeking fresh-air moments will find that the screened porch complete with ample seating options is particularly inviting. Summer wind also features a new gas grill on the patio for alfresco fun as well as an outdoor shower to follow up fun at the beach. A spacious sun deck on the second level of the home hosts a collection of Adirondack loungers and offers up a new perspective on the surrounding terrain.

Interior Amenities

The interior of Summer Wind features a fantastic open concept design and a fresh and bright color palette that focuses on bright whites, natural wood accents, and blues. The living room in this property hosts an inviting plush, white sofa paired with a matching loveseat, both of which are settled around a white coffee table and in front of a large flat-screen television. The living room includes access to a sleek fireplace for a touch of coziness while wall décor in blues and browns speaks to nautical inspiration.

Those who are looking forward to balancing time dining out with time serving up savory home-style meals will love the fully equipped kitchen in Summer Wind. Here, the traveling chef in your crew can enjoy access to sleek white cabinetry stocked with cookware, stainless steel appliances as well as ceiling-mounted cabinets that hang over the extended breakfast bar with additional seating options. When it’s time to dine, take your meal outdoors to the patio for a fresh air approach to eating, or settle around the 8-person dining room table.

While all bedroom options in Summer Wind are appealing, there’s something intriguing about the luxury that awaits in the master bedroom. Here, guests can enjoy a King size, four-post iron canopy bed paired with a large flat-screen television, en suite master bath, and access to a private porch.

We really enjoyed our stay at Summer Wind. The house was very comfortable, nicely decorated and super clean. We appreciated the well stocked kitchen and the high quality beach chairs. The communications w the rental office was a breeze. The only negative was somewhat spotty WiFi when we had multiple people working remote.

Great Place
We stayed here for a weekend getaway, and really enjoyed it! The location is great, centrally located between the village and East Beach. I wouldn’t say you could walk to the beach, but you could definitely bike. We enjoyed the beach towels and chairs that were provided. The house was very clean and comfortable! Communication with the property manager was wonderful, and accessing the house was very simple and convenient. Our only suggestion would be to provide 2-3 Kuerig pods to get guests started. We got in really late on Friday night, and it would’ve been nice to have just one or two the next morning before we went grocery shopping. Overall, it was wonderful, and we will definitely stay again!

Manager Response: Thank you for your review as well as being our guest at Summer Wind!  We will definitely consider your thoughts of a starter set of Keurig pods for guests.  Great idea!  We hope to have you back again soon!  - Adam

We enjoyed our 3 night stay at Summer Winds! We loved the side street it was located on and the church property it overlooked our back. It is not extremely private (houses close by near Master and screen porch) but that is to be expected on St. Simons. Other than that, it felt private enough and was well cared for. Island Karts delivered and picked up a cart to the location during our stay. We easily cruised to the pier and other local restaurants during our stay. Would highly recommend!

Wonderful Vacation Home
We spent a wonderful week on St. Simons Island at the Summer Wind House. We have vacationed many times on St. Simons and this is by far one of our favorite rental homes. It is very clean, pretty, quiet, centrally located and they provide great amenities. The beds were super comfortable, air conditioning worked great, well equipped kitchen, nice beach chairs, comfortable bedding and nice soaps and shampoos. We could relax and enjoy our vacation. We will definitely rent this home again. Thank you for being so thoughtful when appointing this home.

The cottage is located close to everything! The kitchen was well stocked and had everything you needed. My only complaints were the pillows needed replacement and there were no beach chairs for those who are traveling far. We would definitely rent again. Note there are similar cottages around this property that would make for a great multiple rental for family or friends to have their own space.

Review for Whalecome Home Cottage
The Whalecome Home cottage met all of our needs (group of 5). We were very satisfied with the cleanliness, comfort and decor of the home. The kitchen was well supplied with plates, cups and utensils. I would recommend an automatic ice maker for the refrigerator. The home was conveniently located near the beach and the downtown village for restaurants and shopping. We would definitely consider staying at the cottage if we vacation again at St. Simons Island. We did notice that back porch door lock latch would not hook (looked like it had been recently painted).

Whalecome Home Cottage
The cottage was exactly like it appeared on the VRBO website. It was very clean, beach like and in a safe area. The cottage contained a good supply of kitchen and dining plates, glasses and utensils and we either cooked or picked up food for dinner each evening. The living area was neat and comfortable. The cottage was approximately a 3 minute drive to the downtown village and 4-5 minute drive to the beach which made it convenient. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely consider staying there again if we vacation in the area in the future.

St Simons Whalecome!
Home was very clean, well supplied, and as described. Conveniently located to beach and town/shopping-used rental bikes to get around almost the entire time. We were able to cook dinner with equipment supplied for eight several times. House is comfortable and well decorated. Communication with hosts was easy and they answered immediately. Arrived earlier than expected and they let us check in early. Would absolutely stay again and in fact the consensus of the group was to come back next year!

Best House on Island
We could not have chosen a better home for our Saint Simon’s vacation. It was bright, beautiful, comfortable, and the kitchen had every tool we needed. As others have pointed out, the pillows were not the best and you might want to bring your own. Our friends rented the house across the driveway and we were back and forth between the two, so if you have more people than the house can fit, consider looking into the other rentals in the neighborhood. The location is so convenient, and we suggest renting a golf cart to get around to the beaches and restaurants. It’s easier to find parking for a golf cart than a car. East Beach is a mile or two, but we preferred 11th Street Beach, which is only .5 miles away and was far less busy. In all, we are already thinking of booking this home for next summer!

Extreme Comfort
The cottage was so very comfortable for our family. The pictures do not do it justice in regards to capturing its charm. Everything was spotless and it was like walking into a brand new home. We loved how convenient it was to the beach and the village. Only a couple of suggestions: a speaker bar needs to be added in the living room, it was hard to hear the tv. Typically, it wouldn’t matter but it rained a couple of days and we spent time watching tv. The second suggestion would be to put rugs in the bedrooms by the beds. It is almost impossible to get sand off your feet without a rug. Lastly, I would think with the money spent on this lovely home by its owners, that they would have splurged a little on the appliance particularly an ice maker for the refrigerator.
