5 day weekend
This was a last minute trip. We tried to contact owner to check in the following day, but no response. Had to stay at King and Prince and book two days out. Trip Advisor not set up for next day check ins apparently.

Manager Response: Thanks for your review and for being our guest at Drift Away Cottage! We apologize for the delay initially in getting set up for next day arrival with Trip Advisor, but glad you all had an excellent time at the cottage. We hope to have you all as a guest again on your next stay in St. Simons Island!

Perfection
We will rent here again. This house was super clean and beautiful inside & out. We loved grilling and sitting under the lighted outside area. We spent a good amount of time outside sitting, reading and in fellowship. It is walking distance from everything - food, shops, groceries. The pictures on VRBO are great, but it is better when you actually see it. Perfection! One of our best vacations.

Manager Response: Thank you for your 5 star review, Trina! We are so glad you loved Drift Away Cottage and that you all were able to enjoy that amazing outdoor space there. We hope to see you all again soon!

Great Weekend Escape
This was a great trip for the family. The house was super clean and well kept. It’s located in a quiet neighborhood and it’s close enough to many of the areas in St. Simons that you would want to go see. The property manager was easy to communicate with and the use of the Happy Stays AP made the check in and out process simple. We would visit this place again if available.

Manager Response: Thank you for your 5 star review, Jim! We are so glad you all had such a wonderful family trip here and hope to see you all again soon! Lauren@Lilmar Properties

Vacation
It is a very nice little house. Enjoyed the back yard area. It is the first time in renting a home that we were expected to buy our own supplies.

Manager Response:  Thank you for your review, Lavonia.  We are so glad you enjoyed your time here at Drift Away Cottage.  We apologize for any supplies that were not provided during your stay and assure you that is not our standard.  We always have a box of supplies for kitchen and laundry and toiletries for the bathroom as well upon guests arrival.   Thank you for letting us know though so we can make sure it doesn't happen to future guests here.  We do hope to see you again on your next visit to St. Simons.

Perfect Getaway
This was the perfect house for our girls getaway. We loved the spaciousness and various places we could gather and relax. We would easily stay there again.
