Exterior Features to Enjoy
Multi-level island design is on full display at Emmeline Cottage. This towering testament to St. Simons Island architecture speaks to elegant lines and spacious floorplans that are paired with large windows throughout to frame a fantastic view. Just steps away from the front door of this delightful home away from home, guests will enjoy access to an oceanfront community pool. Here, afternoons can be spent swimming or making the most of the many lounge chairs that surround the area. A covered pavilion is also readily accessible as well as private beach access.
Stepping inside Emmeline Cottage, guests will enjoy a space that’s bright, open, and endlessly inviting and stylish. The primary living space in Emmeline Cottage is found on the second level of the home and offers up a collection of tasteful furnishings which include a plush beige sofa and complementary gray armchair, both topped with decorative gray and white striped throw pillows. These cozy features are settled around a natural wood coffee table and in front of an elegant fireplace and large flat-screen television mounted on the wall above. The interior aesthetic leans heavily on a white and gray color palette in this part of the home and is paired with floor to ceiling windows and doors that allow for easy access to exterior balconies as well as generous light flow to flood the floorplan.
The kitchen in Emmeline Cottage is a great place to serve up breakfast, lunch, or dinner on a whim. Here, guests can access a collection of stainless-steel appliances, sleek white cabinetry, and an extended breakfast bar and island situated between classy columns that incorporate a touch of undeniable luxury. When it’s time to dine, a spacious dining room table is settled within a dining nook filled with windows and light complete with a rustic-chic chandelier overhead. Of course, when the weather is right, there’s nothing like taking a meal outside to one of the many extended balconies and decks available for enjoying. With the two ovens and two dishwashers, a nice evening dinner overlooking the beach is easy and clean up is fast!

Emmeline Cottage is everything one could hope for in a beach cottage get away! It is spacious and clean with breathtaking views! Fully stocked and comfortable. Easily accessible to pool and beach which is perfect when taking young children. Great communication with host company. We will certainly consider this property again for future vacations.

House had everything one would need, from bicycles to beach chairs to beach towels! Location is perfect, next to public beach but still plenty of space. Easy bike ride to village or restaurants. Would have been nice if the three main bedrooms had dressers in them. No where to put clothes. Also might want to check for mold. Upstairs beachfront bedroom smelled like mold when the ac was running, so I opened the return in that room and it was covered in mold around the edges. I should have called the rental agency. The bottom floor queen bedroom we also think has mold as son is allergic and he ended up going home early because of breathing issues. Was fine when not in that bedroom. May want to check the entire house.
Manager Response: Marie, thank you so much for your review of the Emmeline Cottage and for being our guest last week! We are so happy that your group enjoyed the cottage and the island. We are definitely looking into the mold issue you described and remedy this immediately. Thank you again for your feedback and we hope to have you back again as our guest soon! - Adam @ Lilmar
We stayed at Emmeline cottage previously and were so disappointed. Everyone needs to know the new owners have removed the gross carpet upstairs, updated things and the house is so much cleaner! We had a wonderful stay and the house has everything you could need. Multiple coffee pots, awesome stocked kitchen, lots of beach towels and bikes. We had a blast!! Perfect spot for a big family gathering, we will be back!
Manager Response: Thank you for your 5 star review and for being our guest again at Emmeline Cottage! We are so glad you loved all the new updates to this beachfront home and that you had such a great stay this time around! It really is the perfect beach house for a family getaway. We look forward to seeing you all when you visit next!
-Lauren with Lilmar Properties
I was hoping that this rental property would provide a beautiful setting for my family to gather for Thanksgiving (it did!). I hoped the pool would be warm when heated during the holiday week so we could still use it in late November (it was!). I hoped my family who flew in from across the country, even from San Francisco, would find it a worthwhile destination (they did). I hoped the charm of the rooms, decor, and design would provide a setting for wonderful memories (yes!). I hoped the view of the beach would make even time in the house a special experience (the view was even better than I expected, and was visible from so many different bedrooms and decks and living areas of the house). I hoped access to the beach would be easy - it really was, even for grandparents and toddlers and teens. Totally glad we booked this rental and would do so again!
Manager Response: Thank you so much for your 5 star review and being our guest at Emmeline Cottage! We are so glad this was the perfect home for your Thanksgiving vacation with family and that it met all your expectations! We hope to see you all again soon!
What a fabulous beach mansion. The interior is even prettier and more spacious than the pictures indicate.The kitchen is very well stocked and equipped. I was very pleased with the cleanliness of a home that large. But best of all, you have the view of the Atlantic Ocean from so many rooms. Also the elevator is great for people who cart lots of luggage.
Manager Response: Thank you for your 5 star review, Katherine! We are so glad you loved Emmeline Cottage and it was more than you were expecting! Those ocean views from there are pretty incredible. We hope to see you again soon!
Great house / location. Very close to beach / pool. Will stay again. Ext & Int could use a paint job Cookware could be updated.
Manager Response: Thank you for your review, Jim! We are so glad you enjoyed this house. The prime location is pretty amazing. Thank you for your feedback as well on the house. It is always appreciated and helps us to improve for future guests. We hope to see you all again soon!
Very nice house, very close to the beach.
Manager Response: Thank you for your 5 star review, Robert! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Emmeline Cottage! We hope to see you again soon! Lauren@Lilmar Properties
Very nice house, great location. The house is great for large groups, convenient to beach. The house needs a little maintenance, paint inside and out is needed. The cookware could be updated. Overall great house that we will consider again.
Manager Response: Thank you for your review, James! So glad you enjoyed Emmeline Cottage - it really is a spectacular home! We appreciate your suggestions as well on the maintenance. The interior of the home just went through a full renovation this summer, but it is always helpful to have guests feedback. We hope to see you all again soon!
Home had a great ocean view! Rain caused paths to ocean to be flooded with up to 6 inches of water and unreal mosquitoes that requires deep Woods Off.
Manager Response: Thank you so much for your review, Larry! We are so sorry the weather did not cooperate with you on your trip but we are glad you enjoyed your stay anyway and hope you stay with us again soon!
The home was as described. Beautifully furnished and well equipped.
Manager Response: Thank you so much for your 5-star review, Daniel! We really appreciate it and are so glad you and your family enjoyed your stay!
We had a fantastic stay at the Emmeline Cottage and look forward to our next visit. A couple of items to note is that there is no pantry storage so if you plan on eating in you will need to be creative on finding places for storage. Realizing that oceanfront homes are very difficult to maintain on the exteriors, I would point out there that was some deferred maintenance needed on the exterior trellis, patios, etc... mostly peeling paint but some rotted wood and pressure washing that would help spiff up the extior.
Manager Response: The Emmeline Cottage really is a fantastic property. Stunning views and location you just can not beat it. Thank you for the recommendations and have taken note of them. We look forward to the next time.
We had a great stay, plenty of room and fine furnishings! The exterior grill needs some new grates. We will definitely book it again next year.
Manager Response: Thank you for your feedback about the grilling grates. We will work on a replacement grate set for the grill. Thank you, Adam
Emmeline Cottage is a dream. WOW!! The view is incredible and the size of the home is immense. So comfortable. We spent six nights here between Christmas and New Year's - a wonderful place to be and escape. The beach is great - walked every day for miles. Wonderful restaurants for take out. Truly the best home ever!! We will be back!!!
We had a wonderful time at Emmeline! Beautiful property and lovely accommodations. We’d stay again for sure. We had a few minor repairs that were required during our stay, and the property managers were so quick to fix and remedy our issues. Only recommendations for the future - additional refrigerator and additional storage for pantry items.
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our all-too-brief 3-night stay at Emmeline Cottage on St Simons Island. The cottage is the closest one to the beach and sits adjacent to a very nice two (2) pool set-up with transiting boardwalk leading out to the beach. The cottage itself is spacious, spanning three (3) floors plus an accessible outdoor rooftop patio. It was very clean and beautifully and tastefully decorated inside. In fact, it looked like something directly out of Southern Living! In addition, it offers multiple beach chairs (plus a transport cart to get them to/from the beach); an abundance of beach towels; and even bicycles - seven (7) of them! - so that you and your family can enjoy the bike-friendly paths throughout the Island area. There's even an elevator to assist with transporting your luggage up to the upper floors of the cottage. While the pictures online display the beautiful accommodations, they can't do justice to the niceness of this cottage. You just have to see it for yourself! We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and plan to return again next year - hopefully for a 5-day stay next time!
Spectacularly beautiful property, and closest one to the pool and to the beach! Clean, well-kept, and luxurious. Our family of nine had plenty of room, and we enjoyed every minute of our stay! Our only regret was that we couldn’t stay a few days longer . . . . this time. But we definitely plan to return for a longer stay in the future!
The house was all one could ask for. The ocean front location adjacent to the pool was ideal. The weather was beautiful-intermittent rain not a problem-actually refreshing. Celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary with our family, children and grandchildren was most precious to us. These accommodations provided the perfect setting for us all. Thanks to Adam and Beth for their service.
Beautiful home with outstanding views. This house will accommodate a large family or group. Everything was on point and had no problem with Adam & Beth! All went smoothly, no complaints, would recommend to friends.
We had a wonderful time and this is a beautiful home.
Great spot on the Beach. Everything as advertised
Good value, great location with quick and easy access to the beach and pool; large size unit with three bedroom is nice to spread out, wonderful large balcony with direct view of the beach
Want to know specifics? Ask anything about this specific property that you would like to know...
Example: "Is the balcony screened in?" or "Is there a toaster oven?"
Does the trundle room have a designated bathroom? Is there a sleeper sofa? Thank you, Kristi
Yes, the bedroom with the red trundle has a private bathroom. There is also an extra full bathroom on the same level by the laundry room. There is a sleeper sofa in the bedroom on the top level (blue striped couch) with a King bed.
Have bar stools added to that massive counter since the pictures were taken by chance?
Yes, bar stools have since been added.
