Spring Break 2022
This property was even better than posted. It had so much room and space to hang out. It had everything we needed and then some. It was decorated so stinking cute. The location was also GREAT...in the middle of everything. We rented a golf cart and used it the entire week. The house was very clean and we can't wait to stay here again.

Serene Stay
Comfortable and clean place to base ourselves for our island adventures. The winter weather was warm enough for a few days that the sun porch became our favorite cottage spot to relax. Close to shops, restaurants, and all outdoor activities that we had planned. We loved the vintage/vintage-inspired décor. Important maintenance issue addressed quickly by property management.

Great house, great neighborhood, great vacation
We've never stayed on this part of the island, but I'm glad we did. We could walk the dogs in the neighborhood and to the beach. The house is well-equipped, cleverly decorated and comfortable, and the screened porch is perfect.

Thank you for sharing your vacation experience with us, Sarah! We hope you'll return again!

Great Rental
This house was perfect for us, the screened in porch was great and I loved have a fence in yard with a swing for our daughter to play on. Great location, it is 5 minutes from the beach and anywhere else we wanted to go. This was our first trip to St. Simon's and we definitely want to go back and would like to stay at the same house.

So glad that Happy Tabby was perfect for your family, Amanda! We'll look forward to your return visit!

Wonderful, comfortable house close to beach
Loved the house and it was very comfortable for our week long vacation on St. Simons. The fenced-in yard was a selling point for us traveling with our two dogs, who loved it. Kitchen appliances are wonderful, family room was super comfy, and the screened in porch was wonderful.

Fell in love with the huge screened porch!
My husband and I just spent a week in this lovely home. It is spacious, in a quiet neighborhood, in a convenient location to restaurants, etc. We spent most of our time on the lovely screened porch. It is quite large, with multiple tables, places to sit and even a twin bed! Our chihuahua fell in love with it too! If you have family/friends traveling with you the other bedrooms/bath are quite nice as well. The decor is vintage swim-themed and amazing!

Felt very homey unlike many other rentals that look/feel like rentals. Decor was beachy & eclectic and the home was clean with basic necessities like soap, paper towels, etc. Back porch is a great feature and the location is very convenient. Perfect beach home away from home for our family of 4.

Lovely Home!
I had planned a girls trip with 2 of my oldest friends and had no idea I would be walking into such a beautiful home! Every detail was tended to-- from the beach and retro themed art on the walls to the sheets and towels and appointments on the door handles and kitchen drawers! We were whisked into a mermaid world of comfort and beauty-- seriously! Everything was spotlessly clean and fresh and every room had a special charm. We wanted to move in permanently! The 3 bedrooms were all decorated with detailed care and each wall hanging and pillow felt personally selected for aesthetics and function. We had a multitude of beach towels and blankets and the screened in porch was a huge separate room for hanging out. It felt like we lived there but had the most caring imaginative decorator create our perfect space! I don't think I could say enough to do it justice! As beautiful and comfortable as it was, there was a sense of calmness and purposefulness permeating the interior. If I could live there, I would in a second! The neighborhood was quiet and well-kept. I am in love with The Happy Tabby Cottage and felt like every need was well-thought out! This is a lovely home and it enveloped us in beauty and extreme comfort! Thank you so much for offering this rental! Wish we could be there now!
