About

Welcome to Meridian Cottage

Real Escapes Properties is proud to offer the Meridian Cottage of the Coast Cottages Community on St. Simons Island. This beautifully remodeled and re-decorated three bedroom, three bathroom Beach Cottage is located just a short stroll to the best beaches in the area. Coastal Cottages are in a very desirable location. You'll find charming southern architecture with wide, breezy streets. These elegantly appointed beach homes are surrounded by lush natural landscaping and brick-paved lanes.

Two King-sized bedrooms with private en-suites are located on the first floor along with a stackable washer/dryer located in the main hallway closet. When you arrive on the 2nd floor, you will be amazed at the open floor plan and high ceilings. The second floor features the den, dining area and kitchen as well as a third King sized bedroom with private en-suite. The dining area has room at the table for four and the kitchen bar has additional seating for 4. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need for a great home cooked fresh seafood dinner!

Afternoons can be spent on one of the two front porches - both have swings and extra chairs and overlook a portion of the marsh area. There is parking for two cars in front of the cottage. Outside the back door, there is a outdoor shower - conveniently located off the pathway (that leads to the community pool).

A short stroll from any of the cottages leads to a spectacular oceanside pavilion and pool facility unrivaled along the St. Simons Island shoreline. Enjoy biking, swimming, kayaking, shopping, or dining at one of St. Simons’ fabulous restaurants - all very close by!

Overall, we had a great stay at Meridian Cottage. Great location near the Village and the beach, and the pool access was a huge plus. They don't provide some supplies that I feel should come standard with vacation rentals, such as small shampoo and conditioners and trash bags. There are also check out instructions to start a load of towels, but they do not supply laundry detergent. One of the dishwasher racks was broken so we had to rig it to run a load (they did provide dishwasher detergent). Lastly, cleanliness could have been better.

Overall, the size, location, and amenities at this rental trumped the areas for improvement. I would recommend this property to a friend and would stay here again.

The Meridian Cottage is a well-appointed cottage within walking distance to the beach and a bike ride near restaurants / shops. The home was comfortable and in a quiet neighborhood. The home was cleaned, but could use some attention to detail; the top rack of dishwasher inoperable, the microwave wouldn't heat, only on beverage cycle for 10 seconds and there were lights out in bathroom sconces and ceiling. The downstairs A/C felt warm, so we took out the air filter which was in definite need of a change. (IMO, Items such as this should be taken care of between stays). Five of us stayed and having 3 beds / baths were great. Plenty of room to sit, actually the abundant of furniture in downstairs BR & LR is not needed. The community pool is within walking distance and so nice, and clean...and the beach beyond that. The two porches are a plus, if you can handle mosquitoes! :) Overall, I would stay here again. It's a great place for family / friends and a great community too! Some things just need a little attention to at the moment, that's all! Thanks so much! We had a great time!

Great experience!

We have been coming to St. Simons Island for 30 years and have stayed in several of the Coast Cottages. We love this location! I have stayed on the "main strip" of the Coast Cottages and this year we opted for the Meridian Cottage--why didn't we stay here sooner? Perfect! We loved the location! It is a quiet little road which is what we love. We walked to the beach every day and it wasn't a haul even with 2 babies. I have already booked our vacation for next year at the Meridian Cottage. There is more than enough room for everyone to have their space. Our children were able to have the downstairs for themselves and their babies while we enjoyed the upstairs bedroom which is massive and oh so comfortable. The front porch was delightful in the morning for coffee and in the evening when winding down. The only downside was the microwave. Apparently they know it isn't working properly because when we contacted the office about it they said we needed to add 1 minute to the cook time because it doesn't work until after 1 minute. There isn't a sign saying that or any indication that it isn't working properly so maybe the microwave needs to be replaced or at least let the renters know that there is a known issue. It would cut down on phone calls I am sure because I was told immediately that they knew it was an issue. Regardless, we are staying next year and cannot wait! Thank you for the beautiful vacation!! We still travel to SSI even though we have moved to Virginia so we can enjoy the Golden Isles of Georgia.

Meridian Cottage fit our needs perfectly for my family. It is nicely decorated and the kitchen is well appointed. There is a Keurig as well as a coffee maker (we didn't use the Keurig), but would've if we'd known ahead of our visit. It is nicely updated, too.

We thoroughly enjoyed the Meridian Cottage. It had a perfect layout and was clean upon arrival. The walk to the beach was easy and safe. During our time there, our AC, Dishwasher, and Coffee pot all had problems. I think it was all coincidental that it happened all in one week. That being said, the AC was fixed immediately and the Dishwasher was fixed a day later. The coffee pot leaked water, but. brewed coffee fine, so we ended up just putting the water in and immediately turning it on instead of preparing it the night before. None of these things made our stay bad. The staff at Real Escapes were polite and very helpful. We would absolutely book the Meridian cottage again and stay in SSI again!

Another wonderful experience with Real Escapes Properties. You all do it right! We've stayed at the Meridian several times before, but not since it was remodeled. What a beautiful renovation! Still has a beach cottage feel, but is now more luxurious. The bedrooms are large and very comfortable. Everyone said they slept very well. The living area was also a relaxing place to hang out and watch football.

We have rented Meridian several times now. Of all the houses we have stayed at on East Beach at St. Simons this is our favorite. This house accommodates a family or couples who want to share a house. It's especially nice since owner refurnished a couple of years ago. We really enjoy the front porches that look over to East Beach and the ocean.

We had an amazing week-long family beach vacation at Meridian Cottage! The house was beautiful inside and out. The house fit our family of 4 and my parents perfectly. The property, Coast Cottages, was also perfect! The pool and easy beach access was wonderful, especially since we have 2 small children. We were so happy with the location of the house to reataurants, shops, and grocery stores. This was such a wonderful rental property...we are already planning our trip back next summer!

I love the fact that the rental already has bikes available for the guests. One of my favorite things to do is bike around the island so it made it very convinient!!

I loved the modern look of the cottage. this is a great place for 3 couples because the place has all king beds and all private restrooms.

Mary was great to work with. I would stay at this location again in the future.

We loved our stay. We have a three children (5, 3, and 8 months) and grandparents Cottage was very nice. One of the only cottages that had porch swings and a shady tree. A little over two blocks to the beach (a wagon for beach stuff comes in handy). We left our frame tent on the beach every night, with no issues. Only quarky issue with the cottage is the that kitchen and living room are second floor.

It was another terrific stay at a Coastal cottage. Really like the inside renovation at Meridian as we had stayed there before. Definitely would rent Meridian again. Staff at Real Escapes has always been great to work with on renting a vacation place at St. Simons. Have worked with Jan since we first started renting at Coastal Cottages, it's always an enjoyable experience.

In love with St Simons Island! Arrived in the middle of the night and as promised the keys to the cottage were waiting. What an incredible surprise to walk in to the Meridian Cottage, much more beautiful than words or pictures can describe. Everyone was extremely nice and friendly from the property management company to the shop owners on the island to the guests staying in Coastal Cottages. Loved it and will be back next year :-)

The first week required some assistance to get our Wi-Fi and cable service as we wanted it. It also required some assistance getting what we needed to keep the place clean over the period of time we were staying. After that we settled in to enjoy our stay here for the month.

This cottage was very clean. We loved that all bedrooms had a king size bed. Most that we checked on had twin beds in the 3rd bedroom which doesn't work with all adults. Only negative was not enough towels. wash clothes for 6 people. If you like to watch tv at night there are none in the 2 bedrooms downstairs.

We had a wonderful long weekend at Meridian Cottage. The place was clean and well appointed (charming was the word used) and we loved the fact that the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed.
The people at Real Escapes were very friendly and helpful. Thank you, Jane.
