Shell Cottage is located mid-island, less than one half mile to some of the best shops and restaurants that SSI has to offer and the Beach and Village are just minutes away.

Shell Cottage offers the privacy of the entire second story which encompasses a Bedroom with a King Sized bed ( or two twins ), a Private Bath and a Sitting Room/Office for watching Cable TV, reading or working if you have business to attend to.
I have beach towels, chairs and a beach cart for your use.

The space

Ideal space for 1 or 2 adults
or a couple. On a case by case basis I will consider a third person (air mattress in sitting room) at an additional fee.

Guest access

Shell Cottage is my home. The main level is where I spend my time when I am not working but you are welcome to use the outdoor spaces, the laundry and the kitchen - where you will find premium coffee and tea. Enjoy breakfast at your leisure in the dining room. I will offer something special each morning but you might need to warm it up in the microwave - depending on when you wake up . My kitties are indoor/outdoor so Shell Cottage is their home as well.

Interaction with guests

As a real estate agent and real estate office manager I work 6 days a week (9-5 M-F and 11-3 Sat). Sundays I am usually at home, playing in my yard or catching up on household chores.

Other things to note

I am an avid gardener and am constantly improving my landscaping and starting a veggie garden - I will not disturb your visit with my projects.
I frequently host small dinner parties.

I stayed at Sharon's place for a wedding in Sea Island this past weekend - everything was terrific as advertised. She offered me check-in as soon as I got into town on a red-eye, which was greatly appreciated! I had access to the entire upper floor - it was clean, well-appointed, comfortable, and had everything I needed during my stay. The wi-fi and air conditioning were essential, as it was a warm weekend in the Golden Isles. Next time I'll make sure to take advantage of her offer of breakfast!

Wonderful hospitality. Sharon is a wonderful host. Very charming and well decorated home. Quaint quarter with a bedroom, private bathroom and own study room on the 2nd floor of the house. Highly recommended.

Extremely convenient & comfortable space for an island visit. Also, quite a value for lodging on St. Simons. The space itself was very comfortable and private and the host was very accommodating. You occupy the space upstairs, but are definitely made to feel very comfortable in the use of the other common areas; the kitchen, dining, den & outside spaces. I highly recommend a stay at Shell Cottage, you won't be disappointed and you get to meet a fantastic host to boot!

Shell Cottage was a wonderfully quaint place to stay. Sharon was very hospitable and made us feel welcome into her home. The setup upstairs fit our needs perfectly. She graciously opened her home to my mother, 16 month old daughter and myself. She went out of her way to ensure my mom knew she could eat dinner and have a glass of wine with her and her friends. This was a first Airbnb experience, if I ever have another with Airbnb they have a lot to live up to! The perfect size breakfast, wine, cookies, chocolates next to the bed...just in case we had a sweet tooth to fulfill, friendly cats, an island full of beautiful places, and a quaint and restful place to end the day. I cannot speak enough praises of Sharon and her home. Thank you and may anyone reading have such an enjoyable weekend as we had.
