Rental Information

Cottage Amenities

All Cottages are comfortably furnished with a fully-equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, and fresh linens (including beach towels). Daily housekeeping services may be arranged prior to your arrival for an additional fee. Sea Island Cottage guests enjoy concierge assistance with pre-arrival itinerary planning, including airport transfers, grocery delivery, resort dining, babysitting services, activity and spa reservations.


Sea Island is bordered by five miles of private beach on the Atlantic Ocean to the east and separated from St. Simons Island by the Black Banks River and wide salt marshes to the west. Sidewalks run the length of much of Sea Island Drive (up to 36th Street), making walking and bicycling a pleasant way to reach The Cloister and other resort facilities. Bicycle and golf cart rentals are available through your concierge.
