In Spring 2013, Annie Laurie completed a magnificent restoration and redecoration. Everything was re-done inside and out ... appliances, furniture, flooring, linens, drapery, paint, fixtures, siding, doors, windows ... the works! The interior walls are completely covered with ship-lap wood paneling, and the trim and mouldings are a work of art. It was a year-long labor of love by a very talented owner team. Coastal Living Magazine should do a feature on Annie Laurie!
Located just 105 yards from Coast Cottages' fabulous oceanside pools, pavilion and beach boarwalk, this home is s superstar! You'll love the ocean views from the balconies, cleverly placed windows, and especially the rooftop deck with its built-in gallery seating. Once inside, you'll be amazed the creativity, craftmanship, and splendor.
FIRST FLOOR: Bedroom 1 is like a second master with hand-made king bed and ensuite bath. Bedroom 2 has a hand-made queen bed with ensuite bath. Kids will love bedroom 3 with its rope-style bunk bed, built-in video screens and 1/2 bath.
SECOND FLOOR: You'll love the open living, dining and kitchen arrangement where everyone can be together. Enjoy a sing-along around the antique upright piano. There's plenty of comfortable seating on the wrap-around sectional with glimpses of the ocean through several windows. Check out our old-style wooden cafeteria table which seats 10 for meals. The seats tuck out of the way when not in use. The kitchen features granite counters and flourishes of vintage (yet modern) appliances. The breakfast bar even has built-in soda shop stools. Step out on the breezy, furnished balcony for a some sweet salt air and relaxing conversation among swaying palms.
You can watch the 62' flat screen TV from almost anywhere on the second floor which has a convenient full bath. You'll also find a secluded bonus room equipped with a handmade set of bunks, each with its own porthole window (one with an ocean view)! Every bunk bed in Annie Laurie has a wall-mounted video screen ready for your favorite device.
THIRD FLOOR: Take a peek out the stairway window at the 1936 Historic Coast Guard Station about 100 yards away... it was the architectural inspiration for Annie Laurie Cottage. Your jaw will drop as you enter a spacious master suite which occupies the entire third floor. The king headboard rises almost to the ceiling where three luxurious paddle fans slowly move the air. Fall asleep to the 62' flat screen TV, and wake up to an ocean sunrise without ever leaving the bed.
There are two sitting areas, one nestled in a gorgeous bay window with built-in seating and fabulous ocean view. Enter the master bath through frosted glass doors and marvel at the unbelievable tile work. Peak out the window while you shower and watch the pelicans fly along the shoreline!
For a real treat, step outside and climb the circular stairs to the rooftop deck. We have built-in gallery seating so your group can enjoy an ocean sunrise over coffee, or a beautiful evening sunset over the cottages.
You and your family will enjoy full privileges at Coast Cottages' beach front pools and pavilion, located on the widest stretch of sand on the island. This is a place where you can walk the beach at high tide, low tide, any tide! (Note: vacation rentals south of Arnold Road cannot make this claim.)

Our Christmas Present
Our family decided to forego a bunch of presents in exchange for staying at Annie Laurie on St Simon's; it was completely worth it!! It's an incredible place with plenty of room for our family of 6. We love the nautical charm of the place but it had such a great style all its own! It was so close to the pools and beach which we took advantage of several times daily. It was quiet and and peaceful and I got to watch the sunrise from the rooftop deck. When we come back, this is exactly where our kids want to stay again. I highly recommend it!- Melissa H , Posted: 05/12/2018
Our family vacation in Annie Laurie was perfect. The home is beautiful and has everything you need for your vacation. We had two children and five adults in the house and we were very comfortable. My elderly parents and aunt were able to climb the stairs to the second floor but it was nice having access to the elevator if it was needed. The house is perfect for families and a very short walk to the community pool. The ocean front is a hike but there are tide pools closer inland if you are not up to the walk. All of the beds were very comfortable and the air conditioner worked great. It was also extremely nice having a door code and not having to worry about keys. The house location was perfect and close to downtown where all the shops, restaurants and lighthouse are located. You will not be disappointed with the home or its location.
