Rent Bella Rustica Cottage on Saint Simons Island, (Coastal) Georgia
- a boutique island experience that is both dog & you friendly -
I am a retired federal agent with a strong creative side which I have dovetailed into an interesting life; I am an instructor at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center, a REALTOR, and I have a small, boutique interior design business. All my homes have been featured in national design magazines the latest being a Feb 2016 article in Country Living magazine; see Press page. My current home, Bella Rustica Cottage, has been photographed for County Home magazine and This Old House magazine.
Bella Rustica Cottage has an industrial flair with a touch of 'Italy' and the influence of the organic with a nod to the sea. A professional kitchen replete with a gas range and several ways to enjoy your coffee (Keurig & french press), tea and/or wine await. You enter through a courtyard with a fountain and garden area filled with rosemary bushes, jasmine & an olive tree. Each bedroom opens onto a deck or a private courtyard.
My home is single story, 1850 square feet, dog-friendly with two master bedrooms/bath (king & queen beds) and a third, smaller room I use as an office which opens via french doors onto a deck. A luxe depth Restoration Hardware leather sofa, that can easily function as an additional bed, often does so for me and mine. I only offer Netflix & Amazon Prime via several television sets; one 65 " and the other 42". Wi-fi included, of course. I leave lots of great books and design magazines to encourage rest, relaxation & creativity. Hot water outside shower, fire pit, chaise chairs and picnic table welcome you to enjoy the privacy of the backyard. Concrete countertops, trolley doors to enter bathrooms, unique lighting & design elements and organic cotton bedding and bath towels provided.
The master bath offers a curbless shower & separate bathtub and the guest bath offers a shower/bathtub combination with 'grab bars' for ease and safety.
A dog door enters into a fully enclosed 1/4 acre yard with 6-foot fencing. Elevated dog bowls provided.
My home is located in the gated community of Island Club (Retreat), a Sea Island golf community, which is 'beach-side' - two miles to the beach, majority of restaurants, grocery shopping - on the lovely community of Saint Simons Island, Georgia. You can walk to the clubhouse from my home.
