About this listing

Peaceful laid back setting amongst Magnolias and Oaks draped in Spanish moss that softly dances in the marsh breezes beckoning you to stay a while on Georgias largest barrier island in the Golden Isles. Pet friendly & human friendly! Same neighborhood as the HGTV house!

The space

As shown- this is a master bedroom turned into a cozy pied-à-terre mini apartment with ensuite private full bathroom (tub, shower, toilet), separate vanity area (hairdryer and make up mirror provided), 254 sq ft total vacay rental suite living space. Serta thick memory foam comfy bed, cotton bedding, cafe table/2 chairs, mini fridge, toaster oven, microwave, coffee maker, twin Futon loveseat, Uverse 150+ channels AT&T cable TV, high speed wifi, private entry/exist window door. Note: weight limit on the queen bed of 2 average size adults (not to exceed 400 lbs max total for two adults) to help those needing more "space and size" make a more suited fit, loveseat is removed for guests with big dogs to give more floor space. Best suited for 1-2 people but can sleep up to 3 people max. The French doors are frosted to allow natural light acting as a large privacy window only. The entry/exit door has a window to see outside and inside. LGBT friendly. Pet friendly. Race, Spirituality & Cultural Diversity Friendly. Everyone that is a decent good person is welcome! Unfortunately, my 1974 treehouse style boardwalk is not wheelchair accesible nor are my doorways.

It's best suited for 1-2 ADULTS (queen bed) but can sleep 3 (loveseat is a twin futon). Loveseat is sometimes removed from room when booking with pets in order to make room for pet bedding/crates.

This is a precious place to stay while visiting the island. Sophie makes you feel at home and the sweetest gift Bag was left. She is an animal lover and was beyond kind that we had our golden pup with us. It is like a wonderful personal hotel room and was very cozy!

My boyfriend and I rented Sophie's villa for the weekend. We both work in the school system and we wanted a quick getaway before work starts back in the Fall. Of course we needed to bring the dogs along so that they could join in on the adventure! Sophie was thoughtful enough to take out the love seat so that my dogs could have more space to be dogs. She also set us up with a few dog towels, a water bowl and dog friendly UV protection. I would recommend Sophie's villa to anyone who wants a comfortable and cozy vacation spot. Sophie has made sure that the room is well equipped with coffee maker, fridge, toaster, and microwave. Between eating out and running around with the dogs we enjoyed napping on the very comfortable Queen sized bed in the unit. This villa was the perfect reprieve from the hot July days and the hostess was accommodating and friendly!

This was a cozy partition off of the main house in a quiet neighborhood. The apartment is just as described by Sophie and has everything you need short of a full kitchen. I'd recommend this place for a single person or couple looking for a place to stay for a few nights

Great quiet neighborhood!!!! The room was super cute!!! Sophie was an awesome host. She is super quick to respond to any questions or needs. My wife and I were there for our 10th anniversary/babymoon and Sophie was very thoughtful to provide sweet little touches as far as decorations and also pregnancy craving foods!!!! She was also great at recommending restaurants and things to do on the island!!! The bed was the best most comfortable bed I've ever slept on!!! Being pregnant and having low back issues, it was perfect and I actually slept through the night!! :)

Sophie was so accommodating and made me feel right home. Sweet, loving lady who truly made her home feel like my own. This is perfect for a budget friendly bungalow get away on Saint Simons. Very dog friendly yet clean. Cute decor :) thank you Sophie! I will be back

This place is great! It is driving distance away from all of the fun on the island. Great food, cool tours, lots of sand. The host, Sophie, and her partner were great. Very accommodating. We drove in and had to check in much later than the cut off but Sophie stayed in contact the whole way. The room was clean and cozy, it smelled great. The area was quiet and peaceful. Spanish moss on the trees and water fowl near the pond. Good stuff. I would definitely return the first chance that I get.
