    Property description
    Shellman Bluff
    Holiday Rental House – 
    3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6
    This cottage is truly waterfront and marshfront. In remote, Shellman Bluff, GA, it's just 15 minutes from I-95 and 30 minutes from Savannah GA or St. Simons Island. The closest "real town" is Darien, GA, 15 minutes away. Not fancy, but more than comfortable, the home is all about the water and the dock. It's on a tidal creek just 300' from the White Chimney River, which leads to the Intra Coastal Waterway. The water on our creek is navigable much of, but not all of the day. For serious boaters, there is a public ramp just 1/2 mile from the house... you can actually see it from our dock. If you're looking for a quiet place to unwind, this is it. Enjoy our screened porch facing the marsh and the sunset. Use our gas grill to grill your shrimp or fish! Then, feast you... more

    Things to Do
    Additional Location Information
    The neighborhood is typical of Coastal GA fish camp areas... the lots are about 115' wide on the river.. and like this one, most have docks. The street is not fancy... it has all types of homes...some nice, some not so nice. But they all have live oaks draped in Spanish moss, some palms, and more marsh and water than the eye can take in. You can crab and fish off our dock. Sit under our palms, pick our back yard tangerines, and sample our kumquats in the winter season. Park your boat or trailer in the driveway. There are 4 very nearby good restaurants with truly fresh seafood... They take the crabs, shrimp, and oysters right off the boat into the back door of the restaurants in Darien and Shellman Bluff... only to come right out onto your table. It's sweet! If you like fried shrimp or fresh crab, this is the place for you. Also, don't forget to golf in Shellman Bluff... The Sapelo Hammock Club is open to the public and very affordable.
    There are so many nearby things to do...

good views over river and marsh to rear in a very quiet area with plenty of parking area on site, the house is quite large with plenty of the things you need and more like cutlery, towels plates etc and would take 6 people easily and was very clean. if i was to pick faults with it the bathroom is a bit small and shower not very good and the washing machine sounds like the local band is playing and it would have been a help to have had a clothes line to dry clothes but over all it was as described and good value for money more

Management response:

Hey Steve, thanks so much for the nice review. It sounds like we need to have a repairman attend to the washer and dryer at once. Wow, I had no... more
