We appreciate and encourage our guests to report any incurred damages to us timely, so that we may file the claim necessary for the owner’s replacement or repair.

LOCATION: In order to locate your Cottage, you will need to use the physical address on your confirmation and not the Cottage number. We use Cottage numbers for marketing purposes only. The street number will be on the Cottage, not the Cottage number.

PAPER PRODUCTS: A starter set of paper products (toilet tissue, paper towels, trash bags, dish washer pods, soap & shampoo in each bathroom) are provided. Please keep in mind that this is only starter set, should you deplete your supply, you will need to replenish at your expense. Please plan accordingly.

LINENS: Linens are included with your rental. There will be one towel/wash cloth set supplied per guest, for the maximum number of guests the Cottage occupies.  If the Cottage sleeps 6 there will be 6 set ups, etc. Each cottage is equipped with a washer & dryer.  TCAJI has a policy against any laundry hanging outside on railings. This includes beach towels, swimwear, etc.

All cottages are equipped with ranges, refrigerators, cookware, flatware, and dishes. Each is furnished, equipped and maintained according to the owner’s preference. All Cottages are housekeeping cottages, with vacuum, broom and mop provided. Bedding includes mattress pads, pillows and bedspreads.

All of the cottages offer the following: air conditioning, heat, telephone, television, and cable TV service (some have HBO or upgraded digital cable service, where noted). Parker-Kaufman, as rental agents, CANNOT GUARANTEE the operation of the air conditioning, or other appliances: however, we will do our very best to have any malfunction repaired as soon as possible. Please note: Your refrigerator works best on the middle setting. If you have just arrived with room temperature groceries or hot items from your automobile, please allow at least 12 to 24 hours for the refrigerator to reach the proper setting. It helps to not load entire cases of hot soda cans all at once.


WIFI: Each Cottage has WIFI service. WIFI password will be in the Cottage Book located on the kitchen island. Xfinity is the service provider.

FURNITURE: Furniture moved from one area of the cottage to another will result in additional charges. DO NOT REMOVE ANY FURNISHINGS FROM THE COTTAGE or move it from one cottage to another (furniture, cookware, dishes, utensils, etc.)

NEIGHBORS: There are folks who live here full time, as well as part-time residents. Only 40 of the 122 cottages are rental, so please be courteous of your neighbors.

Being thoughtful of one’s neighbor can be another answer to good living and is an especially important consideration in a multi-family building. Loud noise from television, stereo equipment, musical instruments and talking should be kept to a minimum at all times, especially during the hours of 11:00 pm to 8:00 am. If you should be disturbed by noise, please notify management or contact the Georgia State Patrol.

PETS/SMOKING: Pets are not allowed and smoking is strictly prohibited in any of the rental Cottages. Smoking in common areas is also not allowed.

TRASH & RECYCLING: There are two compactors located north of the Cottages Clubhouse near Beachview Drive. One for recycling and one for household garbage. These are compactors and not dumpsters, so you have to physically open the door to put the trash inside.  Do not store garbage on porches.
