Perfect

by DeAnn
The stay was enjoyable and the house was perfect. Only a few short minutes walk to the pier, beach, shops, and restaurants. The pool (although we had to heat it) was exactly what we needed. Kids enjoyed their time in the pool! The inside of the house was modern, well kept, and everything seemed in working order and updated.

A great place for a family

by Jon
We've been coming to SSI for years now and we loved this place. The house was amazing and everyone loved the pool. the location is great and once we arrived on the island we didn't get in our car again and we were able to bike everywhere we went. We will certainly stay here again.

Delightful Bliss

by Annette
A slice of paradise! The home is absolutely lovely. Light, airy, and refreshing. We enjoyed the beach feel and spent much of our time on the patio. With the french doors open, the view of the patio, pool, and pool house reminded my husband and me of our stay at a cottage in Hawaii. Our family and close friends (total of 8) stayed comfortably in the house. Everyone enjoyed the stay and wished we had booked longer. The master suites are amazing, 1 queen suite and the two chairs in the office landing area open into two twins. The beds are very comfortable and it's tempting to just stay in bed all day. If you enjoy staying in and cooking, the kitchen has everything you need. If you prefer eating out, the local restaurants are great. We will definitely plan to revisit! We had great communication with the owners and it is a pleasure to work with them. You must stay and experience yourself!

All the bells and whistles for a relaxing stay...

by Brandon
What a great house to relax and unwind at! You could tell no expense was spared to make this house a great place to get away, enjoy family time and the island. The rooms were large and comfy, everything worked as it should and it was really clean. The kitchen was well appointed and had all those little things that made for a stress free trip. Also, plenty in linens were available, towels, soaps and the ever more elusive Toilet paper was well stocked! Then there was the pool and outside area...we spent most of our days there. Having the option to heat the pool was a huge plus and made it more comfortable on the cool days/nights. The seating and lounge chairs were perfect for watching the kids play and it was a great private space to soak up some sun/or chill in the shade. This house has set the bar very high for our family vacations!

Awesome property

by Cathy
The house was perfect. We loved how nice and beautifully decorated the house was. It was spacious and perfectly laid out for our family. We took our two 17 yr old daughters and they each brought a friend (17 & 18). The girls enjoyed having their own rooms with their own bathrooms (as did we) - and they enjoyed exploring the island and doing what teens do best- photo shoots! With so much beautiful real estate on St. Simon, they had plenty of perfect spots to choose from. My husband and I enjoyed some bike rides between bouts of rain- and thankfully, we were able to get in a little bit of beach time. The pool at the house was perfect as well. Seating inside and out were ideal. The house was well equipped with most everything one would need, though I do suggest and iron and ironing board and full length mirrored in the bedrooms. Certainly not show stoppers, just icing in the cake. Instructions from the owner were clear from booking right through to check in. Communication was on point, as Zack was available for just the few questions I had along the way. We would stay again without reservation! You will not regret booking this property!

Absolutely fantastic island vacation

by Shanker
Zack's beach house is picture perfect. It was absolutely perfect for our family. We regularly visit SSI but this was our first time staying at this house. Right from checking in an hour before check in time, the experience was perfect. The house is practically brand new - you can still smell the new house smell 🙂 And its a gorgeous house. Nice master suite downstairs - wonderful dining area with benches - which is perfect for a 2.5 year old and a 9.5 year old. The island with bar stools is a perfect gathering spot while we were using the kitchen and the family was watching TV in the living room. The floor plan is open with lots of natural light. Two more bedrooms upstairs make for very comfortable island living. The bedding is super comfortable - the comforters are heavenly. The lighting in the house is also beautifully designed. It takes the beauty of the house to the next level There are tons of games in the drawer under the TV - we spent many long nights playing Connect Four, Uno and Monopoly. Every room and bedroom has a TV. They are all Smart TVs so you can download the Apps / streaming service of your choice. And then there is the back yard / pool area. Its absolutely fantastic. We paid to get the pool heated and it was the best choice for our family. Our kids and us spent many hours in the pool every single day. Zack is extremely responsive and a perfect host. He is literally a text message away. On one evening pool heater stopped working - it was too chilly to get into a unheated pool. I dont know how Zack worked his magic - but the pool service repair guys showed up at 7:30 PM in the evening and fixed it.Amazing hospitality. One suggestion to Zack - they should get some basic stuff stocked up. Salt, sugar, some coffee powder, spices, etc. Just the very basic. I think it will elevate the guest experience. Zack's house and hospitality won our family over. We will definitely be reaching out to him when we want to visit SSI again

Wonderful long weekend getaway

by Rebecca
My family and I absolutely loved our stay. Beautiful home looked just as described. Our children loved the heated pool and smart tvs in both of their rooms. Sweet memories made! We will be back!

Excellent accomodations

by Sara
This property was extremely clean, new and comfortable for two families with kids. The pool was a lifesaver when the beach was too windy. We highly recommended.

Great Location and Pool

by Austin
House was just as advertised and the pool was great ! Kitchen had everything needed for a great stay and the beds were very comfortable and house is very roomy.

Amazing Stay!

by Steven
Was such an amazing trip. Family had a blast with the pool. So close to the beach and the Pier w a short golf cart ride. Zack was a great host and very responsive. Will definitely be back.

Lovely home and Immaculately clean

by Judy
The immaculately clean home is a peaceful place. Something we especially liked was the lack of personalization. It didnt feel like staying in someone elses home. There was just the right amount of furniture and not cluttered with nic-nacs. The owner Zack was the best! Thank you again Zack, for allowing us to stay.

Best Birthday Weekend

by Tracie
We celebrated family birthdays in this beautiful home. Zach was great to work with and we highly recommend this property!

Beautiful vacation house!

by Cyndy
The house was great for our family vacation! The rooms were spacious, beds were very comfortable, and everything was very clean. The kids loved the pool and it was great to have access to the pool bathroom. Great location, close to the beach. Would highly recommend!

We didn???t want to leave!

by Whitney
We absolutely loved this home, the pool, the locationit was like a dream. The pool was the selling point for me when I rented the home, I knew we would use it all day everyday and we did! The outdoor areas are perfect for an afternoon nap or dinner after grilling. The rooms are well decorated and so clean. The kitchen had everything we needed for every meal. Zach is a great host and super attentive. We will be coming back here again for sure!!

Leah, thanks for sharing your trip with us, great shot!

Short friends & family getaway

by Sean
We had a great time with a group of friends and a couple toddlers. The pool was great and the house was immaculate. The beds were so comfortable! The house is a very short drive from the Massengale Park beach access with a playground for the kids. Also a short drive to bars, restaurants and golf. A great time was had by all.

Just as good as last time 🙂
