Well done remodel in great location! Clean and well appointed. The screened front porch is perfect! We enjoyed our stay. We highly recommend and would stay again!

Perfect stay

by Morgan
We've been coming to St. Simons for decades, stayed in all kinds of houses, hotels, and condos, and this was one of the best accommodations we've had. Comfortable, clean, spacious and convenient to the beach and the village. Our family loved it.

This home was perfect for our group. The walk to the beach was easy, the pool was a nice place to cool off, they had everything we needed for the beach and to cook nice meals. Would definitely come back!

We had a wonderful time at this beach house. The front porch and pool were the major highlights. The super short walk to the beach was an added surprise!

Guest Review

We enjoyed our girls’ trip this summer to SSI!! Two of us are locals, and we still felt as is we were truly on vacation. This house was absolutely beautiful and the pool is the perfect size!

Guest Review

The island was a great place to visit! Friendly people, great restaurants. Short trip to Jekyll Island and Drift Wood beach a must! The house was super cozy with a great porch swing! It had everything we needed. Pool was a plus!
