Waterscape – 744 Oglethorpe Avenue

Waterscape - 744 Oglethorpe Avenue

4 Bedrooms 3 Bathrooms Sleeps 10 St Simons Island Pets Friendly

This is a very unique house - it was built in 1935 on St Simon's shoreline and would become the home of an honored US Navy Captain for many decades. After a thoughtful renovation, the home one of the most distinctive beachfront cottages on the island.
We've designed the house to be open and comfortable, and to maximize the ocean view. There are a few memoirs of Captain Carmichael's naval career displayed in the home, and the overall décor is bright and open - perfect for a few days at the beach!

The first floor is designed as a place for your family to enjoy one another and enjoy the beach - an open concept floor plan provides beach views from nearly every spot - back of the house is a wall of windows with views of the beach and Jekyll Island beyond. The beach is view-able from the family room, large chef's kitchen, and dining room.

The second floor features 4 bedrooms to accommodate up to 10 people:

Captain's Quarters: The master bedroom has an ocean front view and features a king bed, flat screen TV, en-suite bath with dual vanities and a walk-in shower.

XO Room: The "executive officer's" room also has ocean views and has a king bed. There's a big flat screen TV.

Lieutenant's Room: The third bedroom also has a king bed, big flat screen TV, and lots of natural light from floor to ceiling windows.

Crew Quarters: The fourth bedroom was designed with the kids in mind. It features a set of bunk beds and two additional twin beds in a loft above (sleeping 4 "crew" in total).

As you will note in our photos, the house backs up directly to the ocean and you can walk through our back yard over the rocks onto the beach sand. Thanks to newer condo construction our ocean views are not panoramic from inside the house, but nonetheless the view is amazing, the sound of the ocean waves is so relaxing, and the aroma of salt air is unmistakable so close to the water's edge. We're also super-convenient to the center of town - the Pier Village - where most shops and restaurants are. We are just a couple of blocks away - an easy stroll for morning coffee, evening dinner or ice cream.

The ocean front pool is like no other option on St Simons. The pool has a shallow and deep end (3.5 feet shallow, 6 feet deep) and the ocean facing side has a sunning deck that hosts 2 beach chairs so you can keep you feet in the pool water and enjoy the sun, views, and sounds of the beach without leaving the back yard. The pool dimensions are 11x32 (26' of length for swimming, 6' for the sun deck). The pool can be heated for a $50/night fee.

Booking notes:
Summer availability is Saturday to Saturday.
Spring and fall availability is more flexible - 3 night minimum, but unfortunately we can't confirm reservations that create 1-2 night gaps.

Baby gear we provide:
Pack N Play
High Chair (booster style that straps to a chair, has a washable food tray)

Note the fireplace is ornamental only, can't light it.

What a gorgeous house with such gorgeous views all day long. Being this close to the ocean is so special and with the added bonus of the pool, it's pure magic. There was a nice part of the day where the pool got full sun, which was a fabulous surprise we weren't expecting from the photos! The kitchen is great and it's so awesome to cook with such great views. We also loved waking up to the view from the master bedroom, which was also very comfortable! Its a great mix of modern and historic - new appliances, finishes, a great heating/cooling system! We were just two, so the house was plenty big for us, but the other bedrooms, especially the kids room, looked so lovely and fun and the house seems very spacious and accommodating for larger groups!

You cannot beat the location of this house. The beach is beautiful and just a few steps out the back door. It was too chilly for a dip in the pool during our visit, but it's a gorgeous pool nearly on the beach. Such a fun set up! Everyday we walked the short walk to the downtown area and had lunch, shopped and chatted with the very friendly locals. We fell in love with St. Simons and look forward to returning. Our two small pups also enjoyed the house and found it comfortable. They absolutely loved exploring the beach and we were so pleasantly surprised to find St. Simons is incredibly dog friendly. Don't hesitate to bring your well-behaved fur babes! As far as the house itself we LOVE a historical home and this place didn't disappoint with the charm and quirks of an old home plus the comfort and convenience of a modern home. The bed was comfy, the water hot, tons of counter space, an incredible six burner gas range, newer washer and dryer, and an A/C that cooled as it should (not a forgone conclusion with rentals!) Our little group of two humans and two pups found ourselves not at all ready to leave. If only we could've squeezed in one more long beach walk…

Excellent location

by Vicki
House was clean and decorated beautifully. The location is excellent. The back door opens to the beach, and the Village (populated with restaurants and shops) is a quick 5-10 minute walk. I love the large windows with amazing ocean views. It was perfect for a family as everyone could make their own choice for the day, e.g., spend time on the beach, swim in the pool, walk to the Village, etc. Only point of note is all the properties are closely located on east beach, and this property is between two condos. The pool is lovely with amazing views but it is in view of the neighboring condos. That aspect didn???t bother us and didn???t impact us - but just noting it for future vacationers.

What a perfect week in St. Simons! The house was perfectly situated for EVERYTHING - 10 minute leisurely stroll to pier village (filled with restaurants, stores, coffee shops), safe neighborhood, plus directly on the beach. The house was spacious, fully renovated, clean, comfortable, and filled with all the modern amenities we look for (Xfinity cable, wifi, ecobee thermostats, washer/dryer, outlets on every nightstand). We were there for a week and totally felt like locals - we absolutely loved it and can't wait to return!

Excellent Stay!

by Jessica
This was our second time staying at this property, and once again, our time there was wonderful! The location of the house is great, with a wonderful beach view and within walking distance of the park, shops, and restaurants. We met up with extended family ranging in age from 7 to 72, and everyone enjoyed the stay. There was plenty of room to spread out but cozy spaces to be together. The living area on the first floor, with its large kitchen and separate sitting areas, was a perfect hang out spot. The well-appointed kitchen made food preparation easy. An added perk was the option to heat the beachfront pool, and the kids really enjoyed getting to swim despite the cool weather. Our first stay at this property was flawless, and when we encountered an extremely minor issue this time around, management handled it immediately and went above and beyond to insure our satisfaction. As repeat guests, we obviously already really like this property, but the exceptional management of this rental far exceeded our expectations and surpassed any high end properties we have stayed at in the past. All of us were sad to leave and are already looking forward to our next stay here!

Fabulous stay. House is so close to everything. We walked everywhere. All the things you need are there from beach towels to beach chairs . The pool is great when you want a break from beach. The beach is so close from back door. Wonderful to watch sunrises to sunsets from the back. Coffee makers , blenders , plenty of kitchen needs. Host was so quick to get repair guy out to fix the stove. Can't wait to book again for next year. Love Saint Simon not too busy and such a cute area . Beach is awesome. Fishing was great too.

This property was even better than pictures. It was the perfect family beach vacation house. The decor was so cute! My sons loved the submarine themed loft. The pool was perfect and beach access was SO easy (super important with 3 young kids). The cleaning crew they have is 100 because the house was spotless when we arrived. Walking into town for dinner was such a plus. 5 stars and we plan to return.

Perfect location in St Simon's

by Lisa
We loved our long weekend celebrating a big birthday in St Simon's. This beautiful home gave everyone space to spread out and space to be together. An easy stroll to shopping and amazing food. The rest of the island was fun to explore on our rental bikes. But best of all, with pool and beach just outside the door we didn't have to travel at all for good chats and afternoon naps. The house and property are exactly as described and one of our all time favorite VRBOs.

This location of this house and proximity to the beach was amazing. The renovation on the main floor was nicely done. Some of the upstairs bedroom/bathroom doors are old and had bad locks...and it definitely lacks closet space in the master bedroom....but the house was clean and comfortable and you can't beat the view! The added nautical touches are very cool, too— especially in the kid room/loft.. The only thing that would make this house better would be to add a small deck off the master that would also provide a covered area down below to further enjoy the outdoor space and spectacular view. This house has tons of character and proximity to the village was also fantastic. I'll be back!

This is a great house. We had our family of 6 for a quick pre Thanksgiving. This location is quite unique. Walking distance to the village and pier and a perfect beach spot. Even though wedged between two taller buildings it really has a beautiful view of the ocean. It allows easy access to the beach and the pool is amazing. We had it heated and were able to use it quite a bit. The living space is modern, open, and offers great views. The kitchen is huge and super fun to cook in. We loved our stay!

This house was amazing and the location was even better! Situated just steps from the beach, this spot allows you to enjoy sunrise, sunset, and everything in between. On top of that, the hosts have great beach chairs, umbrellas, and toys available for use by their guests. And the beach is even dog-friendly. The house was perfect with an amazing kitchen and ample space for guests to gather downstairs. The decor is simple but clean and classy. From the upstairs bedrooms on the back side, you have beautiful views of the ocean. We loved the nautical theme and clever finishing a and the beds were extremely comfortable. Having never been to St. Simon's before, we had no idea where we should look for a place. I have to say, we could not have chosen better!

We had 6 adults and 2 kids staying during our visit. We absolutely loved the proximity to the ocean. There is a path that takes you directly to the beach. We used the pool quite a bit as well. We were shocked at how close everything actually was to us and walked to shops, restaurants, ice cream, playground, and the pier almost every night. Great fishing right along the shore. Saw so many dolphins. The house itself was fine- we have stayed in better and worse. A little more pricey than we would have liked. There were little things that we suggested to the owners (clothes baskets, better brooms, dust pan...). The upstairs was a bit warm. However the beds were so very comfortable. Thankfully we had excellent weather and spent all of our time outside. They had everything we needed for the beach (chairs, umbrella, buckets etc for the kids...) The owners got right back with us with any questions we had. Our son left his teddy bear and they mailed it back to us within a week. We are so very thankful!

My family loved our stay in this DREAMY beach house on SSI. Best location on the island - you can walk to the pier and village on the beach during low tide - and it has a lot less housing than other parts of the beach so there are not as many people around. The house was clean, neutrally decorated and had just about everything we needed. Every member of my family commented on how comfortable the mattresses were - even the kids! The kids room is perfect for brothers/sisters or cousins vacationing together - and with the added benefit of the loft it seems like there is a 5th bedroom! Communication with Ryan and his team was fantastic. Can't wait to go back!

This house is amazing. I almost don't want to tell anyone about it coz once the secret is (Website hidden by Airbnb) will probably be booked year round. However, I would be doing the host Ryan a de service if I did not write a review. So here it is: Location: This is one of the few singel standing family homes with beach access, it is a gem. Most appear to be condos or apartments. Great location in relation to other amenities. we did not need a car that much, we just walked to the village, the beach, the pier, etc. The pictures are not clear so in case you are wondering, like I was, this is a beach front home. The Home: a single standing, four bedroom, 3 bath home. Well lit with plenty of sunlight flowing throughout the house. Huge open kitchen with a commercial grade stove/oven, granite counters, etc. Has a living area, a dining area and a space I like to call an oasis, across from the kitchen. It's facing the beach where you can just relax and watch the ocean waves till you fall a sleep...a hidden oasis. The bedrooms have plenty of light, huge beds, very well thought out ( don't have to worry about calling first dibs on the master bedroom, they are all nice). Like I said, I wish I could keep this secret gem to myself...but that would be conduct unbecoming of a good Airbnb member, we are all fellow travelers. Besides, Ryan deserves the highest ratings and recommendations available, or better yet create a special category for this host!

This is a great house with a great location! The walk to the beach is seconds, and the views are great! The entire house has been newly renovated, and the renovations are great! Everything felt super clean and the kitchen was so nice! 3 bedrooms have king size beds. One small down-side is that one of the full baths is on the main floor, where all of the bedrooms are upstairs, but that was not a big deal. There is 1 full bathroom in the master bath and 1 other full bathroom in the upstairs hall. It is also really close to the main downtown area... you could walk if you want. Overall we had a great trip and were able to enjoy the beach.

This house is unique and we loved it. The location is amazing, on the beach and within blocks of the lighthouse, pier, restaurants, shopping and activities. The beach is lovely and very family friendly. Some of our favorite things about the house are: the very comfortable king size beds (3!!), the loft which looks like a submarine even with the red light and controls, the original round, porthole windows, looking out at the ocean from the sitting room off the kitchen, the amazing decor, the newness of everything-furniture, appliances, paint, etc. Ryan is an amazing host. He answered all of my questions immediately. My highest recommendation. Susan, Seattle

Our family of 5 loved staying at this beach house! Its clean, organized and in a great location. We walked/rode our bikes everywhere and the dogs loved walking on the beach every day (before 9:00 and after 6:00). Of course, the pool is amazing too, especially enjoying cocktails at night overlooking the beach while the kids had fun swimming. Only thing that would have made this place better was a fence for the dogs but that wouldn't deter us from staying here again. We1ll be back!

I did not want to leave! I've been coming to SSI since I was a kid (I'm now in my 30s). This was by far the best place I've stayed on the island. It's got to be one of the only single family homes with a private ocean front pool. My kids swam for hours. If they weren't in the pool, they were at the beach a few steps away. You can't beat that. The house is walking distance from the Village/restaurants and also from the King and Prince area restaurants—pretty much an ideal location. Ryan is super attentive and an excellent communicator. Same for the management team. They checked in with us the day after we arrived to see if we needed anything. I hope to stay here every time I make it down to SSI. Thanks for a fabulous stay!

Very well design home with great open floor. The home is great for a large family with a lot of kids, they loved the kids room, heated pool with lights. The view was breathe taking and just feet from the beach. You have to book this house it is a must for your family vacation, all the restaurants are within five minutes walking.

We had a great stay!

by Taejin
The highlight of the house is of course the pool that is right on the beach. It's really something special to watch the ocean while lounging with your feet in the pool. Don't let the presence of the two adjacent condos dissuade you. The view from the house is still great. Shops, restaurants, and the lighthouse and park are less than a 10 minute walk away. The house otherwise is nicely appointed, clean, and the beds are very comfortable. A/C and internet work very well. Our 4-year old insisted we had to come back to this beach house, not any other. We'll be back for sure!

Even better than advertised!

by Anonymous
We had a wonderful stay with our 10 family members of varying ages, from 6 years old to 70. The open concept kitchen is beautiful and extremely functional for multiple people doing prep work with ample seating for meals. The stunning ocean views from the kitchen, sitting area, and two of the bedrooms were our favorite part of the house. Kitchen was well-stocked, and the refrigerator was large enough to accommodate the food for our Thanksgiving meal. Although we were initially concerned about parking our 3 larger vehicles, parking was not a problem at all. We loved walking out the back door to view the sunrise in the morning and the relatively easy walk or very short drive to the park and restaurants. Looking forward to our next visit!

Great place to stay!

by Anne B.
This is a cute home in a great location. However, it could use a few updates--better mattresses in the bunk room, better pillows and towels, and only one clothes hangar could be found in the entire house!

Family Beach Vacation

by Martha S.
The location is fantastic...steps to the beach and close to town. Loved the beautiful pool... perfect for all members of our family! Spacious room for our family, however, the furniture was soiled with wear and tear and could have been cleaned periodically throughout the season. The large kitchen/dining area was very nice. Response by owner and property manager was excellent and they took care of our requests immediately. We loved our first visit to St. Simons Island and hope to return!

Clearly paradise on earth

by Ted P.
We are, were, a faithful OBX family. This place changed that. Saint Simon island was beautiful. The house was everything it looks like and pet friendly to boot. The naval maritime decor was great, very interesting. The kitchen is large and open. The bedrooms big and bright. But the pool, oh the pool. It was the most used thing in the house. See, the ocean water was very warm. Nice to go in but very warm. The salt water pool was cool, so refreshing , we were in it night and day. The beach is huge. At low tide probably 100 yards wide. The sand soft, warm, plentiful and miles of it. The beachfront and town is so different than the OBX. Quiet and not commercialized. The town was a very short walk down tree covered streets. Spanish moss hanging everywhere. It really made you feel like you went 100 years back in time. We are so looking forward to a return trip next year and for years to come. There is so much to do and see that we feel we haven’t even scratched the surface.

Saint Simons Island Beach House

by Bonnie F.
This house was perfect for my family of 4 adults and 2 children under 5. It is within walking distance to restaurants and shopping. The kitchen is large with great appliances. But the best part is the amazing view from all the rear windows. Guests are only steps away from the beach, plus the pool is super nice.

Great house, great location

by Malene T.
We had a wonderful visit, the beach location was perfect for morning walks. There were only 2 of us but this house would be perfect for a large family. The kitchen was well equipped, beds were comfortable. The location is close to the lighthouse and an easy walk to downtown shops and restaurants. I would highly recommend this cottage and look forward to returning.

Great! I would go back anytime!!

by Mary Lynn E.
Beautifully restored. We loved the nautical theme. The kitchen is amazing with white marble and lots of cabinets and counter tops and all the right appliances. View to the ocean was adequate. There was very little beach when the tide was in. Would loved to have had a sitting area outside on beach side of house and a back door. It was within walking distance to the Village which was fun for all. The house was so comfortable and conducive to conversation, that my brother and sisters and I enjoyed sitting around visiting.

744 Oglethorpe Ave

by Marianne S.
Quaint house nice big family room with all the amenities you need for a one or two week stay. Easy access to the beach and five minute walk to the village. 4 bedrroms three full baths one of which is in the master bedroom, the other is a shared bathroom with the other three bedrooms. There is a full loft in one of the bedrooms but there is no airflow in the loft, one full bathroom on the main floor. The kitchen is awesome with a huge convection oven and six burner stove top. Big island and garbage disposal. Pots and pans for most needs were provided as well. Full set of dishes and silverware and a very nice dishwasher also on this property. It was a great time with 8 adults and three children. Althogh there is a house in front of this one the ocean views while you sit in the sitting area are awesome. Everything was very nice and the owner answered all the questions we had prior to,oir visit. Hope you enjoy your sty there as much as we did....

Beautiful home , tastefully renovated , all the comforts of home!

by Tana
Wonderful home just steps from the beach. Tastefully decorated and renovated . Very clean with all the space you will need for a large family or gathering. Updated kitchen and appliances and laundry. Owner has provided a very well stocked kitchen with silverware, dishes, pans etc. and also very nice linens (sheets and towels). Tv's and internet made it a great working vacation too. Great location, short distance to shops, restaurants, St. Simons lighthouse and museum. The sunsets are exceptional and people are so friendly and welcoming. Dog friendly community and beach. Additional public beach access just a few steps away. A new pool and deck were being finished when we were there and I am sure that space will be most enjoyable too! Short distance from Jekyll Island too for a day trip. You wont be disappointed and we cant wait to come back. Very accommodating and great owner to work with as well. Cant wait to schedule another trip ! thank you for the great experience and memories.

New Year's Family Get Together

by Debbie
Overall, this property was great. Great location, comfortable and open living area for our family of 10 to sit together and watch the College Play Off Games along with eating family meals. The views of the water along with the close walking proximity to the Village Pier were absolutely fantastic!! We got to take plenty of pictures of 2 gorgeous sunsets on the beach along with 2 beautiful nights of breathtaking stars with the light at top of the lighthouse beaming out in multiple directions. It was a great family get together to ring in the New Years that was truly relaxing! We cooked together, shared many laughs, played multiple board games, took long walks along the beach, walked to the Pier multiple times and just chilled out in great company!! The only thing our family saw that was just so-so was that for as large as the kitchen is and with so many cabinets, most of them were empty. There was no blender, crock-pot, colander/strainer, meat thermometer, or mixer - all things that we were looking for when we were cooking meals. Also, sometimes the ice maker worked just fine, and other times, it did not work at all. We winded up buying 2 bags of ice for the 4 days that we were there. All in all this property was great for our family - we took away many great memories that were made over the New Year's Holiday weekend! Thank you Ryan for always being available and quick to answer all of our questions before we arrived. Most of ALL - a HUGE THANK YOU for adding a cable package that included ESPN so that we could watch the college play-offs when we arrived on Saturday late afternoon! We would definitely recommend this property to others for a nice, relaxing get away to St. Simon's Island!

Great Home and Wonderful Location!

by Allison
This was the perfect home for a girls getaway weekend! Our group had a great stay! It was our first time to the island and we couldn’t be more pleased with the location, beachfront views and great floor plan of the house. Everything was great and the house was beautiful.
