House was perfectly located - 1 block from the beach and minutes from downtown. The pool was great after a day at the beach. The house had plenty of room for entertaining and bedrooms were a good size.
Kelly P. Aug 2020
We really enjoyed our stay. Home was stocked with bedding, extra towels, lots of kitchen items for cooking and dining. Great AC which is a must! Nice area to walk or jog, close to beach.

My family and I enjoyed staying in this beautiful home for a week. The house was spacious, clean, plenty of room for 6 adults and 3 children, we enjoyed the hot tub, the heated pool, upgraded kitchen, easy walk to beach, local restaurants, the front porch, back porch and private deck upstairs. This house was perfect for our family. We looking forward to staying in this house again later this year. I most strongly recommend this house if you are looking for an easy and laid back house to enjoy with your family and friends.

This precious house was the perfect place for our girls' weekend! Walkable to many fun restaurants, locations, and the beach. But...why walk anywhere when the house feels like a destination in itself? The open floorplan allows for great flow and the pool and hot tub are the perfect place to relax with a vacation vibe. I will 100% stay here again on our next trip to SSI.

This beach house is utter perfection. What I love most is it feels like you are getting away to your own second home. It has the most charming atmosphere and does not feel stale and staged like some vacation rentals can feel. I felt at home and relaxed the second I walked through the door. This was the perfect house for hosting several families and the kiddos. The common areas are terrific for gathering, but we also had great privacy since all the bedrooms had en suite baths. The plunge pool was just enough for the kids to have a blast and the adults could easily cook and hang out in the kitchen while keeping an eye on them. The layout could not be more ideal. The beach is a stones throw away. Bonus! There is a hotel right next door. We were able to head over to the hotel bar and just walk right back. You truly get the best of what you would love in a vacation - beach, pool, room to spread out and relax, and a hotel bar vibe at your fingertips. Can’t wait to go back!

We have stayed in this house several times over the last few years and it is by far our favorite! The location is one block from the beach and it’s a quick walk to several nearby restaurants. The house backs up to The Ocean Lodge and we loved being able to hear the live music they have! The lodge also provides shade to the back yard which we appreciated. Our children enjoyed swimming in the pool and the adults loved sitting in the hot tub and having cocktails. There’s an outdoor shower in the backyard which was extremely convenient when we wanted to shower our kids before coming in for the day. The bed we slept in was so comfortable and the kids had a ball having sleepovers with their friends in the bunk room. The kitchen is newly renovated and the owners have done an incredible job decorating the house. Whether you’re coming down with families or for a girls’ trip, this is the perfect place to vacation!

SSI is our happy place and we have been many times over the years. The one time we didn’t stay in this house is when it was not available. Our first stay was before the renovations. I loved the quirkiness and the “beach house” feel then (and it’s so much bigger inside than it appears from the outside.) I was so glad to see that the renovations didn’t change the feel, just made it better with the updated kitchen/new appliances, new windows in the living room that let in more light, new comfy furniture with happy, “beachy” colors, and changes overall to the main level that just make it feel larger and more open (and the new, larger washer/dryer was moved to a new location!) We’ve stayed there with large family groups and just me and my husband. It’s large enough for everyone to have their own space! The kids loved the new bunk type bedroom. The house is so close to the beach, without being on the beach. It’s not oceanfront, but we could be on the sand in just a couple of minutes but could also run back to the house if we left something. The back yard is fenced, which is great with kids. Yes, there’s a hotel that backs up to it that I thought would make it feel less private, but it doesn’t! Just gives you some shade so you can sit out on the deck and be comfortable. We walked almost everywhere…up the road to rent bikes, to the Village to eat or just shop, or to the Pier. This is not a new home, it’s better. It’s an island home with upgrades and improvements that didn’t compromise the character. But my very favorite part is how you can open the windows on the front side and back side of the kitchen and feel the breeze blow through. Can’t wait for our next trip to SSI and this house. Five stars for sure!

Stayed here several times since Thanksgiving 2016, both with family and just my wife. Comfortable and convenient. We could walk to the village, which we did many times, or drive to East Beach. It’s close to everything we wanted to do. As a couple, we really didn’t need the space it has, but love coming back to this house. It has everything we need and more, large kitchen, eating and hang-out space, comfortable beds. And the tv options are great so I didn’t miss any football! Great fireplace in the wintertime. I appreciate all the many improvements but we would have continued to stay here anyway. It’s a great house, that feels like home, in a great location.

What a perfect SSI home! Location on Ocean Blvd is convenient to everything you want ~ beaches, Village, restaurants, grocery and more. House is much larger than it appears from the front to be. Pool in the back is a perfect private oasis. Rooftop dining and drinks with gorgeous ocean views steps away. Extremely convenient beach access. House has it all and is in the middle of everything while keeping a sense of privacy. Highly recommended!
Brooke N. Oct 2018
What an amazing beach getaway! We enjoyed the wonderfully appointed kitchen to cook meals and the large dining room table. Back patio and soaking pool were the perfect spot to comfortably lounge and spend time together. The quick walk to the beach was easy to navigate, and we practically had the beach to ourselves. Rooms on both the 1st and 2nd floors provided our friends with their own space and a bit of privacy. Great house for large families or a group of family friends. One of a kind space and decor was a welcomed change from the traditional cookie cutter beach condo. Hope we can come back soon!

This hidden gem is perfect for a family vacation or getaway with friends. The house and property are well maintained, decor is warm and inviting, and the location can't be beat. I hope the house is available when we plan next year's trip!

I have stayed at this house multiple times and it truly is my favorite vacation house! It’s comfortable but with cool decor and has plenty of room for a trip with multiple families and kids. On our last stay, we had 4 Moms + 2 kids each and we were very comfortable. The kitchen/living room area are open and airy and beautifully decorated. The walk to the beach is quick and easy (nice for when you forget one of the 100 things you have to pack for kids). The kids loved the pool and you can be working in the kitchen while supervising. We also loved having the hotel nearby to go to for happy hour. We walked into town to go out to eat several times as well. I will not stay anywhere else when in St. Simon’s!

I cannot express enough how much I enjoyed staying here. The size was perfect for our large group over the Thanksgiving holiday and the location was amazing. A less than 5 minute walk to the beach, convenient especially when traveling with children to run back to the house. The location alone was amazing, making it easily accessible to the Village and East Beach on foot or bike. The condos between the beach and the house play music at night in the bar, providing us with free entertainment while we sat on the back deck and kids swam in the house’s pool. The pergola was my favorite spot to sit, drink coffee, and read a book after an early morning walk. While we did have a large party, the house didn’t feel crowded at all. And the windows that overlook the pool open from the kitchen so you can easily keep an eye out on the children in the pool without being out there. It’s situated under several old trees with Spanish moss, creating an ethereal ambience for this small Southern beach town. The trees also overlook the backyard, keeping it from getting too hot. Overall, perfect stay and perfect house to experience SSI. I will always choose this house for my next visits.
Becky H. Nov 2017
We had a fabulous multi-generational Thanksgiving holiday at this property - plenty of room for four grandparents, two parents, two children and two dogs! The kitchen was well-equipped to prepare a Thanksgiving Feast while watching football in the sitting room and the kids playing in the dipping pool! And, it was so fun to walk to the beach for a little exercise after dinner. Can’t wait to visit again!
Katie O. Sep 2016
What a wonderful place to stay on the island. Great location to the beach and to downtown. Spacious common area with a beautiful kitchen and eating area. We had a large group stay there and more than enough room for everyone along with great personal space as well (bedrooms were all roomy). Having a pool in the backyard topped it off for such a great getaway!
Andrew J. May 2016
This is a fantastic home for a family vacation, or a couple of families for that matter. There are plenty of rooms for the adults and kids, including a fun bunk room with stained glass. 3 full baths and an outdoor shower make post beach cleanup easy. The open flow from the kitchen to both the family room and hot tub/pool make happy hour and food prep easy, while still keeping an eye on the kids. Looking forward to another trip!
Jennifer H. Sep 2015
I absolutely loved this beautiful home! I loved the decor so much. I also loved that you could look out the kitchen window and watch the kids swim in the beautiful pool out back after the perfect beach day. It felt so private and charming. This place is a little slice of St. Simons heaven!
Annie J. May 2015
We had a blast at this St. Simons beach home. Perfect for couples or families with children. Great location, walk to the beach and pool/hot tub at the house. Amazing kitchen and open living space. Our family had a blast here and hope to visit again very soon.
