RIVERBEND RETREAT WITH DOCK ON DEEP WATER.

Darien House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

This large 2-story home is on a beautiful and tranquil tidal creek located in a quiet and serene neighborhood near Darien on the Georgia coast. It is convenient to I-95, Savannah, Brunswick, St. Simons Island, Sea Island, Jekyll Island, and Jacksonville, FL and is surrounded by majestic oaks draped with Spanish moss. The house has large windows and doors allowing beautiful views of the river and marshes. There is a screened porch and large deck overlooking the river from the main level and a large deck and lanai overlooking the river downstairs.

The Kitchen has Jenn-Air and Bosch appliances and overlooks the dining area and a large family room with fireplace. The Master Suite, which is almost as large as the kitchen, dining, and family area, has a king Select Comfort (sleep number) bed, sitting area, fireplace, mini-office, and spacious bathroom with large soaking tub and private shower and toilet. The other bedrooms are large with private vanities and beautiful views of the outdoors. Open the casement windows to enjoy the coastal breezes or take advantage of ceiling fans in every room.

There are 2 single person kayaks, 1 double kayak, and a canoe that can be enjoyed during your stay. There are also paddles for the canoe and kayaks, life jackets, and adult and kids bicycles in the 2-car garage. The biking is relaxed and beautiful while winding through the live oaks and wildlife that cover the peninsula. There is also great bird-watching with a nature trail that allows you access to rare and exotic wildlife.

There is a marina with a lift and boat ramp only minutes away where you can put your boat in the water and purchase bait. Bring your boat, tie it to the dock, and enjoy it for fishing, water skiing, tubing, and access to the nearby islands. But please note, no personal water craft (PWCs) are allowed and idle speed (no wake) is required near docks and boats.

If your goal is to find quiet and spacious relaxation, you'll find that here. And if you're looking for activities that connect you with the outdoors and renew your spirit, it's here and within your reach. Either way, the tranquility and variety of Coastal Georgia is only a click and a phone call away.

We love the relaxing atmosphere of our home and the appeal of the Darien area. We also enjoy bringing the kids down with their friends to fish, swim, ride bikes, and canoe.

Our favorite places to go and eat are B&J's in Darien, which have the best fried shrimp around, and Willie's Weenie Wagon in Brunswick for their fish sandwich, fries, and sweet tea.

Cindy Irwin/Owner/Agent-Licensed Realtor in state of Georgia for Solid Source Realty.

The Owner purchased this house in 2007

Jeff is from this area and in 1989 we were married in the old Presbyterian Church in Darien. This was my Mother's home and is where we had our wedding reception. We wanted to keep the home in our family to be able to enjoy the beauty and fun of this community and area. We also wanted our children to experience this special part of Georgia.

There is a deep hole right below the dock where the fishing is often tremendous! In fact, it's common for folks to travel some distance by boat to fish here. In addition, porpoise feed here on most low tides and manatees are sometimes seen during the summer.

PEACEFUL AND RELAXING

  • 5 of 5
I chose this house not for the house but for the river and outdoor activities. The house was ok. Had everything we needed. The fishing was non stop, all kinds of variety to catch. Most of the time it was extremely quiet and relaxing. The dock at low tide can be a steep climb down, and the dog "angel" next door likes being your alarm clock early in the morning. She likes to bark and act like she's the boss around the place. Just go meet her early in your trip and she'll quiet down and won't be so noisy and is very friendly. Seen a small alligator in the pond before the neighborhood and got to see a dolphin with her baby swimming past the dock.

The beach was is 30 to 40 minutes. Would recommend st simon's island over jekyll island for kids. The sand is much better, but then again, better sand means, more people and was very crowded.

If you have a boat, this would be paradise. Even without a boat, I'm glad i had the chance to experience this house. We normally go to OBX, but after this trip, we are coming back to Georgia coast for 2015.

It was very nice, a good place to relax. I would recommend this place for adults. The teenagers had a hard time finding something to do. The house was very comfortable

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and we are glad you had a relaxing time.

Yes, if the teenagers aren't into kayaking, biking, fishing, crabbing, etc.....it can be tough. It's definitely a place for active outdoor fun or day trips to keep the troops happy!!

All the best to you!

WONDERFUL VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent Memorial Day week in this extremely comfortable, clean, and well-stocked house on the water. We spent our days walking, biking, kayaking, relaxing on the back porch, and visiting the nearby small town of Darien (sampling its wonderful seafood). Great place for solitude and recharging your batteries. Highly recommended.

GREAT STAY

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time. The instructions were spelled out perfectly and we were able to find the place in no time. The location was nice and relaxing and we even saw dolphins. The drive into town and down to Jacksonville was straight forward. The house was well furnished and stocked and Cindy was very accommodating and we were able to get everything squared away in such a short time before our trip down (it was last minute). She was available during the trip and even shipped my mother in laws glasses back up to us.

Owner's Response: Hey Vanna,

I really feel guilty because I can't tell you how many times in the last month I was going to call and check to see if the glasses made it to you guys. I am so glad to find out they did and i'm sorry I didn't follow up like I intended to. I'm also glad to find out everyone had a great time. Thank you for taking the time out of your busy day to post this. We personally always use the reviews that guestss post when we travel and find reviews from the guests invaluable. I've never been disappointed. Anyway, I hope your winter is soon over. You guys take care and we hope to hear from you again in the future. Cindy and Jeff.

A GREAT HOUSE IN A GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
This property was a wonderful place to enjoy biking, fishing, kayaking, and bird watching. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen well equipment. The house is well located to take day trips to Sapelo, St Simon and Jeckle Islands as well as the city of Savanna.

PERFECT FOR LARGE FAMILIES

  • 5 of 5
Lovely and inviting home with everything you need and more! We spent Thanksgiving week here with extended family and our dog. Everyone had plenty of space, and the home was clean and well equipped with all kitchens items, plenty of linens, washer & dryer, etc. We enjoyed having morning coffee in the screened in porch off the master bedroom as well as the awesome, elevated deck, which has THE BEST VIEW of the marsh/river. The ping-pong table and board games were such lifesavers when the weather was not good for outdoor activities for the kids. For older guests, the chair lift up/down the stairs was a invaluable. Owner's checked in with us by text to make sure all was well once we arrived and were very responsive to our questions. While out walking our dog, I met the property's handyman (and many other friendly neighbors). He was also helpful and personable. Everyone in our group thought the home, amenities and grounds were great - definitely a retreat - a beautiful home in a restful, beautiful natural setting. Better than described and pictures don't really do the retreat justice. Would recommend to anyone and everyone.
