OCEAN VIEWS. SIX BLOCKS TO THE VILLAGE

St. Simons Island Villa Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms each with a full bathroom, sleeps 7

A beautiful, nearly new condo with stainless steel appliances and stunning travertine floors, granite counters and hardwood throughout. Choosing a vacation spot is a big job. Searching through all those websites, trying to imagine what you and your family might like. Looking for the one place that'll meet your needs like no other. It’s so easy to make a mistake in your selection. However, here we are talking about St. Simons Island, one of the last stops on the way to getaway heaven. Yes, it is in a fantastic part of the world. Yes, it has breathtaking views and fine furnishings. And, yes, its owners will be sure to go the extra mile to make you happy.

The condo is custom designed and built to the owners' specifications and furnished just the way you would your home — no “cheap beach” feel anywhere: we mean great mattresses, plantation shutters and appealing artwork and objets throughout. Airy and light-filled, it has spectacular views pictures can only suggest. Be assured that the living room, dining room, kitchen, master bedroom (we call it 'Seaview'), and the western guest room (called 'Folly'), all have ocean views. But 'Quartet' bedroom is not slighted; its bay window overlooks the pool area, the charming First Baptist Church across street, and up-island to the north. The owners named their bedrooms for the three original cottages that once occupied the exact spot as the brand new, 11-unit Seaview condominium. (Lots of history there the Hurts could tell you about...if you’ll lay on dinner!) The old cottages may be gone but not the breathtaking views and great location, with the same handy beach access directly across the way.

St. Simon’s Village is a quick 5-10 minute walk west via a quiet, tree-lined street, or stroll on the sandy beach. This quaint locale bustles with shops, restaurants and activities on the Pier. Should you walk east, in the other direction, you'll come to the King and Prince Hotel, which has a great restaurant and Starbucks, Ocean Motion clothing shop and bike rentals, Crabdaddy and Chelsea bistros, gift shops, and the island’s old Coast Guard station. Consider the little things also: cable, of course, in all bedrooms, HDTV in the living room/master bedroom and built-in DVD players throughout. You might want to bring the family pet, our beach chairs are yours to enjoy, and you are hooked into the world via wireless high speed Internet. There are lovely area rugs but no wall-to-wall carpet that may cause problems for allergy-sufferers. We feel that the small amenities in a vacation home make a huge difference.

Our biggest fear may be that you’ll come, and then want to stay on in our condo when your vacation is over! Just imagine a vacation where you could relax and even do nothing but sit in the living room, watch the lighthouse light make its circular journey at night, or during the day monitor big cargo vessels going in and out of Brunswick port and the many fishing boats chugging up and down the channel. If you are new to the St. Simon's Island area, you are in for a treat. If you are returning, then you already feel the spell of its understated magic, historical appeal, and quiet beauty. Then, there is our second-to-none housekeeper (she also will be available to baby sit if you wish) and maintenance service, both only a phone call away (a phone number we will give you before your visit).

VERY IMPORTANT - Few people would decide on booking a vacation spot without first seeing pictures. We like to think we have taken it a step further and thrown in a video to boot. It helps tie in all the pictures. Please scroll down to just passed the Amenities Section. You went too far if you hit the Review Section. See the picture there? Click on the arrow in the middle to start the video.

I usually respond to an inquiry within 24 hours of receipt. If you haven't heard from me within that frame period, check the calendar for availability. I usually don't respond if we don't have availability. Next try your spam. Sometimes I get caught there. Last but not least call me at 704-896-1995 (Peter)

Thanks for considering us.

ONCE YOU SUBMIT AN INQUIRY, YOUR FIRST COMMUNICATION WILL COME FROM VRBO/HOMEAWAY. VERY IMPORTANT TO READ IT CAREFULLY ESPECIALLY IN REGARD TO SECURITY.

My name is Peter Cole, and I am the owner’s representative. I went to the College of William and Mary. Presently live in Davidson, NC just outside of Charlotte. I wear many hats: an oceanfront, resort, rental condo owner; property manager; rental agent; dog tender (That is Woody in the picture. Spends most of his day in the chair across from my desk watching me work.) and favorite; loving husband. As a Medicare card carrying senior, I look back over a full life. My chosen life ‘occupation’ (my Mother could never bring herself to call it a job) was to take teens on cross country camping trips; 3000 teens in all, spanning 33 years. My nephew Doug slipped into my shoes as I slipped into my retirement. My friends and relatives worried about my having too much time on my hands in retirement so they gave me their resort properties to manage. My reputation as a good manager/agent grew. Now 13 properties fill my stable. It was 1967 when I took ownership of my first rental property. In the years since, we have bought and sold 11. I come to you with a lot of experience. I do not take lightly the importance of your vacation. I want to match your needs with the properties I represent. There are 12 pictures, a video and lots of verbiage. I am here to answer all your questions.

REVIEW TITLE: BEAUTIFUL CONDO CLOSE TO VILLAGE

  • 5 of 5
Review Text:
Beautiful Seaview condo was perfect for our family vacation to St. Simons Island. From the huge master suite, to the granite countertops in the kitchen, this is hands down the nicest condo we have ever rented. The condo was immaculate when we arrived. It is very spacious, with lots of natural light, and a great deck with partial water views. We enjoyed watching the large transport ships go by every afternoon. Seaview is within walking distance to the lighthouse and village parks, shops, and restaurants. During low tide, the beach is also a short walk from the condo, and East Beach is a short drive or bike ride away. We enjoyed all the history on the island, Ft. Frederica is a must. We highly recommend St. Simons, and Seaview.

MY VACATION BEACHY RENTAL CONDO

  • 5 of 5
We loved the beachy condo's appearance. It was clean, inviting and had a view of the ocean. We were only steps from the ocean which was so much fun and easy. It had all the amenities we needed for our 2 week stay. The bedrooms were spacious and the baths were updated and immaculate. The porch was a great feature because at night we could sit at the wrought iron table, have dinner and watch the world go by. We were very close to the village where shopping and dining were abundant. It was very important that our dog was allowed to join us there. It was wonderful that the property included a darling pool and we could see it from one of the bedroom windows. We are telling friends this condo is perfect for a truly spectacular vacation. The condo looked exactly like the on line photos-no surprises there. Maybe in person, it looked even better. Thanks, the renter.

2013 SUMMER VACATION

  • 5 of 5
This condo had everything we needed. The three bedrooms were each very private and had a good size attached bathroom. There was plenty of room for everyone to socialize, eat or have some quiet time. The building is centrally located and is an easy walk or bike ride to the village and other local eating spots. The condo is clean and nicely furnished. We would love to stay in this unit again!

AN AMAZING VACATION

  • 5 of 5
This is our attempt at writing a short review of our amazing stay...we could go on for pages and pages! Thank you so much for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful home. We honestly feel you are selling yourselves short...everything was MORE than expected. Some of our favorite things about the property weren't even highlights in the posting! The first thing we experienced as we opened our car doors was the wonderful aroma of the honeysuckle covering the gated yard. We spent as much time outside on the balcony as possible not only for the sunshine but for that smell! From the wonderful little pool area to the hand painted mural in the elevator our first impressions were amazing! The condo itself is just beautiful....homey and comfortable yet classic with its professional decor. The home is full of little amenities that were such pleasant surprises...from the extra blankets to the Seaview soaps to the beach chairs for us to use. The size of the condo itself was surprising...the video doesn't seem to convey the amount of room and light you'll have! We were so happy to sleep on some of the most comfortable mattresses and pillows we're ever experienced on vacation...including luxury resorts! Even though mother nature didn't cooperate with us, the beach was lovely and only 50 yards away. Saint Simon's Island is a gem...from the friendly people, to the restaurants, and the wonderful downtown area. We can't tell you how appreciative we were to be able to bring our English Bulldog, Mack. He LOVED the house, the beach, and the town! We've already decided we will be back...at least a week next time!

THREE BEACH COUPLES

  • 5 of 5
This condo was a wonderful place for our annual beach get away for three couples. It was fresh and clean, great proximity to the village and lovely decor. We loved the comfy beds and well-equipped kitchen. The walk to the beach was less than a minute and the village a 10 minute stroll. From the covered balcony, we enjoyed the nice views, ocean breezes and ships passing by. Definitely a great place to stay on St. Simon's Island!

Perched in the building’s southwest corner blesses Seaview 303 with vistas to the south and west that embrace both ocean and Jekyll Island to the South (wondrous Cumberland Island is also visible in the distance) and just west of it historic St. Simon’s Island Lighthouse (walk five minutes under Spanish-moss-laden trees, and you can climb to the top--depending on your fitness that morning. Should boredom set in you can always look over and admire Jekyll Island. If you like one-of-a-kind wildlife refuges and fabled barrier islands, just beyond Jekyll you can glimpse, even better visit, Cumberland, the National Seashore and Georgia’s largest barrier island boasting stunning dunes and wide sandy beaches, alligators and armadillos, loggerhead sea turtles and wild horses roaming everywhere. (Scroll down to ‘Golf’ to read more about location)

Golf: Enough golf courses so that you never have to play the same one twice and don’t forget kayaking, tennis, bike trails, and the numerous other tourist attractions. Drive to Jekyll over a causeway to tour the Millionaires’ Club and Cottages, or hike onto Cumberland via a short, fun ferry ride from St. Mary’s in Camden County. The old adage is certainly true in this case--location, location, location. No, this is not the Hamptons; we think it is much better, and far less crowded. To us the Golden Isles of which St Simons is part is magical, evoked not only in Eugenia Price novels but Sidney Lanier’s ode, “The Marshes of Glynn.” The Golden Isles also includes Sea Islands, Jekyll (of the Millionaires’ Clubhouse and Hotel fame), Cumberland, Sapelo, and Little St. Simon’s. Fish off the pier in the Village (south end), or Hampton Point (north end), or your choice of sailing vessels (many for hire around here). Do ride the St. Simon’s Trolley and see Fort Frederica, Christ Church, and more. In conclusion, calendar and pricing are kept current on this web page. Save your questions for the moment. Simply scroll down to the bottom and fill out form. We really look forward to having you. Thanks so much for considering us.
