|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
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?

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 in Williamsburg, VA. Presently live in Davidson, just outside of Charlotte, NC. I wear many hats: an oceanfront, resort, rental condo owner; property manager; rental agent; dog tender (That is Mazie in the picture. Spends most of her day on the rug by me at my desk.) and my favorite; loving husband to the beautiful woman in the picture with me. 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 a cross country camping trip; 3000 teens in all, spanning 33 years. My nephew, Doug Gill, slipped into my shoes as I stepped into my retirement. Now he has passed it on to Sassy Smyth. Curious? Do a google search, 'tctw'.
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 12 properties fill my stable. It was 1967 when I took ownership of my first rental property. In the years since, I 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 24 pictures, a video and lots of verbiage. I am here to answer all your questions.
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.
