About Christina Ladd

We are the Ladd Family. Bart, Christina, Liberty and Lucy Jo. This is our beach house and we would love you to come see us. We love SSI and will provide you with the best guest services around. Let us help you plan the perfect family vacation, couples retreat, snow bird escape or wedding party logistics.

Christina Ladd purchased this house in 2003

Why Christina Ladd chose St. Simons Island

Walking distance to beach, village pier and lighthouse. Borders a popular county park. Incredibly family friendly island. Dogs rule here as well. Like taking a step back in time to the early 60's, 70's. We pride ourselves on ole fashioned attention to guest services. Our many return guests since 2003 have become like family! We will go out of our way to make your visit one you will want to return to each year. You will not need a car with us as you can walk to beach and village or borrow our bikes and enjoy the islands vast bike trails.

What makes this house unique

Can walk to beach and village. Borders a popular county park with brand new skate park. Very cozy and affordable. We lend our guests everything they request and need for their stay. No hidden fees, personal service. Voted one of the top pet friendly, young child friendly rentals on SSI. You get Bart and Christina Ladd for any special request.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are sorry for the delay in signing your guestbook. Our grandaugther's wedding weekend this past October was made even more fabulous by your charming home. It is perfect for guests coming down for a wedding on the island, especially if held at The King & Prince. You can walk to the hotel and some of the islands best resturants. Of course having the beach and village in walking distance kept these Senior Mall walkers active as well. Thanks again for going the extra mile to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. I highly recommend staying with The Ladds. They treat you like family. All the best! Rose & Henry Barner

Great Value

  • 5 of 5
We spent July 2014 (two weeks) at the Ladd Lighthouse. Great property, easy beach access walking, biking or very short drive. The house is as described. We had two dogs so the fenced yard was key and a park down the street was a bonus. Most importantly the owner(s) were extremely easy to deal with and very responsive to our needs and questions.

Awesome Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I enjoyed a wonderful and memorable vacation at Ladd Lighthouse. At the beginning we encountered an outside problem with the cable connection for the living room. After communication with the owners and overseers of the house, Bart (the owner) came all the way from Atlanta to remedy the problem for us. We salute you Bart and Christina for going the extra mile and caring that much about your clients! The house, the island....it was all perfect! Thanks for everything!

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5
We are winding up a week's stay and the entire family agrees that it's one of the best vacations we've taken. We don't want to leave the island or the rental home. It was everything we expected and more. Bart & Christina have done a great job taking care of all the details and what renters need to be comfortable away from home. The fact we could bring our family dog makes it even more special. Highly recommend! This is our first trip to St. Simons and we'll definitely be back. Already looking at next year's calendar. Thank you Bart & Christina!

On a whim, we decided that a vacation was needed. By chance I happened upon the listing for a nautical themed three-bedroom home that felt just right for us. Located off a short side street, the house is very centrally located between the beaches or the pier - both are in walking distance. The house is very well kept and comfortable. It is a short drive to other sites on SSI as well as the mainland. All in all, this was an excellent experience for us. We will recommend this place to our friends or others wanting to get away to SSI.

Just like home!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had a wonderful week at this house. It's exactly as described. Taking our dog Rugby to the beach was especially a neat thing...lots of fun. I used to say "If you want it like home, stay home." Now I'm saying "If you want it like home, go to Ladd Lighthouse." We didn't want to leave! Thanks Christina and Bart. You guys are tops!

Owner's Response: Janice & family,
Your review was so touching as I personally try to make each of our guests feel like it is their home away from home. We are glad your dog enjoyed the stay and are pleased to remain one of the few highly rated pet friendly homes on SSI. Hope you will visit with us again soon.
Best,
Mrs. Ladd
