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

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!

JACOBS FAMILY

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,

FEBRUARY 2012 RENTAL

  • 5 of 5
Our month on St. Simons Island passed so quickly! The house was comfortable, nicely decorated, and well equipped (e.g., the large screen TV in the living room). We both found places to set up our computers and do work when we needed to. But we particularly enjoyed walking on the beach every day (and so did our dog!) and going to several favorite restaurants. We walked to the 4th of May Cafe in the village at least once a week, and we enjoyed going back to the Blackwater Grill in Redfern Village and the River House in Darien for special dinners. We went up to the top of the lighthouse, learned about and explored Fort Frederica, took the ferry to Cumberland Island and learned the basics on a walk with a ranger there, and otherwise explored SSI and learned about its history. The owners were both very helpful, and it was nice to know their own home was on SSI and they were available if we needed help with anything. And last but not least, they were immediately responsive when we realized we had left several items in the house, and they very quickly sent them back to us at our home in Wisconsin. It was a great month in a comfortable and convenient home! Bill and Jane, Stockholm, WI

Owner's Response: Bill,
Many thanks for the awesome review and we are so glad your snowbird month with us went so well. We are very glad we were able to earn your trust and that you found the home comfortable for your monthly stay. We love our snowbirds at Ladd Lighthouse. They become like family every year.
