I am from a family of 6 children, raised in Albany, GA, and graduated from the University of Georgia's Business School in 1979. We enjoyed living and operating a publishing business in Athens (in our 33rd year).
I became restless and was driven to move near the sea and the stars, slow down, and enjoy the peace & tranquility of this special space. It was one of the best moves for me personally. I love the island life, slow-friendly-active, water everywhere, spectacular fishing, swimming, kayaking, shelling, waking the beaches, enjoying the sunrises and sunsets, and star gazing!
We are active, enjoying meeting new people and friends alike, love the outdoors, excursions, reading, having friends over for dinner or a bonfire, and spending time caring for and enjoying our spoiled rescue dog, Cleo
I enjoy providing Blue Heaven to special guests who have enjoyed our home and in order to create special memories of their own!
I love living on the island, and rise to the sunrises in the morning strolling the beach. I enjoy walking the beach and collecting items that don't belong there (litter, generally washed in from the sea), sea shells to place on the decks, watch the sea gulls and blue herons and dolphins swimming close to shore. I love to play and swim in the sea, enjoy kayaking, roller skating, COOKING!, spending time with friends, good music & books, and movies.
It is really important to me to get to know you so I can help to ensure that you have what you need to create the experience you dream of while relaxing during your vacation. We don't vacation enough, so it has to be right, when you arrive.
I am available to you during your stay 24/7. I have a local property manager/friend, who takes care of many properties (but not too many), so there is a local contact person who responds quickly to any issues or questions.

WOW! The east end offers one of the best locations on the island.
Large one acre lot with no homes behind us, and only the sea in front. Fewer people, expansive beaches, great views, offering solitude for the soul, and a marvelous place to create memories, heal the spirit, and meet new people on similar journeys in their own lives.
Unlike many areas of the island, the lots in this area are 100 feet wide, which provide for a more private-feel, with less people roaming the beaches, and the opportunity to walk only one mile east, and into the state park for many many miles. There is a private lot behind Blue Heaven, providing an extra sense of privacy from the road. Many of the homes to the east and west are held by private owners, and do not offer rental opportunities, thereby creating a much quieter & more private beachfront experience. The bike/walking paths are right out front and run east and west in both directions. It is wonderful place to enjoy!
I have received many compliments regarding the comfort of working directly with the owner (that would be me) and my daughter Jen, and Jamie (the local property manager) rather than large property management firms to solve and resolve any issues or needs our guests may have.
We are responsive and work hard to ensure the property is clean, fully stocked, and ready for you & yours to relax, laugh, engage and make memories for a lifetime.
Many locals and guests refer to our popular East End location as the most desirable stretch of beach and homes on the Island, offering expansive views and uncrowded beaches. Our 100 foot wide lot (compared to smaller lots in other areas of the Island) allows your family and friends more space to spread out on the beach! This area offers a unique stretch of beach with many private homes, allowing for a quieter, more private beach experience. We are only one mile from the beautiful St. George Island State Park for hiking or fishing and just steps away from the Island-long bike path, which are both great ways to enjoy the natural setting that our hidden paradise offers.
