Rent directly with the owners and save $$. Lovely and quiet garden home in Sea Palms resort. This property is adjacent to a beautiful golf course that offers golf as well as two pools and tennis. Great for a family vacation, located at the end of a quite cul-de-sac. Close to shopping, movie theatre, restaurants and Sea Island resort. The beach is a short 10 minute drive away but you can park near the Coast Guard station which now offers a full snack bar, showers and bathrooms for your day at the beach. We have beach chairs, umbrellas and a beach cart for your use.
PLEASE NOTE NO BOATS OR BOAT TRAILERS ALLOWED ON PROPERTY
Bring your bikes and ride to the village. There are bike paths all through the resort and offer scenic views of the island and the resort. Relax on the screened-in porch and enjoy the soothing sounds of quiet chirping as you go to sleep at night.
If you have not been to St Simons then you are in for a real treat. You will wind your way around the island under cypress oaks bearing spanish moss. The main village and pier area offer several shops and unique restaurants. Barbara Jean's is known for some of the best crab cakes you will ever eat. You can also fish at the pier or play a round of putt-putt golf. We always enjoy the fudge shop and just sitting at Brogens enjoy an adult cocktail while looking at the ocean.
From St Simons you are only 20 minutes away from Jekyl Island where you can ride horses or visit their water park. Savannah is about 80 minutes north where you can stroll down River Street or take a ghost tour. You are also a short drive to Amelia Island and Fernadina Beach, Florida for a day trip. Of course once you get to the island and start relaxing you may never want to leave your beach chair. It really is a special place.
You will truly enjoy this vacation escape and want to come back again and again.

About Christy Jones
After living in Atlanta we had moved to St Simons in the early 90s and fell in love with the island. After moving back to Atlanta a few years later we wanted a vacation home that we could come to and get away from the hectic pace of Atlanta.
Christy Jones purchased this cottage in 2000
Why Christy Jones chose Sea Island
Sea Palms is in a resort that is very quiet and relaxed. We are at the end of a cul de sac and in a ideal location to go bike riding or just explore the area. You can use two pools at the resort and get discounted golf.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We loved staying here. The house was qiuet and had everything we needed. Very close to the pools at the Sea Palms Resort as well as the shops and restaurants in the Sea Island shopping area.
We went to the village and loved Barbara Jean's restaurant
