I dabble in art and loved my photography career.

I have worked art shows and also critique.

My husband is a sales consultant to the telephone industry. We have 4 kids & 2 grandkids.

What drew us to SSI was our first visit to Jekyll in 1998. We watched the Sidney Lainer Bridge being built an engineering marvel) and laugh at the times we waited for the old draw bridge to open. My husband said that's how its done... SLOW. We saw some changes but love the building code (no high-rises).

There have been many improvements to SSI, one of the best being, NEPTUNE PARK in the village. A well thought out master plan. We watched it being built in Feb 2009. A NEW Water Wonderland for all ages. It features 3 connecting pools with a kids water park, playground, mini-golf and water aerobics.

What a view overlooking the Atlantic Ocean & Jekyll Island!

Please be assured your stay at this private home will exceed your expectations

I am only a email/phone call away to answer ANY questions you have.

Barbara Pole purchased this house in 2010

This private home was exactly what we where searching for. It took 4 years to find it and many open houses.

For Weddings 2014 Combine both Properties for 6 BRs and 5 Baths. Please call me for additional information.

A Wonderful Rental!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 14, 2014
  • Stayed: Apr 2014
This home was a great fit for my family (7 adults, one child and two small dogs) as we combined my son's wedding on SSI with a week-long Spring vacation.

The bedrooms were arranged to allow for excellent privacy. The open kitchen and main living area was spacious and the kitchen well equipped. The upstairs area is exactly as described. The large TV allowed for those who wanted "no talking" during the NCAA basketball tournament, Braves baseball and The Masters to be isolated from those who wanted to enjoy socializing downstairs.

We enjoyed morning and evening walks around the many nearby side streets, including walking to the "Bloody Marsh" battle site. After walking to a nearby BBQ place on our first day, those who played golf returned for takeout and a short walk home several times. We spent a good deal of time on the front porch and/or the side deck.

Driving less than 1.5 miles for sunrises at East Beach, walking on the pier and shopping in the Village and picking up a quart of the delicious crab soup a couple of times at the Crab Trap added to our enjoyment.

The owner was most helpful in answering questions prior to our visit and continued to communicate (via email) during our stay. She even emailed us with a list of clothes our forgetful daughter left behind and made arrangements to mail.

Very nice home, clean and well organized, nice location for walks, walking distance to the heart of the Island, a short drive (or long walk) to the beach and Village and a very helpful owner helped to make this a most pleasant visit.

Owner's Response: Thank you!

Dealing with the owner is the concept behind VRBO. Vacation Rental by OWNER..

The reason why I personally manage my private home is to personally speak to caring, responsible families like yours. Any questions I am an email away.

The house is a solid built ....low country home... with the perfect spacious open lay out for all to relax. .

The pretty flowers are opening and new colorful ones where planted this spring, to enhance the beautiful landscaping.

Thank you., Barbara

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us, it was even more charming than the pictures. One family member said it looked like it was straight out of Southern Living, with attention to detail and tastefully placed. There was everything you would want in the upgraded kitchen and open floor plan. It was perfect for the family gathering we had. The yard is very private, gorgeously landscaped, with a two car garage and the weather was perfect for us to sit on the deck in December! We had lots of fun playing pool in the "Man Cave", with many other games available also. We have been coming to SSI for many years and would return in a heartbeat to your home. What a respite! Thank you again for a wonderful experience.

Beautiful home!

We had a wonderful stay in this home. Our daughter was getting married and we needed a home with at least 2 bedrooms on the main floor because of aging parents/grandparents coming for the wedding. The house and location were perfect. We even held rehearsal dinner in the large living, kitchen and breakfast areas. We had about 25 people for dinner that night. Everyone commented on the house and how beautiful it is. Our families will never forget the week we stayed there. The home was sparkling clean and very well maintained. . The owners are easy to contact and very friendly.

This was our first trip to St. Simons, and we were not disappointed. Barbara went above and beyond by sending us information about the island and what we could expect when we arrived. The house was gorgeous! The landscaping in the yard was so well maintained, and we really enjoyed seeing the white fence when we rode up on the bikes we rented (you must rent bikes when visiting!).

The house itself was clean, and so well organized. It was like being in our home, but at the beach. We never had any issues cooking or finding anything- it was all labeled, and easy to find!

The house itself was within walking distance to stores and restaurants. We enjoyed walking up to Starbucks in the morning for exercise and coffee!

Thanks so much to Barbara for being so easy to work with, and for allowing us into your gorgeous home!
