We live full time in Atlanta and have been visiting SSI for more than 30 years. I'm a Georgia Tech alumnus and feel outnumbered by the large University of Georgia contingent that visits the island, but there are still many Techies. Do not be intimidated by the bulldog statues that decorate the island. I'm also an Army brat who has seen vacation areas all over the world, but none that have all the fine qualities of St. Simons. Year after year we would return to SSI and rent various vacation properties and fell in love with the East Beach area. Driving on the causeway to SSI I always felt the stress of everyday life melt away; and village atmosphere is completely relaxiing. Finally we own a house at East Beach and would like to share it with you.
4311 Seventh street was love at first sight. It was originally built in 1942 and is a traditional East Beach cottage incorporating local tabby and brick construction. The cottage has been fully updated. Seventh St. is one of the best locations on East Beach. It is not far from the Historic Coast Guard Station where you have excellent beach access and lifeguards during the high season. It is short walk across the dunes to the beach, and an even shorter walk to the marsh.
From the time you enter the island on the causeway you'll enjoy the huge live oak trees with hanging moss that are the signature of this area. The quaint village with the pier and park have constant activities and fine restaurants. At the cottage you'll enjoy the covered pool deck area with gas grill and the swimming pool that we like to refer to as the 'cocktail' pool. The cottage has been redone throughout in 2013 and fully modernized, including Wi-Fi Internet access.
