Featured in Coastal Living Magazine: 'Placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1997, this six-bedroom rental blends historic charm and modern amenities. While brick floors downstairs recall the home's former function, a 52-foot veranda upstairs encourages today's guests to stay awhile..... [the owner] tastefully furnished the carriage house so that guests feel pampered....The rental's prime location puts it within walking distance of the village, fishing pier, St. Simons Island Lighthouse, and beach.' (September 2007)

From our Guestbook: This is our second year to vacation here [and] What another wonderful time we had...Our grandchildren (and even adults) had wonderful times in the pool with all the pool toys. Our son from Atlanta brought 2 kayaks and they were a hit this year! We just love the spacious rooms, walking to the beach and village, seeing the places we saw last year as well as new ones. We especially like all of us having our last meal together on Saturday morning at The Sand Castle -- then we are off back to work and normal routine of carpooling, etc. We will wait patiently for our return trip next year! (Family from Birmingham and Atlanta).

(We) enjoyed a great family get together. The location was great....What a nice time for cousins, aunts & uncles, & two new third generation little ones. Thanks for allowing us to stay in your home. The spacious living room/dining & games area gave us great accommodations. We fell in live with the Golden Isl. (Family gathered from FL, TN, AL, GA and Nebraska).

From our Guestbook: We loved the house. It was perfect for our family reunion. After a rough beginning (Tropical Storm Faye) -- we were pleasantly surprised with a great weather week. The pool was awesome! The children and adults loved swimming in it morning, noon and night. We found all sorts of wildlife on the beach. Walking into town, shopping and miniature golf were great. We loved the pumpkin bread at Barbara Jeans. The little kids table worked out well as we ate lunch & dinner outside by the pool. Thanks for sharing your home! (Three generations from Boston)

The Ladies from St. Marys, Stuart, Florida had a long weekend of wellness & fun! This home suited our needs and held 10 of us beautifully.

Thank you. (Elementary School chums 60+ years later)

Enjoyed Being With the Cousins

We live and work at Disneyworld but the true magic came from getting cousins and family together at The Strachan Carriage House. The little ones enjoyed the new kids water park in the village and the sea turtle center on Jeykll island. Most of all, we just loved being together in the pool. Very relaxing and perfect.

We just returned from our St. Simmons long weekend. Our stay was wonderful. The home is in the best location on the island in my opinion. Two blocks from restaurants and shopping and one block from the beach. Home very well appointed. Very comfortable. The pool was the best. Two thumbs up

Location Location. St Simons Island offers many options for a varied holiday party and the Carriage House is ideally situated to explore within a wide radius of home base and satisfy diverse interests.
We believe you get what you pay for and we wanted something a little upscale from basic condo or villa offerings. We got it and enjoyed all the facilities and comforts.
The property is extremely well appointed and maintained
and we improved this by thoroughly servicing the Jenn Air BBQ.
The history of the Island and neighboroughing Jekyll were the subject of a 20 question quiz. This prompted visits to as many of the local monuments and buildings of interest as could be fitted in.The winners went home with the Reunion Cup.
The Oyster Shack in Brunswick was the only restaurant/bar that we used. Lunch of oysters and shrimp were the popular choices.
The Sea Food Market on Gloucester Street was our main source of food as we all like fresh fish.
Fishing from the pier was not good due to the tides being all wrong but we tried.
Our families came from Australia, England, Boston, and South Carolina. Everyone loved the choice of venue.
The Carriage House looks to be a very popular choice for large gatherings and we would recommend it.
