Townhome, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
We have had an exciting fall with some renovating! We have recently replaced all of the carpet on the second and third floors with the lastest in vinyl plank flooring and have completed some painting. We are very pleased with the results and hope you will be too!
Park your car and walk or bike to everything on the island! Our home borders the King & Prince Hotel property, so the location cannot be beat. The beach is a short two minute/one block walk from the front door. Or turn the other direction and in less than a minute you have three of the best restaurants on the island at your disposal -the Crab Trap, Crab Daddies, and the Beachcomber. Not to mention Ocean Motion for all of your kayaking, beach and biking needs. The King & Prince also offers oceanfront dining and a nice lounge for cocktails and appetizers. Our home is a townhome situated on four levels. The first level contains a 1 car garage. Behind the garage is a bedroom with a queen bed and a bath and a TV, which has access to a patio that is gated - a perfect spot to store beach equipment and bikes and rinse off the sand from the beach. This is a great room for grandparents or a babysitter since it is more private.
The second level is completely open and perfect for socializing. There is a large, fully equipped kitchen, half bath, living area with TV, DVD, and stereo, and a sizeable deck with a settee and a table and chairs and stairs that lead down to the patio. The third floor has two large bedrooms (queen in each) and a 'Jack and Jill' bathroom.
The back bedroom on this floor has a TV and a covered deck outdoor seating, perfect for reading and relaxing in the shade or enjoying a beverage, away from the main living area. The fourth level contains a sun deck, a 'crows nest', and a loft. Enjoy a drink on the top deck as you watch the ships on the ocean or look over the marsh.
We love coming to St. Simons with our family and we hope your will enjoy our home as much as we do. Please call or email with any questions!
Note: This property is NOT part of the King & Prince, so there is not access to their pool. However, there is a beautiful public pool by the lighthouse with a huge kids area.

My husband and I are native Atlantans and currently reside in Dunwoody. I have been coming to the St. Simons area my entire life. My husband fell in love with the area during a visit to St. Simons over New Years Weekend 2000. On an impulse, we purchased our first property on St. Simons during that fateful trip and it was the best decision that we have made. We love visiting the area with our 2 girls and can't wait for the day that we can spend even more time on the coast.
Owner purchased this Townhome in 2000
Why Owner chose St Simons Island
We loved the location of this property. We can walk out the door and be at the beach in 2 minutes. We also loved being able to walk to several great restaurants and over to the King and Prince for a coffee in the morning or a lunch by the pool. From the top deck we watch the ships come and go and the fireworks on New Years and the Fourth of July and never have to leave home.
What makes this Townhome unique
Due to the floorplan of the unit, you are afforded much more privacy than in a typical condo or hotel. With the living areas spread out on 4 levels, it is easy to find a little quiet time. And the large living room/kitchen area is a great place to be when everyone wants to be together. Our guests love the covered decks and the private patio area, especially for the pets.
Sports & Adventure Activities
Very convenient to the beach and the pier area.
The BEST ever
Our stay at SSI was comfortable, clean, close to everything, and the owner Elissa, was accommodating. We had trouble with the cable tv when we first arrived and I called Elissa, she was right on it. It was promptly fixed.
Our experiences have always been positive. (This was our 6th year.) Our company loves the crow's nest, the closeness to the beach and privacy of the garage guestroom.
Strange layout but nice home
The house was a nice spot for our getaway. We had 5 adults and chose this property mainly bc it had 4 beds. The bedrooms had a strange layout- we could have used some helpful directions. There is one behind the garage, 2 on the second floor, and one is on the third floor with an exterior entrance only. The person who stayed up there said it was pretty cold and not convenient for getting to the bathroom at night. Anyway, everything else was fine. Thank you for renting your home to us!
Thank you for your comments. The primary reason why we state that the home has only 3 bedrooms is that we do not consider the fourth floor loft area as a suitable bedroom due to the fact that there is only an outside entrance. We do have a futon up there in case someone wants to have some quiet time (and our daughter likes to stay up there!). Our description does state that the bedroom on the first floor is behind the garage but I will revisit the description to improve on the verbiage. Thanks for your comments and for staying with us!
Very nice place and location. The area is really beautiful very short walk to the beach. The owner makes everything so hassle free as well.
Great overall! Well equipped and clean!!
