Overview

About the property

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 with a double bed, which is great for teenagers seeking to get away from the family for a little while (note that this area is not conducive for smaller children as it is very separate from the rest of the home and has access to the roof deck). 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.

About The Owner

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.

The Owner purchased this townhome in 2000

Why The Owner chose Coastal Georgia

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you very much for letting us rent your St. Simons condo for the third year in a row. We love the location! Alan and his dad love hanging out at the top perch of the condo. We look forward to coming back next year.

A Week in Paradise

  • 4 of 5

The weather was nearly perfect during our week-long stay on St Simon's Island. Highs in the upper 60s to low 80s, sunshine every day, very low humidity. It was a little slice of heaven! The location of the condo is superb---just a block from the beach. The neighborhood is very quiet, and access to all parts of the village either on foot or by bike was very easy. We enjoyed the accommodations, and the kitchen was particularly well-equipped and spacious. Like many houses close to the beach, there are a lot of stairs, and we decided that it made for a great cardiovascular workout! Central air on each floor made for a very comfortable home. Bike rental less than a block away was reasonable, but it would have been nice to have bikes on site like other nearby condos.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. We did provide bikes in the past but eventually gave up. We had one guest leave one in the village and never found it and then others were ridden on the beach and rusted to the point that we had to throw them away. We hope you will stay with us again.

Location, Price and Comfort!

  • 4 of 5

This is the second time we have rented this condo. It is very comfortable, 2 minute walk to the beach and great restaurants. And a great price! What more could you want? Drive up, park your car, and never leave again.

Perfect for our family

  • 4 of 5

The location of this property was perfect for our family. It's one block from the beach and adjacent to great restaurants. Our kids loved the top deck and we enjoyed the sunrise from there in the mornings. The house was way more than what we needed for our family of four but you cannot beat the location. We will definitely be back.

Yaya's wedding adventure

  • 4 of 5

This property was perfect for a girlfriend's trip to attend a wedding at the King & Prince. We wanted something in the close vicinity to both the beach and the wedding location and this fit perfectly. There are many stairs so it is not a place for those with hip/knee problems,the owner contacted us before we rented to make sure we were aware of all the stairs, but the downstairs bedroom worked well for our handicapped friend. She was able to go up to the main floor, where the kitchen and living area are located. We enjoyed the outside decks and especially the crow's nest each night after we tucked in our friend in her safe & secure room. The enclosed garage was also a great asset. Although the bathrooms & kitchen could use a little updating, ( I'm sure that would mean an increase in the rent), the rooms were large and had good light from all sides, there was plenty of room for a large family and the price was so affordable. The furnishings & beddings were very excellent and comfortable and we had plenty of extras of everything. We were able to walk to several restaurants, the beach and the wedding, what fun, no driving. I hope we can go back again and stay a little longer.

2 blocks to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We love St. Simons Island and found this house to be a great base for our playtime on the island this year. It was an easy walk (paved all the way) to the beach. The owner had a couple of boogie boards and a beach chair available at the house. You can also rent lounge chairs, umbrellas and SUPs on the beach approach.

The house had plenty of room for us to spread out and do our own thing or come together for meals and games. The dining table had plenty of space for our group of 6.

The kitchen had everything we needed to cook meals in house. There was plenty of silver ware, utensils and lots of drinkware. There is even a Foreman grill if you would rather not grill outside.

The 4th floor bedroom has a double bed and would be difficult to sleep 2 adults. The beds were comfortable. The rooms sizable.

We will return.
