We are the Ladd Family. Bart, Christina, Liberty and Lucy Jo. This is our beach house and we would love you to come see us. We love SSI and will provide you with the best guest services around. Let us help you plan the perfect family vacation, couples retreat, snow bird escape or wedding party logistics.

Christina Ladd purchased this house in 2003

Why Christina Ladd chose Coastal Georgia

Walking distance to beach, village pier and lighthouse. Borders a popular county park. Incredibly family friendly island. Dogs rule here as well. Like taking a step back in time to the early 60's, 70's. We pride ourselves on ole fashioned attention to guest services. Our many return guests since 2003 have become like family! We will go out of our way to make your visit one you will want to return to each year. You will not need a car with us as you can walk to beach and village or borrow our bikes and enjoy the islands vast bike trails.

What makes this house unique

Can walk to beach and village. Borders a popular county park with brand new skate park. Very cozy and affordable. We lend our guests everything they request and need for their stay. No hidden fees, personal service. Voted one of the top pet friendly, young child friendly rentals on SSI. You get Bart and Christina Ladd for any special request.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are sorry for the delay in signing your guestbook. Our grandaugther's wedding weekend this past October was made even more fabulous by your charming home. It is perfect for guests coming down for a wedding on the island, especially if held at The King & Prince. You can walk to the hotel and some of the islands best resturants. Of course having the beach and village in walking distance kept these Senior Mall walkers active as well. Thanks again for going the extra mile to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. I highly recommend staying with The Ladds. They treat you like family. All the best! Rose & Henry Barner

Great place for our big family!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here for the 4th of July week holiday and we had a great experience. There were 8 people and 2 dogs and we had plenty of room. The house is stocked with everything we needed so we did not have to bring beach and cooking supplies from home. We enjoyed the beach toys and chairs and also loved the big television in the main living room. The house is decorated in a lighthouse theme throughout and was charming, tasteful, and inviting. The house is a very short drive to beach access and to the places on the island that we love. The central location is ideal. We visit almost every year and I would stay here again with no hesitation. Thanks for such an awesome rental!

Great place for families, teens, and dogs

  • 5 of 5

Recently returned from an incredible week in St. Simons and our wonderful stay at the Ladd's beautiful beach home. Christina Ladd was very helpful in arranging the details of the trip and very attentive to any questions we had. She was easy to reach and had a quick response time. The house feels like home with all the details to comfort. There is a big fenced yard where the dogs could run and play. The outdoor shower was a great bonus when returning from a day at the beach. The Ladd's are very generous in providing the use of 4 adult bikes. The teens loved this. It just minutes away from the village, pier, and restaurant in one direction and the other is moments away from East Beach (Coast Guard Beach). We have stayed in the quiet neighborhood before but this is by far our favorite place in 21 years of vacationing in St. Simons. It is clean and very comfortable. If you have a baby or toddler, there is a beautiful crib in one of the rooms. We will definitely come back to stay at the Ladd's. Thank you to Christina and Bart for a wonderful stay! ~Jenna

Fun with my family, friends, and dogs

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at Lands Landing three times. Each time has been great! It's in a nice quiet neighborhood, very near the park Lands Landing is in a perfect location, an easy walk to the beach, or an easy bike ride to the Village. The owners, Christine and Bart are very pleasant, and more than willing to be of any help that you might need. The house is clean, nicely furnished and is stocked with anything you might possibly require. There are more than enough linens and even a crib if you need one.

The best part for me is that they are very pet friendly. I have been able to take my two dogs with me the three times I have stayed. The fenced yard is a must for me. If not for that, I could never stay for a whole week, not to mention the two weeks like I did this last time.

I would recommend this house to anyone of any age who enjoys the spirit of St. Simons.

Thank you Ladd family for sharing your house with us!

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place for our family to stay. The owner was very nice to work with! The house was lovely, clean and felt like home. It was also very nice to have access to beach chairs and other beach items so we didn't have to travel with these items. Would definitely stay here again.

The Ladd Lighthouse felt like home!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed for 7 days and we had a wonderful time! The house was very nice but still homey and comfortable. It had a fenced back yard for pets, bicycles for the adults and children, an outdoor shower was provided for after a visit to the beach. The home is located in a great area, close to the beach, The Village, restaurants, bars, shopping, and Demere Park is just out the front door! This property had everything that my family needed to have a wonderful relaxing vacation! The owner was very nice and responded very quickly to my questions and needs. I would defiantly stay again and would recommend this house to anyone wanting a great place to stay!!

Easy to feel at home!

  • 5 of 5

March 2015 was our 2nd visit to Ladd Lighthouse. This time we stayed for a month. The house is comfortable, nicely appointed and comfortable. There is a completely fenced yard that is perfect for our dogs. Located on a no exit street, it is free of through traffic. Still there is easy access to a nearby park (just down the street), the village, the beaches, golf courses and the causeway to the mainland. It's easy to arrive, kick off your shoes, sit down ad feel completely at home. The owners respond quickly and are always courteous and friendly and easy to deal with. They go out of their way to make sure that everything is OK. We will be returning to Ladd Lighthouse for a 3rd time.
