A 2015 Renter Wrote:: 'We are all marveling about your beautiful home here. It feels very comfortable and relaxing to stay here. The pool was awesome - large enough for everyone to swim in and enjoy. We had so much fun here we found by the end of the week we were not walking to the beach near as much! We enjoyed the beautiful design and discovering all the details everywhere – The pictures do not do your home justice! A simple “thank you” seems so inadequate to describe the joy your home gave our family. May God bless.' – Gail P. from North Carolina
Islanders for 35 years! Owner of The Swing Set Children's Boutique on the Island and Amelia Island for 25 years. My husband is a writer and theologian. We will be closing our store 2015-16 to retire.. We would like to be free to travel and visit our grown four children who are leading much more interesting lives than our own. Our oldest son lives in LA and is an animator/story board director for Dream Works. Look for his third movie "Kung Fu Panda III" out in Jan. 2016. We also have a daughter and son in Nashville, Tenn. My daughter, married to a music agent, is also a writer - AND an artist (she painted the wall art in this rental which she grew up in ) Also a world traveler, Spanish teacher, yoga instructor, leather maker, bee keeper, raises chickens and angora rabbits and studying for her doctorate in Psychology - but has no clue why she intimidates me! She has my only two grandchildren. age 2 & 4 adorable boys and a baby girl due in Jan. My son in Nashville is in a band "Fox, Bear, Snake" and working on his maters to teach and also coach soccer. My youngest son lives in Seattle and plays professional soccer for the Seattle Sounders. So you see we are just boring parents ready for some adventure traveling to visit our kids!!
Less than five min walk to the beach or leave your car at home and avoid parking hassles going out to eat. Just a short walk to village and many amazing places to dine! Our guest Rve over this vacation home!
On a quiet private street amongst century old oak trees yet right in the middle of everything! The pool is larger than most private homes - you can actually swim and play games in it! Spa heats up in 20 min and the pool can be heated for a gas fee.
Our stay in this house was exactly what we were looking for as a quick getaway before our kids went back to school. We loved the location! We walked to the beach, to the pier and village, to restaurants, and our kids could ride their bikes safely throughout the quiet, not so busy neighborhood. The house itself was great--absolutely loved having a pool for swims first thing in the morning and before bedtime at night. There's ample sleep space here, so everyone in our family of 6 had their own bed and space. House is clean and well-maintained. The owner/manager was lovely. We didn't have any issues, but she was available to us and gave great recommendations. We will definitely try to make staying at this house a back to school tradition for our family.
This house was perfect for our large family. My brother and I brought both our families and between us, our 5 kids. This was the ideal set up for our situation. Plenty of sleep space, comfortable beds, a fun room for all the kids, everything we would need in the kitchen. We also loved having a pool on and a hot tub and are really glad we opted for a property with these amenities. The kids loved playing here in the morning before we hit the beach, and the adults enjoyed relaxing at night, cooking out on the grill and sitting in the hot tub. We also loved that we could walk to multiple fun locations from this spot. We could walk to the pier, the village, the ballpark, and the beach. We already excited to plan our next trip to St. Simons and will try to stay here again. The owners were friendly, had great communication, and were available to help or answer questions. Thank you for a great stay!
This was our first family (ages 3-74) vacation to St Simons Island and this home fit our needs perfectly! The house is beautiful, it is located very conveniently between the beach and the Village and Darlene was a pleasure to work with. When we arrived, we were all amazed at the detail in the decorating of this lovely place. The pool was beautiful and came in VERY handy for the kids and adults alike. There was plenty of room for all 7 of us so, we felt right at home. The kitchen was nicely appointed with all the necessities and we were able to have some of our meals at the large kitchen table and some out by the pool. There are also lots of great restaurants close by. Which was really nice. The location is excellent as it is a short drive, bike ride or even walk to the Village and Pier in one direction and the beaches in the other. This kept our days full of interesting things to do for everyone.
The owner, Darlene, was available and attentive to any questions that we had about the property or the island.
Overall I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a laid back, relaxing, St Simons Island experience.
My husband and I have rented many homes on Saint Simons Island( East Beach) for several years now- none of them have compared to this one! it literally does belong in a magazine, but it is so comfortable you feel at home immediately. As soon as you pull up to the front of the house, you cannot hardly decide what to look at next. IT IS EXACTLY AS IT IS PICTURED- ONLY BETTER IN PERSON! Every room has it's own unique character ( even the laundry room!) and is decorated beautifully. The kids room is so awesome, with gorgeous sea life painted on every wall-even the kids bathroom is cool! The attention to detail in this home has to be seen to be believed.
The pool area has a beautiful privacy fence that is covered in greenery, it is well maintained and looks beautiful lit up at night.The beach was especially crowded one day, so we left and spent the entire day floating in the pool! Plenty of seating outside for lounging, I don't think we ate a single meal inside! The kitchen was stocked with gourmet pans and glassware. We cooked three meals a day and never needed anything but the food we brought-Darlene had everything else there! We had way more room than the two of us needed, so I can imagine if you had a large party this house would fit the bill perfectly, and its all on the same floor.
The neighbors here are VERY SERIOUS about their noise curfew ( which is 10 pm on the island), so much so, that they left a warning sign on our vehicle the morning after we arrived - so if your looking for a party house- this isn't it! The neighborhood is so quiet and peaceful, and I don't blame them for wanting it to stay that way.
Darlene, the owner, made everything so easy for us to check in and out- she was available by email, text and phone at a moments notice and an absolute pleasure to work with.
If your looking for a property to stay in that will be an unforgettable experience for your family on this wonderful island- this is the one! THANK YOU DARLENE FOR SHARING YOUR AMAZING HOME! Rich & Brandy Patrick
The house is beautiful, and the pool and hot tub are wonderfully relaxing. I enjoyed the actual stay at the house. However, I had a TERRIBLE experience with the renter. If you are a college student, do NOT rent this home. Upon arrival, I did not feel welcomed, merely chastised seemingly because of my age. The owner kept the security deposit despite the fact that we had not violated any of the "Damage/Reservation Deposit" stipulations. I will never rent from her again.
