If you’re looking for a relaxing beach vacation, St. Simons Island is the destination for you! Explore the island by bike, stroll the pier, visit a 19th century lighthouse, indulge in delicious local cuisine, or simply lounge on the sandy beaches as you listen to the soothing sounds of the crashing waves.
While visiting this quaint island, stay in this charming 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom home with loft. The home sleeps up to 8 guests, so it can easily accommodate a family or group of friends traveling together. From the moment you first walk through the 9-foot, Spanish Cherrywood front door, it’s clear that this home is full of character and charm. Inside, the Italian tile flooring, cathedral ceilings, and exposed beams repurposed from old ships give this home an airy, classic beach-house feel. Spend your island mornings enjoying the lush garden, featuring a tranquil fish pond with waterfall, a hand-built berm, and banana, lime, orange, and avocado trees. After a day biking around the island or playing on the beach, head back home to unwind. Prepare your favorite foods in the fully equipped kitchen, take a bath in the jacuzzi bathtub, play games with your companions, watch your favorite TV shows and DVD’s on the flat-screen TV, or simply settle down in one of the comfortable beds and rest up for another day of adventures.
From this home, you’ll have easy access to practically everything in St. Simons Island. You’ll only be a 10-minute walk away from the delightful town of St. Simons, where you can check out the pier, the local pool, historic lighthouse, tasty restaurants, specialty boutiques, and unique galleries. Beaches can be accessed near the pier or through multiple entrances along the east side of the island, which include free parking. The home also comes with 2 “beach bikes,” so you can leisurely peruse the island along the bike paths. Come see for yourself all that this lovely home and island have to offer!

We wanted to stay in a place that felt like we were away from it all, and this cottage did the trick. All the unique details and art remind you of St. Simons and the Georgia Coast. Inn Keepers were there when you needed them.
Some would say the house needs some TLC, but I feel it added to the charm and overall character. Would stay again...
The Banana House is the ideal vacation rental while visiting St. Simons Island. My family of six was well accommodated in this adorable bungalow. In proximity to historic downtown and nearby beach access, we could not have stayed in a better location. We will be returning to the Banana House for many years to come!
My wife and I have been coming to this house for years and we absolutely love it. Great location, cleanliness, amenities and layout. You are within walking distance to the pier and if you would prefer to bike they are available. We love this house and will be continuing to stay here for the foreseeable future. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking to enjoy Georgia's best kept secret.
I am from Central Coast California, near Hearst Castle. I'm pretty picky when it comes to where I stay on my rare vacations to the East Coast. This home was REALLY NICE. Excellent location, all necessary kitchen and sleeping 'extras' and good internet and TV. I'd stay there again at the drop of a hat. Plenty of room for everyone. A nice, quiet 'end of the road' location that's proximate to the heart of the small but 'quaint' downtown, the beautiful Georgia Seacoast, and tons of Southern History. Check it out~! !
This rental was terrible: outdated and uncomfortable furniture; signs with "do's" and "don't's" posted EVERYWHERE; photos on website "brochure" totally unrepresentative of the property; closets, pantries, etc., crammed with owners' personal effects with no room to hang/store renters' clothes; bedrooms filled with additional blankets/quilts/sheets/linens in every section of the room; kitchen appliances outdated or nonfunctional; dirty kitchenware stored in drawers/cabinets; bathrooms lacking towel racks but filled with old/too many towels, linens, quilts, etc.; "sunken" tub/shower in MBR is dangerous!; screened porch filled with "beach stuff" - swim tube, wagon, dirty cooler, beach chairs, beach umbrella, etc.; items that previous renters complained about (i.e., key to front door not functional from the outside, necessitating entry and exit from back door) not repaired even though website for property says they have been repaired; outdoor lights burned out/not working which made getting back into the house at night challenging/difficult as one had to go through the back door.
Additionally, the property is grossly overpriced compared to nicer VRBO homes in the same area.
This home should be removed from VRBO's listing until it is improved/renovated and the photos and property description on the site reflect what the property actually looks like.
We stayed here for a family reunion. It had all the necessities to make us comfortable. Plenty of towels, kitchen items and beach gear. The house is set up so we were all able to eat together. The bikes were a nice treat. We were able to ride over to the pier. This is a great house for families. The kids loved the loft!!
