About the property

St. Simons Island, Georgia

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!

The bomb! Delivered as promised. Superb get-away to check out St. Simon Island.

  • 5 of 5

Project team and crew completed job at FLETC in one week and deserved a great break. Definitely funky and different, but perfect escape for a short celebration. Pictures did justice to the property and amenities at hand. The bedrooms, linens and pillows, loft area, and the comfy living room, patio, and enclosed sun room with beach accessories were plentiful. Needed more time. Quiet, relaxing, and off the beaten path and away from crowds. We brought way too much food, and had to throw in a BBQ pit for use by the Texas crowd for chicken and ribs, but all the kitchen cooking accessories necessary and supplies were easily provided. Lots of towels, and outside chairs, and the bikes were a great way to explore the surroundings and beaches. As previously stated, the Banana House ROCKS!

Many thanks, Jan and the Gang

Very homey and quaint. Comfortable with all that you would need.

  • 4 of 5

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...

Banana House Rules!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Favorite house on SSI

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.

FIRST visit to Saint Simons and the Georgia Islands as a whole.

  • 5 of 5

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~! !
