The post office is directly across the street from the complex gate.

I have provided complimentary post cards, on the desk. Mail some away,to all your friends

Escape to the screened-in porch and rock the afternoon away on the 2 Antique Wrought Iron Rockers, cool off with a chilled wine or cocktail. Outside fan cools you off on those hot Georgia nights.(see floor plan photo)

About Barbara Pole

I dabble in art and loved my photography career.

I have worked art shows and also critique.

My husband is a sales consultant to the telephone industry. We have 4 kids & 2 grandkids.

What drew us to SSI was our first visit to Jekyll in 1998. We watched the Sidney Lainer Bridge being built an engineering marvel) and laugh at the times we waited for the old draw bridge to open. My husband said that's how its done... SLOW. We saw some changes but love the building code (no high-rises).

There have been many improvements to SSI, one of the best being, NEPTUNE PARK in the village. A well thought out master plan. We watched it being built in Feb 2009. A NEW Water Wonderland for all ages. It features 3 connecting pools with a kids water park, playground, mini-golf and water aerobics.

What a view overlooking the Atlantic Ocean & Jekyll Island!

Please be assured your stay at our place is well worth the modest cost.

I am only a email/phone call away to answer ANY questions you have.

Barbara Pole purchased this condo in 2004

Why Barbara Pole chose St. Simons Island

We wanted a place we were able to drive or fly to easily. 45 mins. north of Jacksonville Airport (JAX) 20 mins to Glynco airport,(BQK) 1hour south of Savannah airport (SAV) . We live on Long Island enjoy the Long Island Sound and Atlantic. SSI is all we were looking for on the coast, a high education and low crime rate.

I have met people from all over the world who retire and bring their skills from art to theater to gardening. Their privacy is highly respected.

True Southern Hospitality and the wonderful laid back experience will be a delight to you and your family.

There are also many DAY TRIPS:

For a historic city: SAVANNAH is 1 hr north.

For the ROMANTIC: Jekyll Island is 15 mins away. Book the horse & buggy ride

For the NATURALIST: Little SSI 10 mins by ferry.

For the GAMBLER: Emerald Princess cruise. Next to the Sidney Lainer Bridge $$

The 4 mile causeway drive from the mainland is breathtaking!!

What makes this condo unique

POOL(heated March 1st) GATED, Immaculate Complex

Great Mid Island Location Easy On & Off the Island.

Weddings 2016 Combine both properties for 6 Brs and 5 Baths. Please call me for additional information.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Another shorten review left in my guest book,

" Our family had a wonderful & memorable vacation on St Simons!

This was the first time to the island but wont be our last. The condo is absolutely delightful. You have a great eye for decorating and provided everything we needed.

The beds are very comfortable, too.

A special thanks for allowing us to see your home on Demere- we loved it!

If we ever want to rent a house here,that would definitely be the place."

Terrific condo in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have enjoyed our month more anywhere! This condo is beautifully provisioned, clean and very well located within walking distance to Redfern Village (lots of shops), Southern Soul(excellent barbecue), and St. Williams (an easy walk to Mass - beautiful service!) In spite of its proximity to business, etc. it was very quiet. We enjoyed our coffee every morning on the screened in porch and a cocktail there in the afternoon. Highly recommend!!!!!!!

Being the first time on St. Simons, the owner also took the time to inform of us of the various restaurants and sights. She was extremely helpful and easy to work with. We highly recommend this condo to anyone.

Excellent vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful trip to St. Simons and it was made more wonderful by staying in this fantastic condo! The condo was very clean and comfortable. It was actually more roomy than we imagined! The owner was extremely helpful with any questions we had. She was especially gracious during a late night phone call because we couldn't get the gate code to work! We will definitely return to this condo!

Perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

This is our first time to St. Simons Island and we love it. What a lucky shot to pick the best location. This condo is comfortable, well maintained, well appointed and convenient to everything. The beach is within biking distance, the pool is beautiful and a fitness room is available. So convenient to have a washer and dryer in the unit as well. Quiet end unit. Parking right outside of the door. Barbara was very accommodating with our two little furry children that travel with us. Very pleased with the condo, felt like home immediately. We will definitely be back - next time for 2 weeks!

Beautiful Condo on a Beautiful Island

  • 5 of 5

This was my first visit to St. Simons Island, and I couldn't have chosen a better place for my daughter, granddaughter and me to stay! Everything about the condo was just as the pictures and overview described. It had everything we needed for our week-long stay and more. The pool was heated and well maintained, and only a few steps away. Parking was right outside our door, bike rentals just next door, we were a short walk from many wonderful shops and restaurants, and just a short ride to a beautiful beach.

Barbara was so helpful in providing us with information about places to go, especially those with my granddaughter in mind. It was our first visit to SSI and Barnes Plantation, but will not be our last.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location, close to shopping, restaurants and beaches, plus a nice heated pool. The condo is spacious with designer touches and ultra comfortable beds. The owner is very accommodating and knowledgeable about the area. Take her tips about places to eat and visit. Loved "Southern Soul" for barbeque and Tibi for designer, but affordable shopping. Good coffee ambiance in "Wake up coffee". St. Simmons is magical. Will be back!
