This estate has a wonderful lay out. There is a formal living room that opens into twin patios overlooking a beautiful spring fed pond and miles of lush marsh.

Barron’s named Sea Island #1 on their list of “Best Places for a Second Home'. While its beauty and range of lifestyles and luxury, as well as its status as a “power alley” of influential residents, were noted, Sea Island was rated highest for its value. Outside magazine’s Adventure Advisor chose St. Simons Island as a “Best Fall Beach Escape” because our sandy beaches are largely employ in the off season while temperatures are sill in the 70s, and fishing, surfing, and biking are all possible. National Geographic Traveller included the Georgia Sea Islands, as its “99 Top Rated Places”. Speaking of golf, this is the perfect base for attending the PGA’s McGladrey Classic golf tournament held at Sea Island's fabled Seaside golf course.

Very good but noticed maintenance issues

  • 4 of 5

Garbage pick up info listed on wrong day in guest book, mildew on inside of Windows, grill needs a new burner, outlet in master bath does not work as did a few other outlets, left faucet in kitchen disposal sink comes off, multi-speed bike needs tune up. Otherwise accommodations were very nice and the house was well supplied. We loved having the bikes to use and the access to the beach was wonderful. It would have been nice to know that beach towels were provided. We brought our own because earlier generic info said they weren't. Our names were not listed at the front gate on arrival and we had difficulty getting the other families and our photographer listed. We were not impressed with that service and you might want to pass that on to the Cloister's.

Great location! Wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5

The house was great!! Elegantly decorated with spacious rooms just as described. The entertainment wing was fantastic, both for the young and old kids. It is fully furnished, comfortable and very clean. The beach is only steps away and the beach club is just a few blocks down. The landscaping is beautiful and the patios were great for relaxing. Well worth the price and will definitely return for a longer stay.

Wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had an exceptional time staying in this beautiful Sea Island cottage! The home is huge with many different sleeping and living areas that accommodate different families and generations - meaning we had separate en suite bedrooms for 3 couples, a bunk bedroom for younger kids, and an entirely separate wing for the teens with bedroom, bath, kitchenette, and great gameroom. This Floorplan allows everyone space and is great for multiple families with kids. The beach is a short 2 minute walk across the street and the Beach club and Cloister are only a few blocks away. Wonderful rand relaxing vacation!!

Mid-Year Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Our family was looking for a destination that would be easily accessible for travelers from Atlanta, Manhattan and Milwaukee. Sea Island fit the bill. We had vacationed on Kiawah Island several times, but SI was perfect for our family at this time. There were 10 of us ranging in age from 4 to 60+. The house was perfect with plenty of room for privacy. The game room was a big plus, as we all love to play pool and ping pong. The golf, pool and beach facilities were ideal for every age and the restaurants, lovely! We have wonderful memories of our visit to Sea Island and plan to return at the same time next year.

Honeymoon to remember

  • 5 of 5

My now wife and I decided on a destination beach wedding and then followed it up with a stay at this house. Since we have 3 teenagers, We decided to bring them with us. I have to say, this house is amazing! We could not have asked for more. The master bedroom was so nice; and what a comfortable bed. The his and hers bathrooms off the master was a nice touch. The owner has also just put in a new state of the art heating/cooling system on that side of the house. The temperature while we were there was in the mid 70s and gorgeous during the day so we were able to open up many of the doors in the open layout and let the outside air in throughout the house. I had never seen a layout like this and it was amazing how well the air circulates. The kitchen is a cook's dream. It has a huge island, multiple sinks, big fridge, etc. Everything you could ask for. All the flowers, bushes, etc were also blooming while we were there and it made everything so colorful. The grounds are very well kept. There is even a small (and very timid) alligator out back. We had a great time going out there and just watching him. While we were there, we also took adavantage of the walking paths, the main resort, and all the amenities of Sea Island. It was truly a fantastic experience and may become a yearly thing for us in this house. I miss it already.
