About Clay Edwards

We are native Atlantans and have been vacationing at Sea Island for over 60 yrs. We love this place! St. Simons Island, GA is nearby with plenty of affordable eating places. This lovely resort is 300 miles from Atlanta, but we still find time to go there every month to enjoy the relaxing atmosphere. And who else can throw a party or schedule exciting events to enjoy like Sea Island Resort. Tons of activities are available for you and your family.

Clay Edwards purchased this house in 1994

Why Clay Edwards chose Coastal Georgia

We have owned this home for over 20 years. It is our family's vacation paradise and is in the IDEAL location for any activity on Sea Island. Only 2 blocks to the Cloister Hotel, Beach Club, Atlantic ocean & beach, and Sea Island Spa and Tennis Center. Ride a bicycle or walk everywhere you want to go, even to St. Simons Island. This is the cleanest and safest beach in the southeast. Our children grew up here and our daughter got married here. What a special place this is for us. Sea Island is protected with a security gatehouse with guard for your vacation privacy. Car passes are required.

What makes this house unique

We ride bicycles to everything we do while there because of our great location. The terrain is flat and no hills to climb.In fact we provide 10 adult bikes for your use.The back yard is manicured grass, private, secluded, and roomy with a shaded hammock for relaxation. A well lit, spacious terrace with chairs, umbrella table, and padded chaise lounge is available for evening events. The table with umbrella protects you from the sun or rain and is a perfect place to have a meal. Cook steaks on the Weber charcoal grille or sit by the portable, patio fire pit in the evening.You are only 2 blocks from the Cloister Hotel and Beach Club. You can see the Cloister Hotel from our driveway. There are 2 driveway entrances and covered parking. Hear the ocean in the evening. Cook in style in the newly renovated kitchen.

Sea Island, Many Great Memories

  • 5 of 5

The family stayed at this well maintained spacious home for part of Christmas Break. We had a wonderful time. The house was centrally located to the main hotel, beach resort and fitness area. The owner and his local help were very accommodating and wanted to make sure the trip went well

Beautiful Sea Island home

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend at Sea Island with our grown kids and our grandchildren. It was a very enjoyable vacation. The close proximity to the beach and the Beach Club made for an easy walk or bike ride each day. The recent kitchen remodel was well done in great style and the house layout provided relaxed living for a larger group. We will go back!

Excellent Sea Island home

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at the property and have nothing but good things to say. Everything was new and well maintained, done with good taste, and easy to use. The home is spacious with great outdoor views and the new kitchen is extraordinary. We could not think of one thing to make it better. Highly recommended.

Sea Island Shangri La

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed a long weekend in October at this cottage. It has to be the best location on Sea Island. Within walking distance of both the Beach Club and The Cloister. The cottage is impeccably maintained and beautifully furnished, yet very comfortable. I felt like I was at home. The backyard is nicely landscaped and is extremely quiet and relaxing. I sat outside on the patio each fall evening that I was there. The owner is quite accommodating and friendly. This is the perfect getaway for a weekend or week long stay and is great for families.

Sea Island stay

  • 5 of 5

The home was very clean upon arrival, with plenty of towels and instructions for the stay. The house is large with a nice patio out back. There were 6 of us, and the 5.5 bathrooms was one of the reasons we stayed here, there was lots of room. We walked to the Cloister and Beach Club (2 blocks) for dinner and activities. Couldn't be a more convenient location. Plenty of room to park multiple cars, nice garage, would stay there again.
