About the property

6 Bedrooms With 2 Master Suites With Ocean Views; 4700 Sq. Ft.

Welcome to St. Simons Island and its iconic Round House! This true beachfront home features unobstructed 180 degree ocean views throughout, a beachfront pool and direct beach access at all tides (except for the occasional extreme full moon high tide). Tucked away at the end of a private cul-de-sac in the island's most beautiful neighborhood, this home offers serene

privacy in the ideal location - just steps from the ocean and less than a ten minute walk on the beach or down the quiet moss draped street to the historic Village. You will love the great restaurants, shops, pier, 1872 still functioning lighthouse and oceanfront Neptune Park with its spectacular swimming

pool, water park, play areas and miniature golf. Check out the video at:

You may, however, have a difficult time bringing yourself to leave this breathtaking property, especially the large deck

which is the perfect outdoor spot for enjoying, day or night, the spectacular ocean views with Jekyll Island on the horizon. A new swimming pool has just been added this year to make your stay even more enjoyable.

Ideal for large family gatherings, the dual master suites, one with a fireplace, and over 4700 square feet of living space ensure ample room for spreading out in luxurious comfort. Exotic cypress hardwood floors, heart pine stairs, hand made wood coffered ceilings, custom tiling and windows, oversized plantation shutters, commercial steel elevator, large skylight over stairwell and gourmet kitchen with high end appliances including a Sub-zero refrigerator provide the refined interior to complement the endless ocean views through the wall of windows in every room. Newly redecorated, the home offers four additional bedrooms for a total of six, a large dining room, a large great room with TV right on the ocean, a large game room with fireplace, also with ocean views, and separate big screen TV room with HBO and Showtime, DVR and DVD allowing space for both group gatherings and private relaxation. Directly to the west of the property sits the exclusive Sea Island Club and Golf Course - perfect for picturesque walks along the beach or kayaking and paddleboard excursions in the ocean.

Managed by the owners personally, we'll do everything to ensure your stay in our home is unforgettable. This will be the vacation your family will talk about for years!

Although our home is ideal for entertaining, groups larger than 16 are not allowed. No weddings, parties or student groups. Minimum age of 25 except children accompanied by their parents. Smoking is not allowed in the house or on the deck.

About David Blum

A father and son who enjoy spending time together playing golf and hanging out on the deck and by the pool taking in the beautiful ocean views.

David Blum purchased this house in 2012

Why David Blum chose St. Simons Island

Of all of the beach communities we know of in the southeast, St. Simons Island is by far the most charming and beautiful. The secluded location of this home provides the privacy for the entire family to enjoy this lovely oceanfront setting yet it is a short walk to so much to do in the Village.

What makes this house unique

We were attracted to this property by it's elegant interiors and spectacular ocean views from every room.

We love walking to the village to eat and just hang out at the pier and park.

Fantastic view and location, but...

  • 3 of 5

Management company really needs to up their game on cleanliness, replacing broken items and stocking the basic necessities.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed the house and view. I have spoken with the management company and they returned your call within half an hour but it was late Friday before Christmas Eve and they were unable to get the requested professional service done until the day after Christmas which was the departure date. The items you expected to be stocked are not provided on any of the over 100 properties they managed and I have made sure that my information document makes this perfectly clear. All broken items have been replaced but often things are broken by a recent guest and we do not find out until it is reported by a sunsequent guest.

What a view!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the round house. The first week of April. Family vacation. We had elderly parents who stayed in most of week. The views were awesome. Nothing like watching the masters golf tournament on the 65 in Samsung tv while looking out at an incredible view. The elevator was perfect for our parents. Plenty of room with 3 dens to hang out in. Thank you for a memorable week at the beach.

Perfect Long Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This fabulous ocean front home is the perfect vacation spot. We had a group of 10 and there was more than enough room for everyone to spread out. The weather was amazing and we spent the majority of our time on the deck that overlooks the ocean or walking on the beach. It is also an easy walk to the Village area where there are several places to eat (breakfast, lunch and dinner) have cocktails, shop, fish or just enjoy the scenery. We had lunch and cocktails on the porch at Brogens and enjoyed the walk back to the house. The house is very solid so you can't hear a thing once you shut your bedroom door (nice with a house full). I always bring my own sheets on vacation and did not need to put them on the bed. All of the beds are comfortable with nice soft sheets and pillows. I consider myself pretty high maintenance when it comes to a vacation rental and I absolutely LOVED this house. Owner is easy to work with and the rates or very reasonable for the home and location.

Beautiful Home, Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in the Round House for the holidays. We had an amazing time, the home is absolutely beautiful and St. Simons Island was so enjoyable to explore. The owner was so easy to work with and always available for all of our needs. Definitely plan to visit again in the future and highly recommend to other vacationers!

Amazing Trip for Large Group

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this property over a long fall weekend for the purpose of entertaining a large group of my customers. There were a total of 10 of us, we had more than enough room and there were beds to spare. Everyone was blown away by the sweeping views and natural light that filled the house. Unfortunately, the weather was a little cool the weekend we were there, so the private beach and pool could not be utilized to their full potential. If you have the opportunity to stay here in the summer, do it. The beach is perfect for peace and quiet. In addition, the location is extremely close and convenient to the square near the lighthouse. I walked down into the square every morning for coffee and some breakfast, we were also able to walk there in the evening and at night for dinner and drinks. Walking the road also provides you a view of some beautiful homes. Everything was there that we needed during our stay. The kitchen was spacious and loaded with utensils and the living room had plenty of seating with a great TV for watching football. Finally, David was a pleasure to work with. He was prompt, communicated and helped us with all of our requests. If 10 stars were an option, I would give it.
