About Cathy Cox-Brakefield

We have lived in the Atlanta area and the North Georgia mountains for all of our twenty three years of married life. We are natives of the Virginia/DC area and North Georgia. We love our North Georgia mountain home, but love to travel and get away.

Cathy Cox-Brakefield purchased this condo in 2008

Why Cathy Cox-Brakefield chose Coastal Georgia

We began travelling to the Georgia coast at least once a year for business about fifteen years ago. We love the island ambience and the rich history of the area. St. Simons has an abundance of restaurants and activities without all the traffic and hassle of other beach areas. We found our condo and fell in love after looking at many properties all over the island. We love the golf courses at Sea Palms and just walking in the quiet Sea Palms neighborhood. We can also bike to restaurants or the beach with ease on the island trail system.

What makes this condo unique

While other condos might be a bit closer to the beach, we find that the quiet and privacy of our neighborhood outweighs the proximity. We can easily drive to the beach or the Pier Village (or bike) but can come home to our lovely private home looking out into the trees instead of onto the property next door. The Sea Palms West course is conveniently adjacent to the neighborhood, with a walkable and beautiful nine-hole layout. The Sea Palms Fitness Center, a pool, and tennis courts are just across the parking lot. Just across Frederica Road is the main Sea Palms Resort and Conference Center, where a bar, restaurant, pool, and eighteen-hole golf course are located. The ruins of Fort Fredrica and the beautiful Christ Church are just up the road, for history buffs and explorers. Day trips to the other Georgia Coastal islands are highly recommended, especially Jekyll Island, just a short drive away, where you can visit the Millionaires Cottages built by American tycoons in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century as winter getaways. Jekyll also offers abundant golf on public courses and beautiful public beaches, along with a sea turtle exhibit and a water park. You may never want to leave!

Our family was able to enjoy all the amenities offered at Sea Palms. The close proximity to shopping, restaurants, and the beach made for a restful vacation. I would recommend this property to my friends and family.

Lovely and comfortable condo for family and pets!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our 7 night stay in this wonderful 1st floor condo. The neighborhood was quiet and in a beautiful shaded setting. It has a nice large pool within easy walking distance. The owners are friendly and very easy to work with. We hope to return next year!

Enjoyable stay.

  • 4 of 5

We had lots of room and a very relaxing stay. The layout of the two bedrooms with king-size beds gave separation so that one couple could sleep without being disturbed by others who were awake early. Also liked having the sun room to spread out. We stayed nine days so could have used a little more Tupperware and forks so we didn't have to run the dishwasher so often, but besides that, everything was there that we needed. The pool was nice and not crowded. Kathy was very accommodating and we loved dealing with her. I would definitely stay there again in the future.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay. I will definitely supplement the forks and storage containers next time I am there. We hope you will come back to us again.

Lovely condo!

I stayed in this condo for two weeks prior to closing on my condo. It was well stocked, accessible to anything you could want including the beach. Would recommend this to everyone.

Car: recommended

Fort Frederica and Christ Church (both heavily influenced by John Wesley, the founder of Methodism) are within minutes of our condo. East Beach is a short drive away with an abudance of sports rentals and excursions both on the ocean side of the island and in the marshes on the inland side. Jekyll Island, the private winter retreat of American's millionaire families such as the Cranes, Goodyears, and Rockefellers, is a short drive away and worth a visit. The view from the bridge to Jekyll of the marshes and islands is spectacular.
