Tour the Sister Islands

Georgia is known for its spectacular islands in the state's southeast section. They are affectionately known as the Golden Isles. Next in popularity to Jekyll Island is nearby St. Simons Island. Trips contain stops at the lighthouse museum and rides on the trolley. Brunswick offers great fishing and crabbing for live broils. A plethora of tidal pools filled with collectible shells provide a bird’s eye view of dolphins playing in the ocean. Regardless of the island destination, visiting a pier is an opportunity to see glorious sunrises and sunsets.

This is a wonderland of endangered species including indigo snakes, gopher tortoises, and others. Rent a canoe for an up close and personal adventure.
  • Cumberland Island National Seashore: Catch a ferry to this jewel with picturesque views of the Atlantic Ocean. Walk the shores looking for pre-historic shark teeth. This is a complete off-the-grid experience for only 300 visitors at any given time. While there are several campsites, only one has facilities with running water and cold showers. Since there are no stores, visitors must bring their own provisions.

  • Summer Waves: There are 11 acres of rides and miniature golf. Start the visit at the Turtle Creek Lazy River before hitting the Frantic Atlantic Wave Pool.

After a day of hitting the fairways, sip the renowned label of the same name in Merlot and several others.

Plenty of room for everyone, hot tub was fun, and upstairs game room and deck was great for hanging out. Many upgrades to the outside and inside common areas of house, but bedrooms and baths could use some also. Overall, very fun place to stay. Working with Teddy was a pleasure!

Woods, gazebo, spacious yard (with deer in the morning!), just a delight. Inside, three floors, basement has plenty of activities (table tennis, pool table, hot tub), main floor a tv and media collection, lots of room to hang out in, and upstairs two bedrooms. A very comfy home to say the least. It's a little trip to town, but nothing outrageous. The perfect location to getaway and relax! Also Rick was an absolute pleasure to talk with when it came to renting. I would strongly recommend this property!

We used the firepit day and night :) loved how comfortable the outdoor furniture were-including the two relaxing hammocks. Indoors was perfect ,furniture wise it was comfortable and clean (what you see is what you get). Although the AC worked perfectly -we didnt need it at all (temp drops up there in evening).We really enjoyed cooking meals in dianas kitchen.The kitchen had everything you need to cook and entertain--- there was a selection of spices, condiments-which i thought it was great idea in case one forgets to pack it. oh and diana was great at responding back quickly when i had question prior to my arrival and during the stay. We definitely see ourselves returning back :) Thank you!!!
