Overview

About the property

The front porch with the rocking chairs and swings, you will feel relaxed.

From the moment you step onto the front porch with the rocking chairs and swings, you will feel relaxed and at home. With 5 bedrooms and 4.5 baths this home is ideal for a large family. This home is professionally decorated and exquisitely furnished. It certainly not your typical rental home! No expense was spared in preparing this home designed by world famous architect, Keith Summerhour , for rental!

The gourmet kitchen features a large island that comfortably seats 8-10. It has a wine fridge as well as a vegetable sink. It has both a high end stainless refrigerator as well as a separate freezer, separated by custom stainless counter tops with a oversized stainless sink. The gourmet gas stove features six burners and double ovens.

This custom home features an open floor plan with a comfortable dining room and large den adjoining the gourmet kitchen.

The home features multiple living and gathering areas. There is a screened in porch that runs almost the length of the home. With a large den/ media room on the second level, this home provides plenty of gathering or escape space! The fenced in back yard features a heated private pool, green egg and large gas grill.

This custom home is within easy walking distance of the St. Simons Island village and pier area. Walk or bike to the Island’s unique shops and restaurants.

Upon entering the home, guests are greeted by a grand foyer with magnificent high ceilings, coastal colors. The cheerful, coastal decor continues as you pass thru the open archway into the large open living area designed to seat at least eight comfortably around the fireplace. Adjacent to living area, the kitchen is a chef’s dream with huge center island, granite countertops, gas range and stainless appliances.

The dining area is just off the kitchen with windows overlooking the screened porch and backyard swimming pool—you’ll feel like you are dining outside. The screened porch spans the back of the house and provides a great view of the private pool. In the winter months you can enjoy a fire from the porch or the living room from the double-sided fireplace.

On the main level of the home are three bedrooms each with an en suite bath. The bedrooms are comfortable and beautifully decorated.

The upper level is a great spot for kids with a large living/play area. One bedroom has a king and two twin beds. The adjacent bedroom features four twin beds.

With a non-refundable $150 pet fee, pets under 35 pounds are permitted in this vacation rental home. This home sleeps 15 in beds....3 sofas if needed!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Beautiful home!!! So upscale and beautifully decorated. Love the proximity to the village and beach as well as all the restaurants and grocery stores. It is a great place for a large group. If you love to cook then it is a gourmet dream. If you don't then walk five minutes to some of the best restaurants around. So nice to really not need a car. We biked or walked all around and even biked to the grocery store. If you like staying in a five star hotel then this is the house for you as it is five star in every way, from the décor to the furnishings. My family will definitely be back!! The upstairs, with its media room feel, was the perfect getaway for the teenagers and the bedrooms on the main level were like having private suites. All our families could say was awesome and we don't want to leave.

Perfect destination for our family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We recently had a 4 night stay here with another family. We both have small children and the location and layout of the home could not have been more perfect for our group. We loved every detail from the swinging beds on the porch, the beautiful furnishings throughout the home and the fun fenced in back yard complete with nice lounge chairs and in ground pool. Traveling with young kids is often tough but we truly felt relaxed in this gorgeous retreat. We hope to return next year.

I will add that we originally planned to stay near the beach and our plans fell through and i couldn't have been happier with how things turned out. The ability to walk into town within 5 minute, or to the local park (about 100 yards away) were priceless!

It was our first time on St. Simon's and definitely won't be our last!

Pricey and worn!

  • 2 of 5

We have stayed here three summers now. Unfortunately, we were disappointed this time. The house has become too pricey for the quality we expected. The carpets and furniture are soiled, pool was cloudy, some mattresses are worn out, master bath sink does not have a stopper, trash bin door at kitchen island does not close, among other things. It's time to put some money into property maintenance!

Owner's Response: This house, has been from the beginning and remains a lovely home that was professionally decorated and exquisitely furnished. Just this season five new rugs have been added. The screened in porch, which many guests complained was too hot, was converted into a glassed in sunroom. It now has its own heat and air zone so the guests can set the temperature to what is comfortable for them. This change allows you to just sit in the air-conditioning and watch the kiddos play in the pool. The interior designer for the home also ordered two new custom living room chairs, as the others were showing signs of wear. As far as a problem...with the cabinet that holds the trashcan… My repair man could see no problem. We had no idea there was a sink stopper missing or it would have been replaced immediately, as it has been now. The guest brought no problems to our attention while he was there. If he had, our handyman would have been there within two hours. As far as the complaint of stained furniture, there are watermarks on the upholstered dining room chairs. This is the result of people sitting there after coming in from the swimming pool. They are watermarks not food stains. That situation will be addressed at the end of the season. As previously stated, this is an exceptional home. It has a gourmet kitchen, with a six burner double oven gas stove. It has a huge built-in refrigerator at one end of the stainless steel counter and a huge refrigerator on the other end. One of the guests a couple weeks ago told me she prepared a meal for 20 people and had other people in her family, that weren't staying there, come for a meal. She said it was no problem to feed everybody the kitchen was perfect. With the addition of the glassed in porch there are actually three dens now. This allows great separate conversation areas. It also has five bedrooms. Comparisons have made to similar homes that sleep the same number of people, in a desirable area, and our prices are right in line with other homes sleeping this many people. This guest was disgruntled because he told me personally he has spent $15,000 reserving this home for three years. I understand it can be expensive to rent at the beach, however I have spent 15,000 for one week to rent in Vail Colorado for Christmas. As the old saying goes, you get what you pay for. In this house we believe you get the best! We will continue to strive to make it the best house it can be! Guests are our priority!

Best Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect for a family get together. We had 14 guests and the home was perfect for entertaining them. Everyone in our party couldn’t say enough good about our vacation. I want to compliment the owner as there was an issue with the coffee pot and they replaced it immediately. That was appreciated by everyone. We will be back for sure.

Gorgeous house, super friendly owners, relaxing backyard

  • 5 of 5

This house is truly stunning. To make it even better, the owners are the friendliest, most helpful people I have ever rented a house from. They were very responsive to my needs and so kind to my large group. The house itself is even better than the pictures— huge ceilings, high quality furniture, beautiful finishes. There was plenty of space for my group of 15 people staying over a long weekend. We loved hanging out on the enclosed porch, on the swing beds out front, and in the refreshing pool. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to cook meals for a large group. The master bedroom has the most amazing mirror I have ever seen, and the master bathroom tub is the perfect place for a soak. I loved the large number of bathrooms — no one was ever waiting. I can not recommend this house enthusiastically enough; I felt privileged to spend time in this immaculate home.

The perfect setting for family fun!

  • 5 of 5

We just enjoyed 4 nights with 12 people (including 2 little ones). This home is lovely for the adults and easy for kids. We spent time lazing in the pool, relaxing on the sun porch and cooking together. It was perfect for us. The location was walkable to downtown (for most of us). Super convenient quick drives to everything. We would definitely stay here again...and are talking about making it an annual thing.
