Tree Top condo description

“Marsh View” is located on Ocean Boulevard. Only steps away to the best beach on the island. This 3 story condominium, beautifully nestled among some of the oldest, most beautiful and protected live oak trees in the state, overlooks one of the famous and historic “Marshes of Glynn.” Relax at the end of each day by enjoying the most beautiful sunsets from the living area, large patio, and master bedroom balcony.

From your private parking spaces directly in front of the front door, you will feel that you are entering a lovely and inviting tree house. On this ground level are two bedrooms and a connecting bath room and dressing area. One bedroom has an entrance to a very large patio which is privacy fenced and graced with the charm and beauty of a huge live oak. The other bedroom overlooks the marsh. Both bedrooms have large closets, queen beds and bestow a feeling of comfort and cheer.

As you ascend the open stair case to the 2nd floor, you will see the large beautiful live oaks from every window. This is the spacious and open family gathering place. A large fully equipped kitchen is on the back side of this living area. There you will find every thing for your gourmet cooking needs. There are lovely serving pieces, plenty of silver and plates, new appliances, and a wonderful serving bar which separates the kitchen from the eating area.

Off the kitchen, is a nice size laundry room and a separate half bath. The European antique pine dining table comfortably seats 6 adults. The living room is bright and inviting with plenty of seating area and a large TV/ Cable/DVD/VHS. The entire front wall is windows that overlook the marsh.

As you leave this level by way of another open stair case ascending to the top of this tree house, you enter the master suite. There is a sitting area, queen size bed, plenty of storage and a large dressing area and bath. There is a large sliding glass door covering one wall which leads to the balcony over looking the marsh . . . a beautiful and peaceful way to start each day as you sit and enjoy your morning coffee in the tree tops. Another TV/Cable/ VCR is located in this suite.

While we rent our “Marsh View” condo, it is also our retreat. We have tried to serve your every need and to make your stay comfortable. There are plenty of bright clean towels and linens. A children’s library, and video library, games and books are yours to enjoy while you are there. A large and very nice gas grill is located on the patio.

The beach is beyond the patio; a quick and easy walk. There is a nice boardwalk for easy access for rolling beach carts, strollers, etc. This particular area of the beach never is lost to the tides and is great during the very lowest tide.

From “Marsh View” in a matter of minutes you can walk on a sidewalk along the marsh to 4 of the most popular restaurants on the Island. Located in that area also is Ocean Motion which has kayak and bike rentals along with any other items you need for the beach. Or stroll on the beach in the early morning to the King and Prince Hotel for a cup of Starbuck’s coffee.

The intriguing Village of St. Simons is a short bike trip away. There you will find many more restaurants, pubs, gift and clothing shops, the pier, and a putt - putt course. New to the village this year is a huge resort style swimming pool and children's playground and park. In the park, you will find picnic tables and grills. The pool has permanent umbrellas and chaise lounges. The children's area of the pool is like a water park. All of this is right on the ocean beside the historic St. Simons Lighthouse and open to the public everyday from 1:00-8:00. While on this very historical island please visit our historic landmarks Fort Frederica, Bloody Marsh, The Lighthouse, and Christ Church. You will find our island very bike and walking friendly. There are sidewalks throughout the entire island.

We love our “Marsh View” and we love our island. We would love to share these with you. Please call or email with any questions you may have.

Sorry NO PETS and Please NO SMOKING. This is s smoke free environment.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2005

              About the owner: Please meet Claudia and Mac Perkins, the owners of 'Marsh View.' Claudia is a retired school teacher and Mac is a community banker. They reside in Thomaston, Georgia. After purchasing Marsh View in 2005, they made some major renovations and totally repainted and redecorated. They are proud to present this property for your home away from home.

              Why the Owner Chose Tree Top:
              We have always loved coming to St. Simons Island. It is a very easy drive from metropolitan Atlanta. You have a choice of taking the interstate highways all the way or traveling the back country roads going through the picturesque small Georgia towns. The island is a small town family community not a highway of individual developments and motels. There are an abundance of wonderful places to shop and fabulous restaurants to meet your culinary needs.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              We had rented several condominiums prior to purchasing ours. We have two grown children, and we especially enjoyed the spaciousness and privacy of the 'Tree Top' Condominium floor plan. We also enjoy spending a large portion of the day on the beach playing bocce ball, swimming, walking, visiting, and picnicking. It was important to us to be in this particular area of the island, very close to a beach that is nice during both high tide and low tide. There is no beach during high tide in most areas and in some areas there is no water close by for swimming and floating during the low tide.
