                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1998

                  About the owner: I immediately fell in love with my cottage and the live oaks it's nestled under - I always loved the beach, but having both trees and the water, as well as the history in the area, this was the perfect place. There is so much to do on the island and the surrounding coastal area. I love the fact that the pier/village is so close and to be able to walk to the water anytime is wonderful. It's amazing when there is a full moon shining on the water. I have my favorite restaurants and coffee shop where I always run into someone I know or will know better soon.

                  Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                  I had been visiting St Simons since the early 80's and fell in love with my cottage at first sight. I was riding my bike with my niece and nephew from our base at the Sea Gate Inn and there it was, nestled under these beautiful huge live oaks. I am always working on making it better each year.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  Being able to walk to the beach anytime is great. Having the tide roll in and out adds such interest. I enjoy riding my bike, sitting under the oaks, walking my dog and visiting with friends and neighbors. I go to my favorite restaurants in the village, including hanging out at the neighborhood coffee shop/wine bar. I just enjoy the relaxing atmosphere and the beauty of the coast.
