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, plus 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 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 always have to eat at Barbara Jeans to get the SheCrab soup, and seafood is great at so many of the restaurants on the island, many very close to the cottage. I enjoy just hanging out in my little neighborhood walking my two shih zus or riding my bike to the King & Prince, East Beach and the Pier/Village. I have also kayaked in the marsh and visited all the museums over the years.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
I had been visiting St Simons since the early 80's and fell in love at first sight with the island. I also knew my cottage was the one for me when I first saw it. I was riding my bike with my niece and nephew from our base at the Sea Gate Inn and there it was. I didn't even look at any other properties. It's a work in progress and I love being able to share it with others.

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 dogs and walking on the beach. It's also so nice to be able to walk to the King & Prince and the Pier/Village area. The relaxing atmosphere and the beauty of the Golden Isles makes St Simons Island one of the top destinations in the country. In fact, in 2015 it was just voted one of the Top 20 Best Small Towns to Visit, Smithsonian Magagzine.
