Property description

Our 1942 white clapboard beach house was built by a man named Strothers; you might see his name around town. It has 4 bedrooms and two full baths. There are fans throughout and windows which should be opened to let the ocean air in. There are screen doors in both the kitchen and family room and all windows downstairs have wooden blinds for privacy. My favorite spot is the screened-in porch, where many a conversation, book reading and card playing has taken place. The beach is within walking distance, as well as restaurants and the village area.

Start your day with a great walk on the beach, before the sun comes up. Then head down to the village for breakfast at Palmer's and step into some of the amazing and quaint local shops. Walk back to the house and grab a quick bite before biking down to the Neptune Pool for an afternoon of fun in the sun. Lifeguards are on duty constantly, so no need to worry about the children. Come back to the house and plop down on the couch for an afternoon movie or game of cards or stroll upstairs for a much needed nap. It's 4:00 and everyone is ready for a treat, so bike down to the village area and try out the new St. Simon's Sweet's Shop and have a chocolate covered marshmallow or scoop of rocky road ice cream. Evening is coming and you want some great seafood. Try Mullet Bay or Barbara Jean's for the best crab cakes around. After dinner, stroll down to the pier and see what's catchin. The sun is going down and it's time to head back to the house. Another hard day on the island.. someone's gotta do it.

Location

St. Simons has recently opened a new pool area, within walking distance from our beach house. Lifeguards are on duty at all times and there is a great poolside cafe where you can grab a snack, ice cream or lunch.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Welcome to our website. I hope you will get a full flavor of what life is like on our sweet island called St. Simons. My husband Russ and I have 3 amazing children under 14 and have called Marietta, GA home for 19 years. Six years ago, we decided to camp in Brunswick. During that trip we made a drive over the causeway, a drive that would begin this great adventure of later owning our charming old 1942 beach house. We chose the south island area because we wanted something different than what we have in Atlanta. We wanted to walk to everything and feel like we had stepped back in time. If you are looking for a new, pottery barn style home, keep looking but if you are looking for a place to relax with your friends, this is your stop. I hope you enjoy our little escape as much as we have. Check out our FB page, under links for more photos and daily updates on the island.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
This home is one of the original clapboard beach houses on the island. Many of our guests have commented on the charm, coziness and warmth that it brings to their visit. The house is also on south island, so you can walk to the village, shopping and fishing pier within seven minutes. This house often accomodates multiple families at one time that are trying to watch their pennies and not eat out for every meal; hence the wonderful large kitchen. We have a table in the kitchen that seats four, a picnic table in the dining room that can seat six and then wooden trays that can be used for several more folks on the porch. If you are looking for a new, pottery barn style home, keep looking, but if you want a wonderful place to kick back and relax with good friends, this is your stop. Oh, and don't forget to bring your furry friend.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
St. Simon's Island has a population of 16,000, two grocery stores, a movie theatre and some of the best BBQ around. One of the perks of small island living is the low crime rate. I asked the lovely lady, from whom we purchased the property, how the crime was. Her reply, 'I lock the door on my way to Vermont for the summer.' Enough said.
