About the owner: Hello, we are the Ward's! We have two grown daughters who are both married with children. Kimberly lives in Macon Ga with her husband Wade and daughter Banks and Jennifer resides in Birmingham AL with her husband Alan and twins, Emy and Mac. We live in Macon where I was raised and where we raised our children. Both of our children are graduates from UGA and we are full fledged Bulldog fans!
Why the Owner Chose Cottages at Live Oak Place: Growing up in Macon GA, we vacationed in St. Simons Island our whole lives. My mother lived on the island for many years and was a real estate broker with Parker & Kaufman. St. Simons Island has always been a home away from home for our family and we have always dreamed of owning our own home on the island.
The first time we laid our eyes on the Cottages at Live Oak, we knew this was the home for our growing family! Our grandchildren love their visits to SSI, just as our children did and the memories we have already created are irreplaceable!
The pool and hot tub were a must! As much as we all enjoy days at the beach, it is nice having the option of late afternoon swims and relaxing in the heated whirlpool. The location of 16 Live Oak could not be more perfect. We walk to the village for breakfast in the mornings and we walk to the pier in the evenings. The village area is our family's favorite place! It's a great place to walk in and out of quaint shops, dine at family owned restaurants, eat the best ice cream and sweets and our family favorite, walking on the pier and watching families crabbing or fishing. The views of Jekyll and Cumberland Island are beautiful from the pier and you always see amazing wildlife!
The beach is within walking distance of our cottage or makes for a great bike ride for sight seeing along the way! Our favorite part of the beach is East Beach. Many times because of the unique tides the island is known for, there are large sandbars right off of the shore or tidal pools on the beach. Our grandchildren will spend all day in the tidal pools chasing small fish and collecting sand dollars!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: The design of the home is very open with vaulted ceilings allowing for families to gather comfortably.
The downstairs expansive master bedroom and reading nook, allows for privacy and comfort. We invested in a Sterns & Foster pillow top mattress, which sleeps wonderfully! All the bedrooms have custom linens, white matelasse's and down pillows. The kitchen is fully equipped with anything you could ever need. We have a collection of coastal inspired serving pieces that really make you feel at home!
The location of the home is unbeatable! The pool, whirlpool, front porch area and tasteful furnishings are a bonus for anyone on vacation!
