  • Perfect Family Vacation Place

    "Heaven on Eighth is "justly" named! Getting our 3 children (with spouses and grandchild), who are scattered across southeastern US, for a peaceful week together was heaven! This home was decorated beautifully with original artwork, and the common areas (family room and dining room) were spacious enough for all of us to be together for meals and just lounging! The view of the marsh from the huge shuttered windows was breathtaking and always changing with the tide. The location was perfect! Off the beaten path, but a bike ride away from restaurants, shops, the beach, and the Maritime Center. Definitely a place we'll want to return to every September!"

  • Spacious, Comfortable, Clean

    "I reserved this home for a "girls getaway" for six ladies and we were all very pleased with our accommodations. Upon arrival we found the home to be very clean and spacious. Linens are provided and were plentiful. The kitchen both upstairs and downstairs were full size and had ice makers. We all took showers/baths and had plenty of hot water. There are five fireplaces, however, none of them are currently operational. As stated by other reviewers previously, the two bedrooms facing the front of the home are not very dark at night due to the bay windows, street lights and thinner blinds. There were televisions in all the bedrooms as well as in the living room downstairs and all were functional. Although there is parking off-street in the back of the home, it is a bit narrow and flanked by a brick wall located on a very narrow street/alley. If you have an oversized vehicle like a Suburban or extended cab/bed truck, you will most likely need to park on the street in front of the home where there is sufficient space. Christine was EXTREMELY professional and helpful. When I arrived home (we live about 4 hours from Savannah), I had a message on my telephone from Christine stating a cell phone and charger had been found. After speaking with her, she graciously volunteered to mail these items to me. Thank you Christine for your "Southern Hospitality"."

  • Fantastic house, tons of space, perfect pool!

    "Our family stayed here for a week and we all agreed it was fantastic! Amazing! We had 7 adults and 9 young kids. Double Bogey had plenty of space for us to spread out in. It was luxurious to have room for the kids to be loud in one area and still have a quiet space for reading somewhere else. We loved the different areas for sitting, the roof deck, and the pool was big enough for all the kids and a few adults to swim at once. The main house is beautiful and well decorated. The kitchen was great to cook in. The guest house was not quite as nice, but suited us great with all the kids. The walk to the beach is not too far, even with little 3 year olds. It is a great value for the price. We would definitely rent it again and recommend it for a large group. We could not have found a better place for our family vacation!"

  • Very Comfortable

    "My husband, children and grandchildren had an excellent time at the Fun Beach Bungalow. It had everything we needed. It was as described and the contact person was very helpful. My grandchildren especially enjoyed the game room after we had to leave the beach due to a thunderstorm the first day. I will make the observation (Beth told me so in advance),that the bedrooms and full bathrooms are upstairs so you should take this into consideration if you have mobility problems. However, there are comfortable couches to sleep on downstairs and a half bath. This is where my daughter who recently had knee surgery slept. It worked out fine since she only had to go up the stairs once a day to shower and the rest of us hung out with her down there until bedtime anyway. I would rent this place again."

Coastal Travel Tips

Coastal Georgia is characterized by the local savannahs, wiregrass, dunes and rivers which end their journey in the Atlantic Ocean. With delightful towns, barrier islands, history, culture, and the arts, a vacation in Coastal Georgia is bound to offer total relaxation and pleasure. Offering great scenic drives through small communities, visitors can discover a host of places to explore, each with their own character. The area has some excellent dining options with something to suit all budgets and tastes.

Three Great Reasons to Choose Coastal Georgia Vacation Rentals

Renting a furnished apartment or vacation rental for the first time may be a little strange but once experienced, most visitors are hooked for life. Economically, vacation homes make good sense, especially if there are more than two in the party. You can share a vacation home with family and friends, and the savings compared with a hotel room are considerable, particularly out of peak season. Another advantage is flexibility. You can sleep in; eat what you like when you like and even as a family, you can each do your own thing. With separate rooms and multiple TVs, you can stay home if you want to and go to bed at different times, unlike sharing a room in a hotel. Finally, vacation rentals are always well equipped. Whether you want a dishwasher or microwave, hot tub or just a comfortable sofa to curl up on, a vacation rental will exceed all your expectations.

Coastal Georgia Rental Homes Suit all Ages!

The endless beaches which grace the area around Tybee Island vacation rentals and St Simon’s are perfect for family vacations, with plenty to see and do. The resorts are fairly quiet and some areas off-the-beaten track are perfect retreats for those who want a quiet vacation walking, fishing and enjoying Georgia’s natural beauty and wildlife. Spring and fall are the perfect seasons for older couples to take advantage of the pleasant weather and off-peak prices. Those looking for a romantic break will also enjoy this idyllic area.

Things to see and do Around Coastal Georgia

The Georgia coastline offers deserted beaches for walking, paved tracks and quiet roads for cycling, rivers for fishing, canoeing and kayaking, charming museums and historic architecture. It is a nature-lover’s paradise, especially for spotting coastal birds. Tennis, golf, boating and numerous watersports can all be enjoyed here. In short, you can be as active or as idle as you want to be.

Neighborhoods to Visit by Your Coastal Georgia Lodging

The most popular towns along Coastal Georgia include Brunswick, St Simon’s Island, Jekyll Island with its historic district centered on the Jekyll Island Club Hotel, St Mary’s and Darien.

Savannah was the first state capital of Georgia and consequently has a fine inheritance of colonial architecture. The delightful historical district seems to have more than its share of historic homes and churches, set around elegant tree-shaded squares. A guided walk of this city will reward visitors with a host of interesting sights and snippets of information from the knowledgeable local guides.

In contrast, St Simon’s Island lodging on the Golden Isles offers excellent beaches, golf courses, fishing and excellent restaurants. Whether you want to relax at a local spa, play a round of golf, or cycle along the paved trails, the area is a wonderful place to enjoy a rental home. The island has a historic lighthouse and if you climb the 129 steps to the top, you can enjoy spectacular sea and island views. The charming town of Brunswick has some fine historic buildings too. Tour the antebellum home on the Hofwyl Broadfield Plantation and learn about how rice was grown here in the early 19th century.

The quaint town of Darien and the historic site at Fort King George also make great days out from your Coastal Georgia home-away-from-home.
