  • Girls Week on the Beach

    "We make several trips during the year to SSI always staying at Citrus Cottage. This trip the "girls" enjoyed the wonderful weather biking, beach walking (X2 daily), sight seeing and eating our way across the island. We enjoy the salt water pool and the roomy house. The house is located biking distance to most places including East Beach, Village and Redfern Village. The bedrooms were freshly painted since our last visit and the house just great. As Arnold said in one of his movies "I'll be back"."

  • Felt at Home

    "My wife and I were looking for a quick vacation to "disconnect" at St Simon's. This cottage was perfect in every way. The home is on a quiet corner lot and convenient to the beach and restaurants. It could easily sleep 8 so we are hoping for a return visit with grandkids in the future. Jennifer was very quick to respond to questions and offer recommendations. This was our first rental through VRBO and I could not be happier."

  • Lovely very clean Condo

    "The first thing I want to say about this lovely condo stay was how clean it was. This was my main concern for I dread long hotel stays you never know what your going walk into. My vacation consisted of a two week stay with my teenage nephew to visit my granddaughter who lived in Brunswick and worked at the local grocery store on the island. The days she worked late nights she would come to visit and request one of her favorite meals I would cook for her. Talk about a kitchen full of pots and pans with a plus of lots of dishes and silver wear (want people who rent this place not to make a mistake like I did and buy paper plates and plastic folks/spoons.) My granddaughter winded up staying with us her words, "Even though I live near I feel like I'm on a vacation away from home." She was upset when our two weeks came to an end and she had to go home. That is the feel that you get from staying here that you really feel this is your homeaway from home. The walk to the pier was pleasant as stated about 10 - 15 minute walk. Easy short drive to Jekyll Island and of cause Brunswick if your looking for a Walmart or more varieties of restaurants. I highly recommend this condo for your vacation visit."

  • Beautiful Home...Fantastic Family Vacay!

    "A last minute getaway turned into a mini-vacay! This home is everything we could have expected & more! We arrived at night but Kay's instructions to get in were excellent. The home has all the amenities right there....the pool, the view from widow's peak, the beach only steps away made for an all out great time...no need to leave for anything once you shop for food and beverages. The only thing I would say was and issue was that the pool guy was suppose to come turn on the heater for the pool that afternoon but didn't show up until that evening but that was a molehill in the grand scheme of this wonderful weekend. So much so, we decided to stay another day. The owner, Kay was a real peach. Thank you for allowing us to stay at your well kept & beautifully decorated beach home! We will visit again & I would definitely recommend this property!!!"

St. Simons Island Travel Tips

This spot in Georgia is the biggest of the Golden Isles along the southern Atlantic Coast. St. Simons Island boasts a temperate climate all year long, so whether you're planning to travel in the summer or the winter, you'll certainly be able to spend tons time enjoying the great outdoors.

The beaches are a big pull here with white, sandy shores warmed by the sun, gentle waters and ample space to spread out that beach towel and relax. The island is also a great place to spend afternoon fishing, either for leisure or to catch the evening's meal. If you prefer to dine out, St. Simons Island offers plenty of restaurants serving up local fare that are great for casual dining or an upscale night on the town. To really ease tension, there are lovely spas and salons where you can receive all the pampering you desire. Or, you can grab a bike and take some time to explore the 18 square miles of island terrain.

Things to Do on St. Simons Island

- Fort Frederica National Monument: History buffs, especially those who like learning about wars, will enjoy a visit to Fort Frederica National Monument. It was established in 1736 to protect the colony of Georgia from Spanish invaders in Florida, and today the land tells the story of a long-rooted conflict between Spain and Britain. The fort was named for Frederick Louis, the Prince of Wales, and used to control ship travel. Now you can explore the fort yourself as you step back in time and learn about life and war in the 18th century.

- Driftwood Education Center: If you enjoy hands-on experiences and would rather touch than look when visiting exhibits, then head to the Driftwood Education Center. Here you can get up close and personal with petting turtles, snakes, crabs and maybe even an alligator. You'll get a chance to really explore the marsh, beach and tidal river by jumping right in, and learn about the ecosystem and wildlife from trained professionals.

- The Island Players: Live performances are always fun during a holiday and if you're a theater enthusiast, you won't want to miss out on a show by The Island Players, who've been performing since 1956. Actors of all ages take the stage to put on four annual productions as well as a Young Peoples Summer Workshop. Previous shows have included Spamalot, Godspell, Busybody and many more.

- St. Simons Island Lighthouse: You won't want to forget the camera when you visit this postcard-like picture-perfect setting. The lighthouse can be found on the south end of the island and you can climb the numerous stairs to the top and check out the breathtaking view as well as the Keeper's Dwelling, which is home to the St. Simons Island Lighthouse Museum. Next door is the A.W. Jones Heritage Center where you'll find a research library, exhibits and and event hall. Also nearby is the Maritime Center, where you can learn the St. Simons Island military history as well as more about the island itself.

Dining on St. Simons Island

- Crabdaddy's: Visitors and locals alike love to frequent Crabdaddy's for delicious local seafood. Whether it's blackened, grilled, steamed or fried, for more than two decades, this has been a favorite eatery on the island. If seafood isn't your pleasure, there are also amazing, hand-selected steaks from local farmers along with vegetables, and the chefs cook up family recipes that will remind you of home. Be sure to save room for "to die for" desserts like mouthwatering bread pudding.

- Southern Soul Barbeque: Fans of down-home, Southern cooking will savor every bite of their meal at Southern Soul Barbeque. Slather the sauce over favorite dishes like ribs, pulled pork, brisket and chicken and pair it with homestyle sides like potato salad, collard greens, hoppin' john, mac and cheese and more. There's a great vibe here, though your mouth will be too full to have a real conversation about it. Wash it all down with a sweet tea and you'll feel nothing but satisfied after dinner.

- Barbara Jean's: Since 1998, eating a meal at Barbara Jean's has felt like dining at a close relative's home. This family-run eatery specializes in seafood as well as made-from-scratch, homestyle cooking, all served up in a relaxed, easy-going atmosphere. Some must-try dishes here include the crab cakes, she crab soup, tuna steaks, meatloaf and more. But don't fill up too fast, dessert is delicious here, so save room for the famous "chocolate stuff," bread pudding, key lime tart or fruit cobbler.
