  • I hear this Villa calling my name!!!!

    "This is our second stay at this Villa! The villa was just perfect for our beach getaway. The location is quiet and just minutes away from the beach. The accommodations exceeded our expectations and we will definitely be back to stay again. The villa is modernly decorated and very cozy. We were so comfortable that we didn't want to leave. The listing description was exactly as stated and the photos accurately reflect the villa's appearance and amenities. It is very clean and well maintained. The owner was very prompt in responding to our reservation request and provided detailed instructions about gaining access to the villa. We had a very pleasurable experience! Wish we were still there! Thank you for sharing your villa with us again!"

  • Beautiful Townhouse In A Great Location Near The Beach

    "My husband and I stayed in this townhouse for 6 weeks. It is in a quiet area less than a block from the beach and about 3/4 mile from The Village where there are many shops and some really great restaurants. We walked to the village almost every day along the beach and enjoyed many a sunset from the pier. The sunsets are absolutely outstanding. The townhouse/condo is very comfortable with all the conveniences of home. The kitchen has everything you need to cook almost anything you want to and has plenty of dishes; it also has a separate wine refrigerator. The living area is decorated very nicely and the little half bath on the first floor is adorable. There is a patio out back to enjoy the nice weather and the grounds are very well groomed and kept very neat. The second floor has 2 good-sized bedrooms with plenty of storage, each with its own full bathroom. There is a washer and dryer on the same floor. There are lots of towels and sheets, too. The third floor is a deck where we enjoyed fire works on New Years Eve. They were spectacular. There are nice pictures and art work through out the entire condo. Best of all is Courtenay, one of the owners. She is a dream to work with and very responsive to all emails and phone calls. The few times we needed something taken care of, she was on it immediately. We enjoyed many restaurants while we were there and especially enjoyed the Deep-dish Southern Soul Pizza at CJ's and the southern Soul BBQ. We ordered carry-put from both places. We also went to the Half-Shell, Mullet Bay and a variety of other places. The shops are fun to look through and more fun when you buy something. The beaches are beautiful to walk and very peaceful. It is entertaining to watch the many huge cargo ships that pass by daily. You can get around very easily to most places without a car and if you love to walk you will be in heaven here. We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend this condo. Believe me, you will really enjoy your stay."

  • Highly Recommended

    "We had a wonderful stay. Owners Jim and Claudia were very gracious and attentive to our needs. This is a great vacation location with plenty of room for visitors and overnight guests. We especially enjoyed the short walk to the village with all the great bars, restaurants and shops. Th local residents and service personnel were all very friendly and helpful. Also a great location for golf, historical tourism, day trips to the very interesting surrounding areas, and scenic drives around the island itself with its absolutely beautiful natural features. We would definitely return."

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.
