About Matthew and Gail Reid
My wife and I are Atlanta residents who have been coming to the Golden Isles for vacations all our lives. We love the vibe on St. SImons and were fortunate to buy this home in 2005 as it was under construction. We kept the colors light and bright and added details to make it welcoming. There are beach chairs and beach toys for your use.
Matthew and Gail Reid purchased this House in 2005
Why Matthew and Gail Reid chose Demere Park
This private three bedroom, 2-1/2 bath house is close to the village, closer to CrabDaddy's and Crab Trap Restaurants, and only 3/4 mile to the beach! Our street is a cul de sac so it is very quiet and safe for children on bicycles. The furnishings are good looking and beachy (not filled with cast offs from the basement). All the mattresses are pillow top - I sleep better here than anywhere else.
What makes this House unique
Come and relax - enjoy the beach life. When back at the house we have a foot rinse by the front steps to keep the sand out; an outdoor shower in the back yard with Hot & Cold. The home has a great room that pulls everyone together. And a chest full of games and puzzles for kids and family fun. Come sit on the rocking chairs on the wrap around porch. Relax. You're on St. Simons.

It's our 10th year of staying a month at 106 Jordan Lane! Need I say more? The location is perfect, and the home is well equipped. It is open and airy in a very quiet neighborhood.
Enjoyed the stay
Great location and the process was smooth and easy.
So happy you could stay in our home. Hope you can come back soon.,

Dream beach house!
We stayed here for 1 week & had a great time. The house is just as the pictures show - outside a little different... Picket fencing & Arbor have been added. It is so cute inside & plenty of room for our family of 5. It's conveniently located to everything on the island. The kitchen is well stocked - we cooked blue crab we caught at the pier!
This was our 4th trip to St. Simons (we stayed in the house next door yrs ago & I knew I wanted to stay here when I saw it) & one of our best trips too! The owners are great, the upstairs air went out 1 night & they had someone out first thing the next morning to fix it (it worked great all week). They also helped me get a book I had looked hard for but could not find. We can't imagine anyone having a bad stay in this house.
Thank you, Mr. & Mrs. Reid!
We are so glad that you enjoyed our house and your stay on SSI. We were delighted to provide you with a special memento from our Vacation Library. We hope you can come back soon!
Perfect vacation home on the island for a family
I grew up on St. Simons and love visiting from Norway and sharing my love for the island with my family. This home is in a perfect location with a short bike ride to the village, play grounds and the beach. It really makes you feel like you are a part of the island to live in this cute neighborhood with beautiful old trees all around. The house itself is nice and spacious with everything you could need in the kitchen. We really enjoyed the open and bright living room, as well as sitting on the cute front porch. We arrived right after Hurricane Irma and are impressed with the follow up in the days leading up to our visit. We would recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a rental that makes you feel like you are at home on the island.
So glad you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for the thoughtful review.
Great rental, nice and clean and super comfortable
This was our first visit to saint Simon's Island and we thoroughly enjoyed it, the vacation rental was really cute and comfy and was perfect for us
Beautiful, great location , clean
Clean, close, lovely. Stay here--you won't regret it!
- Ride around St. Simon's on the dedicated bike paths.
- Stroll the beach looking for shells.
- Summer Waves Water Park is only a 20 minute drive away - great fun for the whole family.
- Great restaurants are a short distance away. Crabdaddy's and The Crab Trap are less than 1/2 mile from the house. Don't miss the award winning barbecue at Southern Soul (worth the trip just for that).
