Our two-story home features three bedrooms, two full baths and a half bath (maximum six person occupancy). The master suite is on the first level. Other features include a fireplace, wood floors, patio with barbecue grill in large backyard with privacy fence, and well appointed kitchen. Shaded by a magnificent oak canopy, you can relax on the wrap around porches with rocking chairs and a glider to while away the afternoon.

The main room has a double height ceiling with twin ceiling fans and windows all around. We leave books for you to read and have a selection of games and puzzles for your family to enjoy. The local restaurants are varied and wonderful. We hope you enjoy your stay at Terrapin Station!

- 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).

- Contact us and we can answer any questions you may have about local activities.
