About the property

Beautiful 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo! Newly renovated.

Come and relax in our beautifully renovated, 2nd floor Barnes Plantation condo! This 1260 sq. ft. condo is the largest 2 bedroom that Barnes has to offer, and the open floor plan makes it feel even more spacious! The well-equipped kitchen, with breakfast bar, looks into the living room and dining room, and the living space extends out onto an airy screened-in balcony, where you can relax and enjoy an expansive view of Barnes Plantation along with your morning coffee!

The master suite boasts a king-size bed with a comfy pillow top mattress, and an en suite bath. The second bedroom features a comfortable queen bed with pillow top mattress and twin bed with memory foam mattress. By closing the hallway doors, the second bedroom and bathroom can be turned into a private guest suite!

The living room and both bedrooms have new flat screen televisions, and the high speed internet streaming of Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Sling TV offers great viewing choices for everyone in the family!

Of course with the gorgeous weather in St. Simons you won’t want to stay inside watching tv all day! The mid-island location of Barnes is perfect for walking to nearby restaurants, shopping and nightlife, and is just a short ride to the beach, Pier Village, and other attractions.

Barnes Planation boasts well-kept grounds, with a walking path, a beautiful pool (heated in the cooler months), and a beautiful clubhouse with a well-equipped workout room.

About Don and Cheryl Whitehouse

My wife and I recently retired and were looking for a place to get away from the harsh Ohio winters. Last February we visited a friend on the island and instantly fell in love! While we look forward to spending more time on St. Simons Island, our home remains in Northeast Ohio where we are close to friends and family, which happily includes a growing number of grandchildren! We look forward to sharing our island retreat so that others may enjoy all the benefits that St. Simons Island has to offer!

Don and Cheryl Whitehouse purchased this condo in 2018

Why Don and Cheryl Whitehouse chose Saint Simons Heights

We looked at many condominiums on the island before deciding to buy in Barnes Plantation. As they say, you know it when you see it, and we fell in love with our unit the minute we first walked in! The tranquil setting at Barnes, coupled with the spacious open floor plan, simply grabbed us and wouldn’t let go!

What makes this condo unique

Barnes Plantation is in the heart of everything the island has to offer, and yet is surprisingly tranquil. Once you drive through the gates you would never know that the hub of the island lies just outside! You are literally just minutes from shopping, nightlife, the beach, Pier Village, golf courses, and other attractions, yet Barnes Plantation offers your own private oasis when the day is done.

Comfortable and convenient location on the island!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were very pleased with the property. The little things provided, like coffee k-cups and makeup remover towelettes were much appreciated! The condo is very clean and well-appointed; spacious and welcoming! We also enjoyed our morning coffee on the screened in porch, which included a ceiling fan! We highly recommend this property! Donald and Cheryl were quick to respond with our damage deposit refund as well! Thanks SO much for a “home away from home”!
