About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Crane's Willderrness is a newly constructed residence (2007) located in the Old Village area of St Simons Island. We are two and a half blocks from the Lighthouse beach and the main shopping area. You will be delightfully relaxed with easy walks to the lighthouse, pool, parks, pier and many restaurants. When the tide is low, you can walk to the beaches near the lighthouse. When the tide is high, you can stroll along the boardwalk from the lighthouse to the Pier or might choose to ride bikes or take a 1 mile drive to the wide, ever-present beaches at East Beach.

Our two story, 4 bedroom cottage is a craftsman style home with special amenities to make your stay comfortable and relaxing:

- A true 'great room' that combines the kitchen, dining, and living room into a highly functional space for hanging out with family and friends. The living room has a large flat screen tv for moving watching and game playing. There is also a large sectional couch for hanging out and visiting or reading.

- Crane's Wilderness can accommodate three families for that 'yearly reunion' or wedding weekend and we have an additional rental (#130247) next door with two bedrooms (one King bed and one room with twin beds) for another family.

- Our gourmet kitchen is open to the breakfast nook and has an eating counter/bar for socializing with the 'cook' or 'bar tender'! The kitchen is fully stocked with cooking items, utensils, and electric appliances. The gas cooktop is high intensity, and there are three ovens for baking, convection, and pizzas - you need only to bring your food!

- The large family room has a wet bar and Hi def TV with high-speed Internet and WiFi available.

There are 4 bedrooms:

- Master Bedroom with king bed
This room has a 'memory foam' bed, a love seat for reading, an attached master bathroom with a walk in closet, and a great porch that looks out into the Live Oak Trees - kind of like a fancy tree house up there! Great for that morning coffee or tea or a nice glass of wine in the evening. Can easily seat 6-8 people up there.

- Master Bath has a 'soaker tub' with a view of the sky and trees, a separate shower and his and hers vanities. You may also warm your bath towel on the heated rack and warm the floors in the Winter for your toes.

There are three additional bedrooms

1 - the 'Jungle Room' is ideal for up to 6 kids or for adults who are wishing to share the room with their young children. It has a queen bed as well as a bunk-bed with a double/full mattress on the bottom and a single mattress on top. There is an additional spare mattress stored under the double lower bunk mattress that can be placed on the floor for another person.

2 - the 'Garden Room' has a king bed and a single day bed. This room is great for a couple or 3 adults who like each other or a couple with a child that they would like to have sleep in their room.

3- the front 'Sitting Room' has a full-sized 'Murphy Bed' (folds down from the wall). This room also has french doors that open onto the screened-in front porch. It also has a separate door that opens into the 'Handicapped accessible' bathroom with a shower on the first floor. There is another door to this bathroom off of the hallway that leads to the family/great room.

There is a 'wheel-chair' accessible ramp at the back of the house that enters into the family room as well as an outside dining table and a gas grill for BBQing under cover.

The main level has a screened porch in the front of the house for year-round relaxing bug free with a nice ceiling fan too.

The upper porch is off the Master Bedroom and is like being in a 'tree house'. The Live Oaks perfectly shade the porch and the vines, magic ferns, and natural aviary provide a most relaxing setting cooled by two ceiling fans - if you can't relax here, well, you can't relax!

Your dog (or two) is (are) welcome if well-behaved and house-trained. We ask that you keep your pets bathed and treated for fleas and PLEASE keep pets OFF of the furniture. Bring a pet bed or crate for them to rest when you are not at home and keep the yard poop free!

We invite you to come and enjoy our special place near the charming old village on St Simons Island! We hope you will enjoy it as much as we do!

- Carrell, Shannon and Stu

Manager info

About: Our family has owned property and visited St Simons regularly since 1977. This is the perfect spot on the island walking distance to all the village restaurants and bars as well as the lighthouse beach.

Why Saint Simons Island, GA, USA:
Carrell built this home in 2007 as a family beach retreat for herself and her two adult children and their families. She also dreams of retiring here one day! Her 4 grandchildren are building many happy memories here at MeMe's beach house!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our family especially enjoys relaxing on the porches and taking strolls and bike-rides to the beach, lighthouse, parks, pool and village. We have also enjoyed cooking up some delicious family meals, watching movies, reading books, playing games, putting together puzzles and just being together.
