About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This area of the Georgia coast remains quiet and secluded and lies in the path of hundreds of migratory bird species along the colonial coast migratory route. Reveling in each sunrise,taking lazy afternoon naps and toasting the sunset is the norm rather than the exception here. Darien/McIntosh County is famous for its fishing and rich in history. The surrounding tidal creeks and rivers are teaming with fish. Buy fresh shrimp and seafood right off the shrimp boats! Nearby Sapelo Island is alive with culture. This remote barrier island offers tours, biking through maritime forests and beautiful beach for great shelling. This coastal home is accessible by car. It is beautifully decorated with every concern for detail. From the gourmet kitchen to the luxurious master suite and your own private swimming pool. This 3000+ square foot marsh front home with tidal creek access is a truly tranquil and relaxing setting. Boaters, you are just minutes from the Intracoastal Waterway and Doboy Sound. Public boat ramps and marinas are 5-10 minutes away. 55 minutes south of Savannah, GA and one hour north of Jacksonville Florida. A short 30 minute drive to St. Simon's Island and Jekyll Island.

Keywords: Coastal water front Home with pool 4 BR 3 Bath. Fabulous views and quiet setting.

About Jan Chamberlain

Our hectic Atlanta life leaves us with a need for relaxation. Our time on Seabreeze Island is a restful relaxing time for us. We hope you will enjoy the peace and tranquility of this beautiful place as well.

Jan Chamberlain purchased this house in 2005

Why Jan Chamberlain chose Coastal

This property has outstanding views of the surrounding marsh and estuaries with amazing sunsets.

What makes this house unique

Besides the peaceful sounds and sights of nature that abound we enjoy fishing, crabbing and exploring the myriad of waterways around the property. We can catch the Sapelo Island ferry and enjoy the adventure of a limited access barrier island full of history and steeped in sea island culture or head out for a round of golf at area golf courses. Or, we can simply relax by the pool and gaze on the ever changing marsh and tidal creeks.

Kelham Spring Break

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with the comforts of the home. What we needed or wanted was provided nicely. The location was a bit farther out than what was expected. However, the peacefulness and sounds of the island were very relaxing. We highly recommend this home to any family. Thank you.

Lovely Home Overlooking the Marshes

  • 5 of 5

This lovely house is well-furnished and comfortable. There is a large deck across the back overlooking the marshes, partially shaded. The kitchen is extremely well-equipped. We found the home very clean. Although we did not use it, there is a very nice pool beside the house.

We enjoyed our walks around the area and watching the birds on the marshes. One morning a wood stork flew over and then landed in a tree by the marsh. We sat watching each other for quite a while. This was our second visit to this home, and I'm sure we will return again.

Wonderful, relaxing, well-located home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house during Spring Break and it was perfect for us. The house is someone's much loved second home and is managed by a local couple who are extremely friendly and helpful. They were very quick to respond to emails to make the reservation and to answer questions we had before the trip. The description and photos in the listing are accurate. The house is very clean, well-maintained, and stocked with everything you could possibly need. We loved having the attached garage on the last morning because we could stay dry loading the car while it was pouring rain outside.

What the website can't convey is how relaxing and beautiful the house and the surrounding area are. We took our dog for long walks around the area and enjoyed the many birds and the herd of deer we regularly saw. The back deck is perfect for sunning while the front porch is perfect for relaxing in the shade with a book. Wherever we went during the day we loved coming home to beautiful sunsets and a quiet evening together. We worried about biting bugs, but a constant breeze from the ocean kept the no-see-ums at bay so we spent a lot of time outdoors.

Our teen daughter greatly appreciated the quiet nights to de-stress and catch up on her sleep. She also appreciated the excellent wifi to stay in touch with her friends and stream some movies before bed.

The house's location in Darien was convenient for us because we knew we wanted to go south to the island beaches (30-45 minutes) and north to Savannah (1 hour). Our week flew by and we all felt like this home made our first trip to coastal Georgia really special. We have rented from VRBO several times and this is one of our favorite houses.

We'd recommend this rental to anyone who enjoys a peaceful, beautiful location and want to be in a beautiful home. It is not the right rental for someone who wants to be in the middle of all the spring break action or just wants a crash pad.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and for staying at Sea Breeze. Nature and quiet beauty is what this area is all about. Sounds like you took full advantage of what the Georgia coast has to offer. We hope you'll return for another visit.

The house is very nice. Loved the huge kitchen and island. It was very clean. The only disappointing part was that the master bedroom did not have a king size bed. They did have one in another bedroom, however, it had a hugh lump in the middle of it. The mattress needs to be replaced, and we could not sleep on it. The other problem was the big horseflies. You could not sit by the pool because of them. They would bite us while in the pool. They were constantly trying to land on us, and if they bite you, you immediately know it as it really stings. We bought candles to keep them away, but the breeze always blew them out. I never thought being so close to the marsh would attract so many flies.

Owner's Response: The King bed in one of the additional bedrooms is two twins put together allowing for a change back to twins when needed. Horse flies are some of Mother Natures meanest little beasts. They are present for a short time and attracted to dark moving objects. Horse fly traps help some as does where light colored clothing and a cap.

Review of Our Recent Stay

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful House and the migratory birds were amazing. Very Peaceful!

Jan and Bill helped to settle us in and went out of their way to help with all our needs.

However, for this quality of home I did expect better bedding. The queen in the master was not of the quality as the rest of the furnishings. The mattress, the sheet thread count nor the pillows were of the standard this home should provide.

I think if these items were corrected one would fine this place just perfect!

This accommodation exceeded our expectations with more than just a few wonderful ammenities. For us, this was a last minute "getaway" from a short distance away for a family gathering to celebrate a Grandfather's birthday. From the moment we walked in until the moment we walked out, every single minute was enjoyed either swimming in the pool, riding a bicycle, sitting on the front porch swing, or rocking in a rocking chair enjoying the beautiful scenery from the back porch. I say listen up all Coastal Georgia residents, you do not have to drive a long distance to stay at a costly resort, just reserve this beautiful, well appointment, greatly furnished home. You will not be disappointed. I'm alreday thinking about when I can rent again this upcoming Fall season.
