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 Darien

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.

Wonderful in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing month in this home. It is beautiful and complete in every way. Mornings on the porch, facing the marsh were the perfect way to start each day.

Great sleeping and waking to the sounds of birds followed by breakfast in the well equipped kitchen.

Jan and Bill were perfect hosts. We loved the history and warmth of the little town of Darien. We had a vacation and felt like we were a small part of a culture and community.

Girlfriends' weekend

  • 4 of 5

Overall the five women enjoyed our stay. Kitchen layout was perfect for cooking and talking. The view of the marsh is fabulous. There were a few problems that moderately marred our visit. Management forgot to leave a key to get in and we had to wait for it to be delivered. The coffee carafe was broken and we made coffee in a measuring cup for a day while waiting for the replacement carafe. The pool was not as clean as we would have liked. The pool walls were a bit scummy and we had to scoop dead crabs out each day by hand. Also the pool house/bar hadn't been cleaned for quite some time. We had to scrape off mud dauber nests and dead bugs and wash it all down before we could use it. Finally, the shower in the master bath didn't have hot water, so only two showers out of three served 5 women. The rest of the house was clean and comfortable, there were plenty of towels and we all liked the beds. Excellent location for a trip to Sapelo. And although the house seemed remote, it is not that far from grocery stores and dining.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay and this beautiful home. I apologize about the coffee carafe. It was delivered a day later than expected despite having been ordered before the last occupants (who accidently broke the previous one) arrived. All bathrooms have hot water. An instant/tankless hot water system services the entire house. Since the system is located at the far end of the house from the master bath it may take a minute or 3 for the hot water to get there. Pool is serviced weekly at this time of year. When aware of problems I can call for extra cleaning and am happy to do so. Sometimes folks 'forget' to shower (pool shower room) sunscreen off before getting in the pool. Little crabs....yep out here in the low country the little sand crabs are every where. On occasion raccoons also come and wash their paws at the pool. Key, yes, manager (me) was out of town with elderly mom having surgery.....sorry you had to wait the few minutes for my husband to run it over to you. Will speak to yard management about the pool house bar. Thank you

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.
