About Jennifer Ivey

We are natives of South Georgia, and are UGA graduates. We reside full time in Atlanta and have two children.

Jennifer Ivey purchased this house in 2001

Why Jennifer Ivey chose St. Simons Island

My husband and I bought our St Simon's house the year we were married (2001) and have enjoyed spending time there with our two children, extended family and friends. We both enjoyed St Simon's with our families as children and are continuing the tradition.

It is a wonderful escape from Atlanta which is our full time residence.

What makes this house unique

Marsh views (sunsets/ marsh birds) from our second story main living space, heated outdoor shower, 2 king beds , 4 twins, 2 blocks from the beach, professionally decorated home! Master bedroom on main/second floor with a king PLUS an additional master suit with king bed and full kitchenette for another couple. Works well for two families!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really loved the house and the location was amazing. The view and the great décor/paintings were awesome. It was nice to be there just looking out over the marsh.

The house flowed beautifully and the walk to the beach was a breeze with the beach buggy. It was nice having 2 extra bikes as well so we didn’t have to bring so many down.

Jake loved the beach, but not the bath he took everytime he came back. Thank you for sharing your house with us.

When we come back that way we would only come back to heaven on 8th. We usually go to a different beach every year with the children so that they can learn and experience new adventures instead of going to the same place. But, we always said we would eventually go back to visit certain ones like St. Simons, Nantucket and Ockracoke.

We really enjoyed the privacy of East Beach with the large beach at low tide and the natural dune spaces. Jeykell Island was interesting as well.

First Anniversary in Heaven

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent our one year anniversary at Heaven on Eighth. St. Simons island is our happy place and this property was a wonderful addition to our celebration! We enjoyed sitting on the porch watching the beautiful sunset over the marsh. The garage is equipped with bikes for use along with a cart to help transport beach essentials on the few blocks walk to the beach. The bedrooms are roomy with a master suite upstairs and three bedrooms bedroom also has a mini kitchen. The home is beautifully decorated and the location is perfect for everything the east beach has to offer. Our trip was a last minute plan and the owners were easy to work with and quick to respond. We recommend this home for anyone looking for a great location, convenient beach access, and all the amenities you need while away from home! Thank you for a memorable first anniversary stay at St. Simons, we look forward to returning!

Perfect Family Vacation Place

  • 5 of 5

Heaven on Eighth is "justly" named! Getting our 3 children (with spouses and grandchild), who are scattered across southeastern US, for a peaceful week together was heaven! This home was decorated beautifully with original artwork, and the common areas (family room and dining room) were spacious enough for all of us to be together for meals and just lounging! The view of the marsh from the huge shuttered windows was breathtaking and always changing with the tide. The location was perfect! Off the beaten path, but a bike ride away from restaurants, shops, the beach, and the Maritime Center. Definitely a place we'll want to return to every September!

Heaven for sure...

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Heaven of Eighth in August of 2010 and July of 2011.

The house is comfortable, homey and very well kept. Decorated beautifully too.

The marsh sunsets are stunning and the short walk to the beach is easy.

The house is stocked with not only all the linens and kitchen ware, but well stocked with beach toys and chairs. The wheeled cart is a great plus for taking everything down to the beach! The bikes were wonderful for biking around town!

Owners are very friendly and responsive!

Our favorites are a kayak tour with a local outfitter, The Lady Jane Shrimp boat excursion and the Sea Turtle Recovery Center on nearby Jekyll Island. The local trolly tour of St Simon's is also a must. Rent bikes or a golf cart and explore the island! Climb the lighthouse in the village and get a day pass for the Neptune Park Fun Zone next door. Don't miss the BBQ at Southern Soul bar b que near Winn Dixie in the 'round about. Crab Trap has amazing seafood and you can walk there and home from our house!
