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 Saint Simons Heights

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 , 1 queen, 2 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. Two adult bikes come with the house. 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.

The property is beautiful, the beach access was never crowded, and there is a ton to do around St. Simons. I went with my parents and my 2 year old son. Everyone had a great time.

Perfectly located in quiet East Beach neighborhood walking distance to beach & beautiful marsh view!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful property! The main living area was very spacious and offered beautiful sunrise and afternoon views of the marsh that lit up the whole room. This charming home is beautifully decorated throughout , cozy and inviting. The bedrooms were very large and perfect for our entire family. Located in a quiet East Beach neighborhood walking distance to the beach and a quick bike ride to the village. We got great use out if the heated outdoor shower to get sand off our feet once we returned from the beach! The owners provided all home info prior to our trip and also left the information in a book including dining options/locations, etc. We had such a great time there and will def be coming back to Heaven on 8th! Also, their housekeepers contacted my by phone/text to alert me that I had left my purse behind (ugh) and were kind enough to bring it to our friends in the area so that she could ship it to me-how great is that?!?! They were so sweet and accommodating and really went out of there way to make sure I received it intact. Not only a great house but a great team of people ! Thank you so much for everything!!!

Beautiful house and beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Where do I even start... This house is beautiful and has lots of room for a large group or family. Plenty of beds. The owners let us in the house early which is always a big plus. Had everything you would need for your stay. They had no problem letting us order a PPV event. The location is perfect if you are looking for a quiet neighborhood but still close to anything and everything. 100% would recommend this house to anyone. I will be staying here again in the future.

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!

East Beach on St Simons Island
Car: not necessary

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 ( mini golf, playground and seasonal pool) next door. Do NOT miss the BBQ at Southern Soul bar b due near Winn Dixie in the 'round about. Crab Trap has amazing and fresh seafood and you can walk there and home from our house!
