About Carolyn Morgan ***Email is preferred method of contact!***

We bought this house in December 2009 because we fell in love with the cottage look & feel. (We've been told by multiple people it was featured in Cottage Living or Southern Living but we have yet to see the article!) Our house has a wonderful front porch that we tend to gravitate to every morning. The location on East Beach sealed the deal because we knew it was a family oriented neighborhood with its own beach, which is the best on St. Simons Island. The feel of this house is reminiscent of how going to the beach used to be - laid back and easygoing. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Why Carolyn Morgan ***Email is preferred method of contact!*** chose Coastal

This property is great because it mixes the old with the new. The old being the main house, which is full of cottage charm. And the new being the guesthouse, which has a large den (20' x 25') and a large bedroom & full bathroom. A lot of guests like to use this space as the 2nd master. The downstairs part of the guesthouse is a converted garage that now houses a ping pong table and foosball table, and has plenty of space for your bikes, beach chairs, strollers, wagons, etc. Storage space is definitely not a problem here.

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wedding to attend at St. Simons island and needed a large house. We found this one and found it perfect for our family. The kitchen was stocked with great cookware and utensils. The laundry room was huge. The bedrooms each had their own bathrooms which was great. The beds were very comfortable. This house worked out great and we would consider it if we are in the area again. It is within walking distance of the beach too. Very nice

Perfect for family beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house and yard are very attractive and comfortable, and only a few minutes' walk to a big, beautiful, uncrowded beach. The arrangements were easy and Carolyn was accommodating. This vacation home met and exceeded all of our expectations!

Charming Home

  • 5 of 5

The home has a lot of St. Simons charm. It was comfortably furnished with a very up to date decor. The location was perfect for walking or biking the island. There were multiple beach access points and the coast gaurd station is an easy walk. We enjoyed our weekend and we're more than pleased with the home.

We will certainly rebook this home.

Best week ever!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for New Year's week, 2015 and had an excellent time! The house was incredible for 2 families. All the accommodations were impeccable. The decor has been beautifully done and the ping pong and fusball were a great plus! The guest house above the garage feels as special as the main, so no one is giving up anything. The laundry room off the kitchen in the main house is fantastic. The screened porch was perfect and the small grill was great for dinner in the evening. Close to the beach and the marshes. Shopping, restaurants, etc. This house makes you feel like you've got the best place on the block!

Fantastic Beach Week

  • 5 of 5

We love St. Simons and have visited East Beach the past three years. This is the second year we have stayed here. The main house and guest house are very spacious and easily accomodated five adults and two small children. The location is minutes away from the beach and located in a very quiet neighborhood. Our family loved the screened-in porch area and the main porch.

St. Simons offers so much to keep adults and kids busy: Neptune Park has a pool and mini-golf, SE Adventures has some nice kayaking trips, Jekyll Island is close by, Ft. Fredrica, and plenty more. Also love the 6th Street area of East Beach because you don't have to deal with crowds.

We love the house, the beach, and the island- and will continue to visit. It is also a pleasure to work with Carolyn the owner. If you are planning a visit to St. Simon's, this house will make you wish you lived here year-round.

Wonderful Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect house for a relaxing get away! The house is adorable! We thoroughly enjoyed the screen porch in the afternoons and mornings. All of the rooms are very comfortable and spacious. The guest house is just as cozy as the main house! The kids had a great time in the game room. Couldn't have asked for more!

Some of the major nearby attractions are: East Beach (walk out the front door & walk @ 300 yards to the 6th St beach access), the pier & village, shopping at Redfern Village, golfing, boating, riding your bike along the bike paths, Fort Frederica, and tons more. Other than the beach, one of our favorite spots is the pier & village area, which is located about 2 miles away. They have great restaurants, shops, miniature golf, playgrounds, library, live theater, and a new pool with slides and all sorts of great features. They also have lots of rocking chairs and benches to enjoy the beautiful view from. Please ask about this in your inquiry...I'd love to send you more information about this. It is VERY nice for children of all ages! There are sidewalks all the way from our home to the makes for a great day with the family!
