About The Owner

Native to Georgia... this is the first place we thought of when looking for vacation property. My mother has owned a place near the village for over 20 years so my children practically grew up here! I always dreamed of one day having a place of my own... and this is it! We picked this particular house because it was a new, modern, craftsman style construction in a well established neighborhood, convenient to both the beach and the village. We often park our car when we arrive and don't drive again until it is time to leave. We named the house 'Righteous Oaks' from a scripture reference from Isaiah 61:3b 'They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor.' This fits perfectly in reference to all of the beautiful live oak trees on the island and for other more personal reasons : ) This home holds a very special place in my heart... a good place to relax, renew and refresh yourself!

The Owner purchased this house in 2006

Why The Owner chose Coastal

St. Simons Island is conveniently located 5 hours from Atlanta and an easy drive! Once you arrive, you never want to leave. I think it is the quaint, small town village feel that people fall in love with. It is like a time warp... just don't think you can duplicate it. The pace is slow, the people are friendly, you rarely see or hear a cell phone, the food is great and you can bike everywhere... love it!

What makes this house unique

Besides being able to bike everywhere, we occasionally treat ourselves to a few excursions. We have a favorite captain that we like to book for a day of fishing or just exploring the area. It is also fun to kayak... there is a great place in the village that offers trips through the marsh... a quick beginners class and you are on your way! We have also been known to bike over to the far side of the island to visit Christ's church and stop on the way back for a treat : )

Excellent home on St. Simon Island

  • 5 of 5

This is an outstanding home. We've stayed for a month two years in a row-it got better this year and last year was great.The rooms are huge and the lay out is perfect for family or guests. It is a very short walk to the Beach and only 10-15 minute walk to the Village, which has everything but a grocery.

Best of all , the owners are a pleasure to deal with. We had an issue or two last year and they responded immediately.

Very nice people. Dick Darko

Great beach cottage...fabulous location!

  • 5 of 5

We were on St. Simons for a Thanksgiving family gathering, and Righteous Oaks was perfect for our family! Great floor plan, fully equipped kitchen and large screened porch. It was spotless and even better than expected. We are looking forward to our next visit!

Such a great time....such a fabulous house

  • 5 of 5

Seven family members rented this fabulous Righteous Oaks for an anniversary party that was being celebrated in St Simons. The house is amazing. The rooms lovely and the air conditioner was perfect in 100 degree weather. We were not there much, but enjoyed every second that we were. Spent most of the time hanging around the kitchen. We loved it. Perfect spot too for so many activities.

Best Summer Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5

My family rented Righteous Oaks for a month. It was the best trip we have ever taken. The house has everything you need. We have 5 teenagers and the house was plenty big for all of us. The porch was great for late night games and early morning reading. The house is perfectly located between the beach and the village. We went to the beach straight down Myrtle Street (take a left from the house and go until you see Myrtle on the right.) It had beach even at high tide. We also went to the Coast Guard Station but it was a haul to the beach because it is such a wide beach. But it has bathrooms and more space to play games and such. Both places were great though. We rode our bikes EVERYWHERE!! Because we were so close to the village and to Crab Daddy's and Crab Trap, someone would ride to a restaurant and make reservations while everyone else was getting ready and then we all returned just in time for our table to be called.

We went to Gould's Inlet at the end of East Beach. You can fish and crab there. At low tide you can go across the mouth of the creek and go onto a little island and hunt for shells - best to go by kayak or paddleboard. The currant is strong there. We brought our own kayaks so we went up in the creeks at East Beach and paddled around. The kids crabbed at the pier several times - usually giving the crabs away to the locals that were crabbing there as well.

Great Places:

Breakfast - Mallory Street Cafe

Lunch - Brogans- Village; Beachcomber

Happy Hour - Catch 228 - Redfern Village - 1/2 price oysters 4-6 daily.

Dinner - Crab Daddy's (Mostly grilled); Iguanas (best fried shrimp); Barbara Jean

Dessert - St Simons Sweets, FroYo, ZUZU

Bike rental - Two Brothers Bike Shop - we had to repair some of our bikes and they repaired them plus did tuneups on them - charging only for the parts. Very nice!!! Ocean Motion is also a great place to rent bikes. They have a variety of bikes to choose from.

Some Off the beaten path day activities:

Sea Island Horse Stables - we didn't ride, we just walked around and petted the horses.

Cannon Point Reserve - nice nature walk/bike trails. Beautiful. Open Sat/Sun/Mon - North end

The Farm at Oatland North - Next to the Reserve. This is a farm for retired or rescued horses and other farm animals - open Sundays 2-4.

Donna is great to work with. We will definitely do this again. Our family loved our vacation and the house was perfect,

Thanks so much!!!

A Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at this home in St. Simon. It is quite large and well furnished--another couple visited us for several days and we all had complete privacy.

The location is very good for beach walks, restaurants, bars, and shops. It is all about a 6 block walk. The beach, at low tide, is just incredible .

Further away are more extensive shopping and restaurants. The island itself has multiple attractions and several more are a short drive away.

The house is equipped with all equipment and appliances you could ever ask for, including a nifty wine bottle opener. Three TVs, DVD player, wi-fi, telephone.

Best of all , the owners are extremely accommodating. We ran into a couple of problems ( one our fault ) and they were remedied immediately. We hope to return next year.
