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 Saint Simons Island

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 : )

Really lovely, better than the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

We had two families meeting up for an extended weekend. So four adults and four kids (ages 6-10). It was perfect for us and great location. Master bedroom and bathroom are massive for a rental. Would definitely rent again.

So comfortable and a very well equipped home

  • 5 of 5

We felt at home immediately. Beautifully decorated home and as we like to cook, found everything we needed to make delicious meals during our stay. A five minute walk to the beautiful beach and close to shops and restaurants. We loved our stay and would come back again!

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
