About Diane Corbitt

We made Atlanta our home, where my husband is a CPA and Financial Planner and I am a retired realtor. The last of our three grown children is in grad school. We now have four grandchildren, and hope to create some warm and wonderful St.Simons beach memories with them, as we did with our own family.

When our grown children come back to St.Simons, they like to touch and feel all of their favorite familiar places: crabbing at the pier (traps available at the village hardware store), Palmer's in the village for great breakfasts or lunch, Fort Frederica, Christ Church, Crab Trap for dinner, long walks on the beach at low tide looking for special finds and loggerhead turtle nests or just to walk, going on turtle hunts after dark to see the newly hatched baby turtles head to the ocean, building giant sand castles with moats, going deep sea fishing, biking all over the island, watching the pelicans perch on the pilings, checking out the tide pools for starfish and crabs, picnics on the beach, watching the seagulls catch bread in midair,kite flying, hunting for sand dollars, eating lots of great seafood, taking a kayak lesson, visiting the millionaires' village on Jekyll Island, strolling the village for fun shops and fabulous eateries (and ice cream), lunch at Palmer's,checking out the fishermens' latest catch at the pier, renting a sailboat, day tripping over to Cumberland Island (to see the wild horses and other creatures on this uninhabited island) via ferry from St.Mary's,

going into Brunswick to see the shrimp boats come in after a good haul, rising extra early to take in a spectacular sunrise from the beach, going to the community theater, out for frozen yogurt, going on a naturalist guided tour of the beach and/or marsh, eating out at the many great restaurants, making art projects on the porch, CJ's for pizza, curling up with a good book on the beach...not to mention all the wonderful golf and tennis amenities and the new pool complex in the village.

Diane Corbitt purchased this house in 2012

Why Diane Corbitt chose Coastal

We have vacationed on St.Simons Island all of our lives, and we finally decided we wanted to own a piece of it! St. Simons still

maintains the charm and character of days past, maintaining the best of the island! East Beach is the most desirable residential neighborhood on St.Simons for vacationers, due to the proximity to the beach and is surrounded by the bird sanctuary, the marsh side to the west, Gould's Inlet to the north and the Atlantic Ocean on the east with endless beach and sandbars that stretch into the horizon at low tide. The cottage is the second house from the beach, the first being the Dellinger House, a historic plantation style beach house owned by the same family since about 1920.

View the ocean from your living room and enjoy spectacular color at sunrise over the ocean from your ocean view deck while drinking your morning

coffee. Take a stroll along the marsh walkway at sunset for spectacular views of sky and wildlife.

What makes this house unique

Sea Haven Cottage is perfectly situated for all of beach life at St.Simons Island. The Gould's Inlet beach access is about a two minute walk, is also everyone's favorite beach (due to the abundance of sandbars) and also paddleboard launch, which is the new BIG water sport. You can try it out for yourself or enjoy being a spectator 100 yards from your front door, where the beach awaits, and where there are usually at least a few trying their skill. Also the perfect location for sea kayaking into the marsh. The historic Coast Guard Station and monument are located at the entry to East Beach. Just across the East Beach Causeway (across the marsh), and a few miles to your right, you will find the very interesting site and ruins of historic Fort Frederica, the site of the Battle of Bloody Marsh, and the historic and still active Christ Church. Several good restaurants on the island are within a minute's drive: Crab Daddy's, Crab Trap and Southern Soul BBQ. The cottage is a scenic and easy bike ride to the quaint village where you will find the historic lighthouse, pier, the new resort quality pool complex with 3 pools, water park, mini-golf course and playground, with the sparkling Atlantic Ocean as the spectacular backdrop. In the village are some casual dining choices such as Mellow Mushroom, Palmers(great breakfast or lunch), Half Shell, Iguana's(voted best shrimp), CJ's (Italian) and Moo Cow ice cream for dessert!

Best House on the Island!!!

  • 5 of 5

I really cannot say more than what everyone has already said about this home. We rented this house last minute for a work seminar and plan to rent the house every year from here on out. The pictures of the living room and kitchen views of the beach does not do it justice - it was incredible and far exceeded our expectations. The house was clean, beautiful and was well-stocked from kitchen supplies to bikes to pool floats. We used Uber to travel into town for dinner one night and it was super easy and a fast trip. On top of everything, the property owner Diane and property manager Ken were excellent to work with and responded to questions/requests within minutes. Thanks again for a fantastic trip!

St. Simons Island Experience

  • 5 of 5

This was our second family vacation and probably the most memorable. With Hurricane Mathew lurking in the Atlantic we were not sure what to expect. I turned out to be the best

accommodations we have experienced. The location was wonderful and the people were so nice. The house exceeded our expectations. The house was clean, roomy, and very comfortable. Will add this location to our 5 STAR list.

Perfect Beach Vacation House!

  • 5 of 5

This house was ah-mazing! The location couldn't be better, literally steps to the sand. And the private pool was everything we could ask for. The house itself was gorgeous - totally renovated and up to date. The layout and space worked well for our family as well. Each bedroom has its own bathroom, which is awesome for everyone :) The kitchen and living room are all open to each other so we could all be in the same area and see each other, but didn't feel cramped. We loved hanging out on the back porch overlooking the pool. It was a very comfortable place to be. Highly recommend this house for easy beach access, private pool, and high end finishings!

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

First off, the communication with Diane leading up to the trip was always super fast. Quick responses to all our questions. Secondly, coordination with Ken upon arrival in St. Simons could not have been easier or more helpful.

The house: It appears no expense was spared in renovating this place. All electronic door locks, so no keys are required! Tons of parking space! We easily fit 4 SUVs in the driveway. Super modern and fully equipped kitchen with Viking appliances, 2 coffee makers, blender, toaster, etc. All the pots, pans, utensils you could ever need.

The master suite is amazing. It could be a rental all unto itself, with its own huge bathroom, walk-in closet and brand new washer/dryer. Downstairs has 3 more bedrooms all with their own bathrooms. So this place is perfectly set up for families with kids as well. We comfortably fit 3 couples and one additional person.

The pool: I'd say we spent nearly all of our waking hours in and around the pool. Swimming or sitting on the lanai listening to music.

The location: We were about 100 yards from the beach one way and 200 yards from the marsh on the other side. Sunrises on the beach, sunsets on the marsh. A quick drive to great shopping and restaurants.

If you are planning a trip to St. Simons Island, I can't recommend this place highly enough. We hope to come back one day.

Most beautiful and AMAZING place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at another home last year on the West end of the beach and it does not compare to our experience this time. My family and friends saw this house on VRBO and thought it looked amazing and immediately wanted to rent it for our summer vacation. The pictures do not do it justice...the house is amazing!! Diane and her family thought of everything to make your stay so perfect, what was especially nice is that you did not have to carry a key, the home has keypad locking that makes it so easy to come and go. This home has EVERYTHING, fully stocked kitchen, beach toys and accessories for kids and adults and the salt water pool is wonderful. The cottage is so well kept and maintained and has great decor that is top notch. Ken (property manager) welcomed us at the cottage gave a us a tour and made us feel first class special. The process and communication with Diane was easy and it helped to meet the owner and know just how much they care about your vacation experience. We will definitely be back - Thank you Corbitt family!

Nestled along the sands of the Atlantic Ocean, St. Simons Island is surrounded by ocean breezes, swaying moss covered oaks and nature at its finest. The serene retreat of Sea Haven Cottage offers an unforgettable coastal Georgia vacation haven for guests and their families. The convenient location attracts guests from locations near and far. Pack your bags and discover what makes this everyone's favorite island! With an equidistant location between Jacksonville and Savannah International airports, St. Simons Island offers an unforgettable setting.

Snuggly situated between the marsh and ocean, East Beach is one of St. Simon's most scenic and desirable residential areas. Only two blocks separate the marsh on the west from the ocean on the east, ensuring you the best of both worlds. The U.S. Coast Guard Station, built in 1936, marks the entrance to East Beach at the intersection of Ocean Boulevard and the East Beach Causeway. Travel a mile to the north on Bruce Drive and you will encounter the Gould's Inlet beach access at 15th Street. From here, you can see Sea Island to the north. Sea Haven is the second house from the sand on Fifteenth Street.
