Overview

About the property

''Lesser Breeze'' is the rebirth of our family’s true island cottage and is the smaller wing of a larger rental (''Fuller Breeze'') that can be enjoyed in it's entirety or rented as one of two wings, depending on your needs. ''Fuller Breeze'' in total has six bedrooms, broken down into ''’Lesser Breeze'' having two and ''Island Breeze'' having four.

Comfortable furnishings are a blend of contemporary, mid-century, and antique pieces. The interiors recreate the original house built in the 1920's by our grandparents, but with modern comforts. All rooms feature beaded board ceilings and overhead fans. Separate parking for this wing is provided for two cars.

''Lesser Breeze'' first bedroom has a queen size bed, the second bedroom a double bed. A queen sofa sleeper is also available in the living room.

The fully equipped kitchen has a gas stove, electric oven, dishwasher, refrigerator with ice maker, and a dining table seating four. A large porch off the kitchen has a dining table seating six.

The living room has a television, VCR, DVD, and stereo with CD, this opens onto the best front porch on the island with rockers and a porch swing. A stack washer/dryer, wi-fi, and an outdoor gas grill are available for your use.

We hope you enjoy our home as much as we do! St. Simons Island is a special place every season of the year. We are happy to share ''Lesser Breeze'' with you!

About Judy Body

Owned by two sisters (native Atlantans), we consider St. Simons our second home.

Our connection to St. Simons goes back to the early 1900's. Our maternal grandparents, Leo and Harry Fuller, came to the island beginning on their honeymoon around 1910, arriving on the Emmaline and Hessie ferries and staying at the Arnold House.

They loved the island so much they purchased the first lots available in the first island subdivision planned near the Arnold House (roughly where the King and Prince Hotel is today) for $500. Our property was once the vegetable garden for the Arnold House and also had some type of aviary on it. At that time the ocean was visible from the front porches. Our grandfather was raised in Maine and surely thought he had gone to heaven, especially the year he grew 8 ft. tomato plants!

Photographs of our grandparents’ many adventures and old St. Simons scenes are framed on the walls of house.

The two modest cottages were enjoyed by our family for almost 70 years. We rebuilt the houses in 1996 raising and joining the two houses that once sat side by side. A large living/dining/kitchen room was added between the two houses with parking below. The houses can now be rented and enjoyed as one large 6 bedroom house or two individual houses, one with 4 bedrooms, one with 2 bedrooms.

Judy Body purchased this house in 1929

Why Judy Body chose Coastal

Our property was created with family in mind. The furnishings are comfortable and the layout provides for together time as well as alone time. The flavor of the interiors is that of the original island cottages. The location of ''Lesser Breeze'' is ideal....a few minutes walk to the beach, restaurants, and a short bike ride to the village or try a longer ride on the island-wide bike path. Even golf carts are for rent nearby.

What makes this house unique

''Lesser Breeze'' feels like home from the minute you walk in the door. A place to relax and wind down. Settle down in the rocking chairs or on the porch swing. We do not have white sofas!

Lesser Breeze, St Simons Island,

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed here occasional weeks for years and can attest it's as advertised. It's comfortable, clean, everything works, and it's not fussy. One relaxes on walking in the door, the kids can spread out, the beach and stores are convenient, and the grounds are a delight. I find whatever I need in the kitchen, enjoy the A/C if it's hot out, and am thoroughly pampered. The neighborhood is pleasant and quiet, the birding is great, and the beaching is superb with warm inviting water for swimming and ideal waves at high tide for buggieboarding and body surfing. The kids love the pool in St. Simons, the water park thing on Jekyl and a bit of freedom. Further afield, we've visited Cumberland, the Okeefenokee Swamp, the lighthouse, and Fort Frederika. For myself and my family, it's a highpoint.
