''Island Breeze'' is the rebirth of our family’s true island cottage and is the larger 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-four cars, two of which can be parked under the house out of the weather.

''Island Breeze'' has two bedrooms that have a queen size bed, the third bedroom has a double bed, and the fourth bedroom has two twins. A queen sofa sleeper is also available in the living room.

The fully equipped kitchen has a gas stove, electric oven, dishwasher, refrigerator and ice machine as well as a breakfast bar seating 4. Adjacent is a dining table seating 8-10. The rear deck has two tables seating four each.

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 ''Island 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

''Island 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!

Real home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed at Fuller Breeze with some friends during Spring Break this year. The house immediately felt like home to us, the minute we walked in. I was really impressed with the open concept living space, that’s huge. The dining table seats 10 people, and the breakfast counter 4-6. The living room area has 2 big comfortable couches, plus extra seating. The ceiling has to be at least 18 feet high, which makes the home feel relaxing and airy, with lots of natural light. When I look for beach rentals, I look for this kind of properties, full of character, family feel, lots of space, plenty of seating indoor and outdoor for big groups, off street parking, and a property that’s taken care of and loved. This house has 3 porches. I had a chance to check out the smaller house, which can be rented with this one, making it a 6 BDR, or rented separately. The smaller house is very charming and also has it’s own parking spaces and porches, etc. The walk to the beach is really short and easy, I’d say 300 feet or less. The beach at the end of the street is really nice, not crowded at all. My daughter and her friends spent the days biking in the neighborhood and to the village, they spent many hours fishing at the pier, and browsing the cute shops. It was great! I've been in St. Simons 3 times now, and I can say that parking was never a problem for me. The village has pretty good infrastructure for tourists, nice and clean public restrooms, plenty of parking, nice picnic tables, lots of green grass for you play, and big wide trees with lots of shaded areas. The village has enough restaurants to please anyone’s taste. Another big plus about the island is that you can find a lot of local art, and get to know about history. I recommend Saint Simons Island and Fuller Breeze, I can’t wait to go back with a bigger group.

Map

Our property is located a short walk to the beach and one mile from the pier and village. Close to bike and golf cart rentals as well as kayak, windsailing and paddle board rentals. Surf fishing and crabbing either in the ocean at the pier are popular. The village shops provide something for everyone. Many restaurants are one block away and many more in the village area.
