About Clay Edwards

We are native Atlantans and have been vacationing at Sea Island for over 60 yrs. We love this place! St. Simons Island, GA is nearby with plenty of affordable eating places. This lovely resort is 300 miles from Atlanta, but we still find time to go there every month to enjoy the relaxing atmosphere. And who else can throw a party or schedule exciting events to enjoy like Sea Island Resort. Tons of activities are available for you and your family.

Clay Edwards purchased this house in 1994

We have owned this home for over 20 years. It is our family's vacation paradise and is in the IDEAL location for any activity on Sea Island. Only 2 blocks to the Cloister Hotel, Beach Club, Atlantic ocean & beach, and Sea Island Spa and Tennis Center. Ride a bicycle or walk everywhere you want to go, even to St. Simons Island. This is the cleanest and safest beach in the southeast. Our children grew up here and our daughter got married here. What a special place this is for us. Sea Island is protected with a security gatehouse with guard for your vacation privacy. Car passes are required. We will get that for your visit.

What makes this house unique

We ride bicycles to everything we do while there because of our great location. The terrain is flat and no hills to climb.In fact we provide 10 adult bikes FREE for your use.The back yard is manicured grass, private, secluded, and roomy with a shaded hammock for relaxation. A well lit, spacious terrace with chairs, umbrella table, and padded chaise lounge is available for evening events. The table with umbrella protects you from the sun or rain and is a perfect place to have a meal. Cook steaks on the Weber charcoal grille or sit by the portable, patio fire pit in the evening.You are only 2 blocks from the Cloister Hotel and Beach Club. In fact, you can see the Cloister Hotel from our driveway. There are 2 driveway entrances and covered parking. You can hear the ocean in the evening. Cook in grand style in the newly renovated kitchen.

Awesome Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

Our family loves vacationing in Sea Island and staying at the Edward’s home on 229 West Fifth Street! This is our third year and once again our family had a wonderful time. We wouldn’t stay anywhere else. The house is a beautifully decorated, well laid out, comfortable house for our family to use. The kitchen has recently been updated and is a great gathering place. We enjoyed riding the bicycles that are provided, grilling on the private back patio, and reading in the hammock. The beach is only two blocks away. The owner is extremely accommodating and a joy to work with. I always recommend this place to friends who are planning a trip to Sea Island. It’s a winner!

Atlanta family

  • 5 of 5

We again very much enjoyed Cottage 200 for our family vacation in June. The proximity to all Sea Island amenities is very appealing plus the numerous bikes available for adults and kids. The renovation of the kitchen was also very nice with updated appliances and more space for meal preparation. Overall, a great house for a large family that plans to use the Beach Club most everyday.

Goldilocks find!

  • 5 of 5

Entering this home, I felt like Goldilocks when she found the bed that was "just right". This house is not too fancy, not too plain, not too far away from activties. It was just right! The kitchen and living room areas have been recently updated. We enjoyed breakfast daily on the back patio. One of the best assets is its location on 5th street, very close to The Cloister and to the Beach Club. The host was good to communicate and everything was as promised. Thank you, Clay, for sharing your home with us.

Sea Island, Many Great Memories

  • 5 of 5

The family stayed at this well maintained spacious home for part of Christmas Break. We had a wonderful time. The house was centrally located to the main hotel, beach resort and fitness area. The owner and his local help were very accommodating and wanted to make sure the trip went well

Beautiful Sea Island home

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend at Sea Island with our grown kids and our grandchildren. It was a very enjoyable vacation. The close proximity to the beach and the Beach Club made for an easy walk or bike ride each day. The recent kitchen remodel was well done in great style and the house layout provided relaxed living for a larger group. We will go back!

Excellent Sea Island home

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at the property and have nothing but good things to say. Everything was new and well maintained, done with good taste, and easy to use. The home is spacious with great outdoor views and the new kitchen is extraordinary. We could not think of one thing to make it better. Highly recommended.
