About Janna Mansker

As native Atlantans, we have always loved the Georgia coast and both grew up vacationing on St. Simons Island. We have wonderful memories of spending GA/FLA game weekends here, taking trips with our extended family and friends, and bringing both our children down for their first beach experiences. In spring of 2013 were visiting for spring break and stayed in Two if by Sea for the first time. We were immediately drawn to this unique home and its fantastic location in a neighorhood we've always loved. Noticing the property was for sale, we contacted the owner and the rest is history!

Janna Mansker purchased this house in 2013

Why Janna Mansker chose St Simons Island

Location, location, location!! We love being able to walk or bike everywhere while still feeling at home in a real neighborhood.

Amazing Stay

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed staying here! It was clean and had everything we needed. The location was amazing. It was so close to the town, which made it easier for us to explore. I would definitely definitely recommend this beautiful place for a relaxing time at St Simons Island. Loved everything about it!

Wonderful proximity to the beach! Easy and convenient check in and out.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous family vacation, including our 2 doggies. The home was very welcoming, and included all the necessities we needed for the first few days. Don’t bring any kitchen supplies/appliances because they have everything and more! And if you love to read, you’ll be very happy that you rented this home. The doggie park was only one block away, so it was very convenient for walking your fur babies. Look for SSI Rocks, too! Fun keepsake.

We walked nearly everywhere. When we ventured out a little further for sightseeing, we rented a golf cart. We highly recommend Island Golfcart Rentals, located one block from this rental home. We also highly recommend Island Dog, the premier doggie store on the island. Loved this place! Both of our doggies got new collars and leashes, with the expertise advice of the owner. She rocks! Ironically, the pups are the only ones that got souvenirs on this trip. Lol.

Highly recommend and we will be back!

Good location. Close to the pier, shopping and restaurants.

  • 5 of 5

Just perfect for our vacation. Adult daughter had her own room and could walk to the beach, pier, shopping and restaurants, so we could keep our own schedule taking the island tour and going for early morning beach walks to see the sun rise, etc. Our little dog liked the fenced in back yard and was welcomed by most areas in the village. The house was clean. I appreciated the washer and dryer.
