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.

Great location!

  • 3 of 5

Location can't be beat! It is located just behind Mallory Street Cafe / Island Dog and is within walking distance to everything in Pier Village. We walked/rode bikes everywhere we went, even to East Beach.

The unit is not new but was certainly clean and there were plenty of clean towels on hand. A 6' privacy fence surrounds the courtyard, which was very nice for letting our little dog out.

However, the mattresses were terribly uncomfortable. The king mattress not only was uncomfortable, but it made a loud crunching sound every time you moved (like a water bottle being crushed!) The double mattress was not super-comfortable, but it wasn't noisy like the king. A good night sleep is very important to us, so we felt it was worth mentioning.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your feedback, and we're glad enjoyed your visit! The mattresses were on our list of year-end improvements to make, and based upon your experience we are going to change them out ASAP to ensure the beds are as comfortable as the rest of the property. We appreciate your comments and hope you'll stay with us again the next time you visit St. Simons!

Great location and very comfortable

This location was very close to the lighthouse, pier, Neptune park, and Great restaurants and liquor stores. Short drive to beaches and very relaxing atmosphere.

Great place to stay. Clean, comfortable and great for a family with small kids. Courtyard gates lock and they can just have fun and play without worry. Walk to playground, pier, putt putt and all the shops and restaurants of Pier Village. We will be back!

Superb location, very convenient

  • 4 of 5

This is the best location you could want on St. Simons....close to the village, pier shops etc. The privacy fence locks so it feels very private and secure...wonderful for pets. The deck is great and you can barbecue. I stayed there Feb. through March 2013, 2014 and I will be returning for Feb through March 2015. The new couch looks fabulously comfortable and I can't wait to try it! The old one was not comfy at all! The new owner continues to update and make improvements so it is getting better and better! The kitchen has everything you need but I am hoping they get lighter dining room chairs... they are comfy but heavy! As for brightness, the entire lot is generally very shady because of the beautiful oak trees, but that has to be a really good thing in the hot summer months. It had wireless internet and HBO. Hodnett Cooper manages it and they were fast to respond to any needs... like when I locked myself out! It is a great place to stay! I wish I could be there for January and April too! If you want a more open living area try 510 B, but I prefer A.

We had a three night stay here just this weekend. We loves everything about it including the fact that our little 10 lb Chiweenie was with us and felt right at home. Will be back soon.

Features include two bedrooms, one bath, and a combined living, dining, and kitchen area, all with tile flooring. For a $150 non-refundable fee, this residence will accept pets. 510 Magnolia is located within 0.30 miles of tide contingent beach access and is a short, 1.5 mile car or bike ride to Massengale Park Beach. Bedding includes: 1 King, 1 Full, and 1 twin. Maximum Occupancy: 4 Traveling with extended family or friends? Reserve both sides of this duplex and ensure everyone has plenty of room and privacy.
