About Real Escapes Properties

We live full time in Atlanta and have been visiting SSI for more than 30 years. I'm a Georgia Tech alumnus and feel outnumbered by the large University of Georgia contingent that visits the island, but there are still many Techies. Do not be intimidated by the bulldog statues that decorate the island. I'm also an Army brat who has seen vacation areas all over the world, but none that have all the fine qualities of St. Simons. Year after year we would return to SSI and rent various vacation properties and fell in love with the East Beach area. Driving on the causeway to SSI I always felt the stress of everyday life melt away; and village atmosphere is completely relaxiing. Finally we own a house at East Beach and would like to share it with you.

Real Escapes Properties purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Real Escapes Properties chose St. Simons Island

4311 Seventh street was love at first sight. It was originally built in 1942 and is a traditional East Beach cottage incorporating local tabby and brick construction. The cottage has been fully updated. Seventh St. is one of the best locations on East Beach. It is not far from the Historic Coast Guard Station where you have excellent beach access and lifeguards during the high season. It is short walk across the dunes to the beach, and an even shorter walk to the marsh.

What makes this cottage unique

From the time you enter the island on the causeway you'll enjoy the huge live oak trees with hanging moss that are the signature of this area. The quaint village with the pier and park have constant activities and fine restaurants. At the cottage you'll enjoy the covered pool deck area with gas grill and the swimming pool that we like to refer to as the 'cocktail' pool. The cottage has been redone throughout in 2013 and fully modernized, including Wi-Fi Internet access.

Perfect beach cottage

  • 5 of 5

This beach cottage was absolutely perfect for our weekend in st. Simons for a friends wedding. The house exceeded all of our expectations. I have stayed at many air bnb and vrbo rentals and this was one of my favorites! It was VERY clean, stocked with all the essentials, and accommodated us very well without feeling cramped. The house itself is not huge, but the layout utilizes the space perfectly. The outdoor area with a dipping pool was the icing on the cake. Close to the beach and all st simons has to offer! We will be back!!!!

Spacious, Quiet and Wonderful Vacation Retreat!!!

  • 5 of 5

If you don't need to see the beach from your bedroom window, then this is the place to rent!!! You won't find a nicer cottage than this. It is furnished with new appliances, large comfortable beds, and a top notch kitchen. It is BETTER than advertised!! The cottage is very spacious with 3 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms. There are 2 large sofas that could easily accommodate teenagers or younger kids making the house suitable for up to 8 guests. The neighborhood is unbelievably quiet!! East beach is a short scenic 8 minute stroll from the cottage. Each day we walked to the beach, and then took a dip in the pool afterwards. There is an outdoor shower that is perfect for washing off sandy feet and belongings. The pool area is perfect for relaxing in the evenings with a glass of wine or cola while the evening meal is cooking on the grill. The kitchen contains everything you could possibly need to cook a gourmet meal and all of the appliances are spotless. There is a tv is every bedroom as well as a large tv in the den. The Florida room is a great 'get away' room for teens or smaller kids. The cottage is furnished with many little extras to make your stay very comfortable. Even though each bedroom has an overhead ceiling fan, the owners also included portable fans in each bedroom for those that need white noise while sleeping. Also, there are extra beach towels hanging in one of the bedrooms and PLENTY of bathroom towels and wash cloths. The washing machine and dryer are the fastest I have ever experienced! I completely washed and dried a load of clothes in just over an hour!! I can't say enough good things about this cottage!! If you are looking for a spacious, relaxing and quiet place to vacation, then this is your place to rent. My family is already looking forward to the next trip we take to this wonderfully furnished and inviting cottage!!

East Beach
Car: recommended

East Beach is one of the most popular vacation areas of St. Simons Island. The old village feel and large live oak trees give it that low country, southern ambiance that is so different from Florida's beach areas. East Beach is a narrow peninsula bordered by the Atlantic Ocean on the east side and the marshes of Glynn on the west side. You can enjoy sunrises on the Atlantic side and sunsets on the marsh side. 4311 7th St. is nestled between the marsh (5 minute walk) and the ocean (10 minute walk over the dunes).
