About Brandon Bartell

We live in Ohio and this is our second home. We are able to make it to SSI about 5 times a year to visit family. We love Saint Simons and hope to move here some day.

Brandon Bartell purchased this condo in 2013

Why Brandon Bartell chose St Simons Island

We stayed at a friends condo in Gascoigne and felt at home. We were able to find this condo and turn it on to a true second home. This condo sits on the turtle lagoon, and it truly is relaxing feeding the turtles. This condo is close to the beach and very easy access off the island to visit other destinations.

What makes this condo unique

This island has a unique feel. It is peaceful and not over touristy.

Unsatisfactory Accommodations

  • 1 of 5

Very misleading pictures & descriptions. Very old units, from the fifties or sixties. All plumbing fixtures old, rusty. Vanities were very low, 30 inches or less. No garbage disposal in kitchen. Coffee maker was like a hotel unit. No view. Looked out onto a very busy constant traffic intersection.

Noise all night. Deck was old, filthy. Doors were rusty, screens filthy & torn. Could not sit on outside furniture.. rusty, dirty. Grill looked like it had not been cleaned in 3 years. No fresh air. Either air conditioner or heat.

Bed was uncomfortable with a mattress wrapped in plastic.

Cable TV with no digital reception! Felt like living in a housing project.

I wouldn’t rent it again.

  • 2 of 5

Clean and easy to get to but HEAVY traffic noise from adjacent road outside which kept us awake. Tried to contact property manager a couple of times by text and email to locate keys to bike storage. No response from him until after checkout and vacation was over. Thankful it was over bikes and not something more dire.

So peaceful, so charming.

  • 5 of 5

I definitely recommend staying here. VRBO app is so easy to use, the apartment was so clean and organized, the person in charge was very easy to get in touch with, and above all, the area of Saint Simon's Island is so beautiful. This was my second trip to this area and it won't be my last. Thank you
