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 Saint 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.

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

This rental is very well kept, and clean. It was so welcoming and so was the owner. The best part is that it's close to all the attractions. We enjoyed our stay and look forward to another.

Relaxing, affordable, and very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed for three nights in July and were more than happy with our time at the Turtle Pond. The home has a great layout, was very clean, and the owners provided helpful binders of information about the area including restaurant recommendations that we loved. Thank you for everything you did to make our stay on beautiful St. Simons Island memorable!

Comfy Place

  • 5 of 5

My sons and I really enjoyed our stay in your home - although turtles wouldn't come out and play. Comfy beds, cozy livingroom, and convenient outdoor shower. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you!
