Overview

About the property

This newly renovated 2-bedroom/2-bath condo offers the best of island living.

New floors, paint scheme, rugs, and antique and eclectic furnishings offer unique style and outstanding comfort throughout. Custom color scheme was chosen by a noted interior designer. From the private, screened-in porch, enjoy coffee in the morning and cocktails in the evening, as you watch the wildlife wading in the lagoon below or early-morning and late-afternoon golfers finishing their rounds.

You're only a short walk to Sea Palms Resort's amenities - golf, tennis, swimming, bicycling, fitness center, and restaurant. Other restaurants are only a short drive away, offering award-winning barbecue, Mexican fusion, fresh sea food...something to please every taste.

Visit historic Christ Church, one of the oldest churches in Georgia, and Fort Frederica, the archaeological remnants of a fort and town built by James Oglethorpe between 1736 and 1748 to protect the southern area of the British colony of Georgia from Spanish encroachment in the early 18th century.

It's only 10 minutes to the beach, and 15 minutes to the charming Village of St. Simons and its famous lighthouse and pier.

If you'd rather stay in, there's a 46-inch Smart HDTV with BlueRay disc player in the great room, and 32-inch models in each bedroom, all installed with Comcast premium programming. Free Internet access is provided.

Better yet, simply relax on the screen porch and let Gallery Suite put you in a better place.

Perfect !!!!

  • 5 of 5

Best part for me was the home owner and our communication with each other. Ok there is more to highlight. Watching the morning sunrise off screen porch had to be my favorite.

Beautiful condo in quiet location.

  • 5 of 5

We have visited St. Simons four years in a row. We love staying on Sea Palms property. This condo's location and its close proximity to the Sea Palms Clubhouse and pool can't be beat. The Colony's pool is only a few hundred steps from the condo's front door. We had it entirely to ourselves during our visit. The frogs started singing every evening near 9:00. The condo's decor is beautiful. George's artwork adorns each room and captures the moods and calm of St. Simons. Everything you could possibly need for your visit is in the condo. The setup of the condo with one bedroom on one end and one on the other creates privacy. We didn't want to leave. This is the nicest place we have stayed during our four years of visits. The screen porch allows guests to sit outside in the evenings and not be bitten by mosquitoes. There is currently no fishing in the lagoon behind the building because an alligator has taken up residence there.

Our family of five had an absolutely wonderful nine days at the gallery suite at sea palms.

  • 5 of 5

The gallery suite has for very comfortable beds and the couches and chairs and eating areas are all beautifully decorated and comfortable. The kitchen has everything we needed to cook almost every night. We loved the screened in porch and it was big enough for all five of us to enjoy sunrises and sunsets every day. We would definitely come back again!

Wonderful condo on quiet golfcourse!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second month long stay on SSI and we were very pleased with the lovely condo, the golf course setting ( even though we are not golfers) , the relative ease of traveling around the island whether by bike or auto. One mile from a great grocery store and theatre. One plus miles from our vacation church. 5 miles from the Coast Guard Station where we like to park and either walk the beach for miles or ride our bikes into town . If this is your first visit to SSI , be sure to check out low tide. It is also easy to get off the island from the condo if you are looking for other adventures. We love Jekyll Is for biking and enjoyed a ferry ride to Cumberland Is. The Island tour was well worth the money and time .

Lots of great places to eat !

Back to the condo~ we loved the way it is set up with bath and bedroom on each side of the livingroom and kitchen The kitchen is larger than my one at home and had everything we needed. The porches were used a lot especially the screened one . We did not see very many golfers on this 18th green but enjoyed watching the ones who did make it that far. The lagoon supplied much viewing pleasure ~ many birds,turtles, jumping fish and the noisy tree frogs !! We visited the pool and it is lovely but the weather wasn't hot enough to tempt us to use it.

The condo is on the second story which was fine for us ~ 73 yo seniors with good knees !

Neighbors are friendly~

We love George's art work and spent a fair amount of time admiring all the paintings.

George was quick to respond to my telephone messages though they were simple ones , like 'it it ok to fish in the lagoon? '. !! We have already made our reservations for 2018 and will enjoy the anticipation 😊

One last comment~ we arrived after dark and finding the check-in office and then the actual condo was a bit challenging.

Gallery Suite "Class Act"

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky in 2016 to have the owner get a memo to the renters from Boston to let us take a walk through. One of the hardest things to do on SSI is to get a peal or look at what you may want to rent for the following year.

Gallery Suite décor is excellent and the Art work by the owner is fantastic, did not realize that the GS on the towels were for Gallery Suite and his art work. His wife has decorated the interior with a great bright touch to reflect the joy of the southern exposure.

Kitchen has all the cooking utensils and items that a chef would need to prepare great meals. Large kitchen with full size fridge/freezer-dishwasher-double sink- etc.. plenty of closet space and new plank flooring in the entire condo.

The layout is perfect with 2 master suites with the kitchen and living dinning area in the middle. 3 flat screen TV's and Blu-Ray playback. Great deck overlooking the lake and the 18th fairway, with all kinds of wildlife to observe- especially the jumping fish.

Location in the middle of the island is great, plus very quiet and restful with the neighbors whom are very friendly and concerned about our stay for 2 months. Covered parking and great lighting at night plus fine security.

Restaurant a 600 yard walk plus the pool and putting green- entertainment and fine shopping at your door step.

It is just a very grand place to stay, plus working with the owner who is so concerned makes this condo even more special in being on Saint Simons Island.
