About Jim Peagler
I am a native of this area and familiar with all The Golden Isles of Georgia have to offer. I have recently retired and enjoy hosting people in my cottage, traveling, nature, exercising, and cooking.
Jim Peagler purchased this Apartment in 2010
Why Jim Peagler chose Epworth Acres
My property is unique in that it is located on a deep water creek with dock access. Your doorway is less than 25 feet from the creek. I am at the end of a cul de sac with my left side being flanked by county owned wooded property and my neighbor owns two acres on the other side making for a very peaceful and secluded setting yet only 1/4 of a mile from shopping, restaurants, nightlife, the movie theatre, golf, and other activities. Wildlife abounds as various assortments of birds, fish, deer, alligators, manatees, gars, river otters, minks, and crab can be seen by the patient observer. Relax outdoors under a huge live oak tree canopy!
What makes this Apartment unique
The location is near all the best shopping, golf, and restaurants on St Simons Island. The property is on deep water and allows the use of the dock and dock house for leisure time or to tie your boat to. The dock house has a fish cleaning station to get your catch ready! Fifteen feet from the dock on the water is a communal fire pit where you can relax, keep warm, and enjoy the beauty this area has to offer. Kayaks included.

I wouldn't change a thing. The pictures doesn't do the property justice, so much nicer. Mr.Tommy was really nice, inviting, and helpful. We did really well fishing, when we weren't fishing we were relaxing watching the water. Our dog Max had a really good time as well, Mr.Tommy also loved him. We'll be returning soon.
Peaceful, Convenient, Natural Setting
Very private location at the end of a cul-de-sac, looking out onto the tidal salt marsh with its abundant wildlife and natural beauty. Yet it is very convenient to the causeway, The Village, parks, beaches, and fantastic restaurants, shops and services.
Public golf is available about 1 mile away.
We loved watching the pelicans, egrets, anhingas, herons, kingfishers, sea otters, dolphins, and leaping fish... and loved walking among the majestic liveoaks with cascading Spanish moss. Southern charm oozes everywhere.
Sip a cocktail on the manmade beach or large boat dock while enjoying the magnificent sunset and the incoming or outgoing tidal flow.
Day trips to St Augustine, Savannah, Jekyll Island and the many historic sites in and around Saint Simons and Brunswick area are easily managed.
Tommy is a wonderful host who will make you most welcome. The accommodations were immaculate and quite suitable for our 7 week stay along with our pets. It was our second time staying here, but not the last.
Thank you !
Great stay in SSI
Great location, gracious host, excellent views of the river and marsh (including aligator!). Nice digs: clean, comfortable.
Recommend visiting Jekyll island and touring the "cottages", Fort Federica, Lighthouse, Ghost Walk, charter fishing trip, Broadfield Plantation and of course the beaches!
Thank you. Y'all were great!
Very peaceful. Very clean. Just what we were looking for.
Mr Tommy was very gracious. The room was very clean and well provided for. It sits just far enough off road to be quiet and peaceful. My husband and I loved it. The dock was my husbands favorite place to just sit and watch the water. We can't wait to go back!!
It was very clean and a good location. The beds were not comfortable. Two queens size in the same room. Sheets had no elastic in fitted sheet. Came off the bed during the night. Very old mattresses. We would go back if beds were changed.
One of those beds is brand new. They are commercial firm hotel mattresses. I would have given you a new sheet if you had only asked me. But yet you said nothing to me,
Great base for exploring this wonderful island
Tommy was a great host, present but not intrusive. Apartment was the perfect base to explore the island, come back and relax on the dock, sometimes fish. Saw dolphins from the dock, as well as other wildlife. There was always a breeze to cool the dock. We had a great time and hope to come back soon. Saint Simons is a really friendly (and dog friendly) island with lots of places we have yet to explore.
