About Thomas Pickren

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.

Thomas Pickren purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Thomas Pickren 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.

This is not your standard "cookie-cutter" rental!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a quiet, safe, comfortable, clean, place to relax and enjoy getting away from every day life. Tommy provided this and more. We are very picky about our comfort when sleeping. These beds gave us a good night's sleep. Everything is here that you need. Our favorite part was that it is on a cul-de-sac providing no traffic, no road noise AND most of all the natural setting which invites you to just sit on the dock and watch nature. There are several unique features in the outdoor space. I won't spoil your fun by describing them, you must see for yourself. Tommy is so sweet and helpful. He does not interfere with your time there but if you want to talk or ask questions, he is a wealth of information. Our two most favorite places were the Frederica Restuarant, just a few blocks away, and shopping in town at the pier. Don't forget to check out the visitor's center, and the fort, the museums. This island is beautiful, and worth your time. Say hello to Tommy for us

Great stay in SSI

  • 5 of 5

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!

Very peaceful. Very clean. Just what we were looking for.

  • 5 of 5

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!!

Clean

  • 3 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: 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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great Vacation Spot!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I come to visit SSI every summer. This summer we decided to try and stay somewhere different. We rented both of the apartments that Mr. Pickering had to offer at his place. He was super helpful and allowed us usage of his dock where we fished and crabbed each day. We loved the patio area and ended up making a low country boil which we made by using his pot and burners under the patio. Each unit has an ample kitchen area and many utensils that you would need to cook while there. Bathrooms are updated and flat screens are included. We love the location because it is located near many restaurants, Red Fern Village, Bennie's Red Barn, a Harris Teeter, etc. We will definitely return in the future! Thanks for a great experience at SSI this year!
