Beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay! It was so nice and cozy to be able to turn on the gas fireplace. We had a beautiful view of the marsh right outside on the porch (sunsets are beautiful!) and the place was big enough for our family of 4, my mom and our 2 dogs to stay. Everything that we needed for cooking was right there. We loved being able to get shrimp locally, and Skipper's Fish Camp in Darien was delicious. We also loved Fort King George State Park. It's great for the kids and dogs as you can go inside the fort and living quarters.

Great spot for seafood lovers!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the month of October here and really enjoyed our stay. We loved the porch overlooking the marsh. Fabulous sunsets! I wish I could share my photos with you. We enjoyed our tour of Sapelo Island - that was something I've always wanted to do.

The home is located in a beautiful area of the coast - much less commercial than many. Fresh seafood is plentiful and you can bring it right home and cook it in the well-equipped kitchen. We tried lots of local seafood restaurants as well. Our favorite was the Fish Dock at Pelican Point.

The host was very accommodating, very helpful. We will definitely be back!

Lovely house and location!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for us with all of the amenities that we needed. The house was located on a marsh in a very quite street. It’s location is perfect if you are touring the islands or Savannah. We toured both and loved them. The owners were available and check in on us to make sure we had a great expierience and if we needed anything.

We discovered that there was a place to get fresh seafood walking distance from the house.

Overall we were more than satisfied with our stay. Will definitely book here again!

Incredibly Beautiful & Well Maintained!

  • 5 of 5

Our recent stay at this property near Darien, GA was one of our best experiences ever. It was quiet and off the main roads -- but close enough to towns and attractions to provide us with many options and sites to see during the days. The home was so beautiful and had everything our family needed. All we had to bring was or food. It is modern and spacious and extremely comfortable. The owners were accommodating and offered good advice on things to do.

The home itself offers three spacious bedrooms with a king suite upstairs, and two additional bedrooms downstairs (one with a queen bed and one with a full). My wife and I enjoyed early morning coffee outside on the rear deck and evenings talks as we watched the sun set over the trees and the marsh in the back yard.

We had so much fun fishing and shopping and sightseeing that we have decided to make this home a regular part of our annual vacation experiences. We are already making plans to return soon.
