About Jennifer Chandler

Hello, we are the Ward's! We have two grown daughters who are both married with children. Kimberly lives in Macon Ga with her husband Wade and daughter Banks and Jennifer resides in Birmingham AL with her husband Alan and twins, Emy and Mac. We live in Macon where I was raised and where we raised our children. Both of our children are graduates from UGA and we are full fledged Bulldog fans!

Jennifer Chandler purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Jennifer Chandler chose Coastal

Growing up in Macon GA, our family vacationed in St. Simons Island ever since I can remember. My grandmother lived on the island for many years and was a real estate broker with Parker & Kaufman. St. Simons Island has always been a home away from home for our family and we have always dreamed of owning our own home on the island.

The first time we laid our eyes on the Cottages at Live Oak, we knew this was the home for our growing family! Our grandchildren love their visits to SSI, just as our children did and the memories we have already created are irreplaceable!

The pool and hot tub were a must! As much as we all enjoy days at the beach, it is nice having the option of late afternoon swims and relaxing in the heated whirlpool. The location of 16 Live Oak could not be more perfect. We walk to the village for breakfast in the mornings and we walk to the pier in the evenings. The village area is our family's favorite place! It's a great place to walk in and out of quaint shops, dine at family owned restaurants, eat the best ice cream and sweets and our family favorite, walking on the pier and watching families crabbing or fishing. The views of Jekyll and Cumberland Island are beautiful from the pier and you always see amazing wildlife!

The beach is within walking distance of our cottage or makes for a great bike ride for sight seeing along the way! Our favorite part of the beach is East Beach. Many times because of the unique tides the island is known for, there are large sandbars right off of the shore or tidal pools on the beach. Our grandchildren will spend all day in the tidal pools chasing small fish and collecting sand dollars!

What makes this cottage unique

The design of the home is an open concept with vaulted ceilings allowing for families to gather comfortably.

The downstairs expansive master bedroom and reading nook, allows for privacy and comfort. We invested in a Sterns & Foster pillow top mattress, which sleeps wonderfully! All the bedrooms have custom linens, white matelasse's and down pillows. The kitchen is fully equipped with anything you could ever need. We have a collection of coastal inspired serving pieces that really make you feel at home!

The location of the home is unbeatable! The pool, whirlpool, front porch area and tasteful furnishings are a bonus for anyone on vacation!

Excellent house and location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house! It was beautiful and comfortable with lots of room and close to both the beach and the village. We took morning and evening walks to both. We were able to bring our two dogs which made our vacation even better. The beaches allowed dogs in the evening, so it was perfect to walk them there and let them burn some energy! The pool at the house was also perfect for our family. Jennifer was great to work with. We had a small maintenance issue come up but Jennifer responded quickly and it was handled really well. Jennifer went above and beyond to make sure that our stay was great and we weren't inconvenienced. I am only even mentioning this because that is always a worry when you rent somewhere, but you can rest easy that if anything comes up, she will make sure it is taken care of. We loved staying here and will definitely be back!!

Loved the cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time. The kitchen was wel equipped and we definitely enjoyed the pool and outdoor space. The only things I would request would be to work on a way to make the upstairs cool off better- it was significantly warmer and there wAs just one unit for the main house. We went and purchased a few fans to help with the airflow in the upstairs bedrooms. Would love it if the mattresses upstairs were a little better also. I ended up moving downstairs and staying in master with my mom. The space for parking was perfect since we had three vehicles. We were certainly grateful it was pet friendly! Our pooches had a great time going to the beach every morning. Would definitely consider renting again!

Great House

  • 4 of 5

This a great, well-equipped house in a good location on SSI. The house is very comfortable and nicely decorated. We had a group of 5 adult friends and 2 small dogs and there was more than enough room for everyone. We were able to walk to town and the beach and used the boat launch near the bridge to the island. This was our first visit to the island and we enjoyed the family atmosphere and its overall size-not too small and not too big. If we return to SSI, we will consider staying at the house again.

A wonderful home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 16 Live Oak. The house itself is excellent: Spacious, bright and airy, very clean (no pet odors or stains) and well-stocked. We especially liked the fact that the owners allowed us to bring our Springer Spaniel, and that there was a fenced rear area around the pool that she could roam around in. The entire complex is dog-friendly, which is nice as well, so that we weren't self-conscious about the occasional bark. Jennifer was great to work with --- very prompt and accommodating. The location of the house was also great. It's an easy walk to the village and to the beach, both about a half-mile away. Getting there is a nice stroll through neighborhoods with tree-lined streets, so you're in the shade most of the way. There's also a large pet-friendly park just a few blocks away, just off of Demere Way. We were able to leave the car parked for most of our trip and walk everywhere, and at the end of each walk, the spa was a nice way to relax. We would highly recommend 16 Live Oak.

Nice house. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

5 min walk to beach a tad longer to the village, but both walks through great neighborhoods and parks. House is just as pictured. It was just the two of us but we had several sets of guests that all enjoyed the house as much as we did. Jennifer is a very responsive and caring owner. We recommend this house.

Perfect family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been more pleased with this fantastic house. The location was perfect for our needs, we rented bikes and road everywhere we wanted to go. All of the rooms are nicely decorated and had a cozy beach cottage feel. The dining area is roomy enough that we could all eat together and the kitchen is spacious so multiple people can be cooking or cleaning up together. Would definitely rent again.
