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 St Simons Island

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!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely home that allows you to spread out with the extra bedroom suite off the upstairs deck. The large hot tub outside was enjoyed by all during the colder weather that we experienced this March,. We would come back from our walks at the beach or down to the village and warm it up so that we could relax and spend as much time as possible outside. Our dogs even enjoyed all the space this house provides. Can’t wait to teturn to St. Simons next year!

Great Space / Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 4 couples spent 4 nights at the "cottage" - a local term for a fine home near the water. As with all our many VRBO experiences, the cottage did not disappoint us and Jennifer, our host, was fantastic.

The property is within easy walking to the Lighthouse, Visitors Center, the beach and the town center. Although St. Simons is very well developed, the town center retains its charm and connections to the past.

The interior of the house matches the life-style of the island - casual, comfortable but stylish.

The master suite is very spacious while the 2 bedrooms in the main house are a bit tight but very comfortable. The adjoining guest house worked great as well.

We spent a lot of time on the front porch enjoying the balmy weather in mid-October. The spa and pool are immaculate and easy to enjoy.

While the ladies toured the many historical locations, the guys sampled the local golf scene at Sea Palms and King & Prince. The spouses thought the Island as well as Jeckell deserved a return visit. If this were to happen, we would definitely come back to the cottage.

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!
