Overview

About the property

Beautiful 3BR, 3BA ranch home on five acres

Our family homeplace will provide you a great vacation escape. Bring your boat and dock it on the beautiful, clean Satilla River. Swim in the heated pool or fish in the pond. You can even play a few sets of tennis on your own private court or set up a family tournament playing ping-pong! We've recently done some remodeling to make this picturesque home more convenient.

Woodbine is a small Southern coastal Georgia town within an easy drive of Brunswick, GA, St. Simons Island, Jekyll Island, and Amelia Island, FL to the south. There's a cafe uptown that serves lunch on weekdays and a grocery store to meet your needs. The big city of Jacksonville is 45 minutes away, and the airport there is even closer.

This home is ideal for those who want peace and serenity with river access.

Our outdoors campfire area will prove fun on cooler evenings. Roast weenies and marshmallows, sit around the fire, and swap stories. Create memories at Cypress Point!

About Joel and Henry Williams, Camden Williams, LLC

Henry Williams, Sr. and his wife Bebe built their home--Cypress Point--outside of Woodbine, GA in 1959. Current owners are brothers Joel and Henry Williams. The brothers participated in land-clearing, pond-digging, and some brick cleaning during the building. Bricks for the house came from the old Oglethorpe Hotel in Brunswick. It's a family joke that Henry, Sr. was a hard taskmaster, paying the boys 'a penny a brick' for knocking the old mortar off the bricks. In reality, the boys cleaned very few bricks, but the story persists. Joel and Henry sincerely hope that you enjoy your stay at Cypress Point with all its Southern charm and beauty!

Joel and Henry Williams, Camden Williams, LLC purchased this house in 1959

Notes:
This home was built on the site where the ferry for the Old Dixie Highway crossed the Satilla River. The property includes a fixed and floating dock on the River. If you bring a boat, it can be tied to the floating dock. There is a high-tide launching ramp on the property, and a mile away the city has a launching ramp which works on all tides. Bricks for the home exterior came from the old Oglethorpe Hotel in downtown Brunswick.

WOW...NICE!

  • 5 of 5

Southern hospitality out of this world, charming, relaxing, breathtaking, fun and peaceful.

We had a wonderful time and it was so nice. Joel was very friendly and courteous. There is a lot of history in the home and property. It was very clean and well kept. The fishing was nice and just a note to another guest the fish in the river are catfish so if you decide to fish cut some bait for red blood to help draw in the catfish (according to Joel). In the pond at the back of the home there is a baby alligator so don't feed it....Overall, FUN!

There were only two issues that we saw as property owners ourselves and that was the fact there is a leak the front faucet in front of the home near the front door that is dripping, and the old red hand well pump there is a running leak of water. In addition, the master bedroom with the sunroom the doors do not lock and the screen on the sunroom doesn't close properly. Just small things to know as a property owner....Other than that it was so nice and we could not have asked for a better place to spend R & R.....

Thank you again,

Dr. K.

Owner's Response: Thanks much, Dr. K. Also, thank you for mentioning the items that need attention. The joys of home ownership! Always something that can be done better. One note about the red hand pump. The natural pressure from the well pushes a small trickle of water. The good think is the pump does not have to be primed. We actually put that pump there as a novelty for people who might not have seen how it was done in the old days. Thanks again for the kind remarks and hope to see you again soon! Joel.

PERFECT get away spot! I had read all the reviews and was hoping for a really nice place to unwind. It is just so much more. My kiddos ages 28-6 said this was their favorite place to vacation so far.

There is nothing needed that has not been provided - (well your food and sunscreen).

Just 30-40 minutes away from the beach. Amelia Island was not crowded in the evenings and public access was easy to find.

We hope to go back next spring.

Beautiful Home / property

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our week stay, the house was great, the rooms allowed everyone to be together or to be alone if they wanted sometime away. The pool was wonderful and heated perfectly. We really enjoyed the screen in deck/ pool that allowed us to sit outside and not be subjected to pests.

Beautiful, peaceful, great place to spend time with family.

  • 5 of 5

My husband, grandsons and mother in law spent Spring Break 2017 here. The pool, pond, river and tennis court entertained the boys and the adults loved the grounds and comfortable home. Cypress Point is conveniently located so we were able to take our family to visit Jekyll, St. Mary's and Amelia Island. We loved exploring Woodbine and hope to return again and find out even more about this lovely area. The bar-b-que from the local restaurant was delicious and we met the most interesting lady at the seafood place on Harriet's Bluff. All of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: Hi Nita, Your family was tailor made for Cypress Point! The kids seemed to really enjoy the golf cart and the freedom to zip around the property and the town. Thanks for taking such good care of the place and we certainly hope to see you again soon. Joel.

Absolutely Perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely house to celebrate my mother's 90th birthday! From the minute we arrived, the house and property were welcoming. We had beautiful weather and spent most of our time outdoors. Joel was awesome and so friendly and the house had everything we could possible want. The kitchen was fully equipped to do all of our cooking. We BBQ'd some wonderful meals and dined on the outside patio. We played ping pong and went bicycle riding and strolled down to the river. We could not possibly have found any other place as great as Cypress Point. The pictures do not do the home and grounds justice. We will definitely look to return if we're going to be in the area again. Thank you Joel for some great memories!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your kind words, Coleen. It was a joy to have you with us and so glad your family could gather for your Mom's 90th. Maybe you should make it an annual event! Hope to see you again soon. Joel.

If you want a private getaway with all the amenities you can use, Cypress Point is for you! Not only will you have perfect hosts, your stay will be worry free with awesome sunrises coming up through the pines and sunsets over the Satilla River.

Our stay was for most the winter. We enjoyed all Cypress Point has to offer and the little community of Woodbine fit our quiet lifestyle. Within an hour, any direction you can find all kinds of activity. In Woodbine, you will find a relaxed way of living if you want to get away from the busy world.

Joel & Maggie, Henry & Linda, along with Tillie, resident dog, will greet you warmly and see to any need you have.

If you are searching for all inclusive private getaway, book this one fast! We look forward to our return to Cypress Point and the best hosts ever!

Owner's Response: And Glenda, you were the best guests ever! I found Jerry's 6am campfires with coffee and newspaper a most admirable way to start every day; however, not for everyone. So glad you have reserved your return stay. Maggie and I just want you to know that we will remain ready to sample your culinary skills at any time! Hope you have a great Summer in Indiana. Joel.
