About the property

All the convenience of the village with an abundance of space and a huge pool

We highly recommend you catch the Sassy Peach spirit and get transported to relaxing Island time. Wake up and enjoy breakfast on your private porch. Stroll over to the beaches, pier or Neptune park under the canopy of the Spanish moss covered live oaks.

You and your friends can enjoy splashing in the (heated) pool. Or mosey over to nearby … beaches. We provide all the fun beach essentials.

In the evening, walk over to one of the Village’s many fine eateries or put everyone to work in the huge fully equipped kitchen, cooking up Low Country Boil for the entire clan! For dessert hop and skip over to Moo Cow, the best ice cream on the island, just a stone’s throw away.

Sassy Peach Cottage melds charm and space: 5 Bedroom/5 Bathroom (featuring two master suites), gourmet kitchen, amazing great room where the whole family can gather. There is also plenty of space for separate activities, send the kids to the 3rd story suite. The third floor suite has a family room with TV/fridge/microwave/games. All three levels boast private porches with ceiling fans.

It is sooooo easy to relax, slow down and smell the azaleas on Island time.

What is "Island Time," you might be thinking. Island Time is that that singular wink in time when your soul knows paradise is found. You know you’ve (inexorably and for the moment) left the rat race behind. You wake up to the soothing sounds of the surf and birds singing, rather than at the shrill shriek of an alarm clock. On Island Time everything is more vivid: food tastes better, laughs ring heartier, and time slows down to an enjoyable molasses-like drip, drip, drip. The experience of Island Time on Saint Simons Island is the open secret (shhhhhhh) that will keep bringing you back year after year (like it does us).

About JD and Tracy Howard

We, Tracy and JD, have moved back to Brunswick after our peripatetic ways. We now make grand plans for world peace and saving whales. We are both Southern bred. I'm a proud Volunteer in a family of Bulldogs. Tracy is not as enamored with SEC sports as I am. Tracy is the architect of the classy Sassy Peach style. Inviting, fun and above all, relaxing. If you are a long time SSI denizen or a newbee we would be happy to give you tips on how to make your stay at Sassy Peach more enjoyable and memorable. Just drop us a line.

JD and Tracy Howard purchased this house in 2013

Why JD and Tracy Howard chose Coastal

We bought the Sassy Peach in 2013. We had been looking for a place to house our rather large extended family on short sojourns back to the US. Thus, it is decorated with love. We hope that you enjoy it as much as our family does ...

What makes this house unique

The best part about Sassy Peach is its versatility. There are many distinct areas for people to get away by themselves: the living room downstairs, any one of the three porches, the den upstairs, the sitting room in the master, etc. There is also big spaces for everyone to congregate over a meal (big kitchen means lots of chefs CAN be in the kitchen at once) or by the pool. The pool REALLY cools you off in those hot summer days or nights. In the winter it can be heated (which is awesome!)

You can bee-bop over to Mow Cow for the amazing and sometimes strangely flavored ice cream. The village is a stones throw away. Shop, eat, go for a stroll by the light house to the pier at night. It really is amazing and fun.

If the beach is your calling, east beach is a short hop away or you can mosey over the tide contingent beaches up past Demere.

The house smells good, feels good and is a great place to make lasting memories for you and your family!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The whole family totally enjoyed our stay at the Sassy Peach. The home had plenty of room for our 9 member family. The dining room table was large enough to play cards and games at the end of a day. The pool was a big hit with the kids. After a of day sightseeing, we almost couldn't get the kids out of the pool. The house is located close (walking distance) to the light house and the town. There were plenty of restaurants in walking distance. We would recommend the house to any family that require lots of space.

We thoroughly enjoyed our first stay at Sassy Peach! The home and its location are perfect for us. The owners were very easy to work with and responded quickly to phone calls/emails. Look forward to hopefully enjoying Sassy Peach many times in the future!

Gorgeous vacation home in a magical place

  • 5 of 5

Sassy Peach is an amazing vacation home. It offers so much space, privacy, and is truly gorgeous. The pictures don’t convey how lovely it is! It really looks like a magazine. The location is perfect. We loved that the village is such a short walk away. You can park your car and just walk or ride bikes all week. We had a large extended family in three different homes, but Sassy Peach was the place we’d meet up every night for dinner and to swim in the pool because of the large dining table, roomy kitchen, and overall space. One of the homes is Salty Kiss (VRBO Listing #672347), which has the same owners (and equally beautiful decor), and is super close to a large beach. Sharing a house with your larger extended family can be tricky (ha! especially when you want to have a relaxing vacation), but this home has rooms spread out over three floors so you can have privacy and some separation when you want it. The kids loved the top floor space with its cute staircase and having a place to hang out all to themselves. Meanwhile, we could be in the 2nd floor master sitting area or downstairs on the comfortable living room sofa. We all loved playing together in the pool at night after dinner. Dessert was most often ice cream at Moo Cow, which is practically around the corner. The home really does have everything you need and was just an ideal vacation spot. This was my first visit to St. Simons Island and I fell in love. We really hope to stay at Sassy Peach every year!

Great experience, amazing place, pool, village, the works!

  • 5 of 5

We had a big group and I think everyone had a spectacular time. The kids swam in the pool morning, noon and night. The beach was close by and we loved our beach time. The village is very short walk away and we loved Iguanas. Peel 'n eat shrimp to die for. Walking on the pier at night was an adventure. Moo cow ice cream. Delicious. Anyway, we would stay again and recommend this place to anyone who wants the best Saint Simons experience!

A Dream Come True on An Exquisite Island- SASSY PEACH was amazing

  • 5 of 5

I had no idea what to expect when I found this gem. My whole family stayed here under one roof and and I was worried about privacy for us all. But SASSY PEACH WAS PERFECT. THREE stories with living quarters on all three levels with high ceilings and beautiful upgraded bathrooms, I don't think anyone complained once in the family.

Nestled back on a gravel road beneath the Spanish moss trees, Sassy Peach is only about a 4 minute walk to beach, walk to town and so accessible on foot, if you don't want to rent a car.

The pool is an L shape in the back and that was a huge hit because if we didn' t feel like going to the beach we had immediate entertainment at Sassy Peach. Also, the dining room table is long seating 8 to 10? And the kitchen is very functional and open for making dinner, and entertaining in

The pictures almost do this place justice. But in person, just like St. Simon's Island, you will find a jewel amidst

one of the prettiest islands on the Southern East Coast of the US.

Car: recommended

Sassy Peach has 3 distinct levels, 2 masters bedrooms, 3 porches and a pool so the best place is to enjoy @ home. If you want to visit the village it is a minute away by foot. Sassy Peach is next to Moo Cow ice cream ... a real treat. Shops in the village, the pier, spanish moss filled parks all minutes away on foot. East Beach is close by for fun in the waves.
