Overview

About the property

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

UPDATE: We have added big new premium HD TVs with HD service and upgraded the whole experience - better-than-hotel sheets, down pillows/comforters, better porch/pool furniture, upgraded kitchen plus a lot more!

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.

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 Saint Simons Island

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!

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.

Beautiful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved my stay at Sassy Peach!! The kitchen is huge and open making it super cozy for family meals and the rooms are so beautifully decorated.. a person hardly wants to leave the house! However.. moo cow (a local ice cream store just a five minute walk from the house) seemed to have the habit of mooing my name! My family and I found ourselves taking nightly walks to the village to enjoy the cute stores, the beautiful pier, and I'll admit.. lots of ice cream:)) sassy peach will forever be my favorite Vaca spot.. can't wait to go back and enjoy more late night swims, daily beach adventures, mossy tree photoshoots, and ice cream on the pier. Sassy peach, I'll be back!!

Wonderful vacation at Sassy Peach!

  • 5 of 5

Pet friendly Sassy Peach! The name conjures up fun, and what fun we had in that beautifully decorated, spacious, very clean home. Yes, I say home, because you feel right at home because everything you need is right there at your fingertips. We had five different groups there with plenty of comfortable bedrooms for all. The kitchen and living room readily accommodates many guests, but yet when everyone is in their bedrooms there is plenty of peace and quiet. There is a beautiful pool in the backyard. The village, pier, lovely park with lots of Spanish moss, and the beach are within easy walking distance. There is lots of history in the area and as you sit in the rocker on the porch, sipping your Mimosa, you can almost drift back to a time that was the Old South.

Amazing house and location!!!

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Sassy Peach is one of the best travel experiences I've ever had! JD and Tracy were very communicative, answering all my questions. Exactly as it says on the site, it could not be better located, walkable to the downtown area and the pier and the beach. Living room, bedrooms and kitchen were all large, comfortable and well equipped. The pool was gorgeous and cool, perfect for summer weather, such a huge plus!

Amazing St. Simons Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This vacation home went above and beyond my expectations in every way!

The owner was easy to work with and it was apparent they put care into the attention to detail with this property. I loved the private pool and all of the porch spaces. Every room was clean with fun accent decorations. This house was also a short walking distance from all of the shops and restaurants near the lighthouse, and just a short trip from the beach. I would absolutely recommend this house to anyone wishing to make the most of their stay in St. Simons Island!

Best value for money on Saint Simons Island!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Sassy Peach Cottage rocks! We had the most marvelous time with our extended family (who doesn’t like in-laws) and ‘significant others’ to teenagers (who doesn’t like teenagers). The best thing about the house was the fact there were so many areas for groups of people to get away … porches, floors, rooms … as well as a huge common area (usually the pool) on the first floor with a killer TV and an amazing dining table and kitchen for everyone to gather round.

The village is a very short walk and there is so much to do that everyone had an amazing time.

Would highly recommend to any group of family or friends who want to have a premium Saint Simons experience.
