About the property

On the Beach, Walk to Pier & Village or Relax on the Porch Watching Sunsets

The High Tide Penthouse is a 5 bedroom - 4.5 bath oceanfront condo that offers not only sweeping views of the ocean but a prime location as well. This condo is located on a low-tide beach and has a private lawn out front for tanning, grilling and dining al fresco. If you tire of lounging on the porches or walking along the beach, a short 10 minute walk will find you at the village where you can enjoy a number of restaurants and take a stroll down the pier and try to spot a big catch being reeled in! A walk in the opposite direction will take you to the famous island restaurant duo Crab Daddy's & Crab Trap.

The Penthouse at High Tide is a two-story condo. The first floor of this unit is home to two guest rooms with private baths, a dining area, kitchen and large family room as well as the master suite. (All 3 bedrooms on the main floor have King beds and private baths) Just off of the family room you will find the porch with views overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, St. Simons Sound, and Jekyll Island. This expansive porch is the perfect spot to enjoy the ocean breeze and watch gorgeous sunsets.

Upstairs, there are two additional bedrooms and a full bath. One of the bedrooms has a queen sized bed and the other has two twin sized beds. There's also a large bonus upstairs- the perfect place for kids to hang out!

All bedrooms are equipped with flat screen televisions and the house is Wi-Fi enabled.

The High Tide complex is a 3 unit ocean front condominium with separate entrances and porches for each unit. The Penthouse is a great stand alone unit, but can be combined with adjoining Unit A ( VRBO # 708611) and Unit B ( VRBO #708618) to accommodate multiple families while allowing for greater privacy. All units are ocean facing. No other property on the island offers this level of flexibility!

Parking: The Penthouse rental includes TWO parking spaces only. There is limited street parking as well as public parking, but it cannot be guaranteed.

The perfect home by the sea!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a chilly long weekend on SSI and couldn’t have felt more spoiled or at home in the Penthouse. From the beautiful cozy living room to the spacious master bedroom with views and sounds of the ocean below, this was truly our best experience on SSI yet. Enjoying coffee each morning basking in the sun on the balcony overlooking the beach was such a treat. A spectacular property and outstanding rental experience. We only wish we could’ve stayed longer!

Wonderful, relaxing getaway retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We spent Christmas week with 9 family members and had a wonderful time. The house was very comfortable for 9. Seating for more than 9 might be difficult at mealtime, as we had just enough chairs/stools. Other than that, all furniture, bed, etc. were top quality. My father-in-law and I used the elevator, which was a pleasure for those of us with difficulty making it up several flights at a time. Some of the highlights were playing bocce on the beach, doing a 'polar plunge' on Christmas day, taking walks (downtown/lighthouse/museum all a short walk away), dinner at Crabdaddy's and the Mellow Mushroom (check out their outdoor seating, very cool), visits to Fort Frederica and Christ Episcopal Church, as well as the Sea Turtle sanctuary on Jekyll island. 2 of us also played golf several times while on the island. We also visited Brunswick but felt that it was didn't offer too much. This rental was time and money well spent!

Ideal beach condo

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our parent’s 70th birthdays here. It suited our group perfectly. The view was amazing! Beds were very comfortable, kitchen was well supplied for our Thanksgiving dinner, beach accessibility was great (we didn’t have trouble with the rocks as there is a staircase just steps away too), location is top notch; easy walk to town and also two great parks. Overall, it was close to perfection. We would have liked a larger tv to watch sports, but can’t complain about that on vacation. We hope to come back and recommend this spot!!

Wonderful Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Seven high school friends spent a long girls weekend get away at this lovely home. We enjoyed having the two floors atop, and found the unit to be very roomy and open. We could spend time together or spread out.

Only difficulty we had is that Hurricane Irma decided to cause us to shorten our visit and limit sightseeing. However, we were able to enjoy the outside of several sides and made a visit to the Georgia Sea Turtle before the turtles were evacuated to avoid being in the storm.

We enjoyed walking the beach, and a few of the gals enjoyed floating in the ocean. We did not find getting over the rocks to the beach to be difficult. However, we struggled a bit until we got the hang of working the elevator. It is a great location that is very close to downtown.

Sitting on the outside deck enjoying conversation and the ocean were great experiences. The view is breathtaking. We found the beds to be very comfortable.

Heather was very responsive when we had questions.

Would enjoy coming back when we could enjoy more that this quaint island has to offer. This vacation spot offers a lot of southern charm.

Wonderful for teenage kids and grandparents!

  • 5 of 5

Beachfront and an elevator made this vacation easy and fun for all ages. It was a warm week so beachgoers could come and go as they pleased. Nights afforded a short walk in town for dinner and ice cream. Kitchen was fully loaded for family meal prep and all rooms were very comfortable with new mattresses. Our boys really enjoyed their space on the top floor and the second fridge was very handy. We look forward to our next trip and will choose the Penthouse again.

Wonderful property in great shape, clearly well managed. Beautiful view, great central location on the island and big, could easily accommodate most multi-generational families. An A+ rental. Worth the price. The only way it could be better is with a way to dispose of recyclables.
