About the property

Walk to the Beach, 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.

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.

Not quite up to par at this price level

  • 3 of 5

The view and the location were wonderful. It was very nice having the loft for kids. But, there was lots of riding up and down on a very slow elevator because the unit is on the upper floor. There were too many old rugs on the floor, which created a tripping hazard. The mattresses seemed old and worn out and were uncomfortable for sure. The gas stove top was hard to ignite and the A/C filters seemed dirty. Access to the beach was difficult directly from the property because of having to climb over very large rocks.

Wonderful beach home

  • 5 of 5

We were six seniors who spent a week at this terrific penthouse at High Tide. We had the top two floors. What a fantastic open and roomy lay-out. Everyone had there own bedroom with the exception of two who we call our queen and princess who always share the master suite. Three bedrooms down with bath, and two bedrooms upstairs who share a bath. When upstairs, it was so nice and quiet for sleeping. We enjoyed the backyard sunning in the lounge chairs, and we loved walking the beach. It was a 10 minute walk to village with shops and restaurants. The view from the outside deck was awesome, and it was fun seeing the big cargo ships pass through the channel coming from Jekyll Island. Kitchen was well stocked except for one good fry pan (we bought one). Only drawback was a small elevator to get to 4th floor because of three gals being claustrophobic. The rest of us walked the four flights everyday. It was good exercise. We definitely would rent this wonderful penthouse again. Loved the stay there, and St. Simons .
