About Owner / Property Manager

This is our potential retirement house. Some acreage and potential for gardens. Looking to improve shrubs, bushes and flowers on property especially camellias. I grew up in Savannah and love living close but not there. We live in Vermont and love the no-snow aspect of GA. Have family in Savannah.

Owner / Property Manager purchased this house in 2006

Why Owner / Property Manager chose Darien

Something about this property is relaxing. Not too high tech but you can check email. When there, nothing is a "should" but many things are "cans". Sapelo Island, Jekyll Island and Harris Neck are my personal favorites. It is not so close to a beach that you have to don the suit and the sunscreen and go.

What makes this house unique

It is near many things but not so near they become a "must"

Wonderful visit!

  • 4 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay at this house. It was well equipped and had everything we could need, especially the kitchen. We LOVED the town of Darien! The house was being worked on and painted while we were there and the workers did show up early and started working the last morning we were there, but we were getting ready to leave. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!

Loved it!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved it! It was very homey. I would def stay here again. All the linens were top of the line, had everything you needed in the kitchen and plenty of room for my family of 5. It was a little further from the beaches then I would have liked. Make to visit Sapelo Island it was great and Mudcat Charlies for dinner!!

We loved this house! It is comfortable, well decorated and feels like home. The kitchen is huge and has everything one could need. The only complaint was iffy wifi but I understand that is an issue with poor service by the provider rather than the owner. We will be back.
