Property description

Barrier island retreat – Barbour Island, Ga
Have you ever dreamed of getting away from the noise and stresses of everyday living?  Then escaping to a private barrier island off the coast of Georgia may be your answer!  This vacation get-away is not your average vacation rental.  It is an unparalleled island paradise!  Located off the Atlantic Coast on the Barbour Island River, the island is approximately half way between historic Savannah, Georgia, and the islands of St. Simons and Jeykll, -offering fantastic day trips for site-seeing.  This 3500-acre private island has only 10 to 12 homes nestled in a maritime forest of large oaks and palms.  There are only a couple of full-time residents on the island, as the others are private retreats,  making this the ultimate escape….you may not see a soul unless you choose.  
This coastal home is a short 10-minute boat ride from the Barbour Island Marina. The Barbour River empties into Sapelo Sound, which separates the south end of St Catherine's Island from the north end of Blackbeard Island. Transportation is provided by boat to the home and the return trip.
For the writer, artist, naturalist, or fisherman, this is the perfect retreat.  This is a “no vehicle” island with only dirt roads and trails meandering throughout the forests, tidal creeks, and ponds.  An electric golf cart and bicycles are provided with the house, so you may ride or if you prefer, walk the island for wildlife viewing and birdwatching and absorb the serenity of this beautiful island.   While there is no beach…there is a large community swimming pool with a large open air covered cabana and bathrooms.  A deep water dock can be used to secure your boat if you choose, and  it is an ideal place to fish, crab, or clean your “catch of the day,” with water, electricity, lights, and a fish cleaning station on the dock.  Ample seating is provided if you wish to languish away your time as you enjoy the breezes, sunsets, or watch as dolphins frolic up and down the river.  
This is a two-story home with a wooded deck entry tucked amid several trees with a large front porch that wraps around to the screened back porch that adjoins the kitchen and allows access to the back area of the home and yard.  Enjoy your morning coffee or afternoon beverage as well as view the occasional boater who may travel past.  This is a three-bedroom, two and half bath home.  The two bedrooms on the main floor have king beds, Dish TV and VCRs in each and attached full baths.  The master bedroom bath has tub/shower combo while the other king bedroom’s attached bath has a shower.  A spiral staircase gives access to the private upstairs bedroom with a trundle bed (2 twin beds), separate attached half bath and also offers access to a large enclosed deck.  A washer/dryer combination is enclosed in the fully equipped kitchen and dining area that seats six.   Everything you would need to spend a week or a month is provided.  Most staples, paper products, beach chairs, rods and tackle, coolers, bicycles, bug sprays, sunscreen, and much, much more.  Anything you may need is there, even a small freezer.   Just bring your clothes, toiletries, and any other special foods or beverages you wish.  There are no shops, stores, or restaurants on the island.  The nearest grocery and beverage center is approximately 18 miles away in the settlement of Eulonia, Georgia..
(runway 150 feet by 2500 feet) or boat in only (one boat trip to and from the island is included in the rates). All other side trips to the mainland are additional with a 24-hour prior notice.
