Come experience THE EMBASEA on beautiful East Beach, St. Simons Island, GA. Walk out the front door and directly onto the 11th St beach path. Bring your family or friends and relax at the Embasea; you will want to make it your vacation spot year after year.
The Embasea welcomes you with gorgeous live oaks and gas lanterns. The tabby construction invokes a historic beach house but with all modern amenities.
An elevator makes moving in a snap.
The corner beach lot allows for front and side parking. There is a huge three car garage with ample room for all of your bikes and beach toys or it can be used as an indoor skating rink or bike track for the kids on a rainy day. On the back side of the house, there is a private pool and deck area for you and your guests to enjoy when you need a break from the beach.
Inside, you will first notice the beautiful 300 year old heart pine floors. The main living area includes a family room with a plasma television, integrated stereo system, game table, piano, fireplace. The dining area has an oversized farm table with seating for 10 comfortably as well as four additional stools at the granite top breakfast bar. The open floor plan promotes a totally relaxed atmosphere to enjoy with your family/friends.
The kitchen is a chef's dream with everything needed to serve a crowd. From this main living area there are French doors which open up to a large screen porch with outdoor living and dining areas. Finally, there is a powder room and a laundry room with storage and an extra refrigerator.
This main level has a bedroom with a queen size bed, large walk-in closet and full private bath. This room is perfect for those guests that don't want to stay on the upper bedroom level.
Also on the main level is a large study with trundle beds that can serve as an extra (6th) bedroom. It is great place for kids to watch their videos on the flat panel LCD television or you can use the desk with high-speed internet connection to catch up on your e-mails.
The third floor has four bedrooms each with its own private full bath. All four upstairs bedrooms have king size beds. Every room in The EmbaSea has plenty of closet space and its own TV/DVD player. There is also a second laundry on this floor.
The master suite features a huge walk-in closet large enough for a crib or pack & play and a gorgeous bathroom with a jacuzzi tub, his and her vanity and large double headed shower with seamless glass walls. The master and one other bedroom on this level have French doors that open up to a private deck with access to the widow's walk on the roof and the pool below.
The 16'x40' widow's walk on the roof of the home boasts an amazing view up and down the beach. It is a great place to sunbathe or enjoy a cocktail at sunset as you listen to the ocean or the integrated stereo system.
The pool area is very private with tropical landscaping. The pool includes a shelf for kids to play on or adult lounging. There is an outdoor hot/cold shower and a half bath in the garage so you don't have to go upstairs.
As you leave The EmbaSea, you are only steps from the white sand beaches of St. Simons Island or a short ride to a myriad of restaurants, bars, shopping or family activities.

About Kacy and Matt McKenna
We live in Houston, Texas but are native Georgians. We are in the process of retiring and relocating to Macon, GA - Matt's hometown. We have restored a 110 year old house there and look forward to living close to St. Simons so we can go visit often.
Why Kacy and Matt McKenna chose St Simons Island
What we hear over and over is that our pictures do not do the house and location justice. We are one of the closest houses to the beach in all of East Beach because the 11th Street path is very short. If you look at a map of East Beach you will see that some of the paths (3rd St, 5th St for example) are quite a hike to reach the beach. Our beach path is really short

Embasea on St Simon's
We loved this house; it was everything and more that we expected. The hosts are considerate of their guests and respond quickly to questions and send workers, if anything needs attention in the house. The people renting it with us also loved living here for the week - it is super close to the beach, the neighborhood is lovely to walk in, the house is very beautiful.
The EmbaSea is an amazing home that surpassed all of our expectations!
Our extended family decided at the last minute to try to get together for Thanksgiving. We were so fortunate that this home became available and was centrally located so that no one needed to drive more than 6 hours to get there. What was truly impressive besides the open layout, numerous decks, several bedrooms with private bathrooms and location near the beach, was the fully equipped kitchen which allowed us to have a Thanksgiving dinner for a large group with everything needed to entertain such a large gathering. Also, the elevator made navigating the house possible for our older guests. The hosts were so helpful and responded immediately to any questions we had prior to our arrival. We all agreed that we would love to return soon and make this a family tradition.
The amenities and proximity to the beach were wonderful and our trip was so relaxing! We loved the roof deck at night and during the day. The bedrooms were so spacious and comfortable. We would definitely recommend this home for a relaxing vacation and walking distance to the ocean!
Beautiful home close to the beach!
This home is perfect for a large family. We absolutely loved the private tree covered pathway to the beach. The stairs leading up to the roof top deck were a bit scary but the view was worth the climb. There are so many wonderful amenities including 6 bikes! Absolutely loved everything about this beautiful home and charming island. We can't wait to return.
