About Linda Drinkwine

Hi there! I live in Atlanta and LOVE St. Simons Island! It's quaint and a great getaway for all ages!The island has a very safe feel to it and has not become commercialized. There is a nice mix of original homes/beach cottages mixed in with beautiful new contemporary homes and there is easy beach access all around the island. I enjoy the slower, more relaxed atmosphere and we like to bike everywhere!

Linda Drinkwine purchased this house in 2006

Why Linda Drinkwine chose Saint Simons Island

My son and I visited the island in 2005 and loved it! So I decided it would be a great vacation spot for us. We think we found the perfect place! Close to the village and beach but with our own private pool and extensive backyard/deck for relaxation!

What makes this house unique

The pool and backyard are awesome! Great to come home from the beach and let the kids play in the pool while the adults grill out or sit on the patio with cocktails! Just added is a mini golf area, hammock, more seating areas outside by the pool. Very relaxing with an ideal location close to the Village, Pier, Lighthouse, restaurants and shops. We love to head into the Village and bike along the water for breakfast/coffee. We often see dolphins along the way!

Pleasant home with phenomenal entertainment areas

  • 5 of 5

My family and I moved abruptly and we decided to rent this home for Christmas. We absolutely loved this home for it's charming areas to entertain (mini golf area and mini pool table) and spread out for family gatherings. There are plenty of utensils, pots and pans, and dishes for a family feast. This place is a must rent for anyone going to SSI. The pictures don't do this home justice.

The owner was extremely nice, helpful, and returned communication rather rapidly.

House was stocked with necessities! Can tell it's a great place when you would rather eat meals in rather than go out. Great house and pool area! Loved everything about this property.

The home exceeded our expectations! It was perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

This gem of a beach home was so welcoming, beautifully decorated, with everything needed for a relaxing time. The kitchen was well-equipped, the beds were comfy, the deck and private yard with a lovely pool--what more could we have wanted. My husband and I have been visiting SSI for years, often with our grandchildren. This time we came with 2 other couples, old friends seeking sun, relaxation, good food, and conversation, in a beautiful setting. We found that and more at 1132 Demere Rd, and we will certainly book again! There was a nice surprise awaiting our arrival, a lovely bottle of wine to enjoy on the deck! Thank you, Linda!

Where we will always stay!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVED this home for our family vacation. We had 8 people with us - 4 adults and 4 preteens. We had PLENTY of space for all of us. The pictures provided here do not do this home the justice it deserves. It was well kept/clean/spacious/gorgeous. Having a pool on the property was a definite plus, as that is the first thing our girls did every morning. We also loved the proximity to shops/the Village/the beach and anything we wanted to do. While I HAVE to give this place a great review...I hope it remains available the next time we want to book! We will stay here every time we visit our in-laws on the island.

A beautifully kept, well equipped cottage with a great swimming pool

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for a week and wanted to stay longer. The set up was perfect, kitchen overlooking the deck and the deck overlooking the pool. Perfect for children playing in the pool whilst the grown-ups eat breakfast on the patio or used the BBQ in the evening. As a result of the fabulous pool, we didn't spend as much time at the beach as normal. We could wall to the beach easily within 10 minutes, even with little walking people! The beach was long, so we visited quite different parts of it over the week. The sea had virtually no surf and was a delight to swim in, the majority of the beach was controlled by lifeguards. The village centre was cute, fantastic ice cream, the shell shop took a lot of pocket money from the children. Good local restaurants. The only draw back to the cottage was the intermittent TV and broadband signal which was frustrating at times. But for the signal issues, this superb cottage would have been 5 star.
