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 cottage 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 to relax in too!

What makes this cottage 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!

We had such a great week! The house was perfect and the backyard was like our own little oasis.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Hurricane Irma blew in

  • 1 of 5

There was a mandatory evacuation of St Simon Island, so we didn't get to go. We had purchased cancellation insurance, so we'll get a full refund. Everyone, from the owner, VRBO, and CSA Ins have been helpful up to this point. Thank you

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.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry there were issues with the internet service/wi-fi. We don't usually have any issues with Comcast on the island but i will check in to it. Hope to see you back again soon. Linda

Awesome Family VK

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this residence was all that was presented and more than expected. The process and communications for our stay was so easy and appreciate the flexibility to allow our family access to the home with all travel arrangements. The location of the home is the best on St Simons. This home is conveniently located to access the Kings Way shops/restaurants and an easy bike ride to all beaches. We became spoiled by having a private pool and the fenced backyard was great for our grandson to run off all his energies in the afternoons. We are counting on coming back to this home for our next family vacation! We enjoyed doing day trips to Jekyll Island and the Ga Turtle Center is a must visit. Having a large and open kitchen was awesome and we had some of our best times and meals in the home.

Recommend this home for any extended family vacation or stay.

We really enjoyed having dinner at Crab Daddy’s; which is in easy walking/biking distance and suggest Two Brother’s Bike Shop in Kings Way to rent bikes for your stay.

We have rented many homes for our family vacations and this island home rate’s as one of our best ever! Thank you Linda and Paul for making our week on St Simons so special!
