About the property

Welcome to The Fig House! We hope you love this house as much as we do. The way we live and travel with friends is the inspiration for the interior and exterior design of this house.

The Fig House is a newly renovated mid-century modern located in the Kelvin Grove neighborhood next to Bloody Marsh. Clean lines, open living floor plan and carefully designed outdoor living spaces make this house a one of a kind for the area. Follow the house on instagram @thefighousessi for more photos!

Living Room/Dining Room:

The living room is designed to entertain a group of adults or perfect for kids. With two sofas, two club chairs, a window bench seat and a wood burning fireplace, it is the perfect place to entertain, watch a movie, or cozy up and read a book. The dining area connects the living and kitchen and seats 8. A large window faces one of the most amazing live oaks on the island. Plenty of natural light fills this space.


The kitchen is spacious with clean lines and is connected to the sunroom and the sitting room. A small breakfast table is located in the kitchen - perfect for lunch or a kids table. You have a view of the pool which is great when you are cooking dinner and friends or kids are in the pool courtyard or the sunroom.

Sitting Room:

The sitting room is connected to the kitchen and has a daybed and two club chairs. An arm chair sits in the corner next to a bar cart and has a tv that can be viewed from the sitting and kitchen area.

Sun Room:

The sun room sits off the kitchen and is the only access to the pool courtyard. This room as a combination dining table/pool table/ ping pong table and has a tv. This space is an extension of the courtyard and has a curated plant collection.

Master Bedrooms (2):

Most of the time we travel with friends and have the kids in tow. We decided to make two masters so everyone feels comfortable! Each room has a king bed, chair, black out curtains and a closet. One master faces the pool courtyard and the other a red cedar hedge.

Bunk Room:

Perfect for kids or a big group, this room has two bunk beds and looks out over the pool courtyard.

Bathrooms (2):

One large bathroom is spacious and includes a stand up shower. This bathroom is shared with the living space for guests. The second bath has a shower tub combo and is located in the hall across from the bunk room and near the other master.

Front Yard:

The front has one of the most amazing live oaks on the island. There is a very special limb that arches over the drive and touches the ground. Please be mindful when you arrive and know that oversized vehicles or suv’s with racks or boxes will need to use the Cater street entrance. The limb is lit so you can see it at night. A kids swing hangs from another cool limb on the tree.

Pool Courtyard:

This is a private space that is lined in bamboo and huge tree ligustrums. The pool has a 12” raised beam so you have to step up and down before you enter the pool. Three sides of the pool have 2’x2’ cast stone pavers set in a limerock and granite loose pebble mixture. We have 4 chaise lounges facing the pool and a farm table for dining. There is a great live oak in the courtyard that is lit at night. The pool can be heated. This is a great space for entertaining or making family memories.


We have a large tv over the fireplace and one in the sitting area that can be viewed from the kitchen. We also have one out in the sunroom. We do not have tv’s in the bedroom.


We have young children and so do most of our friends so we know what traveling is like with young ones. We have a kids closet that is full of all of the day to day items one would need for little ones. We have toys, books, high chair, plastic plates, sippy cups, and a small kids table that can be pulled out for your stay. A pack n play is available upon request. We have two swings that are great for kids. One is located in the front yard and one out back. While the house is very kid friendly, if you don't have kids, don't let that turn you off! The decor is very neutral - even the bunk room!


Kelvin Grove is located off Old Demere next to Bloody Marsh. The neighborhood has only one entrance so there is no through traffic. It is an active neighborhood with kids and homeowners out walking dogs and visiting. It is also a family neighborhood so please treat the house and the neighborhood like you would your own.

About The Owner

My husband grew up on Saint Simons Island and I moved here in 2001. We love living on Saint Simons. It has a very strong sense of community which is different than other beach towns. I am the co-owner of The Vine Garden Market so you will definitely see #vinelove all over The Fig House.

Why The Owner chose Saint Simons Heights

We fell in love with this house years ago when we bought our house in Kelvin Grove. The opportunity came up in 2016 for us to purchase the property and we could not pass it up. We have two young kids and usually travel with friends and their kids so a good floor plan and kid friendly environment was the inspiration for this house. We live inside and out and it was important to us for visitors to be able to do the same.

average rating of 5.0 based on 9 reviews

We stayed here with our son, his wife and their 6 month old daughter.

The house is very livable with lots of space, kitchen is well appointed, and the pool is delightful.

Easy walk to some good restaurants and easy drive to downtown.

The neighborhood is quiet and beautiful.

Charming home in a perfect location!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 8 stayed in this wonderful house for a wedding weekend in early March. The owner was incredibly accommodating of some of my extra needs and made it so easy to plan an event from 100s of miles away. It has great living spaces that are both comfortable but also aesthetically pleasing. The private backyard patio was the perfect place for a small family party I threw situated around the heated pool that my college boys took full advantage of!

We could get to the beach for a walk, to the village for the rehearsal dinner and to great shopping centers all within minutes.

I would return to St. Simons Island and stay in the Fig House again tomorrow if I could!!!!

Long weekend at the Fig House

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at The Fig House in February. We had a long weekend off from work

and needed a gateway. We found everything just like it listed on the internet site VRBO.Com

All linens, towels, and kitchen ware were clean and awaiting our arrival. Our two grandsons enjoyed the heated pool and the adults joined in playing ping pong and shooting pool. The arrival and departure are very easy, as they have a key lock box which makes it easier than having to go to real estate office for key pick up & check out. We are planning to go back and hope this house is available.

Un univers où l'on se sent à l'aise

  • 5 of 5

On sent l'attention toute particulière consacrée à la décoration et aux énergies de chaque pièce , le salon vaste avec ses nombreuses assises.. les chambres claires , gaies, modernes. L'espace cuisine fonctionnel. Un espace repos bibliothèque au centre de la maison.La piscine chauffable est dans un écrin de verdure qui est aussi la signature de la maison (plantes vertes , chêne séculaire ,jasmin confédéré etc...) un espace jeu avec table de billard /ping pong ne font qu'ajouter au plaisir de passer du bon temps avec amis Et ou famille. À recommander pour sa situation

We want to stay forever

  • 5 of 5

One full week at The Fig House made us feel like the better version of ourselves !

An easy and fun configuration, it offers gathering spots as well as private nooks for everyone, which is amazing when you travel with the whole clan. My 2 years old LOVED the pool and the bunk room, my mom was stationed in the day bed right off the open floor kitchen with designers books from the fig house library, and my dad and I finally figured out who mastered who at the ping pong table !

The location is perfect : the neighborhood feels homely and safe, we had brought our bikes and it was fun to end dinner with a bike ride. It takes only 5 min to ride to East Beach, to the supermarket or the local hang out : Gnat's landing bar and grill.

The house is completely styled for an easy, fun, upbeat and modern family lifestyle and made us want to stay forever, jumping in the heated pool after putting the kiddo to bed and sinking in the comfy couches in front of favorite shows. We also loved watching games directly in the game room while wiping up cocktails (the kitchen has everything you need) and roasting oysters on the grill.

Bedding is new, clean and fresh, the bedrooms comfortable and spacious. The backyard and front yard are fully landscaped and offered hipster and tropical privacy.

Finally, Bryce the owner is the sweetest islander you will ever met, was readily happy to answer all our questions and making us feel like home.

book it, I'll go again :)
