Property Details

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Our unit is ideal for children and adults, alike! It is a quiet unit in the back of the complex. The balcony faces the lake and tennis courts and has a view of the back pool. The master suite has a queen-size bed and a private full bathroom. Additional guests have a standard double bed in the second, and twin beds in the third bedroom (all linens provided).

The unit is recently remodeled and redecorated with new furnishings. We also have just had installed new oak pergo flooring. There are two TVs with cable and DVD player.

About the Owner

We live in Illinois and both my husband and I have always lived in the midwest. A common term here is to be a 'snowbird', which is to go south for the winter. So when we retired we decided it was time to join that crowd and so we now have our duplex up north and we come to the island for the winter. We absolutely love it on the island.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We all had a wonderful week at St. Simons Island. Your condo was wonderfully suited for all of us. Paul and Sarah had never experienced a vacation where you played in the ocean all day and we all loved it. We enjoyed crab at the crab trap and barbecue at a little restaurant across the street. We made a couple of trips to the yogi shop. There was a basketball court right outside which Paul played yet in between trips to the beach. Thanks for the use of the condo. It had everything we could imagine. We'd love to come back sometime.

Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5
The description was very accurate, but the condo was better. The owners were very flexible and easy to deal with. After staying in Brunswick for a couple of days we were able to head out to the condo. It was like a whole new world! There was plenty of room for 3 kids and 4 adults. The location was great. We could stay there and play in the pool, the courts, etc. or easily head into town for the water park, beach, and restaurants. My kids wanted to move in forever! Check in and check out was incredibly easy. We loved that it was just far enough away to avoid the crowds, but only a 2 minute drive. Having a toddler would have made even short walks very long. So the pool was just right for walking and the beach just right for driving. We loved Massingale Park, especially in the evening at high tide. It was fun to get to the little island at low tide. And the little barbeque restaurant 1 block down was outstanding!

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5
This condo is truly a gem on St. Simons Island. The property was very clean and had all the amenities a family could need while vacationing (beach toys, towels, games, movies, books, etc....) The kitchen and laundry room is fully stocked with all cooking and washing supplies which makes it perfect for all your needs whether you are washing your towels in between trips to the beach or staying in for a home cooked meal. The rooms are spacious and very well kept. Not only is the condo a hop, skip, and jump from the ocean but there is plenty to do if you want to stay around the property. There are two pools with outdoor kitchenettes and grills (which our children could not get enough of)and are great for getting together and hanging out poolside, tennis courts with basketball hoops and plenty of bicycle paths nearby. There is plenty to discover and explore on St. Simons especially if you like nature and history. The owners have a wealth of knowledge about the island and keep updated brochures in the condo for the guests to read and use. Our teenage son loved the kayak adventure and fishing off the pier. The younger children enjoyed playing at Neptune Park and Pool and of course strolling through the candy, ice cream and souevenir shops. There are plenty of great restaurants with good old southern hospitality and delicious seafood. The lighthouse and Coast Guard Station are fascinating if you enjoy learning about maritime history. Our family was amazed with the low and high tides that can be experienced daily off the beach. The live oak trees are breathtaking and majestic. There really is something for everyone to enjoy! The location, amenities, and comfort of the condo made it easy for our family to taken in all the island has to offer and at the end of the day return to our "home away from home." We will most definately come back to St. Simons and this condo for another vacation in the future.

Great condo

  • 5 of 5
Rented this condo for a girls weekend with my three girlfriends. The condo was perfect for us, very clean, everything we needed, and comfortable. Ocean Walk is very pretty and well maintained. The location was great for the island, very close to the village and walking distance to many restaurants and shopping. Also close to the beach in the village. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their stay. It was very easy renting the condo. You can do everything online. I would highly recommend this vacation rental.

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at this condo for a week with my three boys. It was nicely decorated and had everything we could have possibly needed. The kitchen was better equipped than my own home. The condo community has two pools, tennis court right outside the door and a nice playground. We were able to walk downtown in a matter of minutes where there are lots of great shopping and restaurants. We had a great time and we will be renting this condo again next year.

Disappointing

  • 3 of 5
My family and I rented this condo for a week at the end of April. The owner was nice on the phone and knowledgeable about the area. The problems arose when we got there. I rented this particular place because it boasted of a heated pool and playground on site. Well it did have a playground, but it was so old and dilapidated we were not able to use it. The wooden set was in such disarray that I could not let my children go on it. It was splintering and there was so much debris from the trees surrounding. It definitely posed safety issues as well as being a let down.The heated pool was another disappointment. There was no way that the pool was heated. The temperature outside was in the mid to late seventies and got in to the low eighties one day. The pool was freezing, and for that matter, was the same temperature as the other pool that was not heated. Please also be aware that the realtor managing the property that I had to deal with was downright rude and was no help whatsoever. I would NOT stay in this condo again nor would I recommend it to anyone. The island is beautiful and the accommodations were adequate with the three bedrooms but the amenities were not very impressive and were not what was in the condo description.

Owner's Response: I have spoken with the person writing this review and with the manager of the property.
The manager states that the pool is heated to 85 degrees when the weather is cooler so when the weather drops below that it kicks in. If the surrounding air temperature is close to 85 or above the pool may feel like it is not heated. The playground is small and the wooden set there is older but sturdy. My own young grandchildren were there last summer and enjoyed it and no safety issues were noted at that time. If the playground does not meet the needs of renters there are two larger playgrounds within a half mile and directions can be given. The manager has promised to follow up and investigate the concerns raised in both discussion and in writing.
Clarifacation was made in discussion with the renter that the condo itself was as described and it more than met their family's needs.

Location

From the Owner

I first visited the island in 2001 and fell in love with it. I love the beaches and the live oak trees with the spanish moss cascading down. I especially like where we are located as it is a short walk to the village where there is a lot of activity going on. It is also very close to the beaches. And there is a lot of open, green space in the Ocean Walk complex where you can sit overlooking the ponder on in a rocker on the porch which also overlooks the pond. Also the people we have met there are friendly and welcoming. A great place to be.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Jacksonville Florida at 75 Miles Nearest Beach : East Beach at 1 Miles Car: necessary

St Simons Island has now been rated #3 of the 10 best American Islands to vacation on. (do search on America's 10 best islands). So come and see why. We are just a short walk from the pier, village, and beach. There the children can play at Neptune park as you watch the dolphins play. At the pier you can crab, fish,or watch the ships coming and going, see gorgeious sunsets and meet some of the friendly people in town. You can also walk the beach if the tide is out. There are two other beach access areas within 1-2 miles of our condo.The island has a new water park near the lighthouse and a new playground area for the young ones to enjoy. There is so much to do on the island or nearby. Just a few points of interest on the island include the location of the Battle of Bloody Marsh, Saint Simons Lighthouse, Fort Fredrica and Christ Church. There is fishing, snorkeling/diving, kayaking, horseback riding, bicycling, dolphin tours, ghost tours, and the trolley sightseeing tour. There is a playhouse and the cinema, windsurfing, parasailing, jet skiing, regular and miniature golf and the list could go on.There are also many great areas to explore nearby... Jekyll Island, Amelia Island and Fernandina beach, Savannah, Cumberland Island and Sapelo Island, St Augustine, and the Okefenokee Swamp. The list goes on. Information is provided in the condo.

And remember to leave with sand in your shoe, for legend says that then you will surely return.

Notes:

  • Ocean Walk is one of the best equipped complexes on the island. A few short steps out our condo door are the tennis courts (rackets provided). There are two pools available within the complex. (beach towels, pool and beach toys also provided). There is a gorgeous stocked pond in the center of the complex with a fountain, where the kids can fish or feed the ducks that call it "home". You can work out in the clubhouse fitness center with weights, lifecycle, treadmill, etc. The clubhouse also has a computer, fax machine, and copier for guests, or you can use your own laptop in the condo with our secure fast WiFi. And should you have a rainy day there are games, cards and books for your relaxation. We have a great location towards the back where it is peaceful if you are just needing a rest. All the comforts of home and then some.
