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. And also have hi-speed internet. The kitchen is very well equipped with a microwave, full size stove/oven, toaster, diswasher, garbage disposal, coffee maker, pots and pans and many dishes. So you would not need to go out for any meals, but then you would miss the offerings of the many fabulous restaurants on the island. Dining guides are provided in the unit along with information about activities and entertainment nearby. There also is a washer and dryer in the unit.
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.

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.
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
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.

- 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.
