About Property Manager
Native to Georgia... this is the first place we thought of when looking for vacation property. My mother has owned a place near the village for over 20 years so my children practically grew up here! I always dreamed of one day having a place of my own... and this is it! We picked this particular house because it was a new, modern, craftsman style construction in a well established neighborhood, convenient to both the beach and the village. We often park our car when we arrive and don't drive again until it is time to leave. We named the house 'Righteous Oaks' from a scripture reference from Isaiah 61:3b 'They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor.' This fits perfectly in reference to all of the beautiful live oak trees on the island and for other more personal reasons : ) This home holds a very special place in my heart... a good place to relax, renew and refresh yourself!
Property Manager purchased this House in 2006
Why Property Manager chose Saint Simons Island
St. Simons Island is conveniently located 5 hours from Atlanta and an easy drive! Once you arrive, you never want to leave. I think it is the quaint, small town village feel that people fall in love with. It is like a time warp... just don't think you can duplicate it. The pace is slow, the people are friendly, you rarely see or hear a cell phone, the food is great and you can bike everywhere... love it!
What makes this House unique
Besides being able to bike everywhere, we occasionally treat ourselves to a few excursions. We have a favorite captain that we like to book for a day of fishing or just exploring the area. It is also fun to kayak... there is a great place in the village that offers trips through the marsh... a quick beginners class and you are on your way! We have also been known to bike over to the far side of the island to visit Christ's church and stop on the way back for a treat : )

We really enjoyed this house. It has a lot of character and was a great fit for our group of seven. We would stay here again.
A wonderful property
From the moment we walked in, my family fell in love with this delightful home. We have been coming to SSI for years. This was our best stay.
We loved staying here!
We had a great time here, location is within walking distance to the Village area. We all fell in love with the house and decor and of course the porch swing.
Thanks for taking time to write a review and for your kind words. It always makes me happy to hear that others enjoy the house as much as we do.... and I agree the porch is a wonderful addition :-). Hope you can visit again soon. Best, Donna
Love this house!! It worked great for my family and is very convenient to shops, eating and the beach.
We come back yearly -- it's like home away from home.
Glad you enjoyed your stay! We love having you stay at the house every year. You feel like family and we know the house is being well cared for. We look forward to your next visit in the fall. Have a great summer!! :-)
Excellent Vacation Home
The house is extremely comfortable, spacious and very well appointed. The location is ideal for access to the village/pier/restaurant, bars, library, etc. We walked or biked to most of our island activities, except golf, which we played on Jekyll Island. The neighbourhood is quiet and the neighbours friendly. I can't think of one thing that could be improved upon.
Thank you Donna for sharing your lovely home.
