Place: St. Simons Island Georgia

Slip Off to a St. Simons Vacation Rental
By Caitlin Moore

So youíve decided to visit St. Simons Island located in warm, sunny, southwest Georgia. Maybe youíre a Georgia resident whoís never made it down that far, or perhaps youíre from somewhere else and just canít shake the feeling that this would be a great place to spend a few days. After the stressful few months youíve had, all that really matters is that you end up somewhere with ample beach space and enough time to properly enjoy it. St. Simons, here you come.

When staying in a laid-back spot where your most pressing needs will be eating, sleeping, swimming, and relaxing, itís best to make sure that you reserve a place to stay that will accommodate you and your traveling companions as well as possible. The whole point of this trip is to let go of all anxiety, so donít make the mistake of settling for less than you deserve in the lodging department.

The place you lay your head at night and the walls that youíll be looking at for the duration of your trip have a heavy impact on the overriding mood, so be sure to go for cheery and comfortable rather than cheap and claustrophobic. Do this by checking out the dozens of vacation rentals located on St. Simonís Island, and let your heart tell you which one will bring a smile to the faces of all your companions. Nothing is better than having your expectations exceeded, so do what you can to ensure that when you unlock the door to your home away from home, itíll be cheers instead of jeers.

For instance, large groups would feel comfortable in one of the window-filled, three-story cottages by the sea that is brimming with amenities and big enough for everyone to get out of each otherís hair at the end of the day. Spread out, stay up late, sleep in, shower off outsideÖall of these phrases will become a part of your vocabulary after a few days in your luxury digs, and family spirits will probably be running pretty high.

The kitchen will allow you to keep snacks on hand, so after an intense swimming session in what is essentially your backyard, hunger pangs wonít go untreated. Save money by stocking the pantry with a few basic groceries, and only go to restaurants when youíre in the mood for something special. Considering that the beach is probably going to be the favorite attraction of the trip, donít be surprised if you end up sticking close to ďhomeĒ more often than not.

Not that there isnít plenty to do here in St. Simons. Sports lovers will find venues to play golf, tennis, racquetball, basketball, and can ride horses all day if they want to. History buffs will be intrigued by the museums and landmarks that commemorate the influences of Native Americans and the early colonists. A ghost tour will point out all the spooky secrets of this otherwise welcoming isle, and nature lovers will be in heaven as they realize that they have access to marshy plants, exotic animals, and a plethora of birds.

If youíre feeling traditional, head to the cinema or the pool, and for a little more adventure, seek out the places where the dolphins like to play. Sit down in the living room for a game of cards, or set up a beach volleyball net and form a couple of teams. The choices will be endless as your vacation flies by, so donít forget to savor every second.

Thanks to the washer and dryer, plentiful closet space, and continuously welcoming environment of your vacation rental, you would feel perfectly comfortable staying here for several days or even several weeks. If your schedule and budget allow for it, go ahead and treat yourself to a true vacation. Enjoy the scenery, enjoy your fellow travelers, and enjoy the feeling of utter relaxation. Itís doubtful youíll come to regret taking a few extra days off, so go ahead and do it right this time.

Go online to pick out the St. Simons Island Vacation Rental that will complete the spectacular vision youíve formed of your upcoming retreat. The beach is waiting for you to come on down, and your worries are waiting to escape your mind.
