The beginning of summer is almost upon us, and you hear your friends and co-workers talking about their vacation plans. You’ve been dragging your feet, trying to find the best option for your family.

Consider looking into real estate on St Simons. A Â rental property or St Simons vacation home on the island may be just what you’re looking for.
