Sea Island, Georgia


So you’ve been to Sea Island, Georgia and you didn’t want to leave. You’re not alone. Enchanted visitors have long been building “cottages” so they could spend more time on the Island or make it their permanent home. Island Cottages have been around for over 90 years. After opening The Cloister Hotel in 1928, its owner Howard Coffin accelerated development of a nearby “cottage colony” by providing needed infrastructure, and encouraging his guests to build single-family homes. One of the colony’s early homeowners was Eugene O’Neill, who wrote his only comedy, Ah, Wilderness!, while on Sea Island.A Sea Island cottage is more than a cottage Although your single-family home on Sea Island may be called a cottage, here the word takes on a whole new meaning. Sea Island cottages are grand, spacious architectural wonders in a breathtaking resort location. You’ll live in a nature-lover’s dream world with access to the luxurious amenities of a five-star vacation retreat and a lifetime’s worth of things to do. There’s also the mild weather and five miles of unspoiled, private beach.You can’t go wrong with the location Most Sea Island cottages are in the long, narrow center of the island…which means all have easy access to the beach on the east, and marsh to the west. Some are new construction. A select few date back to the Roaring 1920’s, and come with a rich history. On the north end of the island, you will find an eclectic assortment of marshview and riverview single-family cottages along the length of Oglethorpe Drive. East of Oglethorpe, the private, gated community of Ocean Forest also includes single family homes adjacent to the only golf course on Sea Island.Need a hand?

Land and Lots on Sea Island

Back in the day, if you pleased the king you could get a land grant…like James MacKay, the first English owner of Sea Island who fought in the battle of Bloody Marsh. Sadly those days are gone. You’re not getting a land grant. But you can buy a buildable lot. And you’ll be getting a piece of Sea Island. Think about that. While there is certainly no surplus of buildable Sea Island land available, you can still find a variety of home sites—particularly on the north end of Sea Island. Some are wooded, some are cleared. Along Oglethorpe Drive, you can find both inland properties and lots with river access. Within the exclusive, gated Ocean Forest Golf Community at Sea Island, lots are available in the Dunes Cottages subdivision where owners can design and build their own custom home from the ground up. Buyers of land on Sea Island are eligible for membership in the Sea Island Club which offers access to everything Sea Island has to offer along with championship golf at the Resort-owned courses on St. Simons Island. Ocean Forest club members can also play the Rees Jones-designed ocean-side golf course and enjoy a variety of dining options at the Clubhouse. When it comes to Sea Island real estate, there’s so much to see and talk about. And we would love to be your personal guide. We know the Island. We know its history. We know its long list of attractions. So if you would like to acquire a Sea Island property, please call me at 912.270.5730 or email PhoebeHoaster(at)gmail(dotted)com
