A Trip to Paradise Has a Rocky Start

Our summer would never be complete without a trip to my fav place...St. Simons Island, Georgia.  As I've mentioned before, Honey picked out SSI for our honeymoon almost 24 years ago.On that honeymoon we both fell in love with the Georgia Coast.
We have a fav little condo that we have stayed in for several years and had booked this year too.  But the week we were headed over, we found out we'd be staying in a different place...a house.  Now I was assured it would be just fine but, it was a little dated.  When we arrived and saw just how dated it was I could have cried!  When she said dated I imaged black appliances instead of stainless....that is dated...but ya'll we are talking plaid curtains and furniture dating back to the 70's.    I called the gal I lease through and was fighting back tears as I ask for the WIFI passcode and she knew I was less than happy.  I even mention that I just don't think we will be staying the entire booked time due to the condition of the property. She apologized and we hung up.  Within 3 minutes she called me and said "we have a unit over at the King and Prince that we are gonna put ya'll in."
 She had me 
at King and Prince.
Somehow, we managed to pack up and throw load everything back into the van and head over to the beach front, King and Prince Resort!  In all these years of going to St. Simons we've never actually stayed on the beach.  No one ever understands why we don't stay on the beach but, I adore Sea Palms Resort. Any way we flew over to the King and Prince Resort and fell in love with it just like Sea Palms.
This is the ocean side of the King & Prince.  I'm not sure if I can ever not stay on the beach again.

 And when I walked through this door...I knew that this vacay would be fabulous!

Now....please forgive me for the quality of these photos, I took them with my cell phone.

 The view alone was worth the aggravation of packing and loading our stuff back up!

Just know that angels were singing every time I stepped onto the balcony and looked at this view!

  1. Hi there, What a wonderful setting; reminds me of the Islands. I've never been to this area, but seeing these photos makes me want to go-plus it is closer than Hawaii. Thanks for sharing, looks like a wonderful vacation spot.

  2. OH my goodness! Glad it turned out well. I hate it when I am paying so much for a vacation rental and it ends up being crummy. I feel cheated!

  3. Great view. Really love the beach anytime but now it's time for football season!
