 “We absolutely loved the house and would love to stay there again.  Very tastefully directed, user friendly and you were always available by phone for any additional needs. Loved the bag with goodies which we did not expect and all the conveniences in the home - all the bedding/towels/kitchen ware and extras provided.”

 "I wanted to write to you to thank you and the staff at Georgia Beach Rentals for providing our family with excellent service prior to and during our stay at Rivendell from March 10-18, 2012.  We really enjoyed our vacation on St. Simon's Island and loved the house, the beach, the golf courses, restaurants, people!  It was just a great week that was so relaxing and fun.
 
I especially wanted to send our compliments to Chris Moline.  He was such a help whenever we needed to ask a question about the house or a general question about the area.  He was very responsive to any concerns that we had and was very willing to do whatever he could to make sure our stay was as pleasant as possible.  I even had to call after returning home to tell him that I thought a trash bag of damp clothing, walking shoes and my favorite flip-flops had inadvertently been put in the trash can.  He was nice enough to actually search the trash can until he found that bag!  That is what I call going above and beyond, for sure!.
 
Thanks, again, for everything.  I hope we can return for another fabulous week on St. Simon's Island.  All of you at Georgia Beach Rentals definitely helped make our vacation very special by your professionalism and attention to our needs."
 
Best Regards,

Georgia Beach Rentals, LLC was proud to host the U. S. State Department Presidential Interpreters and international press during the 2004 G-8 Summit of World Leaders.  Our luxury beach homes were the only St. Simons Island cottages chosen by the State Department for participants of the G8 Summit.

We would like to share some our Summit guests’ comments about their experience at our cottages and on St. Simons Island.


June 10, 2004
St. Simons Island

“It is impossible for us to recall a summit venue as unequivocally perfect as Sea Island, nor a community of people with hearts as open to their visitors as the people of Georgia.

Within the small part played by the group of summit and presidential interpreters, the overriding sentiment the team takes back from Sea Island 2004 will no doubt be the open and unflagging hospitality of the Jarman family. From Lindsay and Zachary’s smiling faces upon our arrival to the tireless generosity of their parents, I cannot begin to enumerate the times I silently thanked you, Nancy -- not just for myself, but for the wonderful mood you helped create for the team and for the stream of memories you provide for the foreign members of our group.

You have been perfect ambassadors of your country.  You have made our demanding jobs easier to accomplish and you have made new and lasting friends who will keep you and St. Simons Island close to their hearts.”

Thank you for being with us through it all.

Dear Jarman Family,

“Thank you for a wonderful week!  On behalf of the 2004 Sea Island Summit Staff – thank you!  You have made our job so much easier and helped the United States act like the true hosts we all are.  You have been a part of history this week! What an experience.  You all went above and beyond what was necessary. All the interpreters were so grateful.  I think many of them will return to the Coast Cottages and St. Simons!  Thank you again for an incredible week. I couldn’t have asked for a more hospitable family and place to lay our heads!”

With true appreciation,

Stephanie Linder
