My husband and I spent 3 days on LSSI in early December. From the time the boat picked us up at the marina to the time were were dropped back off, everything about our visit was excellent. The room, the food and the staff hospitality couldn't have been better. There are endless choices for activities with or without a naturalist... More

Unique, undeveloped natural vacation spot. The weather was rainy and poor the first two days affecting any outdoor activities because there are no dry paths or trails to walk or bike. There are no indoor fitness or exercise opportunities besides ping pong, so if you are use to a lot of activity during the day, you can go stir crazy.... More

Even in the most oppressive heat of summer, this place is perfect. Such wonderful hospitality from a terrific and knowledgeable staff, wonderful food and drink, and such an interesting and beautiful place. This was our 4th time there, and we love it more each time.

Our experience on Little Saint Simons Island exceeded our expectations. Thousands of acres of unspoiled natural beauty and seven miles of pristine private beach. The on-site naturalists took us on guided wildlife tours, surf fishing, creek fishing, boating, biking, and a night stroll on the beach. The highlight for us was when I caught 2 large Drum fish while surf... More

This place is amazing if you like to be in an unspoiled environment and enjoy nature. The birding and fishing were amazing and the highlight for my 12 year old daughter was catching a 4 foot shark. The staff was amazing.

This is a place where you can do everything or nothing. It is a beautiful barrier island, all imclusive. The daily rate may seem high but not only does it include meals and beer and wine but also all of the activities that you want to participate in, either alone or with a group.
