Even though all of us have been to St. Simons over the years, this is the first time we’ve all been together to create new memories, and we’re so looking forward to coming back to this beautiful house! See you next time!"

  • "The Radford family celebrated the 80th birthday reunion of June Radford (Mom). This was our first reunion of the whole family since 2000. The Strachan House made the perfect site for our get-together. The patio by the pool was a wonderful place for everyone to sit and talk in the evening. St. Simons Island is also a great place to visit. Kayaking, bike riding, walks, and the trolley tour were big hits. Also visited the light-house, the cemetery at the Episcopal Church near Ft. Frederica. And we can’t forget that Mom proved her prowess at miniature golf at the age of 80."

  • "The rich history of the place could be felt all around. You feel secluded, yet you are right in the middle of everything. We enjoyed every minute of the stay. The pool, jacuzzi, even the local restaurants. Loved it all."
