St. Simons Island GA

It seems I hear more and more about St. Simons Island Georgia as a vacation spot, a second home location and now a great retirement place.

St. Simons Island is part of the legendary Golden Isles near Historic Brunswick, Georgia, St. Simons Island lies between Jekyll Island and Sea Island.

Marsh’s Edge is a full service senior community located on the beautiful Saint Simons Island.  From the photos on their web site, it looks simply gorgeous, with lakes and live oaks around the property.  Already a vacation and second home destination, Marsh’s Edge is in the midst of legendary golf courses, distinctive boutiques, art galleries and antique shops.

I can imagine living here without the worries about home maintenance, yard work and other chores.  It would be like being on vacation all the time. The Wellness Center includes senior friendly exercise equipment and an indoor swimming pool.

Continuing Care Retirement Community

This is a Continuing Care Retirement Community. CCRCs are so named because they address the entire continuum of care with healthy seniors moving into independent living apartments, but having the security of knowing they can “age in place” thanks to assisted living and skilled nursing services on site.

A big part of Marsh’s Edge is the regular retirement community living. They have a good variety of accomadations including:

  • Spacious one and two-bedroom apartments — some include a den
  • Two-bedroom plus den and three-bedroom cottages
  • I think a trip to check out Marsh’s Edge on St. Simons Island would be interesting and worthwhile.
