Rental for a month in winter 2019

My husband and I have stayed in St Simons Island and visited Jekyll Island. We love the area. We want to rent for a month during the winter to try snowbirding to escape the Ohio winter. If we like it, we plan to extend to two months, then three months and ultimately buy. We must have high speed internet so my husband can work. Any recommendations for rental contacts or areas to search? Thanks in advance.

VRBO or local realtors.

A lot of snowbirds book 3 months at a time so there may be limited availability on the small islands.

There are a couple of rental agents on SSI who have been around a while. The internet shouldn't be an issue. Most smaller places are not on the beach. Google is your friend.

Good info. Several condo communities on the road across from the Village/pier area which rent both in winter and summer.

Hodnett Cooper is who we used for a couple of years. They have a wide variety.

Thanks all! We have also rented with hodgenett cooper in the past. We had a less than great experience the last time to be honest. Maybe I will give them a call.

I agree. I have found that many places want a three month rental. I am hesitant to do that though since I haven’t tried snowbirding yet.

I have been googling but thought getting other opinions would be good. Thanks.

We stayed close to the village the last time. The location was great. The condo not so much. Thanks.
