The Peninsula at Golden Isles, a new 3,300 acre master planned community surrounded with over thirteen miles of river and marsh frontage, is positioned as the "model" eco-community for Coastal Georgia and the Golden Isles. The Peninsula is a logical extension of the already developed Golden Isles which include Sea Island, St. Simon's and Jekyll Island. Our community will allow newcomers and those seeking retreat to enjoy Coastal Georgia lifestyle as it has been experienced for ages; sharing mild climate, lush marshes, moss-draped live oaks and ocean access.

The community will remain a retreat from the urban hustle and bustle. One of the Peninsula's best kept secrets is how well our Community will be connected to the waterways and estuaries of Coastal Georgia. This is the vision for our Harbour which will serve as the community gathering place and major center of activity for home owner's and guests of the Peninsula. Serving as home to many of the planned amenities, the Harbour is the center of the community. Here, in the Harbour Square, residents can dine in our planned seafood restaurant, shop away in the retail boutiques, reflect in the Chapel or treat themselves and guests to time well spent at the Spa or Bed & Breakfast. For those seeking the outdoors and water-borne satisfaction, the planned eco-marina and outfitters are at their service. Or grab your bike and head out on more than 50 miles of urban trail systems which meander throughout the community.

We have already captured the interest and support of local, regional, and state leadership as well as environmental organizations in business, government, and education. The Peninsula has joined efforts with Southface Energy Group, Earthcraft Coastal Communities and the U.S. Green Building Council in order to insure that this pristine natural environment remains for generations. Through our joint efforts, we have created a cutting edge "green" community utilizing the newest technologies and planning for the future of our delicate coastal home. The Peninsula is offering the public an opportunity to enjoy Coastal Georgia as it was meant to be; where people can enjoy an active lifestyle within an amenitized low environmental impact community.

The Peninsula's location is minutes from I-95, offering convenient access to anywhere along the east coast and with four regional and international airports within an hour from your home, access to and from The Peninsula is quick and convenient from all over the country. Given our location, in the heart of the Golden Isles within Glynn County, we aim to entice a new audience to the allure of the Georgia Coast while also capturing a local Glynn County demographic.

Close-by, the lure of Georgia's Golden Isles awaits: St. Simon's Island, Sea Island, and Jekyll Island are accessible by boat or car and provide world-class boutique shopping and fine dining. And Jacksonville, with its professional sports, medical services and growing fine arts scene, is only 45 minutes away, while Savannah, with its gourmet dining and antique treasures is but an hour to the North. It's also within fifteen minutes to the beaches of Jekyll Island and St. Simon's Island, which according to Money Magazine's research, is one of the top five best places in America to retire (Money Magazine, Oct. 2006).

The market for land saw a minor downturn during the overall housing market slowdown, but the still unquenched baby boomer market continues to increase the demand for "small town" community products. Coupled with Spring Tide Communities' commitment to the restoration, preservation, and conservation-we are in a strong position to succeed where others have floundered.

Our community concept is one that is responsive to the demand of today's market. The amenities we have will reach out to the active life style of today's baby boomer demographic.
