Travel: The Ultimate Retreat at the Cloister Ocean Residences

Luxury Living Tampa Bay

The oceanfront Cloister Ocean Residences are located at Sea Island, a coastal Georgia resort island with five miles of private, pristine beach on the Atlantic Ocean.

This private oceanfront community on a gated island offers residents a deeded quarter ownership and the pampered Sea Island lifestyle one week every month in their own luxuriously furnished one, two, or three bedroom residence. The 22 fully furnished and equipped residences range from 1,104 to 3,102 square feet. There are 88 total ownerships and many have been sold, leaving only a limited number that range in cost from $375,000 to $1.1 million.

Each of the residences were refurbished this past Spring along with most of the public spaces. The new interiors are designed to lighten and brighten in a seaside motif while retaining the elegance of the signature Addison Mizner Mediterranean design seen throughout the island. In addition, a new oceanfront infinity-edge pool pavilion was unveiled this year.

Randy Burgess, Project Director for The Cloister Ocean Residences, said current owners and potential buyers have been impressed with the enhancements. “Demand for The Cloister Ocean Residences has increased this year and we attribute much of that to the upgrades made at both The Cloister Ocean Residences and at The Cloister.” In response to strong demand, the hotel, located adjacent to the Residences on Sea Island, added 63 new rooms, a 5,000-square-foot ballroom and an additional pool.

Owners are eligible to apply for full membership in the Sea Island Club and initial membership fees are waived for purchasers (currently valued at $100,000). Members enjoy privileged access and discounts on a host of services and activities. Deeded quarter-ownership, providing 13 weeks annual access one week each month, each year, with longer arranged stays possible, enabling owners to enjoy Sea Island throughout the year. Over a 4-year period, owners have the opportunity to use every week of the year. Ownerships can be sold, transferred or left as a legacy for generations to come.

Owners not only enjoy frequent vacations to Sea Island, but also enjoy traveling to a variety of other worldwide destinations. Cloister Ocean Residences owners enjoy a Chairman’s Club membership in 3RD HOME, a reciprocal use travel club of luxury second home owners and resorts, with over 4,500 properties in 70+ countries.
