  • Home away from Home! Perfect Home

    "What a great place to stay!! This House is PERFECT! Our family had a very relaxing vacation. The perfect get away. Our family enjoyed swimming by the pool, lying out on the beach, going for walks, fishing, the great view, easy access to the beach, riding the golf cart and exploring the area. St. George Island was very quiet. The worry free environment was just what we needed. My two year old nephew was so comfortable he referred, Almost Heaven as “his” beach house. The bedrooms were perfect for sleeping arrangements. The owner was great to work with and even checked to make sure we were having a good time. Thanks Avery for making our family of 11 feel like we had a home away from home. We will be back to stay again."

  • A very pleasant get away

    "This was our first time renting a house on a vacation, so we're newbies. I didn't know what to expect. The biggest thing that I can say is that I wish I was still there... we simply didn't want to leave. The house is wonderful and spacious. Neighbors were friendly, the beaches are delightful. The beds are comfy, the back porch is shaded and cool. It's an easy walk with the stroller to the beach with the kids. The island is so safe, I didn't lock up my bikes or anything. The location is a bit off of the main so you don't have any spectacular views, but a short 2 block walk will get them for you. And on the plus, the privacy was excellent. I highly recommend it. The owner was very helpful and all went very, very well. Thanks Tim! We really, really hope we get to do it again soon!"

  • Great location! Beautiful views!

    "This was our third visit to SGI and Carapace was the best house so far. We love the location and the house was very comfortable for four adults and our grand dog. It is an older house, but well maintained. The open living area with all the windows is gorgeous! The kitchen was well equipped with lots of dishes, glassware, cooking utensils. The owner was very accommodating and brought us a new toaster very quickly after we called. The state park is wonderful for kayaking and love the dog friendly beach. The sunsets and moon rises were beautiful and we haven't seen stars and the Milky Way so bright in a long time? We will definitely return to Carapace!"

  • Great Family Getaway

    "We really enjoyed our stay. Jerry and his daughter were wonderful to work with. The house was spacious, neat and clean. Just steps away from the shared pool (although it was too cold to enjoy) and a beautiful stretch of beach. We watched dolphins from the balcony and walked to the lighthouse and nearby shops. The only recommendation is for a larger supply of hot water. With five people taking showers we sometimes ran out of hot water. We hope to visit again in the warm months! Highly Recommended!!"
