Recent Gulf Beaches reviews

  • All it was cracked up to be (and more) for a family of 6

    "We had a beautiful, first-time vacation on Saint George Island from Illinois and thoroughly enjoyed our accommodations at the Paradise Bungalow. It was clean and well-maintained and best of all -- RIGHT ON THE BEACH FOR CHEAP!! There are certainly fancier places to pick from, but at this price, we were thrilled with how nice it was and with its location. It is a stone's throw from the Gulf and right in the center of the Island and for us, we were glad we picked the Gulf side rather than the Bay side. It was great to be able to just dip in and out of the Gulf throughout the day and send the kids down to the beach where we could still see them (JR High and HS aged). My ONLY negative for the Bungalow was that we could smell a pet odor when we first came in since it was all closed up and the air was off. After the A/C was running for a few hours though we could no longer smell it at all. All 6 of us fit just fine (manageable with one bathroom for a week). The kids said their beds were all comfortable, as was the master bed. The Wi-Fi was fast and dependable. We saw lots of dolphin, all kinds of crabs, star fish, and sea snails. We were also lucky enough to be there when the conservation folks checked a hatched sea turtle nest and got to see them rescue two little survivors! We snorkeled and kayaked over in Port St. Joe and looked all around Apalachicola which are both nearby. FYI, there is a Dollar General nearby for anything you might forget. We felt like we had the beach to ourselves for the most part. To say it was not crowded would be a huge understatement. It was too hot the week we were there to rent bikes to go the four miles to the State Park, but we drove over there and swam and it is pristine. We actually preferred the beach right in front of our own place though! The water was warm, but refreshing and the food on the Island was very good. We ate at BJ's Pizza and the Beach Pit. We had a really great time, and would pick the exact same place again now that we have seen everything first hand."

  • Almost Heaven, Perfect Name for the Perfect House at St. George Island

    "This House is PERFECT! 2 blocks from the beach and ideally situated near the Plantation. I have stayed here a few times and can't get enough! The house is elevated, parking is underneath (a must for beach areas!) It has 4 large bedrooms, 3 of which have king/queen beds and the 4th bedroom is ideal for children, bunk beds and a day bed with trundle! There are 4 large bathrooms, nice big living room with fireplace and plenty of seating. There is a great kitchen - fully stocked, and large dining room table! The Pool is for all ages! The pool area is fenced in, has a hot tub and plenty of lounge chairs for all to enjoy! And an added bonus, the beaches and island are pet friendly! There is also a golf cart available to rent, which is a fun way to scoot around the island. There are also several great restaurants on the island and Apalachicola is only a 15 minute car ride away - and it has a great downtown with a ton of cute shops and restaurants!!!! But one of the best things to do is bring a cooler with you and stop by the seafood truck on your way out of town and stock up on yummy fresh local seafood to bring home!!!! I do every time! I can't wait to go back to Almost Heaven - as it really does feel like you are there!"
