"Two families of four had a wonderful time at Seaview! From entering a very clean and inviting house to sadly leaving the last day we couldn't have had a better time.
Seaview is set up for a perfect family vacation. A short walk across the street to the beach to play all day, and back to the house to swim, soak in the hot tub, make s'mores and relax on the porch at night. We brought groceries and bought some there at the IGA and Piggly Wiggly about 15 min. away in Apalachicola. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to make and eat our meals. We ordered pizza a couple nights and highly recommend BJ's!
You won't find a crazy spring break scene at St. George Island-- it is not a traditional spring break location- it's a quiet, quaint, scenic island with lots of uncrowded beach and shells to explore. We rented a boat one night for a pirate/sunset cruise and drove about 45 min. to go horseback riding at Cape San Blas. Other than that, we were on the island, soaking up the sun and playing at the beach.
We were at Seaview from March 28-April 4. Our weather was perfect- in the 70s with a light breeze. We got plenty of sun without sweating, yet it was warm enough to swim as well.
We had a problem with the oven one night and had to call the owner, David. We immediately were given some suggestions, which ended up working, but before that worked there was no hesitation in an offer to get a repairman out the next day.
Everyone appreciated the strong wi-fi in the house. We did not need the fireplace, but that would have been fun if we needed it.
The only thing I would recommend is to bring some extra towels and kitchen dishtowels. 6 sets of towels and washcloths were set out as well as 1 dish cloth and 2 dishtowels. We made it work, but had we known we would have brought an extra set from home. Everything else we needed was there- dishwasher soap, liquid dish soap, paper towels, toilet paper, bed linens, extra blankets, pillows, etc.
Overall, we would definitely go back and hope to next year!"
