"if you want a home right on the beach this is it. Wonderful kitchen and huge table for everyone to eat at. Floor plan worked well for big family. Pool was nice, but all pool chaises were broken. Lots of things in the house needed fixing. If your picky this is the wrong house. Still had a good time and would go back."

"The house was immaculate and came with everything we needed to cook and have a great time. It really felt like a home away from home. My older kids loved staying in the loft area. They really enjoyed the pool (although it is kind of small), it was great for my young kids. They were never out of reach or in over their heads. Everything worked properly. We had absolutely no issues with anything related to this rental. The bar next door was a little noisy and the walk to the beach wasn't ideal with small children only because we had to carry beach toys, etc. however, it was a short two minute drive to the public beach access."

"We stayed at Serendipity over my fall break off from teaching. This is our second time staying on St. George Island and we loved our experience. The house was perfect for my husband and me along with our 11 and 14 year old daughters. The layout of the house allowed our teenager to have her own room upstairs and more privacy. The girls loved having their own tv's in their bedrooms. The view of the ocean from the open living/kitchen area and bedroom was spectacular. It was so wonderful to sit on the deck and be up high where the view was unobstructed. We saw dolphins on many days swimming by. We enjoyed cooking fresh seafood from the food trucks and dining at the restaurant just down the beach. The central location was great for the restaurants, grocery, ice cream shop, Sometimes It's Hotter store (delicious bread and key lime pie), lighthouse, and basketball courts. We enjoyed delicious meals from the Grub Hut food truck. They serve breakfast and lunch and it is parked in a lot near Serendipity. The shrimp tacos were great! The weather was a little rough on one night and the following day due to Hurricane Patricia, but it improved for the rest of our stay. We spent time throwing back a lot of sea stars and jellyfish that had washed up on the shore still alive. We enjoyed the hot tub in the evenings. On the two days we did not stay on the island, we shopped and dined in Apalachicola, Florida and we drove to Panacea, Florida to visit the Marine Gulf Specimen Aquarium. We went there the last time we were in the area, and it is a really interesting place where you can reach your hand in the tanks and touch a variety of sea life. The girls were big fans. I convinced my husband to drive 30 minutes north of Panacea to Wakulla Springs State Park in hopes of seeing a manatee on the boat ride. We were in luck because we did see one along with many birds and gators. We ate at the lodge and really enjoyed it.The rest of the time was spent relaxing on the beach. The home was clean and had everything we needed for a really enjoyable and relaxing stay. It is a really nice home and you can't beat the location. Serendipity did not disappoint and our vacation was amazing! The stairs might be a problem for younger children and older adults, but we had no issues and liked the layout a lot."
