Recent Gulf Beaches reviews

  • Great trip to St. George at Last Starw

    "Overall we had a great time and would definitely come back and stay at this house. Close walk to the beach, short drive to island center of activity. Only a couple of things I would suggest to owner: 1. The front deck railing is loose and parts of it feel like may come loose if someone leans on it 2. Update some of the fixtures / appliances. They all function, but could use updating. (Hall Bath lighting, oven) Upon our arrival, the home was not clean from the prior rental. Apparently there was some sort of confusion between the owner and the cleaner about the date of our arrival. Once we reached the cleaner, he came right over and by the time we were finished eating dinner out, the house was clean. Kudos to him, he got a lot done in a short period, the prior renters did not leave it in good shape. After that issue was fixed, we got to settle in and had a wonderful time. There is plenty of room and our party of 6 (7 for part of the week) had plenty of room and space to sleep. We had 6 adults and 1 child. Kitchen has lot of storage if you bring your own stuff and is well stocked with necessary prep items (pots, pans, cookware, utensils, etc...) and dishes/glasses. I was surprised to have people staying in a small apt below. Didn't realize this was two properties when I rented it. Was not an issue at all, just surprised me. I think they left the day after we arrived. This home is a short walk to the beach (less than 5 minutes at a VERY leisurely pace). The beaches were not crowded at all which is exactly what we wanted during our spring break trip. We might see 20 people on the beach at same time as us (on a busy day) and were all spread out - very nice, quiet and relaxing. Deck is huge and great for hanging out and playing games or having a drink. If it gets too hot, there is also a covered/screened porch off two of the bedroms but also accessible from the main deck. It does have a gate at the steps. We thought we may bring our pets next time and let them hang out on the porches. This was our first trip to St. George. Overall a great place, a great home and a great trip at a great price. Close side trips we made were to Appalachicola, Wakulla Springs, Alligator Point, Carabelle & Panacea. We highly recommend The Last Straw - I'm sure we will be back some time in the future. thanks Cliff"

  • Fantastic Beach House!!!

    "This was by far the best beach house we've ever rented. There were six adults and five children. We never felt like we were on top of each other. The upstairs living area was huge. We put all the kids downstairs where they had their own bedrooms, bath and living area. The pool was great. There was plenty of shade for those who don't like to bake in the sun. Our son-in-law couldn't wait to get his hands on the huge grill. Palm tress surround the pool area, so there is complete privacy. The house has all the amenities you could ask for. Plenty of everything. They even provided paper towels, toilet tissue, garbage bags and even k-cups for the Keurig. The owners were great. They brought us shrimp one day which was delicious. The floors were all tile, which we loved. No yucky carpet. Walk right out on the beach from the downstairs area. We loved St. George Island. We practically had the beach to ourselves. The kids found all kinds of shells and star fish. Great place for families who just want to be together, have a great time and get away from all the hustle and bustle. This is not Destin or Panama City. The dolphins gave us great shows jumping up and flapping their fins. We didn't want to leave, but we will be back."

  • The most amazing vacation ever!!

    "Wow, such a beautiful home, a spectacular location and awesome view. My family and I couldn't have ask for more. The house is perfect for whatever the occasion. The kitchen has everything you will need to prepare a meal and the rest of the house is just as accommodating. If you want to relax in the jetted tub, walk on the beach, enjoy the front porch rockers or work a puzzle you'll find it all here, and so much more. We also enjoyed the fresh sea food from the trucks that come to the island. Everyone we met was so nice. Most of all the home owner is such a beautiful person. Thank you for sharing your home with me and my family. You brought so much joy and happiness to our family. Can't wait to go back!!"

  • Homey Cottage

    "This was our first family vacation in about 15 years and just what we were looking for. We were able to take our fur-baby, Bella, and she equally enjoyed the trip. Sandpiper is a homey little cottage and we were honored to stay there. I didn't do any cooking, but the kitchen was well stocked with pot, pans & utensils. Guess I shoulda cooked a little, but I cook every day at home and just took a break. The beds were comfortable considering we are used to the adjustable Sleep Number beds. The only suggestions I would have would be better shower heads, sometimes felt like I needed to run around to get good and wet and possibly a more comfortable seating arrangement. After my husband's four hip replacements, the lower seating of the couch and chairs didn't work real well for him. The landscaping is beautiful, with butterflies and hummingbirds. The sun porch was really nice, we left the windows open most of the time unless it rained and it was fairly comfortable even during the day. I would love to have some of the bushes in my yard. The pool was really nice, we didn't get to spend a lot of time at the pool or beach because it rained our first two days, and also my daughter and I burn easily so mostly we just relaxed. St. George Island is great for down time and the food was great. A couple of pet-friendly restaurants on the Island and several in Apalachicola. Highly recommend Sandpiper, Lynn was a pleasure to work with. She gave me several suggestions for things to do and places to eat. Hope to be back next year."
