Recent Gulf Beaches reviews

  • Wonderful open spaces for family fun! Could easliy be a 5 star!

    "Most of all we thoroughly enjoyed our week in this spacious home with a 2 min. walk to the beautiful beach. Our grand kids enjoyed the pool in the evening and all of us got in the nicely private and screened in hot tub at least once to relax. All the beds were nice and comfy with nice bedding and ample room in each including the bunk room. The lay out of the house suited us very well with one family with 4 kids on the west end, the other with one kid on the east end and us, the grand parents on the first floor in the master (hey we paid for it we get the master!). The kitchen had plenty of pots and pans, toaster, crock pot and mixer, etc. The washer and dryer are large which cut down on our number of loads giving us more time on the beach. The screened in outside table and chairs gave us a great place to sort our voluminous shell treasures and to do some beach crafts. We enjoyed the beautiful sunrises from the open front porch. We prepared all our meals in the home except for one dinner out at the Blue Parrot. The food there was really good and we loved the outside atmosphere. The only negatives that warranted 4 stars instead of a 5 is that; the house wasn't well cleaned, sand on the couch cushions, mold in the shower, floors not sweep and vacuumed well and kitchen sink in need of some scrubbing. The kids would have enjoyed some pool/beach toys and we even had to purchase salt and pepper as well as dish washing soap as there were none provided. No hair dryers. Also there is no internet service after about 8pm which our guys saw as a definite disadvantage when watching a football game in the evening. We grilled out some but sure would have preferred a gas grill with a cover over instead of charcoal and unable to be used on the two rainy evenings. There are 3 places to buy groceries but stock up before you arrive since the selection is limited and prices high. There's also not a ton of beach activities at "our beach" which us girls liked but the guys were a little bored. The wave running was helpful and since it was off season the cost was reduced from $100/hr to $150/2hrs (but they had to ask for it!). All in all I would stay here again in a heart beat since the lay out was exactly suited for our family. We stay in different beach houses each year from Destin, Crystal Beach, Sea Grove etc and this one was the one I liked the best. Even though I mentioned negative aspects they were all pretty minor in the scheme of things."

  • A great vacation!

    "Our visit to St-George Island is one to remember! Coastal Exchange was just perfect with its closeness to the beach, the view of the Gulf from every room, the property itself which was very clean, well maintained and very pet friendly! No surprises it was exactly as advertised! We really enjoyed the amenities as it was well maintained and equipped for activities on the beach. The owner contacted us a few days after our arrival to enquire about our satisfaction and provided us with some restaurant referrals and other facilities. We strongly recommend this property!"

    "We got married on the Island and stayed at this house all week. We had 10 people with us and had plenty of room, all the cookware and party supplies for a beautiful dinner afterwards. We hope to come back for a reunion or Anniversary. Amazing start to a life together started in this house! Incredible!"
