  • Great Family Vacation

    "We had a great family vacation at the Salty Seagull. Had the whole family (mom/dad, 4 young adult children, 1 teenager, a 2 year old and a 2 month old) down for vacation together. This place was better than advertised. They have everything you need for your stay at the beach: bicycles, beach chairs, umbrellas, etc. The beach access directly across the road was very convenient and not a problem (due to the short distance) if you forgot something at the house and had to go back for it. The house was clean, comfortable and the pictures probably don't do it justice. The hot tub/spa was great for the adults as well as the children, and the area where is it located is perfect for grilling in the afternoons with the grill provided. Peter and Sara greeted us as we arrived and truly welcomed us into their home. They could not have been any nicer or more helpful. They were truly gracious with everything they have there. The beach was beautiful; we saw dolphins every day; collected shells, found huge starfish and sand dollars, as well as other sea creatures; fishing from shore was great. We went kayaking in the bay and gulf and there was easy access to both. There were bicycle/running paths all over the island that were great, of which we enjoyed riding the bikes provided on. The Island is beautiful and a great place to have a quiet vacation with family. We will definitely recommend this place to family and friends and hope to return in the future."

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our week at your home in St. George! After each day at the beach, we looked forward to spending time at the pool or playing pool while we cooked dinner. The spacious living areas were perfect for our growing family. We are definitely interesting in staying here again next year!"

  • 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"
