Recent Gulf Beaches reviews

  • St. George Island and the Island Dream is the perfect combination.

    "This was absolutely the best vacation ever. St. George Island was recommended by a family member and they were right. Island Dream was the best bargain on the island. Literally steps to the beach. When we weren't on the beach, we were on the screened-in porch looking at the Gulf of Mexico. Everything we could ask for was furnished. All we had to do is show up and enjoy. And enjoy we did !!! The owners were so gracious and charming. The perfect vacation combination. We will return to St. George Island and we will stay at the Island Dream next year."

  • Great location! Beautiful views!

    "This was our third visit to SGI and Carapace was the best house so far. We love the location and the house was very comfortable for four adults and our grand dog. It is an older house, but well maintained. The open living area with all the windows is gorgeous! The kitchen was well equipped with lots of dishes, glassware, cooking utensils. The owner was very accommodating and brought us a new toaster very quickly after we called. The state park is wonderful for kayaking and love the dog friendly beach. The sunsets and moon rises were beautiful and we haven't seen stars and the Milky Way so bright in a long time? We will definitely return to Carapace!"

  • A great place to stay - will stay here again!

    "My husband and I (with our 100 lb chocolate lab) stayed in this wonderful house in April 2014 for our anniversary trip. It was everything we wanted and needed for our stay. I was 7 months pregnant so having the Elevator was so helpful (the dog wasnt digging it at The Top floor is where the Kitchen, Living area, and Master Suite are. We pretty much stayed on that floor for our trip. The Kitchen is nice and well equipped for the cooking and grilling we liked to do. The Master suite was large and very accommodating. There is a great balcony off of this floor giving wonderful views. The laundry room was on the middle floor - worked fine. Everything was Clean, in working order, and was as Described. The House is just a short stint to the beach - walkable. Absolutely no complaints about the house! The owner is a wonderful guy. He was very eager to make sure our stay was perfect, and went out of his way in our case to make sure we were having a great trip. We are already planning to rent this house again next year around the same time! I definitely recommend this rental. (Note: Bring your bug spray - applies to anywhere you stay on the island!!)"
