  • Week at the Beach

    "We had a great stay at the Lite House. It was central to the shops and restaurants on the Island. As well as right on the beach. The view was amazing! The home was decorated nicely and we enjoyed it overall but there were a couple of items that could have been done that would have made my stay a 5. Those items include: 1. The AC can only be turn down to 73 degrees. I am used to sleeping with my AC on 68 which made it hot at night. I understand that you do not want the AC's to freeze up but a little more leniency in the temperature would be nice. 2. The Master Bed was hard. Maybe put a pillow topper on it or change it out. So with the AC not being able to be turned down and the bed being hard, I did have a tough time sleeping. I didn't say anything to the property management company but in hind sight maybe I should have. Even with these challenges the items that out weighed the issues and that would make me consider coming back were: 1. Great views of the beach from the home. 2. The beaches were not crowded and made for relaxing days. 3. Close enough to other towns like Apalachicola and Port St Joe where we ate at some great restaurants. Check out Tamara's in Apalachicola and Sunset Coastal Grill in Port St Joe. They are restaurants that carry more than just fried food and remind me of the great restaurants in Charleston, SC. 4. Jamie at Forgotton Shores Properties was very helpful with making my reservation, providing suggestions for dining / attractions and helped me greatly in shipping back a couple of items that I left. So if you are looking for a clean home to stay in, a great beach, amazing views and located in a small town atmosphere; then I would recommend this home and area."

  • 1 Amazing Week

    "What a wonderful week my family and I had. The house was very welcoming it felt like r home, very cozy and well maintained. One of the best stocked kitchens I have used while on vacation. The view was great, we could see the water just fine. The walk to the beach was just as previous reviews stated very short which was nice. The pool was great, loved the set up of having the shower and restroom right there. The grill not so much. The property advertised two grills and the one was unusable. At the end of the day I would highly recommend this 1 Amazing home. The rental agent was great to work with too!!!!"

  • 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 Beach House

    "Wonderful beach house with a great view of the beach. The home had everything we and our dogs needed for our stay. The decor was comfortable without feeling cluttered. I would absolutely recommend this home to anyone looking for a beach view without the beach front price. We loved it so much we've already reserved a week in 2015. Home owner was very repsonsive and very easy to work with in booking the home. Thanks for a great vacation!"
