  • Gorgeous location

    "This is a very hard review to write - there were so many good points to this house, but several areas need some attention. I would have to suggest to the resort managers that they consider taking a couple weeks and doing some maintenance. I guess I'll do the bad first because I want the good points to be most memorable. Okay, here we go (had to shorten b/c character limit) The elevator did not work for the first 4 days. We finally flagged down a truck that was next door from the rental agency and he came over and fixed it (one interior door was not completely shut). We called property manager and they sent someone but he couldn't fix it and just left. We requested chairs for the balcony, never got them. The waterfall in the pool does not work. The lights/sound in the hot tub do not work. Broken lounge chair at the pool, and the bottom of the pool was all chipped with huge spots of missing paint. The tile around the top edge of the pool is coated in scum and needs a thorough cleaning. Bugs floated out of the pool filter, which we explained to the pool boy. He said he would turn the filter power up, but bugs continued to float back out of the filter so we spent a LOT of time cleaning the pool. There was a septic smell that drifted around the pool area occasionally that was really unpleasant. There is an outdoor sink/fish cleaning station next to the shower near the pool. There is a wasp nest under the sink. The palmetto bug problem is the worst we've experienced in Florida, although I'm not sure if anything can be done about that, but I had to mention it because we rented a house last year and seen one of these bugs the entire week. On a normal night here we would come out on the balcony and see at least 20, and found several in the house. The can opener was missing from the kitchen. We constantly ran out of ice, so maybe a larger ice maker would be useful. We requested an outdoor table of some sort because we like eating near the pool on family vacations, never got one. Mattresses need replacement, they were very hard. The good - very close to beach, beautiful view, beautiful landscape, great house layout, huge balconies, the stars at night are incredible, loved the game cabinet and the kitchen, and the shell collection at the entrance and on the shelf above the stairs, guard at entrance to community, the Beach(!) is perfection. Fortunately for us, the good far outweighed the bad and I would stay here again. Maintenance is all that is needed."

  • Wonderful vacation at Morningside by the Sea!

    "We greatly enjoyed our stay at Morningside by the Sea. The home was very clean and ready for our arrival. The home had (has) a well-stocked kitchen in terms of utensils, pots, pans, etc. The beds were great and had (has) nice linens. The owner of the unit was a pleasure to deal with as was the rental firm. The beach is a very close walk nearby. I like that the unit is in a gated community; there were never more than 5-6 other people nearby on the beach (first week of April). This unit is great for families with teenagers who need their own space, or for a couple looking for a romantic getaway. But I wouldn't recommend this unit for families with small children as the two smaller bedrooms are on the 1st floor and the MBR is on the 2nd floor. I would also not recommend this property for older folks (or those with knee problems or other disabilities, etc.) who may have trouble navigating the tight narrow stairwell up to the 2nd floor where the MBR, kitchen, and family room are relocated. A suggestion for the owner would be to dramatically improve the LCD TV (incredibly small, and poor reception) & DVD combo in the family area. The home also has a very nice large screened in porch with a picnic table, rocking chairs, etc. (but again on the 2nd floor). Lots of stair-climbing in this home. But would definitely stay here again! Just a note that there are no restaurants in the gated community, and only a handful outside the gated community on St. George Island. If you're looking for 'night life' or a wide selection of eateries, St. George isn't the place (4-5 restaurants on the island, plus a Subway sandwich shop). But if you're looking for a quaint small mostly undeveloped community where everyone is friendly and you can feel safe, then I highly suggest St. George Island!"

  • Wedding Stay

    "We enjoyed the comfortable house and the views from the deck. We walked to the beach everyday and enjoyed looking at the wildlife and oleander and pines. We needed an elevator for one of our guests, so the house was perfect for a handicapped person and one shower even had a seat in it. (Floor in shower slippery so take a bathmat.) Would also be a great house for children with pool right there and beach not far. Thank you for a great beach week."

  • Wonderful beach vacation

    "We had a great stay at "Fit for a King", it was so great to have so many beds to use and comfortable too. Loved all the tile floors. The beach access was so quick and the beach is quiet and perfect. Loved all the bike paths. Definitely recommend!"
