Recent Plantation reviews

  • 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."

  • Fantastic View

    "My family had a great time at Down Time! We loved it. The Plantation is the place to stay. So quite and not crowded. Saw dolphins everyday. The house is very spacious with a great kitchen with granite counter tops. Everything you could possibly need! You will love this house and location. Thanks Mike! We'll be back!"

  • What a great place to stay

    "We just returned from our trip to St George and Flying High. Everything was perfect! Your description says the kitchen is well stocked; that does not do it justice. The house was just the right size giving amble room to spread out. We cooked, enjoyed the views, the pool and beach. None of our group wanted to leave. All of the outdoor living areas are fabulous. It was a perfect week and we thank you! We hope to return again next fall."

  • Snow Bird Get-a-Way

    "We spent March 2014 here and it was great. The house is most comfortable and the views from the dock out onto the Apalachicola Bay are outstanding. The walks from the bay to the beach, morning and evening, made for a perfect exercise routine offering beautiful sunrises and sunsets! Owners are easy to deal with and the Planation is a well managed gated community with a terrific workout room and beautiful pool - though a cold March precluded any swimming! You can bike from one end of the St. George Island to the other on a dedicated bike trail and the kayak dock that comes with this property was perfect. Apalachicola is a cool town with some great restaurants and an interesting history."
