  • Perfect Vacation!!

    "Our family of 20 just returned from this wonderful property, it is hard to know where to begin this review as it so perfect and no-one wanted to leave this serene beautiful spot. The house was lovely and spacious, you could totally relax with the sound of the rapids at the back door and wonderful views of the river from the three decks, we all loved the huge swing on the middle deck and drew straws to see who would get to sleep on it. How neat to be able to take all the provided tubes and kayaks up river and float right to your back door, it was so much fun watching all the grandkids learn to kayak, they loved it. We all enjoyed watching all the geese feeding in the rapids everyday and seeing all the deer as you drove around the property, they are everywhere. If you want a little excitement in your life a rafting trip on the Ocoee River is a must, if your really up for some adventure do the upper section as it is where the Atlanta summer Olympics were held and it is rough but the ones in our group that did it said they'd do it again. The middle section is a little calmer but not much. There are lots of of great places to visit within an hours drive but in reality most people will just want to hang out at the house and enjoy what there is there whether it's winter or summer, I would love to go back in the fall. As you can tell I am in love with this place and hope we can return in the near future. Thank you so much Ian and Sarah for sharing this peace of heaven with us!"

  • 25th Anniversary Trip

    "We just returned from a wonderful week's stay at Shooting Star Falls! We debated between going to the beach or to the mountains and decided on this beautiful home in Big Canoe. It was definitely a home and not a cabin and we were so impressed with the furnishings and the way it was so beautifully decorated. It was just the two of us and we were able to enjoy quiet mornings with breakfast on the screened in patio listening to the waterfalls before going out on new adventures each day. We could easily have stayed two weeks trying to see everything in the area, but we will have to return. Mark was such a great host and was so accommodating. We couldn't find a corkscrew to open our wine, so he overnighted one to the front door! We felt like we were renting from a friend, and it was so much nicer than going through a company. We would highly recommend this property to anyone that enjoys first class accommodations in a quiet and private setting surrounded by God's natural beauty. We can't wait to go back!"

  • Joyce & Jerry

    "The "My Ship Ahoy" condo was great! Very spacious and cutely decorated in a "beachy" theme. We enjoyed sitting out on the deck and watching the big ships come in and watching birds dive for their food. It was a little for out to see the dolphins, but there was a nice access to the beach and you can see the dolphins dancing up close. The only drawback we had was the TV in the bedroom was not working. All in all it was a very nice weekend and we will revisit."

  • Great Stay

    "Some friends and I came down for three days to relax on Tybee and explore Savannah. This was a great place to do both! The condo was super cute and had everything we needed.. it was also very close to the beach! There were lots of things close by (all within a few blocks) and it was very easy to get a taxi into Savannah. Great place to relax and enjoy the beach. We would all definitely come back!"

Georgia Travel Tips

Whether discovering live music in Atlanta or romance along cobblestone streets of Savannah, Georgia offers a place for everyone. From renowned museums to strolling through the squares of antebellum architecture. Its moderate climate makes vacationing here perfect year-round. Take a look at the top five cities to see for yourself.


The capital of the Peach State, Atlanta boasts more than just a vibrant music scene and happenin’ nightlife. Recharge and refresh at the World of Coca-Cola for a history of the globe’s most famous soft beverage. The kids will be in awe at the Georgia Aquarium, which is the world’s largest. It holds more than 60 habitats, tens of thousands of animals and more than 10 million gallons of fresh and marine water. Your family will not want to miss the new dolphin gallery for a musical and theatrical performance highlighting both dolphins and humans.The Fox Theatre is an ideal spot for a romantic night out on the town, recently restored to a classy 1920s look meant for Broadway musicals, dance performances and comedy shows. Last but not least, keep the blues alive at Blind Willies, named after the talented Georgia songwriter. This venue calls in both local and national acts. If you brought your drum sticks, you can sit in on a jam session at Cafe 290, exploding with swing that’ll keep you on your foot. Rock ‘n’ rollers, don’t skip out on Star Community Bar, which has celebrity guest bartenders and a variety of different shows.


The town of Augusta is rich with heritage. Take a picture with a statue of James Brown, Soul Brother No. 1, who grew up along these streets. Golfers, brace yourself for the Augusta National Golf Course, the world-renowned home of the Master’s Tournament. Applewood Golf Course is perfect for hitting links without the lofty expectation. Make your way to Augusta Canal Food, Fabric and Fire for an in-depth look at Augusta’s major role in supplying Confederate troops during the Civil War. Tours start at 1:30 p.m. and last an hour. Relax as you head across the Augusta Riverwalk that weaves over the Savannah River, which is dotted with beautiful azaleas. For a shot of inspiration, Artists Row features working art studios, galleries where you can purchase one-of-a-kind items and tasty eateries that’ll be sure to hit the spot.


Take a stroll down the Riverwalk for a stunning view of the riverside town of Columbus. Sharpen your senses at the National Civil War Naval Museum, where you’ll see full-scale recreation of battle ships and hear stories of Confederate warships and Union fleets. If you’re looking for some adventure, book a trip white-water rafting along the Chattahoochee River, crowned the largest urban white-water rafting course on the planet. The Coca-Cola Space Science Center offers a planetarium where you can gaze at stars and take on simulated Challenger missions. Don’t forget to see a show at the River Center for the Performing Arts for an electric set of acts spanning from Yoyo Ma to Cirque Eloize to comedian Gabriel Iglesias. For a late-night bite to eat, sneak by The Loft for everything from delicious crab cakes to bacon burgers. It’s good for jazz and drinks too.


Originally opened as a seaport in the 1700s, Savannah today is still brimming with river cruises, carriage rides and plenty of scrumptious seafood. Its romantic cobblestone streets make the city a must-visit for lovers old and young. Experience the historic squares on foot as you wander along through the city steeped in Colonial heritage. Or, head to Explore Savannah, a private tour, to learn about the behind-the-scenes stories of the alleys and architecture, as the city was the first Colonial capital of Georgia. Bonaventure Cemetery, a bedrock of the city, offers crypts and a sort of haunting beauty which has inspired a score of poets, writers, photographers and filmmakers for years. For travelers coming off the 9 to 5 lifestyle, embrace the slowed-down pace of Savannah culture.


Athens combines a bustling college campus with sweet Southern comfort. It is home to R.E.M. and the B-52s and has been ranked by Rolling Stone as the “No. 1 College Music Scene in America.” After your fair share of music, set your mind at in ease in the State Botanical Garden of Georgia, a 313-acre preserve with walkways and blooming camellias that will send any nature lover swooning. The antebellum architecture of the city shares tales by itself, but is only made more fascinating when contrasted with the Victorian-era buildings downtown. Swing through the farmers market for a taste of local produce on the weekends. To get your heart rate back up, go to a University of Georgia Bulldogs game in Sanford Stadium - even tailgating here is sure to be a good time.

Visit the state that inspired legendary singer Ray Charles to write “Georgia on my Mind.” As a perfect harmony of urban hot spots and coastal serenity, Georgia offers a vacation that will be sure to stay on your mind too.
