My Happy Place
Loved the location . Love the island. Property was a bit more run down than the pictures exhibited . Not clean upon arrival , but a 2nd cleaning team was sent out. Property manager was wonderful and replied to any issues very promptly.
Great Beach House - Cleanliness Needs some attention
Our group included 6 adults and 4 Children. The Children ranged in ages of 2-6. We were the second family to rent the house after rentals reopened from the pandemic.
On arrival, the house just wasn’t clean. I expected better, particularly in the Covid situation. The main living area floors were very dirty, our feet were basically black the whole trip. We tried to clean but there really weren’t any cleaning supplies except a broom. The pull out couch was full of food from previous guests. The towels had some very noticeable staining. The dishwasher had a lot of food in the bottom. The pantry had a lot of appliances but they were really dirty.
Aside from the cleanliness, the house had plenty of positives that still provided for an enjoyable time. The house is located about 4 houses from the beach and a straight shot from beach access. Views were nice! The two queen bedrooms are a little tight but functional and the Master is a nice size with a very large closet. The twin room slept the 3 older children comfortably. The kitchen was open to dining area and we found the dining room to be adequate to seat our whole family and the bench was particularly convenient for the kids. The screened in porch off the dining room was a favorite place to hang out. The open decking was also nice although the decking is kind of rough and you definitely need to wear shoes on it. Every deck had a pleasant view and good breeze. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking and eating needs. The bathroom and shower near the pool was great! The area under the house made a nice staging area for beach stuff. Plenty of space to comfortably park 3 vehicles. The washer and dryer on the first floor was great and the elevator a plus for unpacking.
Other Items that would have made the stay better: The stairs came right off the dining area, we were constantly worried that one of the kids would backup and fall down the stairs. There was a baby gate but it was the tension style and wouldn’t really hold up if a child leaned on it. The addition of a half door that you could shut and latch would remedy this safety concern. The pool area seating was inadequate and uncomfortable. We ended up putting our beach chairs in the pool enclosure for seating. There was a nice umbrella to shade us and overall the pool was functional for what we needed. The house is advertised for 10 people but only seating for 5 in the living room (a couch and 2 chairs).
Great House and Location for Groups
We had three families that stayed at this house and it was just the right size. We even found a couple of closets large enough for our babies' Pack n' Plays. The outdoor/deck space was great and very roomy. The pool area was nice. It was pretty basic and could use a scrubbing, but it worked fine to keep the kids occupied. The walk to the beach was not far and it was easy to run back and forth to the house. The kitchen was well-stocked and had plenty of room. Our only complaint was the slow coffee maker. It took forever to make a pot of coffee, much less two. The other coffee maker didn't appear to work any better. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to others!
Loved the house!!
House is beautiful and very close to the beach. Owner was very nice.
Great getaway for 8 people. Must be able to do stairs. Kitchen and living area on top floor.
Great property. One block from beach but you have ocean view.
You are located at 1181 W Gorrie Drive. Gorrie Drive is the road that goes down the center of St. George Island. There is a bike path that is located directly next to this road. You are at the corner of 12th street, right before the St. George Island Plantation Gate. You are minutes (less than 5!) from the beach- within walking distance , to the 12th street beach access. A few minutes car ride to the St. George Island Light house & visitor's center. Less than 5 minutes to shops, & restaurants!
