Sapelo island is a treasure
Take a trip back to the simple life. No traffic, a lot of dirt, sandy roads to explore, no high end stores, one local restaurant featuring island food. But lots of culture, extraordinary nature, and history. My Sapelo Island Retreat was perfect! Perfectly appointed, want for nothing, perfectly comfy and clean. Lucy and Mike were informative, unobtrusive hosts that care about their guests. Mike took us on a tour that was both delightful and educational, full of local color. They allow use of one of their vehicles so you can discover on your own. You can spend three days there, as we did, and never tire of the of the scenery. What a relaxing, satisfying time! Just what we wanted!
The perfect place to unwind and connect with family or friends
We had an amazing stay with Lucy and Mike. Their cozy apartment was perfect for our family of 3. Everything was clean and the kitchen was well-stocked. The rental fee includes a car, which was great, and bikes and beach gear. Sapelo Island was just incredible, if you like empty beaches, sand roads, and having a lot of free time to wander and relax.
Well-equipped apt, gracious hosts
This upstairs apt is cozy and inviting, and has everything a couple might need. The hosts provide car and bicycle transportation, a map, and helpful advice. The island itself is charming, almost pristine; this rental is located near the historic Hog Hammock community (slave descendants) and the only store on the island (a small convenience store--pack some groceries when you visit!). Beaches are gorgeous. The R.J. Reynolds mansion is impressive. My grandsons and I enjoyed the nature trail, too, and I recommend it.
I really did feel that I left the world behind. Conveniently located for day trips to Savannah and some of the other barrier Islands, Sapelo Island also offered it's own incredible get away. Everyone we encountered was friendly and helpful. Lucy and Mike are wonderful hosts. I definitely want to return
An amazing experience
The property itself is good. The toilet flushes and the water is hot. The appliances all work. The bed is comfortable. What makes this special aside from the Sapelo experience itself is that Lucy and Mike leave you alone to explore and learn about the island. They are well known and respected by the Hog Hammock Community and if there is anything happening, they know about it and can point you to it. I would stay with them again in a heartbeat.
We stayed in Sapelo for the weekend and had a wonderful time. The apartment was wonderful and having a car to get around in made all the difference. The island is magically relaxing and beautiful. Be sure to pack in your meals and beverages! We will definitely be back.
My Sapelo Retreat is on Sapelo Island which is 4 1/2 mi. from the mainland. On the Island there is only 1 small convenience store and a post office. Several of the things I have commented on are in the historic fishing village of Darien, a frequent overnight before the trip over to Sapelo. For instance, there is a great little salon and spa, Eternity Salon and Spa, in Darien. The restaurants I've commented on are in Darien and there is a fine gourmet wine and cheese store and wine bar there, Waterfront Wine and Gourmet on the waterfront on Broad Street. Some types of activities require hiring a guide, deep sea fishing, kayaking, scuba diving but I can connect you with the folks who do those things. Just ask! I'll be glad to answer your questions.
