Very nice property, comfortable, made for a great vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Sand Dollar. The room arrangements and elevator worked very well for party. Our first day at the beach was overshadowed by rain and wind from a tropical storm, so we enjoyed reading and working puzzles at the house. The upstairs deck was a great place to enjoy the ocean breeze and view the beach at all times of the day. The kitchen is well stocked and organized and accommodated multiple cooks at one time, if you have a group of "chefs" as we did. The pool offered another way to enjoy the sunny weather when the currents were too rough. And lastly, the fishers in our group enjoyed being near The Cut so they could indulge their interests. We appreciated being able to bring our little Corgi girl Sugar, and she certainly enjoyed her beach experience too.

Sand Dollar Does Not Disappoint!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Sand Dollar! The home is very comfortably furnished and has updated finishes and appliances. The multi-level layout lends to plenty of privacy which worked well for our mixture of friends, family, and a 6 month old. VERY roomy! The open concept of the top floor is a great place to gather to enjoy the views and share food and drinks. The multiple decks provide access to expansive views of the ocean and surrounding plantation. We had several cars, bicycles, and paddle boards that were easily stored under the house. The elevator makes it easy to load and unload all of your luggage! The outdoor shower is great to have after playing all day. The beach is a very short stroll to an easy walkway to cross the dunes. If you don't want to visit the beach, you can enjoy the private secluded pool and hot tub. And of course you can't beat the quiet and security of staying in the Plantation. At Sand Dollar, you will feel very much at home on vacation.

Peaceful Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Sand Dollar was amazing! The house was very roomy and a wonderful place for our family. The pool is where we spent most of our time, but the beach was only a short 3 minute walk away. Each morning we watched dolphins swimming in the ocean from the second floor deck. I can't think of even one complaint about the house. It was perfect for a peaceful and relaxing vacation. The owners are very professional and easy to work with. My nephew left a couple of items and they were shipped back to us very promptly. I will definitely be returning to the Sand Dollar!!

Great family vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

Sand Dollar is a wonderful spot for a family to vacation together. The house is beautiful, well-maintained and well equipped. The beds and furniture are comfortable. The pool is the nicest we have seen at St. George Island. The porches are breezy and great for afternoon naps. Krista was extremely responsive to the one small problem we encountered. My only suggestion is to get a collapsible wagon to haul the kids' toys, towels, umbrellas etc. to the beach.

Great Place for Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family recently stayed at Sand Dollar in the Plantation on St. George Island. This property is a great fit for a variety of reasons. First, of all the location in the Plantation neighborhood offers great seclusion and security on what is already a secluded island in the Gulf of Mexico. The house itself is located near the end of the island, so traffic and other vacationers are limited to only those on the immediate streets around you.

The property is in great condition inside and out. The 3 level home offers space for everyone in the family to enjoy (we had 3 adult couples, a baby, and a dog). The top level offers a huge kitchen/dining/family room with views of the ocean. The outdoor pool area is a nice escape from the hot & humid weather right out the back door.

We did walk down to the beach and it took no more than three minutes even when carrying beach chairs/umbrellas and a baby. The beach is beautiful and has very few beach goers, offering a chance to enjoy the view in peace.

The island overall is a wonderful place to relax, but also to have fun. We ventured to the main restaurant/shop area many times (about a 7-10 minute drive from the house) and really enjoyed the nightlife. Krista was very helpful with a list of places to go and things to see on the island before hand as well as communicating with any questions we came up with.

Final note, we took a fishing charter with SGI Charters and Capt. Coble. I would highly recommend this, as it was a great experience and we caught some HUGE fish we were able to eat throughout the week.
