A perfect vacation
our overall experience at 656 West Pine ave. was delightful. The house was lovely and only a short walk to the beach. We enjoyed our 2 mile walks each day. The kitchen was well appointed with every thing we needed to prepare our meals. We hope to return another year to the same property. Thank you Jim
Excellent pool area
Excellent pool area in one of the greatest places on earth.
The property was perfect for our family. We enjoyed our stay very much.
The home was exactly as expected. The pool was perfect for our family especially our 3 year old, the wading area was super nice to have for him. We cooked a good bit at the house and all of their cooking doshes/pans/utensils were clean and well kept.
The house is close to the beach, but it is a bit of a walk and you must cross the main road, but we had a golf cart which made it very easy.
I would suggest packing a few extra wash cloths and towels when you come. There was 1 provided for each person (6). Although with kids we bathed everynight and ended up doing a lot of laundry just for wash cloths and towels. It's not really a con, just something to know, most all homes only provide a certain number.
There are a lot of stairs, but most all of the homes are set up that way, it wasn't too bad, but we knew there would be stairs when we booked.
Overall, it was a great home if you are looking for a home to rent.
Great place to stay! We loved our time at the beach. We even rode out a tropical storm. The pool was fantastic! The view is amazing. Great screened in porch. Really nice place to stay. It is close to everything. This was our first time to St. George Island and loved every minute of it. If you have really small kids the stairs can be a issue. We have a four and one year old and it was a challenge sometimes but found ways to make it work. The owners are fantastic and had no problem with anything. Very close to the beach,and had plenty of parking. We can't wait to go back.
Beautiful beach house
We really enjoyed our stay, the ocean views were perfect. We saw dolphins one morning from the upper deck. My granddaughter loved the pool. We will be back
Nice vacation with a few words of advice
Overall, this was one of our favorite vacations. However, I will offer some advice to anyone considering this location. For one, the property is nice but there are a ton of stairs. The first floor is just a foyer with a bench. Walk up a flight of stairs and you have the bedrooms. Walk up another flight of stairs and you have the kitchen and living room. If you are in the pool and forget a drink, you have to walk up all those stairs. We did this MANY times and it got old fast. Also, the food choices on the island were so limited we left the island for almost every single meal except lunch, which was Subway 5 times in one week!! Needless to say, I don't want Subway for a long time. The places we tried to eat at on the island were terrible and we walked out of a few of them without eating. We bought groceries and ate most meals across the bridge in Appalachicola.
The house is a good walking distance to the beach though and you can see it from the very top which was nice.
I will say that the letter we got before our stay, telling us all the rules to follow had us so worried about our trip we could not relax at all. We have rented houses many times and never had that kind of... do this, this and this, and by the way i'm watching you because I live on the island, mentality. There must be at least a half a dozen things you can do to get yourself removed without refund. I question why you are renting your house out because I don't think you really want to. Needless to say, I felt the need to spend my last day of vacation thoroughly cleaning your house. Never had to do this before. Also, if you want all the bedding left in bags then you should provide them. Will not rent from them again and most likely never go back to the island either. Had a nice time with family but will choose elsewhere next time.
FIrst of all, let me say, this is a wonderful home with great views of the beach. We purchased this home and put in an awesome pool area so that people would have a great beach vacation, with less expense than staying on the beach. Our rules and regulations are the exact same from 3 other rental companies on the island because we combined all of them. The rules and regulations are also listed on VRBO before you check out, because you have to say that you read them before you can stay at our home. We do not ask that you DEEP CLEAN the home before you leave, the rules state to tidy the home. There are clothes hampers in every closet to leave the sheets in. The house is two blocks from the beach. We do live on the island, and we do not "Watch" people. We have never done and that never would. I can not comment on restaurants on the island. We have been coming here for over 40 years now and we love this island and would never say anything bad about it. It is a great place to live and a great place to be. It sounds like to me nothing really makes you happy., and you dont have to worry about not staying at one of our homes again.
Newly furnished home on the rental market with great views of the gulf. Conveniently located 2 short blocks from the beach on a corner lot with direct access to a boardwalk straight to the beach. This home is a 3 bedroom 2 1/2 bath. A private pool with a pergola and seating area in the pool. Across the street from a 18 mile long bike trail. It is within walking distance to all restaurants, shops, basketball court, St. George lighthouse and much much more.
