Beautiful!!!! We love "A Gift From the Sea"!

  • 5 of 5

We had some small things that didn't work or in need of fixing, but we were able to resolve those things because the Team at. VRBO made certain that they were taken care of to our satisfaction! VRBO HAS A GREAT TEAM OF PEOPLE WORKING TO REPRESENT THEM & THEY DO AN EXCELLENT JOB. I especially want to thank the staff that was in the office while we were here this week for being so courteous and accommodating (4-15/4-22)!

We will definitely return in August to enjoy more of the peace & tranquility of ST. GEORGE ISLAND,FLORIDA

Each time we come, we try to bring friends with us that need some part of the feel of St. George and they always leave with St. George in their blood!

Exceeded expectations!!

  • 5 of 5

1st visit to St George Island & certainly not the last. Pictures of this property really don't do it proper justice. It was perfect, beautifully furnished & decorated. The deck, gulf views and sunrises were amazing. Exactly what I was looking for ....isolation, relaxation. As we were scheduled to arrive 2 days after the hurricane, we were very concerned, the property management company did a wonderful job of staying in touch & keeping us informed. Prior to booking, I had a number of questions. The property owner contacted me almost immediately. I can't find the slightest item to complain about & am planning on booking again for next year.

how fabulous our stay was! The house was perfect!! The views are absolutely breathtaking! The easy access to the beach (you're literally right there) and the pool made the vacation a wonderful experience. The house is located in a gated community, so the beach is very quiet and peaceful. There were maybe 10 people within several miles of the property, so it's almost like having the beach all to yourself. If you're looking for lots to do and enjoy filling your time with busy activities, St. George Island is not the place for you. There's only a small grocery store, a handful of restaurants, and a couple of souvenir shops on the island. However, if you're looking for a place to get away from it all and slow life down just enough to enjoy the simple pleasures like the sound of ocean waves, the beauty of the stars at night, and the wonderful sights of all the sea critters you can possibly imagine, then St. George Island is definitely the place to be! We would do it all over again in a heartbeat if we could! Thank you for sharing your home with was an incredible experience!

Wonderful Month of Rest and Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Gift by the Sea is a wonderful property for two people who need to get away by themselves and recharge their batteries. Each night we heard the surf (kept bedroom sliding door open) as we went to sleep. Great views from the living area. Great beach/surf walking. All items needed readily accessible.

Good value

  • 5 of 5

The house was great - so was the pool. House was immaculate when we arrived. The elevator was great (once we learned how to use it.) Kitchen set up was very convenient - would recommend getting more silverware (no teaspoons were available.) One other recommendation would be to put a hand rail on deck to help arthritis afflicted people enter pool safely. Beach access perfect.
