Another Beautiful Week

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful week with our kids and grandchildren at this perfect vacation home on the bay. The backyard with the dock and the bayshore was such a fun time for the little ones, finding hermit crabs, fishing off the dock, exploring in the kayak, and just playing in the sand. The community pool was crystal clear and the beach was beautiful and uncrowded. This was our second time staying at Sapelo. It was very clean and just as nice as the first time two years ago. We love St George Island......laid back and so relaxing!!

Amazing place for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Sapelo was the perfect location for our family. The home was beautiful and had everything you could need in the kitchen for cooking meals for a big group. The kids loved the kayaks and sandy beach right outside the back door. There were hermit crabs, sting ray, dolphins and shark seen just from the dock! The mosquitos were pretty rough, but the owner made sure we were well aware of the issue before we arrived and we had plenty bug spray. We have stayed at several different beach/bay homes in different locations and this was one of the top stays.

Loved the setting of the property! Beautiful sunsets and nice private beach on bay.

  • 4 of 5

The house is as advertised. It was a beautiful house and plenty of room for the 6 of us. It was very nice to have a private beach on the bay, however, the bay is not really somewhere you want to swim given the grass bottom. It's hard to see the lower half of your leg when you walk in and we were afraid we'd step on something. But we did kayak the area and it was a great place for that and for fishing from pier. If we go back to St. George, this place would definitely be considered but we may go with the ocean side just because it affords a bit more opportunity to get in the water. All in all, a very nice house, great location and a great time!

Wonderful week with family

  • 5 of 5

The house was great and met all our needs, plenty of room for everybody, well furnished and with a kitchen that had everything needed for preparing meals, when we did eat in. The screened porch was wonderful for watching sunsets and finding solitude. The backyard beach was perfect for our two two-year old granddaughters and the location of the house provided a quick trip to the cut by boat for fishing and accessing the beach on Little St. George.

It was a perfect week for enjoying grandkids, relaxing with family and totally enjoying ourselves. We will definitely be back.

Gorgeous, spacious home. Perfect for boat owners who also love the beach. Kids will have a blast!

  • 5 of 5

“Heaven on Earth” to quote my husband. I cannot say enough about how wonderful Sapelo was for our family. We purchased a 24’ bay boat several years ago and have not rented an oceanfront home since. My husband and I always leave our 3 small children with their grandmama and rent a bayside property geared towards fishing. This year we decided to pack the whole crew (including grandmama) for a family vacation. I searched on VRBO for the perfect property and Sapelo was it. The dock was great for the boat, for fishing off of, and made a great cannonball jumping platform. The outfoor shower got far more use than the indoor showers but the kids loved “swimming” in the huge jetted jacuzzi tub upstairs. Our favorite part of the entire property was definitely the manmade “beach”. For me, this was the key selling point when deciding on a rental property. Our kids are too young to safely play in the waves of the real beach but love playing in the sand and calm water of the bay. We did make a few trips to Sikes Cut to fish off the jetties and let the kids play on the beach, and the boardwalk/parking area made it an effortless day trip. The sunrises/sunsets here are aways stunning! We never made it to the community pool but did take a look at it on our way out and it is beautiful and HUGE!

The inside of the home was spacious and had plenty of mattresses and extra blankets to allow us to set the kids up anywhere to sleep. We ate every meal on the huge screened in porch. The kitchen was fully stocked for anything we could possible want to cook. All hardwood/tile floors made spills easy to clean up. Numerous, large bathrooms were in perfect condition and the small halfbath off the main living area was a nice convenience.

Sapelo was a dream for our family and I can’t imagine staying anywhere else with the whole crew!

A few potential OFI’s to think about:


More baby gates

Rug for bottom entry (extremely slippery)

Extra/upgraded locks for porch doors

Additional freezer (house only has a small, upper freezer in the kitchen)
