Bayside Beauty

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sapelo. The house is spacious, the kitchen is well stocked, the dock and white sandy beach area are fabulous. Almost every night the sunsets were exquisite. When we did have a question about the cable the owners responded quickly. Biking/walking throughout the plantation is so enjoyable on the pathways and access to the Gulf beach is so easy using the nature paths. We are planning to return to SGI and will definitely stay at Sapelo again.

Another Wonderful Stay at Sapelo

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay at Sapelo and, as always, we had a great time in this very special property in the St. George Island Plantation.

The house is clean and well maintained, the location is very quiet and private, and the kitchen is well equipped. Since we had children and grandchildren as well as close friends visit us during our stay one nice feature about the house that we really appreciate is that the design allows everyone to spend time together (large living room and adjacent porch with a great view of Apalachicola Bay) when they wish or to enjoy the privacy and quiet provided by the layout of the bedrooms. When folks want to be outside the dock and beach (unusual for a bay front home) are very nice and right out the back door. The sunsets from the porch or out on the dock are spectacular and on a clear night the stars are stunning.

Although we rarely have had questions about the house the owners have always been easy to contact and quick to reply with helpful answers. A great stay, very relaxing, and we're definitely looking forward to our next visit to Sapelo!

Fantastic house that accommodated two families very well.

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved the sunsets from the dock. Crabbing and watching all of the sea birds was great fun. The kitchen was stocked with the best cookware I’ve encountered in a rental ever. The walk to the big beach was shorter than expected. Loved it!

Amazing week!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED Sapelo! We had the most enjoyable week there with our family. Tons of room for everyone, the kitchen was equipped with everything needed and the views were amazing. We laid on the deck every night and watched the amazing sunsets and stars. It’s close to the Plantation pool and beach, but my children LOVED being bayside. They fished every available moment and saw so much sea life. It was one of our best weeks ever. It was our first trip to St George Island and we will for sure be back!

This place is amazing! Our family made so many wonderful memories this past week.

  • 5 of 5

The views on the bay, the sunsets, the home was so comfortable and homey - this was a week we will never forget. My elderly parents relaxed and enjoyed the back screened porch. My kids and their spouses loved kayaking, fishing and crabbing from the dock. We all loved the beach, pool and tennis courts. Dad read one of the table books about the history of the island and fell in love with SGI. My grandkids want to live there with me forever.
