My family had an awesome week at The Sapelo House!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week staying at The Sapelo Home. It is beautiful on the inside and out! There were 10 of us that stayed there and a couple that came to visit. I love that we had the large dinning table so that we could all sit together as a family. Plenty of room for everyone. The kitchen was great, had everything we needed, pots, pans, and plenty of dishes, just like being at home. With this many people, we cooked in most of the time.

We caught some crabs at the end of the dock and a enough fish for a meal. We did see some sting rays and a small shovel-nose shark! Lots of Hermit crabs. We rented a boat and got to see a pod of about 20 dolphins, they put on a show for us. Playing and even jumping completely out of the water. Awesome site!

Everyone that we saw at the beach & pool were very friendly and helpful.

Such a nice quite peaceful place. I understand why my Dad was always so fond of St George's Island. We will be coming back again.

Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us!

Hi Denise,

Thank you for sharing your home with us. I enjoyed spending quality time with my family in such a peaceful setting. No car noise, very little people noise, and due to the channel being so far out in the bay no boat noise. Its such an unusual thing to have no noise pollution in today's modern world. Absolutely loved the quiet setting. My only disappointed was the fact that the dock is not very useful for fishing or boating as the water seems to be too shallow now. We rented a boat for 3 days but could not use the dock as it was impossible to get to the dock in the shallow water. This is something I would have liked to known about prior to our purchase. As a result of the shallow water I think it would be a nice gesture if the kayaks were offered at no charge so people could move around a bit to fish the docks. Overall its a great place and I would recommend to people that were not interested in fishing from the shallow dock or boating but rather just a beautiful home in a private quiet setting. Thanks again

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed the peaceful setting. I'm sorry the dock and fishing didn't meet your expectations the week you were there. The tides do fluctuate a little but the fishing has always been good from the dock as other renters and ourselves have enjoyed. We are able to use our 27' off shore fishing boat each time we are at the house. As you can see from other reviews, guests have enjoyed boating and fishing from the dock.

Best Spot On The Bay!!

  • 5 of 5

Sapelo is simply fantastic! We have stayed in the Plantation several times and Sapelo is by far our favorite spot. Our most beloved feature was the wonderful sandy private beach. The house itself was great with a lot of space and well appointed accommodations. It gave our two families a lot of room to spread out. Denise was great to work with and I highly recommend renting the kayaks and paddle boat from her. Sapelo will be our first choice every time we visit SGI.

Wonderful Visit to St. George Island

  • 5 of 5

Our second visit to Sapelo was just a good as last year, maybe even better because the weather was so nice. The house is beautiful, in a great private location, very clean, well maintained, has a well equipped kitchen, and is designed to accommodate groups of visitors while providing excellent privacy. The owners are friendly and are always available to answer questions and help out if needed. Overall, just a pleasant relaxing experience and we're already looking ahead to our next visit!

Four old fishermen

  • 5 of 5

This is the nicest house I have ever rented at St. George's and believe me, I have rented MANY!

The owner has done a wonderful job with the interior furnishings, the view of the bay is breathtaking, bedrooms are spacious, beds very comfortable and large space for parking. My first look on my next excursion.
