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!

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.

Negative outweighs the positive

  • 3 of 5

Let me start by saying it is a spacious home. It is nicely situated on the bay in a quiet neighborhood. The sunsets were spectacular. The fishing was fun but with little success (we weren't as good as we hoped!). Crabbing was a success too.

We only had five staying in the house and found cooking to be a challenge. The pots and pans weren't plentiful or large enough. I was shocked to see there wasn't even any salt or pepper in the house. There were no cleaning supplies to keep the kitchen tidy. Dishes in the cabinet were put away dirty. There was no ice in the icemaker on our arrival. Supplies for the home are only enough to get you started and not enough for a week.

I've stayed at other vacation rentals and haven't encountered this before. So, this is why I am disappointed this time.

Owner's Response: Just a reminder that you received, signed and returned an email prior to your arrival that included information about our home, directions, key code, grocery stores, "Suggested household items to bring" and "Items we provide". Among the "Suggested household items to bring" are salt & pepper so I don't know why you were shocked that there were none in the house. Among the "Items we provide" are an INITIAL supply of toilet paper, paper towels, dish liquid, dishwasher soap and laundry detergent. You may recall that I responded quickly to several questions you had about the house prior to arrival, including a request for early check-in. When guests pack their cooler to leave the house they empty the ice maker and there are only a few hours before another guest checks in. For that reason, I will add to my list that guests may want to pick up a bag of ice when they arrive on the island. I have reminded my housekeeper to keep an eye out for dishes put away dirty by previous guests. Sounds like some of my larger pots and pans are missing. There have always been ample, including 3 large stock pots to the right of the stove. I will need to check my inventory. If you had contacted me during your stay I could've provided additional pots and pans to make your stay more pleasant.

Great family vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful home in an awesome part of the country. So much wildlife and marine life in the area. Kitchen was well equipped, we cooked for 8-9 people all week.

Slightly disappointed in the 5th "loft bedroom"... its a bed on the landing outside the two twin bedrooms. We were expecting the "loft" to be on a different floor by itself.

We made it work and an enjoyable time was had by all! Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Perfect bay location!

  • 5 of 5

Sapelo has a perfect location on the bay. The sunsets are spectacular, the pier is solid, and the sandy beach area is a plus. This was our second stay at Sapelo, and we hope to return again.

Sapelo is our paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting Sapelo for years, and it is our favorite vacationing home out of all the others we rent. The water is deep enough at the private dock to bring our 25 foot center console. It is also nice that you can view the dock from the house, which is not the case with most bayside homes on SGI. It appears beach sand was brought in to make a private beach area right out the back door, even though the beach on the gulf side is only two blocks away, its a nice plus. We rented the two kayaks and launched them daily. It sleeps ten, and I love the fact that it has two king suites with private baths. The kitchen is equipped well, and even has a crockpot. The views are amazing, and I can't say enough in words to give justice to how beautiful! Lastly, Denise, the owner is quick to answer any questions or concerns you may have regarding your stay. We LOVE Sapelo and can't wait for next year!

Owner's Response: I love to hear that you enjoy our place as much as we do! We are fortunate to have our own little beach there thanks to Mother Nature and a little bit of grooming. So glad you are able to stay at Sapelo year after year. Thank you!
