About www.collinsvacationrentals.com (be sure to mention you saw it on VRBO.Com)

Kyle and Ruth Jones have been married for three years. Kyle is in the Real Estate business, and Ruth is a software trainer. If Ruth is not traveling for work she is working from home. Now she can work from the beach! We both love to cook, and we both love seafood! Blue Crab House has many features that appealed to both of us, including the Large Kitchen and Open floor plan. Not to mention access to the freshest seafood in the world!

Why www.collinsvacationrentals.com (be sure to mention you saw it on VRBO.Com) chose St. George Island

We have visited the island many times, and spent our honeymoon here. We have always wanted a beach property, and this property was unique enough to meet our needs. Our house is a three minute walk to the beach right to a beach access peir. We love to take our dogs to play in the water.

What makes this house unique

Center of the island, access to both Bay and Beach, Split level plan, great entertainment kitchen.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Sissy, this is quite long an wordy; it's what I came up with. And all of it

is true.



Blue Crab House



It is always so hard to leave the Island after the wonderful embrace of a

snow-free winter. Now, as I start to put my things away for another summer,

I am already looking forward to returning here again next year. Up to now,

I have never rented the same cottage twice. Not anymore. I already know

where I will be next January and February.



Blue Crab House has been good for me. Here I have peaceful solitude yet

bright serenity. The whimsical colors and cathedral ceilings give a sense

of open freedom and make even grey days bright; while sky lights and ceiling

fans throughout the house give me a sense of almost magical anticipation, as

if angels could appear from the light-and-fan shadows at any minute.



Blue Crab House is simultaneously secluded and accessible. It is only half

a mile from the bridge and less than a five minute walk to the beach, yet

the live oaks give a sense of privacy and freedom as if I owned the whole

island and all of the water surrounding it. Each bedroom has its own Romeo

and Juliet style balcony for a private "cuppa"

first-thing-in-the-morning-magic while everyone else is still sleeping.



On a more practical note, Blue Crab House has a brand new mega-full-size

washer and dryer. And to top it all off, the fantastic kitchen is the best

equipped I have ever rented in fifteen years of staying on the beach. It is

open and bright and well organized. I love cooking up a pot of rice and

stirring up a huge mess of shrimps and veggies or baking a couple of

potatoes and grilling some steaks on the fantastic outdoor propane fired

grill. Everything I need is here from the oven mitt to the long handled

spatula.



I frequently finish my day by the computer with a cup of hot milk and fresh

brownies or muffins; the pans and measuring spoons are all here. And I will

be here, too, next winter; to bake on cold nights and to walk the sand on

warm days. Welcome to my island; welcome to paradise. Welcome to Blue Crab

House.

Blue Crab family vaca

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Blue Crab. The kitchen was well stocked and the decor made us feel right at home. The outdoor shower was great for washing the sand away. TVs in each bedroom was a bonus also as kids could watch a movie on their own at night after a long day at the beach. The property itself was great because the trees provided privacy. My only complaint would be that the beds were a Murphy style and very uncomfortable. Owner had stated that he would be replacing soon.

st. George island is a truly wonderful place, free of chains and corporations. the beauty and hospitality that awaits you on this clean and peaceful island is rejuvenating. the blue crab house is a very short stroll from the beach. the beaches are dog friendly and are never over crowded. at the blue crab, you will find everything you need to create a wonderful vacation. I definitely plan to go back as soon as possible!!

The Blue Crab House

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time to SGI and I am already planning on a return trip in November! We loved the house. We were surprised that everything was white and that you allowed dogs but we loved how bright the white furniture made the house. The kitchen was great and had everything we needed so that we could make our own food. The outside showers were very nice so that we could rinse off the dogs and ourselves. The only thing that would have made the house that much nicer was to have a king sized bed. We know that you advertised a queen but a king would have been great. I would absolutely stay at your lovely home again.

Blue Crab House

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the Blue Crab after getting married on St. George Island the week before. The house was newly painted and it looked great! We had an issue with the shutters blowing in the wind against the house when a small storm blew in, we called the rental company, and they took care of it right away. The house had all the amenities we needed for the week. Kyle, the owner was very helpful with any questions I had. We are looking forward to coming back in the future.
