Fabulous family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

A friend recommended Sooner the Better, and I’m so glad she did! This was a charming house with plenty of room for our 3 families! It was so relaxing to sit on the screened porches and listen to the ocean! We liked the openness of the kitchen/den/dining area. The top floor bedroom was my favorite because of the view that you can see from the bed! The kitchen was stocked with plenty of dishes and pots and pans. We only went out to eat one night because it was so easy to cook there. The location was perfect. We had several young children and didn’t have to worry about them crossing a busy street to get to the beach (which is just a quick walk). It’s perfect for riding bikes around there since there’s little traffic. We loved having the private pool too! It was so much easier staying in this house rather than a high-rise condo somewhere! I highly recommend Sooner the Better! We look forward to staying there again soon!

The Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This house is the PERFECT destination for family time and relaxation! We recently made our third visit to this beach house and cannot wait to go back again!

The home is perfect for a family, lots of room for a large family or a couple of families (we took another family with us on our last visit). The open layout is great, the décor is charming and the location is AMAZING!

The screened porches are so relaxing (there are 3!) - you can watch the kids in the pool or just listen to the waves.....bliss! All the bedrooms have adjoining bathrooms, and great island touches - (the upstairs bedroom has an amazing view!).

The beach is steps away from the front door and there are never big crowds. We love to watch the dolphins swim by during the day, fly kites and often end our days with the kids at the pool or enjoying a sunset on the beach.

If you want a night out - the island has lots of great seafood to enjoy! (Try a Sandblaster at the Blue Parrot Ocean Front Café). There are also some wonderful shops nearby and it is a short drive to a sea life facility that our kids love to visit!

This house was a wonderful find for us and we will come back again and again!

Heaven On Earth, Shabby Chic Style

  • 5 of 5

This is my favorite house on SGI!!! My family and I have been going to St. George for 20 years, we found this gem 4 years ago and have gone back every year, sometimes 2x a year!!! The decor is so cute and cozy, shabby chic feel but it is also such a practical house for a large family or a family to share with grandparents or another small family! Plenty of space to be together or alone for quiet time. I love the lay out of the home with the big open living room and kitchen. There are 3 ADORABLE bedrooms down the hall and a very pretty master on the main level. The three screen porches off of every bedroom are absolutely amazing and provide many comfortable spaces to relax. Upstairs is another cozy bed with bathroom and sitting room. This room is cute, quiet and has a great view! Oh and the pool and under house parking area are a bonus! LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS HOUSE!

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My family has had the pleasure of staying in this wonderful home numerous times in the past three years. The home is very accommodating, even to larger groups. We have invited another family to join us on several occasions and there was more than enough room for everyone.

Days are spent on the uncrowded beaches of The Plantation where it is not uncommon to have several hundred feet of coastline all to yourself. Evenings around the pool or one of the screened porches enjoying a glass of wine with friends are a great way to relax.

We have found the well equipped kitchen and open living area to be a great area to enjoy family and friends. And if someone doesn’t enjoy the beach, the home has numerous televisions, stereos, and wifi to entertain them. It truly has something for everyone.

With all the amenities and proximity to the beach, this home is one of the best values in The Plantation. We can’t wait to get back to our “home” at the beach.

Honeymoon!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I honeymooned at this house in January 2012 and without a doubt it was the greatest trip we could have taken. The house was absolutely gorgeous and extremely comfortable and very homey. Every morning my wife and I would wake up and go for a nice walk on the beach and with it being so close, it was great and every night we would sit on the deck and just listen to the waves come crashing in on the beach and it was so peaceful. I would recommend this house for anyone looking for a place on the beach that feels just like home and for anyone that just wants to have fun! There is plenty to do in the area and you will always keep yourself busy.

We could not have asked for a better honeymoon trip and cannot wait until we can go back with our son.
