For years we have gone on family vacations. As the years have gone by so has the family size. It is hard to find a place big enough without breaking the bank. The last 5 years we have stayed on 30A. It is no longer the peaceful area we want for a vacation. I found PIrates Booty last year and we decided to try St. George Island Plantation. It is plenty big enough for our family right now...but the big plus is going to the beach down your private walkway and not being 2 or 3 people deep. It was like having the beach to ourselves. We are in love with this area and we have reserved Pirates Booty as soon as we returned last week for next year. If we had a question or a problem, the management was a text away. I think anyone would like this place.
We just returned from a week at The Boardwalk. It was our first time visiting St George Island. I hate to let the secret out....but this place is AMAZING!! We loved the fun decor of The Boardwalk. Decorated very nice. Unit was very clean. We have 4 kids so there was a great amount of space for 6 of us. Very helpful to have 3 full bathrooms. We have previously stayed in condos on the upper coast and thoroughly enjoyed The Boardwalk and the very quick walk to the beach and back to the house. At condos it was always a time consuming production to load up coolers, beach toys etc to go the beach-at The Boardwalk we could just run back whenever we needed (helpful for cocktail refills!!) :-). And finally the location on SGI was perfect! We didn't drive our van the entire week! Everything was within walking distance and we enjoyed our nightly walks to dinner exploring the island. There are also two ice cream shops right across the way and an Italian ice a quick walk away. SGI was the perfect way to experience "island life" right here in the states! It is a relaxed atmosphere with very little commercialization. Beautiful starry nights can be seen since there are no high rises. We spent the days playing in the ocean, watching dolphins (my favorite!) and at night had fun seeing the crabs run the beach. Thank you SGI and The Boardwalk for the incredible week....already looking forward to returning!!
