Wonderful home to vacation in!
"Hakuna Matata is a wonderful home-away-from-home place to stay!! So much space, we weren't tripping over each other. Loved the pocket doors to block off a sleeping area so one could wake up and move around without waking others. The beach view can't be beat! Loved watching the dolphins from the porch while enjoying a wonderful breeze! I will be back!"

"We spent a month here and first time on SGI which was very nice and quiet.The cottage has everything you need for a nice visit especially if you cook .Updated recently and beds are comfortable and excellent furnishings.
Nice enclosed deck for our dog to enjoy out in the sun and she loved the beach across the street.
Book it you can't go wrong and owners are very friendly also.If we get to SGI again this is where we will stay.
Great seafood all over had plenty."

"We loved spending a week at Island Dream. Bill and Nancy were wonderful hosts, from the start of our communication about our vacation through our entire stay at their beach house.
This home is perfect for a small family or a couple. We loved the ability to bring our dog, and this rental is ideal for it. We found Island Dream to be well stocked with any kitchen implement you could desire - yes, even a waffle maker and a crock pot! We made extensive use of the open, functional kitchen and spent many hours enjoying the beachfront screened porch. To our surprise, we found a nice large charcoal grill on wheels under the house in addition to the camp-style permanent grill adjacent to the boardwalk.
The private wooden boardwalk to the beach was heaven-sent after a long afternoon baking on the sand of the pristine St. George beach. A small shared sand path ran alongside this home, but we never experienced any crowding on the beach. Many of the necessary beach implements (sand chairs, small six-pack sized cooler, umbrella with anchor, beach towels, fishing rod holders) were thoughtfully provided for guest use.
We found the master bed extremely comfortable and this home was well stocked with extra bed linens and plenty of towels. A large stained glass window in the master bedroom was a beautiful touch that brought in the morning light, and could be opened to the living room if desired. The living room furniture looks recently updated and is comfortable as well. We enjoyed the large bookshelf and its many novels!
The location of Island Dream is ideal - far enough away from the lighthouse and town square to feel secluded, but a moment's drive from all the conveniences. We enjoyed oysters several times at Up the Creek in Apalachicola and visited our old favorite Papa Joe's in its new location.
I highly recommend this vacation home and its gracious owners - thanks again for having us as your guests!"
