  • Great home for our family vacation

    "Our family have been coming to SGI for the past 3 years and staying in different places. The Palms Retreat, with its four bedrooms was perfect for our family of 8. I love the view from the decks and the closeness of the beach. Owners were very helpful and accessible before, during, and after our trip. We felt like we got a great deal since were were renting through agencies before. We'll consider The Palms again, and will definitely rent from properties managed by owners."

  • Great House!

    "We loved the house! The outside looked a little old, but the inside was updated and perfect for our needs. We loved the 3 level layout. The only downside would be the little trek to the beach. We liked that we have our own path, but it does take 4 or 5 minutes to get there. Which doesn't seem bad, but when you have all of your beach gear it seems much longer. We would definitely rent this home again though. It was just enough space for our 3 families."

  • Best Vacation Ever

    "We stayed at Smiley's Beach Getaway this past August. It is our 3rd visit and we couldn't recommend it more. It is extremely clean, in a very nice and private location, and very well equipped. We stayed with our two teenage sons along with another family of 5. All of us had plenty of room and plenty of privacy when anyone wanted to be off on their own. The pool and hot tub are a great break from the beach if you want to just hang out at the house. The beach is spectacular and literally across the street. Very private and few people, and clean. Even in the busy season you'd only have a handful of people around. I have stayed in many VRBO properties all over the US. I would, and have, come back to Smiley's any time!"

  • Gulfside sun rises and sun sets

    "I began talking to the owners as they were completing arrangements to buy Gulf Side Oaks last year. This beach front property had tremendous potential and the owners had done a tremendous job with a similar property on St. George Island. I grew up in Florida many years ago and wanted to return with my wife for two months that ranged from Jan 20-March 18, 2017. I enjoyed our time on the island staying at Gulf Side Oaks so much that I have already committed to a 6 week stay next year. The house is conveniently arranged with two bedrooms and a bath on the east and west side of the house. The kitchen and living room are part of a large room with great views of the gulf. The bedrooms were upgraded with all new beds, 3 king-size and a queen, bedding and TV's. The difficult part was try to choose a bed because they all were extremely comfortable. The large room was enjoyable and worked well when we had family members visit. The kitchen is equipped with real plates, a great set of knives and every kind of kitchen ware that we could possibly need. There is a shower down stairs that has hot and cold water and is very handy when coming back from the beach. There were a few minor problems and the management team responded quickly to correct a leaky faucet and faulty TV cable. The owners go out of their way to provide a positive experience and I have been impressed with their willingness to include the customer in feeling like they are important with future plans for Gulf Side Oaks. There are several projects planned during the coming year that will add convenience, comfort and quality to this property. The Plantation is located on the west side of St. George Island and is in a gated community. There is a feeling of safety and freedom to enjoy biking and walking trails. Gulf Side Oaks is conveniently located and the sound of the waves provide a relaxing experience as well as dramatic vistas of the night sky, sun rises and sun sets. I only wish it was time to return again next year. Louis"
