About Barbie Hartsfield

Purchased this when my daughter found it available for sale - -we love St. George Island and this is the perfect home for a fun comfortable get-away where you can walk to everything and have a wonderful open great room with water views and comfortable large bedrooms. SGI is one of the best benefits of living in Tallahassee. My daughter lives in Chicago with her husband and their golden retriever 'Mason' so the home is pet friendly to accommodate our furry loved ones - - but there is thorough cleaning and pest maintenance to have it safe and comfortable for all.

Barbie Hartsfield purchased this house in 2013

Location was excellent and the space was the perfect size for our group

  • 4 of 5

Overall the stay was very lovely~there were just a few things missing upon arrival such as some light bulbs in the night lights and also batteries for the clock on the wall and the remote controls. I can understand a cleaning service not noticing such little things needing replacement but overall the stay was really nice and we will be booking our next visit to St George Island again here in the future :D

Nice condo!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Bungelow Bay. The two levels of bedrooms (one above the kitchen and one below the kitchen) and kitchen on a separate level worked well for our three couple vacation. We loved the location. It's walking distance to two grocery/liquor stores for items we forgot. It's walking distance to bike rentals and restaurants. There's also a wine store nearby with some baked goods and seasonings. We bought a delicious key lime pie there! And a quick few mins shuffle to the beach access. All the people we met on the island were very nice also.

There's always room for improvement. This condo could benefit immensely from a new fridge. The ice maker only dispenses crushed ice and it went all over the floor every time someone used it when it worked at all. Also the light in the fridge and freezer flashed like a strobe light. One more improvement to consider would be comfortable chairs on the back deck. They have a gap in the back that made me feel like I was going to slip through. If those two things were addressed, it would be an amazing place.

The beds were comfortable and the shower I used was nice, clean, warm, and had good water pressure. Towels were nice looking and clean. Internet was out on the whole island the first night, so be prepared for no wifi or tv if the island looses internet.

I would recommend to friends staying here. We did not have a pet, but if I did, I would feel comfortable with the nicely fenced yard. There are a lot of stairs, so also make sure you are ok with that. I am athletic and in shape, and I was a little sore after the first night of bringing in belongings up the stairs, lol. That's a nice little workout. :) Anyone with hip trouble or knee trouble would not appreciate the stairs. I appreciate the help from Barbie when I contacted her via text. Thanks to the owners for a super fun family vacation at St. George!

Wonderful Home with all you need!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time on our stay in the Bungalow Bay House. It had everything we needed and was in perfect walking distance to the beach and restaurants. Our group had a blast and would definitely go back! Home owner Barbie was wonderful and very responsive. Thank you so much for a great experience in St. George Island!

Next door, pretty much to the Black Marlin and Paddys raw bar, the latter of which I highly recommend. Beach is 5 minute walk, as is SGI market (overpriced) and piggly wiggly express. House was as described and clean. Great views of the bay and partial view of gulf. Would stay at the house again.

Everything you need in a house!

  • 5 of 5

Great house with everything needed! A lot of room. Yes, a lot of stairs, but totally worth the layout for our family. A lot of board games, karaoke machine, movies, great wifi! plenty of dining space and great outdoor seating options. Walking to the beach was a plus! Plenty of restraints within walking distance with one literally next door! Must try the donuts at Webbers but get there early or they will sell out! There is also a Starbucks tucked inside the surf shop around the corner. You won't find scones but they do have coffee! The island is super quiet for anyone wanting a nice getaway! Beach is pet friendly so our dog had as much fun as us! Definitely recommend this house!!!
