Great house, great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beach house for our wedding weekend. The owners were very quick to respond to any types of questions we had. They made everything flow so smoothly, from being able to get in the house to the day we checked out. I would definitely recommend renting this property for your trip to St. George Island!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. The house is right on the beach with an easy walk via boardwalk to the beach. The layout was good for us (master and kids [twin bed room] on bottom level, middle level kitchen and family living area, top level another private bedroom. Full baths with each bathroom and a half bath on the middle level. It is kind of funky since the only door to the beach is from the master bedroom, it was ok for us but most of the other units in this area have outside stairs so you could head to the beach without going through the bedroom and that would be really nice. Also if the outdoor shower had been a little more private it would have been nice, but it was easy clean up with the shower and hose. The location was great with the lighthouse and playground right next door, we could walk almost everywhere we wanted so only moved our vehicle once when we went off the island to a restaurant on the mainland. Donut shop, restaurants, ice cream shops, and gift shops all easy walk. We found the management (Jolly Rogers) very easy to reach and responsive.

Great location, but in need of TLC

  • 2 of 5

The condo is located in an ideal location. It is right next to the public park and to the lighthouse. You are within walking distance to the shops, ice cream, stores, etc. The view of the beach is also beautiful and exactly as pictured.

However, this is a very old condo, and has not been renovated in a long time. The dishwasher was not working properly. The soap dispenser would not pop open, but the dishwasher would complete it's cycle but the dishes were still dirty. All the dishes in the cabinet had been put away dirty from the previous tenants/housekeepers. The air conditioning vent about the master bedroom sink leaks on top of your head if you're standing at the sink. There were roaches every night in the house. These are immediate issues that need to be addressed and fixed.

I personally think this house lacked a lot of things that just make your stay more pleasurable. There are no bathroom rugs or mats. You have to put a towel on the floor, and you're only given two towels per bathroom, so there is a shortage of towels. You cannot access the beach from the main level, so if you want to grill, you have to go downstairs and exit though the master bedroom. There are no outside tables and not enough outside chairs. There are no large pots and pans. The linens for the fold out couch were waded up in the bottom of a cabinet and obviously dirty.

I do want to add the process of renting this unit was easy and the owners/management helpful and easy to work with. Since we stayed over the memorial day weekend, I did not feel reporting any of these issues were an immediate need, other than the air conditioning, which I reported. Overall, we enjoyed our vacation, but I would never choose to rent this unit again.
