Very nice beach house!

  • 5 of 5

We really loved our stay here. The house was better than expected and very clean. Really enjoyed the view from the back deck and the few steps to the beach. Pool was great! Would recommend this to friends and family.

Another great week on St. George Island

  • 5 of 5

This was our 5th time to stay at Gull Cottage, and it was wonderful once again! Clean, cozy, comfortable, convenient...and I'm out of C-words to describe it. It is everything we want in a house (okay, maybe we want a slightly larger kitchen, but it's at least everything we need). My family can't imagine staying anywhere else, and with the recent exterior updates it was a little more fun & "beachy" than the old gray was. Good, fast communication from the owner each time I had a question. Would not hesitate to stay again!

Great vacation on the beach

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice property. Exactly as described. It seemed very well-maintained and was a really great vacation spot. The pool was very nice. The house is close (but not too close) to the island "center" and we rented bikes for all of our outings on the island. Didn't need to drive the car at all.

Clean, we'll kept. One of the best kept units you will find.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect 4 bedroom house for my family, with a tv in each room. Nice covered porch on the back. Pool is small, but works well since it is not shared. Owners were responsive and accomodating. Only problem we had was having to pay vrbo.com over $125 for nothing, be warned you are not really renting from the owners anymore, as they are now adding a fee for all rentals through their site.

Owner's Response: This is a great home. We have sent multiple complaints to VRBO concerning their "Service Fee" that they started charging to renters. There is nothing that we can do about it.

Best vacation in 25 years!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Gull Cottage with our adult children for a family vacation (total of 7 people) and everyone loved this property! This was our first time staying on St. George Island and also our first time staying in a house as opposed to a condo. We always stay somewhere in the panhandle area but did not know about SGI until I found it on VRBO this year. It was worth it to have our own pool as we would often use this in the afternoon if we got too hot on the beach. It was great to have our own pool (peaceful) and was a perfect temperature. My favorite feature of this house was the large deck with overhang for shade. The walk out to the water is very short and every night the moon is right in front of you, shining down on the water and beach. The house was very clean when we arrived and furniture was well cared for. There was ample room for us when we gathered at the dining table to have a meal or play a family game. The open concept of the living room and comfortable furniture also allowed for plenty of room when we all gathered there. The bedrooms were comfortable and were quiet. Some of our group would stay up late watching TV while others would retire and we did not disturb each other. The AC in this house was probably one of the strongest we've had and it felt cool all week without that clammy feel you get at some units on the beach. The owner was great to work with and replied to emails right away. I had sent him an email on our first full day there to alert him to a loose door handle. The replied to via email with an hour and was also there in person to explain to us what to do. Very nice and friendly! If you are new to SGI, you may want to consider renting or bringing your own bikes for the week. We rented from a place in town and it worked out great! We also rented for the week a stand-up paddle board and double kayak. Since we saw so many dolphins every day, we got a lot of use out of the kayak and we could paddle close to them. We will definitely return to SGI and would highly recommend this house to anyone looking!

This home is on the beach with gorgeous views of the ocean. It is within walking distance to the bike trail and close to all shops, restaurants and the lighthouse park.
