Great week on St George Island

  • 5 of 5

Been to St George several times. Must say this was the best. Blue Crab was the perfect place to stay. Tish is the best. Was very helpful, even when I locked our selves out. Will be going back here.

Beautiful and Relaxing!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful stay on St. George Island at the Blue Crab! We cannot wait to go back! We loved the location and the house had everything to make our stay perfect. We bought fish from the local seafood trucks and cooked a couple nights. We also went to a few restaurants on the island and Paddy's was our favorite. We saw a great band there one night and went there twice for oysters.

The beach was not too crowded and we had excellent weather. This was our second trip to SGI and we love the laid back vibe and all the locals are so friendly.

Tish was such a gracious hostess! She emailed us when the house was ready (earlier than check in) and she also mailed us my daughter's doggie she left at the house. Saved me from lots of tears and running to the toy store!!!:)

Thanks for everything...looking forward to returning to SGI and the Blue Crab!

A much-needed vacation on a beautiful beach

  • 5 of 5

First off, the property owner Tish is one of the most helpful and efficient person I have worked with. She is quick to respond and answers any questions you have promptly. And she'll give recommendations on places to eat and things to see!

I took my family of 4 plus son-in-law and friend (6 total) to St. George Island. I had been to Pensacola, Pensacola Beach, Panama City, and Destin, but St. George Island was my favorite. It's more laid back than those mentioned, the beaches were wide open and the house was so close to the beach that it was never a problem for someone to run back to the house to grab something or take a break. And no long walk with cooler, chairs, etc.

The Blue Crab house was clean and comfortable. The Master bedroom faced the Gulf and has it's own patio door that I walked out on every morning. The kitchen was big enough to handle 3-5 of us cooking a meal together and it was stocked with all the utensils, pots and pans, and plates that we needed. The upper deck off the main floor (living room and kitchen) offered a great view of the beach. We ended our day out there watching dolphins jump and the occasional rain storm blow through.

Our visit was considered off-season so store owners were more apt to work with you on some of the prices or offer specials. We rented a golf cart for the week and never used any of our cars! The 4 guys took a 5 hour fishing trip in the bay with Captain Krista with Island Charters. She was awesome! And we caught a ton of trout, red fish, and a couple of sharks.

We loved our time here so much that I contacted Tish and asked if we could extend our visit and rent the Blue Crab for an extra day. We were in luck as the new renters were not checking in for a few days.

Thanks Tish! We had a blast.

Great house and location!!

  • 5 of 5

We've been going to SGI for 16+ years, this was a great location and Tish was a fantastic host! The house was just perfect. Sitting out on the main deck with the awesome breeze and incredible view was our favorite part! Would definitely rent again!!

The property met our needs. Perfect for 2 adults and 4 "adult" kids.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to St. George Island. The property was 100 steps to the beach, great location, walking distance to everything. Had everything we needed for cooking / grilling at home. Would be awesome if there were 12 towels instead of only 6 for 6 adults as this made laundry a daily have to. Everything worked (lights, appliances, AC, TVs, etc). The check in / check out process was hassle-free. We had no problems all week. Looking forward to coming again.

Nearest Golf
15 Miles
St James Bay
Car: recommended

SGI is so unique because of its unspoiled beauty - be sure to visit the state park (great for hunting sand dollars)!

Low density means no overcrowded beaches.

Appalachicola is 15 minutes away - historic homes, great restaurants and fun beach shopping
