About Rick Hunter

We purchased our house in 1994 and raised our 2 boys here. Plenty of family friendly activities and abundant areas for your children to really enjoy the beach and its array of activities. Great night life for adults within a short walking distance!

Right on the water!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here. The unit is on the ground floor, of a four-unit building but it feels very private. Even though it is an older unit, the living area is very open and bright, and the screened in porch and deck going down to the beach were great. We brought our two small dogs and they settled right in and loved walks on the beach. Having only one step here and there was helpful for us in the older generation! However, the shower is in the tub, and that might not work for someone truly disabled as compared to a walk in shower. The kitchen was well equipped and there is a small washer and dryer unit off the kitchen. It was very clean and well maintained.

One note -- AC is window units and heat is space heaters. That could be a problem some times of year for those sensitive to allergens -- I did end up with a sinus headache. The unit is fairly close to the center of the Island, which makes it convenient to run back to check out shops, grab a sandwich or an ice cream. There is only one bath room, but it is large and situated between the two bedrooms. You do need to bring some of your own supplies, dish detergent, soap, clothes detergent, paper towels, and of course beach towels! The owner promptly replied when we were confused with our first effort to book through VRBO.

Clean and Sweet

  • 5 of 5

This is a ground-level unit, but the water is still visible from the kitchen! It has an open design, with a nice-sized bathroom connecting two bedrooms, and a lot of outdoor living space. The owner has built a little raised platform out on the open portion of the deck, and we sat there at a table for morning coffee and sunrise--and sunset, too, though it's best to actually walk the fifty feet to the beach (mostly on a level boardwalk). The kitchen had all the equipment I needed, and the screened porch was only a step down, with a step up to the open deck (I have a back injury). Plenty of towels, but do bring a bit of hand, bath, laundry, and dish soap. The owner responded promptly to any question, and we had a lovely stay.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Spent 5 days here. Great location with no issues. No barking dog issues while we were here. Wifi and cable worked flawlessly. Screen door could use a little maintenance. Cottage is clean and recently renovated. Good local restaurants and bars. There is a little grocery store at the gas station. Groceries high priced. Hit the stores on the mainland. Would stay here again if we visit SGI again.

This unit is NOT HANDICAP ACCESIBLE. It is not wheelchair accessible. It had no handicap features.

  • 3 of 5

The property was clean and convenient not only to the beach but also to shopping and dining. Bathroom was not wheelchair accessible. Toilet had no hand rail for assistance, neither did the shower/tub.

On the other had, beds slept great. Linens were clean & fresh.

Great deck and very clean!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time! The condo was perfect for us. It was right on the beach. It was nice to be able to bring our dog. I had read other reviews about 7 yappy dogs so wasn't sure if that would be a problem. But there was no one there with 7 dogs so maybe they moved. The place was nice with window air conditioner units that kept the place nice and cool. We really enjoyed the deck. And the price was great. Wasn't sure how one bathroom would be but it was a nice size so it wasn't an issue. And we love St George island. Would recommend this place! And the owners were very prompt with responses and they returned my deposit without me having to ask for it.

Loved the close proximity to the beach, made carrying things done easy.

  • 4 of 5

Loved the inside of the condo, bigger than I expected. I did have some difficulty with the lock, as it seemed weathered and stuck, took awhile to get it open.

Loved the living area, very spacious!

We spent a lot of time on the screened in porch with our little dog, but the door screen was torn.. We tried duck tape but it didn't work.

It would have been awesome with the screen door in tact..

The only other thing that occurred was the air conditioner in the main bedroom was stuck on 77...

I will come come back in a heart beat.. Found the best pizza place( bj's), piggly wiggly express has everything you need..

Being on the ground floor a major plus, as you unload everything. large back deck , electric grill which we used and loved it!

Awesome for dogs! Chewie the chihuahua had his first beach trip and loved it.. Just fix the screened in porch door!

Looking forward to our next trip🏖...

I think we were the only people there outside of Tallahassee.. We're drove from Tennessee

Great beach for dogs!

Despite the bacteria scare .. St George was fine..

Final note, there are fisherman on the beach and while we were there a guy caught a 10 ft tiger shark after 5 pm so please please smart when you swim!
