lovely home

  • 5 of 5

Property is lovely------home is extremely well-maintained with recently updated baths. Trees on property offer privacy, breezes, and bird perches for morning song!!!! Windows frame incredible views of water, white sand, and sunrises.

Cannot thank enough Nicole, who made our stay perfect in every way!!!

The Ultimate Relaxing Beach Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This home has it all...convenience to traditional beach activities on St George Island, great shopping and dining in Appalachacola, and water sports and wildlife around the house. Hiking in the state park across the street, swimming in the surf on St George, kayaking around the bay...there wasn't one bit of it we didn't enjoy. We tried some of everything on our first trip, and headed home relaxed and restored. The home is wonderfully furnished and Nikola is responsive to any questions or needs. Our family will definitely stay here again and look forward to exploring the area further. Thanks for a great vacation!

Great House for a get together.

  • 4 of 5

We met my sister & brother-in-law along with their son and his family. Everyone loved the house, location and all the things the house offered to make you feel at home. One recommendation - may be time to upgrade the beds. Everyone remarked beds were not very comfortable. Would recommend the property to friends.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your stay! I'm so glad you had a wonderful time. I took your comment about our beds to heart. It's so difficult to have the perfect bed for everyone as some guests prefer softer beds and other guests prefer firmer beds. So, we just purchased new Sleep Number beds (March 2017) for our king bed and both of our twin beds and we replaced our queen bed with a regular mattress for our guests who want a traditional bed! My goal is for each and every guest to have the best possible experience!

Spacious! Clean! Great location! Beach? Yes! Outdoor dining? Yes! Nature? YES!

  • 5 of 5

We were two adult couples on a mini vacation. We had more than enough room to do what we wanted! The washer and dryer are a bonus! Great location that feels like you are away from it all yet only a bike ride away from town. The beach felt secluded and private and absolutely beauitful...natural! You feel like a local and not a tourist.

If you are looking to relax and enjoy nature. I highly recommend staying here. The owner we worked with (Nikola) was awesome! Went out of her way to make sure we had what we needed. We will definitely be going back!
