Family and I had an awesome time I would like to say it was relaxing but with 2 boys who love nature ,fishing etc we ran all over the island pretty much non stop for 4 days. Sapelo is so quiet and full of history. This is our second visit at Miss Lucy s and we absolutely love her kindness and hospitality she makes us feel like family. We love the fact that we have a vehicle we can use and dont have to worry about it getting dirty etc. Miss Lucy also helped me plan a surprise Birthday party for my Wife and helped me accomadate some friends who I had come over on the ferry that morning as a surprise to my Wife. She even put the cake together and joined us for the party. We plan on coming back every Summer and always look forward to our visits. A litte advice talk to the locals they are very friendly and learn the History,customs etc of the island very interesting . I always like to take the Ferry back and go into Darien for a few hours its a nice little historic town. CJ s in very popular with good food and has a good reputation. If you are traveling from the South on 95 there s a good buffet off exit 38 Ole times buffet 2 miles east of 95 on right. Make sure to pack lots of food and water for Sapelo no stores but at least you can head back into Darien. All in all a great clean nice place to stay with a awesome host on a beautiful rustic friendly island. A great place for a family vacation
Had a great time. Apartment exactly as described. Lucy & Mike were wonderful. Up to date details from start to finish. Looking forward to returning soon.Would highly recommend this rental.
A once a year fishing trip has now turned into a bi-annual visit to Georgia's best kept secret. Although March weather can be chilly, we were warm and comfortable. The owners; Lucy and Mike, went above and beyond to accommodate us. Use of their Jeep allowed us to explore the island ourselves. If you did know better, you would think you were in another country.
While leaving the island, I made a reservation for our late summer fishing trip. I have no doubt that a late fall fishing trip may be in order.
This was an excellent place to relax and loose track of time. There are lots of interesting things to do on Sapelo! It is certainly more of quiet get-away, but if you like the beach and quiet island life, it is perfect! This rental is small and cozy, yet has the potential to sleep a lot of people. The kitchen is small, yet serves its purpose as a great vacation kitchen with all the things you could need (so you don't have to pack cooking utensils). It's a great place to return to after a long day at the beach. The decor is cute and cheerful. The owner is very friendly and nice. Everything was clean and beds comfortable. I would recommend this to friends and family, but not to anyone with elderly, disabled or large pets (there are 3 flights of steps which would be challenging).
Lucy has a lovely place and is an amazing host. This island is absolutely gorgeous. I would highly recommend staying out at Sapelo at least once in your life and enjoying the tranquility.
We had a wonderful time at My Sapelo Retreat. It was the perfect way to have some time to unwind after the busy holidays. The apartment was filled with everything that we needed. We had four adults and two kids with us and we had plenty of room and plenty for everyone to do each day. The residents of the island were very welcoming to us. One of our favorite things to do was to walk on the beaches totally uninterrupted. It was quite a change from our day to day lives. We enjoyed a tour of the north end of the island, walks on the beaches, a bonfire on the beach, and stargazing at Cabretta as well as playing games in the apartment. It was the perfect way to spend holiday off time with family and friends. We did not want to leave and plan to return very soon.
My Sapelo Retreat is on Sapelo Island which is 4 1/2 mi. from the mainland. On the Island there is only 1 small convenience store and a post office. Several of the things I have commented on are in the historic fishing village of Darien, a frequent overnight before the trip over to Sapelo. For instance, there is a great little salon and spa, Eternity Salon and Spa, in Darien. The restaurants I've commented on are in Darien and there is a fine gourmet wine and cheese store and wine bar there, Waterfront Wine and Gourmet on the waterfront on Broad Street. Some types of activities require hiring a guide, deep sea fishing, kayaking, scuba diving but I can connect you with the folks who do those things. Just ask! I'll be glad to answer your questions.
