About The Owner

Our family has vacationed on St. George Island for thirty years. In 2004, we decided to buy a place of our own and have enjoyed renovating it into the lovely beach cottage it now is. A Place In the Sun has been our home away from home. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2004

A Place In The Sun - So Much Fun!

  • 5 of 5
A Place In The Sun was everything promised and more. The unit has very nicely furnished and comfortable. The pool was clean and well maintained and very refreshing after time at the beach. The beach is amazing, clean, and very accessible from the unit. St. George Island is indeed a very special place and the perfect place for our family to have a first "beach vacation" with young children. A Place In the Sun is nicely situated on the island. Easy to access ice cream, playground, and Eddy Teaches from the unit!

Beach retreat

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay. Unit had everything we needed; however the ice maker was not working but no big deal. Comfortable beds and clean. We had nice people in the other units so that was a plus. If you must rely on wireless internet, you may have a problem. We were unable to keep a connection and that was the same with others on the property. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely return. The pool is a nice plus but it was too cool to get in. Owner is great to work with. If you stay, you will enjoy. The beach is beautiful too!

Peaceful Island setting

  • 4 of 5
Our second year on SGI. We found "A Place in the Sun" to be as portrayed in the listing. The interior is fresh, clean and beautifully decorated. Comfortable beds! Kitchen is well equipped and pleasant for the cook. Mirror above the sink is a nice touch, allows views of the gulf while working! Rent is favorably comparable to other rentals on the island.
The variety of restaurants on the island is adequate for most tastes. We enjoyed BJ's pizza place for the first time. Fresh seafood is always nearby, either in restaurants or to prepare "at home".
The island is great for walkers or bikers, level and with little traffic worries. The gulf beach always calls to us, and is dog friendly.
In the "low" season, the island is very quiet and (usually) peaceful. Unfortunately our desired peace and quiet was disrupted by exterior work on the house, with very loud hammering, circular saws and air compressors for three full days. Also, it appears there is little or no sound deadening between the floors, as our upstairs neighbors were very extremely noisy at all hours of the day and night.
I don't feel these issues were the responsibility of the owner, as he told us to expect the workmen and he cannot ensure the courtesy of other occupants. Owners communications were cordial and informative.
We will likely return to SGI in the future, and would enjoy staying at "A Place in the Sun" again!

Owner's Response: We are very sorry for the inconvenence you experienced while staying at our unit due to noisy renters and construction. That is normally, not the case. We are only 1.5 hours from Florida State University and I believe the week you stayed at our unit, was the week of FSU's spring break. You may very well have had some wild and crazy spring breakers staying above you. :) Go Seminloes!!
I assure you, normally A PLACE IN THE SUN is very quiet and peaceful. In the six years that we have owned our unit, we have never had an issue like you experienced. I am happy to read that you would stay at our place again. I think you would be very happy with all the outside revovations, painting, gardening and updating we have done on the entire building. I am just sorry it was going on during your visit.
Thanks for your comment and please come back again. It you do, we will give you a 10% savings on your rent.
Best wishes,
Loretta and Nazih Haddad

CAN'T SAY ENOUGH!!!!

CAN'T SAY ENOUGH!!!!
  • 5 of 5
I have been waiting a month to write my review, I kept getting error messages with the link I was using. My family (myself, husband and 8yr old) arrived to this beautiful island on a Saturday afternoon, it was our first beach vacation in 5 years and our first ever stay on SGI and we could not have been happier! It was everything and more than we had thought and been told!! When we arrived at the house it looked very nice and cozy, upon entering we were just in awe. A Place in the Sun was everything described and more than the pictures could show! The place was immaculate! It was so clean and fresh, everything in place, the decor was just wonderful! My husband is more into the decor than me and he was in love with the place! The house was spacious enough for us, but no wasted space. The beds were SO comfortable!!! We slept very well all 3 nights!
We visited every shop and store on the island, had THE BEST and most fresh oysters ever from the market! Blue Parrot was great for lunch! I wish we had eaten at more places, but only The Blue Parrot and just over the bridge, toward Appalachacola was The Red Pirate.... WONDERFUL food and service!!
We have definitely found our vacation place and would recommend A Place in the Sun to any and everyone! The owners were spot on with everything, the description, quick contact, very imformative of the property, surroundings, the weather, everything! The pricing was perfect for our budget.
We were 150% SATISFIED with everything about this place and our vacation!
