About David Crenshaw

Welcome to SEAVIEW! We have been coming to St.George Island since 1992 when our kids were young. The initial appeal to St. George Island was the vast, beautiful white sand beaches with no crowds and the overall laid back atmosphere. And you know what? St. George is still like that! A 'crowded' day at the beach is seeing 20 people in either direction.... for miles! Additionally, St George is a safe place...from the Gulf waters being gentler than the Atlantic to the fact that most people on SGI do not lock their car when they go out...because they do not need to.

For 10 years, we rented homes at SGI and then decided to purchase. Seaview is our 3rd home and we purchased it in the fall of 2004 when the home was 1 yr old.

We love SEAVIEW and try our best to be sure it is always in excellent condition. We have had, and continue to have, fun decorating SEAVIEW and selecting colors and artwork that make SEAVIEW a cheerful and relaxing place to visit.

Suzy and I are retired and live in Decatur,Ga (a small town 6 miles east of downtown Atlanta) in a historic neighborhood in a home we designed and built in 2007. We do get to SEAVIEW several times a year as we find it our peaceful and relaxing retreat.

Our three kids are now grown and live all over the world. We try to make SEAVIEW our gathering point for those occasions when we can all be together at the same time.

We welcome you to make SEAVIEW your place to make memories with your family.

David and Suzy

David Crenshaw purchased this house in 2004

Why David Crenshaw chose St George Island

We bought our home at St George Island after looking at several other areas. St George offers the best combination of very low population density (no high rises), one of the top 5 beaches in the US, one of the top fishing spots in the US, and a nice variety of local stores that offer all we need when we visit. Additionlly, it a nature lovers area with lots of estuary areas as well as a 7 mile long state park that is nationally known. It is common to see egrets right on the beach and SGI is known for its turtle nesting areas.

What makes this house unique

When we go to SEAVIEW, we enjoy the vast beautiful beach and our private pool and hot tub. Words can not describe the beauty of the nightime skies from the hot tub.....SGI does not have any street lights so the skies are more visable. And the sunrises and sunsets are simply unbelievable! We also like to take walks on the beach or in the estuary which is one block back of our home. And then we like to bicycle on the 10 mile long bike path in front of our home that is mostly flat and easy to bike! And of course, we often do nothing at all but relax on the deck in our chairs! We also like the quality and variety of the numerous restaurants on St. George as well as those in close by historic Apalachicola.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Despite a mix of rainy and sunny days, our two families has a wonderful time at Seaview. Our kids spend hours in the pool..rain or shine..and we made it to the beach more than a handful of times.The State Park was a must and our favorite place to eat was the Blue Patriot--a great view of the shoreline when you eat outside..

The house was wonderful--great spaces and great amenities...i think we had it all! We especially appreciated the Pak N Play and booster seat for our 2 year nice not to have to bring those things along during travel.

Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Hidden gem!

  • 5 of 5

Two families of four had a wonderful time at Seaview! From entering a very clean and inviting house to sadly leaving the last day we couldn't have had a better time.

Seaview is set up for a perfect family vacation. A short walk across the street to the beach to play all day, and back to the house to swim, soak in the hot tub, make s'mores and relax on the porch at night. We brought groceries and bought some there at the IGA and Piggly Wiggly about 15 min. away in Apalachicola. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to make and eat our meals. We ordered pizza a couple nights and highly recommend BJ's!

You won't find a crazy spring break scene at St. George Island-- it is not a traditional spring break location- it's a quiet, quaint, scenic island with lots of uncrowded beach and shells to explore. We rented a boat one night for a pirate/sunset cruise and drove about 45 min. to go horseback riding at Cape San Blas. Other than that, we were on the island, soaking up the sun and playing at the beach.

We were at Seaview from March 28-April 4. Our weather was perfect- in the 70s with a light breeze. We got plenty of sun without sweating, yet it was warm enough to swim as well.

We had a problem with the oven one night and had to call the owner, David. We immediately were given some suggestions, which ended up working, but before that worked there was no hesitation in an offer to get a repairman out the next day.

Everyone appreciated the strong wi-fi in the house. We did not need the fireplace, but that would have been fun if we needed it.

The only thing I would recommend is to bring some extra towels and kitchen dishtowels. 6 sets of towels and washcloths were set out as well as 1 dish cloth and 2 dishtowels. We made it work, but had we known we would have brought an extra set from home. Everything else we needed was there- dishwasher soap, liquid dish soap, paper towels, toilet paper, bed linens, extra blankets, pillows, etc.

Overall, we would definitely go back and hope to next year!

Owner's Response: Amy and family...thanks for your kind comments! We do try our best to provide a good vacation experience for our guest families. As far as the dish towels are concerned, other homes only provide one and so we have been providing two...but maybe we need to re-think that and provide three!

Great option for large group!

We spent Thanksgiving at this lovely property and the kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed to make our holiday meal. From baking dishes to pots/pans to mixing bowls to good knives - everything was there! And unlike many places (of the same size) we've rented, there was a ton of room for our pantry items which is a really a plus when you have three families bringing stuff.

There was plenty of space for our family of 7 adults and one toddler. It was chilly for part of our stay so having the automatic fireplace was extremely appreciated. We were able to heat just the living space quickly without wasting energy bumping up the heat for the whole house.

We made s'mores around the fire pit which was fun for kids of all ages. The views and natural light were stunning and we were surprised how quiet is was being on the main road. We had an age range from 3 to 77 and a great time was enjoyed by all!

Owner's Response: Tiffany, Chet and family...thanks for your comments! Since Suzy is a kitchen designer we do try to keep the kitchen well equipped. And, I am so happy you liked the fireplace that we just put in.....for an artificial fireplace it is the best we have seen. David and Suzy

Seaview is simply amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at Seaview. (And I hope there will be many more!!) Frankly, we will never look for another place to vacation! The house is beautiful, with amazing views from the decks as well as an incredible crows nest on top with a hammock. It's close to the beach, yet you still have plenty of privacy. And to top it off you have a beautiful swimming pool all to yourself. It's truly like staying at your own private resort. We miss it already!

Perfect for our family!

Seaview was the perfect size for our family of four children, spouses and 2 grandchildren. Everything was organized and very clean. The children loved the hammock on the upper deck! The owners were very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend Seaview!!!

Owner's Response: Jan and Gordon..thanks for saying I am friendly and helpful... as I certainly try to be! My recent experience with a landlord in Italy reminded me of the importance of being available and working out problems should they arise. david

One of our best vacations ever!!

  • 5 of 5

After close to 19 years of renting various cottages and homes in many locations internationally, we would definitely say that Seaview is one the best we've ever been to. Fully equipped with everything you need and a very comfortable home - as well as only a short walk from a stunningly beautiful beach. As stated in the description, St. George Island is a gem of a place, not overcrowded but populated enough to support local amenities, shops, seafood trucks, etc. The home is well maintained and the owners make sure all instructions (to absolutely everything from working the tvs to garbage pick up) are clear and easy to follow. Beds are comfortable, dishware, cutlery and cooking utensils plentiful. We would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a relaxing, wonderful, carefree vacation !

Seaview Is Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you all so much for sharing your home with us! Our stay was so enjoyable - we didn't want to leave when our week was over. Your home is absolutely beautiful, extremely accommodating and comfortable - complete with everything we could ever need and/or want. We cooked breakfast & dinners, ate out (The Owl Cafe in Apalachicola is a must), relaxed, kayaked in the bay, horse back riding on the beach, explored the State Park, read books, and relaxed some more. After soaking in the sun all day on the beach, the outdoor shower was so nice. We also enjoyed the pool in the evenings. It was so great to have beach chairs, umbrellas, beach toys, etc., provided for us. Your closet "beach stash" was wonderful!!

We will definitely tell our friends about your home and we hope to return here next year. Thank you Crenshaw's for being a part of our family vacation!!

Owner's Response: Leah and Scott...thanks for your kind words! Yes we do have a lot of stuff in our "closet beach stash" ...sometimes too much! With most folks coming from very long distances, we think the last thing they want to deal with is bringing chairs and umbrellas and sand toys! Suzy and David
