About Resort Vacation Properties of St. George Island - Key West Cottage

As a family we fell in love with St. George Island many years ago and made it a life dream to own a small property close to the water. The dream has been realized and we would love to share our little slice of heaven with anyone that we can.

Family, Beach & Pool - Best of all combinations!

  • 4 of 5

Just enjoyed Labor Day Weekend with my 2 kids, their spouses and my 7 grandkids (5 adults, 4 teens, 3 under 3) and had a wonderful time! The location was convenient - across the street from the beach and the pool was a wonderful addition for the little ones when we tired of the sand. House was just fine - older single story w. over carport deck so teens could enjoy their own space with little adult interference when they weren't riding bikes or enjoying the beach. House generally clean but showing wear; Kitchen well equipped but you may have to look through all cupboards. Suggest you wipe down counters & table before using (hard to avoid the beach dust that blows in & collects on surfaces). Bring extra rolls of paper towels & TP (only 1 small roll of towels & 1 roll TP in each bath) & cooler of ice (no ice maker & fridge is definitely small and worn, but kept food cold). There's also an enclosed outdoor shower and hose behind the carport that we didn't find right away, but it is great for rinsing sand off feet & shoes or to wash off the beach grit before jumping in the pool or coming inside. Our family enjoyed this get-away so much we've decided to make it an annual event.

Great house in a fabulous location!

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation here was great and this house made the difference! It was wonderful for our three kids to be able to play as if they were home with the pool and screened in porch. We loved being walking distance from the beach, and the owners could not have been more friendly and accommodating. Highly recommend this spot to a family looking for a 'home away from home' atmosphere in a beautiful location.

Disappointed

  • 2 of 5

This was out tenth year on SGI for vacation. We have stayed in many homes depending on the size of our group. This year was just me, my husband and out 2 teenage boys. We were excited about your home, having picked it while vacationing the previous year. When we checked in at the rental office about 4:15, we were told the house had been cleaned but had not been checked by the ambassador yet. The polite young man took my number, told us we could head for the house and he would call, telling us we could enter. We stopped at a store, bought some groceries and went on to the house. After waiting a while, my son used the code and we unloaded. We never received a call. Upon entering, the house appeared clean but the soles of our feet were black within minutes. We discovered the keyless entry system was not working a short time later but had batteries with us and used those as we went to visit the beach. The next morning the entry system was again not working and I called the rental office who suggested we go on to the beach while she put in a work order. I replied that was unacceptable as we would have no way of entering the house if needed. She put in an immediate order and the issue was resolved that afternoon by removing the unit and giving us keys. We were disappointed by the lack of furniture on the screened in porch, the living room TV remote did not work (even with new batteries,) and the overgrown dog run that was completely unusable. The slats on the bunk beds fell out easily. I was confused by the washer and dryer being on a pallet until we received rain and saw how the carport and utility room flooded. Needless to say, all items, including our charcoal were soaked. Again, we have stayed in many houses, some very expensive, some not so expensive, and some in the middle. Overall, your house was a disappointment to us. The pool was nice but needed cleaning to remove sand and debris from the bottom that we could not remove with the skimmer. The kitchen was adequate although it was the only house we have ever had with no ice maker. All dishes had to be washed before using as they were not clean. The layout of the house was great, and the roof did not leak during the rain. The ceiling fans were great to have and stayed on constantly. We liked the location of the house. I did send a report in after the flooding, so the rental company is aware of this issue. It would have been nice to know so we could have kept our belongings from getting wet and dirty.

Key West Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property for any family to spend a weekend or week. It has a relaxing pool if your to tired to walk across the street to the beach and a screened in porch so you can sit outside and just enjoy the amazing weather. The owners are extremely accommodating and go out of their way to ensure that you have the best time on your vacation. I'm really looking forward to visiting again.

Wonderful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation. The house was pretty clean, though a deep cleaning is probably needed. There was a little bit of grime in the corners of the floors. The pool was a nice feature to have, but the beach was close enough that we didn't use it much. We sat on the screened-in porch a ton! It was wonderful. The house was exactly what we were looking for and the owner was very prompt in answering our questions and helping when needed.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the response, as for the cleaning after a full summer of back to back renters a little sand builds up in the corners. I have taken it off as a pet friendly home and that should also help with the cleaning. I do hope you visit us again. Karrie

Lovely Cottage/Gracious Hospitality/Brill Stay

  • 5 of 5

This charming cottage and its lovely owner strikes all the right notes. I'm an adopted islander & have been visiting SGI for decades. This beach abode embodies old school, island charm... has lovely/comfy decor, great views, quite pet friendly and an excellent location. It is an easy walk to both the beach & a park on the bay-side which is great for dog walks & swims. Also convenient for bike trail.

The owner went out of her way to be accommodating of our needs.. even giving a heads-up when the house was available a day earlier which allowed me to celebrate my Dad's birthday in his favourite spot. (Thanks again Karrie) We had a brilliant time and are heading back again this year. Excited to check out the new pool they have installed. I highly recommend both the cottage & the owners if you desire the quintessential island-spirit stay served up with a gracious dose of southern hospitality.
