This house is absolutely perfect.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been coming to the island for 12 years and this by far our favorite place to stay. We have stayed in other houses and this has to be the best house on the island. It does more than live up to its' name..this place is Heaven. Highly recommended.

Great location, execellent for families!

  • 5 of 5

We have been enjoying Almost Heaven for several years now! It's a great place to gather with family - enjoy the private pool or just a short walk to the beach. It has a great outdoor space with bar and TV - which the kids enjoy! Great customer service from the owners and highly recommend!

Almost Heaven was true to its name!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a great week at this wonderfully comfortable home. There was plenty of room with 4 bedrooms, 4 baths and a wrap around deck that included comfortable seating. The beach access is very close, and when you want to be at the pool, it's in the back of the house with plenty of privacy. Although we never got around to using it the tikki bar set up was great and included its own tv. Don't hesitate to book this place for your next trip to St. George Island. You won't regret it!

Almost Heaven...WHAT...This is Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a fabulous week! Almost Heaven is a great home away from home with a short walk to beach access. This was a girls beach weekend and the house has 4 bedrooms (a TV in each room) with a bathroom for each, a wonderful pool, fabulous screened in deck that goes across the front & a sunning deck on the side of the house. Hope to make it back down real soon!

Perfect for larger groups!

  • 5 of 5

This place is just what you need for a great stay on the island! The floor layout is excellent, single floor with a community space in the middle and private rooms on the sides - perfect for multiple families or in our case teenagers who wanted to pretend they were there on their own!

Kitchen has everything you need for your stay (just provide the food). Many nights we opted to stay in and enjoy the Tiki bar (with TV and fridge) while kids enjoyed the pool just in sight of the adults. Excellent place to relax into the evening - house also has a bunch of party games that were loads of fun for adults and teenagers staying with us.

House is very close to the beach (1 block) and the section of beach is far enough from "the main area" that you'll feel like you own the area. Most of the restaurants are ~5 mins golf cart ride away - for nights we felt like going out - but you seriously will debate staying in as this feels very much like a home away from home! Can't wait to go back!

Owner's Response: How nice of you to take the time to write a review of Almost Heaven. The Tiki bar has become a favorite place for families to gather and still be able to watch after the l kids while in the pool. Its also nice to hear that the games made for some fun nights for you and your family. The golf carts sure make it easy to scoot around the island and best of all when we rent them for about half the price as the local retail shops . Come back soon, Avery
