About Pat Herold and Kerry Griffin

I've own this great beach house since the 70's. My kids grew up spending great times here, with many family memories being made. While my kids have grown into adults with families of their own, we still make time to make memories at the beach each year. The house has been a great get away for me, my friends and family. When not at the house, I make it available to others to enjoy and offer an affordable option on SGI. We've listed on VRBO since 2008, and have many guest that return. We hope to add you to list of guests that have visited and come back on a regular basis.

Pat Herold and Kerry Griffin purchased this house in 1977

Why Pat Herold and Kerry Griffin chose Florida

Me and family use to visit the island for weekend get always back when there was hardly anything on the island. We had the opportunity to purchase this place in 1977 and it has been one of the best purchases we've ever made. We could not have asked for anything better to be able to take our kids and spend lots of quality time together. A lot has changed on the island, but one thing has not and that’s the laid back casual atmosphere that inherent to a relaxing place to get away.

What makes this house unique

Simple and affordable, in a great location that's quiet with awesome access to the beach.

Cozy beach house, exactly as described

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as described. There were several extras like board games, flip flops, beach towels and beach toys. The coffee left for us was great! And we enjoyed the sea salt soap as well! You can use the outside shower when you return from the beach which was nice. We had a small problem when we arrived but the owners were quick to fix it and make it right.

Just Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We escaped to the Island for a much needed rest and this place was exactly what we needed!

The beach house was neat, clean, well appointed and cute as a button. Really all we needed to do was hit the grocery before heading over the bridge and have change of clothes, swimsuit and toiletries.

Mid August is extra special down on the Island for star-gazing (which is perfect out on the front balcony/deck) plus we were there for the eclipse. As always, the beach and wildlife never disappoint :-)

Great communication with owners as well!

Nice owner and great location

  • 5 of 5

Unlike most of other vacation properties we rent before, this house appears to be also a home of the owner. There are personal photos, albums, and books. All these add characters and make us feel like we live in a friend's house. The owner, Kerry, is indeed very friendly. She has been well communicated. The house is well stocked. I particularly appreciate the new bag of local coffee the owner gave. I originally brought my own coffee bean and grinder. But I enjoy the owner's coffee so much, I end up just drink her coffee, and it is exactly one week's supply! The house is also well located, just across the street to the beach. This is the first time we visit St. George Island. We enjoyed the old Florida charm and the island's laid back atmosphere. We surely will be back!

Across the street from the beach, great owner

  • 5 of 5

The property was a cute little beach cottage with a great deck, located right across the street from the beach. Not overly fancy, but comfortable and cute. Little extras like flip-flops, beach towels, beach toys, coffee and soap were happy surprises. The owner was absolutely amazing! She was available via text the entire time. We had a small issue with the fridge, and she went above and beyond to make sure it was fixed immediately. Would definitely stay again, and recommend to others.

Great intro to SGI

  • 4 of 5

Quaint, fun, well located house a few yards from the beach--great location and feel. Seemed like we were borrowing it from a family member, the memories (and leave-behinds) were evident from other guests, and we left some things for the next ones, too (some glasses). Well stocked, great for a couple as we were or small family. Very comfortable mattress in back bedroom, I miss it!!

We really enjoyed our first visit to SGI, and hope to return in a few years.
