About the property

3 bedrooms, 3 full baths, sleeps 6 - 8 (2 king, 1 queen, 1 queen sofa-bed)

Advance to Boardwalk! Two spacious and luxurious bedrooms, one spacious loft (adults can stand in the loft), three bathrooms (one with Jacuzzi), directly on the beach with boardwalk through the grass, multiple flat Screen TVs, VCR's, and DVD' s, free wireless high speed internet access, plenty of rockers on the beach-overlooking decks. Hot and cold outdoor shower.

Great central island location, just steps to island playground, shops, and restaurants. There is no need to take a chance anywhere else!

St. George Island has no highrises and is a family friendly, relaxing break in the Gulf of Mexico. It is central to Florida's largest eco-tourism area. Come try it out! Once people discover the area they always come back.

St George Island!: St. George Island was ranked the #2 family beach. (We of course think it is #1.) Come enjoy the uncrowded family-friendly beaches where even the family dog is welcome!

About Reggie Ratcliff

We are a family of 4 living in the Metro Atlanta area. We're all nature lovers and love traveling and spending time outdoors. In the summer of 2003 we vacationed on SGI and loved it completely and returned a month later to look for a place to call our own and we bought 'Hang Ten' in September.

Hang Ten is so popular with return guests that we had little chance to visit it ourselves. We began looking for another house to balance with Hang Ten and in 2007 we bought a cottage called 'Boardwalk'. With two houses on SGI we are able to go there often and take care of the properties and enjoy sharing them with guests.

Our goal is to make our guests happy.

In 2013 we will start to manage the properties ourselves, with the help of Community Management Services, Inc. (CMSI). We are very fortunate to have found CMSI - a very experienced, St. George Island-based company - to handle the housekeeping and maintenance for us. They can provide a more cusotmized service for our houses and their goals include a very welcoming house upon your arrival and no need for service calls.

Reggie Ratcliff purchased this cottage in 2007

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We strongly recommend staying at Boardwalk and will be back again soon! St George island is perfect. The location of Boardwalk is very convenient. Steps to the beach and local attractions/restaurants. The rental was very clean and had everything we needed.

Beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for a short 5 nights, but loved the area so much that we plan on returning next year for a longer period. The location of this cottage is perfect within walking distance of restaurants and shops. It is right on the beach with amazing views. It is roomy and comfortable but could use a little TLC, especially the decks. We had a wonderful time and would definitely stay here again.

Great Beach House

  • 5 of 5

Boardwalk is a great beach house with easy access to the beach, restaurants, and stores. The house is very comfortable and cute. We loved the decorating theme. It has a great view of the ocean from the master bedroom and living area. It was an easy walk to restaurants and stores. We brought our dog who loved the beach. We were close to the lighthouse and park and we often walked our dog there. The owner is so nice to work with and answered any questions we had. We loved the house and St. George Island and hope to rent this same house next year.
