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.

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

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.

Owner's Response: Hi, Lauren: Very nice of you to send this along, and we appreciate it very much. We also love the location close to town and directly on the beach! We truly work to make sure the house is in great shape and that our guests have everything they need and have a memorable stay. Hope to see you again next year, and thanks again.

boardwalk

  • 3 of 5

Really loved the location to the beach. The kitchen was not clean. The dishes,pots,etc . looked like they were not washed! The towel quality compared to cheaphotel quality. furniture in main sitting area needs to be updated as it was not very comfortable. The tub in master bath had hairs in it from previous visitors. Also there are gecko lizards throughout the house. these comments are not directed to the owner (he was kind and helpful) but who ever the cleaning service is does not clean it very well.at all

GREAT TRIP

  • 5 of 5

We loved Boardwalk beach house. It was clean and the location was excellent. This was our first trip to St George Island and we will defnitely return. The house was well stocked with bedding, linens and supplies to get you started. The beach and water were both beautiful. This is a very dog friendly island and our two pooches felt right at home in The Boardwalk.

We will certainly return.

A lovely & relaxing seeking SGI

  • 5 of 5

You can't beat this place! The view, the proximity to town and the beach and the space are great. We had a great week. Being dog friedly is also a huge bonus. Boardwalk had just about everything we needed and we would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Great vacation and house

  • 5 of 5

We were first time visitors to St. George Island and had an amazing time. We were looking for quiet beaches and no crowds - found it! Couldn't ask for a better view of the beach every morning and the clear skies at night made star gazing a must. The house had everything we needed and booking was super easy. Coming back again, but with our dogs next time.
