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.

Fun fabulous house in perfect location!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week at The Boardwalk. It was our first time visiting St George Island. I hate to let the secret out....but this place is AMAZING!! We loved the fun decor of The Boardwalk. Decorated very nice. Unit was very clean. We have 4 kids so there was a great amount of space for 6 of us. Very helpful to have 3 full bathrooms. We have previously stayed in condos on the upper coast and thoroughly enjoyed The Boardwalk and the very quick walk to the beach and back to the house. At condos it was always a time consuming production to load up coolers, beach toys etc to go the beach-at The Boardwalk we could just run back whenever we needed (helpful for cocktail refills!!) :-). And finally the location on SGI was perfect! We didn't drive our van the entire week! Everything was within walking distance and we enjoyed our nightly walks to dinner exploring the island. There are also two ice cream shops right across the way and an Italian ice a quick walk away. SGI was the perfect way to experience "island life" right here in the states! It is a relaxed atmosphere with very little commercialization. Beautiful starry nights can be seen since there are no high rises. We spent the days playing in the ocean, watching dolphins (my favorite!) and at night had fun seeing the crabs run the beach. Thank you SGI and The Boardwalk for the incredible week....already looking forward to returning!!

Wonderful home to stay in

  • 5 of 5

We've rented Boardwalk more than one time. The location could not be any better; close to grocery, fuel, park and lighthouse, and of course walking distance to all of the fun bars and restaurants and bike/golf cart rentals. The beds are all very comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped. The beach is very dog friendly. Our golden retriever had a blast running on the beach. Also, our top requirement: the home was very clean upon our arrival. If you feel like leaving the island, Apalachicola is a must see. Too many great restaurants to name and a stop for music at The Bowery Station is highly recommended. We will be back.

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.
