Perfect family island getaway

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend at Captains Lounge and couldn't have asked for a better location and home for our family of 5! With three small kids (5, 2 1/2, and 9 mo.) the set-up was great and the older kids loved sharing the loft. The home was a short walk to the beach which was clean and most days we had it all to ourselves! (We brought a wagon from home which was very helpful for all the beach gear.) We walked everywhere to restaurants, shops, nightly ice cream! The home was clean and we loved all the kid friendly games, books, and movies! Jennifer was so helpful in answering questions prior to the stay, during the stay, and after when some items were left behind and she sent them to us. We had a small issue with the internet but we were on island time and didn't mind unplugging from the real world. Otherwise, the home had everything you needed and then some. We can't wait to get back to the island!

Clean well maintained. Easy access to everything.

My family and two fur babies spent a week at this lovely place. It was within walking distance to everything you need. Beautiful view of the bay could not ask for more. It is on our top 10 places to stay.

Wonderful beach stay

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely love St. George Island and hope to return in the near future! Captain's lounge was wonderful as well!! The location of the home couldn't be more perfect! We literally walked everywhere. We had 4 adults, 1 child, 1 baby and 1 dog and there was plenty of room at all times! The separation of the house was perfect for us as well. Our lab LOVED running on the beach and everyplace seemed super dog friendly! The owner really worked with us and we would highly recommend staying here and can't wait to come back ourselves!

A wonderful, relaxing, exciting getaway

  • 5 of 5

The property was wonderful. It was just as described online. The seller is so helpful and easy to corresponde with. The home was clean, rooms were spacious, and the home had all the essentials. It was just walking distance to all the restaurants, beaches, lighthouse, and attractions. My family (including our dogs) loved the home and love spending time in St. George island. We will be back!!

Nice home, nice location, nice everything!

  • 5 of 5

I would agree that all reviews are very accurate. The home was well appointed and ready for our arrival! We were able to walk to everything! The home has great views! We loved being able to bring our furry faces with us. COMPLETELY UNRELATED to this home...purchase your groceries on the mainland. The island grocery store prices are inflated. We found a nice Piggly Wiggly on the mainland within 15 minutes drive of the home. We would reccomend the home to anyone! The owner's are super to work with! We had an excellent vacation! Thank you!

Great location, view and amenities!

  • 5 of 5

Captain's Lounge was just as described and all the previous reviews are dead-on. The house was very clean and well-maintained. My husband and I, two teenagers and two large dogs had plenty of room and felt immediately at home. It took literally about 15 seconds to walk to the Black Marlin the first night. One night we cooked and had everything we needed to prepare surf & turf. We also walked to the grocery store and a few surrounding shops. We drove to the beach each morning because of the dogs since it was so hot and humid, but we walked to it a couple of evenings with them when it was cooler - a very easy walk. The owners were great to work with and we look forward to returning in the future!
