Felt like a home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The Captain's Lounge was everything we had hoped it would be. This was our first trip taking our dogs to the beach. The house was exactly as it appeared on the site. The fenced in yard was a great convenience. The location is perfect - about 4 blocks or so from the beach, which provided a nice walk. Everything is super convenient. We fell in love with St. George's Island and how laid back, dog friendly, and islandy it felt. There are no typical chain fast food restaurants or stores. Jennifer was a pleasure to deal with from the time we booked it all the way through. She recommended both the Blue Parrot and the Owl Café and we loved both of them. We hope to return to the Captain's Lounge and St. George's soon.

Awesome Place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Captains Lounge and loved the view of the bay and were just a short walk to the beach. Jennifer was very quick to answer any questions and booking was so easy. The only disappointment we had was the towel/washcloth sets provided were only one set for each of us and I had to wash the towels every other day. It would have been nice to have at least 2 sets per person or we would have brought extra sets from home. But, this was not that big of a deal...just bring extras with you. The only other thing I would have liked was a large door mat or something in the foyer to catch all the sand coming in that still made its way upstairs even though we left all shoes in the foyer. It was very pet friendly and the fenced in backyard was great for Lucy. She by far seemed to have liked this place better than any VRBO’s we have stayed at before. The home was decorated very neat and we loved all the pictures! It's a wonderful place to stay and quite a gem!

Fantastic stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is the place for families with kids. Although, there are a lot of stairs, the house has so many toys, books, beach toys, board games and dvds (for those rainy days). The beds were very clean and omg they were comfortable! The kitchen is more than enough for all your needs. The bathrooms are excellent and plenty for our group. Everything looks like it has been updated recently too. The bay views are breathtaking. We were very happy with our stay and would recommend this place!

Our 2nd SGI trip!

  • 5 of 5

First I have to say, Jennifer was an absolute pleasure to do business with! We loved the captains lounge and the view of the bay was amazing! There were 7 of us plus 3 fur babies and we had more than enough room! It's a 5 minute walk to the beach and close to all of the shops!! Perfect SGI trip!!

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.

  • 5 of 5

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.
