The proximity to the beach is great. The boardwalk to the beach is in front of the house.5 min walk

  • 4 of 5

Great house for adults and older children. The stairs would be dangerous for young children. The stairs have no backing and a small child could easily fall through. The architecture is very interesting. Our favorite area was the top floor with the kitchen, dining and sitting areas (open concept) that are surrounded by windows and sliding doors looking out to a beautiful view of the sunrise and ocean through the trees.

Couples paradise

  • 4 of 5

As easy a walk to the beach as if we were on it, but saved thousands. Pool was an easy bike ride and not to deep into the plantation so grocery shopping and dining was an easy drive. The house was shocking at first, but it grows on you. It feels like a tree house set above the pines. very private lot. The patios gave a great view of the ocean. Spacious and well appointed. It's an older beach house so a few maintenance issues, but Vivian was on the spot for the stuff that mattered. I didn't sweat the small stuff, I'm on vacation. Would've liked a king sized bed and probably would have been a wreck if I had crawling kids or toddlers because of the stairs, but i'm a helicopter dad so to each his own. We'll be back!

Nice enough house/location but lots of inconveniences!

  • 3 of 5

The house and the location were just fine. The owner was also very responsive to our MANY contacts with her regarding questions or concerns we encountered during our two week stay. That being said, we encountered SO MANY situations which required owner-intervention over the course of two weeks, it really took away from the overall enjoyment of our vacation. I have stayed on St George Island in The Planation 12-15x over the past 20 years and in almost all of those instances, I don't recall having to contact the owner even once, so this was really over the top!

I took my 88 year old mother down for two weeks. I was there the first 9 days and my sister overlapped with me and stayed for week two. I had to contact the owner almost every day during my week regarding some sort of issue/question with the house, some days more than once. Many of these communications could have easily been avoided had the owner been more communicative with us or done a better job of getting the house ready for us before we arrived. Just lots and lots of little things...can't get the DVD player to work and I'm told to check to make sure a prior tenant didn't fiddle with the wiring. Why am *I* checking to make sure the devices in the house are functional? After 45 minutes of batting emails back and forth, it was determined that the required TV remote was elsewhere in the house and the batteries in both DVD remotes were dead. Again, little things, but why are WE fiddling with these on our vacation? The list goes on...upstairs lighting in the spacious living room which is quite confusing with no explanation as to which switches operate which devices. The two main lamps weren't even plugged in and the plugs were hidden under a couch, leading to further confusion. A dead scorpion, a live cockroach and a live mouse in the house...yuck! 88 year old mother having to use a barely functional 1950s-60s hand crank can opener because the electric one is hidden under the sink. Temperature controls on two levels but no explanation of this. It took us 3-4 days to find out why we were roasting at night because no A/C turned on in the bedrooms. The coup de grace was the septic system plugging up during my mother's last few days of vacation. The owner was on this promptly but my sis/mother were not able to flush toilets and were driving to a gas station for toilets for 24 hours. Overall, not the hassle-free experience we were used to and hoping for. Dave Utterback, LaCrosse, WI

We had a great time. The cottage has such character. We loved it! Very clean. The location with the beach was perfect and very quiet and peaceful. Thank you for sharing your place.

Not a good experience.

  • 1 of 5

There were so many spiders inside the house and out. We slept with the lights on every night to keep them at bay. My son and his wife went home early because they had the baby with them. The owners offered to have someone come and spray but we were afraid that it would just flush them out. Also, the air conditioning went out. It was repaired the next afternoon.
