Private and clean

  • 4 of 5

My family stayed at this property on St. George, it was a very nice and clean house and we loved the privacy. Cam was very helpful anytime I contacted her. The pool was nice and clean. I would stay here again if it was just my husband and I but stairs were a bit much for the older folks with us, that is no fault of Cam... all was disclosed. Thanks Cam for the piece of mind and great stay.

A True Hidden Treasure

  • 5 of 5

This beach experience has been the best ever for our family. Such a beautiful, serene, spacious place to spend a few precious days. The children enjoyed the pool and the beach and fell into bed every night totally exhausted and happy. The kitchen is complete with anything you need to cook a meal . It is beautifully decorated and yet kid friendly. The steps were not a big challenge except loading and unloading. You feel as if you are in your own private little world with the trees and plants all around. There are plenty of places to escape with a good book away from the TV.

Great getaway from it all on St Georges Island a real "Hidden Treasure".

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I took a much needed vacation to St Georges Island. The house was as advertised with everything we need to feel comfortable and secure. We spent a lot of time exploring the local sites but were able to enjoy the screened in-ground pool a few nights after shopping and site seeing. It’s owner, Cam, was supper responsive with great communication prior to our trip letting us know everything we should expect with accurate directions, instructions and provided a detailed list on things the house included. The house is situated within a nice gated community which is very cosmetically pleasing and relaxing. A short walk through a shaded boardwalk each day and it was like we had our own beach. Overall it was an awesome getaway and I’m looking forward to returning.

Our vacation at A Hidden Treasure holiday home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I very much enjoyed our week long stay. We especially appreciated the quiet, privacy and spaciousness of the accommodations. The house is surrounded by forest, with access to the beach via a few hundred yard long elevated boardwalk through the forest. The house is in excellent condition with all required amenities provided. We'll be coming back in the near future!

Relax and enjoy fishing, boating, walking , bicycling, swimming shelling, and star gazing. Close by is historic Appalachicola with its many restaurants and shops as well as the Dixie Theater. Bring your golf clubs --a challenging course is a only a short drive. Spend a long weekend and enjoy the local Seafood Festival and Chili Cook off.
