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!

Very relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay with our kids and parents. The pool was wonderful, plenty of space, bedrooms, bathrooms and the beach was a few short steps away. We will consider returning for our next beach trip.

A Hidden Treasure

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay. The house is in a gated community so the beach was not crowded at all. Cam was great and very timely whenever we had a question or concern. I was torn when I was looking at houses, wanting a beach view, but having 2 kids (15/11) I knew the pool would be a good thing as well. It was a great choice. The beach Is less than a 2 minute walk and the boys loved being able to come back and swim. There are a lot of stairs so not recommended for anyone older that doesn't do stairs very well. We loved this place and will definitely go back!

Best Vacation in Years!

  • 5 of 5

With a large family and lots of smaller kids, most of our vacations in the last few years have been to theme parks and have been in continuous motion... This year, we decided to take it down a notch and really relax. We could not have picked a better place! The house was beautiful and extremely accommodating for our group of 10! Then, the pool and surrounding fauna really gave us a private family area that was peaceful and secluded. The beach was clean and the lack of crowds made for yet another peaceful experience. I hope to make it back regularly to this gorgeous get away! Absolutely loved it!

Very nice house.

  • 4 of 5

We were very pleased with this rental. Pool area was good, house was very neat and rooms were spacious. Kitchen stove and refrigerator were adequate but should be updated. Loved the decks and the large carport/parking area. Carpet on stairs was loose in places but not worn. Beds were comfortable. Cam was easy to communicate with and very helpful. We would recommend this property for families and have encouraged our family to rent again next year!

Owner's Response: We were very thankful you let us know about the carpet so we could take care of it immediately. The refrigerator and dishwasher are less than 2 years old. We chose to put in very basic but adequate appliances because the ice maker and water dispenser on our last refrigerator were repeatedly misused and needed continuous maintenance -- and repair. We had the same experience with the dishwasher. We have tried to spare our guests the inconvenience of those calls.

Tropical paradise with an ocean!

  • 4 of 5

Totally enjoyed our family vacation at hidden treasure! every morning we enjoyed a leisurely breakfast on the deck enjoying the bird sounds and the wilderness. Then off to the beach for a morning of ocean fun. Watching Dolphins and our little ones playing in the sand and waves was priceless. Great "almost private" beach area was perfect with nice sand, and the water had a very large area to play in before the water got deep. After lunch we had plenty of activities with rented bikes, kyacs, fishing and playing in the crystal clean pool. Our son had the pleasure of a catch (and release ) 90 pound tarpin on a fishing expedition.

The house was very nice and clean and Cam was charming and responsive to any little thing that came up.

Great memories!

St George Island is a beautiful barrier island with 17 miles of pristine beach. It is not unusual to see dolphins, blue herons, osprey and even bald eagles while visiting the island. 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.
