About David Crenshaw

Welcome to SEAVIEW! We have been coming to St.George Island since 1992 when our kids were young. The initial appeal to St. George Island was the vast, beautiful white sand beaches with no crowds and the overall laid back atmosphere. And you know what? St. George is still like that! A 'crowded' day at the beach is seeing 20 people in either direction.... for miles! Additionally, St George is a safe place...from the Gulf waters being gentler than the Atlantic to the fact that most people on SGI do not lock their car when they go out...because they do not need to.

For 10 years, we rented homes at SGI and then decided to purchase. Seaview is our 3rd home and we purchased it in the fall of 2004 when the home was 1 yr old.

We love SEAVIEW and try our best to be sure it is always in excellent condition. We have had, and continue to have, fun decorating SEAVIEW and selecting colors and artwork that make SEAVIEW a cheerful and relaxing place to visit.

Suzy and I are retired and live in Decatur,Ga (a small town 6 miles east of downtown Atlanta) in a historic neighborhood in a home we designed and built in 2007. We do get to SEAVIEW several times a year as we find it our peaceful and relaxing retreat.

Our three kids are now grown and live all over the world. We try to make SEAVIEW our gathering point for those occasions when we can all be together at the same time.

We welcome you to make SEAVIEW your place to make memories with your family.

David and Suzy

David Crenshaw purchased this house in 2004

Why David Crenshaw chose Florida

We bought our home at St George Island after looking at several other areas. St George offers the best combination of very low population density (no high rises), one of the top 3 beaches in the US, one of the top fishing spots in the US, and a nice variety of local stores that offer all we need when we visit. Additionally, it a nature lovers area with lots of estuary areas as well as a 7 mile long state park that is nationally known. It is common to see egrets right on the beach and SGI is known for its turtle nesting areas.

What makes this house unique

When we go to SEAVIEW, we enjoy the vast beautiful beach and our private pool and hot tub. Words can not describe the beauty of the nightime skies from the hot tub.....SGI does not have any street lights so the skies are more visable. And the sunrises and sunsets are simply unbelievable! We also like to take walks on the beach or in the estuary which is one block back of our home. And then we like to bicycle on the 10 mile long bike path in front of our home that is mostly flat and easy to bike! And of course, we often do nothing at all but relax on the deck in our chairs! We also like the quality and variety of the numerous restaurants on St. George as well as those in close by historic Apalachicola.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Despite a mix of rainy and sunny days, our two families has a wonderful time at Seaview. Our kids spend hours in the pool..rain or shine..and we made it to the beach more than a handful of times.The State Park was a must and our favorite place to eat was the Blue Patriot--a great view of the shoreline when you eat outside..

The house was wonderful--great spaces and great amenities...i think we had it all! We especially appreciated the Pak N Play and booster seat for our 2 year nice not to have to bring those things along during travel.

Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Fall Break 2016

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I decided that in the rushed and chaotic world we're living in and raising our 4 boys( 14, 13, and 7 yr old twins) that we wanted to find a place that was low key. We decided on St George and with a lot of patience and looking we found Seaview! The house had great reviews and looked amazing! We loved that we had ocean views from each of the three balconies! The kids loved the pool and the outdoor space was great! The house was clean and had lots of amenities included that we would normally have to purchase(paper towels, dishwashing soap, dishwasher tablets, trash can liners, and more) The house is kid safe with a gate on the 2nd floor balcony so the twins couldn't access the pool without an adult. The beach was a short distance and the outside closet was full of beach accessories! We enjoyed a short drive across the bridge one day to Apalachicola where we parked and walked around and enjoyed some shopping. We also enjoyed St George Island State Park where we found tons of shells! My favorite place was the hammock! Highly recommend this house. You won't be disappointed. Thanks David and Suzy for providing us with a beautiful home and making another fall break with our boys successful!

Great Views

  • 4 of 5

Great property, kids enjoyed the pool and close proximity to the beach. The mosquitos were particularly bad this year - it would have been nice to have a screened in porch to enjoy the amazing sunsets but that was the only drawback. The house is well equipped and ample room for two families.

Owner's Response: Sorry for the mosquitos! The county does spray for them on a regular basis but we are fortunate at Seaview to have constant breezes that seem to shoo them away...we have never had a problem ourselves and I have not had any guests report a problem with them. So hopefully this was a one time issue! But thanks for letting us know of your experience. david

Visit to Seaview

  • 5 of 5

House is in great condition with ample room for a family (there were 7 of us). Location is great - was a nice 5 min walk to the beach and the owner provides all you need by way of deck chairs, parasols and kids toys for the beach. Considering this was on the main road in and out of the island, we heard very little traffic and felt we could enjoy the beauty of this island and have the much needed peace we were looking for. The kids loved sitting out on the deck on the night time and enjoy the free summer lighting shows. Would definitely visit this place again.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect in every way. Not only did we tremendously enjoy the pool with our grands we enjoyed the porches and views of the ocean. As a bonus the kids spent much time in the hammock on top crows nest. We watched a beautiful lightening storm up there. The kitchen was perfect with every cooking utensil and pot needed. My daughter commented how wonderful it was to have matching dishes and serving bowls in the dishwasher. The hardest part was navigating all the steps if one has bad knees. This house was great for a multi generational family as our grands and daughter and son in law were all on one level with the washer and dryer. We had the upper level with living and kitchen. The only problem we found was all the steps on living levels made it rough on bad knees. The other negative we encountered was the birds that would surround you if you tried eating on the porches. I saw people at other houses actually feeding the birds which is unkind in my opinion as it trains them to attack food at other houses!! The kids greatly enjoyed all the beach toys and kites. The most well stocked beach closet ever. Thank you Dave for your promptness always in responding to emails. For all the information you shared in the area. We couldn't have asked for a better home owner in VRBO. Would definitely use the house again if opportunity arises.

Owner's Response: Jan and Michael, thanks for your comments! We do try to keep our beach closet supplied with chairs, umbrellas, and lots of other beach goodies...and sometimes that is a challenge. Most of our guests come from some distance and hauling all that kind of stuff down in your car is just not what people want to do! Hope to see you again soon! David and Suzy

Couldn't ask for a better stay!

  • 5 of 5

We typically go to Destin each year but with two 5 year olds the crowds were getting to be a little too much. We took a leap and booked on St. George Island for the first time. Boy were we glad we did! The island itself is quiet. Love that it is not commercialized. People were polite and respected your space on the beach. LOVE that you can keep your tent etc on the beach all week without having to tear down and carry back to your house each day. All we had to do is move our items back to the grassy area. Now on to the house. PERFECT location. Could not have asked for better homeowners. Very responsive to any questions we had. The house was very comfortable with many amenities that most houses don't have. The pool was awesome, the firepit was great. The beds were very comfortable. There were two families in the house and we all had plenty of room. Loved having the porches on each level. A couple houses down was a bald eagle nest with babies so it was fun to use the supplied binoculars each day to watch the birds. We loved the house so much we rented for 2017 while we were enjoying our stay this year.

Owner's Response: Kathleen, thanks for your comments! Yes, SGI is definitely not Destin! The quiet, laid back feel is what many (including teens) are looking for and is the reason we bought Seaview years ago. A Bald Eagle in the! They are often seen on the bay side behind Seaview but this is the first reporting of one in the front yard. And Thanks for renting again in 2017! David and Suzy
