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 old...so nice not to have to bring those things along during travel.

Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Owner's Response: John & Cindy, thanks for your remarks. The pool...is the most popular aspect of Seaview. We made the pool decking bigger to accommodate some shade area, the hot tub, the fire pit and the hot/cold water shower. David and Suzy

Perfect Family Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

We have found it a challenge to find a location where two families can vacation together. Seaview is a perfect spot. There is more than enough room for 4 adults and 4 children to have a great time together and not feel on top of one another. The home is beautiful and the pool area offers sun and shade all day long. The hot tub is nice to sit in under the stars. The interior of the house is well kept and clean. and the two levels of deck looking out over the gulf are wonderful. We had a great stay and made memories for a lifetime.

Wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from the Seaview and we can't say enough about it. The house is beautiful and well taken care of. Mr. Crenshaw does a great job keeping in touch with you before the stay and I even had contact with him during the stay. Very nice and easy to work with and talk to.

Plenty of space, we were 2 families of three and had plenty of space and we each had our own floor. Lots of amenities, and the beach items in the outside closet for our use was an extra bonus. The pool was my favorite. We stayed in it the majority of the time. The beach is a short walking distance (we drove over when we had all of our stuff to set up but at night we would walk over). It's not far at all!

I really can't say enough about it! It's great for the money, the space and all the items that are at the house for your use! We appreciated it all!!

Thank you Crenshaw family...we had a great time! And thank you for not allowing pets!! With allergies and such, this was much welcomed!

Owner's Response: Amber and family from Tennessee...thanks for your kind words about Seaview! We do try to keep enough chairs, umbrellas, sand toys other beach stuff in our closet for all the guests...is it such a hassle to bring those items with you! And yes we have always been a "no pet home". We love dogs but having no control over other dogs behavior is just not something we want to deal with! david and suzy

Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to the Island and it was absolutely beautiful. The Island was nice and quiet and very relaxing. The house is exactly as pictured. Very clean with all the amenities we needed. They have done an amazing job decorating and providing lots of extras in this house. We didn't need to contact the owner because everything we needed was provided for us. Highly recommended!

Winter 2016

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our month at Seaview on St George Island! The home is gorgeous and met all our expectations and needs! There is plenty of room for more then 1 family! Being here in Feb did not allow us to use the pool but it was inviting to just have the view and sit in the sun and enjoy the ambiance! We did enjoy the hot tub which is poolside! The decks with the beautiful view of the ocean have southern exposure and are perfect for morning coffee and soaking up some sun! You see the ocean from every room in this home which we loved!!! St. George Island is a very relaxing and beautiful place to vacation! The Crenshaws are excellent to work with and are prompt and always available for your questions and concerns!!! Would highly recommend this property!!!

Family Friendly and Spacious on St. George Island

  • 5 of 5

We were a little late to booking for our after-Christmas holiday trip (but not too late) and found this wonderful property on St. George Island that easily accommodated our two families enjoying the Florida coast for a week.

The communication before, during and after with David Crenshaw was excellent and responsive and he was very helpful in answering any questions we might have, or in offering suggestions on what else to do when on the island.

The property itself was ideal if you want to be off the beach but still have super easy access - and with a solar-heated pool our families were never far away from water. Alongside the pool were two standing grills which we used 3 times in our 5 day stay and a fire pit, which we also found to be perfect for evening smores with the kids and just sitting by and chatting after bedtime.

There were 4 bedrooms to easily accommodate our group of 4 adults, two children and two toddlers. (Even a pack n' play for the littlest one.) Spaces were clean and well decorated as befits a beach/island property.

The topmost living level held the kitchen/dining space, living room and one of the master bedrooms and all levels had a great Gulf view from only a block and half off the beach.

As is typical with rentals such as this you need to bring just about everything, food-wise, for your stay. But there are a couple of grocery stops right on the island only 2 minutes (no kidding) away for any last minute runs. The Crenshaws provided all of the kitchen accessories we needed and there were fresh sheets and towels throughout the bedrooms at Seaview, as they like to call it.

It was our first time visiting St. George Island. Would we go again? Certainly, and are already thinking about when. Would we stay at Seaview again? Certainly. You will enjoy it as well.

Owner's Response: REG and family..thanks so much for your review. I am glad you had a great stay for your first visit to St George. The two grocery stores close by that you mentioned do a pretty good job of providing most of what you might need. They also usually have firewood for the fire pit. We look forward to your return visit to Seaview. David and Suzy
