About Pam & Tim

We live & work in North Georgia. We have a small hobby farm with many wonderful animals that we call family. Many years ago we discovered SGI where we could vacation with our Great Danes! Our dream has been to own a house on the island where we can vacation and share our home with other wonderful people!

Pam & Tim purchased this bungalow in 2013

Beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

Great room layout. Loved the sofa and small table in the kitchen. There are a lot of stairs. Had fenced in area for the dogs. A little far from the beach, but we did have use of the golf cart. Overall it was perfect for my husband, me, our daughter and son-in-law and our three granddaughters and two dogs. Very relaxing setting.

Awesome Kitchen and Pool.

  • 5 of 5

I have been coming to SGI for more than 10 years and we loved this house! The pool and porch and kitchen we really nice. I usually prefer beach front, but the use of the golf cart was super nice and was very convenient to use to go to the beach.

Very spacious for our family which included 6 adults and 3 pre schoolers and 1 infant.

  • 4 of 5

We all really enjoyed the pool after a day at the beach. Unfortunately the pool lights for night swimming didn't work. Waterfall didn't function properly. Nice seating around pool area. Liked the kitchen area and dining room. We could all sit around dining room table. Could have had a decent spatula and a skillet that didn't stick. Great appliances. Beds were comfy. I liked the cottage feel of quilts on beds and the decorative pillows through out the house. Hot & cold faucets were reversed in loft bathroom. Shower up there wasn't easily regulated. One of those sinks was very slow to drain.

Plenty of parking in drive.We really enjoyed having use of golf cart! Such a treat for the kids to go for rides! Close enough to walk to beach. Our family had a fun week at the house and made many wonderful memories! We love St. George Island!

Owner's Response: The pool light has 2 switches and they both have to be on - one in the house in the dinning room and one outside by the pool. Waterfall can also be adjusted by pool company. Wish you had called us. I will make sure we add some new things to the kitchen - spatulas and non-stick pans. The bathroom upstairs will be completely re-done this fall! Thanks for staying at Buddy's and thanks for the info as it helps us improve! Tim & Pam

Nice home

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week in the home, the location was fine and safe. The golf cart was perfect it gave us fast easy access to the beach and bay. Plus it gave us another option, to use for a quick trip to town. The house was clean, and "stocked" good. No issues with hot water, we had seven people in the house. Pool was great!
