Lots of beach toys and gear already there. A very thoughtful gift basket was left for our arrival. The owners were responsive and we could tell they really love their property. Beds were clean and comfortable as were the couches and living space. We loved how close it was to the beach! Best spring break we have had with our friends and family.

This home is AMAZING! What a wonderful slice of heaven! We loved exploring St George Island with our family. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Fully stocked with everything we needed. Even a super cute cooler gift basket with delicious snacks! The beds were amazingly comfortable. The steps from the porch to the beach were so few that it made me feel as if I were waking up right on the beach. The privacy this home offers is off the charts. The hot tub and pool were very relaxing. The pool had colorful lights for night time swimming and our kids truly enjoyed that the most. The property owner was always available to answer any questions and I appreciated that. The town is half a mile away and we enjoyed being able to walk to our favorite restaurant, the blue parrot, just right down the beach. The town has many fun things to do and check out. We rented a boat and took it down the Apalachicola river and parked the boat at the docks of Half Shell dockside restaurant. Delciious food! We also had the local pizza restaurant, BJs pizza, cook us up some fabulous pizza and sandwiches quite a few times. 10/10 for this trip. The first time our kids have ever expressed how badly they wanted to STAY and live here forever. Can’t say we blame them. It was AMAZING. Looking forward to coming again some day. It was very spacious for the 10 of us. Five adults and five children. Ages 5-14. It accommodated all of our needs.

Southwind is spacious and cozy at the same time.A perfect house for a family vacation.....we took full advantage of all the amenities..the pool, the hot tub and the miles of beach. We would definitely come back.....thank you Rob and Lauri for sharing your beautiful St.George house. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

We stay at a lot of VRBOs and this property is top 5 easily. The kitchen is completely stocked, they actually give you garbage bags and toilet paper and those normal things humans need! If you’ve stayed at other places you know what I mean! The house is clean and decorated with tasteful modern touches while keeping the integrity of the homes bones. High ceilings and exposed beams, en-suite bathrooms in every room, gorgeous decks and sweet little nooks complete this fabulous property. I almost don’t want to post this because I want to be able to book it again and worry it will be booked solid! The owners were friendly and left a sweet little gift bag to welcome us. The only issues we encountered was with the property management company (not the owner) but they were using new software so I’ll assume that was the problem and not the norm for them.

This home is a recent refurb with all the amenities. The interior layout is unique and interesting - not the common 4 wall beach house. All rooms (excluding baths) have full view of the ocean. The day time living areas (living room, kitchen, & dining room) are spacious, tastefully decorated, and quite comfortable. The living room`s 4 bay sized windows offer expansive views of the ocean in any weather. The four bedroom suites are all comfortably sized with additional space allocated to the two masters. There is ample seating indoors and out doors. The later including 3 decks (2 covered) on the main level, 2 on the 2nd level, and pool side seating. The heated pool and spa are big plusses to be enjoyed year round. The owners are very conscious of pleasing guests, even providing a welcoming gift - how very considerate! Oh, let me not fail to mention the 4 baths are spacious and up to-date. I could say even more...the many provided amenities are generally not found in other St George rentals. About St George Island - it is a great retreat from the concerns of everyday life. Leave your cares behind and enjoy yourself to the fullest.

This was our 2nd trip to the South Wind and it was just perfect in every way. This house is very unique and we think that one of the best parts is how guests can have their own private suites. The view is gorgeous from every room and the mattresses and bedding were so comfy and clean. We really enjoyed the very well-placed porch swing to drink our coffee and watch the sunrise. And that pool! So refreshing after a day at the beach, and there were SO MANY floatation options! We all figured out our favorites.Thank you, Lauri and Rob, for welcoming us to your beach paradise! We are already checking our calendar to book our next visit to the South Wind. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

I just returned to reality after a beautiful week at the South Wind on St. George Island. Every single room in this place has an incredible view of the beach and ocean. All of the bedrooms have their own bathroom and deck access - the upstairs bedrooms have a small private outside sitting area where you can have coffee or read a book, all with a view. The kitchen is fully stocked and we were able to cook some great meals. The beachside pool is pretty incredible. After a few hours on the beach, there was nothing better than hanging out at the pool to finish the afternoon. The house comes stocked with beach towels, chairs, umbrellas and pool floats. AND, at the end of the day, nothing beats the outdoor shower. I will definitely return! This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

The house was fantastic with new, heated pool and new hot tub. Room for 6 adults and 3 kids under 3 with no problem. Lots of amenities on property. TONS of towels. Used washer/dryer a lot. Deck is amazing. Beach even more so. Lots of kitchen utensils. Stocked Keurig coffees. Owner was incredible at communication and service.

We are truly grateful to the owners for sharing this gem! You have wall-to-wall views of the ocean in the kitchen/main room and every bedroom also has a perfect view of the ocean - we saw dolphins on several occasions! The house has every amenity (great Bose speaker system, sheets and towels like a high end hotel, every utensil and pot you might want in the kitchen, etc.) and the hot tub and heated pool really put this stay above and beyond other beach-side homes. The gear rental included was also key - we had bikes delivered to the house. The interior design is gorgeous and fun - loved the turtles on the high wooden ceiling. Only thing to note - do bring warm clothes if it is chilly, as HVAC is set up more for AC (cool air to fall down) and the heater really only warmed the upstairs. Though we visited on an unseasonably cold and rainy week, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay with the beautiful space, views, hot tub, and beach walks.

We have rented many VRBO beach houses and this is one of the best. The location is perfect. The house was sparkling clean and was well equipped with everything we needed. The hot tub and pool were wonderful amenities.. We were not familiar with the area and were very pleased with the location of the property. The beach is gorgeous - great for walking, shelling and relaxing. We loved St. George Island State Park too. It was a great escape from the cold weather in Chicago. The owner communicated quickly and with valuable information. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

Lauri-I am just sending a follow up message to say how very very much we enjoyed your home on SGI. You guys put so much love and care (not to mention money-hahaha) into it, it was just a delight to the eyes--and a respite for the soul! Your attention to detail --from art to the whimsical little items around amazed us all and it felt like home the minute we walked in. This was our first trip to SGI and it certainly did not disappoint!!! Thanks for sharing your home away from home!!!

We stayed at the South Wind for a girls trip and it was the most perfect place to be! The decor is so bright and airy, yet relaxing! There was plenty of space for us all to spread out and be comfortable in our own rooms- and the beds are so huge and cozy! By far the best part of the trip was waking up and drinking coffee on the incredible porch. It extends the length of the house and has various seating options to enjoy those breathtaking oceanfront views from all angles. All appliances are in perfect shape and easy to use, and we were able to find everything we needed. The location of the house could not have been more perfect- the beach was very private and secluded, but it is a short walk to all of the restaurants and shops in town. All in all there is nothing we would change. The South Wind is heaven and we will absolutely be returning!

This was our second time staying at SouthWind and we absolutely love it. The house is decorated beautifully and very comfy beds! The pool and hot tub are great! The view is amazing and your just steps from the beach. This house has everything you need. Everyone on the island was very nice and the restaurants are great. We couldn’t ask for a better vacation!

We were blown away by the South Wind! This beach house has everything you could possibly need. The kitchen is very well stocked. Our favorite appliance was the fancy coffee maker that makes lattes and cappuccinos. Coffee on the deck watching the sunrise was the best way to start our day. We appreciated the privacy of each guest room having their own private bath. The beds were very comfortable and you can see the gulf from your bed.The living room was bright, clean, and very comfortable. Even with a big group, everyone had a cozy place to sit back and relax. We had several very fun family game nights with the board games provided.The private pool was delightful and we loved the outdoor bluetooth speakers so we could listen to our favorite tunes while swimming or in the hot tub. If you have never taken a shower in an outdoor shower, you need to during this trip. It is so refreshing to wash off all of the sunscreen at the end of a fun day at the beach. This house has lots of special touches and we have already reserved a week for next year. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.

I stayed at your beautiful beach house last week with my family. I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed it! We can’t thank you enough for sharing it with us. You have gone above and beyond to make everything feel like home. We made memories with our children and my parents that we will cherish forever. We hope we can come back next year! We would love for you to let us know when it will be available to book for then. Thank you again and we hope you are doing well!

We loved staying at South Wind! This house has everything you need. There are enough beds/bathrooms for our entire family and enough spaces that we`re not on top of each other all day. The house is clean and beautiful, the kitchen is fully stocked, there are pool and beach toys, and the location can`t be beat. The beachfront views are incredible (we loved watching the stars at night), and it`s easy to get what you need down to the water without too much hassle.
