Out of the 4 places I have stayed on St. George Island, this is probably my least favorite. It was a good house in a good location, but it was set back from the beach pretty far and the driveway was both shared and difficult to navigate with potholes. The neighbors were loud and may have caught their house in fire at one point. If you get great neighbors, it would be a great place. It`s just so close to the next house that who is there really matters.As far as the house goes, everything was pretty well functional, if dated. The widow`s walk was cool but the railing is a mere suggestion.I don`t want this review to sound overly negative or critical, because really everything was fine. It wasn`t exceptional but it was fine. I know that I paid a higher rate because of the crazy high demand right now, so it was adequate for the money. The privacy at that part of the beach really can`t be beat - it`s pretty much right in the middle of the two main public beach areas on the island, so you really do have a nice stretch of beach to yourself. The island was PACKED with people and it never felt crowded.I also love the mural in the downstairs bathroom. For a windowless bathroom it sure was nice and bright!My kids really liked the twin bed headboards because they were shelves where they could keep all their stuff. My dog loved laying in the sun on the deck in the morning while we drank our coffee and watched dolphins.If the price went down 40% I would not hesitate to rent this place again. But I know that demand is high right now and so are prices. This review was submitted while the home was managed by a different property management company.
