The service was excellent. Had problem with the frig and it was taken care of right away. The home was great, clean and nicely decorated but better suited for a family with several children, not two couples. The downstairs br with bath advertised as queen, but was actually a full. The location was a little disappointing, as I thought we would have better ocean view. Loved the pool and wi fi. Least liked - no ocean view from porch. Best - quite and secluded. Read more
We are delighted to hear that you found Southern Charm to be a quiet & secluded getaway. We apologize for any confusion on the bed sizes. After receipt of your review, we inspected the property to be sure the beds had not been changed without our knowledge and we verified that the bed in the downstairs bedroom is indeed a queen sized bed. We apologize that the view did not fully meet your expectations. Our website advertises this home as nature view as it is nestled among scenic island vegetation in the St. George Plantation. A Gulf view is available from the top level master suite. Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. We appreciate your patronage & look forward to having you back as our guests again soon.

When we were looking on vrbo.com for a vacation home, we searched for a beach front home. We arrived to find that the only view of the beach was a sliver seen from the third floor deck. We were not happy schlepping beach gear back and forth a few times each day. (The website has been corrected since then.)Also, the matresses and linens were not of good quality.
I have been reluctant to respond to your request for a review since it was not favorable. The homeowners were very gracious online. The children enjoyed the wi-fi for their games & iphones. The adults enjoyed the decks. Read more
Thank you for taking the time to share your vacation rental feedback with us. We apologize that the location of Southern Charm did not meet your expectations. Some of our owners choose to cross-promote their property through vrbo.com and other similar websites. From time to time there may be a discrepancy in the property descriptions. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused. We’re sorry that the mattresses didn’t suit your party well. The comfort of beds is often subjective and what’s comfortable for one person may be uncomfortable for someone else. We appreciate your feedback and will pass this information on to the property owners for their review. Should you choose to visit St. George Island in the future, we hope you will allow us to find a beachfront home that exceeds your expectations.
Sincerely, Resort Vacation Properties
good experience-couldve been better

Only a few issues ;
Mosquitos were AWFUL at the pool and the mosquito magnet was broken. We were told that the mosquito magnet was supposed to have been thrown away and not replaced.
The carpet looked clean but would turn white socks to black by walking across the room.
The pots and pans were awful. I didnt feel comfortable eating food that was cooked in the cookware.
We got LOTS of telemarketing calls on the house line. Not something I wanted to deal with while on vacation. Read more
Thank you for sharing your rental experience with us. We are sorry that you encountered some issues during your stay at Southern Charm. Due to the natural and pristine environment on St. George Island, wildlife of all sorts flourishes. This can often include mosquitoes and other pests. Depending on the time of year, mosquito repellent can be an extremely valuable tool to include in your vacation supplies. Upon further review of this issue, the owner has decided to keep the mosquito magnet and it has been repaired and is working properly. Thank you for making us aware of the telemarketer calls you experienced during your visit, we would never want a guest to be inconvenienced in this way and have recommended that our owners have their numbers placed on the Do-Not-Call list. Since your visit this past summer many of the kitchen supplies at Southern Charm have been replaced and the carpets have been cleaned. We hope that when you decide on your next visit to St. George Island, you will choose us to handle your vacation needs.
Cordially, Resort Vacation Properties

Southern Charm is an awesome place to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. The easy check-in process allowed us to go straight to the house upon arrival. The short walk to the beach made this house a convenient location for us. My family also enjoyed the pool. We are hoping to return to this property in the future. Read more
Thank you for the positive feedback about Southern Charm and our company. We have really worked hard to make our check-in and check-out procedures easy for our guests because we understand that after a long trip to get here, (especially when arriving at all hours of the day), it's not at all convenient to have to stop at a Check-In Center to pick up keys, etc. Southern Charm is a wonderful home and the homeowners will be pleased to hear that you are interested in staying there in the future. Again, we thank you for choosing Resort Vacation Properties and we look forward to seeing you again soon.

We have vacationed at St. George Island 7 times over the past 12 years, and have never been disappointed. Last year, my husband and children had a wonderful retreat at Southern Charm. The home was clean, well equipped, and we particularly enjoyed the private pool. The carport was oddly constructed in conjuction with the driveway though. There was only one covered parking space available. We took advantage of the bike/walking paths daily as well as the short trek to the beach. The only drawback to renting property is the annual elevation of fees. During this downfall in our economy, the prices continue to rise despite the fall of other economic goods. We will be back again, whenever we can afford it.
