“Reunion 2014”

Reviewed 1 Aug 2014

This house was beautiful! We loved it! A lot of stairs but it was worth it! Lots of movies and books, kitchen well stocked. Rooms and decor beautiful!! Perfect for our family.

“great vacation”

Reviewed 4 Oct 2012

St George Island is a great vacation spot! The "Shore Thing" rental was perfect for our family. Convenient to everything and all necessities were present.

“Best Value on the Island”

Reviewed 23 Jan 2012

This home is the best value on the island. Very nice size bedrooms, wonderful kitchen and large family room. Oversized bathrooms and wonderful showers add a nice touch. Our kids love the pool. Short walk to the beach. This home is much larger than it looks from the outside picture. (I included a better one below) If there was a negative I would say it would be the stove, it's an older electric stove. With a beautiful kitchen like that you want to make an amazing gourmet meal but you really have to improvise and be creative with that stove. :) That being said, I can say we have stayed at several of the homes on the island and this is the first one we decided to stay a second year in a row! It truely is the best value for the money.

“Nice large house close to the beach”

Reviewed 23 Jan 2012

We stayed at this home in June 2011. It was our first time to St. George Island. The pros: The home was large for our family of 7 and had plenty of room to spread out. It was nicely decorated and clean. You did have a nice view of the Gulf from the top floor. The pool was great and clean. The area was very laid back and relaxing. Resort Vacation Properties was very easy to work with. The cons: the refrigerator never really got "cold". A repairman came by and worked on it and although it was better, it still did not work completely right...for the rest of the week, we just tried not to open the door too much to keep the food chilled. We sat the a/c at 73 (as there was a warning about setting it much lower or it would freeze up) but since it only had one a/c unit, the second floor would be very cool and the upstairs stayed at least 5-10 degrees hotter. Had to keep fans running day and night upstairs. The mattresses desperately need to be replaced. It is quite a walk to the beach...we ended up just driving there most days. Finally, the beach was nice..but not like the white beaches of Panama City Beach or Destin. The only thing that was a nuisance at the beach were the animals. There were always at least a few dogs running around without leases and the owners apparently were not "cleaning" up after them (just throwing sand over it) as the beach had a stench of their "leavings". Each day we moved either up or down the beach to get to a "clean" smelling area. I am sure this is not the "norm" but it was during our week there. All in all, it was a relaxing week at St. George's Island and this home was quite nice.

Response from the manager We appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback with us. We are pleased that you enjoyed a relaxing week on St. George Island & found A Shore Thing well suited to your needs. We are pleased to report that there have been no additional reports of problems with the refrigerator or the A/C since your visit. We apologize that some pet owners were not as conscientious as others. As you note, this is certainly not the “norm.” With regards to the mattresses, we often find that the comfort of mattresses is subjective. What may be comfortable for one person may be uncomfortable for the next. We appreciate your comments and have forwarded them to the homeowners for their review & consideration. Thank you for your patronage. We look forward to having you back as our guest again soon. Cordially, Resort Vacation Properties

“Great family vacation”

Reviewed 10 Jun 2010

House was well equiped and comfortable. The only negative was there were no directions on the trash collection days. Overall, we had a great stay and would recommend it.

“Nice get away!”

Reviewed 15 Dec 2009

Nice two level get away with a good view of the Gulf in the short distance. No problem getting extra towels or any other service offered. Loved the little swimming pool and under house parking. Least liked the lack of maintenance on the upper level screened-in area notably the screen door. Over-all, an enjoyable stay on my favorite island.

Response from the manager Thank you for your valuable feedback on your stay at A Shore Thing. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your vacation with us. We apologize that the screens on the porch had some holes and are hopeful that this didn’t cause you or your guests too much discomfort. We are pleased to report that the screens were repaired after your stay and no other issues have been reported. We hope that when you again visit your “favorite island” that you will give us the chance to serve your vacation needs. Sincerely, Resort Vacation Properties

“A Shore Thing is a Sure Thing!”

Reviewed 15 Dec 2009

We had a great Spring Break experience on St George Island. A friend of mine and I took our seniors and a couple friends there for their "senior trip". Knowing the type of kids we were dealing with, we listened to their desires for spring break; beach, warm, friends,not too costly. We chose St George Island after internet research and met all their criteria. When we arrived, the look on their faces was priceless. It was way over the top, more than they had dreamed of. The week was perfect, good friends, very nice accommodations, great beach, wonderful memories.

“BEST WEEK OF THE YEAR!”

Reviewed 27 Jan 2009

Five friends (all women) stayed at A Shore Thing last year. We all had a wonderful time. The kitchen is great for preparing meals, very roomy and spacious. We especially loved the really large dining table! The bedrooms were comfortable, the decor was nice, we had everything we needed for our stay. We loved the screened in porch on the back upper deck, and the stairway down the back to the pool. It's a little bit of a walk to the beach, but we spent most of our time at the pool, so it wasn't a problem. It is a nice house if you are looking for a comfortable house not right on the beach.
