“Fantastic Ocean Retreat”

Reviewed 3 Jun 2010

This is the 5th year we have stayed in a Plantation rental on St. George Island. Doctor's Orders is our favorite so far. We loved being right on the beach but it was also great to jump in the private pool for a swim. The home was furnished beautifully...we loved that there were 3 sofas in the living room since there were 6 of us watching tv & dvds. The kitchen was well-equipped, plenty of furniture on the many balconies & everything in the home was clean & comfortable.

Response from the manager Thank you for sharing your rental experience with us. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your vacation on St. George Island and your stay at Doctor's Orders. We are delighted you found the home to be a "Fantastic Ocean Retreat" and well equipped for your group. We value your patronage and look forward to having you as our guest again soon. Be sure to check our website regularly for new specials and discounts. Sincerely, Resort Vacation Properties.

“Just what the "Doctor Orders"”

Reviewed 15 Dec 2009

Once a year, my wife, two grown children, daugher-in-law and grandson have a week's vacation together. This year is was Doctor's Orders. We could not have asked for a nicer home, location and services from RVP, although we didn't need anything from RVP, everything was in "Order". The beach is something to write home about, very beautiful, right out the front door and extremely private. The area has some of the best restaurants to be found, especially for local seafood. The home is spacious, modern and everything works. The views from it are spectacular. Security is exceptional with a gated community. The pool is perfect. There's plenty to do in the area for all; children's playground in town, beach, charter fishing, which we did, sightseeing, etc. We flew our aircraft and used both the public airport in Apalachicola and the private one on SGI. If I could come up with a complaint, it would be the stairs. An elevator would be nice, but obviously not practical. At least you'll get your exercise. Most properties on the beach are elevated for protection. We fully intend to return in 2010.

Response from the manager Thank you for taking the time to share your vacation rental experience with us. We are delighted that you and the family enjoyed your visit to St. George Island and your stay at Doctor’s Orders. Thank you for sharing all of this wonderful information about St. George Island and what there is to do here. We believe St. George Island to be a unique family destination and are so pleased you and the family will be joining us again this August at Doctor’s Orders. See you this summer! Sincerely, Resort Vacation Properties

“great time”

Reviewed 16 Jan 2009

The photos do not accurately illustrate the view. It is gorgeous. The pool was well maintained. The bike trails through the community were another perk. We had a small maintanence problem and rental agency was very quick to respond. Enjoyed our week very much

The home is roomy, well air conditioned, located on the beach with a private pool...for the most part a great our opinion there are some things to write about in a review. We would not stay there again this coming vacation because: 1. It could stand updating and a thorough cleaning 2. When we arrived the microwave was broken. The rental people replaced it very quickly. That was not a big deal. 3. This is supposed to be a "no pets" home, but within two days of our stay without a pet...... our 6 month old grandson was on a blanket on the floor and we found him covered in fleas. It was an inconvenience for us to be out of the home for 3 hours while they treated the home for fleas. Does anyone REALLY check to see if people bring pets into a home during people's stay? We did not ask for some sort of compensation because of this situation, but thought it appropriate of the rental company to offer us something. They barely apologized. This is a case of us NOT being the proverbial "squeaky wheel" (the one that gets the grease, you know!) We just had hoped at a place with this reputation would have been more concerned and offered us something. Chances are we would have said NO...but since they did nothing, we feel the need to write this report.
