“The Jasmine is wilting a bit”
This was our 5th stay in The Plantation, 3rd visit to Jasmine Joy. First time in 2004 when home was new. It was perfect. It still has some very nice qualities, but I'm sorry to say it is now showing some neglect. -Carpeted stairs at entry looking dirty and worn. Need cleaning. solution: provide a bigger mat outside to clean feet adequately. -Center atrium door doesn't stay closed unless you lift up on the handle after it is already closed. Solution: Repair or replace hardware -Old low def television, poor picture quality (not that tv is our top priority) Solution: Spring for a flat screen. Just in the living room. -Sofa/Loveseat faded and worn out looking. Swivel stool loose bolts. I understand that furniture takes a beating in rental beach houses. And it's still comfortable, but really needs replacing. Solution: Haverty's has it. -Big slit in screen panel, upstairs deck, corner screen. Solution: replace panel -Standing water in outdoor shower Solution: drill small holes in base of louvered wall to allow water to escape. Rusting grill, broken straps on pool chairs, a few dings on the walls. And, come on... it's 2013! Where's the wifi? Most other rentals in The Plantation have them. It was a royal pain to constantly monitor our usage. For the first time, I'm considering another home next year. Now just when you're thinking I'm a complete jerk, let me tell you what we love about the home. It's beautiful. Secluded, well designed, nice trim, pine floors, tasteful decorating, spotless, (except for the mummified apple I found under my dresser. How long had that been there?) Kitchen well appointed and clean. Nice landscaping. Great stereo. Nice to be able to use the fitness room, too. Overall we love it, but your competition out there has a few amenities this home lacks. Namely, wifi and special rates for repeat guests. I'd prefer giving an "excellent" rating, but feel if you are taking 100% of the money, your guests should be 100% satisfied, that's all.
Response from the manager UPDATED RESPONSE - JAN 2014 Dear Motley, Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback on your experience in Jasmine Joy. We take great pride in trying to provide our guests with the best possible vacation on St. George Island. We encourage our guests to contact our office immediately when issues arise so that we may correct them while you enjoy your vacation. After researching the issues mentioned within our departments, we have had the carpets cleaned. Our homes see a lot of traffic during high season so this is something we try to stay on top of and it is cleaned regularly between guests. Our maintenance department has repaired the center atrium door and tightened the bolts on the stool. All screens have been inspected and the one you mentioned has been replaced. We have replaced the outdoor grill and removed the broken chair. We are still researching the best way to repair the standing water around the outdoor shower. We have had a lot of rain this Summer on the island and the ground is just saturated in places. Although our housekeeping department strives to make sure that your home is well cleaned and inspected before your arrival, unfortunately, at times during peak season they may miss something. You should always give us a call and we are happy to correct anything you may find. We appreciate your thoughts and suggestions on the amenities and décor of the home. We have passed those thoughts on to the homeowner. We do have many homes that participate in specials for repeat guests and those can be found on our website or by speaking with one of our vacation planners. Again, we apologize and hope that you will visit us again on the island! Cordially, Resort Vacation Properties of St. George Island UPDATE: January 2014 The owners have replaced the living room sofas, painted all decking, replaced screens on the living room porch and they have sanded and repainted the deck furniture. More to come! This home is truly a must see!
“As close to heaven as I can get!”
This was our second stay at "JJ". My brother's family join mine for a week of swimming, sunning, eating and laughing, and JJ is more than icing on that cake! Reservations could not be easier. And you can tell we love the home since we are repeat users.I like that JJ is not right there on the beach; I like that it is private. The pool, although a little small, is nice to sit by since it is screened in and surrounded by vegetation for privacy. We found the kitchen to be a little understocked for people who like to cook; a few more platters or large bowls would have been helpful, and the knives were not very sharp. Some of our party had to do a little work during the week; there was no wifi available which we did not realize although it is specified. Jj is large and comfortable with lots of porches and places to either get away or gather together. It was quiet, too, even with our 5 teens around. I would have enjoyed a guest book to leave our comments and to see where others have come from to enjoy JJ, and to thank the owners personally. A larger-screen flat monitor TV would be nice, too, as the kids enjoy watching movies in the evening. There was nothing better than getting up before the sun and strolling the beach; and I enjoyed getting my daily runs in along the foot/bike path in the Plantation. I can't wait to go back; we are already planning our 2013 Summer.
“Awesome beach getaway”
This was our sixth trip to St. George Island and this vacation home was the best for us thus far. The house is clean and modernly appointed with a screened outdoor pool. Ample screened porches provide relaxing outdoor seating. There are fantastic views of the Gulf of Mexico, which is only a few minutes walk from the door. The area is great for unspoiled coastlines and a laid back feel. Journeys, on the island, is a great place to book sight seeing trips around the island and along the mainland as well as rent kayaks for exploring the gulf. Check in and check out were a breeze, as usual, with Resort Vacations Properties. We highly recommend this property for a wonderful stay.
“Vacation in fun and sun”
This property was well liked by all family members, especially the screened pool.
A group of 5 people holding a leadership retreat stayed here. Everyone was from the Midwest except for the host who was from Tallahassee. We spent most of the time meeting, but enjoyed the view and took breaks on the beach. We wished there was salt and pepper as well as shampoo. I seems it would be pretty easy to supply that. That would have made a big difference. The bunk beds didn't work well for older folks--but I'm sure they are fine for families.
“Exactly what we expected and more!”
This house is well equipped to entertain, house and accommodate many age groups. We love to cook and found the kitchen well appointed and it felt like home. The plus was the 3 King beds which made our adult children and their spouses very happy. The walk to the beach was minimal and easy on the paved road or through the beach access to the rear of the property. Love love the screened porches! Would liked to have had access to the elevator for groceries and toddlers - the living quarters are on the top floor.The outdoor shower was great to clean up after the beach and keep the sand contained to outside. Pool is small but adequate and relaxing - it has a seating area in the deep end that is great for sitting in the water and talking. We will only use Resort Vacation Properties from now on. We have used others on St. George Island and encountered issues. Have to say RVP was by far the best company we have used with regard to reservations and accommodations. Can't wait to return!
Response from the manager Thank you for sharing your vacation rental feedback with us. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and found Jasmine Joy well equipped for your needs. With regards to the elevator, there is not an elevator in this home. It was originally designed to have one, but the shaft was converted into storage closets. Thank you for the kind words about our company. We appreciate your business & look forward to having you back as our guests again soon. Best Wishes, Resort Vacation Properties
“It was like being at home at the beach!”
We enjoyed Jasmine Joy so much that we wanted to return to it this summer, but it wasn't available the week that we were available. We enjoyed having a private pool, yet still being able to take a short walk to the beach. The house was very comfortable and cozy.
“Jasmine Joy Is absolute joy!”
Jasmine Joy is a dream vacation home. The owners are to be commended for creating such a warm and inviting home. The furnishings are top notch, yet comfy. My family and I were able to spend a week in this beautiful home. This was one of the best weeks of our lives. We were so relaxed. It was great to be able to wake up, open the blinds/windows, and look out over the gulf. Awesome! We will definitely be return renters!
