Very Good

“Wonderful place to stay!”

Reviewed 31 Dec 2012

I am sitting on the deck at Playin' Hooky right now enjoying our last day of a 9 night stay over Christmas and New Year's Eve. Never having been to SGI before, we didn't really know what to expect. We just knew that we'd be out of the Illinois weather. What a great trip. The house is perfect. As others have said, it is perfect for dogs and more than a few people. It is one of only a few houses on the island (that I was able to find) that have a fenced in yard accessible directly from the house for dogs. The pictures definitely do not do it justice- it is much bigger than the pictures make it look. Very clean and stocked with everything you need. Great beach access. Would absolutely come again and hope that someday we will!

“Beautiful Vacation”

Reviewed 8 Oct 2012

As always st. George Is. did not disappoint. we love Play'in Hooky. It has everything we need and I love the privacy. I appreciate how the property is kept up. Never shows wear and tear even though it must be used a lot. One caveat: like most beach properties the house is raised off the ground. I would not recommend this house for someone with mobility issues because of the stairs.

“Great House”

Reviewed 16 Apr 2012

The house exceeded expectations. The pictures do not do the property justice. The outside space was awesome, great for dogs! Inside was spacious and worked well for two families. We will definitely rent this property again.

We went down to St. George, which is our favorite place to go, for my daughter's birthday. We invited some family to come join us down at the island. I loved this house beacuse it was so nice and everthing just flowed very good, but also, it is pet friendly and we could carry our dogs and they loved it also. The yard was made for dogs and we could let them out and know they would be safe. I would recommend this house to anyone who has pets and needs a lot of room. The way it is designed, it is almost like 2 houses when you close off the the double doors, it is just wonderful. It is across the street from the beach, but there is a path right across the street when you go out of the gate at Playin' Hooky.

“Great experience, comfortable, convenient home with great view.”

My group of friends really enjoyed the home. It is very large with privacy and we loved the deck and the pool and patio.

“Playin' Hooky is our favorite house on St. George Island!”

Reviewed 3 Jun 2010

Playin' Hooky is the perfect house for our beach vacations. We love bringing our dogs and the fact that the entire property is fenced makes it perfect for the dogs. The shaded area under the house by the pool is perfect for those of us who can't be out in the sun all of the time. We will continue to rent this property each year!

Playin' Hooky has it all- plenty of room, pool, fenced in yard (Great if you have a pet), close to beach and bike trail. We have stayed at several locations looking for the perfect spot. We found such a home in Playin' Hooky. 2010 will be our second stay and we have made it a longer stay just because it is perfect!

“Had Great Time!”

Reviewed 18 Jun 2009

We liked Playin Hooky better than all the other houses we had stayed at in the past. The location and layout of the house was perfect for our family. The only issue I had was that the deck had nails that need to be nailed down and one or two of the kids got splinters in their hands/feet. I would rent this house again. Can't wait until we can return to the island and Playin Hooky again.

“Great for family pets”

Reviewed 27 Jan 2009

We enjoyed our stay over the 4th of July. The property is steps from the beach, Which was great not having to haul beach stuff too far. It was great for our pets you can fence them in different ways.The pictures do not do the property justice. The grounds are nice for the whole family kinda rustic.We cant wait to go again.

“An overall wonderful time”
