Our extended family has been coming to SGI for around 15 years now and we typically try and rent a different beach front home each time but decided to immediately re-rent this home because it satisfied all three families. The island bike path is now accessible to this home as it wasn't in the past and we feel much safer knowing that our young children aren’t having to ride on the main road anymore. Moreover, we all have pets and this was the first time we were able to bring them with us and they had a blast. The East End, where the home is located, has better beaches and fewer people and bugs. The only downside to our visit was that the refrigerator ice maker and individual ice maker were not working as well as one of the washing machines. Other than that, the perfect beach home for an extended family.

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?

Thank you for taking the time to respond to our request for feedback. We are pleased that you enjoyed your visit but apologize that you experienced some maintenance issues during your stay. All of our properties are inspected prior to guest arrival. From time to time problems do not arise until after a guest is actually in the home and regularly using those amenities. With regards to the hot water, a tankless water heater was malfunctioning and had to be replaced. We apologize for the inconvenience, but are pleased this situation was able to be rectified during your visit. Thank you for the feedback on the mattresses. We often find that comfort of beds is subjective. What’s comfortable for one person does not always prove comfortable for another. With regards to the internet, a new router was recently installed & no further issues have been reported. We apologize that you experienced trouble with some of the TVs. New remotes have recently been installed & programmed. We apologize that some pet owners are not as conscientious as others. In our county we have a leash law that requires “direct control” of a pet whether this is by actual leash or voice command. We have passed your comments about patrolling the beach on to the proper authorities. With regards to development on the island, the island has been fully platted, so there can be no more building other than the lots that have been platted. Thoughtful consideration was given when the island was platted. We also have height restrictions in place so that homes cannot be built over 3 stories. We are surprised that you stated that birds are scarce in this area. Our area is known for plentiful wildlife & excellent birding opportunities. We provide a birding list for our area on our website which lists over 200 bird species that can be viewed at various times of the year. We appreciate your thoughtful suggestions on what you’d like to see changed/added to the home and will be passing your comments on to the homeowners for their review & consideration. Thank you again for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We look forward to having you back as our guests again soon.
Cordially,
Resort Vacation Properties

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 Mysterio. We are delighted that you found the home so well suited to your family's needs. We apologize that there was some trouble with the elevator during your visit. Should any equipment malfunction during your stay we will make every effort to have it repaired as soon as possible. One of the challenges of living on a barrier island is that parts have to be ordered & repair companies have to travel a longer distance, so what may be routine at home can often be an adventure here. We value your patronage and look forward to having you as our guest again soon.
Sincerely, Resort Vacation Properties

Dear Runnermom,

We try to share with folks who have never visited St. George Island that the beaches are un-crowded, the shelling is fantastic and the dolphins run the shore everyday. You said it better than we ever could and we appreciate it. About the shark - Yikes! We don't get that feedback very often and we can imagine what an unwelcome surprise that must have been. Mysterio is a guest favorite and we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay there too. About the ants - we genuinely apologize for that experience. As you stated, we addressed this multiple times and we are happy to share that since your stay, we have monitored the situation and there has not had any additional reports. We thank you again for your generous feedback and we hope you will be back to visit us soon.
