“Very nice beach rental for families”

This was our second visit to St. George Island renting through Resort Vacation Properties (we had to skip a year due to a tropical storm closing the island). This property is named Casablanca, which is a 4 bedroom 3.5 bath home across the road from the beach with a private pool. This is a very nice moderately-priced rental home that is well-appointed for a family beach vacation. We were two families of four with two small dogs. The home is just the right size for our group; but any more people would be a squeeze in the common areas. There is a master upstairs and an identical master down that is adjacent to the common areas, which could be a problem for early-to-bed or late-to-rise folks. One of the bedrooms has two bunks, one of which is in disrepair and quite dangerous so we told the kids to stay off of that bunk. The common area is an open floor plan (kitchen, dining, and living areas) with French doors leading to a nice screened-in porch. The furniture in the living area is very comfortable (even the big chairs that got knocked in another review), yet fell short for the size of our group, so the odd person out has no place to sit. All of the kitchen appliances work well except the dishwasher, which is loud and does not clean the dishes very well. A larger frying pan would be a huge plus to sauté the seafood that is available from the dude in a trailer across from the RVP office (it’s great and reasonably priced). The pool deck is large and there are ample chairs that can be moved about. The pool itself is a bit small but seemed to handle the kids well, or the adults, but not everyone; the bottom of the pool is nice and easy on the feet. The home is nicely furnished with decor complimenting the homeowner's favorite movie - Bogart even tells you the pool rules on the deck. The home is an easy walk across the road to the beach; only a 2-minute walk to the house to get more snacks and you're back out on the beach. We love the new RVP check-in process and the cypher lock makes securing the home easy coming and going. A few more bath towels would have been a plus. There are "swankier" choices on the island, but for a lot more money - Casablanca a good moderately priced choice on the island.

Thank you for sharing your vacation rental feedback with us. We are delighted that overall you enjoyed your stay, but apologize that raccoons interrupted the quiet enjoyment of your stay. Due to the natural & pristine environment on St. George Island, all sorts of wildlife flourish, including raccoons. They can be rascals sometimes. A trapper was sent out after your departure & no further issues have been reported at this time. Thank you for your continued patronage. We look forward to having you back as our guests again in 2011.
Sincerely, Resort Vacation Properties
