“Perfect Setting”
Reviewed 27 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

We were there with a group to see the Rock By The Sea Music Festival this year. It was our first time there and the setting on the Gulf was great! There were four couples and we had plenty of room. Three bedrooms are en suites and one twin bedroom had a bathroom immediately outside the door. That bedroom was a bit small. The great room included a well stocked kitchen, dining table, and living room. The house had a wrap around porch with great views and a roof area to sit. The porch has a table and chairs overlooking the Gulf and a grill downstairs from the living space. There is also a handy washer and dryer right next to the car port area to shelter your cars from the sun. It was very easy to walk to Harry A's, the music venue. You do need to load up on groceries and personal needs to get a better selection before getting on the island, limited shopping there. It would have been nice to have more towels provided. The house was not ready when some guests arrived. Cleaning staff had to come and work on it before we could all use it. The walk down to the beach was close and handy, and not very crowded.

Thanks for the review and glad to hear you enjoyed Rock By The Sea - it's a wonderful event. And glad you enjoyed Salty Dawg - it's a favorite of ours, well designed and stocked as you noted. We'd have been happy to bring an extra set of towels - we always provide a towel and washcloth for every guest in the home, but an extra set is available on request from our 24-7 On-Call guest services line, as noted in our welcome message. And we hope the housekeeping wasn't a real inconvenience. We make every effort to have homes ready for the check-in period 4:00-6:00 pm, but occasionally the unexpected issue delays us a bit. And of course, sometimes eager visitors arrive a little early, before we've had the chance to finish! ;)
The grocery store on the Island has recently been bought and the new management is bringing substantial improvements. You'll be pleasantly surprised next time, we think. Hope to see you soon!

The house was large, spacious, and comfortable with a wonderful view. It's a great location. The beach is very clean. The house is directly on the beach with a great
porch. You can also sit on top of the roof at night and enjoy the stars. There was plenty of cookware and dishes for our large group.
My only complaint was the amount of towels given to us. The towels were thin and
we had 1 towel per person for 5 nights. There is a washer and dryer available which we used frequently.

Dear Jerry,

We appreciate your feedback about the decision to exclude Salty Dawg from our specials program. Salty Dawg is our most affordable beachfront 4 bedroom/4 bath home so it was determined that the advertised rental rate compensates for the exception. It is stylish, well-maintained and the views from the covered porch are, without a doubt, some of the finest on St. George Island. We hope you will reconsider and choose Salty Dawg again for its great value.

Cordially,
Resort Vacation Properties
