“A Writer's Paradise - walk to the beach to clear the cobwebs and bust the blocks!”
Reviewed 30 December 2011 for a stay in November 2011

I have hosted the St. George Island Writers' Retreat at Abbeyfeal for four years, and two years at other sites. Abbeyfeale is perfect for us. With groups of 8 to 12 writers (including our mentor, novelist Adrian Fogelin) who want to spend time together in workshop and feedback sessions, but who also need quiet space where they can get off by themselves to write, this house works well. There are two indoor living spaces, a large dining table and two fabulous porches just steps from anywhere in the house. The kitchen is spacious and well laid-out, convenient for group meal preparation for a large group. When we need to work off a hearty meal of combat writers' block, the beach is a short hike down the boardwalk, and in fall we've enjoyed having the surf and sand almost to ourselves in this quiet gated community. A bike trail runs nearby for any who want additional exercise, and a private screened pool is on the property. This is one fine spot.

Dear Biggedjr,

Thank you for taking the time to provide us feedback about Abbeyfeale. We really appreciate the information you've provided about the maintenance issues as we did not have a report of them on file. Upon receipt of your review, we have taken the following steps: 1. The bedroom carpets will be cleaned this weekend and we are consulting with our inspectors to find out why this wasn't reported by them. 2. A new ping-pong table arrived this week so the other is being removed. 3. We have opened a work order on the problem with the stove. 4. We've also opened a work order on the water pressure because it sounds like that's the problem with the washer and the toilets. 5. Spoons will also be delivered to the house this week. Again, we really appreciate your willingness to report these issues and we thank you so very much for the kind words about Abbeyfeale, Resort Vacation Properties and our staff. We hope to see you again soon.
