“Very good value”
Reviewed 21 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

This was our 5th trip to St. George Island and our first stay in "A Shore Thing." We chose this house based on the amount of space and the price. The house is large and airy and was a good fit for our family of 11. The bedrooms are large as well as the bathrooms. There are two master's on two different levels which provides privacy for the adults. The kitchen is very well equipped and contained everything we needed for family meals, even a garlic press!
The only problem we had was with the dryer vent being plugged up. We were unable to dry clothes for 5 of our 7 days in the house. Maintenance came 3 or 4 times before they finally climbed up on the roof and cleaned it out.
The location is pretty far from the beach (2 1/2 blocks) but we rented a golf cart to get there easily. Overall the house is really nice and a great value for a big family.

We appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback with us. We are pleased that you enjoyed a relaxing week on St. George Island & found A Shore Thing well suited to your needs. We are pleased to report that there have been no additional reports of problems with the refrigerator or the A/C since your visit. We apologize that some pet owners were not as conscientious as others. As you note, this is certainly not the “norm.” With regards to the mattresses, we often find that the comfort of mattresses is subjective. What may be comfortable for one person may be uncomfortable for the next. We appreciate your comments and have forwarded them to the homeowners for their review & consideration. Thank you for your patronage. We look forward to having you back as our guest again soon.
Cordially,
Resort Vacation Properties
