Relaxing beautiful stay at Boardwalk

Owner was great to work with ! Boardwalk was exactly as pictured . The house was very clean and we had everything we needed . Location was very convenient to shops, playground and restaurants ! Beds were very comfortable ! Loved the short walk out to beach and very convenient to run back inside if you forgot or need something from the house ! We loved our first visit to SGI and will be returning next summer !

Just as advertised

This property was just as advertised. Nothing was over-promised or lacking from the description. What was described online is what we got when we showed up. We had a fantastic time. The convenient access to the beach and the view was the best feature.

Fun fabulous house in perfect location!!!

We just returned from a week at The Boardwalk. It was our first time visiting St George Island. I hate to let the secret out....but this place is AMAZING!! We loved the fun decor of The Boardwalk. Decorated very nice. Unit was very clean. We have 4 kids so there was a great amount of space for 6 of us. Very helpful to have 3 full bathrooms. We have previously stayed in condos on the upper coast and thoroughly enjoyed The Boardwalk and the very quick walk to the beach and back to the house. At condos it was always a time consuming production to load up coolers, beach toys etc to go the beach-at The Boardwalk we could just run back whenever we needed (helpful for cocktail refills!!) :-). And finally the location on SGI was perfect! We didn't drive our van the entire week! Everything was within walking distance and we enjoyed our nightly walks to dinner exploring the island. There are also two ice cream shops right across the way and an Italian ice a quick walk away. SGI was the perfect way to experience "island life" right here in the states! It is a relaxed atmosphere with very little commercialization. Beautiful starry nights can be seen since there are no high rises. We spent the days playing in the ocean, watching dolphins (my favorite!) and at night had fun seeing the crabs run the beach. Thank you SGI and The Boardwalk for the incredible week....already looking forward to returning!!

Carefree, clean, close, & quiet

Our family unwound this week... beautiful views made the cooler weather "no worries"...loved the home with well supplied kitchen/laundry areas and comfortable-height counters (lots of tall ones in our family) & main rooms made for fun interaction! We're hooked on St George Island and totally enjoyed the Boardwalk!

Another great stay!

This was our third or fourth time staying here and it was great as usual. With two grand kids, it's great to be so close to the beach, and right next door to a small playground and a couple of stores. It's right down from public parking, so expect some spillover from there onto the beach in front on weekends, but otherwise, during our mid-May stay, it was quiet and uncrowded.

Best vacation ever!!!

Just returned from our first vacation on SGI! Let me just say it was our best vacation ever!!! We stayed a week at Boardwalk and loved it. House was in excellent location. Could walk to restaurants and shops. Best of all, right on beach!! Owner was easy to work with and always responded to any questions we had quickly. Definitely hope to visit area again. Everyone on island was so nice and helpful. We loved the fresh market and shopped there often. Little place that had Italian ice was great!!! The girl that works there is super!!! Lots of pet friendly places which was a big plus for us as we travel with our little dog. Looking forward to going back.

Lovely home, great location, wonderful beach.

Our first time to St George Island and it was wonderful. The little house had everything we needed and plenty of space when we were in it. Fantastic location! 160 steps from the water, taking chairs and coolers out in the morning and back at night was no problem. Coffee on the deck in the morning watching the Gulf wake up was amazing. Location to the little town was perfect. We parked our vehicle when we arrive and didn’t get in it again til we left. Well, we did drive it across the bay to eat at this local restaurant called the Rusty Pelican, if you have time it’s worth the drive. Other than that, we walked everywhere, Island grocery, piggly wiggly express, Blue Parrot, Harry A’s, BJ’s Pizza, you name it we walked there. Recommend all of them. First one in line for Donuts one morning ( opens at 7:30 and they will run out) and the kids walked to an Ice cream spot one evening, Perfect location. We were there over the 4th of July and the fire works were fantastic, shot them off right on the beach and we just sat on the beach. They had a parade during the day but not your typical parade. It was as a huge water fight!! Spectators spraying floats, float riders spraying back, it was awesome, so much fun. Started taking beach vaca’s 5 years ago and this spot at St George Island tops the list. Everything you need to have the perfect beach get away. We will definitely return some day.

We absolutely loved it!!!

The house was beautiful and the perfect location!! You can walk everywhere u need to or want to on the island. We rented a golf cart though which worked out perfectly! Would definitely stay here again!!! No complaints at all, we tried to think of something to point out that wasn’t “up to par” but we honestly couldn’t come up with anything!! The owner was very easy to deal with too! He even called to check on us and be sure everything was ok!!

Great House, Great Owner

It was less than 2 weeks after Hurricane Michael, and the Ratcliff’s went out of their way to have the house ready for us so we didn’t have to cancel our vacation. Boardwalk is very comfortable and so convenient to everything. We walked to all the shops, restaurants and trails. The owners were kind enough to let us know we could contact them anytime if we needed anything, which we didn’t. Can’t thank you enough for sharing your lovely home.

Great location right on the beach

Can not beat the location. Literally steps to the sand and beach that isn’t crowded. Loved St. George. None of the crazy hustle and bustle of other beaches. Great for kids and pets. Boardwalk was great. Bright and sunny with two balconies to relax and enjoy. Reggie was so friendly and super responsive with any needs. I look forward to staying again!!!!

Great house, great location, great views

We loved our stay at Boardwalk! Everything was as described and we had no issues with our stay. My favorite part of the trip was enjoying my morning coffee on the deck with a perfect view of the water. The house is in easy walking distance of pretty much everywhere you might need to go on the island.

Great property

Property was exactly as advertised. We no problems with it at all . You can’t beat the location and it worked out well for our family . The owner communicated very well and even called to check on every and to see if he needed to have anything taken care of . We go here to enjoy the beach and island we could pretty much walk to anything we wanted from this property.

Great location - Near everything and beach is closer than it looks...

My husband and I stayed here with our dog for the week of Labor Day. The house was great and everything we expected. All the homes around that didn't get hit hard with the hurricane last October have a few missing shingles or little pieces of damage, but most in this section seemed to fare pretty well including Boardwalk. We got there Saturday and did not get back in our car until we rode into Apalach on Wednesday. We walked everywhere and nothing was more than half a mile away. If we didn't want to explore the other towns, we wouldn't have gotten back in our car once. The walkway down to the beach is deceiving. It is a much SHORTER walk than it looks. After the holiday, the beach cleared out and we felt like it was all ours. Great spot and easy to reach. Lots of marine wildlife....we loved watching the little crabs on the shore in afternoons before sunset. We hope to come again with friends!

Boardwalk Spring Break 2020

Boardwalk was the perfect size for us. The walk to the beach was not as long as it looks in some of the pictures. We enjoyed staying there and being within walking distance to the souvenir stores, groceries, lighthouse etc. Owner was easily accessible and made sure all was well with our stay.

Awesome Vacation

This property is centrally located in walking distance to all the best spots on the Island. Great views of the beach from the unit and it's decks. Nicely decorated with tile floors throughout.
Stayed: 07/11/2020

Location, Location, Location

Property couldn't have been better situation. Being near the center of the town, we parked the car and walked to restaurants, shops (the few the island has), groceries and places of interest.

Direct beach access was a huge factor in renting and wow, it sure was nice to walk out of the house, down the boardwalk and have a fantastic beach right there to enjoy.

Layout affords great views from the middle floor of breach, though the downstairs master also has a very nice view. Kitchen was well stocked. Could use some additional cookware such as a broiling pan for the oven, a few more bread knives, and a baking sheet. Minor things which in no way impacted our overall stay.

Owner was easy to contact and responsive to questions

Best location to enjoy the island.

Great place to crash after a day at the beach, The AC and fans kept it cool during the 80 degree weather and it is located perfectly for a quick walk to the food, night life and of course step out on to the beach. It has all you need for a great visit and fun with the family.

Perfect Beach Oceanfront Vacation

Loved this place and the Island. Location is literally on the beach! Short walk to local restaurants and shops. Peaceful place with plenty of room for everyone. Beds very comfortable. Bring your own beach towels, chairs and umbrellas or just buy some across the street at the gift shop like we did. Owner very responsive. Highly recommend!

Beach front paradise

Boardwalk is fabulous! Right on the beach. We enjoyed sitting on the deck and watching the Laughing Gulls and pelicans, and of course the surf. At night, you can see so many stars! The house is in a perfect location, close to restaurants and grocery stores. The kitchen and living room are on one floor, bedrooms down, and loft up. Lots of stairclimbing! But it’s so wonderful, we didn’t care!

Gorgeous views

We had a lovely time at Boardwalk. The views are spectacular and I savored cooking while looking out at the gulf coast. Reggie was fantastic and walked us through the whole process. The property is spacious and our toddler loved the nearby playground and ice cream from across the street. Location couldn’t be better, on the beach but also in the center of town. We had such a great experience!

Reconnection trip with friends

Such a lovely trip! The house was great for two couples. Enough privacy and nice common areas. The Monopoly themed house was fun- we loved the whimsical decorations! Reggie was great about keeping us informed and we took some restaurant suggestions. The location was perfect for beach and stargazing. We would certainly stay at Boardwalk again!

Advance your vacation to The Boardwalk

House is very close to the city center with most shopping and restaurants within walking distance. Well stocked kitchen and comfortable beds. There are lots of stairs to get in and around the house. Not an issue of you are able, just something to note if traveling with people with limited mobility.

Everything from the house to the beach was perfect. The house was clean and had everything we needed to feel like we were at home but all the fun of a vacation too. We definitely will be back! The owner checked in via text to make sure we were happy and I really appreciated that! The beach was amazing with the dolphins and butterflies! Perfect place to bring your family and friends! The decor was fun too! You can tell they care about their property and are great hosts!

Great Stay

Boardwalk is wonderful house. We’ve stayed at several of cottages over the years and I would rate this one at the top. It was neat and clean and everything worked (unlike a few of the other cottages). Reggie was very responsive when I had questions prior to booking. Would definitely stay here again.
