Relaxing in Seattle

Review submitted: August 24, 2011   Date of arrival: June 19, 2011

Let me get my only complaint out of the way first - there was only one living space for all to gather. This only presented a problem when my 3 boys felt obligated to play X-Box from morning until the beach. Every room had a TV...but the only TV for everyone had the X-Box. If the X-Box could be moved to the BUNK room, that would work better...in my opinion. NOW FOR THE GOOD STUFF. The house was clean. The kitchen was very useful with tons of pots and pans of various sizes. We cooked 4 of our 7 evenings down there. The pool was exactly what we needed after hours at the beach. Some days we stayed at the pool longer than the beach. The walk to the beach was effortless...especially when we got to use the large beach cart. Being the 3rd house back from beachfront wasn't that big of a deal. And the savings was huge. The walk wasn't. You MUST bring a gazebo. It allowed for us to stay out in the sun for hours. The beach is so beautiful, with the pure white sand. When we arrived, for some reason the Gulf resembled the Atlantic with the waves. By the time we left, the Gulf had settled and there was virtually no wave noise and the water was so calm, that the dolphins swam with in feet of us multiple times. I even was lucky enough to see one jump completely out of the water! Just an amazing sight. The privacy of the plantation side is immediate. There is simply more beach than occupants on this side. If crowds are your thing - hit the beach directly in front of the St. George Island bridge. I absolutely loved my stay at "Sleepless". I will be back. The joint was perfect for my family of 5, my sister and her family of 4 and the grandparents. There really wasn't a detail overlooked. I could go on and on...more than I've already had. I absolutely will (and already have) recommend this to friends/family. This review is long - but I have put a lot of time in reading the reviews of every house I checked out. I'm not pulling punches here at all. Sleepless was perfect. The walk to the beach really was easy. The hardest part of the walk is what makes the beach hard for EVERYONE - the sand is so soft, it's a workout to walk through. But I'll take that any day over my grass or sidewalk. I checked out (from my daily grind) while down there. It's is so relaxing. It's perfect for all. I wish I was still there. Thanks for sharing your house with us!

Owners response: Thanks Ed for the positive comments. We try very hard to keep Sleepless perfect for all guests. Our kids also love the XBox. We just returned from Sleepless, we added a couple of new bikes and new pots/pans, along with a couple of new chairs for living room. SGI and especially The Plantation is a very family oriented, restful place to take a true vacation.

We just returned from our week on SGI. The staff at the Property Management Co were kind and professional. Sleepless in Seattle is hands down the best house we've rented! We loved the views from every window, the kitchen was great for our family who loves to cook and eat together, the bikes were used frequently. On our couple pretty days, we loved the poolside table for dining and loved having the poolside "facilities" also. Everything was fantastic. Thanks again for sharing your beautiful home.

We're back for a third year in a row, thanks for sharing your home with us. With all the children, it's a great bedroom setup. Short walk to the beach & great pool to play in. We will return for a fourth year in the summer of 2010. 6/28-7/05/2009
