About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, 8 Sleeps

Spacious, immaculate 3BR/2-1/2 bath home across from beach. This home has a large living room with hardwood floors, a separate den, and a great room which has the kitchen, dining room and a sun porch. Two of the bedrooms have hardwood floors. The master suite has carpet. The bedrooms are spacious, and one of the bedrooms has 2 double beds. The other two bedrooms each have a queen bed. It comfortably sleeps 8 people on the beds. There is a queen sofa and a loveseat in the den. The living room has a queen sofa and a number of chairs, and the sun porch has a sofa and chairs. The kitchen was renovated March 2013 with new dishwasher, counter tops, cabinets and paint. The picture shown is not updated yet. Everything is very clean and comfortable. The living room and two of the bedroom walls are beautiful solid heart pine wood.

There is a large deck facing the beach with lounge chairs. The paved bike path is right out the back door. Downstairs there is a nice park grill and picnic table, and also chairs and a large swing. There is an enclosed shower with hot and cold water conveniently located by the downstairs bathroom. This is a great feature, especially with children. There is a double fish cleaning sink on the east side of the house. We own the adjoining lot which is vacant so you have plenty of privacy.

We are eight blocks down from the entrance to the island, and this puts you located near all restaurants and shopping. The beautiful St. George Island State Park is only about three miles from us.

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved how clean and homey the house was. Margie was very easy to work with and very hospitable. We had room to spread out and everything was very clean. Also very close to the beach. We are already planning our next trip. I wound definitely recommend this home to friends and family.

excellent for young family

  • 5 of 5

My wife, 2 year-old and I stayed here for a few days over Mother's day weekend. It was a great house for our family and is a great location. It literally is a minute walk to the beach. Everything was clean and very comfortable. I would definitely recommend staying here especially with young children.

Great first trip to the island

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a great place to spend a week with our family. Our daughters 13 & 15 took a friend a piece. We enjoyed the house which was clean, and made us feel at home. The girls enjoyed watching movies in the front room on a rainy day and sitting on the deck at night in between trips to the beach at night to watch the crabs. We also enjoyed sitting on the deck listening to the ocean. To not be directly on the beach, this house couldn't be on a better location. A short walk thru a path and cross the road to a public beach access walkway 2-3 minutes. We very much enjoyed our stay at Sonny's Place and hope to return again. The owner was very easy to work with.

Owner's Response: We clean our house ourselves so we know that stove, fridge, fans, floors and furniture are clean. Since we have a den, living room and great room (kitchen, dining and sunporch) there is lots of room to spread out instead of everyone having to be in one great room. We feel the large deck with lounge chairs and the downstairs area with swing, picnic table and chairs also add to the comfort of the house. The downstairs bathroom by the enclosed outside shower has been a real plus. We so much appreciate people using our house and are glad that they can enjoy it as much as our family does. We strive to keep everything cleaned, painted and updated. We appreciate any comments or suggestions.

A great summer home

  • 5 of 5

My kids and I spent 4 days at this house which felt more like a home. It was very spacious, clean and organized. The back room, with the view, was my favorite space to relax. The downstairs laundry and shower were well used by us. They were such a plus! I enjoyed sitting on the back deck watching and listening to the waves. So relaxing!! We plan on going back. Thanks Margie for being so generous in sharing your nice home with us. It was a pleasure dealing with you.

Sonny's Place Vacation Stay

  • 4 of 5

Owner was solicitous about vacation environment and easy to work with. I appreciated the fee being all inclusive with no hidden costs. House is one level, built on stilts; access stairs could be difficult for some. It has lots of spreading out room for larger groups, with plenty of comfortable chairs/sofas. It was clean enough, but a few items need repair. The kitchen/eating area has plenty of space and shelves, with more than enough dishes and utensils, but the area could stand de-cluttering to provide more space for renters' items. There is no dishwasher, so be prepared to wash dishes by hand. Plenty of outdoor furniture on back deck for sun worshipers. Lots of space underneath house available for storing outdoor equipment which is complemented by the outdoor shower, bathroom and large laundry room down there. The adjoining sink and fish cleaning area is another plus. The beach is a short walk (3+ minutes) away, so folks with lots of paraphenalia to tote should consider bringing some sort of carryall for transporting them. It was a good vacation, overall, facilitated by the house and its amenities.
