The sidewalks in the neighborhood offer a great opportunity to jog, bike, roller blade, or walk. The island is also a great place to catch up on your fishing, either from a boat or the coast.

Perfect family beach vacay    Oct 15, 2023

review star

We enjoyed our family beach vacation immensely! The location was perfect - close to the beach and the bike path. Everyone had their own space and the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed to prepare meals at the house. The beach wagon was a big hit to carry our chairs back and forth to the beach, and the grill was perfect for a night of grilling at the house! We made many great family memories and hope to visit again!

Well-equipped extremely well-located beach home!    Apr 17, 2023

review star

We had a wonderful stay at this home. It is a basic beach house as far as the decor and furniture, but had everything we needed. Communication with the owners was fast and easy. We particularly enjoyed all of the beach gear, the wagon, the highchair and pack 'n' play for the baby. The location is wonderful, an easy walk to the beach and very quiet and great for relaxing. We really loved the view (which is the first picture in the listing, not to be confused with the house itself). There are couple of small things that need attention but overall it was an awesome stay especially for Spring Break! Note- the no-see-um bugs were really bad at this time of the year (April) on the beach so be prepared!

My husband and I had a wonderful time at The Palms. Greg and Vieta were responsive to our needs. When the grill didn’t work, they sent a new one right away. Same with the coffee maker! The property was beautiful. We had several guests come to visit and all enjoyed their time there. While it felt remote, it was easy to get in and out of and fun to use as a base to explore the area.

​Vacation at The Palms    Nov 28, 2022

review star

We were a party of 4, senior citizen friends. We found the house to be very clean, and quite comfortable. Our only issue was trying to figure out how to access the t.v. It would be helpful to have a laminated card with detailed instructions on how to know which remote to use and when to use it. There appeared to be a missing cord to one of the down stairs t.v. So there was no access to that t.v. Other then that the stay was very pleasant, the owner easily accessible, location was perfect and we enjoyed our stay.

Annual family beach trip    Aug 22, 2022

review star

We had a really nice stay in this home with our family and fur members during the last week of July. The spiral staircase was a challenge for the dogs but after a couple does they were able to manage. Greg was very helpful and responded quickly to any questions/concerns. The home was very comfortable and it provided what we needed. I would not hesitate to rent again.

Great Family Vacation, great location. Love SGI    May 02, 2022

review star

The experience was overall great. The property owners were very easy to work with. The house had everything we needed. The home could use some updates and a few fixes. The cleaning crew could spend a little more time in the home, paying attention to deep clean places such as vents (very dusty) maybe air filters need to be changed? Base boards, cupboards. Tack strips between the bedroom and bathrooms were visible and needs to be fixed. After stepping on many times, we put towels over them. Overall the home was great! Don’t want to change the rating because they are minor, but every little bit helps. 😄 Great location, this was our first time in the plantation. One pool was open, unheated, easy walk to the beach. Love SGI have been coming down for several years now. Heads up, no-see-ums are bad in April.

Family time    Aug 07, 2019

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Palms! The owners were very responsive and accommodating. We were able to bring our fur babies, our children were able to come and go and the weather was beautiful. There was a telescope on the premises and we enjoyed stargazing along with the beach, fishing, and shopping. We had all of the cooking utensils we needed and enjoyed cooking as well as some local restaurants. We were happy to have some relaxing family time before school starts.

The Palms is a beautiful house in a great location with a short walk to the uncrowded beach. Enough space for our family and kids enjoyed the spiral staircase. We enjoyed the bikes, chairs and wagon from the shed. Thankful we didn't have to lug those from home! Overall the house is really nice, well kept and clean. Ideal location on an amazing island. Thank you-

We loved st George, the location to the beach was nice. The house was not very clean when we got there so we spent most of our Saturday cleaning. That was a little disappointing. Other than that, it was nice.

Beautiful and relaxing    Feb 21, 2019

review star

This was a beautiful property that provided us a much needed vacation. The home was beautiful, well kept, clean and stocked with all essentials needed in the kitchen. The owners were very responsive to any questions we had and easy to get in touch with.

We spent the time taking multiple trips to the beach (just a short walk away) or relaxing and playing board games on the top floor overlooking the water. We will definitely be returning in the future.

Great house, great location, great vacation.    Feb 17, 2019

review star

This was our third visit to The Palms in the last few years, and we have already made our plans to come back again in October.

We had some concerns coming in December, soon after Hurricane Michael has hit Florida Panhandle. Luckily, St. George Island had minimal damage, and The Palms vacation house weathered it fine. Our reservation was not cancelled, and our trip did happen as planned. The owners have provided us with pictures and relevant updates about the situation on the island around that time.

The floor plan at The Palms works very well for us. It is much better than at many other houses. That is one of the reasons we like coming back to The Palms when we can. We specially like upstairs living/dining areas with nice view of the Gulf. The screen porch on the Bay side of the house is perfect in the evenings. They recently renovated, and now have new vinyl floors on their second floor.

As during our previous visits, the house was clean and ready when we arrived. Their shed outside got few additions, but it basically has bikes, beach chairs and toys that we used during our stay.

Great house, great location, wonderful owners - We love our time at The Palms.

Between good and excellent    Jul 05, 2018

Only problem of concern was the fact there was no sleeper sofa as advertised! There were 9 of us and we had counted on that sofa! And yes there was a blow up mattress by it would deflate within an hour or two leaving someone literally on the floor! Not good! The kitchen was well stocked with utensils etc. and the beds were comfortable! Didn’t like having to drive to swimming pool! That was a little inconvenient! It was a beautiful area and the pool and beach was great! Loved the privacy! Overall we enjoyed our stay!

Perfect spot for a young family    Apr 22, 2018

review star

My wife, 2 year old daughter and our dog were traveling to St. George Island for a week of relaxation and beach fun. We spent several hours researching potential beach houses to rent for our vacation and couldn't be happier with our choice. The Palms Retreat property is in a great spot for a reasonable price. Tucked away towards the east end of the island, there is very little traffic, exceptional views (ocean, night-sky, nature), easy access to the beach and a lot of privacy to do your own thing. The house comes stocked with all of the essentials that you need to have a memorable beach vacation, while allowing a young family to still have a sense of "normal / routine" that is needed when traveling with little children and a dog. It is clear that the owners of the property, Greg and Vieta take good care of the property and care about the satisfaction and enjoyment of their guests. When it was time to go, it was hard to leave as we really enjoyed ourselves. We will hopefully return soon.

The Palms--A Great Choice for a Stay at St. George    Sep 22, 2017

review star

The Palms was comfortable and well-stocked with all the essentials. The house has three nicely furnished outside porches, including one screened in porch. All the rooms and the screened-in porch had ceiling fans. The owners provided bicycles--two were brand new--and a wagon to haul our stuff to the beach. They even included a bag a new beach toys for our one-year-old. We were very impressed. We have stayed on St. George many times over the years, but the Palms was definitely the best deal money-wise that we've ever gotten. We highly recommend this house. If you like being fairly close to Sykes' Cut, don't mind a short walk to the beach, and want a reasonably priced house, this is the place to stay!

This house was great! 4 bedrooms - with 2 baths down stairs and another big bathroom upstairs!! The architecture is really cool! I loved the location. I was thrilled that there were chairs, umbrellas and a wagon to use - this made life so much easier! Plus you have the beach and two pools!! The kitchen was fully equipped and the telescope was an added bonus! The owners were fabulous to work with! We will return!
