Fantastic Family Fun!    Jan 13, 2024

review star

The house was perfect for our family of 9. Everyone had lots of space, and you can’t get any closer to the beach. The views from inside were fantastic too. The pool was a great place to cool down in the afternoon, and it was a lovely area to enjoy a meal together as well. We all agreed this was our favorite by far!

This property looked amazing in the pictures, but upon arrival, was even better in person. Beautiful, clean, amd spacing. The owners were amazing and attentive as well. Great communication and they pay attention to all of the little details that make a vacation stay special. The location is right on the beach and the house comes fully equipped. The in ground pool was magnificent and when they warmed it up it was a gamechanger. We had a party of 4 adults and 2 kids, but this place could comfortably house 12. If you stay here you will not regret it. We would highly recommend this property and will be looking to stay here again the next time we come to SGI.

We visited SGI to Breathe Easy for our 2023 Family Vacation. Ages ranged from 13-88. We were a party of 8. Breathe Easy exceeded our expectations from day one. The house was huge, plenty of space to spread out and not feel on top of each other. Kitchen was one of the best stocked kitchens I've ever seen from spices to plate wear and untensils. The view from the back porch and side porch are breathe taking. We watched the beautiful sunrise every morning as well as watching dolphins 10ft from the shore playing everyday!! They have plenty of beach chairs, beach toys, and towels you dont have to bring any of that with you. The owners Bob and Sharon were amazing and very punctual to any of our needs. We are already planning our trip back. If you want a slice of heaven and a beautiful beach house Breathe Easy is your pick! 5⭐️'s across the board!!!

Beautiful property with everything you could need for a week at the beach. Large pool with lots of seating and privacy. Nice decks overlooking the ocean for your daily dolphin viewing. Plenty of room for everybody and sitting spaces on both levels. Kitchen has everything you could need and then more. Owners are amazing and even left little surprises for us for a warm welcome! Sharon was very quick and responsive to all questions. Amazing beach front property!

Wow the accommodations of this beautiful beach was awesome! The location to the beach was perfect. After hours at the beach we all enjoyed swimming and relaxing around the pool. And the porch was our favorite spot to gather. The home is so spacious for a crowd. The only thing that would have made the stay better was if we could have stayed longer. This was our first visit to St. George island and we fell in love. Sharon & Ben were so accommodating. The washer went out before we got there but they had a new one installed before we arrived. The hot water heater element went out & it was repaired the next morning. Ben & Sharon were very accommodating. They left goodies for all of us that we all enjoyed very much. We really enjoyed our stay in their piece of paradise.

Fantastic    Jun 17, 2023

The house was better than we expected. It had everything we needed for the week including beach chairs, towels, beach toys, umbrellas and boogie boards. The pool was great for when the kids were over the sand. The kitchen was well stocked. Beds were comfortable. The location was perfect. Zero crowds on the beach. We rented a golf cart which worked perfect on the island. Communication was better than I could have imagined. We especially loved the extra treats for us and the kids. We will definitely stay here again.

Fantastic Vacation    Jun 10, 2023

review star

We stayed at “Breathe Easy” with our family and had a fabulous week. The house had an amazing view of the beach and water from both levels. The kitchen was fully stocked, including a croc pot, which we used. We loved long walks on the beach and enjoyed the close proximity to the water. We also enjoyed the pool and floats to relax. The house is large enough for everyone to have their own space. It was clean and comfortable. The gas grill was perfect for gilling burgers, hot dogs, chicken, and even pork tenderloin. The house is centrally located on the island which made shopping at Piggly Wiggly very convenient (only 3 minutes away). Ben and Sharon were the perfect hosts and easily accessible to answer any of our questions. We would definitely recommend this property for your family beach vacation.

Very Enjoyable Stay    Mar 11, 2023

Our family of 11 had a great visit this past spring break. The place was very spacious and with all the space everyone had their own area, especially for the teens. Wonderful views and great spot right on the beach. The heated pool was a very nice perk since a few days were on the chilly side! Property owners were wonderful to work with and even left a box of goodies for us for at arrival. We look forward to another visit next year, would definitely not hesitate to rent again. Thank you so much Sharon and Ben for an amazing week!
