I have rented this home before and once again I was very happy with it. The house is a short walk to the beach (maybe 5 minutes). The fact that there is an outside shower is very helpful when getting back from the beach. The kitchen is well equiped with cooking items. I cooked all meals here for the entire week and didn't need anything beside my crock pot and rice steamer. I look forward to another trip back and it will be right here at The Wahoo!

I highly recommend The Wahoo. The house was well-stocked, spacious, and clean. And as promised, it is located in a quiet residential part of the island. All we could hear from the house were birds. Finally, the owner was professional and communicated promptly. Thanks to The Wahoo and its owner, my family and I had a lovely vacation.

Tim, what a beautiful time we had staying in your home. I arrived after dark and the following morning was so excited to look off the back deck to the beauty that is there. It's a very comfortable place to stay. If you should make internet available, we would like to visit again next year. Thanks so much for being so congenial and easy to work with!

My wife & I stayed at the Wahoo for the week after Christmas. Had a great time & felt right at home. Very convenient to town center. The house is well furnished & just as advertised. We will definitely be back. Thanks Tim!

The St George Island and Apalachicola Bay region is the best part of Florida. The beautiful beaches, protected bays and rivers, charming historical waterfront towns, along with fewer people and the laid back southern hospitality are why my wife and I keep coming back. After staying at the Wahoo we may never go anywere else. If we had a second home, we would model it after the Wahoo. Great job Tim. Thanks

This was our first time renting a house on a vacation, so we're newbies. I didn't know what to expect.
The biggest thing that I can say is that I wish I was still there... we simply didn't want to leave. The house is wonderful and spacious. Neighbors were friendly, the beaches are delightful.
The beds are comfy, the back porch is shaded and cool. It's an easy walk with the stroller to the beach with the kids. The island is so safe, I didn't lock up my bikes or anything. The location is a bit off of the main so you don't have any spectacular views, but a short 2 block walk will get them for you. And on the plus, the privacy was excellent.
I highly recommend it. The owner was very helpful and all went very, very well.
Thanks Tim! We really, really hope we get to do it again soon!

This place was perfect for my families vacation! The place looked just like the pictures, it was clean, and very welcoming. Tim was great to work with! Very responsive with emailing back and forth and explaining where and how to get into the house. The beach was 4 blocks away so it was very convenient to get there by walking. I was very pleased with the Tim, the property, etc. If you ever get a chance to go to St George Island check out this place, you won't regret it!

wonderful little house for our quick stay for a friends wedding. Nice and quiet, there was plenty of space to relax. We used the fully stocked kitchen to make a low country boil. We had a wonderful time!

Tim is the consummate proprietor: responding quickly to inquiries, answering a bazillion questions, resolving an HVAC problem for us as expediently as possible while staying in touch by phone as well. (I must mention, too, just how professional and courteous the workers were.) The house is well appointed, comfortably decorated, and clean. We've stayed at many, many places over the 30 years we've been coming to SGI, but we're grateful to have found such a fabulous place and a great owner to work with. We hope we will be staying here whenever possible in the future!

This is our first time to SGI, incredible island and fabulous home. We brought our bikes and I'm glad we did. We were able to do everything on the island travelling on them. Private and quite home as described. We will be back as long as Tim will have us. Couldn't ask for a better owner. Can't wait to return, this has been one of the best vacations we have had. Wahoo says it all.

Thank you again for sharing your lovely home with my parents and us. There was plenty of room to eat at the bar, while one guest had their computer things set up on the generous sized kitchen table. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed to have nice quiet dinners in.
There is almost ZERO light pollution on the Island, which made for some fantastic star gazing. Mosquitoes were fairly thick, but one of the locals said they are simple at a RECORD high this year; we had repellent and weren't bothered too much.
We enjoyed our time at the Wahoo, and certainly on Saint George Island.
Thank you again.

Also, very favorably situated with wonderful walks in every direction. Close to the bay and the beach. The house has a great large deck from which to watch birds, crashing storms, read or just relax and snooze. We had a lovely week.
