“vacation well enjoyed”

Reviewed 7 Jun 2016

The house was wonderful, the owners were great, the beach was magnificent! We normally vacation in the Outer Banks but decided to change this year to warmer water. We found a new spot to vacation! The Owners met us at the house and provided well more than we are use to. The beach was a short walk but well worth it. Small surf, large sand bar so my young ones could enjoy the ocean.

“Always a pleasure staying here”

We have stayed here for 5 years and love this house and st. George. We already have 2 more trips to this house planned this year! It's a great place to go

“Perfect family home!”

Reviewed 20 Oct 2015

Large, spread out home. 4 bedrooms with their own private bath. Lots of porch space, screened and open. Well stocked kitchen, farmhouse table that seats 12. Nice pool, large lot, very private. Bird watchers paradise. Would definitely book again.

Owner's reply: We are so glad you enjoyed our home!

“Simply the best!”

Reviewed 13 Oct 2015

Isolated spot in a well maintained area. Everything was very tidy upon arrival and there were plenty of dishes and silverware, and things of that nature. Couldn't have asked for a better location!

Owner's reply: We hope your group had a wonderful time!

“Perfect Getaway”

Reviewed 11 Aug 2015

Respite is an amazing beautiful house! I'm not sure how but it is even better than the pictures. It is very spacious. Kitchen has everything you need. Bedrooms are set up perfect so each room has their own bathroom. Nice pool. Had beach chairs and umbrellas. Perfect location for beautiful sunsets at a short walk to The Cut - don't miss them even if you think there won't be a sunset there will be something! Short walk and/or bike ride to the path/boardwalk to the beach. Jolly Rogers delivered kayaks to end of street right before boardwalk in Schooners Landing. Just pull them up to the boardwalk each night and enjoy kayaking in the Gulf. We encountered lots of pods of dolphins and got great pictures! We found lots of shells at low tide. Private seclusion in the landscaping and very peaceful. Owners sprayed for mosquitos and I didn't see one in August! Screened in porch was the best...high cathedral ceiling and fans! Furniture and beds were all very comfortable. Had a great meal and service at Harry A's (new owners since the last time I was there). Beach Pit and BJ's Pizza was good. Go to Aunt Ebby's for ice cream (new owners). One scoop was more than one scoop for less than $3.50! El Jalisco for breakfast (Friday and Saturdays) and chicken fajitas...affordable and really good! Red Pirate Grill for affordable meal and good! Up the Creek Raw Bar was excellent with great view! Take an airboat ride to see the baby gators with Apalachicola Airboat Adventures and Captain Larry. Rent bikes from Island Adventures ($42.50 includes delivery and pick-up). Shopping in Apalach at locally owned stores..cute old fashioned downtown with character along the river. Listen to Oyster Radio 100.5 WOYS. Stay at Respite and you have the perfect beach vacation! You'll want to go back guaranteed!

Owner's reply: Angie, thank you for such an awesome review! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Respite and hope you will come back soon! Robert & Diana

“Respite Delite”

Reviewed 27 Jun 2015

Our family has stayed at several homes on St. George Island over the years and they have all been nice, but I think we found the perfect place for our family vacation for years to come. Respite was the perfect combination of home and comfortable beach home with all of the amenities and comforts we desired. Perfectly situated between the bay side and the beach side, Respite provided a great place for all of us to gather and enjoy each other's company. The wide open floor plan and huge kitchen/dining area was perfect for our family to spend the quality time we were seeking with our daughters and grand children. Everything with the property was just as the Vosslers had described . The home was clean, well maintained and very comfortable. Diane and Robert were very friendly to our daughter upon arrival and treated us as if we were close friends. Our grand children enjoyed playing at the beach (only a short walk) and we enjoyed the beautiful sunsets every evening at the Government Cut. We are looking forward to returning next year. The Reynolds family.

Owner's reply: We are so glad your family enjoyed your time at our little piece of paradise! And we look forward to being your hosts for many years to come!

Fantastic house, beautiful grounds! I was stunned when we first arrived at how beautiful, large and well designed the place was. The pictures really don't do it justice! Nice sized, very private pool with plenty of sun and shade. Wrap around porch with several seating areas, to enjoy various aspects of the property. Enormous great room, again with plenty of seating options. Fully stocked kitchen with everything and more you could possibly need. The bedrooms are spacious and private. Each with its own full bathroom. The walk to the (nearly private) beach is a beautiful 10 minute stroll (5 minute bike ride). My family and I had the best time and would not hesitate to stay at this home again!

Owner's reply: Thank you. We're glad you had a great time. we look forward to seeing you soon.

“Tallahassee Family”

Reviewed 15 Aug 2014

The pictures do not do this house justice. It was large, comfortable and perfect for our family get-away. Each bedroom has its own bathroom. The "bunk room" was great for my son and his 2 friends. Short walk to a very uncrowded beach that had 2 turtle nests cordoned off - how exciting. We saw dolphins, sea turtles and rays in the water. The boys fished off the pier by the cut. The cozy pool was great for cooling off after the beach or just hanging around in during the evenings. Would love to come back!

Owner's reply: And we would love to have you visit Respite again!


Reviewed 10 Aug 2014

We really enjoyed our stay at the Respite. The house was amazing. The house was a short distance from the beach and sitting outside in the screened in porch listening to the ocean having our morning coffee was a dream! I would recommend this home to anyone!! The home owners were very accommodating and willing to assist us with ANY request. We can't wait to go back!

Owner's reply: We are so glad that you all enjoyed Respite!

“Wonderful Week!”

Reviewed 13 Jul 2014

We enjoyed our time at Respite immensely! The home is very well cared for, and the Vosslers have thought of everything to make their guests feel comfortable. Our party consisted of family ranging in age from 15 to 45, and everyone found plenty to do. The beach and cut are just a short walk or bike ride from the home, and both are easily accessible. The pool is very private and was an added bonus to our much needed family vacation. We were on SGI for our daughter's wedding, and the house provided just the right amount of sanctuary from the busy events of the week. In fact, we were doubly blessed by having the opportunity to spend such a special time with family and to have found such an inviting place to do it. Our adult children are already asking us to book again in the future. What more could we ask for!!! Much thanks to the Vosslers for allowing us to enjoy their fabulous home!

Owner's reply: We are so glad that everything worked well for your family! We look forward to booking your next vacation at Respite!
