Amazing house! Clean and cozy.
Tim’s home is super clean and super cozy. The layout of the home lends itself to family time. The whole back of the house are glass windows opening into a large deck. The kitchen and living area merge into this deck area so. I sky and one of the three bedrooms opens straight onto the deck. When in the deck you are surrounded by green trees and there is a feeling of actually being in the trees with the numerous birds. We watched a red shouldered hawk right off the balcony argue wirh two northern flickers. Cotton bedding. The kitchen is well appointed. A new washer and dryer complete the package. Tim is very easy to deal with. So not hesitate to rent this property.

BBQ Fun!
This was a great place to stay while we were at our BBQ contest. The house was very clean and had everything we needed. Tim was great to work with on coordinating the reservation. I left some shirts down there and he kindly had them shipped back to me promptly.

Great weekend!
What a nice place to spend a weekend! A quite family friendly place. House is will supplied with everything you need. Beach is just a few blocks and bay is at end on road . We took our golf cart and that was great. Golf cart rentals is on island. The owners are very easy to work with. We had to reschedule due to COVID-19. With no problems at all. Deposit was returned very quickly also. Thank you again for sharing your beautiful home with us. Sandy

Convenient to restaurants, bars, beaches and bay. Close proximity to Apalachicola, state park, and old bridge fishing pier. We kayaked, biked and had a few adult beverages from the local bars.

Perfect get away home on the island
Very clean, quiet, and owner is very courteous. I luckily stumbled across the Wahoo when looking for a place to stay with a group of guys for a long fishing weekend. I will be looking to book the Wahoo again when my wife and I go to St George for a long weekend. It may not be right on the beach, but it is so affordably priced it is well worth it

Had a great 3 night/4 day stay at The Wahoo. The only glitch I had was the wifi not working, but that was not a major inconvenience. Everything else was great, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay on the island. Great area for nightly walks! Beautiful sunsets over the bay. We enjoyed the fresh seafood in Apalachicola multiple times, and shopped in the many shops downtown. The beach was relaxing, and we enjoyed collecting seashells. Thank you Tim! I appreciate you sharing your beach home with us!
Reply: “Thank you Stacy! It was great to have you stay. My apology on the WIFI, it has been corrected.

Thanks Tim for another wonderful stay at WAHOO. We will be returning again. This will be our vacation rental from now on, when we visit the area. To our surprise everything was almost back open except Harry As and the gas station around the corner. It hasn’t been long since hurricane Michael.Thanks again, David G.

We were coming to Apalachicola for a BBQ contest and decided to stay on SGI. I found The Wahoo on the internet and decided to give it a try for 3 days starting Jan 23rd. We enjoyed our stay so much that we went ahead and booked a week beginning on March 31st. The place is very peaceful and a short walk to either the bay or the beach. The bay side is great to view the beautiful Florida sunsets. We can’t wait to return to The Wahoo in March/April.

Relaxing weekend get away

Reviewed on Feb 22 2017 for a stay in September 2016

Had a great trip to SGI and wonderful, comfortable stay at The Wahoo. The owner is very easy to work with, as we had to postpone our trip by a few days due to a hurricane hitting…Tim’s response, “No problem!” Very comfortable for the furry family too. Nice back deck for morning coffee with the sound of the birds in the trees. The only thing that could have made this better was iced down beer and oysters waiting for us when we get there. Maybe Tim can do something about that on our next visit!!!

The Smith’s review

My third trip to the island – have stayed here every time. FYI, love the new floors. I bring my husband and kids here as often as i can, love that it’s dog friendly. 1/2 block from the bay with the most amazing views of the sunset over Apalachacola. We walked to the beach every morning for sunrise and coffee. I think price wise it’s the best deal on the island. We also enjoyed riding our bikes to Harry A’s to eat dinner. Looking forward to coming back next year! Thanks Tim. Sincerly, Paul and Margery Smith

Very very please

This was our first vacation at Saint George Island and we loved it. My family and I were so please with this beach house. It was clean, excellent location and close to the beach. Tim was excellent to deal with and get a response from. The house was just as described and we had no issues whatsoever. Would highly recommend and I would book again. Thanks, Jen & family

The house has a great location to walk to the beach and restaurants. Also a small grocery store not very far. The home is spacious enough and comfortably decorated. The deck makes you feel that you are up in the trees, listening to the birds! The area is beautiful and we would recommend a stay here.

Wahoo was peaceful and welcoming, kitchen had everything we needed and plenty of room to spread out.

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.

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.

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!

Great house!

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!

A very pleasant get away

Reviewed on Apr 09 2015 for a stay in March 2015

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!

Awesome destination…awesome place to stay.

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

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!

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.

Beach Get A Way

Reviewed on Jul 19 2014 for a stay in June 2014

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!

Memorial Holiday at Wahoo

Reviewed on Jun 05 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Our first time visiting the panhandle area and very impressed with the beaches and local area towns. Very quiet and peaceful beaches; lots of dolphins and birds. We loved Apalachicola and Port St. Joe – even stopped in Tallahassee on the drive home. Amenities were great and as advertised; plenty of room, lovely wood floors and lots of windows. Tim was easily available and everything clearly explained. Loved that people could bring their dogs to the beach – made lots of four-legged friends! Next time we’ll rent out kayaks and scooters to explore further. Loved the lighthouse. Great for age 55+ if stairs are not an issue, i.e. luggage.

What a great place to stay! The house is exactly as listed. My family and I (and dog) were here for Thanksgiving and had a wonderful time. I cooked every meal, including a large Thanksgiving dinner in the rental. Needless to say, the kitchen is very well stocked with pans and dishes. The beach is about 5 minute walk away and very nice. The fact that you can take your dog on the beach is a big plus! We will definitely be staying here again! They only part of my rental that was scary was paying with a check. I have always used a credit card, but I understand having that convenience is a hassle and an extra charge for all. I can now say to others, DO NOT BE AFRAID! Tim was wonderful to work with. His communication with me through email for phone calls was outstanding! Thank you Tim for the opportunity to rent from you! We will be back and I have already given your listing to 3 other friends!

We came for spring break and are looking forward to coming back this November for the seafood festival. So glad you were able to accomodate us. Love the house and that we are able to bring our 2 dogs with us. I also love the short walk to the bay for sunsets and that it’s such a short walk to get to the beach. We will definitely be renting the house for next years spring break. Thanks again Tim, The Smith Family

We stayed for a week at Tim’s House. We had four adults and two small children under the age of 6. It was a great time. The back porch is wonderful. It is wooded and you feel like it is your own personal Island. The beach is just a short walk away and the house was well stocked and comfortable. There was plenty of room from privacy and plenty of room for family time. We would stay here again!!!! Tim was also very easy to work with and answered any questions I had quickly before I left for the trip.

We’ve been staying on the island for the last ten years and recently found Tim’s place. We’ve stayed in Tim’s house on our last two trips and it’s by far the best house we’ve found–convenient, comfortable, clean and affordable…easily our home away from home. The perfect place to park your car for a week and hop on a bike. We will definitely be back.

Tim, Thanks so much for the use of Wahoo. We were very comfortable and had everything we needed. I was a bit hesitant about the walk to the beach with the kids, but that was silly. It was a nice little walk. We will definately consider your house again. We loved the beach, but the highlight was Captain Justin at Journey’s who took us to St Vincent Island and Sanddollar Island. It was beautiful. Thanks again!! The Stoios Family

Took my family down to Wahoo at St George not knowing what to expect as we normally vacation on the Emerald Coast, but due to the possibility of oil this year we headed East. Glad we did! It was so great in fact that we spent an extra night! The island and bay area are wonderful! No crowds, no loud parties, loads of animals, great beaches, state park right down the bike path, and the house is very relaxing. Could barely see our neighbors at all! We even had our own colony of tree frogs keep us company on the deck each night. Highly recommend this house and island getaway!
